As we will see, you could additionally learn ‘signs’ or ‘words’ rather than ‘organs. ’ 17 either the ‘body with no organs’ and ‘the judgment of God’ allude to Artaud’s final significant paintings Pour En Finir Avec Le Jugement De Dieu (1947). 18 ‘un corps extreme, intensif. Il est parcouru d’une onde qui hint dans le corps des niveaux ou des seuls d’après les diversifications de son amplitude’ (p. 47). 19 ‘la determine, c’est précisément le corps sans organes (défaire l’organisme au revenue du corps […]) ; le corps sans organes est chair et nerf’ (p. 48). sixteen The therapeutic Practices of Language 123 The athleticism of the physique is of course lengthy during this acrobatics of the flesh’ 20 (FB, 23). The physique is therefore precisely the corporeal extension of the interaction among flesh and bones. yet what if the acrobat falls from one among his gymnastic apparatuses? What if the flesh loses its grip from the bones? Deleuze considers meat as accurately this nation of the physique the place ‘[…] flesh and bone confront one another in the neighborhood instead of being composed structurally. […] In meat, the flesh turns out to descend from the bones, whereas the bones stand up from the flesh’ 21 (FB, 22, emphasis within the original). We needs to although take care to not equate meat with useless flesh, simply because ‘[…] it [meat] keeps all of the sufferings and assumes all of the shades of residing flesh’ 22 (FB, 23). while Deleuze contends that meat mustn't ever be burdened with useless flesh, i feel to the contrary that meat needs to be understood as lifeless flesh, yet now not as dead. the variation among ‘dead’ and ‘lifeless’ is sophisticated, yet as a way to essentially differentiate among physique and flesh, i feel will probably be precious to contemplate meat as lifeless yet no longer dead flesh. the beef that emerges from the war of words among the bones and the flesh – the emergence of the skeleton from which the flesh has dropped off – constitutes what Deleuze calls ‘the universal region of guy and the beast, their region of indiscernibility; it's a “fact”’ 23 (FB, 23). Meat therefore creates this ‘fact’ – the undecidable type of the determine – and therewith constitutes a double turning into. Deleuze asserts that inside of this region of the indiscernible ‘[…] guy turns into animal, yet he doesn't turn into so with out the animal at the same time turning into spirit, the spirit of guy, the actual spirit of guy provided within the reflect as Eumenides or destiny’ 24 (FB, 21). Being faced with meat, we concurrently see, suppose and understand how this meat impacts us via its changing into of the actual spirit of guy or, as Arsalan Memon concisely summarizes in his article ‘Un-Marking and Re-Marking the Border 20 ‘les os sont comme les agrès (carcasse) dont los angeles chair est l’acrobate. L’athlétisme du corps se prolonge naturellement dans cette acrobatie de l. a. chair’ (p. 29). 21 ‘la chair et les os se confrontent localement, au lieu de se composer structuralement. […] Dans los angeles viande, on dirait que l. a. chair descend des os, tandis que les os s’élèvent de los angeles chair’ (p. 29, emphasis within the original). 22 ‘elle [viande] a gardé toutes les souffrances et pris sur soi toutes les couleurs de los angeles chair vive’ (p.
