The structure of human awareness emerges directly out of man's temporal situation and his relation to being. Both his seven-dimensional human predicament (Guilt, Anxiety, Boredom, Idolatry, Despair, Alienation, and Desecration) and his seven-fold possibility for authenticity (Forgiveness, Trust, Respons-ability, Faith, New Identity, Love, Consecration) develop as an expression of his sevenfold existential relation to Time and Being.

The work that is frequently referenced in this grid is, "The Structure of Awareness," by Thomas C. Oden, 1969 (henceforth, TSOA). In fact, my "Thesis" draws largely from Oden's work and attempts to extend it to other studies.
