re: Well, when you have a CPU, the lowest programming language that most of us, mere mortals, can write for the CPU is assembler. What C compiler does...
 

I agree with you for the most part, but that last paragraph is baseless.

I can insert assembler to Common Lisp and Rust. Both of those out match Python, Javascript, or C++ in abstraction power, so by definition, they are high languages. That doesn't mean that they can't reach down to lower levels of abstraction when they need to do so.
