The study of the forty-eight orders of laws to which man is
subject cannot be abstract like the study of astronomy; they can
be studied only by observing them in oneself and by getting free
from them.

At the beginning a man must simply understand that he is
quite needlessly subject to a thousand petty but irksome laws
which have been created for him by other people and by himself.
When he attempts to get free from them he will see that he
cannot. Long and persistent attempts to gain freedom from them
will convince him of his slavery. The laws to which man is subject
can only be studied by struggling with them, by trying to get free
from them. But a great deal of knowledge is needed in order to
become free from one law without creating for oneself another in
its place.

G. I. Gurdjieff
Man has in himself his own "Ray of Creation", his own "Moon",
"Earth", "Planets" and "Sun". These correspond to his False
Personality, his True Personality, his Essence and his Real I, and
they are subject to the laws of their corresponding worlds. False
Personality is the most mechanical part of a man, under 96 orders
of laws and under the influence of the Moon. Everyone in the Work
must observe and study the laws of his own False Personality, with
the aim of freeing himself.
