Dude! It's times like this I think you are trolling, that you cannot be serious. In any case, if you are really that confused, let me point something out: 1. The English language comes with a lovely instruction manual called a dictionary. 2. There is no debate about what the term EX MACHINA means, except in your own head.3. One of the rules of speaking English is that you don't get to make up definitions for words.4. However there is no specific rule that prevents you from being confused and obstinate, so splurge on that. HELPFUL TIP: Here is your absurd logic. Somebody makes a movie called "THE THIN RED LINE: There is no debate about what the title means. It is an expression in the English language that has a well-established definition. Literate people know what it means or have the ability to look up the reference. It is analogous to "THE THIN BLUE LINE" descriptive about police, wherein the color blue represents cops blue uniform and how they represent a very thin line indeed that separates the vicious criminals of society--and prevents/protects the citizens from becoming their victims. MORE AT THIS LINK. Nobody has any problem understanding what the word "RED" means. But you come along and start debating it, acting like there is so much confusion swarming about it's meaning, LOL. Only you are confused (or trolling). Then someone gives you an explanation of what the word "red" means--and provides a link to the word "red" in the dictionary. It's a color. (That was hard, right? LOL) But this doesn't satisfy you. Then you begin posting nonsensical things that say "While I wholeheartedly AGREE that it is a color, the title of the movie ACTUALLY means something else. The word "red" means "a really small font". You then go on to cut-n-paste dictionary contents that show that the word "red" is a homonym for the word "read". Then you gleefully explain that the movie's director did not specify what he meant by "The Thin Red Line", so it is perfectly correct that it means someone read a "thin line" of print. Ergo, it means the font size was very small. And then you begin cutting and pasting all kinds of mental case theories about how nobody really knows what the phrase means. Dude, are you trying to convince us that you are really that stupid? Or just trolling? LOL Try not making up your own definitions for words. You might begin to understand what others are talking about. And if you shockingly discover that you don't understand something, why don't you just humbly learn it, instead of flamboyantly "resisting" knowledge, arguing that words don't have meanings and appearing entirely foolish?
