CD 1 of 6 “AIDS v. Super Immunity, 1987”

Okay, shall we do another here? I will probably get very shaky talkin' to such a large crowd. I usually don't like to talk unless I have a hundred; then I can get lost in the crowd. But this subject is supposed to be about health, is that correct, sir?

(Super immunity.)

Super immunity, okay. So we will draw us some pictures. I like to make chalk talks as we go along. So one fundamental about health is very few people seem to hear of is “Adaptation.” That's an excellent sign of Life and one that always works; and when we cease to adapt, we’re no longer livin', period. And Adaptation is what goes on whenever we are stressed.

Now I'm going to put down here the things that we live in. [writes on the board] We live in an Environment. We always have an Inner Feeling. We always have some kind of Activity and we always have some Nutrition – believe it or not. We have those four. Now if those four are always in balance or the body constantly adapts to the state of those four – so we'll draw us a little seesaw board here. And over here, we'll put State of Being – now if all these over here should be anywheres near what we could call “optimum,” we don't get sick.

But if we strangle some of those out there, we're gonna get ill, period. Now what's called illness is really only adapting to a strained State of Being. So if the Environment is rather terrible and I think my Environment basically I make myself – I live in that which I radiate. So if I keep these three [Inner Feeling, Nutrition, Activity] goin' along pretty good, my Environment is pretty nice. Now there is obviously other things in the Environment. There is weather – I don't like to be cold, so I try to live where it's reasonably warm. I don't live in Minnesota. I tried that once and Wisconsin once and Canada once and I don't like that. But that's my personal.

Now my Inner Feeling is up to me, or I can turn it over to everybody under the sun. I can let all these other people determine my Inner Feeling; I choose not to. I got some very early training in it. I interned in a mental hospital and I learned that those people are not going to behave reasonably, so I expected them to be about as unreasonable as anything could be. You get some guy up out of bed and get him to get his shirt on and he reaches up to the collar and goes zip and all the buttons fly all over the place. Or you try to put some food in front of him and put a nice plate of food down and he reaches over and plops it on the floor. Well, now there's two things you can do about it. You can say that son of a “b” should have been reasonable and this is unreasonable and I'm gonna get all upset. Or you can laugh about it. So, when I'm around unreasonable people, I generally laugh a lot. I don't know anything else to do. [chuckles] So why not?

We have stated in the past that “the world is populated with infants, many of which have grown bodies and some sorta technical education.” I've also stated that “the world's populated with instinctive, domesticated creatures and I expect them to behave accordingly.” So, it can also in an Environment there is a certain number of micro-organisms and they do start growin' on us once in a while, especially if I've got these three, way down. Now if all of these are way up, I don't get very sick. I can pick up micro-organisms and our immune system is… handles em quite well. But if my Inner Feeling is in a constant turmoil and my Activity is excessive or less than excessive, less than usual, or the Nutrition is based on things that don't go. If you feed an animal somethin’ that it doesn't fit his natural state, he's gonna get sick. 

I one time was called by a man to come see his family. He had a wife and two children. He said they were very sick. I went, I looked at em and they looked like a state of malnutrition. So I take off to the kitchen. I'm pretty much at home in a kitchen, I like to cook. And all there was in that kitchen was white Karo Syrup and two loaves of Wonder Bread and some Oleo. So I said, “What have these people been eatin'?” He said, “I bring that in to em every week – plenty of it.“ He ate out. Well, I said, “The first thing we do is go to the grocery store,” – I didn't try to do anything to the horrible symptoms these people had. We went to the grocery store, got some food, and set cookin’. And I cooked the first meal and she evened up that maybe she felt like cookin' the next one in, but she was about passed goin'. So what was she doin'? She was adapting to a state of malnutrition; and I'm sure her Inner Feeling was pretty upset, wouldn't yours? And her Activity had to be zilch because she wasn't hardly able to walk across the room and the kids were in bed. So the State of Being was pretty pathetic. 

Now, in that case you wanna have Nutrition. Now most of the people I meet have – and the ones I talk to on the telephone all over the country – has all four of these far from optimum, far from optimum. Now the State of Being is going to be adapting to that “far state” out there until the Adaptation won't work anymore. And when you cease to adapt, you die.

Now in the meantime, you could probably have a jillion symptoms. Now the usual way of approachin’ a symptom is to use it to make a di-agno-sis. A diagnosis is a state of two not knowing. “Di” means “two.” “Agno” is “I don't know” and “osis” is “condition of.” So it's a condition of two not knowin'. The patient didn't know and went and told the doctor about it. He took the symptoms and put em into a fancy language called the technical language and played it back. So the person goes in and says “All my joints are stiff and every time I move em, they hurt and they're tender,” and after an appropriate few hundred dollar examination, you're told to have arthritis. Well, “arthro” means joint and “itis" means inflamed, an event that when the lady came in and said her joints was stiff, okay? 

Now the greatest obstruction to gettin' well is a diagnosis. And the second greatest obstruction to gettin' well – bein’, feelin' fine – is an unhappy domestic situation or work situation, okay? Did you ever have an unhappy domestic situation, dear?

(I probably did, I think.)

Huh? And how'd you feel?

(Not too good.)

Not too good.


Now I've had a lot of people that – a woman come into the office and she was sick and miserable and finally the old man died. Surprising how quick she was well and out on the street lookin’ for a boyfriend. And I have seen the same thing reversed. My dad was confined to a wheelchair and couldn't get up and my mother died and he was out runnin' around in a week. You know… Now both of em were nice lovely people, but they didn't particularly like each other. So did you ever notice when somebody don't like somebody else, they can't do a durn thing right? They're always bitched at.

So, when you have a diagnosis, that is suddenly… the symptom is not a normal adaptation to a stressful situation, it now is a “disease” and there's no such word in the medical dictionary incidentally – it's disease. There is dis - ease, not at ease. But then when you're not at ease, you're adapting. But soon as you name it a disease, you got problems then. Somethin’ fell out of the ceiling and bit you; and now it has to be cured. And I know of only one or two things that can be cured. A country ham can be cured and a side of bacon can be cured, but that's about the end of the show. The rest of it can't be. Corned beef's not even cured well, it's just there. And sometimes the cheese says on it it's been cured for six months. I heard a little boy say, “Wonder how long it was sick first?” (laughter) From the smell of it, it was dead. So that can go along, too.

But when you talk about cure, there isn't any – period. You may get well; but what's generally done is when you get these all [four stress factors] far from optimum, your State of Being is in a state of adaptation where much of the body is being used to adapt and nothing left for the everyday work and living. So, then some medication is poured on you to see if that will stop the adaptation – that's what it does, it slows the adaptation down. You take aspirin, you don't adapt for a while. You take morphine, you don't adapt for a while. Then your body finally gets up enough cover and it tries to adapt to the medication that was poured in.

Now you got more troubles than you had before. If you went to the doctor and he said, “You're adapting to some of these; now let's find out how many of em and how far from optimum you have,” then you would have to change your lifestyle – you'd get a change in lifestyle. [writes it on the board] But let's say you keep on the same lifestyle and you go take some medication and it stops the adaptation for a little while, okay? You're gonna feel better for a little bit, but then you're gonna have to adapt to the leftover mess that was in there plus the medication. So without change in a change in lifestyle, you're not gonna get along very well.

Now, of course that's the most unpopular thing you say to people. When you say, “You're gonna need to change your lifestyle,” they immediately bow their back cause “I want you to give me a pill that’ll make me well – I want you to give me a shot that’ll make me well. I don't wanna be bothered with having to be responsible for my own state of well-being.” But do you know anybody else that's responsible for your state of well-being, hmm? I can't eat for you. I can cook a beautiful meal and set it down in front and say, “Have dinner with me.” But if you don't eat, you'll starve, is that right? I can't eat for you. I can't drink a glass of water for you. I can't take exercise for you. I can't walk for you. I can't change or have your Inner Feeling for you, hmm? I can't do any worrying for you. I can only worry for myself. I can't be mad at anybody except for me or I can get over the whole thing. I can't have an Environment for anybody but me. So, obviously when the person wants to be well, they consider their lifestyle, okay? And that is essential. 

Now we run into all kinds of people that their Environment may be fantastic as far as all the physical Environment. They live in a beautiful house, they have fine automobiles to drive around, nice clothes to wear, and go on lovely vacations. You know any of those?

(A few.)

And… I don’t care for a few anymore than I know; but I have over the years known em. But I have also known those people to have their Inner Feeling in a royal mess and to have their Nutrition in a royal mess and they don't walk any further than have to. You know people who pride themselves on being able to park their car up near the front door of some place they're goin' in, hmm? I park as far away as I can get. That's the only time I walk – I have to then [chuckles] because I'm not into goin’ out and doing exercise for the sake of exercise. I think I try to move ever joint and ever muscle every day – once, that's enough. But when these are far away, then becomes the adaptation.

Now the Adaptation sets up a Vicious Cycle. Now we're gonna talk about this Vicious Cycle for a few minutes.  You can start anywheres on it, but I'll start at the top – a misconception. Basically, we have a total misconception about well-being. As long as we're not hurtin', we think we're doin' fine – even though we're goin' downhill by leaps and bounds. Until adaptation kicks in, we think we're doin' fine. Then there's immediately misconception that I've been attackted by a disease, which word is not in the medical dictionary. “I've been attackted by a disease.” I now have a diagnosis. I have cancer. I have measles. I have chicken pox or I have flu or I have…you name it. What's some of the goodies these days? Lupus is a good one now – that’ll really shake you up. Or you can have AIDS even, but you got a misconception.

A misconception will lead to a “False Feeling of Emergency.” [writes phrase on the board] Now I think everybody knows about a false feeling of emergency; that's when you're worried or anxious or upset and there's nothing after you at the moment except this disease that don't exist. So here comes along the false feeling of emergency.

Now there is such a thing as a true emergency. If a tiger leaps at you, you run up a tree or do somethin’ and if you don't succeed, you don’t have to worry about it very long, okay? If you see a big vehicle comin' at you down the road, you either get out of the way or get smashed – one of the two, it's over with real quick. But this goes on month after month, year after year it goes on – I have an unhappy place to work so the misconception is that those other people are responsible for my Inner Feeling.

Look, I can choose my Inner Feeling anywheres. We wrote a little book that said "Who's in Charge of My Inner Feeling?" Well, most people come in and tell me who made them mad, who upset them. Did you ever have anybody make you mad? Yeah.

(We worked on that a few times.)

Yeah, but they don't. I don't care. They can say anything. If somebody wants to say, “Robert, you're the craziest SOB ever come down the road.” I say, “Yes, I've prided myself on being the highest-grade crazy in the world.” Somebody says, “You're mean.” I say, “Yeah, I’m a high-grade mean.” So what, I'm willing to accept anything. I know there's no reason to defend myself against somebody else's opinion. I have nothing to defend. I feel all right with me. I like me pretty well, so if you don't like me, in my opinion, you have poor taste – and who's concerned with people with poor taste?

So, when I have a false feeling of emergency, the body mobilizes energy to fight or run. We can even feel it if we pay attention cause there's two things to do in an emergency – either fight or run, right? Now I have mobilized a tremendous amount of energy to fight or run, but being domesticated we're taught not to kill em – that's illegal, huh? And we mustn’t shoot em and it's not nice to call em dirty words. So we just hold it in. So it's mobilized and unreleased energy. Now that puts you in a real state of stress, okay? You're all dressed up and nowheres to go. Not a thing to do, so you have mobilized and unreleased energy, which is not a state for the human being to be in. So that goes on up to here and that requires adaptation to burn up this mobilized and unreleased energy you've got. 

Did you ever get upset and do nothin' about it – only fret within yourself?


Yep. Domesticated animals do that. Now, wild ones don't do that. They are just pure instinctive creatures. But I've also read in reliable studies that a domesticated creature, animal – you have cut its life span in over 50% by domesticatin' it, is that right? I know a lady who's tryin' to domesticate some hummingbirds and I told her get off of it! Let em alone, they're pretty out there doin' their number, you don't need to domesticate em because you'll shorten their life span, their natural life span by at least 50%. Dogs live about 50% as long as a wolf does – that's because they're domesticated.

Now when you domesticate somethin' you set up conflict. It wants to do its instinctive bit, but it's also domesticated to do this other bit. So, when you're mobilized to – when the adaptation begins here, first there's unusual cellular activity. In other words, life is using some group of cells in the body to do somethin' they ordinarily don't do in order to burn up this mobilized and unreleased energy. Now it's according to our make-up as to where it happens, but you have unusual cellular activity. In other words a group of cells begin to do something they ordinarily don't do. That always produces unusual sensation – always – because when the cells are doing what they're supposed to we don't even know they're there – unless we pinch em or do something – you don’t know they're there. 

So the unusual sensation comes along and there’s a big misconception about unusual sensation – everything we've ever been taught about it – is somethin' terrible, we should take a remedy right quick, we should run to the doctor, or what-have-you, which then gets more false feeling of emergency and more mobilized and unreleased energy. If you keep that up long enough, you go from this functional disorder to a pathological one. The pathological one is there is tissue cell alteration or breakdown – either the cell begins to do something that it ordinarily doesn't do or it breaks down. Now if you went out and did hard manual labor – God forbid, what would happen to your hands if you, say… you went out and started building a house and tried a hammer? What would happen to your skin?

(It’d change.)


(It'd change.)

It'll get calluses, wouldn't it? Now callus is a new growth, isn't it? Huh? But you know about that? Hmm? If you go sit in the sun or lay in a tannin' parlor, what happens to your skin?

(It changes.)

It turns brown, doesn't it? It adapts to that new circumstance. But you know about that. But you don't know about this other over here. So if you get a little group of cells that begin to multiply more rapidly than usual and grow a little larger and you noticed it, what would you do about it? You'd run to the doctor and they would take a little piece of it and tell you, you had cancer because the cell is larger than usual and multiplyin’ more rapidly. It's only doin' it to burn up this mobilized and unreleased energy. Now you've been around this cycle enough that now you've got the whole circle.

You started off with purely a functional disorder and then it turned into the others. I've known dear people who had a functional disorder for 12 years and finally they got enough stress built up – some of the tissue cell begin to break down or alter a bit. So they said, [speaks in a dramatic tone] “I knew there was somethin' wrong with me all the time.” They just finally found it out that the cells begin to break down.

Now we have the whole group except one. Now, good people do it this way. Now reprobates, hard-boiled folks, ones that's a little psychotic, a little neurotic, they adapt by having unusual behavior. Now good people do it this way – they sit there and hold it all in and they adapt. If you build up a little mobilized and unreleased energy, and a good reprobate – they go throw a binge anywheres from gettin' slightly drunk to wildly drunk to goin' out and killin' a bunch of people. We had one down here in Sunnydale the other day. He got rejected and he didn't feel good about bein' rejected – it's not a pleasant feeling – but so what? I can laugh at it. I've been rejected by better people than the last one that rejected me. So he got his gun and went over and killed seven people and injured a few more. Now he didn't get sick, he indulged in unusual behavior, okay? Now there is a lot of people who go get on drunks and they are called up various names – alcoholics, drug addicts, what-have-you – but all they're doin' is adapting with unusual behavior. Now I tell people it'll make less scars on your body to adapt with unusual behavior. It'll finally get you, but you last longer. 

Now real good people that begin to adapt this way – they get very ill and they get diagnoses and everybody feels sorry for em, sends em get well cards, sends em flowers, give em a lot of good attention, forgive all their [mumbles] and everything, so if you want to be treated nice, you adapt this way. If you wanna live a little longer but be a reprobate where everybody finds fault with you and looks down on you – might even put you in jail – you do it with unusual behavior.

Now you have that choice probably but most people don't have the choice because they've been conditioned or domesticated to be good. You know our folks all taught us to be good; not because they were so interested in us bein' good, but that wouldn't embarrass them. So the main thing they were lookin' at that we didn't embarrass them, is that right? Hmm? You didn't come home pregnant when you were 15, having embarrassed the family. It wasn't because they cared so much else about it, but they didn't wanna be embarrassed. So everybody's been taught to be good. But of course, there's certain people that didn't work on and they're called outlaws or psychotics or whatever they may be, because they refuse.

My dad raised saddle horses when I was a kid. He had about 15, 16 mares and a stallion. And every year he raised 15, 16 colts – 14 anyway, some of em wouldn't always do. And usually every year there was at least one of those horses you couldn't train and so they called it an outlaw. That's all. You couldn't domesticate it – it said I'm not gonna be some rich man's toy, have somebody ride around on my back. And it bowed its neck and it balked and it stomped and it would kick you and it would paw you to death or anything else. It would lean against a rope to practically break its neck, but it wouldn't give. So one wouldn't go. So people are much the same way. There's a few of em that don't submit to bein' domesticated.

So here we have where you can see all kinds of symptoms. Now what do you do? You can take all kinds of remedies and get more and more sick cause the more of em you put in here, the more you're gonna be toxic, the more your Inner Feeling's messed up, the more your Activity, the more your Nutrition cause it goes in there, it's gonna act like Nutrition, but it's not. So the State of Being goes downhill and we say the poor soul just died of cancer or they died of this or they died of that or whatever the case may be. 

Now if you start talkin' to em about changin' their lifestyle, they get a little upset. Now, I like to play another little trick. I do somethin' that some people call “healing.” I will see that they quit being sick today; but if they don't change their lifestyle, it lasts about as long as a frost in Hades. They're gonna get themselves sick again. So we tell them – now you will have to change this, this, and this if you wanna stay well, but they don't - they go right on. So as one of my professors in school said that, “Nobody wants to be really change their lifestyle or anything; what they want to do is to feel a bit better now so they can do the things that's been makin' them sick in the first place,” and I have to agree to that after umpteen years – that's about correct. 

So if you wanna be well, or you wanna work with anybody that wants to be well, try to give em a little bit of direction of how things work. Now how the human body works is the greatest mystery to the owners of em there is. And most of em don't know anything about how it works at all, hmm? Huh? They don't know how it works. You never were taught how it works. You never had any training in how it works. In other words, that's a deep, deep, dark secret. There's people supposed to take care of it and make you well when you mess it up, is that right? And never do they say, “You messed it up.” They say, “You were attackted by a disease. You are the victim of…” you name it, whatever the name somebody wants to lay on you. They say you're a victim of it. Nobody's a victim of it. We manage quite well to get it goin' and of course, ever effort is made to keep it. 

Now it doesn't matter what the diagnosis is. If you change your lifestyle and quit makin' yourself full of misery all the time so you're not mobilizin' and not releasin' the energy, but usin' it all the time, you won't need unusual cellular activity. You won't have a bunch of unusual sensation, and you won't have tissue cell alteration or breakdown. Now you can run into some nice little microorganisms and the body immediately goes to work to neutralize em – so to speak – throw em out, kill em, whatever the case may be and you will have a few symptoms. But if you know what's goin' on, you sit down and let it work. 

I used to tell kids that came in the office that – it was kinda like this. [draws a picture like he drew for kids] And that when somethin' didn't feel good, there was a bunch of little guys in there workin' to get rid of it. I told em to go lay down and get out of my way. “Don't eat anything, if they do I'm gonna throw it out of here or If you threw somethin in here that don't fit, I'm gonna throw it out,” – that these little men were workin'. Well, gradually those kids, being kids and not grown folks, they begin to see that a little bit. It wasn't too hard for the kids to see it. So they didn’t feel good, they go tell Mom, “The little men's workin', I'm goin in and lay down a while.” And they got all right, right quick because they said, “Hey, the men are workin' and they're makin' a noise,” like people building a building or anything; they're makin' noise.” They're hammerin', sawin', scrapin' out sewers, and what-have-you so they didn't do anything about it. And in a few minutes or a few hours the kid was all right.

So obviously we're gonna run into microorganisms – they're in the environment. Now when I was a kid back in the hills of Kentucky, the folks used the term that said, somebody had “lowered resistance.” Did you ever hear that term? Their resistance was down because they was out dissipatin', hmm? 

[End of CD 1]

CD 1 of 6 “AIDS v. Super Immunity, 1987”

...they had lowered resistance. Now today we wouldn't use the simple little old country term like that, we'd say “Acquired Immune Deficiency.” But everbody that ever got sick or died – I didn't, I won't say sick cause they run into some bug – but everyone of em that got themselves completely down in what you call chronic illness. They all have Acquired Immune Deficiency.  You don't need a bug. I read an article in the Wall Street Journal last night that a man was challengin' very wildly that there was any such thing as the HIV virus. He challenged it – hard.  Said there was no proof of it anywheres. And if it was, it never did make anybody sick. So I don't know. That's their argument. I'm not concerned. But if you have lowered resistance, huh? – you're gonna get sick. Now, your lowered resistance is because you're not radiating a very good environment. Your inner feeling is kind of shook up, anxious, worried or what-have-you. Your activity is less than it used to be and your nutrition is way off. Try eatin' at McDonald's everday and drinkin' hot dogs or eatin' hot dogs and hamburgers and French fries and goin' to 7-11 and get you a quickie and drink a coke, your resistance is gonna get down, right? And if you're dissippatin' all the time, your resistance is gonna get down. That about right? Okay? 

So if your resistance is down, you have Acquired Immune Deficiency. I didn't say you had AIDS, I said you had Acquired Immune Deficiency and you're going to have to have some pretty heavy adaptation and the nice part about adaptation is that when the body starts adaptin’ it produces a hormone called DOCA, D-O-C-A, and if you get DOCA you need to lay down. That's all there is to it. Somebody gave any one of us a little tiny shot of DOCA right now, we couldn't lay down enough. After you get laid down you feel like you're not laid down enough. It's still fussin'. So thank goodness it knocks em down and they have to go ____, then again you start loadin' in all kinds of toxic substances called remedies or treatments, hmm? And that'll do you in, cause you're already down. Now then we add some more onto it. So a person gets somethin' that somebody diagnoses as cancer which is unusual cellular activity, unusual sensation, tissue cell alteration or breakdown – some of both maybe – and then they give em some powerful stuff that would kill any one of us, huh? And then radiate ya; that'll kill you. And usually you can get rid of those people in three or four months, you know. I have two friends in the last year, one was a dentist and one was runnin' a business, and both of em got knocked out and were feelin' fine to begin with. But they went and got an examination and somebody found somethin' they could do and in two months both of em's dead. Now these were different dates, but in two months neither one of em lived. 

The dentist was dead in two months and the businessman was dead in two months. They couldn't stand that stuff, you know; there's no way could they tolerate it. Now people have been takin' drugs all their life can usually tolerate it a little longer than the ones who've never been. These guys were disgustingly healthy all their life, but they got themselves one down.  The businessman was workin' at work he was not used to doin' and resentin' every minute of it. The dentist was fussin' with the partner he had and really carryin' on about it because the partner wasn't doin' what he thought he ought to do and so forth. Now, had they changed their lifestyle both of em could be around, but they got a diagnosis. That scared em to death. That sets up the false feeling of emergency in no uncertain terms, built this fast and furious and required [pointing to drawing on the board] more of this. And then to add insult to injury, they poured a bunch of chemicals in that the human body doesn't tolerate very well; in fact, not at all. So that goes on.

Now let's have some discussion a minute. Made some noises here and talked about things. Let's have some comments from this large crowd, okay? Everybody… got so many people everybody ought to have a question, okay? Let's have one. Did I say anything that insulted your intelligence by any means? Huh? Having dealt with the ailing animal bodies for many years no matter what shape they are in, whether they got four legs on the ground or two, it doesn't make any difference; they all work about the same, okay? So we got a question, comment? Yeah?

(Um, the unusual behavior…)


(It seems to me it would be all right to allow that to a certain extent.)

Well, if you go in the bathroom and shut the door…

(Unintelligible mumbling)

Yeah? Somebody, say you get all ticked off, Judy. Somebody does somethin’ and you forget and just get all wound up about it, okay? Now if you pick up a gun and shoot him, they’d frown on it, right? 


That's a problem. If you go and hit him, he might be bigger, he or she might be bigger than you or studied judo and knock you into pieces. So how about goin' in the bathroom, takin' a wet towel and beatin' the hell out of the tub by naming it whoever that person is. And in a case like that you've used it up and you haven't made yourself into a psychotic mess out on the street. Okay, very few people will do that. I've talked to people about doin’ that and say, "That would be silly." They'd be silly, but it'd work, okay. So when do you find yourself all upset, yes, it's nice to do it, but all by yourself honey, okay? Don't get it on your friend, partner. He’s liable to knock you over. Okay? He may not tolerate it.


And you could go get on a binge and get drunk, or you could get you a bunch of drugs and throw a fit with it, or you could go shoot a few people and so on, but those are...

[man interrupts] (What about running 20 miles a day?)

… those are not sociably acceptable so we have to kind of go along with that little bit. But nobody can fuss about what you do in the bathroom with your wet towel. Okay? That, answer your question, Judy?

(If you want to verbalize it, go out, and holler or go out somewhere and just go scream.)

Yeah, if you want to verbalize it, go somewheres and scream and yell and holler and get a clown or a doll and set it up there and name it whoever that person is you're all upset with and do it and then decide how stupid it is to let anybody have charge of your inner state. I don't give anybody the authority to make me mad. If I'm gonna do it, I'm gonna do it all on my own and I don't like the way it feels to get all angry or upset or what-have-you. Okay? How about you? You got a question anywheres?

(No, because I think you presented it very clear. ­­I, I see that acceptance is a, um, having the keys presented that way makes it, makes it real clear.)

Ok, I'll try to make everything as clear as mud. Keep it that way if I possibly can, okay? Any comment, any question?

(Yep, I have one on controlling your environment.)


(I'm unfamiliar, I've heard that, I’ve heard the term, but it appears that there are a lot of, um, factors.)

Oh there's gobs of em.

(Beyond your control, that determines your environment.)

That's true. I have no control over what Judy's gonna say to me or anybody else in the world, but I do have charge of how I respond to it.


I have no control over what kind of weather we're gonna have today, but I can choose my response to it. I can have no control over whether they got the highway blocked down here and says take a 10-mile detour, but I can choose how I respond to it. I can't determine whether It’s gonna have a traffic jam that stops everything on the road, but I can choose my response to it. Not long ago I was in a traffic jam down in LA and I looked over that way and I looked over this way and guys were beatin' the steering wheel and “Gurrr!” I thought well, I'd rather be sittin' here as anywheres else so I just sit there. And watched things go on and I didn't choose to get upset. Now I could have, but I didn't choose to. So you don't have be in charge of everything in the environment, but you can choose your response to it. Is that correct?

(That's the inner feeling that you meant.)

Yeah, well that somethin’ that goes on down here. I could choose my response to what's goin' on in the environment. I don't have any choice as to whether I will run into a bunch of flu bugs or not, but I can choose my response. I can do like the little kid, I can lay down and let the little men work while they kill the flu bugs or I can get all upset, run to the doctor and get some kind of somethin' that won't do the flu any good. They usually give antibiotics and antibiotics have absolutely no effect on a virus. And most of the bugs now have all built an immunity because they multiply so rapidly, some of em's gonna live over it and pretty soon they say "I just love that penicillin" and it has no effect on the person, on that bug at all. We have all kinds of things now they say are penicillin resistant, antibiotic resistant. Nothin' works because they adapted, too. You know, they're living things and any living thing is going to adapt whether it’s a plant, a human, or a microorganism or what else. 

Now I can choose my response. I also said that my environment is basically that which I radiate. So I try to go around radiatin' having a good time all the time. People come in the office and say this feels nice here. Well, the office is just an ordinary commercial office, okay? But there is a good mood in there at all times. When I run a business, I tell everbody that works there, you have one responsibility here besides whatever your job is, you know. And that is to keep a good mood up. Now if you have a good mood, people like to come there. Now several years ago I was in the business of runnin' restaurants; and we put everbody on the notice that they had to maintain a good mood and contribute to a good mood, okay? 

We never put up a sign. We never run an ad. Our biggest restaurant was about 35 miles out in the country from the nearest town, off a side road, into a horse lot, and up on top of a hill in the middle of a horse lot. We had a big restaurant with no sign on it and we had no signs on the highway. We had no announcement that it was ever opened and still we had over a thousand dinners a night goin' through there, okay? Everybody said they just loved to come there. Well, the food was good. But so is a lot of other places, food was good, too. But nobody had the mood there, okay? Because every… 65 people worked there and all 65 of em were workin' to keep up a good mood.

We had a little rule: if you come to work and your mood is down, you go out back, put it in the trash container out there, and bring in a good mood. If you can't get it up, go home. We'll get along without you fine. I was capable of fillin' anybody's spot. I could be a waiter. I could be a cook. I could be a dishwasher, it didn't matter what. So if you're mood's down, go home. When your mood's good, come back. So without a good mood in a place everthing goes to hell in a hand basket, okay?


So you can maintain a good mood. Is that right? Nobody's in charge of my mood except me.

(Yeah, you can control that.)


(Yeah, you can control that.)

I can control that or I can let everbody else control it. A lot of people do. They let everbody control their mood except them. Now, we couldn't have that. One time in this big restaurant that is so far out in the country, some guy bit into some salad that had a screw in it. It fell out of the machine that chops things up. So he called the waitress over and said, “Here! This is what I got out of my mouth. Grrrh! I'm gonna sue the damn place!” And she said, "Oh for goodness sakes mister, don't go run tell anybody that you got a screw out of the coleslaw here, cause we'll never be able to take care of the crowd. Don't ever put on that we have free screws here!” So, you know, the man forgot all about it. He laughed and went on his way and that was the end of it. Had somebody tried to defend or do somethin' else, we could have had a lawsuit on our hands very easily. But when everbody's got a good mood, things run pretty good, okay?

So we can feel pretty good. Now we're all gonna adapt once in a while. We're gonna run into some micro-organisms. We're gonna run into a big sudden change in temperature. You're gonna get caught out in the sun without your shirt on some day and get a burn somewheres. You're gonna probably do some work and get some red stuff on your hand before it builds a callous, but if you keep it up, it builds a callous. So you're gonna have a little discomfort here and there in this world. That goes with the territory. This planet earth is a miserable sort of place to be if you expect to be non-disturbed all your life, but you're here to learn to understand how things work. So yeah, you're gonna have a little bit of disturbance here. So what I feel a little rough all day or half a day or three days – so what? But I can… that's a little better than killin’ myself, isn't it? And if I go all the usual routine at it, I'm deadening myself right away. And I kind of like it here. I tell people I'm better acquainted here than anywheres else I can think of at the moment. So I'd like to stick around and enjoy it and have a good time for a while, okay? All right, you got any other questions, comments? 

(Under this information, that's not information about your environment, that's a... )

That's the whole bit of how we view the world which we live in. So we say misinformation or misconception comes from having misinformation or a lack of information. So I think we're all very lacking in information about how the human being operates and we have a lot of misinformation about it. So, misconception comes from having a lack of information or having misinformation and we have gobs of both – very scientifically sound, okay? All right, does that help answer that one okay? All right, any other question, comment? Well, let's take a little break here for about five minutes so that Ron can change the buttons on there and we will… [aside] Just take that tape out.

[End of CD 2]

CD 3 of 6 “AIDS v. Super Immunity, 1987”

... our misconceptions a little bit. Okay, so we're talkin' about the source of em. So we're gonna draw a picture here, a picture of man and his functions. It doesn't look anything like him but that's the way it is. So this is the “Physical Body.” This is “Function.” You're always doin' somethin' as long as you're alive, is that right? You're sleepin', eatin' – can't say I'm doin' nothin' anytime; we're always doin' somethin'. And this is the “mental function” and here is “Life.” Now as long as Life is here this thing’s gonna function. When Life's not there it goes bye-bye. You can see a tree and you can tell whether there's any life left there or not, is that right? A very few seconds after life leaves, the leaves fall down, turns brown, dead old tree. You don't have to be an expert to determine whether an animal's alive or not even though you shot it full of sodium penathol, we can tell whether it's alive or not – when it quits. So what life is I shall not attempt to define because nobody knows. But we can certainly tell when it's present and when it's absent. Is that pretty well correct? As long as a person's alive, I like to touch em and hold their hand or whatever, but when it's not there I don't want to bother with it anymore. And it's just something to dispose of.

Now, when we live in an environment out here, whether of our makin’ or allowin’ other people to make it, we receive impressions from it all the time – never endin’ stream of em. And that impression is related to life and life does the appropriate thing through the physical body to bring about a function that is in accord with the way we saw it. Now if you should see a rubber snake and you don't like snakes too well, you'd go into a tizzy as though it were real.  

[break in tape and someone asks “Ok what do I do?”] and the lights were kerosene lamps and as the door left open there was somethin’ out there that seemed to me to be movin’ – it was a big monster and I know what it means to have the hair on the back of your neck stand up, okay? One of my brothers came out the door and left the door open and I could see it was an old stump where lightening had hit the tree and burned it down. So then I felt all right – I quit. So we had a misconception it was something dangerous for a minute and then it got over with it. But in the meantime I was charged up to fight or run – I'll assure you that, and I couldn't move.

So in this we will see how an instinctive creature starts off. So the first one we're gonna talk about is an instinctive being here. And when you're born, you're an instinctive creature. Period. The first instinct you have is to be non-disturbed. You've been floatin' around in the uterine world for a while and never been much disturbed there and all of a sudden here during this situation called birth, you got banged around, choked, spanked, feel cold, feel heat, what-have-you and so obviously the first instinctive thing is to regain the non-disturbed state. Now, pleasure or comfort and escape all pain. You call pain anything that you… any sensation you don't like, you call pain. Somebody else may like that sensation; they call it fun. I know a man who loves to get in a little rowboat and row out onto a lake when it's storming. The boat bounces and everything else. Everybody else’d be scared to death, but this jerk enjoys it. So he goes out there and just has a wonderful time. So he's not havin' pain. But if you or me were out there we'd probably be panicsville and very painful in one form or another.

So the first way that the instinctive creature wants to regain this non-disturbed state is to complain. Now the baby complains by crying. We complain with more sophisticated methods, but we still do it, is that right? How long has it been since you've complained about things, dear one?

(About five minutes.)

Okay. Now it's the last possible way to gain pleasure and comfort, but we keep on doin it, is that right, because it's instinctive to do it. A puppy does it, a pony does it, a squirrel does it, a skunk does it, everything else does it, so this is instinctive of all the things and especially all mammals we know about, huh? They're complaining.

Now the next thing that we find to do as we grow a little further is to stick up for our rights. Now I dont know that we have any rights. I think the whole thing’s been crossed up. I think if the Constitution of the United States had been written with saying “privileges” instead of “rights”, we'd have an entirely different world around us. Because did you arrive in this world very much like I did, Judy? Broke, helpless, toothless.


Hairless and more or less unwanted by the people who were assigned to be your slaves.

(I was wanted.)

Well, I imagine most of em just had an accident – we got here and they were a little upset. I've talked to a lot of women and they're very upset when they find they're pregnant. One or two of em are very happy about it out of 90 that said, "Can't you do anything about this?" short of an abortion. You know they want me to pull a little magic or somethin' on em to get em undone. But I imagine most of us arrived uninvited; a few of us were invited. Is that about right? 

(Well, you’d know more about that than me, but in my...)

You invited yours.

(Well, basically, in my life experience ___.)

Yeah, well all right. How about you? Huh?

(Yes, they were invited.)

Most of em were invited. But you know an awful lot of people who didn't invite em.

(Well, some people didn’t.)

So some didn't, but we'll put it either way. You're broke, helpless, toothless, and for some time had to have those slaves to wait on you so I don't see where we have any rights, but thank goodness for all the privileges I have. So they stick up for rights. And when you stick up for your rights, you get angry. That about right? Is that what you get angry over is because you had a right to be treated so-and-so and somebody didn't do it and you get angry because somebody gets in your way or what-have-you because you're not gettin' your rights. I don't know where we got the rights, but we'll assume that they were there.

Now, the folks put up with this instinctive behavior a little while and they decided to domesticate us – especially the time we're about two years old, is that right? Did you have to start domesticating yours? So the first thing you put out that they have to please you. Please them is what the baby has to come up with – please them. Now that's something they don't wanna do cause they'd rather do this over here [pointing to “stick up for rights” on board]; but of course the pressure is put on em and they do that. Now you can do that to a puppy or a horse or a cat, or a bird, that right? You can train em. Now that brings about conflict – that splits it. Now both sides is wantin' to be non-disturbed but this one says, “If you don't do like I tell you to, why, we'll spank you or we'll make you stand in a corner or we won't let you have your desert tonight or you'll have to go to bed,” or whatever it is, right? So “please them” becomes in conflict with this.

And they take us down and show us the policeman and the Sunday school teacher and the preacher and the priest and the jailhouse and all these other things and tell you that you have to believe and do as you're told by these authorities, is that correct? Believe and do as you're told by your authorities. [writes it on board] Now the authorities… and of course we don't want to do that, we want to stick up for our rights. We don't want to please them, we want to complain so now conflict is there. Conflict is that mobilized and unreleased energy goin' on, okay? So this is why it is said that any domesticated creature has its life span cut in at least 50%. So we have here an instinctive, domesticated creature. Is that all right, Judy, or not?


That's the way it is. Now of course… and I can't fit into all of this – nobody can live according to the law. And this is the law over here. And nobody can do it right on down the line – there's a lot of people tried. And so then we must self-improve – improve self, okay? Now how you gonna improve on a human being? Would you add another head or another arm or another leg or somethin'? Or would you put another eye on it somewheres? Or do you think they're pretty well done as they are?

(Another attitude.)

Huh? Well, their attitude, you're not gonna improve that because you're just tryin' to tell em “Please them.” You’re settin’ up more conflict. Attitude can be changed only by seeing what you're doin' and changin’ that noise a little bit.

Now, the next thing that we all find to settle things with is we find what to blame; that's the instinctive bit. Back on that side. That's survival. If you're out in the African belt and a lion steps on a thorn and you're in sight, he might attack you because he blames you for the pain – somethin'. Every time you have pain, you blame it on something. A big holler is, “Why?” And “why” questions have no answer – no matter what.

So we have then the domesticated, instinctive creature who is being in a state of conflict at all times and it has no information about this. He doesn't know he's a bundle of conflict. He is only trying to solve problems – about everybody you know is out there workin' to solve a problem. Is that right, Judy? You have people and you have to know how to get along with em. Ron, you get all sorts of em, huh? And they do weird things according to you and maybe they are weird, but whatever they are, you want to know how to straighten em out. That about right, Ron? You can't straighten em out. Only way you can straighten em out is bop em on the head and put em in a box. So they aren't gonna do anything then, but they frown on that, so you mustn't do that because that's over here. The authority says you can't do that, hmm?

So here is a person, they’ve been in a constant state of conflict and consequently they don't know what's going on, so those conflicts are the source of all misconceptions. Now if you straighten this down a little bit and say that you guess you don't want to live the rest of your life as a domesticated, instinctive creature, how about that, Judy? You want to live that way? There must be somethin' better than that, one way or another. We'll try to come up with it before we get through. Would you want to live as a domesticated, instinctive creature? Can you look at that and see that's what we've been doin' all of our lives? Huh? That's what we've been doin’. That's the way we work. Everybody I know is livin' in these. They got the conflict. Now some of em try to live only over here – they're called outlaws and they put them in jail and let em out after three years thinkin' that's gonna strighten em up, but they go right on with the same thing. They're tryin' to make em have this – that's the whole idea of punishment is to enforce this stuff. Now when you go to a psychotherapist – you a psychotherapist by any chance?

(No, I’m not.)

Thank goodness. When you go to a psychotherapist, if you're strong on this side, you're a – they say a fancy name for it, but let's just say you're – we'll call this “B” and this one “A”. So you're a strong “B”, they go to work to make you a strong “A”. They take that inhibition off – get rid of your inhibitions, is that right? Now if you come around and are strong here, you don't usually go to a psychotherapist – that's when you get to havin' binges of one sort or another and now we have things to straighten out binges. What's the binges tryin' to do? They’re tryin' to make you get back over here. Is that what you do to em? Hmm? Now, I think that's funny because they're both there. There's no understanding of the two of em. Everybody assumes you're one person, that right? Because you got one name. I'm workin' on a movie we're gonna make, put it on video tape, that's gonna have identical twins. One of em's gonna be playin’ this role and one's gonna be playin' this role and we're gonna watch em fight on this, on this thing, okay? You think that will be halfway interesting? You got identical twins –

(I think it has to a lot to do with the individual.)

Well, I know. But that's what we're gonna make it is one individual and we're puttin’ identical twins – one of em's representing “A” and one to represent “B” so that we can visualize it out fightin' – yes, it goes on in the individual. Did you ever feel guilty? 


That was ____ – that's because you did one of these and didn't do this, is that right? Have you ever felt resentful?


That's cause you did this and wished you'd a done that. Have you ever felt worthless? Felt inferior? That's because we were supposed to do this and we did a little of this. If we felt that we were incapable – that's when we couldn't decide between the two. So we got a little accuser up here – poor “I" – and he has to choose by goin' this way. Now if he chooses to go this way, this one is gonna make him feel guilty, right? And if he chooses to go this way, he's gonna feel sorry for himself cause he don't ever get to do what he wants to do, he just has to do what they want him to do all the time. Have you heard both come out of your mouth? Have you heard both come out of your mouth? Have you?


We all have, and so we've got this conflict and this is all so-called subconscious because all these were made before we had words. So then we only think in words so we didn't get it up. Now, if we get a picture of it you can stand there and look at it; that’s a mirror of all of us until we look at it long enough and say, "Phooey, I don't want to live that way – I don't want to live as a domesticated, instinctive creature and die like a dog." Cause that's where it's headed. That's what it's all about, hmm? That's where it's headed. I don't want to live my life as an instinctive creature and die like a dog – the dog goes through this same thing. Didn't you ever see a dog feel guilty because he slipped up once in a while, hmm? He's supposed to go get the paper off the porch and he went off to follow a dog in heat, so now he comes in with his tail between his legs and creepin' and so forth.

I had occasion one time to watch a dog – a little silky terrier. You know what a silky is? A tiny little feller. A woman bought one. She paid somethin' like a thousand dollars for it when it was a tiny puppy. And so she was gonna keep it as a stud dog and make gobs of money. But she was a nice old… whatever you want to call these people – maybe super conservative shall we say – and that little dog when he was a puppy would run jump up on her leg and go “ch-ch-ch-ch-ch.” And she’d grab the newspaper and she’d whack him so he shouldn't have that lewd behavior, okay? And she whacked him enough times that he finally quit it, okay? So then he gets to be a grown dog about a year old and some other lady has a nice little silky bitch and she's in heat and so they bring her over for a big stud fee and everything and they set this little dog with this little bitch down. And she runs at him and he goes wild. But everytime he starts to cover her, he yells and runs because it means he's gonna get hit for that behavior with a big old piece of newspaper. So this sweet lady with her revulsion about lewd behavior ruined her big investment because he could never serve as a stud dog. Cause every time he started to cover the female he yelped and run for cover. Wouldn't you? [chuckles] Right? So, she managed to destroy her big investment by this same thing right here. She implanted this – he had to please her and he had to do as the authority said, but his instinct was to go ahead and be a little dog, hmm? What do you think ________ could a done about that? 

(We used to get a lot of cases like that.)

You can't talk to them because they don't understand you. You can't build this. But I have lots of people that's in the same boat – both male and female. They have been scolded for havin' their natural instinct and threatened and everything else until they really can't perform anymore; and they're in a royal mess. And sometimes you can talk to them, but the dog, the poor little dog, you couldn't do that to. So here is where this thing on the Vicious Circle starts, is a big misconception that the whole purpose of living is to be non-disturbed because if we're gonna live on planet Earth, we're gonna get disturbed every now and then. Have you ever noticed that? Have you noticed that, hon? You're gonna get disturbed if you live on planet Earth. So obviously you can't have as your purpose to be non-disturbed. And none of the rest of these will work. They probably all worked until I was about two years old, but by then they were all set and I'm hooked with em and here you go on, in conflict all your days, hmm? And we don't need one of em.

So here sits the situation where you build up to start the Vicious Cycle. Now we're gonna tear this one down in a few minutes and build another one and then we're gonna have a Living Cycle, okay? Now, we're instinctive, domesticated creatures but we have a tremendous brain that got here by evolution – we’re just given that gift, so surely we can use it, okay? So we're gonna see how we can use the brain in a few minutes to eliminate all this conflict – how to eliminate the misconception and how we can put it together where livin' is quite serene and peaceful. Sure we're gonna have a little discomfort every now and then. And is there any questions on this one?

Does it look reasonable to you? Does it ring a bell that that's what I've been doin' [chuckling] all my life, huh? Nothin' wrong about it, nothin’ good about it except it wasn't the greatest thing for survival, but we didn't know what was goin' on because we could never have been able to see, that about right? Now I can see it. Now I can do somethin' about it. If I see what I keep stumpin' my toe on over in the dark, I can move the durn thing. But if I can't ever see it I'll just keep on stumpin' my toe ever night when I get up, okay? Any questions here. None? Clear as mud, huh? Judy? Looks great?

(Sounds reasonable.)

I don't know whether it's reasonable, but it's factual, okay? Can we see that that's what I've been doin'. That when I decided to go this way I felt guilty and when I went this way I felt sorry for myself, hmm? And about everything in my interpersonal relationships – I'm not talkin' about pickin' up a hammer or a saw and makin' some piece of wood into somethin' – but all my interpersonal relationships is very apt to run into havin' a certain amount of tension then. That about right, Judy? No matter how much you think of the person, your children or anybody else, they can get a certain amount of tension at it because I want em to go this way and they want to go that way – that about right with you, too? Okay? Okay, any questions at all? Okay, we'll knock it down, take it off here. [he erases the board]

All right, we will draw the same general picture again, but now we have looked at the situation that says, “I don't want to live the rest of my life as a domesticated and instinctive creature and die like a dog.” I don't want that. So I'm going to first thing hunt me up a new purpose. That's what it all revolves around is purpose, okay? So the purpose that I would choose for me – everybody else choose their own one, everbody makes their own, but at least we're gonna do it consciously – I chose a purpose a few years ago to make a contribution to Life and that's what I'm doin' right now – to me. I don't know whether anybody else thinks so or not, [chuckles] but that's what I think it is. I'm makin' a little contribution to Life. I'm tryin' to point out how things get tangled up, okay? How chaos starts in the world.

So I make a little contribution. Now, nobody can tell me what contribution to make or anything else. I put it down in one general term that I'll be what's a good guest to me. I'm a guest on planet Earth, I think, and so I will notice that I'm treated as a guest. I arrived here, found food, clothing, shelter, transportation, a couple of slaves to look after me and all those good things and I have interesting people to be around, interesting things to do. And I've always had food, clothing, shelter, and transportation. So the Host, which is Life, has treated me pretty well. So I think it would behoove me to be what to me is a good guest, okay? That'd make it simple enough – that's a little contribution. I like to cook so I could cook you a pretty meal and set it in front of you. I can't keep you fed forever, but I can cook you one meal. I can see confused people and I can sometimes talk to em and get em a little unconfused. I find miserable people and then sometimes they'll even laugh in a little bit. And I can do several other little things and then there's usually a way for me to earn a living. You don't earn a living by doing these things. You earn a living by workin' somethin' else.

So instead of being complainin’, having recognized that I have food, clothing, shelter, transportation, interesting things to do, interesting other people to associate with, some of em real close to me and etc., then I can be thankful instead of complainin’. Think you could do that any day of the week? I might as well be thankful. I'm thankful I have upset, miserable people come around. I can make a little contribution to em, you know? I don't have to sit and complain because they exist in the world. It's something to be thankful about. And if you're constantly thankful all the time, your inner mood, your inner feeling’s in a pretty good shape, isn't it? And I find I don't have much of the time not to be thankful. I really don't. If I have a pain or I'm uncomfortable I'm thankful the body's still adapting. I have noticed that when people get to the point where that Life principle up here says this isn't worth keepin' this form goin' anymore, they quit adapting. You ever notice that people was in a coma, they were practically died and everybody said they're in terrible shape and a few hours before they died, they just sit up and wanted to get up and go – they knew everybody and had a good time and everybody said, “They're gettin' a lot better!” Hell they are; they're dyin' because the adaptation quit and when the adaptation quits they’re not going to survive that many hours. That's all there is to it. They just don't gonna make it. They may get three days or they may make it a week, but they're on their way out. And if you know anything about it you don't go around and tell all these people well, he's dyin or she's dyin'. You say well, that's nice, you know – make cooing sounds. But you know good and well that demise is on the way very quickly because all adaptation quit. And when adaptation quits they feel fine for a little bit and they're gonna die in a little bit.

So instead of stickin’ up for my rights I recognize that I have a great number of privileges; and that I'm responsible for those privileges, okay? Now you've givin’ me the privilege to come up here and talk to this big crowd, right? But if I mishandled that thing and didn't use my own efforts to maintain that privilege, enhance it and get more, I'd get thrown out right quick and wouldn't get to come back, is that right? I have no right to be here; it's a privilege. That correct? I have no right to push people around on a highway. It's a privilege to get to drive on a highway so I try to drive a little careful. I don't care if somebody cuts in front of me – so what? They can shoot at you for doin' that. I don't care. Cut in front, I don't care. I'm gonna get there anyway. So somebody once in a while apologizes to me for keeping me waiting in a restaurant or somethin'. I tell em if I'd been in a hurry I'd a come earlier. So what, you know? So I have lots of privileges and I work every day to maintain those privileges, enhance em, and get more, okay?  

If I have a pretty lady that consents to go out with me, you go to dinner or somethin', I figure that was a privilege and I maintain that privilege by my efforts. And I might be in the business of enhancin' em and gainin' a few more on the way if that's all right. Okay, it may take a few days, but I can ___ it. And I'm not tryin' to please everybody by any means, cause I don't know how. Would you know how to please everbody? I haven't the foggiest, do you? But I'll tell you somethin' I can do. I can treat everyone – and that means all of em, nuts and all – I can treat everyone with simple good manners. I'll just abbreviate that – “simple good manners and consideration” [writes it on the board.] I consider they never did have a chance to see this picure. An awful lot of em, most of em didn't, okay? So I can treat em with simple good manners and consideration. If that's not enough they know what they can do. I'm totally unconcerned of being in the business of tryin' to please everbody. I don't like walkin' on eggshells, so I'm gonna treat em with simple good manners and consideration. Consideration says I know that whatever you're doin' with what little light you have, you feel that you're doing something that's right or proper or justifiable. So I have ___. Don't you feel that everthing you do is right, proper or justifiable? Maybe an hour later you don't, but while you're doin' it, is that right?   

(It ___.)

Well no matter what, you can't decide to do somethin' that you feel is wrong.
