Computers only count. Come up with an algorithm for explanation, and

Computers can do much more than counting. Actual computer can compare,
explore, refer to themselves in the 3p- way, refer to themselves in
the 1p way and account of that difference between 1p and 3p. They can
believe, know, observe, feel, and be aware of the difference between
sharable and non sharable knowledge, and all this can be show, from
numbers + reasonable axiomatic definition of all those terms.

machines are and can be.
