KHTK EXERCISE SET 1

The most accurate knowledge is made up of the perceptions obtained within a span of last 200 – 500 milliseconds. [Reference: the Wikipedia article on Memory.]

All other knowledge is extrapolated from one’s experiences, information, hypotheses, theories, principles, axioms, and self. Such extrapolations are subject to filtration through inconsistencies as follows:

Inconsistencies in

    1. Perceptions are “Engrams”

    2. Experiences are “Unwanted feelings & emotions”

    3. Information are “Indoctrination”

    4. Hypotheses are “Beliefs”

    5. Theories are “Doctrines”

    6. Principles are “Fixed ideas”

    7. Axioms are “Fixed viewpoints”

    8. Self are “Fixed identity”

Such inconsistencies add inaccuracies to extrapolated knowledge.

.

It is difficult to perceive inconsistencies when justifications are present. Justifications are made up of expectations, presumptions and speculations.

KHTK looking helps one perceive inconsistencies by use of mindfulness (see references above). The KHTK exercises help one learn to apply mindfulness  and reduce filters on a gradient.

Fixation of self (shame, blame, egotism. etc.) is a distraction that provides a wonderful array of justifications. A viewpoint is basically a subset of self. Attempts to understand another’s viewpoint is just another form of this fixation.

Instead of focusing on self or on viewpoint, if one focuses on dissolving inconsistencies, then life situations resolve must more swiftly and new situations are prevented from developing.

.

Thus, to make real progress in life:

  1. Use mindfulness till it becomes effortless as second nature.

  2. Recognize inconsistencies as they arise. Do not ignore them.

  3. Immediately look at the inconsistency more closely.

  4. Consistencies can be drawn upon quite easily as needed in Information Age of today.

  5. Simply track down the inconsistency and look at it closely until it dissolves.

  6. When the inconsistency is dissolved, then that’s it. Let it go.

  7. Focus on the next inconsistency as it arises.

.

Situations resolve much more swiftly in a group where everybody is applying mindfulness and focusing on dissolving inconsistencies as they arise.
