Within and Between Humans
Much like the concept of consciousness, and the scientific models or philosophical, ontological questions that challenge whether "something" or "someone" is conscious due to possession of consciousness or the display of consciousness, the truth behind the concept of "something" or "someone" needs to be deciphered. Employing models of the natural world, formulating laws of nature around objective nondisprovable criteria that capture its surface and substrata attributes, and reasoning from first-principle perspectives to lay the groundwork to philosophical platforms that accurately and objectively capture the complexities of behavioral phenomena must include their complexities and substrate "actions."
The pursuit of either may afford neither comforting intellectual notions nor a psychological "safe space," as the emergent qualities of the universe that interface with the embedded human agent (or the computationally bound human being) may prove to be more concretely anchored than not. Whether considering current understanding of or future discoveries about the naturalistic, mechanisms, or the psychological inertia of consciousness—or the truths of the human experience—the issues that stem from the nonconscious or unconscious (or subconscious) predictive governances are produced by underlying early-stage evolutionary neurological or animalistic development of the human brain working within the modern human cortex and the resulting inferential, interpretive, perceptual interface that the modern human experiences cognitively, psychologically, societally, and politically as "reality."
Nonetheless, as with all other human endeavors, and to advance the species philosophically and psychologically—and technologically—along an upward, more upright trajectory, we must proceed beyond intellectual and emotional constraints.
However, this demands a teleological narrative, an individual-based, collective-inspired worldview. Human biases must be mitigated (to highest degree possible) and such a narrative must be directed not only at scientific or technological advancement, or at human activism or humanist progress, but at a new metaphorical understanding of and semantic associational value for what human unity, "oneness," or "singularity" could be. It must span the various bandwidths of information-processing channels and the levels of discourse on which information is shared, which, in any context, will require harnessing the innate intelligence of the human, or the error-correction functionality within and between humans—or by human-developed tools for existing and future humans—oriented toward a "knowledge" or truth of what prevents unity within and between humans and a resulting entropic (behavioral and energetic), psychological (unconscious, subconscious, or conscious cognition), or psychotechnical (artificial intelligence) tool for building a conscientiousness toward human unity, oneness, or a singularity.
This refinement—and extension—of the original foundational framework and philosophical literature of the Philosophy of One Divide and its theory of Emotional Warfare is aimed precisely at this.
The One Divide Platform
Philosophy — Psychology — Artificial Intelligence [AI]
This content has been provided to reflect and bring to the reader's attention the most recent advancements and continued research and development conducted in the pursuit of extending the One Divide Platform — and to capture the ongoing refinements extending the platform from the established domains of One Divide philosophy and One Divide psychology to the field of artificial intelligence (AI) and, even more broadly from a long-term perspective, the realm of artificial general intelligence (AGI).
Advancing Human Nature in the Age of Technology
The theory of Emotional Warfare, taking the natural science meaning of theory , addresses elements found in the substrates of the human psyche and psychosocially. Emotional Warfare's theoretical framework mitigates human biases and algorithmic decision-making processes to accurately capture the habit–action–behavior situational dynamics of Emotional Warfare that have evolved alongside the human brain and been reinforced through the ever-shifting enculturation of modern humans. Throughout recorded history, there have been popularized anthropological, philosophical, psychological, and modern psychiatric proverbs, as well as personalities within various disciplines and theories, that have become prominent metaphors in daily transactional dialogue and rhetoric and that penetrate various language games (today appearing in the form of modern memes), which further shape and influence ways of being and doing in a world that grows exponentially more complex. These memes have developed in tandem with the dissemination of language and ideas, from early cave drawings to written language, from the printing press to the production of mass volumes of literature, from the initial stages of the internet to burgeoning online access and big data platforms, all the way to modern virtual worlds that function as externalized forms of consciousness and the development of the "metaverse." Indeed, the links between human consciousness (or linguistic brains versus nonlinguistic brains) and a virtual world that contains the elements of simulation such as these have long existed. However, as generally understood within the underlying social Darwinian and Aristotelian politics of human beings, unconscious drives and subconsciously driven motivators and informal social networking strategies (or stratagems) are most often at play in the Platonian shadows that further complexify unconscious drives and motivators by context shaping and programming the mind within seen or unseen, structured or formal hierarchies.
The Philosophy of Divide and its conjoined theory of Emotional Warfare provide a full-spectrum platform to deal with this ongoing situation, along with a specialized focus on human conflict, whether interiorly or outwardly considered, and are geared directly toward optimization. This approach takes a premise of adaptation through programming , ultimately attained via a first-principles-oriented groundwork to the One Divide Platform that impacts our awareness of human nature and the corresponding or resulting human experience through new stimuli (i.e., information bundles, packets, or packages that combine to form larger subsets of knowledge) and also impacts the human network in biological and mechanistic contexts. Human culture is a form of biology, or an organization of biological resources, and emotions have a nonlinguistic biological base. Emotions themselves do not require language or autonoetic consciousness. Therefore, while emotions are culturally mediated, they not cultural constructs or cultural byproducts. The neuro-mechanistic or neuroscientific understandings of emotions and emotional states can be definitively premised thus: emotions are structural. The neuro-anatomy—the "parts of the brain"—all has input and output connectivity to other parts of the brain; emotions have survival-based circuitry; and culture forms mainly from determinant biological factors pressurized within ecological conditions. All this combines to substantiate a core component to a primary Building Block in the theory of Emotional Warfare: the Building Block of Emotion-Based Survival Skills (EBSS).
Of course, each part or region of the brain has developmental aspects. These determine the functionality of that region—especially regarding emotions. Interoception (interior or somatic self-awareness) and exteroception (external or outward environmental self-awareness) are intertwined mechanics of sensory motor inputs and outputs whereby emotions arise in the brain and body. Whether emotions are looked at in terms of their emergence, via neuron circuits of the brain and body that shift emotional states; as contextual, with social components and drives; or charted along categorical juxtapositions such as alert/asleep, positive/negative (or good/bad), inward/outward attention, emotions have baseline features of functionality that, in general, center on interior and outward qualities of prediction and relational bond forming. Each of these can be considered a collection of micro - habits or atomized algorithmic sequences that combine to underpin interior and outward action and thus behavior that produces situation-based variables, variations, and valences, which combine to instantiate what I have termed the situational dynamics in the emotional paradigms that construct or provide the scaffolding to the human experience.
William James (1890) once stated,
When we look at living creatures from an outward point of view, one of the first things that strike us is that they are bundles of habits. In wild animals, the usual round of daily behavior seems a necessity implanted at birth; in animals domesticated, and especially in man, it seems, to a great extent, to be the result of education. The habits to which there is an innate tendency are called instincts; some of those due to education would by most persons be called acts of reason.
With this in mind, to prime the reader for the main content of this volume, there are several topics to clarify and details to highlight, to initiate a new plasticity within modern computational contexts. In the twenty-first century, in what can be considered a continuation of the Age of Technology—ultimately rooted in the Enlightenment—there is a resounding necessity to move toward a higher-order reasoning through modulation of the human brain and mind and optimization of the human individual and human peoples.
With the backdrop of additional long-considered topics such as atomization, the philosophical-to-psychological principles discussed in this volume extend seamlessly to the domains of artificial intelligence and artificial general intelligence, through a methodology that demonstrates a problem-solving sequence aimed at advancing human nature within the Age of Technology. In taking on this problem-solving sequence, as the reader will undoubtedly find themselves doing throughout each of this volume's sections, one goes through the problem-solving process, often regarded as "reflection." To produce efficient higher-order reasoning and understanding through reflection, if more concrete or mechanical reasoning is to efficiently occur, reflection itself must be semantically depicted and visually represented as well. An interface of perception must be provided in order to evoke reflection and the problem-solving process.
A key concept and model central to the Philosophy of One Divide is its computation-based behavioral mapping capabilities, underpinned by a graph-of-knowledge framework—or a computation knowledge graph—providing feedback and feedforward looping and additional meta-models (which I refer to as intellectual conduits ) that form a "categorical language system" infused into combined knowledge graphs. This intentional design allows the Philosophy of One Divide to work seamlessly from philosophical, psychological, and AI computational contextualizations toward AGI computational conceptualizations. In this particular manner, the Philosophy of One Divide provides a predicate logic formulation and abstraction-funneling system that works alongside its categorical language system to establish an interlinked data set (e.g., consider the modern approach to the Semantic Web) that forms a specific combined set of knowledge graphs, providing an epistemological and ontological knowledge base. This constructs a symbolic learning surface and interface system that assists in deciphering human nature's prime Building Blocks as described in the Philosophy of One Divide's Anatomy of the Pattern of Emotional Warfare: The Map .
The graph-of-knowledge feature of the Map provides additional symbolic learning and is purposively constructed to replace the antiquated premise of the computationally bound and embedded human knower who attempts to observe the naturalistic world (and its atomized components or metauniverse attributes) and human knowledge—or an ontology, symbolic knowledge base, or knowledgeable underpinning (e.g., learning about both objects and abstract concepts, and implementing rules to deal with those conceptualizations)—to gain awareness and eventual explicit understanding of how the strata world works through more derivative, refined, and/or basic concepts and rules.
The design of the Map also has a deeper influence involving graph theory. A helpful review of graph theory can be found in the introduction to Hilger et al.'s article in Nature (2017),
Graph theory, a computational approach for the detailed modelling and characterization of large-scale networks, can be used to describe both the brain network as a whole as well as the connectivity profile of specific nodes within that network. To model the brain network as a graph, the brain is spatially parcellated into a set of regions that serve as network nodes. When functional networks are modeled, edges, i.e., functional connections, are defined between nodes with highly correlated time series of the blood-oxygen-level dependent (BOLD) signal. Together, the nodes and edges define a graph with a specific topology, whose functional properties can be described by various graph-theoretical metrics. Investigations of intelligence-related differences in the topological organization of brain networks have so far focused on the graph-theoretical concept of network efficiency and initially suggested an overall more efficient network topology in more intelligent persons due to on average shorter paths from any node in the network to any other. However, in node-specific analyses, the association between intelligence and measures of network efficiency was found to vary between brain regions.
Graph-theoretical investigations of intelligence and brain network connectivity have so far not considered that functional connections are not uniformly distributed across the network, but clustered into subnetworks (modules, communities) that are densely connected internally but only weakly coupled with the rest of the network. Modular network organization is a general feature of complex biological systems and has been associated with functional specialization as well as with robustness and adaptability of the network system. Within these modular brain networks, each node is characterised by a specific profile of within- and between-module connectivity, which determines a node's functional role in neural processing within and across different modules, and allows to classify nodes into different node types (e.g., connector hubs , provincial hubs ), whose relative quantities may influence the information flow within the whole network.
In both intellectual and design elements, the Map, which represents each of the nine Building Blocks and the connectivity within and between them that manifests Emotional Warfare, can be considered to fit within graph theory. The Map captures the specific profile of modules (the Building Blocks) that have within- and between-module connectivity (directional arrows depicted as arcs) which determines the functional role of a node (a sectional area that contains specific Building Blocks) in the overall Pattern of Emotional Warfare within and across different models (each of the Building Blocks), and makes it possible to classify nodes into different node types (e.g., as with graph theory, connector hubs, provincial hubs), whose relative quantiles may influence the "information" flow—and the information's directional influence—within the network: the graph theory–based Map of Emotional Warfare, and the resulting anatomy of the Pattern of Emotional Warfare.
Algorithmic Necessity and Accountability
Advancing Beyond ‘Tree of Life' or ‘Tree of Knowledge' Metaphors to Accommodate Nonlinear, Evolving Human Nature
An advancement beyond speculative theories, wide-spanning non-naturalistic world views, and the age-weathered "Tree of Life" or "Tree of Knowledge" metaphors is necessary to accommodate nonlinear, evolving human nature. Moreover, advancing the human species and human nature—that is, moving forward a fundamental aspect of the human experience and potentially fundamentally (and positively) augmenting our evolutionary biological-perception-based mentalized construction of the human experience within the physical universe—in a Darwinian manner or type of "kin selection" or gene advancement (e.g., consider the work of E. O. Wilson (1998), his theory of kin selection, and his views on biodiversity), requires a broadened theory whose predictive powers and application can extend beyond its own range—when improved upon through continued research, development, and application—or beyond other existing theories' ranges.
Classic examples of this exist in various disciplines, especially where rigorous scientific research and testing is the standard and not the anecdotal. One could consider the intellectual transition between Darwin and Wilson, the standard model, or Einstein's general relativity, which replaced Newton's theory of gravity. In more recent developments, consider string theory—however, while this remains a promising frontrunner to be a theory of everything in physics, it is so far unproven and embattled. Given the necessary criteria of a scientific theory and the adversarial competitive model promoted within the sciences, the politics of academia in general, and the discipline of physics itself, when it comes to theory, do the highest theoretical truth and scientific justifications always prevail?
Significant advances also come from various places that can be considered the marketplace of ideas (i.e., private or commercial sectors). Consider the work of computer scientist and physicist Stephen Wolfram, A New Kind of Science (2002) and his software system Wolfram Mathmatica, as well as his ongoing research and the development of his theories within the domain of physics working toward a new fundamental theory of everything—formulated outside the standard pathways of discovery.
To move forward in the Age of Technology, the scientific value of a theory—or its utility in the real world, i.e., its intrinsic value—involves two primary notions: first, the theory is genuinely established when it is confronted by the realities of the natural world; and secondly, when accurate, simple rules give rise to complex structures . To accommodate these concerns, the Philosophy of One Divide's philosophical-psychological platform extends into the realm of AI through a first principles approach. Working from first principles, an algorithmic "default mode" or additional layer to the approach is established: the range of the theory of Emotional Warfare expands cross-sectionally, with algorithmic accountability, to improve existing systems and the second-wave accountability functionality challenging those systems.
This two-wave (meta-analytic) approach involves a twofold premise. First, the demands of survival of the human species in the twenty-first century and beyond necessitate intellectual maneuvers that reach beyond the long-standing pursuits of human knowledge, many of which have been commonly discussed, teleologically or otherwise, within generalizable metaphors (such as the "Tree of Life" or "Tree of Knowledge") stemming from ancient Eastern philosophies and sciences while attempting to incorporate Western philosophy and sciences—but maintaining obvious mythological and religious roots. While these metaphors are still utilized, and have their value, they are used less frequently (and will eventually be phased out) given their semantic connotations and various ambiguous reference frames and contextualizations that restrict compatibility within the hard sciences, producing an inherent intellectual and computational constraint on the already computationally bound human agent.
Second, the intellectual maneuvering and ultimately the intellectual transition that I am speaking of involves advancing toward a computationally compatible platform that works within mathematical or fractal principles and visual (or optic-to-mentalization) imagery and thus toward an "interface" that manifests both the implicit and the explicit elements of human nature along with the interiority and the exteroception of human behavior, resulting in both meta-data and infra-data: a knowledge-based system as well as a common-sense knowledge, human reasoning, and universal common language that allows for and/or provides a universalized behavioral model conjoined with behavioral mapping attributes—and, ultimately, an intellectual conduit—that can accurately capture and problem solve emergent situational dynamics and provide novel solutions for the computationally bound individual human agent.
The Philosophy of One Divide meets both of these premises while remaining within alignment values that work toward an objective and definitive platform, providing both a human-agent model and a synthetic-agent model of human nature—which can also be seen in neural circuits, reflected in the design features of the Map, where (in general) regions or individual neurons are the nodes and axonal connections are represented by directed edges—that includes not only the evolutionary behavioral paradigms (i.e., contextualized emotional paradigms that are supported through social linguistics) housing organismic, biological, animalistic, and abstraction components of intra-interplay or interior-to-outward interpretations and inferences, but also the psycho-social, interpersonal, or relational circumplex domains. This establishes an information-to-knowledge looping effect in which information is sent to a central "home base," and the home base improves its system and redeploys new protocols, reference frames, or program updates to increase the system's "knowledge" and improve or optimize performance, elevating the consciousness of the host—expanding the agent's sense of awareness or of self in the process. To this end, the notions of awareness and understanding themselves are foundational to forward movement and intellectual progress in every aspect. In short, "something" not seen, or what "someone" remains unaware of, cannot be seen—nonetheless understood—unless that someone (or agent) actively seeks that something out. In this specific contextualization, awareness and understanding are the foundation to the One Divide Platform and utilized as tools to reveal the otherwise concealed Pattern(s) of Emotional Warfare and its intra-interplay stratified attributes in a purposeful, directed manner that provides necessary critical thinking skills to optimize (or override) previously programmed or ingrained (or pattern-based) habits, actions, behaviors, attitudes, thoughts, worldviews, and et cetera that underpin someone's (or the agent's) entire interior and outward life experience. Alternatively, it provides the autonomic nervous system baseline, unconscious to subconscious cues, and overall cognitive lens to the inferred and interpreted (subjective/objective) existence that substantiates that experience: All aspects tying into, implicitly or explicitly, the structurization of emotions. Which has combined intra-interpersonal facets—or contains nervous system responses, inclusive to both agent-environment-recipient or recipient-environment-agent directional flows, containing intermixed situationally based dynamic behaviorism and environmental attributes and/or psychosocial relation values.
As a result, the Philosophy of One Divide is positioned as a philosophical psychology and behavioral and comprehensive psychopathology framework, predicated on its theory of Emotional Warfare, which includes centralized and universalized conceptions that are biologically, genetically, and/or psychologically influenced, working in tandem with human cognitive development.
To further conceptualize how this is accomplished in the One Divide Platform, consider the influential work of Timothy Leary (1957), e.g., interpersonal circumplex, which inspired many notable taxonomies of interpersonal personality traits and behaviors that extend beyond Leary's original dynamic behaviorism and vertical and horizontal axes of dominance/affiliation and generally involve broadened vertical and horizontal axes of agency communion. As an aside, while there is general psychological parlance between Leary's interpersonal circumplex and other circumplexes influenced by his work, the Philosophy of One Divide provides a new mathematical structure within a definitive structural diagram, the Dual-Transactional Behavior Model (DTBM), which captures forms of dynamic behaviorism as well as psychosocial relation values (or aspects of emotion appearing in social bonds or "attachment," e.g., consider Mary Dinsmore Ainsworth and her core perspective that attachment is "a secure space from which to explore" (1963), and the standard of methodology for assessing or measuring attachment, influenced by her Patterns of Attachment: A Psychological Study of the Strange Situation (1978)). However, this work remains distinctly original and produces distinct structural analytics as a result—aligning with the "known" and producing similar results as well-tested lines of inquiry have but pushing beyond them and into new forms of predictiveness and utility. Thus, direct correlation to Leary's work or others' work influenced by his will not be highlighted. The articulation of the type of intra-interpersonal circumplex depicted within a structural diagram and adjoining illustrations within the Philosophy of One Divide identified as the DTBM will remain original in their conception and presentation.

Where We Are,
Where We Are Headed,
the True/False Problem
The notion that humans hold distorted views of reality for survival purposes is longstanding and can be seen in ancient belief systems and ideologies. In more modern humans, it appears in adaptive versus maladaptive psychological defenses (or healthy versus unhealthy reality distortion); it is also evident in structured worldviews such as Buddhism and in other philosophical analogies such as Plato's Allegory of the Cave. It is this same notion that gives rise to the idea that there is no single executive "self." Instead, the mind is modular, composed of multiple "sub-selves" or executive systems with different goals. Those sub-selves (and underlying regions of the brain and various associated neuronal systems and connections) do not necessarily communicate well with one another on interoceptive or exteroceptive levels, or within the organism-to-environment, biological-to-behavioral system that incorporates both psychological and psychosocial planes of complexity. This flawed communication between sub-selves is captured by the theory of Emotional Warfare and by the structural diagram of the DTBM and the structural analytics it produces.
There are many examples to utilize here, whether reaching back into antiquity to demonstrate the underpinnings of the structural diagram of the DTBM, influenced by the geometric shape of a diamond as a Platonic form (an abstract state but independent of minds within their realm) or mathematical Platonism, or the DTBM in conjunction with the Map, which provides additional mathematical components to the entire One Divide platform that can be seen within both finite and infinite graph premises with particular influence from graph circuitry, as best premised by Euler in 1736 and by Arthur Cayley's Cayley graph from 1878 respectively. However, one must always consider the fast-moving modern technological advances that are bringing Platonian clarity, and levels of modern-day codifiability, to the universe itself—and to the mechanistic functionality of the brain—which allow for the perception (and abstract conceptualizations and perspectives) of not only the universe but also our experience as agents within it.
Individuals striving to push those advances even further ahead and more deeply from generalized awareness to explicit understanding, using technology, undoubtedly challenge what we consider to be true and false about the world we live in and our sense of self, biologically and cognitively speaking. Evolutionary aspects of the human mind are moving apace due to these advancements of technology—and in some applications, due to technological programs outpacing human intellect itself. Technology in this context is not a justification system, like epistemological science or an ontological theory of science of ontic reality. New technologies are computational programs that are accelerations of the innate pattern identification, processing, and pattern recognition framework deployed by the biological human brain and replicated through code, allowing those processes to expand, elevate, and explore beyond the human brain's capabilities and the mind's algorithmic capacities. An example can be found in the development of AlphaFold and its latest rendition (AlphaFold2): "Underpinning the latest version of AlphaFold is a novel machine learning approach that incorporates physical and biological knowledge about protein structure, leveraging multi-sequence alignments, into the design of the deep learning algorithm." Also consider recent advances in the psychological and psychiatric fields—or the domain of neuro-tech— involving potential approaches to the brain itself and (potentially) solving or mediating "treatment-resistant" psychological symptoms, disorders, or conditions, e.g., treatment-resistant depression (TRD), using deep brain stimulation (DBS) techniques such as the Stanford accelerated intelligent neuromodulation therapy (SAINT).
With the above examples in mind, and with the notion that even universal, synchronized events are experienced on an individual basis, albeit within a collective interpersonal (or shared) framework, the individual experience emerges from or is attached to the subjective personal narrative, which is also computationally bound. This adds to the noise of the collective psychosocial, interpersonal narrative surrounding these advancing technologies. To advance human nature in the Age of Technology, to cut through the noise, my focus is grounded in not only where we are presently but also where we are heading .
Within the subjective computational boundaries, an additional complication becomes apparent: it is not only the classic philosophical "is/ought" problem I am attempting to solve but also the "true/false" problem of how we want to interpret or make inferences about human behavior(s) and thus human experience and the human condition neuro-physiologically. It is not the "where we are" part of the equation but rather the "where we are headed," whether philosophically, psychologically, or technologically, that will be defined by the element of habit and action that initiates patterns of behavior.
However, changing what I referred to previously as situational dynamics is dependent upon actionable steps of gaining awareness and an explicit understanding of the problem involved and the problem-solving sequence for it. From the philosophical-psychological domain, this can be considered analogous to the notion that intervention strategies most often center on developing skills (cognitive or otherwise) to move away from problems, suppressing them, in a manner of speaking, by changing the way one thinks or feels, or attaining emotional regulation techniques. However, "There is general consensus among practising therapists that problem-solving is the most effective emotion regulation strategy and expressive suppression is the least effective" (Southward et al., 2021).
With the sound notion that computational formulas or algorithmic sequences based in objectivity generally outperform subjective judgements or decisions made by individual agents, the classic philosophical "is/ought" problem once again arises. (See Kahneman et al. (2021) for the premise of judgmental biases and the issue of "noise" surrounding such biases and decisions, which forms loosely from high to low.) When inserted into the modern context of where we are and where we are headed in terms of continuing the human evolutionary process through and beyond the twenty-first century, this problem calls up the issues surrounding consciousness, intelligence, and simulation theories attempting to underpin and inform our understanding of human behavior and of human knowledge. However, operating intentionally from first principles, and despite all the diverse topics of exploration relevant to this discussion, I will focus on bringing further awareness and explicit understanding of Emotional Warfare as an evolving law of human nature that comprises very concrete, weakly emergent strata and principled philosophical and psychological notions revealed within the Philosophy of One Divide's groundwork, thus continuing to extend the (self-)evidentiary range of the theory of Emotional Warfare—pushing the platform toward a seamless intellectual bridge between the domains of One Divide Philosophy, One Divide Psychology, and One Divide [AI].
