    Then you're looking for Python, or Scratch.com

    The concept you want to look up is "natural language programming". At present time it is more of an ambition than anything truly usable and probably will be for decades to come. On the other hand with high level languages you see very real work being done all the time (python is indeed the glue that holds modern computing together) and even if you have to sit there and piece together syntax/remember which style of brace to use you can still do real work. Anything simpler I usually find to be too restrictive to do anything useful, some kind of esoteric language (not truly esoteric like brainfuck or something but... see for yourself http://inform7.com/ ) or some kind of teaching tool (I just saw scratch mentioned, that would be a good example there).

    Creating the entire executable from scratch in binary code would be better.

    OH GOD AHAHAHAHA
    Anyways, OP I know what you are aksing, but I really would suggest your rethink your mindset. Computers and human brains do not work the same way. You are going to need to modify your thinking if you want to be able to program. STart with something that makes the most sense as a starter language like C.
