All truth-finding might be decreased, he argues, to some simple forms, that have continually been to be had, yet which were mixed in various proportions.

What distinguishes subjects is that although they all contain the same virtual world, they don’t express the same clear and distinct or actualized portion of it. These are infinitely tiny perceptions that Deleuze characterizes as “unconscious perceptions” (FLB 89), or as the “differentials of consciousness” (FLB 93). Each monad expresses every one of them, but only obscurely or confusedly, like a clamor. Leibniz therefore distinguishes conscious perception as apperception from minute perception, which is not given in consciousness.
Deleuze states that “actualization or differenciation is always a genuine creation,” and that to be actualized is “to create divergent lines” (212). The expanded power series of a meromorphic function is actualized in the composite function insofar as it converges with, or creates, the divergent lines of the composite function. Differenciation, therefore, creates an essential singularity, whose divergent lines actualize the specific qualitative nature of the poles of the group of discontinuous local functions, represented by a potential function, in the form of a composite function.
According to Weierstrass, for any continuous analytic function on a given interval, or domain, there exists a power series expansion which uniformly converges to this function on the given domain. A power series expansion that is convergent in such a circle represents a function that is analytic at each point in the circle. The new series is continuous with the first if the values of the function coincide in the common part of the two circles. This method of “analytic continuity” allows the gradual construction of a whole domain over which the generated function is continuous.
