More seriously, numbers; like machines, like humans can show the best and the worst. Matter? It is a phenomenological reality. And I don’t think it is bad of good per se, although in fine it is the roots of suffering. Torture needs material bodies, even in arithmetic. It does not need primitive material bodies, like a nightmare can illustrate. The arithmetical reality contains hellish places, like the computations associated to lasting pain. Mater is, from inside, what makes the “lasting” possible, of pain, of hope, of pleasure, etc. In arithmetic, universal machine have partial control. Let us try to avoid those places as much as possible.
