First off, great work, Steve! Best article yet.
sri, as for the formation of new invariant reps, I like William James' "How an Individual Settles Into a New Opinion
". You'll see how it fits with the concept of invariant representations.
I've been researching a book on this topic for some time, and agree with every word in the article. There's loads of philosophy, psychology, and brain science that all says the same thing. Steve didn't touch on the rComplex
and the interplay between the parts of the triune brain, but the role of invariant representations cannot be understated.
