Evaluating the political consequences of the timeirnage requires understanding that force is not equivalent to power. Rather, the great lesson of Foucault is that a historical meditation on force enables us to consider the relation between power and resistance as thought from the outside, or the unthought-in-thought of new ways of thinking and new modes of existence. Simulacra, including direct images of time, have no other function. Thought from the outside, this unthought-in-thought, is always the thought of resistance.

N. Rodowick be seen and said in a given historical era. Power is the relation of forces expressed as a diagram or abstract machine. And, finally, there is "the outside," virtuality or an absolute relation that is in fact a nonrelation-the unthought-in-thought. Foucault's description of a rnicrophysics of power has a particular significance here. That singular point where life is the most intense, where its energies are most concentrated, is the struggle with power or the marshaling of forces to evade the snares of power.
