In other words, what interactants (and analysts) consider to be normal, ideal, ordinary, standard, typical, natural, expected, predictable ways of doing things is the product of the iterable character of practices, texts, signs, gestures, marks, and so on. It is because all these “things” are repeatable, iterable, that some specific iterations come to be considered more ideal, natural, normal, conventional than others.

As active, intentional beings, scientists tentatively construct some new machine. They then adopt a passive role, monitoring the performance of the machine to see whatever capture of material agency it might effect. Symmetrically, this period of human passivity is the period in which material agency actively manifests itself.
