IF FURTHER CONFIRMED, THE O&T-MODEL OF MENTAL DEVELOPMENT WILL…
      
…POINT UP THAT, OUT THERE IN THE DATA, FREUDIAN PSYCHOANALYSIS AND PIAGET'S DIALECTICAL STRUCTURALISM ARE INSEPARABLY LINKED. THE MODEL MAY THEREBY SUGGEST FUNCTIONAL META-LEVELS OF BIOLOGICAL UNDERSTANDING. (1)

…CLARIFY THE TRANSITIONS FROM CAUSALITY TO FEEDBACK SYSTEMS TO THE INTENTIONALITY OF THE SELF, AND BY THE SAME TOKEN FROM BODY TO MIND, FROM BIOLOGY TO THE SOCIAL SCIENCES AND THE HUMANITIES. (2)

…REVEAL THAT AT THE ONSET AND CORE OF EACH SUCCESSIVE STRUCTURAL LEVEL – FROM A CELL TO AN ORGANISM TO OUR MIND AND UP TO A WHOLE CULTURE – THERE IS A BASIC BLUEPRINT ORGANIZING AND SPURRING ITS SPECIFIC NEW FUNCTIONS, AKIN TO THE GENOME, AND ROOTED IN SEXUAL REPRODUCTION. (3)

…DISCOVER, AT THE CORE OF MENTAL DEVELOPMENT, FIVE EPIGENETIC STEPS LEADING FROM THE NEWBORN INFANT TO THE YOUNG ADULT – THE FIVE 'ORGANIZERS' – AT EACH OF WHICH A NEW MENTAL ORGANIZATION EMERGES. (4)

…DEMONSTRATE HOW FREUD'S MAJOR DISCOVERIES CAN INDEPENDENTLY BE DERIVED 'FROM BELOW', BASED ON MULTIDISCIPLINARY DATA. (5)

…DETECT WITHIN THE CORE DEVELOPMENTS THE SYSTEMATIC PARALLELISM AND EQUIFINALITY OF ENDOGENOUS AND EXOGENOUS FACTORS – OF NATURE AND NURTURE, AND WILL TRACE THEM BACK TO THE MIRRORING NATURE OF EARLY ATTACHMENTS. (6)

…RECOGNIZE IN THE FIRST 'ATTACHMENT OBJECT' THE PROTOTYPE OF LATER, INTERNALIZED CORE GOALS, AND WILL PROPOSE RULES THAT GOVERN, STEP BY STEP, THE INTEGRATION OF IMPLICIT CORE GOALS INTO THE SYSTEM OF EXPLICIT MEANS AND DERIVATIVE GOALS – FREUD'S 'EGO'. (7)

…TRY TO SHOW THAT THE HUMAN MIND, AROUND 18 MONTHS, MUST AND DOES ARISE EXPLOSIVELY OUT OF THE SENSORIMOTOR OR 'MIRROR LEVEL', BY WAY OF THE WELL DEFINED TRANSITIONS OF THE 'EARLY TRIANGULATION'. THE RESULTING FIRST MENTAL IMAGES OF 'SELF-(LOVES)-OBJECT IMPLY FROM THE BEGINNING PIAGET'S SEMIOTIC FUNCTION, THE SELF WITH ITS SEXUAL CORE WISH (OR' PRIMAL DRIVE'), ITS INCHOATE IMAGINARY SPACE AND ITS EPISODIC MEMORY, AS WELL AS FREUD'S 'DYNAMIC UNCONSCIOUS SYSTEM' — AND MUCH MORE. THIS IS THE BIG BANG OF OUR SPECIES. (8)

…DESCRIBE HOW, THEREAFTER, FREUD'S FOUR PSYCHOSEXUAL STAGES RECAPITULATE, AT THE UNCONSCIOUS CORE OF THE SEMIOTIC SYSTEM, BOTH THE THREE EARLY ORGANIZERS AND ROIPHE'S ABORTIVE 'EARLY PSYCHOSEXUAL STAGES', THEREBY CONFIRMING THE EXTENDED VALIDITY OF PIAGET'S COGNITIVE MODEL. THESE STAGES ALSO UNDERLIE THE STEPS TOWARD FULL 'MENTALIZATION'. (9)

…BEGIN TO UNDERSTAND WHY, IN EARLY TRIANGULATION, THE LOVING PARENTAL COUPLE RE-ENGENDERS THEIR HITHERTO LARVAL OFFSPRING INTO A HUMAN BEING… EARLY TRIANGULATION WOULD THEN CONSTITUTE A TRUE METAMORPHOSIS, AS WELL AS A FULL RECAPITULATION OF THE EMBRYONIC ANDROGENIZATION OF THE BRAIN – OF OUR 'PRIMAL ORGANIZER'… (10)

…EXPLAIN CORE GENDER DIFFERENCES BY THE FACT THAT, IN OPTIMAL DEVELOPMENT, BOYS REACH TRIANGULAR IDENTIFICATION WITH THE FATHER AT 18 MONTHS, WHILE GIRLS WOULD ACHIEVE 'SEXUAL TRIANGULATION' BETWEEN FOUR AND SIX YEARS (OEDIPUS), AND IN A DIFFERENT WAY. (11)

…INFER THAT OEDIPAL TRIANGULATION GENERATES THE FIRST TWO CORE GROUP REPRESENTATIONS OF THE SELF (FAMILY GROUP AND PEER GROUP), AND THAT ADOLESCENT 'GENITALITY' AND FORMAL THINKING ARE BOTH SPAWNED BY THEIR TRIANGULATION. (12)

…PREDICT THAT IT IS THE INTEGRATION OF THE TEMPORAL DIMENSION INTO THE SEMIOTIC CORE IMAGE SYSTEM THAT CONCLUDES INDIVIDUAL ORGANIZER DEVELOPMENT – AND WILL FIND THIS PREDICTION EMPIRICALLY CONFIRMED AT THE THRESHOLD OF ADULTHOOD. IN RETROSPECT, EACH OF THE THREE TRIANGULATING ORGANIZERS ADDS A NEW DIMENSION OF SPACE-TIME TO THE UNCONSCIOUS CORE IMAGE SYSTEM. (13)

…SHOW THAT, IN THE LIGHT OF MODERN EVOLUTIONARY BIOLOGY, OF DEVELOPMENTAL RESEARCH (E.G. ON MODES OF ATTACHEMENT AND OF PSYCHOANALYTIC EXPERIENCE), IT IS LEGITIMATE AND USEFUL FOR A BIO-PSYCHO-SOCIAL MODEL SUCH AS OURS TENTATIVELY TO OUTLINE AN OPTIMAL COURSE OF DEVELOPMENT. (14)

…DERIVE THEREFROM BOLDLY - QUASI SCIENTIFICALLY - AN OPTIMAL SCALE OF HUMANISTIC VALUES. (15)

…CONCLUDE THEREFROM BOLDLY THAT ACADEMIC 'EXPERIMENTAL' PSYCHOLOGY HAS NOT AND CANNOT ON ITS OWN BECOME A TRULY SCIENTIFIC PSYCHOLOGY OF HOMO SAPIENS – JUST AS EXPERIMENTAL PHYSICS MUST EVOLVE IN A DIALOGUE WITH FORMAL THEORETICAL MODELS. (16)

... MAKE IT LOOK AS IF ALL PHYLOGENETIC AND ONTOGENETIC CURRENTS CONVERGING TOWARDS MAHLER'S 'PSYCHOLOGICAL BIRTH' FOLLOWED SOME INTELLIGENT DESIGN; BUT, BUTTRESSED BY SYSTEMATICS AND BY A HOST OF DATA, THE MODEL WILL ALSO ADUMBRATE WAYS IN WHICH A FORTUITOUS BEGINNING MIGHT HAVE EVOLVED ON ITS OWN TOWARD INTENTIONALITY AND MEANING — STEP BY STEP, ORGANIZER BY ORGANIZER. MORE STEPS MIGHT FOLLOW, TOWARDS YET MORE INTENTIONAL AND EVENTUALLY SHARED GOALED-DIRECTEDNESS.  (17) 

…DIAGNOSE THAT THE ENLIGHTENMENT AND THE SUBSEQUENT ADVENT OF THE SCIENTIFIC METHOD - SO FAR CONFINED TO A TINY VANGUARD OF US - ARE BUT THE FIRST SYMPTOMS OF ADOLESCENCE BEFALLING HUMANITY AS A WHOLE. THEY WOULD HERALD OUR 'COLLECTIVE FIFTH ORGANIZER', THE POTENTIALLY SUSTAINABLE MATURITY OF OUR SPECIES. (18)

…DIAGNOSE, THEREFORE, THAT THE UPCOMING ECOLOGICAL BREAKDOWNS ARE BUT THE MOST VISIBLE SYMPTOMS OF THE DEVELOPMENTAL LAG EXISTING BETWEEN THIS 'GENITALLY' THINKING AND FEELING VANGUARD AND OUR POLITICAL AND ECONOMIC SYSTEMS, WHICH ARE STILL DEEPLY MIRED IN THEIR 'PREGENITAL' STRUCTURES AND IMPLICIT VALUES. (19)

WANT TO KNOW MORE? On the next page, a comparative chart of all our levels and organizers will help you grasp at once the main features of the model; and the listing of all the headings in all of the 25 "Bern Lectures" will convey to you the breadth and the depth of our supportive evidence. You may also want to go to the Short Summary of the Model . But IF YOU QUESTION THE COGENCY OF OUR FAR-REACHING CLAIMS, TAKE THE TIME TO READ IN SEQUENCE THE WHOLE SERIES OF THE 25 LECTURES.
