A Binary Code Program Cannot Be Made Back into its Original Source Code

Mark Harrison says you cannot know which two numbers you used to make the final result. It could be any two or more numbers. When you translate the source code that defines a program into an actual program that can be ran on a computer, that actual program is not a mirror image of the source code used to make it. That means different source codes can produce the same resulting program.

If every code ended being .exe, why can’t we turn it back into code?
