Computers, code and consciousness

Cumputers cannot simulate human activities or experiences
or consciousness because they have to deal in code.

Code is not magic, have no inherent intelligence.
Computers are not magic, they are just machines.

Computers can only deal in code, which is impersonal and
public. They are noit experiences, but can be descruiptions
of experiences, which is not the same thing.
Unfortunately, experiences are 
personal and computers, dealing in code only,
have no access to them.  

Why must I keep explaining this ? 

Computers deal in code.
People don't
