to reach

...In the literary machine... struck by the factthat all the parts are produced as asym-metrical sections,

...paths that suddenly come to an end... hermetically sealed boxes... noncommunicating vessels..
watertight compartments .. in which there are gaps
even between things that are
contiguous _ gaps that are affirmations

pieces of a puzzle
belonging not to any
one puzzle

but to many pieces assembled by forcing them
into a certain place where they may or may not
their unmatched edges
slightly bent out of shape

forcibly made to fit



with a number of pieces always left
over ...
left overs.. It is a schizoid work ...

“The two of us wrote AntiOedipus together. Since each of us was several, there was already quite a crowd. Here we have made use of everything that came within range, what was closest as well as farthest away. We have assigned clever pseudonyms to prevent recognition. Why have we kept our own names?

Out of habit, purely out of habit. To make ourselves unrecognizable in turn. To render imperceptible, not ourselves, but what makes us act, feel, and think” (514).

“To reach, not only the point where one no longer says I, but the point where it is no longer of any importance whether one says I.

“..A rhizome ceaselessly establishes connections between semiotic... chains, organizations of power, and circumstances relative to.... the arts, sciences, and social struggles . . . there is no language in itself, nor are there any linguistic universals, only a throng of dialects, patois, slangs, and specialized languages...'

..“.... can analyze language only be decentering it onto other dimensions and other registers. A language is never closed upon itself, except as a function of impotence” (517).

“The orchid deterritorializes by forming an image, a tracing of a wasp; but the wasp , becoming a piece in the orchid’s reproductive apparatus. But it reterritorializes the orchid by transporting its pollen. Wasp and orchid, as heterogeneous elements, form a rhizome . . . Each of these becomings brings about the deterritorireterritorializes on that image. The wasp is nevertheless deterritorializedalization of one term and the reterritorialization of the other; the two becomings interlink and form relays in a circulation of intensities pushing the deterritorialization even further” [519]






“[the book] forms a rhizome with the world, there is an aparallel evolution of the book and the world; the book assures the deterritorialization of the world, but the world effects a reterritorialization of the book, which in turn deterritorializes itself in the world .... (519).
