Binary is only 1

*(on)* or 0

*(off)*, there aren't any 2s, 4,s or 8s, etc. The number 10 in binary is a 1 and a 0 (in

*binary*), which translates to the number 2 (in

* decimal*), thus, the quote states that there are 2 kinds of people in this world, not 10. Binary is a different numeral system, called base 2, as opposed to the base 10 decimal system we normally use. The pattern 2, 4, 8, 16, 32, 64, 128, etc., is just doubling one number to get the next number in the sequence, (1 x 2 = 2, 2 x 2 = 4, 4 x 2 = 8, etc.), not binary.
