Re: <nettime> Deleuze, and (Which) Politics?

Very interesting essay.  What does it mean that the "people are  missing"?  
Deleuze was, apparently, citing Carmelo Bene's remarks.  Where did  Bene's 
comments come from?

Is this just a comment about political cinema?  Or, might is literally  
mean that you and me and everyone else don't exist in some crucial sense?   
That the humans have disappeared?
What might have caused this to happen?  And is the use of formal  causality 
permitted in the answer?
If those who buy the Deleuze "brand" think they are marching with him  
toward making something new to replace the humans, then how are we to separate  
this activity from Eugenics or Transhumanism or pursuit of the  Singularity?
Indeed, what are the politics of striving to replace the human race with  
something "better"?
