Summary/Abstract: This is a text-experiment of thinking simultaneously intentional implication and transitive intentionality, with a focus on the affective side of perceptions harmonized in subjectivity. Kinesthetic activity is a permanent immanent transcendence. The technique thrown outside is the ‘blind spot’, the ‘point of the gaze’ behind the ‘point of view’. The exteriority of technique is not objective, we touch or see it when we touch or see the image: we see the invisible and touch the untouchable on the surface – this is the contact with the impossible possibility of the image. In technique, recognition and conceding by anonymous others is an inseparable part of our own kinesthetic organization: a permanent, intrinsic transition within ourselves as something other than ourselves. Our horizons of expectations do not remain unaffected by indexical analogies, by the ‘pinning’ of a related to habitually assimilated context ‘blind spot’ in the midst of ‘doing-work-as-if’. The affective tissue that accompanies the indexical analogy in mimesis, inscribes into the ‘scene’ of space the ‘scene’ of its own habitualized space, and thus a change of optics and perspective becomes possible, decentering becomes possible. This decentering makes the image fluctuating by analogy – “indexical analogies of experience” – with the indexical history.
