Insights & affiliations

This section of the frame is on ¿1 in-here - the ‘fastest’ regime of time in the sense of, most labile, most rapidly transitory? In common perception, the ‘smallest’ zone - ‘merely personal’? perhaps the most autonomous? Or perhaps the least autonomous, most subject to ‘having your buttons pushed’, instinctual action, reflex action, deep-conditioned action?

A person may be aware of sensations, affects, thoughts, images, impulses, movements of engagement or repulsion, etc within themselves; aware also sometimes of these being responses to similar movements of awareness-and-response in others, either immediately present or in imagination. Additionally a person may be aware of choices available to themself in responding, and of responses that may selectively be mobilised in the moment, to skilfully set intention and mobilise such immanent, intimate forces. This dimension is typically seen as ‘personal’ - something quite distinct from being ‘political’; but foprop refuses this distinction and regards action in this zone as being fundamental to sufficiently radical practice of sufficient trustworthiness on sufficient scale.
