Andrius: Note: this section describes a direction which I took in August and September of 2003. I was looking for a deep way to arrive at the basic structures. I thought a lot about how everything and anything may reach out to each other and have empathy for each other. I also drew on my thoughts on the fifteen PrinciplesOfLife in Christopher Alexander's The Nature of Order. This approach is fundamental to my thoughts on GeneralStructure.
Everything has empathy for Anything through the RepresentationsOfTheThreesome. Everything has empathy for anything in various degrees. The representations of the threesome express such empathy. The degree of empathy is given by the number of states that are recurring.
Anything has empathy for everything through shifts. The members of the threesome can (by way of the representations) be understood as going beyond themselves, as shifts from one state to another. Representations allow us to think of isolated perspectives, not just the entire whole.
take a stand:
SecondaryStructures arise from having everything, with a given scope of concern, go beyond itself to empathize with the experience of a primary structure.
The subject of this empathy is the relationship between everything and anything. For example, let us consider when everything wishes for nothing. In particular, here everything wishes for nothing with regard to its relationship with anything. We may think of anything as everything plus slack. Here then, all the slack or goodness is expected to come from anything, because everything wishes for nothing.
So the directions of the good, as felt here by everything, give rise to the following emotional responses:
The empathy here is different if everything's scope of concern becomes larger, as in "everything wishes for something". What does everything wish for? That the anythings which are beyond it seek to connect with it, that they "involuntarily, actively, be connected". So now there is an expectation on the part of everything. And also the directions of the good will now be interpreted as a two-sided effort, both God and person. I think empathy here will give rise to the twelve topologies, by way of the twelve ways that I've observed how we can conceive being connected with God. So I am thinking about that and will try to work that out.
