O, and i do not charge anything for this information (and my help if requested) as i believe it is something that has been hidden in an attempt to make humanity small....and that just pisses me off.
from Frank Herbert's Children of Dune
"To learn patience in the Bene
Gesserit Way, you must begin by recognizing the essential, raw instability of
our universe. We call nature -- meaning this totality in all of its
manifestations -- the Ultimate Non-Absolute. To free your vision and permit you
to recognize this conditional nature's changing ways, you will hold your two
hands at arm's length in front of you. Stare at your extended hands, first the
palms and then the backs. Examine the fingers, front and back. Do it."
Farad'n complied, but he felt foolish. These were his own hands. He knew
"Imagine your hands aging," Jessica said. "They must grow very old in your
eyes. Very, very old. Notice how dry the skin . . ."
"My hands don't change," he said. He already could feel the muscles of his
upper arms trembling.
"Continue to stare at your hands. Make them old, as old as you can imagine.
It may take time. But when you see them age, reverse the process. Make your
hands young again -- as young as you can make them. Strive to take them from
infancy to great age at will, back and forth, back and forth."
"They don't change!" he protested. His shoulders ached.
"If you demand it of your senses, your hands will change," she said.
"Concentrate upon visualizing the flow of time which you desire: infancy to age,
age to infancy. It may take you hours, days, months. But it can be achieved.
Reversing that change-flow will teach you to see every system as something
spinning in relative stability . . . only relative."
"I thought I was learning patience." She heard anger in his voice, an edge
"And relative stability," she said. "This is the perspective which you
create with your own belief, and beliefs can be manipulated by imagination.
You've learned only a limited way of looking at the universe. Now you must make
the universe your own creation. This will permit you to harness any relative
stability to your own uses, to whatever uses you are capable of imagining."
