Elemental Se has been known to exist in various allotropic forms, as red amorphous form, black vitreous form, three ([alpha], [beta], [gamma]) of red crystalline monoclinic forms and grey/black crystalline hexagonal (also referred to as trigonal) form which is also the most stable form, and some more allotropes are discovered recently (8), (9).
I mean the domination that is indissolubly related to the enclosure and domestication ("improvement") or at-homing of that which is "threateningly" errant, i.e., the "commons."
