Postphenomenology focuses on technological objects and successfully describes how they co-constitute both our selves and our lifeworld. However, as we focus on giving material objects agency, what actually happens within the human subject? I develop a temporal relation that captures how the human is transformed by technology through two aspects: the past (through the already established notion of sedimentation) and the future (through Asle Kiran's notion of potentiality). Through this new intra-subjective relation we can better understand the broader mediating and constituting effects of technologies that enter into our lifeworld.
