I too appreciate the flow of your words.  But a couple of questions:
can a philosopher be an artist?(creation of concepts etc.) What do you
mean "unhook from life"?  If life is not the source then what?  There
is a curious paragraph in Mille Plateaux that suggests that the "way"
to the void, the plane, is still in Being and so not the ultimate. 
What way is outside of Being, outside of life?  Life=Being?  And
finally, what is the difference between my thinking desire and desire
thinking me?  That is, from the limitations of my ever striated view
of things, isn't desire a line of death?  What form can desire take,
such that I (self) is taken along with it?  In other words, if desire
can be freedom (Spinoza's conatus), how do we avoid desire for
something - limiting desire?
