A haiku written by Lee Sonogan
Can be taken to mean “god by reason of the machine’. – Latin Definition
If the trees could talk,
Literary expound vult,
Break the quirk deadlock.
“Deus ex machina not only erases all meaning and emotion, it’s an insult to the audience. Each of us knows we must choose and act, for better or worse, to determine the meaning of our lives…Deus ex machina is an insult because it is a lie.” ― Robert McKee, Story: Substance, Structure, Style, and the Principles of Screenwriting
