That‘s just the point. This is about Framing. It also seems to be the point of Q.
For you, becoming an Emperor may be ‘one specific goal’. For someone else, ‘Becoming an Emperor’ may be framed, (and hence, perceived), as 5 different goals.
For yet another person, becoming an Emperor of Great Wealth may be framed as one specific goal. Or they may be precisely in the process of building an Empire of Intellectual Mastery and they may see that as ‘one specific goal’. For that person, Emperor and Quantum Limitless may be framed as aspects of one specific goal or one specific life-process. For that person, Emperor and Quantum Limitless, while dense, could arguably be conceived as ‘one thing’.
I think it’s not just about willpower. I think it’s also about one’s naturally developed frames of perceiving one’s goals and one’s life (and one’s aspirations).
In my mind, what Q will do is to enhance the user’s capacity to select subliminal programs that align organically with his/her personal aspirational frames. In the past, by necessity, we have worked within the aspirational frameworks conceptualized by Saint and Fire. That has actually worked quite well since the two of them have some pretty inspiring aspirations (and they’ve also built a community of discussion to help inform the creative development process).
But a central value of this company seems always to have been ‘empowering and facilitating individuals’ development within their own frames of meaning and priority’. As a result of holding this vision, they’ve innovated further in order to do it more effectively.
It’s similar to attending a school for the gifted in which sufficient student motivation is assumed and therefore the practice is to allow students to set their own curriculums and goals. In that kind of school, we realize, ‘oh, 10th grade (or secondary school 1, or Form 5, etc.,) does not necessarily have to contain the exact same subjects for every student.‘. The great linguist and political thinker Noam Chomsky describes having attended a school like that In his youth.
So, my basic point is that the way a person frames goals and plans is not some objectively standardizable thing. There can and will be a great deal of variety based on factors such as personality, past experiences, social context, and so on.
For a person who has grown up in a family and community of academics and intellectuals and aspires to achieve in that sphere, building a life Empire and being intellectually prodigious may be one and the same goal. One specific goal.
For a person who has always been comfortable thinking independently and living a non-conformist lifestyle, but who has not been skillfully oriented to finance and wealth, Emperor and Ecstasy of Gold may be part of the same goal. One specific goal.
And so on and so on.
