Can we skip this thread. It seems you are arguing the point that any 
machine can behave like any other machine, which has already been proven 
to be true 50 years ago.

And then it just becomes a question of some things being easier or 
harder than other things, which is very subjective.
So this seems like a totally pointless argument and thread. Of course 
any computer can implement any program, within the limits of available 
memory. It's already known.
