## Introduction to Subject Clearing

Reference: Course on Subject Clearing

Subject Clearing is the natural system that helps evolve consciousness. The focus of Subject Clearing is on resolving anomalies so one has a very clear view of what is there.

## ANOMALY

We all have studied mathematics. We should have a clear view of the fundamentals of this subject. We should clearly understand the difference between a digit and a number. If we don’t, then we have an anomaly. Let’s check out the following:

If you now have a better understanding of a digit and a number, then you just resolved an anomaly. Some of you may not even have been aware of this anomaly. The fact is: if you have a doubt, a perplexity, or a nagging feeling that there is something missing, then you are definitely confronted with an anomaly.

An ANOMALY is a violation of the sense of oneness, such as, a discontinuity (missing data), an inconsistency (contradictory data), or a disharmony (arbitrary data).

Here is another example: A question that each one of us has probably asked ourselves, is: “Who am I?” It is a discontinuity that disturbs the sense of oneness with nature. This is a very fundamental anomaly. It is a mystery about the human self.

There is a lot of material out there that tries to deal with this anomaly. There are religions, and books on spirituality, yoga, psychology, etc., that try to answer this question. But as long as a confusion exists in your mind, the anomaly is not resolved for you. Take a look at the Glossary of the SELF, especially at the words: self, identity, consciousness, “I” and mental matrix.

## RESOLUTION

The resolution of an anomaly occurs when you spot your postulate, or the assumption, which is keeping the anomaly in place. Once you recognize your postulate or assumption, the anomaly disappears for you.

The mind naturally generates projections when gaps exist in understanding. They stay as assumptions until they are replaced by reality or narrowed into better assumptions.

Many assumptions in astronomy got clarified with progress in mathematics and after the invention of the telescope. Similarly, assumed causes of illnesses were corrected after the invention of microscope.

## RULE

Dr. Winter states in his introduction to DIANETICS, “We should feel free to examine the basic assumptions of any body of knowledge we wish, without fear of committing lese majeste. If any system of thought is going to wither in the light of investigation, it does not deserve the title of Authority.”

The rule in Subject Clearing is:

No past idea or learning in the area of doubt and perplexity is sacrosanct—meaning so “sacred” that you cannot question it.
