Just as we know that the computer is created by the one that supplies it, with its needs.
So we are a product of our inviroment! nothing more, nothing less...
However...if you remove any of the supplies the humans need or the computer need, both will stop functioning.

Do you think aliens also might have figured this out....that they are just some type of machine....I wonder how they coped.
I think this is exactly why we aren't being told about the aliens right now.
Why would the aliens go to all the trouble of creating such a complex bio-machine? What are they trying to achieve? What can we do that they can't or don't want to?

A species advanced enough for interplanetary travel, the creation (or at least massive and successful alteration) of life, and all these other wondrous and amazing bits of knowledge and ability, would certainly have a far better and productive method of gathering gold than having naked apes dig it out of their planet's crust.
Maybe they are not just a machine. Maybe just humans are. Maybe by the time you get as smart as them, it really just doesn't matter anymore. I know I would be perfectly content to live a life of leisure without purpose.
...how can nature do what we can’t….?
