The aim of this article is to illustrate a new and daring approach for the organization of some basic components from Jungian Psychology, tentatively paired with concepts from Physics and Philosophy. A most relevant status is assigned to the rational and non-rational natures of the consciousness' psychic functions. The existence of a third nature shall be proposed and justified, generating a structure that performs as a functional model of the psyche, apt to assist in the comprehension of several manifestations that hold psychological interest. That model shows stable-dynamic evolving characteristics, and working from its structure and meaning it should be possible to attain explanations for questions related to the philosophical issues of unity, duality and trinity. In the last section, the model is also speculatively suggested as a simple prototype for several instances of physical reality.
