Normal States, Altered States Part 11 and their Governances – a Review2008 of the Basics

by Dennis K. Chong MD & Jennifer K. Smith Chong

Neuro-Semantic Programming, NSP, proposed that the form of the tuple depended on the manner of operation by the governances that we use to drive our thinking, speaking and our way of being in any given context. These governances are the semantic paradigms or blueprints that we use to understand ourselves, others, things, and situations. They include our Race, Family, Language, Religion, Culture, Politics Politic, Social System, Myths, Traditions and NSP designated any given context as a space/time intersection, e.g. s/t1 s/t2, s/t3, s/t4 . . . s/tn. As a result, you could have s/t1 . . . s/t1+N. Everything is language or more accurately the language structures (our red inking) of the language. Fritzof Capra: Web of Life, A New Scientific Understanding of Living Systems, Anchor Books, Doubleday, 1996, page 288.

There is a critical and significant distinction between the words that you hear articulated by a person and the embedded language structures he uses.

The governances are mediated by the linguistic structures of any philosophical-logical system. In turn, all metamentations and analogical operations are driven by linguistic structures. Thus, if you hear a person scream at another in an angry tone: Dam it! Can't you ever be on time?

The linguistic structure is either SHOULD or MUST as in: People SHOULD be on time. People MUST be punctual!

There are three classes of paradigms, General, Specific and Meta.

We use these classes of paradigms or more specifically their linguistic structures to drive our thinking and being. They are aggregated together as a unity known as the Hierarchy of Paradigms, HOPs.

The General Paradigms are those shared by a group of people and can be the basis for the existence of the group. People with different General Paradigms will inevitably entail some problems of misunderstanding, misconceptions, fear and anger.

The governances are complex and constitute our operating system. Our governances work continuously and out of our conscious awareness. Therefore, we automatically and effortlessly unfold to any context. If you are on a cruise ship with a vodka in one hand you will be one way, if you were at a diplomatic reception given by the President in the White House you would be another way. If something happens to change the context your governances will determine a new subjective state for you.

The aggregate of all the governances in the form of the HOPs underpin this truth that: Every human being is an uncharted universe of utter wonder and complexity.

Once we learn a persons Hops, after guiding them into a trance, it will be possible to shift them from: 1. one s/t to another < s/tn+70 . . . . s/t n+90 . . . . s/tn+99 . . . . > in an elegant manner.

The Principle of Overlap I that was originally enunciated in the field of NLP accomplishes this. We index it as Principle of Overlap I because Neuro-Semantic Programming a Principle of Overlap II.

Are you an Alcoholic?

In our culture alcohol consumption has often been synonymous with being socially accepted. Somehow we have linked the ingestion of these liquids, which everyone knows contains toxic substances, to our desire to be socially connected. It has always been the baby boomers version of Facebook and Twitter. In fact, decades ago while serving as a young Army officer, it would have been considered an insult not to share a few “cold ones” with the men as a form of celebration. I’m not saying the Generation X and Y’ers are immune to becoming alcoholics. It seems to be a problem that transcends...

Accelerating Healing by Improving your Somatic Intelligence

Can the use of suggestion and imagination improve physiological healing? Controversial studies at the Harvard Medical School have left the allopathic medical community scratching their collective heads. Two separate research projects conducted by a team led by psychologist Carol Ginandes, PhD, indicated that a significant number of patients who combined guided imagery hypnosis and traditional allopathic care tended to heal significantly faster than those who followed only an allopathic regimen. Their findings mirrored similar research involving improving the immune system of sufferers of...

Alcoholism and Recovery

If you are the point of your life when you finally admit that you are an alcoholic, you are ready to begin the journey toward recovery. This addiction is nothing new. Unfortunately it is rather popular considering there is an estimated 140 million alcohol addicts in the world. So, there has been a considerable amount of thought and experience when it comes to treating alcoholism and helping a person stay sober for a very long time. In fact, over the years I have met numerous people who have been successful and not touched another drink for years – if ever again. Treatment options vary....
