Body Thetan

Reference: Subject: Scientology Fundamentals

The definition of BODY THETAN gets its force from the definition of THETAN.  Per the HISTORY OF MAN, a thetan is a viewpoint associated with a whole track entity. Therefore, a BODY THETAN also represents a viewpoint associated with an entity, such as, the dramatic personnel in an engram. These “dramatic personnel” are dramatized intimately by the body. This may explain the insertion of “body” in “body thetan.”

.

Definitions

Hubbard defines BODY THETAN as follows. Let’s look at each definition carefully.

“BT 1. by BODY THETAN is meant a thetan who is stuck to another thetan or body but is not in control. BTs stick to pictures, other BTs and clusters. A BT can go into a valence of anything – BTs can be being anything at all.”

A BT is modifying the expression of the thetan through the body is some way. 

“BT 2. Body thetans are just thetans. When you get rid of one he goes off and possibly squares around, picks up a body or admires daisies. He is in fact a sort of cleared being. He cannot fail to eventually, if not at once, regain many abilities. Many have been asleep for the last 75 million years.” 

A BT is more like a dormant ancient circuit.

“BT 3. Huge amounts of charge have already been removed from the case and the body thetans by Clearing and OT 1 and OT 2 to say nothing of engrams and lower grades.” 

BTs are deeper and more generalized impressions than engrams.

“BT 4. The pc cognites he is not running his own incident but a body thetan. This requires only TR 4 as it is only an origin.”

BTs are earlier identities different from the current identity of the person.

“BT 5.  BTs are sometimes not very bright and perceive poorly.”

BTs as identities are, sometimes, not very bright.

“BT 6.  If a Pre-OT can put his attention on a BT and blow it off, without even working too hard at it, BTs, with their attention must be sort of blindly in-drawn.”

BTs as identities must be shy and introspective.

.

Summary

It appears that BTs are identities that were assumed sometime or the other by the person. They are like memes. They influence the person under the radar. They could be simple or complex. They could be active or dormant. 

In a session one assumes that BTs are there and addresses them telepathically. One seems to get some kind of a response both telepathically and on the e-meter. It is like experiencing what one expects. So one may be looking at one’s own expectation—hidden or otherwise. There is definitely some, almost imperceptible, reaction in the body, which is picked up by the e-meter.

The idea of BT helps break the engram down, so it is easier to run through straight memory. These are fixed viewpoints embedded in a person’s psyche. They need to be approached in a very relaxed manner.

Mystery gets attached to BTs because they are part of confidential materials of Scientology, but one may simply look at areas of pains and sensations in the body more closely and sense the associated intentions or viewpoints. Obviously, you want to differentiate yourself from such intentions that are now influencing you adversely.

Body Thetans have the harmonics of “you reap what you sow” or “karma.”

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.

.

Grade 6: R6EW Process

Reference: Scientology Grade Processes

Here is a glossary for the key words of the Grade 6. This glossary provides the knowledge for both understanding and applying the R6EW process.

.

Grade 6 Glossary

BEING 

  1. The basic impulse of this universe is to evolve. A “Being” is simply a “mental form” of this impulse as contrasted from the physical form. 
  2. The “being” gets attached to the physical form through its considerations that do not perceive the dimensions of the universe cleanly for what they are. (See DUALITY)

CASE SUPERVISION
In Scientology, there is always somebody telling the person what to think of his case and how to run it. Scientology never trusts a person with his case. There is mistrust built into Scientology. This mistrust can be discarded once the person is trained on the discipline of how to look at his case. This discipline includes the following:

  1. Do not avoid or resist thoughts, emotions, feelings, sensations, etc. Simply confront them.
  2. Do not suppress any mental phenomena; instead let anything suppressed be released. 
  3. Let the mind unwind naturally without interference. 

CHAIN

  1. A series of recordings of similar experiences. A chain has Engrams, Secondaries and Locks. 
  2. Incidents of similar nature strung out in time. 
  3. A series of incidents of similar nature or subject matter. 

COUNTER-PURPOSE
The counter-purpose is found by simply changing the noun (the last word in the purpose) to its opposite. “To create beauty” is the opposite of “To create ugliness.” The opposite of the “end word” changes purpose to its counter-purpose. (See END WORD)

DICHOTOMY

  1. A Dichotomy in relation to GPMs means plus and minus. A plus word and a minus word. They are of the same order of things. They always belong to the same overall group or subject. A crude example would be “A Pear” and “Pearlessness”. That’s a Pair, a Dichotomy. We could have “White” and “Black” form a Dichotomy. The subject they have in common would be visibility.
  2. Plus and minus form a current between them as you will find in an electrical battery. We don’t simply mean active/passive. For example, the active, such as “Soldier” and the passive, such as “Civilian” do not form a Dichotomy. We mean the bold PLUS and MINUS of something, two opposites of a major subject or idea. They are opposite ends of the same scale.
  3. Each major idea has two parts: a PLUS and a MINUS. These are opposed to each other. They interchange current. They are in conflict. What is generally agreed to be the unwanted or poor side is minus. What is generally conceived to be all right is plus.
  4. On the subject of war the Minus to a soldier could be a pacifist activist. Or it could be a friendly soldier opposite an enemy soldier. Other example: we have the major idea that an individual has a financial status. Wealth is the PLUS and Poverty is the MINUS. So, a DICHOTOMY means two parts of a major idea. We have two opposites in active conflict with each other. 

DRAMATIZATION
Dramatization is strange and irrational behavior dictated by the Bank.

DUALITY

  1. Duality is basically the two ends of a gradient scale contrasted against each other. The whole scale may be perceived as a dimension of the universe.
  2. By considering the whole scale in its totality one becomes exterior to the duality. This means that one can compute with this scale (or dimension), rationally without becoming a part of that computation.

DUAL UNIVERSE
“The Dual Universe” simply means that the universe has dimensions. (See DUALITY)

END WORD

  1. The noun part of the purpose is called an “end word” because it occurs at the end of the statement of a purpose, such as, the word “confidence” in the statement “to develop confidence.” (See PURPOSE)
  2. An End-word is the final word of a Goal. It is always a noun or a condition made into a noun. For example, with a Goal such as “To Grab Books”, ‘Books’ is the End-word. Each End-word, however, has many verb or action words related to it, thus making up a series of Goals. (‘to grab books, ‘to read books’, to burn books’, to throw away books’, etc.) 
  3. End-words are called End-words because they come on the end of each Goal in a series. It is the End-word that is the common denominator to the whole of a GPM. 
  4. The end word is the most expressive significance in any GPM. It is the common denominator of all its reliable items. An end word appears at the end of the item, such as, the word “cats” in the item “to catch cats.” A reliable item has other  items locked on to it. The discovery of the reliable items with the end word desensitizes the GPM greatly. Each end word has many root words. In theory, End words would be the least restimulative thing to find. In actual practice the finding of end words brings the most R6 early case gain.

ENGRAM
Engrams contain pain and unconsciousness, while secondaries contain misemotion and dramatization. “Boil off” is a dramatization at the level of engrams. Engrams, secondaries and locks follow a pattern as they are exact recording. They are part of the input that is not assimilated into the mental matrix. All other input is assimilated out of which memories are reconstructed routinely as part of computations. Memories are not recordings.

EXTERIORIZATION
An exteriorization is the freeing of attention, which is usually interiorized into the unassimilated recordings of the body-mind system (the bank). A person needs to exteriorize from his bank before he can have some reality on the bank. The problem is how to exteriorize the individual so he can view his bank. 

FIXED ATTENTION
The “being” gets fixated on single values to the degree it is unable to perceive the underlying dimension(s). (See BEING)

GOAL: 

  1. A long-time effort to reach a certain end result. This end result can be a beingness, doingness or havingness. Example of a beingness: to become the leader or top figure of something. Doingness: To become the best (most skillful) chess player I can be. Havingness: To own a million dollars of property. 
  2. Over time the PC has pursued many different Goals. Some of these major Goals (one at a time) defined the Beings livingness; his beingness, doingness and havingness. To succeed the Being had to overcome obstacles and opposition.
  3. Any such Goal will have a long series of Engrams, Overts and Withholds, etc. connected to it. If we have the Goal ‘To reach the North Pole by dog sledge’ (just an example) you can imagine the troubles and hardships the person had to endure to succeed. Injury, freezing, exhaustion, starvation, fighting polar bears, causing death of other expedition members, etc. They all formed Engrams, Overts, Withholds, etc.
  4. A Goal in a GPM starts with “to” and then it has a Root and then it has an End-word. A Goal could be: “to catch cats”. “To catch” would be the root, and “cats” the End-word.

GPM (GOALS PROBLEM MASS):

  1. At the core of the mind there is a natural impulse to evolve. This impulse is expressed more specifically as goals a person is pursuing. Where the person’s goal meets constant opposition, unresolved mass is created. This is a GPM (goal problem mass). A GPM consists of a terrific significance or a lot of mass that a person cannot confront. The significance is primary; the mass is secondary. The one who is in the institution is dramatizing significance totally. The one in hospital with aches and pains is dramatizing mass. 
  2. A GPM is composed of mental masses and significances which have the same general pattern from person to person. The significances and masses in GPMs dictate certain types of aberrated attitudes and behaviors, pains, sicknesses, feelings of heaviness, tiredness, and other undesirable things. The significances are usually behind aberrated behavior; the masses, when pulled in on the individual, are more likely to cause psychosomatic illnesses, pains or feelings of heaviness and tiredness. 
  3. A mental energy-mass (or ridge) in the Preclears mind. It came about as a result of a series of long-range Goals the Preclear pursued over many lifetimes – one at the time. Each built up mass due to opposition from others and ensuing Engrams, Overts, Withholds, etc. – as explained under ‘Goals’ above. A Goal is pursued for many, many years and builds up mass. It’s what defines the persons beingness, doingness and havingness at the time.  The conflict between this Goal and the opposition it faces and continuously has to fight is the basis of the GPM. A new version of that Goal and its opposition adds a new Pair to that GPM. Each Pair is in other words a recorded “eternal conflict”. A GPM that comes about this way (as a result of living) is called an Actual GPM.
  4. The GPM is a problem created by two or more opposing ideas. They confront or oppose each other in a balanced way. This unresolved conflict of ideas or Goals results in a mental mass. A GPM is a mental energy mass.
  5. Ron Hubbard explains the basic mechanism this way: “If you took two fire hoses and pointed them at each other, their streams would not reach each other’s nozzles, but would splatter against one another in midair. If this splatter were to hang there, it would be a ball of messed up water. Call hose A the force the PC has used to execute his Goal. Call hose B the force other dynamics have used to oppose that Goal. Where these two forces have perpetually met, a mental mass is created.
  6. This is the picture of any problem – force opposing force with resultant mass. Where the PC’s Goal meets constant opposition, you have in the Reactive Mind the resultant mass caused by the two forces: GOAL = force of getting it done, OPPOSITION = force opposing it getting done. This is the Goal Problem Mass.” (excerpt from taped lecture).
  7. Any anomaly may be resolved using the GPM technology of Grade VI. Find the too opposing ideas in that anomaly. Reduce those two ideas to their broadest expression. Then find the missing gradient between them.

GPM, ACTUAL

  1. An ‘Actual Goals Problems Mass’ comes about as a result of pursuing own Goals in life and living. Within one GPM there is a series of related Goals, all related to one major subject expressed as a noun they have in common (End-word) in the Goals statements.
  2. In pursuing a Goal, the activity will generate opposition and opponents. It quickly develops into a game with two sides. The Terminal (self) pursuing the Goal on the one side and the opposition and opponents on the other; the opposed side adds up to what we call the Opposition Goal and the Opposition Terminal (Opp-Term). The two sides of the conflict (Terminal><Opposition Terminal) are under one is called a Pair.
  3. Such a conflict builds up a mass. At some point the Preclear decided to give up on that Goal. Failures, Engrams, Overts and Withholds will have added up and made it too hard to continue. The Preclear will try a slightly different approach, the next Goal in that GPM. After a while that is too painful to pursue as well. The recording in the mind of each conflict is left behind and the Preclear will go on to a new approach. We get a series of Pairs consisting of real identities, so-called reliable Items (RIs) operating on opposite Goals. There is a finite number of such Pairs in each Actual GPM. Each Pair is related to the next Pair in a set pattern. In other words, within such a series of Goals the next Goal in line is a close relative to the previous one. Fictive example: The person’s beingness could be a “God’s Man” with the Goal “to do good deeds”. An opposite Reliable Item could be “The Devil’s Servant” with the Goal of “to do the Devil’s deeds”.
  4. This, as an active conflict, took place in some period of the past; it has a definite location on the Preclear’s Time-track. The beingness (RI), ‘God’s man’ with the Goal, ‘to do good deeds’ was at some point abandoned as the Thetan failed to live up to it over time due to the opposition and Engrams, Overts and Withholds accumulated that made it too painful to pursue. The Thetan’s next beingness (RI) could be “A just man” with the Goal “to reward good deeds”. This could be opposed by something like “to invite bad deeds” done by “The Devil’s tempter” and we have the thing going. As you can probably see from the example a Goal and beingness can be opposed in various ways. The obvious one would be “to punish good deeds”.
  5. This series of conflicts between two opposite Goals and beingnesses (RIs) would be the basic pattern of how the black masses called a GPM are formed. At some point anything that has to do with “deeds” (the End-word) will be abandoned and a completely new series of Goals is started, forming a new GPM.
  6. Actual GPMs in terms of aberrative power are much stronger than Locks, Secondaries and Engrams. An actual GPM gets built up over a vast period of time. Ten of thousands or millions of years and countless lifetimes. It’s the PCs whole-track history that stacks up this way. It’s like an actual GPM is similar to a big, solid mountain; Engrams and Secondaries are like the grass growing on the surface, and Locks are like smoke blowing over the grass just obscuring it.
  7. A GPM consists of pairs of items in opposition to each other. The GPMs exist in chains with the interfaces consisting of overlapping items. The “bottom” GPM is the first GPM furthest from the individual. All GPMs from the top to bottom are interlocked with each other. The problem is to plot all the GPMs precisely in the correct order. There is too much tension and you can’t afford to make a mistake. All the GPMs and their items must follow the rule of continuity, consistency and harmony. Resolving anomalies at this level leads to overarching gains.

GPM, IMPLANT

  1. An Implant GPM is a GPM made up of Goals (and their opposing Goals) which are not the Preclear’s own but which have been implanted. The Goals, in other words, did not come about as a self-determined decision and course of action but simply as an Implant. Such an implanted GPM would derive its real power from Actual GPMs.
  2. The power of Implanted GPMs over the Preclear are based on the mechanics of the actual pattern of living (Actual GPMs). They are implanted maliciously to entrap a Thetan and enforce obedience to certain behavior patterns.
  3. The Goals implanted are not individually based on the Thetan’s history but is a general pattern of Goals selected by the implanter to bring about maximum obedience and easy control of a whole group of individual subjects.

GRADE VI (R6EW)
In Grade VI we want to find pairs of opposite end words. These end words are always nouns. For example, if one wants to express how one feels in terms of end words, the dichotomy “elation” and “depression” might be found. Finding and running many pairs of end words releases a person from this subconsciously held conflict. (See REACTIVE MIND)

IMPLANT

  1. An Implant is an intentional action of overwhelming the Being (Thetan) with an idea, Goal or other significance. The overwhelm can be done by various means, including aesthetics and drugs. The most common method of overwhelm on the Time-track applies some kind of electronics or electro-chock.
  2. The Implant is a way to install a fixed idea in a Thetan’s mind by artificial means. It is done in an attempt to gain control over that Being’s behavior.
  3. An Implant is shocking someone with an electric shock and saying something at the same time. Also it could be making a loud noise and at the same time saying something, doing this on a patterned basis. 
  4. The action of implanting is, essentially, being made to believe in something without being allowed to actually examine or experience it. This could happen at the level of setting one’s goals. The solution to any implant is simply to examine it closely and handle any inconsistency in it. Dependence on E-meter to validate one’s assumptions may serve as self-implanting.

ITEM

  1. On CC and Pre-OT II it simply means a line from an Implant Platen.
  2. The term Item is used to refer to Terminals inside a GPM. There are two different kinds of Items: A) Terminals and, B) Opposition Terminals.

LINE PLOT

  1. Each GPM has Items, by definition. When these are mapped you have a Line Plot. The Line Plot shows the pattern of the Items inside the GPM–how they relate and interact. In some Implant GPMs the Line Plots are already known. The Preclear will be given a full map (the so-called Platens) and does not have to map the Line Plots himself. 
  2. A line plot provides the framework of purposes into which the 9 pairs of reliable items are fitted. Lines are drawn on a sheet of paper between terms and oppterms derived from each other. A line plot essentially plots the precise structure of the GPM as to how it was formed. The top and bottom items are joined so the plot of a GPM looks circular. Each full goal, like To Grab Books, would have a Line Plot with items like “Grabbing Books,” or just “Grabbed Books.”

OPPOSITION TERMINAL (OPP-TERMS)

  1. An identity (or Item) which the Pre-OT has in opposition to his own intentions. This is (was) in other words a hostile identity or someone in opposition to the Pre-OT. This was usually sometime in the past, but enemies/opponents (and masses in the OT-Bank connected to them) can of course exist in present time as well. We call them opposition terminals – or simply Opp-terms. The Pre-OT recognizes such a terminal as ‘I am not being that identity’. Therefore, it can’t produce pain; the Pre-OT can only experience sensation from it. 
  2. When such an Opp-Term (meaning the mental masses such a ‘not me’ beingness has left behind) is contacted in processing it produces only sensation, never pain. What is taking place inside these GPMs could be compared to an electrical circuit or current between a Plus Terminal and a Minus Terminal. We find these two types of Terminals within a GPM. That is just a matter of empirical experience. 
  3. The one type of Terminal (Term) is the part the Pre-OT thinks of as his/her own valence, himself or herself. The other type of Terminal the Pre-OT thinks of as being in opposition, Opp-Terms. Both the Terminal and the Opp-Terms in the GPM have mass and significance and have the appearance of receiving and giving communication; so they are both correctly labeled terminals.

OVERRUN
Overrun occurs when the natural processes of the mind are interfered with or bypassed.

PAIR
A set of two; two that go together. The Term and Opp-Term form a Pair.

PLATEN

  1. A platen is a card with holes in it that is put on another paper and has in it the line plot mostly written out.
  2. A Platen is a map that gives the content and sequence of one Implant. There are many Implants and many Platens that make up the Level. One line on a Platen is usually considered as one Item. It is used on the CC and Pre-OT II.

POSITIVE & NEGATIVE
Positive (plus) and negative (minus) are the considerations applied to the two ends of a dimensional scale. What is generally agreed to be the unwanted or poor side is minus. What is generally conceived to be all right is plus. Wealth is the plus and poverty is the minus. Elation is plus and depression is minus. (See DUALITY)

PROBLEM

  1. Anything that has opposing sides of equal force, especially postulate-counter-postulate, intention-counter-intention or idea-counter-idea.
  2. The ultimate problem is conflicting and opposing purposes or goals held in one’s subconscious. Underlying the persistence of a problem is fixed attention. Attention is fixed because one is unable to perceive the dimensions of that problem in their totality. (See FIXED ATTENTION)

PURPOSE
The basic purpose of the primary impulse is to evolve. As the being takes on simple or complex “mental forms” so does the purpose. The being and purpose are essentially one and the same. The purpose is the reason Being is there. (See BEING)

REACTIVE MIND
The core of the reactive mind is made up of conflicting and opposing purposes (or goals) held at a subconscious level. (See PROBLEM.) The structure of this core may look like this:

  1. To create beauty / To create ugliness
  2. To avoid ugliness / To avoid beauty
  3. To have success / To have failure
  4. To develop confidence / To develop shyness 

REHAB
A person needs to be guided when auditing the contents of his mind. Part of this guidance is to support the natural functions of the mind and not to  interfere with them. When the application of auditing has interfered too much with the natural unwinding of the mind to the point of reversing it, then the rehabilitation procedure is required. The mind is in the state it is because it has been interfered with too much already. 

RELIABLE ITEM
Reliable item is the actual beingness of the person in the past. There are 9 pairs of reliable items in every GPM, which are obtained through the process of listing and nulling. These items are terminals, opposition terminals,  combination terminals or significances. A reliable item has a lot of tension associated with it. It can be used to obtain further items. Reliable items should be discovered in pairs.

REPEATER TECHNIQUE
The basic technique used in auditing out known Implants. Generally speaking, the Solo-auditor will take up one Item at a time from the Platen. It can be a verbal Item or a non-verbal one. Each Item is addressed many times and will read on the Meter. Gradually the charge will get flattened (much like flattening a button when doing bull-baiting on TR-0). When a particular Item no longer produces any Meter reaction the Solo-auditor moves on to the next Item.

ROOT-WORD

  1. The root word relates to the impulses in the bank. Root words appear in all GPMs. They repeat down the whole bank. The same roots apply to each pair of end words. The same applies to items in the Line plot.
  2. The Root-word is the verb. It’s what we are going to do to the End-word. In the example under “end word” ‘books’ was the End-word. The verbs ‘grab’ ‘read’, ‘burn’, throw away’, etc. are Root-words. Each Goal in a GPM consist of a simple statement. All Goals in one GPM have the End-word in common. The Goals make up a complicated and conflicting pattern of forces due to the Root-words. You have to do dozens of conflicting things with these books to try to comply with the GPM.
  3. The Root-words are heavily repeated in the GPM structures of the Bank. Don’t chase them.  If you try to find them out of context of the whole pattern you may restimulate many End-words. This is because the same Root-words apply to many widely different Pairs of End-words. The Root-word “to grab” can be followed by all kinds of End-words: “to grab books”, “to grab clothes”, “to grab food”, and so on.  End-words apply to finite sections of the GPM Bank and are less prone to cause crisscross restimulation. Running End-words, on the contrary, causes a net blow of charge and is thus good processing resulting in erasures and EPs.  
  4. On OT II knowing all these rules and forces inside a GPM is not that crucial as the Pre-OT follows a mapped route, called a Line-Plot. The Line-plot of Pre-OT II gives a set of Goals and Items all Pre-OTs have in common.

R6 AUDITING
You have got some locks and then some closer locks and then you get an actual end word and then you could find the pair to that end word, and the first moment that you find the end word the pattern of the GPM starts to unsnarl. The pattern starts to emerge in sixes, and then he starts to see inconsistencies in the remaining patterns and cognites. Then you could work out your line plot and find out what it’s all about.

R6 BANK
This is the core of the mind made up of basic impulses of a person, which are expressed as goals. The bank has a very precise structure. At the core of the bank are GPMs. The impulses underlying the GPMs are natural. They assume fixed patterns when met with continued opposition. There is a lot of tension built into the GPMs that needs to be sorted out with precision. This all happens according to certain principles.

R6EW

  1. So when it is called Routine 6 End-Words it is because the End-words are what we are interested in and what we find and finding them and finding opposites give us a tremendous look at this whole core structure of the Reactive Mind and its GPMs and we are capable of accomplishing high level Key-outs.
  2. This is the first process of solo auditing. In starting R6, the solo auditor, regardless of the availability or the Line Plot, Root Plot and End Word (or Series) Plot, should find his or her own pairs of end words. Two pairs of end words properly found is equal to about one clear in terms of case gain. But the end words to be found must be the ones in restimulation on the particular case. R6EW simply consists of this: find an end word, preferably the one you are dramatizing, then find its pair. The main rule is always find the pair, don’t leave one. The idea is to find the complete pattern of the enforced areas of the bank.

Question: “What am I dramatizing?”  (Or “What word might I be dramatizing?”)—What noun (or a word function as noun) is being dramatized.

  1. Write down the broad areas where the attention is fixed, or where it gets easily dispersed.
  2. Note down how you react to those areas.
  3. Reduce that area and the characteristics of your reactions to a single NAME WORD.
  4. Do it very precisely. Keep on trying until you feel that you have it precisely.
  5. A suppress or challenge read serves to prove the end word. (Have I challenged Cats?)
  6. Note down the opposite of this end word. See if it proves out also.
  7. Now you should have a pair of end words that relates to you in a very intimate manner.
  8. The end word could be the name of some attribute, quality, desire, behavior, etc (abstract noun). 
  9. It could be singular or plural. It could be narrow or broad (in terms of dynamics).
  10. Find the first pair with certainty before your repeat this process.
  11. If you feel bad, recheck the end words already found, and find the right ones.
  12. Don’t stray into looking into roots or goals. Just focus on end words.

R6EW COMMANDS
Each command is independently run.

R6EW F1:

“What am I dramatizing?”
“What would oppose that?”

R6EW F2:

“What have I caused another to dramatize?”
“What would oppose that?”

R6EW F3:

“What are others dramatizing to others?”
“What would oppose that?”

R6EWS
There are six end words of the same breed. The main pair is in the middle, and the modified pairs are on either side. They form a gradient. When the gradient is missing, you are going to find the track bunched up, or where these two things  don’t belong together, and this is pulling the whole bank out of shape. Recognizing this leads to overarching gains.

SOLO AUDITING
Solo-auditing is different from self-auditing in that it uses Model Session form. Solo Auditing is exclusively an R6 activity. Solo auditing is a specialized activity and only for the provisional Class VI.

TERMINAL (TERM )
It is any fixed mass used in a communication system as an end-point or relay-point. It is any mass used in a fixed position in any communications system. Examples would be a person’s body – what you perceive as being him/her. But a post or hat in an organization would also be a terminal. It would be anything you would confidently send a communication to with the understanding that it would be received, duplicated or relayed.

TERMINAL (in GPMs)
An identity the Pre-OT has actually been at some point in the past (plus the Pre-OTs identity in p.t.). It is “the PC’s own valence” at that time. In the GPM, those identities which, when contacted, produce pain are the Terminals. The person could feel pain only as himself (Thetan plus body). Identities the Pre-OT has actually been produce pain when the mental black masses they left behind are contacted in processing.

WHOLE TRACK

  1. The Whole Track is the moment to moment record of a person’s existence in this universe in picture and impression form. Also called the Time-Track.
  2. The whole track is not so much going into the past on the first dynamic as it is widening of the viewpoint from the first dynamic toward the eighth dynamic.

CONDITION (Power Process 6)
Here one meditates on the “conditions” needing resolution.

  1. Tell me an existing condition.
  2. Tell me how you handled it.

“CONDITIONS” – A Scientology Power Process

CORRECTIVE PROCESSES

Power processes 1, 2, and 3 are corrective processes and are used when the PC is not running well on Power Process 4, 5, or 6.

Power Process 1: PROBLEM
This process is run when one runs into difficulty on “Source” process. The person is committing overts in an attempt to resolve some problem.

(a) What overt have you committed?
(b) What problem were you trying to solve?
(c) What haven’t you said?
(d) What problem were you trying to solve?

.

Power Process 2: FIXED SOLUTION
This process is run when the “Existence” process indicates that the pc is collapsed into his bank by former practices. The person is using some practice, opinion or belief as a fixed solution.

(a) Run to the first blowdown item:
“Give me some practices, opinions, or beliefs you have been connected to whether you left them or not.”
(b) Then take the blowdown item plus the two items up and two items down from it and assess those five item to one.
(c) Run on the item;

  1. What condition have you encountered in __________________________?
  2. How have you handled it?

.

Power Process 3: GRIEF
This process is run when the pc has been caused grief by auditing or the organization.

(a) What condition have you encountered in Scientology (or auditing or dianetics)?
(b) How have you handled it?

DEFINITIONS

ATTENTION
Attention is focusing of the mind. A person’s attention naturally goes to what needs to be resolved. When he can’t resolve it then the attention gets fixed on it at first in an increased effort to resolve it, but upon failing to do that the attention gets scattered all over the place from that point of failure.

GENERALITY
A generality may point out a general pattern, such as, through a mathematical equation. It still needs to be filled with specifics in order to reach a worthwhile conclusion in a situation.

DELUSION
A delusion occurs when one is not seeing things as they are. It could be there but not very obvious, or it could be very obvious.

The Logics

Reference: Subject: Logic

The Logics were written by L. Ron Hubbard from a summary of information which began in November of 1938 and were published in 1951. They have never varied since that time.

The Logics form a gradient scale of association of facts necessary to understand and resolve any problem. They can be used to predict behavior and clarify the entire field of thought. The Logics are a method of thinking and could be called ‘how to think.’ In fact, the basic common denominators of all education can be found in the Logics.

Vinaire’s Comment:

The basis of logic is the ONENESS of reality. In other words, logic is determined by the continuity, consistency and harmony of reality. Any discontinuity, inconsistency or disharmony is considered an anomaly and illogical. The process of logic involves postulating and making projections to resolve the anomalies. 

The purpose of the mind is to use logic to duplicate reality, and evolve it further. The conclusions of the mind must be continuous, consistent and harmonious with reality for its logic to be correct. The mind focuses on detecting or conceiving anomalies, so that it can resolve them to achieve its purpose.

In the following comments, the mind is visualized as a matrix of data that is energized by the impulse to evolve. These postulates about reality, logic and mind lead to some revisions in Hubbard’s logics.

.

SCIENTOLOGY LOGIC 1: Knowledge is a whole group or subdivision of a group of data or speculations or conclusions on data or methods of gaining data.

Knowledge is a representation of reality. Reality is continuous, consistent and harmonious. The knowledge attempts to duplicate that reality. Knowledge, being discrete, may be looked upon as a matrix of data elements. All data elements are related to each other. Where gaps exist in these relationships, they are filled by postulates, projections, assumptions and speculations. 

Reviewed Logic 1: Knowledge is a matrix of discrete data elements that attempts to duplicate and express continuous reality.

.

SCIENTOLOGY LOGIC 2: A body of knowledge is a body of data, aligned or unaligned, or methods of gaining data.

A body of knowledge, which is gained from experiencing reality, is a matrix of discrete data elements. Data elements that are aligned shall have no anomalies, but anomalies shall accompany unaligned data. An anomaly is defined as any violation of the integrity of reality, such as, discontinuity (missing data), inconsistency (contradictory data), or disharmony (arbitrary data).

Reviewed Logic 2: A body of knowledge is a matrix of data elements that have anomalies as it does not fully duplicate reality.

.

SCIENTOLOGY LOGIC 3: Any knowledge which can be sensed, measured or experienced by any entity is capable of influencing that entity.

COROLLARY: That knowledge which cannot be sensed, measured or experienced by any entity or type of entity cannot influence that entity or type of entity.

An entity that senses, measures and experiences reality is also part of that reality. It is essentially converting reality into knowledge. Reality, entity and knowledge are, therefore, part of the same system and influence each other.

Reviewed Logic 3: Any knowledge which can be sensed, measured or experienced by any entity is capable of influencing that entity and vice versa.

.

SCIENTOLOGY LOGIC 4: A datum is a symbol of matter, energy, space or time, or any combination thereof, in any universe, or the matter, energy, space or time itself, or any combination thereof, in any universe.

In an earlier version of this logic (PDC Tape 14), Hubbard says, “A datum is a facsimile of states of being, states of not being, actions or inactions, conclusions or suppositions in the physical or any other universe.” Hubbard also says, “[a datum is] anything of which one could become aware, whether the thing existed or whether he created it. (Scn 8-8008)”. The reality may be described in terms of matter, energy, space and time that are infused with an impulse to evolve. An entity is part of this reality and not separate from it.

More simply, a datum describes a portion of reality, which has physical and spiritual dimensions.

Reviewed Logic 4: A datum is a symbol of reality and consists of both physical and spiritual dimensions.

.

SCIENTOLOGY LOGIC 5: A definition of terms is necessary to the alignment, statement and resolution of suppositions, observations, problems and solutions and their communication.

DEFINITION: Descriptive definition: one which classifies by characteristics, by describing existing states of being.

DEFINITION: Differentiative definition: one which compares unlikeness to existing states of being or not-being.

DEFINITION: Associative definition: one which declares likeness to existing states of being or not-being.

DEFINITION: Action definition: one which delineates cause and potential change of state of being by cause of existence, inexistence, action, inaction, purpose or lack of purpose.

The definition can be descriptive, differentiative, associative or an action definition. A definition makes a data element definite, distinct or clear, so it can be related and aligned more readily with other elements of the data matrix.

Reviewed Logic 5: A definition makes a data element definite, distinct or clear, so it can be related and aligned more readily with other elements in the data matrix.

.

SCIENTOLOGY LOGIC 6: Absolutes are unobtainable. 

A matrix of discrete data elements, no matter how refined, can only be an approximation of the continuous reality. It can never be a perfect duplicate.

Reviewed Logic 6: Absolutes are unobtainable. 

.

SCIENTOLOGY LOGIC 7: Gradient scales are necessary to the evaluation of problems and their data. 

This is the tool of infinity-valued logic: Absolutes are unobtainable. Terms such as good and bad, alive and dead, right and wrong are used only in conjunction with gradient scales. On the scale of right and wrong, everything above zero or center would be more and more right, approaching an infinite rightness, and everything below center would be more and more wrong, approaching infinite wrongness. All things assisting the survival of the survivor are considered to be right for the survivor. All things inhibiting survival from the viewpoint of the survivor can be considered wrong for the survivor. The more a thing assists survival, the more it can be considered right for the survivor; the more a thing or action inhibits survival, the more it is wrong from the viewpoint of the intended survivor.

COROLLARY: Any datum has only relative truth.

COROLLARY: Truth is relative to environments, experience and truth.

A continuous reality can be represented only by a gradient of values like on a scale. A temperature scale provides degrees of hotness or coldness. Similarly, there can be a scale that provides degrees of rightness or wrongness. A gradient scale is an application of infinite-valued logic. A two-valued system, such as, “either good or bad” is deals with absolutes that are not possible. Gradient scales may be applied to terms like good and bad, alive and dead, healthy and sick, etc. Similarly, true and false can never be absolute. Any datum has only relative truth.

Reviewed Logic 7: Gradient scales are necessary to the evaluation of problems and their data. Any datum has only relative truth.

.

SCIENTOLOGY LOGIC 8: A datum can be evaluated only by a datum of comparable magnitude. 

A datum represents an element of reality. Any element of reality is a continuous part of a whole. Similarly, a datum is a connected node of a matrix. It doesn’t exist singularly on its own. It gets its meaning from its connections. For example, the Western concept of God gets its meaning with respect to all Creation. Similarly, the Eastern concept of Brahma (Universal viewpoint) gets its meaning from things being there to be viewed. The concepts of God and Brahma are of comparable magnitude.

Reviewed Logic 8: A datum can be evaluated only by a datum of comparable magnitude. 

.

SCIENTOLOGY LOGIC 9: A datum is as valuable as it has been evaluated.

A standalone datum has no value. It has value only when it is part of a gradient scale, or of a matrix because it is evaluated from its connections and comparisons. In the absence of actual evaluation a datum may be assigned any arbitrary value, but that would only generate an anomaly. 

Reviewed Logic 9: A datum is as valuable as it has been evaluated.

.

SCIENTOLOGY LOGIC 10: The value of a datum is established by the amount of alignment (relationship) it imparts to other data.

The more alignment a datum imparts to other data the more basic and valuable that datum is. The datum, “All reality is continuous, consistent and harmonious,” imparts a great amount of alignment to all other data. The greater is the alignment of data, the simpler it is to resolve any doubts and perplexities among surrounding data.

Reviewed Logic 10: The value of a datum is established by the amount of alignment (relationship) it imparts to other data.

.

SCIENTOLOGY LOGIC 11: The value of a datum or field of data can be established by its degree of assistance in survival or its inhibition to survival.

The complexities have increased greatly as the dynamics have evolved from the universe all the way down to the individual. With increased complexity, varied capabilities have come about. For example, at the level of the universe there is only a general impulse to evolve. Whereas, at the level of the individual we find intelligent use of logic. The universe Is evolving and so is data along with it.

Reviewed Logic 11: The value of a datum or field of data is established by the alignment it brings to the efforts toward greater evolution.

.

SCIENTOLOGY LOGIC 12: The value of a datum or a field of data is modified by the viewpoint of the observer.

The observer is the entity that senses or observes the reality and “translates” it into a datum of knowledge. Viewpoint is the window that the observer employs to observe. The broader is the viewpoint the better is the completeness of observation and translation of reality into knowledge.

Reviewed Logic 12: The value of a datum or a field of data is modified by the viewpoint of the observer.

.

SCIENTOLOGY LOGIC 13: Problems are resolved by compartmenting them into areas of similar magnitude and data, comparing them to data already known or partially known, and resolving each area. Data which cannot be known immediately may be resolved by addressing what is known and using its solution to resolve the remainder.

The purpose of logic is to resolve anomalies (discontinuities, inconsistencies and disharmonies). So we list the most obvious anomalies in a situation and locate the area where they abound. This narrows down the area of the situation. We then look more closely at this area and repeat the same cycle. In other words, we now list the anomalies in this area of the situation and locate the smaller region where they abound. A few repetitions of this cycle will narrow down the situation to the key anomaly, which, when resolved will also resolve other anomalies, and, maybe, the whole situation.

SCIENTOLOGY LOGIC 14: Factors introduced into a problem or solution which do not derive from natural law but only from authoritarian command aberrate that problem or solution.

The most basic of all natural laws is the continuity, consistency and harmony of reality. Other natural laws must comply with this basic requirement of reality. Any factor that does not derive from these natural laws, shall obviously generate anomalies when introduced into a problem or solution. Such factors are usually introduced by authoritarian command.

SCIENTOLOGY LOGIC 15: The introduction of an arbitrary into a problem or solution invites the further introduction of arbitraries into problems and solutions.

Introduction of an arbitrary would be postulating something totally new in a situation in the hope that it might lead to something. It is like coming up with a theory to explain something. When an arbitrary is introduced other changes are made to accommodate it. It it doesn’t work then the original arbitrary may not be suspected to be the problem.

SCIENTOLOGY LOGIC 16: An abstract postulate must be compared to the universe to which it applies and brought into the category of things which can be sensed, measured or experienced in that universe before such postulate can be considered workable.

When applying an abstract postulate to a situation, one should be able to generate patterns with it that can be sensed, measured, or experienced. Only then one should  employ that postulate. For example, ONENESS of reality is an abstract postulate. When applying it to a scientific theory, we must show that any experiments based on that theory provide actual results that are consistent with the predictions of that theory .

SCIENTOLOGY LOGIC 17: Those fields which most depend upon authoritative opinion for their data least contain known natural law.

People holding authoritative opinions do not care about natural laws or about the alignment of data to natural laws. They may even reject those statements, which actually align with natural laws, as in the case of Galileo. An area of knowledge that is replete with authoritative opinions is religion, and there we find most anomalies.

Reviewed Logic 17: Those fields which most depend upon authoritative opinion for their data can be found to abound in anomalies.

SCIENTOLOGY LOGIC 18: A postulate is as valuable as it is workable.

When exploring unknown areas one postulates and makes projections; and then verifies the conclusions for continuity, consistency and harmony. A postulate is something taken as self-evident or assumed without proof as a basis for reasoning. To be workable, a postulate must impart alignment to known data and be consistent with the natural laws of the universe. The postulate would then be found to be valuable in resolving anomalies.

SCIENTOLOGY LOGIC 19: The workability of a postulate is established by the degree to which it explains existing phenomena already known, by the degree that it predicts new phenomena which when looked for will be found to exist, and by the degree that it does not require that phenomena which do not exist in fact be called into existence for its explanation.

A workable postulate not only resolves anomalies related to existing phenomena, but it also predicts new phenomena which when looked for will be found to exist. It does not create require that phenomena which do not exist be called into existence. For example, the postulate, “Reality is ONE, and may be treated as continuous, consistent and harmonious,” has been found to be workable.

On the other hand, Hubbard’s postulate, “It is now considered that the origin of MEST lies with theta itself, and that MEST, as we know the physical universe, is a product of theta,” requires that Theta and MEST be considered as real things, whereas, they were originally dreamed up as categorizations of reality for convenience. This postulate is unworkable.

SCIENTOLOGY LOGIC 20: A science may be considered to be a large body of aligned data which has similarity in application and which has been deduced or induced from basic postulates.

Scientific theories are postulated to explain existing phenomenon and to predict new phenomenon. When that new phenomenon is discovered but found to be slightly different from prediction, it helps to update the theory. It may go as far as updating the original postulate. This happened when the Newton’s postulates were updated by Einstein’s theory of Relativity.

SCIENTOLOGY LOGIC 21: Mathematics are methods of postulating or resolving real or abstract data in any universe and integrating by symbolization of data, postulates and resolutions.

Mathematics is a type of logic that is mechanical in nature. It is based on certain postulates. It provides abstract patterns and matches them with the patterns in the universe to discover more fundamental patterns.

SCIENTOLOGY LOGIC 22: The human mind is an observer, postulator, creator and storage place of knowledge.

The human mind by definition includes the awareness unit of the living organism, the observer, the computer of data, the spirit, the memory storage, the life force and the individual motivator of the living organism. It is used as distinct from the brain which can be considered to be motivated by the mind.

The human mind is a matrix made up of perceptual elements that approximates the reality of the universe. The patterns in this matrix approximate the patterns in the universe. The complexity of these patterns resulting from infinite feedback loops generates the human awareness. Added complexity generates awareness of awareness and the sense of “I” or observer.

The infinite rapidity at which appropriate circuits activate at every moment makes the awareness very intimate and not mechanical. It is a very sophisticated expression of the primal impulse to evolve through the mechanism of the body. Thus, “I” has a structure much more sophisticated than any mathematics we know. From this comes ideas, such as, spirit, observer, postulator, creator, etc. The life force is the primary impulse to evolve.

The mental matrix is supported by the structure of the brain. The well assimilated and indexed data matrix then provides data storage,  memory and conclusions automatically.

SCIENTOLOGY LOGIC 23: The human mind is a servomechanism to any mathematics evolved or employed by the human mind.

POSTULATE: The human mind and inventions of the human mind are capable of resolving any and all problems which can be sensed, measured or experienced directly or indirectly.

COROLLARY: The human mind is capable of resolving the problem of the human mind. The borderline of solution of this science lies between why life is surviving and how life is surviving. It is possible to resolve how life is surviving without resolving why life is surviving.

A servomechanism is an automatic device for controlling large amounts of power by means of very small amounts of power and automatically correcting the performance of a mechanism. Hubbard calls the human mind a servomechanism. He postulates that the human mind is capable of resolving any and all problems of evolving, which include the problems of the human mind itself.

SCIENTOLOGY LOGIC 24: The resolution of the philosophical, scientific and human studies (such as economics, politics, sociology, medicine, criminology, etc.) depends primarily upon the resolution of the problems of the human mind.

The basic problem of the human mind is its inability to see things as they are, from which come all other problems. Only when these problems of the human mind are resolved can the problems resulting from the philosophical, scientific and human studies (such as economics, politics, sociology, medicine, criminology, etc.) be resolved fully.

Hubbard’s Note:

The primary step in resolving the broad activities of man could be considered to be the resolving of the activities of the mind itself. Hence, the Logics carry to this point and then proceed as axioms concerning the human mind, such axioms being substantiated as relative truths by much newly discovered phenomena. The ensuing axioms, from Logic 24, apply no less to the various “ologies” than they do to de-aberrating or improving the operation of the mind. It should not be thought that the following axioms are devoted to the construction of anything as limited as a therapy, which is only incidental to the resolution of human aberration and such things as psychosomatic illnesses. These axioms are capable of such solution, as has been demonstrated, but such a narrow application would indicate a very narrow scope of view.

Vinaire’s Comments:

The broad activities of man and the activities of the mind resolve in conjunction with each other. The data in these Logics is sufficient to start resolving the problems of the human mind through the process of Subject Clearing. The subsequent axioms are designed to bring about better understanding of the overall universal matrix and the mind, which may further accelerate the resolution of the human problems.
