Tower of Babel
Computer languages designed to mess with your head.
According to the story, a united human race in the generations following the Great Flood, speaking a single language and migrating eastward, comes to the land of Shinar (שִׁנְעָר). There they agree to build a city and a tower tall enough to reach heaven. God, observing their city and tower, confounds their speech so that they can no longer understand each other, and scatters them around the world.

- Universal Turing Machine in Conway’s Game of Life – A Turing machine constructed using the predictable outcomes of random-looking mating patterns. This is really very impressive.
