The Book of Sand. [2]

The book that you read, seeking something. [60]

What you want are choices, and the illusion that these choices choices have consequences that are definite. You want to see connection, and to believe that these connections are meaningful, not random. [42]

Choice governed by paranoia. [29]

What you know does not matter, even if you knew. [45]

What you want is meaning, a difference between [I]ts presence and [I]ts absence. [24]

An inventory of imagined stock. [34]

(ii) knowing i, twinned, with opposing goals [44]

Tell me what you see. [45]

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

The Book of Fire. [17]

The machine that will never think. [4]

Reconsider your position. [17]

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.
