I11) Spinoza offers a new evaluative framework for our understanding oflife, one in which we will have understood nothing, ofart or ofanything, ifwe remain at the level of the human imagination. Like Nietzsche, understanding life in its real conditions will mean overcoming the false consciousness ofhumans. This ncw way of understanding involves a radical revaluation ofvalue, for it is only frorn our point of vicw as human subjects that a relation could be bad, and could decompose our modal integrity From the point of view ofNature every relation is affirmative and expresses an increase, even those that arc, from our perspective, disasters.

In this way, and like Nietzsche, Spinoza provides a way for our human, all to human subjective imagination to overcome itseif, not once and for all, hut in an ongoing affirmarion of life. This process of under standing, in which concepts ofcommon notions emerge through an experimen tation at the limits of what a body can do, constructs a body heyond human perception which lives as the expression ofits real immanent power or essence, as the expression of God. Common notions express modal essences, but more than this the under standing that constructs common notions gives an adequate idea of an essence‘s formal reaiity in the attribute.

This essenrial aspect of the idea constitutes the formal realitv of the existent and objective idea:° liiese two re alities of the idea coexist in any given idea as its reflexive (objective) and expres sive (formal) aspects, these aspects being, I)eleuze savs, “one and the same thing“ (EPS, 139/125). This means consciousness no longer implies a subject as a psychological character or a moral entity consciousness heitig simply the af fect or “trace“ (objective idea) of an essence (formal reality) found in the attrib ute of thought.
