“SOBMER” PROCESS

An acronym for Source, Origin, Beginning, Middle, End, and Result.

ABSTRACT

ABSTRACT: "Metaphysical Notions" are meanings given to the Un-seeable about which a notion can be formed but having no relation to matter and no location in time and space. A Metaphysical Non-Notion deals with an arbitrary symbolic figure to characterize a specific abstract Referent (about which no notion can be formed).

ABSTRACT REASONING/LEARNING

ABSTRACT REASONING/LEARNING: Mental activities concerning qualities (bodiless presence) or imageless spiritual things often in the form of symbols so as to reach conclusions above the concrete.

ABSTRACT THINKING

ABSTRACT THINKING: Mental manipulations of Principles or Symbols

ABSTRACT/ABSTRACTION SET

ABSTRACT/ABSTRACTION SET: The tendency to perceive things in terms of abstracts or abstractions respectively.

ABSTRACTION

ABSTRACTION: The Un-seeable extracted from the Seeable.

ABSTRACTION ATTITUDE

ABSTRACTION ATTITUDE: One assumes a mental set voluntarily; shifts from one aspect of a situation to another (e.g. from the concrete to the abstracted and back again as demanded by the circumstances) while simultaneously holding in the mind various aspects of a situation; grasps the essentials of a whole into its parts, and isolating them; planning ahead ideationally; assuming an attitude to the merely possible; and thinking or performing symbolically. All this is done voluntarily.

ABSTRACTION REASONING

ABSTRACTION REASONING: Mental activities concerning abstracted qualities from physical things to reach conclusions which exclude the concrete.

AFFECT SYMBOLIC IMAGERY

AFFECT SYMBOLIC IMAGERY: Emotionally based thinking in mental pictures or in mental imagery patterns (of the concrete and/or the particular) which touch ones emotions or perhaps ones feelings. It is not backed by reason or evidence.

AFRICAN LOGIC

AFRICAN LOGIC (African Dialectic): uses reasoning from Truth or Circumstantial Truths for the main purpose of arriving at inferences designed to reveal “Esoteric Knowledge”.  For African Sages it is a logical conclusion toward which their thousands of years of accumulated data, showing correspondence, pointed.

CONCRETE

CONCRETE: Entities called Concrete denote objects consisting of a whole complex of attributes standing in various relations. Objects have location in time and space. Something is concrete if it is particular, specific, actual, palpable, or capable of being experienced.

GENERAL

Something applying to a number of things (all, some, a few) rather than to particular, or specific, cases.

GENERAL ABSTRACTIONS

Whereas the term "General Abstract" refers to anything in the Metaphysical, the word "General Abstraction" refers to non-objects in the Material World (see Table XIII). After the mental "Abstraction" of perceiving a common quality(s) in different material things (e.g. the four legs in my dog Sandy and neighborhood dogs), one can form a general idea (e.g. a generic Dog). While "Whiteness" in my dog Sandy is a Simple Abstraction, to refer to "whiteness" by itself without relating it to Sandy, horses, or houses is to advance into the General Abstraction realm of the Material World. The "General" leaves out the many other different objects exemplifying whiteness.

GLOB

An undifferentiated sticky interweave of Thoughts and Ideas.

HOMEOSTASIS

Natural movement toward equilibrium and away from change.

HYPOTHESIS

The forming of a conceivable general principle assumed as a “possible explanation” of a set or class of facts.

This is justified from one having studied a sufficient number of dogs to make conclusions about all dogs.

IDEAS

An Idea is a patterned quantity of energy inside which is a mental picture with a meaning signifying and symbolizing something to enable it to be put into words.

MENTAL MANEUVERING/MANIPULATION

Manipulating and maneuvering of information is what is done to find an unknown, as in algebra. Resultant ideas and concepts stemming from new combinations, new arrangements, and new forms allow for more flexibility in seeing interrelationships of seemingly unlike things. Those relationships lead to understanding within the process of organizing thoughts (see Table XIII) which, in turn, leads to conclusions.

PRINCIPLES

Knowledge reduced to its lowest level as unchanging realities.

PROVERBS

Phrases of the people's common sense pertaining to thoughts, feelings, acceptable expressions, or behavior presented as symbols.

QUALITY

Quality is a master category word or what I call an "Umbrella Term". Qualities have a "bodiless presence," meaning a thing without form or shape and having nothing to do with any particular object. Though not objectively measured like Quantities, Qualities are estimated and graded as mild, slight, moderate, or extreme (severe). In this way Qualities can be assessed in a mathematical manner to give calculated guesses.

SPECIFIC OR PARTICULAR OBJECTS

The Concrete concerns Objects or what is made of physical material, like Sandy, my dog. A Specific orParticular" thing is Sandy as a single concrete object. General Abstraction thinking at a physical ("Dog") or an Abstract Metaphysical (gods) level is higher than Concrete thinking but usually lacks the Emotional Energy associated with Concrete thinking (e.g. my feelings for Sandy).

SUMMARIES

An Abstracted Summary is a smaller quantity of information containing the essence or power or virtue of the greater; a skeletal statement of the contents of the article; the main points of the original spoken or written words or experiences in the order of their first appearance.

For a Thought to occur means the putting together of two ideas, like "Titan is good." "Titan" and "Good" thereby form a relation. Ideas come from Notions which, in turn, come from an individual's senses (Percepts) and/or from remembering. Thinking is putting together these things.

THRIVING

Prospering by industry, economy, efficiency, and effectiveness in daily living.

UMBRELLA TERM

A term used to designate a category containing ideas having application on more than one Cosmic plane of existence. Hence, in the way many different chicks hide under the wings of their mother, different concepts (each being dealt with uniquely) stand under a given term (e.g. success). In short, it cannot be defined because its ramifications are so varied.
