Sometimes there are situations
when there are no perturbations in the environment
no in~fluences, no pro~vocations,
and, therefore, no waves
so then they should be created.
// creativity, inventing new stuff
In this case, initiate the Infiltration Procedure
A few words before the exact explanation…
Step 1: Identify tension knots
The word provocation
/* from Latin provocare ‘challenge’, from pro- ‘forth’ + vocare ‘to call’ */
This is done through im~planting a light im~pulse,
in order to excite the external body~structure
for it to reveal the tension knots
that are used to maintain its original shape.
This initial impulse is made to pro~voke.
The external structure reveals
its strong parts and weak parts
crossroads of meaning,
important junctions and nodes,
// usually linked to fears – fear of in~stability
possibilities for further interactions.
Step 2: Progressive Manipulation of Tension Knots
Two agents meet. One is pulling the other by the hand. The one who is pulled gives in to the movement and lets his body change the form, revealing the points of tension that emerge.
To say something pleasantly-unpleasant /* called “neg” in the “game”: “you look not as tired today as usual” */
Put low frequencies to the maximum
To create a need, to generate a lack
Performed through applying a series of impulses,
destined to shift the center of body~structure
affecting it in a sequential way
using the points of tension identified earlier.
// the structure may reconfigure itself continuously.
Using our body we can understand some principles of intersubjective dynamics in a much more intuitive and direct way.
In this "bodyhacking" video we demonstrate a strategy that can be used to shift a system to a new state. When direct brute force doesn't work (e.g. your partner is stronger than you), it can be useful to apply oscillatory infiltration technique. The first move exposes vulnerabilities (like hacking), the subsequent impulses are used to exploit those vulnerabilities in order to destabilize the system. Can be applied in any context: from fight to politics (that's the kind of strategy Putin used in Ukraine or that Trump is using in the US).
