Been struggling with this set of 5 distinct ideas I presented to chatGPT4 that it put into cognitive frameworks and wouldn’t budge from that. But when I asked for concrete examples, then I could see better how ‘it’ saw their connections.
“Absolutely, here are some concrete examples for each of these:
1. Developmental Systems Foundation (Dev-Sys Fnd): Kenneth’s interest in logic puzzles as a child might have contributed to his development of systems thinking. As he grew older, he might have applied this ability to understand complex systems in various contexts, from understanding social dynamics to learning about the interconnectedness of environmental systems.
2. Concept Lifespan Theory: Kenneth might come across a new idea, say a novel philosophical theory. This concept is in its “birth” stage for Kenneth. He explores it, reads about it, discusses it with others, moving it to the “growth” stage. Over time, as he integrates it into his worldview, it reaches “maturity”. Eventually, he might encounter new information that challenges this theory, leading it into a “decline” stage, which could eventually lead to its “death”, or it might be transformed and reborn in a new form.
3. Aesthetic-Existential Interface: Kenneth’s preference for complexity and systems could be reflected in his aesthetic tastes. He might enjoy art that depicts complex, interconnected systems, or music that has layered melodies and harmonies. His existential journey, grappling with questions about the meaning of life, purpose, and existence, could also influence his interactions with these art forms.
4. Spatial-Temporal Perception Model: When solving a complex problem, Kenneth might perceive different solutions as existing in parallel “spaces”, representing different approaches to the problem (spatial perception). He might also perceive the process of solving the problem as a sequence of steps that occur over time (temporal perception).
5. Fore-Mid-Background Layers: When Kenneth learns a new skill, the “foreground” might be the active process of practicing the skill. The “mid-ground” could be the cognitive processes that connect this practice with his existing knowledge and skills. The “background” would be his underlying cognitive structures that provide the foundation for this learning, such as his memory, attention, and problem-solving abilities.
I hope this helps clarify these frameworks with more concrete examples.
