Concretes & Relational Patterns

The Pre-Thought Universe consists of the Concrete + the Relational Patterns defined and determined by the Concrete.

ACTORS are able to use actions (concretes determined by certain relational patterns) to rearrange the Concrete to reflect new Relational Patterns. However, all Actors and actions are themselves determined by other Concretes and Relational Patterns.

THINKERS (specific instantiations of the Concrete in and determined by specific Relational Patterns) are capable of creating new hypothetical free-standing Relational Patterns that do not refer to Concretes (Material Objects) but rather to Abstracts (Thought Objects).

Thinkers are also able to deduce and describe the Relational Patterns that do refer to and are determined by the arrangement of the Concrete in the universe.

THINKER-ACTORS can rearrange the Concrete to reflect or approximate one of these Hypothetical Relational Patterns that the thinker-actor created through the creation and arrangement  of Abstracts.
