Kokology is the study of kokoro which in Japanese means "mind" or "spirit". The series of Kokology books were created by Tadahiko Nagao and Isamu Saito, a professor at Rissho and Waseda Universities in Japan and an author of a number of bestselling books regarding psychology and relationships. The main focus is the analysis of the deep psyche. Using theories from Freud and Jung. Kokology Questions typically are "guided" Day Dreams or Submodalities

The design phase Edit

Very little is known about the design of kokology questions. It is possible that they begin as a set of direct plain english questions which are encoded by a "revese lookup" of dream interpretation and archetype theory targeting a specific mordalitie cluster in an Nth dimensional Structural model of the mind containing applicable axis`s see [1] for an idea of how to picture this

The narration phase Edit

While there are slight variations from person to person, the game begins by asking another person to imagine a scene or situation. The game then follows by asking the person questions about the scene. Once the scene is completely described the interpretation phase begins

The interpretation phase Edit

Once the narrator has an understanding of the scene described, he or she may (or, as "Secrets of the Cube" suggests, may not) assist the player in interpreting the scene. The general interpretation is often as follows (however, the player should not take these interpretations as gospel, as there are many individual possibilities; encourage the player to "go with your gut"): the interpreter may expand on the general meaning of the relationships between the responses. with elements of dream interpretation and archetype theory used to interpret the content this can be followed with a new narration phase.
