Hello, Matt! Glad to meet you.
I'm looking at this list.
I'm thinking that
"Prerational" would be the DQ awareness as described by Pirsig, the
"hot stove" awareness.
"Arational" is the DQ (prerational) awareness having been subsequently
evaluated by intellect and a new intellectual pattern being created in
one person's mind. This word also seems to contain the connotation that
it is spoken from the point of view of a social judge that approves of
the new intellectual pattern (or insight).
"Irrational" would be the DQ (prerational) awareness having been
subsequently evaluated by intellect and a new intellectual pattern
being created in one person's mind. This word also seems to contain the
connotation that it is spoken from the point of view of a social judge
that DISapproves of the new intellectual pattern (insight).
If these map at all, "postrational" seems to be of a different type
entirely, perhaps one in which the "arational" is not simply judged by
social, but is valued, repeated on the social level, forming a static
social pattern to latch down the insight of the original DQ event.
