Responsability is a unique
concept. It can only reside in a single individual. You may share
it with others, but your portion is not diminished. You may delegate
it, but it is still with you. You may disclaim it, but you cannot
divest yourself of it. (Admiral Hyman Rickover)
CAUSE and POWER are only possible within the psicanic
condition of Responsability*
Personal Power begins with Responsability
*Note that Responsability
in Psicanica is spelled with an "a" as a distinguishing
mark for a technical term.
Our objectives are for you to become more at Cause
in life, to acquire more Power over yourself and both of your universes
and for you to BEcome a more Powerful Being. Our goals in psicanica
include that you become able to play better and bigger games; that
you learn to manifest your movie according to your desires.
Such Cause and Power start with Responsability. Responsability
is a make or break point in life. It is the point of transformation
between Effect = Victim and Cause = Power.
If you are already in a condition of Responsability
for your life and everything in it, congratulations. However, most
of humanity is not in a condition of Responsability.
The consequences of living in No-Responsability include no Power
and not getting much of what you want, relationship problems, low
self-esteem, negative emotions and unhappiness. It is, in fact,
impossible to be happy in a condition of No-Responsability.

Responsability = Response +
Ability. Responsability is the ability to respond. To respond
to or for something is to be at Cause. It is to
act in some manner whether to answer or to take
physical action. Response-ability then is the ability to act.
= ABLE TO ACT
Definitions of Responsability
- The point of change between Effect and Cause on the Cause-Effect
- Consciousness of Cause; acknowledgement and awareness of being
Cause, of being able to act.
- The relationship of a Creator to hir
- An essential element of Love: to deny Responsability is to
- Any condition of possibility of action, including when in
the negative effects of the Cause
- The ability to respond deliberately under self-control and
reason as opposed to out-of-control emotional reaction: logical
choice as opposed to emotional reactivity and resistance.
- The ability to vary your actions and responses until you achieve
the desired result (as opposed to repeating over and over an
ingrained habit or behavioral rut).
- The duty or privilege to care for someone or something.
- A counterpart of Freedom.
- Accountability: The ability and the duty under Love
and Justice to respond for our negative actions, to restore
damaged or lost energy. Without Accountability, Responsability
does not exist.
Explanation of each definition:
- Responsability is the point of transition between Cause and
Effect on the Cause-Effect Polarity Spectrum. The negation of
Responsability automatically puts the Being in Effect
= Victim. Recognition of Responsability automatically
moves the Being to Cause.
- Responsability is Consciousness of Cause. To be responsable
is to be aware of Cause,
of the duty to act when necessary. When a person declares or
believes she is not responsable, she is declaring she need not
act; that she is not Cause. Responsability, then, is recognition
and acceptance of Cause.
Note: As Cause includes decision, initiative,
proactivity and creativity; Denial of Responsability (DOR) impairs
all of these.
Responsability is the relationship of a Creator
to hir creations:
Every Being is Cause when she creates something, and remains
responsable for that creation. A person who creates a bomb is
responsable for the effects of that bomb. Every person creates
her psicanic realities (identities, thoughts, and emotions)
and remains response-able for those creations. This response-ableness
= Cause includes the power to discreate any of those
realities. For example: You are the creator of and responsable
for your emotions. (This
will be proved in a later chapter.)
Responsability as an aspect of Love.
Love is action for the well-being of the beloved: Love
requires Cause. To be loved is to be in Effect (the recipient
of energy); to love is to be at Cause, (the giver of energy).
Responsability is the beginning of Cause. Response-ability as
part of Love—and
of Wisdom—is to be conscious of our Cause, our actions,
and their consequences to avoid harm to others. A person whose
actions result in harm to others is at Cause and is responsable
for those results and failure to love.
You will note that there is very little Love
on this planet as few people take responsibility for the well being
of their brethren, or for the environment. This planet’s highest
feat until now has been Fairness and Justice, not Love.
Were there Love, ignorance and poverty would not exist.
Responsability is any condition of possibility of
action, especially when at the effect of the negative actions
of others (vulnerable to others). In any situation, if you have
any possibility of action, then you are responsable—you
do not need to be the initial Cause of the situation. For example:
you are not responsable for it raining. However, you are responsable
for standing outside in it and getting wet as long as you have
any possibility of action such as going inside or opening an umbrella.
If you have no possibility of action—for example, you are
chained to a post—then you have no responsability for getting
wet. Any possibility of action establishes responsability.
Here is the key question to determine if you are response-able
in any situation where you are suffering negative effects: Do I
have any possibility of any kind of action to stop, change or avoid
those effects? As an adult, you almost always have some possibility
of action in any situation. (Note how it matters not who or what
is causing those effects.)
- The concept of Responsability includes the ability to respond
to others and events with self-control and logic—as opposed
to out-of-control negative emotional or irrational reaction.
It is the ability to respond from reasoned decision in awareness
of actions and consequences (Wisdom) as opposed to "knee-jerk"
emotional reaction in resistance and effect (reactivity). A
person who is response-able acts as opposed to reacts. A person
who is at the effect of hir
negative emotions (activated) is reactive rather than response-able—although
s/he is responsable for those reactions nevertheless. When a
person is activated, s/he reacts without thinking and usually
with unwise, negative consequences for himself and others.
- The concept of Responsability includes the capacity to vary
your actions and responses until you achieve the desired result.
The opposite of this is to repeat over and over any pattern
of behavior (communication or action) despite the fact that
it does not produce the desired result. A person who is response-able,
on not achieving the desired result, will try again using a
new approach. A person who is not response-able will keep trying
with the same futile approach over and over again, sometimes
In psychology, there is a famous story about this
"vary-your-response-ability". In this story, psychologists
test rats by hiding cheese a specific spot in a maze. At the same
time, they test humans (using students) by hiding money in a specific
spot using as a maze a school laboratory. Both rats and students
find the prize (cheese or money) with about equal ability, and both
quickly learn to go directly to the hiding spot.
The difference occurs when the prize is moved to a
new spot. The rats quickly learn that the cheese is no longer in
the old spot and respond by concentrating on finding the new spot.
They say that the students are still breaking into the laboratory
at night looking for the money.)
- Responsability can be position of caring for someone or something,
or of doing = Causing something
positive. This is a very common usage of the word. Examples:
She is responsable for her children. He is responsable for getting
the reports out on time. This is also Responsability as positive
Cause = positive action = Love (see #4 above).
- Responsability is a counterpart of Freedom, of Liberty. A)
Freedom requires Responsability; and B) Responsability does
not exist in the absence of Freedom.
- One of the prices of Freedom is the Responsability to
control one’s Cause and to avoid actions that are
harmful to others (AntiLove). Each entity (except the insane)
is response-able for hir
actions and the consequences of those actions. The violation
of this responsability will result in others revoking your
liberty and controlling your Cause (prison, for example).
Both civil and criminal laws have as their purpose to control
Cause. However, no amount of laws will ever replace Beings
operating consciously in Love,
Wisdom and Responsability.
- If a person is not free to act (to be Cause), but is under
the coercion (at the Effect) of another, the responsability
is with him who controls, who has the Power. This is similar
to #5 above.
- Accountability: Responsability is the ability
and the duty to respond for our actions, including to restore
any damage we Cause. This
aspect of Responsability is also called Accountability. Accountability
is justice; it is the equalization of energy.
There are two sides to accountability. The first is
the positive side: that positive results be rewarded. This is a
basic premise of capitalism: to each according to hir
production. The violation of this principle is what makes communism
and socialism unworkable.
The second side is the negative side. He who produces
negative results is responsable (is to be at Cause) to restore the
energy lost or damaged. He who damages or loses anything is responsable
for restoring that thing. Without such accountability, without the
restoration of energy, responsability does not exist. (The violation
of this principle destroys any system.)
NOT PUNISHMENT: The restoration of
energy is not to be confused with punishment. Punishment is negative
energy designed to make bad-and-wrong and to hurt, to Cause pain
to the offender, either as vengeance or so that s/he does not repeat
that behavior. Punishment is AntiLove. Restoration is the production
of positive energy by the responsable subject to restore damage
done: restoration is an act of Love.
The restoration of damages is Accountability
LOVE and Responsability
Note the relation of Responsability to Love. Responsability
is the beginning of Cause and positive Cause is one of the definitions
of Love. Responsability is also the condition of caring for someone
or thing and that is Love.
For example, should a parent say that s/he is not responsable for
the well-being of hir
child, you would know instantly that s/he does not love her. S/He
is denying being at Cause for hir
child and denial of responsability is denial and the refusal to
love. Responsability as accountability is the reparations of any
damage or harm we do, intentionally or unintentionally, to others.
And, that too, is Love. Responsability is a prerequisite for love.
DENIAL OF Responsability IS DENIAL OF LOVE.
The difference between Accountability and punishment
with children is critical. Children respond very well to Accountability,
even on the negative side of restoring damages they Cause. And Accountability
teaches them Wisdom, Justice and Love
(as explained below).
On the other hand, children and your relationship
with them will always be damaged by punishment, as it will be by
all AntiLove. Children (and everybody else) should never be punished;
they should always be held accountable (according to their age level,
WISDOM and ACCOUNTABILITY
Wisdom and Accountability are reciprocal factors.
Wisdom is the ability to predict the consequences of one’s
actions. To be responsable and avoid harm to others (AntiLove),
and to be Positive Cause = Love, requires
the ability to foresee the consequences of our acts. One of the
definitions of Wisdom is the ability to predict the consequences
Reciprocally, Accountability develops Wisdom. When
you must respond for the consequences of your actions, you are maximally
motivated to learn to predict and control those consequences in
order to maximize reward and reduce damage restoration. You become
a Wiser and more Powerful person.
The consequence of excusing people from responding
for the consequences of their actions, is to fill the world with
people who are either unable to calculate those consequences (unWise),
or who don’t care (unLoving), or both. As Herbert Spencer
put it so succinctly:
The ultimate result of shielding men from
the effects of their follies
is to fill the world with fools.
To the degree that parents raise their children without
training in responsability and accountability, those children as
adults will lack Wisdom (the ability to foresee the consequences
of actions) and Discipline and Personal Power.
Definition: Discipline: The ability to do what you
should do, when you should do it, to the best of your ability, whether
you want to, or like to, or not.
Accountability is a great teacher of Wisdom and a
great trainer and motivator of Discipline.
Without Accountability, Responsability does
not exist. Without Responsability, any energy system will
collapse. At the current, extremely primitive level of spiritual
consciousness of mankind, if there is no Accountability, there will
be no Responsability. Where there is no Responsability there is
no quality Cause, only fools loose in the universe. Where there
is quality Cause, there is no Love.
In advanced races, races that understand that we
are all ONE, races that understand LOVE; everybody is naturally
responsable and accountable as they play win-win and seek the greatest
good of the greater number at all times.
