105 To map the images and signs of this regime is thus to understand the way forces arrange themselves in our world, and this leads us into the second sense in which cinema 26 GREGORY FLAXMAN functions historically. For Deleuze, the cinema gradually discovers ways to proliferate disjunctions between the visible and the articulable, thereby catalyzing a kind of thought that diverges from strict determination. In Foucault (1986), Deleuze writes that it is not surprising that the most complete examples of the disjunction between seeing and speaking are to be found in the cinema.

The schema regulates the images by deflecting them into certain habitual paths; as Schwab explains, perception-images necessitate a brief moment of thought, an affectionimage, which in turn feeds into an action-image. In this way we can see how, even before Deleuze ever considered the cinema, he grasped the sensory-motor schema as a "story-telling function,"86 for it requires images of situations that naturally give rise to action and so to new situations, a narrative trajectory we learn to follow, in cinema and in life, as the norm.

To put it another way, the story is based on irrational linkages, a practice of false continuity in which images coagulate and disperse, in which we experience the world as a field of forces. In this respect, each of these three successive modes of modern cinema underscores a critical point at which the organic (or kinetic) regime gives way to the crystalline (or chronic) regime: 1.
