nomadic distribution

Aion is the past-future, which in an infinite subdivision of the abstract moment endlessly decomposes itself in both directions at once and forever sidesteps the present. For no present can be fixed in a Universe which is taken to be the system of all systems, or the abnormal set. To the oriented line of the present, which “regularizes” in an individual system each singular point which it takes in, the line of Aion is opposed. This line leaps from one pre-individual singularity to another and recovers them all, each one of them within the others. It recovers all the systems as it follows the figures of the nomadic distribution wherein each event is already past and yet in the future, at once more and less, always the day before and the day after, inside the subdivision which makes them communicate with one another.
