Just do it. We decided before this set of practice to have in Not.All.Ways. seven times seven minutes chunks of work. Between two chucks of work we have 1 minutes break, where we can decide what to change, if anything. Today we decided to do just 7 x 7 minutes without intermission.

The ground tool is mistranslation. Immediately I started to mistranslate the today discovered tool of channel appeared and I used it. Well, the movements coming were building up a channel to mistranslation of today's work. Once consistent and stable enough to sustain the passage (by mistranslating the building of chanel), I entered the channel and continued with mistranslating the today's work.

We have started off with the key idea, concept, method of work, relation to each other: mistranslation. On the first day of practice we have mistranslated previous 3-4 minutes study of each other. What for me was one of the first realizations was the fact that mistranslation makes any power-giving element relative. The relativity of what is "right", "correct", "just", "true" becomes tangible. And the next step is to mistranslate what I have just written. Yes, anything can be and it is mistranslated. How come we are still on same page?
