Standard Operating Procedure, Issue 3

This process is done in steps. The auditor with EVERY preclear makes no other judgment than to begin with Step I and, failing to accomplish that immediately, to go to Step II; if he fails to accomplish this immediately, he goes to Step III and so on. When he is able to accomplish a step he labels the case as that step number, i.e., a III. He then begins working with that step. After a few hours’ work, he again starts at the top with the preclear with Step I and progresses on through. Eventually the preclear becomes a Step I.

Hubbard is creating a system of auditing that can be easily followed.

Step I—-POSITIVE EXTERIORIZING: Ask the preclear to be a foot back of his head. If he does, make him go back further, then up, then down, practicing placement in space and time. Then one asks him to see if there are any items in the body he would like to repair and proceeds to let the preclear repair them according to the preclear’s own ideas as to how he should do it. Then educate the preclear by making him create and destroy his own illusions into finally getting a certainty of illusion and from this a certainty of perceiving the real universe with all perceptions. (Note: The most real universe is, of course, one’s own illusory universe and should be completely rehabilitated before one attempts to perceive or handle or worry about the MEST universe. Rehabilitated, sonic, visio, etc. of the MEST universe are very clear and very certain. Clear perception in early stages is not a test of being outside. The only test is whether the preclear KNOWS he is outside.) Failing the first line of this step, go to Step II.

This step is basically an effort to extrovert your attention. Most people have their attention fixed at the center of their head. They have never visualized how they look from a position one foot behind their head. When you make this visualization, it gives you an interesting perspective. Please note that this is visualization only. You are basically extending a viewpoint that is one foot behind the head. Artists extend their viewpoints like this all the time. Once you can visualize from this viewpoint behind the head, you can get creative with subsequent visualizations as described above.

Subsequently, you may visualize parts of your body from different viewpoints. You may visualize any problems with them as well. It does not matter if your visualizations are accurate per the textbooks on biology. This exercise is about freeing up fixed viewpoint with respect to parts of the body. So, you may visualize the action of repairing your body parts. Essentially, this is letting your body part unwind and relax back to their natural state. Let it take as long as it takes. This may or may not remove the problem in the body completely. But that does not matter. What matters is that you are exercising your viewpoint.

Here you are being creative with your visualizations. This is called Creative processing. At the same time you are making these visualizations with as firm a conviction as possible. This is called postulate processing. This is how you “repair” your body. You may then go ahead and “repair” parts of your environment as well. Ultimately, you may be able to “repair” the reality of the whole universe.

One’s reality of the universe is based on one’s viewpoint. Rehabilitation occurs as the person enlarges his viewpoint through such “repairs”. By looking at the universe from different angles one may free one’s attention from a narrow and fixed viewpoint. This, ultimately, helps one establish a universal viewpoint that is consistent with reality.

Hubbard’s language is difficult to interpret. But by substituting the word “thetan” by the word “viewpoint” one can get a realistic understanding of what is truly meant here. If you find it difficult to do this visualization go to Step II.

STEP II—BY ORIENTATION: Ask the preclear, still inside, to locate the inside of his forehead. Ask him to put a pressor beam against it and push himself out the back of his head. Supplement this by asking him to reach out through the back of his head and grab the wall with a pulling beam and pull himself out. Ask him to steady himself outside and then, by means of beams, to raise and lower himself while outside and to move to various parts of the room while still outside. Use creative processing. By orientation as a thetan, placing himself as a thetan in time and space, he becomes sure of his whereabouts. Have him find and cast off old lines which have their terminals fixed to him. Have him find those lines wherever they are and attach them to radiators and water taps as the energy will drain out of him. (The II ordinarily has enough lines to cause him to snap back in the head when he releases beams.) Failing this, go to Step III.

This is a fun way to extrovert the attention with respect to the body. Creative processing simply means creative visualizations as suggested above. This is all mental visualization but this does enlarge the viewpoint with respect to the body.

Here you visualize pushing your viewpoint out the back of your head. One is visualizing these beams to help move the viewpoint. Use visualizations as suggested above but you can get creative beyond them. This can be a lot of fun. The idea is to change the belief that your position is fixed by the body both in space and time.  You are more than the body because you have the power to visualize. This is the power of an artist. You can visualize a position in space and time independent of the body. This gives you the certainty of being in control of yourself.

“Old lines with terminals fixed to him” means communications that you desired but you never initiated or communications that you started but you never completed, etc. This leaves your attention fixed on certain people, things, places, etc. The idea is to find such lines and drain them of their influence over you. You may do this by the visualizations suggested above. But you can get creative with all sorts of visualizations here. If you find it difficult to do this step then go to Step III.

Step III—SPACE PROCESSING: In that the MEST universe has forced upon the thetan its spatial dimensions and directions, the thetan is likely to become a point which is being subjected to all the counter-efforts and counter-emotions of his environment, for his entire concept of space is being determined by the MEST universe. Have the thetan, still inside, find his feet in the opposite direction from where the MEST body is located by the MEST universe. Have him turn the feet around. Have him create differences in his body and reverse various limbs and positions according to his viewpoint, each one in disagreement with the MEST universe, particularly as appertaining to gravity and other influences. This sets up an ability to disagree with the MEST universe in terms of space. Have him locate his eyes in the back of his head, on the soles of his feet and in other places. Have him assume other bodies, each time changing them slightly, and putting them away. Then have him gather himself into his normal MEST universe spatial areas and go to Step I.

For most practical purposes, body represents the “MEST universe” and your viewpoint represents the “thetan”. So, your viewpoint is being constrained by the body in many ways, such as, where your viewpoint can be located. The way that body has been affected by the environment reflects in your viewpoint.

Here we have another set of visualizations that may help free up your viewpoint’s dependence on the body. For example, visualize being inside the body. This is the default viewpoint, where feel yourself to be one with the body. Now visualize your feet being in a direction opposite to the feet of the body. Then turn your feet around to make then coincide with the feet of the body. This actually produces an interesting sensation.

Continue with the visualizations as suggested in the write-up above and become creative. You can visualize skydiving and bungee jumping and opposing gravitational influences. You can inhabit animal bodies or even the bodies of other people. Just get your clues from the write up above.

The basic idea is to disagree with the spatial reality as dictated by the body and see what happens if you do so. In the end, visualize yourself being in your own body at its current location in the proper orientation. Then go back to Step I.

STEP IV—RIDGE RUNNING: Ask the preclear to give himself a command to walk. Let him locate the white flow line which results inside his head. When this line goes dark, have him locate the tiny ridge inside the skull that stopped it. Have him run the flow from this barrier (these barriers, are tiny ridges and each has a thought with it such as “Can’t walk” or “Too bored to walk”) back toward the spot where he told himself to walk. It will run white for a moment, then go black. Have him give himself the command to walk again and “watch” this flow line. It may run through two or three tiny barriers and then stop. Again have him run the “objection” to walking. Have him watch this “objection” flow until it goes black. Then have him give himself the Command to walk again and so on and so on. He will wind up at some outside point. Now have him give himself the command “Listen” and have him run this and its back flows on “black and white” until he is exterior on the subject of listen. Then use the command “Talk” similarly. Then the command “Nod,” then the command “Move,” etc. Give “Look” last for it may “blind” his perception of black and white. He may each time get out to a distance in another quarter. If he can do all this, start with Step I again. Failing this step, failing to “see” black and white energy manifestations, go to Step V.

Here Hubbard’s terminology needs to be explained. A “ridge” is suspended energy in space, for example, if attention is stuck on something that would be a ridge. Similarly, if the person is holding on to some arbitrary consideration, and not letting it go, then that would also be a ridge.

“White” is a state of perception where a person can differentiate what is going on. “Black” is an uncomfortable state where one is unable to differentiate.

On this step one gives himself a very simple command, such as, “Walk”. The person then looks to see if that command is being processed in his mind comfortably. He waits to see if the command runs into any stops due to misunderstanding or objection. When it does, he locates the “stop” and meditates on its nature. He simply observes non-judgmentally without thinking one way or the other. He does so until no new awareness is coming up.

He gives himself the same command again and watches for a new stop. If there is one, he treats it as before. By the time there are no more stops he has obtained good awareness of mental processes on that command. He then takes up the next command “Listen” and continues as above.

He takes up subsequent commands in the order: “Talk”, “Nod”, “Move”, etc. The last command he takes up is “Look”. The idea here is to gain better awareness of mental processes. If you can do all this, start with step I again.

STEP V—BLACK AND WHITE CONTROL PROCESSING: Give the preclear a complete E-meter assessment, using the principles of what he would create or destroy or would not create and would not destroy. Use this data to make mock-ups. Then have the preclear create and perceive black spots and then white spots, black crosses and white crosses, and move these here and there through the room or through his own space. Turn them on and off, interchange them, put them in yesterday, put them in tomorrow, make them get larger, make them get smaller; each time doing as much as the preclear can do. Each time one asks him to perceive one of his own created illusions in terms of black and white spots or crosses, one attempts to coax him into successful control of it. Audit very persuasively and lightly. This preclear ordinarily is frightened of blackness because it either can contain dangerous things or contains nothing, and he cannot differentiate which. Thus he cannot control blackness and, in being unable to control blackness, flounders in it. He also has a more basic computation: that blackness is the only safe thing in which to hide and, therefore, blackness is a thing to have. Further, blackness “takes” things for him. This preclear may be afraid of the police, may believe himself to have a hideous body, thetawise, and has many other reasons why he cannot exteriorize. Drills on creating and perceiving black and white should be continued until he can handle each easily. The trouble with this preclear and preclears lower than this is that they have agreed too heavily with the MEST universe and must be very cautious in confronting it, since in that direction they conceive to lie a much more complete defeat even than that from which they are now suffering. Audit him also very heavily on Creative Processing.

Then go through steps again. If the preclear is immediately perceived to have little or no reality on ANY incident, go to Step VI.

Make a list of what you would create or destroy or would not create and would not destroy. Put those items first in the list that readily come to the mind. You will be using this data to make mock-ups (visualizations). Create what you would not create and destroy what you would not destroy. Do it lightly and on a gradient as fun. The idea is to overcome thought resistance so you can have control over your thoughts.

Mock up stuff that is difficult to differentiate (black spots, black crosses, etc.), and stuff that can easily be differentiated (white spots, white crosses, etc.). You may literally create black and white spots and crosses with the understanding of black and white. Do creative processing with these items as described above. Do as much as you can do. This will help you extrovert your attention from all this stuff.

There may be things that introvert your attention, such as, sickness, criminality, police, secrets, etc. These are black things. Mix them up with white things that help extrovert your attention. Continue to mock this stuff up and move it around according to creative processing until your attention extroverts from it. Heavy use of creative processing is recommended. Then go back to step I. Go to the next step if things continue to be unreal.

STEP VI—ARC STRAIGHT WIRE: Drill, by direct questioning, on locks until the preclear can remember something really “real” to him, something which he “really loved,” something with which he was in communication. Then drill him on creating illusions until he is certain he has created one which really isn’t real, which he is certain HE put the emotion and perceptions into. Then go through steps again. Failing Step VI after a quick test, go to Step VII.

A lock is a minor incident caused by misunderstanding where attention gets stuck. Find such an incident which is really real to you. You know with certainty that it did happen. You know the details of this incident as to who you were in communication with, who you liked or disliked, etc. Once you have such an incident, start visualizing something that is entirely your creation. You know that all of it is your creation. You have set up the scenario, generated the characters, put together the script, placed the emotions, etc. You work with this visualization until you know with certainty that it did not happen in reality. Then go back to step I. Go to the next step only if you cannot do this step.

STEP VII—PRESENT TIME BODY ORIENTATION: Have preclear locate a part of his body and recognize it as such. Have him locate furniture, fixtures, auditor in room. Have him locate the town and country he is in. Get him to find something in present time which is really real to him, with which he can communicate. Work on this until he can do this. Then go to Step VI. Then go to Step I.

This is objective processing. There is no thinking involved here. The whole idea is to get in intimate touch with physical reality by directly experiencing it through physical senses. Find out where things are, and where you are. Find something that is really real to you, and with which you can communicate.  Work on this step until your attention is extroverted enough to do Step VI. Then go to step I.



Here we have the very first Scientology process. The goal is to accomplish Step I. Other steps are there to help you accomplish Step I. Once you are progressing well on Step 1, you may continue to apply it to any and all aspects of your life.


SCN 8-8008: Creative Processing

Creative Processing

Standard Operating Procedure for theta clearing is the backbone of processing in Scientology. It is easily followed but the auditor should have an excellent command of all types of processing in order to use it more successfully.

The purpose of theta clearing is to stably exteriorize the thetan. In ordinary language, this means stably extroverting the attention of the person. This is done through Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) described later.

NOTE: SOP focuses on improving the viewpoint of the person. It does not directly address the physical health of the body.

SOP is most easily done and most successfully by an auditor who is a theta clear. Auditors, who are not theta clear, seldom understand it, and a low-toned uncleared auditor who cannot himself leave his body very often acts to pin a preclear inside his body. It is noteworthy that many auditors have been unable to obtain successes with theta clearing before they themselves have been cleared, but immediately after the auditor was cleared, he was successful with each successive case without exception. The fear of some thetans from various causes of leaving the body causes the auditor—who is the thetan—to make other thetans stay in bodies, and it is actually quite dangerous to be audited by auditors who are not theta clears. The process is not dangerous; uncleared auditors are.

A theta clear is a person who is stably extroverted in his attention. To Hubbard this was literally “a thetan existing stably outside the body.” But that is a subjective belief only. Hubbard is essentially observing that an introverted auditor cannot help another person extrovert. This problem is avoided by the person auditing himself through the medium of mindfulness meditation.



Hubbard’s auditing uses the model set up by psychoanalysis. In this model a practitioner audits a person.  Buddha’s model of mindfulness meditation, however, does not require a practitioner.  It bypasses the problem of practitioners who are not up to the task.

Auditing, however, is a valuable contribution by Hubbard, which is likely to improve the effectiveness of mindfulness meditation.


SCN 8-8008: Postulate Processing

Reference: SCIENTOLOGY 8-8008

This paper presents Section 43 from the book SCIENTOLOGY 8-8008 by L. RON HUBBARD. The contents are from the original publication of this book by The Church of Scientology (1952).

The paragraphs of the original material (in black) are accompanied by brief comments (in color) based on the present understanding.  Feedback on these comments is appreciated.

Postulate Processing

Actually energy is produced by the thetan simply by postulating that it will be in existence. What he says will be so, becomes so for him; if he becomes extremely powerful, it becomes so for others. This condition has been misused by most thetans who, often in the past, have been afraid of making postulates that will come true. They believe that if they say a thing will happen, it will then happen—to such an extent that they now revulse against stating anything will happen.

A postulate is something that a person believes in with total conviction. It may arise from an agreement, or from an evaluation, or it may just be arbitrary. A postulate influences a person’s thinking and efforts. Misuse of the power to postulate has made people averse to making postulates.

Another aberrative condition with regard to postulates is that for the sake of randomity, the thetan at some time or another has set up the postulate that every time he makes a postulate a reverse postulate will occur which he will not know about, in such a way that he can “play chess with himself” without spoiling the game by knowing what his left hand is doing when his right makes the move.

A person can be inhibited from making postulates, if he does not know all his existing postulates and gets surprising results when he makes a postulate.

It is not true that postulates have to be located all through the facsimiles and worn out by repetition. It is just as easy to make new postulates: but first one must recover from the depths to which his postulates have taken him. The most dangerous postulates are those postulates where one decided to agree with something which would become aberrative.

A person need not grind away to get rid of an aberrative postulate. He may simply make a new postulate. But first he must recover from the depths to which his aberrative postulate took him down to by understanding what happened.

You can see by examining any facsimile in the preclear related to an accident that the most aberrative things in that facsimile are what the preclear himself decided.

The most aberrative postulate is one that the person himself decided, and not just agreed with.

Postulates are accompanied by evaluations and conclusions. It is often possible to “loosen” a postulate by discovering to the preclear why he made it, or what data he was using at the time.

A person can “loosen” a postulate by discovering why he made it, and what data he was using at that time.

As a preclear becomes very aberrated and believes himself to be more and more MEST, his postulates become as unwieldy to use as actual objects, and he finds them as difficult to change as objects.

A person who has become very aberrated treats his postulates as if they are material objects.

When doing creative processing and moving objects and energy in created space and time, the preclear is doing this by making postulates. It comes as a shock to some preclears that they are handling time by shifting space. One handles time by simply saying that he had a thing and now he does not have it, or that he will have or will view a thing in the future. One does not shift time by shifting space, nor does one continue to look at something he has put into the past. He says it is in the past and so it becomes in the past.

In creative processing, a person is moving objects and energy by postulates. This is actually handling time. There is the action of putting things in past or future.

When the thetan is unable to handle postulates about time, the auditor should ask him about some MEST universe incident such as breakfast, and then enquire how he remembered that he had breakfast, and if he will have something to eat on the morrow, and then how he knows he will have something to eat on the morrow. He does not look at his breakfast to find out if he had breakfast, he knows that he ate breakfast; and he does not go into tomorrow to find out if he will probably eat on the morrow, he knows—or, at least, believes it possible—that he will eat on the morrow. Moving time, as in any other postulate. is knowingness not viewingness. An object goes into the past in the same space as it was in, in the present; and in the future may be in the same space as it was in in the past. The space does not change the condition of havingness changes, and one estimates this by some degree of knowingness.

When a person cannot put things in past or future, have him remember a past incident and ask him how he knows it is in the past. Similarly, if he knows something will happen in the future, how does he know it? Postulate requires knowingness. It is not just viewingness. An object may remain in the same space while being moved into past or future. It is a change in havingness.

The entire subject of postulates is the subject of certainty and self-belief. That preclear who has a low self-belief finds it difficult first, to make a postulate which he will believe and second, to undo one he has made. Creative processing and postulate processing alike remedy this.

Postulate has to do with total conviction.

Rising-scale processing is another way of doing postulate processing. One takes any point or column of the Chart of Attitudes as given in this text, which the preclear can reach, and asks the preclear then to shift his postulate upwards toward a higher level.

In order to do this the auditor says, “Now, on the subject of rightness and wrongness, how wrong do you think you generally are?” The preclear tells him. The auditor says, “How high can you shift this attitude toward believing yourself right?” The preclear shifts the attitude as high as he can. The auditor takes this as the next level from which he will work upward until he attains as nearly as possible a postulate which will “hold” to the effect that the preclear believes himself right. Rising-scale processing should not be confused with the processing of flows. One can process all these columns in terms of flows. Rising-scale processing is simply a method of shifting postulates upward toward optimum from where the preclear believes he is on the chart. Rising-scale processing is essentially a process directed toward increasing belief in self by using all the “buttons” on the Chart of Attitudes.

The above are the instructions for Rising-scale processing. One is establishing one’s convictions on a gradient basis. One should be able to do it oneself in a meditation session.

The preclear is generally found to be quite uncertain about his postulates. He does not know whether or not what he says will take effect or, if he says it and if it takes effect, if it will not rebound upon him. He becomes afraid to make postulates for fear he will make some postulate destructive to himself or others and may even discover himself making postulates to convince himself he should be ill.

It takes time to establish the conviction of a postulate. In science, a postulate is tested thoroughly before it is accepted. This should be the same in life. Testing allows one to discover the inconsistencies and correct them.

One has to tell oneself what to be before one is. Recovery of this ability is the essence of processing a thetan.

One must postulate a certain beingness before one can be that.

Postulate processing is a very vital process to apply to the thetan: when he is exteriorized, he can change his postulates rapidly. If he finds himself thinking slowly and doing other things which are not optimum when he is outside, one can better his situation and condition by asking him to change postulates.

A person can postulate very successfully when he is exteriorized. “Being exteriorized” means that the person’s attention is completely extroverted.



Here Hubbard is focusing on postulates rather than on facsimiles. A postulate means creating a thought with total conviction. If one can do this, one can change his condition rather effortlessly.


SCN 8-8008: Methods of Running

Methods of Running

There are many methods of running facsimiles and of handling ridges and flows. These have been covered in other publications: all of them have validity and can advance cases.

In the present publication there are only two processes which are stressed and these processes are superior to others published prior to December 1st, 1952. A great many tests have established the fact that two processes, both of them simple, produce far better results than any of the others.

At this point in the development of Scientology many different approaches to assimilating the facsimiles into mental matrix were being published. The common denominator to all of them was the discipline of mindfulness (letting the mind unwind itself).

The title “Scientology 8—8008” means the attainment of infinity by the reduction of the MEST universe’s apparent infinity to zero and the increase of the zero of one’s own universe to an infinity of one’s own universe. This road is attained by postulate processing and creative processing.

The aim of processing is elimination of the conditioning of mind, and to restore the person’s self-determinism. This is done by postulate processing and creative processing.

To run any incident or use any process it is necessary for the auditor to have a very sound idea of what he is doing, and to this end it is recommended that he know and be able to use the following:


The Code
The Theta Entity
The Entities
Running Engrams
Running Secondaries
Running Locks
Concepts and Feelings
Running Ridges (Circuits)
Running Live Flow
Freeing the Thetan by Concept and Feeling
Freeing the Thetan by Present and Future
Freeing by Dichotomies
Freeing by Tone Scale
Freeing the Thetan by Orientation
Freeing the Thetan by Positioning and Exhaustion of Flows

The Code seems to refer to the Code of Honor. The Theta Entity is the thetan. The entities are ridges to which facsimiles are attached. Engram is an unassimilated node in the mental matrix. Secondaries are emotions locked in the engram. Locks are experiences extending from the engram. Concepts and feelings are general impressions of the engram. Ridges (circuits) are the thinking emanating from engram. Live flow is the dynamic influence of the engram. “Freeing the Thetan” is the freeing of fixed attention or viewpoint. This is done through various processes.

SCN 8-8008: The Dichotomies

Reference: SCIENTOLOGY 8-8008

This paper presents Section 41 from the book SCIENTOLOGY 8-8008 by L. RON HUBBARD. The contents are from the original publication of this book by The Church of Scientology (1952).

The paragraphs of the original material (in black) are accompanied by brief comments (in color) based on the present understanding.  Feedback on these comments is appreciated.

The Dichotomies

While the auditor can do much solely by reducing facsimiles, he soon will find that his preclears are not always able to erase facsimiles easily. He will find occasionally that he often has a difficult time when a particularly heavy facsimile is in restimulation and, do what he will, the auditor may find his preclear’s tone remains unchanged and that the preclear’s attitudes have not evolved to a better high.

Auditing is allowing facsimiles to be assimilated into the mental matrix. But this doesn’t always happen. Hubbard’s reasoning is that the preclear is not self-determined enough.

We now come to “The Governor” mentioned in a lecture in the autumn of 1951. The speed of a preclear is the speed of his production of energy.

The most important step in establishing a preclear’s self-determinism, the main goal of the auditor, is the rehabilitation of the preclear’s ability to produce energy.

To establish a preclears self-determinism, the auditor must rehabilitate the preclear’s ability to produce energy.

A being is, apparently, an energy production source. How does he produce live energy without mechanical means, cellular activity, or food?

The basic principle of energy production by a being has been copied in electronics. It is very simple. A difference of potential of two areas can establish an energy flow of themselves. Carbon batteries, electric generators, and other producers of electrical flows act on the principle that a difference of energy potential in two or more areas can cause an electrical impulse to flow between or amongst them.

Energy production depends on a difference in potential.

The preclear is static and kinetic, meaning he is no-motion and motion. These, interplaying, produce electrical flow.

A preclear as a static can hold two or more energy flows of different wavelengths in proximity and between them obtain a flow.

A preclear can hold a difference of flow between two waves and a static so long (and arduously) that the effect of a discharging condenser can be obtained. This can “explode” a facsimile.

A large difference in potential can “explode” a facsimile.

The preclear flows electrical currents of command at the body. These hit pre-established ridges (areas of dense waves) and cause the body to perceive or act. The preclear takes perception from the body with tractor beams. He holds the body still or braces himself against it by wrapping a tractor (pulling) beam around it while he places a pressor (pushing) beam at his back to command himself into action. (You can almost break a preclear’s spine by asking him to contract his own tractor around his body and yet withhold the pressor against his spine.)

All an auditor really needs to know about this is the elementary method of using a difference of potential. That creates energy.

The only thing wrong with a preclear with an aged MEST body is that he has too many facsimiles of his tractors and pressors handling his own MEST body and the rickety state of the body feeds back “slowness” so that he thinks his energy is low—and until worked with some method such as this, facsimiles do not reduce.

Any difference of potential played one against the other creates energy. Aesthetic waves against a static produce energy. Aesthetic waves against analytical waves produce energy. Analytical waves against emotional waves produce energy. Emotional waves against effort waves produce energy. Effort against matter produces energy.

There is potential difference from static to aesthetic to analytical to emotional to effort to matter.

The last is the method used on Earth in generating electrical current for power. The others are equally valid and produce even higher flows. This is a gradient scale of beingness, from the zero-infinity of theta to the solidity of matter.

The differences of potential most useful are easy to run.

This is, actually, alternating current running. There can be DC running or chain fission running but these are very experimental at this writing.

AC is created by the static holding first one, then the other, of a dichotomy of two differences of potential. A flow is run in one direction with one of the pair, then in the other direction with the other.

Facsimiles may be handled by running flows back and forth between dichotomies.

One asks the preclear to flow agreement, then disagreement. He flows a feeling, a thought (NEVER the phrase!) of “agreement” out or in, in the direction he chooses relative to himself. He lets this flow until it turns smoky grey or white, then black. Then he changes the direction of flow and gets the thought or feeling of “disagreement”. He runs this until it turns grey or white, then black. When this has turned black or dark, he again runs “agreement” in its direction until he gets grey or white, then again black. Now he reverses the flow and flows the thought “disagreement” until he gets grey or white, then blackness. And so on and on.

A flow is run in one direction with one of the pair, then in the other direction with the other. An example would be you send out the feeling of agreement with survive and then you let the feeling of disagreement with succumb come in. There will be a sensation of flow, when it stops let the flow reverse.

It will be noted that at first it may take some little time for a flow to run from black through white to black. As the preclear continues to run, after minutes or many hours, he begins to run faster, then faster and faster, until at last he can keep a flow blazing and crackling.

Continue this way with the flow going back and forth.

A method of aberrating beings was to give them white and black energy sources in their vicinity. These show up on a very low tone occluded case as blazing white and shining white. That is an electronic incident, not his own energy flow. These run blazing white in one direction for minutes or hours before they go black. They then run the other way, blazing white, almost as long.

This is running facsimiles similar to doing the OT TR 0 exercise.


When there is no sensation of flow can be established simply consider the dichotomies in a wider context.

As the preclear runs, he finds the speed of the change of flow changes, more and more rapidly until it runs like a vibration. This vibration, theoretically, can increase to a strong current which becomes so great it is well to ground your preclear by using an E-meter or letting him hold a wire in each hand which is connected to a bare water pipe or radiator. Otherwise, his MEST body may be damaged by the flow.

As you run the flows back and forth, the frequency will gradually increase.

Run a dichotomy only against its mate. Run in alternating directions until the flow turns black.

Don’t run a black “flow.” It doesn’t flow or run out.

Do this until the flows have exhausted themselves and the mental matrix is assimilated.



Auditing (meditation) allows facsimiles to be assimilated into the mental matrix. Facsimiles may be handled by running flows back and forth between dichotomies.

A flow is run in one direction with one of the pair, then in the other direction with the other. An example would be you send out the feeling of agreement with survive and then you let in the feeling of disagreement with succumb. There will be a sensation of flow. When this sensation stops let the flow reverse and the sensation will return.

Continue this way with the flow going back and forth. This is running facsimiles similar to doing the OT TR 0 exercise. When no sensation of flow simply consider the dichotomies in a wider context.

Let the frequency of back and forth running of flows increase until the flows have exhausted themselves and the mental matrix is assimilated.
