Phase III: Active Data-base:

In this Phase, active participation is
essential for the learning and the
revisions of experience. Expertise-
building occurs in the active pursuit
of information update to replace
obsolescence and erase ignorance.
Unwillingness to being involved
actively to gain an experiential
grounding manifests itself as
"provocative wilfulness" which is
the antithesis to "Befriending
Creativity" and involving the body
as "doer". Instead of reaching out
to make oneself known and to
know others, what occurs is a
shrinking into oneself, seeking
protection and preservation in fear
of depletion. (Kosnik, Fuchs) A
fully developed Bodysphere,

activate the "Action-Response" in
the doing characterized by
"charity" or -love in the act of co-

Childhood Mastery Block (Phase I
and II), Phase III, will also be
faulty, weak, immature and a
conglomerate of behaviours will
display this powerlessness. The
shadow potential turns to false
power. False personal or group
power is in compitition for what is
perceived to be the power of the
other, to be coveted for oneself. In
essence this is an ironic turnaround
from True Power and the True
Source of Empowerment.

All things
Multiple persons

I grow
Or I'm gone
