THE MACHINE OR THE CONCRETE MASS OF NEGATION AS THE DREAM OF A PRODUCT THAT EXISTS ACCORDING TO THE STATUTE OF THE THING

1. The construction of a machine that is the foundational machine.
1.1 The construction of a machine that serves to bring (a machine) into effect again when the original statute has been repealed.
1.2 The construction of a machine that serves to occupy the utility of a defunct machine.
1.3 The willingness to construct a machine that serves to occupy the space of the machine.
1.4 The willingness to construct a machine bound to the aesthetical basis of the original statute.
1.5 The willingness to construct a machine that supersedes the machine.
1.6 The willingness to construct a machine that supersedes the history of the machine (unknown) with the history of the construction of this machine.
1.7 The willingness to construct (not reconstruct) the machine and the inevitable failure to do so.

2. The negation of the machine with the machine.
2.1 The negation of the defunct machine through the construction of a defunct machine.
2.2 The negation of the space that the machine occupies through the displacement of the machine.
2.3 The negation of the utility of the machine through a process of simplistic construction in wood.
2.4 The negation of the aesthetical basis of the machine through a process of construction in wood.
2.5 The negation of the history of the construction of the machine through wood construction of the machine.
2.6 The negation of the historic functionality of the machine through the construction of a machine with no aspiration toward functionality.
2.7 The negation of the machine in the construction (not reconstruction) of the machine and the inevitable failure to do so.
2.8 The negation of the machine with this machine and not the machine.
