A development of qualifics.
Qualifics is the science of qualities.
Qualifactics is the application of the science of qualities to fields like medicine and engineering.
Specifically, it is the ability to evoke a particular empirical pattern through qualities, such as visual and textual descriptions.
The descriptions can then be used as logical atoms of the existence of the larger state-of-affairs.
Some of these states of affairs are positive, some are negative, and some are neutral, semantic, logical, systematic, existential, etc.
In the case of negatives, the role of qualifactics is to diagnose the problem.
When the empirical facts relating to the qualifact (description) are present, then this means that if the term is negative, a problem remains.
Removing the relevance of the qualifact has the effect of removing at least some aspect of the problem.
In the case of negative qualifacts, one of the major tools is Denial.
Denying the properties of the qualifact will have the effect of simplifying how to eliminate the overall, more specific problem which relates or depends upon the qualifact.
The use of qualifacts can be analogized with experimental science.
In this case, the CONTROL is the body of theory about the existence of a problem, including NULL HYPOTHESIS about the relevance of a problem.
The INDEPENDENT is the set of specific properties which could hypothetically relate with the problem. This may include such things as medical or other specialized knowledge. These constitute a component of the qualifact, specifically the part that can inflect or deflect a problem.
The DEPENDENT VARIABLE is the exact arrangement of facts within the qualifact (overall fact of the problem), such that a problem is observed to emerge.
In its best applications, the set of independents is such that the emergent dependent variables are unpredictable, and thus highly qualifying of a problem.
In other cases, in which the qualifact is not problematic, the qualification instead involves other major interpretations, such as efficiency, evolution, complexity, or beauty.
We might interpret inflections that relate to the subject of quadriplegics.
The expression “Grollier’s Number” may be said to relate to this.
As could the expression “Eforeseed”.
And, the name “Clerence Thomas” spelled with an ‘e’ instead of an ‘a’ in the first vowel of the first name.
In each case, for various historical or psychological reasons, these expressions are what evokes quadriplegism. If these are the expressions that evoke quadriplegism, then either the intuition is wrong, or these are the things that signify that disease or disability.
Although this type of study might have a reputation for superstition, the emphasis is on pruning out the very best examples of trivial-or-better relation. The best examples look psychic, but in fact they rest on a firm foundation of knowledge. One of the evidences for this is that qualifactics does not depend on any occult systems like horoscopes or numerology.
It is important to keep in mind that specific qualifact statements may have multiple contingencies of assessment, meaning that just because it makes sense in one set of formal assumptions does not mean that its importance is universal.
Specifically, negative qualifactics may be seen as relating to symptomology specifically (such as its historical importance as influencing its chance of emersion), rather than the definable character of the phenomenon itself. Instead, the phenomenon itself is delegated by conventional medical prognosis, psychology, biology, etc.
Thus, the tool is really a highly specialized addition to a variety of disciplines dealing with such subjects as prognosis, assessment, standards, and development.
