thank you for answer unsent. here is the night and i
am filled with sleeping pills so i can not use my
mind.
it seems very wise dayly. i am taking the neuroleptics
now, since a month. i am more lucid. but not there. it
is like having a new brain implant. my intelligence is
twice the size it is at this moment of this night,
when i can survey my life and the composites in its
limbs and parts.

to day i have thought about the plane of composition
deleuze says he saw in artists and novelists of his
series of admired ones. i am wondering why the use of
"plane" of composition, because its visually when i
refer to the object, as something like the medium of
preparation, its an industry, the construction of an
artificial technology. the question is, while deleuze
seemed to have sent some parts of the "plane" ; up,
floating, elaborating, to float above other
mathematas,  i am thinking about the poor man, i am
trying to recapture the gilles deleuze the man. the
question resurfaces when you think about the
(re)construction in archipelagos of galapagos, as seen
in CC. my ideas are precious and i do not whant alert
those here, while , but in any case the death line, at
some point the critique i found to deleuze was written
on the next page, as if deleuze was conscious of these
critiques and was working with them in his mind. why
to write by the death line then? why to copy the
attacks of "reasons". its unproductive, death
drivous.''''it 

do you understand something like that
is it human to be unsure? this list is strange. i am a
strange person also. you have changed here also since
last year. tomorrow is my birthday.

sorry i will read deeper as i said i am tired.
tomorrow or so this letter which is now yours.
