If we ran our lives like a business we'd ask about our mission, our long-term vision or goals.
Our primary problem seems to be the habitual structuring of experience.
Quite possibly, all other major problems are a result of this one. If we can solve this one, the other (local) issues will just naturally 'unravel'.
How do we know this structuring process is problematic?
Because all the structures it fabricates are absent from the zone of peak performance.
What is the 'zone' of peak performance?
This can be generally characterized as experiences of glow, flow, or zero. It is not characterized by any particular ordinary aspects of appearance (the forms of appearances 'don't in themselves seem to look different' as one becomes enlightened). In addition, zone experiences do not include experiential structures such as those fabricated by the field communique.
Conclusion: All conventional activities are best done without these (limiting) structures in one's experience. Apparently experiential structures obscure the zone of peak performance and experience.
In today's postmodern world we need a natural, secular, and cross-cultural vision of peak performance, realization, morality, and spiritual experience. This can be found in TSK and the zone.
What are the problematic structures the communique fabricates, and how are they established?
There is a dynamic, creative process that may be described as the field communique, or an existentializing, substantializing, indensifying, and dimensionalizing process. The process 'establishes' or 'fabricates' these structures and 'endows' them with a kind of authenticity, credibility, existence, substance, and independence.
This process, depending on current awareness and action, perpetuates, then eventually breaks up previously reinforced habits, complexes, or previously recorded actions (karma).
The limiting structures include: Personality complexes, here-there, now-then, linear time, container or extended space, self-other, observer-observed, . . . .
How does one dissolve these 'normal', or common experiential structures?
People often aren't even aware of the structures--we're obsessed with content, with conventional designations.
We can learn about, notice, and 'unravel' the communique itself, our one big habit, tracing it back to a 'shorter' process that tends to set up simpler interdependent read-outs with simpler, less troublesome structures. In the process we can learn how structures and meaning are generated. This process opens up, simplifies, and clarifies everything, and reveals an inherent fulfillment, moving us 'closer to the zone's attributes'. By just clearing away the clouds, more light naturally appears.
A new 'psychology', or transformative discipline, can be based on handling this one encompassing communique problem. If we can solve this one, other local (describable as content of a read-out) issues will just naturally 'unravel'.
In clarifying experience we learn to distinguish the practical, conventional, commonsense, outer, scientific world, and the experiential, private, inner values- and meaning-creation world of psychology and spirit.
