For Deleuze and Guattari, this initial tracing exercise provides the basis for the second ‘transformative’ component intended to ‘show how one abstract regime can be translated, transformed into another, and especially how it can be created from other regimes’ (Deleuze and Guattari, 2004a: 161). In order to make this transformation, Deleuze and Guattari suggest that one should form a map of (BRE) concepts and ideas and identify ‘possibilities for translat(ing) and creat(ing)’ them into new lines of enquiry (into new non-essentialist tools).
