  Volney on MAKEFORCE

[This is actually Part 2 of previous item, which should be read first.]



Bubbles and cults are the same thing. If you doubt that, make a negative remark about Bitcoin or Hubbard on a public forum. You'll be inundated by the identical flood of abuse from the cultbubblists.

The Aberree was a good example of the Gold Rush phenomenon in the cult variant of cultbubbles.

Hart had been part of the Hubbard cult for a while, realized that some of the principles made sense but Hubbard was using them destructively. So he started a magazine to advocate the valid principles without the cult aspects. Like the suppliers of shovels to prospectors, his magazine wouldn't have existed without the cultbubble, because there wouldn't have been a population of discontented cultists.

Volney Mathison, another discontented Hubbardite, used the same tension to help sell his writings and services.

This piece by Volney illustrates how a cult-based theory can nevertheless be turned toward good when you operate outside the cultbubble. He's writing in dense Hubbardian terms while advocating Carverian MAKEFORCE. I don't have any trouble with the Hubbardian language, which isn't far removed from my own vaguely mystical concept of MAKEFORCE. My grammar gland is seizing and cramping at the repetitive and unnecessary ONES. Since I already edited his schematic for style, I'll resist the temptation to edit his text.....
Looking carefully in this way, I have, for my part, become aware of one specific brilliant thread of action that is apparent in the achievements of every great figure of present time and of past history; something that all such great figures manifest, irrespective of their formal beliefs. This is the dynamic sustaining of positive mental images until these subnuclear energy forms are developed into tangible creations in the physical universe.

How does one learn to create and sustain positive mental images until they are materialized into actuality?

By action. Only by dynamic action.

For example: let us say you feel inadequate, unhappy; you are interminably a student, a patient, a disciple seeking "the way". This is a negative action. It involves mental images in the back of your mind, or both in front and in back, of yourself as an inferior being. Reverse this! How? By creating a mental image of yourself having successfully DONE some one single thing, however small, that aids the welfare of same other human being. Then do it. Reverse the business of always receiving. Give outwardly.

Looking around, one will observe that happy people are busy doing constructive things for others. The workers who build Electro-psychometers, or steam irons, or the like, are sane and wholesome people -- happy, not just because they are well paid but because they know they are producing useful products for other human beings.

So, if one wishes to aid "one's own case", a good way is to create positive mental images in one's mind of doing useful things for other people. One need not begin with great actions. Begin with small items, capable of rapid and sure achievement. Don't go to seed, sitting around trying to digest a messy mass of autocratic instruction. Act positively, and act NOW. If only experimentally, try now, from this moment, to begin radiating outwardly in a positive manner. One can never learn this technique by "knowing" or studying; one can learn it only by ACTION.
Now one needs to go and MAKE onething to get those ONEs out of one's circulation.

My Photo
Name:
Location: Spokane

Polistra was named after the original townsite of Manhattan (the one in Kansas). When I was growing up in Manhattan, I spent a lot of time exploring by foot, bike, and car. I discovered the ruins of an old mill along Wildcat Creek, and decided (inaccurately) that it was the remains of the original site of Polistra. Accurate or not, I've always liked the name, with its echoes of Poland (an under-appreciated friend of freedom) and stars. ==== The title icon is explained here. ==== Switchover: This 2007 entry marks a sharp change in worldview from neocon to pure populist. ===== The long illustrated story of Polistra's Dream is a time-travel fable, attempting to answer the dangerous revision of New Deal history propagated by Amity Shlaes. The Dream has 8 episodes, linked in a chain from the first. This entry explains the Shlaes connection.
