I have not reached out to Terrence Malick to ask if he’s read ‘Machine’, but it’s widely reported that he had been developing a project about the origins of life since the late 1970s.By 2007 the idea has taken shape in a script incorporating elements inspired by Malick’s childhood in Austin – where he grew up as the oil-rich grandson of Syrian and Lebanese Christian immigrants – and the lingering emotional wound left by the suicide of his younger brother in 1968.This personal tragedy informs the world-weariness of Sean Penn’s character in the present-day scenes that bookend The Tree of Life, as well as that of Christian Bale’s protagonist in Malick’s latest, Knight of Cups.“I guess it’s a coincidence, a nice little one,” Adophsen says.An English-language version of ‘Machine’ was published in 2007, around the time my girlfriend was indulging her wanderlust by reading all the translated Scandinavian literature she could get her hands on.I was interested by her description of ‘Machine’: the book is one of those stories that follows a particular object through space and time as it interacts with different objects and people, each opening up into its own distinct, digressive world, and I probably thought it was a neat, familiar metaphor for the web of life.I had seen The Tree of Life when it came out in 2011, and when I picked up ‘Machine’ two years later I had a vague inkling that the novel and movie had a similar hook: the ancient past and familiar present, together in a chain of causality. Like many small-press authors, Peter Adolphsen maintains a very active social media presence, and had friended my girlfriend on Facebook after she reviewed ‘Machine’, though they’d never actually spoken.I sent him a message to ask if he’d ever seen The Tree of Life. Over email, Adolphsen describes ‘Machine’ as “in the genre of (fairy tales about objects).” After a brief overture, the novel, which you can read in about an hour, starts at the very beginning: the Big Bang – the expansion of time and space outwards from a single point, and the formation of the elements and everything else, “from amino acids to galaxy clusters.” The same quantity of matter has always existed, writes Adolphsen, in various recombining forms, and it is one particular piece of matter that ‘Machine’ follows.
Cellular decomposition, putrefaction and the heat of the earth take their course – over several million years and a couple of pages – and the matter that had once composed the animal’s heart becomes a single droplet of oil, which is extracted in the 1970s from the Utah oilfield where an Azerbaijani immigrant named Jimmy Nash works.
It is eventually pumped into the gas tank of a Ford Pinto, turns to engine exhaust, and is inhaled by the car’s owner, who, some decades later, shows up on the narrator’s doorstep coughing up blood – dying of cancer spread by that very particle that was once something else’s heart.
Adolphsen tells me that though he’s eager to see The Tree of Life, he was previously unaware of its similarities with his book.
