States are the conceptual and physical constructions of borders – however tenuous – to define ideas and purport control. They are artifices presented as logic, defended as truths, manipulated as oppressions. Fluid and influenceable, we can recreate and redefine the states of the world today. The borders we establish, whether they are physical borders between nations or intellectual borders defining ideas, these constructs of self, country, object, subject, concept can be challenged and pushed into states of flux. In the realm of facts and truths, it is important to recognise that knowledge and understanding are not fixed entities. They evolve over time as new evidence emerges, perspectives shift, and societies progress.
