Conformité

 

« Aujourd’hui, la question la plus contemporaine me semble être comment l’individu peut se défaire des collectifs auxquels il est assimilé de force. »

Édouard Louis

Third mind

«We first took our image and put it into code. A technical code developed by the information theorists. This code was written at the molecular level to save space, when it was found that the image material was not dead matter but exhibited the same life cycle as the virus. This virus released upon the world would infect the entire population and turn into replicas, it was not safe to release the virus until we could be sure that the last groups to go replica would not notice. To this end we invented variety in many forms, variety that is information content in a molecule, which, enfin, is always a permutation of the existing material. Information speeded up, slowed down, permutated, changed at random by radiating the virus material with high-energy rays from cyclotrons, in short we have created an infinity of variety at the information level, sufficient to keep so-called scientists busy forever exploring the ‘richness of nature’. »

Titan

 « There is a greatness in the lives of those who build up religious systems, a greatness in action, in idea and in self-subordination, embodied in instance after instance through centuries of growth. There is a greatness in the rebels who destroy such systems: they are the Titans who storm heaven, armed with passionate sincerity. It may be that the revolt is the mere assertion by youth of its right to its proper brilliance, to that final good of immediate joy. Philosophy may not neglect the multifariousness of the world — the fairies dance, and Christ is nailed to the cross. »

Alliage

 « Qu’est-ce qu’un agencement ? C’est une multiplicité qui comporte beaucoup de termes hétérogènes, et qui établit des liaisons, des relations entre eux […]. Ce qui est important, ce ne sont jamais les filiations, mais les alliances et les alliages ; ce ne sont pas les hérédités, les descendances, mais les contagions, les épidémies.»

Gilles Deleuze
