I am interested in any writings connecting (Universal) Turing Machines and horror. The idea of computers being able to imitate the behaviour of

*anything*speaks to me of the monsters and doppelgĂ¤ngers from the Gothic tradition onwards. Know any writings on this? [more inside]## Help me be a (sexy) Turing machine!

I want to be a Turing machine for Halloween. I'm going to be surrounded by language nerds. They'll get it. But I need my 'fancy dress' (aka, costume) to be fantastic and I have limited time, money and supplies. [more inside]

## How is a Turing-complete/equivalent language defined ?

I always thought "Turing-complete programming language" meant you could write a compiler/interpreter/whatever for that language IN that language, ie. XML is not, XSLT is, C++ is for sure, I guess JavaScript could in a way...

Today I tried to check on that, and apparently it's much more abstract... or something... well I don't know for sure.

Was I wrong ? How is a Turing-complete/equivalent language defined ?
