Look at this power switch - Text

| means on and O means off. I say they represent a closed and open circuit while a friend says they represent binary code.

Who is right here?

Binary? WTF? Never heard that before.

Open and closed circuit. Makes the most sense to me

I just couldn't find a link with a definitive answer.

Wait... wait...

In a sense you're both right.

A circuit can either be closed or open, and this is the fundamental inspiration for binary.
