disclaimer: I am an very audacious, presumptuous and very ignorant buffoon who dares to speculate about things he knows little about. c.c ---but here's a go at an idea. since, to my knowledge, nothing like this yet exists.

Followup to this thread and this post.

The point of this system isn't to be "correct" from its first iteration, but to actually try to conceive of an appropriate

This is an experiment in figuring out what it would take to construct the right type of theory, and possibly elevate psychology into a more precise science.

In chemistry, mathematics, and physics.... everything is able to function because we can start with proper quantifications of (hypothetical) objects or substances. Whether that is numbers, or molecules. It's important to have a rather static understanding of the "subjects" of the interaction before we can calculate the interaction.

Given Carl Jung's quote in the image above, imagine this:

In order to do this, we have to have a language to define the "present tense" state of Subjects A and B. And that may be emergent from a constant background/default 'state' + the variability provided by the present moment's mood. I'll get back to this point.

In order to minimize the variables for this thread, I'm only going to start with a single type of situation and a single subject's internal morphing.

Situation: Stress

Subject: Jane

Ok! I hope that's all the setup needed... on to the thought experiment!

*start-to-finish*"mathematical" quantification of the entire metabolic process of stress, or more generally, human interaction.This is an experiment in figuring out what it would take to construct the right type of theory, and possibly elevate psychology into a more precise science.

**Controlled Variables, Precise Definitions**In chemistry, mathematics, and physics.... everything is able to function because we can start with proper quantifications of (hypothetical) objects or substances. Whether that is numbers, or molecules. It's important to have a rather static understanding of the "subjects" of the interaction before we can calculate the interaction.

Given Carl Jung's quote in the image above, imagine this:

- a) We know the exact emotional state of Subject A
- b) We know the exact emotional state of Subject B
- c) We can determine what the state of both will be like after the interaction

In order to do this, we have to have a language to define the "present tense" state of Subjects A and B. And that may be emergent from a constant background/default 'state' + the variability provided by the present moment's mood. I'll get back to this point.

**One type of Interaction, One Subject**In order to minimize the variables for this thread, I'm only going to start with a single type of situation and a single subject's internal morphing.

Situation: Stress

Subject: Jane

Ok! I hope that's all the setup needed... on to the thought experiment!
