Sorry - new here. But I've been deep in the trenches of the Nolan universe out on my own blog and didn't even know this was here. Call me naive. Regardless...
This bit is one of the key points that proves that the machine does not work. That it actually doesn't duplicate anything. Think about it... Borden sends Angier on a wild goose chase and Angier accidentally finds the goose?! No, no no... that makes no sense. But to think that Borden & Tesla were in league - that Borden planned in advance to take Angier for all he was worth? That I buy.
Again, sorry for missing out on this board until now. Feel free to see the entirety of my argument against the machine working here: http://taylorholmes.com/2009/08/26/the-prestige-explained/ I obviously can't do it justice here. I'm sure this board will disagree heartily with my opinion - but I welcome the discussion seeing as though most people (even Nolan fans) have completely misunderstood this movie.
