I see that I have managed to not to explain myself in such a way to be

Your lovely machines (whichever they are) live *only* because there
someone (you or another human person) to make it work and appreciate the
results. They *only* live in your (or somebody else's) mind. And that is

appreciate but the sentiments, feelings, joy and sadness of the people
who used them!
