- "We do not allow norms to simply govern the action to be taken or the process to be followed, that is, the rule to be applied."
- "We say: perform the university, emulate it, occupy it, teach it with an ‘eye [."
- "The university 2.0, unlike our pluriversity, lacks contest and context."
- ".] that sees possibility ever."
- "By emulation, we mean literal replication, designed to induce a certain reflexivity (from the Latin reflexivus, ‘re-turning’) that is actually a re-purposing."
- "So, we aim to give this land sides, to acknowledge that it is whenua tautohetohe (‘contested land’)."
- "Is it innovative, for instance, to follow imperatives to be innovative?"
- "The university can hardly be a place where this, but not anything else, escapes pause, reflection and deliberation."
- "We reject this kind of ‘end-stopped’ thinking, which reduces thinking to mere calculation in advance and participation to the managed consensus of ‘consultation,’ in which even the strongest objections are considered merely ‘positive feedback’ and evidence of ‘robust’ processes."
- "It is to investigate the human capacity to make and break rules."
