At basic, the being is not truly located in space. But he thinks that he is and he thinks that he must only operate from the place where he believes himself to be located.
Operating in a position, and placing matter and energy in that position to identify himself and establish his ownership, he can now be hit in that position. Eventually the position is smashed and he sets up a new position to operate from.
Eventually his history consists of abandoning locations and leaving stuff behind. And this weakens him, because his ability to have and generate space is monitored by his ability to reach locations.
This exists at two levels. There is the physical universe, where he withdraws from painful or unpleasant locations and gradually contracts until he can no longer operate outside of a body. And then there is his own “universe”, his own “mental” matter, energy, space, and time. But it is not really “mental” but simply non-physical, his own creations rather than the shared creations of the physical universe.
He generally operates from a fixed location in his own universe and has the “controls” for his machinery located there, so to speak.
But, just as he abandons locations in the physical universe, he abandons locations in his own universe as well and shifts his operating point because of things such as failure. This leaves old “mental” machinery out of control.
At this late stage in his existence, the being has agreed with the physical universe for so long that his operations in the different universes will track together.
An old metaphysical idea (attributed to Hermes, the mythological man who became a Greek god) is “as above, so below” meaning that the physical and spiritual planes interrelate and reflect each other.
On these processes, one runs whatever comes up or seems to feel right. The locations can be physical or non-physical or in other universes or planes of existence or in your own mocked up space.
As you stop flinching from occupying locations, various things may come back under your control. For now, just do this lightly and get whatever you can out of it. This can be taken much further on subsequent passes through this book.
30.1 Safe Locations
On each process, spot many locations, and allow strange and irrational ones to come up as needed.
30.1.1 Spot places where you would be safe
30.1.2 Spot places where a parent or guardian would be safe
30.1.3 Spot places where children would be safe
30.1.4 Spot places where a mate or companion would be safe
30.1.5 Spot places where a teacher or guide would be safe

30.1.10 Spot places where energy would be safe
30.1.11 Spot places where ideas would be safe
30.1.12 Spot places where aesthetics would be safe
30.1.13 Spot places where spirits would be safe
30.1.14 Spot places where it would be safe to keep a god
30.2 Communicating With Bodies
Start with physical locations, but try to work up to locations in “your own space” from which you communicate to the body.
30.2.1 From where could you communicate to a hand
30.2.2 From where could you communicate to a foot
30.2.3 From where could you communicate to a stomach
30.2.4 From where could you communicate to sexual organs
30.2.5 From where could you communicate to a head
30.2.6 From where could you communicate to eyes
30.2.7 From where could you communicate to ears

Note that this can be used as an assist on a body part that is in pain or giving you trouble by substituting the body part in the command.
30.3.1 From where could you communicate to a loved one
30.3.2 From where could you communicate to an authority figure
30.3.3 From where could you communicate to an angry person

30.3.1 From where could you communicate to a god
30.4.1 From where could you express love
30.4.2 From where could you express hate
30.4.3 From where could you feel sympathy
30.4.4 From where could you feel regret
30.4.5 From where could you feel triumph
30.4.6 From where could you feel contentment and serenity
Run alternating (a few commands of each, back and forth)
a) spot some places you’re willing to be
b) spot some places you’re willing to not be
As used here, the word “mockup” is meant to refer to the entire span of activities from lightly visualizing something to really creating it in the physical universe.
30.6.1 From where could you mockup a picture
30.6.2 From where could you mockup an emotion

30.6.6 From where could you mockup a feeling of pain
30.6.7 From where could you mockup a reactive mind
30.7 More on Creation
Just do the best you can on these. If it is too difficult, then get it on the second pass through the book.
