Example text

This can be clearly seen in physics, where proper names designate such effects within fields of potentials: the Joule effect, the Seebeck effect, the Kelvin effect. History is like physics: a Joan of Arc effect, a Heliogabalus effect – all the names of history, and not the name of the father. (Deleuze and Guattari 1977: 86) Stories and Time The hallucination of the names of history may suggest a positive use of history, but the question remains: how can one write about history, whether as a historiographer or a novelist, and engage in fabulation, if indeed, fabulation is one with becoming, and if becoming is opposed to Chronos?

Aion corresponds to what the composer Pierre Boulez calls ‘nonpulsed time’, as opposed to ‘pulsed time’. In Boulez’s compositions, sections of regularly pulsed music in standard meters alternate with sections in which the performers are free to execute their parts as they see fit, the conductor providing no regular pulse but simply marking the onset of the section by starting a stopwatch and then signalling the end when the allotted 17, 19 or 23 seconds have elapsed. Yet unlike Boulez’s ‘nonpulsed time’, Aion lacks even a predictable forward thrust.

When we actively remember something, we leap from the present into a different realm, search within the field of the past for the memory we seek, and then find an image within the present that allows us to represent that past to ourselves. In dreams, we start to see something of the qualitative difference of memories, as we move freely from image to image, with experiences ranging in intensity and immediacy without regard to their nearness or distance in time from our present situation. Deleuze adds to the Bergsonian analysis that in Proustian involuntary memory, as when Marcel tastes a madeleine dipped in a lime-tea infusion and recalls the town of Combray, we discern the pure past in its full being, as an essence.
