Elementary Unit Responses

WithMarston William M, King C Daly, Elizabeth H Marston

The human organism, apart from its environment, presents a unit action pattern determined by the structure and maturity of the organism itself. The unit pattern can also be modified by external objects permanently attached to the body, or kept attached for long periods of time, like clothes, artificial limbs, and teeth. The spontaneous action unit presents a force which any new environmental stimulus must either successfully oppose or successfully ally with before it can modify conduct. The nodal demarcation points of this combined elementary unit response circle series coincide in such a way as to divide the circle into four equal segments. Each segment will consist of a type of combination between alliance or opposition and increase or decrease which will be unique for that segment and will not occur in any other segment of the circle.
