The universe of legal construction. The design space in which all legal eagles fly. We all instinctively recognise space, and fill it without a second thought — a legal eagle deplores a vacuum, as the truism has it — and the information revolution has put into our hands the tools to wallpaper the very cosmos with words.

But the relationship between space and tedium has not, until recently, been explored. Pioneering jurisprudo-physicist Otto Büchstein first proposed that it was not space, nor time, but tedium that was the constant in the legal universe, and his paper — six hundred and forty-three pages of it, needless to say, five hundred and ninety-seven of which were assumptions and qualifications — has opened a number of new subfields in the cosmology of the law.

One follows Büchstein’s own hypothesis, which he derived from his earlier paper, that space-tedium is not flat, as was traditionally supposed, but twisted into other, unobserved dimensions of torpor. This phenomenon, which he called the carvature of space-tedium, was first observed in a series of concatenated carve-outs and carve-ins to the professional indemnity insurance policy he was obliged to take out for his own practice.
