What have play, look, tell, sing, draw and write got in common?

Ingold argues that the human beings do lines by means of every word, gesture and tour that they effect, and that these lines are the responsible about whom we could think jointly to all these seemingly independent actions. The line works as a perfect metaphor of any movement. Nevertheless, this program interrogatesof what happens when these lines are so numerous that they end for turning into knots and the problems that appear have his way of being an individual in this accumulation, overlapping and interwining.
