REturn to Rhizomes and Strata

QUOTES 56 from:

Deleuze, G. and Guattari, F. (1987) A Thousand Plateaus: capitalism and schizophrenia. Translator, Brian Masumi, London: Continuum

The Rhizome connects any point to any other point, and its traits are not necessarily linked to traits of the same nature... The rhizome is reducible neither to the one nor the multiple. (p21)

Multiplicities are rhizomatic...there is no unity to "abort" in the object or return in the "subject". A multiplicity has neither subject nor object, only determinations, magnitudes, and dimensions that cannot increase in number without the multiplicity changing its nature. (p8)

An assemblage is precisely this increase in the dimensions of a multiplicity that necessarily changes its nature as it expands its connections. (p8)
