The Machine may be thought of as its ideal typology of text materials.
The Writing Machine, as we may call it, is the hypothetical 'apparatus' that may be supposed to be a machine that includes its performances and that can actually function. It is its conceptual set of instructions. It is its abstract set of rules that includes its abstract class of instructions. The Machine is its theoretical form of text materials. Writing Machine: the entity in this thesis that may be conceived of as a machine that consists of its actions and that may be constructed - or not. A writing Machine: hypothetical entity, its abstract set of symbols that consists of its hypothetical form of symbols. It can be its abstract class of behaviours that is identical with its hypothetical class of activities. Such a machine, as we may term it, is the hypothetical 'maker' that may be thought of as a machine that comprises its elements and that functions. The Writing Machine, as we may deem it, is the abstract writer that may be accepted as a machine that is identical with its activities that will work.
