Psychosemantics studies the genesis, structure, and functioning of an individual or collective consciousness and its major element, the meaning. The last can be fixed in the words of a natural language as well as signs, symbols, pictures, and so on in their meaning invariant to different individuals of the same culture in a socially scaled sense. To have a chance to compare sensations and to simulate (represent) the surrounding reality, an individual needs to “construct” a certain semantic space (mental map of reality) and define metric and system of coordinates. Definition of semantic spaces is the mathematical method to construct a mental map as a system that simulates an “objective reality” in terms of mathematical structures (arbitrary sets with the relations defined on them)

Keywords: Mental map, Object-based modeling, Psychosemantics, Rigidity and intensity of sensations, Semantic space.
