La propuesta parte de la importancia de los biomateriales; al pensar esas relaciones tóxicas (en el buen sentido) como posibilitadoras de entidades extendidas constituyentes que acontecen en la intra-acción, desde la propia relación.

Taking the notion of *Abstract Machine *developed by Deleuze and Guattari (a thousand plateaus), and keeping in mind that abstract machines act in specific agencements, this conception of abstract machine capture processes without form of substance that can be found in concrete assemblages of biology, sociology and philosophy, in a manner that enables cultural theory a large to move away from linguistic representationalism towards “the realm of engineering diagrams” which are shared by different physical assemblages.

So the main reason to put biomaterials in the centre of new materialism is that biomaterials, as new materialism, engenders (or help to engender) immanent thought, biomaterials are generative matter (In De Landa's terms), that is, mattering as simultaneously material and representational. And also, this immanence offers new forms of subjectivity from a materialism that is understood as equally immanent, non-linear and embodied (and embedded) nomadic subjectivity (Braidotti).

One of the most interesting apportations of biomaterials is the possibility of connecting with others, *those non-human others*, not only from inter-action but from intra-action, or in terms of Braidotti the continuum nature-culture.

If we place ourselves in the *continuum nature-culture* proposed by Braidotti as a starting point of the posthuman theory, we are lacing ourselves in the intra-action between technological and the natural, between human-non-human.

In contrast to Fukuyama, the post-antropocentric nomadic subjectivities don't propose a otherness based in being-worth-less-than but they are proposing what I've called *being-with-the-others-in-the-estrangement, *taking the proposal of *becoming-with-the-others* based in a transespecies solidarity.
