Example text

Whitehead, Process and Reality, 7. Spinoza’s deus sive natura holds God and Nature in inclusive disjunction. Deleuze develops a similar notion of a “nature- culture continuum,” but as a resolutely atheological proposition. 11. For a similar use of the concept of (natured) nature, in the specific context of governmental powers, see Foucault, The Birth of Biopolitics, 16: “Nature is something that runs under, through, and in the exercise of governmentality. It is, if you like, its indispensable hypodermis.

This mutual inverse extension of operations betokened the construction of a civilian-military continuum covering the full spectrum of indiscriminate threat. The operational continuum was laced with potential openings for outright military intervention at any point. The openings came in the form of arbitrarily invokable “exceptions” to such civil guarantees as habeas corpus and the right to privacy. The aim was to make war response as ubiquitously irruptible as the indiscriminate threats it seeks to counter.

There is, however, but one process. That one process, which is naturing nature, holds the multiplicity of reemergent tendencies in inclusive disjunction. In view of this immanent multiplicity, it is admissible to speak of “a” process when referring to the life cycle of one such tendency, bearing in mind that no one tendency ever expresses in isolation. An incursion of processually formative force always brings more than one tendency into incipient expression. It is this coming-together that must eventfully play itself out.
