In the tutorial on “Consciousness,” we listed the three parameters by which consciousness can be measured: frequency, duration, and depth. In the tutorial on “The Many “I”s,” we studied our multiplicity, and created external shocks to remind us to Be, in effect increasing frequency. In the tutorial on “Self-Observation,” we added the element of observing ourselves to each moment we remembered to “Be,” in effect adding depth. In this tutorial, we will add duration. We will attempt to prolong consciousness by focusing on a small unit of time and increasing the frequency in it so much that the many sparks unite into a single flame. We will draw from the Hindu myth of the Churning of the Milky Ocean as a description of how duration can be attained by pulling against habit. And we will set specific aims to pull against the habits we observed last week.
