ARCHETYPES AND TIME IN THE MIND & UNIVERSES
I didn't originally intend the Ghost Danse articles to act as a commentary on other people's work. Nevertheless I find that I am drawn to quote from and add to, much that has been written by others, especially Hubbard and Ogger.
I came across an extraordinary passage in Ken Ogger's Super Scio (#7C) which touched upon something I've been investigating on my own during my isolation from my peers. He laid out a marvelous series of procedures for expanding a person's overall abilities (thinly disguised as training in levitation!), one of which is so badly named that I must assume he got it in some form from Hubbard:
12.11 Acknowledgment of the Object
a) Spot the object as a communication from an originator in the distant past. Consider the object itself to be the comm line stretching through time to give you a perfect duplicate of what the originator mocked up.
b) Send an acknowledgment through the object back to the originator.
c) Now you send the mockup of the object back to the originator (send it back through the track of the object).
d) have the originator send an ack back to you.
Ken comments beneath:
Oddly enough, this process works and produces a very interesting release and increase of havingness. It seems to sidestep the apparancy that other MEST was alter-ised to make the object and it also bypasses the manufacturing considerations. Mass produced objects were postulated by somebody or somebodies even if a machine was used to make vast numbers of copies.
"Oddly enough"???? I don't find it odd at all! That procedure above works because it is based upon a fundamental postulate which we've been using as a foundation for most if not all the universes we've inhabited over the eons. I discovered this postulate during my investigation of astrology. Later I realized that it was behind the need to locate a "basic" when running chains of engrams in dianetic therapy. The postulate may be stated thus:
A THING EXISTS ONLY IN THE TIME (MOMENT) OF ITS FIRST CREATION.
This is of course derived from the primal triangle of creation "AS-IS, ALTER-IS, NOT-IS", which itself is little more than another way of saying "FIRST postulate, SECOND postulate, THIRD postulate". The truth is always the first postulate, the as-isness -- which is why it is necessary to locate the first "thing". From this you get the following corollaries:
THE "TIME" OF ANY OBJECT IS THE EXACT MOMENT OF ITS CREATION.
THE "TIME" OF A LIVING BODY IS THE EXACT MOMENT OF ITS BIRTH.
ALL HUMANOID BODIES ARE BASED UPON AND HAVE THE CHARACTERISTICS OF THE FIRST HUMANOID BODY EVER MOCKED UP. (This would be quite a bit prior to the current universe.) The same holds true for, say, a drinking cup. The first cup ever made acts as the archetype on which all subsequent cups are based. In order to get past the not-isness (3rd or more postulates) to the real isness of a particular cup one would locate the moment that specific cup was made, and then the moment the first ever cup was made. These actions would undercut most of the not-is accumulated on that specific cup by treating the cup almost as the most recent incident on a chain -- then instead of "grinding" away at the recent cup, going back and running "basic."
THE "TIME" OF A PHYSICAL SPACE (A UNIVERSE) IS ALWAYS THE FIRST MOMENT OF ITS EXISTENCE. This of course means that our personal universes are a hell of a lot older than this current MEST universe! This is behind the phenomena Hubbard and his researchers encountered when they would ask someone to come to "present time", only to discover that the person had instead gone to the beginning of his track!
THE "TIME" IN A MENTAL IMAGE SUCH AS A MEMORY OF AN INCIDENT IS THE MOMENT OF CREATION OF EVERY OBJECT OR SITUATION WHICH APPEARS IN THE MEMORY. This is why dianetic (regression) therapy can run chains which associate almost anything which appears in the first incident located. If the processee locates a recent incident in which he was hit over the head with a hammer by his father causing pain in the head, that incident can be run as a series of incidents associated with any of those items. It can be run as a series of "pain in head" incidents. It can be run as a series of "hammer" incidents. It can be run as a series of "father" incidents. And it's possible to get a release any of the three ways! Dianetics really needs to be revamped (again) given the above data!
It's really something that the ancient Greek philosopher Plato managed to get deep enough into his mind to spot the existence of archetypes. The old guy, or whoever he got it from, must have been quite able as a being. Believe me, it isn't easy to do -- requires some extremely deep introspection.
