Boulder rush IV: "A loose boulder"

Contact and contiguity are themselves an active and continuous line of escape. [...] On the one hand, there is a rapid and joyous sliding movement or deterritorialization that makes everything adjacent even at the moment when the dreamer seems to have fallen into an abyss ("The paths there were very winding, ingeniously made and unpractical, but he glided along one of them as if on a rushing stream with unshaken poise and balance"). On the other hand, there are these pathways, these equally rapid segments that bring about deadly reterritorializations of the dreamer [...]. Undoubtedly, this [...] sheds some light in that deadly reterritorialization of K in a hard segment, "a loose boulder".

Deleuze & Guattari, Kafka: Toward a Minor Literature, p. 61.
