You’re pretty much preaching to the choir here 😉
What about free software for the mind?
What I mean is the free software to unburden the mind and to get it operating optimumly…
That would be KHTK, wouldn’t it?
Well, KHTK is just a start. We need more people creating free software for the mind. Existing procedures of other therapies may be converted into free software that works well.
A breakthrough has been made with KHTK 1D. KHTK provides natural unburdening of the mind as compared to “shoveling of the mind” as in Scientology. Some the Scientology procedures may be used beneficially with KHTK approach after proper modification and testing. This is going to be a continuing KHTK project. KHTK essays may be accessed on VINAIRE’S BLOG. Search engines work.
The mind is great in generating software. Just look at the Internet. It is a great universe generated by software. Within the Internet, Facebook is another universe. Thus, there are universes withing universes and so on.
Is the same thing happening on another plane? Is there some software generating our physical universe? But that software is hidden… very deeply hidden.
I believe that this deeply hidden software is generated by the primary desire is to know the unknowable and that brings about all kinds of visualizations.
It is the belief in those visualizations that makes them solid. Thus, creating and believing in those creations is the genesis of any universe. These are cycles that are started, and which are now hanging out there.
Looking is the process of completing these cycles. There is a reversal. Beliefs are recognized as beliefs. Visualizations are recognized as visualizations. This leads to a completion of cycles. As cycles are completed they disappear. One comes to realize the genesis of these visualizations and beliefs. The source is not “you” a beingness… but the source is, once again, unknowable.
Thus, the primary characteristic of this deeply hidden software is the “desire to believe.” This universe is simply layers upon layers of belief. As we start to recognize these beliefs for what they are we start to reverse the cycle and simplify this software, which constructs our minds and constrains them.
The problem is not of having free software for the mind. There is plenty of it being generated by each one of us. The problem is that of knowing the ins and outs of the software that one is generating and using.
It is as if Geir’s customers start customizing the free software for their applications on their own. Why not? Geir can make a business out of teaching his customers how to use the free software. Geir’s customers then start to believe in their own ability for customizations. They create customized subroutines. Then they use those subroutines to create more wonderful customized routines. Ten they combine these routines to… This may ultimately result in a wonderful and completely automatic application that runs the whole business of the customer. It no longer requires any maintenance. After a while the customer comes to trust those layers upon layers of customization so much that it lets them operate from then on, and forgets about how he put it together under Geir’s tutelage.
After a while, the environment, in which that business is operating, undergoes a drastic change. The wonderful application is not designed to operate in this changed environment. Efforts to make it work with superficial changes at higher levels starts to generate problems in that application. Geir is nowhere around to help make the required changes at the deeper levels. The customer who was so very happy until now starts to get increasingly unhappy.
This is where we are with the mind. The free software is already there. We have piled upon it layers upon layers of customization. We have forgotten how we put all together. It is now time for “Geirs” to appear to help strip this “software” down to its basics and then help build it back up again to be more appropriate for the changed environment.
It requires the skill that generated this free software in the first place.
Except in the business sense, Geir is indeed around to help the customer adapt the software to new needs. He is creating a business upon these changing needs – to the customer’s delight.
Otherwise; Cool parallel 🙂
I think that people out there need to learn how they put their mind together in the first place. Under current circumstances this requires reverse engineering. This is where KHTK comes into picture.
Ok, Geir, it’s very easy from the customer point of view: free software doesn’t cost money, free software allow all the changes and the trends possible.
But the vendor will say: “My Silicon Valley boys were fed with lot of years of education (which costs money), used their precious brain to develop this software(which costs money) and finally, myself, as an employer, pay them money to develop a software.
So, brother, it’s very simple: you, the client, will have to pay me money in order to fully recover what I have spent with my employees.
So, Geir, my question is extremely simple: Where is the limit between free software and piracy, as long as in some countries you can be rounded-up if you simply download an mp3, but everybody can use Firefox, which is a free browser?
Congratulations for your smart video, it was easy to understand and very reliable!
