"The idea is to inject fragments from other writing into one’s sentences, so that the reader is suddenly reading someone else, and then you again. Technically, this is done by changing font style and size. Sometimes there is another voice within the appropriated voice. In it’s original conception, this process continues inwards until the words are no longer visible.

"Although I didn’t use it until electronic hypertext became available, I discovered invaginational theory while writing the notes for Thomas Merton’s Woods, Shore, Desert. (Museum of New Mexico Press, 1983), in which Merton quotes from someone an ends the sentence either with his own words or from a different source, without any indication as to what he had done. Whether he did this on purpose, I have no way of knowing." J. Weishaus. "Interview with Joel Weishaus." Muse-Apprenitce Guild, November 2003. www.muse-apprentice-guild.com
