4 Natural Elements?
Purely for speculative fun (alpha bullshit):
8 information aspects, 2 for each natural element.
Fire = Se & __Te?
Earth = Ti & __Ni?
Wind = Ne $ __Fe?
Water = Fi & __Si?
Dante Alighieri describes yielding to lust, to passion, as a torrent of glued-together bodies in a portion of Hell, blowing about for eternity.
Water takes up the volume of that which contains it. Water adjusts, like Si. Much like Fi, a "body of water," how large it is, doesn't express how "deep" or how "intense" it is. "Still waters run deep"
Se seemed obvious, Se pisses itself off, it feeds into its energy, it devours.
Ti is stable and static like the crystalline structure of Earth's minerals. Ni is "the one true path" among all the possible, virtual ones. A sense of stability (albeit Ni is dynamic...crystal balls are used to divine the future...methane fumes also work).

Heaven and Hell
Typically, Intuition is associated with Fire, Sensation with Earth, Thinking with Air, and Feeling with Water.
What's the purpose of SEI?
I would say:
Fire = Feeling
Earth = sensing
Air = thinking
A true sense-perception certainly exists, but it always looks as though objects were not so much forcing their way into the subject in their own right as that the subject were seeing things quite differently, or saw quite other things than the rest of mankind. As a matter of fact, the subject perceives the same things as everybody else, only, he never stops at the purely objective effect, but concerns himself with the subjective perception released by the objective stimulus.
(Jung on Si)
All of the elements can correlate to any information element depending on the exact scenario and feature that you are focusing on.
Alpha - Air
Beta - Fire
Gamma - Water
Delta - Earth

How did you arrive at those conclusions? Which of the 8 information aspects correlates specifically with which of the 4 natural elements?
@mclane kinda had the idea, I like the positive/negative additions to each of the 8, making 16, but how would they fall
into the natural 4?
@number9large, if the elements were broken into quadrants, switching the gamma/delta might be better, gammas are more stable, "tough love" is what they show, but water adjusts and conforms (Si), similar to how deltas adapt.
@Chakram, the "the exact scenario" would be hypothetical, and the "feature that you are focusing on" would be the intrinsic qualities of each information aspect, considering the intrinsic qualities of the 4 natural elements, and irrespective of the concept of relativity that Einstein taught us over 100 years ago
@Heretic007, duly noted.
If you want to limit it to the classical four elements, it would work like this:
