How We Think: Brain Algorithms in Psychodynamics

  • Gerald A. CoryJr.


The primary and reciprocal algorithms describe not only how we fundamentally behave, but also how we think. The primary algorithmic pattern of order →chaos →order and its variant, incorporation → extension → incorporation appear throughout the discipline of psychology mostly unintentionally and in a disguised form. The reciprocal ego/empathy dynamic, likewise, is expressed, sometimes explicitly sometimes not. The two algorithms often simply pop out, in part and here and there, in speaking about how the mind works.
