SO why switch words - from "mind" to "world"?

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).
