Consider a fictional multiple integral equation that is a flawed trope and a serious joke in an effort to picture what an intersectional or intra-actional theory might look like in Terrapolis. Think of this formalism as the mathematics of sf. Sf is that potent material semiotic sign for the riches of speculative fabulation, speculative feminism, science fiction, science fact, science fantasy and, I suggest, string figures. In her text, Donna J. Haraway, author of the influential „A Cyborg Manifesto“ (1985), devises the formula for a possible world, Terrapolis, and places it in connection to string figures, which, as pictures of cosmological constellations and creation myths, constitute a popular cultural practice among the Navajo to this day.
