Simondon defines the “allagmatic operation”  as one in which energy is considered as a fundamental element in the production of an individual object or body. The individual is no longer a being, but an act that requires energy to exist. In this act, “the becoming of each molecule resounds on the becoming of all others.”  Such a definition can also be applied to various insurrectional movements because a collective action of political emancipation precisely constitutes an act of individuation. The barricade and the tunnel are physicl productions of such an act. Their forms, or rather their formlessness, are the direct result of energy applied to matter.
