The article presents two research plans (as a presentation and as a multidimensional content) for the semantic architectonics of personal consciousness and a "world view" as its variable-subject conceptualization. The systemic mental constructs of “semantic architectonics of personality consciousness” and “world view” are defined by the methodological analysis of the world’s image (representation) as a basic condition of mental life and the basis of mental activities. The procedural-dynamic analytic approach to the genesis of the semantic architectonics of consciousness is presented. The representative matrix model of the semantic architectonics of personal consciousness is described. We have determined and substantiated the main features of the representative matrix describing the systemic structural elements for experience reflection and accumulation. The specificity of the double (figurative and verbal) representation is revealed. The semantic architectonics of consciousness is considered as a multi-level, multi-format connected model. The “world view” representative actions are described as searches for meanings. The elements and operations of the “world view” representative matrix are determined. The hypothetical arrangement of the semantic architectonics of personal consciousness is substantiated. Its main elements are the multidimensional mnemonic context and local semantic fields. We have proposed the scheme of representative actions within the semantic architectonics of an individual’s consciousness, which reflects the logic and spiral dynamics of its functioning. We have determined that the "world view" meaningful representations as systemic variable-subject objectification of the semantic architectonics of an individual’s consciousness can be studied from four different perspectives: as a conceptual system, as a system transforming the objective world into an individual’s reality, as a set of strategies for an individual’s interaction with the environment and as a system of separate "world views". The real world is not so much explored by an individual as it is mastered and mentalized by them. The genesis of formed meanings is closely related to their regulatory actions and is manifested through the practical mediation of the basic elements of the “world view”.
