Two identically constructed robotic arms stand next to a fish bowl containing a robotic fish. One arm catches the swimming fish and puts it on the ground. The other arm collects the fish and throws it back into the water.

This alleged conflict between two robots over a third machine will not develop or change in any way. All participants will continue to play their part according to their code – the fish remains at the complete mercy of both arms while they continue their tasks relentless and unimpressed. Only the observer stands aside waiting for the punch line of this absurd game. Yet the two unemotional, prosaic players and their toy will stick to their routine – over and over again.
