By using system theory terminology, the first chapter discusses how two systems can connect. Also, some new notions are introduced to help understand how connections impact upon systems. The conclusions accepted in the first chapter will then in the second chapter, be framed in terms of the person, as a system, and its sub-systems, namely, cognitive schemata. The impact of the connections of these cognitive schemata on the human psyche will then be presented in a simplified model.< Less
