    Tetragrammatica - 4,004 Names For The Machine

    Something of a minor pastime I've picked up in the last couple of weeks has been seizing upon various oblique names the Unchained and their angelic kin might use in referring to God. It's been a bit of a fun diversion, so I thought I'd make a thread for it. Feel free to share your own ideas, and in the meantime, a couple that have come to mind:

    The System
    Corporate
    The Assembly
    The Calendar
    [The] Atlas
    The Cosmic Mill
    The Hive
    Quarterly
    Grandfather Clock

    The Blind Watchmaker
    Idiot Is
    The Library
    The Gear Enchiridion

    In my head, the God-Machine is programmed in a balanced-ternary type base among the quaternions. For those of you who don't know, the quaternions are defined thusly:

    {±1, ±i, ±j, ±k | i² = j² = k² = ijk = -1}

    It gives a symbol-list of 9 elements, arranged in an overlapping 4-dimensional cross. The actual "software" for the Idiot Is is agent-based - the Angels are fragments of its software, emulated in our poor, poor n-dimensional world. The instructions are similar to the rules of Nomic - recursively and continuously self-revising.

    And that's just the first layer.

    The "Internet of Things" is the concept of an internet that works not only with computers, but also other hardware like appliances and cars. For example, a Smart House.

    The Wheel Within All Wheels.

    I choose Wheel because it's one of the two components of a gear, the other being teeth. The name is a reference to how the G-M can be behind all sorts of mysteries and strangeness, always planning and machinating. It's also a reference to the fact that It is a Demiurge figure that keeps the laws/gears of our material reality running as best as It can, without necessarily being the true Creator.
