When I Looked At The Sky, I Saw Clouds Forming Chains.

My spine is broken. [1]

The Book of Glass. [21]

[EFF]ACE [19]

What is revealed. [59]

Parallel vibrations, in dissimilar universes. [45]

What you want is [I]ts absence. [21]

[F]ACE [31]

An aesthetics in which the audience is perceived as enemy. [4]

Reconsider your position. [17]

The machine we believe will never think. [26]

"the machine is in the machine" [33]

The desire: to work, to perform the task for which it was designed. [50]

Clothing the Word in flesh, so that it might finally die. [63]

My ribs are splayed open like wings. [64]

But are mistaken. [1]

The Book of Sand. [2]

The book for which they burn you. [35]

The cyborg as fiction, not science. [13]

The illusion of cause and effect: from above, a line; from beyond, a collapsed point. [12]

A parallax machine, which produces parallaxes. [55]

The direction of the force. [18]

Concurrent Read Exclusive Write [16]

They are broken and repaired. [13]

"[T]here is no a priori improbability in the descent of conscious (and more than conscious) machines from those which now exist, except that which is suggested by the apparent absence of anything like a reproductive system in the mechanical kingdom. This absence however is only apparent, as I shall presently show." [15]

Steel and your warming sex. [62]

The cathedrals, the pillars, the halls. [64]

You turn the page. [1]

The Book of Fire. [17]

The machine that will never think. [4]

The human above the machine. [40]

The poem continues: [28]

But in fact it is the garden that moves. [38]

And when it tires, fold you close. [56]

What you hold here aspires towards zero, a point on a shivering, looped line. [63]

This online application automatically generates rule-abiding nonlinear readings of Ex Machina, as originally written by Jonathan Ball, whose first print edition was published by BookThug in 02009.

This literary stress-test assists in performing a qualitative analysis under the following hypothesis: nonlinear constructions of Ex Machina are semantically and poetically inferior to the first linear construction. The methodology is adjustable due to lack of instruction in the original text, but the current simulation available is limited due to media porting instability. (In this case, a textuality deficiency with regards to physical media.)

The equivalent null-hypothesis would therefore state that rule-abiding nonlinear structures would make an equal or greater amount of sense as a linear reading of the original manuscript.
