if the internet is the JUST the machine, using one is a way of fooling windows into enabling sharing for instance when you aren't connected to a network.
If you want to post a reply here from your machine with a loppback in it's only network card, you are SOL...
UInless you are on dialup.

from your machine to your machine.

it is designed for network aware software to be functional, even if there is no network connection to other systems.

so, you can use internet software through one, it isn't going anywhere but your own system.

and you can test such software, capture and scan packets etc.
