That is a particularly extreme way of putting it. All descriptions
must be discrete, but this doesn't mean the continuum is not
engaged. For one thing, it does not require a discrete space
time. There are plenty of examples of non-discrete countable sets (eg
the rational numbers), and plenty of examples of discrete descriptions
of continuous objects, albeit incomplete ones.
