Unfortunately, 1000 Plateau's for some, fills the position of Analyst (gone
rogue). The reader risks either a) racing to fill the position of analysand
and/or b) having their narcissism (which is often the case with the...
intellectually grandiose) split open like a pandora's box under the wedge of
the Unconscious that the book can present. One begins to love how well they
understand. But the original scholarship was more than just an epiphany
despite the wording of the authors. D&G are not Martin Luther.

It's funny, Deleuze writing on his own while powerfully lucid can be
painfully dry. D&G writing together while powerfully lucid is also painfully

Create, yes, but make sure one uses a voice of one's own, in the open, in
the daylight, in a molar language. Appealing to the Unconscious is not a
persuasive argumentative ploy, for many. It is a stepping off the field of
play, an act of religion, neither artistic nor philosophical.
