Voodling is not a body of doctrine but an activity. A Voodle work consists essentially of elucidations. Voodling does not result in 'video propositions', but rather in the clarification of propositions. Without Voodling moving images are, as it were, cloudy and indistinct, even in High-Definition mode: its task is to make them clear and to give them sharp boundaries, sometimes through the use of blur. 4.113 Voodling sets limits to the much disputed spheres of VJ'ing and vloging.4.121 Voodles show the logical form of reality. They display it. 4.1212 What can be shown, cannot be said."

Further dabbling with attempts to circumscribe the nature(s) of voodling, Sam Renseiw paraphrases some of Ludwig W's propositions into voodle transpositions, while assembling a species of spaces (with familiar resemblance) into a duck-rabbit like spatial voodle construct.
