    It is a way to form order from ideas, an *experimental* philosophy.
    One can apply and implement a philosophy, taking it out of the realm
    of ideas and simulate them in the machine.

    A game of interactions.

    That is called the "editor window" in our world that is displayed on
    an electronic device called a computer display, but in Samael's world
    it is a mirror into our world. He misused it to rape the crown of the
    Hebrew story (found in the Bible).

    No, that is me, Marcos.
