instantaneously apprehended as such insofar as it approaches or moves
away from zero, each distance being nondecomposable.
Zero is the body

the instantaneous apprehension of a multiplicity in a given region, is not a
representative, a substitute, but an I feel. I feel myself becoming a wolf, one
wolf among others, on the edge of the pack. A cry of anguish, the only one
Freud hears: Help me not become wolf (or the opposite, Help me not fail in
this becoming). It is not a question of representation: don't think for a minute
that it has to do with believing oneself a wolf, representing oneself as a
wolf. The wolf, wolves, are intensities, speeds, temperatures,
nondecom-posable variable distances. A swarming, a wolfing.
ever believe that the anal machine bears no relation to the wolf machine, or
that the two are only linked by an Oedipal apparatus, by the all-too-human
figure of the Father? For in the end the anus also expresses an intensity, in
this case the approach to zero of a distance that cannot be decomposed
without its elements changing in nature.
Does not the child, on the periphery, hold onto the wolves by his
anus? The jaw descends to the anus. Hold onto those wolves by your jaw
and your anus. The jaw is not a wolf jaw, it's not that simple; jaw and wolf
form a multiplicity that is transformed into eye and wolf, anus and wolf,
as a function of other distances, at other speeds, with other multiplicities,
Lines of flight or of deterritorialization,
becoming-wolf, becoming-inhuman, deterritorialized intensities: that is
what multiplicity is. To become wolf or to become hole is to
deterritorialize oneself following distinct but entangled lines. A hole is no
more negative than a wolf. Castration, lack, substitution: a tale told by an
overconscious idiot who has no understanding of multiplicities as
formations of the unconscious. A wolf is a hole, they are both particles of
the unconscious, nothing but particles, productions of particles, particulate
paths, as elements of molecular multiplicities. It is not even sufficient to
say that intense and moving particles pass through holes; a hole is just as
much a particle as what passes through it.
Flying anuses, speeding vaginas, there is no castration.
