As with the tacit cogito, the auto-affection of time as ultimate subjectivity is not a static self-identity but involves a dynamic opening toward alterity.
For Merleau-Ponty, this unified Merleau-Ponty of your self is the paradigm or model you Merleau-Ponty use to understand your nature. For Merleau-Ponty it is a dynamic form responsible for actively structuring our conscious ideas and physical behavior. Leaves, photocollage, acrylic, gouache, resin on wood panel. Merleau-Ponty argues that such accounts rely on gratuitous hypotheses lacking experimental justification and cannot effectively explain brain function or learning.
In Merleau-Ponty's discussion ofhe discusses. While each thing has its individual style, the world is the ultimate horizon or background style against which any particular thing can appear. The last chapter of The Structure of Behavior clarifies this revised understanding of Merleau-Ponty in dialogue with the classical problem of the relation between the soul and the body in order to account for the relative truths of both transcendental philosophy and naturalism.1993, The Merleau-Ponty Aesthetics Reader, Evanston: Northwestern University Press.
It is governed Merleau-Ponty neither by causality, nor by intentionality. The body stands between this fundamental distinction between subject and object, ambiguously existing as both. This idealization of space has its necessity, yet, once elevated to a metaphysical status by contemporary science, Merleau-Ponty culminates in an understanding of being as purely positive and absolutely determinate.
Ultimately we find a relation of reversibility within language like that holding within sensibility: just as, in order to see, my body must be part of the visible and capable of being seen, so, by speaking, I make myself one who can be spoken to allocutary and one who can be spoken about delocutary.

Our lived and objective body allows us to perceive the world as one entity; Merleau-Ponty claims that the unity of experienced objects is not accomplished through the application of mental rules and categories, but through pre-conscious power of bodily synthesis.
