Here the logie of the outside takes a peculiar yet fundarnental turn. " Relations of forces are mobile and diffuse. They express an absolute or infinite movernent. These movements are not external to the stratifications of audiovisual space; they are the outside, more distant than any exteriority that could be represented, deeper than any interiority that could be thought. Forces are a continuous becoming, a becoming of forces or the virtual that doubles history as the actual succession of events.

36 23 Fredric jameson But we also need to register Deleuze's dissent from such formulas, as in Foucault (Paris, 19 86 ): The essential feature of this notion lies in the fact that the construction of a substantive like "multiple" ceases to be a predicate in opposition to the one, or attributable to a subject identifiable as One. Multiplicity must be utterly indifferent to the traditional problems of the many and the one .... There is no one and no multiple or many .... There are only the rare multiplicities, with their singular points, their empty places for whoever cornes briefly to function as a subject within them .

This force opens a line of variation in any image, sign, idea, or concept that atternpts to express it. " 2 The outside rnust not be confused with exteriority. Otherwise, the powers unleashed by the irrational interval and the series of time cannot be understood. Exteriority always concerns form and relations between forms. It is spatial and territorial. Two forms identical to thernselves but diffèrent trom each other are external to each other. However, the outside fundamentally concerns force and relations of forces.
