This exploratory paper begins with an overview of a multidisciplinary problem of behavior modeling and correlation of different behaviors. It looks at many possible applications of such technology and proposes some novel directions for future research. From the security point of view the paper proposes and explores some novel behavioral biometrics and research paths as well as some universal descriptors of behavior in general. It concludes with an analysis of how behavior can be influenced by the environment in particular location of the individual engaging in the behavior.
