Note on Imaged Acts

Conceiving others as acting in some definite manners, not merely according to what we believe as being their proper and immobile features, our  judgment fails into confusion.

It is the confusing position induced by the false implicit belief that we can comprehend in our static imagination about others their mobile life.

To reduce mobility to sheer sequential order is the easiest way of concealing the confusion.

Such order can be instituted only in the subjective thought; otherwise, if we adopt the objective temporal order, it would be irrelevant for describing acts we do not know in the present.

The subjective origin of sequential order implies a sense of domination over those we speak imaging their actions. Thus, we think they should conform to our moral values in their deeds, so that we often conceive good, bad, courageous actions etc., even if our own practice testifies that the values are attributed when our acts finish or are finished in our thoughts.
