"Singularities are central actors in that process of individuation. They are not something outside of things– they are strictly immanent in things –but neither are they the qualities (such as color, texture, taste, etc) or shape of things. Rather, they are that within a thing that will generate qualities and shape when a thing enters into a particular field of forces.
As the wood chopper brings her axe down upon the wood, it is not simply the will of the woman that gives form to the firewood. Rather, the singularities that populate the wood contribute just as much to the shape of the firewood as the axe and the action of the woman. What we have here is a play of forces between the woman, the axe, and the wood that precipitate the firewood."
