A Summary of Hubbard’s “Original Thesis”

dtot-1971-cvr-front

Primary Axioms

Dianetics and Scientology axioms have been established on a trial and error basis. Work continues to prove or disprove them. By the use of these axioms certain definite and predictable results have been obtained.

Earliest Dianetics axiom assigns a dynamic principle of existence, SURVIVE, as the lowest common denominator to everything in this universe. All animals, vegetable, and minerals are assumed to have a purpose to survive toward some end.

The urge to survive underlies all activities of life from forming a cell to possession of a central control system, which was designed to solve problems relating to food, defense, protection and means of procreation.

In surviving, the ultimate success would be immortality, and the ultimate failure would be death. In the middle would be mere existence without hope of much success and without fear of failure. There will be gradations of success above it, and gradations of failure below it. This idea is presented in Scientology in the form of a scale called TONE SCALE.

The organism acts within its environment upon information received or recorded. The mind as the central control system of the body, poses, perceives and resolves problems of survival and directs or fails to direct their execution.

The DYNAMIC is defined as the persistency of the individual in life. INTELLIGENCE is defined as the ability of the individual to resolve problems relating to survival. The Dynamic and Intelligence are two primary factors independent of each other.

PLEASURE is a perception of advance toward the ultimate goal, and PAIN is a perception of reduction of reach toward that goal. Both are necessary survival factors.

GOOD are those things that aid the dynamic drive of the individual, his family, his group, his race, or life in general. EVIL are those things, which tend to limit the dynamic thrust. Good may be defined as constructive. Evil may be defined as destructive. The perception of good and evil may be modified by the viewpoint.

HAPPINESS depends upon making, consolidating, or contemplating gains toward his goal.

.

An Analogy of the Mind

Dianetics simply addresses those aberrative experiences in the mind in which conditions, such as psychosomatic manifestations, have their roots. Aberrated behavior is that which is contrary to survival. Invariably its source is found to be a painful experience containing data, which is not available to the analytical mind. Dianetics consists of discovering the aberration in the individual, finding the physically painful experience, which corresponds to it, and placing the data therein contained at the disposal of the analytical mind.

There is an aspect of the conscious mind that is entirely reactive in its “thinking.” This aspect of mind dominates in animals. “Consciousness” means the awareness of now. The mind records successive instances of now.  This makes up a time track connecting memory in an orderly chain. This process is not interrupted during “unconsciousness,” which is basically an interruption of only the analytical process.

The primary motivator in lower orders is energy in its various forms. This energy evolves into a physio-animal mind with ability to command the entire organism. The physio-animal mind evolves a self-deterministic ability to analyze and direct itself. In lower organisms this ability is expressed as simple reactions learned from painful experiences. We may call this low level of “self-deterministic” ability, THE REACTIVE MIND. In higher organisms this ability becomes much more complex. In man it acquires such power and complexity that it has no real rival in any other species. We may call this highly developed self-deterministic ability, THE ANALYTICAL MIND.

The self-deterministic ability coordinates the response of the physio-animal mind. In the state of extreme emergency, this ability may reduce itself from a high-level complex and delicate analytical process to a low-level simple and rugged reaction. This reduction is perceived as “error in thinking.” It is activated by the need for immediate action in response to perceived emergency as triggered by restimulators. RESTIMULATORS are things in the environment, which are perceived to approximate the painful experiences in the mind, and thus bring about an awareness of emergency.

The entire organism is always conscious but the temporary dispersion of the thought processes of the analytical mind brings about a condition whereby that mind, having been dispersed and considering itself the residence of the person, is unable to obtain and reach data perceived and received by the organism during the analytical mind’s condition of dispersion.

.

The Dynamics

All energy efforts and all forms follow a dynamic thrust through time toward the attainment of some goal. We may refer to the dynamic thrust as urge to SURVIVE.

This urge to survive may be divided as follows:

SELF: Concern with the survival of body and self-determinism.

SEX:  Concern with procreation of progeny and its survival into the future.

GROUP:  Concern with one’s activity to obtain and maintain the survival of the group of which one is a part. Family is a combination of dynamics.

MANKIND: Concern with the survival of the species of man.

LIFE: Concern with the survival of life as expressed through all species.

PHYSICAL UNIVERSE: Concern with the survival of all matter, energy, space and time.

THOUGHT: Concern with the survival of thought.

UNIVERSAL THOUGHT: Concern with the survival of the Creative impulse.

Each dynamic is of nearly equal importance in the individual. It breaks further into purposes, which are specific and which interact with each other in a complex way.

Even an unaberrated individual reasoning freely can have difficulty rationalizing the problems of importances and choices amongst these dynamics. An aberrated individual will, however, come up with non-survival solutions thinking them to be survival.

Individual and group irrationalities may introduce further complexity amongst the dynamics. The aberrated conditions of a society tend to vary the stress on these dynamics, making first one and then another keynote of the society.

.

The Basic Individual

The basic individual is the state of complete integration and highest possible rationality. This state is established by

The strength of his basic DYNAMIC, and the relative strengths of his dynamics;

The sensitivity, which is to say the intelligence, of his analyzer;

The coordination of his motor controls, and his physiological and glandular condition;

His environment and education.

Though amazingly varied one from the next, the basic individual is essentially “good” and he lacks no courage. He is responsive on all dynamics. There are no intentional vices or destructive dramatizations. He is in possession of self-determinism. Artistry, personal force, personality, all are residual in the basic personality, and do not derive from his aberrations.

.

Engrams

The engram is a packaged perceptic intimately connected to the physio-animal mind. Lowered analytical awareness combined with pain and actual or conceived antagonism allows engram to be formed. The engram interprets organism’s immediate perceptions during periods of weariness, illness, or hypnotic moments, per the associations formed earlier under extreme conditions.

Each sensory perception is organized precisely as the field of semantics is organized. It is plotted in time according to the earliest or most forceful significances. Words are sounds in syllabic form delivered with a definite timbre, pitch, and volume or sight recognition in each case. The mind is better able to differentiate amongst qualities of utterance than amongst the meanings of words themselves.

Scanners of the analytical mind can scan ordinary memory data, but they cannot scan charge antagonistic to survival from an engram. The reverse charge exerts hidden influence on the analytical computations, and it is directly hooked to motor controls and other physical functions.

An engram is an entire dramatic sequence, implanted during unconsciousness, which possesses specific perceptic keys (restimulators), any one of which, when unanalytically perceived by the individual in his environment, may in greater or lesser degrees set the engram into reaction. The engram is dramatized literally by physio-animal circuits. Its content is denied to the analytical mind in its exact character during its dramatization.

There are three kinds of thought:

Engramic thought is literal. It demands immediate action without examination by the analytical mind.

Justified thought is the effort of the conscious mind to explain away the aberrated side effects caused by engramic thought,

Rational thought is optimum in terms of providing solutions.

Individual is much more susceptible to the effects of engrams when there is hostility and confusion in the environment. An engram confuses the time sense of a person. It can keep an individual partly in a regressed state.

An aberration is serious to the degree it undermines the competence of the individual. Every aberration contains its exact command in some engram. For every engram there is a somatic as part of that engram. The aberrated condition depends on severity of engrams rather than the number of them. The severity of engram is proportional to perceived threat to survival.

A “floater” is an engram that has not been restimulated. A “chronic” is an engram that has been restimulated enough times to become a part of the individual.

A “lock” is painful mental experience which is joined to an engram and dependent on it for its pain value. The lock can be scanned by the analyzer, but not the engram. Removal of engram removes all related locks. Attention should be paid to engrams rather than to locks.

It is therapeutic to remove the individual from a restimulative environment. Effects of an engram may be overcome by a survival purpose boosted by necessity.

A birth engram is common to both mother and child and it may collect a lot of locks because of their close association and continual restimulation.

The organic sensation aspect of an engram, when restimulated, may cause somatic and deny body fluids to parts of the body causing psychosomatic illness and actual disease.

Hypnosis is creation of associations at amnesia-trance level. The mind is compelled to follow such associations and explain them to itself. When suggestion of such association is recalled, the mind suddenly understands the real reason, and the compulsion vanishes.

The release of the post-hypnotic suggestion into the analytical mind brings about rational thought. An engram is like a post-hypnotic suggestion inflicted with pain and antagonism to give it a more lasting effect. An engram can be formed prior to birth even.

Pain appears to jumble up the perceptions into a knot which then persists. When activated, this knot of perceptions bears down on the body the same way as it did when it was first formed. The raw perceptic associations of pain and antagonism override finer learned associations.

Under pain perceptics function differently and develop complex associations.  Reaction to environment from earlier experience of pain and antagonism can be observed even at cellular level. Birth is ordinarily an engram of some magnitude.

Presence of analytical power and an absence of pain prevent the formation of engrams. Normal hurdles encountered in life accompany enough analytical power and absence of pain. They are not capable of aberrating the individual. The human mind is founded upon powerful and constructive basics, which only powerful, painful and antagonistic experiences can impede.

The first problem of the auditor is discovery of the basic engram.

The engram is a bundle of perceptics which include, as the primary manifestation, organic sensation. The organic sensation is enforced on the members of the body to a greater or lesser degree whenever, and as long as, the engram is restimulated. It then co-exists with NOW. Every engram contains and enforces the command on the analytical mind that it has been dispersed and is not operating.

.

Aberrations

It is the content of the engram, which causes the aberration and forms its nature.

Engrams modify the basic command SURVIVE, thus producing abnormal characteristics in the behavior of the analytical mind.

When the organism can no longer influence or command its environment, it can be considered to be insane in that environment.

Aberration is caused by the factors

(a) That derange the time sense of the individual

(b) That make the individual chronically unable to conceive differences.

(c) That suspend analytical mind’s ability to conceive associations

The mind resolves problems related to survival, utilizing its ability to conceive similarities and observe differences.

The following are some complexions of aberration:

Compulsion – command that organism must do something.

Repression –command that the organism must not do something

Neurosis – an emotional state containing conflicts and emotional data

Psychosis – a conflict which seriously reduces individual’s ability to solve his problems.

The engram cannot manifest itself as a mental aberration without also manifesting itself to some degree as somatic aberration.

In the absence of disease or injury, any mind not in a physiological amnesia state may be restored to normal function by the removal of the reactive mind.

.

The Tone Scale

The tone scale provides a measure for sanity in an individual.

The location and development of an engram begins with apathy, develops into anger (or the various facets of antagonism), proceeds into boredom, and arrives at last in cheerfulness or vanishes utterly.

An individual with a zero tone would be dead. Zero to one is that emotional bracket which may be denoted as apathy. From one to two is the range of antagonism. From two to three is the range of boredom. From three to four is the range of cheerfulness. The term tone four denotes a person who has achieved rationality and cheerfulness.

Each engram in the reactive mind can be said to possess a tone value. Above two point five an engram could not be considered to have any great power to affect the analytical mind. Engrams can be computed as they lie along the dynamics. Complete rationality depends upon exhaustion of the reactive mind.

The initial diagnosis is done by the assignation of a general tone to denote the condition of an individual’s reactive mind. An engram normally can be expected to run from its initial value in the apathy or anger range to tone four.

.

The Character of Engrams

Traumatic perceptics create associations and identities in the analytical mind where such did not exist before. The individual then uses these associations and identifications to interpret what it perceives. The mind perceives the impressions left by past perceptics in the form of  a time track of experience.

This derangement itself, having become part of the analyzer, cannot be perceived by the analyzer. The impression left of those traumatic perceptics, which cause this derangement, cannot be perceived by ordinary means.

Both body and mind get aligned to the engram (the impression left by traumatic perceptics) and get activated into its pattern when similar perceptics appear in the environment. The engramic content then gets dramatized.

The analyzer cannot permit itself to be wrong. So it has to justify what it does under the influence of the engram. Engramic thought is irrational identity-thought by which the mind is made to conceive identities where only vague similarities may exist.

As the analytical mind becomes more corrupted due to the infiltration of traumatic perceptics from outside it reacts to unsolved problems as follows:

  • Succumbs – justifies the organism’s reaction to them
  • Neglect – apathetically may neglect them
  • Avoid – avoid them in many intricate ways
  • Flee – causes the organism to attempt to flee from them
  • Attack – attacks them

The problems contain their own solutions. But the analytical mind is unable to pull the strings. It cannot even isolate the situation. It becomes entirely indiscriminate and irrational.

The individual’s tone drops as engramic patterns take over more and more of individual determinism. The analytical mind introverts not being able to discover the source of its command. Below 2.0 the individual is more or less in a state of being commanded by its engramic patterns.

The tone of the analytical mind determines the degree to which engramic data is hard wired to bodies controls. The engramic pattern may be fed in sequence to accomplish a dramatization.

How traumatized the mind is depends entirely on the traumatic perceptics received from the environment. The auditor is only interested in what has been done to the person. The acts committed by the person are useful for diagnostics purposes only.

By eradicating pain from the life of an individual, the auditor returns the individual to complete rationality and sanity. The auditor should restore the person to tone-four, which is far in advance of the normal state in the society. This can be accomplished with any person who is not physically hopeless.

Anything implanted, even if “positive” is bad for the individual. This includes positive suggestions through hypnotism, auto-control hypnotism, or “education.” Only the individual can decide and evaluate things in his environment.

Traumatic perceptics disrupt the self-determination of the individual and introduce unseen foreign, careless and unreasoning commands. They are much more severe than the usual parental punishments, family complications, reprimands, minor accidents normally encountered in life.

Traumatic perceptics may cause identifications in the mind with “hidden” personalities. This may cause irrational attachments and antipathies in one’s contemporary environment.

Traumatic perceptics are interpreted most literally as they were received. They can and do aberrate all the sensory perceptions, any and all parts of the mind and body. The evolution of speech has greatly contributed to this aberration. With speech the delicate mechanism of the analytical mind could be aberrated in complex ways.

Aberrations in no way contribute to individual’s power or purpose. A person may apply the impulse of “do not get rid off” unknowingly to his aberrations as well. An incident of attempted abortion may provide mass to this impulse.

Traumatic perceptics create associations and identities in the analytical mind where such did not exist before. The analytical mind cannot then perceive this derangement of itself. Aberrated eccentricities are not part of the true individuality.

.

Dramatization

Impressions left by traumatic perceptics become a part of the mental and physical make-up.  When the organism operates through these traumatic impressions, it is said to be dramatizing.

When the general tone of the person is high he can be aware of the effect of these impressions and can override them. As this general tone lowers through ill health, reverses, or constant restimulation, the person is proportionately less aware, and dramatization ensues.

Low tone, high restimulation, creates complete dramatization in terms of identity. The person acts like one or more of the identities present in the traumatic impression. However, high tone, mild restimulation, mild dramatization in terms of similarity is the usual case.

Insanity can be acute or chronic. The common denominator of all insanity is the absence of all or almost all awareness potential in the person. By examination of the rage or apathy or hysteria patterns of a person, one may assess the character of the traumatic impressions in the person.

The dramatization of a manic, fanatic, or zealot appears to be highly purposeful. However, it has a hectic quality. It is a false purpose coming from the traumatic impression. It channels native ability into a furious and destructive effort. A deeper restimulation, however, brings about physical pain and sporadic sag of “purpose.”

A prevention of dramatization reduces the dynamic thrust and tone of the person toward a break point. Unhampered dramatization produces other harmful effects. A strong necessity may help overcome a dramatization. Dramatization occurs most often in the absence of necessity.

The mental and physical condition of the organism at the moment of trauma becomes part of the traumatic impression and gets activated by restimulation. The physical dramatization may be allayed by physical exhaustion. The mental dramatization may be allayed by mental exhaustion of the phrases uttered during the receipt of traumatic perceptics.

.

The Auditor’s Code

The auditor must behave and act totally rationally toward the preclear. Since the preclear’s case can be restimulative to him, he should either be clear or be undergoing clearing himself.

The auditor must maintain affinity with the preclear toward preclear’s survival. He must keep his tone as close to 4.0 as possible and never go below boredom. He must have a presence that is confident, cheerful, optimistic and reassuring to the preclear.

The auditor must courageously face any low tone reactions of the preclear. He must always act in a kind and rational manner. He must be trustworthy and never break his word. He must keep good hygiene. He must take care not to offend the concepts or sensibilities of the preclear.

The auditor must be persistent in handling the preclear’s case, and properly exhaust the traumatic impression, until the tone rises to proper tone four. He must be patient and willing to work long hours at any and all times to get his job done.

The auditor should not allow the preclear to be infatuated with him. He must always redirect preclear’s infatuation elsewhere.

.

Auditing

The auditor functions as an extra analytical mind of the preclear during an auditing session. The goal is to view the traumatic impressions.

Establish personal affinity by understanding and communication on agreeable subjects. Use no drugs that affect awareness. Use no hypnotism. Give no hidden suggestions.

Ask the person to go back to a certain incident while retaining the awareness of the subject in present time, then recount what he can of the incident.

Drain data from his time track to present time. To locate data, observe some somatic pain and seek to discover wherein it was received.

The somatics are employed primarily because the motor controls possess a less disturbed time track than the sensory strip. By talking to the muscles or motor controls or various bodily aches and pains, the auditor can shift them at will up and down their time track. This time track is not connected to the analytical mind and speech, but is apparently a parallel time track with greater reliability than the sensory track. Muscles can be made to tense or relax. Coughs, aches, and pains can be made to come and go simply by uttering the right words for the engrams, or the wrong words. The motor strip time track can be asked questions down to the smallest moment of time, and the area of an engram can be so located and its character determined.

Glean data from a person’s remarks, or illogicalness, on a subject. Ask the person to dream about this data and direct him to go back to the engram causing the dream.

Create a codified restimulator list after inquiry into the person’s life. You may find the remarks of the person about his engrams to be included in the content of those engrams.

.

Diagnosis

Whatever confronts or contests the analytical mind of the preclear will also confront and contest the analytical mind of the auditor. Take due notice of what a person says about the process of going back to an incident. Don’t listen to any justifications about his actions. Listen to what he thinks has happened to him or what he is afraid of. There is a sound basic personality under all that aberration.

Discover what immediately preceded the break of the person or what is currently causing him unhappiness. The probability is that he has a chronic restimulator in his vicinity. The problem of “Fixed Person” is that some part of the personality of some individual in the current environment is identified with some part of the personality in the engramic past. The problem of “Sympathy engram” is that the person is prone to reactivate somatic ills in the presence of the identity personality, with whom he is now associated, to gain sympathy. The person also assumes unknowingly one or the other engramic identity and thinks and behaves accordingly. He loses his own determinism.

The discovery of the basic traumatic impression (engram) on the chain of similar impressions is extremely important. If the person can’t see, feel hear, or freely emote an incident then it is later on the chain. It is necessary first and foremost to locate the basic engram. The basic engram may lie at or before birth. It is with the greatest difficulty that the auditor will find the basic engram as the scanning mechanism of the analytical mind purposefully avoids pain.

Light prenatals are the best possible approach to a case. The basic engram and the beginning of the actual engram chains is very early, before, near, or during birth. The task requires a great deal of imagination and persuasion. If an engram does not seem to be lifting after a few recountings, a precursor (earlier engram) must be suspected and returned to.

On the first few recountings an engram might be faint and then become more severe as more data is located. The data will finally be in a more or less complete state and the engram will begin to lift, rising up through the various tones. Guessing the actual engramic phrase, or thought, helps penetrate the engram. Lifting the basic may automatically release the later charge on the chain.

The auditor must learn to compute engramically. Earlier preparatory work on a case may involve rehabilitating the time track by rapid scanning and exhausting later locks. Then auditor should enter upon the problem of reaching the basic.

An auditor must think his way through every case. He should pay attention to statements the preclear is reiterating constantly during auditing. He should accumulate experience as to how incidents can be thrust off the time track and buried from sight.

.

Exhaustion of Engrams

An engram is an unconscious moment containing physical pain and conceived or actual antagonism to the organism. Before it is discovered the engram will exhibit antagonism toward the auditor trying to discover it. Upon discovery, it may be found to be lacking in its essential data. Many returns through the incident are therefore necessary.

When an engram will not exhaust, the first thing the auditor should suspect is an earlier engram. If at last the auditor is entirely certain that there is no engram earlier of the one being run, some possible locking mechanism later on may be found and exhausted.

THE PRINCIPLE OF RECOUNTING: The preclear is merely told to go back to the beginning and to tell it all over again. He does this many times. He should not be “recounting” from memory of what he has told you before. He must be returned to the consciousness of somatics continually until these are fully developed, begin to lighten and are then gone.

If the preclear is bored with the incident and refuses to go on with it, there is either an earlier engram or there is other data in the engram which has not been located. Tone four will not be reached if there are earlier basics. After erasing the basic one must come forward erasing other engrams on the chain in sequence. At this time the locks, the merely mentally painful incidents in the person’s life, will begin to release automatically. While these are releasing, the auditor must concern himself with secondary engrams. The auditor can take the prenatal and birth contents of the engrams of his preclear and run them to discover post-birth locks and secondary engrams.

A person is introverted if he retains any part of a reactive mind. Introversion is not natural as it impedes dynamic pursuit of life. A person is guided by his general basic purpose, which is formed around the age of two. This purpose may get buried. A person is normally interested in its rehabilitation. An auditor, for the term of auditing may engage his preclear along the purpose line of becoming a Clear.

The circuits of the mind can become entangled to a point where even the motor control time track is confused. One may have to jockey back and forth between earlier and later engrams. The dispersal of purpose by some engram along some dynamic or purpose line is a common situation. For example, promiscuity indicates dispersal of second dynamic.

A standard patter during emergencies or stress creates certain types of engrams, which in turn create types of insanities. Insanities are so definitely contagious that when aberrated parents raise a child, the child becomes aberrated. Parent’s engrams combine into doubled engrams in the children. The result of this is a contagion and a progression of aberration.

It is useless to return a preclear to his or her aberrated spouse and expect domestic tranquility to result. You need to release the spouse too. The auditor should be prepared to audit the family of his preclear, should an investigation of that preclear make it seem necessary. The preclear may be somewhat victimized and impeded by his reactive mind, which now exists in his associates.

Auditing is a process, which is taking the “normal” and “average” and giving them their birthright of happiness and creative attainment in the world of man.

.

Engram Chains

There are more than one engram chains in a person. Effort should be to discover the earliest chain if possible. Otherwise, exhaust the later and more available chains.

An engram chain is composed of a basic engram and a series of similar incidents. A true engram is unknown and underlies the awareness, as a false datum on which is erected almost equally unknown similar incidents and an enormous number of known locks.

In order to release an engram chain it is vital and absolutely necessary to discover the basic of that chain. A basic engram will rise to laughter, “sag” slightly, and then rise to tone four and vanish. Successive engrams will then erase from that chain with very little work. An engram not basic may come up in tone but it is subject to “sag” back to a lower tone. Its content maybe reduced somewhat with repeated work.

After releasing the basic on a chain, return up the time track releasing all subsequent engrams to bring the whole engram chain to tone four. The engram chain can be considered to have vanished, as the locks will vanish of their own accord.

An engram may embrace more than one engram chain (cross engram) causing convergence of those chains. These are handled only by exhausting the basics on those chains. All engram chains should be exhausted from a preclear.

There are certain rules to establish the basic engram on a chain.

  1. No engram will lift if the basic of that chain has not been lifted.
  2. The basic engram will not lift until the first moment of the basic engram has been reached.
  3. If after two or three test recountings of an engram it does not seem to be improving, then look for an earlier engram.
  4. No engram is valid unless accompanied by somatic pain.

.

Prenatal, Birth and Infant Engrams

Only incidents of the greatest magnitude in physical pain and hostile content are sufficient to aberrate a mind. A human being receives and stores exact impressions of everything, which occurs. At some future date, when similar perceptics are encountered, the reactive mind re-analyzes—on the basis of identities only—the content of the early mind. This becomes the foundation of the post-conception personality.

The basic personality and its dynamics do not proceed from engrams. The dynamics are impeded not enhanced by engrams. There seems to be cellular recording, which duplicates as cells duplicate. Then there is individuality, which is independent of cells.

After a very short time in the womb, the brain and nervous system are already operating. Fear, pain, and unconsciousness extend the range of perception of the individual. The repair facilities available to a human being before birth are unimaginably great. The prenatal human being may survive grave injuries, but they cause engrams of extreme severity.

The attempted abortion is the most serious aberration producer. Nearly all preclears will be found to have at least one prenatal engram and the case will not solve unless that prenatal is reached and exhausted. The auditor should suspect an abortion attempt in every preclear he audits, at least for this next generation. The attempted abortion may not be discovered until considerable auditing has already been done.

The auditor will find it necessary to “unstack” the prenatal period. Attempted abortions may run to any number. The basic engram on the attempted abortion case may be found shortly after the first missed period of the mother. Its emotion will be exactly that of the person or persons attempting to perform the abortion. The prenatal human being is confusing himself with other people associated in the attempts.

The auditor should be prepared to encounter difficulty in the ability of the preclear to hear voices or feel pain. The auditor should never question the validity of his preclear’s data. Rationality of content in the engrams should not be expected.

The test of an engram is whether or not it will lift and whether or not the somatics, which accompanied it, disappear and a tone four is obtained. The exact content must be brought out. The periods of unconsciousness in early engrams must be penetrated. Such will quite ordinarily release slowly.

Birth is in itself a severe experience and is recorded by the human being from the first moments of pain throughout the entire experience. Prenatals, on the other hand, restimulate more easily. Everything in infant life is recorded and the engrams received in it are extremely valid. The auditor will find himself dealing mainly with prenatal, birth, and infant life.

Moments of unconsciousness, which contain physical pain and conceived antagonism lying in childhood and adult life are serious and can produce aberration.

.

The “Laws” of Returning

ABERRATION: the aberree’s reactions to and difficulties with his current environment. It is the mental error caused by engrams.

SOMATIC: any physical or physically sensory abnormality. It is the physical error caused by engrams.

RULE: An auditor must keep his own case in good shape to be able to continue auditing.

Every engram possesses some quality which denies it to the analytical mind. There is strong compulsive or repressive data.  There is denial and self-invalidation. There is bouncing away or being held in one place.  There is also self-perpetuation. Engrams are self-locking and off the time track.

There is also the principle of avoidance of pain, which makes it difficult to contact the engram. The organism may then act in the followings five ways.

Succumb__________ Self-invalidate

Neglect_________________ Be Held

Avoid____________________ Deny

Flee____________________ Bounce

Attack_________________ Confront

An artificial approach to engram must be made. The preclear must be persuaded not to avoid, neglect, flee or succumb. There must be enough of preclear dynamic, which should then be boosted further by auditor’s dynamic. The auditor’s dynamics operating against an awake preclear can produce an “insanity break.”

The Dianeticist is interested solely in what has been done to the preclear. Greater patience is required on the part of the auditor. Preclear’s dynamics are at least restraining the dramatization to some degree. This restraint is gone if preclear’s dynamics are invalidated.

Under reverie the analytical mind is reduced in potential, but, it is still capable of thinking its own thoughts and forming its own opinions. In the absence of this analytical awareness the engram dramatizes itself without weakening. The additive dynamic drive law must be made to apply before engrams are reached.

In reverie the preclear is placed in a light state of “concentration,” which, in the state of alliance, can be directed interiorly. The auditor usually encounters the aberration of sense of time on part of the preclear, and handles it by constructing a time track. He does this by having the preclear examine experiences that, which can easily be reached. Then he begins an immediate effort to reach basic. This may take much effort.

The difficulties the analytical mind encounters when returned to or searching for an engram are identical to the command content of that engram. An aberree in adult life is more or less obeying, as restimulated, the composite experiences contained in his engrams.

The preclear’s behavior in reverie is regulated by the commands contained in the engram to which he is returned and is modified by the composite of chronologically preceding engrams on his time track.

The somatics of a preclear are at their highest in an engram where they were received and at the moment of reception in that experience.

When returned to a point prior to an engram, the commands and somatics of that engram are not effective on the preclear. As he is returned to the moment of an engram, the preclear experiences, as the common denominator of all engrams, a considerable lessening of his analytical potential. He speaks and acts in a modified version of the engram. All complaints he makes to the auditor should be regarded as possibly being verbatim from, first, the engram that he is re-experiencing or, second, from prior engrams.

At the precise moment of an engramic command the preclear experiences obedience to that command. The emotion a preclear experiences when regressed to an engram is identical to the emotional tone of that engram. Excesses of emotion will be found to be contained in the word content of the engram as commands.

When a preclear is returned to before the moment of reception of an engram he is not subject to any part of that engram, emotionally, aberrationally, or somatically.

When the time track is found to contain loops or is blurred in any portion, its crossings or confusions are directly attributable to engramic commands which precisely state the confusion.

Any difficulty a preclear may experience with returning, reaching engrams, perceiving, or recounting, is directly and precisely commanded by engrams.

An engram would not be an engram were it easy to reach or if it gave the preclear no difficulty and contained no physical pain.

The characteristic of engrams is confusion. First, the confusion of the time track; second, the confusion of an engramic chain wherein similar words or somatics mix incidents; third, confusion of incidents with engrams.

This confusion is occasioned by the disconnected state of the analytical mind during the receipt of the engram.

  • Locate and identify hidden incidents in relation to each other.
  • Thus, rebuild the time track.
  • Then locate and exhaust the basic.
  • Then locate and exhaust the chain.

Any perception of pre-speech life during reverie denotes the existence of engramic experience as far back as the time track is open.

If the individual’s general tone is clearly not tone four, if he is still interested in his engrams, another more basic chain than the one found still exists.

If the preclear is observing the incident from outside of himself, there is engramic material earlier than that incident.

If the engram “sags” instead of lifting then there is earlier engramic material. The discovery and lifting of the basic to which the locks are appended removes the locks automatically.

    Relief comes from resolving unwanted condition by
    (1) By locating the source (usually some incident)
    (2) Recounting the details from beginning to end several times to recover all suppressed material, and purging all emotions contained in the incident.

    This is the core of the procedure anywhere. Difficulty lies in locating the source, or sources, of the unwanted condition correctly and completely. Different methods approach this problem differently.

    Dianetics has its own approach to locating the source of unwanted conditions. It has come up with its own hypothesis to be able to detect where such sources might be found.

    In this thread, Dianetic hypothesis shall be commented upon only for its usefulness in resolving unwanted conditions.

  • vinaire  On September 4, 2014 at 8:00 PM

    The basic dianetic hypothesis is that
    (a) An unwanted condition is something contrary to survival.
    (b) The source is always a painful experience and suppressed data.

    “Dianetics consists of discovering the aberration in the individual, finding the physically painful experience, which corresponds to it, and placing the data therein contained at the disposal of the analytical mind.”

  • vinaire  On September 4, 2014 at 8:45 PM

    How do the concepts of Reactive and Analytical mind help resolve an unwanted condition?

    Analytical – Reactive is just a dichotomy that may be represented on a scale of infinite gradients. How does this dichotomy help locate the source of some unwanted condition?

    Maybe these concepts help the auditor notice and follow inconsistencies in the preclear to locate the source of his difficulties. But it seems to me that the preclear trained on mindfulness can do this much more easily on himself because he is in intimate touch with his mind.

  • vinaire  On September 4, 2014 at 8:51 PM

    Looks like various concepts developed by Hubbard, such as, Dynamics, Survival, Tone Scale, etc., has the sole purpose of tracking inconsistencies in the preclear by noticing his reactions to questions of the auditor.

    The ultimate purpose was to locate the source of preclear’s unwanted condition.

  • vinaire  On September 4, 2014 at 9:06 PM

    The painful experience (engram), which is supposedly at the root of the unwanted conditions, is the target of the Dianetic Procedure.

    The problem is, “How does one locate the right engram and resolve it.”

    How does one go about doing that?

  • vinaire  On September 5, 2014 at 10:02 AM

    It doesn’t matter what one writes about engrams. One may write tomes about it.

    But the problem boils down to locating the painful experience (or simply experience), which would resolve the unwanted condition.

    It is simple as that. That was the case in 1948. That is still the case in the world of Scientology today.

  • vinaire  On September 5, 2014 at 12:27 PM

    The basic problem is that there are unwanted mental and physical reactions to things in one’s environment. How that correspondence is set up is not known.

    Once it is known then it can be handled.

  • vinaire  On September 5, 2014 at 12:35 PM

    There could be some script running in the mind over and over again which can translate into repetitive behavior in some cases.

    The key ability that is suppressed is the ability to perceive and recognize. This is the ability to be aware of both physical and mental objects.

  • vinaire  On September 5, 2014 at 1:20 PM

    Solutions come to the degree one is able to perceive and understand the phenomenon, which is generating the problem. When a person is not able to handle a problem, his efforts to handle the problem also start to contribute to the problem. This soon grows into confusion.

    Confusion interferes with awareness. Pain is extreme confusion. Solution lies in the direction of reduced confusion. As the first step, one should remove all those things from a person’s environment, if possible, that are contributing to his confusion.

    “Hypnosis is creation of associations at amnesia-trance level. The mind is compelled to follow such associations and explain them to itself. When suggestion of such association is recalled, the mind suddenly understands the real reason, and the compulsion vanishes.”

    A hypnotic suggestion seems to short-circuit more normal computations. It contributes to the generation of confusion. One simply works to reduce the confusion no matter where it is found, without creating new confusions.

    Gradient reduction of confusion is the key regardless of where it is on the time-track.
    .

  • vinaire  On September 5, 2014 at 1:43 PM

    The concept of confusion seems to be broader than the concept of engram. It is much easier to find the confusion than the engram. One may narrow down to a person’s confusion by looking at

    (a) His areas of interest, where his attention dwells most of the time.

    (b) Any area when brought to attention, fixes or disperses his attention.

    (c) The aberrations visible in the person’s thinking and behavior.

    What does removal of the reactive mind means? It simply means the removal of key confusion sitting in the mind of the individual.

  • vinaire  On September 5, 2014 at 2:23 PM

    The various concepts in Dianetics were developed to compute the engram in an individual, when the individual could not bring it up or contact it even. If the person cannot access the engram, then other stuff may be stacked up on top of it.

    The question then becomes, “How does one un-stack the mind?”

    One way of un-stacking the mind is to follow the attention of the person where it gets fixed or dispersed. Let the person’s mind tell it you.

    Guessing will get you in trouble. This is what Dianetics started to do: guess at the engram. That did not work too well.

  • vinaire  On September 5, 2014 at 3:20 PM

    Engram may or may not be a single incident, but it sets up certain circuits of associations in the definition/logic matrix of the mind.

    Whether there are engrams or not, we are targeting the resolution of such circuits, which trigger more easily than the rational circuits of associations in the mind.

    Such circuits affect all aspects of the mind, such as, impulses, thoughts, and behavior.

  • vinaire  On September 5, 2014 at 3:32 PM

    So, the target of resolution is actually a circuit made of certain unwanted associations, because they are not rational. The problem is that of bringing this circuit up in the awareness of the person.

    The person may have some inkling of this circuit in terms of associated confusions. Confusions are a good place to start. As one starts to resolve confusions, certain association may show up that are questionable. It is tracking of such associations that may finally lead to the actual circuit. A lot of cleanup may be required around the circuit before the circuit itself shows up to be cleaned up. This requires patiently cleaning up whatever presents itself.

  • vinaire  On September 5, 2014 at 9:57 PM

    The following was a very sane approach in original Dianetics, which got derailed later:

    The auditor is only interested in what has been done to the person. The acts committed by the person are useful for diagnostics purposes only.

    .

  • vinaire  On September 5, 2014 at 10:08 PM

    Anything not fully understood is aberrative whenever it is used.

  • vinaire  On September 5, 2014 at 10:31 PM

    “Self-determination” = lack of inconsistency

    There is no other self-determination.

    • Chris Thompson  On September 5, 2014 at 10:45 PM

      “There is no other self-determination.”

      That’s an interesting look – “lack of inconsistency” as self determination. More consistency then means more self determination. Even more consistency means pan determination?

      It seems we could quantify this with physics. More condensation as more mass and less relative motion to itself. Example: the diamond probably experiences little relative motion among the lattice of its minerology.

    • vinaire  On September 6, 2014 at 7:08 AM

      True “self-determination” shall be determination from a viewpoint that is not fixated on self. In other words, that viewpoint is not “self-centric.”

      That viewpoint floats around in the sea of awareness. It is not sucked into one of these “whirlpools.” See

      A Model of the Mind
      .

  • vinaire  On September 6, 2014 at 8:11 AM

    Dramatization is an indicator of confusion. When a person is dramatizing, he is demonstrating a confusion.

    By observing the dramatization, one may guess at the confusion and narrow it down to specific concepts that may be misunderstood, or specific experiences that need to be cleared up.

  • vinaire  On September 6, 2014 at 8:14 AM

    A “self” could be a deeply frozen confusion.

  • vinaire  On September 6, 2014 at 8:28 AM

    The more I think of it, the more it seems plausible that “dramatization” is wonderful for diagnostic purposes.

    A person’s dramatization should NOT be challenged. The person is dramatizing because he is not aware of whatever is prompting him to behave in that way. A Dramatization is just part of the observation to narrow down to a confusion.

    Once a confusion is determined that is real to the person, the Mindful Discussion can be used to gradiently resolve that confusion. One should not force resolution as was done in early dianetics.

    One should simply work with the person locating the confusion which is real to the person and resolving it on a gradient with the use of mindful discussions.
    .

    • grannydeepsea  On September 9, 2014 at 1:53 AM

      I like the sound of this. Dianetics attacks the engrams. You are describing a nicer approach.

      Dramatization is ‘showing what happened’. Kids do it. When you’re older and you still do it, people tell you to ‘grow up’.

      This tech I keep hearing about would appear to the the way to ‘grow up’.

      Thanks for your blog, Vinaire.

      • vinaire  On September 9, 2014 at 5:17 AM

        One doesn’t need to set up a session to help a person handle confusions.

        Besides a confusion could just be there for all participants. So by helping another resolve a confusion, one is helping oneself too. 🙂

  • vinaire  On September 6, 2014 at 9:29 AM

    I find this Original Thesis much more consistent than today’s Scientology.

  • vinaire  On September 6, 2014 at 9:33 AM

    Body and mind seem to have one-to-one correspondence. If the body is sick or tired it suppresses the proper functioning of the mind to that degree. It also depends on what parts of the body are sick and how much.

  • vinaire  On September 6, 2014 at 12:29 PM

    Here is a short and sweet evaluation of the Sea Org and RPF.

    (1) If a person is heavily dramatizing, he needs to be taken out of that restimulative environment and then helped with sorting out his case.

    (2) This seems to be the basis of “Introspection Rundown” where a person is put in isolation. But introspection is the last thing that person should be doing when in isolation. He should simply be allowed to rest without restimulators.

    (3) Sea Org was initially an experiment in inducing high necessity level to key out one’s case.

    (4) The reasoning behind the first RPF was to allow a “low necessity” place where a highly restimulated person could destimulate and sort out his case.

    (5) High necessity level does key the bank out, but there is a limit to it.

    (6) The RPF program was the safety net for the person who crossed the limit in 5 above

    (7) Both Sea Org and RPF lost their purpose gradually after Sea Org moved to the land.

    (8) Sea Org started to degrade those who crossed the limit in 5 above.

    (9) People start getting assigned to RPF as a punishment for political reasons and not for rehabilitation. This may have started with the List 1 project when Hubbard lost his marbles.

    (10) RPF became a low cost labor supply pool rather than a place where rehabilitation could occur.

    (11) With this shift in purpose RPF became a place for conditioning instead of rehabilitation.

    (12) And that is how it is today.

  • vinaire  On September 6, 2014 at 3:46 PM

    One may help a person come out his or her dramatization by putting them in challenging environment where they need to increase their necessity level. But the level of challenge required for each person is different.

    A good challenging environment would be one where people are helping each other get better.

    Life provides enough of a challenging environment. A person growing up faces quite a bit of challenging environment. So, I don’t think that a challenging environment is lacking.

    What is lacking is the help needed to recognize a person’s confusion and help them get through it.

  • vinaire  On September 6, 2014 at 7:29 PM

    It is a pity that Auditor’s code is limited to a dianetics session only. I believe that it should be applied at all times as would the case with mindful discussions.

  • vinaire  On September 6, 2014 at 7:37 PM

    The statement, “The auditor functions as an extra analytical mind of the preclear during an auditing session,” is something that has led to the fall of Dianetics and Scientology. It makes the person dependent on his auditor and/or on the e-meter. The person never gets to operate totally on his own.

    In mindful discussion the person is encouraged to apply mindfulness and thus start operating on his own right from the beginning as much as possible.

  • vinaire  On September 6, 2014 at 8:03 PM

    “Ask the person to go back to a certain incident while retaining the awareness of the subject in present time, then recount what he can of the incident.”

    The auditor is pretty much lost when he cannot get the person to find an incident. So this is a weak point in Dianetics. One should simply ask about the concern the person has.

    More important than any details is narrowing down the confusion that the person has. If there is an incident associated with it, it will come up by itself pretty quickly, and so would any earlier similar. Idenics technique to zero down to the core of the incident is quite effective. And then handling any suppressed data (thoughts, emotions, impulses, etc.) around that incident.

    But if an incident cannot be found, one can continue discussing the confusion and clearing it up bit by bit, and picking up other trails of it and following it up.

  • vinaire  On September 6, 2014 at 8:51 PM

    “Drain data from his time track to present time. To locate data, observe some somatic pain and seek to discover wherein it was received.”

    Somatics may only be a small part of what the person is concerned about. Dianetics limits itself to somatics. This is quite a shortcoming.

  • vinaire  On September 7, 2014 at 6:26 AM

    Mindful discussions would have to deal with day-to-day dramatizations in such a way that the situation progresses toward better understanding.

    When dramatizations contains too much force and irrationality, it is best to simply keep quiet and somehow provide a calming environment.

  • vinaire  On September 7, 2014 at 7:10 PM

    When a person is obviously dramatizing (acting irrationallyI, but says that he doesn’t have any confusions and doesn’t need any help, then is it possible to do anything to help them?

    I would think that such a person is just too restimulated, and you yourself may have become a restimulator for him. That person simply needs a calm and peaceful environment in which he can destimulate.

  • vinaire  On September 7, 2014 at 7:18 PM

    It seems that a lot of people out there need a calm and peaceful environment.

  • vinaire  On September 7, 2014 at 7:35 PM

    In early dianetics LRH was trying to reach a person who was difficult to reach. Either that person was unaware and inaccessible; or he was very low tone to care about anything.

  • grannydeepsea  On September 8, 2014 at 1:42 AM

    Hi Vinaire,

    I just posted this on Marty’s blog. Am I allowed to put it here, as well? I believe it is on point for both, and I just now thought of adding it here. If it is not okay, then don’t post it. Once again, nice work and I look forward to your opinions! Oh, did you like the math??

    Anyway:

    I now think I was not fully correct about Dianetics being the only important writing, because I’m reading Marty’s book and he explained that Scientology was created after L Ron was faced with new information. I often have to rethink after new facts emerge, as in this very case.

    I am very impressed by your compilation of Dianetics – you should send it to Cliff Notes. It is a very worthy tool for anyone who wants to see the concise version.

    With all this new information both you and Marty are helping me to make sense of the bigger picture.

    When I woke up this morning (remember, during sleep, we get to commune with the collective consciousness of our Planet, which includes all people who are currently dead, asleep, or are Big Thetans) I felt somewhat sure that Dianetics is very important for Earth Clearing and Scientology is the first step in human clearing, with Dianetics enabling human clearing, as well. I look forward to reading more at your blog and finishing Marty’s books, but usually, these morning feelings pan out.

    I do have something rather interesting that I want you to consider. It might be why L Ron’s Big Thetan put Dianetics first. I sent this to you after reading part of your blog, and I’m putting it here now as a preface to my wonderings:

    ” “Perception tells us what is there. Sensations are part of perception. Through the application of mindfulness KHTK looks for inconsistencies in whatever is perceived. An inconsistency is something puzzling, or something that does not make sense. A closer look at inconsistency clarifies what is there as opposed to what is being assumed. The answers to ‘why’ and ‘how’ resolve swiftly with this clarification.”

    I found this on your blog. This is a way of ‘saving the question’ that was used to get information through the dark ages. They burned books and libraries to stop history from repeating itself…things were pretty bad…they were eating babies. So they tried to start over, but they had to save the important questions. The books that were allowed to make it through the dark ages saved these important questions in the very way that you mention above. Hence, I asked you, did Samson tell the truth the 4th time. Answer: only if he was a stupid fucking idiot.”

    So allow me to wonder – L Ron didn’t give the 0 Dynamic or the 0 Axiom. He usually begins with 0, but in these two cases, he did not. I think his Big Thetan was leaving a puzzling clue.

    I will put forth that the 0 Dynamic should be the health of the host – God and the Universal Body. That is our first purpose and our reason for existing. When that job was taken away from us 6000 years ago, humanity floundered. Now I’m going to paste from the original letter I wrote to Marty:

    Kalama Sutta

    The people of Kalama asked the Buddha who to believe out of all the ascetics, sages, venerables, and holy ones who, like himself, passed through their town. They complained that they were confused by the many contradictions they discovered in what they heard. The Kalama Sutta is the Buddha’s reply.

    Do not believe anything on mere hearsay.

    Do not believe in traditions merely because they are old and have been handed down for many generations and in many places.

    Do not believe anything on account of rumors or because people talk a a great deal about it.

    Do not believe anything because you are shown the written testimony of some ancient sage.

    Do not believe in what you have fancied, thinking that, because it is extraordinary, it must have been inspired by a god or other wonderful being.

    Do not believe anything merely because presumption is in its favor, or because the custom of many years inclines you to take it as true.

    Do not believe anything merely on the authority of your teachers and priests.

    But, whatever, after thorough investigation and reflection, you find to agree with reason and experience, as conducive to the good and benefit of one and all and of the world at large, accept only that as true, and shape your life in accordance with it.

    The same text, said the Buddha, must be applied to his own teachings.

    Do not accept any doctrine from reverence, but first try it as gold is tried by fire.

    It seemed to me that He knew there was a misunderstanding of an ancient text. So I went earlier. I’ve read some material that suggests that L. Ron believes our current religions are implants. Ignore that for now, I’ll return to L. Ron soon. Please read this with an open mind. Imagine instead that ancient texts are partially encoded to get truths through the dark ages in a somewhat confusing way. The ‘encoders’ were from the Secret Societies of the past and they knew they were going to burn libraries and lie to the masses. They saved the truth in stories that were often told as logic puzzles. Sometimes they ‘saved the question’ by telling a lie about it, for example, saying that fire is an element. They KNEW fire is not an element. But they were not allowed to tell too much truth, so they saved the question…they challenged us to prove Aristotle was wrong, even though he knew the truth. He lied on purpose.

    I’m sure you’ve heard of Newton’s law of motion ‘for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction’, right? Well, it’s looking like about 5 to 6 thousand years ago, somebody mixed up the laws of heavenly motion with ‘the code of human conduct’, the Dharma. They must have been reading a book. They got all mixed up with Heavenly existence and Earthly existence.

    They made ‘for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction’ part of the code of human conduct…they invented Karma. Karma is not how God treats people…it’s a misinterpreted law of heavenly motion. Karma is benign…all about the self. But Abraham brought that law with him to the less civilized Fertile Crescent. Karma changed to a battle cry…an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth, thus sayeth the Lord.

    Meanwhile another Heavenly fact got misinterpreted. Did you know our Milky Way galaxy is on a collision course with Andromeda galaxy? Well, from outer space, that must look like ‘two armies arrayed on a battlefield’…and that’s how the book ‘The Bhagavad Gita’ begins. Two armies are arrayed on the battlefield of Kuruksetra. Before the battle begins, Arjuna says to Krisna ‘I don’t want to kill my uncle, my teacher, my cousins or any of those guys on the other side’. Krisna, that’s God, says, don’t worry, they don’t really die, they move on in spirit…now get back to the battle, you’re going to win.

    This strange story suggests that God not only condones war, but takes sides in human battles. But wait, in chapter 16 of the same book, Krisna says ‘never create suffering’…hmmmm, war creates a bunch of suffering, so we have a paradox on our hands? But wait, what if Arjuna is our galaxy’s spirit? Then this will all make sense.

    The galactic collision cannot be avoided, so God does sanction Heavenly battles, but I don’t think it’s right to call it a battle…just a joining. Unfortunately, this story not only makes it look like God sanctions war, and takes sides in human battles, it also created ‘separatism’. In order to have a war, you must have an ‘us vs. them’. The Greeks, when speaking on war, made distinctions on ‘us vs. them’, and Greeks weren’t allowed to kill Greeks.

    But God really never sanctions human battles, because we are not held into gravitational pathways that disable movement. We are free to turn the other cheek (the butt cheek, lol) and walk away.

    So, just like in the Bible, the paradox has been resolved. In the Old Testament, ‘God’ says ‘eye for an eye, tooth for a tooth’ and ‘kill ‘em all’ on several occasions, but then Jesus says ‘you have heard it said an eye for an eye a tooth for a tooth…but I say turn the other cheek’. Jesus was accused of trying to change The Law (The Torah) when He said these words, but he wasn’t. The law remains ‘for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction’. No, Jesus was trying to fix the code of human conduct – the Dharma. We are supposed to love God and love one another.

    So, it was never supposed to be ‘as above, so below’. It was never supposed to be ‘on Earth as it is in Heaven’. No! It was supposed to be ‘in Heaven as it is on Earth’. God made us in His image, in that the Universe is one body. Look at your body. It is very complex. There’s the brain and heart, and all the other organs, then there’s the blood and oxygen traveling and mingling. Then deep down inside there’s the immune system keeping everything healthy…and a spirit resides in this physical package.

    So let’s check the Universe…full of galaxies sort of like organs, with all kinds of gravity and dark matter and dark energy flowing around, and way down deep inside is humanity…little tiny smart things that can affect changes to their environment. Humanity is the Universe’s immune system. And God’s Spirit resides in the Universal physical package.

    Currently we pray to God for help…He can send His conscious love our way, but He’s too big to do physical tasks. Actually, He is supposed to be praying to us, and telling us what He needs us to do for Him so He can be healthy. The human brain enables this exchange.

    So, once again, when they made the misinterpretation so many years ago, they took our jobs away from us. We have been floundering ever since.

    I would like you to consider this and also to think of what the 0 Axiom should be. That is what I’ll be thinking about this week. I look forward to hearing your views.

    • vinaire  On September 8, 2014 at 4:31 AM

      The following might give you a clue to Axiom 0.

      Ground State of Universe – History
      .

      • grannydeepsea  On September 9, 2014 at 1:33 AM

        I read it. But please tell me what you think so I can consider your opinion.

        What stood out the most is the reference to 0. When you consider 0 to represent ‘the size of the unit and marker of the extent of the baseline’ then zero isn’t the same old zero anymore. It is the controlling factor. You know there is no two in base two, just a one and zero. Likewise there is not three in base three, and there is no ten in base ten. ’10’ means ‘totality of base’. We are stuck in base ten land, but it’s an illusion. An actual ten is a single digit numeral with ten angles. Look at the one in this font – 1 – it has one angle. Look at this capital Z and see the number 2 – two angels. Put a W on its side and see the 3 with three angles. Imagine that the horizontal line in this font’s 4 didn’t cross the vertical line, just stopped – four angles. Likewise, a real ten would be a single digit numeral with ten angles.

        Now that you’ve considered that, now realize that there is no one in base one – only that pregnant zero, just waiting to set the size of the unit and the extent of the baseline to get everything going.

        When I was in India, I had the pleasure of meeting with one of the Dalai Lama’s secretaries. I was trying to explain Monad to him. I told him it is not one, but it is like one, and it is not zero but it is like zero…He stopped me with excitement and said ‘I know what you are referring to, it is called the emptiness in Buddhism’. He didn’t understand what I was trying to tell him, but he shocked me and I remember making a mental note at that moment to reconsider the Buddhist concept of ‘the emptiness’.

        When I returned to the US, I did just that.

        I believe Pythagoras’ Monad is the Buddhist’s Emptiness as well as the Chinese’ Yin Yang.

        So I guess I am asking for your opinion on what the Monad/Emptiness/Yin Yang Axiom should be.

        Thanks, Vinaire.

        • vinaire  On September 9, 2014 at 4:55 AM

          In my view, it is the dichotomy of “awareness – non awareness.”

          We live in a universe of awareness bounded by non awareness.

    Situation: A person has unwanted condition.

    Handle it with mindful discussions as follows:

    (1) Listen to the person’s concern. Try to understand it fully. Get what the unwanted condition really is. Start from what the person is telling you and use your experience to isolate the unwanted condition.

    (2) See if you can help locate the source of that concern or condition. The person looks but he does not have to tell you the details. Just guide and handle his confusions. Gradient reduction of confusion helps no matter where on the time track it is. If the person cannot access the beginning, then other stuff may be stacked up on top of it.

    (3) One may narrow down to a person’s confusion by looking at
    • His areas of interest, where his attention dwells most of the time.
    • Any area that fixes or disperses his attention, and lessens his awareness.
    • The aberrations visible in the person’s thinking and behavior.
    • His reactions to things in the environment and dramatizations.

    (4) Dramatization is an indicator of confusion. When a person is dramatizing, he is demonstrating some confusion. By observing the dramatization, one may guess at the confusion and narrow it down to specific concepts that may be misunderstood, or specific experiences that need to be cleared up.

    (5) You want to find out, “When did the unwanted condition start?” The source of his condition does not have to be a painful experience. Keep following wherever inconsistencies take you. You want to get to the beginning, or bottom, of the unwanted condition.

    (6) If the person is trained on mindfulness it may get easier to locate the beginning of the unwanted condition. Just be there with the person, asking questions to help jog his mind.

    (7) If some incident comes up, have the person look over it thoroughly. No need to know the details. Just make sure all possible data is looked at.

    (8) If the incident contains pain and unconsciousness, have the person go through it many times until no new details are coming up. The person does not have to verbalize every detail.

    (9) The unwanted condition could have started during this incident, or some earlier similar incident. Just follow what comes up naturally and get to the exact point of beginning.

    (10) Get whatever is suppressed around the area of beginning of unwanted condition. Help purge the emotions, impulses, thoughts, etc. that are still lingering from that point.

    (11) Whether there is a beginning or not, we are targeting the resolution of associations and circuits, which trigger more easily than the rational associations in the mind.

    (12) Keep going back to the basic concern and coming forward to understand some inconsistency. Follow the trail of fixed or dispersed attention and exhaust it as far as you can.

    (13) After going back and forth many times, hopefully you’ll get to the bottom of the unwanted condition. If the person is unable to go back and forth then follow the appropriate point of mindfulness therapy.

      The person is Earth. The unwanted conditions are human trafficking and pedophilia.

      Dramatizations are currently manifest through units of life force called humans. They are under a state of control that can be thought of as ‘confusion’ but with this note: con = with, therefore, ‘with+fusion’…fused. The humans are fused to the dramatizations.

      The cause is God’s living engrams being awakened too early and taking footing wherever they can – meat eating humans are a prime target.

      Since I believe God has a plan for those engrams which includes sleeping for 5 billion years until the Sun burns away Earth’s body, consider that maybe Earth is a lock. Maybe in God’s case, He has put the lock in this ‘space/time’ for a purpose. The timing of the unlocking has already been set. We need to get the Engram back to sleep so he is not suffering during his locked phase.

      Does this make sense?

        If I apply mindfulness to what you just said, I see a lot of speculation which has no basis as far as I can see.

        What is God?

        I would encourage you to check out Mindfulness exercises here.

          God is the Biggest Doll. Next comes the Galaxy’s Doll. Then the Sun’s Doll. Then Earth’s doll. Then the human Doll. Earth contains all the human dolls. Sun contains all the planetary Dolls in His system, as well as all the humans. Galaxy contains all the Star Dolls, Planetary Dolls and human dolls. The Biggest Doll contains All.

          So way deep inside of the Biggest Doll, one of the Planetary Dolls is sick, Earth. This is as far as I used to go.

          Now, Dianetics combined with Mandaean teachings has me believing that the problems on Earth are Engramic.

          Think about it. The cells in our bodies that are physically affected by our engrams, might consider those engrams as alive, with life force working against those cells.

          Extend that analogously to God and let Earth be an Engramic lock that will be unlocked in 5 billion years with the passing of our Sun. Would God enable His living engrams to sleep through the learning process? I say yes. God isn’t about torture. I think He created the Universe with love in mind. So this living engram that is supposed to be asleep inside of Earth, got awakened early. He is dramatizing his past life in the pre-existence. He is using humanity to display the dramatization. Those things which are being dramatized are slavery, pedophilia and torture.

          Because God can’t uncreate and must, therefore, deal with his engrams, He chose to be kind and He created places for them to sleep and enabled them to grow up during that time. Think ‘caterpillar/butterfly’. He is not a butterfly yet, so he has to go back to sleep.

          I will read the mindfulness essay again.

          In my opinion God is a composite of all that we don’t know. We then give it a beingness.

          You seem to be using God in the sense of the overall system (whatever that is), and then giving it a beingness.

          An engram is basically a deep confusion set in place that is yet to be processed. Basically, you seem to be saying that there is a big confusion afflicting the humanity on Earth. Nobody is going to disagree with that. When the sun passes away then all humanity will pass away too, and with that, all its confusion as well. This is obvious.

          Now I don’t know what learning process you are talking about.

          There was no way to reply to your post below.

          God was God way before 15 billion years ago. The ‘way’ of creation is part of a well thought out plan. The miracles are amazing. I could write for an hour on heme cells alone.

          Humanity has 5 billion years to grow before the sun burns off the planets, setting free any detained beings. Before that happens, we should be smarter and have some space ships allowing us to move around the Universe offering help to any who might need us.

          But if we don’t get our ‘should be asleeps’ to go back to sleep, then they will continue to wreak havoc.

          I use mindfulness as often as I can.

          I’m continuing to read your blog. Thanks for writing, vinaire!

          granny: “God was God way before 15 billion years ago.”

          It is easy to say that, But

          CAN GOD BE DEFINED?

    Diagnosis in Dianetics is based on certain assumptions. Therefore it is limited.

    .

  • vinaire  On September 8, 2014 at 6:45 AM

    Dianetics suffers from the limitation imposed by the assumption that the time track is linear. This linearlity comes from the observation that before life there is birth, then pre-natal, then previous lives, etc.

    But the associations in the mind are not linear like that. These associations are in the form of a multidimensional matrix.

    It is an error to treat an incident as an independent unit. An incident has many parts, and these parts have many definitions. These definitions are indexed with definitions in parts of other incidents. This situation is far from linear.

    Thus, the un-stacking approach is more workable than a linear time-track approach.

    Hubbard assumes, “A human being receives and stores exact impressions of everything, which occurs.”

    This assumption by Hubbard led to great effort on his part to get people to recall exact details from their past. He further assumed that recovery of the person depended on the recovery of exact details of his past.

    His research then took him in the direction of resolving blackness and invisibility of past impressions. He developed all kind of hypotheses in this direction. It seems that all that effort was unnecessary because exact impressions over time condense into concepts.

    The following model describes this phenomenon of condensation of impressions.

    Hubbard assumes, “Only incidents of the greatest magnitude in physical pain and hostile content are sufficient to aberrate a mind.”

    John Galusha’s research in Idenics did not find this to be true. Deep aberrations can be cause by basic postulates (assumptions), which did not necessarily came about in moments of physical pain. They also came about as efforts to understand the unknown or unknowable.

    Such postulates, assumptions, biases, prejudices etc., is what creates filters, which distort a person’s perception. This is the primary cause of aberration.

    This led to Hubbard’s efforts in the direction of engrams and implants. He ended up creating a synthetic case in people because of such assumptions.

    Maybe Hubbard was good at casting the Imperius Curse

    It is a joke… but maybe not.
