Congratulations, you may now pick up your Masters in
Psychology, Six Sigma and/or Zen Master Certification.  And
to think, you didn’t have to wade through all that nonsense
about how the energy of the universe flows through your
sternum, or spent hours saying OHM, or endured weeks
wasted becoming familiar with ideas about hidden portions of
conscious or sat through numerous expensive seminars
being drilled on methods for obscuring the concept of
standard deviation. All of those ideas were manufactured out
of thin air by sociopaths or other people haters to justify their
own existence in the first place. By contrast, our sense of
being a sociopath requires no outside justification.
When constructing a manifesto it is important to be aware that there are
two key aspects of success that you simply cannot impart: Luck and Talent.
So slam them, not in terms of their existence, but rather in terms of their
attainability. (Manifesto Master V1.25) First rephrase this: Many people
attribute success to either luck or talent. The fact of the matter is most
people fear success and it is this fear alone that keeps many from trying.
(Or come up with your own logically disconnected reason, then continuing to
bash Luck and Talent. Be creative!)
Luck is merely riding out the averages. Persons
who seem to be lucky are, in fact, cruising for a bruising.
(Trite detected.) As they say in
Blade Runner “The candle that burns twice as bright, burns half as long.” Similarly talent usually
comes with  equal and proportional disadvantages. (Only in the Champions role playing game
wherein obtaining the power to fly entails contracting a fear of heights.)
When in doubt, just
go nutty:
People who seem to be lucky or talented secretly have a pact with Satan and will be
destroyed in the Lake of Fire, inevitably.
The fact is that neither luck nor talent actually got anyone anywhere, so it is best to
focus on what is actionable and universal. By following our simple rules you will attain

(
insert objective: instantaneous great big huge opulence) through the following:
Be the landmark.
Read that again. No, really.
As we mentioned in our utterly
nonsensical, but true, bit about
Assembling or Disassembling Reality,
everyone is out to assign everything
else a value based upon their
immediate needs. This is called
Parataxic. Now that we have mentioned
and defined this term, we will never
have a need for it again. Ha! Made you
look! Feel free to drop this term
whenever and wherever you like. Like
‘counterintuitive’ and ‘proactive’,  
parataxic makes you sound smart and
means about as much as ‘irregardless’
only without the encapsulated double
negative. And that, my children, is
victory.
By being the landmark, what we are not suggesting is that you escape the process of assigning
values to others in your space. Perish the thought. Instead, what we are suggesting, implying
and flat out saying is that you bushwhack the process by acting randomly but consistently. You
decide, at random, without any initial assessing process, that you will be either negative or
positive prior to the start of the encounter. This will drive people absolutely ape crap and ensure
that you will (1) survive the longest in a business or professional situation and (2) make people
beg for your favor, simply out of awe, because you are such inscrutable so and so.

For the most part, we will be using the business context. Business provides and an excellent set
of templates for all social situations. It is also where most self help texts are targeted. What we
say here goes doubly so for those contexts wherein your time is not measured in other people’s
money.

What works in business works for love and war, just as well. And if one of those three big things
isn’t one of your three big things, this reincarnation has failed. For the rest of us, being a force
of nature, one who rains upon the just and the unjust alike, is the wonder product which works
wonders. At first, you will blow hot and cold, randomly but consistently. Eventually, you will be the
force around which all revolves. We offer you nothing short of total global denomination, or at
the very least, highly amusing self involvement. What else is there? This brings us to Step One:
Abort Your Inner Child
As we demonstrated in the above comprehensive section on Luck and Talent, it is far better to
be a constant in a shifting world. (Not saying far better than ‘what’ is a part of the Oblique
Process, mentioned ahead.) Remember that your space in the universe is relative to those of
persons orbiting between landmarks. If you are a landmark, you will at the least have objects
orbiting around you. Your relative success or failure will then be dependant upon which types
of objects you choose to allow orbit.
Don’t get too hung up on
this choice concept.
Discounting the concepts of
Luck and Talent, there is
considerable virtue in
staying in one space and
always being one thing.
Remember, all of the
orbiting objects have the
attention span and memory
of fleas. You also do not
have to have much better
of an attention span, unless
you are the type who kisses
frogs. (Which we do not
suggest. Let the thing
become a prince on its own
dime.) Just remember if you
want something or do not
want something during a
specific orbital pass. That
way you can flash negative
or positive as the object
approaches.
The key to this process is never being needy. You need nothing. You seemingly have no
objective, ulterior or otherwise. Of course you do have objectives and needs, but you just
never seem to. What you need will inevitably come to you, simply by virtue of being an orbital
landmark. From a standing start, you never ask for advice and always look busy. If you can
master this step alone, you can guarantee being one of the last people to be laid off.
Mastering this portion of the step is essential.

You must think of your co-workers (or other space participants) only in terms of what they can
do for you. (For some of us, this comes quite naturally.) This does not require that you actually
have an objective, but rather that you can sort winners from losers. If you pick enough winners,
you can be opportunistic in picking your objectives. The quicker and more whimsically you
attack those posies which fall your way, the better. Doing so disguises any perception that you
have long term objectives and thus might be a threat to others. Not actually having long term
objectives is preferable, but not necessary. If you can simply stay in one place long enough,
opportunities will come your way.
Appearing to have an undue interest in
whatever your immediate role is will help you
greatly. This is covered in more detail in our
other steps. This is not a one step follows
the next procedure. In order to be effective,
you have to be active in all three steps to
the best of your ability. Over time, the steps
grow in their effectiveness, all the while not
requiring you to be anything more than
consistent in your application of them. In no
way are we asking you to ‘fake it until you
make it’. That’s what orbiters do. As a
landmark, all you are doing is paying
attention and being consistent. In the
beginning of a role, make sure that all you
talk is shop and then do it briefly.
In the work context: You have no friends. You have no pets. You have no hobbies or outside
interests. You appear at work without preamble and leave at the appointed time. You do not
talk about family matters. You do not go to lunch with co-workers, unless it is with a large
group. If you can, eat lunch at your desk. Avoid one on one encounters with co-workers
outside of the business context. To the extent you can pull this off will help establish your
Professional Pretext, or front, that you actually give a hoot. It does not require that you actually
care about any portion of what you are doing, however. In fact, actually caring about anything
could screw you up. Just attempting to do any of this, or at the least limiting any variance from
it, will greatly distinguish you in the eyes off all.
