This chapter argues that if the flows of being are pedetic and capable of bifurcation, then it is also possible for them to flow together in a confluence. A confluence is the intersection or connection of two or more flows that intersect one or more times. In this type of connection, multiple flows move together and intersect with one another without directly folding back over themselves. Being connects because it moves together following a multiplicity of pedetic trajectories. The chapter provides a theory of events and constellations, and gives examples of plant growth and political struggle.

Keywords:   Zapatismo, event, constellation, flow, perspective, stochastic, confluence
