(p.106) Chapter 9 Sensation
Being and Motion

Thomas Nail

Oxford University Press

This chapter puts forward a kinetic theory of sensation. Sensation occurs at the period where a flow folds back over itself and touches itself. It is the ambiguous kinetic structure of the period itself—the double or split affect of periodicity. Sensation is the kinetic difference between sensibility and the sensed. The two are identical in the period of sensation (the sensed) but differentiated in the continuous movement of the flow across its cycle (sensibility). Sensation is the kinetic differentiation internal to existence that makes possible self-affection or self-sensation. In short, sensation is the sense of the sensed as the kinetic identity of the kinetically different.

Keywords:   sensation, affect, sense, sensible, quality, quantity, pores
