I want to devote a separate lesson to discussing tenpower thereby giving it the importance it deserves.

If these lessons were just about theory, tenpower could be left out, but it’s really a training program about action. You don’t just want to know about cvs2bvs, you also want to be able to DO it.

Practice, Repetition, Rehearsal

It was revealed to me during my army training lessons, in the late ’60s, when I was a 20-year-old national serviceman draftee, how amazingly effective was the strategy of REPETITION.

Army instructors demonstrated its power by always having us use practise, repetition and rehearsals.

I remember thinking it odd, at the time, that an ambush was actually rehearsed in detail in the field before being laid that night. But why not? Ambushing is a skill and anything that is a skill can be dramatically improved with repetition and practice.

A pattern is something that is repeated more often than randomness or chaos. The architecture of a pattern is repetition. That’s why in a patterning-system like the human brain system, repetition is the most powerful learning strategy you can use.

That’s also why you’ll notice a great deal of repetition in this training. It’s not because I’ve forgotten that I’ve already discussed something with you. It’s to help build patterns in your brain so it becomes easier  for you to remember and use the software.


All this is critical when acquiring new skills. And, repeating things ten times is an excellent way to exploit tenpower.

No matter how much latent talent an individual may have, you don’t get to dance like this unless you’re willing to do the practise, repetitions and rehearsals …

Practice and Ageing

Researchers at the University of Kansas Medical Center have also found evidence that studying a musical instrument, which requires years of practice and learning, may create alternate connections in the brain that could compensate for cognitive decline as we get older. The neuroplasticity of the human brain is finally being more widely understood not only in the military and the performing arts but also in healthcare and parenting strategies.

You Can Choose Your Own Repetitions

There are, of course, many things in life that are not worth repeating. So, try and focus your repetitions on those things that are.

Ever since you were born advertisers and religions have used repetition to program your brain. So, you may as well use it yourself to embrace the patterns that YOU decide are most useful for your own brain. Take charge!

What is Tenpower?

Tenpower is the skill of using the powers of ten. Tenpower is a booster mechanism for your brain software. Just like enzymes that boost up chemical reactions or rockets that boost space shuttles, so can tenpower boost your brain software and greatly empower your thinking skills.

Tenpower is all about using x10 thinking. x10 thinking is also called ‘tentimes’ thinking. Or 10x thinking.

Alfred North Whitehead, the English mathematician/philosopher and co-author with Bertrand Russell of the great ‘Principia Mathematica’ said about ZERO,

“The point about zero is that we do not need to use it in the operations of everyday life. No one goes out to buy zero fish. It is in a way the most civilised of all the cardinals, and its use is only forced on us by the needs of cultivated modes of thought”.

Put-on a Zero!

A zero may not seem like much. If you add it or subtract it from another number, it makes no difference at all. A zero barely exists … until … you put a zero on the end of another number and, mirabile dictu, that number increases tenfold!

That is Tenpower! Even the Egyptians had a symbol for tenpower and maybe that’s why the pyramids are so big.

In cognetics, thinking is moving through think-space, the information universe, the cognos, by powers of ten. Tenpower can be used in any direction – moving out or moving in.

For example, with tenpower you can move from 1 to 10 to 100 to 1000 to 10000 to 100000 to 1000000 to 10000000 etc–or from 1 to .1 to .01 to .001 to .0001 to .00001 to .000001 to .0000001 and so on.

The Official Number of the School of Thinking is 10!

The habit of tenpower is the habit of using the number ten, the habit of adding a zero or the habit of multiplying by ten. By using tenpower you will equip your necktop with a very powerful booster which will give you an unfair survival advantage over others when moving through the information environment.

How can tenpower help you create new brain patterns to evolve your thinking skills?

  1. I can look for more opportunities to apply this powerful programming tool on a daily basis. For example, it is important in my interactions to be able to cite various references in appropriate ways in varying situations . As I learn such references, I can apply tenpower by insuring that each time I master a new reference, I force myself to use it ten times during the day I learned it, thus programming it into my memory repertory.

  2. X10 helps me through repetition, as I do in my hula class lessons every week. Practice Repeat Rehearse and then enjoy and even share–aloha to all.
    Thinking skills repeated give strength. X10 removes the fear that I can’t do more. X10 keeps my thought open for fresh and lateral ideas.

  3. Don’t settle for less (or the same I am used to), settle for more, 10 times more. I like the sound of Ten Power – I am going to use it in my life more often.

  4. Tenpower is important because it is, in its essence, concentration which people lack doing different activities. If you are focused on the issue, you return to it again and again, you scrutinize it, you repeat and, in some way, you extend your knowledge. From CVS to BVS: when you get back to a certain problem again, you start seeing it in a different light, perhaps, evaluating it more deeply. Tenpower helps to create new brain patterns which are proactive , which, in their turn, improve our life. Tenpower i

  5. Tenpower is able to assist in creating new brain patterns by removing the ingrained limitations that are built up throughout life in terms of what outcomes are possible for any given situation based on prior knowledge. In other words tenpower thinking enables us to “unlearn” the conditional thought processes that education and society have taught us, providing a platform to return to truly creative thought processes that are limited only by the power of your own imagination.

    Personally I now find CVS to BVS thinking has become almost automatic, however I am still struggling to apply the same process in actually thinking and mapping out original and creative routes that will move me from CVS to BVS to then start the process again. If anyone has any tips on how to achieve this part they would be greatly received.

  6. Tenpower can help me create new brain patterns and evolve my thinking skills when I understand that X10 is a magnifier and can also serve as a compressor. Where I need to magnify growth, X10 helps me scale up the various aspects under consideration. I amplify or multiply. On the other hand, I might as well need to scale down, de-amplify, compress. Then I scale down and strengthen all factors under consideration to enable me achieve the desired size and capacity.

    Much like ripples widening and pulling back inwards. The direction is determined by the advantage sought: to be bigger or smaller.

  7. By incorporating X10 in my thinking I would not be able to just use my standard approach to solving a problem or coming up with a solution. My thinking would evolve from my current level of thinking to a different level. As I continue to use X10, my thinking would be continuously evolving.

  8. Tenpower can help us to create brain pattern in five ways ways:
    The first way is to escape from our cvs; It is a way to provoke a escape from our current view of the situation.
    The second way is through movement which would force us to see where the idea leads to, instead of judge the validity of that idea.
    The fact to think with ambitious manner is the third way.
    The fourth way will be to repeat the pattern several times and with consistency.
    finally, the fifth way is relating the pattern with other pattern so they are interrelated and become a an active and expanding network.

  9. The Tenpower to me is synonymous to progress through development of skill by continous practice and study. As everything in life, practicing anything in a correct and calculated fashion, just makes us better at it. Brain Power and the evolution of thinking are forced to move in a more enlightened direction.
