Drawing on a disparate set of naturalcultural phenomena from regenerative biology, quantum field theory, and queer and trans theories that include lightning, primordial ooze, frogs, bioelectricity, monstrosity, trans rage, virtual particles, and errant pathways, this article is about the materiality of political imageries and the possibilities for making queer alliance with nature's nonessentialist nature. In particular, it makes an argument for the radically deconstructive, queer, and trans nature of nature, including nature's own engagement with materialist practices of imagining.
