This article discusses the logical and cognitive premises of verbal world modelling and focuses on the phenomena of irrationally triggered categorization and myth-oriented semiosis as the fundamental mechanisms of construing alternative realities. The paper demonstrates the reconstruction of interpretative mythic axioms via the etymological analysis of the designations of WORLD in different Indo–European languages. The paper proposes a formal model of a possible world created on the basis of mythic concepts, in addition to a multi-vectored algorithm for the configuration of a possible world. The article also proposes a typology of possible worlds which constitute a “multiverse”. The paper focuses on the patterns of logical operations and cognitive procedures responsible for secondary designation as “sense-creating” and “world-creating” acts. These patterns correspond to the functioning and interaction of open systems, while the sequence of operational steps follows the logic of assembling a functional construal.
