[D-G] a close words to Nz and Jussi

Your writings are very interesting,
I (or that group of meolecules that conspires to call itself a "me") was
drawn to D-G by struggles working in psychiatry and fighting often
insurmountable problems of social alienation. I beacme interested in
Guattari's writings on creating different forms of subjectivity. It seems to
me that my consciousness/sprit/soul is riddled by adherences to a norm of
subjectivity and by a stubborn adherence to habit. Habits condense through
my whole being. Perhaps is it something to do with the ontology of forces
that certain types of forces which conspire to create subjectivity,
neccessarily interact in a repetitive fashion. The result of this is that I
feel much more an "effect" of some transcendent or organising principles
(perhaps the computational quality of the mind??) than open to immanence
(which is what I would like to feel, vibrating at a differnet intensity). I
feel a dangerous warning in my brief encounters with Wittgenstein that
language has evolved for social interaction and has more to do with
communicating human and social investments than obtaining objectivity on
nature and life. He may read much of Deleuze and Guattari as a delusional
attempt to fracture human subjectivity, which has coagulated after 6 billion
years of evolution on planet earth and is thus full of force we have little
hope of understanding. Now the hope of altered forms of subjectivity from
drugs has largely lead to dependence and apathy, where next to go? What are
D-G really trying to do? Escape from the cruelty of existence or even affirm
it? I don't think I understand or feel them. Where are they trying to go?
