Or is it a conflation(ish) with process?
Or maybe its a problem when a conversion to function is imperative – axiomatic perhaps? – in mind?
Whichever, I think its interesting to, at least, note that indeed before the automation process, no disrespect, there is a search that folds into the algorithm. Its a sequence.
However culturally and socially – def artistically – I think the search part of the sequence, and its set, should be noted as the algorithm – no?
