Spatial, Temporal, Somatic and Spiritual Boundaries. Seen as Virtual Reflection of Expanding Personal Selfhood




This paper represents an attempt to understand how could boundaries of values be tentatively outlined, described and addressed. Universal natural categories are observed, experienced and interpreted in the second reality of human mediated understanding. These circumstances are introduced in the discussion about various boundaries delimiting real world domains imbued with values that have been influencing the behavior and giving meaning to human existence throughout our history. The author ranks some spatial and temporal boundaries to indicate examples of their correlation with somatic and spiritual manifestations of what is understood as viable human values.


Keywords: value changes, spatial boundaries, cultural landscapes, time frames, personality development, spiritual manifestations, negative socialization.
