Comments on CHAPTER TWO
Clarity of Total Knowingness

Hubbard’s effort  in HISTORY OF MAN was to use these “whole track incidents” as archetypes to detect and assimilate actual impressions existing in a person’s mind. He called it CREATIVE PROCESSING.

Hubbard says,

Creative processing does not address the facsimiles as such, it breaks agreement on the power of the facsimiles. In order to audit a preclear however, one should have a very good acquaintance with what the facsimiles contain. If he has this information, it is relatively simple for him to give the preclear “mockups” which approximate the material in facsimiles without telling the preclear why such mock-ups are being given to him; the facsimiles yet will themselves desensitize.

This is just a trial and error approach, because when you assess these archetypes with an E-meter, you have no idea what the E-meter is truly reacting to. In Subject Clearing you assess these archetypes by your gut felling as you understand them. Then you audit them with “be there and confront” as covered in TR0 with Mindfulness.

The target consists of unassimilated impressions. Such impressions are made of theta, which is thoughts, emotion, effort, and attention in confusion. The process of “be there and confront” spots anomalies in that confusion and clears up the underlying assumptions.

The targets of auditing are:

CELLULAR INJURY: Any physical injury we suffer involves cells. Here we are looking at the pain of direct injury and not the pain of psychosomatic illnesses. The target of auditing in this case is the actual injury.

GENETIC ENTITY: These are cellular experiences, which are carried forward through DNA programming. To access these impressions, one centers attention on the stomach area, and becomes aware of the whole body structure.

INJECTED ENTITIES: These are unassimilated impressions associated with geographical areas of the body, as described in the chapter. These areas are related to major nerve centers in the body. The anomalies appear as “frozen viewpoints” or “fixations.” These may be audited.

THETA BEINGS: This is who the person thinks he is. Theta being seems to represent the analytical ability of the mind, which does not exist in animals. The unassimilated impressions associated with the “I” are the most important target. Out of the resolution of these anomalies will come a better understanding of who one really is.

Hubbard postulates the theta being to be immortal. An immortal beingness would be an unchanging state. This universe consists of cycles within cycles, where nothing ever remains the same. But there is be an aspect of the universe, which may be considered immortal. It is the ultimate viewpoint of Total Knowingness. A person may attain this viewpoint, as described in The Static Viewpoint.

A theta being may not have a body, but it does need a mind to think, make facsimiles, experience emotions, remember or perceive. By clearing this mind, the theta being may attain the viewpoint of Total Knowingness.

Awareness is the property of the assimilated mental matrix. An unassimilated impression (engram) has no awareness. So, when the engram is using the motor controls of the body, no awareness of it exists. Hypnotism operates through an unassimilated impression. All the entities that Dianetics talks about are unassimilated impressions.

The body-mind is a single system. The physical body may be looked upon as the extension of the mind. The unassimilated impressions are the “fixations” existing in this body-mind system. Clearing of the theta being includes the clearing of genetic entity, injected entities, etc.

The theta being is that aspect of the body-mind system, which may be considered immortal. It is not something separate and by itself.

Hubbard is talking about abilities, such as, manufacturing bodies that do not have to be fed. He presented them as theoretical possibilities only. Such abilities were never demonstrated by him.

DEFINITIONS

CREATIVE PROCESSING
Creative processing consists of having the preclear make, with his own creative energies, a mockup.

ELECTRONICS
Lower and cruder manifestations of the same order of actuality as thought. [NOTE: Electronic incidents appear to be heavy stimulus-response type incidents found on the “whole track”. They consist of concentrated energy.]

GENETIC ENTITY
Formerly referred to as the somatic mind. It has no real personality, it is not the “I” of the body. This is the “mind” of an animal, a dog or a cat or a cow. [The genetic entity is the programming carried forward by the DNA molecules from its earliest moments along the evolutionary line.]

SOMATIC
By somatic is meant a pain or ache sensation and also misemotion or even unconsciousness; awareness, pleasant or unpleasant, of a body.

THETA
Theta is thought; an energy of its own universe analogous to energy in the physical universe but only occasionally paralleling electromagnetic-gravitic laws.

THETA BEING
The “I,” it is who the person is. [Note: The theta being is that aspect of the body-mind system, which may be considered immortal. It is not something separate and by itself.]

THETA BODY
It is the body of theta carried by the theta being. It consists of a number of facsimiles of old bodies he has misowned and is carrying along with him as control mechanisms.

Comments: The Route to Clear

Reference: A History of Man

Reference: CHAPTER ONE

Comments on CHAPTER ONE
The Route to Clear

This chapter asserts that the problem of HOW to audit the mind has been resolved. So, it is time to focus on WHAT to audit with the assistance of an E-meter.

It is common sense that one should start with whatever is bothering a person the most. But Hubbard had theorized in Dianetics that much more could be accomplished by auditing the earliest engram on the case. The person had a time-track, which extended back from the present life to the genetic line, and even earlier to the “whole track.”

Hubbard believed that the “whole track” incidents were the earliest; and auditing them was the fastest route to clearing the person. His goal was to produce a Clear. His theory was that earlier incidents held later incidents in place. Therefore, he assumed that there must be a FAC 1 or “basic-basic” on the time-track that was keeping a person’s whole case in place. Such a “basic-basic” had to exist way back at the beginning of the “whole track.” Hubbard believed that everybody possessed a “whole track” and a “basic-basic.” To him, the fastest route to Clear was to find the “basic-basic” of a person as soon as possible, and erase it. The E-meter was just the right tool for it.

This was in 1952. Hubbard tried hard but he could never find the “basic-basic” on a case. Seventy years have passed since the E-meter first came into use. The E-meter has been improved even after Hubbard passed away in 1986. Still, the E-meter has never been able to detect a “basic-basic.”

Today, we know that any case has few engrams only, and once they are detected and erased, it is very difficult to find more engrams. But plenty of anomalies (outpoints) can be found on a case. The person makes progress by eliminating such anomalies. Actually, Buddha emphasized the handling of anomalies in his Kalama Sutta. Hubbard also tried to handle these anomalies under the guise of “body thetans” on OT Levels.

The matrix model of the mind explains the structure of the analytical and reactive minds in more detail. It explains what happens after the first few engrams on the case are erased, and why it becomes difficult to find more engrams. The fact is: as a person goes up the Grade Chart his awareness increases. The person’s gut feeling becomes more effective than the E-meter. The engram actually appears as a number of anomalies.

There is no FAC 1 or BASIC-BASIC. An engram actually appears as a “set of anomalies” as awareness increases.

The “whole track” incidents may serve the same function as myths in religion, in the sense that they may provide archetypes useful in detecting anomalies.

The best approach is to start a case with an actual anomaly in the present time that is bothering the person, and trace it back to more basic anomalies and, ultimately, to the gap in the person’s awareness.

Such gap is hidden underneath some projection or assumption. As a person becomes aware of such projections or assumptions in his thinking, realization occur that fill those gaps in awareness.

There seem to exist no single point, such as a basic-basic, to which the whole case converges. Instead, the case consists of gaps in awareness covered by projections or assumptions.

As these gaps are filled, a more basic layer of gaps is, then, discovered. And, so it goes.

A person becomes Clear, when the few engrams on his case are erased and his awareness comes up to a point that he can spot anomalies in his environment and in his own thinking. The technology of handling such anomalies is Subject Clearing, which is based on the Data Series of L. Ron Hubbard.

.

DEFINITIONS

BASIC-BASIC
Any similar circumstance repetitive through a person’s whole track has a first time it occurred and that first time that it occurred we call basic-basic. [Note: A cycle simply keeps repeating. It may not have a beginning or end.]

CLEAR
The Clear has no engrams which can be restimulated to throw out the correctness of computation by entering hidden and false data in it. [Note: The state of clear comes about when all unassimilated impressions from present and the past are broken down into perceptual elements and assimilated in the mental matrix.]

FAC 1
Facsimile One; the one basic engram on top of which all this life engrams are mere locks. [Note: This has to be something very general; it cannot be a specific incident.]

Comments: Theory Asserted as Factual

Reference: A History of Man

Reference: FOREWORD

Comments on FOREWORD
Theory Asserted as Factual

The HISTORY OF MAN contains a theory of Hubbard, which he developed with the help of the E-meter. See E-Meter and OT Auditing.

In this foreword, Hubbard is making a big deal out of the idea of whole track because it is something new to the Western civilization. But the whole track has been known in ancient India as SAMSKARAS (latent impressions that manifest as tendencies) that get passed down from one life time to the next. This has been known in India since Buddha’s time, or maybe even earlier.

So, the whole track is not really the issue. The issue is Hubbard’s theory of the whole track.

Miraculous results are achieved when samskaras (latent impressions) are resolved through meditation. Of course, abilities are recovered too when such impressions are assimilated in the mental matrix. This has happened routinely in India. Nobody cares about the content of such impressions, because it is not relevant to the process of meditation. In the book, HISTORY OF MAN, however, Hubbard has come up with a theory about the content of such impressions, because it, apparently, helps the process of auditing.

Hubbard theory relates to the contents of the whole track.

Hubbard says,

“By adding up and checking probabilities on scores of persons, the character, extent and content of the whole track was mapped. Once the E-meter gave reliable data, the main problem became the estimation of intentions, of sources, of the reasons behind the reasons…”

When the e-meter’s needle reacts on a question it doesn’t necessarily means that the answer to the question be interpreted as YES or NO. It simply means that there is a charge on how the question is being interpreted by the mind.

THE E-METER DOES NOT VALIDATE A QUESTION OR ITS IMPLIED CONTENT.

The E-meter was used by Hubbard to date the “incident” on the time-track. For example, Hubbard would come up with a number like “3,296,843,125 years ago.” But the E-meter is not reacting to that particular number in the person’s mind. It, however, is reacting to some anomaly that we know nothing about. The number may serve to put he attention of the person on the anomaly. This does not mean that the datum “3,296,843,125 years ago” can unquestionably be admitted as factual.

Hubbard has the past track data described in the book HISTORY OF MAN with E-meter’s help; but the literalness of all that data is suspect. For example, when you ask a person about his identity in a past life, he may get a picture of being the Buddha. But that is merely a dream-like picture, which may represent some feeling, tendency, or desire.

THE E-METER DOES NOT PROVIDE ANY CONTENT IN RESPONSE TO A QUESTION.

Unfortunately, Hubbard used the E-meter to validate his own theory for the whole track’s content. He formulated questions based on his theory. Then, if the meter reacted to the question, he assumed the implication from that question to be correct. Thus he “verified” his theory from E-meter reactions.

Hubbard’s theory about the contents of the whole track, thus, became factual data to him.

Many of Hubbard’s followers have taken Hubbard’s SCI-FI type assertions about the whole track as factual. This seems to have led them, in many cases, down a rabbit hole.

The whole track in Scientology is simply a dreamlike visualization of various mental tendencies, and nothing more.

.

DEFINITIONS

E-METER
Electropsychometer; An electronic instrument for measuring mental state and change of state in individuals, as an aid to precision and speed in auditing. [Note: The E-meter actually measures change in body resistance in reaction to momentary thought.]

WHOLE TRACK
The whole track is the moment to moment record of a person’s existence in this universe in picture and impression form. [Note: The whole track is made of impressions on the mind that are not necessarily continuous.]

Reference: Data Series 25—LEARNING TO USE DATA ANALYSIS

LEARNING TO USE DATA ANALYSIS

View Post

The first section lists the barriers to being able to use Data Analysis and how to handle them.

.

THE BEGINNER

When one begins to apply Data Analysis he is often still trying to grasp the data about Data Analysis rather than the out-points in the Data. Just become more familiar with the Data Series.

To know the Ideal Scene one has only to work out the correct products for it. If these aren’t getting out, then there is a departure. By handling one is simply trying to get the scene to get out its products. Unless one proceeds from product back to Establishment, one can’t analyze much of anything.

There is always a product for any scene. A product is something on can HAVE. It is a completed thing that has Exchange value within or outside the activity. If there were no product, there could not really be an Ideal Scene.

.

STANDARD ACTION

A beginner can juggle around and go badly adrift if he doesn’t follow the pattern:

  1. Work out exactly what the (person, unit, activity) should be producing.
  2. Work out the Ideal Scene.
  3. Investigate the existing scene.
  4. Follow outpoints back from Ideal to existing.
  5. Locate the real WHY that will move the existing toward Ideal.
  6. Look over existing resources. 7. 
  7. Get a Bright Idea of how to handle.
  8. Handle or recommend handling so that it stays handled.

.

THINKING

One has to be able to think with outpoints. A crude way of saying this is “learn to think like an idiot”. One could also add “without abandoning any ability to think like a genius”.

An Evaluator who listens to people on the scene and takes their WHYs runs a grave risk. If these were the Whys then things would be better. 

A far safer way is to talk only insofar as finding what the product is concerned and investigating. Get the big peak period of production (now or in the past). Compare it to the existing scene just before. 

.

VETERAN 

A veteran evaluator can toss off evaluations in an hour or two, mainly based on how long it takes him to dig up data. A big tough situation may require days and days. 

Man gets dedicated to his own pet theories very easily. A true scientist doesn’t fixate on one idea. He keeps looking until he finds it, not until his pet theory is proven. That’s the test of an evaluator. 

.

STATISTICS 

One always runs by statistics where these are valid. Statistics must reflect actual desired PRODUCT. If they do not they are not valid. If they do they give an idea of Ideal Scene.
