Third Generation Gravesians

The Wisdom of Prof. Clare W. Graves (1914-1986), Applied

SDi reminds us that context, Life Conditions, impact the nature of cognition.   When I wrote the following I still had access to the Purple oriented cognition that being immersed in South Indian culture fostered in me.  Now, years later, this story surprises me.  I can't fully reenact the cognition that made this story seem totally real to me at that time.  This is how cognition works.  When in one frame of mind, other frames of mind appear as if in error some how.   This is what the mind does.  It makes our present state of cognition right, proper, correct, and others the opposite.  But for people with those other frameworks, mine will look just as wrong.  A mind with the Yellow vMeme active will NOT be dominated by this cognitive mechanism.  All perspectives will be seen as having value in their specific context.   This is Multi-Perspectival Cognition in action.
