From the Author
In the Name of Real World Views
After more than twenty five years of conscious labor and intentional suffering which at first began somewhat unintentionally and owing to chance presence of a certain peculiarly composed psychological trait which sparks off a long and arduous journey, the works of Dr. Tan Man-Ho have finally taken shape but the author has been withholding them to this day as the time is not ready. Owing to the vital message of the works to humanity, the author has finally decided to release his master piece of inner development which comprises 22 books. which he calls it "Real World Views".
The author's own similar development is independent of the Gurdjieff-Ouspenskian line of thought prior to the year 1975. He has managed to come very close to the Gurdjieff-Ouspenskian type of thinking when he first wrote 'A Philosophy on Material-Reflection' (1971-1975). After his vital contact with a remarkable individual who has similar essence pursuits, the author continues his own inner pursuit resulting in a tremendous amount of expansion and stabilization of his own inner dimensions leading ultimately to his own creation of his numerous master pieces.
Thanks to this vital contact with a great friend at the crucial stage of the development of his psyche during his formatory years, the Real World Views (also known as Views from the Real World Series) is ultimately brought into existence for the benefit of the esoteric circle specifically and humanity in general.
Real World Views, Book 13 is written aphoristically and semi-aphoristically with gravity-center essence thought concentrations not necessarily based on smooth flowing from one concentration of thoughts into another. But each thought concentration is complete within itself as a stable concept or set of concepts. The author has decided not to fill in pretentious logicnestrian smootheners but to leave these empty connectors or buffers of gravity-center concentrations to the pleasure of the readers to expand their own mentation as soon as they begin their work on self.
Real World Views books would be released gradually when the time is ripe.
It covers vital areas on inner work and the individuals. It examines the peculiar nature of the trialectics between man and woman as real components of the sociocosmos and advises on the proper handling of this trialectics. It examines the unbecoming nature of social interactions and being-social organizations. Then it looks into being and knowledge, consciousness, essence and personality, the mind, sex energy, experience and love forces. It further explores being-foods, being-formations and journeys through longevity. It ventures into being-sounds, dimensions, being-religion, the three worlds and psyche hydrogens and energies. There are some excursions into the world of Taiqi, yoga, acu-therapy and ancient exercises and views them with modern management concepts of managing psychic centers. This volume also examines education, marketing of psychic elements, attachments, language and body plastics. It expouses daring truths on sociocosmic negatives such as power objects, the process of reciprocal destruction of beings, the nature of reciprocal exploitation, psychophysical diseases and enneagramic constipation. It touches on aesthetics and ethics, gravity-center attraction and repulsion and how one might separate oneself from oneself and a look at the hackney carriage. It gives a start to new outlook on emotion ache, footistry and being-psyche mathematics.
The author feels that to acquire one's own essence in this direction, one must absorb all that is in the body of Gurdjieff and Ouspensky and all the related being-works by related authors, and grow beyond its boundary carrying with it the identities and non-identities, the personality and essence and everything that could be carried forward into the future. This removes the petty and immature fears and self-guilt of plagiarism that could impede one's own acquiring of an essence and defeat the very purpose of the work itself.
Nay more, the author has written numerous unpublished short works entitled An Inquiry into the Nature and Process of the Recent Privatization and Economic Reforms and On the Possibility of Transforming the Captive Communication and Behavioral Styles in a Manager. Currently, he is also working on his incomplete work entitled A Treatise on the Development of Noumenal Reflection, Psychic Centers and Psyche Hydrogens. His Books 18, 19 and 20 of the Real World View Series (October 1993 discourses) would be a major dimension for a new breakthrough in understanding the sociocosmos.
It is the intention of the author to discover and develop quality ideas, at his level of being-capability, for the consumption of his esoteric readers all over the world at an affordable price and to keep open an opportunity for the masses.
