Chapter Six begins with a commentary on the meaning of being true to the earth and provides an analysis of the cosmic through the lens of the work of artist, Brian Fridge. The main thrust of the chapter is to develop a Deleuzian model of the people-to-come according to the criteria of the minor, missingness, and the cosmic. The chapter explores Deleuze’s references to the work of Kafka and Klee in order to flesh out these ideas. This leads to a discussion of kinds of minor practice and the necessity for inventiveness for a political future. The chapter develops these ideas with respect to Deleuze’s notion of the nomadic and minoritarian politics, ending with a reflection on establishing an ethos that privileges invention and creativity and prioritizes sensitivity to immanence and affect and cultivating affective encounters.

Keywords:   Deleuze, cosmic, nomadology, invention, minor art, Kafka, affect, immanence
