I really like this image, which I found at: http://christianhubert.com/writings/smooth_striated.html. It reminds me of Talmud.
It helps distinguish what Deleuze & Guattari mean by smooth and striated space. Note that in 1000 Plateaus, the point is not to privilege one over the other, but for thought and its concepts to move back and forth between them.
If orthodox Deleuzians force a choice between one or the other, then that’s their business. I know that if push comes to shove, I know which conceptual space I prefer to inhabit.
