I had been dipping in and out of Difference and Repetition for a couple of years, trying to make use of scraps of ideas taken mostly from chapters four and five. The ideas were taking shape but things were a bit of a mess, and the detail wasn't there. In August 2007 I decided I'd take my time and read it start to finish to try and make more sense of it. I take a lot of notes, when I get really stuck I like to draw diagrams in an attempt to map things out, to figure out how the ideas may be related.
This collection of diagrams was drawn between August and December in 2007.
