The world is mindful, is minded, has mind. Is it a machine?
When people ask that they're not thinking of a real machine that breaks
down and decays usually.
They're usually thinking of some unbreakable imaginary machine, like a
"Turning machine" that does not actually exist in any museums.
I think it's important to acknowledge that first step away from reality.
"The world / mind / universe is a machine but no machine like you've ever
met except in your dreams -- not counting the universe itself that is,
being as it's a machine and all."
Yeah, right, uh huh, we're making sense now (not).
