The Technology Of Scientology And Dianetics
This will be most obviously
the longest chapter in this book. I was asked by Fred Hare 15 years ago to write down the technology of Scientology and Dianetics
and to rewrite all the books because Scientology is defined as not as a textbook science but as a consecutive set of research
papers, tapes and bulletins.
put it all down in a clear, concise order was an idea which L. Ron Hubbard, its supposed founder, had in 1965. He thought
he could find a writer who wrote well, put him in a room for 6 - 7 months and that would be the end of that. So, I and another
individual were approached with this particular task, which we were supposed to do for the love of mankind. I refused.
There are supposedly 25 million words of chat involved
in this research line endeavour and how they come to those numbers is beyond my imagination.
I calculate it to be closer to 21 million words which I'll have to boil
down here in this chapter. We will only be covering what is essential, need-to-know and must-know information in the technology.
There are separate chapters after this review of
the technology covering the philosophy, the church, the owners of the church, the hidden secrets and the tragedy. The majority
of the book is about to unfold here in these next 400 pages.
If you understand subjectively what I will state here in this chapter, get your own
confusions and aberrations cleared up on the areas mentioned (in other words, get your own case, fixations or electrical energy
run off yourself where you are no longer confused or swayed in these areas), then you can understand this information.
If you understand this information, you can apply
it and help other people in a very lasting fashion. Although I have seen an almost unlimited quantity of lip service towards
doing so, it seems that no one else can quite arrive with a complete understanding of this technology, whether it be Hubbard
himself, or the tens of thousands of people which have studied this subject intensely.
I would suspect you could trace their inability to comprehend and apply
this technology to their own unrun cases: their own aberrations and ignorance on the subject matter addressed.
It is ironic that it is their ignorance of areas
outside of Scientology and Dianetics technology which throws them off of their studies into delusions.
I have attempted to cover all extraneous areas outside
of the technology which might effect it in this one volume so that when exception occurs in the application of the technology,
the individual will not be thrown off course, off guard or be overwhelmed by extraneous information. Extraneous information
inevitably comes across ones path if one pursues the application of this particular conglomeration of wisdom.
An individual's ignorance is generally the result
of living in a culture rampant with tremendous ignorance, thus people trying to study, learn and understand Scientology and
Dianetics are alluded by two almost impossible factors. They are already ignorant and already aberrated. They aren't up to
knowing that, much less suspecting it, much less perceiving it. In other words, people are ignorant and they are aberrated;
that is, if given an opportunity of going from A to B, they will go to C instead.
One logical path out of this paradox is the multiple-pass approach on
a subject matter clearing up the aberration and the ignorance as one goes. You just read the material over and over. As far
as a complete and accurate assimilation of the technology, this path would not work until all this aberration is gone.
The bootstrap-limited approach (teaching people about
Scientology and Dianetics prior to them having all of their aberration run off) has proven historically unworkable. Not only
because people do the wrong things, but there is no way they will ever rise above being dumb and ignorant and prefer truth
and sanity until their aberrations are gone. They would simply see no point in it. These particular ideas (in fact every idea
in this book) can be subjected to objective tests and be found to be true.
The model way or the ideal way happens to be the only workable way. Someone had to
have their case completed first before they could understand and apply the technology.
This oversimplification is only one in the issue of why no one can understand
and apply the technology with any degree of consistency, accuracy and success. The other issue is, in spite of these determinates
of why data can't be transmitted, knowing the materials objectively has no relationship to understanding. Once the information
is known personally, it can be applied. Knowingness is a personal matter. Operating on another person's knowingness has very
limited workability. It is only valuable to absorb, digest and work with other peoples knowingness in order to develop ones
own. There is no record of all this information being assimilated and developed as a personal knowingness which the existence
of the church or the study of the religion. These three determinates: (1) peoples affinity and unawareness for remaining aberrated,
(2) their own unawareness of their high degree of ignorance, and (3) their complete lack of any personal knowingness -- add
up to failure on not only the average student, but every student that has adventured on this particular road
99% of something is
not a whole. Even if someone had attained 90% understanding, which some Public Relations Officer somewhere might promote as
an idea, would be a complete asininity. There is no way anyone could have absorbed more than 10% because there are no records
within the church of anyone ever running extremely high aberrations off a case.
There is a way of measuring electrical discharge of mental masses off of a
person which is tone-arm divisions an hour. The best work ever done in the church within the organised religion, is about
l0 - 15 divisions on the tone-arm in an hour. Any person who knows the technology or if any person were to know 99% of it,
they could average over l00 and up to 500 divisions an hour.
What holds back accurate, decent application of the subject is the case state of the practitioner, not
the person being consulted.
precursory remarks about the technology had to be made in order to clear the record because out of the 21 - 25 million words
which contain dozens of technologies, there is actually a single, decent, workable and perfect way to assist other individuals
quite markedly at about l0 - l00 times the rate, more than anything ever mentioned or suspected within those 21 - 25 million
The probably reason for
this particular variance is that this technology existed before this particular time on what is known as the past track in
its pure form and only vague remembrances have been reconstructed through the very personal and very brilliant recollections
of L. Ron Hubbard.
the sloppiness and disorder and general casualness which surrounded this 30-year research line have completely obscured the
salient factors of its application.
So, an abundance of research was done but as far as the applicable elements of that research being put in orderly fashion,
Hubbard went the same route as Jesus: those that have ears to hear, can hear and those that have eyes to see can see. In doing
so he fathered only one complete transmission.
Hubbard has remarked that he has released only 15% of what he knows and sees no point in releasing the rest
of the information in that no one has caught onto the 15%. I seriously doubt that that is true. However, if there is validity
to it, I can comprehend the wisdom of his limited disclosure. Within this text I have confined my remarks to a small percentage
of what I am aware of as a courtesy. The degree of disclosure of vital information is too simple a variable to judge an individual
by. The work which results from events which occur as a result of ones writings are a better judge. I am quite sure that there
are some ignorant idiots out there that challenge my remarks. It is a sign of ignorance to judge instead of look and groups
are full of people prejudiced against truth. In fact, groups are probably formed by mutual disagreement instead of mutual
agreement and are held together by that disagreement.
Ending up in this unique position, may or may not have been my design. I found it quite unbelievable
20, 15 and 10 years ago. About 5 years ago dozens of people became aware of my unique position in knowing the technology.
They not only brought it to my attention but to the attention of many others. When approached by people of station, I have
generally explained that I am essentially doing my own thing, guided by my own conscience and immune from the positive and
negative forces of traditional human society (power, position, influence and threat on bodily life).
I trust these preliminary remarks will provide an adequate
background from which we can start to discuss the application of the scientific method towards the humanities, philosophies,
religion, the occult, the nature of existence and many other areas which are the determinates in a person's past, present
and future awareness level, intelligence, sanity, health, well-being, capability level and the individual's power relationship
towards other life. We will address this fixed-quantum time continuum, the individual's stability, integrity and his ability
to determine his own space, thoughts, position, non-position, certainty and his ability to co-operate (or not) with other
freely-determining individuals through all man's awarenesses including those beyond perception; and lastly, the individual's
integrity, decency, truth level, individuality, co-existence ability and ability to not be. Not be is a magical ability in
a unrestricted, new, fresh, non-responsive, original and creative sense.
Much of what you will read will appear to be simply codified and synthesised common
sense (which it is) which you may assume you already know. You may understand it, but I doubt that you know it. If you are
not using it, you do not know it. What a man knows he uses. When a man understands, he simply understands and discards.
What people think, what people feel, and what people
do are three different things. To the degree that those three things align, they are rational. To the degree that they are
different, they are nuts. The order of importance is critical. You can only judge a man's bottom line by his actions, which
are direct reflections of his deepest thoughts. Emotions are completely separate activities.
Thinking has nothing to do with thoughts. Thinking is 2 + 2 = 4, it is
formulated, it is done within time, it is consequential, it is cause- effect, and it is computing. thought is just that, a
pink elephant, a thought. It is not thinking.
However, some of you may insist much of this is codified common sense and 'I know that' and 'I use it', so congratulations
to you for that. There will be information which is new. Take your time with it, play with it, test it and find out if it
is true. I happen to know it's true, but that is my truth which does you no good. Only your truth does you good. This is not
only my idea or L. Ron Hubbard's idea, or Buddha's idea, or Lao Tse's idea. It has been said often.
The whole subject of history or origins of information is
an absurdity. Once an idea is known and stated to another, it is then everyone's and then people act on it. Much more is accomplish
by writing this book than someone reading it. Someone reading it alone accomplishes more than however many other people read
it. I believe it is called putting something in the physical universe, then everyone gets it and has it to draw upon. So,
let us begin:
If one were to be
very wise, then you should obtain and study on ones own, the Technical Dictionary of Scientology, Dianetics Today, the Tech
Volumes (which are the Red Books of Scientology), The Book of Scales, 0- 8, 8:8008, 8-80, The Creation of Human Ability, The
Fundamentals of Thought, The Phoenix Lectures, How To Choose Your People, Dianetics, and Science of Survival in that particular
order. However, since that outside reading can only be suggested, I'll have to be clearing and explaining the words as I go.
From a technical viewpoint let us first define Scientology.
It is a science of know to know answers, and also a science of life betterment, a science of understanding, a science of communication,
an applied philosophy wherein a person discovers for himself that he can become aware over any problem and solve that problem
One dictionary defined
it as a system of organised axioms resolving problems of the spirit, life and thought developed through the application and
methodology of the exact sciences to the humanities by L. Ron Hubbard, American engineer and philosopher.
A seventh definition might be the science which raises
a person's ability to be aware and act.
An eighth definition is philosophy and technology which when applied correctly results in peace of mind, real security
and attainment of some degree of final truth.
It is a history of the technology as Mr. Hubbard himself basically developed some philosophies about life and
other developed philosophies about life which they freely gave to him. Anyway, it all came out under his name. People found
this interesting and to some degree workable and they passed that fact along to other people. It grew and organisations were
formed to unify and direct its growth.
Let us define the fellow, Hubbard, more succinctly. Although. it may seem a departure, I'd like to read or state what is
listed in Who's Who In The South And Southwest, because the personal life of L. Ron Hubbard, fortunately or not, directly
influenced what the technology was and is: born Tilden, Nebraska, March 13, 1911, H.R. & Ledora May Waterberry H., student

One of the premises on engaging upon the technology
of Scientology is to acknowledge that there is adequate quantity of human misery to work on and resolve. There are a number
of people who feel that everything is fine just the way it is and nothing really needs to be done about anything because it
won't effect them personally. This is a rather short term, selfish viewpoint regardless of how prevalent it is.
The facts are that one-third of the world will be
dead in 8 - 10 years from starvation; in the last 80 years l00 million people have been killed, that is, they did not die
natural deaths; 60% of the South American population is illegitimate; at present, the U.S. has over 40,000 nuclear weapons
and the exact figure is possibly twice that; France, England, China and a number of others have atomic weapons; the U.S. has
made public to all nations the plans for constructing nuclear reactors for public power 15 years ago. Later it was released
that the waste products from these reactors do make excellent bombs. There is no way to keep the bombs secret anymore, practically
anyone can build a bomb. Estimates on defence expenditures total an incredible amount of money. A significant portion of the
defence budget goes toward the development of gas and biological systems of war. The neutron, or enhanced radiation device,
bomb is spreading throughout the world, Crime and divorce rates continue to rise; drug addiction has been rising at an unprecedented
rate and is beginning to consume society. The population increase over the next 120 years is a sobering prospect. These are
not pessimistic, random and undocumented statements. They are facts which can be verified.
Many more things could be said on the subject of human misery and social
chaos which have been outlined by many other authors: Bertrand Russell, Aldous Huxley, Julian Huxley, Erich Fromm, Robert
Lidner, Philip Wylie, John Stormer, etc.
I simply want to make the point that it is an essential part of the Scientology technology to recognise that we
are living in an age of relative chaos in which misery is multiplying in an exponential sense. Newspapers and magazines are
completely saturated with it to such a degree that the public accepts it without comment. It has become an accepted thing.
No one has, or very few people, seek to do much about these conditions.
The next underlying tenet, or element, or background idea that one must be aware
of in addressing Scientology technology is civilisations in themselves destroy themselves. Despite all their great benefits,
they are inadequate. Civilisations coincident with other civilisations struggle and destroy each other. They communicate at
a bullet level in war. Our present civilisation, as it stands now, is declining towards more chaos, and has an economic system
that is declining faster than society, and has an inadequate education system which promotes mechanical duplication and robotism
instead of certainty and/or judgement. Present society is characterised by sciences that classify as their goal. Many of these
sciences are non-heuristic, non-predictable and non-workable. Present society is also characterised by irresponsibility towards
its fellows. There is a breakdown in the traditional values and value systems. There is a breakdown in natural values and
natural value systems.
media, that is, newspapers, magazines, radio, TV and movies continually promote the commodity of chaos and people continue
to buy it. Look at the news-stands and you get an impression of where the world is headed. Whether this is actually true or
not is another subject. People buy chaos, believe in chaos and as a result (to a degree) live in chaos. This broad survey
is made on a relatively pessimistic note (which is also a superficial note because progress and decline are both rather illusionary
upon intense inspection). However, the point is made that society is in general in a down-trend and if the individual is to
survive as an individual ones chances are reduced markedly by remaining in the bandwagon of society, playing out societies
roles and the bandwagon apparently has no steering wheel. Thus, the conclusion can be drawn that there is more chaos coming
and becoming aware of chaos is a higher state than pretending that it isn't there.
One has to recognise that it is there in order to help order it. So, in
other words, if there is a snake in the road and you see it, you will walk around it instead of stepping on it. Chaos is similar
to that. Civilisation is declining toward more chaos, unprediction, and uncontrol with the majority of individuals tagging
along in total agreement with this decline and if you are in agreement with it you will decline with it and you will become
what it is becoming. I would suspect that people have been talking about Doomsday since time immemorial and they have been
in most instances wrong. However, cursory inspection of the present ratio of wisdom to power in society can be disturbing.
So, in order to survive above and beyond the group level of a savage civilisation degrading towards extinction, one would
have to become more aware than one presently is, at least more aware than society is, learn more than society has learned,
know more than society knows, and be able to act faster than society can.
Furthermore, in order to avoid becoming an effect of an inadequate civilisation,
a person must be able to predict that civilisation, in other words, to be able to see when, and where and how it is falling
apart, at least enough to get oneself out of it in good condition. One should take care of oneself, then perhaps after one
has taken care of oneself, he can do something about others and for society in general.
It is also part of the technology that one should recognise that we can
do something about ourselves and others, particularly if we gain more knowledge and ability than we presently have. One can
do a lot for oneself and others by raising ones ability to know and act. So, to increase ones ability to survive, one needs
to increase ones knowledge and his overall ability level.
Scientology technology is based on these particular set of assumptions and therefore Scientology technology
is a science of gradients or levels through which a person can increase his knowledge and ability. By knowing more, one can
predict more; by being able to predict more, one can either control or avoid others control. By doing so one can win and by
winning one attains some degree of self-satisfaction, happiness or growth.
So, Scientology technology could be summarised as a ladder out of human misery and
the inadequacies of civilisation to greater states of awareness and understanding which hopefully would result in health,
happiness and immortality.
technology properly applied is a way of getting up and walking without stumbling down the road to truth.
There is an element within an individual called a
subconscious mind, a reactive mind, which works on a stimulus-response basis. Another person says "So and so is stupid", or
"I don't like his personality", or "Bill can't be reasoned with", or "So and so has no good intentions", or "Hell hath no
fury like a woman scorned", or "You can't reason with the Russians". You are talking about minds in each of those cases.
The study of the mind is a highly relevant and important
matter. Perception, understanding, taste and ability to act are all monitored by, and usually limited by, the mechanics of
the mind. If the mind is so important, so basic to everyone's existence and activity, the question arises why don't we know
enough about the mind to control and improve it? The answer to that question is that we don't know because we assume that
someone else does.
a tendency to act like governments when there is something that needs to be known, instead of finding out about it, they study
it and form committees.
have agreed that there is a specialised field that has been set to study the mind, hence the existence of classification science
known as psychology and psychiatry. Psychology is actually a set of theories towards handling neuroses and psychiatry is a
science of doing something with the severely mentally ill. This is a pretty presumptuous line of attack. assuming we don't
need to know about the mind because someone else does, but this assumption is prevalent and this assumption doesn't help us
unless we investigate their field. Psychology and psychiatry are classification sciences and thus their workability, depth,
and penetration are somewhat limited for they do not produce uniform, quick or remarkable results. Doubling a person's ability,
income, or IQ is just not a commonplace occurrence. The reason for this is that they don't have enough scientific understanding,
data and knowledge about the mind.
If a person can heal a man, or if one can get one who is thoroughly mixed up and feeling like they are at the bottom of
the well into aligning his confusion, straightening his whole life up, then, you know something about the mind. If you can't
heal and can't straighten people out then you don't know what is happening in the mind. So, our not-knowing about the human
mind doesn't help us, we suffer as individuals because we do not know and the classification sciences in the subject of the
human mind offer little but explanations of why they can't help.
There is a dangerous misconception that knowing about the mind is a dangerous thing. The fact is exactly
opposite. One of the most dangerous things a person can do is not know about the mind, to simply not learn anymore about it
than he already does know. Everyone does know something about the mind because one deals with them every day no matter what
you do. If you don't learn about the mind, if you don't know about it, you will become an effect of it, your own and other
peoples. So, if your life or yourself is controlled by your mind because you don't know about it, at the very least you could
be described as being in a pickle. Not knowing, not handling the human mind brings about the precarious state of a Pandora's
box of ills: drugs, alcohol, psychosomatic illness, excessive medication, justification, rationalisation and abandonment of
purposes, or all the above would result in people having a mental framework within which they can't get better or change anything.
This mental framework is called a "case" or a "bank".
After years of continued living at the effect of the subconscious (reactive) mind and other peoples'
subconscious (reactive) minds, one attains a state of "being reasonable" about everything, calling the mess that he is in
"living". Such individuals think that aberration and problems are "normal", unsolvable and make excuses for insanity's. A
person even ends up making excuses for himself. Such a man has totally failed at his own goals. Not-knowing about the mind
and being an effect of the mind will cause your demise. You will even die because of it. That is such an acceptable fact that
it isn't even shocking. People say, so what. Death is a step up for them, they mistakenly think. The idea even filtered into
Failed goals and
frustration may be accepted as "normal", as average by the majority, but to accept life in this way, to "adjust to it all"
is ignorance and apathy. This sort of attitude is what has gotten us into the marvellous position which we are presently in
to be able to wipe ourselves (4.3 billion people) out in 30 - 40 minutes. The creation of that particular mechanic is just
a minor example of what comes from peoples' not needing to know about the mind. This what comes from the assumption that people
that study things know something about them. Society and science have reach a state of inadequacy in knowing about the mind.
Believe it or not, there are actually people out
there walking around that have the idea that the mind is a hunk of meat in the skull of a meat-body. These peoples' notions
of improvement is cutting pieces of it up with knifes, destroying parts of bodies. This type of biological work, biological
assumption, in other words, of sawing the mind up, resides as part of the human body, is a very unscientific and amazing premise.
I'm not just pointing out critical remarks here. I'm trying to say something. What I'm saying is that because of generally
accepted lies about the mind, each individual is subject to the probability of further degradation and misery. So, we might
as well get into the subject and look at it.
The mind is somewhat covered in a book entitled Dianetics. What we would genereally call the reactive mind is
not you, is not the person. A person is not a mind, a person has a mind. A person can look at a mind and looking requires
some type of distance. You are you, a mind is a mind.They are two different things. By believeing that you are a mind, by
being a mind, instead of looking at one, you can get yourself into a fantastic amount of confusion and difficulty. By recognizing
the difference between you and your mind, by looking at instead of being a reactive mind, you can increase your intelligence
and ability to a heretofore undescribed and fantastic state.
The mind can be classified into three parts. The first would be the analytical mind which is the person,
the individual, you, the awareness of areness unit. It receives and retains experience data to compose and resolve problems
and directs the organism along the ares of survival. It has differentiational abilities and can think in similarities. It
solves problems not by facsimilies, for instance, mental image pictures in total, but by present time perception also.
The second part could be called the reactive mind.
It is that portion of the mind which files and retains physical pain, painful emotion, counter-emotion, counter-effort and
counter-thought and aesthetics. It seeks to direct the organism solely on a stimulus-repsonse basis by using the above type
facsimile and/or other mental masses to survive with and to align data. It thinks only in identities; it has little to no
third part would be the somatic mind. It is that portion of the mind which, directed by the analytical mind or the reactive
mind, places solutions into effect on the physical level within the body (heartbeat, metabolism, etc.).
To simplify, the first part is you and differentiates
data easily, the analytical mind. The reactive mind is a stimulus-response mechanism that thinks only in identities, it can
only associate. It has been called "the subconscious". This is the mind that reduces one's ability and makes one act irrationally.
Number three is the somatic mind that regulates the body and motor functions.
In Scientology, one becomes less and less an effect of the confusions of the
reactive mind by first, learning and understanding the composition of the reactive mind, second by learning how to handle
his own reactive mind and the reactive minds of other people, third by disconnecting himself from it and temporarily moving
himself away from it (releasing), and fourthly, by erasing the reactive mind totally (clearing). Doing this raises the awareness
and ability of the individual to a state previously unattainable, a state difficult to describe or even imagine because of
the immense quality of subjective personal freedom, perception enlightenment and happiness. The state of Free Being that poets
and prophets glimpse is a very poor comparison. Scientology defines this state crudely as that of the state of Clear when
one has been cleared of his previous misconceptions and no longer uses yesterday's answers to solve today's problems.
Theoretically, a person that was Clear would not
A Release is a person
who is temporarily Clear. This state is quite temporal. Most people hit this state of Release for a few seconds when they
cognite, in other words, regain an awareness that they previously had. This happens at least once a week on people. On people
that are in good shape, it is happening hourly. On Clears it is happening each second. Words such as inspiration, vision describe
the clarity of awareness at this level of freedom.
To get a closer look at these states by doing the first step, let's get a good idea of what a reactive
mind is made up of, how it operates and how it affects us.
So, let's review the definition. It is the part of the mind which files and retains physical pain and
painful emotion. So, this thing files facsimiles (mental-image pictures containing all perceptics and considerations) of As
incidents containing pain, physical, emotional and spiritual. All "traumatic" incidents are filed by the perceptions of the
incident (sight, hearing, motion, whatever), phrases in the incident, and considerations about the incident.
This incident is filed in the reactive mind of the child. The child's
emotion during the incident is fear, he wanted to communicate "Help!...help me somebody!", the date was 1950, August 10th
for the incident.
|Example:||baby on a blue blanket is approached by a roach and bitten. Mother yells, "Oh God,
a bug! a roach! See what happens when we live in this cheap place!"|
the incident is filed:
By time: August l0, 1950
By emotion: Fear
By consideration: "Help!...help me somebody!"
By visio: Blue blanket,
roach, the room, mother
By phrase: "Oh God!", "a bug!", "a roach", "See what happens", "We live", "When we live", and "This
incidents that are filed by the reactive mind are retained. The physical pain and painful emotion is retained in the reactive
mind by the use of facsimiles, that is, mental image pictures. Examination and activation of the August 10, 1950 facsimile
ten years later will make the young man feel exactly the same emotional and physical pain. The reactive mind is made up of
facsimiles containing pain and counter-emotion, counter effort, and counter-thought. Counter-emotion could be defined as any
emotion that the individual has not yet taken responsibility for or for which he has given up responsibility. Counter-effort
is any force for which the individual has not yet taken responsibility for or for which he has given up responsibility. Counter-thought
is any thought for which the individual has not taken responsibility for or for which he has given up responsibility. This
means that anything that occurs to an individual for which he does not take responsibility for, that is , he does not exercise
his ability to be cause and confront it, in the form of the emotion, effort or thought is filed and retained by the reactive
"It seeks to direct the
organism on a stimulus-response basis..." When something in the present-time environment approximates an incident of pain
in the past, the exact solutions, emotions and considerations in the past incident will be forced on the individual for him
to execute in present- time. Traumatic incident "A" is solved by solution "B". From then on difficulties similar to incident
"A" will cause the reactive mind to dictate to the person that "B" is the answer to the problem.
(1) The degree of similarity of the two incidents, (2) the
amount of pain in the original incident "A", and (3) the strength of the individual in present-time will determine the amount
of effect this phenomenon has on the person's behaviour in the present situation. This bringing up of old solutions and emotions
to current situations by the reactive mind is called restimulation. It may be so mild that you do not notice it and simply
smile and continue watching the movie or so powerful that you become permanently stuck in one incident. We call people in
such a state psychotics.
the above type facsimiles to survive with and to align data." The reactive mind works solely on a stimulus-response basis
by using these mental-image pictures of past incidents of pain and irresponsibility for the purpose of increasing its survival
and aligning data in confusions.
"It thinks only in identities." Everything is equal in the reactive mind. It actually doesn't even "think", it only identifies
and associates; it doesn't decide, it only re-acts.
"It has ... no differentiational ability." It can't see differences. It can't discriminate. It can't
separate. -Woman in the reactive mind can be restimulated by any woman in life. -See in the reactive mind can be restimulated
by the ocean. An incident with a girl friend may be restimulated by a sergeant's phrase. It has no differentiational ability.
The Axioms: The Axioms of Scientology are definite,
precise axioms which Life follows in the material universe. There are very close to an absolute, "practically absolute". The
first two axioms are very close to an absolute, the remaining 56 axioms are those which apply to Life as it exists in this
physical universe. So, the Axioms of Scientology are the rules of life that we all live by, that all life plays by. Not only
are they self evident, they are all, each and every one, scientifically provable.
The first one states that Life is basically a static. A Life static has
no mass, no motion, no wavelength, no location in space or time. It has the ability to postulate and to perceive. This is
a definition of what something isn't doing, isn't being and isn't having. Second: The Static is capable of considerations,
postulates and opinions - second axiom. Third axiom: Space, energy, objects, form and time are the results of considerations
made and/or agreed upon or not by the static and are perceived solely because the static considers that it can perceive them.
|Axiom 4 -||Space is a viewpoint of dimension.|
|Axiom 5 -||Energy consists of postulated particles in space.|
|Axiom 6 -||Objects consist of grouped particles and solids.|
|Axiom 7 -||Time is basically a postulate that space
and particles will persist.|
|Axiom 8 -||The
apparency of time is the change of position of particles in space.|
|Axiom 9 -||Change is the primary manifestation of time.|
|Axiom 10-||The highest purpose in this universe is the creation of an
|Axiom 11-||The considerations resulting
in conditions of existence are four-fold.|
|(a)||AS-IS-NESS is the condition of
immediate creation without persistence, and is the condition of existence which exists at the moment of creation and the moment
of destruction, and is different from other considerations in that it does not contain survival.|
(b) ALTER-IS-NESS is the
consideration which introduces change and therefore, time and
|(b)||ALTER-IS-NESS is the consideration which introduces change and therefore, time and persistence into an
AS-IS NESS to obtain persistency.|
|(c)||IS-NESS is an apparency
of existence brought about by the continuous alteration of an AS-IS-NESS. This is called, when agreed upon, Reality.|
|(d)||NOT-IS-NESS is the effort to handle IS-NESS by reducing its
condition through the use of force. It is an apparency and cannot entirely vanquish an IS-NESS.|
|Axiom 12-||The primary condition of any universe is
that two spaces, energies or objects must not occupy the same space, when this condition is violated, a perfect duplicate,
the apparency of any universe or any part thereof is nulled.|
|Axiom 13-||The cycle of action of the physical universe IS; create, survive (persist), destroy.|
|Axiom 14-||Survival is accomplished by ALTER-IS-NESS
and NOT-IS - NESS, by which is gained the persistency known as time.|
|Axiom 15-||Creation is accomplished by the postulation of an AS-IS NESS.|
|Axiom 16-||Complete destruction is accomplished by the
postulation of the AS-IS-NESS of any existence and the parts thereof.|
|Axiom 17-||The static, having postulated AS-IS-NESS, then practices ALTER- IS-NESS, and so achieves
the apparency of IS-NESS and so obtains Reality.|
|Axiom 18-||The static, in practising NOT-IS-NESS, brings about the persistence of unwanted existence's, and so brings
about unreality, which includes forgetfulness, unconsciousness and other undesirable states.|
|Axiom 19-||Bringing the static to view, AS-IS, any condition devaluates
the static to create a perfect duplicate causes the vanishment of any existence or part thereof. A perfect duplicate is an
additional creation of the object, its energy and space, in its own space, in its own time, using its own energy. This violates
the condition that two objects must not occupy the same space, and causes a vanishment of the object.|
|Axiom 21-||Understanding is composed of affinity, reality
and communication. (Abbreviated ARC.)|
22-||The practice of NOT-IS-NESS reduces understanding.|
|Axiom 23-||The static has the capability of total knowingness. Total knowingness would consist
of total ARC.|
ARC would bring about the vanishment of all mechanical conditions of existence.|
|Axiom 25-||Affinity is a scale of attitudes which falls away from the co existence of static,
through the interposition's of distance and energy, to create identity, down to close proximity but mystery. By practice of
IS-NESS (Beingness) and NOT-IS NESS (refusal to Be) individuation progresses from the Knowingness of complete identification
down through the introduction of more and more distance and less and less duplication, through Lookingness, Emotingness, Effortingness,
Thinkingness, Symbolizingness, Eatingness, Sexingness and so through to Not-Knowingness (Mystery). Until the point of Mystery
is reached, some communication is possible, but even at Mystery an attempt to communicate continues. Here we have, in the
case of an individual, a gradual falling away from the belief that one can assume a complete Affinity down to the conviction
that all is a complete Mystery. Any individual is somewhere on this Know to-Mystery scale. The original Chart of Human Evaluation
was the Emotion section of this scale.|
26-||Reality is the agreed-upon apparency of existence.|
|Axiom 27-||An actuality can exist for one individually, but when it is agree with by others,
it can then be said to be a Reality. The anatomy of Reality is contained in IS-NESS, which is composed of AS-IS- NESS and
ALTER-IS-NESS. IS-NESS is an apparency, it is not an Actuality. The Actuality is AS-IS NESS altered so as to obtain a persistency.
Unreality is the consequence and apparency of the practice of NOT-IS-NESS.|
|Axiom 28-||Communication is the consideration and action of impelling an impulse or particle
from source- point across a distance to receipt-point, with the intention of bringing into being at the receipt- point a duplication
of that which emanated from the source- point. The formula of Communication is: Cause, Distance, Effect, with Attention and
Duplication. The component parts of Communication are Consideration, Intention, Attention, Cause, Source-point, Distance,
Effect, Receipt-point, Duplication, the Velocity of the impulse or particle, Nothingness or Somethingness. A non communication
consists of Barriers. Barriers consist of Space, Interposition's (such as walls and screens of fast- moving particles), and
Time. A communication, by definition, does not need to be two-way. When a communication is returned, the formula is repeated,
with the receipt-point now becoming a source-point and the former source- point now becoming a receipt-point.|
|Axiom 29-||In order to cause an AS-IS-NESS to persist, one must
assign other authorship to the creation than his own. Otherwise his view of it would cause its vanishment. Any space, energy,
form, object, individual or physical universe condition can exist only when an alteration has occurred of the original AS
IS-NESS so as to prevent a casual view from vanishing it. In other words, anything which is persisting must contain a -lie
so that the original consideration is not completely duplicated.|
|Axiom 30-||The general rule of auditing is that anything which is unwanted and yet persists must be thoroughly viewed,
at which time it will vanish. If only partially viewed, its intensity, at least will decrease.|
|Axiom 31-||Goodness and Badness, Beautifulness and Ugliness, are alike considerations and have
no other basis than opinion.|
which is not directly observed tends to persist.|
33-||Any AS-IS-NESS which is altered by NOT-IS-NESS (by force) tends to persist.|
|Axiom 34-||Any IS-NESS, when altered by force, tends to persist.|
|Axiom 35-||The ultimate truth is a static. A static has no mass, meaning, mobility, no wave-length,
no time, no location in space, no space. This has the technical name of "Basic Truth".|
|Axiom 36-||A lie is a second postulate, statement or condition designed to mask a primary postulate
which is permitted to remain. Neither truth nor a lie is a motion or alteration of a particle from one position to another.
A lie is a statement that a particle having moved did not move, or a statement that a particle, not having moved, did move.
The basic lie is that a consideration which was made was not made or that it was different.|
|Axiom 37-||When a primary consideration is altered but still exists, persistence is achieved
for the altering consideration. All persistence depends on the Basic Truth, but the persistence is of the altering consideration,
for the Basic Truth has neither persistence nor impersistence.|
|Axiom 38-||1. Stupidity is the unknowness of consideration.|
2. Mechanical Definition: Stupidity is unknowness
of time, place, form and event.
1. Truth is the exact consideration.
2. Truth is the exact time, place, form and event.
Thus, we see that failure to discover Truth brings about stupidity. Thus, we see that the discovery of Truth would bring about
an AS-IS-NESS by actual experiment. Thus, we see that an ultimate truth would have no time, place, form or event. Thus, then,
we perceive that we can achieve a persistence only when we mask a truth. Lying is an alteration on time, place, form or event.
Lying becomes ALER-IS-NESS, becomes Stupidity. (The blackness of cases is an accumulation of the case's own or another's lies.)
Anything which persists must avoid AS-IS NESS. Thus, anything, to persist, must contain a lie.
|Axiom 39-||Life poses problems for its own solution.|
|Axiom 40-||Any problem, to be a problem, must contain a lie, if it were truth, it would unmock.|
"unsolvable problem" would have the greatest persistence. It would also contain the greatest number of altered facts. To make
a problem, one must introduce ALTER-IS-NESS.
41-||That into which ALTER-IS-NESS is introduced becomes a problem.|
|Axiom 42-||MEST (matter, energy, space, time) persists because it is a problem.|
It is a problem
because it contains ALTER-IS-NESS.
is the primary source of untruth.|
Time states the untruth of consecutive considerations.
|Axiom 44-||Theta ( the static) has no location in matter, energy, space or time. It is capable
|Axiom 45-||Theta can consider itself
to be placed, at which moment it becomes placed, and to that degree a problem.|
|Axiom 46-||Theta can become a problem by its considerations, but then becomes MEST. A problem
is to some degree MEST. MEST is a problem.|
can resolve problems.|
|Axiom 48-||Life is a game wherein
theta as the static solves the problems of theta as MEST.|
|Axiom 49-||To solve any problem it is only necessary to become theta, the solver, rather than theta, the problem.|
|Axiom 50-||Theta as MEST must contain considerations which are
|Axiom 51-||Postulates and live communication
not being MEST and being senior to MEST can accomplish change in MEST without bringing about a persistence of MEST. Thus,
auditing can occur.|
|Axiom 52-||MEST persists and solidifies
to the degree that it is not granted life.|
stable datum is necessary to the alignment of data.|
54-||A tolerance of confusion and an agreed-upon stable datum on which to align the data in a confusion are at once
necessary for a sane reaction on the eight dynamics. This defines sanity.|
|Axiom 55-||The cycle of action is a consideration. Create, survive, destroy, the cycle of action
accepted by the G.E. (the genetic entity) is only a consideration which can be changed by the thetan making a new consideration
or different action cycles.|

Corollary: Chaos brings disorder to theta.

Control: positive postulating, which is intention, and the execution thereof.
that which permits the experience of mass and pressure.
58-||Intelligence and judgement are measured by the ability to evaluate relative importance's.|
ability to evaluate importance's and unimportance's is the highest faculty of logic.
Corollary: identification is
a monotone assignment of importance.
Corollary: identification is the inability to evaluate differences in time,
location, form, composition or importance.
The majority of these axioms are correct. It is good to know them; they are a crucial part of the technology.
The majority of the Logic's and Pre Logic's are incorrect.
Although I will be coming back to the Axioms later, correcting them, it is good to go ahead and learn
them as they are. They certainly provide ample opportunity for a lot of thought.
The next thing we should take up are the Factors. The Factors are a descriptive
statement of the creation of the physical universe and the creation and existence of individual universes. In some instances,
they conflict with the Axioms, but the majority of them are true.
The Factors are:
|1.||Before the beginning was
a Cause and the entire purpose of the Cause was the creation of effect.|
|2.||In the beginning and forever is the decision and the decision is TO BE.|
|3.||The first action of beingness is to assume a viewpoint|
|4.||The second action of beingness is to extend from
the viewpoint, points to view, which are dimension points.|
|5.||Thus, there is space created, for the definition of space is: viewpoint of dimension. And the purpose
of a dimension point is space and a point to view.|
|6.||The action of a dimension point is reaching and with-drawing.|
|7.||And from the viewpoint to the dimension points there are connection and interchange. Thus, new dimension
points are made. Thus, there is communication.|
|8.||And thus, there is light.|
thus, there is energy.|
|10.||And thus, there is life.|
|11.||But there are other viewpoints and these
viewpoints out-thrust points to view. And there comes about an interchange amongst viewpoints; but the interchange is never
otherwise than in terms of exchanging dimension points.|
|12.||The dimension point can be moved by the viewpoint, for the viewpoint, in addition to creative ability and consideration,
possesses volition and potential independence of action; and the viewpoint, viewing dimension points, can change in relation
to its own or other dimension points or viewpoints. Thus, comes about all the fundamentals there are to motion.|
|13.||The dimension points are each and every one,
whether large or small, solid. And they are solid solely because the viewpoints say they are solid.|
|14.||Many dimension points combine into larger gases, fluids or solids. Thus,
there is matter. But the most valued point is admiration, and admiration is so strong its absence alone permits persistence.|
|15.||The dimension point can be different from
other dimension points and thus can possess an individual quality. And many dimension points can possess a similar quality,
and others can possess a similar quality unto themselves. Thus, comes about the quality of classes of matter.|
|16.||The viewpoint can combine dimension points
into forms and the forms can be simple or complex and can be at different distances from the viewpoints and so there can be
combinations of form. And the forms are capable of motion and the viewpoints are capable of motion and so there can be motion
|17.||And the opinion of the
viewpoint regulates the consideration of the forms, their stillness or their motion, and these considerations consist of assignment
of beauty or ugliness to the forms and these considerations alone are art.|
|18.||It is the opinion of the viewpoints that some of these forms should endure. Thus, there is survival.|
|19.||And the viewpoint can never perish; but the
form can perish.|
|20.||And the many viewpoints,
interacting, become dependent upon one another's forms and do not choose to distinguish completely the ownership of dimension
points and so comes about a dependency upon the dimension points and upon the other viewpoints.|
|21.||From this comes a consistency of viewpoint of the inter-action of dimension
points and this, regulated, is TIME.|
there are universes.|
|23.||The universes, then, are
three in number: the universe created by one viewpoint, the universe created by every other viewpoint, the universe created
by the mutual action of viewpoints which is agreed to be upheld - the physical universe.|
|24.||And the viewpoints are never seen. And the viewpoints consider more and
more that the dimension points are valuable, And the viewpoints try to become the anchor points and forget that they can create
more points and space and forms. Thus, comes about scarcity. And the dimension points can perish and so the viewpoints assume
that they, too, can perish.|
|25.||Thus, comes about death.|
|26.||The manifestation of pleasure and pain, of
thought, emotion and effort, of thinking, of sensation, of affinity, reality, communication, of behaviour and being are thus
derived and the riddles of our universe are apparently contained and answered herein.|
|27.||There is beingness, but Man believes there is only becomingness.|
|28.||The resolution of any problem posed hereby
is the establishment of viewpoints and dimension points, the betterment of condition and concourse amongst dimension points,
and, thereby, viewpoints, and the remedy of abundance of scarcity in all things, pleasant or ugly, by the rehabilitation of
the ability of the viewpoint to assume points to view and create and uncreate, neglect, start, change and stop dimension points
of any kind at the determinism of the viewpoint. Certainty in all three universes must be regained, for certainty, not data,
|29.||In the opinion of the
viewpoint, any beingness, any thing is better than no thing, any effect is better than no effect, any universe better than
no universe, any particle better than no particle, but the particle of admiration is best of all.|
|30.||And above these things there might be speculation only. And below these
things there is the playing of the game. But these things which are written here Man can experience and know. And some may
care to teach these things and some may desire to employ them to make individuals and organisations more able and so give
to Earth a culture of which we can be proud.|
There are a number of errors throughout the particular Factors I will take up at another time, but likewise
with the Axioms, it is good that this information be understood. It is inherently a part of applying the technology of Scientology.
If you have great difficulty with #29 and #30, you don't have to push yourself over the edge because they are both quite ludicrous
and highly incorrect.
like to take up the Classification, Gradation and Awareness Chart of Levels of Scientology. There is a minus scale that a
number of people are on. As far as what is published, it goes down to -34 levels. There are 13 lower ones. So, we will take
it from the bottom.
|Levels of Awareness|
-48 Awareness of religion
Awareness of evil
-46 Awareness of survival
-45 Awareness of money
-44 Awareness of groups
Awareness of things
-42 Awareness of people
-41 Awareness of ideas
-40 Awareness of self
Awareness of love
-38 Awareness of fortune
-37 Awareness of luck
-36 Awareness of fate or destiny
Awareness of chance
Those were not published or/and perhaps not known, though I doubt it, by Scientologists. I might add
that reason- for them not publishing them: There is a remark made on a tape that there are probably a dozen lower levels,
and (probably the reason is obvious)that these were not published was because they are certainly not going to flatter people
to indicate that these awarenesses which the majority of people are walking around in, are junior to most things that people
consider bad. People have these things backward, which makes these lower awarenesses look like North when actually they are
very South. This is a problem caused by harmonics, where something gets dense and then lighter, dense and then lighter, a
person's general direction can get confused and therefore, these bottom awareness levels, people seek them as the greatest
thing going and they actually think that that is what is going on and it isn't. -34 is Unexistence. A person would have to
be aware of not even existing at all to fall into those lower awarenesses.- They would have to be aware of other non existence.
This is supposedly a very low state according to Scientologists, however, it is a very high state for most individuals. Anyway,
let us continue with the minus awareness scale:
- 9 Suffering
- 8 Despair
- 7 Ruin
- 6 Effect
- 5 Fear of Worsening
We have now covered the minus awareness levels and
that is where 96% of humanity is. On only 4% of humanity will we find in the remaining higher states of awareness. People
can be talked with back and forth and moved up and down this scale, you can also erase engrams off of people and move them
up these scales. An engram is a mental image picture of a previous moment of pain and unconsciousness. I will be describing
and defining each of these lower minus awareness scales later in this book with each of them having the unusual ingredient
of being able to define each one in terms of power, in other words, power and awareness are synonymous in the English language.
All wisdom has been very cleverly cluttered into language itself so that the wisdom would not be lost within the cross definition
of words. Proceeding up the scale:
- 4 Need of Change
In a recent survey (1980), Forbes magazine found that 3 of
the people in American want change. 97% don't.
- 3 Demand for Improvement
- 2 Hope
I must pause here to remark that this has to be the most prevalently marketed and clever traps around. Hope
is a substitute for knowing anything, or understanding anything. There are a lot of people just hoping. One should understand
as far as an overall category of awareness that that is what I'm talking about when I say 96% of the people are on the minus
scale. A person can be higher or lower than their overall condition or position on various subjects, like a person could be
in hope on the economy and yet his overall viewpoint on life would be elation. This would be your happy individual. So, just
because you see a lot of hope going on certain selected areas doesn't mean that a person is aware of hope.
- 1 Help
And that completes what I would call the Human Range.
On these lower four levels of awareness you can apply Scientology immediately. If they are lower than - 4 Need of Change,
you can bring a person up to that occasionally with group processing in Scientology. If Need of Change, you start by repairing
a persons life using what is known as a Prep Check. It is a list of buttons (questions) which you clean off (get all answers
to) and this cleans off a person's upsets by restoring cyclic communication, cyclic affinity, cyclic reality and cyclic understanding.
These cycles have broken down and the vitality of an individual has not been restored after a loss or an upset. In doing a
Life Repair you fix all these up and a person can attain the state of Demand for Improvement. Through Recall Processes you
can restore Hope, through the use of Dianetics you can bring a person up to being aware of Help and that would complete your
On Grade 0, Communication
Release, the awareness level of Recognition is attained.
On Grade I, after the problems of an individual, not only the ones he is aware of, but the ones he isn't
aware of, have all been eradicated, he is aware of communication and perception.
After a person's mishaps at being cause or effect are clarified on Grade II,
then a person attains the state of Orientation, Understanding and Enlightenment.
On Grade III, where you are cleaning up major upsets on changes and the subject
of change itself, a person becomes aware of Energy, Adjustment, their body, space, their connection with the physical universe.
The awareness levels of Prediction, Activity and
Production are clarified on Grade IV where Service Facsimiles (which are people's attempts to make other people wrong and
whatever type fixed habit patterns they have there) are eradicated.
The next levels of awareness are Result, Correction and Ability. These are obtainable through the use
of Expanded Dianetics which is specialised processing where the evil impulses of an individual are erased.
The next levels of awareness are Purposes, Clearing
and Realisation which are attained on Power Processing.
Awareness of Conditions is the next one which occurs. That can occur on Power Plus or before, also known
Through the use of Grade
VI on which auditing of timeless, installed habit patterns and urges within the individual are addressed, a person becomes
aware of their whole track, that is, their personal recordings of their experiences through time, all of it. That may or may
not bring about the 20th level of awareness which is Existence. If it doesn't, the Clearing Course will. Normally the correct
Clearing Course erases the fundamental core of the Reactive Mind, which is certainly not pictures. It floats timeless for
The published materials
which are supposedly confidential of the Church of Scientology in this area are incorrect and are unfortunately just an average
of what 42 people found on a research project from September 3rd, 1965 through February 2nd, 1966. Hubbard asserted that he
was already Clear and he didn't go through this particular type of programming, when he actually did. Those people all came
up with different material, I personally made four different suggestions at the time which were verified by the people researching
the Clearing Course. I just finally gave up contributing to the research because the materials appeared to be in such poor
order. None of the 42 had decent recall or scientific research data that they were working out of. I suppose the final sentence
in this matter is that the earlier beginning to the materials only exists in Hubbard's personal private safe. So, anyway,
if the correct materials were ever issued and published properly, they would produce a State of Existence for one as an operating
No one has ever tried that
within the Church. Of course, I have tried it dozens of times on dozens of people. It works quite well. If you issue the proper
materials, people attain the proper state.
Anyway, a person becomes aware of Existence after that and goes on and does what is known as OT I which brings a
person back into communication with the environment. They become aware of themselves as a source-point as an individual, not
so much a point, but more an origin of life and themselves.
On OT II one attains the ability to confront the whole track, likewise these materials are incorrect
as published by the Church. The proper materials not only produce the ability to confront the whole track but also the ability
to perceive the entire whole track. So, OT II properly done, a person produces immaculate recall and perception.
If the 21st level of awareness of Source isn't evident
at that point then it will come in at OT III where there is a return of full self-determinism and freedom from overwhelm.
As in the Clearing Course and OT II, on OT III the earlier beginning to this particular set of materials, the later ending
and the dates are incorrect. However, the majority of it as published by the Church is correct.
OT IV doesn't produce any different awareness other than certainty
of self as a being which is a higher awareness state.
OT V creates a refamiliarity of a thetan distinctly separate from the physical universe.
OT VI extends a person's ability to move out of their
body and travel freely with some degree of perception throughout the physical universe and it extends their ability to influence
other individuals and the universe of other individuals and extends their ability to cause effects in the physical universe.
On OT VII a person becomes aware of Power, that's
an awareness level, and of freedom. It rehabilitates a person's ability to project intention.
At OT VIII Freedom is the awareness level, here a person's
ability to be cause knowingly over thought, life, form, matter, energy, space and time on a subjective and objective, also
other people's subjective, basis is what is achieved there. The Church doesn't sell OT VIII or market it. There is little
to no research or paperwork, even in the files of L. Ron Hubbard on this level. The freedom from the inability to be totally
free and at total cause as a being gets handled on this level.
This particular set of materials has been worked out, tested, and proved. It is no part of the existing
Church but I suppose the whole subject of Scientology, is no part of the Church.
The two (Scientology and the Church) are not only incompatible but are at
very cross purposes with each other, to say the least.
So, that is overall the awareness characteristics, the levels on what is known as the Grade Chart of
The next thing I'd
like to take up is a broad subject called understanding. I'm covering a lot of philosophy while explaining the technology
of Scientology and I have to do that because there is a fundamental amount of philosophy involved with this technology. One
needs to know it or one cannot apply the technology. There is a separate, short chapter in this book on philosophy.
People are as happy and successful as they are able
to communicate and understand. People seek understanding, nations seek understanding. People seek understanding, nations seek
understanding. Understanding is the process and action and goal which life is engaged upon and striving towards. Understanding
something well, means that you can predict it, and being able to predict it, you can control it, and being able to control
it, you can either reduce or increase its effect on you, as you so desire. Thus, the more understanding you have, the more
predictable your life will be, the more free you will be to live and win.
Problems are made up of confusions, unprediction and unawareness. Understanding reduces
confusion, increases prediction and awareness. By understanding a person has fewer problems and a better life, by increasing
ones understanding one should have a proportional reduction of problems and a proportional increase in living, or livingness,
if you will.
If you understand
everything about a problem it is not a problem. Every problem contains elements that are not understood. Any problem can be
solved by locating and understanding these elements which were not previously understood.
The Reactive Mind lowers ones ability to live because it lowers ones understanding.
Understanding is made up of three things: Affinity,
Reality and Communication.
is a consideration of distance. High affinity is closeness; low affinity is greater distance. "Love" could be described as
high affinity; "hate" is the desire for less affinity. Affinity is a gradient (relative) quantity. The greatest affinity would
be beingness where there would be no distance between the two terminals. The introduction of more and more distance would
decrease affinity more and more. So, two dots close together (._.) would be high affinity; two dots farther apart (._____.)
would be lower affinity. So, the closer you are, to whatever you want to understand, whether it be a person, problem or thing,
the greater your understanding will be. This is covered with much more precision in Axiom 25. Thecloser you are, the
more willing you are to be near to something, then the greater your understanding will be; conversely,the farther
you are from it, the less you will understand it. People are quite aware of the affinity that others extend towards them.
Reality: People have been going off the deep end
about this for thousands of years by rigidly trying to find out about everything. I'd like to just treat it in a light way,
at this time. Reality is basically agreement. If you can agree with that which you seek to understand, then your
understanding will increase. It might worth noting here that all a case is is disagreements, in other words, all a Reactive
Mind is, is a person's disagreements.
This third part is Communication. Communication is the consideration and action of impelling an impulse or particle from
source point across a distance to a receipt point, with the intention of bringing into being at the receipt point a duplication
of that which emanated from the source point. This is covered in greater detail in Axiom 28. That is the mechanical communication
formula. Communication can exist senior to mechanics and certainly does. In life, communication has been described as a universal
solvent. The most effective communication is that communication which is best duplicated.
These three components of understanding are abbreviated:
Affinity, Reality, Communication
Some people use the same
amount of ARC for everything that they encounter in life. This is very ineffective. One should be able to change the amount
and type of ARC that he uses to communicate with different people and things. Communicating with ones wife, boss, President
or neighbour with the same amount of ARC is disastrously ineffective. One should be able to vary the amount of ARC one uses
in each individual life situation in order to best understand that situation.
When there is a sudden drop in ARC, known as an ARC Break, it can be remedied
by putting A and R back in. Increasing two of these components brings back up the third. Example: there is an argument and
a sudden drop in ARC. This can be patched up by talking (communicating) about an agreeable subject (the weather, movies) with
an expression of a little affinity. Of the three, communication is the most important, in that, it is the doingness, the activity
A person is to some degree
in Affinity, Reality and Communication with his body, his mind, the physical universe, himself and other beings.
What is a man? A man is composed of three parts:
a body, a mind and a soul. The body is a carbon-oxygen machine which the person uses to communicate and perceive from and
The mind is a physical thing
located in matter, energy, space and time which contains electrical masses of energy and significance's.
The soul is the person, the individual, that which
decides, is aware, perceives and feels. A person doesn't have a soul, heis the soul, People who
say that they "have a soul", or refer to "their soul" should generally be asked, "ho are you?"
The 8 Dynamics: The goal of all life is survival and the individual
is to some degree surviving in all the areas of existence. The areas in which each individual is seeking to survive, to some
degree, are known as the Dynamics, which are defined as urges towards which one is striving.
2. Sex, family
5. All life forms
6. The physical universe
8. God, Infinity, Supreme Being
Other dynamics are listed in the Dianetics and Scientology Technical Dictionary and then there are upper
dynamics that are far senior to anything listed here, they will be covered later in this book.
Everyone is to some degree surviving on all of these 8 dynamics.
A person's condition can be measured by the number of dynamics he is surviving on. A person who can be cause over and handle
the 1st dynamic, can move on to the second and be successful at it, and can then, one by one, go up to #8.
If one does not follow this ladder of expanding spheres
of causation, one will have a much more difficult time of it and will probably fail. By skipping the first two dynamics and
attempting to be cause over the third dynamic Communism has doomed itself to failure. Yogis, mystics and various Eastern religions
by skipping the first six dynamics and trying to survive only on the 7th dynamic are on the whole quite unsuccessful. The
better solution to any problem is that which will offer the most survival to the greatest number of dynamics. The best solution
would offer infinite survival for all dynamics.
Severe failures on a dynamic lead to an inversion:
|1.||Failures on the 1st lead
to extreme attention on the 8th. (The individual lives of religious fanatics are poor.)|
|2.||Failures on the 2nd lead to extreme attention on the 7th. (Examine the
sexual and family lives of artists and mystics.)|
|3.||Failures on the 3rd lead to extreme attention on the 6th. (This is the one America is on. It wants lots of physical
things - cars and so forth because of its inability to handle groups. Not only other countries, but also groups within the
U.S. and U.S. itself as a group. So, all their attention goes on matter, energy, space and time, money. Note their inability
to operate in a co-operative fashion.)|
on the 4th lead to extreme attention on the 5th. (Ask any extreme pet lover how they really feel about mankind and make sure
when you do that you have a door close by, possibly a trash can, you may be needing both.)|
Now, I would like to take up the Tone Scale. This
is covered in great detail in 300,000 words in a book entitled Science of Survival by Mr. Hubbard.
The emotional Tone Scale, starting from the top, in the human
You could draw a line under these and in these ranges a person is more responsible, cause, winning, perceptive,
happy and analytical. Now, under this line a person is irresponsible, effect, losing and reactive. The way that scale looks
1.1 Covert Hostility
Emotions above 2.0 on the Tone Scale tend to increase and go up tone toward greater survival; those emotions
below 2.0 tend to go down tone towards succumbing. Those above 2.0 are creative and further Life; those below are destructive
and tend toward Death. So, they are both exponential in nature, or compounding in nature. Anything below this line is going
to end up towards Death; anything 2.0 or above the line is going to end up enthusiastic.
Parts of the Tone Scale are characterised by a desire to change and others
by a desire to maintain the status quo:
The Tone Scale measures relative degrees of survival.
The Tone Scale measures relative degrees of affinity.
Tone Scale measures relative degrees of reality.
The Tone Scale measures relative degrees of communication.
Scale measures relative degrees of responsibility.
Ones general, overall position on the Tone Scale is not always fixed; it varies. Falling in love can
put a person at 4.0; a death of someone close can put a person into .05, Apathy.
Ones tone can vary per dynamic or subject, in other words, a person could
be at boredom on sex and anger on politics. People do go all over the Tone Scale depending on the subject, and their tone
and mood at the time. To communicate effectively with a person and bring him up tone, one can assume a tone that is a tone
above his position on the scale. You will be cause over that person. To communicate effectively and bring a person down the
Tone Scale, one should assume a tone that is a tone below theirs. You will become effect of that person.
People go down the Tone Scale only because their
higher toned communication was unsuccessful. It didn't get through, so they try lower and lower tones until their communications
are acknowledged and produce a result. People of different tone levels that communicate at length (husband-wife, brother-sister)
generally tend to equalise their differences in tone. An enthusiastic husband and an angry wife, after 20 years of marriage
will both assume a tone of boredom.
By associating with higher tone people than oneself, one can raise ones tone; by associating with people of a lower tone
than ones, one will bring oneself down the Tone Scale.
People usually have one basic emotion that they most commonly express. This is one way of placing a person
on the Tone Scale. Possibly a better way is to put an individual under high stress, then you will find out what their true
Tone Scale position is.
the level of social machinery is usually very high on the Tone Scale, 4.0 - 3.0, but the people are actually much lower, usually
below 2.0. Individuals above 2.0 on the Tone Scale are very responsible and at the very least, quite rare.
Perhaps a greater problem then position, being low
on the Tone Scale, and being low on the Tone Scale is certainly a problem, is the tendency to become fixed at one position
on the Tone Scale and becoming inflexible in adaptation to other tone levels when it would be advantageous to change tone.
Being stuck at Enthusiasm is just as ineffective as being stuck at Apathy. Through Scientology technology a person can gain
the freedom to use whatever the situation calls for, and thus ones overall tone does improve.
By locating a person's position on the Tone Scale, one can
predict very accurately how that person will act.
The next area I'd like to go over is The Anatomy of Confusion.
Confusion is characterised by uncertainty, stupidity and insecurity. In this universe,
confusion is random motion. A confusion is only a confusion as long as all the particles are in motion. A confusion is only
a confusion so long as no factor is clearly defined and understood. By knowing the anatomy of confusions, one can decrease
them, that is, become more intelligent. Education fails because of confusions. Behind every failure, there is a confusion
that wasn't stood up to and taken apart.
In order to lower the confusion in the random motion of particles, one should select one particle from which to
locate the motion of the other particles. A confusing motion can be understood by conceiving one thing to be motionless. If
there are 10 phones ringing, pick one up and answer it. By selecting one datum, one factor, one particle in a confusion, the
confusion continues but the thing selected becomes a stable datum for the remainder.
All confusions, no matter how big, are composed of data, factors, or particles.
They do have pieces. Grasping one piece lowers the confusion level. Grasp one piece and locate it thoroughly. See how the
other pieces function in relation to it until the confusion is solved in its entirety. The piece that you grasp becomes a
certainty that is predict relation to it until the confusion is solved in its entirety. The piece that you grasp becomes a
certainty that is predictable; the remainder is unpredictable, uncertain. The ordering of confusions is a process of picking
one element of it and making that a predictable, stable thing that you know about and using this element of stability to stabilise
the remaining random elements. The remaining elements are stabilised by observing their relationship to the first stable point.
Certainty could be defined as a lack of confusion.
Intelligence is the ability to handle a confusion.
Security is attained by bringing order to a confusion.
Instead of ordering confusions, some people depend
on -luck, uncontrolled chance. Depending on luck is abandoning control, that's Apathy.
Because of the great quantity of uncertain, stupid control that is extant
in society, some people are inclined to think that control is a bad thing. Control is not a bad thing. People that say that
control is bad are saying that industrial, aeroplane and automobile accidents are good. Control is necessary if one is to
bring order to confusions.
control is positive, certain, predictable; bad control is an attempt, but it is not really control - it is uncertain, unpredictable.
One either controls things or one does not. One must be able to control things, his body, his mind, his thoughts to some degree
in order to accomplish anything.
A confusion is an uncontrolled randomness. People who exert some control of that randomness handle confusions,
instead of confusions handling them. People who do not exert control over confusions breed more confusions.
When one becomes master of confusions, ones attention
is freed for constructive activity. When one is surrounded by confusions and does not handle them, he will develop a destructive
attitude in living because of his desire to destroy the confusions around him.
Now I would like to discuss Stopping a Confusion.
Confusion is held ineffective with an ordering datum, that
is, a Stable Datum. Examples are the dictionary, gravity, -me Tarzan, you Jane, and the rising and setting of the sun. One
handles the confusion of standing in the rain with the stable datum of opening an umbrella, or of going inside, or with holding
a newspaper over ones head, etc. There are many stable data. A stable datum is that which stops a confusion and solves a confusion.
|Example:||After an argument with his mother-in-law, a man is confused and stops his confusion
with a stable datum, the decision that "mother's-in-law are evil". This, whether right or wrong, orders the confusion. When
the man gets into trouble and a woman helps him out, then the original confusion returns to him because the stable datum has
been shown to be invalid.|
studying the data in universities for 10 years about the various problems of existence and the world and solving this confusion
with the stable datum of "Nothing can be done about these things but study them and speculate", an educated person meets someone
who is capable of understanding and action and he demonstrates that something can be done, thus the first man's stable datum
that resolved his confusion is now shaken and he will feel confused by that person.|
Seeing the falsity of a stable datum that was used
in the past brings the confusion of the past up to present time.
One can have many friends by accepting and acknowledging their stable data; you lose friends by devaluating
and not accepting their stable data; you loase friends by devaluating and not accepting their stable data. You can confuse
and literally kill people by invalidating their major stable data - it will bring their big confusions up to present time
upon them. The most decent, ethical thing one can do when people offer their stable data is to simply acknowledge them.
Stable data aren't necessarily true - they are simply
adopted. When an old stable datum can be seen to be untrue and the old confusion comes up to the present, a new stable datum
must be adopted, or the old stable datum will be put back in place.
Some stable data are more effective than others. Scientology technology itself is a somewhat effective
stable datum for solving confusions about life.
I'd like to now take up Control.
An executive controls more than a workman; a wealthy man controls more than a poor man.
People who say that control is bad are saying that accidents
People who try to control,
don't control; attempted control is not control. One controls or one does not.
There is no such thing as bad control; one doesn't control but simply tries
and then labels this "bad control".
The anatomy of control is Start, Change, and Stop. One must be able to do all three of these to control.
Life consists of Cycles of Action (Start,
The apparent cycle
of action for the Physical Universe is Create-Survive Destroy.
People in good condition do not resent good, positive control and can administer good, positive control
to people and objects. People in poor condition resent casual directions, and are not able to handle people and objects. So,
these people are inefficient and do have difficulty in life.
If you don't control a car, you will end up in a ditch. The ability to Start, Change and Stop ones body,
ones activities and one environment - this is their ability to control.
If you don't control a machine, like getting angry, it controls you. Control over
ones Reactive Mind would stop it from controlling you.
The ability to make stable data is the ability to stop; the ability to control is the ability to order
Incompetence and inefficiency
are both the inability to start, change and stop things.
Some people are stuck in starting things. They do little, make lots of plans and talk enthusiastically
about big schemes.
are stuck in change. They must keep everything going. They do not like new ideas or new machinery.
Some people are stuck on stop and will try to stop everything.
Artists start things, which leads to a creative society.
Business people change things which leads to an enduring
Military and policemen
stop things which leads to a destructive society.
The inability to control which results in confusion and insanity is contagious.
To be happy, one must be able to control his environment which
includes the inability's of others.
Control is not the answer to everything. One needs barriers to have a game and to be happy.
One must not let his area of control extend beyond his own
life too far; we must tend to our own house before tending others.
The willingness not to control is as important as control itself.
The next thing I'd like to discuss is Self-Determinism.
By learning and applying Scientology data and by
using Scientology processes, a person raises his self-determinism, his ability to determine his own existence. Self-determinism
is not selfish determinism for self determinism embraces responsibility. Self-determinism is the ability to play one side
of a game, it is the ability to act and be cause. By becoming more self-determined, by running ones own life, one can achieve
more of ones goals. Achievement can be translated into happiness.
Now I'd like to discuss Wins.
What is a win? A win is getting a goal and doing it.
If someone else gets your goals for you then you won't win much. You can do 10 times
as much in an area that you like as you can in one which you dislike.
People who do not set goals cannot win, they do not have any future. Goals imply future time. No goals
imply no future. People don't win because they do not set goals or they set unattainable goals giving themselves a loss.
To win, set a goal you can do and do it. Then, set
a larger goal.
Society often "forces"
one to set higher goals than he could naturally achieve. In order to "keep up" he attempts to do something he can't. This
may be the agreed-upon-fact in society, but it is certainly not the way to win.
|Winning requires:||1. Awareness and honesty about what you can do. |
2. Awareness that it doesn't matter where you
are on a gradient scale; it matter very much whether you are going up (winning) or going down (losing).
goals you can achieve.
4. Achieving them.
5. Setting new goals. That is all there is to it.
Most people aren't up to this simplicity. Most people
have -failed at some time in the past and have decided to quit and not set goals any more. Stuck back in that failure they
-just exist without a future, spending the years in front of a TV set. Conservatively speaking, about 90% of the U.S. is in
to talk about Games next.
require barriers, freedoms and goals. They may require players or a player.
The game of Life uses the physical universe as a barrier. Matter is a barrier (walls,
mountains). Energy is a barrier (electricity, explosions). Space is a barrier (a man in New York can't meet a man in California).
Time is a barrier (one can't change yesterday or live tomorrow today).
Each person is in ARC with the physical universe. When he has an accident, that is
a physical injury, his ARC with the physical universe drops. By getting the person into communication with the physical universe
after he has been hurt, one can often turn the pain and the condition off significantly The best thing to do is to get the
person into ARC with you. This is known as an Assist . Anyone can do them without needing to know how they work. I know a
number of people who are critical and sceptical of Scientology, but whenever they have a headache turn on, they give themselves
an Assist and they like that very much.
An assist takes a person's attention off the loss and puts it on a win.
People have too many barriers because they don't know enough. If they
did know, they could predict and win. Here's what usually happens:
Person: ______?/lose ______?/lose ______?/lose ______?/Decision to Quit.
After enough losses a person will decide to quit his external game. Having quit playing an external game,
what does he do? Every person has a level of game that he likes to play at - more game than this level will confuse him, less
game than this level will cease to hold his interest. This is his level of randomity, the ratio of confusion to
order. The ideal state would be to be able to adjust to any level of randomity, but most people, unfortunately, because they
have Reactive Minds, are stuck at one level. To maintain this level after they have quit playing an external, objective game
out in life, people will start an internal game, they will start to play a game with themselves.
There are many ways to play a game with oneself because one
doesn't want to play or has decided not to play an external game. One can think, think, think; one can explore the realms
of the imagination. One can wonder about the pact, one can think about ones friends; one can worry about the future, and so
People that are highly
introspective and "reasonable" have already failed in life. There is not enough randomity to hold their interest in the present
or there is too much randomity for them to confront. So, they deny themselves from having any exterior game.
People don't allow themselves an external game because
they can't have one. They have lost, they have hurt others. They know they will lose, that external games
are too unpredictable, so they don't play them.
Where there are too many barriers, that is, too much challenge, too much unpredictability, too many losses,
a person is then unable to have or even be.
How to have a game: One must be able to be before one can do before
one can have.
Do, Have. In that order.
are thoroughly mixed up on this sequence. America by having things and doing things is trying to be something. That's backwards.
"Playing the role" to learn something or be something, like going through the motions of a housewife in order to be one, is
backwards. Acting beautiful, or glamorous, or charming won't make a person any of these things. Making love without being
in love won't advance you towards love. That's backwards. The cycle for games is BE-DO-HAVE. Those are also the components
of Experience, but that's not defined in Scientology, but I'll define it here. BE-DO-HAVE make up a triangle known as Experience.
This is a bit obvious that one would have to be before
one could do, and then one would have to do in order to have. Scientology enables a person to be and increases his ability
to do by raising his awareness and prediction. He is then able to have.
Play a game that you can be in, you can do in, so you can have in, in other words,
pick an agreeable gradient where you can comfortably be on. If it is being 20 feet from the opposite sex, well fine, do that.
Then try 19 feet. Give yourself wins, so you can have things that are predictable. Give yourself wins by picking predictable
things. Gradiently increase your ability to have a game.
In society, unfortunately, people play unpredictable games "by ear", people try to find love by doing,
people set high goals that they can't handle or have, and are unwilling to play a small game that they can have and handle.
It is the idea that keeping up with the lavish, uncontrolled and overwhelmed Jones's is something important. In processing,
a girl who had been sleeping with everyone in a frantic effort to "find love", discovered that her level of being, doing and
having was that of a mild kiss - anything beyond that was beyond her having it. By playing a game she could have and increasing
her game, she can now be and live. She isn't jumping gradients because of the Jones's. She is now satisfied and happy which
is more than one can say for the Jones's that she was trying to imitate.
Next I'd like to talk about something that is grossly misunderstood inside and outside
of Scientology, crudely called karma, and defined in Scientology as the Overt-Motivator Sequence.
|Overt Act:||An action or non-action that harms another dynamic and is - justified. Example: you hurt someone by hitting
them because they hit you. Your hitting them is the overt act and the - because they hit you is the justification.|
|Motivator:||(justification) An act received from any
dynamic and considered harmful, and is a justifier to commit overt acts.|
Man is basically good. When he harms another, he cuts down
his own survival because of this. If you commit overt acts, that is, hurt other people, then they will hurt you. Kids actually
do this. After Bill has hit Tom, he holds out his hand and asks Tom to hit him back so everything will be all right.
Why do we hurt other people and what happens when
Here's the sequence:
|1. Confusion |
2. Overt Act
3. Motivator, Justification
4. More Overt Acts
Withholds (not communicating about the overts)
7. Withdrawal from that area
This sequence is always present wherever anyone has
withdrawn from any area in life because he "didn't like it anymore", or "couldn't handle it". This why people quit school,
get divorces, move away from home and in many cases, die. Man is basically good and if he has been hurting others around him,
he will leave those people so he won't hurt them anymore. This sequence is always present when a person is highly critical
of someone. He either has overts on that person or someone that is like him.
This sequence is always present if a person has withholds, that is, doesn't like
to talk about various things. There are always overts if a person is justifying, in other words using "because" and explaining
why he has done what he has done. So, an indication of any part of this sequence means that all other parts of the sequence
have occurred. Motivators, justifications, withholds, criticism or withdrawal always indicate the existence of overt acts.
A person will continue pulling motivators, in other
words, bad things happening to him, "bad luck", as long as the overt is left unconfronted, as long as the person refuses to
take responsibility for what he has done.
People spend a fantastic amount of time justifying, trying to explain away what they have done. These justifications
just pull in more overts.
of other people and other things is a motivator for further overts that they have on that person or thing or on someone or
thing associated to that criticised.
An overt is NEVER justified. Confronting and taking responsibility for an overt is the only way of ridding oneself of it.
People justify in an attempt to attain a feeling that what they did was OK. People generally degrade and criticise that which
they have harmed. If they have harmed it enough, they leave.
This idea that everybody gets what is coming to them is overworked in the areas of literature, movies
and religion. Good acts do not justify bad acts.
People are critical of those things in others that are similar to the overts that they have and are committing.
Used car salesmen object to Scientology because "it's a racket", beatniks object to Scientology because "it's a personality
cult", unemployed people object to Scientology because "it doesn't work", and university professors object to Scientology
because "it is just vague, meaningless abstractions".
This is not an overriding, universal law; it's a mechanical sequence which can be processed out of people
to where they are no longer subject to it. In other words, there is a senior level of understanding and a person can rise
above this treadmill.
to go into Study now.
be present to study. There must be two terminals (you and that you learn from) and space in between them. Bypresent I
mean the person and his attention being there, not just his body being there. Beingness precedes doingness. One must be before
one can do.
follows the communication formula:
One should consider that he can study first, then
put his attention into study, and the. put intention into studying.
Study is the activity of understanding (ARC) data and significance's. It is the process of going from
a non- comprehension and confusion to (1) the attainment of the ability to duplicate (although most stop here, this is simply
mechanical and a mental trick), to (2) the ability to understand and comprehend, to (3) the subjective realisation and awareness
of knowing, to (4) the ability and willingness to apply and use what one has learned.
The first step is the duplication of data. This is the usual custom, but
it is not always necessary in learning. Governments "study" things instead of finding out about them. It is the activity to
fill time and delay doingness. The basic thing that is cutting down understanding, study and the ability to act is the Overt-Motivator
sequence, that is:
|1. Confusion (misunderstood word or symbol) |
2. Overt Acts (not
studying, not listening and criticising the subject).
3. Justification ("The teacher is just an idiot". He may be,
but it's still a justification.)
5. Withdrawal from study
By locating the misunderstood words, one can triple
ones ability in the area of study. One needn't do anything but find the words that one has misunderstood and look up their
meanings. You just make up a list and look them up.
The bypassed definition (misunderstood word or symbol) occurs right before you lost interest and/or things
started going bad. Example: a man gets confused half-way down a page and doesn't want to read anymore. He has bypassed a definition
of a word at the top of the page. Looking up the definition of that word will order the confusion and his interest will return.
Bypassed definitions in an area similar to that you
are now studying will confuse you. Example: one is confused about Scientology and has just heard a few things about it, but
has already taken a course in Psychology or Indian Philosophy. One has bypassed definitions in these associated areas.
There is a gradient of randomity in study where there
is sufficient randomity to hold interest without overwhelming and bypassing the person studying. The length of approach to
a subject should be short enough to avoid failure, in other words, make it simple enough so that people understand it and
yet long enough to avoid skipping a gradient. Enough should be learned so that the subject is covered thoroughly and in order. Don't
start too high on a gradient. Start at a gradient that the person can be at and study at.
Teachers need students present in order to teach them. Not
just the body, but the person's attention.
If someone can't learn, he has missed a lower gradient. If studying produces physical reactions, he has missed a
lower gradient of study in that subject.
Study is a concentration of certainties, a string of confidences that lead to competencies.
One should teach the student so that he can understand the
subject and use and apply it. If a person does not use and apply what he has learned, then he has not really learned it. The
responsibility of the student's attainment of a subjective reality is upon the instructor.
I'd like to comment here that non-application of what one has learned
indicates that there is something wrong with learning. That particular datum is valid evidence 100% of the time. No one alive,
excepting myself and perhaps a few others, have in any way learned or grasped the technology of Scientology because no one
else can apply it purely.
are the result of education.
study has no purpose; live study has a purpose. It can be applied towards a doingness. The relative importance and applicability
of the data studied is important. Without application, there is no purpose and one has pedantry instead of study.
|1. Pedantic|| ||Seldom
|2. Not necessarily concerned|| ||Oriented by application with applicability|
|3. Pompous || ||Non-pompous, aware, sincere,
natural, dedicated activity|
|4. Deals with pure significance's|| ||Doesn't concern itself with significance's that are not related to mass.|
|5. Separates significance's and action|| ||Is concerned with doingness, mass and the reason one engages in |
One could have a school that did not educate, a school
which would fail to add mass and doingness to a significance. Too much significance and too little mass or doingness leads
to introversion. To teach a man about balls, give him a ball, not its history. The extreme of all mass and doingness and no
significance also will lead one to failure in education. The sign of a professional is his ability to do. One doesn't have
to have done everything to be a professional. Doingness can be overstressed.
Education should deal with enough significance's to handle a significant future.
Education should be an activity of relaying an idea
or an action from one being to another in such a way as not to stultify or inhibit the use thereof. One should allow the other
fellow the right to think and develop on the subject, in other words, to where he comes up to judgement, his own ability to
judge and know and apply the subject becomes available.
Scientology developed this and the technology of study so that the initial experiences of teaching and
de-aberrating the very ignorant could be handled smoother and quicker in their advance through the gradient levels of Scientology
towards truth, and applied it in some instances 1964 - 1974 in some of their churches.
The next area I'd like to look at in study is sociological history.
Civilisations rise and fall. Civilisations and their
cultures fall partly because they lose their technologies. They lose their technologies because people don't study technologies
and can't study technologies. People can't study because they don't know how to study. There have been no technologies for
education. Until now there has been no technology of study.
One of the reasons you quit studying is that you study false things. Another thing is that there is an
absence of judgement or evaluation. People think that duplication alone is study. If is simply a mechanical step, mental feat.
Duplication without sense is deadly. Duplication is not the way to study. The world's chaos is the result of these mental
feats, training minds instead of people. The world is desperately deficient in educated people. Study has nothing
to do with mental feats; it is concerned with people, not their minds. Study has to do with understanding, with another
person's willingness to know.
A person can't learn if he doesn't see that he doesn't know, if he - already knows about it. A person who doesn't recognise
their own ignorance can only pretend to study.
Before you can study, you must consider and be aware that THERE IS SOMETHING HERE TO LEARN. Ones lack of understanding
and inability to study leads to fixed slavishness to things and fixed opinions to safeguard oneself. Fixed ideas and prejudices
are based on ones inability to understand.
If a person knows his subject, he won't be the victim of every little bump in his way. Conditions won't monitor
whether a person attains results. (I could not stress the last two sentences enough. Those two sentences are the keys to godhood.)
General problems that people have that prevent their
|1.||They "already know all about it".|
|2.||They employ and claim to need fixed opinions to protect their own stupidity.|
|3.||They let their idea about their knowledge be altered because of difficulties in attaining results.|
You see, only after acquiring the freedom of knowing
what you do and don't know about a subject do and don't know about a subject can you acquire judgement.
Tackle the words before you tackle the subject. Never
leave a word behind in studying.
Care has no relation to speed. Time is an individual consideration and is highly subjective.
Familiarity with the subject is attained after gaining a familiarity
with the words.
I'd like to now
briefly discuss Scientology Processing as an overview.
Scientology processing is the application of a precise technology based on principles about communication,
the human mind and life, in which one person (an auditor) aids and listens to another person to "clear" that person of confusions.
It enables the person being cleared (a pre-clear) to increase his ability to be, live, perceive, experience, understand and
act by freeing his attention from confusions. It can be applied at any gradient of awareness and through it a person can solve
his difficulties in life and thought.
The goal of processing is to bring a person closer to the state of "clear" where he ceases to act irrationally (re-act),
is total cause over his existence if he chooses to be, and can handle anything that he is confronted with.
Clears have fewer problems, better health, higher
IQs, higher perception, quicker reaction time, are more stable, more oriented and have better personalities by traditional
standards. They are highly individualistic. The state of clear is in no way an absolute, it is a subjective and objective,
obtainable and attainable reality.
The next area I'd like to take up here is some data that has been sensationalised by the press.
The press and the public occasionally confuse and sensationalise
practically any significant event that occurs and Scientology has been to some degree a significant event.
The facts are that:
|1.||Dianetics was a million
selling book explaining the human mind and has been a psychotherapy that embraces the first four dynamics, in other words,
self, sex, family, groups and mankind.|
|2.||The Hubbard Electrometer
(E-meter) is an electronic device for measuring the state and change of state of humans. It is about the size of a cigar box
and is used in processing to measure masses surrounding the human body and thus locate areas of confusion. It measures unconscious
and pre-conscious data. It works, in fact, it always works. The use of an E-meter is a precise skill. A trained operator can
find out anything with it. It operates by measuring body resistance and changes in body resistance which is monitored by the
energy mass (usually having significance's attached) in the pre-clear's reactive mind (an individual universe of matter, energy,
space and time which surrounds and passes through the body).|
|3.||Past lives and pre-natal memory. Pre-natal memory is excessively validated in Dianetic research. The
validity of past life phenomena is observed uniformly in Scientology processing, however, the present life is probably the
most important life to the pre-clear, although the chances of him viewing it that way are minute. Objectively speaking, the
life one is living is the most important one, but most people are living it from another life point of view, unbeknownst to
|4.||Scientology as a Religion. It
probably was one from 1954 to 1969. During those years, it dealt with man as an immortal soul and as a being, and operated
off some degree of religious philosophy, tenets, some degree of religious, philosophic tenets. The supposed realm of Scientology
is that of religious wisdom, not of religious practice. Its church creed states that "all men have inalienable right to their
own religious practice and their performance".|
After 1969 the majority of the actions of the church were to deny that previous part of the church creed
with the introduction of something known as the Sea Org which is a para-military organisation of excessively dedicated individuals,
preoccupied with a power struggle against governments. Scientology as a religion during the 1954 through 1969 period did not
condone or adhere to any form of belief. It was concerned with Knowingness, Certainty and Awareness. Thus Scientology, in
its purest form, embraced all religions; a person's religious beliefs and practices were his own business.
Likewise, there was no political affiliations of
Scientology during the 1954 to 1969 period. During those years, Scientology asserted a desire to maintain a society in which
it could operate from and had a number of suggested plans for world peace.
The next thing I'd like to take up is the definitions and words. Before we can understand
the technology or study the technology of Scientology one must know the meanings of the words and we will be taking that up
in very exact detail quite soon. I'd like to clear up the majority of the important words that you will need to understand
to where you can follow along. So, this is a definition sheet:
Affinity - is a consideration of distance.
Chaos - all points in motion, no points fixed.
Effort - the physical force manifestation of motion.
Energy - postulated particles in space; condensed space.
Environment, objective - the environment everyone agrees is
- the environment the individual himself believes is there and it is not necessarily agreed upon.
Facsimile - an energy recording of a finite period of time
which can contain all perceptions; a mental image picture.
Gradient scale - a scale of differences between zero and infinity.
Matter - grouped particles in space,
Randomity - the ratio of unpredicted motion to predicted motion.
Reality - the agreed upon apparency of existence.
Space - a viewpoint of dimension.
Time - a postulate that space and particles will
Stable datum - a datum,
not necessarily factual, which an individual uses to align a confusion.
Responsibility - willingness to be cause and willingness to confront.
Intelligence - the ability to perceive, pose and
resolve problems, and to create solutions.
Work - activity with a purpose.
Happiness - the overcoming of known or not unknown obstacles towards a known goal and also the contemplation or
indulgence in pleasure.
200 definitions of Scientology words and concepts are not in alphabetical order but should probably be studied and learned
in the order that they are presented.
Missed withhold - an undisclosed contra-survival act which has been restimulated by another and/but not disclosed.
Withhold - an undisclosed contra-survival act,
ARC break - the assignment of responsibility for
a sudden drop in affinity, reality or communication.
Clearing - a qualitative return of confidence in self, not a quantitative erasure or handling of bank
the condition of immediate creation without persistence and is the condition of existence which exists at the moment of creation
and the moment of destruction and is different from other considerations in that it does not contain survival.
Alter-is-ness - the consideration which introduces
change, and therefore time and persistence into an As-is-ness to obtain persistency.
Is-ness - an apparency of existence brought about by the continuous alteration
of an As-is-ness. This is called, when agreed upon, Reality.
Not-is-ness - the effort to handle Is-ness by reducing its condition through the use of force. It is
an apparency and cannot entirely vanquish an Is-ness.
Reality - the agreed upon apparency of existence.
Stupidity - the unknowness of consideration.
Truth - an exact consideration.
Barrier - a consideration or idea that limits other considerations or
ideas. This, of course, includes emotional and physical universe barriers.
Blanketing - this is an incident consisting of throwing oneself as a thetan (spirit)
over another thetan or over a MEST (matter, energy, space and time) body. Blanketing is done to obtain an emotional impact
or even to kill. It is strongest in sexual incidents where the thetan throws two MEST bodies together in the sexual act in
order to experience their emotions. This sexual lust comes from the Halver. (The Halver was an incident of being split in
half supposedly.). The fullest effect - MEST itself.
Chain - a series of similar engrams, similar locks, similar secondaries or anything going backwards or
forward in time filed in the mind.
CDEI scale - (Curious-Desire-Enforce-Inhibit) a scale upon which life exists and proceeds.
Delusion - things not of ones own creation or of the MEST universe which
locate one in time and/or space.
Dimension points - the first action of beingness is to extend from the viewpoint points to view, which are dimension points.
Dirty Needle - that erratic agitation of the needle
on an E-meter which covers less that 1 inch of an E-meter dial and tends to be persistent.
Enmest - MEST that has been enturbulated by entheta or crushed too hard
into theta and thus rendered less usable.
Entheta - theta which is enturbulated with MEST in an inharmonious combination.
Ethics - rationality towards the highest level of survival of the dynamics.
Evaluation of data - a datum is as understood as
it can be related to other data.
Exteriorize - the act of moving the thetan outside the body Time - a postulate that space and particles will persist, however,
a better definition is; a consistency of viewpoint of the interaction of dimension points.
Figure-figure-figure - after a thetan (spirit) has been unable to separate
himself from a group or object for a considerable length of time he begins to believe that whatever it is, it is something
which he must have. He will then figure-figure-figure a reason why he has this object. A person who is firmly convinced that
he is a body and is therefore being a body always has to have a reason for a significance. Hence, we get figure-figure-figure.
Given a fact, there must be other facts. And in this wise, we get somethingness added to greater somethingness.

matter in time and space.
- on the time track, that area later than present time; perception of the future is postulated as a possibility. The creation
of future realities through imagination is a recognised function.

which one creates himself.
- an unknowing games condition. (Games condition is defined as a game where there are winners and losers. )

So, these words having been cleared, I'd like to take up the subject of auditing which is the actual Scientology
processing for the improvement of the person.
The ability to do auditing is broken down to five areas. Under "gross auditing errors" you find listed the five
major areas of auditing. On a tape and bulletin entitled -Out- Tech (September, 1965) it lists the five areas of auditing
and in the ethics codes of Scientology it lists that there are only five high crimes as far as applying the technology.
No one in the Church has apparently taken any significant
note of this. 100% of their attention is on the crimes, which are nuances, misdemeanours and details involving auditing. If
you commit a misdemeanour, you get frowned upon by the Church; if you commit crimes, you have to do a little retrain cycle
in an afternoon (which is entitled a Cramming Action where you study the little point that you erred on); but if you commit
a high crime, they are supposed to throw you out of the Church and cancel your certificates. The latter doesn't happen. Since
100% of the Church is obsessed with playing with crimes and misdemeanours, they don't ever notice high crimes, or do anything
about high crimes, and unfortunately commit them 100% of the time. There is no evidence within any of the churches files that
the five fundamentals of auditing were ever, in any instance, by any individual, applied.
The first of the five fundamentals is the communication formula, (these
are also known as training routines) TR-0 is being there, not doing anything but being there, TR-1 is the ability to communicate
naturally to another person to where he receives the communication. TR-2 is acknowledging a communication which completes
it to where the communication no longer exists for either of you, you have moved along in time. TR-3 is the ability to repeat
a question until it is completely answered. TR-4 involves ignoring comments which is where the bank has taken over an individual,
getting all the person's origination understood and clarified to where their attention can come back to the process. So, the
first fundamental in auditing is using a communication formula and an auditing communication cycle; understanding that this
is cyclic and using the formula in auditing.
The second fundamental, a simply area in auditing, is using a repetitive communication formula, in other words,
asking the same question over and over until it is not producing change anymore, in other words, using a repetitive communication
cycle. This is also known as flattening a process. There is no evidence of this being done to any great extent within any
of the churches or outside of my own investigation and research.
The third area is getting and keeping a preclear in an auditing session. This simply means getting and
keeping a preclear in an auditing session, nothing more to it than that. In other words, one has preclears, they arrive. I
think getting one is kind of a step down. They should come to ones doorstep on ones knees if you're doing the first two. If
you're actually using a communication formula on a preclear and flattening questions there is no question that they are going
to be sending in everyone they know. Getting preclears is never a problem if you do the first two things.
The churches' solution to getting a preclear is promising
the world to them and as far as keeping a preclear they do it with intimidation.
Keeping a preclear is handled by the second area of flattening questions.
If you flatten a question, a person will finally find the truth and there is no problem in keeping a preclear then. If they
are finding truth, the only keeping that will be done is that you are going to have to keep them away to where you have some
time for yourself or time for other preclears.
There are rare occasions, I'd say 1 out of 2000, where you would actually have to use a communication bridge
to encourage a preclear to continue their particular endeavour. I'd strongly recommend an auditor not doing that, I'd recommend
an auditor clearing up why the preclear has any degree of doubt or reservation about his own self-discovery. So, getting and
keeping a preclear is practically an unnecessary action, but it is printed within the technology of Scientology that it is
a necessary action. It is a high crime not to get and keep PC's. Personally, I find it absolutely impossible not to have preclears
and I have found it unnecessary to keep them. They keep themselves around and they arrive on their own volition.
The fourth simple area of auditing is knowing how
to use an E-meter correctly and we will be taking each these areas up in detail later. This is a skill which you could probably
train into any monkey or dog, but people make it far more complicated than it is. It is a trainable skill which if a person
is highly intelligent or highly confused, they could take up to six months learning how to do it. (I was both 20 years ago
and it took that long.) An average individual, properly taught, can learn how to use an E-meter in, after they have been processed
up to the Solo Course area, about 3 days time. It takes about 20 hours to train the skill in.
A person walking in off the street that hasn't had any processing,
it would take them about six months because people coming in off the street can't understand or comprehend or believe the
simplicity that if a needle moves at the end of a question then you should do something regarding that question. You should
run the process. If it doesn't move, well then you don't run the process. So, the ability to use an E-meter is the fourth
The fifth area is probably
the most lengthy, complex and turns into an albatross for a lot of people: that is the ability to apply the written materials
of the technology of Scientology, as far as what process to run, what to do in the session, and so forth.
So, the first four make up what is known as your
basic auditing skills and you could apply these to anyone and use practically any question on them and they would probably
get better on a short-term, limited basis and if you apply the fifth area well, they are just going to have the time of their
life. At the very least, it will exceed their expectations and imagination both of which are determined by the reactive mind.
You are doing something that is senior to the reactive mind so it's got to be better than anything they imagined it to be.
Likewise, in these fourth and fifth areas there is
no evidence of any ability to read an E-meter or apply the written materials within the church, historically or presently.
So, what I'd like to do is take up in a less than
abbreviated fashion what these five skills are. In driving a car you have to know how to handle the gears and the steering
wheel and the brakes and the accelerator, turn signals, instruments and rules of the road; you have about seven things to
watch for there and you learn each one them separately, then you start to blend them in and pretty soon driving a car is pretty
easy. In auditing, you have about the same number of factors because you have these five factors of the (1) communication
formula, (2) repetitive communication formula, (3) getting and keeping PC's, (4) the E-meter and (5) applying written materials.
You have two other factors in the session which will be that the preclear as a spiritual being and the preclear as bank.
One final factor is you are keeping adequate administration,
in other words, paperwork. So, it gives you seven or eight factors to work with in auditing. The analogy to driving a car
is quite appropriate because as one gets better at each of these skills, it becomes more and more natural and more and more
easy. If a person understands these five skills, well the overall activity of auditing is too simple to believe. It actually
turns out to be a great pleasure, at times an amusement and eventually as natural as rain.
So, first of all let's take up training routines which are necessary part
for good auditing.
The first one
is TR-0. This is a drill where the student and the coach sit apart from each other and the student is coached to simply be
there comfortably and confront, not do anything but be there. One is coached on that until one can simply be there. After
you can do that, then the coach starts saying things which would normally upset one from being there and flattens those things
off to where a person can be there regardless of what one has to confront. One uses this skill in auditing of simply being
there with a preclear.
simply communicates in a natural tone of voice and intends the communication to arrive over the space of the preclear and
the preclear gets it.
acknowledgements. This is where the coach reads a line out of a book and the student acknowledges it to where the communication
is complete. The comm. cycle is complete to where it is the end of that cycle of action. So, an acknowledgement is taught
not as an agreement but simply that it is a method of controlling a preclear's communication and it's a full stop to the communication.
One is taught to acknowledge the communication only. One learns not to over acknowledge the preclear to where you blow the
whole day away for the preclear; or under acknowledge. If you under acknowledge the preclear it's an encouragement for him
to go on. That is known as a half acknowledgement, sometimes it is useful, but generally if you let them ramble and then give
them a full acknowledgement, then that ends the communication for them (it's not there anymore).
TR-3 is simply teaching a person to redeliver the command
until they get an answer to it. TR-3 also teaches the student to duplicate without variation a command to where they can give
it newly in a new unit of time. It teaches the auditor not to ask a second question until you have received an answer to the
first one. In other words, you keep asking the question until you get an answer. So, it teaches you how to deliver a question
newly in a new unit of time freshly.
TR-4 is called preclear origination's. It teaches you to, if there is an origination, to fully get it all out on the table
to where you understand it, and then return the preclear to the process or the question that you were running. If a preclear's
bank turns on strongly, starts aiming comments at you or the room, anything that is aimed you would ignore and not acknowledge.
Any origination, which would be a non-sequitur answer, you would take up and clarify to where a preclear doesn't have any
stuck attention on it and you can return him to session again.
Obviously, these are all highly useful in life, but if you use these four TRs in sessions, auditing just
runs like a dream.
There are some
upper training routines which are useful in some types of processing. To summarise these TRs: an auditor is trained on TR-0
so that he will be there with the preclear and can comfortably assist the preclear, TR-1 is done so that the preclear can
receive and hear the auditor, not be disturbed by the auditor's manner of communicating, TR 2 is done and practised so that
the preclear gets acknowledged and his communication gets recognised and as-ised, TR-3 is done so that the auditor will continue
to give the commands and run a process, and TR-4 exists so that a preclear's origination's will be accepted.
The upper TRs are as follows: TR-5 was something
that had been deleted from the technology. It was a training routine to teach the auditor that verbal commands are not always
necessary in a session. It is kind of ridiculous to train someone in something that obvious but suffice it to say, non-verbal
communication does exist, in fact, 88% of what is communicated between people is non-verbal according to the University of
Minnesota. One should be highly aware of it when it is going on, it doesn't need to be trained in. TR-6, which is an upper
level TR, is simply body control to where you learn to run Start-Change-Stop on another body, just moving it around a room,
learning to give the commands. TR-7 is more of the same except the coach is extremely belligerent and tries to upset the student's
control. It is sort of an extreme drill because, and it is done on a gradient scale, it is to train an auditor up to where
he can handle a rebellious person under any circumstance and can run fine control under any circumstance. It increases the
auditor's willingness to handle other people. TR-8 is learning how to deliver a command into an object without any reservation
about the command being executed and it breaks up social machinery associated with words. You intend one thing and say another
into an ashtray, then yell at the ashtray, then you sit there silently and deliver the intention directly into the ashtray.
The best drill is actually a side exercise of placing thoughts and changing thoughts in respect to the ashtray. Properly done,
actually one can accomplish physical changes. Twice I was doing the drill asking the ashtray to stand up and twice it stood
up with witnesses in 1966. There are three or four other people at times where this has occurred. It requires some hours of
work and one gets into very excellent affinity with the molecules of the ashtray. I'll tell you that much about it. TR-9,
the final TR, is Tone-40 on a person to where one can communicate with intention to another person without any reservation
and getting the intention executed. It is done to bring about in the student auditor the willingness and ability to handle
other people and to cheerfully confront other people while you give them commands and run control. It also teaches one to
maintain a high level of control in any circumstance no matter what is happening and if you have to use any effort at all,
to use it very precisely and kindly, if possible. So, it is sort of a finishing touch.
One practices these TRs until they are comfortable. If you are training
them into a student auditor, the proper way to do that is when the TRs are manifest and evident on the person in life after
the training, then they have then down cold. If it's an artificial skill that they use only in auditing, then they must not
understand that they are dealing with the mechanics of communication and interaction of every day life. The realisation of
how applicable all of this is beyond description.
If someone calls you and says "I'm going to be coming over for dinner tonight" and you acknowledge the hell
out of his communication, he's not going to show. If someone calls up and says they are coming over for dinner and you half-
acknowledge it, I'm sure that they will drive over military tanks to get there. That is just one of nine TRs. How you acknowledge
and the degree that you acknowledge is going to affect performance.
So, simply stated those are what the TRs are and they should be used. The communication formula which
is used in auditing is that one has to recognise that communication cycles are cycles of action which are start change-stops.
In auditing there are a number of start, changes and stops and a number of communication cycles.
If you are more interested in the TRs and communication cycles
you can read a book called Dianetics Today published under the name of L. Ron Hubbard. Actually it was put together by a guy
named Bill. The people who wrote the book summarised some of Hubbard's other stuff to put the book together. They tried to
get Hubbard to read it but he just hasn't had the time. A lot of material in there that would really wake him up if he got
around to reading it. The communication formula is a number of comm. cycles that occur in auditing and they are listed out
complete with pictures in Dianetics Today but, of course, they omit a few.
The parts of an auditing communication cycle are that the auditor checks is the preclear
ready to receive the command, that is the first part. The second part is the auditor gives the question or command to the
preclear and the third part is the auditor verifying that the preclear got the command. The fourth thing that happens is that
the preclear looks at his mind or his bank and that is known as the Itsa maker line. The fifth part that happens is the preclear
gets an answer back. The sixth part that happens is he delivers an answer to you. The seventh thing that happens is that you,
the auditor, check to see that he said everything. The eighth thing that happens is you acknowledge him and the ninth thing
that happens is that you make sure, inspect that he received the acknowledgement The tenth thing that happens is you check
to see that he answered the question that you gave him. So, these are the ten parts of an auditing comm. cycle. There are
eight parts listed in the Dianetics book. You should be aware that this is what is known as an auditing comm cycle.
You go through as many of these until the process
is flat: it is not producing change on the preclear and the preclear has come up to truth on the subject you are auditing
him to and on.
When a preclear
is in front of you and you are auditing him, he is in communication with you. There is an auditing cycle going on there. He
is also in communication with his bank, that is covered under his itsa maker line and his itsa line back, which is his answer
from his bank to him and his answer to you. So, there are two comm. cycles going on. There is you to him and him with his
bank. There is also a third comm. cycle and that is he is in communication with present time and the room to some degree.
All three of these lines have to be above 2.0 on
the Tone Scale for auditing to occur. You had better keep your line with your preclear very high-toned and make sure that
there is nothing low-toned about present time or the room with the guy. I guarantee you that the material that is coming across
on the itsa maker, itsa and answer back lines to you is going to aberrated and overwhelming and confusing. Since there are
essentially those three lines going, if two of them are in a positive range then you can de-enturbulate this material coming
across on this third ARC line. I wanted to point out that there are three major lines on a preclear in a session, one with
the environment (room and present time), one with the auditor and one with his bank.
The auditing comm. cycle is used on a preclear and it is used repetitively
until the process no longer produces change. This is evident by five phenomenon: the communication lag reduces, the guy figures
the subject area out, he gets regained ability, he gets cognition's and a free or floating needle appears on the E-meter.
One would have to be dumb to miss it. Anyway, when the process is over, it is over. You either move on to a new process, end
off the session or take a break or whatever. That is the second area in detail.
Getting and keeping preclears I have already discussed. That occurs the moment
you understand how to audit an individual, people start appearing at your door. There is no such thing as understanding the
tech perfectly and not being able to get any preclears. I've heard this absurdity. To the degree you understand the tech and
audit well, you will have a backlog of people waiting. For decades I have found this to be true. There is just no exception
to it. There are too many people out there who want help and auditing and they have some spiritual perspicacity or perception
and if you do it well they will certainly find you. You don't ever have to leave your room to find them. You don't even have
to ever tell anybody. It will come out. People smell you out spiritually.
The E-meter, which is the fourth area, is pretty well covered in a book called E-Meter
Essentials. If one were to buy a copy of that and buy an E meter and buy another book called E-Meter Drills and sit down with
a coach and do those particular drills then one could use an E-meter. Since that is covered in detail in the two mentioned
books I'm not going to detail it here, but I can give you an overall summary. In the "Appendix", both are summarised.
One reaches and withdraws from an E-meter until you
are comfortable and not scared of the thing being there. One learns how to turn it on and off and adjust it and set what is
known as a tone arm counter to measure the amount of charge that comes off the preclear during the session. One learns how
to check the preclear's havingness by can squeeze and metabolism by having them take a deep breath. One then learns how to
record tone arm motion, which is simply keeping the needle on the dial while the preclear is talking. One learns how to adjust
the sensitivity knob. You also learn how to test the batteries. One learns how to recognise the difference between body motions,
such as coughing and squirming in a chair or squeezing the cans, and motions of thoughts. Each of these are separate skills.
It is like driving a car, you learn each separate skill then you blend them all together. One learns how to identify a read
and get a preclear to talk about it until the read disappears. That is called cleaning a read off a needle. Then one learns
the types of needle reactions and what causes each of them to where a person gains confidence by using an auditing communication
cycle and handling any bank. For instance, questioning a loss they can learn how to take a fall off an E-meter; or a rise
which could be caused by an ARC break restimulation, they could get a PC to talk about that until the rise would come off
the meter; or a betrayal, getting a person to talk about a betrayal which causes a stuck needle, they could see that stuck
needle go off the meter, and so forth. Then a person learns actively with a coach all the parts of an auditing comm. cycle,
the ones I have listed before. A few are omitted from the drill book but they can be added in. One learns how to dirty a needle
and clean a needle. Then one puts this all together and uses bracketed questions and learns how to get a date. The coach writes
down a date and the auditor ask questions on the E-meter and the coach says nothing. In a short period of time, the auditor
announces what the date is. One learns how to take a list and get a preclear to talk about and find which item on the list
would be good to audit by what produces the most tone arm action. One learns how to get a preclear to sit there quietly and
simply assess a list and take the largest instant read to where one would know what to audit One also learns some general
rules such as, if the TA is moving, do nothing and that is senior to acknowledgements, if the TA is blowing down, moving down
and the preclear is finished talking you wait until it has blown down before you acknowledge. If the tone arm isn't moving,
then you do something, you start asking questions, find out what is going on to get it moving again. You learn that that which
blows the tone arm down will produce tone arm motion. So, basically one learns how to use this tool, the E-meter, through
those drills and the definitions are in those two books. Much of this material is also covered in Dianetics Today. I refer
the reader to those two books towards practical drilling with an E-meter with a number of coaches to where it is as obvious
and as easy and as useful as a screwdriver or a mascara brush.
It's a very simple activity, yet a very precise activity. You may possibly be wrong at times as an auditor
and your preclear may be in error at times, but your meter is never wrong. A person should remember that the meter, although
it is a guide, is an infallible guide, because you are auditing electronic charge off the being. He may be sitting there holding
those cans to get all these meanings straightened out, but your job and what you are doing is getting the concrete off this
individual. By concrete, I mean the overwhelming electronic charge that is ruining his existence. If you audit only these
things which read well and big, then your preclear will be very well satisfied. I enclose the useful drills from E-Meter Essentials
in the Appendix.
So, as far as
basic auditing goes, I'd like to keep it this simple. It is that simple. There has been a lot of controversial and conflicting
information printed by Mr. Hubbard on this subject, all of which belongs in a trashcan. Probably 90% of his comments on auditing
shouldn't even be pursued with much seriousness. If one knows ones communication formula and uses a repetitive comm. formula,
he gets questions answered and uses an E- meter and applies these materials in any logical fashion, there shouldn't be any
There are QTPs, which
are "questionable tech points", through out the guy's writings. There are many direct contradictions there are over 500 of
these QTPs in the Red Tech Volumes. It's almost a shame to even study them.
He's very adamant and cheerful and in a very good mood on a tape and he says don't
ever under any circumstance give the next command if the preclear has his eyes off of you and has drifted off, he has really
finished his answer, you see. And then Hubbard comes along when he is in a bad mood at another time in 1965 and says that
you should toss a new question at him. He put a bulletin out there entitled "Comm. Cycle Additives" where he says you should
just follow simple muzzled TR-0, 1, 2, 3, and 4 and that's quite true, you should. It gets a bit unnatural to become completely
muzzled as you should maintain live communication for that is what causes auditing to occur.
There are also a lot of bulletins on premature acknowledgements.
It would be common sense not to chop someone who is talking with an acknowledgement. Also, it is asinine to invalidate a preclear
with a meter or to depend on a meter, you are suppose to be asking a preclear and auditing a preclear, not a meter.
Probably the one thing a person should be warned
about is a subject called Q & A. That is where you end up copying the preclear's bank instead of doing your job. There
are three common types of Q & A. The first type is double questioning. That is where someone gets into asking about an
answer. There is a fine line between this and getting a complete auditing communication cycle. The difference on the fine
line is the difference between night and day. For instance, if an auditor were to ask "How are you doing?" and the PC says
"Pretty bad", the auditor says "What's wrong?", you are kind of letting the preclear drag you all around with it. You would
be a little better off if the PC says "Awful" and you say "You are?" and just look at him. Restructuring your questions around
the preclear's answers is bad news, it's a Q & A. Inverting their answer to a question is clean handling.
Changing because a preclear changed is the second
type of Q & A. Following the PC's instructions is probably the most absurd Q & A. It's the third type. If you actually
don't understand something, it's good to get it clarified; but it's not a very healthy habit to state that you don't understand
what someone says.
Q & A is
probably best defined as a failure to complete a cycle of action on a PC. (A cycle of action could be defined as a start-continue-complete.)
To the degree that you Q & A with a preclear, you are going to reduce the auditing gain.
There is a fundamental rule in auditing: what turns it on, turns it off.
If a process turns on something pretty wild you can continue the process and it will eventually turn off.
On the subject of an E-meter, since auditing is supposed
to be an essentially joyous experience instead of an excruciating one, a read, which is not properly defined anywhere within
the technology, except in an obscure bulletin in 1972, is a fall, long fall, or a long fall- blow down (which is a needle
motion instantaneously to the right of either 1", 2" or a downward motion of the tone arm .2 of a division as far as respective
definitions). In other words, a read is something the PC can confront. If you would call those things reads and not call anything
else a read, they you would be better off in auditing.
The exception to this would be doing a process entitle 37R where you are looking for the opposite of
reads which are TA blowups, fast rises or sticks. The only other exception to this particular rule is where rock slams and
rocket reads take priority over falls, long falls and long fall blow downs, but those occur towards the upper end of the bridge.
Sometimes they occur early in auditing a PC and when they do, they take seniority. It is caused by very prominent information,
extremely overwhelming information surfacing and should be handled with kid gloves until those reads turn off.
So, what I'd like to do at this time is take up this
fifth area of the fundamentals of auditing. We have already covered the TRs, the comm. formula, the repetitive question where
one flattens a process, getting and keeping PC's, what you need to know on an E-meter in addition to what is in E-Meter Essentials
and the Book of E-Meter Drills.
So, I'd like to take up applying written materials and put forth all of the written materials you will need except where
references are furnished by myself to read certain other materials and hopefully that will be few to non-existent, as a fundamental
overview on the written materials of Scientology.
So, I'll take it from the top and it may seem like I'm wandering off of one subject to another, stating something
again but I'm not, every drop of the rest of this chapter should be crystal clear and well understood before you sit down,
if you so choose to do that, and audit another individual. It is also extremely advantageous to know if you are going to be
audited by another.
So, here is
the written material you need to know. It begins philosophically. Scientology addresses directly the practical solution of
men's problems in the broadest possible sense. It is a body of knowledge which when applied by a properly trained Scientologist
brings about an improvement in people. Its orientation is practical and its theory and application are specific in a series
of well-defined terms and axioms and developments from these. In these senses it bears similarities to other bodies of knowledge
both scientific and philosophical. Many of the ideas of Scientology are drawn from these areas, however, the effective organisation
of these and other ideas in Scientology is somewhat unique. It is perhaps unique also in the effectiveness with which it is
able to accomplish these goals.
Scientology is not merely some kind of psychotherapy or academic philosophy, though superficially it has some of the appearances
of both. It can best be understood in relationship to its own specific goals or an individual's specific goals rather than
through comparisons of similarities or dissimilarities to other disciplines which probably have very different goals.
As has been mentioned, Scientology has practical
concern with the solution of men's problems, thus it is also concerned with the development and improvement of an individual's
abilities and the development of new abilities in an individual. This improvement and abilities and the consequent solution
of problems results in happier, more effective people.
Scientology properly applied wishes to bring people to clearer and clearer states of being. Just as a
calculator must be cleared of previous totals and other remnants of previous calculations, so must the mind be cleared of
inconsequential buttons and emotionally charged data, otherwise its computations will lack accuracy due to inappropriate data
entering into its present computation.
A person who is clear is at willing and knowing cause over his own life, environment and his surroundings without a reactive
or subconscious mind. This is a high stated being and one few people measure up to. Many would not dare hope that they could
reach such a state, yet it has become a realistic goal and has been achieved. Properly applied, Scientology can produce clears.
Through the application of Scientology technology
which is an intricately organised complex of knowledge and observations, the trained auditor uses the TRs, a repetitive communication
cycle, an E-meter and approximates what is going on with the PC with his options of written material and removes these emotionally
charged areas from the PC.
cornerstone of Scientology processing is, however, communication. This is a very fundamental human activity. Through communication,
we contact our environment both the physical world and other life. It is through communication with the past and present environment
that each of us forms our opinions about what really is, what is real and not real, and what is possible and not possible.
These opinions have an important effect on the course of our lives, we might contrast the person with a limited environment
with a person who has communicated with a wide variety of environments.
A country boy who has never left the country and has had little contact with the
more urban elements of our culture most likely has less freedom of choice, for example, in the area of occupation than a well
travelled person from the same location as the boy. To the boy having limited communication experiences, only a limited range
of jobs seems real to him. He has never really talked about or experienced in any sense many other possibilities. Just as
the interior controls of a space capsule, or perhaps even an aeroplane, are outside the experience of some of us and hence
unfamiliar to some of us; to that extent they may seem vague and unreal. This is not saying that we necessarily intellectually
doubt their existence, but that they may seem unreal in comparison to the controls of the family car and we believe in their
existence on the basis of someone else's testimony or logical deduction on our part. We do not know them from direct experience.
This communication broadly defined is responsible
for a very important function, the shaping of our notions of the world around us, our own personal reality. Communication
also effects our affinities, those things which we are familiar with through communication and thus seem real to us are frequently
viewed with more affinity.
of other ethnic groups than ones own is an example of familiarity bringing about affinity for one set of standards while a
lack of communication brings about a lack of affinity for another set of standards. The people with whom we communicate very
well become our dearest friends and those with whom we communicate poorly may become, due to our own misunderstanding, unfriendly
or even hostile. Areas of thought where we understand or communicate well with the elements of that area are likely to become
passionate interests. The mathematician is different from the primary teacher or the composer. It stems from various abilities
to communicate with and to various elements in the environment. Thus, communication determines what seems real or clear to
us as well as our affinities and motivations.
The importance of the communication process should be recognised. The communication process has been broken
down into the ten fundamental component parts in the communication cycle listed here previously. The elements involved in
communication can be handled very precisely. This type of precision handling provides an understanding of how communication
can be misunderstood and what may result from continued application of poor communication or the lack of communication.
Clarification of communication difficulties in a
person's life patterns generally clear up ones activities, business, families and other groups where communication occurs
between individuals and its members.
A second concept the auditor should understand in auditing is that of the stable datum. In light of our discussion of communication,
the stable datum will help you understand how Scientology processing properly applied brings about beneficial changes.
Imagine a vast confusion of particles all in motion.
In order to resolve any such problem or confusion, it is only necessary to be able to predict its component parts. If we can
say where any given particle will be at any given time, that particle is no longer a confusion or problem but rather is ordered
and predictable. To predict the motion of particles we need to pick a reference point, a point of stability from which to
view the other points and around which to order them. This point is the stable datum.
In our solar system, we view the sun as the stationary object or stable
datum and the planets as the moving particles which are considered to revolve and are hence oriented around the sun. We are
able to predict the orbits of the planets around the sun and are so able to predict their relationships to each other. They
become ordered and predictable, are not in confusion and thus, are not a problem. At one time, however, the earth was the
stable datum rather than the sun. Astronomers tried to predict the orbits of planets and the sun and the other celestial bodies
by using this hypothesis that the earth was static and everything else was revolving around it. For a time the stable datum
worked, but observations occurred to the contrary. At first, many rejected reality and tried to cling to the stable datum
of authority at that time, which happened to be the Catholic Church. Eventually, this confusing observation became so well
explained by new theories and stable data that the sun was finally accepted by all as the centre of this planetary system.
Communication through improved means and methods
has brought new data which has caused the abandonment of old stable data as it is no longer an effective predictor and the
acceptance of a new stable datum which does predict effectively. The stable datum was that the planets and the sun revolve
around the earth and the prediction was that there would be certain relationships between the positions of the planets. When
these predictions proved false a new stable fact or reality, a new stable datum was needed to account for the confusing observations,
yet many people tried to hold onto the old, the accepted, the demonstrably false. They were for some reason not able or willing
to communicate with the facts of the situation and change accordingly so as to be better able to predict their environment.
This inability to change stable datum is an important
point as we will see. Stable data are a phenomenon of our everyday thoughts. We have certain ideas of reality, codes of behaviour,
public and private, personal pleasures and fears, etc. They are important whenever we wish to create an effect of any sort,
that is, perform any action or make any change for we must know how to do what we want to do if we are to succeed consistently.
If we want to do well consistently in school, business,
family life, matters of happiness, or any other area of endeavour, we must understand these areas and know-how to effect and
control them to some extent. We must, in short, have ideas about how to go about accomplishing our goals. These ideas predict
what action will be effective and what will not. They are statements which attempt to order, to make predictable, to make
controllable, to explain the various areas of life experience. They are stable data, they are necessary for real success in
any endeavour. As we have seen, it may be that a stable datum does not predict adequately to resolve a confusion. Indeed,
if all stable data did predict adequately, everyone would be successful in their endeavours.
Few of us have completely achieved our goals and perhaps even clearly
seen our potential goals. This is often due to an individual's attempt to use inadequate stable data which only add more confusion
rather than reduce the original confusion. Like the reluctant astronomers of old, we sometimes find it difficult to give up
our pet theories even in the fact of contrary evidence. Men can often be observed to rationalise to fantastic lengths to keep
intact a belief which they somehow think will protect them from confusion. Sometimes so great is the need for protection from
highly threatening problems or confusions, a person cannot take a rational approach to the problem but rather attempts to
hold onto the shattered driftwood, the few remains of a defective stable datum crushed by the tidal wave of fact and experience.
The drowning man fears to let go of his sticks and swim to land.
An inadequate stable datum, being a poor predictor of reality, is a liability, a barrier rather than
an aid to survival. It will produce more confusion rather than more predictability.
It will produce more problems than it will produce any answers
