Ceaseless is the key word you are looking for.The
ceaselessness of affect is a force of being attributable to
a constant varaition of forces acting on the forces.It
follows that the power, of acting, is the power coming from
those forces which are experienced as affect. The force of
existing/existence results from that, in such a way that
being varies. Concomittantly, so does the force of existing
as such. The intelligibilty then speaks for itself,
automatically, so to speak.
I hopes this helps you with the ascertaining of a sort of
defintion u were looking for. There is a certain shortcut
in mixing Spinoza with Foucault easily however, in my
