The paper analyses the relation of Spatial Grasp Language (SGL) and the developed Spatial Grasp Technology (SGT) to some higher-level psychological and philosophical concepts. By providing basics of SGL and SGT and details of their implementation, it then discusses possible relation of these concepts to some gestalt theory laws like the Law of Proximity, Law of Good Gestalt, and Figure/Ground Expression. The paper then shows how to organize a sort of distributed and global awareness under SGT on an example of a dynamic swarm of chasing units, which can provide increased operational capability of the swarm and be practically used for organization of collective behaviour of multiple robotic units exploring unknown and harsh environments. The paper also mentions how SGT may relate to much higher mental concepts like perception, consciousness, and even soul.
