The matrices of the Sense Machine form a system of grids with constantly repeating elements that cover all of the activities and objects of importance to humans.

There are numerous different combinations and levels, which can contain a total   of more than 10,000 units (without  synonyms). One element of a Sense Machine matrix contains a word or a short description of an object, a situation, a process,  an activity or a property that has some significance for humans.

As a basis for further discussion, we will use the following basic activities matrix.  (For an explanation, "Dimensioning Psychology –   The Psychological Basis of the Sense Machine")

The basic behaviours listed in the matrix  are linked with   key material aspects of life that initially allow for human survival:

1. getting,   2 realising one's will,   3 achieving one's goals,   4 recognition,   5 information

In the left-hand column are the row labels for basic instinctual goals nos. 1-5.
The top row serves as a column heading for the categories of options for realization (ways of realising those goals), such as heteronomous/concentric, etc..   
Fig. Matrix structure

Each combination basic matrix (and all subordinate basic matrices and sub-matrices) replicate the scheme of the top-level matrix. This means that they have the same dimensioning, with instinctual goals for the rows and options for realization for the columns.

When we step one level down,   the matrices multiply quasi with themselves, exponentially increasing the number of elements with each progressive level.
Each basic instinctual goal (superordinate) is combined with every subordinate basic instinctual goal.
The principle is that one element of a matrix at a higher level forms the context for the subsequent matrix level.

This context in turn modifies the content of the subordinate level in such a way that the content, otherwise determined by the same dimensioning of all the matrices, is represented from a different perspective (context).

This replicates the way human thought starts with general things and then differentiates experience, objects, etc. by ever more complex distinctions.
