"The self that results is actively defined in terms of its connections and associations, in varying degrees of intimacy and intensity. The emphasis is not on person but persona: as Mez Breeze has suggested, this self is an assembly generated through clusters of distributed identity markers, which does not add up to stable meanings or ground level actualities because it also coalesces in terms of the volume, degree and intensity of its connections. Less a reductive experientiality than a connective extensibility."
