Wildcat, this concept of
the deterritorialization of the self
is really interesting, thank you for this post.
However, I'm not sure I fully grasp it. At first it sounded like relinquishing individuality, (well, mostly when you mentioned the character in the movie) but after reading the whole thing & your comments, it seems more like what you said in the last -
We do not have a central point of existence
... is it both? The idea reminds me of the observations of the quantum world; that an electron has a wavelength rather than a singular, point-like location at any time, except when observed. Is it something like that, or have I missed the point?

Or is it, rather than relinquishing individuality necessarily, more the idea of letting go of any pre-conceived ideas about what reality actually is?
