There is an area of mediaeval thought called Teratology which concerns the
study of monsters.  The monster being seen as multiple and paradoxical:  it
is what it is not.  It sits on the edge of what can logically be known and
understood.  The monster becomes a way of exploring the systems and
processes which operate on matter and create form in the natural world,
particularly within the states of opposition and simultaneity.  These are
spaces where opposing elements can inhabit the same space, fused and yet
separate, formed and yet formless.
