2 Instead of beginning with already existing individualities, it is pre-individual forces and processes that occupy much of the process of the becoming of individuals: [T]he individual is to be understood as having a relative reality, occupying only a certain phase of the whole being in question – a phase that therefore carries the implication of a preceding pre-individual state, and that, even the single act of its appearance all the potentials embedded in the preindividual state. Individuation, moreover, not only brings the individual to light but also the individual-milieu dyad.
There is an individuation of modes of thought, by the same token by which there is an individuation of modes of physical, technical and vital individuation. There is no linear causality between any of them. Each is an effective invention bringing into existence an autonomous level of operational solidarity. None can be adequately explainable without reference to an absolute origin. Each must return in its own way, at every iteration, to the absolute origin: an interval of immanence where taking-effect is flush with a self-formative activity of matter as immanent cause.
By that understanding, the origin of the technical object is purely cognitive, and entirely internal to the human thinking subject. Human thought precognizes a solution, then externalizes it by finding a way to mould matter to the form of its prethought solution. The practical finding of that way would be the technical process: the set of mediating actions shepherding the abstractly thought object into concrete embodiment. Invention would move from the past of a thought, cognitively fully formed, toward the future of an embodiment materially repeating the original thought’s abstract form.
