A book that goes beyond speculation and hypotheses about the mind and presents for the first time a clear layout of the organization and operation of thought processes. This book finally takes the mind out of the black box and sheds light on a stunning array of mental phenomena including mental disorders and paranormal behavior. An easy-to-follow exposition despite the complexity of the subject.

This is not your usual speculative book about the mind with cryptic language that only the initiated few may understand. The author uses clear concepts and simple language with no scary idioms to delve into the organization and dynamics of thought processes from an overarching unified model. Whether you happen to be a learned psychologist looking for granular interpretation of human thoughts and emotions with their correlated processes, or a neuroscience researcher or developer seeking better clues and deeper insights in mentation, or simply a parent dealing with the disparaging commotion of a mentally-ill relative, this book proposes sensible and satisfying answers never before available.

As elusive and obscure as matters of mind may appear, this exposé eloquently shows that they remain completely ruled by rationalism and notably mathematical formalism. The author’s vintage is a model built on a parent function to the well-known Gaussian with the help of novel philosophical principles and physics constructs both directly emanating from the function. From that standpoint, the author forcefully endeavors to take the architecture and operation of mind out of the black box, shedding light on a stunningly large array of mental phenomena, from human character to mental disorders to paranormal behavior.

To the laymen with interest in the subject: this text, indeed an easy-to-follow exposition, will help you better understand the partitioning and inner workings of your own thoughts and emotions and their process flows as well. Most interestingly, it firmly establishes the basis for individual character giving you the means to predict or cope with reactions and behavior coming from mates, friends and co-workers. A fascinating book!

*1.1 Cognitive Science Before Quanto-Geometry *

The prime **objective of this study is to firmly establish the structural and functional bases of the human mind. It wholly integrates the majority of well-known facts in cognitive science, psychology and psychiatry concerning the human mind. The decade of the 1990’s had been officially declared the decade of the brain. Nevertheless many still today consider cognitive (thought) processes to be inherently unyielding to intellectual grasp. Their argument: since cognitive processes result from brain activity, which is a product of evolution, they must be subject to the cognitive limitations in course of the brain. The presumed current limitations of the brain would preclude it from acquiring knowledge of itself, that is of its complex processes. Most brain research scientists are firmly convinced for themselves that human thought processes do take place within the biological brain. Others, however, have suggested that the capabilities of brain neurons altogether are far too insufficient to handle the amazing complexity of the human mind. They have gained little more than hand waving in the scientific community, to say the least. Such a hypothesis apparently withdraws the matter from science and turns it back to philosophy and metaphysics. In the meantime, under all latitudes, more and more individuals are looking for answers, without much embarrassment, from astrologers and the like, no matter how ambiguous their science. Horoscopes have unquestionably grown in popularity like never before thanks to the internet. Would astrology hold at least part of the truth? **

In fact, the most difficult problem that all disciplines addressing human complex processes must face, be they scientific, philosophical or metaphysical, is one model of organization and operation of the mind. Stephen Hawkins has very justly explained the role of models in science. The process of comprehension is a vision from a specific perspective, akin to our sense of sight. Comprehension is a process whereby we shed light on and receive light from an unknown matter. At such effect, we need one point of sight or one perspective. This perspective is a model. Whether or not the object under scrutiny is the mind itself makes not much of a difference, since the model provides by itself the required distance between the subject and the object by establishing a separate point of sight, a perspective that is.

We intend to develop this study in the light of the Quanto-Geometric model. Quanto-Geometry is a new all-things perspective, built upon a parent function of the well-known Gaussian. Quanto-Geometry is an integrative philosophical and mathematical model able to scrutinize all forms of expression of matter, from sub-atomic particles to development of species to behavior of cosmic bodies. While some of our readers would surely appreciate an in-depth mathematical presentation of the model, other more modest readers may prefer to do without it. Consequently, we propose in the following a primer to the Quanto-Geometric theory. Our intention, in any case, is to make this introduction graphical enough to be comprehensive to all audiences.

*1.2 Properties and Faculties of Space and Mass *

Most of us will agree that the two prime components that make up all objects in the universe are mass and space. Each can only be defined in opposition to the other, however. There is no prior principle from which a definition of mass or space individually can be derived. From our standpoint, they are prime values non-deductible from any previous form of reality. Furthermore, they strictly and exclusively relate to each other. Nothing else can affect space and mass, from nowhere do they come. Mass, call it a thing, and space, call it nothingness, are the basis of all forms of objects as well as events in our reality.

How about time? Two important things we know about time. We know that in the microscopic universe which spans from particles to molecules there is no time. This is the cornerstone of quantum mechanics, a science that has made possible the information age. We also know that in the macroscopic world, that is all things from biological virii to protozoa to galaxies and beyond, there is no absolute scale of time. Time does not flow at the same rate everywhere, nor is it independent from your travel speed as an observer, even if the value of that speed is zero. This consequence of Special Relativity has allowed us to successfully synchronize around the globe the most complex navigational system that no other civilization known to us has ever achieved. Thanks to the relativistic correction of time lapses, the world’s aerospace control system helps keep safely in the air and on ground hundreds of thousands of traveling planes. To the end, if time is not absolute, is there any time at all? Einstein has proven that our intuitive concept of time is wrong. He then ingenuously followed suit with a visualization of spacetime, entangling time to space. In Quanto-Geometry, however, there is no time anywhere but space everywhere.

Time is a model that we use in common sense in order to account for motion and change, for we cannot figure them out otherwise. Time indeed is not a physical reality. From the quanto-geometric perspective, there are instead ways that things exist and ways in which they behave. These ways of organization and expression of matter are specific. Let us first take a look at how we formally express the relationship between space and mass, the two prime factors that make up every microscopic and macroscopic object.

The Quanto-Geometric function reads as follows:

In this expression, s stands for the space variable, and σ for the standard deviation (a factor that describes the degree of inflexion of the graph). Q(s) is of course the quanto-geometric function itself, that is specifically the measure of how the quantum changes in response to a change of the variable s. Designate it by q, if you will, in the same way we usually designate f(x) by y. In fact, the quanto-geometric function is a function of two variables. However, since both variables behave exactly alike, we have chosen to firstly express the function of one variable. This function is closely related to the Gaussian. As required by the term in absolute value, the graph of the function spans across both the positive and the negative sides of the vertical axis, which is the quantum axis (Fig.1.1). The horizontal axis is the space axis (the ordinary x-axis or t-axis). Also notice the term s⁰ in the numerator. Because 0⁰ is undefined, the whole function is thus indeterminate when s = 0. Hence, strictly speaking, Q(s) is not a function. In the following expression, Q(s) lends itself better to mathematical treatment:

The familiar Gaussian is even more apparent in this expression. However, because of the discontinuity at s = 0, this function cannot be normalized as the conventional Gaussian. In considering how this function gathers the philosophical concepts set forth earlier, we may notice that the discontinuity accounts for the postulate that no absolute mass exists in the universe. In other words, there is no mass in existence without space coupling. No matter how discrete we can think of the mass of a body, it is always coupled to some infinitesimal space field. The asymptotic behavior of the function as *s *approaches infinity accounts for non-existence of pure space in the universe. No matter how intangible a space field appears to be, there is always some infinitesimal degree of quantum coupling of the field.

**Fig. 1.1 **The quanto-geometric function of one variable.

Also notice that at the highest value of q, the quantum approximates our concept of mass. Only an approximation of pure mass can come into existence as a singularity. The quantum concept is indeed a generalization from which mass can be deduced as a particular case. The inverse is not true. For that matter, we appropriately designate the vertical axis, a quantum axis. The quanto-geometric function is the highest descriptive framework for all objects and events in the universe.

*1.3 Time vs. Space *

The variable of the quanto-geometric function is space, not time which we forever dismiss. We historically invented time solely for the sake of accounting for motion, change, variation or transition of any form of event and/or object in the macroscopic universe. Common sense renders space as a state of nothingness which we visualize as static, if any property. However, space is indeed a propagation field that can be graded. Primarily, because of the intrinsic motility of space, there is no qualitative difference between the so-called objects and the so-called phenomena. Ultimately, because all objects are composite objects, we can always visualize any one of them as a sum of phenomena. The only unique object in the physical universe is the universe itself, for the bulk of the evidence suggests that it is adiabatic. On the other hand, the search for the ultimate particles had first landed on the atoms, then shortly after their discovery the protons were elected as the prime particles, now the quarks... what next? Consequently, all comprehensive description of objects or phenomena must account for particular ways or patterns in which these objects exist or behave. The description then essentially becomes a geometric description. In higher mathematics, a description of sorts is achieved through the use of operators, akin to the Hamiltonian operator which Erwin Schroëdinger put to use to describe atomic quantum states. All objects being made up of quanta and space, quanto-geometry poses a set of prime types of quantum-space articulation. These are the very basis of all modalities in which objects and phenomena respectively behave and exist in the physical universe. We do not arbitrarily dictate this set of quantum-space articulation. It naturally results from the normalization of the quanto-geometric function.

*1.4 Quanto-Geometric Articulation *

In itself, the quanto-geometric function stands for the primary level of articulation between the quantum factor (the dependent variable of the function or simply the function) and the space factor (the independent variable or simply the variable).

**Fig. 1.2 **The varying slope of the tangent line to the graph of the quanto-geometric function.

The differential relationship between both factors expresses a second level of articulation. To the end, a derivative is nothing else than a second layer of relationship between a function and its variable. We know from differential calculus that the slope of a tangent line to the graph of a function stands for the rate of change or derivative dq/ds of that function at the tangential point. From the summit of our graph to the standard deviation point, the tangent line remains external to the curve (Fig. 1.2). As the function decreases, the tangent line becomes internal to the curve until it fuses with the asymptote. The rate of change *dq/ds *thus divides the function into two distinct zones.

By constructing two lines each parallel to the positive s-axis and the positive q-axis respectively, we form together with the tangent line a right triangle. The slope of the tangent line is equal to the tangent of the angle q.

From the summit of the curve to the standard deviation point, we may express the derivative as follows:

where *a *is larger than 1. Consequently, in this region the quantum differential is larger than the space differential. In order words, for a small change in space there is a larger change in the quantum. This translates into an obliteration of the quantum by space, the quantum compresses its space partner. Within the articulation, the quantum is thus dominant.

**Fig. 1.3 **The instantaneous rate of change as a differential relationship between the function and its variable.

Let us now proceed in reverse by sliding our tangent line from the asymptotic (infinite) region of the graph upward. There is an extended region spanning from infinity upward where the differential relationship reads as follows:

where *b *is less than 1. Consequently, ds is larger than dq: for a small change in q there is a larger change in s. This signifies that space now jugulates the quantum. Physically, it means that the quantum becomes unapparent and submits itself totally to the degree of mobility of its space partner.

Between the both of the aforementioned regions, there is an intermediate point where the differential dq equates the differential ds. The slope of the tangent line at this point is equal to 1, for the angle q equals 45°.

If we were to study the quantum-space relationship at this point on a third layer, we would consider the second derivative of the function. The second-order derivative at this very particular point is null:

As we know from differential calculus, this is the condition for an inflexion point. Furthermore, this point is the standard deviation point, that is the point where s = s. In proper notation, the differential at this point reads like this:

The above development is seeking to formulate mathematically our philosophical premises. Undoubtedly, any concept that lends itself to proper mathematical formulation transcends speculation. This is not to say that a complete understanding of the above is an absolute condition to an understanding of this thesis. On the other hand, if you are familiar with the Gaussian as well as differential calculus, consider that calculus is indeed geometrical analysis, for it is in many regards an implicit study of curvatures. As to the Gaussian, when re-dimensioned, it comes to embody unsuspected philosophical principles that turn it into a powerful modeling instrument. Not in vain is it so widespread in science.

In the framework of our *Q(s) *function, we can readily visualize three fundamental states of quanto-geometric articulation. Further scrutiny of the curvature of the function tells us, however, that these states include 9 different forms of articulation. Each responds to a particular form of curvature pertaining to the geometry of the function. The following points delimit the intervals which exhibit these fractional forms of curvature:

**Fig. 1.4 **Delimitation and typification of intrinsic intervals of the quanto-geometric function.

Within the interval ]s1, s2[, the curvature of the function is circular (Fig. 1.4B). The interval [s2, s3[ displays a typically elliptic curvature. The interval [s3, s4[ encloses a typically parabolic curvature. The type of curvature proper to the interval [s4, s5[ is hyperbolic. All of these curvatures correspond to those known as conic sections. We call the curvature enclosed within the interval [s5, s6[ an entropic form of curvature. The curvature delimited by the interval [s6, s7[ we designate an enthalpic curvature. We call the curvature enclosed within the interval [s7, s8[ a paradoxical curvature. That one displayed within the interval [s8, s9[ we designate as a perfect curvature. Finally the curvature enclosed within [s9, µ[ we have chosen to designate as the infinitesimal curvature.

These fractions of curvature define the modes of normalization of the quanto-geometric function. Each area bounded by a specific fraction of curvature, the horizontal line representing the upper q-limit of the interval and the line representing the lower q-limit of the interval, make up altogether one layer of quanto-geometric articulation. Each layer represents a quanto-geometric normal, that is one type, which may be an object type or a pheno-type. It follows that every object or phenomenon in the physical world is quanto-geometrically typed. We have explicitly qualified above the
