PES Rule #1: High Level of Respect

I propose three rules for those who participate with us at PES Network, either as workers, volunteers, forum members, inventors, entrepreneurs, or other networking functions. 1) Function in a respectable way, 2) be flexible, 3) pay attention. Vote Yes or No to adopt these.


by Sterling D. Allan
Pure Energy Systems News


I just finished another amazing seminar by Kirk Duncan with 3KeyElements and 500 participants at the Salt Palace Convention Center in Salt Lake City. 

I plan to do a separate report to tell you some of the phenomenal things I learned at their Master of Influence seminar that I think will be of benefit to us in our quest for exotic free energy solutions. As usual, I want to give them a chance to review what I write before I post it.

Meanwhile, there is one thing I would like to bring up now that I think could really help morale among our troops in the world of exotic free energy.

I would like to set a clear set of rules for participation with us at PES Network, whether it be in the comments, or in interacting as an inventor, investor, entrepreneur, or among team members.

We can be far more productive in the quest when we have rules established.

So, if it is okay with you, I would like to set these forth. Then, at the end, I'll present a survey where you can indicate your acceptance of these rules. If we have at least an 80% approval, then these rules will become binding on the Pure Energy Systems community, and all participants will be expected to comply with them, or they will be asked to not participate.

I've taken these rules from Kirk, that he uses at each of his events, with a slight modification, which I'll explain below. The rules are as follows:

1) Be Respectful
2) Be Flexible
3) Pay Attention

Rule #1: Be Respectful

The first, and most important rule, which Kirk also recommends, is to have a high level of respect for one another. This goes in all directions: from me as a presenter (or whoever else is presenting), to you as participants -- among yourselves, toward the presenter and the subject matter, and in your interactions with others in this sector.

We have a wide array of personalities and talents in our midst including highly intelligent, interesting, outside-the-box-thinking, intuitive, scientific, self-taught, insightful, humorous, witty, and serious people among us. In order to get the best from each of these types, it is important that we have respect for one another.

Google gives the following definition of "respect". (For those of you from other languages reading this, note the link for a translation of this word, with the first definition being given as: "a feeling of deep admiration for someone or something elicited by their abilities, qualities, or achievements.")

That chart at the bottom, showing usage over time for the word "respect", is very interesting. We are presently at the lowest ebb since 1800 for the usage of that word. I would conjecture that this is a function of the downward slide of civilization from having attributes worthy of respect. This increases the importance of setting "respect" as a rule of decorum among us who are seeking to get get back to what we've lost that is good as a civilization. I was born in 1963, which is close the the pinnacle point on the above curve where an upward trend that lasted around 50 years turned back around, and has been in a downward slide ever since.

An obvious question or objection that people might have is: "In order to respect something, it must be worthy of deep admiration; and if something is not worthy of admiration, how do you expect us to respect it?" The same holds true for people.

This is where our ability to create something new that doesn't presently exist to an adequate extent comes into play. We are seeking to become that which is worthy of emulation, individually, and as a movement, as well as the technology developments we are pursuing. So at a minimum, we need to have respect for the noble intentions that are mostly common among us; and we need to be respectable ourselves. We might not be able to change everything in the world, but we can change ourselves.

I realize that respect should be earned, and there is much that is unrespectable in this field of pursuit, including those who run scams or hoaxes, or who behave in ways that are less than admirable, or who are self-deluded. In these cases, we need to behave in a respectful way toward these situations. Another person's acting in a way that doesn't merit respect, does not give us license to act in an disrespectful way regarding them.

The third rule that Kirk has in his courses is: "MCD, Manage your Communication Devices." I see this as being part of #1, having proper respect, so I'll mention it here. Also, since most of our interactions are via the web, taking proper care of our cell phones and other electronic gadgets isn't the issue that it is when people are gathered together in person. But there is another part of MCD that has very much to do with our venue online, and it has to do with being respectful and tactful in how we use our mouths -- or writing comments as it is usually manifested here.

We expect people who participate with us to raise the bar when it comes to decorum in comments and forums. It's fine to disagree with someone. Just do your best to not be disagreeable in how you voice your disagreement. Jesus admonished: "Love your enemies. Do good to them that despitefully use you and persecute you." This is a higher path than meting out an eye for an eye. Be respectful.

For me, at the heart of being respectful is the quintessential principle of love.


Rule #2: Be Flexible

A second rule that is crucial in the quest for exotic free energy is to be flexible. This has several aspects.

  • Be open to new ideas, evidence, and methods regarding energy technology.
  • Ditto for being open to new ideas and methods regarding business methods and working with other people.
  • Realize that things usually take longer and cost more than expected at the various stages of bringing something to market.
  • In interacting with people, realize that there are many personality types in this field, and that what works for one personality type might not be appropriate for another personality type.

Here's Google's definition of flexible. (For those of you from other languages reading this, note the link for a translation of this word, with the first definition being given as: "capable of bending easily without breaking.")



Note that the usage of this word has the opposite trend to the word "respect."  The usage of "flexible" has increased significantly in recent times, peaking about 20 years ago. I see both good and bad reasons for this. On the good end of the scale, flexibility can be valuable for considering then implementing new and better ways of doing things. On the other extreme, the admonition to "be flexible" has been used effectively to implement draconian policies. At the heart of this issue is the heart of the people. When the heart is good, being flexible leads to more goodness. When the heart is backsliding, then being flexible leads to more backsliding. It's part of the package of free will.

So combining flexibility with respectability puts that flexing in the context of a good heart and upstanding principles.


Rule #3: Pay Attention

The third rule, which Kirk puts as #2 in his three rules, is to be present. This is a word that isn't going to translate very well into other languages because there are so many other meanings of the word. I prefer to use the more exact and not-variant terminology of "pay attention." 

At first blush, this is a concept seems to apply much more to in-person presentations and gatherings than to online presentations.

Online, if you're not interested, you can just move on. But if you're at a seminar, it makes more sense to expect that people will tune into the speaker in order to get the full benefit of what is being offered. Both have their advantages. Online is convenient, enabling people to come and go at will wherever they are, absorbing it in pieces, over time, or at least getting a snippet. Hence, the outreach of at least a piece of the information is potentially much greater. 

However, the main advantage of an in-person gathering is the power of the group setting, which cannot be mimicked online. There is something about being in the presence of the speaker along with an audience of engaged participants. There is a power that can come over and transform the group, which is harder to achieve online.

That said, I still think that paying attention is an important rule for us in our endeavors, even though it is mostly just online.

One of the biggest problems among people is misunderstandings between them because people don't have enough information, and they jump to conclusions based on what limited information they have. If you want to comment on a story, it's usually best if you first read the whole story. Otherwise, the parable of the blind men and the elephant ensues, as different people with only partial information shout at each other, vehemently defending their point of view, rather than realizing that maybe if they just took the time to first take in all the information, they might have a much more complete perspective.

For what it's worth, here is the usage graph for the word "attention" since 1800. Like the trend with the usage of the word "respect", it also shows a gradual decline in usage, and probably for the same reasons. But at least it shows a movement upward in the past 20 years, perhaps as a function of the awakening of a subset of the people to the awful situation we are getting ourselves into on this planet.




Conclusion

So, those are the three rules I think it would be good for us to adopt here at PES Network. These will apply to all of the following:

  • People who participate on the PES team.
  • People who participate in the comments and other PES forums (such as email discussion lists).
  • Inventors who seek PES assistance in bringing their technology forward.
  • People who work with PES to help inventors bring their technologies forward.

If you have suggestions for other rules we might want to consider (I think it would be best to keep it to three simple, easy to understand principles), feel free to present those in the comments below, or by email or phone.


Survey

Here is a poll for you to be able to vote on whether you think these are good rules for us to establish. If we get at least an 80% approval of these, then we will adopt them as our official policy.

"It is harder to crack a prejudice than an atom." // "I'd rather be an optimist and a fool than a pessimist and right." -- Albert Einstein

ADVISORY: With any technology, you take a high risk to invest significant time or money unless (1) independent testing has thoroughly corroborated the technology, (2) the group involved has intellectual rights to the technology, and (3) the group has the ability to make a success of the endeavor.
Schopenhauer
All truth passes through three stages:
   First, it is ridiculed;
   Second, it is violently opposed; and
   Third, it is accepted as self-evident.

-- Arthur Schopenhauer (1788-1860)

of the crowd you're a genius.
When you're two steps ahead,
you're a crackpot."
