Bear with me, I don't have the energy to put as much effort into articulating this as it deserves....
The typical model for quadra progression is the following....
Alpha |--> Beta |---> Gamma |--> Delta
Intellectual Revolution |--> Society Paradigm Shift |--> Industrial Revolution |--> Social Stabilization
Democratic |--> Aristocratic |--> Democratic |--> Aristocratic
Each quadra is represented in sequence as a society progresses forward....
Let's call this Model X1
I propose a different model, Model X2
Instead each quadra is represented at all times like layers superimposed on a common reality. Think of it sort of like gears, as events turn in the "beta" layer, this affects the "gamma" and "alpha layer, which in turn effects the "delta" layer. All quadras are equally represented in society and interconnected.
In other Words.....
| - alpha/delta connection
Alpha |---> progresses forward
| - alpha/beta connection
Beta |---> progresses forward
| - beta/gamma connection
Gamma|---> progresses forward
| - gamma/delta connection
Delta |---> progresses forward
| - delta/alpha connection
| - perceptual node (Ne/Si)
| - impact of intellectual achievements on society (Ne, Si)
Democratic Intellectual Evolution of Society
| - intellectual revolution (enlightenment)
| - changes in the role of person in society
| - value node (Ti, Fe)
Aristocratic Paradigm Shifts of Society
| - revolution/military/industrial complex (militant coup, revolt)
| - changes in how work is done before/after revolution
| - perceptual node (Se, Ni)
Democratic Industrial Evolution of Society
| - impact of industry on mainstream society
| - establishment of infrastructure
| - value node (Fi, Te)
Aristocratic Social Stabilization
| - impact of intellectual achievements on society
| - perceptual node (Ne, Si)
The import elements to pay attention to are...
- Nodes - Perceptual or Value
- Quadra - Democratic or Aristocratic
The separation between layers of quadras... information travels between quadras in this form. It is either a shift in perception (being a perceptual function Si,Se,Ni,Ne) or a shift in values. Betas and Gamma for example share a node of perception in Ni and Se. Most of the node involves the exchange of information concerning Ni and Se. Between an industrially oriented democratic quadra, a facet of society, and a more revolutionary oriented aristocratic quadra. A grounded analysis would be the shift from romanticism in history towards modernization, passing through gamma via the industrial revolution. Usually the node is concerned with how industrial infrastructure changes as a result of social revolution occuring in beta. Usually this is a matter of Se (doing things differently) and Ni (major concept shifts). It's largely perceptual, things are looked at differently, but no values are passed between the quadras as their are no common rational functions between betas and gammas.
These are separate spheres or zones for societial evolution. Different subcultures if you will. Like how in society you may have american society imposed atop asain cultures, with vastly different values and evolution. Each quadra in a sense is a subculture undergoing its individual evolution being influenced by the surrounding quadras. Recieving outside input from the two other quadras in terms of values and perception. Alphas for example are constantly modifying their values based on betas (they share Ti/Fe) as Betas modify their values based on alphas. However Alphas perceptions are constantly being modified by their perceptual shifts with delta (they share Si/Ne). Alphas change perceptions considering the impact their quadra has on society and change their values in a similar manner with beta. In a sense Beta and Delta serve as arisocratic structures which moves together. Beta is revolutionary and ambitious, and delta is stable/humane/practical, with gammas serving as an industrial buffer and alphas serving as an intellectual buffer. With values and perceptual changes being passed via the nodes.
