I've been considering how the holographic thought process works, starting with the case of limiting (as in the mind of an LII). My approach to thought is a relatively systematic (but multi-tasked, so it's never clear quite where I'm at) process of thinking through all the various options, and eliminating options until I come to a conclusion. I think that the macro level of holographic supervision and the micro level of a single holographic's thought process are alike in this respect. To be more clear what I mean: I imagine holographic types, and the holographic supervision ring as a whole, as constantly going off on tangents while fully intending to come back to the original problem eventually, armed with the knowledge gained from the tangent. I imagine the supervision steps involving LII as follows:
-SLE, in dealing with real-life problems, finds that these problems need to be analyzed logically in detail. He may attempt to use his creative problem, or make use of supervision by formulating the problem in a form and presenting it to an LII.
-The LII has no idea what the original problem was that made this problem necessary (and thus does not have to deal with ), but sets to work breaking down the problem logically and coming to a conclusion. In exploring the problem, he may come across a difficult question about the internal nature of things; again, he may attempt to solve this himself, or pass it on to his supervisee in an form (with no hint as to what the original logical problem was).
Once a supervisee has worked out the problem, he passes the solution back to his supervisor, who checks it and uses it in his own thoughts if it passes. Thus, for supervision to work among Holographic types, the supervisor must have the right to delegate problems to his supervisee, and the right to tell his supervisee that he's wrong (in which case the supervisee must rework the problem). The branching-out nature of holographic thought means that the problem presented to the supervisee will usually be only a small part of the problem that the supervisor is working on; however, this does not mean that the supervisor will do more work on the whole problem than his supervisee will do on any given part. The holographic thought process is a very thorough thought process, in which no problem is so small as to not be worth the effort to solve it. (I suspect that this is related to Negativism.)
Because holographic supervision involves passing on problems that do not need to be dealt with in the context they came from, holographic types are always willing to take on a problem that they're suited for without needing to know why the problem has to be solved.
The cycle of elements in the holographic ring goes something like this:
observes the real-life problem to be dealt with
logically checks every aspect of the situation
lays out every possibility in each aspect of the situation that could not finalize a conclusion about
finds a personal interpretation of possibilities that could not get a handle on
details physical thing in question where did not know enough to form an interpretation
identifies the logical workings of the thing in question where could not observe them directly
identifies the various possibilities where could not finalize a conclusion
(Although I started this with , at this point it's clear how every element can continue where the previous one fell short, ad infinitum.)
