Gurdjieff said that life gave us three kinds of influences. The first kind of came from life itself and these we imbibe from our surroundings. Let's call these A. Now sages who had attained high degree of evolution also gave out influences to the society and the characteristic difference between these and others was that while they came from sources that were conscious ( Awake) the other type A were mechanical. Now they were conscious only at the point of origin. Lets call them C. The B influences are those that were C in origin but got mixed in the life influences and became mechanical to that extent.

Now he maintained that all B influences if stored differently by their separate valuation could form a kind of Magnetic Center which could then help the search and lead one to C influence or conscious persons.
