More or less experimental theories and theory drafts from the fields:

It is an interrelated collection of ideas and arguments whose basal complexity is far greater than that of comparable projects. However, this large basal complexity makes it possible to dispense with vast amounts of additional hypotheses that are often inconsistent with each other, so that the overall complexity could be reduced. For the most part, the work consisted of rearranging already known ideas and arguments in a more complex way, thus addressing the weaknesses, gaps, and contradictions of existing theories. After selecting the theories worked on, the whole could be described as a salad of hot potatoes. That is, of theories that are already individually so complex that they are hardly connectable, and it is therefore difficult to build an academic career on them. The whole thing moves in a field of tension between autodidactic joy of theorizing and autoaggressive self-sabotage.
