What about the human capacity to imagine and thus the ability to rise above
and overcome the Oedipal childishness?
Is it not the human ability to imagine that defines us as human. That we
can imagine ourselves not ourselves and not physical but purely mind and
then to manipulate reality to match our dreams via creation and language, is
what makes us distinctly human. Mind you I have not plodded through any
Deleuze at all. Perhaps there is a Rhizome reference that is apt here.
Do I have to actually read this stuff?
