Speculation of the Beyond


Stephen F. Kaufman


speculations of the beyond

non-linear thinking

in and out of wormhole consciousness and cognizance

no past present future

non-dimensional realities

non-dimensional other realities

being inside the outside

abstract solidity generator

the cube

infinity is in the finite

causation is non-existent

substance of emanation

all emanation is no-thing

this and that have no need to be detached

transition is the finality of linear existence

not a physical morph

not a mental morph

not a spiritual morph

all done at one

every where as continuum

no beginning

no ending

no now

no start

no finish

no who

no what

not in you

not out you

Linear existence works as a time line with points of space of past, present, and future. Speculation of the future is predicated on known experiences. Due to the infinite varieties of possibility, it is impossible to determine any specific outcome for any set of circumstances regardless of desire or will.

Non-linear existence is not based on time or space to determine a specific outcome. It may or may not be controlled by previous experience at a current point in consciousness but it cannot be changed by accordant thinking.

A linear situation is defined by being at a point of cognition and future outcomes can be circumstantial only through past experience. Linear existence is hyperreal.

A non-linear situation, without the need to experience any known aspect outside of a particular desire, may manifest at will. Non-linear existence is hypothetical.

We relate to linearity because of sense cognizance, though in various philosophies it is considered illusion. Non-linearity can be thought of only through conjecture, hence the anomaly of wishful thinking. There is no empirical proof of non-linearity as a functional reality because it is not based on tangibility. Nonetheless, there is no conclusive proof that non-linearity existence does not exist. If we consider the possibility that linearity exists as an illusion, then there is no reason not to think in terms of functional and viable non-linearity. This takes into account the reality of time travel; the so-called wormhole. In my view, non-linearity thinking does exist excepting only that correct correlation of consciousness has not been discovered to date — maybe.

Psychic explorers, occultists, astral travelers, etal, confirm otherwise. Dream studies suggest that impressions received in sleep can be thought of as cognition of alternate dimensions and universes all simultaneously co-existing. The expression, “a dream come true” is evidence even if only in the mind of the dreamer. There are different types of dreams including day-dreaming, participatory dreaming; dreams where the dreamer awakens inside of the dream scenario, and predetermined dreams; dreams that are consciously constructed before the dreamer goes to bed.

Cybernetic research has gotten well beyond the limitations of human thought and in many instances, silicon-based entities along with human fantasy predict with astonishing credibility excellent prognostications of futuristic outcomes. It would be through quantum leaps of consciousness, NOT faith or beliefs, that defining outcomes as definable and determinable could be predictable as an aspect of genius. Allegedly, genius is an acknowledgeable fact, however, caution is a requisite not to base so-called genius on vainglorious wishful thinking and hoping: two abstract notions that restrict true freedom of expression. A tool for this is Self-Revealization Acceptance: the absolute manifestation of physical desire developed through a process of reality facilitation.

The closest we can come in our current limited intelligence is the development of advanced perceptions through meditation of the beyond. It remains to learn the parameters of infinity as a finite plane and use that knowledge until it becomes a workable form prior to manifesting anything real through the emanation of substance, through acceptance of other dimensions. This, then, is the essence of non-linear existence. It becomes required to know and realize that all things come from without, NOT from within and this includes thought on physical and spiritual planes. Internal thought manifests in outward constructs only upon outside contemplation and influence.

Thought comes from without. It comes from a place that is other than the self. That we are able to grasp an idea is evidence of this profound truth. As we convolute an idea, any idea, according to what we must consider our whim, we see the demonstration take place. However, because of whimsical thinking, things do not manifest in perfect realization. Care must be taken to not limit the expression of the ideal to the non-physical. We live in a material universe. The universe IS physical, including thought. In cognizant form, alternate universes and dimensions can be experienced, but not in the commonly thought of concepts of here and now. The unconceivable (sic) is experiential and is conclusive, as well, beyond the idea of conclusion. I seek that as a transformative reality.

Are Our Destinies Predetermined?

From the Teachings of Hanshi Kaufman

Student: Sensei, do you believe our destinies are predetermined?

Sensei: That goes back to the old fate and free will paradigm, yin and yang nonsense. I no longer allow myself to harass my brain into thinking on those levels and merely accept things, as they are with what little influence I think I can exert on personal outcomes. It makes no sense to question anything that has no definitive resolve. Whatever it is that directs and controls our destinies is aleatory; chance, that many people consider being luck or no-luck. Everything in the universe has already been created and our ‘minds’ intercept random ideas as thoughts occur for whatever reason. We just happen to stop a particular idea in our heads and then act or not act on it by letting it happen or passing on it. Lineage and matters of that sort are just extensions of vibrations that manifest into different scenarios.

Student: But I’ve had several déjà vu experiences in my life. Like I’ve already been somewhere or done something. Sometimes parts of my dreams become my reality. It could take days, weeks, months or years, but I know that some dreams literally become a part of my future. I’m not saying I can see the future, but on some level I do experience ‘visions’ of something that will happen eventually. So, sometimes when I’ve had a bad dream, I ponder the thought of it eventually manifesting itself into my life somewhere down the road. Even good dreams. Perhaps my subconscious already knows future decisions, the choices I will make.

Sensei: That is why it is best to remain a child (rescind your adulthood, but not your integrity, honor, blah, blah) and not pursue wisdom and other meaningless ideals. Merely, and yes, I mean merely, pursue what gives pleasure and maintain the responsibility of perfecting yourself through that one particular thing. Such as being the finest this or that you can conceive of being and let the Spirit of the Thing Itself express through you without you trying to tell it what to do. Things will ‘happen,’ or they won’t. See the evolution of your own existence and desires and don’t worry about karma, Freud, or any other meaningless bullshit. Let the wardens of other entrapments care for the allegedly insane, et al. It is also best to recognize situations, resolve them, and simply move on into your next self-imposed fantasy. However, never forget that you physically live in a material universe and that to deny yourself material comforts is stupid in an attempt to become ‘one’ with the universe. Enjoying yourself without guilt is true enlightenment.

An Answer to My Negative Critics

My two books, Musashi’s Book of Five Rings and Sun Tzu’s Art of War, are STILL best-selling versions worldwide after 22 years. There must be a reason. Despite the petty negative reviews on Amazon, which I ignore, the fact remains that what I have written and taught is without doubt the truest expression of the ideals given to all of us by Musashi and Sun Tzu. They have become de facto standards. This is, as well, corroborated and acknowledged by the highest ranking practitioners of the martial arts throughout the world. Questions about my rank and authority have been questioned since I began teaching nearly sixty (60) years ago, and guess what? I’m still here!

Newly Revised Edition of “The Sword in the Boardroom”

new sordroom cover

Now Available!

The Sword in the Boardroom –

Sun Tzu, Musashi, and Kaufman on “Winning for the Benefit of All Concerned”

Available at Amazon and Hanshi.com/books

Book Sample



Sun Tzu – It is wise to understand your personal motives for doing things and preventing haphazard approaches to your goal. Your beliefs should be written down for periodic review while continually rooting them into your higher mind. This gives you the ability to redefine them when deemed necessary to other ideas about the same thing being revealed from any source. Whether or not you agree or disagree with new ideas, your old ideas must be kept in order until they are consciously changed to better your condition. For example, whenever you prepare to talk to your captains, even though you can easily verbalize your desires, it is best to have a written plan to prevent any misunderstanding and they should all receive abbreviated copies of it. In this way, you may see what is coming with more control while developing and maintaining successful strategies throughout your campaigns. Additionally, you won’t lose sight of what is to be accomplished without having to resort to memory and possibly becoming lazy in your thinking.

Kaufman – The Determined should always write five variations of an idea and think about them deeply before taking any action. You must see those that are viable and those that are only the result of fantasy. It is important to know about things that exist and things that do not. Examining your personal motives will give you the added strength of truly knowing what you wish to accomplish. It is wise to do the same for yourself. By using your own words to express your feelings you will quickly see if you are saying the same thing in more than one way, thereby confusing the issue. In the following chart about your thoughts on perfection, do not use one-word answers. Sentences give full meaning to your thoughts and illuminate your thinking about what you feel and think an idea actually is as it pertains to your desires. When you use language properly, you can firmly express your exact intentions, especially to yourself. When you completely understand what you are telling yourself, it follows that others will as well. Whether or not they agree is not the issue: you have to know what you are talking about. List five ideas or concepts of perfection, as you know it. Do not use the words of Musashi, Sun Tzu, myself, or any of your colleagues. Use your own mind.

Musashi – Perfection is best described as what you see yourself doing and how you are doing it in relation to anything being done. It should not be based on what you have read in philosophy books about attainment. Defining what perfection means to you will lead you towards a newer understanding of yourself. After having listed five, delete the one that is the most meaningless: then the second, the third, and the fourth. What you are left with is the reality of perfection as it manifests in your life. Define your last statement to include all of the aspects you prefer perfection to be. Write this last definition on a separate piece of paper and use it as a constant reminder. This is a good exercise to include in every decision you contemplate. It eliminates any chance of missing your own point and confusing those that are under your command. Moreover, you must never permit subordinates to interpret your directives. They will think you are giving them license to do as they please and will execute your orders for their own convenience. You never want this to happen.

Further Studies in Self-Revealization Acceptance®


The Significance of Correct Language
Stephen F. Kaufman

Many attempts at personal explanation and definition do not result in attainment of an ideal because of improper or incorrect use of language. Oftentimes the words we use to define objectives cause us frustration and further misunderstandings that continue to lead us to ideas having little or nothing to do with our desire for the manifestation of an ideal. Until this idea changes on a conscious level, a continuous cycle of confusion remains in effect.
The Creative Power of the Universe delivers exactly what is desired based on our consciousness and desire to be the spirit of that desire. When what we desire does not manifest in our lives, we are thrust into a quandary of wonderment as to the why and wherefore we cannot experience our desire, based on what we tell ourselves or even demand of ourselves to have delivered unto us. In the eventual scheme of things, and when nothing happens according to our desire, it is very easy to become disheartened, frustrated, and even more self-destructive. Contemplation of the idea that we do not deserve our desire, or that it is simply something not meant to be is exacerbated by the continued misuse of the words we are choosing to proclaim our own destiny. This problem, readily correctable, calls for a mindset of knowing what you are, rather than who you are. Who you are is cosmic; what you are is finite. Thinking it would be nice to have something and then locking it in with sheer force of will causes excessive use of brain and emotion, destroying will power, and generally leads to severe anxiety and stress. It is much more functional to “be” something at the outset, rather than working toward “becoming” something.
A concerted effort is required to apply correctly the language to manifest the result of what one truly desires to experience. This is far more than just the constant thinking and meditation and renewed visualization of a desired outcome. You must accept yourself in possession of the thing itself as “it” and not something “on the way” to manifest as your attainment. You must absolutely and positively deny authority to anyone and anything that could cause you to sway from you own personal acceptance. You must become especially superficial, rather than detached toward the naysayers in your relations with others who would interfere with your acceptance of your own greatness, and you must have no guilt about doing it. Reserve emotional involvement and sincerity only for the experience you seek and for those who would foster your success of attainment.
The idea of superficiality, a form of deception, can and in many instances will take on the appearance of being psychically draining, especially if personal guilt complements your internal directive. To consider the mindset of superficiality as filled with lies and subterfuge is wrong. In reality the exact opposite is true. Erroneous thinking is what causes you to think that you truly do not deserve something if you employ deception to attain it. It is also essential to redefine your motives for success with a further definition mandated by the self to overcome any fear of success. As a result, outcomes brought about by this mindset resolve into a self-revealization acceptance of having your cake and eating it too, and there is nothing wrong with that.
You must learn to define and accept yourself as the experience and not as something that you merely do. The words you use in correct and proper form define yourself to you. You must be cognizant of tense: past, present, or future. You must also maintain an alertness to prevent you from becoming stagnant by contemplation of developing an iron will. Iron wills are generally unbendable and do not permit you to make changes in personal consciousness when required. As well, iron rusts and becomes unusable.
To develop the above ideas into a functional and experiential format, create the environment that generates you desired outcome by proper usage of the words needed as the exact desire you want to experience as the Spirit of the Thing Itself. This takes the form of a Self-Revealization Acceptance and addresses the parameters of acceptance that will not divert you from your divine right to live in joy and freedom. Disavow the authority of time and space.
Do not think in terms of eventuality. Eventuality, by its very essence, suggests something that will come about in the future. Immediacy is the present. By your focus on the “now,” past experiences may have residual effect but are essentially nullified without any further authority in your life. Do not dwell on the past.
Here are three choices in the determination of any healing condition: “I am healed!” “I am healing!” “I will be healed!” Your choice should be evident as to what you want to experience, based on your psychic perspective and keeping in mind the disavowal of time and space. Regardless of choice, do not permit any notion to coerce you into thinking it is based on the concept of believing in something. Belief can be debilitating. Experience is, rather, an acceptance of fact in the immediate.
Your ability to determine completeness is based on the amount of consideration you put into your acceptance of an experience as a state of what you “be.” Not “being,” not “becoming.” The grammar is correct. You live the experience as is.
Shakespeare’s “to be or not to be” is succinct. It is not “to become or not to become,” It is not “being” or “becoming.” It is specific and direct, without any form of intellectual distinction. It is not based on belief. It is based on statement of fact.
This Self-Revealization Acceptance is for the development of correct language to be used in self-definition of a desired outcome.

By the power of my own words, and myself as the true Spirit of the Thing Itself, I define myself in the immediate now. I maintain an attitude of present accomplishment and do not permit incorrect assumptions to guide me back to negative conditions or to future hopes or wishes. By my conscious choice, the words I need are revealed to me, and I carefully select the correct words to define my ideal because of what I desire to be and not who I think I am. I live what I desire to be in the immediate present, knowing that whatever is needed to maintain this new perspective of my own self is revealed immediately for the enjoyment of living my life by my divine right to live in joy and freedom. I accept these words as true and experience my desire without danger or delay for my true desire to be me. I thank the Creative Power of the Universe for the ability to create my own perception of what I am and by knowing who I am.

The Nature of Weapons and the Main Objective in High Power Negotiations

Sword in the BoardroomThe Nature of Weapons and the Main Objective

An excerpt from The Sword in the Boardroom –  A synthesis of the teachings of Musashi, Sun Tzu, and Hanshi Kaufman, as it relates to business strategy.

Kaufman – To properly negotiate, you must thoroughly understand the nature of your weapons, whether they be mechanical devices or intellectual concepts as they relate to the main objective. This knowledge will ensure success by their proper use. If you choose a new device, and by knowing in your heart the nature of your choice, you will be empowered to win. Being aware of your mission as an extension of your soul helps you in that you leave nothing to chance to the degree you are functional. It is also important to know the weaknesses of your weapons and be able to turn them to your advantage. It is easy to turn a negative into a positive if you know the parameters of the situation. It is important to consider this attitude.

Sun Tzu – When you think in terms of what being unprepared can cost, you will save yourself unnecessary annoyance and inconvenience for having overlooked a basic need. This basic need is always more than money and time, and not acknowledging it will permit reinforcement of the same thing to happen again. It is essential to plan and attack with full conviction letting the natural course of events develop.

Musashi – Adequate preparation will help you remain calm regardless of circumstance. Meditate on being calm and poised at all times. It will serve you well when applying your skills to intense situations. Do not become confused with techniques contrived from arrogance. Eventually, they will fail under pressure. Keep away from techniques that do not fit the situation. Do not use a soup spoon to eat fish.


What would have happened if Sun Tzu, Musashi, and Kaufman met and conversed on the art of negotiation in high-power deal making and enterprise control? The Sword in the Boardroom talks about all of their ideas, clearly and with functionality for today’s world.
