on how a plate can be a platform

“What do you want, brick?” Louis Khan

What does a plate want to be? A cup? A saucer?
What do they need to do vs. want to do vs. COULD POSSIBLY DO?

What makes it a plate – is it the flat surface for holding food, the lip that holds things like mashed potatoes in, the space to set your silverware on in a restaurant to show the server that you are, indeed, done with your dinner?
And if it has to have certain things, like parts inside machines that drive the ID on the outside ((thanks, Leffler)), then what are those things, and how can I make them my own??
