Rather than living as an autonomous individual, to have thout kyar is to live as a relational being embedded in the concerns of the family and community--what anthropologist Marilyn Strathern (1988) terms a 'dividual
', someone who is a composite of the larger social whole.
The importance of these traditional values, practices and social relations are thus highlighted through critical engagements with alleged acts of sorcery as these engagements can help to illuminate deeper tensions between 'modern' developmentalist individualism and 'traditional' dividual
obligations of reciprocity and sharing.

Strathern (1988) concurred with Bateson's argument and introduced the term personhood 'dividual
' (1988:13; Lipsett p.
But this is accomplished through a new level of control associated with the subindividual ("dividual
") parceling-out of dispositions and affect (Deleuze, 1992).
The very essence of the adjective "living" seems to be the property that this sequence of stable states is only to a small degree a repetition and typically features something experienced as progress, as a direction of human history--this holds on the level of the species as well as on the level of the human in dividual

Gilbert's work opens up a rich conceptual space--Raunig's reading of Gilbert constitutes one of the key successes of Dividuum--through which his notion of immanent ontological dividuality flows into discussions of singularity, connectedness, non-universalism, non-essentialism, connection, and conjunction: 'Whereas the concept of individuality tends towards constructing closure, dividual
singularity emphasizes similarity in diverse single things, and thus also the potentiality of connecting, appending, concatenating' (p67).
