Oh– very interesting musings!
I like this sort of discussion because I think it’s the sort of high-level conversations that we need to have in order to iron this out.
To answer your question about the dinner, I first have to explain my idea of conceptualization/abstraction, and go form there.
It might be interesting to consider the value of researching into ‘letting go’ of function over-modulation. In other words, the opposite of gaining dev level sticks. Releasing them, for therapeutic purposes.
It’s possible that gaining, as well as losing, function presence may both be valuable and healing, depending on the person’s…[Read more]
Reference data and the ethics of the system, ie; the ethics of the type store model. The ethics is.. The only “issue”
Right. Regarding the ethics, this is also being addressed now since, as explained in this post, Model 2 will give our “vultology classifications” that are as-is descriptions of a person’s vultology, without necessarily making any…[Read more]
@gnosis – Right. Thanks for that, I agree with you here too!
That was a missing detail on my end. I’ve changed memory to st-memory (short-term memory). Short-term memory would just entail the current objects loaded into awareness right-now. P+ doesn’t search in long-term memory, otherwise it would basically be a P- function too, and make P-…[Read more]
I share your same concerns with the data collection and I am aware of these problems. There are even more problems than the ones you listed, and fixing all of them would indeed be hard. Not just hard, but it would require an entirely different approach from the very beginning of the pipeline. Potential issues I can think of, just off…[Read more]
I like your thoughts on this! I think I actually agree with you in principle, and consider the diagram of the OP to be a simplification. Yet, a necessary premise to start from.
The good thing about mathematics and computation is that infinite complexity can be theoretically modeled, despite our limited ability to really grasp the numbers. With…[Read more]

These are good questions and they’re partly addressed here: https://cognitivetypology.com/index.php?title=Motus_Project
Coming Up with a Set of Signals
In brief, the question of whether or not the selection of signals (i.e. the codex) itself was void of bias is something I don’t think humans can measure very well. I believe that we would need to…[Read more]
Notice: For anyone else who got a message from Grace Marc, please ignore the message. It was a spambot that got through — now that the forum is open.
I have a Captcha on the site but it doesn’t seem to be enough to catch spambots, so I’ve also added email verification to help with that. When making a new account, you’ll get a link in your email.…[Read more]
Psychodynamics brings other aspects into focus, such as the qualia of pleasure and pain. If we propose that all cognitive processes are not just mechanical/computer instructions, but that they have a living motive & aim for acting, then the…[Read more]
What’s the plan for the dev lev profiles? Are they being retired as part of Model 1? Poor Je’s never got one…
The dev level profiles need to be finished. I plan to bring Model 1 up to 100%. So the Je I— dev level will be written, as well as the rest.
Also could you talk about the Model 2 type “names” (i.e. PR-Ms-Gr) and how y…
As you can see, these few sets of instructions produce a behavior that can be summarized as: look for new things, if you see new things, look more around that area. If there are no new things in that area, go look in another area. Rinse and repeat. This is the explorer function, which is basically a scouting function.
I skipped over a few…[Read more]
This is a thread detailing the operations of P+ (corresponding to Pe) from a computational point of view. Now, I know most members here are not into programming so I’m going to not stress that portion of it in this thread. Instead, I want to give a tangible and visual explanation of what the code means. Please feel free to ask questions if…[Read more]
So, all of you have been so patient with me this past month or two, as I’ve given very little info on what’s happening to the site and theory. I finally have some time to give more info. 🙂
Q. Will the model be destroyed?
The first thing I gotta emphasize is that I’m not intending to destroy the previous work or the CT theory that you’ve…[Read more]
Auburn replied to the topic Starshade Ti and Gnosis Ne; Traumatic Development/ Growth of an alternate functn in the forum Cognitive Functions 1 week, 2 days ago
Heh, gnosis I feel your pain. 🙂 Believe me when I say the decision to move to the new notation was not born of convenience or desire, but of necessity. I knew it wouldn’t be a popular choices, or necessarily an aesthetic choice. The complexity does increase, and it makes the learning curve harder, yes. All those seem like negatives at first,…[Read more]
Auburn replied to the topic Starshade Ti and Gnosis Ne; Traumatic Development/ Growth of an alternate functn in the forum Cognitive Functions 1 week, 3 days ago
Here’s some preliminary evidence to justify on why we need to start thinking differently of cognitive functions and development in CT. The current theory/assumption is that cognitive functions are fixed in their cognitive space/architecture to one or the other (Ne or Se), (Fi or Ti), not both and not crossing each other. Meaning we only ever use 4…
I watched only about 1/3 into Karolyn’s video, but I think I get what she’s saying. And I think I need to clarify several things.
What Karolyn’s talking about falls outside of the scope of “Fi” by the current system (i.e. R-) because emotionality is a different phenomenon that varies independent of object-management-style. Anybody can be…[Read more]
So, I’ve seen your messages for the past month and I’m sorry I haven’t addressed them. I’ve currently been crunching ~10 hour days at work for the past few weeks, and I’m just now getting to the latter end of that ordeal. So, regarding your inquiry — I would like to separate out two topics: one being CT’s methodological control,…[Read more]
I agree with you @grockl, I don’t think veggie-only options are the full solution. I’ve also been looking into lab-grown meat and I think that is also part of the solution. There is a restaurant which opened recently some 30 minutes from where I currently live that is selling lab-grown meat right now:
I’m excited to…[Read more]
