Like everyday reality, the phase space cannot be used for certain purposes if it is not known how to move around and find necessary things. In a wakeful state, it is more or less known where something is located and how to reach it. In the phase the same assumptions cannot apply since phase mechanisms work by different principles.
The reason for addressing translocation and finding objects in the same chapter is because both techniques rely on the same mechanics that make the existence of these techniques possible. In other words, the same methods - with minor exceptions - can be applied to both translocation and finding.
After studying the techniques described in this chapter, a practitioner in the phase will be able to go to any location and find any object. The only limitations that exist are those of the imagination and desire; if these are unlimited, so are the possibilities.
Regarding translocation, attention should not be focused on methods for travelling through nearby spaces. For example, a practitioner may simply walk into an adjacent room, or out to the street via the corridor or through the window. These are natural, easy actions. A practitioner should instead concentrate attention on how to move to remote destinations that cannot be quickly reached by physical means.
It is important to mention the necessary safety procedures for translocation. Sometimes, due to a lack of experience, a practitioner may mistake the phase for reality, and reality may be mistaken for the phase. Mistaking the phase for reality implies no danger since a practitioner simply believes that an entry attempt was unsuccessful. However, if reality is mistaken for the phase, a practitioner may perform dangerous or even life-threatening actions. For example, after getting out of bed in a wakeful state, thinking that everything is happening in the phase, a beginner may approach a window and jump out of it, expecting to fly, as is customary in the phase. For this reason alone, shortcuts to flight should only be taken after gaining a level of experience that makes it possible to unambiguously distinguish the phase from a wakeful state.
If a glitch occurs when practicing translocation techniques (for example, landing in the wrong place), a practitioner should simply repeat the technique until the desired result is obtained. Either way, initial training is a must in order to make everything easier for you later on.
As far as object-finding techniques are concerned, these are used for both inanimate and animate objects. In other words, these techniques are equally effective for finding, for example, a person or a utensil. However, there are several techniques that are only suitable for finding living objects.
Basic property of the phase space
All methods for controlling the phase space stem from a primary law: the degree of changeability of the phase space is inversely proportionate to the depth of the phase and the stability of its objects. That is, the deeper and more stable the phase, the more difficult it is to perform something unusual in it because in a deep, stable phase, the laws of it begin to closely resemble those of the physical world.
All translocation and finding objects techniques are based on the knowledge of methods that bypass the primary law. The secret lies in the fact that not only phase depth affects the controllability of the phase, but so does phase stability, which in turn depends to a large extent on the number of sensations experienced in the phase. The techniques for translocation and finding objects are used when these experienced sensations are weakened through certain actions.
In other words, if a practitioner located in the phase holds a red pencil and examines it, tactile and visual perceptions are engaged, which under sharp agitation cause the object to exist in its complete form. However, as soon as the eyes are shut, the stability of pencil image weakens. In this situation, it will be enough for the practitioner (after sufficient training) to concentrate on believing that the pencil is dark-blue in order for it to appear dark blue after opening the eyes. This phenomenon occurs because the color of the pencil is no longer determined by perceptual areas of the brain and, therefore, it is possible to change it.
If a red pencil is placed on a table and the practitioner's eyes are shut, and there is concentration on a thought that the pencil is no longer on the table, then after opening the eyes, the practitioner will find that the pencil has disappeared. In essence, when the pencil is lying on the table and the practitioner's eyes are closed, and the pencil is not being held, no perception is being invested in the pencil, which the practitioner deletes using autosuggestion.
Using certain technique-related methods, a practitioner may cause the stability of the phase state to remain in flux using techniques that best suit the practitioner's individual personality.
