Liverpool: Boyd’s Chaosmos 20TEN revisited

Memories of a Plan(e) Maker. Perhaps there are two planes, or two ways of conceptualizing the plane. The plane can be a hidden principle, which makes visible what is seen and audible what is heard, etc., which at every instant causes the given to be given, in this or that state, at this or that moment. But the plane itself is not given.

There are only nuances of this first conception of the plane. -- It exist only in a supplementary dimension to that which gives it rise (n+1).

Then there is an altogether different plane, or an altogether different conception of the plane. Here, there are no longer any forms or developments of forms; nor are there subjects or the formation of subjects …. only haecceities, affects, subjectless indivituations that constitute collective assemblages.”*
