It is always revolutionary, seeking more connections, but psychoanalysis domesticates and limits it. We are constantly being worked on by the state: Philosophy only arises where there is deterritorialization in such activities.

Love is in the depth of bodies, but also on that incorporeal surface which engenders it.

Desire refers to speed and slowness in between particles, affects, intensities and haecceities [another telegram on page 95]. Everything turns on movements of deterritorialization and reterritorialization, terms invented by Guattari.
