I’m waiting for it to stop, for it to gather itself into an image, of myself, of my life, of the world. I’m waiting for the movement to stop and reflect itself back to itself – reflection is the condition of action, isn’t it?

Rather than doing away with the notion of critique, Deleuze himself prefers to renew it and use it. He goes back to its Kantian sense of ‘the determination of the genetic elements that condition … production’. Deleuze turns Kant’s meaning against him by construing the conditions in question as those productive of ‘real’ rather than ‘possible’ experience. See Daniel Smith’s translator’s introduction to Deleuze (1997: xxiv). The reconversion of a stratified system of expression into a ‘pre-individual’ field of emergence is an instance of what Deleuze calls ‘counteractualization’ (1990a: 150).
Potential rolls in to roll on, in an experiential openness of clutter and invention. That openness, once again, is an autonomy of relation. What makes a singularity unique – fully and only its own event – is an accident only from the perspective of the already-operating type-casting collector mechanisms to which it gives pause. What is accidental is their momentary failure to recognize. The accident is their negative observation that the event does not immediately provide more grist for their alimentary operations: more substance for their established forms of content.
