The CPU attractor

What is a better use of a state machine fabric than to implement a CPU
in it?  Why is linear / nested execution so useful?

What about this: start with thinking of every machine as a CPU
executing code.  Then implement it by stripping away functionality.

What about flattening programs into linear execution states?

Maybe most of this is about hierarchy of state representation.
