Imagine… You’ve arranged a plane flight and, for some reason, you later choose another flight at a different time. Or you’re introduced to someone who is very annoying. Instinctively you want to move on and get away. Or imagine that you can’t remember where you left your wallet last night. The Thought Dial™ can help with all of these situations. Life is filled with decisions. Making the right decision, moving in the most beneficial direction, can be a valuable and sometimes lifechanging ability. Omarr’s original discovery is: Our subconscious knows many answers if only we can get past the conscious mind to be able to know what it is trying to tell us. By using numbers, we can trick ourselves to get past the conscious mind and therein are our answers.

Life is full of hopes, surprises and decisions. In any hour you need to make many decisions, from what outfit to wear to work to whether or not you’ll pick a winning lottery ticket. Is this the right person for the rest of your life? Did you lose your passport or just misplace it? Knowing what road to travel on can be tough. It’s not easy to know: Which is the right course to take? What if the answer was inside you all the time? What if all it took to find the answer was a throw of the dice…or a turn of the dial?

Introduction
by Jeraldine Saunders and Steve McCrea This special edition of The Thought Dial™ adds graphics, a personal Pocket Thought Dial™ and pictures. In choosing the name of this updated version of The Thought Dial™, we continue Sydney’s clever innovation: Write a book about numerology without using the word “number” in the title. His point is clear. One doesn’t have to “believe” in numerology to find and use life’s patterns. According to Sydney, we can detect and interpret these patterns and we can predict with a high degree of accuracy what comes next. From page 14 (Thought Dial™): “We stand in a balance between the intellectual and the emotional worlds.” Sydney believed that much knowledge of almost any subject is hidden within in our minds. The Thought Dial™ is a key to discovering and bringing that knowledge to light.

Jeraldine on the cover of her book The Love Boats. Sydney was also a gifted teacher. His words inspired Jeraldine and Steve, who approach numbers in different ways because their brains are very differently wired. Two opposites in math ability, both Jeraldine and Steve use Sydney’s teachings in their daily lives.

The Thought Dial for the 21st Century

Jeraldine was not a confident math student in school, but Sydney made it easy for her to grasp the patterns that guide numerology. Although Steve excelled at calculus and trigonometry, it was in a mechanical and unemotional way. Thanks to Sydney, Steve learned to perceive emotional qualities in numbers and “feel” differences between them, to listen to the trends, and to sense the patterns that numbers represent. Both Jeraldine and Steve found that numbers aren’t just quantities. Numbers can actually empower and even guide us through everyday decisions. Does this sound too good to be true? Why not read on?! The cover of The Thought Dial™ carries this quotation from the artist and author Henry Miller:

The value of The Thought Dial™ lies in the discovery that all the answers – sooner or later -- to all questions must come from within. When one becomes truly aware of this ancient truth, one will learn to ask the right questions. The first thing to find out is – WHO is asking what? Second, are you prepared to accept the response provoked?
The Thought Dial™ helps us locate lost objects, helps uncertain people move ahead with projects, and guides our inner selves as we search for that “missing something.” Sydney’s invention shows us that “we can fix it” (and actually change the outcome) when we encounter negative or confusing situations. The Pocket Thought Dial™ (at the end of the book) is a compact version in an updated format that you can put to use quickly.

What is “The Cycle”?
Think about the evolution of an idea. What are the stages from beginning to end of the development of a product or service? Step 1: Start! An idea comes to you either in a flash or in phases via slow evolution. A thought germinates, something sprouts, there’s a start, and now it begins to grow.

Step 2: Retreat, Recharge Next you need to prepare and protect the growth of the idea. Recharge, prepare for the next stage. This is a time to be patient. Attend to home, family, postpone decisions, be watchful.

The idea or product needs concentrated energy and enthusiasm. Be positive, motivated, cheerful. You must expand, but be careful: focus your efforts.

Step 4: Develop the Details Get to work! It’s time to pay attention to “the little things.” Double check. Work done now will build the future of the product’s success. Use persistence and determination, but make no sudden changes.

Step 5: Communicate Travel, investigate, seek variety. Go ahead! Look for something new or different. Do it now. Be creative. This is the go-ahead! Now is the time to publicize your product. Go national, go international!

Step 6: Harmonize. Be a diplomat. At this point in the cycle, diplomacy is needed with a focus on domestic issues. (Don’t put off the situation.) The project is going well and you should use this time to attend to your family (or deal with internal matters in the “home” of the product). Clear up a situation at home that has been allowed to go on and on while the project has been nurtured.

Focus on family! Step 7: Pause to Evaluate There is a chance that you will lose sight of your goal. Your mind might be distracted or you see what you want to see, not what is. Self-delusion could set in. Respond by analyzing, but don’t take action yet.

Frequently Asked Questions
1. If there are nine principal numbers (1 through 9) from beginning to end, are we all on nine-day cycles? Answer: The key idea is to observe when you are “flowing” and when you are “ebbing,” when to push and when to wait. 2. How do biorhythms fit into the Omarr Method and the Thought Dial? Answer: Anyone familiar with biorhythms knows that our physical, emotional and mental beings each has highs and lows. Jeraldine recalls visiting a highly classified military base at the invitation of a general. She was told, “We keep track of every person’s biorhythms.” This makes sense, since the work at the base was sensitive and the general wanted everyone on the job to be in peak condition. The principle behind biorhythms allows us to know when your body is charging (lows) and when it is in top condition (highs). There are two “critical” days when the cycle switches between expending energy and starts recharging. In the 28-day emotional cycle, day 14 and day 28 are the two days that are “critical.” In some facilities, such as air-traffic control centers, anyone with two critical days occurring on the same day is given a day off. Complicated charts can tell us when we have these days, but the Thought Dial can tell us how our subconscious is reacting to the whole soup of forces that we swim in. During one biorhythm cycle, we might have less energy available than during a different biorhythm cycle. It would be nice to have a quick way to “dial in” to ourselves to know “how are we doing today?” That’s the special convenience that Sydney Omarr gave us with this method. Let’s read on and learn more. 3. Astrologers often talk about “Mercury in retrograde,” meaning that when a planet is in a certain position, everybody is under its influence and communication tends to be hampered. How does the Thought Dial interact with universal forces?

Now you’re getting it.

Cycles surround us.

The Thought Dial for the 21st Century

Answer: , yet we are part of groups. Psychologists can place each of us (unique with DNA and fingerprints) into categories. How will one group of people tend to respond under stress compared to another group of people? Why do some people say, “I don’t sweat the small stuff…and it’s all small stuff,” while other people sometimes get overwhelmed (or allow themselves to become overwhelmed) by situations? The Thought Dial “dials into” your subconscious and gives you a response, somewhere between 1 and 9, that helps you evaluate where you are in your cycle. Is today a good day to push ahead? Perhaps for you. If you know something about what stage in the cycle your work partner is on, you can coordinate better. “My personal day is 7 today,” a partner might tell you, so you know that it will be better for your partner to deal with details tomorrow. “I’m having two critical days next week, so I’m not working on Wednesday,” an air traffic controller might tell you. These are personal cycles that take place in the mix of a universal tug of the moon and other forces. Many cultures recognize the importance of moon cycles, which can be linked to biorhythms (especially the 28-day emotional cycle). I’ve noticed that when the moon is waxing, I tend to sleep less and I have more energy to expend. It doesn’t happen in every lunar cycle because some days are “critical” in my biorhythms and I don’t have the energy to use. But when I notice an approaching full moon and I have a lot of energy and I’m typing for four hours withut a break, I can explain that to myself. “I must be in a high part of my biorhythms,” I think to myself. “This is a good opportunity to take.” I know that later in the cycle, perhaps while the moon is waning, I’ll have lower energy, I’ll be less likely to want to put words into a computer, and that will be a time to do yard work or repetitive house chores.

Each of us is unique

There are three biorhythm cycles, physical (23 days), mental (33 days) and emotional (28 days). Knowing something about our personal cycles gets us closer to the advice given roughly 2500 years ago by Socrates: Know yourself. Biorhythms are one way to explain the ease and obstacles that we experience, the highs and lows that come our way, the patterns of our lives. The Omarr Method called The Thought Dial™ is just another way to “dial in” to our personal interaction with forces around us. Let’s get started.

Your First Calculation
If asked to pick a number between one and 100, you will probably come up with several “favorite” numbers. The genius of Sydney’s system is to get beyond the “favorites” and connect with the “vibration” of your underlying thought. That’s why it’s called the thought “dial.” We can use three numbers to “dial in” to the heart of the situation, past our mental gyrations. Why three numbers? When asked for two numbers, most of us can think ahead: 4 and 5 is 9. 16 and 4 is 20. But three numbers are beyond the limit of what many of us can instantly add together. More than three numbers gets in the way of many people’s intuition. Ask for four numbers and some people will give three numbers, then pause. Now the “instant” is lost because the rational mind is involved in selecting and editing to find the “right” fourth number. The “sudden impulse” has passed. Now, let’s try a simple first calculation. Think about a current project. Perhaps it is a new addition to your house. Perhaps it’s a dream destination for your next vacation or you can’t decide what to have for lunch. You want to tap your subconscious. Think of the topic and then quickly say the first three numbers between 0 and 100 that come to mind. ___ + ___ + ___ Go ahead – add the numbers together. _____ If the result is bigger than 9, add the two digits together. For example, the numbers 4 + 8 + 6 = 18 18 is the result, so 1 + 8 = 9. If your three numbers total more than 300, you’re unusual (and you weren’t following directions). Most people select numbers under 32 when asked for three numbers – why? The numbers usually correspond to a date in a month. Example: a person might choose 5 15 25
22 The Thought Dial for the 21st Century

This person likes fives! 5 + 1 + 5 + 2 + 5 = 18 1 + 8 = 9  9 is the reduced number. Now that you have a number -- reduced to a single digit -- apply the result to the chart at the back of the book: The Pocket Thought Dial. Look at the end of the book and read the entry under “Your subconscious wants to say…” The result will give you a hint about what your subconscious is focusing on.

Using the Pocket Thought Dial™
The Pocket Thought Dial™ was first created in 1982 when Steve started carrying photocopies of the “Lost Objects” section of The Thought Dial. He boiled down pages 78 through 82 to a small index card. On the back side of the card he summarized the advice or indications from pages 36 to 56 (“Subconscious Thoughts”). Anyone reading the section on subconscious thoughts will immediately see that some material had to be omitted to fit onto a pocket version. The challenge for you, the user, is to use the Pocket Thought Dial™ as a guide for further investigation and as a memory jogger. If you choose to read only the advice on the Pocket Thought Dial™, you will limit the interpretation. Best results

come when the user has absorbed the essence of the chapter on “Subconscious Thoughts” before using the pocket version. Step 1: Familiarize yourself with the chapters on “Finding Lost Objects” and “Subconscious Thoughts.” Step 2: Make a photocopy of the two pages showing the Pocket Thought Dial™. Read the Pocket Thought Dial™. Notice that some material has been omitted from the Thought Dial™. Remember to keep those omissions in mind when using the Pocket Thought Dial™. Step 3: Fold the photocopy and place it in your wallet or purse. Make an extra copy for the kitchen and another for your car. You’ll find these extra copies very useful. Step 4: The next time you want to tap your subconscious or to find a lost object, reach in your pocket or purse and pull out your copy of the Pocket Thought Dial™. Follow the simple steps we’ve laid out. Now consider the input that your subconscious is sharing with you. As Henry Miller wrote,

“The first thing to find out is WHO is asking what? Second, are you prepared to accept the response provoked?”

How to “Cast Out Nines”
Here is a mathematical trick for you to use when reducing (or simplifying) the three numbers. For many people, “casting out nines” makes the task of simplifying numbers much easier. The pattern is based on the decimal system. Examples: 1+8=9 2+7=9 3+6=9

24

The Thought Dial for the 21st Century

4+5=9 1+2+3+3=9 And there are dozens of other ways to make a reduced total of 9. Let’s use the same combinations but instead add a zero to one of the numbers. 10 + 8 = 18 2 + 70 = 72 3 + 60 = 63 40 + 5 = 45 1+8=9 7+ 2 = 9 6+3=9 4+5=9 2+7=9

1 + 20 + 3 + 3 = 27

We see that adding a zero doesn’t change the reduced result. Do you see how easy it is to simplify? This can be fun! The principle of “adding a zero” is helpful. When we reduce or simplify the number to a single digit, we ignore the zero and we can also ignore the nine. 1+7=8 1 + 9 + 8 = 17 1 + 7 = 8 (same result)

THE MAGICAL NINE Now let’s move on to sums that don’t reduce to 9: 23 + 24 = 47 13 + 38 = 51 4 + 7 = 11 or 2 5+1=6

WAIT. There’s an easier way to reduce 23 + 24. Sydney told me, “When you see a 9, ignore it. Get rid of it. Look at what is left over.”
Life Happens: You Can Fix It 25

23 + 24 = 2 3 2 4 2 + 3 + 4+2 = 9+2 Toss out the nine! The result of 23 + 24 is 2.

2

4 + 7 = 11 1 + 1 = 2 Hey, that’s the same answer! The reduced number of 47 is 2. Let’s look at the second example. 13 + 38 = 51 It’s not 51 (in the “reduced” or “simplified” form). It is “6”. (5 + 1 6). But we can arrive at the number 6 by looking for a 9.

1 +3 + 3 + 8

…. Let’s ignore the 9 (1 + 8) and focus on the remaining numbers. That’s how we arrive at the simple result of 6. 1 + 8 + 3 + 3 = (9) + 3 + 3 = 6. ====== Sydney used this technique to quickly handle numbers that were too big for straight adding in his head. If a person says that his three numbers are 4, 2 and 3, it’s easy for many of us to see “9” as the answer. But what if the person say “24, 32 and 33”? Throw out the nines. That’s what “cast out” means! Anytime you SEE a 9, ignore it. SLOW: 24, 32 and 33 = 89 8 + 9 = 17 1+7=8 QUICK: 24, 32 and 33 = (2 + 4 + 3) + 2 + 3 + 3 = (9) + 8 Here are some examples of the nines that we see regularly. Example 1. Look for combinations that make 9. The person says “3, 5, 6.” In your mind, you see 3, 5, 6. You can ignore the 3 and 6. You can say, “Ah, your subconscious is concerned with a question involving communication or travel.” 8

26

The Thought Dial for the 21st Century

Example 2. 10 is 1. The person says “13, 25, 86.” In your mind, you see groups: 1,3,

2, 5, then 8 + 6.
+ 6.

The 1 + 3 + 5 is ignored and you focus on 2 + 8 1, so you can learn to see 2 + 8 + 6.

Hmmm. 2 + 8 = 10

10 + 6 1 + 6. You can say, “Ah, your subconscious is telling you to avoid contracts, don’t make any decisions now. You don’t have enough information.” If you say, “The total is 7, so…” you will help the other person learn how to do this. If you want to appear like a mind reader, don’t say what the total is. ;-) Just say, “The numbers tell me that your subconscious is concerned with the following situations…” Example 3. Learn the total for the current year to save time. If the year is 2010, the total is 3. ( 2 + 0 + 1 + 0 = 3). Perhaps the person says “My birthday is April 12.” In your mind, you add the 4 (April) + 1 + 2 (= 7), then the year total (3), giving you 10 or 1. You can say, “Ah, at this point in the cycle, you are ready to break with the past and begin something new.” The Personal Cycle You can describe a person’s cycle with this system. We can assume that, every 9 years, there is a completion and a new beginning. Some skeptics might ask, “How can we assume that every person at age 10, 19, 28, 37, etc. has a new beginning? We can have a new beginning any time we want!” That’s where the person’s birthday comes into play. The calendar year (2010, for example) plus the birth day and birth month combine to give a vibration or a potential opportunity. Example: Birth day plus birth month plus this year. If the person’s birthday is 12 May, in 2009 the personal year is 12 + 5 + 2009 = 12 + 5 + 2 + 0 + 0 + 9 = 1 (2 + 5 + 2) = 1 “The start of a cycle.” Who is in charge? The classic slogan of “personal consultants” (or “life coaches”) is “The forces of nature IMPEL, they don’t COMPEL.” You might

Nobody has tied your legs to a chair and forced beer down your throat. You are not compelled to do much in your life (but it is often convenient to say “the devil made me do it” or “I lost control of the situation” or “I had no choice”). The message of this book is that “life happens.” What can you and I do to fix the situation? How can we look at these forces as IMPULSIONS and not compulsions? How can we regain control of the situation?

Some Firsthand Experiences with The Thought Dial™
Let’s start with my favorite story – how The Thought Dial™ helps a person with ADD (Attention Deficit). I call the condition “variable attention ability.” I have the ability to vary my level of attention or degree of attention. Sometimes I am able to focus well. At other times I am not paying attention and whatever I’m doing at the time becomes hidden! If I handled papers during my “low attention” phase, I often don’t remember where I left the papers. This means I need to walk around, retracing my steps, to find the lost or misplaced papers. When I was 14 years old, I misplaced an important sheet of paper. I placed it somewhere that I knew I would remember – so that when I needed the paper in the future, I would be able to find that sheet. Six months passed and…yes, I couldn’t find that important sheet. I turned over every book on my desk and went through every drawer…and then I found The Thought Dial™. I put the image of that sheet in my mind and closed my eyes. I gave three numbers and the total came to 3. “Look North, among papers.” Well, I was sure that the Dial was wrong because I HAD looked through all my papers. Oh, what about the papers on the bulletin board? Right where I left it! THERE was that sheet. Since then, I misplaced The Thought Dial™ so often that eventually I compiled an index card with short sentences about where to find lost objects. When I use The Thought Dial™, I tend to focus more and I’m sure that’s why I find the lost object. The actual mechanism is unimportant, since the result is the same: that object is no longer lost. As a tutor, I see at least one student with ADD each week, so in a year I introduce at least 50 students to The Thought Dial™. It’s fun to see kids learn about “casting out nines” and other patterns. The convenience of the Pocket Thought Dial™ means more kids can carry with them the “Lost Object” words to jog their memories.

What people say about The Thought Dial Testimonials
From the Fifth Edition of The Thought Dial™ “I have your book, Thought Dial™. I use it all the time. And the answers come out right eight to nine times out of ten.” Buffalo, NY “I agree that relaxation is a pre-requisite for good results. I got the daily double at the race course on one occasion with it.” New York, N.Y.

In the sixth edition, Sydney commented: “The Locating Lost Articles section is of tremendous value. Why? Because it works. Naturally this makes it valuable. But why does it work? Here I cannot say with certainty. In The Thought Dial™, we have uncovered a principle. But, like electricity and magnetism, this principle can be used without our understanding it. We have something we can utilize without knowing all the answers to why it works. “The big question around here for months has been, “Can we remain at Carnegie Hall or will we have to move?” The Thought Dial™ said, ‘Wait and see – no news is good news.’ And so it has been. While have the building is now empty, we are still here and plan to stay, with expectation of new management coming in any day from now.” Ariel Yvon Taylor New York, N.Y.

Jeraldine recalls…
“Sydney used to dislike certain numbers in some situations. It seemed like 7 could rarely be useful, since it is associated with delusion and deception. “Don’t sign any legal documents today,” he used to caution me when my totals came to 7. The number 9 had several strong associations, too. Sydney was booked on a radio show with a popular talk show host … who was out sick that evening. His replacement was his wife, who asked, “How is my husband doing?” Sydney asked for three numbers and the sum came back as 9. “The end of a cycle.” Sydney made some talk about how her husband was preparing for the next project and the wife started talking about their plans. Sydney was relieved, because in that situation a number 9 usually means “an end.” The topic was changed, the conversation moved on, but Sydney’s intuition told him that the husband would not be returning to work on the radio station The husband died three weeks later. There are so many testimonials.

Selections from Sydney’s Thought Dial

Sydney Omarr wrote a book about numerology without using the word “numerology” or “numbers” in the title. By doing so, he attempted to get past the initial reaction that many rational people have against the mantic arts. He introduced the idea that numbers are a channel to our inner wisdom and understanding. Here is a reproduction of the first 160 pages of his book, published in several editions in the 1960s, with the addition of helpful graphics, photos and highlighted quotes.

Symbols (What is behind the numbers?)
In the Thought Dial™, Sydney laid out the psychological connections linked to numbers. Let’s start with an exercise. Write the 11 numbers used in Sydney’s system. 1______________ 2______________ 3______________ 4______________ 5______________ 6______________ 7______________ 8______________ 9______________ 11_____________ 22 _____________

Now think of two words or phrases that you associate with these numbers. Go ahead, don’t hesitate.

Hey. Don’t look at the next page.

Do the exercise.

Write words that come to mind when you look at the eleven numbers (1-9, 11 and 22). … and then look at these numbers:

A Tribute to Sydney
The Omarr Method starts with the idea that numbers have significance. There’s a reason why we think about certain numbers. There’s psychology behind numbers, why the number 3 feels better than the number 7 or 9. The fellow who helped me see the importance of numbers was Sydney Omarr. Millions of people knew him as an astrologer. However, to me, he was a magician and a mentor who made numbers come alive. Sydney helped the skeptical mathematician in me to see significance behind “mere random numbers.” I was 12 years old when I met Sydney. He impressed me with seamless tricks ranging from magic (hidden coins and cards) to the entertainment of numbers.

Sydney taught me about the cycle of numbers. His confident, knowledgeable manner impressed me. He demonstrated patterns, he showed me how to “cast out nines,” how to reduce numbers. “You can figure this in your head,” he told me. I’m now a math teacher and often I’m called on to provide examples to students. Being a teacher means more than demonstrating how formulas are applied to the real world. Teachers are also mentors,
204 The Thought Dial for the 21st Century

and I often ask myself, “How can I show my students the value of a mentor?” In his book, My World of Astrology, Sydney devotes a large part of the book to a TV appearance in 1951 when he was challenged in a debate. He was a young man, under 30 years old, and he was asked to defend astrology. He recounts in his book how he went back in his mind to when he first heard the word “astrology.” This incident is also reported in Norma Lee Browning‘s book. He couldn’t remember the name of his high school teacher, but he recalled that she dismissed astrology as a “pseudo science.” That teacher did more than anyone to spur the young Sydney to find out more about numbers, angles and patterns. She sparked a passion that grew into more than 40 million books in print. Focus The part of the biography that I repeat to my students is not WHAT Sydney focused on, but it was the fact that he focused. His passion, his interests, his focus of energy on one subject made the difference in his life. Up to that point, he was a bored student in high school. From that point on, he was on fire. Once he found his focus, Sydney completed his university degree in Mexico after serving in World War Two. His part-time consulting work even paid for his studies – yet another example of how he is a good role model for today’s teenagers. Sydney recounts in his biography that at the moment he was facing the television audience, he thought about that teacher in high school who ridiculed astrology. Thanks to that teacher, who was an “anti-mentor,” Sydney became curious and read one book after another about the stars. He honed his writing ability and built a vibrant vocabulary. Astrology became his interest and business. While still a university student, Sydney published a book for each sign. His great personal achievement was creating an industry for himself, using just the power between his ears and his ability to bring together information from dozens of books. Detractors of astrology will disagree with the next statement: There is actually a place for astrology in the school system. We should discuss its historical significance and its vocabulary. By not discussing astrology in school, we teachers shut out about 25% of
Life Happens: You Can Fix It 205

the students who might be inspired to learn more vocabulary through the use of astrology. (Do you remember reading sun sign descriptions?) Words like cardinal and mutable have specific meanings in astrology that could be extended into general verbal use. You don’t have to “believe” in astrology to get benefit from its vocabulary. [Jeraldine adds: “Astrology is not a belief. One accepts it, just as one accepts that spring follows winter.”] Sydney created not only his own success, but he created his identity. He changed his last name (Kimmelman) to the more exotic sound of “Omarr,” and changed the “I” to “y” in his first name. He created his future. Instead of complaining about math, he made it fun. He took to heart the aphorism, “Each day we decide who we will be.” Although his mind wandered at school, he used it well. Dreamer, author, artist and a craftsman. He could inject enthusiasm and inspiration in people who read his works and heard him speak. And I hope he inspires you. He was Sydney Omarr, author, journalist, magician, counselor, entrepreneur and mentor… and my lifelong influence. -- Steve

Don’t stand alone when you face the night Use Sydney’s logic to ease your plight This positive thought will light your way: “What would Sydney do or say?” You can call up the image of Sydney. You can hear his voice, stable, calm, reassuring, asking you, “Listen, give me three

We tend to move toward that upon which we dwell. So dwell well. Recited often by Jeraldine Saunders, Sydney’s wife.

An Observation about ADD
Sydney admitted that he was not the most attentive student. His mind would wander. Today we might label him “ADD” (someone who has an “attention deficit”). The message for students who don’t do well in classrooms is “look what you can do when you have ADD!” Sydney went on to pursue a passion and read hundreds of books, then wrote dozens of books. In other words, ADD is not really a deficit in attention – it’s a variable ability to pay attention. When something interests the ADD person, there’s a strong focus available. They can become very good at whatever they become passionate about. If you live with ADD or if your child lives with ADD, sometimes called ADHD (H for “hyperactive”), the key to take away from this page is “find the passion.” Whatever the passion is, pursue it. Whatever the passions are, pursue them. Then build a school curriculum and a career around those passions. Sydney did it. You can, too. Courage comes from the soul within, The man must furnish the will to win. So figure it out for yourself, my lad You were born with all the great have had With your equipment they all began, so Get hold of yourself and say, “I can!” That poem by Edgar Guest keeps me on track and pushes me even now to complete this chapter and eventually my part of this book. It’s Sydney’s example of focus and attention that inspires me to stay on target. I wish you that same power of focus. You can!

Insights into “The Cycle”
THE FAMOUS “S” CURVE Economists refer to a famous “S” curve that describes the fate of many family fortunes. The innovator (the first generation) creates an invention and makes a fortune, the next generation grows and sustains the invention into a mainstream product (and continues to maintain the fortune), and the grandchildren live off the residual profits of the original invention. If there isn’t a new invention to spark new growth, the family’s fortunes dwindle. Cornelius Vanderbilt donated $1 million to start Vanderbilt University. Three generations later, there was a reunion of the many grandchildren and great-grandchildren of Vanderbilt (on the 75th anniversary of the university’s founding). Not one person in the third generation had a net worth above one million dollars. What happened? The “S” curve refers to the creation, sustaining and distribution or dilution of wealth. Sydney Omarr describes this cycle when he talks about the history of a successful new product. The pattern of creation, reflection, expansion, hard work, communication, consolidation, confusion, reward for hard work and the ending or unraveling is predictable (or at least easy to describe with hindsight). The outcome is greatly determined by timing. Omarr’s method concluded that our subconscious mind is closer to knowing the next turning point than the conscious mind. How can we tap the subconscious? That’s the genius behind the Thought Dial™.

208

This is the shape of the “S” curve of innovation and maintenance. The other possibility shows a decline. (The cycle is often used to describe the evolution of a product: first, introduce a product, then expand production, then watch new competitors steal market share). Source:

A sigmoid curve is a curve having an "S" shape. Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sigmoid_function
The following comments were found on a blog by Rajagopal Sukumar of Chennai, India. The author’s points can be used as a way of describing the typical cycle. While the saying “success begets success” has almost become a cliché, there is no dearth of stories covering inexplicable failures of extremely successful people and corporations. Reading some of these stories and the books on this topic led me to the question: What if there is something fundamental that we are missing about success that leads to all these spectacular failures? S Curve My research brought me to the fascinating concept of the S Curve. Apparently, when you plot expertise with respect to time, it traces an S-shaped curve.

209

(The author describes the process of learning a skill, going from slow acquisition to gaining more dexterity over time. After gaining some mastery, the need for learning more diminishes, so the top of the curve tends to flatten. The author calls the top of the S curve “the slope of diminishing returns.”)

Success is Transitory
Many people succumb to the effects of hubris, which gives them a false sense of security because the world believes and acknowledges that they are the experts in that field. Unfortunately, the world keeps moving and some other new skill becomes important, which renders this expert obsolete. (The author discusses how “success causes people to fail because some strengths have become so accentuated to now be the cause of their failure.” He then asks, “Is there a way out? What do we do after we reach the peak of the S curve?”)

Conclusion: Start a New S Curve
One answer is that we can start a new S curve. By analogy, consider mountain climbing, which is sort of similar to learning new skills. Initially, we start at the bottom with a clear estimate and a timeline to climb the mountain. As we come to grips with the terrain of the mountain, we are able to climb more efficiently and reach the summit. Having reached the summit, we cannot stay there for long, depending on the altitude. In a similar way, when we reach the top of the S curve of a particular skill, we should start the S curve of the next important skill. Ultimately, our skill set should look like a mountain range with a lot of mountains (or a lot of S curves) in it representing various skills that we have learned. Many of us trace multiple S curves in our lives as we learn new skills, but mostly these are incremental or evolutionary transitions. It is harder to make major or revolutionary transitions—ones that involve us moving from one career to a completely different one—say, a teacher becoming a politician. (The author looked at a list of 100 greatest people published by Time Magazine. He looked for people who were successful in at least three unrelated careers. He found two people: Albert Schweitzer, musician,

210

The Thought Dial for the 21st Century

theologian, doctor, humanitarian, social reformer -- and Benjamin Franklin, printer, publisher, inventor, statesman, politician). Many scientists have shown that when you expect something to turn out a certain way, it almost always does—a self-fulfilling prophecy. As a note of caution, while we should be aware of the S Curve and how it affects us, we should not automatically assume and expect that the S Curve will play out no matter what we do. —Rajagopal Sukumar

In short:
Sydney Omarr describes the cycle of innovation, development and decline. He points to an important way out of decline: Start your next S curve – begin a new cycle. As Rajagopal Sukumar wrote in the excerpt quoted above, “Is there a way out? What do we do after
we reach the peak of the S curve? One answer is that we can start a new S curve.” Sydney’s The Thought Dial™ moves us in this direction. Rather than focus on the status of decline, think about your next S Curve.

The Magic of Numbers
C’mon, Steve, you’re a rational guy. Do you REALLY “believe” in numerology? Do numbers REALLY control our lives?
Sydney was clever. He created a book about numerology without using “numerology” or “numbers” in the title. The Omarr System introduced the idea that numbers are a channel to our inner wisdom and understanding. This edition for the 21st Century is a reproduction of his book, published in several editions in the 1950s and 1960s, with the addition of graphics, photos and highlighted quotes. Let’s applaud Sydney for creating a commercial success. But let’s step back from the book and look at the topic of numerology. Is there something to this idea that numbers are linked to our psychology? If I park in space number 421 instead of 423, will I have a bad day? No -- and yes. Numbers don’t control our lives. WE control our lives. We make the choices. We can choose to have a bad day. We are responsible for our decisions. There are forces that push us toward or away from our goals. There are patterns in those forces. What we need is a way to organize and describe those forces. That’s the beauty of The Thought Dial™. We can assign a neutral name to certain forces. ONE is the force to begin, NINE is the force to complete. We don’t have to use terms from the zodiac and we don’t have to use astronomical terms (conjunction, opposition) to conjure images of astrology. We can describe the typical stages of a cycle in ordinary English. Numerology does a good job of giving us the vocabulary that enables us to look at patterns and cycles. I don’t believe that a number or a planet is compelling me to do something. The sum of my choices in the past have pushed me into my current circumstance. What shorthand method can I use to
212 The Thought Dial for the 21st Century

describe my current situation? Am I at the middle of the cycle? IF so, should I be aware of self-deception or is it time to expand, communicate and travel? I use Thought Dial to set a theme. If I tell myself that “now is the time to act,” I will be confident. People around me will be more likely to respond to my positive mental attitude. I send out a vibration. If I think that today is not a good day to sign a legal document, The Thought Dial™ works for me. Steve Note: Steve is an author, educator and video producer. Most parents want to believe that their children are being taught by rational adults unswayed by ephemeral forces and who don’t believe in unseen agents, other than gravity and the wind. The key to numerology as part of a child’s education is to promote verbal dexterity. A child can use the language of astrology and numerology without necessarily believing that there is a “force” that is propelling each individual. It doesn’t matter what you believe. You can and will benefit from this book. You are a stronger user of English if you can comfortably use the vocabulary that Sydney employed in his writings.

“The Thought Dial is not based on a belief. It is an acceptance.”
-- Jeraldine Saunders.

The Pocket Thought Dial™

Tu Subconsciente quiere decir…

Empiézalo. Rompe con el pasado. Avanza, vete por tu cuenta, actua. Empieza nuevos projectos, toma la iniciativa. Sí! 2 Ve con la corriente. Si no hay noticias es buena noticia, espera. Recarga, prepárate para la próxima face. Se paciente. Atiende tu casa y a tu familia, pospón decisiones, está alerta. 3 Confusión. Estás tratando de hacer demasiado a la vez. Está alegre. Se entusiasta (sin extravagancia). Evita la energía perdida. No te decaigas. Te quieres extender, pero enfoca tus esfuerzos. 4 Enfócate en tu trabajo, no dejes los detalles a otros. Revisa dos veces. Trabaja ahora para construir el futuro. Persistencia, determinación, no cambios repentinos. 5 Cambia, viaja, comunicación, variedad. Adelante. Investiga algo nuevo o diferente, hazlo ahora, se creativo. (Cuidado: Evita excesos). 6 Busca armonía. Escucha a los demás. Atiende los asuntos de tu hogar. No te demores. No compliques las cosas actuando a la fuerza. Se diplomático. Repara algún descuido. 7 Está alerta de no engañarte a ti mismo. No firmes contratos. Saca tiempo para reflexionar. Evita obligaciones. Permanece solo - no sentiras soledad. Analiza, examina, simplifica. 8 Sigue adelante para que coseches las recompensas. Haz tus propias oportunidades. Ambición, finanzas e inversiones. La ganancia material sera tuya si trabajas duro. Hazlo ahora. 9 Completa. Termina. No empiezes un projecto. Estancarse es aprisionarse a si mismo. Es el momento de actuar vigorosamente. Trabaja para traer un ciclo a su fin. Prepárate para la nueva era. 11 Confia en tu intuición. Hazle caso a tu corazón. Evita sugerencias de ser “más práctico”. Escucha tu conciencia. Aprovecha la oportunidad. 22 Piensa en grande. Evita los detalles. No comprometas tus ideales. Se diplomático. La ambición está alta, se sensitivo. No seas insignifacante o ineficiente.

The Thought Dial for the 21st Century

Let’s conclude with Henry Miller’s observation…

The value of the Thought Dial lies in the discovery – sooner or later -that all the answers to all questions must come from within. When one becomes truly aware of this ancient truth, one will learn to ask the right questions. The first thing to find out is this: are you prepared to accept the response that you provoked?
