The Constituents Of The Mind Within The Framework Of A New Concept: The Fluid Mind Matrix Model (FM3)

Let us take an Observer (Ob), who, for simplicity’s sake, goes through four events, in his mind, within the Time Frame (tf) of 0-20 seconds.
Let us say that the four events that our Observer (Ob) experiences are the following: he sees a table in front of him; he feels an emotion; he remembers a memory and lastly, he thinks of a thought. Again, for simplicity’s sake, let us say that each of these happenings in the mind of our (Ob) are far from being emotional-filled or disturbing. Thus, they are neither (+) not (-) events and we can say they are all neutral (o).
Thus, we can write:

Mt1) ?( x?^(?+) {(?gav?_1^o)+(?Em?_1^(o ))+(m_1^o) +( t_1^o) }) ?tf?^(0-20 secs.).

Again, for simplicity’s sake, let us for now assume, that each event lasts for five seconds.
Now, it can occur, that for any (Ob) the above sequence of events in the mind can occur sequentially in the manner described above.
However, it can also occur, that within the mind of Man, the following can and does so often occur:
A mixture of these events can occur: furthermore, we need to say that these ‘events’ are themselves, blobs of images/emotions/feelings that are indefinable and have no boundaries. They are not cut and dry ‘pieces’ of events. As we have said before, in previous articles, at essence all of these ‘events’ are abstract, voids and unrelatable to the Mind.
Thus, it can occur that they interact with each other, opposing and repelling each other, while at the same time, attracting each other, and from these described interactions, some produce further ‘events’ in the mind, and some do not.
In this circumstance, we can write the situation that exists with the mind of our Observer (Ob) by using a type of matrix. (Hold on to the word ‘type’ for now).

Mt2) [( x^(?+ ){?(gav&Em@m&t)} ?tf?^(0-20 secs.) ) ].

Now the above matrix is not a ‘rigid’ structure, in that the constituents of the mind (CoM) – or, the (gav), (Em), (m) and (t) – remain where they are.
Instead, in the above matrix, we mean that the (CoM) interact with each other and so they are constantly moving and shifting with and against other (CoM). Some of these interactions between the Constituents of the Mind produce results – for example, new emotions, while others, may produce nothing.
[Clearly, using computer graphics, would clarify what we are talking about here].
But we come to a very important question here, given what we have just been talking about: where does Time fit into all this?
Previously we said that the entire interaction event for our Observer lasted for 20 seconds.
But now that we have fluid situation, that may produce other emotions in the mind of (Ob) where does that leave our 20 seconds?
Here we need to go back to previous articles written on the subject of Time in relation to the Mind. The fact is that there are two time frames here: the first, which is our 20 seconds, is the mathematical, scientifically measured Time Frame. The second Time Frame is the time that the Observer ‘feels’ to have passed, and here we enter a realm where no language has any accurate vocabulary to help us with. If the Constituents of the Mind in our example were extremely boring and dull, then it may well be, that our Observer will ‘feel’ time to have lasted much more than 20 seconds. On the other hand, if our (Ob) was not really paying attention, then it may well be that the Time, relative to him and to him alone, may well have passed in a matter of a few seconds. Thus, we see the other Time Frame that can only be felt, or experienced by the individual himself. To differentiate between the two, we can call the first (tf) the scientific time frame or (stf); whilst the second, we can label as, mind time frame, or (mtf).
[The Time issue will be discussed in later articles].
Let us return to our Matrix model of the Constituents of the Mind.
In our example, we used 4 constituents, and of course, in reality, the Mind may have an unlimited number of (CoM) within any Scientific Time Frame (stf). We have said: that these individual (Com) constantly interact with each other.
What do we mean by ‘constantly interact with each other’?
Here we are getting closer to a more accurate vision of the ‘reality’ of the Mind of Man. For, the latter is not a rigid, unchanging, non-interacting entity. It is full of what we have called the Constituents of the Mind (CoM) and it is precisely these unlimited number of (CoM) that interact with each other and thereby create the feeling of consciousness for the person; it is these interactions between the (CoM) that create the feeling of ‘knowing who I am’ in the person in question.
In other words, it is precisely from these interactions of the (CoM) that evolve to ‘create’ the unique Mind of the person in question, within the Scientific Time Frame observed.
It is for this reason that I have chosen to describe the matrix of this particular type as being: a Fluid Mind Matrix Model (FMMM or FM3).
Let us study, in more detail the FM3 as per our Observer (Ob).

Mt3) ( x^(?+) { ?(?Em?_1^(+1)&?Em?_2^(+1)@m_1^(+1)&t_1^(+1) ) } ).

The above gives us more details on what this FM3 is. Thus, our Observer, experiences (?Em?_1^(+1)) which means that he experiences an Emotion (Em) and that that Emotion is of a particular type, and so we signify that by labelling it as being (1). It is a positive Emotion, and so we designate that as being an (Em = +1). Next, Observer also experiences another Emotion. This Emotion is totally different from (Em1) and so, we signify this particular Emotion as being (Em2) and it has the flavour of also being (+1).
It is extremely important to understand that (?Em?_1^(+1)) are in no way the same as ?(Em?_2^(+1)).
Finally, Observer, experiences a pleasant memory ?(m?_1^(+1)) and a pleasant thought – (t_1^(+1)).
Now that we have understood the particular Constituents of the Mind (Com) for our Observer (Com), we need now to stress the most significant and important point here: for all these (CoM) attributes are constantly interacting with each other, and in some instances, they will produce a new constituent of the mind (wether it is positive, negative or negative, need not concern us here) and in other cases of these constant interactions, nothing may be produced.
But that which is important to understand is that the Constituents of the Mind, which are themselves, have an ultimate essence of abstractions, are constantly acting and reacting, joining and repelling each other, with every other Constituent of the Mind, as per the individual that is being studied, and all these interactions produce further Constituents of the Mind (CoM).
Thus, perhaps, we can now get a feeling of the sheer fluidity of the constituents of the Mind of any person. It can be rigid, but, at other times, and in most ‘normal’ times, nothing is rigid, stable, unmoving and unchanging.
That is the importance and significance of the existence of the Fluid Mind Matrix Model of the Mind.
