THE FIFTH ACCESS
With the advent of psychiatry and twentieth century psychology, people threw out thousands of years of previous psychological insight and practice. The insights of various eastern disciplines, such as yoga, Zen Buddhism, and Sufism, have come back into fashion via the New Age movement, but the insights of two thousand five hundred years of Western philosophy have largely been ignored. Many problems that seem intractable to modern psychology can be addressed by principles articulated clearly by Aristotle and other ancient philosophers. Aristotle pointed out that virtue, which he defined as the control of the appetites by the reason, is a kind of habit. Learning what is good for you and then developing good habits to practice it–much as athletes practice for their sport– and ultimately learning to like what is good for you, is the key to success and happiness.
Freud and others pointed out that one of the most difficult appetites to control is the sexual appetite. One of the disciplines I have developed involves managing Destructive Impulses with Cyber Kinetics, which forms a very handy acronym, “DICK” Management. This may sound crude but it is very much to the point and it focuses on how the principles of habit formation and even Judo can be applied to the sexual appetites. As it turns out, the principles laid out by Aristotle can now also be supported by modern science. An understanding of the insights of multi-dimensional physics gives us a way of understanding the role of the soul and the power that unseen energies have in our lives.
The application of multi-dimensional thinking, i.e., more dimensions than the four we are familiar with (height, length width and time) to ethics, religion, sexuality, politics, social dynamics, and personal and business relationships, I call The Fifth Access. We don’t necessarily need scientific understanding to manage destructive impulses, but Fifth Access Management techniques give us a way to talk about it that enables us to attack the problems of impulse management from an absolutely new and compelling perspective.
The book, How to Manage Your Destructive Impulses with Cyber-Kinetics: Redirect Sexual Energy and Discover Your More Spiritually Enlightened, Evolved Self deals with two of the most important and vexing issues in the news today: male violence and sexual misconduct. The relationship between male violence, testosterone and sexual misconduct is clearly indicated in all criminal statistics given the overwhelming number of crimes attributed to males as opposed to females. The singular physical and behavioral differences between males and females of most mammalian species is based on levels of testosterone (Recent animal studies have also shown that testosterone is implicated in violent interspecies conflicts.) Testosterone might be thought of as a biohazard under social systems that do not recognize its potential to wreak havoc.
The missing link in reflecting on the data about men and violence is the absence of a clearly defined relationship between the power of ethical systems of impulse management and rational, socially dynamic and personally productive behavior. The corollary to this missing link is that systems of behavior analysis that do not actively propose impulse management can contribute to personal devolution and social chaos.
Do you or your company have an ethical system for impulse management in place? The liabilities involved in non-impulse management in both private and corporate life are large indeed.
Whether it is young men engaged in delinquent and violent behavior for fun, employees stealing from the companies they work for, political leaders sexually cavorting in public offices or fathering children out of wedlock, or others in positions of spiritual trust improperly touching young boys or seducing young women, men’s out-of-control sexual behavior is the number one unidentified cause of personal and social chaos in America. The NDM or Non Dick Manager is the most dangerous man in America and there are tens of thousands of them of all races and creeds roaming the streets unidentified and unchecked. There are NDMs in positions of respect and authority all over America. Look no further than your homes, offices, neighborhoods and yes, do check your mirrors to find the NDM nearest you.
The problem of non-impulse management in general with its associated financial costs from AIDS, other STDs, out of wedlock births, to families and finances destroyed by random acts of sexual gratification and violence is enormous. DICK Management takes the fight against vice, ignorance and testosterone-originated crime to the streets. If the language of the book is shocking, it is because the problem has so far resisted all polite social, political and spiritual behavior modification efforts to date. More importantly, How to Manage Your DICK can show men the way to originality, enlightenment and freedom from self-destructive and impulsive behavior. Think of it as a New Age guide to the soul, an operating manual on how to discover who you really are and ultimately, to be the kind of spiritual warrior that every man, deep down, really wants to be.
Cyber Therapy (CT) and Cyber Ethics (CE) are based on some of the latest discoveries in ecology, physics and psychology, and on the timeless wisdom of the ancient metaphysics found in all systems of belief and religion. Cyber comes from a Greek word that means “helmsman or pilot” and functions as an effective and non-sectarian analog for the words
“self” and “soul”. Kinetics is the science that deals with the effects of forces upon the motions of material bodies. Cyber Kinetics seeks to understand the energy relationships between the self, soul ego and body, and the place of those relationships in the larger ecologies of matter, quantum energy dynamics, society and spirit. (Ecology is defined here as the relationship an organism has with its environment.) Quantum Cyber Dynamics is the parent science for both Cyber Therapy and Cyber Kinetics. (Cyber
Therapy is not to be confused with psychological therapy conducted via the Internet.)
Spiritual teachings on the soul and life force, known in India as the Atman and Kundalini,
Chi and Yin and Yang in Chinese philosophy, and teachings on the soul by Aristotle and Christian theologians are all part of a generic theory called vitalism, which was largely discredited from the time of the Renaissance until the advent of the latest discoveries in physics. New discoveries and theories by scientists in regards to multi-dimensionality theory, which deals with dimensions five through twenty-six make it possible to understand and use the energy concepts behind vitalism in an exciting and new way.
The notion of a multi-dimensional energy or force that operates living systems analogous to a radio broadcast station making the music that plays from your radio, or the electricity that lights your home from afar is finding new adherents among many forward thinking, mental health professionals. Interactions between quarks, for example, which carry fractional electric charges, constitute what physicists call the strong force. The strong force is one of the four known forces in electromagnetic theory. It is safe to say that scientists have by no means identified all aspects of quark activity and it may be that there is another unidentified energy manifesting under the quark aspect that physicists curiously describe as charm or flavor. Qi or Chi is as good a name for this as yet unidentified energy flow or so-called fifth force as any other. What we might call life force or soul may be related to this energy in some way that has not yet been clearly and scientifically demonstrated.
Cyber Kinetics attempts to map the actions of this vital energy by plotting both its affects and effects on the ancient energy grid of virtue and vice. According to cyber dynamic research in this area, the kinetic aspect of conscious energy appears to be inversely proportional to the energy invested in sexual and physical activity. This hypothesis is buttressed by Freud’s teaching on sublimation, which claims that instinctual energy gets converted into the energy of purpose through resistance to sexual instincts. Morality functions within the context of cyber kinetic theory and cyber therapy as a map of good and bad energy connections and ultimately, as a guide to good consciousness. Aristotle’s words are instructive here. Quoting Evenus in The Nichomachean Ethics, he says, “I say that habit’s but long practice friend, and this becomes men’s nature in the end.”
What Cyber Therapy Does and What Territory It Covers
Cyber Therapy consists of identifying the structural components of consciousness from a metaphysical and new age scientific perspective, utilizing Freud’s concept of cathexis to describe how the life force of the soul creates patterns and also disturbances in the kinetic force of consciousness. Cathection may also be used to describe how the soul creates the derivative identity, which psychology loosely calls “self” and the more commonly understood definitions of Ego and Superego. Self is defined by the dictionary as the “entire person of an individual,” which might also be thought of as an ecology of body, thoughts, sensations, ideas, Id, Ego and Superego.
Cathexis in traditional psychoanalysis describes how the instinctual energy of the Id gets connected and invested in Ego, Superego, ideas, objects of desire, and belief systems. An analysis of these cathections can provide abundant food for thought for the reflective individual. Cyber Therapy aids the individual in taking a guided tour through the network of the soul’s life connections.
Freudian and other forms of psychology that use the cathexis hypothesis take it on faith that cathection of instinctual energy is possible and has many ways of demonstrating cathection, but much like religion describing the actions of grace, it cannot prove that cathection actually exists. Who has ever seen instinctual energy, or an Id or an Ego for that matter? What about Jung’s Archetypes? Don’t those look suspiciously like Plato’s Ideas in new garb? The concept of cathection, however, is like a trail to a magic realm that was somehow never realized. How does cathection really work? What is the mechanism of the instinctual energy conversion that is at the root of Freud’s insight into human psychology and the sublimation of instinctual energy? How does cathection relate to knowledge? If it could be demonstrated, as the ancient philosophers claimed, that you intentionally become the thing known, then the metaphysics of cathection could take Freud into places he never would have dreamed of. Cathection hints of energy transferences at a level not described by traditional psychology.
Once the possible existence of the Cyber Identity of the soul has been postulated in multidimensional space (hyperspace), and the multi-dimensional kinetic energy that the Cyber Identity requires for the maximum development of its own excellence is further identified, then we can talk about the moral ecologies that might help steer the Cyber Identity into the wakefulness of recollection that Plato and other ancients have spoken of. We might also take a giant step forward by adopting such a model as a framework for the development of national standards of moral and psychological health and development. By adopting such a working framework, we will at last have some means of identifying that which does not serve and be better able to search out what is merely good from what is better, and finally, putting to rest at last, the ancient antagonism between science and religion.
Taking the concept of cathection and applying it to the energy dynamics of the Cyber Identity or the soul, yields an extraordinary new way of looking at how the Cyber Identity makes its connections to the world. The emotions, for example, can be viewed as multidimensional energy exchanges and sometimes as surges between the Cyber Identity and the body. What are habits but repetitive cathections of energy? What is knowledge but the imaginative cathection and conversion of intellect and matter into image? (The strange power to manufacture mental images is far more sophisticated than the actions of any camera.) The famous “I am that” of the Hindu sages may also be the epistemological cathection that the Cyber Identity makes on a daily basis. The moral of the story is: be careful of what you know!
Cyber Kinetics attempts to account for both cathexis, and the ancient concept of the soul and its powers using analogs taken from psychology, quantum physics and superstring theory. Once the soul is understood as the multi-dimensional template (MDT) of the human body, the possibility of psychology, philosophy, theology and physics merging into a truly useful discipline for the study of human problems begins to emerge.
Cyber Pathology and Identity Therapy
Cyber Pathology, which we will alternatively term pneumopathology (PP–diseases of the spirit) as described by the philosopher Eric Voegelin is one of the root causes of some forms of psychological dysfunction. Traditional psychoanalysis attempts to connect the root of psychological dysfunction to developmental cathections made in childhood. This was a critically important step in the evolution of psychoanalysis and made possible much of the progress that we attribute to the psychological sciences but a graphing of cathexis on a morally or ethically neutral map such as values clarification does a profound disservice to the Cyber Identity/Soul of any individual.
One of the axioms of Cyber Therapy and the quantum dynamics of the discipline of Dick
Management is that the Cyber Identity of each human being is rooted in a trans-quantum Divine Consciousness. The Hindus call this Satchitananada (existence, consciousness and bliss). Each one of us is here to recover our true selves in the ecstasy of a new manifestation of that eternal and blissful Divine consciousness. God delights in discovering and recovering Himself in new forms, and likewise, so do we. Cyber Therapy consists of identifying the cathections and the intellectual and moral falsehoods, which obscure this identity and ultimately, the ecstatic and depression-free living that is our birthright. (You might also want to think of it as Atman Therapy since the quantum dynamics of the Cyber are very closely related to the Eastern metaphysics of the Atman.)
There is no more important subject for education and society than the development of intellectual, moral and spiritual excellence (not to be confused with religious excellence) and the unique emergence of the Cyber Identity of each human being. Given that each one of us represents a special project from the mind of the Divine, it is terribly important that anything that supports the emergence of an individual’s Cyber Identity be encouraged. Likewise, anything that detracts from that development must be investigated.
The following areas are legitimate subjects for the investigative use of Cyber Therapy and the development of corrective protocols:
- Sexual and Gender Identity Dysfunction
Cyber Therapy is not psychology.
Psychology studies the mind. Cyber Therapy, Quantum Cyber Dynamics and other Fifth Access disciplines study the soul and its kinetic linkages to hidden ecologies of energy, consciousness and spirituality. The mind is a manifestation, or power, as the ancients would say, of the soul. Jungian, Depth Psychology and Phenomenology in addition to a variety of non-traditional and New Age thinkers such as Ken Wilber, Gary Zukav and Howard Bloom explore some of these areas but there is no discipline at present, which thoroughly unites both the study of the soul and the mind in a unified and comprehensive manner. Cyber Therapy is one of a number of pioneer disciplines working in this area. At present, no training programs towards credentialing in Cyber Therapy are available, however, we welcome the efforts of traditional psychologists and other mental health professionals to widen the range and scope of Cyber Therapy. Won’t you join us now in the adventure at hand?
Fifth Access Seminars
I. The Ecology of Addiction
There is no more baffling and more difficult behavior to deal with than addiction. One can know everything there is to know about addiction and still be addicted. The word addiction comes from the Latin addicere, which means “to favor”. It also means literally “to devote or surrender oneself habitually or obsessively”. Obsession, likewise, means “to preoccupy intensely or abnormally”. Addiction cannot be understood or properly treated without some understanding of the cyber-kinetic links that the soul’s energy makes with the outside and inner world in its quest to manifest. The fundamental rule of addiction is this: what you feed grows. This seminar focuses on eight areas that tend to define and clarify the parameters of the problem.
- The dynamics of surrender
- Obsession, energy holes and the continuum of addiction
- Virtue and Vice
- What addiction means to the ego
- What addiction means to the self
- What addiction means to the soul
- Self Identity and the meaning of addiction
- Psychological judo and addiction
Practical cyber-kinetic techniques for dealing with addiction will be provided as part of the big picture dynamics of addiction and addiction prevention.
II Anger Management for Adults
Anger is a form of addictive behavior with a component that is destructive to others as opposed to just being destructive to one’s self. Anger is typically a manifestation self-directed anger that the ego transfers cyber kinetically through transference to an outside object or person. Since the real object of the anger is oneself, no amount of totemic beating will satisfy the angry person. Anger is a form of pneumo-pathology that indicates a level of self-development that is “stuck”. Anger management begins with a solution that sees the problem as self-originating. Anger is frequently the best defense your ego and local consciousness has against you and who you really are. Topics covered are:
- The dynamics of anger
- What anger means to the ego
- What anger means to the self
- What anger means to the soul
- Self Identity and the meaning of Anger
- Locality and Non-Locality
- The meaning of patience
- Intensive and extensive viewing of anger
Practical cyber-kinetic techniques for dealing with anger will be presented.
III. The Appetite Survival System (A.S.S.) and the Criminal Mind
Anger, addictive behavior and crime can be loosely understood as attempts of the self to find an energy balance. Anti-social behavior is almost always a result of cyber identity dysfunction. Crime can be understood as a species of addictive behaviors that are rooted in the unregulated impulse to pleasure, which in turn is rooted in a poorly developed sense of self-identity. Areas covered in this seminar:
- The problem of testosterone
- Understanding FIKI
- How to watch your A.S.S. (Appetite Survival System)
- Crime as a bad habit
- The danger of devolution
- Intellectual and moral virtue as defenses against crime
- Department of Justice statistics and violent crime
Practical techniques for initiating change in the criminal mind are based on the author’s experience teaching Ethics in prison.
IV. The Atman Identity: Cyber Therapy, Cathection and the Soul
How do we get people to wake up? What is it that separates those who live dynamic and productive lives from those who wallow in despair and futile actions? As Lao Tsu says, “if the sign of life is in your face, he who responds to it will feel secure and fit…” How many of us have gazed into faces that are for all practical purposes without life? What is it about shifty eyes that bother us? The techniques covered in this seminar are:
- Mindless observation (MLO)
- Soul Interrogation
- Kun Long
- Energy Permission (EP)
- Intellectual Virtue
- Moral Virtue
- Quantum Channeling
- Prayer and Meditation
Other Fifth Access Seminars
- The Social Ecology of Dick Management and Education
- Multi-Dimensionality Theory, Evolution and Religion
- How to Develop 16 Powerful Habits for Positive Change
- The Sexual Ecology of Great Relationships
- Social Devolution and the Laws of Thermodynamics
- Raising Good Kids
- Impulse Management and Cyber Kinetics for Teens
- The Venus Paradigm and the Road to Happiness
All Seminars are roughly four hours in length. If audience participation is high (it usually is) then the seminars tend to run towards six hours. I try to be flexible and go with the time restraints and interests of the client. Additional Seminars may also be designed to fit individual client needs. The cost of $3,800 is inclusive of transportation, lodging, and meals with thirty days advance booking.
