I need a design idea that depicts relationships between three abstract elements: THINKING, FEELING, and DOING. I will need a suite of three designs, each of which might be used repeatedly, with simple modifications, to illustrate both simple and complex relationships among a set of related ideas for a book I am writing.
The first design is the most basic--it simply shows that three elements form a unity, which I call "EXPERIENCE. " Experience can break down into three components, but the components exist simply as parts of the whole--not as things in themselves. The three components are named thinking, feeling, and doing. They may appear to stand alone, pair up, or merge into a unified whole called experience. The essence of experience is that it consists of all three components.
The second design should show that each element has a reciprocal relationship with each of the others. For instance, you can think about feelings, and have feelings about thoughts--the influence goes both ways. You can do something because you feel a certain way, and you can have a felling about what has been done, and so on--again, the influence goes both ways. Every pair of elements must be shown to have a reciprocal influence on the others that goes both ways.
The third design must show another degree of complexity: it should reveal that every primary element--THINKING, FEELING, and DOING--contains all three elements within it. In other words there is a secondary layer within each of three components of the three-element complex that forms experience--it could be thinking, feeling, or experience. In this design, the "second layer" consists of all three elements of "thinking, feeling, and doing" incorporated within each major component of experience. "thinking, feeling, and doing" exist together within each of the three primary elements.
I do not want anything to look like an engineering diagram. I am seeking an artistic design that has intrinsic aesthetic qualities. For clarity, the graphic image should be accompanied by enough text to explain the idea that the graphic symbolizes. >>
