ABSTRACT

Epistemiology requires trans-disciplinary logics for convergence. As a fundamental of the brain, this essay's hypotheses revisit the Goethean alternation between "Newtonian" symbolic frontal 4-dimensional (Halford) processing ("4D-Thought"), and parietal intellectual intuition ("5D+-Action") interpreting high-dimensional articulated motor-chains (Rizzolatti). SuchS a classical temperamental and anxio-affective triad of dimensions ("Thought", "Action", "Mood") constitutes the "dyn4-TAM-cube"-model, reflecting segregated cortico-striato-thalamo-cortical circuits. "dyn4-TAM-cube" harbors cycling "Appropriation Waves" transiting from private "4DThought" to public "5+Action" and back. At "Intention" to act predictive Pavlovian cues, possibly tempting by discounted effort, incentivate, and at "Perception" Skinnerian learning relates "worth"-related outcome to effortful appropriations (see part2). Sorrentino's prime motivating "orientation" when facing the unexplained unknown dictates this balance. Thereby uncertainty- versus certainty-oriented actors ("UOs" vs. "COs") differ inversely and interactively in "Mood": whilst reducing future effortful "known unknowns" by models or by doing. Rats show a arguably homologous sign- versus goal-tracking dimension, as controlled by the thalamic paraventricular nuclei, where mast cells might mediate the reversal in orientation observed in depression. Natural language terms denoting the 8 corners and 56 intercalated processes link "dyn4-TAM-cube" to psychotherapy and to thalamic (neuro-)linguistics, as "dyn4-TAM-cube" via syllogisms of a doubled Square of Oppositions maps language to logical terms, which speak through the former.
