Shulman G.A.

Model of Socion

The conceptual possibility of building periodical systems of socion (PSS) on all 840 Reinin bases is demonstrated. Should the dichotomy rationality/irrationality be considered as only conditionally belonging to the basis, then the total number of PSS in first approximation will make 20160. In this case each PSS represents a 'snapshot' or 'horizontal cut' of the Socion. Based on this presumption, the information metabolism type is construed as a probability-based cloud of existence in psycho-informational space. A hypothesis is proposed that, depending on real conditions of existence, a human may migrate towards other Reinin bases and exist in them, remaining in his own socionic type.
Key words: Periodical System of Socion (PSS), Jungian basis, Reinin bases, multitude of PSS, human socionic type (informational metabolism type, IMT), migration of IMT towards other bases, IMT as probability-based cloud of existence in psycho-informational space.
