Restating EsSample’s rule of the internal model

How is it that persons interpret and navigate this non-material world? It just seems unlikely that they can achieve this without a persistent value-model that guides if not drives that interpretation and navigation.

Features revealed in even the latest and broadest studies (in science and in social practice) provide peripheral capabilities. To employ them as the only guide or value-model (for interpretation and navigation) would at best make persons reactionary zombies professing emotions that don’t contribute to that interpretation and guidance.

We observe that the detectable interpretation and navigation is persistent and consistent, on the whole. At least as persistent and consistent as the visibile properties of personality that have been analysed.

The logic is that there must be a persistent and consistent unconscious driving model of self, perhaps with the technical and studiable properties that Metzinger attributes to his phenomenal self-model (PSM) and phenomenal model of the intentionality relation (PMIR). Metzinger’s view and approach to his models are passive and descriptive of the sensory half of the self models. It is silent on the driver half of the self model, and refers only briefly to the external models with which the sensory model responds. It’s ok for him to propose that much behaviour is driven by the interplay between these two. But it still leaves much of the internal model undescribed, and the nature of models in general. Well done Metzinger.


Restating EsSample’s driver from this unconscious model

How is it that normals have their level of awareness of self in their modelled world. Self in the sense that self being an anomaly in a world of other beings that the person acts on – as anything between prey and sanctious inviolable silos.

And curiosity about what they do receive from that awareness, and the confidence and method to use it to act on that external world or enrich that internal awareness.

That same modelling that powers actors on pawns in the external world – powering the predators of masses (megalomaniacs), the predators of individuals (psychopaths).

That same modelling that powers the despots over their internal world – those who insist on conformity (to their model) in and from the external world (fanatics), or in individuals (bullies).

In these normals, the internal model applies itself unconditionally on the external world. The conditionality arises only from this inward awareness that has sufficient draw and power to have an internal inspection. The extent of recursion of that inspection & resulting cleanup is another varying property of their mind.


2015-08-31 EsSample from self-learning or training

EsSample practitioning requires either relationship with self (self-learning) or training (EsSample model and practice).

The level achieved depends firstly on either the resulting capability (in self-learning), or the fidelity with which the modelling follows the rules (3d vectoring in trained persons). The more the first, the more a creator. The more the second, the more an operator.

And secondly on the starting point – the disabilities herited from environment and equipment.

EsSample makes no qualitative improvement of human minds having affirmation and discrepancy resolution becoming more contributory and less extractive. It brings light to the process by its model of minds, and will develop metrics to measure it. Its emphasis is firstly to reduce distraction of noise from self to accelerates the process. Secondly to model the end state of absent self (but even this has a dependency on correct modelling of that end state).

Blocking is having no capability, & no instruction.

Sabotaging / derailment has either faulty model or faulty wiring as the cause. Or anything preventing delivering models, relationship with self, onboarding instruction. (The smartest fault, and most challenging problem, is someone pitting their ego against ego-identification – the very process intended to measure it.)

The main pathologies are over or under expression, and divert / subvert responses. These pathologies are the only cause of an outcome from a self not being affirmation and discrepancy resolution. Faulty hardwiring and faulty blank slate models are the cause of these pathologies. Faulty hardwiring is, by definition, the only cause of you not being handed a blank slate to work with. Distinguishing the cause of pathologies being hardwiring and not blank slate modelling, is a significant objective of EsSample practitioners. It’s what psychiatrists almost do now.
