A
theory
of
reality
that
purports
to
show
that
the
being
encounters
the
real
and
the
unreal,
and
that
the
experience
is
the
real,
and
that
all
the
rest,
theunreal
is
agreement.
In
other
words,
that
experience, the
real,
is
pure
cause,
being
created
in
the
experiencing,
and
that
the unreal
is
pure
effect,
agreement,

of

A
dynamic
theC:u::y
_
of
the
mind
that
claims
it
to
be
a
linear
arrangement
of
multi-sensory
total
records
of
successive
moments
of
now,
whose
dynamics
leads
to
the
survival ofthe
being
or
what
it
takes
itself
to
be.
In
this
theory
ego
arises
as
p.
way
of
mind
funct.ioning
when
the
being
takes
itself
to
be
its
mind
and
functions
by
re-living
all
the
interconnected records
(that
have
threatened
survivial)
whenever
the
circuriistances
are
isomorphic
to
those
that
gave
origin to
them.

A
theory
that
intends
to
show
that
to
live
as
an
ego
is
to live
in
suffering
and
frustrat:iJon because
it
is
to
live
at
every
moment
the
emotions
of
past
experiences
in
a
manner
that
always
hides
the
present,
and
that
the
ego
disappears
when
the
being
becomes
aware
of the past
event
to
which
his
present
emotions
belong.

Everything
takes
place
in
the
dynamics
of the
mind
in
a
mechanistic
way,
that
is,
under
full
mechanicaI
determinism.
Themind
is
a
recording
machine
con-
stituted
by
records
that
through
its
operations
on
its
records secures
the survival of the
being;
and
when
the
mind
operates as
an
ego,
the
being
is
a
machine.
All
this
is
embedded
in
a
meta-theory
that
is
also
being
developed
along
the
training,
but
which
is
fully
expressed
in
its
culmination~
namely,
that
the
only
fundametal
for
existence
is
existence
as
a
resultthat
anything
that
is
is.
The
training
culminates
in
a
mood
of
amorality
(mutual
respect
without
value
judgement)
in
which
nothing
matters outsidethe
experience
in
the present,
with
experiential,
actual
or
potential,
disolutions
of the
ego
through
the
experience
that
anything
that
is
is,
as
well as
in
a
mood
of
liberation
of
a
burden
through
the
disappearance
of
value
judgement
as
a
featureof the
experience
in
the present.After
this
culmination
a
space
is
open
for
creativity
and
social
harmony
through
the
expression
of
the
theory
of
reality
in
a
dimension
that
includes the
reality
ofothers
in
the
reality
(experience)
of
each
individual as the
reality
of the
others,
and
treats
the
acceptance
of
the
present
as
a
starting
point
moment
after
moment
for the
new
moment.

The
training
is
successful
in
that
it
operates:
a}
involving
the
trainee
in
a
mood
of
amoral
self-awareness
as
a
member
of
a
class
of
integrity
failures,
b)
involving
the
trainee in
the operationof
self-awareness
of
his
particular failures
of
integrity
and,
c)
involving
the
trainee
in
the
acceptance
ofthe
power
of
logic
of
his
common
language
as
a
source
of
compe'lling
theoretical
experiences
when
operating
in
integrity.
This
is
not obtained
all
at
once'.
It
builds
up
along
the
training
starting
from
a
basic
truthfulness
that
is
brought
forth
by
the
mood
of self-awareness.
How
does
this
take
place?,
Mimy
ofthe
trainees
at
the
very
beginning
accept
verbal
characterizations
of
them by
the
trainer
in
the
form
of
~rhat
otherwise
would
be
considered
verbal
abuse.
This
takesplace
either
as
a
result
of
their
acceptance
that
the
characterization
applies
to
them,
or
their
unwillingness
to
lose
face
in
front
of
others
that
seem
untouched,
or as
a
result
of
their
unwillingness
to
lose
their
invested
money.
What
follows
is
that
they
stay
and
accept
a
course
of
interactions
that
leads
them
to
re!flect
upon
themselves,
either
through
reason
or
after
seeing
others
telling their
own
experiences
in
the
attempt
to
self-reflect,
with
the
outcome
that
the majority ofthe
trainees
eventuallyreveal
that
they
have
discovered
themselves
as
cheaters,
deceivers,
.
,iiars,
etc.
It
seems
that
this
cannot
be
avoided
by
the majority of
the
trainees
revealing
that
cheating,
deceiving,
pretending,are
as
much
part
of
our
present
social
experinece
as
our
continuous exposure
to
a
social
demand
for
truthfulness,
honesty,
and
respect.
That
we
human
beings
have
all
lied,
deceived
or
cheated
other
human
beings
or
ourselves
in
one
moment
or
another
of
our
lives,
and
that
we
have
all
in
one
moment
or
another
of
our
lives
denied
to others
or ourselves
that
we
have done
so,
justifying
our
denial
with
some
reason,
is
the
first
fundamental"
truth
on which
the
outcome
of
the
training
depends.
The
second
one
is
that
our
social
dynamics
operates
with
a
basic
hypocricy,
namely,
that
we
teach
our
children basic
ways
of
conduct
such
as
truthfulness,
honesty,
tolerance, respect
to
others
and
ourselves,
etc.
and
We
live
adult
lives
that
validates
a
society
that
continuously negates
the
validityof
such
conducts.
AS
a
result
of
this
permanent
contradiction
we
live
in
pain
and
arereceptivefor
those
accusations
which,
if
they
occur
in
an
amoral
domain,
trigger
in
us
self-reflection.
Socialization,
living
in
a
linguistic
human
domain,
requires
love,
that
is
unqualified
acceptance
that
