Body without Organs


Is it really so sad and dangerous to be fed up with seeing with your eyes, breathing with your lungs, swallowing with your mouth, talking with your tongue, thinking with your brain, having an anus and larynx, head and legs? Why not walk on your head, sing with your sinuses, see through your skin, breathe with your belly: the simple Thing, the Entity, the full Body, the stationary Voyage, Anorexia, cutaneous Vision, Yoga, Krishna, Love, Experimentation. Where psychoanalysis says, Stop, find your self again, we should say instead, Let's go further still, we haven't found our BwO yet, we haven't sufficiently dismantled our self. Deleuze and Guattari

4. [W]hen breath is all out (up) and stopped of itself, or all in (down) and stoppedin such universal pause, one's small self vanishes 12. Closing the seven openings of the head with your hands, a space between your eyes becomes all-inclusive. 14. Bathe in the centre of sound, as in the continuous sound of a waterfall. Or, by putting fingers in ears, hear the sound of sounds Centering (Tantric yoga instructions)
