Projective Awareness Model (image) Université de Genève Share Print E-Mail Caption Projective Awareness Model: a. The field of consciousness incorporates beliefs and preferences using projective geometry and minimizing free energy in order to motivate action. b. The subject imagines: option A (buying an expensive cake) and option B (making the cake him or herself) to reach the imagined situation 2 where the children at home are happy. Options A and B are very similar: both bring pleasure, but A demands an irreversible expense and B requires a one-off effort. The anticipated final free energy is minimal for B. The subject chooses B as the scenario to be realized.
