Happy Brain Life

IN THE NAME OF ALLAH – THE SOURCE OF MERCY – THE MOST MERCIFUL

Happy Brain, Happy Life

If you want to be happy for the rest of your life, make sure you keep your brain happy. Why? Because being happy matters more to your brain than you might think. In fact, feeling pleasure can be so stimulating for your brain that it is primed to respond to pleasure in a way that reinforces pleasure. Your brain offers rewards to steer you on a pathway to happiness, and you can offer your brain rewards that will encourage it to become even more finely tuned and to grow well into your old age. Other reasons to want a happy brain: Negative mood variance disturbs your interaction with your environment, affecting your ability to perceive, remember, and reinforce existing or create new neural connections, while being happy improves your ability to be more cognitively alert and productive. Other than being much more fun to be around, being happy:

Stimulates the growth of nerve connections
Improves cognition by increasing mental productivity
Improves your ability to analyze and think
Affects your view of surroundings
Increases attentiveness
Leads to more happy thoughts
Happy people are more creative, solve problems faster, and tend to be more mentally alert.

The Power of Positive Thoughts

Your thoughts form your character, how you operate in the world, how far you travel mentally, physically, and spiritually. You are what you think you are, and all of your actions proceed from thought. Your inner thoughts will always be reflected in your outer circumstances, because self-generated changes in your life are always preceded by changes in the way you think about something.

As far as your brain, every thought releases brain chemicals. Being focused on negative thoughts effectively saps the brain of its positive forcefulness, slows it down, and can go as far as dimming your brain’s ability to function, even creating depression. On the flip side, thinking positive, happy, hopeful, optimistic, joyful thoughts decreases cortisol and produces serotonin, which creates a sense of well-being. This helps your brain function at peak capacity.

Happy thoughts and positive thinking, in general, support brain growth, as well as the generation and reinforcement of new synapses, especially in your prefrontal cortex (PFC), which serves as the integration centre of all of your brain-mind functions. In other words, your PFC not only regulates the signals that your neurons transmit to other brain parts and to your body, it allows you to think about and reflect upon what you are physically doing. In particular, the PFC allows you to control your emotional responses through connections to your deep limbic brain. It gives you the ability to focus on whatever you choose and to gain insight about your thinking processes. The PFC is the only part of your brain that can control your emotions and behaviours and help you focus on whatever goals you elect to pursue. It helps you grow as a human being, change what you wish to change, and live life the way you decide!

Why Optimism Leads to Greater Happiness

Neuroscientists have discovered that people who have a more cheerful disposition and are more prone to optimism generally have higher activity occurring in their left PFC. But that’s a brain explanation. Interestingly, behavioural scientists have observed fascinating differences between optimists and pessimists. Optimism, for example, involves highly desirable cognitive, emotional, and motivational components. Optimistic people tend to have better moods, to be more persevering and successful, and to experience better physical health. One factor may be simply that optimists attribute good events to themselves in terms of permanence, citing their traits and abilities as the cause, and bad events as transient (using words like “sometimes” or “lately”), or the fault of other people. In addition, optimists: Lead happy, rich, fulfilled lives. Spend the least amount of time alone, and the most time socialising.

Have good relationships
Have better health habits
Have stronger immune systems
Live longer than pessimists

On the flip side, pessimistic people explain good events by citing transient causes, such as moods and effort, and bad events as permanent conditions (using words like “always” or “never”). Pessimists: Automatically assume setbacks are permanent, pervasive, and due to personal failings are eight times more likely to be depressed than optimists. Perform worse at school and work. Have rockier interpersonal relationships Die sooner than optimists.

According to a researcher, unhappy people spend hours comparing themselves to other people, both above and below themselves on the happiness scale; happy people didn’t compare themselves with anyone. The good news is that you can use your mind to train your brain to tamp down the negative thoughts that lead to pessimism, while ramping up the types of positive thoughts that lead to optimism. You can be the master of the neuronal changes that will lead to greater happiness, and the rewiring starts in those teensy miracles known as your brain cells, or neurons. Even if depression runs in your family, you have the capability of improving the way your brain functions, of setting up neuronal roadblocks and diminishing the neuronal patterns linked to negative thinking. You may not be able to eradicate a genetic disposition towards depression, but you can greatly reduce its impact and its reoccurrence.

Negative Thinking, Negative Balance

Negative thinking slows down brain coordination, making it difficult to process thoughts and find solutions. Feeling frightened, which often happens when focused on negative outcomes, has been shown to decrease activity in your cerebellum, which slow the brain’s ability to process new information limiting your ability to practice creative problem solving. Additionally, the fear factor impacts your left temporal lobe, which affects mood, memory, and impulse control. Your frontal lobe, particularly your PFC, decides what is important according to the amount of attention you pay to something and how you feel about it. Thus, the more you focus on negativity, the more synapses and neurons your brain will create that support your negative thought process.

Your hippocampus provides the context of stored memories, which means the emotional tone and description your mind creates can potentially rewire your brain by creating stronger neuronal pathways and synapses. What you think and feel about a certain situation or thing can become so deeply ingrained that you will have to work hard to dismantle the negative connections and rewire your brain in order to be less afraid, to think positively, to believe that dreams can come true, and to trust that your efforts will be successful.

Train Your Brain to Think More Positively

One of the oldest precepts of neuroscience has been that our mental processes (thinking) originate from brain activity: that our brain is in charge when it comes to creating and shaping our mind. However, more recent research has shown that it can also work the other way around: that focused, repetitive mental activity can affect changes in your brain’s structure, wiring, and capabilities.

The actions we take can literally expand or contract different regions of the brain, firing up circuits or tamping them down. The more you ask your brain to do, the more cortical space it sets up to handle the new tasks. It responds by forging stronger connections in circuits that underlie the desired behaviour or thought and weakening the connections in others. Thus, what you do and what you think, see, or feel is mirrored in the size of your respective brain regions and the connections your brain forms to accommodate your needs.

What does all this mean? It means that what we think, do, and say matters; that it affects who we become on the outside, the inside, and in our brain. Mostly, it means that you can retrain your brain to be more positive.

Start by thinking happy thoughts, looking on the bright side, and refocusing your brain when negative thoughts occur. Your mind has the ability to determine how your brain thinks about what happens in your life. Use it to your own advantage to reframe events and think positively.

Attitude

IN THE NAME OF ALLAH – THE SOURCE OF MERCY – THE MOST MERCIFUL

Everything can be taken from a person but one thing: the last of human freedoms is to choose one's attitudes in any given set of circumstances, to choose one's own way. Attitude is a choice. You could be faced with a thousand problems, many or most over which you have absolutely no control. However, there is always one thing you are in complete and absolute control of and that is your own attitude.

When you surrender control of your attitude to what appears to be a negative situation, you will react to that situation. More often than not, reacting is inappropriate. On the other hand, if you were to remain objective, you would respond to the situation appropriately, thereby creating a winning situation.

If attitude is such an important word, why do so few people understand it? To be honest, it wasn't until I was in my late 70s when I finally understood its full impact. All through my teens and into my early adult life, I can't tell you the number of times that I heard, "if you'd just change your attitude, you would do a lot better." In retrospect I can easily see the cause of my problem. I didn't know what attitude was, let alone know how to change it!

Attitude is the composite of your thoughts, feelings and actions. Your conscious mind controls feeling and ultimately dictates whether your feelings will be positive or negative by your choice of thoughts, then your body displays those choices through action and behaviour.

Attitude is actually a creative cycle that begins with your choice of thoughts. You do choose your thoughts and that choice is where your attitude originates. As you internalize ideas or become emotionally involved with your thoughts, you create the second stage in forming an attitude; you move your entire being; mind and body into a new "vibration." Your conscious awareness of this vibration is referred to as "feeling". Your feelings are then expressed in actions or behaviours that produce the various results in your life. Positive results are always the effect of a positive attitude. 

Attitude and results are inseparable. They follow one another like night follows day. What I mean by that is: one is the cause, the other, the result. There is a term we use to distinguish this "cause and effect" relationship, it is called The Law of Cause and Effect. Simply stated, if you think in negative terms, you will get negative results; if you think in positive terms you will achieve positive results. A person is what they think about all day long. The results you achieve in life are nothing more than an expression of your thoughts, feelings, and actions. Take a close look at your life and evaluate the results you are achieving in various areas. See if you are able to relate your attitude to your results.

Winning and losing are opposite sides of the same coin and that coin is attitude. There are many things wrong in this world; unfortunately that is all some people are able to see. Those who view the world in this light are often unhappy and somewhat cynical. Usually, their life is one of lack and limitation and it almost appears as if they move from one bad experience to another. I know people who are like this and I'm certain you do as well. It would appear as if they were born with a streak of bad luck and it has followed them around their whole life. These individuals are quick to blame circumstances or other people for their problems, rather than accepting responsibility for their life and their attitude.

Conversely, there are others who are forever winning and living the good life. They are the real movers and shakers who make things happen. They seem to go from one major accomplishment to another. They're in control of their life; they know where they are going and know they will get there. They are the real winners in life and their wins are a matter of choice.

You can experience that kind of life as well, you only need to decide. Making that simple decision is the first step to a new life. Act as if it were impossible to fail, and I challenge you to do so. By simply becoming aware that you can choose your thoughts each and every day, you will change your entire outlook. You have the power to choose an abundant life no matter your circumstances. That active choice will allow other positive people and opportunities to be attracted into your life.  


Don't wait to experience all the wonderful things the universe has in store for you. Start today by working on your attitude and welcome the abundant life that you were meant to lead. For some people it can seem as if their mind has a life of its own. Despite their best efforts, they find it difficult, or even impossible, to make lasting change in their feelings and emotions. The following ideas, tools, and techniques can help you gain mastery of your mind once and for all—in a way that's easy, powerful, and fun. Can You Really Do It?

I have been passionate about MCS (Mind Control System) since stumbling into my first workshop. At the time I was very quiet, shy, withdrawn. I was also terrified of public speaking or even having an opinion. I simply thought that was my "lot in life," my innate personality, and there was nothing I could really do to change it.

What follows are some of the exercises and coaching questions that literally transformed my life forever in the space of a few short weeks. They can transform your life, too. We will explore:

These easy questions to help you gain mastery of your mind

How to make changes stick by identifying what potentially blocks your ability to make the changes you desire. The secrets of eliminating self-sabotage forever. How to change negative emotions and break old patterns and habits. Ways to transform your mindset for a more rewarding life, simple but effective tools and resources you can put into practice straight away to start changing and transforming your mindset, emotions, and life. 

How to Gain Mastery of Your Mind 

These key questions can get your transformation off to a powerful start: What specifically do you want?

Take some time to really sit with this question. Many people spend a lot of time focusing on what they don't want, rather than putting their attention and energy on what they do want.

Let's use the example of public speaking. When asked, "What do you want?" you may find yourself replying, "I don't want to be nervous. I don't want to have palpitations. I don't want sweaty palms. I don't want to feel like a rabbit in the headlights and be frozen with fear. I don't want to completely forget what I am going to say. I don't want to feel nauseous or sick."

All of these statements firmly put the focus on what you don't want, which means neurologically you start to create the very thoughts and feelings you are seeking to avoid. What stops you from achieving what you want?

If what stops you comes down to beliefs, negative emotions, past experiences, or previous failures, it is important to get to the root of the issue so you can eliminate the cause once and for all.

Listen for tell-tale signs in responses such as "I can't…," "I'm not capable…," and "It will never…"

How will you know when you have achieved the changes or goal you desire?

Answering this question will automatically start to take your mind into the future and help you create the steps and actions necessary to achieve your goal.

Make Changes That Stick

To get started, focus on these four key aspects: See beyond the issue and identify your big "why." Why do you want to make changes or achieve your goal?

Identify your "values" and, ultimately, what is important to you. Ask yourself: "What is important to me about x?" Keep answering that question until you hit a void, where you run out of thoughts or things to say. Then ask: "What else is important to me about x?" Keep going beyond two or three voids. 

If your changes are not linked to your values, it can be difficult to sustain them over time or as you go through the learning curve. Ensure your "beliefs" are in alignment with the changes you now want to make. Put a "support system" in place, and build in some accountability. Accountability is a close relation to action. A support system will ensure your good intentions translate into action and ultimately results.

How to Eliminate Self-Sabotage

Rather than becoming upset or frustrated if things do not go according to plan, view it as a form of feedback. Sabotage usually infers there is some kind of internal conflict, the side effect of which causes you to get in your own way and sabotage your efforts. People sometimes describe the conflict in terms of "parts." Part of you wants to do X while the other part wants to do Y, thus causing an internal tug of war.

One of the secrets of eliminating self-sabotage is to discover the underlying intention of both sides or parts because this will help uncover what drives the internal saboteur. What you are listening for as you explore the opposing parts is called the "positive intention." Take the example of smoking, eating, or drinking too much.

Typical answers when uncovering the positive intention may include: "It helps me to relax/unwind/feel good/get attention/have an excuse to indulge myself." The potential underlying positive intention may be the desire to be happy, relax, feel comforted, or have peace of mind. If you simply try to remove the disruptive behaviour, the mind may rebel because you are also removing a necessary and vital function, which is the ability to unwind or relax, etc. The part of your mind responsible for attaining what you want will often use the path of least resistance and go for immediate gratification, rather than thinking through the longer-term consequences.

To change this pattern the question becomes: "What else can you do to unwind and relax without overeating/smoking/drinking too much?" Come up with ecological ideas that serve the same purpose but can be done in a healthier way.

Change Negative Emotions 

Essentially emotions just "are." Each emotion has its function, and there will be times where emotions such as fear, anger, sadness, or guilt are appropriate. Problems arise when an emotion has outlived its purpose yet still remains in place. In MCS we refer to this as being in a stuck or unresourceful state.

Perceptual Positions Exercise

A great way to take a step back and change the feelings or the emotions in the moment and to stop the sense of being on autopilot is to literally step out of yourself to gain a new perspective. Next time a sabotaging behaviour or negative emotion creeps up on you: Stop… breathe… then imagine floating above so you are looking down on yourself. Imagine you can see the whole situation from a bird's-eye view. Ask: What else can I do in this moment? What additional choices do I have? From this vantage point, what ideas or solutions come to mind?

To take it a step further, imagine seeing yourself and the situation from someone else's perspective or point of view (we call this "second position") and ask: What do they suggest as they look at me and my situation? How does it look, feel, or seem from their point of view? What would an objective third party suggest or think if watching you and observing the whole situation?

Just sit with this for a few moments and see what comes to mind. From the bird's-eye view and second position perspective, you will almost magically come up with ideas other than your own! Also, being above (or "Meta" to) the situation and your feelings automatically dissociates you from the feelings so you can think more clearly and strategize. This technique is great for business meetings or situations where is it not possible to physically leave the situation in order to think or compose yourself.

Breaking Old Patterns and Habits

Here are some very simple yet powerful ways to break old patterns that you can put into practice immediately.

Ask: "What did I learn?" Understanding what there is to learn means you can start to move on from old habits.
Ask: "What will I do differently next time to get a different or better outcome or result?"

This allows you to start unconsciously building new strategies and encourages the formation of alternative solutions or ideas. When you feel or notice old patterns coming on, create a break state or "pattern interrupt." Change your physiology, move, shake it out, breathe, or sit/stand up straight, and change your internal focus to better align with what you want to feel.

Understand Your Strategies and Convincers

To better understand your habits and patterns, identify what is called a "convincer" strategy. For example, I have a "three times convincer." Generally speaking, when I learn something new, I will run through it three times before I neurologically "get it." Before I discovered this, I was convinced there was no point in continuing something if it did not work after the first or second try. Some people have a convincer related to a period of time. Recall learning how to use a new gadget. If you have an instant convincer strategy, you learn it once and you get it. On the other hand, it may take you a longer period of time. If so, set milestone goals so you can see you are making progress along the way. To make personal change and transformation easier, understand and work with your innate strategies initially. Then, if you realize the strategy is not working for you, set about changing it.

Strategy Elicitation

To identify what leads to a particular habit or behaviour, it is important to identify the underlying sequence of events or strategy. Here's how: Think of a habit you would like to break. Identify a specific time it occurred, and notice the first thing you did. What happened next? Then what happened after that?

Keep going until you have identified the full chain of events. For example, when first deciding to have a cigarette, you might look at the clock and determine it is time for a cigarette. You then imagine how satisfying it will feel in that moment. You might think about the pros and cons of smoking and then hear yourself say, "Well, just a quick one won't hurt, because I've been smoking less this week." You then get up and have a cigarette.

Going through this process will help you elicit your strategy or the internal sequence of events leading you to a certain outcome, in this case, having a cigarette. Once you have identified a strategy that no longer works, you can change it. As soon as you notice the strategy starting to run, say something silly to yourself (perhaps in a Mickey Mouse or cartoon voice): "Bunkles, balloons, and cat in the hat, what are you doing?" Going through this process a few times gives you the opportunity to consciously assess what you are about to do and instead make a different choice.

Transforming Your Mindset

Everything shared so far the questions, contemplations, games, and exercises can subtly, but powerfully, start to change and transform your mindset. Here are a few more things you can do to kick negative thoughts out of your life forever. Change the Equation: Rather than looking at what is wrong, move your thoughts to what is going right and what you actually want to achieve. This subtle internal shift will future pace your thinking and move you into solution focus mode. Get from Effect to Cause: Move away from dwelling on whose fault something is or how unfair things are. Identify instead what you can do to take some control and start making changes.

Change the Context: Widen your perspective or frame of reference and ask, "What else could this mean?" When you change the context, it will shift your internal response. For example, rain is neither good nor bad, it just is. You will see it as good if you love your garden and there has been a dry spell, but you will see it as bad if you are on your way to a garden party or BBQ.

Exercise: Take a challenging situation or problem and transform your thinking. Ask: How else can I think about or see this situation? What else could it mean?

Get What You Need to Learn: Notice where things did not go as planned, and consider what you could do differently should a similar situation arise in the future. Also, identify where things did go well to help build your success strategy for the future.

Change Your Inner Dialogue: Just for a day, change your inner dialogue from "I can't" to "I can" and from "I will" to "I am." Many people reinforce old habits with their internal self-chatter and unsupportive thinking. As you become more aware of your thoughts, you can consciously change them. Very soon it will become automatic, and your mind will autocorrect itself.

Room for Growth: Move from black and white/all-or-nothing thinking to creating a kaleidoscope of colour. Give yourself time and scope for new behaviours to develop, and allow the space for the changes to become established.

Re-evaluate Your Beliefs: 

Beliefs can potentially change the world. Before May 6, 1954, the world did not believe it possible for a human being to run a 4-minute mile. It was considered an unbreakable barrier, an invisible force, the confines of which kept people from even considering the possibility. Then on May 6, 1954, Roger Banister ran a mile in four minutes. Within a couple of weeks of the achievement, the seemingly impossible record was broken again and again. This newly created belief allowed others to both meet and surpass their previous limitations.

Exercise: Identify someone who has achieved what you want to do. You may know them personally, or it may be you simply model them from afar. Knowing it is possible can dramatically change and transform your thinking and beliefs. Celebrate Your Successes: Reinforce and celebrate the behaviours and habits you do want. Every time you make progress, give yourself a metaphorical pat on the back. Congratulate your inner mind and it will do more of the same for you. Before you know it, you will be living your new habits with ease. Taking the time to congratulate yourself and acknowledge even small improvements and changes in your behaviour encourages what I call the snowball effect. Each small change and step builds momentum, and before you know it, changes are happening faster and more naturally than you could have possibly imagined. That is the beauty of MCP the changes can often be fast, seamless, and almost sneak up on you without your notice. When you stop and look back, you will likely say, "Wow, look how far I've come!"

The amazing thing is you do not even realize how seamless and automatic the changes are, because they start to feel part of your everyday life. This is wonderful when you take the time to notice it happening. Every once in a while stop, take stock, and get feedback. Identify where your mindset is now different or how you handled a situation better.

My parting words: "Notice what you notice." When you set your purpose, which is to notice the magic, change, and transformation that is taking place, that is exactly what starts to happen.

The Disc

IN THE NAME OF ALLAH – THE SOURCE OF MERCY – THE MOST MERCIFUL

If you increase your communication skills and if you were to assist others to increase their communication skills. Just imagine the impact that would have on all your relationships.

Perhaps, you’d like a deeper connection with your spouse, or increased communication skills could really help you if you don’t yet have a spouse but would like one. Or perhaps, you’d like more money in your life, or the relationships that you have at work or in your business with your prospects or customers is what’s important to you. Or it could be as simple as you’d like a deeper relationship with some of your friends. Whatever it is; this technology can really assist.

How can I be so sure? Well firstly it has a profound effect on my own life with every person that I come into contact with. But secondly the proof is really in the pudding because of the hundreds of people that I’ve shared this information with.

I work with a small financial services company, and one of the my colleagues told me that he hates his manager.

We went through the same material that I’m about to share with you. And just a few weeks later when speaking about exactly the same person, he said “Now I respect him.” In a few weeks he’s gone from ‘hate, a very very strong word to having respect. So that’s the kind of shifts that can happen…It’s all about the way we communicate internally and externally.

Lance Armstrong said it best in his auto biography ‘It’s not about the bike.’ It’s about your communication skills, your communication skills with other people and your communication skills with yourself, that internal dialogue. Because that, my friends effects your fears, it effects your beliefs and ultimately your end results.

So to start this journey I’m going to share a model that has transformed hundreds of people just like you. I personally use this every day of my life and I’ve seen tremendous results from applying what you are about to learn.

Relationship is an area of life that is much, much bigger than most people give credit for. When we think about relationships, often we think about our spouses or perhaps our friends. And What I’d like to do is share a quick story and all you have to do is open your eyes and your heart to feel how much relationships really play a part in your life. 

It’s a hot summer Sunday morning and Mo wakes up reluctantly. It’s early and after his breakfast, shower and getting dressed, he goes into see his two children; They are still sleeping so he gently kisses their foreheads goodbye and walks to the kitchen. His wife of seven years is standing in her pyjamas holding Mo’s lunch. He smiles at her, takes the lunch box and says “Thanks I’ll see you tonight”. 

As Mo jumps in his car, his neighbour from number eight waves hello and from across the road, Mrs. Hoot looks out her window to see if there’s anything happening to gossip about. Mo misses most of the traffic as its only 6:54 am but one car pulls out of a side street and cuts him off. Mo breaks hard and yells and screams at the other driver, calling him in French. Mo is really pissed and then Mo’s mum, calls to remind him about his dad’s birthday dinner tomorrow night. Mo doesn’t get on with his dad and moans to his mum about feeling obligated to go.

He lets out a deep sigh, hangs up the phone and turns into the car park. Mo gets to work at 7:52 am only to find that a report that was promised to him isn’t there. He calls his assistant immediately and completely loses it. Almost crying, She promises Mo the report will be there in an hour and the day begins.

Why am I sharing the beginning of this story? Well, Mo has gone through different relationships by 8:00 am on Sunday morning. How did they affect him? Did it serve him to react the way he did? Could he have responded more effectively, so he and others felt OK?

How about you? How many people do you come into contact with most days? And how do you react sometimes? One of the secrets to success is our ability to relate to all different types of people that we come in contact with. Whether you want to improve your financial position; have a better social life; increase the quality of your intimate or family relationships; or perhaps you’d like a special connection to God or even to create harmony within yourself; a massive part of those areas are more in the quality of your relationships.

How come? Well, the quality of your relationship with your prospects/customers will determine how well your business goes and how much money you make. If you spend quality time with your spouse and family those relationships will grow. Spending time by yourself can only increase how comfortable you are in your own skin and therefore improve the relationship with yourself. And what I am about to tell you will really help you in all areas of relationship if you apply it. 

This science goes back to the early 1920’s. Professor William Marsden did all the background research to what is known today as DISC. DISC is a simple yet profound Behavioural model that was the first of its kind and I believe to be one of the best. What Marsden found was that everyday people, just like you and me, behave differently. Not necessarily good or bad; right or wrong; just differently. Here’s how… 

As you look at the slide I’d like you to take your eyes up to the top line and look at the very first word. It says perceives. Now bring your eyes down to the bottom line and look at the first word there. it’s also perceives. Look at the paragraph on left hand side of the circle… what’s the first line? You guessed it, it’s perceives. And the paragraph on the right hand side… what’s the first word? Don’t even need to ask you… it’s also perceives. 

Why am I sharing this? Well, Professor William Marsden, one of the first things he found in his research, is that all Behaviour is down to perception. It’s how you and I perceive somebody else’s Behaviour. On the right hand side of the circle, that statement there says… perceives a favourable environment. So influence and steadiness, that you can see on the right, are what Marsden found tend to be in a favourable environment. Now think about this for a moment. If you were in a favourable environment… maybe you’re at home right now, maybe you’re sitting in your office or whatever it may be… something that you’re used to, if that’s a favourable environment, how do you feel? Well, often you’ll feel safe; you may feel secure; you may feel fairly open because you’re not being threatened. It’s a favourable environment. Makes sense? 

But, if you have a look on the left hand side of the circle, it says, perceives an unfavourable environment. So dominance and conscientiousness tend to be environments that are not favourable to them. That means, often they would like to change the environment. Because if you again are in an environment that is not favourable, let’s say your boss calls you in to the office or a friend or spouse wants to have an uncomfortable conversation with you, the perception could be that that’s an unfavourable environment.

So how might you act? Well, you could be more reserved. You could be more outspoken. Some people when they are uncomfortable, speak outwardly. You might be more guarded. All of those types of things… emotions may come up… those feelings may come up when you’re in an environment that’s perceived as unfavourable whereas if it’s perceived as a favourable environment the feelings and emotions are very different.

If we look above the circle to the top line there, dominance and influence perceive self as more powerful than the environment. So let’s have a look at dominance for a second. We’ve just agreed that they perceive themselves usually in an unfavourable environment. And now what we are looking at is they see themselves as more powerful than that environment. So if it’s an unfavourable environment, and they see themselves as more powerful than that environment, doesn’t it make sense that they feel the have the power to change that environment? And sometimes they do this through force. They can tend to be quite direct in their communication. They enjoy and look for change. 

A friend of mine is predominately high-D Behaviour, and we could be at a dinner party and the group discussing an issue or something, and sometimes everyone maybe in agreement with this issue and what my friend will do, he will say something just to rock the boat, just to create some discussion. Because they like… high-D Behaviours tend to like… a little bit of confrontation, a little bit of discussion, a little bit of rocking the boat. This can be very strange if you’re not, or you don’t have much, high-D behaviour in you. But that’s what they like because they like the challenge of that debate.

How about high-I behaviour? Well, high-I Behaviour again feels that they are more powerful than their environment but they’re in a favourable environment. So do you think they want to change it, usually? No. But let’s say that they did. Generally they don’t have to force it because they’ve got the communication skills to be able to create that change. If somebody was talking to a high-I Behaviour and they were being negative, the high-I Behaviour person would tend to use their verbal skills to attempt to create change in that person. Very often high-I is optimistic. They’re quite motivated as well. They’re not very good at detail… not very good at detail at all. They’re very much people orientated. 

That’s actually a good point the right hand side of the circle there, its much more people orientated and the left hand side of the circle is much more task orientated. So if you were giving a compliment for instance to a high-D Behaviour you would compliment them on what they’ve done or what they’ve achieved because that’s a task. Whereas with the high-I Behaviour person you could compliment them on what they were wearing or a piece of jewellery that they have or anything really...  that high-I Behaviour love to feel recognised and look for significance as that’s much more people orientated. 

On to the S Behaviour, if you notice they’re in a favourable environment and also feel less powerful than the environment. So, in reference to change, firstly do you think they’ll want to change? No. Secondly, do you think they can change? They could, but they’d find it exceptionally difficult. S-type of Behavioural styles tends to be very, very loyal. They’re very patient, often quite passive, great team players and very, very dependable. If I’m talking to somebody who’s predominately is high-S Behaviour, they don’t tend to like change at all, especially, quick change where the high-D Behaviour would love that. So it’s a bit like sometimes you have to slow the way you speak down if you speak very quickly. And also I use words like “step by step” or “at your own pace”. You’ve got to be non-confrontational. High-S Behaviour hate with a passion, confrontation and things like, complaining in a restaurant about a meal or even a coffee or something like that can be a really big deal to somebody that’s high-S Behavioural style, whereas, to one of the other Behavioural styles that may not be such a big deal. So slowly, slowly take your time don’t rush them. 

And then finally, high-C Behavioural people tend to be very factual. They can be very reserved. If you have a look at the circle again, they see themselves often in an unfavourable environment and less powerful than that environment. What they’re often looking for is, what’s wrong in that environment. So for example, if you happen to be high-C Behaviour listening to an audio program, you might be looking at the pronunciation or the grammar whereas high-I, not detailed at all, is not going to look at that. They’ll be listening to the voice and the passion that the person has and it’s exciting to them, whereas high-C Behaviour is much more analysing and evaluating. So when you talk to somebody who is high-C Behaviour you’ve got to be accurate and realistic and be prepared. High-C Behaviour people are great at research. They love it. These are the guys and girls that read all the manuals. I’ve got a couple of colleages who are high-C Behavioural style and if they had bought a product and I’m interested in that line of product, I know that will be the best because they will have done the research. 

If I was going to summarise with giving each Behavioural style an animal, I would say that the animal for the high-D is like a bull, not much patience and when they’re not happy they’re charging. So you’ve got to be very, very precise when you’re talking. Talk about the bottom line; get to the point very quickly. 

High-I Behaviour would be a peacock. It’s a bit like “look at me, look at me”. Often you can tell high-I Behaviour from what they wear. They can wear bright or flashy clothes or jewellery or might have a funky hair style. Maybe they’ll drive a car that stands out. 

High-S would be a dove, a beautiful animal, that’s very loyal. The challenge for high-S Behaviours is often they don’t speak out when they’re not happy. You can easily offend somebody that’s high-S Behaviour and if they speak up, which is very rare, they tend to bottle it inside and then over a period of time that builds up and then they can lose it. 

And then finally high-C Behaviour would be an owl. They are very wise, very methodical and very much a thinker. I do go into this in more depth, a lot more depth actually, in the social part of the life circle. But for now just remember this, there’s a golden rule and that golden rule you may have heard of. It says, treat people the way that you want to be treated. Have you heard that? Do you agree with it? If you said yes, then I’m going to challenge you. I’ll tell you why. If I treat you the way that I want to be treated, I run the risk of relating to you ineffectively. And that is to three-quarters of the population or the other three styles of the DISC model. What the golden rule should be, is treat people the way that they want to be treated. Makes sense? Fantastic! And if you’re adapting to the other person who’s different to you and they’re adapting to you, it’s got to be a win-win. 

Now if you happen to watch Sex in the City… not that I do but a friend of mine told me… yeah right, I was told I’d learn a lot about women and to be honest it was scary. But in Sex in the City, there are four main girls that actually are all very different. That’s why with the female viewers you can always relate with at least one of the characters. If you do watch the program, who would be out of those four do you think would be high-D Behavioural style? It’s Samantha. She’s often direct blunt. She’s up for a challenge. She wants change, all that kind of stuff. 

How about high-I? Remember “look at me, look at me”. It may not be that obvious however look at how many shoes she has and some of her outfits. She looks amazing. It’s Carrie. She would definitely be high-I. 

Then we’ve got high-S. Not necessarily spoken up; a little bit more reserved. Who would that be? Only two left, yes its Charlotte for sure. And then the final one, it’s not black and white here, because she’s got a bit of D in her as well but Miranda would be high-C. She looks for what’s not right in a certain situation. She’s also very much of a thinker. All makes sense?

And for you guys and girls that don’t watch Sex in the City, high-D would be Jack Nicholson from A Few Good Men. Remember that? He said, “I have neither the time nor the inclination” that’s high-D. They don’t have time they cannot be bothered lets in-out. “You want answers, I want the truth”… “You can’t handle the truth”… that’s a high-D Behaviour. 

Who would be high-I? Got to love it… Austin Powers is a classic high-I. From what he wears, from what he drives, to how he moves, the whole bit. 

The movie Hitch has a couple of different characters there with a couple of different Behavioural styles. Kevin James is the actor who plays the main character that Hitch is trying to set up. He is the classic high-S Behaviour in that movie. Notice how even communication with a women is a big deal. Often for high-S Behaviour style complaining in a restaurant about anything, could be coffee’s not hot enough or whatever it is, it’s a big, big deal to a high-S Behavioural style. That’s why “step-by-step”, “at your own pace” may not be a big deal to the other Behavioural styles but to a high-S it is. And Hitch hints at that when he himself is high-I. Look at his verbal skills. He feels he is in a comfortable environment and also is more powerful than that environment. So he can cause change and feels he can in other people. 

That’s why often people who are high-I are coaches, trainers that kind of thing. And then finally, high-C, this is a classic. If you watch Seinfeld, George is a high-C Behavioural style. Again he often looks for what’s not right. He has outbursts. Often the environment he is in is not favourable. And often he feels less powerful than the environment. I always remember that line when Jerry is calling himself a loser and George is like... “There’s no way you’re a bigger loser than me I’m the biggest loser there is”. 

So my question to you is which predominant Behavioural style are you? Think about people you know also. Now if you’re not sure about yourself there is one sure way to find out. You got to remember that you do have all of those Behavioural styles. What tends to happen is when you get stressed; most people tend to default back to their predominant behavioural style. So that’s a clue. 

Our thought process and our reactions make the difference in our lives. To take control of our lives we must first identify the things we have control over and the things that we cannot control. All the necessary exercises to help you take control of your life and live the life of your dreams are in the book "Mind Control System". 

Well that’s it for now I hope you’ve enjoyed this write-up as it’s been a pleasure giving it to you.

Sunlight and Mind Experience

IN THE NAME OF ALLAH – THE SOURCE OF MERCY – THE MOST MERCIFUL

I WOULD LIKE TO POINT OUT THE COMPLEX INTERACTION BETWEEN THE ENERGY OF THE SUN WITH THE NEUROTRANSMITTERS OF THE BRAIN, CHEMICAL COMPOUNDS KNOWN AS "AMINO ACIDS". TRYPTOPHAN AND 5-HTP: TAKING THE DIETARY SUPPLEMENT L-TRYPTOPHAN IS AS DESIRABLE OR EFFECTIVE AS 5-HTP. RESEARCH HAS SHOWN THAT THIS VARIES FROM PERSON TO PERSON, PROBABLY DUE TO THE FACT THAT EACH INDIVIDUAL HAS A DIFFERENT METABOLISM, AND ACCORDINGLY ABILITY TO PROCESS, IN OTHER WORDS METABOLISE, L-TRYPTOPHAN TO SEROTONIN VIA THE INTERMEDIATE 5-HTP. 

I CANNOT STRESS ENOUGH THE IMPORTANCE OF CHOOSING A DIET CONTAINING FOODS THAT NATURALLY CONTAIN TRYPTOPHAN OF WHICH THERE ARE MANY. CATTLE, SHEEP ETC ARE NOT CHEMICAL FACTORIES. TO THE EXTENT THEIR FLESH CONTAINS THESE CRUCIAL AMINO ACIDS AND OTHER NUTRIENTS IT IS BECAUSE THEY HAVE CONSUMED VEGETATION THAT CONTAINS THESE NUTRIENTS AND ABSORBED THEM IN TO THEIR FLESH. THE SAME APPLIES FOR VITAMINS SUCH AS B6 AND B12. SO MUCH BETTER TO EAT VEGETABLE FOODS DIRECTLY.

MY CONCERN ABOUT L-TRYPTOPHAN IS THAT IT IS SYNTHESISED FROM A CHEMICAL PROCESS IN THE LABORATORY, LEAVING THE POTENTIAL FOR RESIDUAL HARMFUL CHEMICALS. IN ANY CASE THE BODY METABOLISES L-TRYPTOPHAN FIRST TO 5-HYDROXY TRYPTOPHAN, 5-HTP, WHICH IS THEN FURTHER METABOLISED TO SEROTONIN AND IN TURN MELATONIN, SO ACTUALLY 5-HTP, WHICH IS EXTRACTED FROM A PLANT THAT GROWS IN AFRICA AND IS THEREFORE A NATURAL HERB EXTRACT, IS MORE DIRECT.

LIGHT THERAPY: THE QUESTION HAS ARISEN WHETHER LIGHT THERAPY WOULD WORK FOR PEOPLE WHO HAVE NO SIGHT. THE ANSWER IS YES IT DOES WHICH MAY SURPRISE YOU.

WHEN PEOPLE FEEL LETHARGIC, DEPRESSED, ANXIOUS AND EVEN FATIGUED IN THE ABSENCE OF SUNLIGHT, IT IS NOT ONLY DUE TO THE LACK OF LIGHT ENTERING THE BRAIN THROUGH THE VISUAL CORTEX. WHEN THE SUN SHINES, PEOPLE FEEL BETTER WHETHER WITHIN OR OUTSIDE THE HOME. ENERGY AT THE FREQUENCY WE ARE INTERESTED IN ACTUALLY PASSES THROUGH BUILDINGS AND OTHER PHYSICAL BARRIERS AS WELL AS THE SKIN OF THE BODY. THE ENTIRE HUMAN BODY, UNKNOWN TO MEDICINE, BEHAVES LIKE A LARGE AND HIGHLY COMPLEX FIBRE OPTIC NETWORK WHICH INCLUDES THE BRAIN. WHEN SUNLIGHT OR MORE SPECIFICALLY ENERGY FROM THE SUN RADIATES OVER THE BODY, IT IS INSTANTLY TRANSMITTED THROUGHOUT THE ENTIRE BODY, AS LIGHT, WHERE THE BENEFITS WILL BE FELT.

MY VIEW IS THAT LIGHT THERAPY CAN BE EXTREMELY BENEFICIAL TO MANY PEOPLE IN SUN-LESS LOCATIONS, AND EVEN MORE PEOPLE IN THE WINTER MONTHS. IT IS HOWEVER ABSOLUTELY CRUCIAL TO CHOOSE A LIGHT THERAPY LAMP THAT IS APPROVED AND PROVEN FOR THIS PURPOSE. LIGHT AT THE WRONG FREQUENCIES CAN BE EXTREMELY DAMAGING. SO IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN PURSUING THIS ROUTE, MAKE ABSOLUTELY SURE THAT THE LIGHT THERAPY LAMP YOU CHOOSE IS 100% PERFECT FOR THE PURPOSE BY DOING YOUR RESEARCH. OTHER POSSIBLE CAUSES OF FATIGUE: WHILE BRAIN CHEMISTRY IS BOTH EXTREMELY COMPLEX YET CRUCIAL, THERE ARE OTHER POSSIBLE CAUSES FOR FATIGUE, FEELING TIRED, DEPRESSED ETC.

THE BODY REQUIRES A DIET BALANCED WITH NECESSARY VITAMINS. WHILE ALL VITAMINS PLAY AN IMPORTANT PART IN HEALTH, RESEARCH SUGGESTS THAT THE B VITAMINS ARE PARTICULARLY CRUCIAL, IN PARTICULAR VITAMIN B6 AND B12. SO MAKE SURE YOUR DIET CONTAINS AMPLE LEVELS OF THESE VITAMINS. B6 IS ALSO CRUCIAL FOR BRAIN NEUROTRANSMITTER METABOLISATION, REGULATION AND DISTRIBUTION, SO ABOVE ALL, ESPECIALLY IF TAKING L-TRYPTOPHAN OR 5-HTP, ENSURE YOUR DIET INCLUDES PLENTY OF VITAMIN B6.

ANOTHER NEUROTRANSMITTER THAT CAN HAVE A PROFOUND EFFECT OVER WELL-BEING GENERALLY IS DOPAMINE. DOPAMINE DEFICIENCY IS THE PRIMARY CAUSE OF PARKINSON'S DISEASE FOR EXAMPLE. A PRIMARY AMINO ACID RESPONSIBLE FOR DOPAMINE IN THE BRAIN IS L-TYROSINE AND ANOTHER IS PHENYLALANINE, BOTH OF WHICH ARE METABOLISED IN TO THE INTERMEDIATE COMPOUND L-DOPA, AND FROM THERE TO THE AMINO ACID DOPAMINE. SO AGAIN, ENSURE THE FAMILY DIET INCLUDES FOODS RICH IN L-TYROSINE, PHENYLALANINE AS WELL AS L-TRYPTOPHAN, ALSO ENSURING A PLENTIFUL SUPPLY OF VITAMIN B6 AS WELL AS B12. IT IS AN EXCELLENT IDEA TO ENSURE A DIET RICH IN ALL AMINO ACIDS AND B VITAMINS. KEEP IN MIND THAT A DOCTOR CANNOT TEST YOU FOR AMINO ACID PRESENCE AND FUNCTIONING, SO YOU ARE ON YOUR OWN WHEN IT COMES TO ENSURING YOUR BODY RECEIVE A CONSTANT SUPPLY OF THESE AND B VITAMINS, AS WELL AS ALL OTHER NUTRIENTS, SO DO YOUR RESEARCH. PLANT SOURCES ARE ALWAYS INFINITELY BETTER THAN ANIMAL FLESH OR DAIRY PRODUCTS. WHAT ELSE CAN CAUSE FATIGUE, DEPRESSION AND TIREDNESS?THE ONLY HEALING SOURCE ANY OF US NEED IS SOURCE ITSELF, THROUGH THE POWER OF THE MIND BUT I DO KNOW THAT THYROID DISORDERS CAN ALSO RESULT IN THESE SYMPTOMS. DOCTORS CAN TEST FOR THYROID DISORDERS. IF AFTER A FEW WEEKS OF ENSURING AN EFFECTIVE SUPPLY OF AMINO ACIDS AND B VITAMINS YOU STILL FEEL TIRED AND/OR FATIGUED, IT IS A GOOD IDEA TO BE TESTED FOR THYROID FUNCTION. I HOPE THIS WILL PROVE TO BE USEFUL, AND ALSO REMINDS US THAT PERFECT HEALTH IS ALWAYS A CHOICE.

MIND EXPERIENCE.

ONE OF THE BIGGEST DIFFICULTIES PEOPLE ENCOUNTER GENERALLY WHEN "CREATING", OR MORE ACCURATELY "EXPRESSING" YOUR EXPERIENCE, IS THE INHERENT BELIEF AND IN PARTICULAR FAITH REQUIRED TO ACTUALLY MAKE IT HAPPEN. HUMANS GENERALLY HAVE BEEN PROGRAMMED FROM BIRTH BY THE "LIFE IS HARD" SYNDROME, AND THAT "NOTHING COMES EASY" OR WITHOUT LOTS OF "HARD WORK" AND "MONEY". AND EVEN "LUCK". THESE ERRONEOUS IDEAS ARE REINFORCED BY RESULTANT LIFE EXPERIENCE, SUPPORTED BY THE CONTROLLING AND MANIPULATING DARK FORCES BEHIND THEM, WHO WISH ONLY KEEP HUMANITY ENSLAVED BY ANY POSSIBLE MEANS. AS THOSE OF YOU HAVE BEEN READING THIS FOR ANY AMOUNT OF TIME, WE ALL HAVE CONTROL OVER YOUR OWN EXPERIENCE IN EVERY MOMENT.

THE MAIN DRIVING FORCE BEHIND THIS PROCESS IS FAITH. NOT THE BLIND FAITH EVANGELISED BY THE CHURCH, BUT TRUE FAITH IN EVERY RESPECT. IN FACT THIS IS THE FAITH THAT JESUS (PBUH) TAUGHT, BUT HIS MESSAGE SUBSEQUENTLY COMPLETELY MISUNDERSTOOD, AND/OR DISTORTED TO THEIR OWN ENDS. SO HOW THEN DOES FAITH AS WELL AS BELIEF AND EXPECTATION RELATE TO QUANTUM PHYSICS? TO ANSWER THIS QUESTION WE NEED TO REVIEW AGAIN HOW WE ACTUALLY CREATE, OR MORE CORRECTLY EXPRESS OUR PERSONAL EXPERIENCE.

1. THE FIVE PHYSICAL SENSES SIGHT, HEARING, SMELL, TASTE AND TOUCH CONTINUOUSLY SEND DATA IN THE FORM OF MILLIONS OF TINY "PACKETS" OF ELECTRICAL CHARGES, COLLECTIVELY "SENSORY INPUTS" REPRESENTING AN IMPRESSION OF YOUR IMMEDIATE SURROUNDINGS, EVERY SECOND TO YOUR ORGANIC BRAIN.

NOTE: THE ORGANIC BRAIN IS NOT THE MIND AND NEITHER IS THE ORGANIC BRAIN THE SO CALLED "SEAT OF CONSCIOUSNESS" AN ERRONEOUS IDEA IN AND OF ITSELF. THE ORGANIC BRAIN IS BEST LIKENED TO AN IMMENSELY POWERFUL "SUPERCOMPUTER", BUT WHICH STILL RELIES COMPLETELY UPON ITS PROGRAMMER AND SYSTEMS ANALYST, THE SUBCONSCIOUS SPHERE OF ACTIVITY OF THE MIND; MOST OFTEN CONSIDERED TO BE THE "SUBCONSCIOUS MIND.

2. THE ORGANIC BRAIN CONTINUOUSLY COLLATES AND ASSEMBLES THE STREAM OF SENSORY INPUTS RECEIVED FROM THE SENSORY ORGANS FROM WHICH IT COMPILES A COMPOSITE IMAGE OR IMPRESSION AS A "BEST GUESS SCENARIO". THIS COMPOSITE "IMAGE", WHICH ACTUALLY ENCOMPASSES ALL AVAILABLE SENSORY INFORMATION, IS THEN SENT AS A STREAM OF DATA TO THE SUBCONSCIOUS SPHERE OF MIND PRINCIPLE - SUBCONSIOUSNESS - "SUBCONSCIOUS MIND".

NOTE: THIS IS AN ENTIRELY MECHANICAL, PROGRAMMED PROCESS WITH NO INHERENT INTELLIGENCE APPLIED OR PRESENT, IN AND OF ITSELF.

3. SUBCONSCIOUS SPHERE OF MIND - SUBCONSIOUSNESS, THEN APPLIES A WIDE RANGE OF LEARNED "FILTERS", ACQUIRED OVER THE DURATION OF THE PHYSICAL LIFE EXPERIENCE TO THAT POINT, BASED UPON ONGOING IDEAS, FEELINGS, EMOTIONS, FEARS, SELF ESTEEM, PREJUDICES, BELIEFS AND BELIEF SYSTEMS, RELIGIONS, EXPECTATIONS OF FAMILY, FRIENDS, SOCIETY, PERCEPTIONS ON "MONEY" AND SENSE OF SECURITY, CONCERNS FOR FAMILY AND MUCH, MUCH MORE, ALL RECEIVED FROM THE CONSCIOUS SPHERE OF MIND PRINCIPLE GENERALLY CONSIDERED TO BE THE CONSCIOUS MIND DURING THE ONGOING EXPERIENCE WHICH IT RECOGNISES AS "LIFE".

NOTE: THE SUBCONSCIOUS MIND PRINCIPLE IS SUBLIME, AND SIMPLY ACCEPTS THESE MESSAGES FROM THE CONSCIOUS SPHERE OF MIND ACTIVITY AS "PREFERENCES" WITHOUT QUESTION, AS YOUR OWN PREFERRED "SELF-IMAGE", YOUR "IDEAL SELF" HOW YOU "SEE YOURSELF". THE SUBCONSCIOUS MIND THEN APPLIES THESE "PREFERENCES" TO THE COMPOSITE IMAGE IT HAS RECEIVED FROM THE ORGANIC BRAIN, AND THEN FORWARDS IT TO THE CONSCIOUS MIND. CONSCIOUS MIND DULY ACCEPTS THE IMAGE WITHOUT QUESTION AS YOUR OWN PARTICULAR IMPRESSION OF YOUR CURRENT "EXPERIENCE" IN THAT MOMENT. KEEP IN MIND THAT THIS IS A CONTINUOUS PROCESS. THIS IMPRESSION OR IMAGE IS ALWAYS ACCEPTED BY THE CONSCIOUS MIND AS "REAL" BECAUSE THE SUBCONSCIOUS MIND HAS ALREADY PROCESSED THE IMAGE TO ENSURE THAT IT IS IN EXACT ALIGNMENT WITH HOW YOU ALREADY PERCEIVE YOUR OWN SITUATION AND "LIFE EXPERIENCE", AND THEREFORE THERE ARE NO CONTRADICTIONS, AND YOU HAVE NO REASON TO CONSCIOUSLY DOUBT IT. SO THE "SUBCONSCIOUS MIND" IS SIMPLY AND ONLY SHOWING YOU ONLY THAT WHICH YOU ALREADY EXPECT TO SEE BASED UPON YOUR OWN PERCEPTIONS, POSITIVE, NEGATIVE OR NEUTRAL OF YOUR OWN PERSONAL EXPERIENCE. SUBCONSCIOUS MIND IS ALWAYS "HUMOURING" YOU, BUT NOT BECAUSE IT MAKES ANY SORT OF DECISION TO DO SO. THE SUBCONSCIOUS SPHERE OF MIND ACTIVITY IS SUBLIME, AND ONLY ENSURES THAT THE WISHES, RATIONAL OR NOT, OF THE CONSCIOUS MIND, THE EGO, ARE SATISFIED.

NOTE: IT IS WORTHY TO NOTE THE TERMS OF "CONSCIOUS MIND" OR "SUBCONSCIOUS MIND" BECAUSE THEY ARE BOTH SPHERES OF ACTIVITY OF THE ONE ULTIMATE AND ONLY MIND, OF WHICH HUMANS ARE BUT ONE SPHERE OF ACTIVITY. WE SHOULD ALWAYS THEREFORE REFER TO THESE AS CONSCIOUSNESS AND SUBCONSIOUSNESS. HOWEVER, IN THE INTERESTS OF FAMILIARITY OF TERMS, I WILL CONTINUE TO USE BOTH AS APPROPRIATE.

NOW THE IMPORTANT POINT TO NOTE AT THIS STAGE IS THAT YOUR PERSONAL EXPERIENCE IS CONSTANTLY BEING SHAPED ONLY BY YOUR CONSCIOUS OBSERVATIONS, EXPERIENCES AND ASSOCIATED THOUGHT PROCESSES, FEELINGS AND EMOTIONS, SIMPLY REACTING TO, AND ENGAGING IN, WHAT YOU SINCERELY BELIEVE TO BE YOUR "REAL" EXPERIENCE, YOUR "LIFE" BUT WITH LITTLE OR NO CONTROL, OR EVEN REMOTE AWARENESS OF THIS PROCESS. IT IS A VERY COMMON HUMAN TRAIT TO FOCUS MUCH MORE UPON THE "NEGATIVE" ASPECTS OF THEIR OWN PERCEIVED EXPERIENCE, WITH ALL THE CORRESPONDING WORRIES, FEARS AND NEGATIVE EXPECTATIONS ARISING, WHICH ARE BEING CONSTANTLY RECEIVED BY, AND IMPRESSED UPON THE SUBLIME SUBCONSCIOUS MIND, THEREBY REINFORCED BY FEELINGS, MOODS AND EMOTIONS. SO AGAIN, SUBCONSCIOUS MIND IS DUTIFULLY AND IMMUTABLY ENSURING THAT YOUR OWN UNIQUE PERCEPTION OF YOUR OWN UNIQUE EXPERIENCE ACCURATELY REFLECTS YOUR OWN PERCEPTION OF YOUR EXPERIENCE AND EXPECTATIONS, THEREBY PERPETUALLY SATISFYING YOUR OWN LEARNED AND PROGRAMMED SELF-REINFORCING PERCEPTIONS, PREJUDICES AND BELIEFS.

IF THESE BELIEFS ARE NEGATIVE IN NATURE, BECAUSE THEY ARE SELF-ENFORCING, THEY CAN SPIRAL OUT OF ANY "CONTROL" THAT MAY HAVE EXISTED, VERY QUICKLY BEING PERCEIVED AS A "HOPELESS SITUATION", AS SO VERY OFTEN HAPPENS. EVERY HUMAN, NO MATTER WHAT "PICTURE" THE PHYSICAL SENSES, ORGANIC BRAIN AND CONSCIOUS MIND CONSPIRE TO PRESENT. DUALITY AND SEPARATION ARE SIMPLY ILLUSIONS ARISING FROM THE ACTIVITY OF PHYSICAL SENSES, ORGANIC BRAIN AGAIN WHICH HAS NO INHERENT INTELLIGENCE OR CONSCIOUSNESS AND THE CONSCIOUS SPHERE OF ACTIVITY OF MIND, BUT WHICH HAS ABSOLUTELY NO BASIS IN FACT. BUT STILL NEVERTHELESS THE CONSCIOUS MIND "SEES" OR MORE CORRECTLY "PERCEIVES" AND BELIEVES ITSELF TO BE A "SEPARATE" "PERSON", KNOWN AS THE EGO. THIS INDEED IS WHERE MANY OF THE ISSUES FACING HUMANITY TODAY ORIGINATE AT THIS MOMENT, AND IS ACCORDINGLY THE ORIGIN AND CAUSE OF MOST MISERY, SUFFERING AND HUMAN CONFLICT IN THE WORLD. 

WHEN WE "OBSERVE" SOMETHING, THAT IS TO SAY "FOCUS OUR MIND" UPON IT, IN THAT MOMENT THE QUANTUM WAVEFORM "COLLAPSES" AT A TEMPORAL, LOCAL LEVEL, IN TO "PARTICLES", WHICH TAKE THE FORM OF ATOMIC STRUCTURE FROM WHICH THE ILLUSION OF MATTER IS PERCEIVED THROUGH A HOLOGRAPHIC TUNNEL ORIGINATING IN THE BRAIN, AND PERCEIVED BY THE CONSCIOUS MIND VIA THE SUBCONSCIOUS MIND. NOW KNOWING AND UNDERSTAND THIS IS IMMEDIATELY MASSIVELY EMPOWERING. IT SHOULD BE CLEAR THEN THAT IN ANY MOMENT, WE CAN "COLLAPSE" THE QUANTUM WAVEFORM OF THE UNIFIED FIELD 
INTO ANY LOCAL, TEMPORAL EXPERIENCE OF OUR CHOOSING. SO WHY DO PEOPLE GENERALLY MAINTAIN THE STATUS QUO IN THEIR LIVES? WELL SIMPLY BECAUSE THEY REACT TO THEIR CURRENT EXPERIENCE, INSTEAD OF PROACTIVELY EXPRESSING AN ALTERNATIVE EXPERIENCE IN THAT TEMPORAL MOMENT.

IN OTHER WORDS FOR MOST PEOPLE EXPERIENCE IS A CONDITIONED AND PROGRAMMED RESPONSE. HOWEVER, EVEN THOSE WHO ARE AWARE THAT EXPERIENCE ORIGINATES FROM MIND, 99.999% STILL FAIL TO USE THESE TRUTHS TO THEIR ADVANTAGE. SO WE NOW KNOW THAT WE CAN POTENTIALLY EXPRESS ANY EXPERIENCE WE CAN IMAGINE IN ANY MOMENT. BUT IS IT THAT SIMPLE? IF SO, WHY IS IT THAT NO ONE EVER SEEMS TO BE ABLE TO ACHIEVE IT? THE ANSWER IS THAT EVERYONE HAS THAT POTENTIAL, BUT IN REALITY MOST PEOPLE ARE PROGRAMMED TO BELIEVE THEY ARE A "VICTIM OF CIRCUMSTANCE" THAT THEY SIMPLY CANNOT "CHANGE THEIR MIND" THAT EASILY, AND EVEN THEN THEY NEED THE JUSTIFICATION TO DO SO. WHERE THEN DOES FAITH COME IN TO THE EQUATION? WELL QUITE SIMPLY, FAITH IS THE MOST POWERFUL FORCE THAT WE CAN EXERT OVER OUR EXPERIENCE.

I REALISE MUCH OF THIS IS PROFOUND, AND A LOT TO ASSIMILATE, BUT ONCE YOU UNDERSTAND THE BASIS OF YOUR EXPERIENCE AND HOW IT IS EXPRESSED, THEN YOU CAN QUICKLY MOVE YOUR MIND TOWARDS ACTUALLY MAKING IT IN TO AN INTEGRAL ASPECT OF AN INFINITELY EMPOWERED EXPERIENCE WITH ABSOLUTE JOY, ABUNDANCE, AND ABOVE ALL FREEDOM.

Stress

IN THE NAME OF ALLAH – THE SOURCE OF MERCY – THE MOST MERCIFUL

DO YOU FEEL GUILTY WHEN RELAXING? DO YOU LIE AWAKE AT NIGHT WORRYING ABOUT WHAT WILL HAPPEN TOMORROW? 

ARE YOU TENSE...DOES YOUR NECK FEEL KNOTTED UP? ARE YOU IMPATIENT OR IRRITABLE? 

DO YOU INTERRUPT WHEN OTHERS ARE TALKING? DO YOU HAVE DIFFICULTY IN CONCENTRATING? ARE YOU SMOKING OR DRINKING MORE? DO YOU EAT IN A HURRY? CRISIS? ARE YOU ALWAYS HAVING ROWS? 

DO YOU FIND IT DIFFICULT TO MAKE DECISIONS? DO YOU FEEL FRUSTRATED WHEN PEOPLE DON'T DO WHAT YOU WANT? 

DO YOU FREQUENTLY EXPERIENCE A BUTTERFLY STOMACH, DRY MOUTH, SWEATY PALMS OR A THUMPING HEART? IF YOU HAVE SAID 'YES' TO SOME OF THESE, THE CHANCES ARE THAT YOU ARE SUFFERING FROM STRESS.

STRESS AND ITS SIDE EFFECTS CAN ARISE FROM A NUMBER OF FACTORS. WORK OVERLOAD IS JUST ONE OF THEM. OTHER FACTORS CAN ALSO PUT YOU UNDER PRESSURE SUCH AS CHANGES IN YOUR CIRCUMSTANCES, UNEXPECTED FINANCIAL DIFFICULTIES. EVEN CHANGES IN YOUR DAILY ROUTINE CAN BE A POTENTIAL TRIGGER FACTOR FOR THOSE WHO ARE PARTICULARLY VULNERABLE TO STRESS. 

WHAT KIND OF PEOPLE FALL INTO THIS STRESS PRONE CATEGORY? 

THE ANXIOUS TYPE ADD COPY STRESS 

THIS PERSONALITY TYPE IS USUALLY LACKING IN SELF-CONFIDENCE, UNSURE OF HIS OR HER ABILITIES EVEN IF OTHERS TRY TO BE REASSURING. ANXIOUS PEOPLE ARE RELUCTANT TO EXPRESS ANY NEGATIVE EMOTIONS OPENLY AND ARE OFTEN INCAPABLE OF SAYING 'NO' IF SOMEONE MAKES UNREASONABLE DEMANDS ON THEM. 

THIS UNWILLINGNESS AND FEAR TO STAND UP OF THEMSELVES COMES EITHER FROM A DISTORTED SENSE OF DUTY OR FROM THE MISTAKEN BELIEF THAT THEY WILL MAKE THEMSELVES UNPOPULAR IF THEY DO NOT COMPLY WITH OTHER PEOPLE'S WISHES. EVEN THOUGH ANXIOUS PEOPLE APPEAR TO BE CONFORMIST, THEY OFTEN HARBOUR STRONG RESENTMENTS AGAINST THOSE WHOSE WISHES THEY SEEM TO CARRY OUT SO WILLINGLY. 

ANXIOUS PEOPLE TEND TO GO FOR UNDEMANDING JOBS, WHICH CAN EASILY LEAD THEM TO BECOMING FRUSTRATED AND BORED. IF THEY PROGRESS TO A MORE RESPONSIBLE JOB THEY TEND TO FEEL EASILY HASSLED WHEN THE WORKLOAD INCREASES AND WILL OFTEN TAKE THEIR UNEASE OUT ON OTHERS. 

THE PERFECTIONIST 

PERFECTIONISTS LIKE EVERYTHING TO BE IN ITS PROPER PLACE AND DONE AT THE PROPER TIME. ROUTINE IS OF GREAT IMPORTANCE, AS IS DETAIL. MISTAKES ARE NOT TOLERATED THEY WILL EVEN REWRITE A HANDWRITTEN, INFORMAL MESSAGE IF THEIR PEN SLIPS OR A WORD HAS BEEN MISSPELLED. THIS RATHER PLODDING WAY OF DEALING WITH LIFE WORKS OUT WELL AS LONG AS THE JOB IN HAND IS STABLE AND PREDICTABLE. 

THEIR GREAT PROBLEMS ADAPTING TO CHANGE, AND THEIR UNWILLINGNESS TO GIVE UP ESTABLISHED ROUTINES, CAN CAUSE STRESS FOR PERFECTIONISTS IF THEY FIND THEMSELVES DISTRACTED FROM THEIR ROUTINES. THEIR DILIGENT ATTENTION TO DETAIL MEANS THAT THEY ARE CREATING STRESS FOR THEMSELVES WHEN BETTER PRIORITIZATION AND A MORE EVEN HANDED APPROACH TO LESS IMPORTANT TASKS COULD EASILY SAVE THE DAY. 

THE AMBITIOUS TYPE (A - TYPE) 

A-TYPE PERSONALITIES TEND TO BE HARD-DRIVEN AND AGGRESSIVE, CHANNELLING ALL THEIR ENERGIES INTO THEIR WORK. A-TYPES HAVE LITTLE OR NO TIME FOR A SOCIAL LIFE OR HOBBIES, THEY LIVE, THINK AND DREAM 'WORK'. THEY HAVE PROBLEMS DELEGATING AND ARE HIGHLY CRITICAL OF THEMSELVES AND OTHERS, OFTEN BECOMING IMPATIENT AND ANGRY WHEN THINGS DO NOT RUN SMOOTHLY. 

THEY FIND IT IMPOSSIBLE TO SIT DOWN QUIETLY AND DO NOTHING; THEY ARE CONSTANTLY MOVING, JIGGLING THEIR KNEES AND TAPPING THEIR FINGERS IN TIMES OF STRESS THEY TEND TO DO SEVERAL THINGS AT THE SAME TIME. THEY ALSO FIND IT HARD TO CONCENTRATE FULLY ON CONVERSATIONS BECAUSE THEY ARE ALREADY RACING AHEAD IN THEIR MINDS, THINKING ABOUT THE NEXT THING THEY WANT TO DO. 

IN THEIR EFFORTS TO CONTROL EVERYTHING AND EVERYONE AROUND THEM, A-TYPES EXERT THEMSELVES PHYSICALLY AND MENTALLY. THEY ARE UNABLE TO RECOGNISE WHEN THEY HAVE REACHED THEIR LIMIT AND WILL TYPICALLY SUFFER FROM HIGH BLOOD-PRESSURE. A-TYPES ARE PRONE TO CORONARY HEART DISEASE, ULCERS AND ATHEROSCLEROSIS (HARDENING OF THE ARTERIES). 

ALL STRESS PRONE TYPES OF PERSONALITIES ARE DRIVEN BY ONE THING FEAR. THE ANXIOUS PERSON IS AFRAID TO BE UNPOPULAR AND TO BE CONSIDERED UNHELPFUL, THE PERFECTIONIST IS AFRAID OF BEING ONLY HUMAN AND THE A-TYPE IS AFRAID OF NOT BEING SEEN TO ACHIEVE. 

EVEN THOUGH CERTAIN PERSONALITY TRAITS CAN PREDISPOSE A PERSON TO HAVE THESE FEARS, ONE'S UPBRINGING ALSO PLAYS A PART. 

FOLLOWING ARE SOME OF THE FACTORS THAT CAN LEAD TO A PERSONALITY TYPE THAT IS VULNERABLE TO STRESS. 

PRESSURE TO SUCCEED: WHEN CHILDREN ARE PRESSURISED BY PARENTS AND TEACHERS CONSTANTLY TO ACHIEVE THE VERY BEST RESULTS, AND IF LOVE AND APPROVAL ARE DEPENDENT OF HIGH PERFORMANCE, SOME CHILDREN WILL INTERNALISE THESE CONDITIONS AND LATER LIVE THEIR LIVES ACCORDINGLY. SELF WORTH BECOMES TOTALLY DEPENDENT ON ACHIEVEMENTS. 

LONELINESS: WHILE CHILDREN ARE SHOWN LITTLE OR NO AFFECTION OR INTEREST THEY CAN GROW UP WITHOUT SELF WORTH OR CONFIDENCE IN THEIR OWN VALIDITY AS HUMAN BEINGS. 

IN THEIR ATTEMPT TO JUSTIFY THEIR EXISTENCE, THEY MAY DEDICATE THEMSELVES OVER ZEALOUSLY TO THEIR WORK. 

OVER PROTECTION: PARENTS WHO DO EVERYTHING FOR THEIR CHILDREN PREVENT THEM FROM BECOMING INDEPENDENT AND FROM HAVING THE OPPORTUNITY TO TEST THEIR STRENGTH AGAINST THE EVERYDAY WORLD. THIS RESTRICTIVE UPBRINGING CAN LEAD TO RESENTMENT AND REBELLION.

PATTERN DETECTION

EXPLORING THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN EXPERT AND GENIUS: 

BOTH EXPERTS AND GENIUSES HAVE INTUITIONS THEY OPERATE FROM. THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE STRUCTURE AND CATEGORIES OF THESE INTUITIONS HAS MUCH TO DO WITH THE DIFFERENCES BETWEEN HOW EXPERTS AND GENIUSES OPERATE AND WHERE. FIRST IT IS CRITICAL TO POINT OUT THAT THE USAGE OF THE WORDS 'EXPERT' AND 'GENIUS' REFERS TO MY OWN APPLICATION AND NOT TO ANY PARTICULAR DEFINITION. FOR THE PURPOSES USED HERE 'EXPERT' REFERS TO SOMEONE WHO HAS A THOROUGH KNOWLEDGE (EXPERTISE) WITH SOME GIVEN SUBJECT, WHETHER INTELLECTUAL OR EXPERIENTIAL. SO USING THIS APPLICATION WE CAN SAY THAT AN EXPERT CAN OPERATE IN THE FIELD OF THEIR EXPERTISE BE IT TENNIS OR ART OR PHILOSOPHY. THE EXPERT IS TOTALLY FAMILIAR WITH THE PATTERNS THAT EXIST IN THEIR FIELD OF EXPERTISE AND IN THEIR APPLICATION. IN ADDITION AN EXPERT WOULD, AS USED HERE, BE THOROUGHLY FAMILIAR WITH THE DETECTION AND RECOGNITION OF THESE PATTERNS. A GENIUS GOES BEYOND HAVING KNOWLEDGE OF THE SUBJECT, AND MAY IN FACT BE LESS KNOWLEDGEABLE THAN AN EXPERT IN THAT SUBJECT. WHAT A GENIUS DOES FOR OUR PURPOSES AS USED HERE IS CREATE NEW WAYS OF OPERATING WITHIN THE FIELD OF THEIR GENIUS. THEY CREATE PATTERNS THAT DO NOT YET EXIST. A GENIUS, AS USED HERE, IS CAPABLE OF GENERATING A PATTERN THAT HAS NEVER BEEN USED BEFORE OR IN USING AN EXISTING PATTERN IN A WAY OR WAYS THAT IT HAS NEVER BEEN USED BEFORE.

THE "INTUITION OF EXPERTISE" IS "PATTERN DEPENDENT", THAT IS IN THE DETECTION, RECOGNITION, REPLICATION AND APPLICATION OF PATTERN. THE "INTUITION OF GENIUS" IS "PATTERN INDEPENDENT", THAT IS OPERATING OUTSIDE OF PATTERN, GENERATIVE. IF THIS IS TRUE, AND EXPERTISE IS 'PATTERN DEPENDENT' THAN I WOULD SAY THAT THE ART OF MODELING IS THE DOMAIN OF EXPERTISE AND IS CONSTRAINED BY THE LIMITATION OF PATTERN.

BOTH OF THESE POSITIONS REQUIRE A DIFFERENT 'ONTOLOGY' TO SUPPORT THE STRUCTURE THEY EMPLOY FOR OPERATING IN THE WORLD. SPECIFICALLY THE POSITION OF 'GENIUS' IS INTERNALLY GENERATED - MAINTAINING AN INTERNAL STABILITY REGARDLESS OF EXTERNAL STIMULUS WHILST MAINTAINING AN EXTERNAL FLEXIBILITY IN RESPONSE TO THE EXTERNAL STIMULUS IN RELATION TO THE INTERNAL STABILITY BEING MAINTAINED. THIS IS A RECURSIVE, GENERATIVE LOOP. IN COMPARISON I WOULD SUGGEST THAT THE POSITION OF 'EXPERTISE' IS A DYNAMIC OF MATCHING INTERNAL AND EXTERNAL POSITION BASED ON WHAT IS KNOW ABOUT THE EXTERNAL STIMULUS PERCEIVED. THIS IS A CONSTANTLY SHIFTING POSITION ADJUSTING INTERNAL TO EXTERNAL BALANCE IN RELATION TO ONE ANOTHER.

USING THE ABOVE CHARACTERISTICS, THE 'EXPERT' KNOWS THEMSELVES IN RELATION TO THE INFORMATION PRESENT IN SENSORY PERCEPTION. THE 'GENIUS' KNOWS THEMSELVES APART FROM THE SENSORY PERCEPTION. I'M SUGGESTING THAT 'GENIUS' MAY BE OF A HIGHER LOGICAL LEVEL THAN 'EXPERTISE' AS I'M USING THEM HERE.

IN DIFFERENTIATING BETWEEN 'EXPERTISE' AND 'GENIUS' AS I HAVE USED THEM THERE IS THE SIMULTANEOUS DIFFERENTIATION OF EPISTEMOLOGY AND ONTOLOGY. 'EXPERTISE' IS AN OPERATIONAL EPISTEMOLOGY AS I HAVE DEFINED IT, WHERE 'GENIUS' IS AN OPERATIONAL ONTOLOGY. THAT IS, 'EXPERTISE' FLOWS FROM AN EPISTEMOLOGICAL BIAS, "WHAT DOES THE 'EXPERT' KNOW AND HOW DO THEY KNOW WHAT THEY KNOW IN RELATION TO EXTERNAL DATA?", AND 'GENIUS' FLOWS FROM AN ONTOLOGICAL BASIS, "HOW DOES THE 'GENIUS' KNOW TO BE WHO IN THE NAME OF ALLAH – THE SOURCE OF MERCY – THE MOST MERCIFUL

THEY ARE, REGARDLESS OF THE INDICATIONS OF THE EXTERNAL DATA?"

THIS MAY BE THE BASIS FOR THE 'STRUCTURE OF GENIUS', OPERATING FROM AN ONTOLOGICAL AS OPPOSED TO AN EPISTEMOLOGICAL BASIS AS PRIMARY INTENT (RESULT AS OUTCOME WHEN OPERATED AS A WAY OF BEING) INNOVATION (OPERATION OUTSIDE OF PATTERN) GENIUS.

PATTERN OPERATED AS PROCESS WILL ALWAYS LEAD TO FAILURE OVER TIME IN ANY GIVEN SYSTEM IS THE CONSTANT IN THE SYSTEM IS CHANGE. IN ORDER TO ENSURE SUCCESS OVER TIME IN THE SYSTEM THE INTERVENTION HAS TO BE SYSTEMIC, TAKING INTO ACCOUNT THE TOTAL SYSTEM AND IT'S STATE IN TIME, TO CREATE A 'GENERATIVE' RESPONSE.

THE DIFFERENCE THAT MAKES THE DIFFERENCE IS ATTENDING TO CONTEXT AS OPPOSED TO PROCESS. CONTEXT CANNOT BE CONTAINED IN PATTERN IN A DYNAMIC SYSTEM, ESPECIALLY IF THE SYSTEM IS SENTIENT.

WHAT IS REQUIRED IN GENERATING SUCCESS IN A SYSTEMIC INTERVENTION IS 'BRINGING THE FUTURE PRESENT'. IN 'REAL' TERMS FOR THE INDIVIDUAL OPERATING WITHIN THE SYSTEM THE 'FUTURE EXPECTATION' MUST BE SET INTO THE SOMATIC PROCESS,  LOOP THE PRE & POST CONSCIOUS EXPERIENCE.

SPECIFICALLY WHAT IS OCCURRING IS THAT IN THE STRUCTURE OF GENIUS THE FOCUS OF ATTENTION IS ON THE POST-CONSCIOUS (TRAN CONSCIOUS) POSITION, THIS IS THE POSITION OF 'EXPECTATION'. BY CONTRAST, IN THE OPERATIONAL POSITION OF EXPERTISE THE ATTENTION IS FIXED ON THE CONSCIOUS OR SEMANTIC POSITION OF KNOWLEDGE OR KNOWING.

FROM THE POSITION OF THE 'EXPERT' THE SENSES ARE TRAINED TO SORT FOR WHAT IS KNOWN AND TO RESPOND TO SAMENESS AND DIFFERENCE THERE. IN THIS WAY ANY INTERVENTION WILL BE LOCALISED TO THE VARIANTS FOUND FROM THIS PARTICULAR SORT, WHICH MAY OR MAY NOT BE SYSTEMIC. IN ANY CASE THEY WILL BE LIMITED BY THE LIMITS OF THE EXPERTS KNOWLEDGE IN NOTICING WHAT IS PRESENT.

WHEN THE SORTING IS DONE THROUGH THE FILTERING PROCESS OF 'GENIUS' THE SENSES ARE TRAINED TO DETECT WHAT WOULD MAKE THE EXPECTATION HELD POSSIBLE, REGARDLESS OF WHAT IS OR IS NOT PRESENT. THIS ALLOWS THE GENIUS TO OPERATE GENERATIVELY FROM THE CREATIVE BIAS. FROM THIS OPERATING POSITION ANY INTERVENTION WILL BE AT THE SYSTEMIC LEVEL, INTERVENING IN THE CONTEXT THAT THE SYSTEM OPERATES WITHIN.

WHEN THE CONTEXT IS ATTENDED TO AND AN INTERVENTION IS MADE AT THIS LEVEL WITH REGARD TO WHAT IS EXPECTED, REGARDLESS OF THE PRESENT SITUATIONAL LIMITATIONS, THEN WE CAN SAY THERE HAS BEEN A VERTICAL SHIFT IN THE RESPONSE POTENTIAL OF THE SYSTEM. THIS IS A NON-LOCAL, NON-LINEAR EVENT.

GENIUS IS THE OUTPUT OF THE CREATIVE TENSION BETWEEN THE CONSCIOUS AND THE UNCONSCIOUS, BOTH OF WHICH USE DIFFERENT FORMS OF LOGIC. THESE FORMS CAN BE SAID TO RELATE TO THE PAIRS OF SENSE AND INTUITION, DETAIL AND PATTERN, PRESENT AND POTENTIAL. GENIUS IS THE RESOLUTION OF THE APPARENT DUALITY PRESENT IN THESE SEEMINGLY INCONGRUENT PAIRS. GENIUS OPERATES IN PARADOX, RESOLVING IT.

TO SUMMARISE AND REVIEW WE CAN SAY THAT THE PROPOSITION PUT FORTH HERE IS THAT 'EXPERTISE' IS PATTERN DEPENDENT WHILE 'GENIUS' IS PATTERN INDEPENDENT. THE DISTINCTIONS OUTLINED ABOVE INDICATE THAT 'EXPERTISE' IS A LINEAR, LOCAL AND TEMPORAL EVENT = MECHANICAL. WHILE 'GENIUS' IS NON-LINEAR, NON-LOCAL AND A TEMPORAL = QUANTUM EVENT. 'EXPERTISE' OPERATES IN THE DOMAIN OF EPISTEMOLOGY – WHAT IS KNOWN AND HOW IT IS KNOWN AS APPLIED TO THE PRODUCTION OF SPECIFIED RESULTS, WHILE 'GENIUS' OPERATES IN THE DOMAIN OF ONTOLOGY – WHAT "IS" AND THE INTERNALISED EXPERIENCE OF EXISTENCE AND 'BEING' LEADING TO GENERATIVE OUTPUT OF AS YET UNREALISED POTENTIAL.
