Chapter VIII shows how, just as the de-determined world of the thing must be buttressed by the world of the object, the extensive world of (n)either/(n)or must be buttressed by an account of the intensive world of more and less. For Garcia events are facts that are present, time is a result of events indexed by intensity of presence, and life is a result of the intensification of the intensity of the difference between that which an object comprehends and that which comprehends and object.
