Within the Hitchhiker's consultant to the Galaxy, writer Douglas Adams famously proposed that the reply to the query "What is the that means of existence? " was once the quantity forty two. Why that quantity? through the years, many theories were recommend, yet Adams steadfastly refused to explain. It has taken a devoted fan and investigator, Peter Gill, ten years to set up simply why forty two is the reply.

This typological classification ofabstract machines enables DG to underscore the complexity of the 'Mechanosphere', because an these machines 'are as intertwined as their operations are convergent' (514). Thus the three main activities of the world are creation, stratification, and capture, or, in otherwords, life (creation) and 'that which life sets against itself to limit itself' (stratification and capture) . ACTUAL: an ontological term for Deleuze, 'actual' is replaced in ATPby its correlate, 'stratified'.
Strata are stable, returning quickly from perturbation to a set point. This is the Deleuzoguattarian sense of 'organism', which can be related to the received notions of the autopoietic school of Maturana and Varela. ) 66 In terms of political physiology, stratified 'organisms' force their organs to serve the system of which they are parts, and here we find the received notion of functionalism. In contrast to strata, consistencies have changing virtual realms: they amplify diversity by virtue of positive feedback loops (but successful consistencies are always dampened by negative feedback loops to avoid a suicidaI explosion - the fascist war machine lacks precisely this 'instinct for self-preservation').
However, by the same token, even though Deleuze and Guattari argue indefatigably against the 'transcendental illusion' ofhylomorphism, there is no a priori morality here in favor of flow, as the naïve postmodernist reading of Deleuze and Guattari would have it. 63 Time scale is aIl important for understanding emergence. In one of his last works, Francisco Varela shows that neuronal resonant cell assemblies cohere and then fall apart on a time scale measured in milliseconds (Varela 1999). But during their period of resonance they can trigger simple motor responses, which can trigger further real effects when picked up by the appropriate assemblage.
