Multiplicity

Deleuze and Guattari capture my imagination in A Thousand Plateaus pages 32-3,
“Let us return to the story of multiplicity…It was created precisely in order to escape the abstract opposition between the multiple and the one, to escape dialectics, to succeed in conceiving the multiple in the pure state, to cease treating it as a numerical fragment of a lost Unity or Totality…continuous multiplicities…multiplicities of distance, which are closer to the intensive…rhizomatic multiplicities…micromultiplicites…libidinal, unconscious, molecular, intensive multiplicites composed of particles that do not divide without changing in nature, and distances which do not vary without entering another multiplicity and that constantly construct and dismantle themselves in the course of their communications, as they cross over into each other…their quantities are intensities, differences in intensity.”

I was reminded of Deleuze and Guattari's description of Freud and Jung while watching the birds
