----

First, the non human: electricity.
A tragedy of the commons,
arising only in the doing

Affects create a field of force that does not tend to congeal into subjectivity.
; I equate affect with materiality
Hungry for wildness,
is a two-way-street
The intimacy between being and following:
called “clownish traits”.
; I am always slightly surprised by what I do.
The melting of cause and effect
this includes (among others) efficiency, trajectory, and causality.

But just what kind of activity is this?
A dynamics of spreading cracks,
An irrational love,
that is not the realization of a plan.
