Grade 7: Clearing Course

Reference: Scientology Grade Processes

On this course, Hubbard provides a prepared structure of GPMs to run. He came up with this structure from his research, must probably by auditing himself. Hubbard assumes that this basic structure of reactive bank is the same for every person. 

The first pair of items to be audited on Clearing Course is: TO BE NOBODY……TO BE EVERYBODY. This is presented as Item 1, Part 1, Run 1. In other words, this pair of items is presented as the ultimate core of the reactive mind.

It is important to understand what Hubbard is doing here. Hubbard is assuming that beginning of the reactive mind starts with some imperceptible identity that the thetan has assumed. 

.

The Thetan and The Dynamics

A thetan is a first dynamic entity. From the viewpoint of evolution, the first dynamic is preceded by seven other dynamics. The universe started with the Eighth Dynamic (the God dynamic). But Hubbard assumes that the universe is the product of agreement among thetans (the first dynamic). In other words, Hubbard assumes that humanlike “beingnesses” are the Cause of this universe. 

Hubbard’s conception of Eight Dynamics is a genius concept, but, unfortunately, he sequences them in an inverted fashion because of his human-centric fixation. 

The Eight Dynamics

.

The Eighth Dynamic impulse

The Eighth Dynamic impulse is TO EVOLVE, according to which the other dynamics flow. The “thought form” that this impulse takes, at first, is not a human beingness; but whatever that form is, it ultimately evolves into a human beingness (or thetan).

Therefore, a whole chain of beingesses exists prior to the evolved beingness of the thetan. The intelligence of thetan is a much later phenomenon that was preceded by much trial and error by the impulse to evolve.

Hubbard’s first mention of thetan occurs in the book HISTORY OF MAN, published in 1952. It is essentially an account of the Fifth Dynamic. The Fifth Dynamic is a combination of Seventh and Sixth Dynamics. The Seventh Dynamic is “the impulse to evolve” and not thetans. The Sixth Dynamic is “the basic substance” that evolves and not the evolved form of matter, energy, space and time that we perceive today.

.

Earlier Similar

So, there is much earlier similar that exists prior to Thetan and MEST.

The Clearing Course talks about a mysterious blue light that appears in the mind and causes anaten (analytical attenuation). Most likely this light represents earlier similar items that are missing.

The Clearing Course, therefore, starts at a much later point and not from the bottom of the reactive bank. Not to recognize this is a fundamental error on Hubbard’s part. 

The first pair of items in the reactive bank is most likely to be of the order of TO BE……TO NOT BE.

Clearing

[NOTE: I don’t recommend this Grade Level to be run at all as it proceeds from unwarranted assumptions. This Grade is run “blindly” entirely on E-meter.]

The action on the Clearing Course is to keep spotting the light, or calling the same item, again and again until no more reads occur on the E-meter. You don’t have to see the light to spot it or see the thetan or see the object or objects.  You only need to spot the place where you are with the idea of what should be there. GPM Line Plot is not used.

Grade 7 Glossary

CHAIN
Anything in the bank that occurs several times will not erase unless it’s the earliest time it occurred.  This is known as the basic on the “chain”.  A number of similar things, early to late in different points of time, make a chain.

ERASURE
You are not seeking RELEASE from the bank at this level.  You are erasing.  Therefore “the bank has blown” is nonsense – one has blown from the bank, so get back in it and run it. Total erasure is the aim.

ITEM 1, PART 1, RUN 1
This is the pair of items that represents the ultimate core of the reactive bank. Apparently, this is the impulse to evolve.

PAIN
Pain only occurs when you have left something charged behind you (earlier).

PART B (is nouns)
Be careful of first one because it is used in the sense of a noun.  Don’t run it otherwise than as a pure noun.

PARTS
The five parts are Parts A, B, C, D, & E as detailed in the section on The Clearing Course Platen. The PARTS go as they do in the first run.  (7s, THEN Basic End Words, THEN Confusion GPM, THEN Objects – hollow, THEN Objects – solid.) 

RELEASE 
You’ll go Release a lot of times.  Ignore it.  We are erasing in R6.  Release can be ignored because the R6 bank is vanishing.  Not true of lower grades.

REPEATER TECHNIQUE
The items are flattened by repeater technique.  Just repeat them until they no longer read.  Get your own reaction off.  Repeat again.  Repeat to no read.  Beware of session suppress and invalidate.

RERUN
If you start getting pain or sickness, you got into a later run or you bypassed some charge and must rerun the earlier area you just did.  Something is still alive.  If in doubt, rerun the lot from the start of the part.  Erase thoroughly.  But if it is a later run, get back into the correct one.

RUN
This row of five parts is called a RUN.  See the section on The Pattern of the Bank. There are four runs.

SICKNESS
Sickness is part of the somatic.  It runs out.

THETAN IN THE ITEM
A thetan is a certain configuration of the impulses that exist. It is a “mental form” opposed to a physical form. The expression “thetan in the item” means the “viewpoint” or “identity” at the moment of the item. One then has to get the earliest moment of one’s own beingness in the bank and spot it.

.

The Pattern of the Bank

The apparent pattern of the bank is as follows (see the section on Clearing Course Platen below):

Part A – The 7s                       (earliest)
Part B – The Basic End Words
Part C – The Confusion GPM           (Run 1)
Part D – The Objects – hollow
Part E – The Objects – solid
 
Part A – The 7s
Part B – The Basic End Words
Part C – The Confusion GPM           (Run 2)
Part D – The Objects – hollow
Part E – The Objects – solid
 
Part A – The 7s
Part B – The Basic End Words
Part C – The Confusion GPM           (Run 3)
Part D – The Objects – hollow
Part E – The Objects – solid
 
Part A – The 7s
Part B – The Basic End Words
Part C – The Confusion GPM           (Run 4)
Part D – The Objects – hollow
Part E – The Objects – solid
