You have a Box. You are not your Box. Neither are they their Box.
NOTE: This website is a Bubble in the Bubble Map of the free-to-play massively-multiplayer online-and-offline thoughtware-upgrade contexxt-shift personal-transformation game called StartOver.xyz, powered by Possibility Management. It is a doorway to experiments that upgrade your thoughtware so you can create more possibility. Your knowledge is what you think about. Your thoughtware is what you use to think with. When you change your thoughtware, you go through a liquid state as your mind reorganizes itself. Liquid states can bring up transformational feelings and emotions. Please read this website responsibly. By upgrading your thoughtware you build matrix to hold more consciousness. No one can do this for you. No one can stop you from doing it. Our theory is that when we collectively build one million more Matrix Points we will change the morphogenetic field of the human race for the better. Reading this whole website is worth 1 Matrix Point. Doing any of the experiments earns you additional Matrix Points. Please use Matrix Code BOXTECHN.00 to log your Matrix Points earned at this website on https://login.startover.xyz/. Thank you for playing full out!
The ‘Box’ is the complex assemblage of the thoughtware that we use to interact with the world. Our thoughtware is what we use to think with. Our thoughtware is our belief system, our assumptions, our conclusions, our stories, our thinking patterns, our assumptions and expectations, our decisions and so on. Other work would call it the Ego, our psychology, our character, our personality. In Possibility Management, we call that the Box. We are mostly not aware of our thoughtware. We have not been trained to think about what we are thinking with. Modern western education does not educate us in looking at what we look at the world with. Investigating our Box is using a magnifying glass to examine the glasses that we use to look at and get impressions from the world.
We create our Box as children. As children we come up with the best solution to survive when faced with a given problem. As it works, we integrate that particular response as our ‘normal’ way of being. The ego is created. Some children identify the best solution as being the nice girl/nice boy that always pleases their parents. Others realize that playing small, being invisible, disappearing is the best solution to face authority figures. Others again classify that being a rebellious child gives them some form of attention - better negative attention than no attention at all. Over the years of working with people we have come to recognize about eighteen standard Box defense strategies. All of them are effective. Please find the list at 18 Boxes Bubble (http://18boxes.mystrikingly.com/). The list is not intended to be systematic or all inclusive. The value of this list is reading through it to recognize which defense strategies your Box uses. You may also recognize a number of your friends in this list.
A bird’s eggshell is designed to protect the baby bird until it can stand on its own two feet. A chrysalis is designed to protect a caterpillar’s transformation into something that can fly. Likewise, the Box is designed to defend us until we are ready to shift from childhood to our life as a free and natural adult human being.
The transition from childhood to adulthood is intended to take place at around fifteen years of age. We are not structurally capable of taking responsibility before fifteen. But, tragically, our culture does not provide a rite of passage for us. If we do not go through the process that changes the purpose of our Box from its originally defensive and purely survival-based purpose to a mature, expansive, self-development, evolutionary purpose, then our Box, which once protected us, then becomes our prison.
If your Box is dedicated to defending itself, then the purpose of your actions will be to protect your positions, blame or attack others, compete for resources, justify yourself, regard yourself as “right” and others as “wrong,” feel resentment, and as a last resort destroy or isolate. These strategies are the foundation for creating ordinary gameworlds serving shadow principles. If you change the purpose of your Box from defending itself to expanding itself, then your actions will have a completely different quality. A Box dedicated to expanding itself directs your actions toward exploring new territory, going beyond restrictive limits, self-development, discovery, trying new things, learning, growth, welcoming surprises, experimenting, and so on. Reading a book such as this and practicing with the suggested experiments is a Box-expanding action.
Our Box long ago concluded that if it can survive, then we can survive. That ancient decision still holds dominance until we radically change the game we are playing. Our Box is extremely resilient, fast, clever, subtle, and justified in its self-defense. Without us making intelligent conscious efforts to create alternative options, our Box will minimize chances to play a different game and will control the way we show up in the world for the rest of our days. A defensive Box does let anyone get in closer to you than the limit of itself. It does not even let you go to the edge and explore what is beyond. If you attempt to move towards the edge, your Box screams “What are you doing? What are you doing? If you go there, we will die! Die! Do you hear me? Die! Go back inside! Now!” Without the possibility of traveling to the edge of yourself, new games are never revealed to you.

Expanding the box
Expanding your Box means to acquire real behavior possibilities that were not available before. Two methods have been discovered to effectively expand the Box, a push method and a pull method. The push method comes from Werner Heisenberg. The pull method comes from Santa Claus. We describe here the push method.
The push method
Werner Heisenberg (died 1976) was a world-class scientist who formulated many of the original mathematical models for quantum physics. The push method derives from what has come to be known as “The Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle.” In layman’s terminology, Heisenberg’s principle says that details of a situation cannot be known without interfering in the situation. In other words, the closer we look at something, the more we change it. This is a terrible consequence in quantum physics, but is fantastic for expanding the Box. The closer you investigate the structure, purpose and methodology of your Box, the more it unfolds into an expanding fluidity founded in clarity, love, possibility and evolution.
The pull method
Warning! According to the physics observer effect, which applies to the mechanics of the Box, the mere observation of a phenomenon inevitably changes that phenomenon. The mere observation of the Box automatically provokes the transformation of the Box. The transformation of the Box is called Liquid State.
Please read the Liquid State Bubble for context and experiments.
