Growing up I (MH) loved pulling things apart to see how they worked. I usually couldn't get them back together—you know, clocks, toys, lawnmowers, car transmissions, but I had such skill (marvelously skilled) at tearing them apart. My younger brother Steve could put them back together. He had that aptitude. But not me. Perhaps that explains why I grew up to practice neuro-linguistic and neuro-semantic de-programming!

Did you have fun de-framing in this chapter? Well, take some time and practice long and hard (or playfully if you just have to) deframing every piece of neuro-semantic non-sense that you can get your grubby little linguistic hands on! And no worry, listen to any talk show on radio or television, any sit-com, most movies, conversations among friends... you can find neuro-semantic nonsense everywhere. Ever listen to a politician? A preacher?

Oh yes, do take care with this one. It might alienate friends and loved ones if you do it without their permission, or if you get on a roll and do it for hours on end. Do it here. Do it there. Set up a private practice so that you can privately practice on people! (As Richard Bandler used to say, "Why do you think they call it 'private practice?'")

Neuro-semantic constructions just can't stand up to the deframing power of the Meta-Model. It can unglue dragon states of consciousness. It provides, in fact, one of the primary tools in the NLP Meta-States Model. Check out this same process as a process for slaying dragons (Hall, 1996, Dragon Slaying: Dragons to Princes).
