A computer is a processing machine. Not a thinking machine.
It subordinates all things into processed information, anything unmeasurable becomes unimportant.
"Belief" is not a function, yet we now consider what you do (measurable action) to be the equivalent of what you believe (ideological stance).
This linguistic supplantation through analogy -allowing processing to appear as thinking or belief to become simply a function- separates a complicated set of interwoven connections for simplistic measurables: provable feats aligning us to technology and away from humanity.
