Simple Harmonic Motion (SHM)
The simple back and forth oscillation of a pendulum
Conflict Resolution Process (CRP)
The periodic repetition of a three-cycle, six-role sequence of transactions occurring in each of the five generations of the Greek cosmogony: Stress, Response, Anxiety, Defense, Reversal and Compromise.
View Detailed Description of the Conflict Resolution Process
Level 1:
Formal Analysis
Logic: Laws of Relational Logic
Group Theory of Mathematics: Law of Inverse

In every mathematical group, for every element, there is an inverse element, which, combined with the first, yields the identity element.

Under the operation of addition, the inverse elements are opposite: a + (-a) = 0

Under the operation of multiplication, the inverse elements are reciprocal: a x 1/a = 1

Inverse Constructs:
Opposites ae distinguished by rotational differences (clockwise vs. counterclockwise), but are located in the same portion of the circle.

Reciprocals share the same rotational direction but are distinguished by locational differences (top vs. bottom/left vs. right)


Opposite Constructs:
cooperative (marked as positive) vs. antagonistic (marked as negative)

Reciprocal Constructs:
Direction for the scoring of antagonism (-) vs. cooperation (+), passivity (1/S) vs. activity (S)


Level 2:
Variables Analysis

Variables of the SHM

The Simple Harmonic Motion is conceptualized as a function of the following symbolically identified variables:
Displacement = S
Maximum Displacement = A (amplitude of the oscillation)
Velocity = v
Acceleration = a
Force = F
 gravity = g
Mass = m
Energy = E

The 6-role sequence is conceptualized as a function of the following behavioral variables equivalent to physics:
Normative Deviation =
Status Differential=S
(-S status of aggression; -1/S status of being a victim of aggression)

Social Conduct = v
(-v murdering; -1/v being murdered)

Motivational Force = a
(-a wishing to murder; -1/a fear of being murdered)

Dependency Needs = g

Involvement = m

Conflict = Energy = E

Level 3:
Energetic Induction Analysis

Lenz's Law
Principle of induction of energy

E = F x S =(m1m2/ I2) x S

The energy of an oscillating pendulum is equal to the product of the ball's gravity (wieght) times the ball's displacement from the position of equilibrium.

Energy = Force x Displacement

The energy of a harmonically evolving person is equal to the product of his/her dependency needs and displacement from the point of rest.

Conflict = Dependency Needs x Normative Deviation

Level 4:
Energetic Conservation Analysis

Law of the conservation of energy:  Energy can neither be created nor destroyed, only transformed

Etot = E1 + E2 +E3

The energy of an oscillating pendulum is constant and equal to the sum of the kinetic, potential and momentum energies as registered at any given instant. The sum ideally is equivalent to the intial energy imparted to the system.

Etot = Ekinetic + Epotential +Emomentum

For any individual in conflict at every instant the sum of social energies (action and speech), psychic energies (feelings and thoughts), and biological energies (drives and impulses) is constant and equal to the energy imparted to the individual upon inception of the conflict.

Etotal = Esocial + Epsychic + Ebiological

Level 5:
Conflict or Motivational Analysis

F = a = -KS

SHM is the type of vibratory motion in which the acceleration, a, is proportional and opposite to the displacement, S. Acceleration, a, is always directed towards the rest position.

Acceleration =
-K x displacement

The Conflict Resolution Process is the type of periodic occurrence in which the emotional motivational driving force, a, is proportional to the normative deviation and always directed towards the rest state.

Motivational Force =
-K x Normative Deviation

Level 6:
Syndromal Analysis

S = Asin0
a = -ac sin0
v = vc cos0
The displacement S, the velocity, v, and acceleration, a, are phase related trigonometric functions.

Displacement = Function(+sin0)
a = Function(-sin0)
v = Function(cos0)

The behavioral totality is a syndrome whose variables, S, v, and a, are correlated as the following trigonometric functions:

Normative Deviations are a Function(+sin0)
Emotions are a Function(-sin0)
Behaviors are a Function(cos0)

Level 7:
Graphic Analysis
Graphic Illustration of trigonometric variables as a function of time
Level 8:
Relational Modality Analysis

Direction of a disturbance within the equilibrial space identified by the 4 inverse alternatives, relational or cardinal references.

1. Direction of circular velocity, w

2. Direction of the oscillation toward a pole of the field.

1. Direction of circular velocity
cooperation (clockwise)
anti-cooperation (counterclockwise)

2. Direction toward a pole of dominance or subordinancy.

Level 9:
Quantitative Analysis
The measurement of variables through standardized units of measurement.

Standardized units of reference

Quantitative determination of the variables through the use of
metric measuring units

i.e., the metric system

Determination of variables through standardized projective and inventory psychological instruments.

i.e., normative systems calibrated through the Conflict Analysis Battery.

Level 10:
Efficiency Health or Ethical Analysis

n = work useful/work provided
Efficiency is equal to the fraction of useful work over total work provided to a system.

n = Euseful /Etotal

Motion finite: Friction0

n < 1
Motion short lived:
Friction high

n = 1
Perpetual motion:
Friction = 0

Efficiency determines the usefulness of a machine as a transformer of energy.

Efficiency = Euseful /Etotal

Friction   coop   conflict

Friction   antag   conflict

Effectiveness is defined as the individual capacity to transform stress into insight. Health is defined as the optimal structuring of relationships to maximize effectiveness.

Effectiveness = Einsight/ Estress
