I think they are assembled there. Parts may come from anywhere.
Turtles all the way down, again.
Anything I've missed about turtles? Or about a recent US novel?
I simply meant that I would consider the assembly of the calculator to be the 'making' of them. My interpretation of the argument I am countering is that the parts are from elsewhere and, therefore, the calculator was not made in Michael's apartment; however, those parts were made from other parts, which were made from other parts, and so on.

I've read no recent novels, but I was refering to this: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Turtles_all_the_way_down

The Earth is supported on the back of a turtle. The turtle is standing on the back of another turtle which is standing on the back of another turtle which is...
So it's turtles all the way down.

For those of us that are unable or unwilling to ponder such profound philosophical paradigms, there is always this alternative:

Big fleas have little fleas upon their backs to bite 'em,
And little fleas have lesser fleas, and so, ad infinitum.

(By the way, the last turtles reference: viewtopic.php?f=16&t=304&p=4100&hilit=Turtles#p4100

I like turtles.)

Almost. Similar considerations let Demokrit create the concept of atoms some 2600 years ago.

Democritus, as recorded by Aristotle, if my memory serves me correctly, and despite the disagreements with Plato, the idea of infinite regression bears a resemblance to the allegory of the cave.

Regardless, I would say the calculator was made in Michael's apartment, lest I have to concede it was made by the Big Bang...

But before that? There be turtles.

I am assuming they are made in Switzerland, but I do not see a "made in" anywhere on the outside or in any info received ..maybe it says "made in..." on the inside somewhere I do not know.

That is odd.
Most countries proudly put stickers showing its origins.
Probably there is a law in Switzerland allowing some products to be marketed with a more relaxed requisites.
