Sensory-Motive – In biology, afferent and efferent are terms used to distinguish the nerves which receive sensory input from the motor neurons which effect a response from muscle cells. The human brain stem, likewise, has an upper and lower region. When the former is damaged, it produces a vegetative coma state (no sense). When the lower region is damaged, it produces paralysis of the body but no interruption to consciousness. Seeing this part of a universal pattern, sensory-motive phenomena is proposed as the most local description of sense. There are many morphological analogs within biology – head and tail, flower and stem, tree and trunk, etc as well as elementary particle analogs of charge and spin. Because animals are convoluted on many levels between the elementary and the zoological scales, we can distinguish between inner control of attention (motive effect) and outer influence over the body in the public world of bodies (motor effect).

    Cool map. I don’t pretend to understand the bulk of it, but it seems you’ve put a lot of thought into it, and it’s certainly interesting. (I’ve also made a lot of the same connections, albeit not so distinctly, when I’ve tried to think about our identity, will, and consciousness, and how they fit into the world and let us interact)

    I’ll be slowly looking more into your theory over the upcoming months/years, as I’ve been impressed with your understanding and clarity in some areas on Quora, and would like to see someone else’s understanding of base/individually-centered metaphysics at a detailed level.

    I’d look more into it now, but there’s just so much it’s overwhelming! You should consider making an interactive “map” of your ideas, so a person can get the overall concept and then just zoom in to parts when they need more detail in something.

      Thanks Stephen. Yes, I agree I need to do something with all of this stuff to make it more browseable at least, and that’s a good suggestion to make it more of a map. My web skills are too ancient to really do that myself these days but maybe I can figure out how to gradually improve it or something.
