I took the ellipsis at the end of "0101010101..." to mean it was an indefinitely repeating series of 0s and 1s. That wouldn't translate to 343 or any other number in decimal, just binary digits on and on and on, forever...
I believe that reading out loud the developing instructions for a film or the characteristics of a paper or focusing really hard on a beautiful photograph can result to a religious experience of variable validity.
On the other hand what one does on his knees in a dark red-lit confined space under the influence of chemical fumes is his own business.
One cannot escape the religious undertones that analog photography has in its ceremonies and practices (preparation, developing, printing), but also in the concepts of faith and hope (for the picture to come out alright, for film to continue being available).
Personally, as an aspiring zen buddhist, I like to see the whole thing as a mind clearing, living in the moment, absurd ritual.
