The Orthographic Model of Emotions
Self Help for Robots is a website (https://selfhelp4robots.com/) and a podcast on iTunes to discuss a description of emotions so simple, a machine could understand it.
This this three-axis model, a fourth dimension of CLARITY (versus AMBIGUITY) would appear as a distinct point, or a cloud of probability to represent the dimension. It’s ironic, isn’t it, to represent a vague feeling with precision, but that’s the point of emotional primitives.
As I mention in my podcast, a statement like “You are okay!” can be represented in the model as a POSITIVE gain experienced in the PRESENT—that eternal boundary between past and future represented in part by that large box in the middle of the model—and as I express that towards a listener or reader, the OUTER domain from my perspective.
