It is an always-more in this reality. Its going-beyond is a moving-in: a movement of immanence. This immanence of the transcendental, this always more to lived reality, may be summed up as: the inclusion of conditions for new emergence in the world that determinately emerges, and reciprocally the inclusion of the determinately emerged in the field conditions for new emergence. Potential rolls in to roll on, in an experiential openness of clutter and invention. That openness, once again, is an autonomy of relation.
Whereas the Sublime leads to rational Ideas, concepts for which there are no adequate intuitions. 24 Kant’s idea of the singular aesthetic Idea, as an intuition for which there can be no concept, is quite close to the notion of singularity in Deleuze. Something absolutely singular breaks away from the hierarchical conceptual relations of genus to species, or of general to particular. 25 What is a singularity in Deleuze? A point in the graph of a function for which there is no slope or derivative; a point of phase transition in matter like the boiling and freezing points of water; a bifurcation point in chaos theory; a mutation in biology, understanding that, as Richard Dawkins says, the effect of a gene can be understood only differentially, in relation to all other alleles at the same location in the genome.
