Machine Language

Machine language is a collection of binary digits or bits that the computer reads and interprets.  Machine languages are the only languages understood by computers. While easily understood by computers, machine languages are almost impossible for humans to use because they consist entirely of numbers.

Example one :

Machine Language
169 1 160 0 153 0 128 153 0 129 153 130 153 0 131 200 208 241 96

High level language
5 FOR I=1 TO 1000: PRINT "A";: NEXT I

Example two :

Let us say that an electric toothbrush has a processor and main memory. The processor can rotate the bristles left and right, and can check the on/off switch. The machine instructions are one byte long, and correspond to the following machine operations.
