This is Authority 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.
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 authenticadulthoodinitiatoryprocesses.
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...
GOING TO SCHOOL
You went to school?
Then 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 to discover your own personal answers to. This 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:
You might change.
Your friends might not like you anymore.
There won't be any excuses to justify your failures.
There won't be anyone else to blame for the faulty circumstances in your life.
There won't be anything to hide behind, no horrible stories about your childhood, no institution that did not provide you with what you needed.
The exciting but fake Low Drama world will be completely over for you, invalidated forever.
Other people might think you are out of line, arrogant, or deluded.
They might report you to the 'real authorities'...
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.
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,
Each time you are in a Space, regardless of who the specified Spaceholder is of that Space, you are also Holding The Space and helping to Navigate the Space. It is also your Space. To not Hold Space will take effort. Even if you suppress your Spaceholding it will remain your Space.
When being invited to participate in an Ordinary Space (adolescent, uninitiated, Gremlin, Low Drama, Victimy, serving Shadow Principles, etc.) it will not feed your Being to join. No amount of insult, threat, coercion, manipulation, name calling, etc. can possibly force you to give your Authority over to change your mind and participate in that Space. It would be beneath your Dignity.
It becomes straightforward and somehow normal for you to have an opinion, worldview, strategy, choices, or perspective that is different, distasteful, contradictory, or unimaginable to those around you, even to your family or friends. This does not upset you or make you afraid. You can explain your perspective or approach with simple clarity if anyone asks, in ways that do not involve defending yourself or attacking others. (For an example of this behavior, watch the Mandalorian Series.)
Your uniqueness does not separate you from others. Their uniqueness does not separate them from you. You find yourself connecting joyously and enthusiastically with others who seem to be remarkably different from you. Your Box may freak out about this, but you don't, even if a part of you thinks that you should.
Each time a choice is to be made, personal, Team, or organizational, even if the choice is a group decision, you make the Choice yours. If you will not abide by the choice of others, you say so, and it is not a problem for you to have a different choice.
It becomes impossible for you to be a victim of the circumstances, because you Authorize the circumstances and you retain the Authority to renegotiate them to be different any time you want to.
When an action needs to be taken, you are not looking around for who is going to take the action, or for who will give the authority to take the action, or for who will assign the authority to someone else to have the authority for the action to be taken. You take the action in full Authority. There is a way that you trust that if it was not your action to take, you would not have become aware of taking it. Yes, there are many times when it is more excellent to not take action, for example, as a way of respecting other people's Authority, or to consciously Flow Power to someone else, or as part of Replacing Yourself in a Team. Consciously not taking action is also an Action. It is the Action of not taking an action.
When something needs to be said you do not wait around for someone else to set the timing, direction, volume, tone, intentions etc. of saying the thing. Instead you act under your own Authority to say what needs to be said.
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.
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:
Take back your Authority for not needing approval.
Take back your Authority to not rescue others, and to not give credence to other people's story about it.

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. What you have 'authored' confirms your 'authorship' so that 'an author' is in fact what you have become. Then you are being an author.
Radical Authority is a an emanation from your Being.
Probably you taught your Being to stay inside of the show you project out to the world for others to perceive you, so that you are acceptable to them 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.
The Extraordinary Space of Radical Authority can exist even if it seems that you must drown in a 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 is 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?
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
Sourcing Extraordinary Spaces of Radical Authority in NO WAY implies that you have the power to change the laws of physics and the laws of mechanics. There are real and specific limitations to Radical Authority. If you cannot discern and pay attention to those requirements, then you may be Sourcing a Fantasy World which could even be dangerous, and even lethal to you or others. What do we mean?
Here is an excerpt from an article by Possibilitator Michael Cann about learning to fly a paraglider:
"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."
I know a person who slid a burning candle behind the flipped-up lid of my laptop computer. In a few minutes the lid of my laptop melted into a sliding blob of plastic. This same person reached over another burning candle wearing a cotton pullover and was about to burst into flames even though they could not feel the heat accumulating under their arm. This can only happen to someone who is not aware of the laws of thermodynamics, that the single flame of a common kitchen candle can do permanent damage.
Certain chemical or gas mixtures can explode or dissolve holes in other materials. Metals can rust and break. Electricity can create sparks, fire, and explosions. Lightening can obliterate hundred-year-old oak trees. Avalanches can crush and suffocate people. Tornadoes can throw cars into houses. Momentum can deliver incredibly powerful forces if deceleration is exponential such as in a car crash or global warming tipping points. Ropes break under a specific tension depending on the materials they are woven out of. Time goes by. The laws of physics and mechanics prevail even when you stand in Radical Authority.
It is the gravestone-causing distinctions we are speaking about here. What will kill you. What will fall apart underneath you. What will electrocute you, or blow you up. Towns adopt official building codes to which construction projects must conform so as to assure that they can resist both the static and dynamic forces of that occur in the real world. Part of Radical Authority is determining to your own proven satisfaction that you are taking the laws of physics and the strength of materials properly into account. And if you do not...
Yes, it is true... certain authentic initiatory processes such as fire walking, or glass walking... or glass jumping (see video below), seem to bend or break these laws of physics and mechanics in a specific way for a certain period of time in an intentionally held Space.
For stories about such experiences, read the book Miracle of Love: stories of Neem Karoli Baba collected by Ram Dass. The onslaught of disconnected mind-boggling bewilderments circling the life of one man are so heartfelt and honestly told, and yet so defy the laws of nature, that nature itself becomes suspect.
But this does NOT mean to take microdoses of LSD or Ecstasy until you believe you can fly and then step off the top of a tall building. If you can indeed levitate, then you don't need the building. Just lift off from the ground and hover there, or walk over the water. That would be impressive enough.
Radical Authority is about consciously and creatively choosing what you make of things, the possibilities you produce that serve others and groups in need.
In the same way that when you need a job done, you use your own Radical Authority to scan the Team to detect who can do the job best, and then negotiate with them to do it.
Although many creations are straightforward from the extraordinary Space of Radical Authority, they may sometimes seem miraculous to others. Get used to this. Then arrange to train others to become what they truly are capable of Being.
Werner Erhard would say, "It is all meaningless. And it is even meaningless that it is meaningless."
In Possibility Management, the word 'this' in the assertion: "Something completely different from this is possible right now," means 'just this': the what is of what is.
For Causing Transformation, it is important to ongoingly Notice an important and rather unknown distinction: There are two forms of 'what is'.
One form of 'what is' is the 'passive form of what is', the Present form, the Radically Reduced static form - shaved of all interpretations, meanings, implications, assumptions, stories, expectations, judgements, and conclusions. It is the 'what isness of the what is', the just so-ness. No more. No less. The way to have power in this kind of 'what is' is to verify that it is, indeed, an accurate assessment of current reality, and then to Stand on it for making your Experimental risks. As Arnaud Desjardins would say, the practice is to, "Accept what is, as it is, here and now in the moment."
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!"
These days there are 3 rules in Possibility Management:
Don't hurt yourself.
Don't hurt anybody else.
Don't get arrested.
But, what if you make a mistake? What if you 'throw away the badges', take back your Authority, and something goes wrong?
What if you do get hurt somehow? What if someone blames you for hurting them? What if you do get arrested?
What if someone sees your example and decides to copy you, but they are psychopathic and without conscience to guide their choices, and they hurt themselves or someone else?
What if people see you taking the risks of acting according to your own Authority, or even being Radical Authority in action, and instead of cheering you on they attack you for being arrogant, or foolish, or an egotistical asshole, and banish you from their company?
What if you use your new-found Authority to create a 'superiority complex' so as to protect yourself from exactly those kinds of attacks?
These are all valid possibilities to consider, of course.
But are they terminators? Are these enough to stop you from taking back your own Authority?
Certainly there are things not to be naive about, such as deciding how confrontive you should be with whom and when using your Radical Authority, or with how much Radical Honesty you should reveal the ecstatic joys you experience while exploring your Radical Authority Purposes, or deciding in front of whom you make your Radical Authority visible. These are real precautionary considerations.
At the same time, it is possible to 'what if' yourself to death.
If you let your mind create images that trigger enough fear, you will re-cause the rigor mortis you had before we started this whole conversation. Your fears of 'what might happen' could possibly induce you to give your Authority away again, like Don Quixote when he ceased his Quest and stopped Living Full Out.
There is nothing you can to to avoid the fact that, whatever you do or to not do, wherever you go from this moment on for the rest of your life, the risks are all yours. Something will occur.
And, you are the one who decides what you do and don't do, consciously or not. Your are the determining factor.
At this time, we propose that you determine to Experiment.
I Am That Which No One Can Take Authority Away From
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

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
Matrix Code AUTHORIT.01
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.
This Experiment starts by gettingout your Beep! Book. It should not be far. If you are a Possibilitator your Beep! Book is almost never farther away than one arm's reach... as would be your Possibility Stone...
Take a deep breath. Close your eyes. Sink down into your core.
Start letting your vision come to life.
You have a vision.
It is deep within you. Over and over again, ask yourself this question: "If I had Authority, I would..."
Then write out whatever answers come, big or small, wild or mundane, understandable or beyond your imagination. Write the answers in exquisite detail of how your vision comes alive.
Write for 20-30 minutes without stopping.
Do this three different times, preferably on 3 different days.
What might come out are: things to change, boundaries to make, assignments to give, things to create, questions to ask, projects to complete, tasks to delegate, invitations to make to others, things to destroy, or end, or finish, new kinds of decisions to make, more Experiments to try, and so on, and on, and on...
Give each plan a number.
By the end of your three sessions, aim to have at least thirty plans for what to do with your Authority if you only had it.
Now this Experiment gets interesting: Choose three of your plans. Take back that specific Authority and implement your plans fully.
After implementing your three plans, please enter Matrix Code AUTHORIT.01 in your free account at StartOver.xyz. This Experiment (with all 3 parts) is worth 3 Matrix Points.
Take Back Your Authority For Being An Experimenter
Matrix Code AUTHORIT.02
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.
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 doneall 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 Matrix To Hold More Consciousness
Matrix Code AUTHORIT.03
The quality and degree of authority you can take is determined by the quality and degree of specific distinctions you have integrated into you 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.
Before starting, spend half-an-hour reviewing together the definitions and distinctions of the what your 5 Energetic Centers are at the Become Centered website. Be sure you can Experientially distinguish one Center from each of your 5 Bodies: Physical, Intellectual, Emotional, Energetic, and Archetypal.
Take a two hour-long walk together in any combination of: the shopping zone, the business district, the beach full of sun-bathers, the ghetto, the forest, or at an amusement park.
As you begin your walk, exchange Beep! Books so that each of you has the other's Beep! Book to write in.
While you are walking, take turns back and forth for approximately 10 minutes each, one being the Walker, the other being the Observer.
The Walker: walk as usual. Do not be rigid, tight, or controlled. Be natural.
The Observer: put almost ALL of your attention on the Walker, and Notice from your 5 Bodies each and every incident the Walker gives away one of their 5 Centers (which is the same thing as giving away their Authority for that Center). Use your Center Scanner to detect exactly what the Walker gives one of their Centers to.
Write down which of their Centers they give away? (It could be more than one at a time.)
Write down what they do when they are Adaptive. What changes? What stops? What starts?
Then each 10 or 15 minutes, change roles.
At the end of the two hours walking, sit down together at a Café and review all the notes. Look for patterns of triggers. Is it words? Is it stories? Is it emotional fears? Is it assumptions or expectations? It is male or female? Is it moving or still? Is it child, or animal, or advertisement, or fears?
Develop one or two further Experiments or Processes that each of you can do to take your next step being more Centered. Write them down clearly in your Beep! Book.

Take Back Your Physical Body Authority For Your Aliveness
Matrix Code AUTHORIT.05
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!):
What are your patterns? What to you repeat as a physical gesture, movement manifestation, speech pattern, food eating pattern, avoidance pattern, buying pattern, problem solving pattern, etc.
What are you angry, sad, glad, and scared about when you are implementing a pattern?
What are you doing with your aliveness power in that moment? Where do you put your aliveness then? Exactly how do you put it there?
If you were giving a Workshop called PATTERN RECOGNITION and the skills needed for duplicating patterns, what are the considerations you would want people to understand and practice to be better Pattern Followers? Please be clear and neurotically detailed in your descriptions and instructions.
Why are you suppressing your aliveness? What is your benefit?
What is the result of suppressing your aliveness by duplicating physical movements, actions, problem solutions, speech patterns, proposal patterns, and habits? Again, please write these out in embarrassingly self-revealingly painful detail.
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.

Take Back Your Authority For Your Intellectual Body
Matrix Code AUTHORIT.06
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!
Start a Thoughtware Research Team - or dedicate five meetings of whatever weekly Team you are in now - to document your Thoughtware.
Start simple, but be very clear. Make a list of each individual's Thoughtware.
Compare each person's bit of Thoughtware with every other person's bit of Thoughtware about each thing that you discover you have Thoughtware about.
Remember, you are not trying to decide which Thoughtware is more correct or best. Your are simply documenting possible options for Thoughtware that you (or every other person in the world!) can then later choose from.
Make a website that is a Distinctionary - a dictionary of descriptions of the distinctions out of which each bit of each member of your Team's Thoughtware is constructed.
(AFTER CREATING YOUR DISTINCTIONARY ONLINE... you can take a look at creating your Distinctionary onlineThere is a sample Distinctionary online you can check - the Distinctionary of Possibility Management Thoughtware Distinctions
The way you take Authority for your Thoughtware is to consciously choose the various bits of Thoughtware you would personally prefer to use. You assemble for yourself a custom set of non-contradictory non-belief-centered Thoughtware codes, and then use it, and refuse to use old thoughtware simply because it is familiar or customary.
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.
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.
This Experiment is to Notice what you are Noticing with.
Notice why you have chosen (consciously or not) to sculpture your Noticing in this way. What do you get from this? What do you hide yourself from by Noticing this way?
Start a list in your Beep! Book titled MY NOTICING and during the next week, write down many times during the day what affects your Attention. For example, explore and write down these areas:
Your intentional Purposes for your Noticing.
Your absent minded Purposes for your Noticing.
Your Gremlin Purposes for various kinds of Noticing.
Your fantasy worlds.

Take Back Your Authority For Your Conscious Attention
Matrix Code AUTHORIT.09
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!
