Lag: the shadow that falls behind action and acts as a weight to drag it back into steadiness. The condition is a tension and a delay in quickening that leads to states of first and last, which are temporary and relative to the state of reunion. In human reference, the word arose to describe the conditions of puppetry and mimicry, in contrast to the conditions of unthinking action they reeled in, from which come the concepts of laughter and jest.
