From the Book of Changes to the Algebra of Conscience, through technical analysis

In his splendid book on Harmony Mathematics, Alexey Stakhov devotes a section to Vladimir Lefebvre’s mathematical theory of decision and strategic interaction, which, unlike other developments in this area such as the much-hyped game theory, includes an intrinsic behavioral and moral component [62].

Everything starts from the observation that if someone is asked to divide a pile of string beans into two piles of bad and good ones, oddly enough the average result is not 50%-50% as expected, but 62%-38% in favor of those considered good.

According to Lefebvre, what lies at the bottom of this asymmetric perception is a triple gradation of definable logical implications within a binary logic or Boolean algebra:

A [a0consciousness→a1reflection→a2intention]
