[...] The solution is to split living labour into two, and to assume that--alongside living labour as an expenditure of energy that will be partially consumed and crystallised into new machinery in the following cycle--there is a living labour that continues to exist as a means of production throughout the cycle. In other words, this living labour is not destroyed as an intermediate consumption. It is consumed as bodily energy, certainly, but it also develops as a means of production of living as living labour. It builds itself as a skill, as a know-how resistant to its reduction to pure human capital that can be objectified.
