Circadian Rythms and Levels of Consciousness

Coherence in Thought and Action


There are five primary kinds of coherence relevant to assessing rational knowledge:

explanatory, analogical, deductive, perceptual, and conceptual.

Each category of coherence relevant to assessing knowledge involves a set of elements and dipole constraints.

There are important differences between each of these five primary or fundamental coherence relations and the principles associated with them.

These coherence principles are relevant in assessing the complex of concepts people chose to apply to a particular situation to make it comprehensible.


Explanatory coherence is fundamentally a matter of there being a causal relation between what is explained and the representations that do the explaining.

When an explanatory hypothesis explains a piece of evidence as does another explanatory hypothesis then there is coherence to these hypothetical explanations.


Analogical coherence can be understood as multiple constraint satisfaction involving similarity, structure, and purpose within differentiated systems.

An example of analogical coherence is how Charles Darwin used artificial selection, domesticated animal and plant breeding, as an analogy to explain natural selection.

Analogical coherence is absolutely neccessary for comprehension of texts involving metaphor.


Deductive coherence is based on purely deductive relations between propositions.

Deductive coherence looks for a good fit between general propositions or principles and intuitive judgements.


Perceptual coherence involves the assembling of a perceptual knowledge in a 'snapshot' of the existant environment.

Perceptual knowledge includes visual, auditory, olfactory, and tactile representations of what we see, hear, smell, taste, and feel.

No 'sensation' is simply a matter of taking sensory inputs and interpreting them directly as sensory inputs are often incomplete or ambiguous.

Doors of Perception are dependent on sensory focus.

When we focus on one sense the doors of conscious awareness to the other senses close.

Those senses that have been pushed outside conscious awareness, hidden behind the Veil of Cognitive Blindness, now inform only the subconscious.

The conscious mind fills in the blank spaces to create a whole.


Conceptual coherence involves concepts as foundational elements and their relationship to one another.

There is abundant experimental and computational evidence that concepts are a psychologically realistic category of mental representation not reducible to propositions.

Association of concepts can be understood in terms of social stereotypes.

Many psychological phenomena concerning how humans apply stereotypes can be explained in terms of conceptual-constraint satisfaction.

If I am told that someone is a California Polytechnical State University educated carpenter, it may be difficult to reconcile the conflicting expectations associated with the two concepts.

Surprise is an emotional reaction that signals that a satisfactory degree of coherence has not been achieved.

Generation of new elements is sometimes driven by incoherence.

For example, I am trying to understand someone but fail to form a coherent impression or attribution, I may be spurred to form new conceptual elements that can add coherence to the old set of elements. This reaction triggers hypothesis formation, as I ask myself how someone with a California Polytechnical State University Bachelor of Architecture degree could end up working as a carpenter.

Explanatory, analogical, deductive, perceptual, and conceptual coherence add up to a comprehensive, computable, naturalistic theory of coherence which explains the thought processes used by humans to assess knowledge.

These five primary kinds of coherence used in a rigorous inferential process will expand individual knowledge and eliminate previous misconceptions.

A sixth category, deliberative coherence, is relevant to decision making and ethics.

Knowledge comes in a Rainbow Spiral of shapes and forms.

left brain - right brain


"Each of us is something of a schizophrenic
personality, tragically divided against ourselves."
Martin Luther King, Jr.



To have a balanced peaceful mind a human must be able to integrate their fundamental subconscious emotional understanding of reality with their rational logical understanding of reality !

To do this in a natural social culture people build simple monolithic conceptual worldview structures in a mythical metaphorical manner to connect the images stored in the subconscious.

To do this in a social culture steeped in paralogisms people must build elaborately fragmented unconnected conceptual structures in that same mythical metaphorical way.

Unfortunately that leaves you with a subconscious that is highly ineffective in alerting the conscious stream of thought to problems in the surrounding environment that would be easily seen by those living in a naturally evolved social culture.

rational consciousness domination



Rational consciousness rests in the frontal lobe.

Damage to the frontal lobes creates a descension in consciousness from rational consciousness to a lower form of mystical consiousness in which rationality is lost on the myst.

For analytical thinkers this descension of consciousness can be terrifying as it is hard to navigate in a blind alley.

Ability to navigate reality breaks down in those who have been overly analytic.

When rational consciousness shuts down sensory perception becomes acute.

Historically the individuals having these experiences have been either considered visionaires or brain addled monsters.

On the edge of rationality next to the dream like state of mythical consciousness lies the Thinspace within which you can find Wonderland.

This website defines a new religious ideology to which its author adheres. The author feels that the falsification of reality outside personal experience has forged a populace unable to discern propaganda from reality and that this has been done purposefully by an international corporate cartel through their agents who wish to foist a corrupt version of reality on the human race. Religious intolerance occurs when any group refuses to tolerate religious practices, religious beliefs or persons due to their religious ideology. This web site marks the founding of the religion aptly named The Truth of the Way of Life - a rational gnostic mystery religion based on reason which requires no leap of faith, accepts no tithes, has no supreme leader, no church buildings and in which each and every individual is encouraged to develop a personal relation with the Creator and Sustainer through the pursuit of the knowledge of reality in the hope of curing the spiritual corruption that has enveloped the human spirit. The tenets of The Truth of the Way of Life are spelled out in detail on this web site by the author. Violent acts against individuals due to their religious beliefs in America is considered a "hate crime."

This web site in no way condones violence. To the contrary the intent here is to reduce the violence that is already occurring due to the international corporate cartels desire to control the human race. The international corporate cartel already controls the world banking system, corporate media worldwide, the global industrial military entertainment complex and is responsible for the collapse of morals, the elevation of self-centered behavior and the destruction of global ecosystems. Civilization is based on cooperation. Cooperation does not occur at the point of a gun.

American social mores and values have declined precipitously over the last century as the corrupt international cartel has garnered more and more power. This power rests in the ability to deceive the populace in general through corporate media by pressing emotional buttons which have been preprogrammed into the population through prior corporate media psychological operations. The results have been the destruction of the family and the destruction of social structures that do not adhere to the corrupt international elites vision of a perfect world. Through distraction and coercion the direction of thought of the bulk of the population has been directed toward solutions proposed by the corrupt international elite that further consolidates their power and which further their purposes.
