Todd May in his book on Deleuze with particular style uses punctuation to vivid effect: a small arrest and then the flow resumes. Pages apart one instance of the form calls out to its other incarnations. Take for example:

Machines do not fill lacks; they connect, and through connecting create.

And pages and pages later:

Cities are not matters of function; they are matters of connection.

Rereading very carefully, one comes to understand that functions and connections are not opposed to each other. Matters of function and matters of connection are. And so the imagination is pushed to entertain connection as gratuitous function. Characterizing matters as of use-value type and of non-exchange value type comes close to connecting functions and connections.

And so for day 119
