Git, complicated? Of course not! Commits map to isomorphic contours in source-code phase space
The inspiration for the classic tweet.
it’s simplest to think of the state of your repository as a point in a high-dimensional ‘code-space’,  in which branches are represented as n-dimensional membranes, mapping the spatial loci of successive commits onto the projected manifold of each cloned repository

git integrity - Google Groups
It seems git's default behavior in many situations is -- despite communicating objectID by content-addressable hashes which should be sufficient to assure some integrity -- it may not actually bother to *check* them.  Yes, even when receiving objects from other repos.  So, enabling these configuration parameters may "slow down" your git operations.  The return is actually noticing if someone ships you a bogus object.  Everyone should enable these.
