It's what I didn't ceased to say : inherently qualitative! (but see the definition of a "quality" in Peirce's semiotics : a quality is the contrary of a meaning)

in psychological words? related to daily concerns?

If we follow my conception, the "bad" astrologer translates astrological variables in common psychological language. The "good" astrologer would hardly know what these common psychological terms MEAN -- but he knows what IS, for instance, a square Saturn-Sun. The astrological knowledge is not only an additional way to interpret the "SAME" reality, it is, in itself, an other view on this reality.

I can't easily answer to your last message (#98) because I can't see exactly the point you want to reach. Seems to be very different material. Perhaps you could show me (us) how it could be assembled together. I've noticed also that you are using some of "my" concepts (impressionals, Ogdoad...) in a personal way, or at least in a way different of mine. It's your right. But for me, the "impressionals" are other thing, would they be also different of the sense given by D. Hume. Impressionals are chiefly these "small perceptions" defined by Leibnitz (see my text http://cura.free.fr/16peiren.html)
