The above example of "logic" is based on CIRCULAR LOGIC. Your conclusion can only be read out of these sentences if you already believe your conclusion. For those of us who do not believe your conclusion, your above sentences are irrational and illogical.
For someone who does not hold your conclusion as accurate, your statement above reads thusly: "A program called #1 is running on a system while a redundant program called #2 is running on a redundant system, and when you eliminate program #1 by removing its hardware platform, you will see that program #2 is still running, and by renaming program #2 to now be called program #1, you will see that program #1 remains unaffected by its hardware shutdown."
