The best way to discover the features of a toy is to play around a bit. So lets jump into.
If you learn the concept of „I“ you are probably older than 3 years. You are already aware about a lot of representations in the language they talk around you. Whenever you think later about yourself, your ego, in fact, the possibility to articulate this „me“, you return to this original concept of yourself. Please choose one of these representations for „I“.
Also you have an idea about others. In the first years your one-2-one communication, mostly your mother, was maybe very important. In the moment when you discovered the concept of „I“ all your communication partners shifted from – maybe – a „we“ to induviduals. As much as you felt sure about yourself, about the idea of „me“, you invented a kind of „not me“ for these others. Choose a representation for this concept of „Not me/You“.
I apologise that you are already framed, because your choice was guided. But just follow for this sample. Lets assume, your choice fell on 03090000000000 and 01100000000000.
Focus your choice and and imagine the result of both representations.
In the new representation you might identify all shapes, given by the choise of the two representations before.
Question: What is „me“ + „you“?
A handy answer might be: „We“!
The representation of „we“ under the choice for „me“ and „you“ in this case is 01100309000000.
Question: Is this the only possible representation of „we“ under the condition of your choice?
Not at all. 01100309000000 is one option to arrange the 4 shapes in one space with 7 layers. Here are two other.
Also 03011009000000 or 01031009000000 would be a possible and valid union set. If you combare the three options now, you may tend to one of the new once. This is your choice – and will be ever in Simbola.
Lets dive deeper into your motivation to choose 01031009000000 as a representation of „we“.
You might look for the best representation of the real relation between „me“ and „you“ and maybe actually you have a specific person in mind.
Question: Would you choose different outcomes for the union set of „we“, if you think in your mother, your father, your child, your ant, your neighbour?
Question: Can you derive rules from this example?
Simbola provides filled spaces. The user choose a space, filled with a set of shapes, organized in layers for his subjectiv representation. There is no rule to choose a specific filled space for a representation of an concept like „me“ or „you“ or „we“.
Simbola provides filled spaces with some complexity. In a union set – as an addition – the complexity is increasing.
Simbola offers vectors that move shapes from source layers to target layers in union sets.
