This chapter argues that the liberalisation of alchemy in the 17th century opened up a free road for the inauguration of a multiplicative system of production through the dismantling of structures and compositions. The in-between, liminal (non)number zero, which denies and refutes the operations with natural numbers, became legitimised in mathematics, while similarly in the natural sciences, through Newton and Boyle and their ideas of vacuum and gravitation, the existence of an empty, merely quantitative force became accepted as foundational. Philosophy and eventually the social and political sciences mimetically followed the natural sciences, propagating the automatisms of a feeling machine as a solution to the liminal crisis of their times. All these concepts, however, were originally developed inside alchemy, which successfully and effectively performed the forced dissection and reunification of concrete entities, which result in the chasing away of the soul from its rendered composition and its eventual redirection into a different body, in contrast to the linear transformation process which is the way in which the matrix works.
