Originally a concept formulated by Julia Kristeva, a member of the Tel Quel group. Intonations of duplicate or concurrent ideas are the basis of meaning within a given concept, especially when there are no rhetorical resonances.
A matchstick horse in 'Bladerunner' symbolically denotes objectivity of life. There is a noticable degree of personal identity shared with only humans and not androids which is expounded through the use of intertextuality.
