Description

Analysis of subjective transformation using as fundamental categories Problem, Object, Environment, Subject and Universe models Problems and their solutions in terms of stimuli and response functions relating changes of state in Subjects and Objects together with temporal identity functions mapping sequential states of Subjects and Objects into themselves. The basic ontological hierarchy relating the fundamental categories is defined in terms of participation in Universe using G. Spencer Brown’s calculus of indications. Transcription and unification of the cuneiform first order expressions of the five basic definitions into the iconic circuitry of the second order yields a rough structural analogy of the curled up profile of a human head facing its inverted post cranial anatomy, as if still folded in its mother’s womb. Rearranging the two parts of the expression in a stack gives a grotesque but clearer caricature of an erect adult profile with features evoking comparison with the chakras of kundalini yoga and the meridians of Chinese acupuncture. The definitional sequence of Subject>Environment>Object>Problem may be speculatively associated with the embryonic sequence ectoderm>endoderm>mesoderm>neural groove.
