[NetBehaviour] Ontological Banding

Hi Anthony,

This resonates and doesn't for me; it's illuminating but it also seems too
neat, too schematic, too totalizing, too clear in a sense. I always have
difficulties with D&G and their language that way. But the resonance is
clear. Then in my writing (which isn't part of Plateaus in thought), I
have "_a band of remnants_" and I think of them as impossible or broken,
poor assemblages (thinking of the miserable chaos in Haiti for example),
the ecosystem which may disappear (but not yet and perhaps never) around
the Bear River Migratory Bird Refuge which is there where disaster may come
courting. And I/we were wandering this time around Saltair; it was all
clearly worrying -

Best, Alan, and thank you!
