—Geometry begins in violence and in the sacred. (The Parasite, Michel Serres)
—Comprehending process involves the analysis of the interweaving of data, form, transition and issue… Rhythms of process produce pulsations, forming facts. Each fully realized fact has an infinitude of relations in the historic world. Thus any one pulsation of actuality consists of the full content of the antecedent universe as it exists in relevance to that pulsation. (Modes of Thought, Whitehead)
—The soul is the clinamen of the body. It is how it falls, and what makes it fall in with other bodies… [T]o speak of a soul at work is to move the center of gravity in contemporary debates about cognitive capitalism. The soul is not simply the capacity for abstraction, for the subsumption of the particular. It is an aesthetic organ as well, the exposure of thought to the contractions and dilations of space, to the quickening and lapsing of time. To say the soul is put to work is to affirm that the social brain or general intellect is not the primary source of value in the production process. Rather the soul as a web of attachments and tastes, attractions and inclinations. The soul is not simply the seat of intellectual operations, but the affective and libidinal forces that weave together a world: attentiveness, the ability to address, care for and appeal to others. (The Soul at Work, Franco “Bifo” Berardi)
