When all you have is a hammer, everything looks like a nail, kid.
Good luck with your simple formula for "winning" - next time. It failed you this time, meat boi.
the 'nail' here is that you are apparently unable to really grasp the concept of an emergent property.
There are, of course, superstitious savages who would probably think that if I play chopin on a piano, that the music is somehow trapped inside the piano, and if the piano is destroyed the music would 'go somewhere'...as 'energy' or something. Its perfectly fine for you to accuse me of arrogance that I dismiss this sort of thinking. It is indeed a sort of arrogance. But naturally, that doesnt make it wrong.
