Well, good luck eh? Shafer: might it be that there is a very good reason
why these slippery things have not been 'defined'? Might it be that these
things can't be quantified, and that to apply a scientific version of
signification to them would be utterly reduce their efficacy as slippery
signifiers? What would Deleuze and Guattari say to all this? I'll tell
you: 'NO signifier, never interpret'.
