Constituents of the MInd (CoM)

We now present the basic Constituents of the Mind (CoM):

Event/s (E)
Sound/s (Sn)
Scenery (Sc)
Thought (t)
Odour (Od)
Memory (?)
Emotion/s (Em)
Nothingness (o)

We can now add the (+,-, o) Symbols on any of the above, and they represent the positive, negative and neutral. The (+,-,o) give the (CoM) flavours. Thus, with respect to Emotions, we can state (Em+) means a happy or positive emotion, (Em-) is a sad emotion, whilst (Em0) is a neutral, bland emotion.

Nothingness: is the mental state when the person is being awake and ‘vacant’, or thinking about nothing. (Review the ‘Study of Vision’ paper).

Next, we need to add the Awareness Factor (AF) (?+/?-): this is fundamentally crucial to the (CoM) because the (AF) ultimately defines the entire structure of the Mind, the ‘Self’, Consciousness of the person in question. Thus, the more the Observer (Ob) is being aware of any of the (CoM) the more (Ob = Com), and the less (Ob) is aware of any of the Constituents of the Mind, the greater the degree of nothingness will arise.

The Unconscious (U): this is the unknowable aspect of the Mind as it relates to the person in question. The definition of (U) is vague, blurred, abstract and it becomes meaningless to try to ‘define’ what it is. We can simply study its output and the effects it has upon the Conscious Mind (C).

Unknown Mental Entity (ume): these are mental entities within the mind of the person in question that cause the person to act, speak, move (etc.) and whose origin are unknowable. For example, (x) moves his arm for no reason. He did not move his arm because of an itch, or because he was feeling uncomfortable or shy. He simply moved his arm for no reason and, what is more, there are no known reason for the movement of the arm and that is why I refer to this phenomenon as (ume).

General Abstract Vision (gav) & Mental Abstract Vision (mav): This has been discussed in the ‘Vision’ paper. General Abstract Vision is what you see around you, while (mav) is whatever images you ‘see’ in your mind.

Vision can be (V+1): which what you see in general, without focusing or concentrating on the Observed Object.
Vision can be (Vo): which is when (Ob) is focusing on a particular point on the (OO). Same as the Focused Observed Point (FOP).
Vision of Nothingness (VoN): is when (Ob) is being vacant, thinking of nothing. Same as Nothingess (o).

We now can add further related points, with respect to the Mind:
(Ob) – the Observer.
(OO) – the Observed Object, egg. A flower.
(FOP) – Focused Observed Point, e.g. When (Ob) focuses on a particular point on the flower.
(Mt) – Mental Transaction.
(O) – Nothingness, e.g. When (Ob) is thinking of nothing, or is being vacant, or is blanking out.

Mental Plane (mp): is when (Ob) is completely influenced, affected by an event, emotion, or anything affective, so that the observer in question finds his entire emotional structure has changed as a reaction to the affecting event. Example, (Ob) sees an emotionally charged film and after the film feels completely charged with emotions as a consequence of seeing the film. We can say that Observer’s (mp1) has changed to (mp2) following the affecting event (Ev-1) of seeing the film in question.
Time Frame (TF): Every study of the Mind can only be done within the Mathematical Time Frame (MTF) and the Mental Time Frame (MTF). The difference between the two is that (MTF) is the measured time using clocks, whilst (MTF) is what the Observer ‘feels’ time felt to be for him.

Now, we can say that the definition of the Mind of a person in question is the sum total of mental interactions or transactions within the studied Time Frame (TF); or:

(x?+/?- ? {Ev ?+ Em + Sn + Sc + t + Od + ? +? o}) TF)

In other words, the mind of the person in question, (x), depending on the (?+/?-) degrees, can be defined by seeing the sum total of the Constituents of the Mind (CoM) within the studied time frame (TF).

Only within the noted (TF), we can get a ‘picture’ or ‘definition’ of what the structure is for the mind of person (x).
