Synthesis and Antisynthesis of Polarities: Gnoseological Dichotomies
The close connection and parallelism of the basic socionic concepts - the theory of mental information metabolism - with a lot of philosophical categories and systems is shown. The use of quadruple socionic system of knowledge structuring, covering all information aspects, allows to expand and to complete many of these philosophical knowledge systems. The process of ideas evolution in philosophy from antiquity to present days is considered from socionic positions.

On the Problem of Integral Type of Informational Metabolism of Societal Psyche in Non-Occasional Group
A systematic approach towards and modeling of societal psyche in non-occasional groups is considered. It is shown that from an abstract standpoint the structure and mechanism of functioning of societal psyche in non-occasional groups can be rightfully represented with the same models as those for personal psyche. The second part of the article presents an example of an integral type of informational metabolism in nation.

Ethnic communities with an integral aspect of temporal intuition (viewed as a function of dreams and fantasies) encourage spread of consciousness-transforming substances the most Integral type gradation as per perceptibility to drugs is suggested. These conformities, if known, permit one to find new solutions to the problem of society members' drug protection.
Key words: ethnic socionics, integral type, alcohol addiction, drug addiction, mentality, socionics.

A Hypothesis of Coincidence, or Coincidence of Hypotheses (from Practical Socionic Experience)

Aspects, Functions, TIMs, People. Psychological Functions acc. to C.G.Jung in Models of Human Psyche (from Integrity Fragments Cycle)
Merging of a man with reality of the 1st function of its type of informational metabolism (TIM) with subsequent submerging in this reality is postulated. From this standpoint, some well noted behavioural reactions in people belonging to certain TIMs are explained.

Possible and Impossible in Socionics or the Cheshire Cat Smile
It was shown that socionics as a theory of informational metabolism has its own basis on itself and thus it doesn't need to search for the basis in other scientific disciplines. In particular, it doesn't need a theoretic-system ground as well as the theory of the systems can be itself derived from the socionical paradigm. It is settled that a socionical paradigm can take a part of the methodological basis of all the modern science. All the science and the processes in the society can be looked at from the point of view of the socionics, all the psychology can be considered with use of the socionical concepts and terminology. The notion of informational metabolism as well as informational models of different objects' (railroad terminal as a representation of (( type, and army as (( one) functioning are considered.
Key words: socionics, philosophy, type of informational metabolism, socionical paradigm, information, theory of systems, psychology.
PHYSICS OF CONSCIOUSNESS
On the Field of Consciousness in a Physical Universe
It is shown that the universal vacuum if viewed as a conglomerate of relativist fields can be perceived as a giant computing system controlling movement of micro-particles and macro bodies (planets, stars, etc.) Alike physical processes run in semiconductor crystals of modern computers used for construction of artificial intelligence systems. As an analogue of macro-computer, the Universe in total inevitably possesses attributes of consciousness and intelligence, its apart subsystems inter-relating with human consciousness and finding their interpretation within the framework of religious systems and beliefs.
Key words: consciousness, physical vacuum, computer, computations, religion.
PROBLEMS OF SOCIONIC EDUCATION
Myself and Surrounding World
Last year our journal (No.2, 1998) presented a socionic training programme developed by pedagogue and researcher of the International Socionics Institute L.V.Oleynik. The research work by Inna Nosach that is offered to readers for consideration is a continuation of a set of socionic training materials. This research work represents a standard homework assignment for L.V.Oleynik's disciples and can serve as a perfect illustration of results of socionic basics studies in secondary school and college.
Key words: socionics, study.
