The 10 Unconventional Laws

- Practice Consciousness Engineering: Adjust and re-engineer our systems of beliefs and habits to promote growth.
- Reject the Means Goals and Embrace the Ends Goals: Differentiate between means goals (societal expectations) and end goals (true desires) and focus on the latter.
- Upgrade Your Systems for Living: Discard old, unhelpful systems and design better ones.
- Live in Blissipline: Prioritise happiness and cultivate a state of bliss through daily discipline.
- Follow Your Quest: Discover your life’s mission or ‘quest’ and work towards it.
