    ¿La idea cuál es? ¿Que el ser humano se asimile a una máquina perfecta? ¿o que una máquina -un auto BMW, una máquina refinada- se acerque a la perfección o voluntad inconmovible de un hombre decidido? El humano siempre será superior. Tal vez solo por su voluntad. Tal vez solo por su decisiòn de superarse o de encontar un sentido. BMW hace máquinas superiores y bellas, pero no puedo evitar pensar que BMW saca provecho utilitario de la oscilante, monstruosa y bella "máquina" humana. (Disculpen mi ingl`´es, es una primitiva traducción del siempre útil Google)

    Does the idea what it is? What man is assimilated to a perfect machine? Or that a machine-a BMW car, a machine to perfection or unshakable will of a determined man-refined approach? The human will always be higher. Perhaps only by his will. Maybe only for its decision to locate an excel or meaning. BMW makes them superior and beautiful machines, but I can not help thinking that BMW takes advantage of the oscillating utility, monstrous and beautiful human "machine". (Excuse my English '' is, is a primitive translation of the always helpful Google)
