What You Will Never Know.

Light behind the screen. [22]

combining [41]

(lines follow lines, and in the piling lines) [27]

shorting your circuits [63]

My spine is broken. [1]

The Book of Fire. [17]

The machine we believe will never think. [26]

"the machine is the medium" is the message [11]

Tesseract [62]

The possibility of parallel functions. [50]

The poem is not written by machines. [36]

(while in secret new machines produce new needs) [11]

Tesseract [12]

An apparent change in the direction of the poem, caused by a change in the observational position of the reader. [51]

Like a virus moving inside your skull. [45]

What you want is [I]ts presence. [44]

Tell me what you see. [45]

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

[F]ACE [31]

An ethics in which the artist is perceived as enemy. [39]

If you are going to insist
on a poem, [1]

The Book of Sand. [2]

The book for which they burn you. [35]

The cyborg as perfection. [62]

The architecture of your memory. [40]

The poem continues: [28]

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

Or, perhaps motion is an illusion, as in the case of the book that reads you at its leisure. [7]

[ ]s appear, borne on metal wings. [15]

Steel and your warming sex. [62]

The pages of the book. [16]

They are broken and repaired. [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 book as machine represents a failure of the imagination. [48]

The cliché that you call your soul. [63]

My ribs are splayed open like wings. [64]

But are mistaken. [1]

The Book of Glass. [21]

[EFF]ACE [19]

The psychology of damage. [14]

Apomixis [23]

Arising from errors in the code [5]

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.
