shouldn't first code snippet have 6-7-8 indexes instead of 7-8-9 on the right side? --(this comment by at 19:36, February 9, 2016‎ UTC; please sign your comments with ~~~~)

This seems to be a weird definition of "Zero"

How does this differ from any "von Neumann architecture" machine ? While the ultimate expression of this (heavily self-modifing code) doesn't always work on modern processors, this is because of caching within the processor not architectural design. The end result is that every processor runs the sequence (A) read memory, (B) changes some values, (C) write memory (D) repeat. This is the definition of your 'Zero instruction set computer'. It is even the definition of a universal Turing machine which follows this pattern with the definition of the machine in memory (on the tape) for the ZISC to run it's fetch-execute cycle on.

PS: I guess that means there's a division by zero somewhere in there ;-) Rdebath (talk)
