Ruse: "I think the machine metaphor rules out an answer to what Martin Heidegger called the 'fundamental question of metaphysics': Why is there something rather than nothing? Unlike Wittgenstein, I think it is a genuine question, but not one answerable by modern science.... I see some questions that it doesn't ask and that neither it nor any other science can answer. One such question is why there is something rather than nothing...."

Au contraire! If I may: see this.
