Abstract

The objective of the research was to answer the question: What kinds of processes prevail between molar behavior (verbal and nonverbal) and mind processes? Data were obtained from a videotaped program where the participants had no possibilities to see the stimuli. The number of the subjects was 40. Reliability of observation was assessed in two ways; from the z-score based correlation matrix and from the normalized vectors. The statistical analysis comprised of state vectors of the mind processes and the conditional matrix powered from 1 to 11. So the analysis was a stochastic process with a regular matrix. The results indicated the existence the process system with controls. The mindamic evolves until the half of the process and then reaches dynamic equilibrium. A surprise was a fact; the shape mindition has a greater chance to transmute into the experientally organized mindition. So the question is not to fill-in the plain organized mindition with experiental content. The fact a part of the former researches showed. At the same time it was necessary to develop novel concepts for molar behavior that included both verbal and nonverbal behaviors. Again the importance of the transmuter emphasized as an executer
