However, I will start by making an unfamiliar term, familiar: "the archesoma". "Soma" refers to any living creature with a sense of its condition and a sense of its environment. The term, archesoma, refers to the underpinnings of all living creatures' sense of existence. It's based on four universal functions:
The TetraSeed (four-part origin of experience)
We start with Memory, as I believe it to be the most accessible to you, friendly reader.
Thanks to Walt Disney, imagination has been brought before the public; he pointed to imagination as something alive. He highlighted it.
Strange Attractors have a "smell" (or flavor). Attention is like a nose. Yes, a nose, and it sniffs out Strange Attractors, the way a truffle pig sniffs out truffles.
Any other function attributed to attention (or attending) actually comes from the other of the focal points of The TetraSeed.
attention may be narrow and intense
In "ADD" or "ADHD" attention is scattered.
The Center of the Black Hole,
remembered and also recognized by memory.
the more deeply, more densely
INTENSITY may occur in a single incident or may accumulate in multiple incidents (repetition) -- or a combination of intensity and repetition.
until aimed by imagination, imagination perhaps bolstered by memory.
I thought you would.
Now, you know what goes into the TetraSeed transformation procedures: The Four, inner and outer.
Every feature (e.g., "intending") connects with every other feature (e.g., "persistence"). Feel how they connect (e.g., "intending persistence"). They add with each other to create familiar kinds of experience and unfamiliar, emergent, experiences (to be captured by MEMORY).
