39 A REPETITION OF DIFFERENCE There is no background, and the dark precursor does not supply a background. How then does the dark precursor work? There is no doubt that there is an identity belonging to the precursor, and a resemblance between the series that it causes to communi­ cate. This "there is:' however, remains perfectly indeterminate. Are identity and difference here the preconditions of the functioning of the dark precursor, or are they, on the contrary, its effects? (DR 119). Of course Deleuze argues for the latter, which means that the dark precursor projects "upon itself the illusion of fictive identity; and upon the series which it relates the illusion of a retrospective resemblance" (DR 119).

These are the actualizing, differenciating agencies" (DR 214) . The world is an embryo, an egg, and this generalized dynamism underlies the categorization of nature into genus and species. Dynamic pro­ cesses dramatize or perform an Idea. The virtual differentiated Ideas are determinate in themselves, but they have to be performed, put into practice. The spatial and temporal dynamisms underlie and pro­ duce the species and parts that we observe and appreciate. The spatio­ temporal dynamisms resemble what Kant calls schemata in the Cri­ tique of Pure Reason insofar as they supply "a rule for determination of time and of construction for space" (DR 218).

Problems are Ideas them­ selves" (DR 162). Thinking is learning to inhabit these problems and experience them as Ideas rather than simple propositions to be solved or resolved. For Plato, learning is the passage or transition from nonknowledge to knowledge, but it cannot be simply identified with either knowledge or nonknowledge. Deleuze offers a profound rereading of Plato in Difference and Repetition. He claims that Plato "introduces difference, apprenticeship and heterogeneity into thought only in order to subject them again to the mythical form of resem­ blance and identity" (DR 166).
