“Any word” vs. “All words” vs. “Exact phrase” Searches

By default, the lawofone.info search engine uses “any word”-type searches. These often return many, many results, especially when searching for many terms or a phrase. It is often helpful to switch to an “all words” or “exact phrase”-type search, which you can do using the links at the top of each page of search results:

Jump to a specific question in a session

To link to a complete session with a specific question at the top, append “#” plus the question number to the URL. For example, to link to session 10 with question 14 at the top: https://www.lawofone.info/results.php?s=10#14. If you have question numbers showing, the session number (10) is a link to the start of the session and the question number (14) is a link to put that particular question at the top of the page:

10.14 Questioner: For general development [of the] reader of this book, could you state some of the practices or exercises to perform to produce an acceleration toward the Law of One?

Show only one question and answer

If you know exactly which question/answer you want, you can search for it using “session.question”. For example, to show only session 10, question 14, search for “10.14”: https://www.lawofone.info/results.php?q=10.14.

Highlight

If you want to highlight a certain phrase, use “hl”, e.g., https://www.lawofone.info/results.php?q=48.5&hl=forget you the counting.

Play audio

Click the play button (▶) before each question to hear the original recording of Don Elkins asking the question and Ra speaking through Carla Rueckert to give the answer. Show or hide the play buttons with the appropriate link at the bottom of each page of questions and answers:

Bookmark keyword

If your browser lets you add a keyword to bookmarks, you can jump straight to your desired search. For example, in Firefox, you could follow these steps:

  1. Bookmark a lawofone.info search result.
  2. Edit the properties of the bookmark and change the location to https://www.lawofone.info/results.php?q=%s
  3. Add a keyword for the bookmark; for instance “l”

Now you can search for, say, “honestation,” by typing “l honestation” in the URL field:
Using a bookmark keyword

You could add another bookmark to quickly jump to a specific session. Just use “s=%s” instead of “q=%s” in the location field.

Add to browser search engines

You can add lawofone.info to the search engines that your browser offers.

In Firefox, if you use the search bar, click the green plus sign to add lawofone.info as a search engine:
Add to search bar
If you don’t use the search bar, you can use the “Page Actions” menu (three dots next to the URL bar) to add lawofone.info as a search engine. After adding it, you will see it in the list of search engines available:
Firefox search bar

Shorter URLs

To shorten links, you can use lo1.info, tloo.info, or lawof.one. You can link to sessions using s/1 (or whatever session number), to queries using q/law of one, and to categories using c/Archetypical Mind. So a short link to question 14 of session 10 would be lo1.info/s/10#14. You can also use e.g. s=4 or q=love.

Stemming

The search engine uses stemming to attempt to generate meaningful search results. If you don’t want to use stemming, use “exact phrase” on the search page (even if the phrase is only one word long). For example, an “any word” search for beingness will find “being,” also, but an “exact phrase” search will not.

Short words

In “any word” searches, the search engine ignores short words such as “a,” “an,” “and,” and so on. If you want to search for those words, use the “all words” or “exact phrase” types of searches.
