The poem goes on forever, across universes. [1]

The Book of Fire. [17]

The machine that will never think. [4]

The machine above the human. [10]

Biding time, until the day all circuits complete. [32]

The machine as psychoanalyst. [30]

The machine needed. [26]

"the machine is the measure of all things" [30]

The machine copied, [40]

The machine continues, and breaks down. [32]

The work of art in the age of mechanical reduction. [62]

The architecture of your memory. [40]

The poem continues: [28]

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

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

The book as vibration, an occasion of the poem in time and space. [25]

the ink bedding [17]

The machine we believe will never think. [26]

"the machine is going to be perfect" [36]

The machine spawns new machines. [5]

Get these 86 letters. [18]

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.
