To reach, not the point where one says I, but the point where it is no longer of any importance whether one says I. We are no longer ourselves. Each will know his own. 18 It is also worth making the point that Deleuze and Guattari are not being eccentric in taking this view. It is often the case that we find ourselves “in two minds” when it comes to making a definite judgement one way or another. This is only the most acute kind of example, when both minds are conscious, but if most of what goes on in the mind is unconscious, it would follow that many such conflicts are resolved without ever coming to the surface.

To be a chlorophyll- or a photosynthesis-machine, or at least slip his body into such machines as one part among the others. Lenz has projected himself back to a time before the man-nature dichotomy, before all the co-ordinates based on this fundamental dichotomy have been laid down. He does not live nature as nature, but as a process of production. There is no such thing as either man or nature now, only a process that produces the one within the other and couples the machines together. 24 So in this view of the world, the person is not isolated from the surroundings, and cannot be isolated from them.

In order to justify to ourselves this absurdity, we often feign some new and unintelligible principle, that connects the objects together, and prevents their interruption or variation. Thus we feign the continu’d existence of the perceptions of the senses, to remove the interruption; and run into the notion of a soul, and self, and substance, to disguise the variation. But we may farther observe, that where we do not give rise to such a fiction, our propension to confound identity with relation is so great, that we are apt to imagine something unknown and mysterious, connecting the parts, beside their relation; and this I take to be the case with regard to the identity we ascribe to plants and vegetables.
