Hey everyone, thanks for the great meeting last night! It was nice meeting all of you and sharing your insight into the text.

Afterwards it occured to me that a lot my thought was drawing upon some notions brought up in a text by Peter Wolfendale. It is a bit on the technical side, but I think it does a great job of linking some of Deleuze's ideas with the history of metaphysics, and relating it to some of the more general and standard categories expressed therein. Anyhow, for those who are interested:

I think that in relation to our readings, I understand that when Wolfendale is talking about the problem of Universals, that it is a problem that is reinscriped by D&G as 'the body without organs'. In addition, I think that the point about registration of the effects of the BwO are to some degree illustrated by the final portion of this paper in which Wolfendale illustrates the virtual paths of of universals carving a path on the general and actual substance of Being as a form of topology, once the dimension of time is collapsed.
