This article examines the consequences of the change, in Legal Studies, from particular or restricted theorizing to general theorizing, and how this relates to politics and philosophy. After explaining the abandonment of methodological nationalism that characterized it, and proposing an analogy of this displacement with the modern mathematical revolution, it opposes a sized and interlacing topology to the punctual logic of subordination which informs the particularistic perspectives on law and politics. It invites us to cross the bridges between different dimensions (north/south, up/down) in all directions; to turn our gazing into space, its violent takeover and fixation by forced displacement; to take sides in this struggle and enjoy the trip as a new world is created.
