Precept Two:  “A man (or woman) goes to knowledge as they go to war: wide awake, with fear, with respect, and with absolute assurance. Going to knowledge or going to war in any other manner is a mistake, and whoever makes it might never live to regret it.”
(Carlos Castaneda, The Teachings of Don Juan: A Yaqui Way of Knowledge)

Precept Three: It’s not possible to analyze your way into a moment of transformation.

Unlike ‘change’ which is an intended shift within an existing framework, transformation is a thorough or dramatic shift in form or appearance — a metamorphosis, and always a quantum sea change in context, surprising, intuitive, energetic, and in the presence of what attracts. None of this is generated from linear thinking.  You don’t control what happens. The universe decides.

Precept Four:  Business, social, legal, and personal conflicts clear up naturally when people’s minds shift from a linear to a quantum logic.

In Peter Sellers’ last film before he died, Being There, the great actor and comic ended with, “Life is a State of Mind.”

“Linear logic is a process of thought following known cycles or a step-by-step progression where a response to a step must be elicited before another step is taken. Quantum logic is characterized by expansion in multiple directions, rather than in one direction, and based on the concept that there are multiple starting points from which one can apply logic to a problem.” (Wikipedia) A quantum reality is sometimes called “Many-Worlds”. It implies that all possible alternative histories and futures are real, each representing an actual “world” or “universe”.  It is a reality of infinite possibilities.

Elliott Maynard, in his recent remarkable book Brave New Mind, writes that “The expansion of our traditional linear social consciousness into an advanced (form) of nonlinear thinking lets us consciously function within the quantum realm. We have the ability to shift from linear to quantum consciousness.., at will. This is accomplished by simply becoming aware of the shift from linear mode to the nonlinear quantum thinking mode. Since this quantum field functions holographicly with data existing outside the linear concepts of time, space and order, information can be accessed directly in something that is perfectly relevant in any specific situation or circumstance. Such quantum thinking is perfectly natural in more primitive or childlike mindsets.., and then we cultivate awareness of when we are operating nonlinearly.”

Maynard’s Breakthrough insight is that, “Planning to operate in Quantum thinking modalities starts when we switch on the Awareness that this state exists..,” and we then cultivate awareness of when we are operating non-linearly.
