Taxonomic Structures

Forms & Processes

The Taxonomy is represented using forms (or structures) and processes that link these forms. THEE forms are abstract patterns of psychosocial categories. Each form (pattern) is a whole phenomenon, an entity, in its own right. The Root Cell i.e. «Will» is elaborated into thousands of derived forms in accord with the processes. While the form and process of immediate interest is relatively simple, the architecture-of-the-whole is rather complicated .

The principal forms in the Taxonomy are:

The principal processes in the Taxonomy are:

●emanation ●condensation ●nesting,
●Q-expansion ●influence (relation) ●grouping, ●transformation.

Abstraction is Worthwhile

Forms and processes are abstractions, and abstraction is the essence of science. Non-scientists are nevertheless strongly encouraged to engage with this section. While THEE has its basis in observable experiences and the handling of practical realities, abstractions are practically useful in several ways:

Picture of the Full Taxonomic Architecture

The Architecture is too complicated for a single 2-dimensional representation; and such a diagram is not needed to explain the location and nature of specific Frameworks. The aim in this section is to present and explain the various structures that make up the architecture.

Graphical representations that show the inter-relation of these taxonomic structures and provide a more comprehensive picture are available in the Architecture Room.
