There are a number of major language systems operating in the civilized world.  The English language
system is associated with the British Empire and the French with the French Empire.  Spanish and
Portuguese were supported in their hegemony by the empires of Spain and Portugal.  Similar imperial
conditions were responsible for the spread of German, Japanese, Italian, Russian, and Chinese languages.  
Arabic was spread by the Moslem empires of Cairo, Damascus, and Baghdad.  The holy scriptures
associated with these empires include the Latin Vulgate bible of the Roman church, the Confucian classics,
Book of Dao (Tao), and Chinese translations of the Buddhist scriptures (Tripitaka, or three baskets of
scriptures), also, the Koran (written in Arabic).  Scriptures like these were generated by ancient empire:
Roman, Chinese, Byzantine, Moslem, Hindu, etc.

They include written versions of oral language attributed to Moses, Jesus, Confucius, etc.  They are
supported by church organizations such as the Roman Catholic, the Greek Orthodox, the Russian Orthodox,
and have been supported by political organizations such as the Chinese Empire, the Gupta Empire, the
Caliphate, the Sultanate and with cities like Constantinople (Istanbul), Rome, Moscow, Peking, Baghdad, etc.

These empires have disappeared and have been replaced by the United Nations, with its headquarters In
New York, which is attempting to function as a modern League of Athens, lead by the five Nations that won
World War II: UK, France, US, China, Russia (former Soviet Union).  Each (except for China) has its own
league in turn (London and the British Queen rule over the British Commonwealth, former British Empire).  
Russia is the leader of the Commonwealth of Independent States (former Soviet Union).  France and the UK
are members of the European Union.  With the US, they are members of the North Atlantic Treaty Alliance
(NATO).  The US leads the Pan American Union of new world states.  France remains the informal leader of
what was the French Community.

The only nation with enough military power to police this situation is the United States.  This puts it in a
situation similar to that of Athens in the Athenian League, with various rivals playing Sparta, first Germany
and Japan, after World War II, the Soviet Union and China, now it is Iran and Syria and the Moslem world.

The United States is larger in population and area than many of the historic empires.  At times, the federal
government exerts an imperial influence in the American sphere of power through use of the military and
clandestine activities of the CIA.  Sometimes, the American President seems to exert overseas power similar
to that of a weak emperor with overstretched resources.  Understanding what is going on requires an
introduction to the level of organization concept

There is no one right way to present levels of organization, in the approach discussed here, I use an older
16 level cycle.  I have recently expanded this to 16 levels and 32 sublevels and considerably changed the
terminology I use:  thus, I. ARCHOS, the beginning stages, Dynamos, energy, sublevel 1, Chaos, energy flux,
sublevel 2, II PHOROS, emergence, Logos, systems, sub 3, Synos, complexity, sub 4, III COSMOS,
cosmogongy, Orthos, constants and multiverses, sub 5, Schizos, singularities and big bangs, sub 6, IV

DNA, etc.

The Biological and Social:
Level 5. Bios, cells and cell structures, as studied by cell biology, microbiology, information stored in genes.
Level 6. Psychos, tissues, organs, organisms, botany, zoology, psychology, information in hormones, nerve
Level 7. Anthros, populations, tribes, population biology, anthropology, information in signals, human speech

Level 16 regenerates by creating daughter universes at level 1, with the power to evolve level 16 universes,
thus, the system is self perpetuating.

The imperial aspects of American foreign policy are part of the operation of the Demos level of organization
and operate out of imperial cities like Washington and New York.  These new imperial centers support the old
empires of London, Paris, Rome, Berlin, etc.  In general, this imperial aspect weakens from the Demos level
through the emerging Nymphos.  Space is an American lake, but Americans make no attempt to stake out
territory in space.  The Astros and Synos levels of organization are still areas of competition and innovation.

Marvin Harris is an anthropologist who wrote "Cannibals and Kings," a book that describes the first chiefs as
redistributors of goods, as in the Potlatch ceremonies of Pacific Northwest Indians.  Gradually, population
pressure forces more military and less egalitarian uses of chiefs and government.  Males are favored
because of their ability to make war.  The devaluation of women causes them to be exposed in childhood.  
This helps control the population, though its effects on the moral character of civilization and religion are
catastrophic. (See Marvin Harris, "Cannibals and Kings," Vintage Books, 1978, hunter-gathers control
population by prolonged lactation, (the earliest Glutinous, pre-productive, Orientation  p. 23, invention of
agriculture creates population pressure (but, pristine agricultural states are the true Productive Orientation),
p. 43, fertility of group critically related to number of women, p. 57, warfare generates male supremacism
(Exploitative Orientation), p. 81, original society involved redistributor chiefs, p. 102 and 102.  What Harris
calls "pristine states" is what we have termed the "Productive Orientation.  What Harris identifies to warrior
culture is what we are calling "Exploitative Orientation."  What Harris calls the "Hydraulic Trap" is what we are
calling "Receptive Orientation" and, when its expanding phase, the" Glutinous Orientation."  What Harris calls
the beginnings of capitalism is our transition from the Productive Orientation, to the Segregating, Hoarding,  
Refining, and finally through Absolutism and imperial Glutinous mercantilism to Marketing and Utilizing.  What
Harris terms "Industrial Bubble," is our Utilizing, Segregating, and Hoarding , and its distributive, or Marketing,
aspects.)  Our terminology is developed from the work of  Erich Fromm.  See "Man for Himself," Fawcett,
1947, pp. 69 -98.  We have used the Eploitive/Exploitative Orientation, much as it is found in the work of
Fromm, as a variation on the sadistic way of viewing things, the way of the warrior.  We have used the
Receptive Orientation much as Fromm has used it, as a variation on the masochistic.  We have used the
Hoarding Orientation much as Fromm has used it, as specialization of the segregating orientation of local city
states that sometimes promotes capitalistic development, in the case of Italy and France in the 13th to 17th
centuries, progress through what we call the Refining (classical temper) and the Receptive,  Baroque
temper,  rationalist, but expanding into the dialectic, eclectic, and imperial Glutinous (the fullest development
is the Hegelian dialectic and Prussian Imperialism, the 19th Century symbolism, primitivism and
Post-Impressionism, the eclecticism of the imperial 19th Century French, Dutch, British national tempers.  We
have separated capitalist (expressionist) and socialist (realist) variants of Fromm's Marketing Orientation into
Marketing and Utilizing (the difference between Harding and FDR, between Los Angeles and Copenhagen).  
We have broken the Segregating (archaic classical, and impressionistic) and Refining (high classical) modes
of Fromm's Productive Orientation away from the primitive Productive Orientation (equivalent of Harris'
"Pristine States").

So we have created a model, on other pages of this site, that recognizes eight orientations:  the productive
orientation (self maintaining, as in the Maring of New Guinea), the exploitative (exploitive) orientation (tribal
warfare), the segregating and hoarding orientation (isolation, local control), the refining orientation
(aristocratic, classical), the receptive orientation (totalitarian, absolutism), the glutinous orientation
(expansionist, overseas, colonial, imperialism, mercantilism), the marketing orientation (consumer capitalism),
the utilizing orientation (democratic socialism, realism).  Potlatch chiefs represent the productive orientation.  
Tribal militarism represents the exploitative orientation (as described in the paragraph above).

The exploitative orientation can generate extreme Darwinian selection at the Anthros and Demos level as a
result of the extinction of tribes and city states.  Plundered cultures respond by isolating and hoarding stored
wealth.  The result is the growth of the segregating and hoarding orientation and the growth of isolating city
states and hoarding empires.  

In the case of ancient Greece, a Neo-Darwinian model was working similar to the following:

The model developed above uses the systems organizing principles suggested in Sol Tax, ed, Volume I, The
Evolution of Life, University of Chicago,1960, see pp. 14 -21, 47, 95 -113, 197 -223, 307 -343, particularly
important is the notion of evolutionary feed-back, see pp. 338 - 340, 349 - 378, 381 -471, note Wright on

In the case of ancient Greece, isolation, the segregating and hoarding orientations, allowed the development
of separate city states that were able to defend themselves against exploitation and empire.  As these city
states developed local culture and local aristocracies, the refining orientation and its classical temper began
to dominate.  The most powerful city states were able to pass on cultural notions to the imperial systems that
began to emerge and power was consolidated into absolutism and empire (glutinous) by individuals like
Alexander the Great and his generals.  The expansion of imperial power centers stimulated consumption of
wealth and the glutinous and receptive orientations.

The productive orientation stimulated an explosion of exploitive orientation activity when growing population
pressure and the invention of a new form of long ship allowed the  Vikings to raid the coasts of England,
France, and Ireland.
The exploitive orientation stimulated the segregating and hoarding orientations, as local kingdoms reacted to
the pressures generated by Viking raids.  This local specialized development gradually stimulated the
emergence of local aristocracy and local centers of knowledge and skill.  The refining orientation began to
dominate in many city states, not just in places like Flanders, but in Italian city states like Florence.  This
return to the refining orientation and its classical temper is called the "Renaissance."

Just as the high point of the Greek refining orientation, and its classical temper, stimulated an increase in the
receptive and imperial (glutinous) orientations, and finally the marketing and utilizing orientations, as
Classical civilization developed into Hellenic, Roman and finally Byzantine and Moslem extension of Greek
Classical Set Points (cultural models), so the refining orientation of Florence, Flanders, Elizabethan England
would stimulate the receptive and glutinous orientations that would manifest in French absolutism, Spanish
and Portuguese Empire, British and French and Dutch Empire.  At the same time art and literature began to
pass from the classical temper to the baroque and rococo (glutinous).

The gradual emergence of the Thermos level of civic and national organization, out of the Demos, brought
with it the increasing emergence of the marketing and utilizing orientations, the former characterized more by
the capitalist and consumer populist political modes and the later by the socialist, egalitarian, and
democratic.  This stimulated the emergence of the realist and naturalist tempers in art (normally associated
with the utilizing orientation).

Africa, South and Central America, and the Pacific were subject to exploration by the expanding Spanish,
Portuguese, French, Dutch, and British empires.  Cultures in these regions were generally at the Anthros, or
early Demos levels of organization.  The presence of these primitive cultures, many in the primitive glutinous
(food gathering), productive or exploitative orientations, stimulated conflict between these emerging empires
and drew these empires into the exploitive mode in the race to obtain the largest share of available plunder
(to feed their glutinous imperial needs).  These new outbreaks of exploitive activity, and the pressures and
conflicts associated with them, stimulated a temporary return to the refining and segregating orientations in
the form of the Enlightenment, as well as a return to the classical temper in the form of Neoclassical art.

The impact of cultures still in the productive mode on cultures in the refining mode stimulated a new
emergence of artistic temper in the form of the romantic, the symbolic, and later the primitive (glutinous
consumption by empire of its primitive gathering elements) mode of the Post-Impressionist.  The further
development of the isolating and segregating orientations as a result of the rise of nationalism and
republicanism, stimulated the emergence of the impressionist temper.  Finally, the effect of increased activity
in the marketing orientation and the rise of consumer capitalism stimulated the expressionist temper in art.

As the Electros, and Astros began to emerge from the Thermos, increasing amounts of individualism and
segregating orientation activity could be seen, supporting the technical and information specialization
needed to facilitate the emergence of these higher levels.  Conflicts between the Anthros, Demos, Thermos,
and Electros levels of organization, and the aristocracy supporting the organization at various levels,
generated major conflicts in the form of  World War I and II.  Da Da, Cubist, and various forms of Abstract
and Abstract Expressionist art were manifestations of these developments and demonstrated tempers
appropriate to the new forms of exploitive and segregating orientation that were emerging.          

Effective set points require the healthy functioning of all levels of organization.  A healthy functioning
productive orientation gets its energy at the Axios and Protos levels from sources such as sunlight.  It
recycles necessary minerals at the Atomos and Zymos levels and preserves genetic information at the Bios
and Psychos levels.  A healthy functioning exploitive orientation is healthy at the Anthros level and obtains
materials and energy from the productive orientation without destroying that orientation, or the organization
that supports it.  The segregating and refining orientations also support a healthy Anthros that does not
damage the exploitive and productive orientations that support them.  The Demos and Thermos of the
receptive and glutinous orientations are equally healthy and obtain energy from supporting refining and
exploitive orientations without damage to these orientations and their supportive organizational structure at
all lower levels of order and energy and material collection.  Finally, the Thermos, Electros, Astros, Synos,
and all emerging higher levels of organization, of the marketing and utilizing orientations, are equally healthy
and supportive of the orientations that feed them at all levels of supporting systems process.

Dysfunctions, such as those associated with Hitler, Stalin, Saddam, seem to involve unhealthy Anthros
behavior of the tribal and exploitive type, supported by receptive and glutinous (even marketing) orientations
that are totalitarian and imperial in character.  These tribal and imperial systems tend to avoid normal
utilizing, segregating, and refining processes necessary for healthy set points.  They are weak at the Anthros
and Demos level in all but the expansion of the segregating orientation into the exploitive, glutinous,  and
receptive.  They compensate for this weakness by technical competence at the emerging Electros, Astros,
Synos, Nymphos, Daimonos, and Titanos levels.  These local tyrants operate tribal and imperial systems that
are parasites on higher levels of organization, much as a virus, bacterium, fungus, nematode, tapeworm can
live as a  parasite on higher organisms.

Because of its situation as an island kingdom, as a world sea power, England, and the English language
Anthros, Demos, and Thermos, have been able to preserve much of their integrity and hold that integrity
against emerging conflicts at the Thermos and Electros levels.  This isolation has kept them from infection
with many of the tribal and imperial parasites operating on the continent.  Even so, their overseas activity has
often become imperial and glutinous, they have been drawn into conflicts over empire, and finally created the
greatest overseas imperial system known in history: the British Commonwealth.  The American Demos has
been subjected to a similar experience as a subunit of the larger system driven by printed English, broadcast
English, data processing English.  Anthros (oral language) based communication is  taken to written, printed,
broadcast, programing, and Internet  levels and beyond (Demos, Thermos, Electros, Astros, Synos).

A diagram showing the relationship of some of these Athros/Demos based Thermos/Electros systems might

The Japanese Anthros-Demos-Thermos-Electros is playing the role of the creative concentration point for
the world system, the language system most willing to absorb and consider new ideas.  This Japanese
Demos is very heavy on the utilizing, segregating and refining orientations, as well social habits bound in
receptive orientation traditions.  The strength of this social core is probably one source of the ability of the
Japanese system to absorb technical and scientific ideas.

In contrast, the Arabic Athros-Demos-Thermos-Electros is playing the role of the Demos least ready to
accept the ideas of the West.  It tends to fixate on the Koran and traditional Islamic law and culture.  The
shattered character of the old Moslem Caliphate, its segregation into numerous separate states: Tunisia,
Morocco, Algeria, Egypt, Sudan, Arabia, Jordan, Palestine, Syria, Iraq, Libya, etc., under the influence of
various foreign language systems, Italian in Libya, English in Egypt, French in Syria, Spanish in parts of
Morocco, this has generated a degree of instability that makes it difficult for the Arabic Demos to find an
effective way of integrating new ideas.  The instability tends to stimulate a retreat to exploitative, hoarding,
and receptive orientations that encourage dependent, masochistic, and compulsive response systems that
make it difficult for this Demos to adapt to new situations.

The English language Demos-Thermos-Electros-Astros-Synos has become the model for the individualistic
approach to organizational emergence.  There is great emphasis on local debate, local analysis and various
aspects of the segregating orientation perfected in the city states of ancient Greece and later in the British
Parliament, the colonial assemblies of the British colonies and in the academic institutions of the English
speaking world: Oxford, Cambridge, Harvard, Yale, etc.  Associated with this Demos are notions developed
by Charles Darwin, such as "natural selection" and by Adam Smith, the "free market."  The access of the
English Demos-Thermos-Electros-Astros-Synos, through London, Washington, New York, Johnson Space
Center in Houston, to the great sea of water, air, and space is probably one source of its ability to emphasize
individualism, segregation, analysis.  The sea of water, air, and space allows it to integrate, mix, and join
where and when it chooses.

In contrast, the Chinese language Demos-Thermos-Electros-Astros-Synos has remained the model for the
collective approach to organizational emergence.  Even in its embrace of the capitalist free market, the
Chinese Demos remains far more collectivist and biased toward receptive and hoarding orientations than
almost any of the segments and aspects of the English language social system.  The Chinese language
Demos tends to have access to the ocean, and the sea of space, only from major cities and ports like Hong
Kong.  The Chinese conceptual system is built more upon the notion of the state than the notion of the
individual.  Its geography tends to be focused on a central core of continental basins drained by long rivers
like the Yellow River.  The inability of China to easily escape these basins and the vulnerability of these
basins to attack from the grasslands and steppes beyond is a historical theme of the Chinese Demos.  Thus
the English Demos encourages the narcissistic, and in its American and Australian variant, the histrionic,
antisocial, sadistic.  The Chinese Demos is more dependent, borderline, masochistic, compulsive, passive
aggressive.  In its Buddhist and Daoist (Taoist) variants, even schizotypal.

The Hindi language Demos is much more loosely organized at its edges, more tightly organized at its deep
core.  It is associated with the Anthros and Demos organization of a number of South Asian languages and
cultures rooted in the Hindu forms in "Sanskrit," and in the Theravada Buddhist, in "Pali."  These Anthros and
Demos systems preserve the refining and receptive orientations that support the remains of an number of
ancient cultures and empires dating from the empire of Asoka and the empire of the Guptas.  They preserve
a number of cultural systems that are resisting, at some level, religious, philosophical, social, the full impact
of Western scientific and social ideas.  One of the sources of the conservative character of these Anthros
and Demos systems is the role that the Himalayas have played in protecting South Asian language systems
from invasion and conquest, prior to Islam and the Portuguese, French, and English.  Language systems of
the Himalayas and Tibet provide a transition between South Asia and the Chinese language system.

The geography of Northern Europe has been exposed to constant invasion both by land and sea.  Northern
Europe has developed Anthros and Demos systems that are rivals for dominance in technology and
science.  As a result, the Anthros and Demos systems of Europe are tipped more toward science and
technology and the utilizing and marketing orientations.  If the Hindi language has deep roots in Sanskrit and
in local Anthros and Demos systems, the Dutch, French, German, Danish put greater emphasis on
expansion into the Electros, Astros, Synos and beyond.
Of these systems, the GERMAN, RUSSIAN, FRENCH, and SPANISH are most important.  The FRENCH is
more conservative and tipped more toward the socialist and democratic utilizing orientation.  The SPANISH is
more commercial and expressive and tipped more toward the marketing orientation (with many exceptions,
note Cuba).
The RUSSIAN tends to be more collectivist, and the GERMAN, in its current development (post-Hitler), more
Individualist (lead by the Swedish, Danish, Norwegian, and Dutch Anthros-Demos-Thermos, with which the
GERMAN is associated, through the European Union and NATO).

This system is far from perfect, but we can see how these systems tend to order themselves geographically.  
A similar order appears to correlate with brain architecture, working from lower brain autonomic and
reticulate at the outside toward upper brain basal ganglia and cerebral association at the inner center of the
diagram, the top representing the right hemisphere of the cerebrum (meaning and connection emphasis)
and the bottom representing the left hemisphere (fact and language).   The left side of the diagram as
cingulate and frontal lobe, moving toward Broca's, motor area, somatosensory, parietal, temporal, and
occipital lobes.

These tempers, orientations, systems functions, seem to cluster together in certain patterns:

Indo-European tribes develop mutant cultural ideas in the productive orientation and carry these ideas with
them as they expand in the exploitive orientation, becoming expert at tribal warfare.  The ancient Dorian
Greeks are examples that fit this model.  Later, the Greeks would settle down and develop local towns and
city states.  These states would become part of trading organizations.  The Greek cities became rivals with
other Mediterranean city states, as the marketing orientation began to overwhelm the exploitive orientation.  
Consolidation of power among city states, the absorption of city states into larger kingdoms, eventually
empires like those of Persia, Alexander the Great, finally Roman and Byzantium, brought greater emphasis
on the imperial assimilation/glutinous orientation.

As these practices stabilized, city states would isolate, developing their own unique successful combinations
of ideas.  Gradually, as these ideas were perfected, first the segregating, hoarding,  and then the refining
orientation took hold, establishing a Classical temper Set Point of ideas and models in culture, politics,
philosophy, literature, drama, and art.  These set points were emulated and absorbed by developing
empires, those of the Hellenic states, Rome, Byzantium, etc.  Feed back mechanics were established to
maintain order, to assure adherence to the idealized set points over larger and larger complexes of cities,
countryside, and communication and transportation systems.  At this point, the receptive orientation began to
triumph over the refining orientation and republicanism and aristocracy were replaced by various
combinations of totalitarian, bureaucratic, militaristic, and theocratic practice.  We see this as we pass from
Democratic and Republican Athens (and Early Rome) to Classical Athens, Hellenic Empire and Hellenic
imperial glutinous and assimilating states, early and late Roman Empire and Byzantine Empire.   

At lower levels of organization, Anthros, Demos, early Thermos, utilizing and marketing orientations are more
limited, found mainly in the early and late phases of the imperial development cycle.  At higher levels of
organization, Electros, Astros, Synos, the utilizing and marketing orientations, the democratic and populist
emphasis come to play a more and more important role in the cycles of mutation and set point system
establishment and renewal.                                                
Even so, the set point system cycle is always subject to predation and parasitism.  It is always possible for
fringe systems to develop methods of conquest and attack that allow them to capture and overthrow
vulnerable elements of evolving organizational complexes and absorb them into rogue empires like those of
Stalin, Hitler,etc, that generated the internal crisis associated with World War II.  Instability within the Arabic
world is creating the opportunity for the development of chaotic systems like those that emerged within the
unstable Eurasian Demos-Thermos in the early and mid 20th Century.  Problems increase when this
instability draws unstable elements with more organized Demos-Thermos-Electos-Astros systems, like those
of the US, UK, NATO, UN into this chaos in ways that are destructive to the larger emerging order.

Lets look in depth at our systems model:

                              Constant                        Principle

                 Conservation                Ideal                     System

            Preservation   Essence                  Depth               Complete

                    Definite                     Result                    Sameness

                                  Structure                    Regular


Now lets flip the model and look at it from the back:


                            Change                        Motion

      Distribution     Accident                        Surface              Process

                            Indefinite      Magic        Novel

                                         Fluid        Irregular


If the chart above is flipped and goes from right to left, rather than left to right, it will look like some of those
at the beginning of our series so we have:
six faces of a cube: self to group, fixed to energy, whole to part
eight corners of a cube, ideal to expression, magic to result, analysis to mixture, freedom to order
twelve edges of a cube, eternal to time, locus to space, conservation to expenditure, novel to sameness
system to break, indefinite to definite
these are broken down in turn into infinite to finite, infinitesimal to measurable, peculiar to average, local to
principle to motion, complete to process, ground to figure, fluid to structure, differentiation to equal, irregular
to regular, change to constant, preservation to distribution.
the angles of the cube are essence to accident, source to product, isolation to assembly, disagreement to
surface to depth, inclusion to exclusion, possible to reality, medium to segment

another set of angles should appear
off of Magic should be power and mixture haze and expression vulgar and freedom revolution as opposed to
Result and stability, analysis and accuracy, Ideal and code, order and regulation
these are not showing up in the above model because of the effects of flattening and stretching, thus:




            Self          Infinitesimal    Eternal            Infinite      Whole

         Peculiar                                                                    Universal           

Energy Revolution Freedom Locus Analysis Accuracy  Fixed   Regulation Order Space Mixture Haze Energy

           Local                                                                         Average  

                Part        Finite                 Time         Measurable      Group




As you may have noted, the version shown above is the basic prototype for most of the presentations of this
model used on this web site!

But consider the following:
Group                                                                 Group                                                                            Group

Equal                                                           Agreement

               Constant                           Depth                           Infinite

  Finite                                                  Surface                                        Change

Measurable                                                       Accident                                                      Distribution

Group                                                                  Group                                                                           

We could do more work to fill this pattern in, but the basic square above should be familiar to us as Aristotle's
Four causes, the material (indefinite), the pattern cause (definite), the motion cause (break), and the
purpose cause (system).

There is one more of these:                        Medium
                                  Flux  Change Expenditure Distribution     Group
                             Irregular              Expression                   Equal
                          Novel                        Part                        Sameness
                            Differentiation        Analysis                     Regular
                          Self   Preservation Conservation Constant  Fixed   

In this case, we move from novel differentiation to preservation and conservation to regularness and
equalness to expenditure.  This is a seed that is differentiated, falls on the soil and is preserved, reproduces
the regular features of its kind and expends its energy to differentiate a new flower, thus we have the natural
cycle of reproduction, growth, differentiation, and recycling and storage.

In the model shown above, we are turning a cube from the FIXED to ASSEMBLY face, it will continue on from
flux to self.  We need to turn the cube to the side in order to display the Fixed to Flux faces:

So the summary of the above would look like this:

This is arranged on four faces of a cube as follows:

Thus we have the six faces of a cut open cube, the eight corners of a cut open cube, the twelve edges of the
cut open cube.    According to the symbolism that we have been using,

THE EIGHT CORNERS:                                                                         
PRODUCTIVITY =  HEAVEN,  Romantic temper, Productive Orientation, Magic, Artemis, Athena, Poseidon
PRODUCT = EARTH, Realistic temper, Utilizing Orientation, Science, Hermes and Hestia (Zeus)
MODEL = AIR, Classical temper, Refining Orientation, Metaphysics, Athena and Hephaestus (Hera)
DECAY = DUST, Expressionist temper, Marketing Orientation, Business, Ares and Aphrodite (Hermes)
FREEDOM = FIRE, Da Da, Cubist temper, Exploitive Orientation, Design, Apollo and Artemis (Ares)
ORDER = WOOD, Baroque temper, Receptive Orientation, Government, Hephaestus, Hestia, Demeter
ANALYSIS = SALT, Impressionist temper, Segregating Orientation, Logic, Mathematics, Zeus and Hera
SYNTHESIS = WATER, Post-Impressionist, Eclectic temper, Hoarding Orientation, Story, Literature, Demeter
and Poseidon (Aphrodite)

SELF = HOT, Volcano, Zen, Phenomenology, Aristocracy (Japan)  (Anterior Cerebrum, Frontal Lobes)
(Uranus) (Sky Father)
ASSEMBLY = COLD, River Delta Sediment, Education, Social Welfare, Socialism (China) (Posterior, Parietal
Lobes), (Gaia) (Earth Mother)

FIXED = FRAMEWORK, Continental Desert Mountains, Scholarship, Legalism (Iran) (Association areas in
Cerebrum) (Cronus) (Established System based on Mt. Olympus)
FLUX = STORM, Ocean Islands, Dance, Opera, Revolution (Samoa) (reticulate activation, autonomic nerves,
(Rhea) (Oceanus, Titans and Monsters)

WHOLE = WET, Tropical Rainforest, Religion, Monarchy (Thailand)  (Right Cerebral Hemisphere) (Silene)
(Dark Moon, Sleep)
PART = DRY, Arctic Tundra, Engineering, Capitalism, Federalism (Sweden) (Left Cerebral Hemisphere)
(Helios) (Bright Sun, Wakeful)

Note that Yellow Bile, Choleric Temper is also FIRE, Black Bile, Melancholic Temper is also EARTH, Blood,
Sanguine Temper is also AIR, and the Phlegmatic temper is also WATER.  These four faces of the cube are
also the four faces of an Earth, Air, Fire, Water tetrahedron.  The vertexes of the tetrahedron are the
Heaven, Dust, Wood, Salt opposites of the four faces.  The edges of the tetrahedron are the six faces of the
cube: Self, Assembly, Fixed, Flux, Whole and Part.


Look at some of the basic works on Complexity Theory, for example M. Mitchell Waldrop, "Complexity," Simon
& Schuster, 1992, p. 119, the similarity in the evolution of technical systems and biological systems, p. 145,
complex systems in ants, cells, ecology, brains, etc. p. 169 hierarchical aspect of complex organizational
development, p. 193, the movement from chaos to order.

Roger Lewin, "Complexity," Macmillan, 1992, p. 188, communities developing up from the edge of chaos,
from chaos to order, p. 189, global structures emerging from local relationships.

Refer to the work of Gregory Bateson.  Consider Bateson's "Steps to an Ecology of Mind," Ballantine Books,
1972, on page 429, Bateson discusses cybernetic systems, self corrective systems.  These systems consist
of input and analysis of data (Salt), set points (Air), feedback mechanisms (Wood, Glass), resulting
measurable properties (Earth), mutations in set points (Heaven), recombination and gene pools of these set
points (Water), emergence of adaptive phenotypes (Dust), and natural selection and extinction of
maladaptive set points (Fire).  Bateson discusses levels in these systems, human organism (Bios and
Psychos), human society (Anthros and Demos) and the larger ecosystem (Thermos, Electros, and beyond).  
The basic mechanisms seen above are described at the genetic level (Bios to Psychos) by Theodosius
Dobzhansky in "Genetics and The Origin of Species," Columbia University Press, 1951,
Chapter I of this text presents the problem of mutation (Heaven). Chapter II presents the problem of
populations and gene pools (Water), Chapter IV discusses selection (Fire), Chapter V discusses feedback
mechanism that maintain gene pool homeostasis (Wood, Glass), Chapter VI discusses the emergence of
adaptive races (Dust and Earth).  Chapters VII, and VIII discuss the isolating mechanisms (Salt) that
segregate out genes from the larger gene pools into local populations and emerging species.  Chapters III,
IX, and X discuss these groups of genes as groups of set points defining adaptive models (see p. 279, for
adaptive peaks) (Air).
Refer to Charles Hampden-Turner, "Maps of the Mind," Collier Books, 1981, for some of the models used
above, for example, pp. 86-87 showing the polarity between Left Brain verbal, analytic, and Right Brain
non-verbal, holistic, synthetic, timeless.  Refer to models of the Limbic System, p. 85, choleric to phlegmatic,
melancholic to sanguine on p.79, sensory cortex and motor cortex, pp. 74-75, active (flux) to passive (fixed)
and bad (part) to good (whole) on pp.152 to153.

For material on the processing disorders, refer to Beck, Freeman, and Associates, "Cognitive Therapy of
Personality Disorders," The Guilford Press, 1990, and Theodore Millon, et. al., "Personality Disorders in
Modern Life," John Wiley and Sons, 2000, and 2004, and the DSM-III and DSM-IV (American Psychiatric

Association, Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, 3rd and 4th editions, 1980 and 1994,
revised 2000).

For material on the development of Universal States, Receptive and Glutinous Orientations, Baroque and
Eclectic tempers, Glass or Wood and Water, Order and Synthesis, the collective and masochistic (as
opposed to the sadistic and individual), see Arnold J. Toynbee, " A Study of History," volume 7A, "Universal
States," Galaxy, Oxford University Press, 1963.

For the geometric layout of our model, refer to R. Buckminster Fuller, Synergetics 2, Macmillan, 1979,
particularly the charts following page 360.

For the evolutionary theory, refer to Sol Tax, ed, Evolution After Darwin, Volume 1, The Evolution of Life, U of
Chicago, 1960, with particular attention to articles by Huxley, Shapley, Rensch, Simpson, Stebbins, Axelrod
(with whom I had the pleasure to do graduate study in paleobotany in 1964), Emerson, Mayr, Waddington,
Dobzhansky, and Wright.  Note a modern presentation of these concepts in Richard Dawkins, The Ancestor's
Tale, Houghton Mifflin, 2004.

Above is the Boundless Whole
Pole of the Cube and
Octahedron of all things.  To
the left is the Social Group
Pole, the Youngest Daughter,
the top trigram line Yin.  It is
the opposite of the Singular
Self pole, the top Youngest
Son line Yang.  In the upper left
hand corner above is the
Water Pit Trigram corner of
the Cube.  Below and to the
left is the Lake Trigram corner
of the Cube, face of the
Octahedron, the synthesis, the
water face/ cube corner.
Above is Part Pole and
to the Right is Social
Group Pole to the upper
right is the Earth Trigram
and to the lower right is
the Thunder Trigram.  
The Thunder Trigram is
made up of three lines,
the top yin line from the
Social Group pole to the
right, the middle yin line
from the Part Pole,
above and below, and
the bottom yang line from
the Flux Energy Pole to
the right and below:
Here we see the Four Trigrams that group around the Social Group face of the
cube of all things, vertex of the octahedron of all things.  All four share the top
lineyoungest daughter yin of the Social Group face/vertex.  These four are Earth
to the top left, Water Pit to the top right, Thunder to the bottom left and Lake to
the bottom right.
The Cube is flattened and shown as a rolled out octahedron, the
Part, Whole, Self, Group, Flux, and Fixed faces are each a
octahedron vertex, and the eight trigram corners are eight faces of
the flattened octahedron, with Speak as Thunder Trigram, Free as
Flame Trigram, Mind as Mountain Trigram, Earth as Fact Trigram,
Feel as Lake Trigram, Fate as Water Pit Trigram, Model as Wind
Trigram, and Magic as Heaven Trigram.
Dissection and Investigation above
are the Mountain Trigram, Problem
and condition above right are Earth
Trigram, Order and Organization,
further right are Water Pit Trigram,
While Ideal and Paradigm, far right,
above, are Wind Trigram. Mountain
is the opposite corner from Lake,
Water Pit from Flame, Wind from
Thunder and Heaven from Earth.
Symmetry and Harmony to right
are Water Pit and Scarcity and
Poverty below are Earth

Flame Trigram = Art and Water Pit Trigram = Government, Heaven Trigram = Magic and Earth Trigram = Anthropology
Mountain Trigram = Mathematics and Lake Trigram = Literature,  Wind Trigram = Metaphysics and Thunder Trigram =
Business.  Education is Youngest Daughter Yin, Scholarship is Eldest Daughter Yin, Technology is Middle Daughter
Yin.  Religion is Middle Son Yang, Phenomenology is Youngest Son Yang, and Dance is Eldest Son Yang.

Flame, Earth, Wind, and Lake are the same as the Fire, Earth, Air, Water tetrahedron, which has its antitetrahedron of
Water Pit, Heaven, Thunder and Mountain, or Pottery (and Metal), Heaven, Noise (and Dust) and Salt.

These are the artistic tempers, Fire=Cubist to Pottery (Water Pit) =Baroque, Salt (Mountain) =Impressionist to Water
(Lake) =Post-Impressionist (also eclectic, symbolist, primitive, fashion art, thus, any complex movement based on
accretion), Air (Wind) = Classical to Noise-Dust (Thunder) =Expressionist, Heaven = Romantic to Earth = Realist.  

These are the antimonies of Kant's Critique of Pure Reason, Infinite (Heaven) to Finite (Earth), Simple (Mountain) to
Complex (Lake), Necessary Being (Idealism) (Wind/Air) to None (Pragmatism) (Thunder/Dust), Indeterminism
(Fire/Flame) to Determinism (Water Pit/Pottery), thus Source to Result, Mind to Feeling, Model to Expression, Free to

In economic orientations, Primitive Productivity to Utilization (Industrial Production, Socialism, Utilitarianism),  
Segregation to Redistribution, Hoarding and Refinement to Marketing, Exploitation to Receptivity.

In evolutionary systems, Mutation to Phenotype, Isolation and Speciation to Gene Pool, Syngamy, and Recombination,  
Genetic Set Point to Maladaptive Expression, Natural Selection to Adaptive Feedback

In philosophy, Romanticism to Materialism, Empiricism to Dialectic (Hegelian, Marxist, Neoconfucian I Ching, etc.),
Idealism to Pragmatism, Existentialism to Rationalism.

In culture, Aboriginal Africa, Indonesia, Amazon to Europe, Mediterranean to Chinese, India and Tibet to North Atlantic
Coast, Oceanic to Persian.  Thus the magic of the Congo against the anthropology of France, the mathematics of
Greece against the I Ching literature of Yellow River China, the metaphysics of Tibet against the business culture of
New York City, the art of Polynesia and Japan against the government of the Persian Empire.
