(p.118) Chapter 10 Conjunction
Being and Motion

Thomas Nail

Oxford University Press

This chapter argues that folds of motion are connected together through one or more conjunctions. A conjunction is the connection between two or more junctions or intersections. As such, it is also the connection between different qualities and quantities, each with its own affect and number. The conjunction of folds is a “thing.” However, since every fold is both qualitative and quantitative, so is every thing. Therefore, with respect to the connection of the periods of folds, sensate qualities, or affects, we call the conjoined thing an “image.” With respect to the connection of cycles or numerical quantities, we call the conjoined thing an “object.” Image and object are two kinetically distinct but inseparable dimensions of a thing.

Keywords:   fold, quantum field, Carlo Rovelli, Zapatismo, causality, thing, entropy
