Keep your heart open to dreams. For as long as there's a dream, there is hope, and as long as there is hope, there is joy in living. ~ Anonymous


The implication and application of the “theoretical-match” process should be clearly understood by any individual making use of the different AltanaESP services, otherwise it could give rise to stereotyping, misunderstanding and result in unfounded assumptions, that eventually will destroy healthy and harmonious interactions and/or derail the balanced inner worlds (i.e. psyche) of people. The misuse of AltanaESP theoryAssessment results and subsequent generated statistical reports. will derail and counteract the reliability of interventions and feedbacks or coaching sessions.

AltanaESP theory IS NOT structured and compiled to replace or substitute common senseAlso referred to as the gut feel or intuition of individuals . Merely to encourage and enhance it by expanding awareness horizons with possible and alternative futures to research, explore and think about.

Use your common sense!

One essential aspect that must be realized about AltanaESP's theoretical principlesMainly descriptions, definitions and explanations based on norm tables in accordance with normal distribution curve statistical processing. , is that the theory merely SUGGEST a probability of harmony, compatibility, balance and growth as statistically calculated and subsequent assessment norms as an exploration point of departure. It isn't a scientific verified “cast in stone” prediction, nor a sure recipe for success, nor a quick fix, nor fast-tracking.

Taking the theory into account doesn't imply that when one follow certain “steps” or indicated “phases”, that particular “predicted” outcomes or results are guaranteed. AltanaESP theory only consists of probabilities, possibilities, alternatives and at best likelihoods or feasibilities. AltanaESP theory merely attempts to organize and structure dynamic systems with infinite possibilities and permutations in a more practical and workable manner. Thus, AltanaESP theory merely ENCOURAGE a different perspective and points of view, which might - depending on the individual involved - be supportive to his/her common sense and that could help to guide the personal quest of individuals “seeking solutions” in more productive ways.

Why this approach?…

…because, of the freedom of choice and context! We all have the freedom to choose within the parameters of personal responsibility and group accountability, but simultaneously we should also realize that that no one single theory can describe, accommodate and foresee all possible choices, nor the environmental context in which decision might be taken. In essence, no theory could really deal with the possible impact of the chaos theory and outcome of the butterfly effect. Thus, AltanaESP theoretical concept and assessment methodology, merely attempt to support a wise common sense and to effectively accommodate the power of now.

In order to maintain a realistic and practical balance (i.e. equilibrium) between AltanaESP theory and the demands of the reality in which we find ourselves, we should remember that… every action we take - whether something simple, like brushing our teeth, or something extremely complicated, like trying to save a failing marriage - require thought, effort, time and energy! We have to choose to channel our energies towards a problem. In other words, we must DO something about it. For example… When we make a genuine effort and pay attention to a problem (e.g. learning obstacles) experienced we WILL achieve success no matter how good or how bad the technique, method or strategy that we use. Because, a poor and flawed method, accompanied by deliberate effort, will bring success; while the best, well-researched and educational sound method - without supportive efforts - will yield no success. In essence, it isn't the quality or science of the method or technique that brings success, but the desire, preparedness and determination of the person to put in a real effort and take and accept the responsibility to actually do something!

What is the use of all the research and formulating of theories, when “blood, sweat and tears(i.e a personal effort) actually makes the only difference?

Well, …that's a very good question.

AltanaESP research (under the auspices of SASCEC) and subsequent theories are to improve productivity and support proactive thinking and actions, not replacing personal effort. When we make a personal effort (the real crux of the matter), why not making use of techniques, methods and tools that can assist us to think, act and behave in more productive ways?… Why walk to Durban, when we could take the train, a bus, car or even fly? Why not use techniques and methods that will get us to where we want to be… faster, more focused and with less derailments?

Thus, the foundation of AltanaESP theory is to research and formulate individualized and customized techniques, methods and strategies that would allow any individual to self-actualize and apply his/her energies more economically and with far greater efficiency… providing that it is accompanied by the necessary common sense and wisdom!
