Tentative adaptation and development from Arthur Young's The Geometry of Meaning (1978). See commentary on learning cycles in Cycles of dissonance and resonance. See also adaptation to Typology of 12 complementary strategies essential to sustainable development and to Typology of 12 complementary dialogue modes essential to sustainable dialogue. This table was originally published with the rows and columns transposed.
Learning via... Space-binding Unconscious
(In-volution) 
Unintended shift of:
- perspective 
- position 
- reference 
Displacement of focus
 
Unconscious impression of significance Subject to an unintended shift of perspective Unexplained problems 
Imponderables 
External constraints
Time-binding   Conscious
(Re-volution)
Intentional shift of

- position 
- reference 
Range of conscious attention span 
'Distance' from object of focus

T-3 L/T3

Control of transformative action

ML/T3

Establishment of disciplined pattern of response; consolidated or harmonious control of action potential; holding forces in check

ML2/T3

Power of acquired knowledge; know-how; integrated or embodied experience; capacity (including that of not acting); non-action
-
Auto-catalytic response  Comparison with norms or memory of
previous experience 
Self-awareness
T-2 L/T2

Spontaneous initiation of transformative action; commitment to a new course of action
ML/T2

Forcefulness engendered, experienced or embodied as a result of transformative action; constructive (or disruptive) action potential; enhanced sense of being
ML2/T2

Achievement of a desired result by application of understanding (and adjustment of implicit beliefs) in response to external factors; working action on reality
-
Homeostatic equilibrium 

Unconscious adaptation
Conscious adaptive response 
Awareness
T-1 L /T

Adaptive change; reaction; passive adaptation or change of position in response to changing circumstances
ML /T

Recognition of the momentum (of an issue) resulting from a change, namely the consequential transformation of awareness or perspective
ML2/T

Decision or impulse to act or initiate a process determining the future
-
Unconscious registration of information Timeless awareness
Non-duration 
T0 L

Observation; act of considering; position determination; reactive learning based on immediate registration of phenomena; assessment of distance; 'sizing up'
ML

Recognition of moment(ousness), relevance (as related to leverage), significance (as in 'matters of great moment'); weight of facts; bringing matters into focus
ML2

Faith in current paradigm or perception of reality; unexamined or habitual commitment to a process projection or understanding, irrespective of inconsistent disturbing factors
