We have manuals for devices and things, but almost none for human beings. This book, Special Agent’s Manual, which I wrote and published in 2017, fills in this gap and offers some practical advice on how to exercise one’s own special agency both within and the outside. It starts by introducing a framework of thinking, which is based on an active dynamic cognitive reconfiguration of perception and thought. We introduce Special Agent’s re~programming vocabulary, which – after continuous use – has a transforming effect on one’s personality and immediate surroundings. We then move on to introduce several practical skills and physical practices, which can be used to support adaptive soma~cognitive states. Finally, the concepts of Venture Fiction, Cognitive Stimulants, Constructed Identities, and Body/Mind Operating System are introduced in order to demonstrate the practical implications of the approach.
