#11. Psychology of Man

In language we often meet our greatest difficulties. All the negative implications of imagination is largely a function of misunderstanding what we say to ourselves or to others. So for instance, if we want to speak about man from the point of view of evolution we need to realise that the word ‘man' in ordinary language does not admit of any gradation. Man is man and that’s it. But hardly does any justice to the great differences in consciousness that can be distinguished in man. The system of ‘The Fourth Way’ identifies seven different categories of man. The first three categories, that correspond with the main three centres,  are practically on the same level.

Man No. 1, or physical man, is a man in whom the moving or instinctive centres predominate over the intellectual and emotional.

Man No. 2, or emotional man is a man in whom the emotional centre predominates over the...

#10. Psychology of Identification

There are many things that can interfere with your intentions to transform your life. There are many ways in which one can fall back asleep. The difficulties man has in maintaining his efforts to remember himself are the manifestations of lying, imagination, the expression of negative emotions and unnecessary talking. It only shows man’s utter mechanicalness and impossibility even of struggling against this mechanicalness without help, that is, without new knowledge and without actual assistance.

All these forms of 'falling asleep' have a certain definite feature of its own, unknown, or at least unregistered and unnamed in ordinary psychology. The more reason that this definite feature needs special study.

The main feature driving all expressions of negative emotions, sleep and mechanicalness is 'Identifying' or ‘identification.’ Identification is a curious state of being in which...

#9. Psychology of Imagination

On the path to self actualisation and personal transformation one finds some heavy obstacles that can hinder man from reaching his full potential. As important as knowing your goal it is equally important knowing the pitfalls and roadblocks on the way in attaining that goal. We are machines and freedom is an illusion. The only way to become more free and have more abilities to do, is to become aware of our limitations and have a clear understanding of the nature of these illusions. As i mentioned before, the psychology of man’s possible evolution, can be described as the psychology of lying.

The second dangerous feature man finds in himself is imagination. Imagination is a function of what we add to reality. It is not reality it is a function of what we say about what happened, that did not happen. We imagine to know what we observe to be true where in fact the only thing we can do is...

#7. Psychology of Lying

As stated in previous video’s ‘The Fourth Way’ system can be seen as the psychology of man’s possible evolution which in fact is quit different from more traditional views on psychology. First, the psychology of the possible evolution of man is the study of oneself. One cannot study ‘The Fourth Way’ the same way as one can study any other science not directly connected with oneself. One has to begin the study of ‘the psychology of the possible evolution of man’ with oneself.


Secondly, traditional psychology is based on the assumption that man is a certain way. The system however teaches us that man has the potential of becoming something other, something more, than he is right now.

In addition to that we can even distinguish a third major difference between traditional psychology and the system. Man is not what he thinks he is. So if you would study...

#8. Psychology of Self

To know oneself was the first principle of many old psychological schools. To know oneself according to the principles of the system is to know oneself as a machine and the structure of the machine. A crucial property of the machine is that it is made of many different machines, a concept also expressed in the study of the four functions: intellectual, emotional, moving and instinctive. From the point of view of the system you have not one mind but four minds or centres which control your ordinary actions.

The structure of centres which embodies their initial capacities, strong sides and defects, belongs to essence. Their contents, all that what a centre acquires over time, belongs to personality. Personality however, is as equally necessary for the development of man as is essence, as long as it stands in its right place. To stand in its right place Personality needs to learn the truth about itself but it does not...

20. Ouspensky's Epilogue

“ I met this system in 1915 in Russia. There was a group in Moscow conducted by G. I. Gurdjieff, a Caucasian Greek who came to Russia from Central Asia. I learned very much working with these groups, but in 1918 I parted from them because from my point of view they began to lose the most important of their original principles. Soon after my parting with them almost all members of groups parted with Mr. G. Only four people remained with him.  I met Mr. G. again in 1920 at Constantinople and again tried to work with him, but very soon found that it was impossible. In the beginning of 1922 when I was already in London Mr. G. came to me and told me about his plans for new work which he intended to start in England or in France. I did not believe much in these plans, but I decided to make a last experiment and promised to help him to organise his work. At that time I already had groups in London....
