The Hiearplectic Nature of the Psyche
If dual-type theory postulates that a person has two types, one which observes aspects happening around them and another which assesses their common relationships, then for someone to organize thoughts in terms of heiarchial complexity ("this because of this", or "that lead to that") means that they must appraise the aspects around them in terms of aspects they have previously processed. We see thus how a set of independent information aspects can be related to each other into one whole, and similarly, how the objects which possess them are themselves related to each other. I call this heiarchial basis of awareness "heiarplectic", in that it is a heiarchy of complexes. From antiquity we have assembled by means of IM aspect collecting an awareness of the objects around us: we differentiate IM aspects which do not fit into what we know about existing objects into speculations about the existence of objects unknown to us; the same can be said of relations. Through observation and experiment we confirm that these entities exist -- or, in matters of invention, that they can exist. All of our culture and our understanding is built upon this continuous, indefinite process.
