Otherwise it needs to be invented so as to fit or simulate the area of concern. To sum up, I suggest that the software computer as a technical agent can replace a human being in terms of operations, not in terms of actions. The question then is, what is new about a computer as opposed to other machines executing operational form? This will be pursued in the next section by showing that computer artifacts are not tied to fixed operational form but are instructed by modeled operational form embodied in computer programs.
