Reference: Data Series 18—SUMMARY OF OUT-POINTS

## SUMMARY OF OUT-POINTS

These are the fundamental out-points required in Data Analysis and Situation Analysis. It is very important that these outpoints correspond to the ideal scene being evaluated, and not to one’s personal ideals. The ideal scene is very specific to the purpose of what is being evaluated. The personal ideals can be very general and subject to fixed ideas.

.

## OMITTED DATA

This can be an omitted person, terminal, object, energy, space, time, form, sequence, or even an omitted scene. Anything that can be omitted that should be there is an out-point. This is easily the most overlooked out-point as it isn’t there to directly attract attention.

In crime it is as bad to omit as it is to commit. Yet no one seems to notice the omissions as actual crimes. In any analysis which fails to discover a WHY one can safely conclude the why is an omission and look for things that should be there and aren’t.

.

## ALTERED SEQUENCE

Sequence means linear (in a line) travel either through space or time or both. Any things, events, object, sizes, in a wrong sequence is an out-point. The number series 3, 7, 1, 2, 4, 6, 5 is an altered sequence, or an incorrect sequence. A cart-before-the-horse out of sequence is an out-point.

The basic outness is no sequence at all. This leads into FIXED IDEAS. It also shows up in what is called disassociation, an insanity. Things connected to or similar to each other are not seen as consecutive. Such people also jump about subjectwise without relation to an obvious sequence. Disassociation is the extreme case where things that are related are not seen to be and things that have no relation are conceived to have.

One has to think in sequences to have correct sequences. Persons who do not think in sequence do not see altered sequences in their own actions or areas.

.

## DROPPED TIME

Time that should be noted and isn’t would be an out-point of “dropped time”. It is a special case of an omitted datum. Dropped time has a peculiarly ferocious effect that adds up to utter lunacy. A news bulletin from 1814 and one from 1922 read consecutively without time assigned produces otherwise undetectable madness.

In madmen the present is the dropped time, leaving them in the haunted past. Just telling a group of madmen to “come up to present time” will produce a few miraculous “cures”. Time aberrations are so strong that dropped time well qualifies as an out-point.

.

## FALSEHOOD

When you hear two facts that are contrary, one is a falsehood or both are. Propaganda and other activities specialize in falsehoods and provoke great disturbance. Willful or unintentional a falsehood is an out-point. It may be a mistake or a calculated or defensive falsehood and it is still an out-point.

Anything that seeks to be what it isn’t is a falsehood and an out-point. Fiction that does not pretend to be anything else is of course not a falsehood.

.

## ALTERED IMPORTANCE

An importance shifted from its actual relative importance, up or down, is an out-point. A number of things of different importances can be assigned a monotone of importance. That will also be an out-point. All importances are relative to their actuality.

.

## WRONG TARGET

Mistaken objective is an out-point. An example would be “removing the slums” to make way for modem shops, which kills the tourist industry.

Wrong target is commonly mistaken identity. It is also mistaken purposes or goals. Injustice is usually a wrong target out-point. Arrest the drug consumer, award the drug company would be an example.

A large sum of aberration is based on wrong targets, wrong sources, wrong causes. Incorrectly tell a patient he has ulcers when he hasn’t and he’s hung with an out-point which impedes recovery.
