I have been playing with the concept of insideness and outsideness for a couple of posts now and I am realizing I have my concept of insideness and outsideness backwards. I realized the individual’s or system’s existential or operational layer is always to the outside and the number of layers or complexity of an individual or system is reflected as increased depth.
So, not only will I be presenting hexads, I will be presenting them with new insight into insideness and outsideness. That insight is that the boundary that separates insideness from outsideness separates one system from another. Here is what Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs properly looks like:
