addition to the "computers are just magic rocks we tricked into thinking" thing; circuit board layouts are really just weird sigils aren't they?

@troubleMoney this is literally true in Charles Stross's Laundry series, it's much smarter and safer to summon malevolent entities with a computer than holding the algorithms and shapes in your head, little dimensional flora will be attracted to it and bite chunks out of your brain, giving you demonic mad cow disease

@robotcarsley @troubleMoney Always wondered why the Laundry's systems don't futz out with unrecoverable RAM and cache errors all the time. Cosmic rays: meet tiny cosmic horrors

@g1comics @troubleMoney I think it's because silicon isn't as tasty as brainmeats

@troubleMoney Crowley is that you putting sigils of minor demonic intent in my toaster
