Your understanding of the issues is good. Q1: It's not overkill at all. All of the elements you've mentioned are needed. Q2: The low-pass filter frequency needs to significantly attenuate all frequencies above 1/2 the sampling frequency. It makes sense for a 'low fi' arrangement to reduce the filter frequency a bit so as to simplify filter design which ...

The Bekenstein Bound sets the theoretical maximum storage density for storage media, which is equal to the entropy of a black hole of the same volume, or roughly: $$I<=\frac{2πkRE}{ħc\ln2}$$ where I is the information expressed in number of bits contained in the quantum states in the sphere. This works out to $$2.5769082 × 10^{43} × M × R$$ where M is ...

Physical limits are related to the advance in technology. 20 years ago for humans, transistors of 1 nm were unimaginable. The limit that you mention can be established by the actual technology, but we can not set the physical limit: maybe in the future, we will store data in atoms or something like that. Maybe the question will be better like this "What'...

They are the extremes of the voltage at the input which define the required 0 and 1 logic levels. On the data sheet Logic 1 must be at least 2.0v and logic 0 less than 0.8 to function properly.
