What Deleuze means by ‘synthesis’ is revealed in his analysis of becoming and its implications for an understanding of time. One of the more troubling aspects of the concept of becoming is that it plays havoc with our common-sense notions of time. We usually distinguish past and future by their relationship to the present, but if the present moment is a moment of becoming, then in a strict sense that present moment is also the past-becoming-present and the present-becomingfuture. Hence, ‘the present must coexist with itself as past and yet to come’ (NP 48, 54).
The will to power is plastic, inseparable from each case in which it is determined; just as the eternal return is being, but being which is affirmed of becoming, the will to power is unitary, but unity which is affirmed of multiplicity’ (NP 85–6, 97). Deleuze argues that the will to power has qualities which must be distinguished from the qualities of force: ‘active and reactive designate the original qualities of force but affirmative and negative designate the primordial qualities of the will to power’ (NP 53–4, 60–1).
Deleuze argues that the will to power has qualities which must be distinguished from the qualities of force: ‘active and reactive designate the original qualities of force but affirmative and negative designate the primordial qualities of the will to power’ (NP 53–4, 60–1). Although a basic affinity exists between active forces and the affirmative will to power, and between reactive forces and the negative will to power, the qualities of force and those of the will to power are quite distinct. Forces are mere instruments of the will to power, and they need the will to power ‘as something which goes beyond them but is necessary for them to achieve their own ends’ (NP 54, 61).
