BTW I woke up this morning with a ridiculous thought going through my brain, "There are two Turing machines inside you..." While still trying to figure out which way was up, I followed it up with, "Oh no. But I'm out of infinite tape." ... Brains are weird.

@cstanhope why would you ever need two? You could just simulate the other one with the first one...

@quark It's probably for redundancy in case one ever breaks down. ;)

I was going to point out that turing machines are single-threaded (single-taped?) ... but then I remembered that cooperative multitasking is (was?) a thing...
