The unknown appears invisible because we do not accept it in our prime series of events

It is as if we had trained ourselves to respond to red lights and to ignore green ones–or as if we read only every third or fourth line on a page of a book.

We attend to matters that seem to have practical value. whether or not we understand what space is, we move through it easily. We do not calculate how many steps it takes to cross a room, for instance. We do not need to understand the properties of space in scientific terms, in order to use it very well. We can see ourselves operate in space, however; to that extent it is known quality, apparent to the senses. Our practical locomotion is involved with it so we recognize it. Its mysterious or less-known properties scarcely concern us.

We move through probabilities in much the same way that we navigate in space. As we do not consciously bother with all of the calculations necessary in the process of walking down the street, so we also ignore the mechanisms that involve motion through probable realities. We manipulate through probabilities so smoothly, in fact, and with such finesse, that we seldom catch oneself in the act of changing our course from one probability to another.


Take a very simple action: You stand at a corner, wondering which direction to take. there are four streets involved. You briefly consider streets One and two, but rather quickly decide against them. You stand for a moment longer, gazing down Street Three, taking in the visual area. You are somewhat attracted, and imagine yourself taking that course. Your imagination places you there momentarily. Inner data is immediately aroused through conscious and unconscious association. Perhaps you are aware of a few memories that dimly come to mind. One house might remind you of one a relative lived in years ago. A three might be reminiscent of one that grew by your family home. But in that instant, inner computations occur as you consider making a fairly simple decision, and the immediate area is checked against all portions of your knowledge

You then look at Street Four. The same process happens again, this area also takes your attention. At the same time you almost equally hold in you mind the image of Street Three, for you can see them both at once from this intersection.


Let us say that you are almost equally attracted to both courses. You teeter between probabilities, having the full power to choose one street or the other as physical experience. If you had to stand there and write down all the thoughts and associations connected with each course of action before you made your decision, you might never cross the intersection to begin with. You might be hit by an automobile as you stood there, lost in your musings.

In the same way, it would take you some time to even walk from a table to a chair if you had to be consciously aware of all of the nerves and muscles that must first be activated. But while you stand almost equally attracted by streets Three and Four, then you send out mental and psychic energy in those directions.


Past association merge with present reality and form a pattern. Mentally, a part of you actually starts out upon each street–a projected mental image. As you stand there, then, in this case two such projected images go out onto streets Three and Four. To some extent these images experience “what will happen” if you yourself take one direction or the other. That information is returned to you instantaneously, and you make your decision accordingly. Say you choose Street Four. Physically you begin to walk in the direction. Street Four becomes your physical reality. You accept that experiences in your prime sequence of events. You have, however, already sent out an energized mental image of your self into Street Three, and you cannot withdraw that energy.

The portion of your that was attracted to that route continues to travel it. At the point of decision this alternate self made a different conclusion: that it experience Street Three;as physical reality. The self as you think of it is literally reborn in each instant, following an infinite number of events from the one official series of events that you recognize at any given “time.”



There is something highly important here concerning our technological civilization: As our world becomes more complicated, in those terms, we increase the number of probable actions practically available. The number of decisions multiples. You can physically move from one place on the planet to another with relative ease. Centuries ago, ordinary people did not have the opportunity to travel from one country to another with such rapidity. As space becomes “smaller,” our probabilities grow with in complexity. Our consciousness handles far more space data now.(In terms of time.) Watching TV, we are aware of events that occur on the other side of the earth, so our consciousness necessarily becomes less parochial. As this has happened the whole matter of probabilities has begun to assume a more practical cast. Civilizations are locked one into the other. Politicians try to predict what other governments will do. Ordinary people try to predict what their governments might do.

More and more, we are beginning to deal with probabilities as we try to ascertain which of a number of probable events might physically occur. When the question of probabilities is a practical one, then scientists will give it more consideration.


The entire subject is very important, however. As far as a true psychology is concerned, individuals who are made aware of the existence of probable realities will no longer feel trapped by events. Our consciousness is at a point where it is beginning to understand the significance of “predictive action”–and predictive action always involves probabilities.

I certain terms, we are the recognized “result” of all of the decisions we have made up to this point in our life. That is the official “I”. We are in no way diminished because other quite-as-official selves are “offshoots” of our own experience, making the choices we did not make, and choosing, then, alternate versions of reality.


We follow the prime series of events that you recognize as our own, yet all of us are concerned. These are not just esoteric statements, but valid clues about the nature of our own behavior, meant to give us a sense of our own freedom, and to emphasize the importance of our choice.

Cave, camp, and open fires

An open fire elicits certain responses from the cells that for instance, a furnace does not. The effect of the light plus the warmth on the skin is extremely healing. People sit by a fireplace in wintertime because it is unconsciously recognized that recuperative and therapeutic results occur. Simply put, the cells respond to fire-light in somewhat the same manner that flowers do to sunlight. The stimulation is much more than skin deep, however, and an open fire is cleansing. It even helps clear the blood.

Cavemen recognized this. I am not suggesting that we use our fireplaces instead of the furnace. I am saying that in wintertime there are definite health-value effects to be felt when we sit in front of an open fire. Two evenings a week would be quite effective.

The proximity of so many trees also has considerable health value, and to those doing psychic or other creative work the effects are particularly conducive to a peaceful stat of mind. trees are great users and yet conservators of energy, and they automatically provide much vitality to areas in which they are plentiful. This is physically obvious in scientific terms. Besides that, however, the consciousnesses of trees are remarkably kind and enduring.

We think of dogs as friends of man, and we personify gods inhuman terms. We think of them sometimes as guardians. In those terms, now, trees are also guardians. They are attached to the people they know. You cannot put a leash on them and walk them around the block, yet trees form a protective barrier about, say, a home or a neighborhood. They are actively concerned. They have personalities–certainly to the same extent that dogs do, yet of an entirely different nature. They respond to us. The trees in a neighborhood are particularly friendly, strong, and protective, and they will help renew our energies.

The air may be drier in a certain way. Ocean air is wet but it is healthy. River air is wet, but it may be healthy or unhealthy, according to the nature of the river, the land, and the attitude of the people. After a flood, the river air is felt to be a threat, and to many it is therefore unhealthy. Why do some people, after being flooded in one location, then move to another equally threatening environment.

The Borledim family deals parenthood.

These people are natural “earth parents.” That is they have the capacity to produce children who from a certain standpoint possess certain excellent characteristics. The children have brilliant minds, healthy bodies, and strong clear emotions.

While many people are working in specific areas, developing the intellect, for example, or the emotions of the body, these parents and their children produce offspring in which a fine balance is maintained. No one aspect of mind or body is developed at the expense of another aspect.

The personalities possess a keen resiliency of both body and mind, and serve as a strong earth stock. It goes without saying that members of one family often marry into other families. Of course the same thing happens here. When this occurs new stability in inserted for this particular family acts as a source-stock, providing physical and mental strength. Physically speaking, these people often have many children, and usually the offspring do well in whatever area of life is chosen. Biologically speaking, they possess certain qualities that nullify “negative” codes in the genes. They are usually very healthy people, and marriage into this group can automatically end generations of so-called inherited weaknesses.

These people (The Borledim) believe, then, in the natural goodness of sex, the body, and the family unit–however those attributes are understood in the physical society to which they belong. As a rule they possess an enchanting spontaneity, however, and all of their creative abilities go into the family group and the production of children. These are not rigid parents, though, blindly following conventions, but people who see family life as a fine living creative art, and children as masterpieces in flesh and blood. Far from devouring their offspring by an excess of overprotective care, they joyfully send their children out into the world, knowing that in their terms the masterpieces must complete themselves, and that they have helped with the under-painting.

The Borledim are the stock that so far has always seen to it that our species continues despite catastrophes, and they are more or less equally distributed about the planet and in all nationalities. They are most like Sumari. They will usually seek fairly stable political situations in which to bear their children, as the Sumari will to produce art. They demand a certain amount of freedom for their children, however, and while they are not political activists, like the Sumari their ideas often spring to prominence before large social changes, and help initiate them. The one big difference is that the Sumari deal primarily with creativity and the arts, an often subordinate family life, while family thinks of offspring in the terms of living art; everything else is subordinated to that “ideal.”

The Sumari of ten provide a cultural, spiritual, or artistic heritage for the species. This Borledim family provides a well-balanced earth stock a heritage in terms of individuals. These people are kind, humorous, playful, filled with a lively compassion, but too wise for the “perverted” kind of compassion that breeds on other individuals weaknesses.

An Artist expects his paintings to be good,or, at least he or she should. These people expect their children to be well-balanced, healthy, spiritually keen, and so they are. We will find members of the Borledim family in almost any occupation, but the main consideration will be on the physical family unit.

These parents do not sacrifice themselves for the sake of their children. They understand too well the burden that is placed upon such offspring. Instead, the parents retain their own clear sense of identity and their individual characteristics, serving as clear examples to the children of loving, independent adults.


These are the athletes. In whatever field, they devote themselves to perfecting the capacities of the body, which in others usually lie latent.

To some extent they serve as physical models. The vitality of creaturehood is demonstrated through the beauty, speed, elegance,and performance of the body itself. To some extent these people are perfectionists, and in their activities there are always hints of “super” achievement, as if even physically the species tries to go beyond itself. The members of this family actually serve to point out the unrealized capacity of the flesh–even as, for example, great Sumari artists might give clues as to the artistic abilities inherent, but not used, in the species as a whole. The members of this group deal, then, in performance. They are physical doers. They are also lovers of beauty as it is corporeally expressed.

Members of this (Zuli) family can often serve as models for the artist or the writer, but generally speaking they themselves transmit their energy through physical “arts” and performance. In our terms only, and historically speaking, they often appeared at the beginnings of civilizations, where direct physical bodily manipulation within the environment was of supreme importance. Then, normal physical reactions were simply faster then they are now, even while normal body relaxation was deeper and more complete.

The “Milumet family of mystics

Almost all of their energy is directed in an inward fashion, with no regard as to whether or not inner experience is translated in usual terms. These persons, for instance, may be utterly unknown, and usually are, for as a rule they care not a bit about explaining their interior activities to others nor, for that matter, even to themselves.They are true innocents,and spiritual. They may be underdeveloped intellectually, by recognized standards, but this is simply because they do not direct their intellect to physical focus.

Those belonging to this (Milumet) family will not be in positions of any authority, generally speaking, for they will not concentrate that long on specific physical data. However, they may be found in our country precisely where we might not expect them to be: on some assembly lines that require simple repetitive action–in factories that do not required speed, however. They usually choose less industrialized countries, then, with a slower pace of life. They have simple, direct, childish mannerisms, and may appear to be stupid. They do not bother with the conventions.

Strangely enough, though, they may be excellent parents, particularly in less complicated societies than our own. In our terms, they are primitives wherever they appear. Yet they are deeply involved in nature, and in that respect they are more highly attuned psychically than most other people are.

Their private experiences are often of a most venturesome kind, and at that level they help nourish the psyche of mankind.

The VOID Family

They have excellent precognitive abilities, which of course means that at least unconsciously they understand the motion of probabilities. They can work in any field. In our terms it is as if they perceive the future motion or direction of an idea, a concept, or a structure. They then work with all of their minds to bring the probability into physical reality.

In conventional terms they may appear to be great activists and revolutionaries, or they may seem to be impractical dreamers. They will be possessed by an idea of change and alteration, and will feel, at least, driven or compelled to make the idea a reality. They perform a very creative service as a rule, for social and political organizations can often become stagnant, and no longer serve the purposes of the large masses of people involved. Members of this (Void) family may also initiate religious revolutions, of course. As a rule, however, they have one purpose in mind: to change the status quo in whatever the area of primary interest.

It is already easy to see how the purpose of various families can inter-mesh, complement each other, and also conflict. Yet all in all, almost, they operate as systems of creative checks and balances.
