Consciousness, Levels of…
A distinction is made up of two parts:
- A CHARACTERISTIC or PROPERTY (amount, length, speed, frequency, height, time, pressure, direction, temperature, color)
- THE DIFFERENT VALUES OF THAT PROPERTY (short, medium, long; 2 sec, 5 sec, 10 sec; red, blue, green)
- Short, medium, long
- 4 cm, 5 cm, 10 cm
- 20 seconds, 24 hours, 3 days
A distinction is made when the difference in the value of a characteristic or property makes one thing FUNDAMENTALLY different from another thing. For skill transference purposes, a characteristic or property is not a fundamental property, if a difference in the values applied has no perceptible impact on the desired outcome (eg the cool graphics on my snowboard aren’t going to make a hill-of-beans of difference whether or not I orient myself to the board in such a precise way as to keep myself from catching an edge and executing a perfectly painful face plant in the snow).
Said another way – a distinction is the difference in value of a characteristic or property that makes an actual/realized difference in anticipated outcome.
It’s important to know that the property and the value of the property are only significant in relationship to the specific desired outcome.
