Why do you insist on proposing utterly silly claims like that?

Just think for a microsecond (to not exceed your attention span) about it:
Who started this "linking different works"? The computer? The apps 
themselves? Some strange alpha particle flitting through RAM?

Or could it have been a human being instructing the computer to do it?

There goes your "automated process that cannot add creation"
Just out of curiosity does this actually mean something or have some
of the few remaining bits of your brain just evaporated?
