Go, Plavan N.
Working with Arrows: a Linguistic Guide to Active Mentation
Plavan, a former linguist who studied human perception, uses verb-centered perception models to describe "mentation by form" which Gurdjieff says every conscious thinker must know and also to show errors in Ouspensky's model of self-remembering.
Entropy and the Laws of World-creation and World-maintenance
Plavan is the author of The Gurdjieff Movements: Tableau Des Evolutions (2001, Shimin Publishing, available in Japanese only), which discusses the role and purpose of the Movements in the context of Gurdjieff's cosmology.
