This is believed to prompt changes in behavior. However, a fuller answer to this question of change, and to the one to do with how novelty arises, requires a brief account of how the process of thinking is understood in psychoanalysis. I will take as an example some of Bion’s ideas on the nature of thinking. For Bion (1961b), thoughts arise in the individual as inherited preconceptions, that is, raw elements of sensuous and emotional experience in which the physical and the psychical are indistinguishable and lend themselves only to projective identification.

Linked to the split between the individual and the social is the dual causality typical of systems thinking. Both the social and the individual mind are understood as systems subject to Formative Teleology in that the system unfolds a future enfolded in it. However, any change in the system is due to some action taken outside it by autonomous humans governed by Rationalist Teleology. ● Assumption 10. Emotion is thought of as separate from reason. Feelings tend to be thought of as either negative, in which case they block knowledge creation, or as positive, in which case they motivate learning.

Instead, it is perturbed, or triggered, by external stimuli into actively constructing global patterns of electrochemical activity. Furthermore, these patterns are not stored in specific parts of the brain because each time a stimulus is presented to the body, the brain constructs a pattern anew that involves whole ensembles of neurons in many different parts of the brain. This leads Maturana and Varela to conclude that the nervous system does not simply represent a world; rather, it creates, calls forth, or enacts a world.
