let me try Java/JVM relationship: in computer/java terms - JVM=processor, java=logic telling processor what to do. in human terms - JVM=brain, java=signals/nerves send to brain (JVM) what to do such that person can move limbs or react to hot/cold things. in car terms - JVM=engine, java=driver telling engine when to change gear/speed or brake etc.
