• My Current Views: Abstract Summary of Aspects

    Aspectonics has 5 dichotomy sets, though most people only refer to three of them. Personally, I utilize 4 sets. The 5th (the last one on the following list) is one I'm still trying to figure out.

    Aspectonics
    • Object / Field .......Xe/Xi
    • Statics / Dynamics
    • Involved / Abstract ..........SF/NT
    • External / Internal .......... ST/NF
    • Continuous / Discrete .............NS/FT

    ----------------------------

    What kinds of Information do we gather?

    The World is made of:
    • Things, People, Events (TPE) ..........Xe
    • Relationships between TPE .............Xi
      (Relationships requires a minimum of 2 TPE/parts)


    We Know TPE by their:
    • Attributes - qualities/characteristics that are relatively stable, consistent, across time, space, and/or context, which serve to identify a TPE. ('changes' can be an attribute) ..............Statics
    • Actions - what the TPE does, or what it puts into effect ...............Dynamics


    We gather Information about our World:
    • What is this TPE? What is this Thing? What is this Idea? Who is this Person? What is this Event? ........... (Xe Statics)
    • How is this TPE related to that TPE? How are they the same? How are they different? ............ (Xi Statics)
    • What is this TPE doing? What is happening? ................... (Xe Dynamics)
    • How are this TPE's actions related to that TPE's actions? What caused this TPE action? What effect did this TPE action initiate? ................ (Xi Dynamics)


    ---------------------------------

    How do we gather that info?

    We gather Information from:
    • Direct Experience ................ (S, F)
    • our Mental Constructs ............ (N, T)
      (our mental constructs guide our attention to what we consider 'meaningful' vs what we consider 'noise')


    The Information we gather may be:
    • Clearly Defined, Readily Observable ............ (S, T)
    • Hinted at, Suggested, Understood Indirectly ..............(N, F)


    S, T, N, F
    • S - readily observable information that is gathered from direct experience; such as the information we receive from our senses
    • T - clearly defined (may be readily observable) information that is gathered from our mental constructions; such as semantical information, and things we've read about or were told
    • N - indirectly understood information that is gathered from our mental constructions; such as 'knowing something intuitively'
    • F - indirectly understood information that is gathered from direct experience; such as information of 'affect' (the emotional and cognitive impacts the information has on our psyche)

    The 8 IM Elements
    (short form)

    What is this TPE?
    • Se - Information about the TPE is readily observable and based on information that is gathered from our direct experience of it (eg handling and manipulating the TPE itself) (mental constructs of this TPE will be rich with sensory information about it)
    • Ne - Information about the TPE is indirectly understood based on information that is gathered from the mental constructions we have of it (eg intuitively grasp the TPE) (mental constructs of this TPE will be sensory poor, more like a shadow of the TPE)


    How is this TPE related to that TPE?
    • Ti - Information about the relationship between the TPEs is clearly defined, possibly readily observable, and based on information that is gathered from the mental constructions we have of the relationships (eg well defined categorical structures, semantics of relations)
    • Fi - Information about the relationship between the TPEs is indirectly understood based on information that is gathered from our direct experience of the relationships (eg the emotional and cognitive impact the relationship has on our psyche; such as consonance and dissonance)


    What is this TPE doing?
    • Te - Information about the TPE's actions is clearly defined, possibly readily observable, and based on information that is gathered from the mental constructions we have of the TPE's actions (eg systematic models, semantics of actions)
    • Fe - Information about the TPE's actions is indirectly understood based on information that is gathered from our direct experience of the TPE's actions (eg the emotional and cognitive impact the actions have on our psyche...such as from mirror neurons)


    How is this TPE's actions related to that TPE's actions?
    • Si - Information about the relationships between the TPEs' actions are readily observable and based on information that is gathered from our direct experience of the relationships (eg handling and manipulating the TPEs in such a way as to obtain a desired relationship 'flow'/result....such as required for fine motor control)
    • Ni - Information about the relationships between the TPEs' actions are indirectly understood based on information that is gathered from the mental constructions we have of the relationships (eg intuitively grasping the cause-effect of the actions)


    --------------------------

    Yes, I am aware that the above is quite abstract. As soon as I recover from this pounding headache, I'll begin writing on each element, and hopefully show how these abstract definitions show or imply the common descriptions we have of the elements, as well as how or why each element might influence certain element related behaviors.

    Now, lets see how well the written coding works....
