"The core of the Enlightenment Intensive is contained in the Enlightenment Technique. Understanding this technique makes it possible to conduct an Enlightenment Intensive properly.
"It seemed to me that the age-old technique of reflecting on "Who am I?" was a very good one. But it was slow. I wondered what could be done to speed it up. I had years of experience in working on communication techniques, learning how people could communicate better with each other, especially on a one-to-one basis. For years I had worked with the dyad format and investigated its various aspects and I had made some fundamental observations. I OBSERVED THAT THE MIND IS GENERATED WHEN SOMETHING IS NOT COMMUNICATED BETWEEN INDIVIDUALS. THAT IS A CORE PRINCIPLE. (editors emphasis) The mind is generated when something is not communicated between individuals. For example, if I say something in this talk and you don't understand it, then we will have contributed to the mind and put more into it because communication will not have successfully taken place. If, on the other hand, you understood it, then we have successfully communicated and it is not stored in the mind. When something is completely received, it leaves the realm of the mind and enters the realm of knowingness. This is another important principle. The Enlightenment Technique is partially built around these observations and fundamental principles."
