Hmm, basically, somewhere, the dynamics of language involves

- New behaviors can in the mind as well in outside activity.
- To gain a skill, you must rehearse it.
- Real, verifiable resources have linguistic articulatable
and sensorily verifiable qualities. "Free your neck" or "Feel in
control" can be articulated linguistically and verified concretely (or
- Attaining a given resource can allow a person to attain a
level of sensory accuity that previously they did not have. (Thus allowing them
to verify a further resource).
- Goals are important for verifying a result. But to
describe attaining a resource, you must put yourself into the state
immediately. Factually, success feels not different than failure. Denominalize
success into attainment of resource. Use goals to verify that you've succeeded
in the particular task of attaining the resource.
- People often have all the resources they need for desired
behaviors, behaviors like being more confident or creative. Other times, they
have the resources to learn desired skill more quickly than otherwise.
- The longer a task lasts, the more it will dependent of
larger frames of action. A task will depend on
My Resource Generator Steps
1. Articulate the desired resources
State You Goal In Positive and negative Forms
Reduce The Goal to a series of resources which would allow you to attain
Verify that these are internal resources.
Sort out the resources which are skills not yet learned
Substitute the resources that would allow to learn these skills easily.
Find past instances and situations where you have had these resources.
Create metaphors, images and analogies that capture each resource in
sequence as a single state.
Ex: The resource of "floating effortlessly through the
world" would a be resource that allows you to "remain cool under
fire" while not focusing on the "fire" in your statement.
Create a chain of resources which would allow you to attain what you wish,
starting from nothing.
Some resources you'd always have, some you'd have at the beginning, some at
the middle, some at the end.
You might want a "meta resource" which balanced several others.
Honestly imagine changing/modifying your approach
Determine what modalities the required resources have.
Remember a time when you decided to accept a new modality - think of
Make the decision to accept using a new modality even it feel awkward -
allow the quiteness and peace necesarry for this decision.
Use eye movements to imang
Consider objections or ways your present approach satisfies other
needs/goals/purposes and deal with that.
2. Create the means for learning the new skills
Create a script/carrier system for experiancing these resources
In the order in which you will need them, ask
Ask yourself "what it be like to have X", then "what it be
like to have X",
Add all the sensory language, the as if frame language, metaphors and other
Other sensory associations
Dissociated picture of self with new resource.
Associated picture of target experiance.
Anchor the new resources to a experiance in the background
of the target situation.
Repeat the script dailly, realizing that you are teaching yourself the
skills of going into this state easily and naturally.
States such as confidence can be easily generated externally by things like
seminars. But it's important to have the meta-belief that attaining these
states without stimulous is a distinct skill.
Any resistance, ask "what would it be like to imagine myself having
these resources, honestly" Keep in mind this is a pure imagination
excercise. Do not attempt to "push" resources into yourself or
See whither you sponteneously Visualize Yourself Achieving
It. Does It Feel Like I Can Really Do It?
If not, go back and articulate more resources. Remember that the extra
resources may only be accesible once you obtain the initial resources.
3. Go into the real world, see whether you have resources, see whether having
the resources allows you to attain the goal.
Modify the script for things that work well, only de-emphasizing things
that work less after some thought.
Only expect to have the resources if you have specfically used the script
and asked for the script.
You learn the skill of quickly attaining the resource, you
can't just permanently impart an ability into yourself, even if the resource
itself already exists within you.
If you don't have the resources, verify that they are internal,
articulated, existant resources for you, keep asking which resources would be

Developing NLP skill
While NLP might be seen as having objective truth, there a
severe limitations on this.
Rather than developing an infinite machinery for the
explanation of human behavior, mastering NLP is the development of a compact,
easily assecible tool-kit of behavior.
Anyone and any framework can eventually generate the parts
needed to explain and transform another person's behavior. But no person has
infinite amount of time or can go infinitely faster than another. The trick is
instead to have a "tool belt," a series of points concrete enough to
use instantly, flexible enough to use in many situations.
Notice, for example, I have a series of themes and patterns
which I previously developed, used for a period of time and then discarded.

Language Beyond Self
Basic Method/trick: As If frames
Language and conscious are not the same, the self has the
sensation that everything that it processes remains within it's circle of
intentionality. But as soon as you use language, you are evoking various
circuits, some of which create a wider array of choices and other of which
catch you within their circulation.
The "as if" frame is the simplest level of
language, in the sense that simple language is an 1-order logic relation.
Our goal is to move the mind beyond it's present processes.
A pure "intellectual" experiance is useless.
Considering different logical relations creates different
circuits. This is especially powerful in terms of the circuits of
"self" which are continually opperating.
The ability of mind to consider different frame is thus
still quite useful to us.
These are all methods that create an openning in the mind
that allows a frame to be inserted. Thus they are not a complete
"change" but are tools to open unknown process

create a process, you directly create that process.

There is no magic method to learn new skills. A person must
gain the information needed to accomplish the skill and then test, and etc.,
the skill. Moreover, the brain is very
good at doing this and often can accomplish learning new skill quickly.
Beyond this fundamental difficulty - beyond this fundamental metric, there
are things that can make things easier.
A person can become caught in a mis-calibration of a problem in a low level
and not be able to use the conscious mind's normal ability to "step
back" or evoke a recalibration.
The brain learns skill that might have little to do with conscious goals.
Removing these implicitly learned skills is dicey considering they serve other

Modern humans give up energy to the whole constructs of modern life. Living
in furniture disrupts your entire mechanism of existence, etc..
Historical Methods Of Human self-change
The most natural operation of a human is for the conscious mind to be capable
of modifying behavior to a certain degree and beyond that to be incapable -
this is simplying saying that we often model our conscious capabilities as a
circle, a region and so increasing our conscious capabilities is
Asian systems like budism, tantra, and taoism instruct humans on ways to go
back to states of primal balance - a balance equivalent to animals but much
more complete and complex since it encompasses the processes of rational
Such mechanisms of individual modification are themselves the product of a
half-complete system. Asian empires were based on a surplus but this
extra-unbalance energy could still be absorbed due to the general stasis of the
Contrast this with primal people's beliefs, which made no effort to gain
enlightment but rather attempted to live with spirits in the most convenient
Unlike christianity, tantra actually offers methods for progressively
modifying your condition. Christianity has a single stage of change - conversion.
You move between unsaved and saved and this is a far as you go. Eastern systems
offer progressive training but still present the epistemological problem of
existence as the situation to be solved.
Having plenty of time, trantra was able to discover all of the easily
available technologies of indirect self-modification.
"Don't just experiance it intellectually"
This phrase is similar to all the phrases used for indirect modification of
All person uses thought processes and impulses to achieve various goals and
satisfy various needes (thoughts and impulse are not really different, goals
and needs are not really different - each word puts emphesis on more reflexive
or more logical activity but such seperation is only relative).
Often, there is an unbalence between the processes done to achieve a given
effect and the processes that need to continue and achieve further things. A
person becomes stuck at one stage for doing one thing.
One example of a stuckness is fear of self-death - which is necesarry in
stages of life but which cannot be a guide for living.
The problems or "stucknesses" that we encounter are naturally
those of modern, isolated persons. Primal people being more self-referential
"Don't just experiance it intellectually" exhorts the listener to
involve other facilities besides logical manipulation in their processes. It
recognizes the nearly unlimited ability of people's logical-manipulative skill
to be create hypothetical processes but also that these hypotheticals do not
change other processes within a person by themselves or do not create them
The ability of the logical/manipulative facility to create any kind of
hypothetical is key for simply understanding general language - since language
can evoke any imaginable situation. And so the seperation of hypotheticals is
necesarry for protection from language. This is protection from other people's
language and protection from your own language. Otherwise, each permutation
would actually change the process that a person goes through.
Meditation - Balances and Unbalance of appetite
Civilization is the first situation where human needs
could be discovered. This is because it is the situation humans could be
systematically deprived of different things.
The point is to create a situation where needs are
satisfied within the framework of abundance of spirit.
The methods of meditation, of achieving general balance, are also the
methods of achieving specific changes.
All of these are methods of giving logical-deductive
processes more direct influence or over reflex process.
But this sensation of control is itself an illusion, since
the logical/deductive processes themselve require meaning, more direction to
make up for gaining control over a wider area. And this meaning is generated
from somewhere - outside, cultural biases, historical factors. In any case, there is no "real"
inherent meaning to such phenomenon.

A geometry of thought processes.
Key point - Backup
We articulate a geometry of thought processes. "Holding
on to ideas" "Letting go of tension" etc. Suppose that we could
be right at the point of creating that geometry. Before we actually experiance
that geometry, imagine that activity of simply creating that. Suppose that we
could actually JUST STAY THERE.

The Divided, Self Conscious/unconscious - Brain/Mind
The mind is able to model any kind of structure that you present to it.
Some structures it has more inherent facility with than others.
Structures in the brain can considered as circuits of facilities linked
A complex, a circuit, can be created by tying various
simpler circuits together. This synthetic circuit can be simultaneous or
Processes like balance, kinesthetic rhythm, visual
recognition, breath, linguistic logic and so-forth are relatively atomized
Kinesthetic motion, especially of the hand, of a synthetic
response. Under-lying orientation ("the unconscious") moves the hand
a short distances whereas volition or mobilization response ("the
conscious") guide the hand in over-all direction.
The mechanisms that might be most likely to tie the circuits
together are "consciousness" (linguistic logic and self-mobilization) and association.
Church's thesis - a turning machine or similar items is sufficient for any
kind of fixed computation. And a brain can aproximate a turning machine - very
easily if you allow the tape to be external to it and with more difficulty of
you rely on internal memory.
Some computational processes are opaque in their operations
relative to human brain activity. The human being is not directly capable of
activities like computing the sums of large numbers.
So the opperations of the brain can be ensulated in the
operation of fixed number of facilities.
The unconscious exists inherently by the fact that many process go on
simultaneously within a person's brain and just as much by the fact that these
processes cannot all be aware of each other.
Enlightenment And Information Theory (More systematic expression)
Sequence, simultaneous and commitment
Many things occur in the brain simultaneously. Transmission
time within the brain is not infinite and the process cannot be in total
contact with each other.
Awareness, for the purposes of coherent thought, must
conceptualize everything that happens in the brain as being simultaneous.
Memory is a record of sequential events. Naturally, on the
finest level of detail, it is constructed out of many decisions that X happened
after Y. The most arbitrary of this level is actions and intentions. An actual
action comes out of many factors, many reflexes. It is merely recorded as being
the result of an intention.
Commitment is the result of an action, either physical or
verbal. Commitment tends to reflect back onto internal processes.
The logic of commitment tends to generate a whole series of
illusions. Like democracy and other preference logics, there is no coherent
best within logics of preferences. Nearly any result can be reached based on
resonably close preference and
Communication begins at the first moment.
Communicating/approaching with incongruence cannot be compensated with later
approaches. There is only a single moment. This moment is continues but
only occasionally within that stream are there opportunities. And leaping to
these opportunities as a moment of letting go. But just as much, it is a matter
of letting go of further possibilities from both the past and future.
As an ideal flow of continues information, communication
spreads from a single point of information. That is to say that the servos
flowing out from a communication gain their extrapolating from the first
moment. Naturally, you cannot regain the situation of the curve by later
A random variable has continuous proportion for it's
frequency. This continuously varrying quality is alway there, in a sense even
before it begins opperating.

The ideally efficient servo is also the ideally safe servo.
Balance in feed-back is situation where it is possible for your in-put to
steer between different output.
Four situations: X to Y, Y to X, X from Y, X from Y. Four rather than Two
because Y doesn't get exactly what X.gives.
Anyway, these are streams of tokens. The streams are approximations of
several continues variables between 0 and 1. Balance would be a situation where
each variable is something like a bell curve, the stream of tokens would a
random variable which could not be coded more tightly. Since X would be
controlling Y, this would also be a situation Where Y and X attain maximum
potential energy over time. I'd put this as ideal irreducibility. And
remember that this situation is mainly a series of intuitions rather than any
hard and fast model.
X and Y could be two people or two parts of one person.
We can look at the operation of a controller on an object whose behavior is
determined by a differential equation plus an external input plus a small
random variable. The controller constantly interacts with this object but only
intermetantly has to use the object for other purposes,
then the ideal situation is keeping the object in unstable equilibrium. A point
of stability where a small motion can become a big motion
If dX/dt = F(X(t)) where X is vector, then d2X/dt2 =
F'(X(t)) X F(X(t)) using the chain rule. Anyway, If F(Y) = 0, then Y is point
of stability. If p is a small distance from Y, the question is whether X(t)
will tend to go towards p.
Unstable points are the point where X tends to move away. In anycase. The
point is that being at a point of unstable equilibrium tends to give a maximum
area of action if you must mobilize yourself. You, the controller, can exert a
minimum of effort to get a maximum of gain.
Stable points require the maximum of effort for mobilization since you must
fight against the tendency to stay at rest.
Points that are not stable require constant effort but are somewhat
inbetween as far as how much range of action they give for mobilization.
Assume a controller interactions with several systems. Then it becomes more
important for each system to be in balance because otherwise, energy for the
entire system has to be used for a particular system.
Assume there are multiple levels of controllers. If any controller from
above can seen as a system, it too should be in unstable equilibrium. It is
possible that a controller has limited number of interactions with the
controlled parts. Several Choices.
1) There is absolute limit to the energy of the controlled subsystems and
this energy is less than the maximum uncontrolled of the systems.
2) You can reach the absolute limit of energy through a single, direct
3) There is not absolute limit below the maximum energy but you cannot in
general reach the maximum energy through a single direction.
In this latter case, maximum energy is reached only over
time. The rhythm of interacting planets, each of which can be moved
simultaneously but not seperately would be an example.Moving in such a way that
the orbits have a chronological harmony sufficient to get to unstable
equilibrium would be a strategy.
Assume there mutually interacting controller/controllee pairs.
Language As Information And Switch
Our model would approximate the world as a defined by a data
with an increasing number of tables each of which has an increasing number of
columns - as you define the world, you add more information this way.
What we define as a simple sentence defines some partial
tupple of expression. To gain the further tupples of expression, we expand our
context. We must consider that while the sentence requires some context, it
also must take into account that it will be somewhat ripped out of context.
Unlike mathematics, we cannot say "this defines tupple '1'". We must
give tupples with the assumption that some will come before and some after -
the present ones are the now. "This chair" is presented within the
context of now. Now where we are on "the stack" of context as well as
where we in time. The difference between a context free grammar and a
context-sensative grammar is a context-free grammar cannot use a tape with
definite places on it. It can only push and pop. And of course it is not that
the human cannot create a tape but this this tape does not communicate well.
Now higher order expressions within language define
relations between tupples: "for all X" and "there exists
Y". Such expressions can contradict the push-down phenomenon of the
"Basic" language is already an excercise in
solving "there exists." An sentence suggests rather determining
Mind Versus Brain
We can consider things at the level of a body that develops
a universal mind - the propagation of information through information
representing adaptability. We can consider things at the level of every
possible configuration of representational activity and what allows a conscious
mind - what allows the condition of a mid-way between infinity and finiteness,
a coherent texture of certainty and uncertainty.
We can describe everything as perhaps. Atoms, symbols and
relations all appear to use finitely. We can represent infinity but does that
mean it exists? A regularity can give rise to automatic action and

Filter, reactions and stimulus
A person constantly experiances stimulous and they generally
aren't aware of stimulous directly, instead they are aware of their immediate
reactions to that stimulous.
A filter decides which of the reactions are appropriate. It
orders reactions. It can reject the results of a reaction OR tell the reaction to go back and change how it views things.
Thus filters can't be directly based on reactions - they
have to order the reactions.
There quite likely are many levels of this but there's no
use in formulating a more detailed description.
Beliefs are filters.
Identity is a filter over states and action of a person.
A larger classification of language
NLP Expanded - from physical body experiance/action
The fascinating thing is that there is broad
classification of certain bodily activities within other bodily category. The
V/A/K tripplet can contain other activities than simple input. People
"feel sleepy" but sleep changes all inputs of the body. Thus various
reflexes are contained within the "kinesthic" ruberic. And this is
the "ordinary" classification of usage rather than any forced lexical
V/A/K adjectives and noun.
