Example text

It does not comprehend the mutations of a body because it is of another world, the spiritual world without matter opposing the active mind to the passive body. This God is imbued with an exterior power of selection that determines the essence of a body according to the capacity of the mind to transcend the world of bodily passions, the chaotic and contaminated world of nature. Hence essence is measured through the mental power to disembody from matter that distinguishes the animal from the human body and constrains the reproductive body (the female body) to a lower degree of power determined by its dependency on matter.

No longer do sexual reproduction and the sexed body determine the model of reproduction and communication of energy–information. The biodigital order does not rely on the extraction of surplus value of codes and the suppression of fluid forces, but on the recombination of excessive flows, modulating their microvariations into fluxes – laminar flows. The passage from the biocultural to the biodigital stratum does not mark an arbitrary break between self-contained systems of stratification. This passage is a threshold of connection between one stratum and another entailing the intensification of biophysical and biocultural machines of sex.

The leap from the organic to the biocultural levels of stratification corresponds to the process of overcodification that Deleuze and Guattari explain as a translation on a new level of organization (1987). Overcodification involves a transduction (viral conversion or mutation) of the organic patterns of multicellular communication and reproduction – meiotic sex – on the biocultural level, spreading the biophysical entanglement between sex, reproduction and death (meiotic sex) across social and economic spheres.
