Comment: "The universe is a machine. And everything in it is the "submachine" of it, we human being included. Some machines only have hardware, and others have hardware and software at the same time. For our human being, the software saved in our brain and DNA and controls the movement of our hardware. We can make a greater machine than us. So artificial-intelligence can do everything."
