Psychological DNA

 

v     The determinisms of the physical characteristics embedded in our calls have been unravelled. It is a landmark in biological science.

v     There is a subtle truth behind it which determines all one's behaviour precisely. Maybe we call it by a similar name, the Psychological DNA.

v     It may not be difficult to arrive at an exhaustive list of characteristics of man. Many of them will be

Caution alertness

Strength endurance energy will.

Foresight

Organisation

Equality

Patience

Sensitivity

Truthfulness

Idealism

Goodness

Intelligence

Cheerfulness

Dedication

Common Sense

Character behaviour manners Personality

Dynamism.

v     It will be right to go for an exhaustive list, to grade them as per 1 to 9 and select for all levels only terms of equal intensity and thus give it a classified form.

v     Science does not initially question 'of what use is it?' because the knowledge itself is rewarding. Finally, if such a system has any use, it is better to spell it out.

v     The Token Act I am mentioning demands the play of all one's characteristics, though in varying measures and reveals to oneself the measure of its right use, as without it, the result will not issue.

v     In doing an act and bringing it to fruition, one lays himself bare and identifies himself with the subtle personality of the act.

v     As an act is a miniature of the universe, ALL traits find play. The right intensity of each trait contributes to the result. A little excess spoils, a little shortage does not trigger the action.

v     As we assume the act has yielded result, it goes without saying that every one of the traits has found the right measure of play.

v     An acute intelligent observation is called for to detect the measure of play of each trait.

v     Successful results can issue for infinitely various combinations of these traits in infinitely varying persons.

v     "I always bring out the result and I am always cautious" says one. His measure of caution will vary from another's.

v     Here are two possibilities for the individual.

1.      To see his characteristics in play.

2.      To note their measure of combination with the act.

v     Even the first observation will raise his efficiency.

v     The measured study of the second will give him an enormous functional power over himself.

v     At a further stage, at least theoretically, it can give him the power to change the structure of his 'DNA'.

v     In this first article it will be too far fetched to discuss methods by which it can be generalised so that it may emerge as a scientific tool for anyone.

v     We can spell out the principle at least. The scale needed to measure the traits or their intensity will be a subtle psychological scale. To evolve that will be the pre-condition for such a study.

v     It is one thing a person measures himself on such a scale and it is another thing it becomes an impersonal scale.

v     Apart from the scope of an act, which I have been speaking of, it has this possibility too.
