A Statement of Intention (and supplemental info)
Posted by on
Memetic engineering is the skill of leveraging belief to specific intentions. By learning what beliefs and ideas are prevalent among certain sectors of the populace, one’s ability to see ways to transform society is increased. I want to show you what is going on in your head, in the heads of other people, and how you can change both your ideas and the ideas of others in the most effective ways possible. To do this I want to begin by examing the beliefs of the richest people in the country as a case study in a belief system that is stratified by income. I also intend to show how these beliefs are propagated, and how they might mutate or become hijacked. And lastly, I intend to provide tools for devising your own belief system engineered to empower you to become who you trully are…
Right. That’s where I’m starting from… let’s see if I accomplish this aim… supplemental info:
“You can ask for whatever you want to do, be or have, but also be willing for the universe to give you something better. End all of your requests with the phrase, ‘This or something better’ and you will be letting the universe know that ‘Thy will be done’ is of highest importance.
“Why is this so? Because the universe can see the big picture while your ego can’t.
“Your job is to ask for what you want, and then to act on the inner nudges you get to do things, like make phone calls, write letters, visit a certain person, or whatever…
“The universe itself will act to move you to what you want, and move what you want to you. All you have to do is let go, while acting on your inner prompts. Let go of fear, doubt, worry, disappointment, and any other negative emotion that might make you feel low.”

“Your programming leads to your thoughts; your thoughts lead to your feelings; your feelings lead to your actions; your actions lead to your results.”

“The method by which desire for riches can be transmuted into its financial equivalent, consists of six definite, practical steps, being:
“1) Fix in your mind the exact amount of money you desire. It is not sufficient merely to say, “I want plenty of money.’ Be definite as to the amount. (There is a psychological reason for definiteness…)
“2) Determine exactly what you intend to give in return for the money you desire. There is no such reality as ‘Something for Nothing.’ The only way you can get massively rich is to contribute massively to society. It’s the law.
“3) Establish a definite date when you intend to possess the money you desire.
“4) Creeate a defnite plan for carrying out your desire, and begin at once, whether you are ready or not, to put this plan into action.
“5) Write out a clear, concise statement of the amount of money you intend to acquire, name the time limit for its acquisition, state what you intend to give in return for the money, and describe clearly the plan through which you intend to accumulate it.
“6) Read your written statement aloud, twice daily, once just before retiring at night, and once after arising in the morning. As you read – see, feel and believe yourself already in possession of the money.
“It is important that you follow the instructions described in these six steps. It is especially important that you observe and follow the instructions in the sixth step.
“And as you do, enter into the feel of the vision until you are seduced to believe it’s real, just like a real dream. Where are you? What do you see? Who are you with? What do you hear? What are people saying? What charities are you helping? What is the weather doing? How do you feel? What are you saying and doing? What do you do to celebrate? Are you at dinner? Where? What is the course?…”

“You must get the person to call into question his beliefs and not push a new belief structure onto him. Statistical evidence is almost useless in changing beliefs.”

“I like one quote that you read earlier in this book, also from Arthur C. Clarke — Just like J. K. Rowling, I’m not afraid to repeat important ideas. ‘Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.’
“In working with creativity experts for the last two years, I’ve spent time on this issue. Thay label it creative problem solving. When approaching something that at first feels/appears impossible, these creativity experts ask, ‘In what ways might we ______?’ The blank is filled in with a specific goal that may contribute toward a working solution This may sound like hedging the task, but an indirect approach often proves useful.”
