This chapter deals with the relationship between technology and nature. Technology can supplant and replace nature. Nature must first lack some characteristics and then technology should be capably drafted into nature. Hence, nature may lack shelter, therefore, with technology, houses can be built. More thought however arises from this simple consideration. Accordingly, technology does not arise from outside nature but has a place in it and must be defined as one of nature's ends. Like nature, technology undergoes its own development. There is therefore construction and deconstruction, and what lies beyond these two terms is struction. The word struo is defined as “to amass” or “to heap.” (The con in construction does not mean order.) Struction is a byword of technology because there is destruction on the ensemble without regard to nature. This struction and the words related to it are then supposed or assumed with the idea of the universe as a schema that contains architecture, a foundation, a construction, even possibly, a subtraction (a word used by Mallarme). But good sense makes all this stop through destinerrance or simply put, the continued advancement and of going.
