"Of course it’s no surprise when Felix Guattari talks about love in the same breath as schizophrenia….” it’s like this: someone falls in love and in a universe that once was closed, suddenly everything seems possible. Love and sex are mediums for semiotizing mutation”…Love and sex both cause mutation, just like I think desire isn’t lack, it’s surplus energy — a claustrophobia inside your skin —
No one, and schizophrenics least of all who do it best, can live in this heightened state of reflective receptivity forever. Because this empathy’s involuntary, there’s terror here. Loss of control, a seepage. Becoming someone else or worse: becoming nothing but the vibratory field between two people."

You expose a kind of want in me.
