Excerpt

In Chapter 5 we set forth in a technical fashion our largest units of human behavior, the behavioreme and hyper behavioreme, which we had illustrated in a less technical fashion in Chapters 3 and 4. In Chapters 6 and 7 respectively we dealt with the minimum units within the feature mode and the distribution mode of the behavioreme. Now we turn to its manifestation mode to look at those structural units of movement which constitute the manifested elements of all the modes. It is these units of physical motion which underlie all the physically-manifested units of purpose and meaning, or of distribution and structural function, which we have already discussed. These units of motion, nevertheless, are not the same structures as those discussed in Chapters 5-7, even though they ultimately include the same substance; they are separately structured, with different criteria and often but not always with different borders. In this chapter we will deal with the minimum active units of the manifestation mode of the behavioreme, following which, in Chapter 9, we shall treat the larger units of the same mode of the behavioreme.
