The Theory of Undocumented Youth, or any premise cited therein, including but not limited to mothers, motherhood, financial obligations, stunted growth, blocks, shoes in sizes smaller than 6, unfulfilled requests, the population paradox, and excluding pain.
The latter portions of The Theory of Weakness, in which the four forms of failure are outlined. Only two of these are present here, and one serves as a premise for The Law of Procedure, the central principle of which was first formulated after the deaf mathematician cut her leg shaving in the bathtub.
Both Theories of Thirst, though this study does address thirst's negation, but only peripherally.
All theories pertaining to rest, including that which is left when a portion is removed, the name of the symbol used to note silence in song, and the halt of consciousness at night.
All theorems pertaining to divorce. It should be noted, however, that the term divorce is used periodically throughout the study to characterize the negative facets of such paradoxical terms as severance and cleave, as in: "The deaf mathematician thinks of all the things that need to be said, but ultimately don't make it in the draft of her proof; an empty study room of the library, a broom sweeping the corners slowly, the crest of nail fit snuggly between the floorboards, the window, split like fruit down the center, on an angle, the cut's rim brimming with rain, and, sitting in the center of the room, what it means to be divorced from action, or in other words, the nucleus of stillness, invisible and mute" (my italics).
The Theory of Muteness.
The Theory of Accident as it differs from the Theory of Mistake.
The Theory of Sequential Disturbance, in which pain is quantified linearly, as an event that progresses in one direction, then slowly subsides. This is a direct response to the notion that pain adopts the quality of water, and therefore overcomes in the form of a wave.
The Theory of Channeled Disappointment, excluding the principle of refraction, which is addressed here through the chapters pertaining to spoons. It should be noted, however, that there are portions of this study that address the third pillar of this theory, but only where it intersects with that which is opaque, such as puddles that form after the rain in gravel driveways that are not longer used, because the homes they lead to are empty.
The Theory of Appropriate Behavior, as it applies to meals, courting and bereavement. However, this study does address its application in the context of place, specifically the arena of a library.
The Theory of Deft Ends, though ends addressed here are deft, and this study qualifies such as sad.
The Theory of Specified Yearning, as related to the singular trajectory of want. That want extends in one direction is a myth, as longing pertains to people (the photographer, the mathematician, the child who died in front of the library when he did not look both ways before crossing the one way street), places (the bathtub, the darkroom, the mouth), and items (spoons, trees, cigarettes, empty photo frames, debt), as a web or net that is cast like a shadow over event.
All theorems pertaining to transmission, including but not limited to; disease, public transit, and the act of being carried to bed by a lover or father or person who is strong that the subject really cares about, both while asleep and while pretending to be.
The Theory of Easily Dismantled Adoration, as this does not exist.
