Entities and Brain Organization:
Logogenesis of Meaningful Time-Forms

The central nervous system function of time-form entities are examined. The term Logogenesis is introduced as a concept to denote genetically programmed development of mental concepts and time form-entities, as a counterpart to morphogenesis which concerns development of structure. Special attention is given to the time-form logogenesis of natural language entities of emotion communication, and their natural syntax. How time-forms are used in music to generate living, meaningful performances from written scores is described and proved with computer generated classical music, in the context of four modes of time experience, t1, t2, t3, and t4. The modes apply to different time scales and use different natural data processing properties. Models of appropriate peptide dynamics are suggested for some of these amygda-related processes. Some properties of modified time consciousness in relation to these modes are also discussed.
