22-24 JUL 05

Recently I learned that the Latin phrase deus ex machina is a calque from the Greek από μηχανής θεός (“apo mekhanes theos”). The Greek version is much cooler and I have, to coin a phrase, portmanteaued a word based on it.

Apomekhanestheism. The use of said plot device. The adjective would be apomekhanestheistic.

No need to thank me.
