4 Domains to work on

1. Pnuema(character cultivation)

2. Psyche(intellectual ability)

3. Soma (physical ability)

4. Opus (skill set in an employable field)

1. Pnuema(character cultivation):

This domain is not about mental capability from memorizing details to manipulating numbers or abstract concepts instead,

There are 2 foci in this domain — encraty (self-control) and volition (self-will).

  1. Encraty (self-control) regards having the control when the desires or weaknesses set in. With this strengthened, "one will be less of a victim and subject to the mental derailment that discourages or distracts one from the task. "
  2. Volition (self-will) regards having the "determination and courage to maintain one’s stance"

The 2 foci must come from clear thinking and not from stubbornness .

2. Psyche(intellectual ability):

This domain focuses on mental faculty that empowers mental clarity and enhaces the range of awareness about various topics.

  • Build up mental facilities that comprises of acquired mental model and framework of thoughts to assist in the rationalization of all matters of rationality and reasoning.

With mental faculties and mental facilities building and compounding upon each other, the subject will greatly extend their horizon of insights and heighten their awareness.

Confidence requires evidence, you have to build the case over time to win it. Respect requires warrant, you have to earn it. All requires works, not words. If faking till you make it, is your own hope, it will only be a time that it falls on it’s own emptiness.

Objectives of Phase 1

Objectives of Phase 1

For Phase 1, the objective is

  1. Get used to understanding how to use the system. Start with a habit that is so easy and trivial for you, there is little to negligible inertia to begin with.
  2. Increase the task gradually and lightly.
  3. Micro-progress, cumulatively, and gradually gaining momentum, compounds into a big impact.
  4. Increment without conscious thinking. It should be undetectably gradual or impalpable.
  5. If you are able to do more than usual, that is consider a new stage.
  6. Be conscious and forgiving that you may retrograde. It may indicate that you are not ready to mature that stage yet.

Log the events and draw a chart to observe the trend.

List the barriers and impedance, both actual and psychological, honestly face them and resolved them innovatively as indicated by cardinal 3.

When new methods are found, re-attest them.

Hunting for Kairos -- Anti kairos

Hunting for Kairos -- Anti kairos

This is the central idea of getting the state and method to that state to re-engineer the person.

  • `Kairos` is a Greek concept of the state of `optimal time, place, way, and with whom ` of doing things.
  • 'Anti-Kairos' are the conditions that drag down a person’s motivatiions, mental energy and performance.

Kairosmaybe synchronous or asynchronous.

  1. Synchronous Kairos are cyclical or seasonable; they are time-based or specific.
  2. Asynchronous Kairos are event-based or conditional.

One has to mine the Kairos to adjust oneself for optimal, peak performance.

They can be mined from the daily logs and charts used to monitor and observe the “breath test”

(a way to help diagnose a number of conditions. Analogously to the “breath test” done to check how a person is breathing in medical diagnosis, by analyzing human endurance in this case, we can measure the amount work load a person can take, and the factors that determine it) of the game.

  • Tabulate the Kairos and Anti-Kairos , along with the methods that promote or discourage them, so that you can be aware of what they are.
  • With time and diligence, these methods become part of us, developing us into a state known as “subconscious competence”, effectively building an enhanced character and competency.
