A Mimix machine (or just a mimix ) can contain a list of canon, worlds, streams, views, and atoms as well as metadata about the machine itself. This represents the entire physical or virtual machine the user is running and all of the canon, worlds, streams, views, atoms, and metadata it knows about.
(m david (w books (s nuclear-book (c periodic-table) (c your-friend-the-atom) (v draft (@intro (@p1) (@p2)) (@chapter-1 (@p3) (@p4)))) (s cloud-control (c characters) (c locations) (v draft (@chapter-1 (@p1) (@p2))))))
This MSL describes a machine
(m david) with a world
(w books) where two books are being authored. Each book is located inside a stream,
(s nuclear-book) and
(s cloud-control). Each stream begins with canon like
(c periodic-table) that provides fallback values to atoms that follow it. Each book's text sits inside a view like
(v draft) that consists of several atoms such as
(@chapter-1). A reference to an atom by its key alone like
(@p1) retrieves the last value of that atom.
