l.r. All of which, let me repeat, works automatically, as experience and experiments abundantly show. Thus, an analysis of the mechanism of time-binding depends on the discovery of a sharp non-el difference between 'Fido' and 'Smith', and the formulation of means to make the time-binding characteristics of man fully effective with all except heavily pathological individuals.
By abolishing identification we generalize differentiation and so impart consciousness of abstracting, an indispensable factor in proper evaluation, and an absolute condition for adaptive and so survival behaviour. Thus a-system becomes a general theory of sanity and the general theory of time-binding, from which general semantics follow.
5)   One of the most important features of the present -system consists of its non-el structural character. We may analyse problems in a scientific 'intellectual' way; yet this analysis, because non-el, structural, and semantic, appeals to, and affects, our 'feelings', 'intuitions'., involving psychophysiological factors based on order. Thus, the structurally necessary translations of one level of abstractions into the others and vice versa, is enormously facilitated, while in el systems these translations were hampered by unavoidable semantic blockages. Accordingly, 'intellect', 'emotions', 'body', and 'mind'., are not divided. The organism is affected as-a-whole, because structurally correct non-el means are employed, making many benefits of the system accessible to children, morons, and, perhaps, even superior idiots. The last results are to be foreseen, although they have not, as yet, been verified empirically.
6)   But the most workable feature of the system consists in the fact that, being based on such fundamental principles as non-identification, non-elementalism., it has an organic unity. The main issues are all strictly interrelated and apply to 'body', 'mind', 'emotions'., in a non-el way, all working automatically, no matter from what angle we approach the training.
Thus, if we start with order, we are led to relations and structure; these establish differentiation and stratification, eliminating identification and 'allness', which result in consciousness of abstracting, necessitating oo-valued general semantics, indispensable to proper evaluation and adjustment. If we start with non-identity, we are led to order, relations, structure, differentiation, stratification, non-allness, consciousness of abstracting, oo-valued semantics, proper evaluation, and adjustment. If we start with differentiation or stratification, we are led to order, relations, structure, non-identification, non-allness, consciousness of abstracting, and proper evaluation.
