Taxonomy and tribe; gender and globe; state, sex, and system. We're categorization machines: it would sound like a weak generalization if it weren't such a persistent impulse. We survey exteriors and interiors. We reform law and language in a quest to codify identity. The more terrain we successfully chart, the wider, deeper, more tortuous we find the human landscape. How manifold are the ways we can map our worlds?
