This chapter argues that fields circulate and order folds as degrees of flux, but that fields can also combine themselves into larger and smaller knotworks based on their shared circulations and folds. A knot is thus the intersection of two or more fields at two or more of the same folds or junctions. In a kinetic knot, each field remains distinct but also becomes connected at specific junctions to other fields, making possible a series of shared or collective qualities and quantities. Folds are what tie the knots together. Two fields are knotted together by their shared affects, but these shared affects can also produce their own field in turn: a knot. The chapter develops a theory of knots, nests, pores, and knotworks.
