This work introduces the epistemological design of CHRP 512 AS which is a technology of self designed to facilitate the individuals to perceive, construct and evolve self referentially their own interpretation, through coding and programming, of the media noise transforming it into meaningful communication. CHRP 512 AS is programmed through nine binary codes which would facilitate individuals to (reframe) noise into communication according to Luhmann's self referential selection of the psychic systems selecting from the outer environment in the age of multimediality, glocality, complexity and functional differentattion. CHRP 512 AS is a technology of self created as an individual pattern of communication use whose power is methodological at the level of self referential standardization of the decision-making process through which the psychic system selects and transforms noise into communication. As a technology, it is observer dependent and strategically blind in se as the aims and goals are not internal to the program (the 512 combinations of the nine binary code agenda setting developed to select and transform noise into communication) but in the individual user's mind according to his/her evolutionary plan and his/her specific combination of his/her multiple intelligences which frame the psychic system's self-reference. The theoretical foundations of this work are mainly (although not only) rooted into Niklas Luhmann's system theory, Howard Gardner s multiple intelligence theory and in Georg Simmel's theory of social differentation.
