Slide 3: Four single line profile faces in white facing each other. The one on the left has questions, "Who am I? Where am I?" the face on the right has says, "Why oh why? There are so many questions." Between the left and right faces are two curve lines connecting them. In the middle is "Who Am I is Who I am.'

Slide 8: One map of the cosmos I crafted called [Unfolding] Queer Cosmologies. In the middle is slide 7. It is surrounded by a circle. It is connected to two other circles on its left and right. The left and right circles have three lines extending from them further left of further right, respectively. The left and right circles are also connected by an arch on the top and bottom.
Slide 9: Another map of the cosmos building off [Unfolding] Queer Cosmologies that incorporates the spiral. In the middle is Slide 8. The middle, left, and right circles are now all connected and look like a larger infinity symbol. The left and right circles also spiral in on themselves.
Slide 10: Slide 10 is in the middle and it is connected by lines to circles above, below, to the left, and to the right of it. The top, bottom, left, and right circles all have arches extending from them towards the direction they are placed. The top and bottom circles and connected by two arches that do not intersect the center Slide 10. The left and right circles are connected by arches that do not intersect the center Slide 10. All four outer circles are also connected by arches between them.
Slide 11: The most recent Queerly Complex Cosmos map that shows a meta relationship between things. In the center is the Here Now, which has underneath it Slide 10. It also has what appears to be an explosion under it. Extending from this center is a pink spiral that creates a space over which 8 circles are placed. In the Center Left is What Came Before. In the Center Right is What is Possible. In the Center Top is All Relations. In the Center Bottom is All Ancestors. In the Upper Left is Ideas. In the Bottom Left is Values. In the Top Right is Paths. In the Bottom Right is Dreams. There is an infinity floral loop extending from the Here Now into All Relations, then Ideas, then What Came Before, then What Is Possible, then Paths, then All Relations, then Here Now, then All Ancestors, then values, then What Came Before, then Here Now, then What Is Possible, then Dreams, then All Ancestors, then Here Now, and thus completes the loop. Outside of the pink spiral on the left is The Unknown. Outside of the pink spiral on the right is The Unknowable.
