All that you have or aspire for is the product of cooperation with others. Your creation and joy in life is utterly dependent on your ability to muster the support of friends. This requires superlative communication skills drilled thoroughly with this manual.
Communication operates according to the Communication Formula, which consists of the following elements:
Cause, Distance, Effect, A Relayed Particle, Intention, Attention and Duplication.
Cause is the person initiating the communication, the point of origin. Beyond a certain Distance, there is a receipt point, Effect, where the Relayed Particle is received. Between Cause and Effect there must be Distance, since in this universe two people or objects cannot occupy the same space. The actual Communication is a physical Particle traveling from cause to effect, such as sound waves, noise, a note, a smartphone message, an email, or sometimes an object we send to the other person. It could also be a bullet to the head of an enemy we wish to destroy; or a bouquet of roses to our beloved.
Intention is a state of mind. When we confidently desire for something to happen, and we truly intend it, it does happen. The intention, not the physical particle such as words or paper, is the ‘carrier wave’ of the communication.
Cause has the Intention to relay the communication, and it must give its Attention to the person receiving it, the Effect. Effect has the Intention to receive the Communication and pays Attention to Cause. You have surely met people who, while speaking with you, touch your shoulder or grab your arm. They want to ensure that they still have your attention. Obviously, when Maggie whistles to her dog, she is Cause and the dog is Effect. When the dog barks back, it is now Cause and Maggie the Effect. The dog can express its joy as it wags its tail, this action is also Communication.
Communication results in Duplication. Duplication means that an exact copy of what emanated from Cause is created at Effect. A person’s opinion on what has been said to them is not duplication. Receiving the words exactly as spoken or receiving a printed letter and reading the words precisely as written, and then having at Receipt Point the exact same idea as that which originated at Cause without changing anything, this is duplication. Once the effect, who has received the communication duplicates it, they can now understand that communication or, if necessary, clarify it. For example: Dorothy asks Frankie, “Where is it?” Frankie duplicates the question but has no idea what Dorothy is talking about. He needs to clarify her communication and asks her, “Where is what, honey?” To which, she says, “My keys, darling, I can’t find my car keys.” Now the comm is duplicated and understood.
After Effect receives a communication from Cause, duplicates and understands it, they become the new Cause when giving an answer. The person who was Cause is now Effect when receiving the reply. When we converse with another person, the communication formula repeats itself over and over. Two people in conversation practice this Communication Formula as they constantly alternate the Cause and Effect roles.
An individual’s personal skills and their prospects of success are based on communication – the more a person is in communication with the surroundings, the more they will flourish and prosper.
