How could a machine be racist if it is totally incapable of any form

Not according to me, I'm going along with Bruno. By his view, I am a
machine, or a product of a machine, so if I am racist against
machines, then it is inevitable that there will be machines who are
similarly racist against humans or biology - the only difference
being that they may be placed in a position to exert much more
control on the world.
I don't remember Bruno saying that. (Unless one considers arithmetic
to be a machine?)
Yes, if I understand his view correctly, Bruno considers arithmetic
to be behind mechanism, mechanism to be behind awareness, and
awareness to be behind physics.
Computationalism makes arithmetical truth enough for the TOE, but this
works only because arithmetic seen from inside is much bigger and much
more complex than arithmetic. But I do not hide that I start from
mechanism, which is an hypothesis about consciousness (its invariance
for some digital transformation). Then the result, that is the logical
consequence, is that Arithmetic is a TOE realm, and physics becomes
derivable in the theology of the numbers.
What you said was a bit fuzzy.
