The constant movement and motion described in these definitions and the relation/communication between signifier and signified can be visually exemplified by watching an action painter in action. Here is a video showing Ed Harris playing Jackson Pollock, the most well-known action painter. The painter's actions = the signifier series; the art on the canvas = the signified; the paint = the paradoxical element that allows the two to communicate. The action painting occurs from 1:20 - 5:15 in the video. The narration, particularly towards the end of this clip, also helps illustrate the signifier/signified comparison.
James Joyce gets his first real look in this chapter. A description of the methods in Ulysses and my comparison of it with Qabalah. Deleuze mentions a letter in Finnegans Wake that serves as a paradoxical element going between the chaos/cosmos series without clarifying where or how. I connect it with a passage on page 66 of Finnegans Wake. This blog by Peter Quadrino linked here explains further.
