Through an ecological pendulum (measured in the difficulty of transactions as auto regulation* and the difficulty of my body as feeling through movement) that does not reject binaries and polarizations but instead oscillates between them, abstraction becomes possible as a feeling of a constantly moving idea. Through this, I can finally feel between my body and algorithm, not as opposites or as instrumental players, but rather as a liminal relationship that never quite becomes ‘yes or no,’ ‘good or bad.’ Instead, I feel a constant fluctuation between them.

How can my body move to try to understand the complexity of a fluctuating value and technological system before, during, and after it becomes abstracted?

What other ways can I feel abstraction that includes my intuition in the form of improvisation and presence?

Can I move differently in the blockchain?

I repeat, how can my moving body feel this energy differently?

Can the blockchain, in its particularities, open up new spaces for bodies to experience the calculation and execution of abstraction by an algorithm?
