Beyond Smooth?

Noted without comment for future exploration:

On the other hand, Delueze is perfectly aware of the existence of several nonmetric geometries and uses a single term ('smooth space') to refer to all of them: "It is the difference between a smooth (vectorial, projective, or topological) space and a striated (metric) space..."

from the footnotes of DeLanda's Intensive Science & Virtual Philosophy.
