cultural book is necessarily a tracing:
already a tracing of itself, a tracing of the previous book by the same author,
a tracing of other books however different they may be, an endless tracing
of established concepts and words, a tracing of the world present, past, and
future. Even the anticultural book may still be burdened by too heavy a cultural
load: but it will use it actively, for forgetting instead of remembering,
for underdevelopment instead of progress toward development, in
nomadism rather than sedentarily, to make a map instead of
topic is nomads. What is lacking is a Nomadology, the opposite of a history.


There are rare successes in this also, for example, on the subject of the
Children's Crusades: Marcel Schwob's book multiplies narratives like so
many plateaus with variable numbers of dimensions. Then there is
Andrzejewski's book, Les portes duparadis (The gates of paradise), composed


of a single uninterrupted sentence; .... walking
with pauses, straggling, 
 
                               and forward rushes; the semiotic flow of the
confessions
............................................................................... all this with circles of convergence.

What is important is not whether the flows are "One or
multiple"—we're past that point: there is a collective assemblage of enunciation,
a machinic assemblage of desire, one inside the other and both
plugged into an immense outside that is a multiplicity in any case. A more
recent example is Armand Farrachi's book on the Fourth Crusade, La dislocation,
in which the sentences space themselves out and disperse, or else

jostle together and coexist, and in which the letters, the typography begin
to dance as the crusade grows more delirious.

These are models of
nomadic and rhizomatic writing. Writing weds a war machine and lines of
flight, abandoning the strata, segmentarities, sedentarily, the State
apparatus.


But why is a model still necessary

no mad
                  mad no

Is there a
need for a more profound nomadism than that of the Crusades, a
nomadism of true nomads,

or of those who no longer even move or imitate
anything? 


The nomadism of those who only assemble agencent.
