Early in your impressionable childhood, an intense emotional event or series of events occurred which had a significant impact on you. Perhaps you can not recall it to mind, nevertheless it happened. In that moment, you passed judgment on the situation as an interpretation of life. You formed an opinion as to “what life was all about” and how to live it.
This was the birth of the “Real You” and “true inner self”. This “Life Theme” provided you with a very personalized belief system from which you derive all meaning, purpose, understanding and motivation. From this moment on you would spend the rest of your life validating it as the “one and only belief system” worthy of any recognition.
Just as your physical brain is divided into two hemispheres that work synergistically together, there also exist two distinct sides of your mind: An Authentic and Synthetic Identity.
Your Authentic Identity is the moral stand you take regarding what you feel is “Right and Wrong”. It provides you with stability and structure in “being” and is evident by the commitments you have made in your life. This Authentic Side of your identity is the unchanging “Real You” which has but one single purpose: To express your existence to the world. In essence it states: “I exist, I am unique, I matter and I make a difference.”
To achieve this authentic declaration to the world, your Life Theme employs another facet of your overall identity called the Synthetic Identity. It was selected by you as a channel or medium for you to express just how you should and should not act or behave in the world.
Your Synthetic Side is “synthetic” (not in a fake or artificial sense) in the sense that it is a synthesis or the drawing together of all physical possibilities available to you for expression.
This is the moral stand you take regarding life as to what is “Good and Bad”. It is your social expression of “doing”. Your Synthetic side is the ever-changing, “Flexible You” and is an extension of your stable Authentic Sides expression.
This is what attracts others to you and is a cause for establishing personal and business relationships. It is also responsible for your emotional fulfillment and moments of joy in your life. It is this Synthetic side of your identity that helps you to meet all the challenges you face in an ever-changing, and demanding world.
These two sides of your identity work synergistically together and are responsible for all the successes in your life. They provide the reasons for the way you think, the opinions and beliefs you hold, the way you behave, your sense of style, even what causes you to be happy, angry or sad.
Knowledge and understanding of your particular Life Theme with its Authentic and Synthetic sides is vital if you desire to make any real improvement and progress in your life and really sustain it.
This advanced knowledge and methodology can not be found anywhere else other than through Authentic Systems. It is the culmination of 30 years of extensive research, theory and practical, real world application.
This revolutionary approach to understanding your true identity is substantiated by over 550 academically recognized books representing over 1000 experts in their respective fields, such as; psychology, epistemology, ethics, morality, linguistics, sociology, symbology, neuropsychology, phenomenology, existentialism, cognitive neuroscience, quantum psychology, psychophysiology and philosophy.
