The Agency-Assimilation-Accretion nexus forms a key part of the CEO’s understanding of how pneuminosity functions. One way to consider the matter would be to use a Heideggerian analogy. In this reading Assimilation becomes something similar to the notion of the ready-to-hand whilst Accretion is more like the present-at-hand. That is to say Assimilation is the subsuming active process that the Narp is embedded in, whilst the Accretion is more a reflective description of the entity that has been formed by the pneuma that has stuck together (accreted).
A Narp is assimilated by a bar that it enters; it is plugged straight into it and unreflectively acts directly in accordance with what it is (buys a drink, takes a seat etc). Of course the Narp might resist the assimilation of the bar either by non-understanding or a determination to not be assimilated (working for another . Another assimilation is in process in these eventualities. The accretion of this particular bar is a pneuminous entity formed by all those different smaller accretions held together under the incoherence of the noetic ‘this bar’ or ‘Gino’s’ which binds the pneuma together.
The agent is the Narp working for the accretions. It seems that no matter what the accretion it always has within it the notion of its self perpetuation as part of it. This pneuminous constant is related to desire in other assimilative/accretive forms. The pneuminous constant (the primordial desire accretion/assimilation) means a given controlling accretion is seeking to perpetuate itself. The accretion as active process is the assimilation. Agency describes the way in which all Narps are agents for accretions: this takes place as a happening through assimilation.
