rhizome

*

Deleuze and Guattari use the terms “rhizome” and “rhizomatic” to describe theory and research that allows for multiple, non-hierarchical entry and exit points in data representation and interpretation.

The Rhizome - Cryppix - Medium

Deleuze and Guattari introduce A Thousand Plateaus by outlining the concept of the rhizome (quoted from A Thousand Plateaus):

\1 and 2. Principles of connection and heterogeneity: "…any point of a rhizome can be connected to any other, and must be"; \3. Principle of multiplicity: it is only when the multiple is effectively treated as a substantive, "multiplicity", that it ceases to have any relation to the One; \4. Principle of asignifying rupture: a rhizome may be broken, but it will start up again on one of its old lines, or on new lines; \5 and 6. Principle of cartography and decalcomania: a rhizome is not amenable to any structural or generative model; it is a "map and not a tracing".

They talk about this idea of becoming rather than being. We are better in a constant process of becoming. And that the way to facilitate becoming is through availability of links and connections, access to connections through the rhizome to discover new things.

Write, form a rhizome, increase your territory by deterritorialization, extend the line of flight to the point where it becomes an abstract machine covering the entire plane of consistency.

I have no idea why they chose that image for the post, but I love it. It seems very related to the kind of images you see about rhizomes.
