To compute is to be

Today´s quotation is from Charles Stross: Jennifer Morgue:

My stomach flip-flops. No electronics?  That´s heavy. In fact it´s more than heavy: to compute is to be, and all that. I don´t mind going without clothes, but without a microprocessor is truly stripping down. It´s like asking a sorcerer to surrender his magic  wand, or a politician to forswear his lies.
