Which way Man goes from this point is actually not the question. We do have the means by which Man could improve himself and his societies. We have them in Scientology in its application to education, because we can educate people today, perhaps for the first time. —L. Ron Hubbard
Throughout history, one subject actually did improve individuals. And that was education. But without the knowledge about the mind, spirit and life discovered in Scientology, education has not only lacked elements essential to success, its defects have crippled civilizations. And today, across the whole educational landscape, teachers contend daily with problems that, when addressed with Scientology technology, readily surrender.
Thus L. Ron Hubbard provides a comprehensive and very specific account of how to transform a failing educational zone into a scene of sparkling success, simply by applying Scientology basics. As he details example after example, what emerges is not only that Scientology can enormously advance education, but that education begins with Scientology. These applications extend far beyond the school and university, reaching wherever educators, professionals and governments teach and train.
Anchored by a technology of life itself, education can finally realize its full potential, providing individuals and cultures with an unshakable foundation for success and prosperity.
If the world around him is bad, then he is unwilling to grant life. If the world around him he conceives to be good, he is willing to grant life to it. A world with life granted to it runs well. A world with no life granted to it goes into chaos and disappears. Now, this is the riddle of the centuries. —L. Ron Hubbard
It has no mass or location. It is not energy. Yet it is alive. And it gives life.
Such are the characteristics of “a life-giving unit”—the source not only of all thought, but of all that is decent, ethical and noble. Indeed, this is you.
The discovery that each individual is, in fact, a source of life radically alters the relationship between Man and the material universe. Based not on faith or belief but on axioms as precise and workable as any in science, it has been conclusively determined that the life-giving unit preceded matter, energy, space and time. From that perspective, here are the infinite ways in which an individual endows his own environment with life. From physical well-being to the state of civilization, these principles are in continuous operation—every hour, every day. Understood and applied by a single individual, they lead to a far better life. Applied by everyone, they would lead to a far better world.
Immediately following the Anatomy of the Human Mind Congress in Washington, DC, L. Ron Hubbard flew to Johannesburg. There, he delivered the same Congress, but this time tailored specifically for South Africans. In this unique event, he demonstrates the Anatomy of the Human Mind Course to a capacity Congress—the largest ever—literally demonstrating the rock-solid simplicities of Scientology and how to teach them to others: the time track, start-change-stop, the cycle-of-action, valences, the nature of aberration and much more. While to better understand and interest new people, he additionally presented the Pre-havingness Scale—a chart spanning the entire gamut of the human race, and charting the levels to bring any being from the very bottom—Inverted Interest—to the very top—Interest. As a grand finale, he further laid out his embracive program to uplift every man, woman and child in South Africa. Entitled The Future of South Africa, here is Mr. Hubbard’s personal message to the country from which, he said, “will spring the next great civilization on this planet.”
From Southern Africa will spring the next great civilization on this planet, and it will succeed because Scientology and all its technology is on its side. —L. Ron Hubbard
Those historic words, written in the wake of the first and only Congress in the land, marked a period of intensive Scientology growth and development in South Africa.
The year was 1961. And between lectures, research, auditing and executive duties at the Johannesburg HASI, L. Ron Hubbard had come to know Southern Africa—from her Parliamentary Ministers and tribal chiefs, to the high-school students with whom he spoke in newly learned Zulu. While in light of what he saw across that troubled nation, he wrote:
“Our time has arrived.
“Politics has failed.
“On this planet only we and our technology stand between current threats and future destruction.”
To bring that technology to a continent, he convened the Anatomy Congress, on 21 January 1961. It was the largest Congress to date anywhere in the world, with more than five hundred South African Scientologists on hand to learn of Mr. Hubbard’s new breakthrough: the means to unmistakably communicate basics of Dianetics and Scientology to anyone.
Moreover, since time immemorial, the entire field of the mind and spirit had been immersed in mystery and complexity. As he explained, that was because the field had been relegated to philosophical “figure-figure”:
“What we have done that is spectacular is to make a complete breakthrough in the field of the human mind, taking the predictable, practical character of the physical sciences and moving them over into the humanities. And that is what has happened in Dianetics and Scientology.”
And therein lay the substance of what he presented as the Anatomy of the Human Mind Course. Mr. Hubbard laid out the “Things” of Dianetics and Scientology—as concrete and demonstrable as a test tube or measuring stick and existing independent of opinion. Hence, here was the means to present Scientology as a practical subject and as exact and accurate as the physical sciences. Then, too, he did not just show those things, but detailed how to conduct the course itself: the cycle-of-action, start-change-stop, the time track, havingness, present time problems, mental image pictures, confusion and the stable datum—all told, a list of twenty-four fundamental items that formed the basis of this new course.
And were that not enough, he unveiled yet another new auditing and dissemination tool—the Pre-Havingness Scale. Here was an expansion on the “Deadly Quartet”—the four factors necessary to get a preclear fully in session and winning (London Congress on Dissemination & Help).
All of which is to say, with the South African Anatomy Congress came the tools to begin that next great civilization on Earth and thus the substance behind these parting words from L. Ron Hubbard:
“Therefore, the program for South Africa which we espouse, and which I am beating the drum for, is simply: let’s make every man, woman and child in South Africa that we can lay our hands on as able as we possibly can, as fast as we can.”
Designated by L. Ron Hubbard as the Book One of Scientology. After having fully unified and codified the subjects of Dianetics and Scientology came the refinement of their fundamentals. Originally published as a résumé of Scientology for use in translations into non-English tongues, this book is of inestimable value to both the beginner and advanced student of the mind, spirit and life. Equipped with this book alone, one can begin a practice and perform seeming miracle changes in the states of well-being, ability and intelligence of people. Contained within are the Conditions of Existence, Eight Dynamics, ARC Triangle, Parts of Man, the full analysis of Life as a Game, and more, including exact processes for individual application of these principles in processing. Here, then, in one book, is the starting point for bringing Scientology to people everywhere.
For thousands of years Man has searched, pondered and speculated about the true “meaning of life.” But, in Scientology, that search has culminated—for the secret has now been discovered. Based on precision Axioms (self-evident truths), these are the answers—answers you’ve been looking for, answers that work.
Here, then, is the Basic Book on the Theory and Practice of Scientology, with discoveries embracing every aspect of life, including:
- The Cycle-of-Action, revealing what underlies the continuous cycle of creation, survival and destruction—a cycle that seems inevitable in life, but which is only an apparency
- The Conditions-of-Existence that comprise all life and livingness—and by which one can truly Be
- The Eight Dynamics upon which all life is compartmented and by which one can resolve the puzzle of their own existence
- The Affinity, Reality and Communication Triangle, revealing and explaining the underlying principles of true human relations
- The Parts of Man, the comprehensive explanation of Spirit, Mind and Body, their anatomy and interrelationship in every being
- The Reason Why, answering the questions of “what it’s all about” and giving the very elements of survival, happiness and life itself
- Scientology Processes that unlock the life force that is you
And, with this book, you won’t just “learn”—you’ll discover these principles for yourself. Because this is Scientology—the knowledge of you.
With CCH, L. Ron Hubbard had the means for auditors to crack even the “toughest” cases. Although the processes demanded the stamina and skill of an auditor at Tone 40—a level at which only Clears and OTs qualified—Mr. Hubbard had already released the solution at the Freedom Congress, where he demonstrated it by coaching Upper Indoctrination Training Drills (TRs). And in the 18th ACC, he then put these new techniques in the hands of auditors. Given that the essence of TRs is the ability to perceive, he set course with his classic statement on confronting—Scientology & Effective Knowledge. Then, ACC students literally pioneered the bedrock of future training. With TRs as a vital undercut to processes, Mr. Hubbard taught a battery of related discoveries: the definition and application of necessity level; the use of Informal Auditing, Formal Auditing and Tone 40 Auditing; the relationship of the Effect Scale to Tone Scale level and the long‑sought answers to one of Man’s oldest mysteries—death. Here, then, is the full technical application of the revolutionary breakthrough that not only changed Academies forever, but provided Man with his first workable technology on how to confront.
Willingness to do is the monitor of ability and is the only thing that monitors ability. —L. Ron Hubbard
With the breakthrough of Control, Communication and Havingness (CCH), L. Ron Hubbard had developed technology to a point where a truly well-trained and competent auditor could crack even the “toughest” of cases. Or, put another way, his continued research and undercuts to reach any and all preclears had so advanced auditing procedures that even the most resistive of Homo sapiens surrendered their aberrations and consented to go free. As he wrote in June 1957:
“We can accurately and predictably process a day-old baby, a person in a coma, a catatonic schiz, a no-reality case or a person in very good shape. Of course that’s news, but it also changes several things.”
As to what that meant in terms of broad scale clearing, Mr. Hubbard emphasized that better than 50 percent of those results depended upon the ability of the auditor. And that was most specifically true in the case of CCH, wherein the very power of the processes had brought a new challenge: it severely tested an auditor’s stamina and skills. In point of fact, he had discovered that the effectiveness of CCH depended to a very large degree on auditor state of case and tone level. Indeed, effectiveness of CCH required an auditor at Tone 40. Thus existed an apparently insurmountable obstacle: For when it came to Tone 40, one was only looking at Clears and Operating Thetans. And with a need for thousands of auditors—right now—to begin planetary clearing, time did not permit every auditor attaining Clear before running others on these processes.
Yet if that had been the state of affairs, L. Ron Hubbard had arrived at the solution and announced the breakthrough at the Freedom Congress, so named both because it opened on America’s Independence Day, 4 July 1957, and additionally marked the release of new technologies to free every being on Earth. And whereas that Congress had featured an instructive—and unforgettable—demonstration of training routines and Upper Indoc, Mr. Hubbard was about to put these new techniques to the test of full workability in the training of auditors at the 18th American Advanced Clinical Course.
Held in a beautiful four-story building at the corner of R and 19th Street NW in Washington, DC, the ACC opened on 8 July 1957. The course room hummed as more than 65 auditors from as far afield as South Africa and New Zealand—and all across the United States—awaited his appearance at the podium for the first lecture. Cutting straight to the point, he opened with what has become a Classic—his immortal “Scientology and Effective Knowledge,” in which he articulated a fundamental difference between the “gorgeous wonderland” of previous studies on the mind and spirit and everything Scientology represents:
“Most of our data is on the firm foundation of having looked.
“And your ability to know the subject is your ability to look! No more, no less than that.”
Then, in the same lecture, he set course for the next six weeks with his direction on the most helpful advice a coach can give the student:
“ ‘Do it!’ ‘Confront it!’ ”
While to further establish the standard for training auditors, there was his injunction that “the only error a Scientology Instructor can make is in the direction of softness.”
Thus the course of the 18th ACC. Yet those students may not have realized what they were in fact pioneering under Mr. Hubbard’s direction was the bedrock of future auditor training. For all that they learned and applied was to form the cornerstone of the Professional TRs known and used today by auditors from Sydney to Miami to Budapest.
To that end, he lectured and drilled those auditors on an array of related discoveries, breakthroughs and skills:
- Theory of Auditing—how auditor plus preclear are greater than the engramic content of the preclear’s bank;
- Necessity Level—the definition and detailed description, as well as its application to handling emergencies;
- The Anatomy of Sleep—the difference between sleep and anaten and a cure for sleeplessness;
- Auditing Styles—a description and use of Informal Auditing, Formal Auditing and Tone 40 Auditing;
- Effect Scale—the relationship of the Effect Scale to the various tone levels and the Havingness Scale, and the handling of someone stuck at “Have”;
- IQ—factors behind handling IQ and the use of testing;
- Groups—instruction on how to handle people and groups and help auditors in the field accomplish their local plans for expansion.
Yet for the final summation of what had been accomplished during that historic six weeks, here is Mr. Hubbard’s “The Saga of the 18th ACC” from the September 1957 issue of Ability:
“We have, as any student can tell you, finalized training patterns. We know today how to train as never before.
“The art of training is to preserve the will while communicating the subject. Today we can do just that—and even improve the will.
“As the old schools of psychology and psychiatry and the ministry die out and our new abilities move in, the world changes. Steadily and calmly we are taking over more and more territory that was once the ‘only one’ domain of the head shrinkers and brain embalmers.
“The reason we can do this is today’s splendid HCA and seasoned ACC graduate.”
And if it is true that auditor training would never be the same again, L. Ron Hubbard was already advancing into the next great phase of research, this time to move Scientology three feet behind society’s head with a monitoring datum that would henceforth guide all planetary clearing.
You could say, then, life would be livable at the speed a person had decided it was livable at. Got that? Life is livable at a safe speed or life is livable at an optimum randomity or life is livable so long as one’s randomity did not become less than or greater than what he thought was comfortable. —L. Ron Hubbard
What is an optimum speed? What is an optimum temperature? What is an optimum color?
The answers are anything but uniform from person to person. For every individual is playing a different game and their tolerances for randomity determine the games they play.
Here L. Ron Hubbard examines randomity from all corners and angles, detailing its anatomy and illustrating why people act in so many diverse ways. Even such everyday matters as choice of entertainment, judgment in regard to good taste, eating, drinking—in fact, virtually everything in life—are monitored by an individual’s considerations of an optimum randomity.
Man has long sought the reasons for the endlessly different manifestations of human behavior. Here, then, are the answers—discoveries about beings that are indispensable to auditors and vital to every Scientologist.
The “magic formula” of dissemination! With technology now capable of handling any case, the only remaining barrier was getting them into the session so it could be applied. And that’s the story of L. Ron Hubbard’s discovery of four buttons so powerful, he dubbed them the “Deadly Quartet.”
It all stemmed from his observation that before preclears could make gains, they had to be interested in their own cases. Yet what he found is that most people were below any interest—even in life itself. He tracked that down to basic and found the factor of Help was the major factor. Specifically, previous help had so often failed most felt it wasn’t even possible. That’s what led him to develop Presession Processes—so named since they were necessary before any session could even begin—to bring preclears up to the point where they knew help was possible, and were now interested in getting some!
Moreover, Mr. Hubbard discovered these same factors could be addressed outside the auditing room and, in fact, were the answer to dissemination itself. Indeed, they not only got anyone interested in Scientology, but—since they are a process—provided case gain even when used in dissemination. Here, then, are two lecture series in one. First, he delivered the London Open Evening Lectures, to both Scientologists and their friends—expanding on these factors and, in fact, demonstrating their use in dissemination! Next, to teach their application in both auditing and dissemination, he called together Scientologists for the London Congress on Dissemination & Help. Here, then, are L. Ron Hubbard’s public lectures on bringing Scientology to the world, and the means for you to do the same and so help get the rest of the planet in session.
About the only overt act that we could pull now in Scientology is fail to disseminate it properly.
Your responsibility cannot stop merely by knowing for yourself, simply because you are tied into a world which doesn’t know. —L. Ron Hubbard
It was the summer of 1960, and just one year since Mr. Hubbard’s establishment of Saint Hill as the central headquarters for all research and dissemination.
Technology had already advanced by monumental leaps. First with the means for wide scale clearing through co-auditing (Theta Clear Congress). Then with the breakthrough of responsibility and its technology of overts and withholds to advance any case and any dynamic (State of Man Congress). Moreover, with these breakthroughs now in application throughout the world, the Scientology population had doubled in just ten months.
Yet what he next discovered was about to signal unprecedented growth. For it was, in fact, the magic formula of dissemination.
It all stemmed from the fact that with existing technology now capable of moving any case straight to Clear, the only barrier was getting the preclear into session so the technology could be applied. But as Mr. Hubbard was soon announcing:
“Have you ever wondered how to persuade a stranger to get audited? Have you ever had to ‘sell’ a hostile family member Scientology before you could audit someone? Have you ever had trouble auditing anyone?
“Well, you’ll be pleased to know that these problems have been vanquished by some material I’ve developed.”
That development was something entirely new—Presession Processes—so named because they were used to get into session:
“Unless these four points are present in a session, it is improbable, in a great number of cases, that any real, lasting gain will be made.”
Those four factors were Help, Control, Communication and Interest—buttons so powerful he called them the “Deadly Quartet.” More to the point, since they were factors necessary for a session to take place, they were also the key to unlock dissemination. For as he discovered, the same factors that kept a being from interest in his own case likewise kept him from an interest in Scientology itself. And that’s why he was next releasing the technology broadly, for use by all Scientologists:
“The reason people in this age do not at once leap to your mention of a new, startling science is that these people are in the majority three steps below being capable of interest.”
And while L. Ron Hubbard then detailed step-by-step instructions for application of the Deadly Quartet in dissemination, quite literally “How to do it,” nothing could compare to what he next provided.
They were called the London Open Evening Lectures, for these were public lectures with everyone welcome, most particularly non-Scientologists. In attendance, then, were Scientologists, their friends and public who had never heard of the subject. And so it was, in the Empire Rooms on London’s Tottenham Court Road, that he lectured and demonstrated the use of these factors to revitalize anyone’s interest in life. Specifically, the factors of Presessioning weren’t only a means to get people “in session,” but could be used by themselves to revitalize life itself. And most particularly, the factor of Help:
“This is so fundamental that the reason life is life and people are together and grass grows and trees grow and apparently the rain falls and everything else, is because it helps somebody.”
Then, for Scientologists, Mr. Hubbard convened the London Congress on Dissemination & Help at London’s Royal Commonwealth Society Hall. Held on 7 August, it was here he presented the power of Presessioning in both auditing and dissemination. At which point the full magnitude of this technology in accomplishing that greater goal of a new civilization could be missed by no one:
“But completely aside from auditing, if you straightened out those points with every associate, or if you straightened out those points in every group, no matter what kind of a group (familial, business, military, it doesn’t matter what)—if you just straightened those things out, just those four, it’d operate practically like a cleared group, regardless of the state of beingness of the people who composed it, which is quite remarkable.”
Here, then, are two lecture series in one—both the technology itself and its full use in dissemination. It’s the technology that cuts right to the core of deep-rooted apathy, without which people of Earth might never take their first step to freedom. And that is why this Congress is the key to true planetary help.
I’m going to talk to you now about what aberration is. Aberration. Means exactly what it says. Aberration. It means something isn’t going straight. It’s basically an optical term, aberration, which drifted over into the field of the mind. —L. Ron Hubbard
It betrays the brightest hopes of individuals, drives families apart, incites organizational turmoil and pitches nations into chaos.
What malignant seed grows in the human mind that not only prevents individuals from “thinking straight,” but forces them to act out their irrationalities? Man’s failure over many millennia to find the cause of aberration has exacted an incalculable toll in personal unhappiness and ruined lives.
But were the answer found, the horizons would be unlimited. Individuals could achieve the lasting success they desire. Families would thrive, united and strong. Groups and organizations would reach new levels of prosperity. Nations would flourish, realizing they no longer need resolve their differences by violence and war. And even the brotherhood of Man might graduate from poetry to reality.
Here, then, with the isolation of the germ of destruction hidden for so long in the human mind, is the knowledge to actually reach those goals. Individuals, groups, nations and civilization itself can be freed from the bitter consequences of aberration. The answer lies in the discovery of the previously unknown mental image picture and, by virtue of all thus revealed, the prospect of a better world for all.
“We’re walking, right now, into a space‑opera age. And we are probably the only people that know anything about what Uncle Sammy and Uncle Khrushy face.” While Soviet leader Khrushchev rejoiced over the Russian satellite Sputnik and Russia’s newfound supremacy in the space race, L. Ron Hubbard convened a truly historic ACC. Following on the heels of “the most important Congress we have ever held”—the Ability Congress—the 19th American ACC opened with an account of whole track incidents implanted by space societies, the consequences for any preclear and the implications for civilization. An essential tool in the auditing solution was the E‑Meter, reintroduced due to electronic advances which made a new transistorized meter possible: the American Blue. Yet what made this ACC monumental was Clear Procedure, codification of all processes found most workable when applied by auditors. It consisted of an exact series of steps to obtain the state of Clear. And when those auditors created no less than fifteen Clears on the course itself, that was the crowning achievement—auditors other than Mr. Hubbard with the skill, know‑how and certainty to routinely clear others, laying the foundation for success in the only race that mattered—planetary clearing.
I believe we have attained the first major breakthrough Man has gotten in this universe for a very, very long while.
To confront the rather high do-nothingness but very wise state of the Asiatic holy man and to actually partake of this, and to look at it with something like horror that people could be so idle and know so much and do so little, and to turn around on the other hand and confront the brutality of engineering, was probably too great a disparity on both hands. And out of a state of shock and an inability to reconcile them, I did what has been done here—and we have accomplished the breakthrough. —L. Ron Hubbard
On 4 October 1957, an aluminum alloy sphere 23 inches in diameter and weighing 184 pounds left Earth at a speed of 5 miles per second and, exiting the atmosphere, curved into an orbit 560 miles above the planet’s surface. The Russian satellite Sputnik had entered history, and the Space Age had arrived.
However, among Western governments, to whom the launch came as a complete surprise, there was far more consternation than celebration. And when the Soviets followed a month later with a second and much larger satellite, communist ascendancy in this new era seemed confirmed—especially when a rushed American attempt to match the Soviet achievement ended with a Vanguard rocket exploding two seconds after takeoff on 6 December. Thus, American political leaders were jittery, facing what they believed could be serious military consequences from a failure to achieve dominance in space.
That, then, had been the backdrop of world events when L. Ron Hubbard convened what he described as “the most important Congress we have ever held” in the closing days of December 1957. Marked by a series of breakthrough announcements, the Ability Congress is where he released new data concerning the source of mental image pictures, the anatomy of Start, Change and Stop—and, of particular relevance given those world events—the means to Third Dynamic survival.
And hot on the tracks of the Ability Congress, with a detailed rundown on application for auditors, came the 19th American Advanced Clinical Course. Then again, if that Congress had been historic, it was to be an ACC equally memorable. For the auditors who had flown in to be on the ground for one of Mr. Hubbard's now legendary Advanced Clinical Courses were about to learn more than a few things about the “Space Age” that neither US President Eisenhower nor Soviet leader Khrushchev could even have conceived.
The date was 20 January 1958. The location—a fine ivy-covered building at the corner of R and 19th Street NW in Washington, DC. The atmosphere—charged with a sense of urgency and expectation that was soon to be more than fulfilled:
“It’s quite amusing for this much space opera to be turning up at this time. Actually, space opera is restimulated by science fiction. Or science fiction is restimulated by space opera. But we’re walking, right now, into a space-opera age. And we are probably the only people that know anything about what Uncle Sammy and Uncle Khrushy face.”
What followed was Mr. Hubbard’s riveting account of whole track incidents implanted in beings by space societies, the implications for this civilization and, specifically, the consequences in any preclear.
“You get some randomity such as I’ve just described to you in space opera and the fellow pulls a curtain. He just literally drops a mental image picture called a ‘curtain’ over it.
“Well, he generally picks it up from the backtrack and it generally comes out of space opera. And the amount of force, blast and duration and upset in one of these space-opera incidents would make anything that could happen to anybody at this stage on Earth look pretty pale. It would be something on the order of firing a guy with a catapult mechanism at a couple of hundred thousand miles an hour, or something like that, into a stone cliff, you see? You got lots of impact, you got this and that. So the amount of savageness which occurs in these incidents makes them very resistive. And so it has taken a very, very long time to solve this thing called fields and it’s quite a triumph today to be able to solve one.”
An essential tool in that solution was the reintroduction of something none of those auditors had foreseen—the E-Meter. Their use had been abandoned 3 years earlier when Mathison (the manufacturer) made them too complex for anybody but an engineer to operate while, at the same time, their needle reactions proved inadequate to the advanced processes L. Ron Hubbard had been developing for clearing. However, advances in electronics technology had now made possible a new type of transistorized meter—thus, the breakthrough of the famous American Blue Meter. Its use had already proven its effectiveness, cutting auditing time by two-thirds, and hence the E-Meter resumed its rightful place as an indispensable component to the successful accomplishment to Clear and Operating Thetan.
Yet notwithstanding his breakthroughs in whole track research and tools for auditor use, they all led up to and climaxed in a development which, in its application, would mark the 19th ACC as historic: Clear Procedure. A codification of all the processes Mr. Hubbard had found most workable when applied by auditors, it consisted of an exact series of steps to obtain the state of Clear. And its foundation stone was an element at the heart of all beings, for as he explained:
“Now, participation in the session is covered here in Clear Procedure and I want to point out to you that the kingpin, the main cogwheel, the center of participation is Help and this is cleared in CCH 0 and that’s the one that takes the stress.”
With participation established, auditors continued through the following stages of Clear Procedure toward the final goal of putting the preclear at Cause—for that was a Clear: A thetan who can knowingly be at cause over Life, Matter, Energy, Space and Time, subjective and objective. While to ensure their full grasp of every facet of clearing, Mr. Hubbard instructed them on its background, principles and mechanics:
- The History of Clearing—how the spiritual and the material are intertwined and why it takes both to carry on in life;
- The Four Universes—an auditor has to become familiar with, and be able to differentiate, the four universes: the thetan, the mind, the body and the material universe;
- Operating Thetan—its relationship to Clear and how an individual will arrive at Clear so long as one audits at the goal of improving an individual toward Operating Thetan;
- Importance of the Auditor—why an auditor is always senior to a Clear;
- Postulates—the first postulate a thetan has to make in order to become very, very aberrated is that there is something harmful about life;
- Clearing—it is an auditor who clears people, techniques do not clear anyone;
- Questions and Answers—Mr. Hubbard answered questions from students as to how to handle fields, proper TRs, session Q and A, metering and Mock-up Processing.
And from all he had taught came the culmination of everything he had worked for—indeed, his primary goal in auditor training since the first Foundation and Book One. For given the urgency of broad scale clearing, he had laid down a particular condition: he would give no personal coaching. Rather, the Instructors alone would be responsible for the supervision of the course and for ensuring that the students knew how to audit. Therefore, when no less than 15 of those 35 select ACC students achieved the glorious state of Clear on the course itself, with many others well advanced on that road, that marked the crowning achievement—auditors other than L. Ron Hubbard with the skill, know-how and certainty to clear others, to clear them routinely, and thereby to lay the foundations for planetary clearing.
And that, ultimately, was the only race that mattered. Thus, Operation Clear: to “Clear you, then Clear your environment, then Clear the country.” For as L. Ron Hubbard declared,
“You could say that we’ve been marking time as an organization waiting for this day. The day has arrived. We need mark time no longer. In the teeth of a worsening world, we’ve made it, no matter what happens on Earth.
“Quod erat demonstrandum.
“It can be done for you.”
To communicate to Man about Man or to tell Man that he is not so complex, that he is comprehensible, that he can exist, that he can be happy—to tell him these things—is today almost headline news! I have had fellows look at me and say, “You mean I might be able to understand myself?” —L. Ron Hubbard
With nothing more important than putting L. Ron Hubbard's Technology in the hands of every man, woman and child, the principles disclosed for the first time in this lecture are the central pivot on which expansion depends.
It all began with a startling discovery that yielded the specific know-how—for the formula is exact—to bring the truths of Scientology to every segment of society. When first implemented, that formula produced “magical” results, promptly generating an expansion boom, and it has continued to work its magic wherever applied. In a lecture that essentially sets the rules for a winning game all Scientologists can play, Mr. Hubbard herein tells the remarkable story of what he calls the number one Dianetics and Scientology program—Project Third Dynamic, a step-by-step procedure to disseminate “the simplicities of Scientology.”
Here, then, is the extraordinary breakthrough that provides the means for Scientologists to reach out to every individual on this planet with the priceless gift of freedom.
