"Transparency" is a one way mirror, i.e., a window designed to allow someone to observe you without themselves being notice, requiring them to be in darkness, i.e., on the window (observers) side of the "mirror." All facilitator's of 'change,' i.e., "group psychotherapists," i.e., seducers, deceivers, and manipulators of men, women, and children (facilitating a dialoguing of opinions to a consensus meeting, basing the outcome upon everyone's "feelings" of the 'moment' in the 'light' of the situation, negating the preaching of commands and rules to be obeyed as given and the teaching of facts and truth that be accepted as is, by faith—which engenders a guilty conscience when they do wrong, disobey, sin, i.e., which inhibits or blocks them from having and "enjoying" the carnal pleasures of the 'moment' they desire) are observing your method of communication and behavior (spoken language and body language), controlling the conversation, i.e., the method you and others are using to communicate with, 'changing' your communication away from the preaching, teaching, and discussing of commands, rules, facts and truth, i.e., away from being "negative" to the dialoguing of opinions to a consensus, i.e., to your and everyone else's "feelings" of the 'moment' in the 'light' of the given situation,  i.e., to being "positive," thereby 'changing' your behavior, getting you to reflect back from the mirror your (and everyone else's) carnal nature, void of the father's/Father's authority, i.e.,  void of any one you brought into the room with you who is "negative," i.e., who is not in harmony with, i.e., who inhibits or blocks your and everyone else's carnal nature, i.e., your parent's beliefs or position, i.e., your constituents beliefs or position, i.e., your guilty conscience ("private convictions") for doing wrong, disobeying, sinning, etc., so that all that "is" in the room is of your (and everyone else's) carnal nature, i.e., "self interest" only, so that the facilitator of 'change' can do wrong, disobey, sin without having a guilty conscience, i.e., with impunity, with your and everyone else's approval (affirmation). In this way the facilitator of 'change' can use you (and all that is yours) as "natural resource" for his or her own carnal pleasures and gain. Anytime you are on the computer, for example, your "self interests" are being observed—in order to market (buy and sell) you, so those who have your "self interests" on file can use you for their own gain. "Transparency" makes that possible.

"We know how to change the opinions of an individual in a selected direction, without his ever becoming aware of the stimuli which changed his opinion." "We know how to influence the ... behavior of individuals by setting up conditions which provide satisfaction for needs of which they are unconscious, but which we have been able to determine." "If we have the power or authority to establish the necessary conditions, the predicted behaviors [our potential ability to influence or control the behavior of groups] will follow." "We can choose to use our growing knowledge to enslave people in ways never dreamed of before, depersonalizing them, controlling them by means so carefully selected that they will perhaps never be aware of their loss of personhood." "'Now that we know how positive reinforcement works [dialoguing opinions to a consensus, i.e., dialoguing our feelings (our carnal desires of the 'moment') to a feeling of oneness ('discovering' through dialogue the common carnal desires that we can all agree on, thereby affirming ourselves, and working together, as one, in fulfilling them, we establish our carnal desires of the 'moment,' i.e., our "self" over and therefore against the father's/Father's authority, i.e., his/His restraints)], and why negative doesn't' [the father's/Father's authority to 1) give us commands and rules which go counter to and therefore restrain our carnal desires of the 'moment,' 2) reward us or bless us when we do what is right and obey, 3) chasten us when we do wrong and disobey, and 4) cast out those who disrespect i.e. who question and/or challenge his/His authority, i.e., who reject his/His restraints]... 'we can be more deliberate and hence more successful in our cultural design. We can achieve a sort of control under which the controlled [the manipulated] though they are following a code much more scrupulously [more government regulations and oversight (sight based management)] than was ever the case under the old system, nevertheless feel free. They are doing what they want to do, not what they are forced to do. That's the source of the tremendous power of positive reinforcement—there's no restrain and no revolt. By a careful design, we control not the final behavior, but the inclination to behavior—the motives, the desires, the wishes. The curious thing is that in that case the question of freedom never arises." (Carl Rogers, on becoming a person: A Therapist View of Psychotherapy)

The facilitator of 'change,' by finding out what you covet (your "self interests"), giving you words you want to hear, gaining your trust, so he can use you for his own gain, buys you with your "self interest" and sells you to the highest bidder. It is not the commands, rules, facts, and truth you bring into the room the facilitator of 'change' is interested in, he hates them, (asking you to set them aside, i.e., suspend them, as on a cross so all can participate without you creating a guilty conscience in them), it is your "self interests" of the 'moment,' i.e., what you covet he is interested in, without that information, revealed through the dialoguing of opinions to a consensus, he can not "own" you, i.e., take "ownership" of you.

 "And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you:" 2 Peter 2:3
