Firstly, when a human becomes an animal, the animal may be imaginary, but the becoming is real (so the object of becoming may be a ‘representation’ but not the act itself); secondly, when a human becomes an animal, the animal necessarily becomes something else (a different type of human, perhaps); and thirdly, in the act of becoming what changes is not the subject, but the world. transformation then is not so much a process as a quality corresponding to multiple identities or to multiple points of view or realities focused on one entity… transformation or becoming is a quality not a process – it is an instantaneous shift of perspectives, a plurivocal multiplicity or rather the entangled non decidable coexistence of two perspectives, each hiding the other in order to appear, the flipping over of sides in a ‘two-sided species’. the real opposition here is that between essences and apparitions (which make different essences communicate). nothing ‘happened’ but everything is changed. no process, no production; just position and condition, that is, relation – to recall the definition of potential energy.
