How To Avoid Your Own Authority
'Authority' - spelled with a capital 'A' in Possibility Management - means: 'conscious Authority'.
This is Authority that can only be conferred upon yourself by the power of your own Authority.
The way to avoid your own Authority is to give authority to someone else, or to the beliefs, rules, or customs of an institution such as a religion, military, corporation, country, culture, or government.
Your Authority is an energetic substance inside of you.
It is the spunk, gumption, chutzpah, volition, balls, audacity, fierceness, Pirate... inside of you that you can use to Authorize your power to Choose, to Declare, to Ask, to Hold Space, to Navigate Space, to Take A Stand, to Shift Identity, to Improvise, to go Nonlinear, to go Unreasonable, to Cause Transformation, to Serve your Pearl, your Bright Principles, and your Archetypal Lineage, and to build and inhabit new Archearchal Gameworlds that make the existing ecocidal gameworlds irrelevant.
No one can take your Authority away from you.
If your Authority is weak, or confused, or missing, it is because you have hidden your Authority away somewhere, inside or outside of yourself for a particular reason.
You have the power to find that reason.
You have the power to make that reason conscious, and reconsider if you want to continue submitting yourself to that reason or not.
The 5-Body shift that would occur in you if you decide to take back your Authority - in reality, not just in your mind - would most effectively take place through an Emotional Healing Process that you arrange for yourself with one or two other Spaceholders from your Team.
If you behave as if someone else (a person, an institution, or a belief system) has your Authority, it is only because you decided to give your Authority to them for a particular reason.
Again, you have the power to find that reason.
You have the power to make that reason conscious, and reconsider if you want to keep submitting yourself to that reason or not.
Again, the 5-Body shift that would occur in you while taking back your Authority - in reality, not just in your wishful thinking - would most effectively take place through an Emotional Healing Process that you arrange for yourself with one or two other Spaceholders from your Team.
No one can give you back your Authority.
On the other hand, no one can stop you from taking back your Authority.
Your uninitiated adolescent worldview assumes that it is either illegal, or impossible, to possess and stand in your own Authority beyond the control of every system? (It is not.)
Here is the relevant question: What would you do with your Authority if you had it anyway?
Actually, you don't have to worry about answering that last question... The Rule of Law of the modern capitalist patriarchal empire has no intention at all of ever arranging for you to have your own Authority. If people had their own Authority, who would be the police, then? Who would be the soldiers or the workers? God forbid that consumers would have the power to not consume...
Modern culture wants you stuck in your place at the bottom of the pyramid, where you pay to be born, pay to die, and pay to live. You are buried deep down in the 8 Prisons because modern culture has long ago banished authentic adulthood initiatory processes.
You won't find initiations except at the very outside edges of what modern culture 'authorities' tell you is all there is... "It is dangerous and scary in the outlands! Almost no one is there..." (sure... only 300 million Cultural Creatives are there...)
In short, it is the easiest thing in the world to avoid igniting your own authority. Stick with the program and you won't piss anyone off. Then you can retire and watch TV series on NetFlix in a fine old-people's home...
GO TO SCHOOL OR UNIVERSITY
You went to school?
At school you were trained that the person standing in the front of the room is the only person in the room who has authority.
You were trained that authority can only be conferred upon you by someone higher-up than you are in the hierarchical authoritarian system.
You were trained that the person at the top of the pyramid has the most authority and that everyone below them in the pyramid must submit themselves to the authority of the persons above them in the hierarchy.
You were trained that you have no authority and that it is impossible or insane to try to gain any authority. The ones who have authority deserve it by birth, fight for it tooth and nail, and protect it with their life.
At the same time you were trained that if you ever achieve 'success' you will become an authority who others look up to and try to emulate.
You were trained to believe that if you get good grades and 'do well' at school, then you gain authority in the school gameworld. You may be tempted to stay in that gameworld to get further degrees, perhaps become a teacher or professor in that gameworld. This does not mean you will ever get to 'change the system from the inside' because the school system is, if anything, designed to defend itself against change. (The school system itself refuses to learn anything.) (Perhaps you are ready to Quit School, and Heal From School?)
FEAR AND CONFUSION
'Authorities' are to be feared and obeyed. They are supposed to have power over you.
'Authorities' are the ones who 'know' and have 'the evidence' to 'prove' that 'you do not know', to classify you as being 'wrong', and then 'blame you'. (Read that as: burn you at the stake as a witch.)
'Authorities' 'represent' 'the law of the land', and have an army of weaponized police and soldiers who enforce the authorities' law, doing their overlord's bidding. (Read that as: protect corporate property and profits.)
'Authorities' themselves are, of course, 'above the law'.
No 'good' person would ever want to be 'an authority', because on the one hand, you may be attacked by other 'authorities' who 'have more authority than you', and on the other hand, having 'authority' implies 'having a big ego', and therefore being a 'bad' person.
But in secret, everyone has an ego (a Box), and every ego longs to find a way to establish itself as an authority in its own little world, even if you make yourself an authority about the fact that it is impossible for you to be an authority.
SURVIVING IN SOCIETY
The theory behind the philosophy of bowing down to the existing social, political, economic, legal, and religious 'authorities' is that, if you bow low enough, you will survive. You will be 'well adjusted', and you will 'fit in' with everyone else.
But then again, you might want to ask yourself this question: "Do I really want to get well adjusted and fit myself into a culture that is exterminating life on planet Earth at the fastest possible rate?"
(This question might be worth spending serious introspection efforts so as to discover your own personal answers. It is a very expensive question not to deliberately answer.)
If you are a bold person, and somehow spontaneously ignite your Authority to choose the Values that you value, and, if you place the Value of 'having personal Authority' at the center of your priorities, rather than, say, 'being seen and accepted as a normal member of that society', then you have good chances for unfolding and activating your remarkable potentials.
But if your higher value is to 'march lockstep' in the prevailing belief systems in your company, religion, university, government, etc., in order to be seen as a 'normal', 'acceptable', 'ordinary', or 'nice' person, then the chances of you becoming your Bright Principles and Archetypal Lineage in action are about zero.
How To Take Back Your Authority
TAKING BACK YOUR AUTHORITY IS RISKY BUSINESS
The 'how to do it' instructions for taking back your own Authority are irreducibly simple: Take back your own Authority. Without reason, without excuses, without aggression or revenge, without resentment, you take your own Authority irreversibly back into your Being.
The point here is that it is not the concept: 'I don't know how to do it' that is stopping you from taking back your own Authority.
What stops you is the fact that it is a risk to take back your Authority.
There are plenty of risks, for example, if you take back your own Authority:
These are huge risks.
But why does the riskiness stop you?
It is not the risk itself that stops you, but rather that you feel afraid to take the risk. Your fear stops you.
So? Why does fear stop you from taking back your Authority?
Because you are not initiated into experiencing, navigating, and intentionally using your Conscious Fear.
How can you change your relationship to fear?
You could begin by jumping over to the Conscious Fear website and StartOver there...
Unconscious Fears, and the stories you have attached to those fears, have stopped you from choosing many truly incredible life options.
But if you were supposed to learn about Conscious Fear - if it was an important subject - don't you think they would have taught you about it in school?
Ahhh! Now there is an interesting question! Why didn't they teach you about Conscious Fear in school?
Is it because the teachers did not know about it?
Is it because it was forbidden by the administration?
Is it because someone tampered with the curriculum?
Actually, answering the "Why...?" question is not going to help you at all to take your Authority back.
What will help you, then?
What truly helps is upgrading your thoughtware and skillsets for using your Conscious Fear as a Compass Of Invention and Wand Of Declaration.
HINT: You really want to change your relationship to fear? After Rage Club, you can participate in Fear Club. Get into Fear Club, or Expand The Box training. This is the way.
Come back here after you have earned a hell of a lot of Matrix Points doing the Conscious Fear experiments.
By then it will be time to take your Authority back, risks and all. We'll see you then.
TAKE THE RISK TO RESPONSIBLY (CONSCIOUSLY) TAKE BACK YOUR OWN AUTHORITY
The journey begins...
Where is your Authority? How can you get your Authority back? Who assigns Authority?
The one who HAS authority assigns fake authority. (The one who IS Authority knows they cannot assign Authority.)
"Well, who is that authority?" we ask, automatically and unconsciously assuming that this Authority, who ever it is, is not us. It must be someone else out there.
If anything is to change it will happen when you become Consciously Angry enough to shift out of the Ordinary world and into the Extraordinary world where you Radically Self-Authorize your own Authority. The term 'Radical' here refers to 'independent acting, self-powered agency, free from control or restraint, unpredictable, self-scripted, capable of going nonlinear', etc.
The procedure is to Self-Authorize Authority for yourself, one particularity at a time.
At some point, after you actually and in fact do take your own Authority back into your Center with regards to approximately 100 particular and specific applications, a balance tilts over to a new position such that you no longer can give your Authority away to anyone or any thing. This is a startling experience. There in not much in the modern capitalist patriarchal empire culture to suggest such a life-reorientation is personally possible.
Recovering your own Authority is an Authentic Adulthood Initiation that establishes a participatory and collaborative relationship between you and the Universe. Co-creating with life-at-large becomes inexplicably ecstatic. You personally (experientially) discover that a human being on the evolutionary Path of Adulthood is designed to be an Authority in the Universe.
This new condition will show up in your life in a number of startling but irrefutable ways. For example,
You stand in Authority that is consciously self-proclaimed and self-assigned. You take actions under your own recognizance. Your life becomes Mission Impossible: "Your mission, should you decide to accept it, is to take over all Authority for your life. As always, the Secretary will disavow any knowledge of your actions."
Meaning, there is no escape from present or future consequences.
There is tremendous joy in creatively collaborating with other Radical Authorities to serve something greater than yourself.
TAKE THE RISK TO REALIZE THAT THERE IS NOTHING ELSE BUT TO TAKE YOUR AUTHORITY BACK
It is no joke.
There are no discounts. You will have to pay full price. It is entirely up to you.
If you have lived your life using a Survival Strategy of being a Victim, having an I'm Not Okay Box, or staying in your Parent's Bubble, then you might think this is 'bad news'.
If you have lived your life as an Edgeworker, Riftwalker, Subversive... then you already know: This is the way.
There is no one else who can give you back your own Authority.
There is not one person in the world who can somehow obtain your Authority from wherever you have put it and give it back you.
On the other hand, there is no one who can stop you from taking your own Authority back.
There is nothing left but to get to it.
In which domains of your Life have you taken back your Authority lately?
Taking back your Authority might be the world's most needed (r)evolutionary action right now.
You have been bent out of shape to the point where you forget what you really want to say, what you want to write, what you want to create, what you want.
Taking back your Authority is the procedure for rediscovering what you want and choosing it.
Taking back your Authority is the procedure for negotiating extraordinary intimacy (Listen to the recording: 'Intimacy Starts With Your Authority' with Anne-Chloé Destremau on Next Culture Radio).
Taking back your Authority is the procedure for creating the world your Heart and Being know is possible.
There are so many domains in which you have given your Authority away, one tiny piece at a time. Taking back your Authority happens also in baby steps. Here are some ideas for starting now and ending never:
WHAT RADICAL AUTHORITY IS
There is such a thing as 'Radical Authority'.
You may never have heard the term 'Radical Authority' mentioned before. This does not mean that it does not exist.
Never having heard about Radical Authority does not need to block you from exploring how to use it in your daily life.
Radical Authority means to relocate your Point Of Origin into a new relationship with the Universe such that you are Radically Responsible for your collaborative Authority in Determining what is.
To 'Determine' in this case, means 'to govern, to establish, to define, to decide, to resolve, to affect, to shape...' yet none of these synonyms conveys the true power that Radical Authority offers you to 'Determine what is'. It means that in your life you 'Source what is'.
You may stumble over using the word 'Source' as a verb, meaning 'to Source'.
It can help if you picture a cool fresh-water spring, bubbling abundantly into a pond that trickles down a mountain as a stream. The spring is Sourcing fresh water for the entire local ecology, the frogs, mosquitos, mushrooms, ferns, mosses, trees, dragon flies, etc.
The spring sources what is at the pond. In Radical Authority, you Source what is in your life.
SOMETHING YOU ARE
Radical Authority is something you are, something you become... not something you take.
You can take Radical Responsibility, but you cannot take Radical Authority. For example, you cannot simply assert that you are an author. If you did, you would be lying. You become 'an author' through already having 'authored' something. The articles, newsletters, film scripts, or books which you have 'authored' confirms your 'authorship' so that 'an author' is, in fact, what you have become. Then you are being an author. You have the Radical Authority of being an author. (Some of us do not write because we have Parts that are terrified of having Radical Authority for being an author...)
Radical Authority is a an emanation from your Being.
For your Being to emanate Radical Authority, your Being needs conscious Centeredness, free-floating Attention, precise Noticing, uncluttered inner space of Nothingness, activated Will, an Inner Structure with Radical Simplicity that gives you freedom of inner movement, for example, freedom from the Conclusions of Memetic Constructs.
Probably you taught your Being to stay inside of the show you project out to the world through which others can perceive you, so that you are acceptable to the others and can survive in their company. This sort of survival tactic is an attempt at control rather than being Authority. You frantically try to grasp onto and suppress whatever might upset the status quo in which your Survival Strategy functions, because anything out of the ordinary might endanger your survival.
Being Authority is not a quality of surviving. It is a quality of Living Full Out.
Radical Authority is Extraordinary. This does not mean it must be rare or difficult. It means Radical Authority arises in Extraordinary Spaces, not an ordinary space. In Phase 2 Adulthood you learn to create, set the Context for, and resiliently Navigate Extraordinary Space.
The Extraordinary Space of Radical Authority can exist even if it seems to contradict the overwhelmingly-commonplace complexly-interactive highly-energetic Low-Drama Gremlin-feeding ordinary-Space.
The moment you, or someone else, shifts into Radical Authority, the space you do this in becomes Extraordinary, even if that means the Extraordinary Space is no larger than your Personal Bubble Of Space. Just because everyone else near you is in an Ordinary Space of being adaptive or playing small does not mean you cannot instantly shift into the Extraordinary Space of Radical Authority, even if no one else notices what you are.
Here is the question: Who creates the Extraordinary Space in which you stand in Radical Authority?
The answer, of course, is: You.
Clearly, Creating Extraordinary Space and Navigating Extraordinary Space are Possibilitator Skills that are required to obtain Radical Authority.
Being aware that you are Sourcing a thing gives you Choice over the qualities of what you Source. However, there are important limitations!
THE LAWS OF PHYSICS AND MECHANICS
"Naturally I was afraid. I was afraid because of what I didn't know, and also because of what I did. The first days of the training did nothing to reduce my fear. In the theory sessions, I learned many new ways that I could die. The instructor drew diagram after diagram of the places it was seriously unsafe to go. “Don't go behind the hill, don't go in front of the cliff, don't go too close to the cloud, don't pull the wrong cord, don't pull the right cord too hard or too soft - or you will immediately be in 'deep shit'.” I lost track of the number of crucifixes he drew on the whiteboard to represent the actions that were potentially fatal, and the number of times I heard the sentence, "If you do this, you're fucked.” When the practical training started, it finally dawned on me that I had signed up to shackle myself to a great big sail that was far stronger than me and that obeyed only the wind and pilots who know what they are doing... and I certainly did not know what I was doing."
RADICAL AUTHORITY AND WORKING WITH 'WHAT IS'
The other form of 'what is' is the 'active form of what is', the Creation form - the dynamic multidimensional interactions that include potentials both linear and Nonlinear, and possibilities both reasonable and Unreasonable. The active form of 'what is' is what makes Possibility Management possible. It means that 'what is' is indeed 'what is', but 'what is' does not have to stay that way, even for one more second, because through taking Radical Responsibility for your Radical Authority, and through applying the tools, techniques, thoughtmaps, distinctions, and processes of Possibility Management, you can learn to manage what is possible. You can Cause Transformation in 'what is'.
Managing Possibility will not be possible for you if you continue looking outside of yourself for permission to have the Authority to change 'what is'. That is where the 'Conscious Pirate' culture in Possibility Management comes from: granting your own Authority.
"Roads? Where we are going, we don't need roads."
"Badges? Badges! We don't need no stinkin' badges!"
I Am That From Whom No One Can Take Authority Away
I am a Mage Pirate
You cannot take my Authority away from me
I am a Mage Pirate
I graduated from two of the best law schools in the world
You cannot take my Authority away from me
I am a Mage Pirate
I reach the summit of powers in modern culture by age 23
And exceeded the game in less than 3 days.
I am a Mage Pirate
I am Here
I create Now
In the service of E.C.C.O and my Archetypal Lineage
You cannot my Authority away
You have feedback for me?
I put it in my Feedback Inbox
I am a Mage Pirate
I am that from whom no one can take Authority away.
You are already ready to take Authority for more than you think.
Some experiments are a month-long, and with good reason.
Taking back your authority does not happen in your head.
Taking back your Authority is a 5-body radical transformation. The evidence shows up in the results that you can create in your Life.
MAKE A CLEAR PLAN FOR WHAT YOU WOULD DO WITH YOUR AUTHORITY IF YOU HAD IT
What would you do with your Authority if you had it anyway?
Only you can rightfully answer this question.
We think it is a useful question for you to answer.
It is similar to already having a plan for what you would do if the Universe gave you one-hundred million Euros.
If you do not have a clear plan for what you would do with €100 million, then why should the Universe give it to you? It would probably be a total waste.
We repeat. What would you do with your Authority if you had it? It is time to make your plan.
After implementing your three plans, please enter Matrix Code AUTHORIT.01 in your free account at StartOver.xyz. This Experiment (all the parts) is worth 3 Matrix Points.
TAKE BACK YOUR AUTHORITY FOR BEING AN EXPERIMENTER
When you were a baby, everything you did was Experimenting. You did not know what would happen if you tried to stand. You did not know how dirt tasted. It was all a risk.
The secret to discover here is that, it is STILL ALL A RISK. Becoming the kind of Experimenter who takes back your own Authority depends on you learning to guess, learning to estimate consequences, learning to figure out a strategy to try and then trying it, staying aware enough to Notice what the results are, what worked and what did not work about your Experiment so that you can use these insights and clarifications to make your next Experiments go even better.
Go! Beep! Shift! Go! This is the life of an Experimenter.
Without developing your Experimenter skills you will not get far in the StartOver.xyz game, which is the game of opening up and inhabiting a new future for yourself.
'Experimenter' is an identity. Taking back your Authority for being an Experimenter begins by taking back your Authority to take intelligently calculated risks... just like you were doing as a baby and a child.
You are already to some degree good at taking intelligent calculated risks, or you would not be alive enough to be exploring StartOver.xyz.
This Experiment is to go to your Possibility Team (and when we say 'Possibility Team' we actually mean any Team that you are in...) and ask them to give you three risks that would be valuable, in their opinion, for you to take now.
Under the heading THREE RISKY EXPERIMENTS in your Beep! Book, write down exactly the words they use to describe the risky Experiments. Ask clarifying questions if you need to.
After you have done all 3 Risky Experiments and reported back to your Possibility Team how they went and what you Noticed, please record Matrix Code AUTHORIT.02 in your free account at StartOver.xyz. This Experiments is worth 3 Matrix Points!
TAKE BACK YOUR AUTHORITY TO BUILD MORE MATRIX TO HOLD MORE CONSCIOUSNESS
The quality and degree of authority you can take is determined by the quality and degree of specific distinctions you have integrated into your Being as Matrix.
Matrix is built with distinctions that land in your Being.
By integrating new distinctions into your Being, you make it possible to take new Authority. This evolutionary work is the most entertaining experience in the Universe.
This is a valuable HINT: If you are unable to take back any particular aspect of your Authority, look into the related matrix and see to what degree you have not built it.
This Experiment is to face the breakdowns and un-successes of your current life and ask yourself the question: "What Distinctions could I explore in practical new behaviors to build my Matrix out in ways that would make a difference in my life?"
Such a question is not usually one that you can answer for yourself because our awareness is guarded against new realizations by our Gremlin-guarded Box that is dedicated to keeping things the same so we can continue to survive.
This could be a time to go to your friendly neighborhood Possibility Coach and arrange for a session about this question. Regardless of whether they do an Emotional Healing Process with you, or Memetic Engineering with you, or something entirely different, you now have a strategy for building new Matrix. Ask for specific actions to take, Experiments to try.
After you do these actions, please record Matrix Code AUTHORIT.03 in your free account at StartOver.xyz. This Experiments is worth 2 Matrix Points!
TAKE BACK YOUR AUTHORITY FOR YOUR ENERGETIC CENTER
Without taking your 5 Energetic Centers into your ongoing conscious possession, you will not be able to take back your Authority for anything. You cannot be in Authority whenever you are not Centered.
You will need a partner to do this Experiment. Bring your Beep! Book and pen.
After writing down the future Experiments, please record Matrix Code AUTHORIT.04 in your free account at StartOver.xyz. This Experiments is worth 2 Matrix Points!
TAKE BACK YOUR PHYSICAL BODY AUTHORITY FOR YOUR ALIVENESS
Life is change. Anything alive is ongoingly changing.
Any original action is a creation that makes change, because it is new. This means that any original action is life happening.
Any action that tries to duplicate what you just did, or to copy what you did before now, stops change, and therefore stops your aliveness.
Doing the same thing destroys the possibility of doing something different in that moment. Repeated behaviors keep you in a circular pattern where you do the same thing over and over, or a rut where you cannot perceive or go anywhere different.
Repeated patterns may seem safe, but it is the illusionary safety that comes from blocking aliveness. The aliveness is still in you, but it is suppressed. You repress your own aliveness with your physical movements.
You have the power to do something different in each next moment.
This Experiment is to start a heading PATTERN RECOGNITION in your Beep! Book and write out personal answers to these questions (This is not school! There are no 'right' answers!):
Give your PATTERN RECOGNITION WorkTalk online or in-person for 2 hours. Have participants pay at least €15 for joining. During your WorkTalk, read out your self-revealing notes that you wrote while you did this Experiment.
Then ask people to get in groups of 3 and help each other write out answers to the same questions, giving them 15 minutes for each person. You may need to offer extra notebooks and pens for anyone who did not bring theirs.
Remember, the purpose of this Experiment and of this Workshop is NOT TO TRY TO CHANGE ANYTHING. The purpose is to Notice with all 5 Bodies what has been happening, what the people have been creating, and why. The increased awareness will create its own pathway for people to take back their Authority for aliveness they are ready for. You too.
After delivering your WorkTalk, please record Matrix Code AUTHORIT.05 in your free Account at StartOver.xyz. This Experiments is worth 4 Matrix Points!
TAKE BACK YOUR AUTHORITY FOR YOUR INTELLECTUAL BODY
What your Intellectual Body uses to think with is your Thoughtware.
You adopted your current Thoughtware primarily from your parents or caretakers when you were very young, as a way to survive in their company.
How do we know? Because you could have been born in any country, any culture, any time in the last 300,000 years, and you would have adopted the Thoughtware of your birth culture. You could have been an open-pit gold-mining slave in Congo, a castle-inhabiting Princess in Scotland, a goat herder in Afghanistan, a tech company employee in China, a fisherman on the coast of Argentina, a Tapa Cloth weaver in Tonga, on and on. The adaptability of the human being is nearly inconceivable.
And yet, here you are... you... using the Thoughtware that was used by your parents, which they received from their parents, even right now to understand these words.
It is important to realize (as shocking as it may be...) that NO ONE has EVER taken Authority for the Thoughtware you are using. Not you. Not your parents. Not the 'authorities'.
The Thoughtware you are using has simply been passed down from generation to generation, powered by the false Assumption that your Thoughtware is the only possible Thoughtware that anyone could use.
Not only that, if your Thoughtware is thought about at all, then your Thoughtware is considered by its users to be the BEST Thoughtware that human beings have ever invented.
Just think about this...
If every human being is using unexamined Thoughtware that they absentmindedly assume is the BEST thoughtware that human beings have ever invented, and yet, the people do not get along, meaning they are using incompatible Thoughtware versions... then there are different possible Thoughtware variations to be used!
This means you could examine the Thoughtware you are using, compare each bit of it to other available bits of Thoughtware, and consciously choose which Thoughtware YOU actually WANT to use to create the world your heart knows is possible!
Ahah! This is an astonishing possibility that you can now make use of, because exactly that is this Experiment!
IMPORTANT NOTE: Your Team does not have to agree to use a common set of Thoughtware. This Experiment is simply to inspect your Thoughtware as a Team Project together, to make your inspections shared through discussion and public through your website. Choosing to use agreed-upon Thoughtware would be a choice made by people who are co-creating a gameworld in which the shared Thoughtware is documented in their Codex and Rules Of Engagement of their Gameworld.
After creating your Team's online Distinctionary, please share the link with us at General Memetics (annechloe dot destremau at gmail dot com), and ask each person to record Matrix Code AUTHORIT.06 in their free account at StartOver.xyz. This Experiment is worth 5 Matrix Points per person!
TAKE BACK YOUR AUTHORITY FOR YOUR NOTICING
Taking back your Authority for what you Notice and what you do not Notice starts with Noticing what restricts or directs the focus of your Attention.
Factors that manage your Attention can be diverse.
After a week, record Matrix Code AUTHORIT.07 in your free account at StartOver.xyz. This Experiment is worth 3 Matrix Points.
TAKE BACK YOUR AUTHORITY TO EXPERIENCE YOUR OWN PRESENCE
Take the risk to defend your Presence.
Get Present. Defend it for an hour.
Defend it for two hours.
Defend it for four hours.
After each of these three time spans that you defend your Presence, for at least 20 minutes, write about it in your Beep! Book.
After your third entry, record Matrix Code AUTHORIT.08 in your free account at StartOver.xyz. This Experiment is worth 2 Matrix Points.
TAKE BACK YOUR AUTHORITY FOR YOUR CONSCIOUS ATTENTION
Your energy is swiftly devoured by countless distractions. Without paying attention to your attention, your precious energy is easily sucked away. Like a sieve with a thousand holes you can be drained in a matter of seconds. No wonder we can be so tired halfway through the day. Without realizing how, we frivolously spend our daily energy allotment. Then we have little patience for Edgeworker Experiments.
For three days, for three different hours each day, put some of your Attention on taking back your authority for your Attention.
After each hour, make notes about this in your Beep! Book, under the heading: Authority for My Conscious Attention.
When you have made 9 entries, (3hours x 3 days), record Matrix Code AUTHORIT.09 in your free account at StartOver.xyz. This Experiments is worth 2 Matrix Points!
TAKE BACK YOUR AUTHORITY TO FACE INTO THE STATE OF YOUR OWN AUTHORITY
There was a moment in your life, or perhaps several moments, that you decided to give up your own Authority about what your feelings said, about what you wanted and about what you wanted to take a stand for.
The decision to forsake your Authority in order to blend into what your environment presented as the only correct or existing option, is drilled into the tissues of your physical body like hooks in flesh. The substance that is keeping that decision there, maintaining it alive and active, is an Emotion - a stuck Feeling.
That Emotion is therefore also the gateway into finding the Point of Origin of this old decision.
After completing this experiment, record Matrix Code AUTHORIT.08 in your free account at StartOver.xyz. In the Proof section, please include the words you wrote in point 9 of this Experiment. This Experiment is worth 2 Matrix Points.
TAKE BACK YOUR AUTHORITY FOR NAVIGATING YOUR FEELINGS AND EMOTIONS
One of the most fundamental distinctions that is offered by Possibility Management and that does not seem to be offered anywhere else is the distinction between a Feeling and an Emotion. The distinction is: Feelings are for handling things. Emotions are for healing things.
A Feeling is a source of energy and information provided to you naturally by your body. It comes up in the small here and a small now, in your Adult Ego State, providing you with the clarity and fuel needed to create intimacy, realize your purpose, be of service, set boundaries, make outrageous invitations and transformational proposals and anything else that you might want to handle in your life as an Adult.
Emotions do not emerge from the present situation and therefore have nothing to do with what is happening in reality. Emotions are when the information and energy of your Feelings got stuck in your body in a recent or distant past, because you suppressed the Feelings then they happened.
Since current Thoughtware considers Feelings are bad, you suppress most of your Feelings, often starting with this already at a very young age.
The result of this is that most of the time, when you find yourself feeling angry, sad, afraid, glad, depressed, ashamed or isolated in the present, you think the state you are in is a consequence of your present circumstances when actually what you are experiencing is a reaction from your past.
Although both Feelings and Emotions at first feel the same and fall into one of the four categories of anger, sadness, joy or fear, it is very easy to experientially distinguish Emotions from Feelings. Here is how: Feelings are triggered, they arise, the energy and information get used, and then, within a minute or so, they are completely gone from your body. Emotions on the other hand, are triggered, they arise, and then no matter how you seem to express them, they persist in your experience.
Did you ever feel scared and then an hour later you were still scared? That is emotional fear. Did you ever feel angry and then a day later you were still angry? That is emotional anger. Did you ever feel sad and then a week later you were still sad? That is emotional sadness. If you feel a feeling and five minutes later you are still feeling that feeling, it is not a feeling at all. It is an Emotion.
Knowing the difference between a Feeling and an Emotion is huge. It enables you to create a gap between you and the state you find yourself in. It allows you to not blame another person or an aspect of your circumstances for what you are feeling. Instead, it enables you to ask for an Emotional Healing Process to restore and integrate the stuck Feeling as a resource in your body, and retrieve from it the information it held. The healing occurs through recognizing and understanding the emotion from the Adult perspective. The redeeming value of emotional pain is when the pain becomes conscious.
The result of Healing through navigating your Emotions is that you can experience the present more neutrally and you gain an expanded number of possibilities for interacting with your world, instead of being stuck in the linearity of your reactivity.
This Experiment is to take back your authority for navigating your Feelings and Emotions. For this:

TAKE BACK YOUR AUTHORITY FOR STELLATING YOUR FEELINGS ARCHETYPES
In 2010 Possibility Managers discovered it is possible to Stellate your Feelings Archetypes.
The term 'Stellating' means 'to change a planet into a star'.
The difference between a planet and a star is that a planet absorbs more energy than it gives off, whereas a star radiates more energy than it absorbs.
Stellating is feeling your Conscious Feelings at a 100% intensity. In so doing awakening the Archetypal forces built into your body that have been waiting to be turned on and accompany you in your life as an adult ever since you were 15-18 years old.
Taking back your authority for Stellating your Feelings Archetypes means taking back your authority for being an empowered Adult. The cost of humans not knowing about the possibility of creating this access to your inner resources is huge. The benefit of remaining a disempowered human being is also huge - for the parts in you that are committed to survival.
This experiment is about taking back your authority for Stellating your Feelings Archetypes.
For this, first:
TAKE BACK YOUR AUTHORITY FOR YOUR POWER TO DECLARE
Declaring what is so, is one of your 3 Powers. It is a straightforward soft-skill technology, even though it can sometimes look like Magic.
You never learned about this in school. You might be convinced that you do not have the power to Declare what is so. This means choosing to be a victim of 'how things are'.
Unconsciously, you declare 'what is so' to yourself and to others all day and all night. Consequently you pay the price of making unconscious, mechanical, reactive declarations your whole life.
Making your Declaring Conscious changes how the world works for you. Making your Declaring Conscious means you get to Consciously serve Bright Principles with your Declarations.
If you do not make the choice to be a conscious servant of responsible Bright Principles, then you automatically make the choice to be an unconscious slave of irresponsible Shadow Principles.
No one can change your unconscious declaring into Conscious Declaring for you. No one can stop you from doing Conscious Declaring.
This Experiment is to take back your authority for your power to Declare.
NOTE: Declaring is not about creating Fantasy Worlds. Creating a Fantasy World is creating an illusion that:
A Fantasy World can only exist in the context of irresponsibility because it is about diverting your Attention from where you are now.
Declaring means claiming, owning and Consciously inhabiting your responsibility and therewith your creation power in the Now.

TAKE BACK YOUR AUTHORITY FOR YOUR POWER TO CHOOSE
You might experience the act of Choosing as a dangerous, thorny thing. You have the story that it is scary to be responsible for the outcomes of your Choosing.
There are many strategies to not face into the Fear that is generated by the act of Choosing.
One strategy is to pretend there is no other Choice than what you are Choosing, so as to pretend there is no choice to make. Another strategy is to choose what others choose, in an attempt to not get singled out and questioned about what you chose.
Rather than focussing solely on what you choose, you could shift and use part of your Attention to see what you are choosing with.
Which forces are you allowing to influence your choosing?
Which Parts of you are choosing for you?
Which amount of freedom are you allowing yourself to Self-Observe and Notice which forces you are allowing to influence your Choosing?
For example, in choosing the way you are earning your income right now, which default decision forces have been at play? Did you choose the job that was available to you where you live? Did you choose a job that matches what you studied, because that is what you studied? Did you choose a job you hate but generates money? Did you choose a job that makes you look good to your environment? Did you choose a job in which you are most fully at service for your Archetypal Lineage?
Without making ongoing efforts to become more awake and aware, your daily Choices remain mostly unconscious... that is, they serve Unconscious Purposes.
In other words: your choices serve habitual Gremlin / Box / Survival Purposes.
Instead of pretending you have no other options or letting your Choosing be influenced by forces unknown to you, you can take back your Authority for increasing your capacity for conscious Choosing.

TAKE BACK YOUR AUTHORITY FOR SOMETHING NEW EACH DAY
How do you know if the thing you take back Authority for is actually new?
After doing this Experiment of taking back your Authority for something new each day - for 30 days in a row! - please enter Matrix Code AUTHORIT.44 in your free account at StartOver.xyz. This means 30 days in a row! NOT ONE DAY SKIPPED FOR THE WHOLE 30 DAYS. If you succeed for the whole 30 days, this Experiment is worth 30 Matrix Points! In the Proof section, please write down the 30 new things you did.
"Congratulations. You have discovered the Path."
TAKE BACK YOUR AUTHORITY FOR YOUR 'DO IT POWER'
You can take Radical Responsibility for the consequences and Radical Responsibility for what is, but who has the permission to Choose?
Who has the qualifications to Declare?
Who has the gumption to Ask?
Who has the right to make new nonlinear unreasonable transformational Proposals?
This is Do It Power.
It is yours for the taking. You may have to break the rules, trespass on the taboos, be unreasonable. But if you do not Do It, who will? Most impulses that you have to Do It are a Job On Your Bench given to you by E.C.C.O., your Bright Principles, or your Archetypal Lineage. And you are going to refuse to do it? Why? Because you have Reasons? It is time to get Unreasonable.
This Experiment is one time each day, for the next 3 weeks, unleash your Do It Power without thinking about it, without reasoning it out of existence, without letting Fear or anything stop you from Doing It.

USE 'CONSCIOUS FEELINGS' ELEMENTS IN YOUR EVERYDAY AUTHORITY PRACTICES
Obtain a copy of Clinton Callahan's revised and expanded edition of Conscious Feelings, (available Fall 2022). Go to the Conscious Feelings Index and look up the term: 'authority' in the Index. Notice how many entries there are in this book about Authority. Each entry describes a different kind of Doorway for you to enter in your daily Life Of Practice with expanding and strengthening your conscious Authority.
Flip to each of the Conscious Feelings pages indicated in the Index regarding 'authority' and make a list in your Beep! Book with the name or action of each new kind of Authority. This will create a list of at least 52 new kinds of Authority!
Use each item in your list, one day at a time, as the precise kind of Authority that you activate 10 times that day to practice it. Notice how your Authority deepens in quality and expands in dimensions through this Experiment.
After completing this Experiment, please register Matrix Code AUTHORIT.46 in your free account at StartOver.xyz. In the Proof section, please write an example of what you Noticed about changes in your Authority through doing this Experiment. This Experiment is worth 3 Matrix Points.
NOTE: This website is a Bubble in the Bubble Map of the free-to-play, massively-multiplayer, online-and-offline, thoughtware-upgrade, matrix-building, personal-transformation, adventure-game called StartOver.xyz. It is a doorway to experiments that upgrade your thoughtware so you can relocate your point of origin and create more possibility. Your knowledge is what you think about. Your thoughtware is what you use to think with. When you change your thoughtware, you go through a liquid state as your mind reorganizes itself. Liquid states can bring up transformational feelings and emotions. By upgrading your thoughtware you build matrix to hold more consciousness and leave behind a low drama life of reactivity. No one can upgrade your thoughtware for you. More interestingly, no one can stop you from upgrading your thoughtware. Our theory is that when we collectively build 1,000,000 new Matrix Points we will change the morphogenetic field of the human race for the better. Please choose responsibly to read this website. Reading this whole website is worth 1 Matrix Point. Doing any of the experiments earns you additional Matrix Points.
