Then how does one manage to negotiate the surface of Mars and another to drive through the streets of Los Angeles.

You associate the images with Mars or Los Angeles, not the computer.

Not 'images', 'representations' (check your reading accuracy). And they do have representations of Mars and streets and signal lights and pedestrians; otherwise they could not successfully navigate. And no human need interpret the representations.

I agree. Computer science can be defined by the study of digital representations and the manners to handle them.
