Now here's a thread dear to my heart!

"Out 2D" is inevitable, with rare exceptions.

This is not becaue "the Second Dynamic is too hot", as Ron copped out on the

It's, like every other problem subject, a matter of misunderstanding.  In
this case, of severe misdefinition.

When, in my review of Ron's errors, I came to the Dynamics, I found that he
had followed the insanity of the world.  He left three contextually similar
but factually distinct activities collapsed together.  To accommodate this
he had to create the second dynamic.  Do not forget that he was not firm is
its place, describing it as a sort of sub-group (3rd Dn).  Or that his own
"2D was a lifelong shambles.

The 3 elements of "2D" are sex, love/marriage and children.

Sex is a body thing, plain and simple.  So I placed it accordingly, in the
1st D(omain - couldn't have confusion over 'which Dynamics, Ron's or
Allen's, no could we?)

Sposes and children really are a sub-group.  But a group nonetheless, and
one as often abused, sabotaged and sacrificed as any other.  So I put it
into Groups where it belongs.

As you can see, this leaves only Love/Marriage, and it begins to appear that
the 3rd Dynamic is actually the 2nd Domain.  And so it is, because when you
recognize that Love/Marriage is actually an attempt to meld beingnesses into
a new consciousness, you have to place Love/Marriage into the Spiritual Domain.

Once you get it together like this, you see that what a particular
relationship looks like is a function of the inter-Domainal agreements of
those involved, and nobody else's business.

Of course, there are a few other adjustments I found necessary, and I like
infinity, so I let the number of Domains work out to the same quantity of
"8" that Ron brought from the Mission.  The major difference is, I wasn't
left with a need to add further units to include ethics, etc.

      Sometimes it is easier to look at complex things one section at a
      time.  This is particularly true of life.

      Life is both large and complex.  It encompasses everything you
      encounter, and its inter-relationships are nearly infinite.  Trying
      to figure it out is intimidating to say the least.  Even just
      trying to isolate and analyze your own personal life, actions and
      relationships can be a dizzying task.

      The problem of confronting life often seems too vast in scope.  But
      therein lies a large part of the solution: one of the biggest
      reasons people have difficulty putting their lives in order is the
      failure to narrow the scope by cutting the problem down into
      manageable segments.

      As you grow to adulthood you reach ever further into life,
      increasing your spheres of participation and influence.  The extent
      of the influence you develop is your domain.

      A domain is a sphere of influence: a territory, realm or zone over
      which one has taken control or over which one exercises

      Domain is the playground; dominion is the power or authority. 

      Influence may be limited or extensive, but it can always be divided
      into several topical areas, such as self, the environment, etc. 
      Each area can then be examined separately.  Once you have analyzed
      the various parts of life as it relates to you, you can usually
      harmonize them fairly easily.

      We have divided life in general along topical lines.  There are
      individuals, families, groups, other life forms, and so forth. 
      This means that we can list a set of domains that will work for
      everyone, whether a particular person is active in all of them or

      The following list, admittedly arbitrary, is a logical division of
      life into spheres of action --domains.  Action rather than
      beingness, because when we speak of living we are really talking
      about doing things.  Spheres rather than circles, because when we
      think, we don't limit our concepts to two-dimensional flatness. 
      And, domains rather than boundaries, because we should not try to
      be mechanical or overly structured in describing this concept.

      The idea here is to go beyond the ideas of "moving in certain
      circles" and of having clear and defensible boundaries, to
      envisioning ourselves immersed in and interactive with the self-
      weaving fabric of life itself.

                              The Domains

            1.    PERSONAL                5.     ENVIRONMENT
            2.    GROUPS                  6.     IDEAS
            3.    HUMANITY                7.     AESTHETICS
            4.    LIFE FORMS              8.     AETHEREAL

      A more detailed listing with subdivisions follows.  It should not
      be considered all-inclusive or absolute.  Some people insist on
      rearranging it a bit.

      Notice that each domain, as you progress "outward" from the
      personal, is part of the next, and that the AEthereal folds back
      into the personal.
