Harman

Assemblages are transfactual, or to coin a new term, they are transactual. They are never fully actualized. In fact, they cannot even be partly actualized, given DeLanda’s view that even a motionless object still fluctuates faintly around an attractor rather than sitting directly on top of it.

[Graham Harman, The Assemblage of Society in Towards Speculative Realism, p 183]

[…] along with being an assemblage, an entity is also an emergence. […] For an entity emerges; it is something more than all clusters and aggregates, and is no bundle of properties glued together through the habit of customary conjunction.

[Graham Harman, The Assemblage of Society in Towards Speculative Realism, p 184-5]
