Dictionary A B C D

A, affinity. (5904C08) AA, attempted abortion. (DMSMH, p. 245)

A=A=A1 . anything equals anything equals anything. This is the way the reactive mind thinks, irrationally identifying thoughts, people, objects, experiences, statements, etc., with one another where little or no similarity actually exists. (Scn AD) 2 . all differences are probably identities and all identities are different and all similarities are imaginary. We have a broad dissertation on this in Dianetics: the Modern Science of Mental Health as it affects insane behavior. Everything is everything else. Mr. X looks at a horse, knows it’s a house, knows it’s a school teacher, so when he sees a horse he is respectful. (HCO PL 26 Apr 70R) 3 . this is the behavior of the reactive mind. Everything is identified with everything on a certain subject. (PDC 20)

ABCD1. these are the steps designation of the second run through of R3R as given in the commands for R3R. Usually the auditor simply writes ABCD on his worksheet which shows he has given the command required and designated under A, under B, under C, under D, as and when he gives them to the preclear. (LRH Def. Notes) 2 . after the first time through an incident in Dn and when pc has recounted it, the auditor tells pc, A. “Move to the beginning of the incident.” B. “Tell me when you are there.” C. When pc has said he is, “Scan through to the end of the incident.” D. “Tell me what happened.” (BTB 6 May 69R II)

ABERRATE to make something diverge from a straight line. The word comes basically from optics . (Dn 55!, p . 65) —adj. Aberrated, departed from rationality, deranged. (EOS, p. 14)

ABERRATED BEHAVIOR destructive effort toward pro-survival data or entities on any dynamic or effort toward the survival of contra-survival data or entities for any dynamic. (Scn 0-8, p. 86) See ABERRATION. ABERRATED PERSONALITY, the personality resultant from superimposition, on the genetic personality of personal characteristics and tendencies brought about by all environmental factors, pro-survival and aberrational. (SOS Gloss)

ABERRATION1. a departure from rational thought or behavior. From the Latin, aberrare, to wander from; Latin, ab, away, errare, to wander. It means basically to err, to make mistakes, or more specifically to have fixed ideas which are not true. The word is also used in its scientific sense. It means departure from a straight line. If a line should go from A to B, then if it is “aberrated” it would go from A to some other point, to some other point, to some other point, to some other point, to some other point and finally arrive at B. Taken in its scientific sense, it would also mean the lack of straightness or to see crookedly as, in example, a man sees a horse but thinks he sees an elephant. Aberrated conduct would be wrong conduct, or conduct not supported by reason. When a person has engrams, these tend to deflect what would be his normal ability to perceive truth and bring about an aberrated view of situations which then would cause an aberrated reaction to them. Aberration is opposed to sanity, which would be its opposite. (LRH Def. Notes) 2 . an aberrated person wanders from his self- determined course. He no longer goes where he wants to go now, but goes where he has wanted to go in the past. His course is, therefore, not rational, and he seems to go wherever the environment pushes him. He has as many aberrations as he has hidden contrasurvival decisions in his past. (Abil 114A) 3 . mental derangement, any irrational condition. (DMSMH, p. 102) 4 . t h e aberree’s reactions to and difficulties with his current environment. (DTOT, p. 127) 5 . the manifestation of an engram, and is serious only when it influences the competence of the individual in his environment. (Scn Jour 28-G) 6 . the degree of residual plus or minus randomity accumulated by compelling, inhibiting or unwarranted assisting of efforts on the part of other organisms or the physical (material) universe. (Scn 0-8, p. 86)

ABERRATIVE VALENCE people from whom one felt that one could not withhold anything were the most aberrative valences on the case. We thus have a new definition for aberrative valences, namely the “cannot withhold from” valence. (PAB 128)

ABERREE1. a neologism meaning an aberrated person. (DMSMH, p. 22) 2 . a person not released or cleared. (DMSMH, p. 286) 3 . anybody who has one or more engrams. (EOS, p. 90) 4 . was sometimes used in the early days of Dn to designate an aberrated person. (LRH Def. Notes)

ABILITY, to observe, to make decisions, to act. (SH Spec 131, 6204C03)

ABILITY GAIN the pc’s recognition that pc can now do things he could not do before. (HCOB 28 Feb 59)

ABILITY RELEASE expanded Grade IV release. (CG&AC 75) See GRADE IV RELEASE. ABILITY TO THINK, the capability of the mind to perceive, pose and resolve specific and general problems. (DASF, p. 90)

ABRIDGED STYLE AUDITING, (Level III style), by abridged is meant “abbreviated,” shorn of extras. Any not actually needful auditing command is deleted. In this s t y l e we have shifted from pure rote to a sensible use or omission as needful. We still use repetitive commands expertly, but we don’t use rote that is unnecessary to the situation. (HCOB 6 Nov 64)

ABSOLUTE OVERT ACT an absolute overt act would be something destructive on all eight dynamics. (590C04)

ABSOLUTE RIGHTNESS the immortality of the individual himself, his children, his group, mankind and the universe and all energy—the infinity of complete survival. (DASF, p. 80)

ABSOLUTE WRONGNESS the extinction of the universe and all energy and the source of energy—the infinity of complete death. (DASF, p. 80)

ABSOLUTE ZERO1. something that does not have mass, doesn’t have wave- length, doesn’t have location and does not have time. (UPC 11) 2. absolute z e r o would be a no-motion, a no-temperature condition. (SH Spec 96, 6112C21)

ACCELERATION PROCESS this was an experimental rundown run in 1970- 1971 . It consisted of running down prior

ARC breaks preceding engrams; it was superseded by L-10 and Expanded Dianetics. Mentioned in HCOB 21 Dec 69, Solo Auditing and R6EW. (LRH Def. Notes)

ACCEPTABLE EFFECT one which is real. The person is certain that an effect of some kind or other has occurred. (5707C25)

ACCEPTANCE LEVEL1. the degree of a person’s actual willingness to accept people or things, monitored and determined by his consideration of the state or condition that those people or things must be in for him to be able to do so. (PXL Gloss) 2 . what he really could have. (XDN No. 4, 7204C07)

ACCEPTANCE LEVEL PROCESSING that process which discovers the lowest level of acceptance of the individual and discovers there the prevailing hunger and feeds that hunger by means of mock-ups until it is satiated. The process is not a separate process itself, but is actually a version of Expanded Gita. (PAB 15)

ACCESSIBILITY1. the willingness of the preclear to accept auditing and the ability of the auditor and the preclear to work as a team to increase the position of the preclear on the tone scale. (SOS, Bk. 2, p. 187) 2 . the accessibility of an individual has to do with his own ability to communicate with his environment and to communicate with his own past. (5011C22) 3 . generally, the desire of the individual to attain new and higher levels of survival and the betterment of mind and body. (SOS, Bk. 2, p. 185)

ACCIDENT-PRONE a case where the reactive mind commands accidents. He is a serious menace in any society for his accidents are reactively intentional and they include the destruction of other people who are innocent. (DMSMH, p. 153)

ACC TRs TRs which have been used on the 1st South African ACC and are a version of the E-meter drills. (HCOB 30 Apr 60)

ACK, acknowledgment(HCOB 23 Aug 65) ACK’ED, acknowledged. (BCR, p. 23)

ACKNOWLEDGEMENT something said or done to inform another that his statement or action has been noted, understood and received. “Very good,” “Okay,” and other such phrases are intended to inform another who has spoken or acted that his statement or action has been accepted. An acknowledgment also tends to confirm that the statement has been made or the action has been done and so brings about a condition not only of communication but of reality between two or more people. Applause at a theater is an acknowledgment of the actor or act plus approval. Acknowledgment itself does not necessarily imply an approval or disapproval or any other thing beyond the knowledge that an action or statement has been observed and is received. In signaling with the Morse code the receiver of a message transmits an R to the sender as a signal that the message has been received, which is to say acknowledged. There is such a thing as over- acknowledgment and there is such a thing as under-acknowledgment. A correct and exact acknowledgment communicates to someone who has spoken that what he has said has been heard. An acknowledgment tends to terminate or end the cycle of a communication, and when expertly used can sometimes stop a continued statement or continued action. An acknowledgment is also part of the communication formula and is one of its steps. The Scientologist, sometimes, in using Scientologese abbreviates this to “Ack”; he “acked” the person. (LRH Def. Notes)

ACT a stage of processing. Applies solely to the particular process in use at a certain case level. (AP&A Gloss) A C T I O N , 1 . a motion through space having a certain speed. (SH Spec 42, 6410C13) 2 . action=motion or movement=an act=a consideration that motion has occurred. (FOT, p. 19) 3 . doingness directed towards havingness. (Scn 8-8008, p. 26) 4 . a c t i o n consists of energy outputs and inputs. Action is energy interchanges on a gross mest level. (5203CM05A)

ACTION CYCLE the creation, growth, conservation, decay and death or destruction of energy and matter in a space. Action cycles produce time; an action cycle goes from 40.0 to 0.0 on the tone scale. (Scn 0-8, p. 25)


ACTION PHRASES1. words or phrases in engrams or locks (or at 0.1 in present time) which cause the individual to perform involuntary actions on the time track. Action phrases are effective in the low tone ranges and not effective in the high ranges. As a case progresses up the scale, they lose their power. Types of action phrases are bouncer, down bouncer, grouper, denier, holder, misdirector, scrambler, and the valence shifters corresponding to these. (SOS Gloss) 2 . those which seem to order the preclear in various directions. The action phrases are bouncers such as, “Get up,” “Get out”; holders such as “Stay here,” “Don’t move”; misdirectors such as “Don’t know whether I’m coming or going,” or “Everything is backwards”; downbouncers such as “Get under,” or “Go back”; groupers such as “Everything happens at once,” “Pull yourself together”; callbacks such as “Come back,” “Please come”; and one other, the denier, which states that the engram does not exist, such as “There isn’t anything here,” “I can’t see anything.” There is also the valence shifter which shifts the individual from his own identity to the identity of another; the valence- bouncer, which prohibits an individual from going into some particular valence; the valence denier, which may even deny that the person’s own valence exists; and the valence-grouper, which makes all valences into one valence. These are all the types of action phrases. (SOS, pp. 181-182)

ACTUAL that which is really true; that which exists despite all apparencies; that which underlies the way things seem to be; the way things really are. (FOT, p. 20)

ACTUAL CYCLE OF ACTION, CREATE, create-create-create, create-counter- create, no creation, nothingness . CREATE = make, manufacture, construct, postulate, bring into beingness= CREATE. Create-create-create=create again continuously one moment after the next=SURVIVAL. Create-counter-create=to create something against a creation=to create one thing and then create something else against it=DESTROY. No creation =an absence of any creation=no creative activity. An ACTUAL cycle of action then consists of various activities, but each and every one of them is creative. The c y c l e o f a c t i o n contains an APPARENCY of SURVIVAL, but this is actually only a continuous creation. (FOT, pp. 20-21)

ACTUAL GOAL the dominating significance of the thetan’s own causation which binds together the masses accumulated by the reliable items of an actual GPM. (HCOB 13 Apr 64, Scn VI Part One Glossary of Terms)

ACTUAL GPM, the composite black mass of all the pairs of reliable items and their associated locks, dominated and bound together by the significance of an actual goal and having a definite location as a mass on the time track. (HCOB 13 Apr 64, Scn VIP art One Glossary of Terms)

ACTUALITY, (Scientology Axiom 27), an actuality can exist for one individually, but when it is agreed with by others it can then be said to be a reality. (PXL, p. 175) 2. one’s attitude towards his own universe. (Scn 8-8008, p. 28) ACUTE, immediate, right now. It doesn’t mean exaggerated. Medically it means simply right now, and rather temporary. (SH Spec 31, 6401C28)

ACUTE INSANITY, one which flares into existence for a few moments or a few days and then subsides, leaving a relatively normal person. (DASF, p. 77) AD or A.D., after Dianetics (1950) e.g. 1965=AD 15. (HCOB 23 Aug 65)

ADAPTIVE POSTULATE, a pre-Dianetic error that an individual was healthy so long as he was adjusted to his environment. Nothing could be less workable than this “adaptive” postulate. Man succeeds because he adjusts his environment to him, not by adjusting himself to the environment. (SA, p. 112)


ADDITIVE, a thing which has been added. This usually has a
bad meaning in that an additive is said to be something needless or harmful which has been done in addition to standard procedure. Additive normally means a departure from standard procedure. For example, an auditor puts different or additional words into a standard process or command. It means a twist on standard procedure. In common English, it might mean a substance put into a compound to improve its qualities or suppress undesirable qualities. In Dn and Scn it definitely means to add something to the technology procedure resulting in undesirable results. (LRH Def. Notes)

ADMIN, administration or administrator. (HCOB 23 Aug 65) ADMINISTRATION (ADMIN), a contraction or shortening of the word administration, admin is used as a noun to denote the actions involved in administering an organization. The clerical and executive decisions, actions and duties necessary to the running of an organization, such as originating and answering mail, typing, filing, dispatching, applying policy and all those actions, large and small which make up an organization. Admin is also used to denote the action or fact of keeping auditor’s reports, summary reports, worksheets and other records related to an auditing session. “He kept good admin,” meaning that his summary report, auditor’s report and worksheets were neat, exactly on pattern, in proper sequence and easily understood as well as complete. “His admin was bad”; from the scribble and disorderly keeping of records of the session while it was in progress one could not make out what had happened in the session. You will also see the word admin in connection with the three musts of a well-run organization. It is said that its ethics, tech and admin must be “in,” which mean they must be properly done, orderly and effective. The word derives from minister, which means to serve. Administer means to manage, govern, to apply or direct the application of laws, or discipline, to conduct or execute religious offices, dispense rights. It comes from the Latin, administrare, to manage, carry out, accomplish, to attend, wait, serve. In modern English, when they use administration they mean management or running a government or the group that is in charge of the organization or the state. (LRH Def. Notes) ADMIN TRs, the purpose of these TRs is to train the student to get compliance with and complete a cycle of action on administrative actions and orders, in spite of the randomities, confusions, justifications, excuses, traps and insanities of the third and sixth dynamics, and to confront such comfortably while doing so. (BTB 7 Feb 71)

ADMIRATION, 1. is the very substance of a communication line, and it is that thing which is considered desirable in the game of the three universes. (COHA, p. 203) 2 . a particle which unites and resolves, like the universal solvent, all types of energy, particularly force. (PAB 8)

ADVANCED CLINICAL COURSE, 1. basically a theory and research course which gives a much further insight into the phenomena of the mind and the rationale of research and investigation. (PAB 71) 2 . L. Ron Hubbard’s special courses personally taught by him, scheduled by him, and sponsored for him by an HCO office. (HCO PL 24 Feb 60) Abbr.

ACC. ADVANCED COURSES, 1. Solo Audit Course, Clearing Course or OT courses. (HCO PL 12 Aug 71 II) 2 . above VA processes, one enters the field of advanced courses, specifically dealing with materials of which one has to solo audit in order to attain the stable gains of the grade. (HCO PL 28 Mar 70) Abbr. Ad Crses.

ADVANCED ORGANIZATION, 1. the advanced courses were at first separate in the Office of LRH at Saint Hill and then became the Advanced Orgs (AOs) under the Sea Org. (HCOB 8 Oct 71 II) 2. that organization which runs the advanced courses. Its products are Clears and OTs. (FO 508)

ADVANCE PROGRAM, 1. the major actions to be undertaken to get the case back on the class chart from wherever he had erroneously gotten to on it. The advance program consists of writing down in sequence every needful step and process missed on the class chart by the case which is now to be done. It gets the preclear or pre-OT up to where he should be. (HCOB 14 Jun 70) 2 . this is what was called a “return program” in the C/S Series. The name was changed from “return” to “advance” as more appropriate. (HCOB 25 Jun 70 II) A.E.S.P., attitudes, emotions, sensations, pains. (BTB 8 Jan 71R)

AESTHETIC MIND, that mind which, by an interplay of the dynamics, deals with the nebulous field of art and creation. (SOS, Bk. 2, p. 234)

AESTHETIC PRODUCT, Dn Axiom 169: any aesthetic product is a symbolic facsimile or combination of facsimiles of theta or physical universes in varied randomities and volumes of randomities with the interplay of tones. (AP&A, p. 99)

AESTHETICS, the study of ideal form and beauty—it is the philosophy of art, which itself is the quality of communication. (B&C, p. 15)

AFFINITY, 1. the feeling of love or liking for something or someone. Affinity is a phenomena of space in that it expresses the willingness to occupy the same place as the thing which is loved or liked. The reverse of it would be antipathy, “dislike” or rejection which would be the unwillingness to occupy the same space as or the unwillingness to approach something or someone. It came from the French, affinite, affinity, kindred, alliance, nearness and also from the Latin, affinis, meaning near, bordering upon. (LRH Def. Notes) 2 . the ability to occupy the space of, or be like or similar to, or to express a willingness to be something. (SH Spec 83, 6612C06) 3 . the relative distance and similarity of the two ends of a communication line. (Dn 55!, p. 35) 4 . emotional response; the feeling of affection or the lack of it, of emotion or misemotion connected with life. (HCOB 21 Jun 71 I) 5 . the attraction which exists between two human beings or between a human being and another life organism or between a human being and mest or theta or the Supreme Being. It has a rough parallel in the physical universe in magnetic and gravitic attraction. The affinity or lack of affinity between an organism and the environment or between the theta and mest of an organism and within the theta (including entheta) of the organism brings about what we have referred to as emotions. (SOS Gloss) 6 . in its truest definition which is coincidence of location and beingness, that is the ultimate in affinity. (9ACC- 10, 5412CM20) AFFINITY SCALE, 1 . a scale which refers to the individual’s relation with other people. The affinity scale may refer, at any particular time, to just one or to a small number of people. But as affinity is suppressed repeatedly, the individual will begin to take on an habitual tone level, on the affinity scale, an habitual reaction to almost all people. (NOTL, p. 102) 2 . the affinity scale includes most of the common emotions, apathy, grief, fear, anger, hostility, boredom, relief, contentment, enthusiasm, exhilaration, inspiration. (SOS Gloss)

AGAINST SCIENTOLOGY, a t t e n t i o n o f f S c i e n t o l o g y and protesting Scientology behavior. (HCOB 19 Aug 63)

AGAINST SESSION, attention off own case and talking at the auditor in protest of auditor, PT auditing environment or Scn. (HCOB 19 Aug 63) See also OUT OF SESSION.

AGE FLASH, the auditor says, “When I snap my fingers an age will occur to you. Give me the first number that comes into your mind.” He then snaps his fingers, and the preclear gives him the first number which comes into his head. (SOS, Bk. 2, p. 51)

AGONY , is the deep emotion of boredom. Boredom, in essence, is the warning signal that agony is on its way. (5312CM20)

AGREEMENT, 1. a mutual knowingness, a mutual postulatingness towards certain end products. (SH Spec 71, 6110C25) 2 . two or more people making the same postulates stick. (SH Spec 62, 6110C04) 3 . ability to co-act with or mimic or be mimicked by. (5303M24) 4. a specialized consideration, it is shared in common, and this we call an agreement. (5702C26) AHMC, Anatomy of the Human Mind Course. (CG&AC 75) AICL, Advanced Indoctrination Course Lectures. (HCOB 29 Sept 66)

ALL THE WAY SOUTH, Slang. that state of mind at the extreme bottom where the fellow must have total effect on self and could not possibly make any effect of any kind on anybody else. It’s below death. (5707C25) ALLY, 1 . this is a noun which means an individual who cooperates with, supports and helps another for a common object; a supporter, a friend. In Dn and Scn, it basically means someone who protects a person who is in a weak state and becomes a very strong influence over the person. The weaker person, such as a child, even partakes the characteristics of the a l l y so that one may find that a person who has, for instance, a bad leg, has it because a protector or ally in his youth had a bad leg. The word is from French and Latin and means to bind together. (LRH Def. Notes) 2 . by ally in Scn, we mean a person from whom sympathy came when the preclear was ill or injured. If the ally came to the preclear’s defense or his words and/or actions were aligned with the individual’s survival, the reactive mind gives that a l l y the status of always being right— especially if this ally was obtained during a highly painful engram. (HCOB 20 Mar 70)

ALLY COMPUTATION, little more than a mere idiot calculation that anyone who is a friend can be kept a friend only by approximating the conditions wherein the friendship was realized. It is a computation on the basis that one can only be safe in the vicinity of certain people and that one can only be in the vicinity of certain people by being sick or crazy or poor and generally disabled. (DMSMH, p. 243) ALTER-IS, 1 . a composite word meaning the action of altering or changing the reality of something. Is-ness means the way it is. When someone sees it differently he is doing an alter-is; in other words, is altering the way it is. This is taken from the Axioms. (LRH Def. Notes) 2 . to introduce a change and therefore time and persistence in an as-is-ness to obtain persistence. An introduction of an alter-is is therefore the addition of a lie to the real which causes it to persist and not to blow or as-is. (HCOB 11 May 65)

ALTER-IS-NESS, 1. the consideration which introduces change, and therefore time and persistence into an as-is-ness to obtain persistence. (PXL, p. 154) 2 . the effort to preserve something by altering its characteristics. (PXL, p. 53)

ALTER-IST, the control case, the person obsessively controlling things, and himself, is an alter-ist. He’s got to change, change. Well, he’s lost too much. Now he’s got to change everything but he’s not satisfied with anything. (PXL, p. 54)

ALTERNATE, 1 . occurring by turns; succeeding each other; one and then the other. (HCOB 10 May 65) 2 . in auditing, alternate means two questions run one after the other, consecutively, one command positive followed by one negative. (HCOB 4 Dec 59)

ALTERNATE CONFRONT, (PROCESS), “What can you confront?””What would you rather not confront?” (HCOB 16 Jun 60) ALTITUDE, 1. a prestige which the auditor has in the eyes of the preclear. A somewhat artificial position of the auditor which gives the preclear greater confidence and therefore greater ability to run than he would otherwise have. (SOS Gloss) 2 . a difference of level of prestige—one in a higher altitude carries conviction to one on a lower altitude merely because of altitude. (D M S M H, p. 343)

AMNESIA, a guy who is so spooked that he doesn’t dare remember ten seconds ago. He has had some experience earlier than which he is not going to remember, including the experience, so he’s only willing to remember some moment after that experience. (SH Spec 72, 6607C28)

ANALYTICAL, capable of resolving, such as problems, situations. The word analytical is from the Greek analysis meaning resolve, undo, loosen, which is to say take something to pieces to see what it is made of. This is one of those examples of the shortcomings of the English language since no dictionary gives the word analytical any connection with thinking, reasoning, perceiving, which in essence is what it would have to mean, even in English. (LRH Def. Notes)

ANALYTICAL ATTENUATION, see ANATEN. ANALYTICAL MIND, 1 . the conscious aware mind which thinks, observes data, remembers it, and resolves problems. It would be essentially the conscious mind as opposed to the unconscious mind. In Dn and Scn the analytical mind is the one which is alert and aware and the reactive mind simply reacts without analysis. (LRH Def. Notes) 2 . that mind which combines perceptions of the immediate environment, of the past (via pictures) and estimations of the future into conclusions which are based upon the realities of situations. The analytical mind combines the potential knowingness of the thetan with the conditions of his surroundings and brings him to independent conclusions. This mind could be said to consist of visual pictures either of the past or the physical universe, monitored by, and presided over, by the knowingness of a thetan. The keynote of the analytical mind is awareness, one knows what one is concluding and knows what he is doing. (FOT, pp. 57-58) 3 . the awareness of awareness unit plus some evaluative circuit or circuits, or machinery to make the handling of the body possible. (Dn 55!, pp. 11-12) 4 . that part of the being which perceives, when the individual is awake or in normal sleep (for sleep is not unconsciousness, and anything the individual has perceived while he was asleep is recorded in the standard memory banks and is relatively easy for the auditor to recover). (SOS, Bk. 2, p. 230) 5. we say the analytical mind is kind of a misnomer because most people think it’s some kind of computing machine, and it’s not, it’s just the pc, the thetan. (SH Spec 23, 6106C29)

ANALYTICAL THOUGHT, 1. thought which directly observes and analyzes what it observes in terms of observations which are immediately present. (COHA, p. 196) 2 . rational thought as modified by education and viewpoint. (DMSMH, p. 79)

ANALYZER, the analytical mind. (DMSMH, p. 44)

ANATEN, 1 . an abbreviation of analytical attenuation meaning diminution or weakening of the analytical awareness of an individual for a brief or extensive period of time. If sufficiently great, it can result in unconsciousness. (It stems from the re-stimulation of an engram which contains pain and unconsciousness.) (Scn AD) 2 . simply a drop in ARC to an extreme. (PAB 70) 3 . the physiological by-product of unconsciousness. (SOS, Bk. 2, p. 170) 4. dope-off. (Abil 52)

ANATOMY OF THE HUMAN MIND COURSE, a basic Scn course which teaches observation and understanding of the fundamentals of the human mind. It includes demonstrations of the parts of the human mind. There are no prerequisites for this course. (CG&AC 75) Abbr. AHMC.

ANCHOR POINTS, 1 . assigned or agreed-upon points of boundary, which are conceived to be motionless by the individual. (PDC 13) 2 . points which are anchored in a space different to the physical universe space around a body. (FOT, p. 63) 3 . those places which we called in Advanced Procedures and Axioms the sub-brains of the body; control centers, epicenters. (5410ClOD) 4 . the points which mark an area of space are called anchor points, and these, with the viewpoint, alone are responsible for space. (Scn Jour, Iss 14-G) 5 . a specialized kind of dimension point. (Scn 8-8008, p. 16) 6 . any kind of a point, any kind of a particle, any kind of electron, or anything which anybody believes is an actual p o i n t . There is nothing more real than a real anchor point. (2ACC-lA 5311CM17) ANGER, 1. true anger is a hate hold. At exactly 1 .5 on the tone scale we have a total ridge. It’s hate. When we move a little above or a little below 1 .5 we get a dispersal. (5904C08) 2 . anger is simply the process of trying to hold everything still. (5203CM09A)

ANSWER HUNGER, an unfinished cycle of communication generates what might be called answer hunger. An individual who is waiting for a signal that his communication has been received is prone to accept any inflow. When an individual has, for a very long period of time, consistently waited for answers which did not arrive, any sort of answer from anywhere will be pulled in to him, by him, as an effort to remedy his scarcity of answers. (Dn 55!, p. 66)

ANTAGONISM, at the level of tone 2.0, affinity is expressed as antagonism, a feeling of annoyance and irritation caused by the advances of other people toward the individual. (SOS, p. 56)

A N T I Q A N D A T R , 1 . commands: basically “Put that (object) on my knee.” Student is to get the coach to place the object that he has in his hand on the knee of the student. Purpose: (a) to train student in getting a pc to carry out a command using formal communication NOT tone 40. (b) to enable the student to maintain his TRs while giving commands. (c) to train the student to not get upset with a pc under formal auditing. (HCOB 20 Nov 73 I) 2 . to get this disease (Q&A) out of an HGC requires that auditors go through an anti Q and A handling. (HCOB 20 Nov 73 II)

ANTISOCIAL PERSONALITY, 1. there are certain characteristics and mental attitudes which cause about 20 per cent of a race to oppose violently any betterment activity or group. Such people are known to have antisocial tendencies. (ISE, p. 9) 2 . we’re calling it a suppressive because it’s more explicit. (SH Spec 78, 6608C25) See also SUPPRESSIVE PERSON.

ANXIETY, constant irresolute computation. Constant computation on a certain point or a certain problem. That is what worry is and that is what anxiety is. (T-80-2A 5205C20) AO, Advanced Org. (HCOB 8 Oct 71 II) A P , aberrated personality. (DMSMH, p. 124) APA, American Personality Analysis, the personality test. (BTB 3 Nov 72R) See OCA. APATHY, 1. complete withdrawal from person or people. There is in apathy no real attempt to contact one’s self and no attempt to contact others. Here we have a null point of dissonance which is on the threshold of death. (SOS, p. 57) 2 . a very docile and obedient, if sick, state of not-beingness. (HFP, p. 56) 3 . no effort, all counter-effort. (AP&A, p. 33) 4 . apathy actually is a motionless enturbulence. It’s an enturbulence canceling itself out to the degree that it appears to be motionless. (5206CM25A) 5 . a p a t h y , near death, imitates death. If a person is almost all wrong, he approximates death. He says, “What’s the use? All is lost.” (NOTL, p. 20)

APPARENCY, 1 . noun, something that seems to be, that appears to be a certain way; something appears to be but is different from the way it looks. It is from the Latin, apparere, to appear. In Dianetics and Scientology it is used to mean something that looks one way but is, in actual fact, something else. “Gives an apparency of health” whereas it’s actually sick. (LRH Def. Notes) 2 . what appears to be as distinct from what actually is. (FOT, p. 19)

APPARENT CYCLE OF ACTION, create, then survive, then destroy; or creation, survival, destruction. (FOT, p. 18)

APPETITE OVER TIN CUP, Slang. a pioneer Western U.S. term used by riverboat men on the Missouri; it means thrown away violently, like “head over heels,” “bowled over.” (LRH Def. Notes)

APPLIED PHILOSOPHY, one which has to do with doing and action. One which applies to living—not just a theory, but one where the theory can be used to help you get on better in life. (BTB 4 Mar 65R)

APPRENTICE SCIENTOLOGIST, one who knows how to know, how to study, what life is about. (BCR, p. 14) ARBITRARY, 1 . something which is introduced into the situation without regard to the data of the situation. (SH Spec 83, 6612C06) 2 . an order or command introduced into the group in an effort to lay aside certain harm which may befall the group or in an effort to get through a period, fancied or real, of foreshortened time. (NOTL, p. 136) 3 . an order or command which was issued without explanation, and demanded instantaneous action on the part of other members of the group. (NOTL, p. 131)

ARC, Anti-Radiation Congress. (HCOB 29 Sept 66) ARC, 1 . a word from the initial letters of Afflnity, Reality, Communication which together equate to Understanding. It is pronounced by stating its letters,

A-R-C. To Scientologists it has come to mean good feeling, love or friendliness, such as “He was in ARC with his friend.” One does not, however, fall out of ARC, he has an ARC break. (LRH Def. Notes) 2 . ARC=Understanding and Time. A=Space and the willingness to occupy the same space of. R=Mass or agreement. C=Energy or Recognition. (HCOB 27 Sept 68 II) 3 . affinity is a type of energy and can be produced at will. Reality is agreement; too much agreement under duress brings about the banishment of one’s entire consciousness. Communication, however, is far more important than affinity or reality, for it is the operation, the action by which one experiences emotion and by which one agrees. (PAB 1) 4 . the triagonal manifestation of theta each aspect affecting the other two. (SOS Gloss)

A R C B R E A K , 1 . a sudden drop or cutting of one’s affinity, reality, or communication with someone or something. Upsets with people or things come about because of a lessening or sundering of affinity, reality, or communication or understanding. It’s called an ARC break instead of an upset, because, if one discovers which of the three points of understanding have been cut, one can bring about a rapid recovery in the person’s state of mind. It is pronounced by its letters A-R-C break. When an ARC break is permitted to continue over too long a period of time and remains in re-stimulation, a person goes into a “sad effect” which is to say they become sad and mournful, usually without knowing what is causing it. This condition is handled by finding the earliest ARC break on the chain, finding whether it was a break in affinity, reality, communication, or understanding and indicating it to the person, always, of course, in session. (LRH Def. Notes) 2 . an incomplete cycle of some kind or another. It’s a lowering of Affinity, Reality and Communication, so we call it an ARC break. It’s a sudden down curve. It’s a highly technical term. It means exactly what it says but its incept and so forth is an incomplete cycle of action. (SH Spec 65, 6507C27) Abbr. ARCX.

ARC BREAK ASSESSMENT, 1 . reading an ARC break list appropriate to the activity to the pc on a meter and doing nothing but locating and then indicating the charges found by telling the pc what registered on the needle. (HCOB 7 Sept 64 II) 2. it isn’t auditing because it doesn’t use the auditing comm cycle. You don’t ack what the pc says, you don’t ask the pc what it is. You don’t comm. You assess the list between you and the meter, same as no pc there. Then you find what reads and you tell the pc. And that’s all. (HCOB 7 Sept 64 II)

ARC BREAK LONG DURATION, spotted by a person who has led a sad or subdued or rather suppressed sort of life and is probably around .8 on down on the tone scale. (LRH Def. Notes) ARC BREAK NEEDLE, 1 . a “floating needle” occurring above 3.0 or below 2.0 on a calibrated Mark V E-meter with the pc on two cans. An ARC break needle can occur between 2.0 and 3.0 where bad indicators are apparent. (HCOB 21 Oct 68) 2 . An F/N with bad indicators is an ARC break needle. These include propitiation. It is quite usual that a pc has just mentioned grief when the ARC break needle turns on, or some gloomy idea. A real F/N means the pc is out the top; an ARC break needle means he’s out the bottom. He ceases to mock up, through grief. (HCOB 5 Oct 68) 3 . may be dirty, stuck or sticky, but may also give the appearance of floating. The pc will be upset and out of comm at the same time. (HCOB 21 Sept 66) ARC BREAK STRAIGHTWIRE, “Recall an ARC break.” “When?” (HCOB 3 Feb 59) A R C B R O K E N P C s , they gloom and misemote. They criticize and snarl. Sometimes they scream. They blow, they refuse auditing. If an auditor’s pc isn’t bright and happy, there’s an ARC break there with life or the bank or the session. (HCOB 29 Mar 65)

ARC ENGRAM, see SECONDARY ENGRAM. (NOTL, p. 35) ARC LOCKS, 1 . a type of lock which results when affinity, communication, or reality is forced upon the individual by the environment when he does not want it, when it is not rationally necessary, or when one or more of these is inhibited or denied to the individual by others in the environment. (SOS, p. 113) 2 . “permanent” encystments of entheta resulting from the enturbulation of theta by enforcements or inhibitions of affinity, reality or communication and the trapping of this enturbulated theta by the physical pain of some engram or chain of engrams whose perceptions are approximately in the present-time enturbulation. Locks are analytical experiences. (SOS Gloss) ARC SECONDARIES, ARC locks of such magnitude that they must be run as engrams in processing. Or, since locks are often run as engrams, ARC locks of great magnitude. (SOS Gloss)

ARC STRAIGHTWIRE, see STRAIGHTWIRE. A R C S T R A I G H T W I R E R E L E A S E , r e c a l l r e l e a s e . Freedom from deterioration; has hope; knows he/she won’t get any worse. (Scn 0-8, p. 137)

ARC TRIANGLE, 1. it is called a triangle because it has three related points: affinity, reality and the most important, communication. Without affinity there is no reality or communication. Without reality or some agreement, affinity and communication are absent. Without communication, there can be no affinity or reality. It is only necessary to improve one corner of this very valuable triangle in Scn in order to improve the remaining two corners. The easiest corner to improve is communication: improving one’s ability to communicate raises at the same time his affinity for others and life, as well as expands the scope of his agreements. (Scn AD) 2 . this triangle is a symbol of the fact that affinity, reality, and communication act together as a whole entity and that one of them cannot be considered unless the other two are also taken into account. (NOTL, p. 20) ARCU, Affinity, Reality, Communication, Understanding. (HCOB 6 Aug 68) ARF, see AUDITOR REPORT FORM.

ART, a word which summarizes the quality of communication. It therefore follows the laws of communication. Too much originality throws the audience into unfamiliarity and therefore disagreement, as communication contains duplication and “originality” is the foe of duplication. Technique should not rise above the level of workability for the purpose of communication. Perfection cannot be attained at the expense of communication. (HCOB 30 Aug 65) ASHO, American Saint Hill Organization. (BPL 5 Nov 72RA) A S – I S , to view anything exactly as it is without any distortions or lies, at which moment it will vanish and cease to exist. (Scn AD)

AS-IS-NESS, 1. the condition of immediate creation without persistence, and is the condition of existence which exists at the moment of creation and the moment of destruction and is different from other considerations in that it does not contain survival. (PXL, p. 154) 2 . a s – i s – n e s s would be the condition created again in the same time, in the same space, with the same energy and the same mass, the same motion and the same time continuum. (PXL, p. 68) 3 . something that is just postulated or just being duplicated—no alteration taking place. As-is-ness contains no life continuum, no time continuum. (PXL, p. 91)

ASMC, Anatomy of the Spirit of Man Congress. (HCOB 29 Sept 66)

ASSERTED, another name for suggested, used mainly in check out of a goal to be sure, and occasionally in routine nulling when pc is declaring “it is my goal.” (HCOB 1 Aug 62)

ASSESS IN DIANETICS, means choose, from a list or statements which item or thing has the longest read or the pc’s interest. The longest read will also have the pc’s interest oddly enough. (HCOB 23 Apr 69)

ASSESSING BY ELIMINATION, 1 . doing it twice because of a possible instant read fault. Assessing by elimination is done on double (2 item) reads. But a hot auditor does it on best largest instant read. (BTB 11 Apr 74) 2 . after the first assessment the auditor continues to a s s e s s the reading items on the list by elimination down to ONE item. Sometimes some items will read three or four times, but the action is the same. The auditor a s s e s s e s the reading items b y elimination down to one item. (BTB 20 Aug 70R) [N.B. This action is revised by HCOB 14 Mar 1971R, F/N Everything and HCOB 20 Apr 72 Iss.II, C/S Series 78 Product, Purpose and Why and WC Error Correction. ]

ASSESSING, METHODS OF, 1 . the auditor starts at the top and takes up each read until he gets one to F/N. In this case the auditor does not do “Itsa earlier itsa.” He just cleans each read. (HCOB 28 May 70, Correction Lists, Use of) 2 . the auditor starts from the top and on each read cleans it and does itsa earlier itsa to F/N or to a clean no-read and goes on. (HCOB 28 May 70, Correction Lists, Use Of) [N.B. the actions described in 1 and 2 above are revised according to HCOB 14 Mar 1971R, F/N Everything.] 3 . method 3—you take a prepared list and you read it to the pc, and you read the next one to the pc, and the first one that reads you then take it down earlier similar earlier similar, earlier similar, earlier similar, until it F/Ns. (ilO6C12) 4 . the whole list is rapidly assessed over and over until one item stays in and that is given to the pc. (HCOB 28 May 70, Correction Lists, Use Of) [N.B. this action in 4 above is revised according to HCOB 14 Mar 1971R, F/N Everything. ] 5 . method 5—all the way through and then you sort out the reads accordingly, and get them into a sequence that will F/N. (7106C12) 6 . method 6—the L-10 method of assessing a prepared list. You look at the pc and ask him directly every question on the list. (7106C12)

ASSESSMENT, an inventory and evaluation of a preclear, his body and his case to establish processing level and procedure. (HCOB 3 Jul 59, General Information )

ASSESSMENT, 1. is an action done from a prepared list. There is no other word that goes with that. Assessment does not go with anything else but that. That is all that assessment means. It is associated with a prepared list. Only a prepared list. (Class VIII No. 11) 2 . a s s e 6 s m e n t isn’t auditing, it is simply trying to locate something to audit. You say the word right to the pc’s bank. (Class VIII No. 11) 3 . assessment is done by the auditor between the pc’s bank and the meter. There is no need in assessing to look at the pc. Just note which item has the longest fall or BD. The auditor looks at the meter while doing an assessment. (HCOB 21 May 69) 4 . the whole action of obtaining a significant item from a pc. (HCOB 5 Dec 62) 5 . any method of discovering a level on the pre-hav scale for a given pc. (HCOB 7 Nov 62 III)

ASSESSMENT BY INSTANT READ, E-meter drill 24. Purpose: to train the student auditor to assess a list accurately and rapidly by instant read. (EMD, p. 47)

ASSESSMENT BY TONE ARM, E-meter drill 23. Purpose: to train the student auditor to a s s e s s a list accurately by selecting that item which, upon brief discussion, produces the most movement of the tone arm. (EMD, p. 46)

ASSESSMENT FOR LONGEST READ, calling off the items the pc has given and marking down the reads that occur on the meter. The pc is not required to comment during this action and it is better if he does not. (HCOB 29 Apr 69)

ASSESSMENT TRs, used to get a list to read. Assessment questions are delivered with impingement, the auditor accenting or “barking” the last word and syllable. An assessment is done crisply and businesslike with real punch (not shouting) so each line is to the pc. This is not to say that an assessment is done tone 40 or with antagonism. It’s friendly but businesslike and impinges. (BTB 13 Mar 75)

ASSESS ON PRE-HAV, to assess the whole pre-hav scale. (HCOB 13 Jul 61) ASSIST, 1 . an action undertaken by a minister to a s s i s t the spirit to confront physical difficulties which can then be cared for with medical methodology by a medical doctor as needful. (Abil MA, 41) 2 . anything which is done to alleviate a present time discomfort. (Abil 7) 3 . simple, easily done processes that can be applied to anyone to help them recover more rapidly from accidents, mild illness or upsets. (Scn AD) 4 . the processing given to a recently injured person in order to relieve the stress of live energy which is holding the injury in suspension. (Scn 8-8008, p. 38) See also CONTACT ASSIST, TOUCH ASSIST, AUDITING ASSIST.

ASSIST ENGRAM, in the case of the manic, the fanatic or the zealot an engram has entirely blocked at least one of the purpose lines deriving from a dynamic. The engram may be called an assist engram. Its own surcharge (not the dynamic force) leads the individual to believe that he has a high purpose which will permit him to escape pain. This “purpose” is a false purpose not ordinarily sympathetic with the organism, having a hectic quality derived from the pain which is part of it, even though that pain is not wittingly experienced. This assist engram is using the native ability of the organism to accomplish its false “purpose” and brings about a furious and destructive effort on the part of the individual who, without this assist engram could have better accomplished the same goal. The worst feature of the assist engram is that the effort it commands is engramic dramatization of a particular sort, and if the engram itself is restimulated the individual becomes subject to the physical pain and fear which the entire experience contained. Therefore, the false purpose itself is subject to sporadic “sag.” (DTOT, p. 77)


ASSOCIATIVE RESTIMULATORS, 1 . those things connected with the restimulator. (DMSMN, p. 354) 2 . a perceptic in the environment which is confused with an actual restimulator. (DTOT Gloss)

ASSUMPTION, 1 . the name given to the act of a theta being taking over a mest body. This is occasionally found to be part of the record of the GE strong enough to be audited. It is the sensation of being taken over thoroughly, sometimes contains the shock of contact. The assumption takes place in most cases just prior to birth for every GE generation. (HOM, p. 37) 2 . assumption point: where the thetan has taken over the body. (PAB 8)

ASTRAL BODIES, somebody’s delusion. Astral bodies are usually mock-ups which the mystic then tries to believe real. He sees the astral body as something else and then seeks to inhabit it in the most common practices of “astral walking.” Anyone who confuses astral bodies with thetans is apt to have difficulty with theta clearing for the two things are not the same order of similarity. (Scn 8-8008 Gloss) ATE, Auditors’ Training Evening. (HCOB 29 Sept 66)

ATTENTION, 1. when interest becomes fixed, we have attention. (COHA, p. 99) 2 . a motion which must remain at an optimum effort. Attention is aberrated by becoming unfixed and sweeping at random or becoming too fixed without sweeping. (Scn 0-8, p. 75)

ATTENTION UNIT, 1 . a theta energy quantity of awareness existing in the mind in varying quantity from person to person. (HCOB 11 May 65) 2 . actually energy flows of small wavelengths and definite frequency. These are measurable on specifically designed oscilloscopes and meters. No special particle is involved. (Scn 8-80, p. 45)

ATTENTION VALENCE, 1 . t h e v a l e n c e one has assumed because it got attention from another valence. (PAB 95) 2 . one has become the valence B because one wants attention from C. Example—one becomes mother because mother received attention from father while self did not. (FOT, p. 95)

AUD , auditor. (HCOB 23 Aug 65) AUD C, Auditors’ Congress. (HCOB 29 Sept 66)

AUDIO IMAGERY, when a person can recall things he has heard by simply hearing them again. (Exp Jour Winter-Spring 1950) AUDIO-SEMANTIC, part of the standard banks, a special part of sound files; the recording of words heard. (DMSMH, p. 46)

AUDIT FOREVER CASE, the grind case, the audit forever case is an afraid to find out case. (HCOB 15 Mar 62)

AUDITING, 1. the application of Scn processes and procedures to someone by a trained auditor. (BTB 30 Sept 71 IV) 2 . the action of asking a preclear a question (which he can understand and answer), getting an answer to that question and acknowledging him for that answer. Auditing gets rid of unwanted barriers that inhibit, stop or blunt a person’s natural abilities as well as gradiently increasing the abilities a person has so that he becomes more able and his survival, happiness and intelligence increase enormously. (BTB 30 Sept 71 IV) 3 . Scn processing is called auditing by which the auditor (practitioner) listens, computes, and commands. (FOT, p. 88) 4 . to get a result on a pc. (SH Spec 71, 6607C26) 5 . an activity o f a n a u d i t o r t a k i n g over the control of and shepherding the attention of a pc so as to bring about a higher level of confront ability. (SH Spec 48, 6108C31) 6 . directing the pc’s attention on his own case and directing his ability to talk to the auditor. (SH Spec 49, 6109C05) 7 . the reversing of other-determined flows by gradient scales, putting the pc at cause again. (HCOB 7 May 59) 8 . a communicating process or a communication process with the end goal of raising the ability of another person so that he can handle his bank, body, others, and environment in general. (5707C17) 9 . the process of bringing a balance between freedom and barriers. Auditing is a game of exteriorization versus havingness. (Abil 25)

AUDITING ASSIST, an assist done by a trained auditor using an E-meter. It consists of “running out” the physically painful experience the person has just undergone, accident, illness, operation or emotional shock. This erases the “physical trauma” and speeds recovery to a remarkable degree. (HCOB 2 Apr 69)

AUDITING BY LIST, 1 . a technique using prepared l i s t s of questions. These isolate the trouble the pc is having with auditing. Such lists also cover and handle anything that could happen to a student or staff member. (LRH ED 257 Int) 2 . the earlier genus of this process was sec checking on the Joburg. Any list can be used. The questions asked are generalized and without time limiters; i.e. Has a withhold been missed? Have you been given a wrong goal? etc. If the line when asked has an instant read, say “That reads” then “What do you consider this could be?” or “What considerations do you have about this?” Let the pc answer all he wants to. This is continued until the line goes clean. If the line does not read say “That’s clean” and move on to the next line of the l i s t . This process gets charge off the case. (HCOB 23 Apr 64) [This process was later revised as follows.] 3 . we now F/N everything, we do not tell the pc what the meter is doing. This changes auditing by lists in both respects. We do not say to the pc, “That’s clean” or “That reads.” Use any authorized published l i s t . Green Form for general review, L1C for ARC breaks, L4B for listed items, list errors. You are looking for an instant read that occurs at the end of the exact syllable of the question. If the question reads look expectantly at the pc. You can repeat the question by just saying it again if pc doesn’t begin to talk. (HCOB 3 Jul 71) [The above is a brief summary only. The full exact procedure can be found in the referenced HCOBs.]

AUDITING COMMAND, 1. a certain, exact command which the preclear can follow and perform. (FOT, p. 88) 2. an auditing command, when executed, has had performed exactly what it said and nothing else. An auditing command has no understoods about it. There is no pre-arrangement about an auditing command except maybe knowing the language. (SH Spec 25, 6107C05)

AUDITING COMMAND CYCLE, auditor asks, pc replies and knows he has answered, auditor acknowledges. PC knows auditor has acknowledged. That is a full auditing command cycle. (HCOB 12 Nov 59)

AUDITING COMM CYCLE, this is the auditing comm cycle that is always in use: 1) is the pc ready to receive the command? (appearance, presence), 2) auditor gives command/question to pc (cause, distance, effect), 3) pc looks to bank for answer (itsa maker line), 4) pc receives answer from bank, 5) pc gives answer to auditor (cause, distance, effect), 6) auditor acknowledges pc, 7) auditor sees that pc received ack (attention), 8) new cycle beginning with (1). (HCOB 30 Apr 71)

AUDITING CYCLE, 1 . the basic of a u d i t i n g i s a n a u d i t i n g c y c l e of command which operates as an attention director. Call it a restimulator if you want, but it’s an attention director, eliciting a response from the pc to as-is that area and who knows he has done so when he receives from the practitioner an acknowledgment that it has occurred. That is the auditing cycle. (SH Spec 189, 6209C18) 2 . there are basically two communication c y c l e s between the auditor and the pc that make up the auditing cycle. They are cause, distance, effect with the auditor at cause and the pc at effect, and cause, distance, effect, with the pc at cause and the auditor at effect. These are completely distinct one from the other. (HCOB 23 May 71R IV)

AUDITING GOOFS, minor unintentional omissions or mistakes in the application of Scn procedures to a person by a trained Scientologist. (ISE, p. 37)

AUDITING PROCEDURE, the general model of how one goes about addressing a preclear. (FOT, p. 96)

AUDITING SESSION, 1. a precise period of time during which the auditor listens to the preclear’s ideas about himself. (Abil 155) 2 . a period in which an auditor and preclear are in a quiet place where they will not be disturbed. The auditor gives the preclear certain and exact commands which the preclear can follow. (FOT, p. 88)

AUDITING SUPERVISOR, on the Saint Hill Special Briefing Course and in academies, supervision of the auditing section is done by the auditing supervisor, and auditing instructor or instructors. The auditing supervisor (or in some cases the course supervisor as at Saint Hill) assigns all sessions and teams. (HCO PL 21 Oct 62)

AUDITOR, 1. one who listens and computes; a Scn practitioner. (HCOB 26 May 59) 2 . one who has been trained in the technology of Scn. An auditor applies standard technology to preclears. (Aud 18 UK) 3 . a person who through church training becomes skilled in the successful application of Dn and Scn to his family, friends and the public to achieve the ability gained as stated on the Gradation Chart for his class of training. (FBDL 18, 2 Dec 70) 4 . Scn processing is done on the principle of making an individual look at his own existence, and improve his ability to confront what he is and where he is. An auditor is the person trained in the technology and whose job it is to ask the person to look, and get him to do so. The word auditor is used because it means one who listens, and a Scn auditor does listen. (Scn 0-8, p. 14) 5 . the word auditor is used, not “operator” or “therapist,” because auditing is a cooperative effort between the auditor and the patient, and the law of affinity is at work. (DMSMH, p. 175) Abbr. Aud.

AUDITOR CLEARANCE, 1 . rudiment: “Is it all right if I audit you?” (HCOB 21 Mar 61) 2 . beginning rudiment: “Are you willing to talk to me about your difficulties?” (HCOB 21 Dec 61)

AUDITOR COMM LAG, lack of speed in giving commands. (HCOB 9 Aug 69) AUDITOR C/S, a sheet on which the auditor writes the C/S instructions for the next session. (BTB 3 Nov 72R)

AUDITOR EXPERTISE DRILLS, drills to improve the quality of auditing by familiarizing auditors with the exact procedure of each auditing action through the use of d r i l l s . These d r i l l s are numbered as Expertise Drill-1 (ED-1), Expertise Drill-2 (ED-2), etc. (BTB 20 Jul 74)

AUDITOR PRESENCE, 1 . the impingement on a pc; familiarity, certainty that something is going to happen, not scared of confronting; ability to make an impact. (6102C14). 2. the auditor is as real and has as much presence to the pc as the rudiments stay in and has as little presence as the rudiments go out. (SH Spec 78, 6111C09)

AUDITOR REPORT FORM, 1. an auditor’s report form is made out at the end of each session. It gives an outline of what actions were taken during the session. (BTB 6 Nov 72R VI) 2 . they give the details of the beginning of the session, condition of pc, what’s intended, the wording of the process, total TA action. (HCOB 24 Jul 64) Abbr. ARF.

AUDITOR RUDIMENT, 1 . O/Ws off on Auditor or Auditors or PCs until OK to be audited. (HCOB 8 Jan 60) 2 . Auditor Clearance is the most important of the rudiments because if the Auditor is not cleared negative results will be obtained on the profile of the preclear. To handle charge on the Auditor, TR 5N should be run if charge does not blow on a little two-way comm. Overt-Withhold on the Auditor is far too accusative and invalidates the PC. (HCOB 25 Jan 61) 3 . Auditor Clearance, “Is it all right if I Audit you?” if not, clear objection, or use TR5N or “Who should I be to Audit you?” or “Who am I?” depending on nature of the difficulty. (HCOB 21 Mar 61) [Note this HCOB was later revised by the next referenced HCOB] 4. Auditor Clearance, “Are you willing to talk to me about your difficulties?” (HCOB 21 Dec 61)

AUDITOR’S CODE, 1 . a list of the things one must or must not do to preserve the theta-ness of theta and to inhibit the enturbulation of theta by the auditor. (SOS, Bk. 2, p. 12) 2 . a collection of rules (do’s and don’ts) that an auditor follows while auditing someone, which ensures that the preclear will get the greatest possible gain out of the processing that he is having. (Scn AD) 3 . the governing set of rules for the general activity of auditing. (FOT, p. 88) 4 . the Auditor’s Code was evolved from years of observing processing. It is the technical code of Scientology. It contains the important errors which harm cases. It could be called the moral code of Scn. (CoHA, p. 3)

AUDITOR’S HANDBOOK, the manual current at the time of the Phoenix Lectures which contained the Axioms and the Route One and Route Two processes of Intensive Procedure. It forms the basis of and is wholly included in The Creation of Human Ability. (PXL Gloss)

AUDITOR TRAINEE PROGRESS BOARD, a v e r t i c a l auditor trainee progress board is kept by the intern supervisor. This has a space under each of the headings, left to right. Boxes along the top, left to right, serve to indicate the exact action the trainee is doing. The trainee’s name is on a tab that is pinned to the space. The name tab is merely dated each time it is moved to the right. Thus the intern super can chase up any faltering student. (HCOB 7 Jan 72) AUTOGENETIC, there are two kinds of illness: the first could be called autogenetic, which means that it originated within the organism and was self- generated, and exogenetic, which means that the origin of the illness was exterior. Psychosomatic illness would be autogenetic, generated by the body itself. (DMSMH, p. 92)

AUTOMATIC BANK, when a pc gets picture after picture after picture all out of control. This occurs when one isn’t following an assessed somatic or complaint or has chosen the wrong one which the pc is not ready to confront or by overwhelming the pc with rough TRs or going very nonstandard. (HCOB 23 Apr 69)

AUTOMATICITY, 1 . a sudden very rapid machine-gun fire outflow of answers given by the preclear. (HCOB 10 May 65) 2 . non-self-determined action which ought to be determined by the individual. The individual ought to be determining an action and he is not determining it. That’s a pretty broad consideration. It’s something not under the control of the individual. But if we said, something not under the control of the individual, as a total, unqualified definition of automaticity, we would have this, then: that car that just went down the street would be an automaticity to you. You didn’t have control of it. So this is not a precision definition. The precision definition has “which ought to be under the control of the individual.” (Abil 6) 3 . anything that goes on running outside the control of the individual. (Abil SW) 4 . something set up automatically to run without further attention from yourself. (2ACC-6A 5311CM20) 5 . there are three kinds of automaticities, those which create things, and those which make things persist, and those which destroy things. (2ACC-19A 5312CM09)

AUTOMATIC MOCK-UP, a picture of something which didn’t really happen. (PAB 99) A U X . P.H., auxiliary pre-hav scale. (HCOB 3 Dec 61) A V U , 1. Authority and Verifications Unit. (HCO PL 15 Aug 73) also known as 2. Authorizations and Verifications Unit. (HCO PL 28 Jul 73RA)

AWARENESS, 1 . the ability to perceive the existence of. (HCOB 4 Jan 73) 2 . awareness itself is perception. (2ACC-8B 5311CM24)


AWARENESS OF AWARENESS UNIT, 1 . an actuality of no mass, no wave- length, no position in space or relation in time, but with the quality of creating or destroying mass or energy, locating itself or creating space, and of re-relating time. (Dn 55 .!, p. 29) 2 . the individual himself. (5410CM20) 3 . the thetan is the awareness of awareness unit. (5410C10D)

AWARENESS SCALE, there are fifty-two levels of awareness from Unexistence up to the state of Clear. By “level of awareness” is meant that of which a being is aware. A being who is at a level on this scale is aware only of that level and the others below it. (HCO PL 5 May 65)

AXIOMS, 1 . the Axioms are agreed-upon considerations. They are the central considerations which have been agreed upon. They are considerations. A self- evident truth is the dictionary definition of an a x i o m . No definition could be further from the truth. In the first place, a truth cannot be self-evident because it is a static. So, therefore, there is no self-evidency in any truth. There is not a self- evident truth, never has been, never will be. However, there are self-evident agreements and that is what an axiom is. (5501C21) 2 . statements of natural laws on the order of those of the physical sciences. (DMSMH, p. 6)

BACHELOR OF SCIENTOLOGY, the standard B Scn/HCS course is in actuality the 20th ACC. The tapes to be used are the 20th ACC tapes. The texts are Scientology Clear Procedure Issue One and ACC Clear Procedure as published in booklet form. The B Scn/HCS course is five weeks in length. If comm course and upper indoc have not been covered by the student, the course becomes seven weeks in length. (HCOB 26 Dec 58) Abbr. B. Scn.

BACK TO BATTERY, Slang. an artillery term. A gun, after it fires, is said to go out of battery, which is to say, it recoils. Then after it’s fired it’s supposed to go back to battery, which is sitting the way you see them in photographs. They use the term in slang to indicate somebody who is now fixed up. So this guy will be all right for something or, what he has had will now be over. I could give you a purer definition, and say it is a completed case for that level, but the C/S doesn’t normally think like that. (7204C07 SO II)

BAD CONTROL, a fallacy actually, control is either well done or not done. If a person is controlling something he is controlling it. If he is controlling it poorly, he is not controlling it. A machine which is being run well is controlled. A machine which is not being run well is not being controlled. Therefore we see that bad control is actually a not-control. People who tell you that control is bad are trying to tell you that automobile accidents and industrial accidents are good. (POW, p. 40)

BAD INDICATORS, the condition isn’t getting any better, not getting a lessening of the condition. Because we’re not getting a lessening of the condition we therefore have losses. (SH Spec 3 6401C09) See also INDICATORS.

BAD MEMORY, 1 . accumulated occlusion of it all, but it’s nevertheless non-confront. (SH Spec 72, 6607C28) 2 . interposed blocks between control center and facsimiles. (HFP Gloss) See also AMNESIA.

BAD NEEDLE, a rock slam or a dirty needle or a stuck needle or a stage four needle. (HCO PL 30 Aug 70) B A N K , 1 . the mental image picture collection of the pc. It comes from computer technology where all data is in a “bank.” (HCOB 30 Apr 69) 2 . a colloquial name for the reactive mind. This is what the procedures of Scn are devoted to disposing of, for it is only a burden to an individual and he is much better off without it. (Scn AD) 3 . merely a combination of energy and significance and this comprises a mass that sits there in its own made up space, and it’s plotted against the pc’s experiential track known as time. (SH Spec 65, 6507C27) See also REACTIVE MIND.

BANK-AGREEMENT, the common denominator of a group is the reactive bank. Thetans without banks have different responses. They only have their banks in common. They agree then only on bank principles. The bank-agreement has been what has made the earth a hell. (HCO PL 7 Feb 65)

BANK BEEFING UP, the sensation of increasing solidity of masses in the mind. (HCOB 19 Jan 67)

BANK MONITOR, the file clerk is the bank monitor. “He” monitors for both the reactive engram bank and the standard banks. (DMSMH, p. 198) See FILE CLERK.

BANKY, Slang. a term which means that a person is being influenced by his bank and is displaying bad temper, irritability, lack of cooperation and the signs of dramatization. He is being irrational. (Scn AD)

BARK, assessments are done to impinge and get a meter to read. The auditor barks the last word and the last syllable so it does impinge. You don’t drop your voice or down-curve your voice tone at the end of the line as that will cost you reads. You punch the last syllable to make it read and to the pc. The accent is at the end of the sentence routinely, not on the earliest part. (BTB 13 Mar 75)

BARRIER, 1 . something which an individual cannot communicate beyond. (Dn 55 .1, p. 126) 2 . space, energy, matter and time— each is only a barrier to knowingness. A barrier is a barrier only in that it impedes knowingness. (COHA, p. 151) 3 . from Scientology Axiom 28: Barriers consist of Space, Interpositions (such as walls and screens of fast-moving particles) and Time. (COHA, p. 18) BASIC, 1 . the first incident (engram, lock, overt act) on any chain. (HCOB 15 May 63) 2 . the first experience recorded in mental image pictures of that type of pain, sensation, discomfort, etc. Every chain has its basic. It is a peculiarity and a fact that when one gets down to the basic on a chain, (a) it erases and (b) the whole chain vanishes for good. Basic is simply earliest. (HCOB 23 Apr 69)

BASIC AREA, 1 . the time track from the first recording on the sperm or ovum track to the first missed menstrual period of the mother. (SOS Gloss) 2 . early prenatal. (DMSMH, p. 224) BASIC AUDITING, 1 . the fundamental and most important elements of auditing—the skill of handling and keeping the preclear in session, proper use o f t h e auditing communication cycle, the repetitive use of the auditing communication cycle to flatten a process, the correct application of the technology of Scn, and the ability to use and read and E-meter correctly. (Scn AD) 2 . the handling of the pc as a being, the auditing cycle, the meter. (HCOB 26 Nov 63)

BASIC-BASIC, 1 . this belongs in Scn, not Dn. It means the most basic basic of all basics and results in clearing. It is found on the Clearing Course. (HCOB 23 Apr 69) 2 . the first engram on the whole time track.(HCOB 15 May 63) 3 . any similar circumstance repetitive through a person’s whole track has a first time it occurred and that first time that it occurred we call basic-basic. (SH Spec 69, 6110Cl9)

BASIC CYCLE OF ACTION, create, resist effects (survive) and destroy; create an object, have it resist effects (survive) and then destroy it; create a situation, continue it and change it, and destroy or end it. (COHA, p. 249)

BASIC ENGRAM, the earliest engram on an engram chain. (DTOT, p. 112) See also BASIC.

BASIC GOAL, that goal native to the personality for a lifetime. It is second only in importance to survival itself. It is incident to the individuation of the person. A child of two knows its basic goal. It is compounded from genetic generations of experience. It can be found and reduced in some long past heavy effort facsimile such as death. It is neither advisable nor inadvisable to tamper with it. Much experience aligns on it. Desensitized, it would be supplanted by another basic goal. (AP&A, p. 42)

BASIC INDIVIDUAL, 1 . the basic individual is not a buried unknown or a different person, but an intensity of all that is best and most able in the person. T h e b a s i c i n d i v i d u a l equals the same person minus his pain and dramatizations. (DTOT, pp. 36-37) 2 . basic individual and Clear are nearly synonymous since they denote the unaberrated self in complete integration and in a state of highest possible rationality. A Clear is one who has become the basic individual through auditing. (DTOT, p. 34) See also CLEAR.

BASIC LIE, the basic lie is that a consideration which was made was not made or that it was different. (PXL, p. 181)

BASIC OVERT ACT, making somebody else want mest. (HCOB 17 Mar 60) BASIC PERSONALITY, 1 . a person’s own identity. (FOT, p. 31) 2. the basic personality, the file clerk, the core of “I” which wants to be in command of the organism, the most fundamental desires of the personality, may be considered synonymous for our purposes. (DMSMH, p. 394) 3 . the individual himself. (DMSMH, p. 394) Abbr. B.P. (BP) .

BASIC PRINCIPLE OF EXISTENCE, the basic principle of existence is survival and that is only true for the body. A spirit cannot help but survive whether in heaven or in hell or on earth or in a theta trap. (Ability Mag 5)

BASIC PROGRAM, the program laid out in the Classification and Gradation Chart. (HCOB 12 Jun 70)

BASIC PURPOSE, it is a clinical fact that basic purpose is apparently known to the individual before he is two years of age: talent and inherent personality and basic purpose go together as a package. They seem to be part of the genetic pattern. (DMSMH, p. 238)

BASICS OF SCIENTOLOGY, axioms, scales, codes, fundamental theory about the thetan and the mind. (HCOB 3 May 62) BASIC TRUTH, a static has no mass, meaning, mobility, no wave-length, no time, no location in space, no space. This has the technical name of “basic truth.” (PXL, p. 180)

BA STEPS, bring about steps—R6 material. (HCOB 23 Aug 65) B . D . , before Dianetics. (DMSMH, p. 266) B D , blowdown. (SH Spec 309, 6309C19) B . E . , before earth. (5203CM10) B E A U T Y , b e a u t y is a wave-length closely resembling theta or a harmony approximating theta. (Scn 8-80, p. 26)

BE, DO, HAVE, see CONDITIONS OF EXISTENCE. BEEP METER, a machine developed by Volney Mathison for chiropractors from a model furnished him by a chiropractor. Wherever a person has a painful spot on his body, if you put the electrode on it, the machine goes “beep,” but right alongside of the painful spot, it doesn’t beep. (ESTO 6, 7203C03 SO III)

BEFORE EARTH, a theta line incident. There is a before earth and a before mest universe in all banks. The incidents are not dissimilar. The only thing remarkable about these before incidents is that they are a very definite degradation and condemnation of the preclear. (HOM, p. 66) Abbr. B.E. B E G I N N I N G R U D I M E N T S , 1 . r u d i m e n t s at the b e g i n n i n g of session involve: (1) getting pc comfortable in environment; (2) getting pc willing to talk to auditor about pc’s own case; (3) getting off withholds; (4) checking for and handling PTPs. The above are the beginning rudiments. (HCOB 14 Dec 61) 2 . are normally devoted to getting the atmosphere and the environment out of the road, so you can audit the pc. (SH Spec 45, 6108C24)

BEHAVIOR PATTERNS, conflicts in the commands contained in engrams and conflicts between the basic drive and the engramic contents combine into behavior patterns. (DTOT, p. 55) BEING, 1 . a viewpoint; he is as much a being as he is able to assume viewpoints. (Scn 8-8008, p. 17) 2 . an energy production source. (Scn 8-80, p. 33) See also THETAN.

BEINGNESS, 1 . the assumption or choosing of a category of identity. Beingness is assumed by oneself or given to oneself, or is attained. Examples of beingness would be one’s own name, one’s profession, one’s physical characteristics, one’s role in a game—each and all of these things could be called one’s beingness. (NSOL, p. 50) 2 . the person one should be in order to survive. (SH Spec 19, 6106C23) 3 . essentially, an identification of self with an object. (COHA, p. 76)

BEINGNESS OF MAN, essentially the beingness of theta itself acting in the mest and other universes in the accomplishment of the goals of theta and under the determination of a specific individual and particular personality for each being. (Scn 8-8008, p. 11)

BEINGNESS PROCESSING, is an alter-isness p r o c e s s . When a case is extremely inverted it is necessary to get the case up to a level where it can identify itself with something. Beingness is essentially identification of self with an object. In running beingness processing it will be discovered that the imagination of the preclear revives to a marked extent. Beingness processing recovers the various valences which the thetan is trying to avoid. The matter of valences is also a matter of packages of abilities, and where an individual is unable to be something which has certain definite abilities, he also cannot achieve those abilities, and this, in itself, is the heart of disability. (COHA, pp. 76-79)

BEING OTHER BODIES, 1 . out of valence; being another identity than his own. He’s in one body and he’s being another body. (5904C08) 2 . that’s shame. There is an emotion of shame connected with being other bodies. One is ashamed to be oneself, he is somebody else. (5904C08)

BELOW THE CENTER LINE, the American APA has a center line which is zero, above which we get plus and b e l o w which we get minus. An OCA is essentially the same thing, except the OCA has a better center graph. There are two conditions here below the center line: any negative, and “in the white.” (7203C30SO)

BENEFIT, defined as that which would enhance survival. (Scn 8-8008, p. 6) B . E . R . , bad exam report. (BTB 5 Nov 72R III) See also RED TAG. B E T R A Y A L , 1 . a b e t r a y a l is help turned to destruction. When help fails, destruction occurs, or so goes the most basic consideration behind living. (HCOB 6 Feb 58) 2 . the knock-in of anchor points. One’s anchor points are pulled out and then they are suddenly knocked in. That operation, when done exteriorly by somebody else is betrayal. (Spr Lect 17 5304CM08)

BETTER, negative gain, things disappear that have been annoying or unwanted. (HCOB 28 Feb 59)

BETTERMENT, to us, is a lessening of a bad condition. (SH Spec 3, 6401C09)

BETTERMENT LAG, how many hours you have to process a preclear before he can become cause. (5410CM06)

BETWEEN-LIVES AREA, 1 . the experiences of a thetan during the time between the loss of a body and the assumption of another. (PXL, p. 105) 2 . at death the theta being leaves the body and goes to the between-lives area. Here he “reports in,” is given a strong forgetter implant and is then shot down to a body just before it is born. At least that is the way the old Invader in the earth area was operating. (HOM, p. 68)

BETWEEN SESSIONS, we don’t mean overnight. We mean solely, strictly, completely and utterly if they get out of the auditor’s sight at any time during a break. (SH Spec 7, 6106C05)

BIG MIDDLE RUDIMENTS, the big mid ruds can be used in the following places: At the start of any session. Examples: “Since the last time I audited you . . .” “Since the last time you were audited . . .” “Since you decided to be audited . . .” In or at the end of any session. Examples: “In this session . . .” On a list. Examples: “On this list . . .” “On (say list question) . . .” On a goal or item. Example: “On (say goal or item) . . .” Here is the correct wording and order of use for b i g m i d r u d s . “. . . has anything been suppressed?” “. . . is there anything you have been careful of?” “. . . is there anything you have failed to reveal?” “. . . has anything been invalidated?” “. . . has anything been suggested?” “. . . has any mistake been made?” “. . . is there anything you have been anxious about?” “. . . has anything been protested?” “. . . has anything been decided?” (HCOB 8 Mar 63) Abbr. B.M.R.

BIG THETA BOP, one-third of the dial back and forth or one-half of the dial back and forth, something like that. That’s a bop on the loss of and still trying to hold onto the home universe. (PDC 15)

BIG TIGER, the same drill as the tiger drill except that it additionally uses nearly found out, protest, anxious about and careful of. One shifts to big tiger when making sure of the last item in on the list or a goal that fires strongly. (HCOB 29 Nov 62) See also TIGER DRILL.

BIRTH, 1. birth is one of the most remarkable engrams in terms of contagion. Here the mother and child both receive the same engram which differs only in the location of pain and the depths of “unconsciousness.” Whatever the doctors, nurses and other people associated with the delivery say to the mother during labor and birth and immediately afterward before the child is taken away is recorded in the reactive bank, making an identical engram in both mother and child. (DMSMN, p. 136) 2. birth is ordinarily a severely painful unconscious experience. It is ordinarily an engram of some magnitude. Anyone who has been born then possesses at least one engram. (DTOT, p. 52) BIs, bad indicators. (BTB 6 Nov 72RA IV) BLAB, Slang. there may once in a while be a person who reads nicely at their clear reading with no action and you’re very suspicious the guy isn’t Clear. This could be a complete “blab” no responsibility case—a mockery of Clear. (HCOB 26 May 60, Security Checks)

BLACK AND WHITE, 1 . the name of a string of incidents where the theta body was implanted with electronic waves. (5208 CM07C) 2 . the two extreme manifestations of perception on the part of the preclear. Seeing whiteness or color the thetan is able to discern or differentiate between objects, actions and spatial dimensions. Energy can also manifest itself as blackness. (Scn 8-8008, p. 50) 3 . a rapid process which eliminates the need for running single incidents, locks, or secondaries, and is effective only in occluded cases. Wide-open cases cannot see black or white, but see color. These black areas, which are curtains over occluded facsimiles along the time track, erase, or become white, when attention is centered on them, and turning the field white by concentrating on the aesthetic band is the only concern of the auditor or preclear. Heavy somatics may be expected during “black and white” processing, but these can be avoided by keeping the field white. (Scn 8-80 Gloss)

BLACK DIANETICS, 1 . hypnotism. (5109C17A) 2 . unscrupulous groups and individuals have been practicing a form a Black Dianetics on their fellow man for centuries. They have not called it that but the results have been and are the same. There are those who, to control, resort to narcotics, suggestion, gossip, slander—the thousands of overt and covert ways that can be classified as Black Dianetics. (Scn Jour Iss 3G) BLACK FIELD, just some part of a mental image picture where the preclear is looking at blackness. It is part of some lock, secondary or engram. In Scn it can occur (rarely) when the pc is exterior, looking at something b l a c k . It responds to R3R. (HCOB 23 Apr 69)

BLACK FIELD CASE, a case that could not run engrams because he could not see them. (HCOB 14 Jan 60)

BLACK FIVE, 1 . a heavily occluded case characterized by mental pictures consisting of masses of blackness. This is a “step V” in early procedures such as Standard Operating Procedure 8 . (PXL, p. 141) 2 . a level of non-perception, whether the person is seeing b l a c k n e s s or invisibility. (SH Spec 271, 6305C20) 3 . a no-responsibility case. (COHA, p. 161)

BLACKNESS, 1 . usually the protective coating between the preclear and the pictures. (Abil SW, p. 15) 2 . both of these conditions regarding blackness exist. The machine that makes blackness and having a black picture in re-stimulation; there is also simply the blackness of looking around inside a head. (Abil SW, p. 15) 3 . the blackness on the case is indicative of a scarcity of viewpoints, a necessity for safeguarding and protective “screens,” a defensive and propitiative attitude towards existence, too much loss of allies and good, too much loss of space and finally and most importantly, loss of those who have evaluated for the preclear. The sudden departure of the person who has evaluated for the preclear results in loss of that viewpoint which the preclear unwittingly had assumed. (PAB 8) 4 . either the pc’s unwillingness to face things or his basic bank. It cures if you do Dianetics by gradients. (HCOB 3 Apr 66)

BLACKNESS OF CASES, the blackness of cases is an accumulation of the case’s own or another’s lies. (PXL, p. 183)

BLACK PANTHER MECHANISM, 1. in Dn considerable slang has been developed by patients and Dianeticists and they call the “Black Panther Mechanism” a neglect of the problem. One supposes this stems from the ridiculousness of biting black panthers. (DMSMH, p. 147) 2 . there are five ways in which a human being reacts toward a source of danger. Let us suppose that a particularly black-tempered black panther is sitting on the stairs and that a man named Gus is sitting in the living room. Gus wants to go to bed. But there is the black panther. The problem is to get upstairs. There are five things that Gus can do: (1) he can go attack the black panther; (2) he can run out of the house and flee the black panther; (3) he can use the back stairs and avoid the black panther; (4) he can neglect the black panther; and (5) he can succumb to the black panther. These are the five mechanisms. All actions can be seen to fall within these courses. And all actions are visible in life. (DMSMH, pp. 147- 148)

BLAME, 1 . it’s simply punishing other bodies. (5904C08) 2 . when one individual assigns cause to another entity, he delivers power to that entity. This assignment may be called blame, the arbitrary election of cause. (DAB, Vol. II, p. 233) 3 . bl e is the negation of your responsibility. You can blame self, that’s the last stage, or you can blame somebody else. That’s an effort not to be responsible. (5112CM28B)

BLANKET, to settle down over a mest body (one or more mest bodies). (5206CM26B)

BLANKETING, this incident consists of throwing oneself as a thetan over another thetan or over a mest body. Blanketing is done to obtain an emotional impact or even to kill. It is strongest in sexual incidents where the thetan throws two mest bodies together in the sexual act in order to experience their emotions. (HOM, p. 62)

BLINDNESS, extreme unawareness. (PAB 117) BLIND REPAIR, when no FES is done, or when the pc has lost his folder, one is doing a blind repair. The progress program and advance program may have holes in them. (HCOB 6 Oct 70)

BLINKLESS TR 0, there is no such thing. Sitting with any attention on the body just isn’t confront—you aren’t doing the drill right. If your body blinks then OK, but if you are making it blink by having attention on the eyes then your TR 0 is out. (HCOB 8 Dec 74)

BLOCKING OUT, identifying incidents on the time track by dating, moving the time track to that date, asking the pc what is there, finding the duration, moving the pc through it to the end, asking the pc what happened, checking for earlier beginning, moving the pc through the incident again . ( SH Spec 272, 6306C11) BLOW, n .1 . the sudden dissipation of mass in the mind with an accompanying feeling of relief. (Scn AD) 2 . a definite manifestation and the pc must say “something blew” or “it disappeared” or “it’s gone” or “it vanished,” not “I feel lighter.” (HCOB 24 Sept 71) 3 . the phenomena of obsessive efforts to individuate. (HCOB 12 Jan 61) 4 . departures, sudden and relatively unexplained, from sessions, posts, jobs, locations and areas. (HCOB 31 Dec 59)—v. Slang. 1 . unauthorized departure from an area, usually caused by misunderstood data or overts. (HCOB 19 Jun 71 III) 2 . leave, get out, rush away, cease to be where one should really be or just cease to be audited. (BCR, p. 23)

BLOWDOWN, 1 . a tone arm motion to the left made to keep the needle on the dial. (HCOB 29 Apr 69) 2 . a period of relief and cognition to a pc while it is occurring and for a moment after it stops. When the auditor has to move the tone arm from right to left to keep the needle on the dial and the movement is .1 divisions or more, then a blowdown is occurring. (HCOB 3 Aug 65) 3 . a movement of the needle from left to right as you face a meter with a hang-up at the right. That’s got to be included in training. It’s whether or not the needle stays over to the right that makes the b l o w d o w n , not what you do with the tone arm. (SH Spec 21, 6406C04) 4 . the meter reaction of having found the correct by-passed charge. (HCOB 19 Aug 63) Abbr. BD.


BLOW-UP, in the low tone arm case, means a sudden approach of the tone arm from a non-optimum (below 2 .0) reading toward the optimum read. (HCOB 1 Sept 60) BLUE SHEET, Return Programs (now called Advance Programs) are on bright blue sheets. (HCOB 25 Jun 70) B.M.R., big mid ruds. (SH Spec 320, 6310C31)

BOARD POLICY LETTERS, color flash—green ink on cream paper. These are the issues of the Boards of Directors of the Churches of Scientology and are separate and distinct from those HCO Policy Letters written by LRH. Only LRH issues may be printed green on white for policy and only LRH issues may have the prefix HCO. These Board issues are valid as P o l i c y . The purpose of this distinction is to keep LRH’s comm lines pure and to clearly distinguish between Source material and other issues and so that any conflict and/or confusion on Source can easily be resolved.

BOARD TECHNICAL BULLETIN, color flash—red ink on cream paper. These are the issues of the Boards of Directors of the Churches of Scientology and are separate and distinct from those HCO Bulletins written by LRH. Only LRH issues may be printed red on white for Technical Bulletins and only LRH issues may have the prefix HCO. These Board issues are valid as tech. The purpose of this distinction is to keep LRH’s comm lines pure and to clearly distinguish between Source material and other issues and so that any conflict and/or confusion on Source can easily be resolved. (BPL 14 Jan 74R I) Abbr. BTB.

BODHI, 1. one who has attained intellectual and ethical perfection by human means. This probably would be a Dn Release. (PXL, p. 18) 2 . B o d h i means enlightenment or, alternately, one who has attained intellectual and ethical perfection by human means. (HOA, Intro)

BODY, 1 . a carbon-oxygen engine which runs at 98 .6°F. The theta being is the engineer running this engine in a Homo sapiens. (HOM, p. 42) 2 . a solid appendage which makes the person recognizable. (PAB 125) 3 . an identifying form or non-identifiable form to facilitate the control of, the communication of and with, and the havingness for the thetan in his existence in the mest universe. (HCOB 3 Jul 59) 4 . the thetan’s communication center. (CFC, p. 9) 5 . a carbon- oxygen engine which runs on low combustion fuel, generally derived from other life forms. The body is directly monitored by the genetic entity in activities such as respiration, heartbeat and endocrine secretions; but these activities may be modified by the thetan. (Scn 8-8008, p. 8) 6 . a physical object. It is not the being himself. As a body has mass it tends to remain motionless unless moved and tends to keep going in a certain direction unless steered. (HCOB 10 May 72)

BODY IN PAWN, an incident of protecting b o d i e s . Societies have gone totally batty on the track with this and we call it bodies in pawn. (5904C08)

BODY MOTION, any motion of the b o d y which causes the tone arm to move falsely up or down. Body motion is never recorded in a session. (EMD, p. 25)

BODY-PLUS-THETAN SCALE, from 0.0 to 4 .0 on the tone scale, and the position on this scale is established by the social environment and education of the composite being and is a stimulus-response scale. (Scn 8-8008, p. 76)

BODY REACTIONS, one of the ten main needle actions of an E-meter. The deep breathing of a preclear, a sigh, a yawn, a sneeze, a stomach growl can any one of them make a needle react. They’re not important once you know what they are. (EME, pp. 18-19)

BODY VALENCE, human identity. (HCOB 14 Jul 56)

BOGGED STUDENT, he is groggy or puzzled or frowning or even emotionally upset by his misunderstood words. When not caught and handled he will go to sleep or just stare into space. (HCO PL 26 Jun 72)

BOIL-OFF, v. to become groggy and seem to go to sleep. (HFP, p. 100)—n. 1 . usually a flow running too long in one direction. (7204C07 SO III) 2 . a manifestation of unconsciousness, is very mild, and simply means that some period of the person’s life wherein he was unconscious has been slightly restimulated. (Scn Jour ISS. 14-G) 3 . a state of unconsciousness produced by a confusion of effort impinging upon one area. It is a slow motion unconsciousness. (PDC 29) 4 . a condition of somnolence which is sometimes indistinguishable from sleep. (SOS, Bk. 2, p. 133) 5 . boil-off was originally and sedately named “somatic reduction,” but such erudition has been outvoted by the fact that it has never been used. (DMSMH, p. 303) 6 . it actually is a flow which is run too long in one direction. That’s what b o i l – o f f , anaten, etc. is. (SH Spec 229, 6301C10)

BONUS PACKAGE, occasionally you get a bonus package off one list. In addition to the item you are looking for, sometimes two R/Sing items will show up on the same list opposing each other and blow. They oppose each other, not what you’re listing. (HCOB 23 Nov 62) Abbr. BP.

BOOK AND BOTTLE, Opening Procedure by Duplication. Il;s goal is the separating of time, moment from moment. This is done by getting a preclear to duplicate the same action over and over again with two dissimilar objects. In England this process is called “Book and Bottle,” probably because these two familiar objects are the most used in doing Opening Procedure by Duplication. (Dn 55!, p. 114)

BOOK AUDITOR, 1 . someone who has successfully applied Scn from a book to help someone else and who has received a Hubbard Book Auditor certificate for doing so. (Scn AD) 2 . someone who has studied books on Scn and listens to other people to make them better. (Abil 155)

BOOK ONE CLEAR, Mest Clear. (Abil 87) See also MEST CLEAR. BOOK ONE OF DIANETICS, Dianetics: The Modern Science of Mental Health. (HCO PL 25 Jan 57)

BOOK ONE OF SCIENTOLOGY, Scientology: The Fundamentals of Thought. (HCO PL 25 Jan 57) BOREDOM, 1 . boredom is not just not doing anything. Boredom is an eddying back and forth which on its lower harmonic becomes pain and on a lower harmonic becomes agony. (2ACC28B, 5312CM20) 2. boredom is not a state of inaction. It is a state of idle action, vacillating action where penalties are yet in existence, and where they are grave, but a state in which one has decided he can’t really do anything about them. It’s just a high-toned apathy. (PDC 59)

BORROWED FACSIMILES, facsimiles that aren’t yours. That is to say they are borrowed from people or they’re photographed or they’re taken right straight out of other theta beings, just outright stolen; we call it borrowing. (5207CM24B)

BOTTOM TERMINAL, the terminal farthest from present time. (SH Spec 306, 6309C11)

BOUNCER, 1 . an engram which contains the species of phrase, “can’t stay here,” “Get out!” and other phrases which will not permit the preclear to remain in its vicinity but returns him to present time. (DTOT, p. 129) 2 . the preclear may be in an engram and yet be bounced into present time. This creates a situation in which the preclear seems to be in present time but is actually under considerable tension being held in an engram. (SOS, p. 106) B P , bonus package. (HCOB 23 Nov 62) B . P . , b a s i c p e r s o n a l i t y . The attention units called basic personality. (DMSMH, p. 124) BPC, by-passed charge. (HCOB 23 Aug 65) B P I , designation on HCO Policy Letters and HCO Bulletins indicates dissemination and restriction as follows: Broad Public Issue. Give to HCOs of all types, all staff of central organizations, field Auditors, put in magazines, do what you like with it. (HCO PL 22 May 59) BPL, Board Policy Letter. (BPL 14 Jan 74R I) BRACKET, 1 . the standard bracket is a five-way bracket. The general form of this is as follows: you . . . terminal; terminal . . . you; terminal . . . another; another . . . terminal; terminal . . . terminal. (HCOB 30 Apr 61) 2 . the word bracket is taken from the artillery, meaning to enclose with a salvo of fire. A bracket is run as follows: first one gets the concept as happening to the preclear. Then one gets the concept of the preclear making it happen (or thinking or saying it) to another. Then one gets the concept as being directed by another at others. (Scn 8-80, p. 40) 3 . with these three things: the thetan trying to put up mock-ups of his own which persist; trying to divert the mock-ups of others; and trying to observe what others are doing to others; we have what we call a bracket in Scn. (PAB 11) 4 . the individual does it himself, somebody else does it, others do it, or the individual does it to somebody else, or somebody does it to him or others do it to others. (PDC 31)

BRAIN, 1 . another part of the nervous system which receives and sends impulses to the body parts. (SPB) 2 . a neuro-shock absorber. It has very little to do with thinking. (SH Spec 75, 6608C16) 3 . a very mechanical rattletrap sort of a switchboard that’s been thrown together by you in order to translate thought into action and to coordinate energy. (5203CM03B)

BREAK-ENGRAM, 1 . a late engram which crosses chains of engrams would be a “cross engram.” If such an engram resulted in a loss of sanity it would be called a “break-engram.” (DMSMH, p. 144) 2 . the secondary engram after the receipt of which the individual experienced a lowering of general tone to 2 .5 or below and became therefore unable to cope with his environment. (DTOT Gloss)

BREAKING A CASE, Slang. meaning that one breaks the hold of the preclear on a non-survival facsimile, never breaking the preclear or his spirit, but breaking what is breaking the preclear. (NFP Gloss) B R I D G E , T H E , 1 . t h e r o u t e t o C l e a r , t h e b r i d g e , which we call the Classification, Gradation and Awareness Chart. (Aud 107 ASNO) 2 . a term originating in early Dn days to symbolize travel from unknowingness to revelation. (Aud 72 ASNO) BROKEN, Slang. used in the wise of “breaking a case,” meaning that one breaks the hold of the preclear on a non-survival facsimile. Used in greater or lesser magnitude such as “breaking a circuit” or “breaking into a chain” or “breaking a computation.” Never breaking the preclear or his spirit, but breaking what’s breaking the preclear. (NFP Gloss)

BROKEN DRAMATIZATION, where the individual has been prevented from carrying out the commands of the engram which is restimulated by present time environmental perceptions. (SOS, Bk. 2, p. 118)

BROKEN DRAMATIZATION LOCKS, locks in which the chief factor is that the individual has been prevented from completing the dramatization of a restimulated engram. These are most abundant at the 1 .5 level. (SOS Gloss) B . S . , Beginning Scientologist. (HCOB 23 Aug 65) B . Scn., Bachelor of Scientology. (HCOB 23 Aug 65) B . T . , before time. (5203CMlOA) B T B , Board Technical Bulletin. (BPL 14 Jan 74R I)

BUBBLE GUM INCIDENT, 1 . an incident on the track where you are hit with motion and finally develop an obsession about motion. (I wish you to carefully note these very technical terms like bubble gum.) (5206CM23A) 2 . the first incident on the track that has any words in it and is usually the last incident on the track of any magnitude that has any words in it for millions of years afterward. It sits there all by itself. It’s a verbal implant, a thought implant. (5206CM25B) BUDDHA, simply one who has attained bodhi. There have been many Buddhas and there are expected to be many more. (PAB 32) BUGGED, the word bugged is slang for snarled up or halted. (HCO PL 29 Feb 72 II) BULL-BAITING, in coaching certain drills, the coach attempts to find certain actions, words, phrases, mannerisms or subjects that cause the student doing the drill to become distracted from the drill by reacting to the coach. As a bullfighter attempts to attract the bull’s attention and control the bull, so does the coach attempt to attract and control the student’s attention, however the coach flunks the student whenever he succeeds in distracting the student from the drill and then repeats the action until it no longer has any effect on the student. Taken from a Spanish and English sport of “baiting” which means “to set dogs upon a chained bull,” but mainly “to attack or torment especially with persistent insult, criticism or ridicule.” Also “to tease.” (LRH Def. Notes) BUREAU 5, (Continental Liaison Office) Bureau 5 covers the standard functions done in Scientology Church Tech and Qual Divisions. (SO ED 96 Int)

BUTTERED ALL OVER THE UNIVERSE, 1 . a preclear who does not know where he is. The preclear has used remote viewpoints, and has left remote viewpoints located all over everywhere to such a degree that the preclear thinks he is anyplace rather than where he is. (Dn 55!, pp. 145-146) 2 . in his failures to control the individual withdraws from things he has attempted to control but leaves himself connected with them in terms of “dead energy.” Thus we get the manifestation of b u t t e r e d a l l o v e r t h e u n i v e r s e . (COHA, p. 123) 3 . Colloquial; a thetan unknowingly in contact with a large part of a universe. (COHA, p. 74) 4 . the lower harmonic of exteriorization, which is: “I don’t want to be there and I’ve backed out in spite of myself.” (5411C29) 5 . the super reach case. He isn’t withdrawing, he’s reaching, compulsively and he can’t stop himself. (2ACC-29A, 5312C M20)

BUTTON(S), 1 . items, words, phrases, subjects or areas that cause response or reaction in an individual by the words or actions of other people, and which cause him discomfort, embarrassment, or upset, or make him laugh uncontrollably. (Scn AD) 2 . things in particular that each human being finds aberrative and has in common. (HFP, p. 127) 3 . restimulators, words, voice tones, music, whatever they are—things which are filed in the reactive mind bank as parts of engrams. (DMSMH, p. 74) 4 . (suppress button, invalidate button, etc.), it is called a button because when you push it (say it) you can get a meter reaction. (HCOB 29 Jan 70)

BUTTON CHART, chart of attitudes toward life. This might be called a “button chart” for it contains the major difficulties people have. (HFP, p. 38)

BY-PASS CIRCUITS, see DEMON CIRCUITS. BY-PASSED CHARGE, 1 . mental energy or mass that has been restimulated in some way in an individual, and that is either partially or wholly unknown to that individual and so is capable of affecting him adversely. (Scn AD) 2 . when one gets a lock, a lower earlier incident restimulates. That is BPC. It isn’t the auditor by-passing it. One handled later charge that restimulated earlier charge. That is BPC (tech of ‘62), and that is all that the term means. (HCOB 10 Jun 72 I) 3 . reactive charge that has been by-passed (restimulated but overlooked by both pc and auditor). (BCR, p. 21) Abbr. BPC. BY-PASSED CHARGE ASSESSMENT, 1 . auditing by list to help the preclear find by-passed charge. The moment the correct by-passed charge is found the preclear feels much better. (Scn AD) 2 . a B P C a s s e s s m e n t is actual auditing (Level III). Here one cleans each smallest read of a question (but not cleaning cleans), before going onto the next question, handling originations by the pc and acknowledging. One never does this with an ARC broken pc. With an ARC break one just ploughs on looking for a big read and indicates it to pc. (BCR, p. 41) 3 . a by-passed charge assessment is auditing because you clean every read of the needle on the list being assessed. The pc is acked, the pc is permitted to itsa and give his opinions. But you never do a by-passed charge assessment on an ARC broken pc. These two different activities (by-passed charge assessment and ARC break assessment) unfortunately have the word assessment in common and they use the same lists, therefore some students confuse them. (HCOB 7 Sept 64 II) BY-PASSED ITEM, when a list has been made and includes a reliable item and that reliable item was not used to find an item in opposition to it, the item which was not so found is called a by-passed item. (HCOB 17 Nov 62)

CALIBRATION, finding and marking the correct positions on the tone arm dial so that TA 2 and TA 3 positions are known precisely by the auditor at start of session. (EMD, p. 16A)

CALL-BACK, a type of action phrase which would, in present time, cause the preclear to move back to another position in space, and when contained in an engram would pull the preclear down from present time into the engram. (SOS, p. 105)

CAL-MAG FORMULA, working on this in 1973, for other uses than drug reactions, I found the means of getting calcium into solution in the body along with magnesium so that the results of both could be achieved. (HCOB 5 Nov 74)

CANCELLER, 1 . in Dn processing we used to use what was called a “canceller.” At the beginning of the session, the preclear was told that anything which had been said to him would be cancelled when the word cancelled was uttered at the end of the session. This canceller is no longer employed, not because it was not useful but because lock scanning provides the means of scanning off all the auditing. This is a far more effective and positive mechanism than the canceller. (SOS, Bk. 2, pp. 228-229) 2 . a contract with the patient that whatever the auditor says will not become literally interpreted by the patient or used by him in any way. It prevents accidental positive suggestion. (DMSMH, p. 200)

CANNED LIST, Slang. a pre-prepared and issued list. (7204C07 SO I) C A N S , electrodes for the E-meter. Steel soup or vegetable cans, unpainted, tops cleanly removed, label and glue washed off, tin plated or not, have been standard for many years. It is with these that calibration has been done. (HCOB 14 Jul 70) CAN’T HAVE, 1 . it means just that—a depriving of substance or action or things. (HCO PL 12 May 72) 2 . denial of something to someone else. (BTB 22 Oct 72) 3 . a moment of pain or unconsciousness is a moment of can’t have. If, at a certain moment, an individual couldn’t have the environment, couldn’t have the circumstances he was undergoing then it is a certainty that he’ll pile up an engram right at that spot in time. (Abil 14) C A S , Church of American Science. (PAB 74) CASE, the whole sum of past by-passed charge. (HCOB 19 Aug 63)

CASE ANALYSIS, 1 . the determination of where pc’s attention (at current state of case) is fixed on the track and restoring pc’s determinism over those places. (HCOB 28 Feb 59) 2 . the steps for case analysis are (1) discover what the pc is sitting in, (2) get the lies off, (3) locate and indicate the charge. (HCOB 14 Dec 63)

CASE CRACKING SECTION, a s e c t i o n in the Dept. of Review in the Qualifications Division of a Scientology Church. This s e c t i o n audits cases (students or HGC pcs or other pcs in difficulty such as field auditor rejects) to a result. (HCO PL 24 Apr 65) CASE V, 1 . the definition of a c a s e V is no mock-ups, only blackness. (Scn 8- 8008, p. 120) [For a complete list of the eight levels of case of SOP 8-C, see STATES OF CASE SCALE.]

CASE GAIN, 1 . the improvements and resurgences a person experiences from auditing. (Scn AD) 2 . any case betterment according to the pc. (Abil 155) CASE HISTORIES, reports on preclears’ individual records. (FOT, p. 15)


CASE PROGRESS SHEET, a sheet which details the levels of processing and training the pc has achieved while moving up the grade chart. It also lists incidental rundowns and setup actions the pc has had. The s h e e t gives at a glance the pc’s progress to OT. (BTB 3 Nov 72R)

CASE, STATES OF, see STATE OF CASE SCALE. CASE SUPERVISOR, 1 . that person in a Scientology Church who gives instructions regarding, and s u p e r v i s e s the auditing of preclears. The abbreviation C/S can refer to the Case Supervisor or to the written instructions of a case supervisor depending on context. (BTB 12 Apr 72R) 2 . the C/S is the case supervisor. He has to be an accomplished and properly certified auditor and a person trained additionally to supervise cases. The C/S is the auditor’s “handler.” He tells the auditor what to do, corrects his tech, keeps the lines straight and keeps the auditor calm and willing and winning. The C/S is the pc’s case director. His actions are donefor the pc. (Dn Today, Bk. 3, p. 545) Abbr. C/S. See also C/S.

CATATONIA, 1 . a psychiatric name for withdrawn totally. (HCOB 24 Nov 65) 2 . catatonia means the person is lying still in apathy unmovingly and not reaching anything. (SH Spec 303, 6309C05)

CAUSATION, imposing time and space upon objects, people, self, events and individuals. (Scn 8-80, p. 44)

CAUSE, 1 . c a u s e could be defined as emanation. It could be defined also, for purposes of communication, as source-point. (FOT, p. 77) 2 . a potential source of flow. (COHA, p. 258) 3 . is simply the point of emanation of the communication. Cause in our dictionary here means only “source point.” (Dn 55 .1, p. 70) “CAVE IN,” (noun) “CAVED IN” (adjective), mental and/or physical collapse to the extent that the individual cannot function causatively . The individual is quite effect . A U . S . Western term which symbolized mental or physical collapse as like being at the bottom of a mine shaft or in a tunnel when the supports collapsed and left the person under tons of debris. (LRH Def. Notes)

C C , Clearing Course. (HCO PL 6 Sept 72 II)

CCHs, 1 . a highly workable set of processes starting with c o n t r o l , going to communication and leading to havingness in that order. The CCHs are auditing specifically aimed at and using all the parts of the two way comm formula. (BTB 12 Sept 63) 2 . several associated processes which bring a person into better control of his body and surroundings, put him into better communication with his surroundings and other people, and increase his ability to h a v e things for himself. They bring him into the present, away from his past problems. (Scn AD) 3 . actually, control, communication and havingness. When you apply c o n t r o l , y o u o b t a i n communication which gives the preclear havingness. And it is a method of entrance on cases which is rather infallible. (SH Spec 9, 6106C07) CCH-O, the sum of CCH-O is find the auditor, find the auditing room, find the pc, knock out any existing PT problem, establish goals, clear help, get agreement on session length and get up to the first real auditing command. CCH-O isn’t necessarily run in that order and this isn’t necessarily all of CCH-O, but if any of these are seriously scamped, the session will somewhere get into trouble. (SCP, p. 8) CCH OB, clear help in brackets with a meter, running meter toward a freer needle. (PAB 138)

CDEI, curiosity, desire, enforcement, inhibition. (BTB 1 Dec 71RB II) CDEINR, curious, desired, enforced, inhibited, no, refused. (BTB 1 Dec 71RB II) CELL, 1 . the virus and cell are matter and energy animated and motivated in space and time by theta. (Scn 0-8, p. 75) 2 . a unit of life which is seeking to survive and only to survive. (DMSMH, p. 50) CEN-O, designation on HCO Policy Letters and HCO Bulletins indicates dissemination and restriction as follows: to go to all staff of Central Organizations only plus HCO Area Sec, HCO Cont, HCO WW. (HCO PL 22 May 59) CEN-O-CON, designation on HCO Policy Letters and HCO Bulletins indicates dissemination and restriction as follows: to go to Association Secretaries or Organization Secretaries of Central Organizations only, not to staff; also to HCO Area Sec, HCO C o n t , HCO WW. (HCO PL 22 May 59) 2 . modifies HCO PL 22 May 59, HCO Policy Letters which are marked CenOCon may be issued to all staff including HASI Personnel. (HCO PL 25 Jun 59)

CENT, central. (BPL 5 Nov 72RA)

CENTRAL ORG (ORGANIZATION), Church of Scientology (Class IV). (HCO PL 6 Feb 66)

CERT, see CERTIFICATE. CERTAINTY, 1. the degree of willingness to accept the awareness of an is-ness. (SH Spec 84, 6612C13) 2 . knowledge itself is certainty; knowledge is not data. Knowingness is certainty. Sanity is certainty, providing only that that certainty does not fall beyond the conviction of another when he views it. To obtain a certainty one must be able to observe. (COHA, p. 187) 3 . knowingness—knowing one knows—a state of beingness. (PAB 29) 4 . measurement of the effort and locations and distances necessary to make two points coincide at a certain instant in time. And that is really a low level certainty. That is certainty in terms of motion. (5311CM17A) 5 . clarity of observation. (COHA, p. 190)

CERTAINTY PROCESSING, the processing of certainties. The anatomy of maybe consists of uncertainties and is resolved by the p r o c e s s i u g o f certainties. (Scn 8-8008, p. 126) CERTIFICATE, an award given by the Hubbard Communications Office to designate study and practice performed and skill attained. It is not a degree as it signalizes competence whereas degrees ordinarily symbolize merely time spent in theoretical study and impart no index of skill. (Aud 2 UK) Abbr. Cert.

CERTIFICATION COURSE, y o u t e a c h t h e s t u d e n t t h e t h e o r y i n t h e certification course and the drills and key processes for the grade in the classification course. (HCOB 22 Sept 65)

CERTIFICATION EXAM, this is a written test taken from the HCOBs, tapes, policy letters of the theory material the student studies. (FO 1685) CHAIN, 1 . a series of recordings of similar experiences. A chain has engrams, secondaries and locks. (HCOB 23 Apr 69) 2 . incidents of similar nature strung out in time. (SH Spec 70, 6607C21) 3 . a series of incidents of similar nature or similar subject matter. (HCOB 1 Mar 62)

CHAIN OF INCIDENTS, 1 . when one speaks of a chain of incidents, one means usually a chain of locks or a chain of engrams or a chain of secondaries which have similar content. (SOS, Bk. 2, p. 194) 2 . a whole adventure or activity related by the same subject, general location or people, understood to take place in a long time period, weeks, months, years or even billions or trillions of years. (HCOB 15 May 63) See also CHAIN. CHANGE, 1 . a shift of location in space. (SH Spec 4, 6105C26) 2 . essentially the redirection of energy. When change is too rapid or too slow both beingness and havingness suffer. (Scn 8-8008, p. 103)

CHANGE OF CHARACTERISTIC, 1 . one of the ten main needle actions of an E-meter. A change of characteristic occurs when we hit on something in the preclear’s bank. It occurs only when and each time we ask that exact question. As the question or item alone changes the needle pattern, we must assume that that is it and we use it. It is not much used but must be known. (EME, pp. 15-16) 2 . the meter on a certain question has its needle shift into a different action than it was in. It resumes its old action when you no longer ask the question. (SH Spec 1, 6105C07)

CHANGE OF SPACE PROCESSING, the object of c h a n g e o f s p a c e processing is to get all areas into present time. Originally it could be conceived that only the place where the preclear is is in present time, that all other places are in past time to the degree that they are far from the preclear. Change of space processing is done in this fashion: “Be at the place where you entered the mest universe,” “Be at the center of this room,” “Be at the place where you entered the mest universe,” “Center of this room,” “Entrance point,” “Room” and so forth until the entrance point is in present time. The preclear should be made to run change of space on any area until that area is in present time. (COHA, p. 38) CHANGE OF VIEWPOINT, the primary requisite of the viewpoint is that it has position relative to points. A change of viewpoint necessitates a change of positions rather than a change of idea. The change of position is primary; the change of idea is secondary. (PAB 8)

CHANGE PROCESSES, 1 . resistance to change prevents the pc from having, and as the ideas of change are sorted out the pc has increased havingness. (HCOB 27 Apr 61) 2 . if a pc is bad off on change (which includes about eighty per cent of the pcs you get), he cannot run another auditing command cleanly as he never really runs the command but runs something else. Therefore the only thing that can be run is a change process and it must be run until motion is removed from the tone arm. There are many, many versions of change. To get the best result, adapt a process to the pc. (HCOB 27 Apr 61)

CHAOS, 1 . all points in motion—no points fixed. (5410CM07) 2 . there’s nothing traveling in one direction and there’s nothing in alignment. (PDC 59)

CHAOS MERCHANT, the slave master, the fellow who’s trying to hold everybody down, the fellow who’s trying to keep everybody shook up one way or the other and so he can’t ever get up again, the fellow who makes his money and his daily bread out of how terrible everything is. (SH Spec 328, 6312C10) See also MERCHANTS OF CHAOS.

CHARGE, 1 . harmful energy or force accumulated and stored within the reactive mind, resulting from the conflicts and unpleasant experiences that a person has had. Auditing discharges this charge so that it is no longer there to affect the individual. (Scn AD) 2 . the electrical impulse on the case that activates the meter. (HCOB 27 May 70) 3 . stored energy or stored recreatable potentials of energy. (HCOB 8 Jun 63) 4 . the stored quantities of energy in the time track. It is the sole thing that is being relieved or removed by the auditor from the time track. (HCOB 13 Apr 64, Scn VIPart One Tone Arm Action) 5 . emotional charge or energy. (NSOL, p. 29) 6 . the accumulation of entheta in locks and secondaries which charges up the engrams and gives them their force to aberrate. (SOS Gloss) 7 . by charge is meant anger, fear, grief, or apathy contained as misemotion in the case. (SOS, p. 108) See also CHRONIC CHARGE. C H A R G E U P , c h a r g e that is restimulated but not released causes the case to “charge up” in that charge already on the time track is triggered but is not yet viewed by the pc. (HCOB 8 Jun 63)

CHARGED UP, the key-in and additional locks begin to give the engram more and more entheta, and it becomes more and more powerful in its effect upon the individual. It has to be, in short, charged up in order to affect the individual. (SOS, Bk. 2, p. 137)

CHART OF ATTITUDES, 1. a chart on which are plotted with the numerical values of the emotional tone scale the gradient attitudes that fall between the highest and lowest states of consideration about life. Example: top-CAUSE; bottom-FULL EFFECT. (PXL Gloss) 2 . a chart of attitudes toward life. This might be called a “button chart” for it contains the major difficulties people have. It is also a self-evaluation chart. You can find a level on it where you agree and that is your level of reaction toward life. (HFP, p. 38) CHC, Clean Hands Congress. (HCOB 29 Sept 66) CHECKLIST, a list of actions or inspections to ready an activity or machinery or object for use or estimate the needful repairs or corrections. This is erroneously sometimes called a “check-sheet” but that word is reserved for study steps. (HCOB 19 Jun 71 III)

CHECKOUT, the action of verifying a student’s knowledge of an item given on a check-sheet. (HCOB 19 Jun 71 III)

CHECKSHEET, a list of materials, often divided into sections, that give the theory and practical steps which, when completed, give one a study completion. The items are selected to add up to the required knowledge of the subject. They are arranged in the sequence necessary to a gradient of increasing knowledge on the subject. After each item there is a place for the initial of the student or the person checking the student out. When the check-sheet is fully initialed, it is complete, meaning the student may now take an exam and be granted the award for completion. Some check-sheets are required to be gone through twice before completion is granted. (HCOB 19 Jun 71 III) Abbr. c/sheet or ch. sheet or √sht.

CHECKSHEET MATERIAL, the policy letters, bulletins, tapes, mimeo issues, any reference book or any books mentioned on the check-sheet. (HCO PL 16 Mar 71)

CHEMICAL RELEASE, drugs (or alcohol) give an enforced moment or period of r e l e a s e . It is surrounded in mass. They are deadly because they give the sensation of release while actually pulling in mass. (HCOB 23 Sept 68)

CHEW AROUND, tendency on the part of preclears to change the direction or position of the energy masses which they are handling, and when this is the case there is a certain loss of havingness by reason of heat and friction. (PAB 52)

CHEW ENERGY, Slang. just “chewing the energy around” doesn’t make it persist, but, with all this chewing he isn’t as-ising anything. All he is doing is moving mass “A” to position “B.” Anybody who is doing this gets no cognition out of it at all. He is waiting for that piece of energy to tell him something, and this tells you a great deal about the preclear who couldn’t run an engram. He was waiting for the MEST to say something. (PAB 56) CHKSHT, check-sheet. (BPL 5 Nov 72RA)

CHRONIC CHARGE, the impulse to withdraw from that which can’t be withdrawn from or to approach that which can’t be approached, and this, like a two pole battery, generates current. This constantly generated current is chronic charge. (HCOB 15 May 63)

CHRONIC ENGRAM, an engram which has been more or less continuously restimulated so that it has become an apparent portion of the individual. (DTOT, p. 45)

CHRONIC HIGH TA, one which is found high two sessions running (consecutive). “High” means around 4 .0 or above. But 3 .8 can also be called “high” if it occurs at session beginning too often. (HCOB 13 Feb 70) See also HIGH TA.

CHRONIC INSANITY, 1 . an acute insanity with the time factor lengthily extended. (DASF) 2 . one which, having appeared, does not subside but holds the individual in an abnormal state. (DASF)

CHRONIC SOMATIC, 1 . a stuck moment on a time track, which is the stable datum of a prior confusion. (SH Spec 61, 6110C03) 2 . a n o b v i o u s demonstration of a help-failure cycle where the individual has used an effort to help and has failed and has gotten a s o m a t i c back. (5112CM30A) 3 . psychosomatic illness, as it is called in the field of medicine, is named in Dn a chronic somatic, since it is not an illness, and cannot be diagnosed as such but is only some former pain which is in re-stimulation. (SOS, p. xv) 4 . a psychosomatic illness, since it is discovered that psychosomatic illness is only the restimulated somatic of some engram and goes away when the engram is contacted and reduced or erased. (SOS, p. 26) 5 . simply an area of randomity, a theta facsimile of past pain, effort, counter-effort, that has swamped the individual. It throws him all out of whack. As far as atoms and molecules are concerned, he suffers pain. (5109CM24B) C H U G , a needle reaction in which the needle in falling appears to encounter, penetrate and surge beyond a “skin.” (HCOB 13 Apr 64, Scn VIPart One Glossary of Terms)

CIRCUIT, 1 . a part of an individual’s bank that behaves as though it were someone or something separate from him and that either talks to him or goes into action of its own accord, and may even, if severe enough, take control of him while it operates. A tune that keeps going around in someone’s head is an example of a circuit. (NOTL Gloss) 2 . just an identity that is so dominant that it balls up a whole section of the whole track. It takes a large section of the whole track and bundles it all up in a black ball and it’s full of pictures. (SH Spec 105, 6201C25) 3 . a circuit has no livingness in it. It is simply a motivated mass. (SH Spec 21, 6106C27) 4 . matter, energy, space and time at a mental level, enclosing thought. (6009C13) 5 . a mechanism which becomes an identity in itself, with its own “I” which takes a piece of the analyzer, walls it off with the charge, and thereafter dictates to the preclear. In olden times, these were called demons. (SOS, Bk. 2, p. 202) 6 . divisions of your own mind that seem to make up other personalities and these other personalities affect you and argue with you and so forth. (5203CM05D)

CIRCUIT CASES, the auditor will encounter many cases which resolve very rapidly. These account for fully 50% of the people who come to him, but he will also encounter many people whose cases are resistive and he will encounter a small handful who wouldn’t let anything happen if the auditor used a shotgun on them. These are classified as “circuit cases.” (PAB 19)

CIRCUITRY, 1 . consists of “you” phrases. They are the phrases addressed from an exterior “I” to “you.” “I have to tell you” is still a “you” addressing the “I.” These phrases are received from persons who seek to nullify the independence of judgment of others. (NOTL, p. 49) 2. circuitry is an escape from knowing. It is knowingness in a substitute for lack of knowing. When a thetan escapes from knowing, he sets up a circuit. (SH Spec 68, 6110C18)

CLASS, 1 . refers to the level of classification of an auditor. (BTB 12 Apr 72) 2 . a technical certificate in Scn goes by classes on the gradation chart. (HCO PL 13 Mar 66) Abbr. Cl. CLASS 0, see HRS. CLASS I, see HTS. CLASS II, see HCA. CLASS III, see HPA. CLASS IV, see HAA. CLASS V, see HVA. CLASS VI, see HSS. CLASS VII, see HGA. CLASS VIII, see HSTS. CLASS VIII C/S-6, list useful in running out past bad auditing. (HCOB 28 Mar 74) C L A S S V I I I D R U G R U N D O W N , one of the steps in a complete drug r u n d o w n . It consists of listing and rehabbing all drugs, 3-way recalls, secondaries, and engrams of taking and giving drugs. (HCOB 31 Aug 74) CLASS IX, Hubbard Advanced Technical Specialist. The Class IX Course is taught at Saint Hill organizations and contains data concerning advanced procedures and developments since Class VIII. (CG&AC 75) C L A S S X , an advanced Scn course available only on Flag. It teaches L-10 OT, an upper level rundown whose basic tech comes from research into increasing OT powers. (CG&AC 75) CLASS XI, an advanced Scn Course, available to Sea Org auditors only and is taught on Flag. It teaches L-11, the New Life Rundown and L-llX, the New Life Expansion Rundown. (CG&AC 75) CLASS XII, an advanced Scn course available to Sea Org auditors only and is taught on Flag. It teaches L-12, the Flag OT executive Rundown. (CG&AC 75)


CLASSIFICATION, 1. classification means that we require certain actions to have been done or conditions to have been attained before an individual is classified on that level and we let him go on. (Aud 107 ASHO) 2 . an award earned by an auditor that entitles him to audit certain levels of processes, and that shows that he has attained the ability and skill to do so by actual test. (Scn AD)

CLASSIFICATION COURSE, the practical drills and student auditing portion of an auditor training course. After completion of the classification course the auditor is classified to that level and may audit pcs professionally on the processes of that level. (PRD Gloss)

CLASSIFICATION EXAM, this is a practical exam. The test consists of a checkout of TR-4, any of the meter drills of the level, and the auditing of a doll on the process or processes of that level with full TRs and admin. (FO 1685)

CLASSIFICATION GRADATION AND AWARENESS CHART, the route to Clear, the Bridge. On the right side of the chart there are various steps called the states of release. The left-hand side of the chart describes the very important steps of training on which one gains the knowledge and abilities necessary to deliver the grades of release to another. It is a guide for the individual from the point where he first becomes dimly aware of a Scientologist or Scn and shows him how and where he should move up in order to make it. Scn contains the entire map for getting the individual through all the various points on this gradation scale and for getting him across the Bridge to a higher state of existence. (Aud 107 ASHO)

CLAY DEMO, abbreviation for clay demonstration. A Scn study technique whereby the student demonstrates definitions, principles, etc. in clay to obtain greater understanding by translating significance into actual mass. (BTB 12 Apr 72R)

CLAY TABLE, a clay table is any platform at which a student, standing or sitting, can work comfortably. The surface must be smooth. A table built of rough timber will serve but the top surface where the work is done should be oil cloth or linoleum. Otherwise the clay sticks to it and it cannot be cleaned and will soon lead to an inability to see clearly what is being done because it is stained with clay leavings. (HCOB 10 Dec 70 I)

CLAY TABLE CLEARING, 1 . a process of clearing words and symbols. (HCOB 9 Sept 64) 2 . as one Scn remedy for increased IQ and destimulation, clay table clearing is audited by an auditor in a session. The entire effort by the auditor in a session of clay table clearing is to help the pc regain confidence in being able to achieve things by removing the misunderstandings which have prevented that achievement. (HCOB 18 Aug 64)

CLAY TABLE HEALING, gets the pc to name the condition the pc requires to be handled and gets the pc to represent this in clay. The whole process is flat when the condition has vanished. Clay table healing is a very precise series of actions. (HCOB 9 Sept 64) [The above is a very brief summary only. The full series of steps can be found in the referenced HCOB.l Abbr. CTH.

CLAY TABLE IQ PROCESSING, 1 . trace back (with no meter) what word or term the pc failed to grasp in the subject chosen. Get the pc to make up the mass represented by the word in clay and any related masses. Get them all labeled and explained. I.Q. (intelligence quotient or the relative brightness of the individual) can be rocketed out of sight with HGC use of a clay table. (HCOB 17 Aug 64) 2 . the original issue of “Clay Table Clearing” was called “Clay Table I.Q. Processing.” (HCOB 27 Sept 64)

CLAY TABLE PROCESSING, 1. the clay table presents us with a new series of processes. The preclear is made to make in clay and labels whatever he or she is currently worried about or hasn’t understood in life. The essence of clay table processing is to get the pc to work it out. In auditing the pc tells the auditor. This is still true in clay table processing. (HCOB 17 Aug 64) 2 . the pc handles the mass. The auditor does not suggest subjects or colors or forms. The auditor just finds out what should be made and tells the pc to do it in clay and labels. And keeps calling for related objects to be done in clay. (HCOB 17 Aug 64)

CLAY TABLE TRACK ANALYSIS, a training activity for Class VI. (HCOB 18 Aug 64)

CLAY TABLE TRAINING, the student is given a word or auditing action or situation to demonstrate. He then does this in clay. (HCOB 11 Oct 67) CLEAN HANDS, in order for an auditor who is regarded as a security risk to be considered to have clean hands, it is necessary for him to receive a Clean Hands Clearance Check from HCO. If on completion there are questions which are alive or if there are any missed or partial withholds the person must go back to the HGC to have them cleaned up before he is considered to have clean hands. If no questions are alive and there are no missed or partial withholds, then the person will be awarded a Clean Hands seal on his certificate and will be considered to be in good standing with HCO. (HCO PL 27 Feb 62)

CLEANING A CLEAN, 1 . attempting to clean up or deal with something that has already been cleaned up or dealt with or that wasn’t troublesome to the person in the first place. (Scn AD) 2 . there is nothing there yet the auditor tries to get it and the pc ARC breaks. This is cleaning a clean with an E-meter. (HCO PL 16 Apr 65) 3 . this is the same as asking a pc for something that isn’t there and develops a “withhold of nothing.” (HCOB 13 Apr 64, Scn VI Part One Tone Arm Action)

CLEAN NEEDLE, 1 . a needle that acts when the auditor speaks and does nothing the rest of the time. (EMD, p. 42) 2 . it is a total uniform speed. There is not the faintest tick in it. There is not the faintest speed-up. There is nothing. It is just like molasses pouring out of the barrel—and there it is, and that’s a clean needle. (SH Spec 224, 6212C13) 3 . one which flows, producing no pattern or erratic motions of the smallest kind with the auditor sitting looking at it and doing nothing. A clean needle is not just something that doesn’t react to a particular question. It’s a lovely slow flow, usually a rise, most beautifully expressed on a Mark V at 64 sensitivity. (HCOB 30 Dec 62)

CLEAR, n. 1 . a thetan who can be at cause knowingly and at will over mental matter, energy, space and time as regards the first dynamic (survival for self). The state of Clear is above the release grades (all of which are requisite to clearing) and is attained by completion of the Clearing Course at an Advanced Organization. (ScnAD) 2 . a C l e a r , in an absolute sense, would be someone who could confront anything and everything in the past, present and future. (Abil Mag 56) 3 . a Clear is not an all-knowing being. A Clear is somebody who has lost the mass, energy, space and time connected with the thing called mind . ( SH Spec 80, 6609C08) 4 . a picture is completely unnecessary for any kind of a recall at all which is probably about the only change there has been from the definition of a Book One Clear. (SH Spec 59, 6504C27) 5 . a Clear has no vicious reactive mind and operates at total mental capacity just like the first book (DMSMH) said. In fact every early definition of Clear is found to be correct. (HCOB 2 Apr 65) 6 . the name of a button on an adding machine. When you push it, all the hidden answers in the machine c l e a r and the machine can be used for a proper computation. So long as the button is not pressed the machine adds all old answers to all new efforts to compute and wrong answers result. Really, that’s all a Clear is. Clears are beings who have been cleared of wrong answers or useless answers which keep them from living or thinking. (Aud 4 UK) 7 . a Clear has risen from the analogy between the mind and the computing machine. Before a computer can be used to solve a problem, it must be cleared of old problems, of old data and conclusions. Otherwise, it will add all the old conclusions into the new one and produce an invalid answer. Processing clears more and more of these problems from the computer. The completely cleared individual would have all his self-determinism in present time and would be completely self-determined. (Abil 114A) 8 . a thetan cleared of enforced and unwanted behavior patterns and discomforts. (HCOB 8 May 63) 9 . simply an awareness of awareness unit which knows it’s an awareness of awareness unit, can create energy at will, and can handle and control, erase or re-create an analytical mind or reactive mind. (Dn 55 .l pp. 17-18)1 0 . a person who can have or not have at will anything in the universe. (5412CM06) 1 1 . an unaberrated person. He is rational in that he forms the best possible solutions he can on the data he has and from his viewpoint. He obtains the maximum pleasure for the organism, present and future, as well as for the subjects along the other dynamics. The Clear has no engrams which can be restimulated to throw out the correctness of computation by entering hidden and false data in it. (DMSMH, p. 111) 1 2 . one who has become the basic individual through auditing. (DTOT, p. 33) —v. 1 . to clear: to release all the physical pain and painful emotion from the life of an individual. (DMSMH, p. 170)

CLEARED CANNIBAL, the individual without engrams seeks survival along all of the dynamics in accordance with his breadth of understanding. This does not mean that a Zulu who has been cleared of all his engrams would not continue to eat missionaries if he were a cannibal by education; but it does mean that he would be as rational as possible about eating missionaries; further, it would be easier to re-educate him about eating missionaries if he were a Clear. (SOS, p. 110)

CLEARED THETA CLEAR, 1 . a person who is able to create his own universe; or, living in the mest universe is able to create illusions perceivable by others at will, to handle mest universe objects without mechanical means and to have and feel no need of bodies or even the mest universe to keep himself and his friends interested in existence. (Scn 8-8008, p. 114) 2 . next level above theta clear (which is cleared of need to have a body). All of a person’s engrams have been turned into conceptual experience. He is clear all the way along the track. He can really deliver the horsepower. (5206CM26A) 3 . one who has full recall of everything and full ability as a thetan. (Scn 8-80, p. 59)

CLEARING, 1 . a gradient process of finding places where attention is fixed and restoring the ability of the pc to place and remove attention under his own determinism. (HCOB 28 Feb 59) 2 . what is clearing but regaining awareness that one is himself, and regaining confidence. (HCOB 1 Feb 58)

CLEARING COMMANDS, 1 . when running a process newly or whenever the preclear is confused about the meaning of the c o m m a n d s , c l e a r t h e commands with the preclear, using the dictionary if necessary. The auditor reads the commands one at a time to the pc and asks the pc “What does this command mean to you?” (HCOB 14 Nov 65) 2. clear the commands (or questions or list items) by first clearing in turn each word in backwards sequence of the words in the command. (e.g. if command is “Do fish swim?” clear “swim” then “fish” then “do.”) This prevents the pc starting to run the process by himself while you are still clearing the words. (BTB 2 May 72R)

CLEAR MOCKERY, a condition in which the thetan thinks of himself as dead. If you just ask him, “How could you help me?” although he is sitting here at 3 on the dial, there is no action on the needle. The needle is stiff. He is all machine motivated. You’ll find in his normal course of endeavor he has all kinds of bad luck. He doesn’t quite groove in but basically this: he doesn’t believe anything can be done. No help, no doingness. (SH Spec 1, 6105C07)

CLEAR OT, our definition of an operating thetan is that of a Clear Operating Thetan. This is a proofed-up being who no longer has a bank, and who has experience. This is a completely stable state—a being who won’t hit the banana peel. (SH Spec 82, 6611C29)

CLEAR READ, when a preclear is Clear he may occasionally get some tone arm motion due to purely body electronics but in the main reads at male or female on the tone arm (3 or 2) according to his or her sex. (EME, p. 11)

CLEAR THINKING, a Clear does not have any “mental voices.” He does not think vocally. He thinks without articulation of his thoughts and his thoughts are not in voice terms. He thinks at such speed that the word stream of consciousness would be left at the post. (DMSMH, p. 87)

CLOSED TERMINALS, w h e n o n e b e g i n s t o i d e n t i f y , o n e h a s “closed terminals” too closely, and believes one terminal is another terminal. (PAB 63) See also SNAPPING TERMINALS.

CLOSURE MECHANISM (of problems), problems c l o s e in on one as an actual mental mass when one invents solutions for them. The solution is not the problem so does not as-is or erase. When one invents problems or conceives of problems as simply problems, the mental mass moves away from him in space. This can be demonstrated to a pc (who can see mental mass) by having him invent some solutions. A mental mass will move in on him. But when he invents problems the mental mass moves away. See HCOB 11 June 57, page 6 . In considerable use in 1955 in London. (LRH Def. Notes)

COACH, to train intensively by instruction, demonstration and practice. In training drills, one twin is made the coach and the other the student. The coach in his coaching actions, coaches the student to achieve the purpose of the drill. He coaches with reality and intention following exactly the materials pertaining to the drill to get the student through it. When this is achieved the roles are then reversed—the student becoming the coach and the coach becoming the student. (HCOB 19 Jun 71 III)

CO-AUDIT, n. a team of any two people who are helping each other reach a better life with Scn processing. (Abil 155) CO-AUDITING, is an abbreviation for cooperative auditing. It means a team of any two people who are helping each other reach a better life with Scn processing. (Aud 90 UK) CO-AUDITING TEAM, where two people audit each other alternately. There is also the three-way t e a m , in which three people c o – a u d i t . This has the advantage of keeping altitude for each auditor, since in the triangle, none is being processed by anyone he is auditing. (SOS, Bk. 2, pp. 266-267)

CO-AUDITOR, one who audits another co-auditor under supervision and after training at a given level. (Aud 2 UK) CODE, collection of rules (do’s and don’ts). (BTB 30 Sept 71 IV)

CODE OF A SCIENTOLOGIST, the Code of a Scientologist was evolved to safeguard Scientologist in general, and is subscribed to by leading Scientologists. (CONA, p. 7)

CODE OF HONOR, 1 . the ethical code of Scn; the code one uses, not because he has to, but because he can afford such a luxury. (COHA Gloss) 2. the Code of H o n o r clearly states conditions of acceptable comradeship amongst those fighting on one side against something which they conceive should be remedied. Anyone practicing the Code of Honor would maintain a good opinion of his fellows, a much more important thing, than having one’s fellows maintain a good opinion of one. (PAB 40)

COFFEE GRINDER, an alternate name for Facsimile One. (HOM, p. 64) See FACSIMILE ONE. COF, designation on HCO Policy Letters and HCO Bulletins indicates dissemination and restriction as follows: HCO City Offices and all their field Auditors, HCO Franchises, central organizations, HCO Area, continental and HCO WW. (HCO PL 22 May 59)

COFFEE SHOP AUDITING, 1 . out of session auditing of someone. (HCOB 20 Apr 72 II) 2 . meter-less fool-around, often by students, stirring up cases. (HCOB 8 Mar 71) COFFIN CASE, a preclear who lies in the position of a dead man, with arms folded. This is a grief engram having to do with the death of some loved one, and with the preclear in the valence of the loved one. (SOS, p. 112) See also CORPSE CASE. COG, cognition. (HCOB 23 Aug 65)

COGNITING, as-ising aberration with a realization about life. (HCOB 26 Apr 71 I)

COGNITION, 1 . as-ising aberration with a realization about life. (HCOB 26 Apr 71 I) 2 . a pc origination indicating he has “Come to realize.” It’s a “What do you know, I . . .” statement. (HCOB 14 May 69 II) 3 . something a pc suddenly understands or feels. “Well, what do you know about that?” (HCOB 25 Feb 60) Abbr. Cog. COGNITION SURGE, a release of electrical charge. It goes along with the person having a cognition. (SH Spec 9, 6106C07)

COLD, an extreme stillness. (SH Spec 56, 6109C20)

COLOR-VISIO AND TONE-AUDIO, when a person can imagine in terms of color motion pictures with sound. (Exp Jour, Winter-Spring 50)

COMANOME, 1 . o n c e u p o n a t i m e , e n g r a m s w e r e c a l l e d comanomes. (5009CM23B) 2 . a period of unconsciousness which contained physical pain and apparent antagonism to the survival of the individual. (Exp Jour, Winter-Spring 1950) See ENGRAM.

COMATIC REDUCTION, boil-off was originally and sedately named somatic reduction but such erudition has been outvoted by the fact that it has never been used. (DMSMH, p. 303) See BOIL-OFF.

COMBINATION VALENCE, one which has all the characteristics of the terminal and opp-term. (SH Spec 105, 6201C25)

COMBINED TERMINAL, an item or identity the pc has both been and opposed produces therefore both pain and sensation when it is “late on the track,” which is to say, after the fact of many terminals and opposition terminals. The combination terminal is the closure between terminal and opposition terminal lines which possesses attributes of both and the clarity of neither. It signifies a period toward the end of a game. It is found most commonly when the pc’s case is only shallowly entered. They exist on all cases but are fewer than terminals and opposition terminals. Symbol. COTERM. (HCOB 8 Nov 62)

COME ALIVE, on a second or third assessment items which were at first null or reading poorly will be found to come alive and read well. The pc by being audited has had an increase of ability to confront. The result is that items beyond his reach previously (and did not read well) are now available and can be run easily. (HCOB 29 Apr 69) COMM, communication. (HCOB 23 Aug 65)

COMMAND PHRASES, statements that group, bounce or deny. (HCOB 15 May 63) See ACTION PHRASES.

COMMAND P O S T S , 1 . control centers. (5110CMllB) 2 . epicenters which stand along the nerve channels of the body and are like switchboards. (HOM, p. 25)

COMMAND SOMATIC, a somatic brought from a different part of the time track by some command phrase, such as “My arm hurts.” The preclear may have this somatic while running a prenatal engram although he was only three days conceived in the incident. Command somatics occur where the preclear is out of valence. (SOS Gloss)

COMM COURSE, because the H.A.S. Course is a course about communication it is often called the C o m m C o u r s e . (HCO PL 15 Apr 71R) See H.A.S. COURSE.

COMM CYCLE, communication cycle. (HCOB 23 Aug 65)

COMMENT, a statement or remark aimed only at the student or the room. (HCOB 16 Aug 71 II) COMM LAG, communication lag. (Abil SW) COMM LINE, see COMMUNICATION LINE.

COMMUNICATION, 1 . the consideration and action of impelling an impulse or particle from source point across a distance to receipt point with the intention of bringing into being at the receipt point a duplication and understanding of that which emanated from the source point. (HCOB 5 Apr 73) 2 . the first and most basic definition of any part of communication is that communication or any part thereof is a consideration. As duplication is a consideration, communication is possible to the degree that the preclear can freely make considerations. (COHA, pp. 170-171) 3 . the operation, the action, by which one experiences emotion and by which one agrees. Communication is not only the modus operandi, it is the heart of life and is by thousands of per cent the senior in importance to affinity and reality. (PAB 1) 4 . any ritual by which effects can be produced and perceived. Thus a letter, a bullet, the output of theta “flitter” are all, to us, communication. (PAB 4) 5 . the ability to translate sympathy or some component of sympathy from one terminal to another terminal. (Spr Lect 5, 5303CM25) 6 . an interchange of energy from one beingness to another in the thetan, and in Homo sapiens, communication is known as perception. (Scn 8- 8008, p. 21) 7 . the handling of particles, of motion. (PAB 1) 8 . the interchange of perception through the material universe between organisms or the perception of the material universe by sense channels. (Scn 0-8, p. 83) 9 . the interchange of ideas across space. (Scn 0-8, p. 36)1 0 . the use of those sense channels with which the individual contacts the physical universe. (DAB, Vol. II, p. 218)

COMMUNICATION BRIDGE, 1 . it simply closes off the process you were running, maintains ARC, and opens up the new process on which you are about to embark. (PAB 151) 2 . before a question is asked, the preclear should have the question discussed with him and the wording agreed upon as though he were making a contract with the auditor. This is the first part of a communication bridge. It precedes all questions but when one is changing from one process to another the bridge becomes a bridge indeed. (PAB 88) 3 . the reason we use a communication bridge is so a pc will not be startled by change, for if we change too rapidly in a session, we stick the preclear in the session every time. We give him some warning; and that is what a communication bridge is for. (PAB 151)

COMMUNICATION CHANGE, by communication change we also mean perception change. (PAB 1) COMMUNICATION COURSE, 1 . because the H.A.S. Course is a course about communication, it is often called the C o m m C o u r s e (comm being for communication). (HCO PL 15 Apr 71R) 2 . a basic Scn c o u r s e consisting mainly of the TRs; also called the H.A.S. (Hubbard Apprentice Scientologist Course). (PRD Gloss) See H.A.S. COURSE.

COMMUNICATION CYCLE, 1. a cycle of communication and two-way communication are actually two different things. A cycle of communication is not a two-way communication in its entirety. In a cycle of communication we have Joe as the originator of a communication addressed to Bill. We find Bill receiving it and then Bill originating an answer or acknowledgment back to Joe and thus ends the c y c l e . (Dn 55 .! , p . 8 2 ) 2 . consists of just cause, distance, effect with intention, attention, duplication and understanding. (HCOB 23 May 1971R IV) Abbr. comm cycle.

COMMUNICATION FORMULA, 1 . communication is the interchange of ideas or objects between two people or terminals. (PXL Gloss) 2. the formula of communication is: Cause, Distance, Effect with Intention, Attention and Duplication with Understanding. (HCOB 5 Apr 73)

COMMUNICATION LAG, the length of time intervening between the asking of the question by the auditor and the reply to that specific question by the preclear. The question must be precise; the reply must be precisely to that question. It does not matter what intervenes in the time between the asking of the question and the receipt of the answer. The preclear may outflow, jabber, discuss, pause, hedge, disperse, dither or be silent; no matter what he does or how he does it, between the asking of the question and the giving of the answer, the time is the communication lag. The near answer, a guessing answer, an undecided answer, are alike imprecise answers, and are not adequate responses to the question. On receipt of such questionable answers, the auditor must ask the question again. That he asks the question again does not reduce the communication lag; he is still operating from the moment he asked the question the first time. And if he has to ask the question 20 or 30 times more in the next hour in order to get a precise and adequate answer from the preclear, the length of time of the lag would be from the asking of the first question to the final receipt of the answer. Near answers to the question are inadequate, and are, themselves, simply part of the communication lag. (PAB 43)

COMMUNICATION LAG INDEX, 1 . the length of time it takes to get a logical answer. ( Spr Lect 3, 5303CM24) 2 . the most important method of telling whether or not a person is sick or well. A person who answers quickly (and rationally) is in much better condition than a person who answers after a long consideration. (PAB 2)

COMMUNICATION LINE, 1 . the route along which a communication travels from one person to another. (Scn AD) 2 . any sequence through which a message of any character may go. (SOS, p. 94)

COMMUNICATION PROCESS, any process which places the preclear at cause and uses communication as the principal command phrase. (HCOB 7 Aug 59)

COMMUNICATION SCALE, refers to the individual’s ability to communicate with other people (in relation to his position on the tone scale). (NOTL, p. 103)

COMMUNICATIONS RELEASE, expanded Grade 0 release. (CG&AC 75) See GRADE 0 RELEASE.

COMPARABLE MAGNITUDE, 1 . similar importance. (PAB 126) 2 . a datum can only be evaluated by comparison with another datum of comparable magnitude. This means the basic unit must therefore, be two. (SOS Gloss) Abbr. Comp Mag.

COMPARTMENTING THE QUESTION, 1 . reading it word by word and phrase by phrase to see if any one word or any one phrase falls rather than the question as a whole. (HCOB 28 Sept 61) 2 . using the prior reads occurring at the exact end of the minor thoughts to dig up different data not related to the whole thought. (HCOB 25 May 62)

COMPLETE, the reverse of quickie. To make whole, entire or perfect; end after satisfying all demands or requirements. (HCOB 19 Apr 72)

COMPLETE CASE, a case is not complete unless the lowest incomplete grade chart action is complete and then each completed in turn on up. (HCOB 26 Aug 70)

COMPLETE LIST, 1 . a l i s t which has only one reading item on l i s t . (HCOB 1 Aug 68) 2. any list listed for assessment that does not produce a dirty needle while nulling or tiger drilling. (HCOB 12 Nov 62)

COMPLETION, 1. a completion is the completing of a specific course or an auditing grade meaning it has been started, worked through and has successfully ended with an award in Qual. (HCOB 19 Jun 71 III) 2 . a finished level or rundown. (HCO PL 29 Aug 71)

COMP MAG, comparable magnitude. (BTB 20 Aug 71R II)

COMPOSITE ILLNESS, an illness composed of many somatics. (HCOB 19 Jul 69)

COMPULSION, 1 . an engramic command that the organism must do something. (DTOT, p. 58) 2 . things pc feels compelled to do. (BTB 24 Apr 69)

COMPULSIVE COMMUNICATION, an outflow which is not pertinent to the s u r r o u n d i n g t e r m i n a l s a n d s i t u a t i o n . I n o t h e r w o r d s , compulsive communication is an outflow which is not in reality with the existing reality. (Dn 55!, p. 93)

COMPULSIVE EXTERIORIZATION, a manifestation which we call in Scn “doing a bunk,” in other words, running away. (Dn 55! p. 136)

COMPUTATION, technically, that aberrated evaluation and postulate that one must be consistently in a certain state in order to succeed. The computation thus may mean that one must entertain in order to be alive or that one must be dignified in order to succeed or that one must own much in order to live. A computation is simply stated. It is always aberrated. A computation is as insidious as it p r e t e n d s t o a l i g n w i t h s u r v i v a l . A l l c o m p u t a t i o n s are non-survival. Computations are held in place wholly to invalidate others. (AP&A, p. 41)

COMPUTATIONAL ALTITUDE, signifying that the individual has an outstanding ability to think, to c o m p u t e upon data. Albert Einstein had computational altitude. (SOS Gloss)

COMPUTING PSYCHOTIC, 1. a psychotic who from his reactivity figure- figures. He’s inconstant in his conduct, he’s computive. He figures it all out, he’s got explanations. His p s y c h o s i s is derived because these are crazy explanations. He’s obsessively solving a problem that does not exist. (SH Spec 83, 6612C06) 2 . t h e computing psychotic passes quite commonly for a normal. Here the individual is taking dictation solely from a facsimile of some past moment of pain and is acting upon the advice of that “circuit” and is calling it thought. The psychotic personality is distinguished by its irrationality and its perversion of values. The distinguishing characteristic of the computing psychotic is his utter inability to change his mind. (AP&A, p. 38)

CONCENTRATION, duration of a mock-up in present time. (Spr Lect 4, 5303M24)

CONCEPT, 1 . a high wave thought, above perception or reason or single incidents. (Scn 8-80, p. 29) 2 . that which is retained after something has been perceived. (DMSMH, p. 46)

CONCEPT RUNNING, the preclear “gets the idea” of knowing or not being and holds it, the while looking at his time track. The concept runs out, or the somatic it brings on runs out, and the concept itself is run. It is not addressed at individual incidents but at hundreds. (Scn 8-80, p. 29)

CONCLUSION, the theta facsimiles of a group of combined data. (Scn 0-8, p. 78)

CONDITION, 1 . anything called for as a requirement before the performance, completion or effectiveness of something else; provision; stipulation. Anything essential to the existence or occurrence of something else; external circumstances or factors. Manner or state of being. Proper or healthy state. (HCOB 11 May 65) 2 . a circumstance regarding a mass or terminal. (PAB 126)

CONDITIONS BY DYNAMICS, an ethics type action. Have the person study the conditions formulas. Clear up the words related to his dynamics one to eight, and what they are. Now ask him what is his condition on the first dynamic. Have him study the formulas. Don’t buy any glib PR. When he’s completely sure of what his condition really is on the first dynamic he will cognite. Similarly go on up each one of the dynamics until you have a condition for each one. Continue to work this way. Somewhere along the line he will start to change markedly. (HCO PL 4 Apr 72) [The above is a brief summary only. The full procedure will be found in the referenced HCO PL.]

CONDITIONS (ETHICS), in Scn the term also means the ethics conditions (confusion,* treason, enemy, doubt, liability, nonexistence, danger, emergency, normal, affluence, power change, power). The state or condition of any person, group or activity can be plotted on this scale of conditions which shows the degree of success or survival of that person, group or activity at any time. Data on the application of these conditions is contained in the ethics policies and tapes of Scn. (BTB 12 Apr 72R) [*The ethics condition of confusion came later than the date of this BTB and is added here by the editor in order that all the current ethics conditions are included.]

CONDITION OF BEING, see CONDITIONS OF EXISTENCE. CONDITIONS OF EXISTENCE, there are three conditions of existence. These three conditions comprise life. They are BE, DO and HAVE. The condition of being is defined as the assumption (choosing) of a category of identity. An example of beingness could be one’s own name. Another example would be one’s profession. The second condition of existence is doing. By doing, we mean action, function, accomplishment, the attainment of goals, the fulfilling of purpose, or any change of position in space. The third condition is havingness. By havingness we mean owning, possessing, being capable of commanding, positioning, taking charge of objects, energies or spaces. These three conditions are given in an order of seniority (importance) where life is concerned. (FOT, pp. 26-27)

CONDUCT SURVIVAL PATTERN, the conduct survival pattern is built upon the equation of the optimum solution. It is the basic equation of all rational behavior and is the equation on which a Clear functions. It is inherent in man. In other words, the best solution to any problem is that which will bring the greatest good to the greatest number of beings. (DMSMH, p. 34) CONF, conference. (HCOB 29 Sept 66)

CONFESSION, a limited effort to relieve a person of the pressure of his overt acts. (HCOB 21 Jan 60, Justification)

CONFESSIONAL, 1 . sec checking done in session not for security purposes is called a confessional. (HCOB 14 Oct 72) 2 . modern confessional is not earlier style security checking, this is new tech. F/Ning every item, getting questions asked to F/N, not some other question. (FBDL 245, 23 Nov 72) See also SECURITY CHECKING and INTEGRITY PROCESSING. CONFESSIONAL AID (E-METER), the confessional aid assists the minister in locating and relieving the spiritual travail of individual parishioners in the Scn confessional. The confessional aid does not diagnose or treat human ailments of body or mind, nor does it affect the structure or any function of the body; its use is directed as an article of faith of the Church of Scientology, and was never intended for use outside of the Scientology ministry. (HCO PL 9 Jul 69) See also E-METER.

CONFRONT, n. 1 . an action of being able to face. (HCOB 4 Jan 73) 2 . the ability to be there comfortably and perceive. (HCOB 2 Jun 71 I) 3. confront itself is a result and an end product. It itself isn’t a doingness, it’s an ability. (SH Spec 21, 6106C27) —v. to face without flinching or avoiding. (HCOB 4 Jan 73)

CONFRONTING, 1 . the ability to be there comfortably and perceive. (HCOB 2 Jun 71R-1) 2 . the ability to front up to. (SH Spec 84, 6612C13)

CONFRONT PROCESS, 1. the confront process for a pc from the Thirty-Six Presessions. The confront process gets the preclear to present time from areas on the track where his attention was fixed by an earlier process. (EME, p. 20) 2 . it should move pc on the track, going further into the past and easier and easier into present time. PC’s pictures should improve on a confront process. (HCOB 23 Sept 60)

C O N F U S I O N , 1 . a c o n f u s i o n can be defined as any set of factors or circumstances which do not seem to have any immediate solution. More broadly, a c o n f u s i o n in this universe is random motion. (POW, p. 21) 2 . p l u s randomity. It means motion unexpected above the tolerance level of the person viewing it. (Abil 36) 3 . a number of force vectors traveling in a number of different directions. (UPC 11) 4 . a confusion consists of two things, time and space; change of particles in, predicted or unpredicted, and if they are unpredicted changes in space you will have a confusion. (SH Spec 58, 6109C26)

CONNECTEDNESS, the basic process on association of theta with mest. All forms and kinds of association, including being caught in traps, prone to become identifications as in Dn. Connectedness puts the thetan at cause in making the mest (or people when run outside) connect with him. (SCP, p. 28) CONSCIOUS, when the analytical mind is fully in command of the organism. (DMSMH, p. 59)

CONSCIOUSNESS, 1 . awareness of now. (DTOT, p. 24) 2 . consciousness is awareness. Awareness itself is perception. (2ACC-8B, 5311CM24)

CONSERVATISM, at 3 .0 on the tone scale we have the person who is democratic, but who is somewhat more conservative than the liberal at 3 .5 in his attitudes and more given to social regulations, being more in need of them. (SOS, p. 124) CONSIDER, think, believe, suppose, postulate. (PAB 82)

CONSIDERATION, 1 . a thought, a postulate about something. (BTB 1 Dec 71R IV) 2. a consideration is a continuing postulate. (5702C26) 3 . the highest capability of life, taking rank over the mechanics of space, energy and time. (COHA Gloss)

CONSULTANT, an instructor who is on duty sporadically or from time to time but not routinely in any one place. (HCOB 23 Apr 59) CONT, continue (-d) (-ing), continental. (BPL 5 Nov 72RA)

CONTACT ASSIST, the patient is taken to the area where the injury occurred and makes the injured member gently contact it several times. A sudden pain will fly off and the injury if minor, lessens or vanishes. This is a physical communication factor. The body member seems to have withdrawn from that exact spot in the physical universe. The restoration of awareness is often necessary before healing can occur. The prolongation of a chronic injury occurs in the absence of physical communication with the affected area or with the location of the spot of injury in the physical universe. (HCOB 2 Apr 69)

CONTAGION OF ABERRATION, 1 . entheta, in proximity to theta, makes entheta out of it. From this we have the contagion of aberration. (SOS, Bk. 2 , p . 2 4 ) 2 . people under stress, if aberrated, dramatize engrams. Such dramatization may involve the injury of another person and render him more or less “unconscious.” The “unconscious” person then receives as an engram the dramatization. (DMSMH, p. 134)

CONTAGION OF ERROR, on a course where the students audit each other a contagion of error can occur. For example, student A does a bad assessment on student B. Student B is then likely to give a bad assessment to his next pc and you soon have a whole rash of bad assessments. A similar phenomenon occurs when students are permitted to get the answers to their queries from other students. (HCOB 20 May 69)

CONTINUING OVERT ACT, continually committing overts before, during and after processing. The person who is not getting case gains is committing continuing overts. (HCOB 29 Sept 65 II)

CONTINUING OVERT CASE, who commits overts even when being audited and between sessions. (HCOB 1 Jun 65)

CONTINUOUS MISSED WITHHOLD, a continuous missed withhold occurs when a person feels some way and anyone who sees him m i s s e s it. Example: a doctor feels very unconfident of his skill. Every patient who sees him misses the fact that he is not confident. This reacts as a missed withhold. It is of course based upon some bad incident that destroyed his confidence (usually of an engramic intensity). (HCOB 15 Dec 73)

CONTINUOUS OVERT, this is not quite the same as The Continuing Overt Act, HCOB 29 Sept 65 . In that type the person is repeating overt acts against something usually named. In the continuous overt a person who believes he is harmful to others may also believe that many of his common ordinary actions are harmful. He may feel he is committing a continuous overt on others. Example: a clothing model believes she is committing a fraud on older women by displaying clothing to them in which they will look poorly. In her estimation this is a continuous overt act. (HCOB 15 Dec 73)

CONTINUOUS OVERTS CASE, here’s one that commits antisocial acts daily during auditing. He’s psychotic, he’ll never get better, case always hangs up. We can even solve that case. (HCOB 4 Apr 65)

CONTRA-SURVIVAL ENGRAM, l. any kind of engram which lies across the dynamics and has no alignment with purpose. (DMSMH, p. 262) 2 . a contra- survival engram contains physical pain, painful emotions, all other perceptions and menace to the organism. It contains apparent or actual antagonism to the individual. (DMSMN, p. 62)

CONTROL, 1 . you are stating a greater truth when you say that control is predictable change than if you say control is start, change and stop because start and stop are, of course, necessary to change. You might say the thinking or philosophic definition would be predictable change. (5703C10) 2 . when we say control, we simply mean willingness to start, stop and change. (Dn 55!, p. 100) 3 . positive postulating, which is intention, and the execution thereof. (Scn 0-8, p. 36)

CONTROL CASE, l. the case where control is obsessive or other-determined, or where the individual is controlling things out of compulsion or fear. (Dn 55!, p. 100) 2 . the person who feels he must be cold blooded in order to be rational is what is called in Dianetics a “control case,” and on examination will be found to be very far from as rational as he might be. People who cannot experience emotion because of their aberrations are ordinarily sick people. (SA, p. 94)

CONTROL CENTER, l. the control center of the organism can be defined as the contact point between theta and the physical universe and is that center which is aware of being aware and which has charge of and responsibility for the organism along all its dynamics. (Scn 0-8, p. 84) 2 . every mind may be considered to have a control center. This could be called the “awareness of awareness unit” of the mind, or it could be called simply “I”. The control center is cause. It directs, through emotional relay systems, the actions of the body and the environment. It is not a physical thing. (HFP, p. 30)

CONTROL CIRCUIT, the control circuit may conduct itself as an interior entity which takes the preclear out of the auditor’s hands. When preclears are very hard to handle, take the bit in their teeth and try to run their own cases despite anything the auditor may do, they are running on control circuit B, recorded commands which make the preclear misbehave under auditing. (SOS, Bk. 2, p. 204)

CONTROL-CONCEPT PROCESSING, you just get the concept of “you can’t control it” and the concept that “you can control it.” (5209CM04B) CONTROL PROCESSES, p r o c e s s e s which place the pc’s body and actions under the auditor’s control to invite control of them by the pc. (HCOB 29 Oct 57)

CONTROL TRANSFER, a specialized kind of transfer wherein the thetan having devoted himself to a mest body now begins to control the environment and other people for his body much as he controls the body. (HOM, p. 78)

CONTROL TRIO, a three-stage process on a heavy spotting control. It runs in this fashion. “Get the idea that you can have that (object).” And when this is relatively flat, “Get the idea of making that (object) remain where it is” (or continue where it is) and “Get the idea of making that (object) disappear.” This is actually a very fine process and undercuts (runs on a lower case than) trio itself. (SCP, p. 22)

CONVERSATION, the process of alternating out-flowing and inflowing communication. (Dn 55!, p. 63) COO, designation on HCO Policy Letters and HCO Bulletins indicates dissemination and restriction as follows: HCO City Offices only, not to be shown or given to HCO franchise holders or field Auditors; also goes to central organizations, HCO Area, HCO Cont, HCO WW. (HCO PL 22 May 59) COPY, n. 1 . a duplicate, distinguished from a perfect duplicate, in that it does not necessarily occupy the same space, same time, nor use the same energies as the original. (COHA Gloss) 2 . the word “duplicate” is used, rather sloppily, to indicate a c o p y . However, a copy is not a complete duplicate; a copy is a facsimile. (COHA, p. 82) 3 . something that a thetan on his own volition simply made of an object in the physical universe with full knowingness. (PXL, p. 65) —v. to make another one just like it. (COHA, p. 34)

CORPSE CASE, a pc who would lie upon the couch with his arms crossed neatly all ready for a lily and would always audit in this fashion. The preclear is so fixed in a death that he is trying to make everything unreal, and the only real thing, to him, would be the unreality of death. (PAB 50) See also COFFIN CASE. CORRECTION LIST, 1 . a list of prepared questions on a mimeod sheet which is used by the auditor for the repair of a particular situation, action, or rundown. (BTB 7 Nov 72 I) 2 . the various lists designed to find by-passed charge and repair a faulty auditing action or life situation. (HCOB 28 May 70) COTERM, combined terminal. (HCOB 8 Nov 62)

COUNTER-CREATE, see CREATE-COUNTER-CREATE. C O U N T E R – E F F O R T , 1 . t h e e f f o r t w h i c h c o u n t e r s one’s survival. (5203CM06A) 2 . a n y e f f o r t the environment can exert against you. (5203CM04B) 3 . what we’re talking about when we talk about a counter- effort is the force of impact of an engram. The force of impact which gives the pc an engram is a counter-effort. (5206CM25A)

COUNTER-EMOTION, any emotion that is countering an existing emotion. (SH Spec 84, 6612C13) COUNTER-THOUGHT, you think one thing somebody else thinks another. Their thought is counter to your thought. (HFP, p. 115)

COURAGE, the theta force necessary to overcome the obstacles in surviving. (SOS, p. 139)

COURSE ADMINISTRATOR, the course staff member in charge of the course materials and records. (HCOB 19 Jun 71 III)


COURSE MATERIALS, in Scn and Dn course materials are defined as those books, tapes, magazines, HCO Bulletins, HCO Policy Letters and other authorized technical issues listed on the check-sheets of courses designed for use by the Church’s public. (BTB 24 Nov 71 II)

COURSE SUP, course supervisor. (HCOB 23 Aug 65) COURSE SUPERVISOR, 1 . the instructor in charge of a course and its students. (HCOB 19 Jun 71 III) 2 . basically, someone who in addition to his others duties can refer the person to the exact bulletin to get his information and never tells him another thing. (6905C29) Abbr. Crse Sup.

COURSE SUPERVISOR CORRECTION LIST, a correction list designed to help locate the individual reasons a supervisor has for not fully applying the study tech in supervision. (HCOB 27 Mar 72R II)

COVERT AUDITING, some students covertly audit. In “talking” to someone they also seek to audit that person “without the person knowing anything about it.” This of course is nonsense since auditing results are best achieved in a session and a session depends upon a self-determined agreement to be audited. (HCOB 17 Oct 64 III)

COVERT HOSTILITY, around 1 .1 on the tone scale we reach the level of covert hostility. Here the hatred of the individual has been socially and individually censured to a point where it has been suppressed, and the individual no longer dares demonstrate hate as such. He yet possesses sufficient energy to express some feeling on the matter, and so what hatred he feels comes forth covertly. All manner of subterfuges may be resorted to. The person may claim to love others and to have the good of others as his foremost interest; yet, at the same moment, he works, unconsciously or otherwise, to injure or destroy the lives and reputations of people and also to destroy property. (SOS, p. 56) C R , cramming. (HCOB 16 Jun 71 III) [Replaced now by BTB 16 Jun 71RA III.]

CRAMMING, 1 . a section in the Qualifications Division where a student is given high pressure instruction at his own cost after being found slow in study or when failing his exams. (HCOB 19 Jun 71 III) 2. the cramming section teaches students what they have missed. This includes trained auditors who wish to be brought up-to-date on current technical developments. (HCO PL 13 May 69) CRAMMING ORDER, 1. a cramming order is written to handle a specific situation. If that is not handled, the situation will worsen or change, thus the original cramming order will not sufficiently handle if it is stale dated. (BTB 21 Jan 73R) 2 . there is a certain technology on how to write up a cramming order: (1) isolate the exact outnesses in the folder; (2) order those HCOBs or PLs crammed; (3) now look in a slightly wider
circle around the data flunked and get which basic is involved (i.e. Auditor Code, TRs, metering, handling the session, handling the pc as a being, etc.) and get that crammed, too. (BTB 12 Dec 71R)

CREAK, a stiffness, and out-of-plumpness, an unchanging situation, a no-energy flow. (HCOB 13 Apr 64, Scn VI Part One Glossary of Terms) CREATE, make, manufacture, construct, postulate, bring into beingness. (FOT, p. 20)

CREATE-COUNTER-CREATE, t o create something against a creation, to create one thing and then create something else against it. (FOT, pp. 20-21)

CREATE-CREATE-CREATE, create again continuously one moment after the next=SURVIVAL. (FOT, p. 20)

CREATIVE IMAGINATION, imagination, whereby in the field of aesthetics the urges and impulses of the various dynamics are interwoven into new scenes and ideas. (SOS, Bk. 2, p. 101)

CREATIVE PROCESSING, 1. the exercise by which the pc is actually putting up the physical universe. (SH Spec 52, 6502C23) 2 . creative processing consists of having the preclear make, with his own creative energies, a mock- up. (COHA Gloss)

CRIMINAL, 1 . one who is unable to think of the other fellow, unable to determine his own actions, unable to follow orders, unable to make things grow, unable to determine the difference between good and evil, unable to think at all on the future. Anybody has some of these; the criminal has ALL of them. (NSOL, p.78) 2 . one who thinks help cannot be on any dynamic or uses help on anyone to injure and destroy. (HCOB 28 May 60) 3 . criminals are people who are frantically attempting to create an effect long after they know they cannot. They cannot then create decent effects, only violent effects. Neither can they work. (FOT, pp. 31-32) CRISS-CROSS, see 3DXX. CRITICAL THOUGHT, 1 . a symptom of an overt act having been committed. (SH Spec 37, 6409C01) 2 . a critical pc=a withhold from the auditor. (HCOB 23 Aug 71)

CRITICISM, 1 . most criticism is justification of having done an overt. There are rightnesses and wrongnesses in conduct and society and life at large, but random, carping 1 .1 criticism when not borne out in fact is only an effort to reduce the size of the target of the overt. (HCOB 21 Jan 60, Justification) 2 . a criticism is a hope that they can damage, and that’s what a criticism is, with an inability to do so. (SH Spec 119, 6202C22) CR0000-1, a drill to train the student to raise his awareness of the condition of the pc called “Set up for a perfect session” drill. (HCOB 16 Jun 71 III) An auditor must be able to see when a pc has not eaten or slept, or what his tone level is, or is the pc auditable. [This HCOB is cancelled and replaced by BTB 16 Jun 71RA III and the drill renamed “Ideal Session Start.”] CR0000-2, a drill to train an auditor to increase session pace when auditing a fast pc. Its name is Rapid TR-2 . This is basically a correction drill for auditors who tend to lose session control by slow acknowledgments inviting endless itsa. (BTB 16 Jun 71R II) CR0000-3, an E-meter drill to train an auditor to confront an E-meter. If a student has difficulty doing the preceding E-meter drills, this drill is done. It is a gradient step towards greater session control. The student confronts the E-meter and does nothing else for two hours. (BTB 16 Jun 71R II) CR0000-4, a drill to train an auditor to be able to see the pc, the pc’s hands on the cans, the meter plus any reads, and the worksheets without having to look at any one of them. The auditor is trained to widen his/her vision until the auditor can see the meter, the pc, the pc’s hands on the cans, and the worksheets effortlessly. (BTB 16 Jun 71R II) CR0000-5, E-meter trim check drill. A drill to train an auditor to be able to do a trim check effortlessly in a session without distracting the pc in any way. (BTB 16 Jun 71R II)

CROSS ENGRAM, an engram which embraces more than one engram chain. The receipt of the cross engram, containing as it does the convergence of two or more engram chains, is often accompanied by a “nervous breakdown” or the sudden insanity of an individual. A cross engram may occur in a severe accident, in prolonged or severe illness under antagonistic circumstances, or a nitrous oxide operation. (DTOT, p. 115)

CROSSOVER, 1 . the area in the center of a GPM is the crossover. This means the RI’s which cause the pc to become an opponent of his own goal. (HCOB 4 Apr s3) 2 . c r o s s o v e r means where the individual ceases to be for the goal, and starts to be against the goal. (SH Spec 329, s312C12) CRS, course. (BPL 5 Nov 72RA) C / S , a case supervisor direction of what to audit on a pc. (HCOB 23 Aug 71) C / S , 1. case supervisor. (HCOB 23 Aug 71) 2. commodore’s staff. (BPL 5 Nov 72 RA) C S C , Clearing Success Congress. (HCOB 29 Sept 55) C / S 5 3 , the basic list to get TA up or down into normal range. Assessed M-5, reading items handled then reassessed etc. to F/Ning assessment. Done well with good basic auditing this action should not need to be frequently repeated on a case. TA going high or low in later auditing after C/S 53 already fully handled is normally handled with the correction list for that action (e.g. L4BR when TA high after listing or WCCL on word clearing, etc.). EP is C/S 53 F/Ning on assessment with TA in normal range. (BTB 11 Aug 72RA) [This list has been revised a number of times and its current number is C/S 53RJ.] C S – 5 , Commodores Staff 5 Qualifications. (BPL 5 Nov 72RA) CS-4, Commodores Staff 4 Training and Services. (BPL 5 Nov 72RA) C/SHEET, also ch. sheet or √/sht. Abbreviation for check-sheet. (BTB 12 Apr 72R) C/SING IN THE CHAIR, the auditor may not C/S in the auditing chair while auditing the pc. If he has no case supervisor he writes the C/S before session and adheres to it in session. To do something else and not follow the C/S is called C/Sing in the chair and is very poor form as it leads to Q & A. (HCOB 23 Aug 71) C S – 1 , 1 . a general C/S which covers the basics of getting a pc sessionable. The product is an educated pc who can run Scn or Dn easily and get case gain. (BTB 8 Jan 71R) 2 . purpose: to give pcs new to Dn or Scn and to give previously audited pcs as needed, the necessary data and R-factor on basics and auditing procedure so that he understands and is able and willing to be audited successfully. (BTB 8 Jan 71R) C / S – 6 , see CLASS VIII C/S-6 . CT, clay table. (HCOB 6 Nov 64) CTH, clay table healing. (HCOB 27 Apr 65) CULTURE, the pattern (if any) of life in the society. All factors of the society, social educational, economic, etc., whether creative or destructive. The culture might be said to be the theta body of the society. (SOS Gloss)

CURVE, throw a curve means to give an unexpected contrary datum. Also to shift reality. Curve itself is also the ordinary dictionary meaning. (LRH Def. Notes) CUTATIVE, an invented word to mean the impulse to shorten or leave out or the thing left out. (HCO PL 26 Sept 70 III)

CUT COGNITION, you taking too soon an F/N (F/N indicated at the first twitch) you cut the cognition and leave by-passed charge (a withheld cognition). (HCOB 14 Mar 71R)

CYCLE, 1 . in Scn, a cycle just means from the beginning to the conclusion of an intentional action. (Aud 39) 2 . a span of time with a beginning and an end=a section of the totality of time with a beginning and an end=in beginningless and endless time one can set out periods which do have a beginning and an end insofar as action is concerned. (FOT, p. 19)

CYCLE OF ACTION, 1 . the sequence that an action goes through, wherein the action is started, is continued for as long as is required and then is completed as planned. (Scn AD) 2 . the creation, growth, conservation, decay and death or destruction of energy and matter in a space. Cycles of action produce time. (PXL, p. 8) See also ACTUAL CYCLE OF ACTION. C Y C L E O F A N O R G A N I S M , t h e c y c l e o f a n o r g a n i s m , a group of organisms or a species is inception, growth, re-creation, decay and death. (HFP, p. 172)

CYCLE OF AN OVERT, it goes like this. (1) a being doesn’t get the meaning of a word or symbol. (2) this causes the being to misunderstand the area of the symbol or word (who used it, whatever it applied to). (3) this causes the being to feel different from or antagonized toward the user or whatever of the symbol and so makes it all right to commit an overt. (4) having committed the o v e r t , the being now feels he has to have a motivator and so feels caved in. This is the stuff of which Hades is made. This is the trap. This is why people get sick. This is stupidity and lack of ability. (HCOB 8 Sept 64)

CYCLE OF A UNIVERSE, could be said to be the cycle of creation, growth, conservation, decay and destruction. This is the cycle of an entire universe or any part of that universe. It is also the cycle of life forms. (Scn 8-8008, p. 97)

CYCLE OF MIS-DEFINITION, (1) a person didn’t grasp a word, then (2) didn’t understand a principle or theory, then (3) became different from it, commits and committed overts against it, then (4) restrained himself or was restrained from committing these overts, then (5) being on a withhold (inflow) pulled in a motivator. Not every word somebody didn’t grasp was followed by a principle or theory. An overt was not committed every time this happened. Not every overt committed was restrained. So no motivator was pulled in. Every nattery or non-progressing student or pc is hung in the above 1,2,3,4,5 cycle. And every such student or pc has a misdefined word at the bottom of that pile. (HCOB 21 Feb 66) CYCLE OF MOTION, go from a no change to a change to a no change. (SH Spec 14, 6106C14)

CYCLE OF RANDOMITY, the cycle of randomity is from static, through optimum, through randomity sufficiently repetitious or similar to constitute another static. (HFP, p. 174) C Y C L E O F S U R V I V A L , conception, growth, attainment, decay, death, conception, growth, attainment, decay, death, over and over again. (HFP, p. 20)

CYCLE OF THE ROCK, a person (1) failed to communicate himself; (2) started using something to communicate with; (3) put the last item on automatic and it created for him; (4) it failed. T h e r o c k , itself, when first located will be a solution to many earlier cycles as described above. And so, a rock is peeled off cycle by cycle as above. (HCOB 29 Jul 58)

CYCLIC PROCESS, a repetitive process which causes the preclear to c y c l e on the time track as in recall type processes. IHCOB 29 Sept 65, Cyclical and Non- Cyclical Processes)

CYCLIC PSYCHOTIC, a p s y c h o t i c who becomes completely enturbulated during certain periods of the day, or of the week, or of the month. This type is generally running on a time factor contained in the engram. The incident may have occurred on the twenty-fifth of the month and continued to the thirtieth of every month. Or the incident may have occurred at ten o’clock at night so the psychotic is only insane at ten o’clock every night. (SOS, Bk. 2, p. 190) dD A , Dn Auditor. (Scn Jour Iss. 31-G) DAC, Dianetic Auditor Course. (BTB 12 Apr 72R) [The course teaching Dianetics prior to the Hubbard Standard Dianetics Course (HSDC).] DANGEROUS AUDITOR, 1. an auditor who consistently does things that are upsetting to a pc’s case. (HCOB 12 Feb 66) 2 . the auditor who gets off safe withholds is dangerous and the auditor who gets off unsafe withholds is safe. An auditor who will not pull dangerous withholds from the pc is a dangerous auditor. (SH Spec 113, 6202C20) 3 . the auditor who is afraid to find out, afraid to be startled, afraid to discover something, afraid of what they will discover. This phobia prevents the “auditor” from flattening anything. This makes missed withholds a certainty. (HCOB 3 Mar 62)

DANGEROUS ENVIRONMENT, see SCIENTOLOGY ZERO. DATA, consists of the postulates or assignment of value of thetans; that’s data, that’s all data is. (15ACC-12, 5610C30)

DATA ALTITUDE, signifying that the individual has a fund of knowledge gathered from books and records, or sometimes from experience, with which others are not familiar. The college professor has a data altitude. (SOS Gloss)

DATE FLASH, the auditor says to the preclear, “When I snap my fingers, a date will flash. Give me the first response which comes into your mind,” (snap!). The preclear then gives the first date which comes into his mind. (SOS, Bk. 2, p. 51)

DATE/LOCATE, a process to date and locate a flat point in a process that appears overrun. (HCOB 24 Sept 71) Abbr. D/L. DATUM, 1 . a piece of knowledge, something known. Plural, data. (BTB 4 Mar 65) 2 . anything of which one could become aware, whether the thing existed or whether he created it. (Scn 8-8008, p. 6) 3 . an invented, not a true, knowingness. (COHA, p. 151) 4 . anything which proceeds from a postulate. (PDC 14) 5 . a theta facsimile of physical action. (Scn 0-8, p. 78) 6 . a facsimile of states of being, states of not being, actions or inactions, conclusions, or suppositions in the physical or any other universe. (Scn 0-8, p. 67) DB, degraded being. (Abil 272) DCG, see DIANETIC COUNSELING GROUP. D D , Doctor of Divinity. (HCOB 23 Aug 65)

DEAD BODY, physical universe matter, energy, space and time minus life energy. (SA, p. 27)

DEAD HORSE, Slang. 1 . a list which even with good auditing, failed for any other reason to produce a reliable item. (HCOB 5 Dec 62) 2 . if no slam occurs anywhere on a listing list with the mid ruds in for the session, that’s a dead horse. (SH Spec 219, 6211C27) 3 . an item listed from a non-reading question will give you a dead horse (no item). (HCOB 1 Aug 68) DEAD-IN-’IS-’DEAD CASE, Slang. a c a s e totally associating all thought with mass. Thus he reads peculiarly on the meter. As he is audited he frees his thinkingness so that he can think without mass connotations. (HCOB 17 Mar 60)

DEAD LIST, null list. (HCOB 29 Jan 70)

DEADLY QUARTET, these processes are four in number. They are designed as classes of processes to handle these four points: (1) help factor, (2) control factor, (3) pc communication factor, (4) interest factor. 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. (HCOB 21 Apr 60)

DEAD THETAN, 1 . doesn’t put out any current. Doesn’t react on a meter. Only the body reacts so it looks like a clear read (false read). An ARC break of long duration reads the same way. (LRH Def. Notes) 2 . a false clear read. (HCOB 17 Oct 69) 3 . clear read without tone arm motion and tight needle. That’s your lowest case range, save one. There is one below that. (SH Spec 300, 6308C28). 4 . he’s so “dead in his head” he thinks he’s elsewhere while he’s there. (SH Spec 1, 6105C07) 5 . he thinks of himself as dead and he is totally incapable of influencing the E-meter. (SH Spec 1, 6105C07)

DEAFNESS, the individual simply shutting out sounds. Some d e a f n e s s is occasioned by entirely mechanical trouble with the recording mechanism but most d e a f n e s s , particularly when partial, is psychosomatic or caused by mental aberration. (SA, p. 85)

DEAR ALICE, see TR-1 . DEATH, 1 . a state of beingness rather than an action. It means a fellow’s no longer inhabiting a body. (SH Spec 15X, 6106C15) 2 . a separation occurs between the thetan and the body. However, he takes old facsimiles, energy phenomena and brick-a-brac that he feels he cannot do without, with him and attaches it to the next body he picks up. (PAB 130) 3 . cessation of creation. An individual becomes sufficiently morose on the idea of creation that he can actually bring about the condition of inability to create. (FOT, p. 67) 4. death equals life minus thought equals mest. (NOTL, p. 14) 5 . death is abandonment by theta of a life organism or race or species where these can no longer serve theta in its goals of infinite survival. (Scn 0-8, p. 75) 6 . life’s operation of disposing of an outmoded and unwanted organism so that new organisms can be born and can flourish. (SA, p. 30) 7 . a limited concept of the death of the physical part of the organism. Life and the personality go on. The physical part of the organism ceases to function. And that is death. (SA, p. 30) 8 . a name assigned to what is apparently the mechanism by which theta recovers itself and the bulk of its volume from the mest, so as to be able to accomplish a more harmonious conquest of the mest in a next generation. (SOS, Bk. 2, p. 249)

DEATH FACSIMILE BOP, a little hunt, a little nervous twitch of the needle. (5410CM21)

DEATH TALKER, at 1 .5 on the tone scale is the death talker who is going to save something from destruction by creating great havoc. This person will not listen to a creative and constructive plan unless he can see ways and means of using it to destroy. Warmongers and dictators are markedly in this band. (SOS, p. 145) DEATH WISH, succumb postulates. (HCO PL 27 Apr 69)

DEATH ZONE, below 2 .0 on the tone scale is the death zone, and here as the tone lowers increasingly, more danger exists that all the remaining theta will suddenly at one fell swoop become entheta. (SOS, Bk. 2, p. 13)

DEBUG, to get the snarls or stops out of something. (HCO PL 29 Feb 72 II)

DE-CERTIFICATION, cancellation of an auditor’s certificates. Certificates “pulled” is a measure taken by HCO when these conditions exist: (a) the auditor has consistently refused supervised processing; (b) the auditor has committed antisocial acts liable for prosecution under criminal law, or (c) continues to associate with a de-certified auditor and balks efforts of HCO to bring the person into an HGC for auditing. (HCOB 22 May 60) DECLARE, an action done in Qual after a pc has completed a cycle of action or attained a state. The pc or pre-OT who knows he made it must be sent to Exams and Certs and Awards to attest. A declare completes his cycle of action and is a vital part of the action. (HCOB 19 Jun 71 II)

DECLARE?, “Preclear has reached a grade or release. Please look at preclear and pass on to Certs and Awards.” (HCOB 23 Aug 65) DED, 1 . an incident the preclear does to another dynamic and for which he has no motivator—i.e. he punishes or hurts or wrecks something the like of which has never hurt him. Now he must justify the incident. He will use things which didn’t happen to him. He claims that the object of his injury really DEserveD it, hence the word DED, which is a sarcasm. (HOM, p. 75) 2 . an overt act without having a justification for it in the first place. The motivator is on the wrong side of the overt act and that motivator on the wrong side of an overt act is called a DED. It’s a deserved action. (5206CM24C)

DED-DEDEX, 1 . the overt-motivator sequence went backwards. You hit Joe, then he hits you. Although it went this way you had it figured out that he must have hit you first. So you invented something that he did to you to motivate your hitting him. (SH Spec 83, 6612C06) 2 . overt-motivator sequence; when somebody has committed an overt, he has to claim the existence of motivators—the Ded-Dedex version of Dn. (HCOB 7 Sept 64 II) 3 . where the preclear all out of his own imagination has done something to somebody else and then it has been done to him. (PAB 18) DEDEX, 1 . an incident which happens to a preclear after he has a DED. It is always on the same chain or subject, is always after the DED. It means the DED E X p o s e d . It is covered guilt. (HOM, p. 75) 2 . deserved action explained would be one interpretation of DEDEX. The deserved action. This is why the action was deserved. This is why he blew Joe Blink’s head off, because twenty years later a fellow by the name of Cuffbah tapped him on the temple. (PDC 29) 3 . motivator. (Scn 8-80, p. 32)

DEEP PROCESSING, deep processing addresses basic cause and locates and reduces moments of physical pain and sorrow. (SA,
p. 61)

DEFINITION PROCESSES, t h e f i r s t t h i n g t o k n o w a b o u t definition processes is that they are separate and distinct and stand by themselves as p r o c e s s e s . R e m e d y A a n d R e m e d y B . T h e p u r p o s e o f definitions processing is fast clearing of “held down fives” (jammed thinking because of a misunderstood or misapplied datums) preventing someone getting on with auditing or Scn. (HCOB 21 Feb 66)

DEFINITIONS, TYPES OF, (a) differentiative defintion—one which compares unlikeness to existing states of being or not being. (b) descriptive definition—one which classifies by characteristics, by describing existing states of being. (c) associative definition—one which declares likeness to existing states of being or not being. (d) action definition—one which delineates cause and potential change of state of being by cause of existence, in-existence, action, inaction, purpose or lack of purpose. (AP&A, pp. 65-66)

DEGRADATION, 1 . the lower harmonic of apathy. (SH Spec 70, 6110C24) 2 . an inability to handle force. (PDC 48) 3 . being big and getting small and not at your own request. (PDC 34) DEGRADED BEING, 1 . the degraded being is not a suppressive as he can have case gain. But he is so PTS that he works for suppressives only. He is a sort of super-continual PTS beyond the reach really of a simple S&D and handled only at Section 3 OT Course. The degraded being is not necessarily a natively bad thetan. He is simply so PTS and has been for so long that it requires our highest level of tech to finally undo it after he has scaled up all our grades. (HCOB 22 Mar 67) 2 . v e r y d e g r a d e d b e i n g s alter-is, refuse to comply without mentioning it. Find ANY instruction painful as they have been painfully indoctrinated with violent measures in the past. They therefore alter-is any order or don’t comply. A degraded being is not a suppressive as he can have case gain. But he is so PTS that he works for suppressives only. Degraded beings, taking a cue from SP associates, instinctively resent, hate and seek to obstruct any person in charge of anything. (HCOB 22 Mar 67) Abbr. DB.

DEI SCALE, Desire-Enforcement-Inhibit Scale. (PAB 50) DELUSION, 1 . a belief in something which is contrary to fact or reality resulting from deception, misconception or misassignment. (HCOB 11 May 65) 2 . what one person thinks is, but others don’t necessarily. (SH Spec 72, 6607C28) 3 . the postulation by the imagination of occurrences in areas of plus or minus randomity. (Scn 0-8, p. 90) 4 . delusion is imagination out of control. (Scn Jollr, Iss. 14-G) DEMO, abbreviation for demonstration. Usually refers to either a clay demo or to a demonstration done with a “demo kit.” (BTB 12 Apr 72R) DEMO KIT, demonstration kit. Consists of various small objects such as corks, caps, paper clips, pen tops, batteries—whatever will do. These are kept in a box or container. Each student should have one. The pieces are used while studying to represent the things in the material one is demonstrating. It helps hold concepts and ideas in place. A d e m o k i t adds mass, reality and doingness to the significance and so helps the student to study. (HCOB 19 Jun 71 III)

DEMON, Slang. a by-pass circuit in the mind, called demon because it was long so interpreted. Probably an electronic mechanism. (DMSMH Gloss) 2 . a bone-fide demon is one who gives thoughts voice or echoes the spoken word interiorly or who gives all sorts of complicated advice like a real, live voice exteriorly. (DMSMH, p. 88) 3 . Dn use of the word is descriptive slang. (EOS, p. 16)

DEMON C I R C U I T , 1 . that mental mechanism set up by an engram command which, becoming restimulated and supercharged with secondary engrams, takes over a portion of the analyzer and acts as an individual being. Any command containing “you” and seeking to dominate or nullify the individual’s judgment is potentially a demon circuit. It doesn’t become a real live demon circuit until it becomes keyed-in and picks up secondary engrams and locks. (NOTL, p. 80) 2 . a heavily charged portion of the analytical mind which has been captured by the reactive mind and does its bidding, walled off by charge into a separate entity. (SOS, p. 67) 3, any circuit that vocalizes your thoughts for you. That’s not natural. It’s an installed mechanism from engrams and it slows up thought. (DASF)

DENYER, 1 . a phrase which obscures a part of track by implying it is not there or elsewhere or should not be viewed. (HCOB 15 May 63) 2 . any phrase that you could think of in any language that would d e n y a person knowledge of something would be classified as a d e n y e r . (SH Spec 81, 6111C16) 3 . a species of command which, literally translated, means that the engram doesn’t exist. “I’m not here,” “This is getting nowhere,” “I must not talk about it,” “I can’t remember,” etc. (DMSMH, p. 213) 4 . a command which makes the pc feel there is no incident present. (DMSMH, p. 213)

DEPARTMENT OF PERSONAL ENHANCEMENT, the Department of Personal Enhancement Division V, Qualifications is held responsible for these things. (1) That no misunderstood words exist amongst staff, Auditors or in the Church public. (2) That all training and auditing programs of staff, students, Auditors, internes or public are in correct sequence without skipped gradient and done. (3) That all staff cases are progressing satisfactorily with good OCA (APA) gains and that no no-case gain cases are on staff. (HCO PL 16 Feb 72)

DEPARTMENT OF SPECIAL CASES, the HCO PL which makes Dept 10 a Department of Special Cases is cancelled. Dept 10 must remain as the Department of Tech Services. Drug Cases (for whom the Department of Special Cases was primarily established) are audited in the HGC or Co-Audit on the HSDC Course. (HCO PL 26 Aug 72—Cancellation issue of HCO PL 2 Feb 72 II)

DEPLETION OF HAVINGNESS, the truth of something, even when arrived at by the route of subjection and force, will as-is the something and cause its vanishment, and thus it is no longer had. This is called by auditors the depletion of havingness. (5601C31)

DEPOSIT, a deposit is a confused solid ridge area in the body. (5206CM24B) DEPT, department. (BPL 5 Nov 72RA) DEPT 10s, see DEPARTMENT OF SPECIAL CASES. DERAILER, a type of phrase in an engram which throws the preclear “off the track” and makes him lose touch with his time track. This is a very serious phrase since it can make a schizophrenic and something of this sort is always to be found in schizophrenia. Some of its phrases throw him into other valences which have no proper track, some merely remove time, some throw him bodily out of time. “I don’t have any time” is a derailer. “I’m beside myself” means that he is now two people, one beside the other. “I’ll have to pretend I am somebody else” is a key phrase to identity confusion, and many more. (DMSMH, p. 335)

DESCRIPTION PROCESSING, processing which uses as-isness in present time to remedy the restimulations beheld by the thetan. The total command content of description processing is the phrase “How does . . . seem to you now?” This is used over, and over, and over by the auditor. In the blank he puts any difficulty the preclear is having. (COHA, p. 85)

DESCRIPTIVE DEFINITION, see DEFINITIONS, TYPES OF. DESTIMULATE, 1 . settle out. (HCOB 16 Aug 70) 2 . t o t a k e a w a y t h e re-stimulation. Destimulate does not mean the erasure of the original incident, it means simply the knock out of the point of re-stimulation. (SH Spec 84, 6612C13)

DESTIMULATED, simply knocking out the key-ins of the original charge, you didn’t knock out the original incidents, you just knocked out the moments when the original incident was keyed in. (SH Spec 300, 6308C28)

DESTIMULATION, 1 . the action of deleting the moments of re-stimulation of the reactive mind or some portion of it, so that it moves away from the preclear and he is no longer connected to it. (Scn AD) 2 . to pull the pc out of the charge not try to erase the charge. To knock out the key-ins that keep the charge pinned to the individual. (SH Spec 9, 6403C10)

DESTROY, create-counter-create=to create something against a creation=to create one thing and then create something else against it=destroy. (FOT, p. 20)

DESTRUCTION, the apparent cycle of action contains destruction, but the actual cycle of action tells us what destruction is. Destruction, in terms of action, is a creation of something against a creation of something else. There is another type of destruction and this is no more creation. If one stops making something completely and ceases to be a party to its manufacture, it no longer exists for one. (FOT, pp. 21-22)

DETACHED, 1 . chronically out of valence to the point of no case gain. (HCOB 10 Sept 68) 2 . the person that you run into that takes no responsibility for anything in life and that sort of thing. He isn’t where he is looking from, see? He’s detached. We use that word advisedly. You see, he’s detached from existence, he hasn’t got anything to do with it. Existence is up here and he’s sitting back, “has nothing to do with me.” (SH Spec 48, 6411C04)

DETECTING METER, a meter which detects flows and ridges around your preclear. (PDC 29) DFT, see DIANETIC FLOW TABLE. DHARMA, the name of a legendary Hindu sage whose many progenies were the personification of virtue and religious rites. Dharma is a mythological figure and we have the word Dharma almost interchangeable with the word Dhyana. But whatever you use there you are using a word which means knowingness. That’s what that word means. (7ACC-25, 5407C19)

DHYANA, 1 . the word Dhyana is almost interchangeable with the word Dharma. But whatever you use, you are using a word which means knowingness. Dhyana—that’s knowingness. It means knowingness. It means lookingness. (7ACC-25, 5407C19) 2. Dhyana could be literally translated as Indian for Scn, if you want to say it
backwards. (7ACC-25, 5407C19)

DIANAZENE, a formula combined with vitamins and other minerals to make the intake of nicotine acid more effective. Dianazene runs out radiation—or what appears to be radiation. It also proofs a person up against radiation in some degree. It also turns on and runs out incipient cancer. (AAR, pp. 123-124)

DIANETIC ASSESSMENT LIST, a l i s t of somatic items given by a pc and written down by the auditor with the reads marked that occur on the meter. (BTB 7 Nov 72 IV)

DIANETIC ASSIST, 1 . the auditor may take an individual who has been injured and run the injury as an engram even though it contains extensive unconsciousness. The last engram on the case has had relatively little chance to become charged up by locks and secondaries, and so is available for auditing regardless of the pre- existing engrams on the case. (SOS, Bk. 2, p. 157) 2 . running out the physically painful experience the person has just undergone, accidents, illness, operation or emotional shock. This erases the “psychic trauma” and speeds recovery to a remarkable degree. (HCOB 2 Apr 69)

DIANETIC AUDITING, 1 . the application of Dn procedures to an individual to help him become well and happy. (DPB, p. 11) 2 . the tracing of experience. (SH Spec 70, 6607C21) 3 . Dianetic auditing includes as its basic principle, the exhaustion of all the painfully unconscious moments of a subject’s life. By eradicating pain from the life of an individual, the auditor returns the individual to complete rationality and sanity. (DTOT, p. 68)

DIANETIC AUDITOR, 1 . a person capable of resolving mental and physical problems by his ability to find and run engrams and secondaries. (HCOB 6 Apr 69) 2 . a Dianetics auditor would use Dn to handle the lack of well-being of the pc. (HCOB 6 Apr 69 II) 3 . one who has had case gain on Dn, and has been able to administer Dn so as to give case gains with it and that is what a Dianetic auditor is. It is not somebody who has been through the check-sheets a large number of times or somebody who knows the Director of Certs and Awards. (6905C29)

DIANETIC CASE COMPLETION, 1 . a l l s o m a t i c c h a i n s t h a t w e r e i n re-stimulation have been traced to basic and blown. The pc is now happy and healthy. Other engrams and chains can exist back on the track but as they are not in re-stimulation they have no effect on the person. (Dn Today, p. 63) 2 . a healthy, happy, high IQ human being; freedom from those things which make a person susceptible to, or “hold in place” physical illness. (Scn 0-8, p. 137)

DIANETIC CLEAR, 1 . there is such a state. Only about two per cent actually go clear on Dn. A Dn Clear as any other Dn pc now goes on up through the grades of Scn and onto the proper Clearing Course. The Dn Clear of Book I was clear of somatics. The Book I definition is correct. This is the end phenomena of Dn as per the class chart and Book I. Two percent, no more, make Dn Clear accidentally. They still need expanded lower grades to make Scn Clear. (HCOB 25 Jun 70 II) See also

DIANETIC CASE COMPLETION. DIANETIC COUNSELING GROUP, the Dn Counseling Group consists of in full action, Hubbard Dn Counselors, the administrative few people, even if only part time, to handle the admin of the unit, and a Hubbard Dn Graduate in order to teach Hubbard Dn Counselors out in the field, and a Scn auditor to hold down review. (6905C29) Abbr. DCG.

DIANETIC FLOW TABLE, a chronological list of Dn items run, from earliest to latest, with the f l o w s that have been run. (HCOB 3 Nov 72R)

DIANETIC INFORMATION GROUP, a group formed to provide information on the results of Dn and its applications. The membership is open to doctors, dental surgeons, pharmacists and qualified nurses. (STCR, p. 104) Abbr. D.I.G.

DIANETICIST, a skilled user of Dianetic therapy. (DTOT Gloss)

DIANETIC LIST, in Scn lists there’s only one item. On D n l i s t s there can be a dozen, for a Dn list isn’t really a list. It isn’t trying to isolate the mental troubles of the pc. A Dn list is simply the pc’s physical aches and pains. (HCOB 21 May 69)

DIANETIC PRECLEAR, one who is being processed toward the objective of a well and happy human being. (HCOB 6 Apr 69)

DIANETIC RELEASE, 1. the release has reached a point where he no longer has psychosomatic illnesses, where he has good stability and where he can enjoy life. If one simply took all the secondary engrams off a case, one would have a Dianetic Release. (SOS, p. 19) 2 . a preclear in whom the majority of emotional stress has been deleted from the reactive mind. Has had many large gains from Dn, is not yet a Dn Case Completion. (DTOT Gloss)

DIANETIC REVERIE, see REVERIE. DIANETICS, 1 . DIA (Greek) through, NOUS (Greek) soul deals with a system of mental image pictures in relation to psychic (spiritual) trauma. The mental image pictures are believed on the basis of personal revelation to be comprising mental activity created and formed by the spirit, and not by the body or brain. (BPL 24 Sept 73 V) 2 . Dn addresses the body. Thus Dn is used to knock out and erase illnesses, unwanted sensations, misemotion, somatics, pain, etc. Dn came before Scn. It disposed of body illness and the difficulties a thetan was having with his body. (HCOB 22 Apr 69) 3 . a technology that runs and erases locks, secondaries and engrams and their chains. (HCOB 17 Apr 69) 4 . Dn could be called a study of man. Dn and Scn, up to the point of stable exteriorization, operate in exactly the same field with exactly the same tools. It is only after man is sufficiently exteriorized to become a spirit that we depart from Dn; for here, considering man as a spirit, we must enter the field of religion. (PAB 42) 5 . a precision science. It stems from the study and codification of survival. (COHA, p. 148) 6 . a system of coordinated axioms which resolve problems concerning human behavior and psychosomatic illnesses. (5110CM08B) 7 . Dn is not psychiatry. It is not psycho- analysis. It is not psychology. It is not personal relations. It is not hypnotism. It is a science of mind. (DMSMH, p. 168) 8 . the route from aberrated or aberrated and ill human to capable human. (HCOB 3 Apr 66) Abbr. Dn.


DIANOMETRY, 1 . that branch of Dn which measures thought capacity, computational ability and the rationality of the human mind. By its axioms and tests can be established the intelligence, the persistence., the ability, the aberrations and existing or potential insanity of an individual. (DASF) 2 . “Thought measurement,” derived from the Greek for thought, and, unscholarly enough, the Latin for mensuration. (DASF) DICHOTOMY, 1. can-can’t is the plus and minus aspect of all thought and in Scn is called by a specialized word, dichotomy. (FOT, p. 100) 2 . a pair of opposites, such as black-white, good-evil, love-hate. (COHA Gloss) 3 . opposites; two things which when interplayed, cause action. (5209CM04B)

DIFFERENTIATION, 1 . the ability to locate things in time and space. (5209CM04B) 2 . simply the distance between the particles. (PDC 28)

DIFFERENTIATIVE DEFINITION, see DEFINITIONS, TYPES OF. D . I . G . , Dianetic Information Group. (STCR, p. 104)

DILETTANTISM, is supposed to mean good at many things, but actually I would rather extend its meaning a little bit to saying unprofessional at everything. (SH Spec 33, 6408C04)

DIMENSION, the distance from the point of view to the anchor point that is in space. (Spr Lect 14, 5304CM07)

DIMENSION POINT, any point in a space or at the boundaries of space. As a specialized case, those points which demark the outermost boundaries of the space or its corners are called in Scn anchor points. (Scn 8-8008, p. 16) DINKY DICTIONARIES, (dinky: small, insignificant); in learning the meaning of words small dictionaries are very often a greater liability than they are a help. The meanings they give are often circular. Like “CAT: an animal.” “ANIMAL: a cat.” They do not give enough meaning to escape the circle. The meanings given are often inadequate to get a real concept of the word. The words are too few and even common words are often missing. (HCOB 19 Jun 72) DIP, a falling needle.

(PAB 12)

DIRECTIVE LISTING, that Routine 3 activity which directs the pc’s attention while listing to the form of the inevitable reliable item, providing it can be predicted. (HCOB 8 Apr 63)

DIRECT STYLE AUDITING, (Level IV style), by direct we mean straight, concentrated, intense, applied in a direct manner. By direct, we don’t mean frank or choppy. On the contrary, we put the pc’s attention on his bank and anything we do is calculated only to make that attention more direct. (HCOB 6 Nov 64)

DIRECT VALENCE, a valence by which the pc has transferred identity with someone who has directly confronted him. (PAB 95) DIR EXAMS, Director of Examinations. (HCOB 23 Aug 65) DIR REV, Director of Review. (HCOB 23 Aug 65)

DIR TECH SERVICES, Director of Technical Services. (HCOB 23 Aug 65)

DIRTY NEEDLE, 1 . symbol D.N.—erratic agitation of the needle which covers less than a quarter of an inch of the E-meter dial and tends to be persistent. (HCOB 8 Nov 62) 2 . ragged, jerky, ticking needle, not sweeping. (HC()B 15 May 69) 3 . a dirty needle is any needle which departs from the appearance of a clean needle. (SH Spec 224, 6212C13) 4. a dirty needle is only a little, tiny persistent rock slam. (SH Spec 184, 6208C14) 5 . one that jerks, tips, dances, halts, is stuck or has any random action on it with the auditor sitting looking at it doing nothing. (HCOB 30 Dec 62)

DIRTY READ, symbol D.R.—a more or less instant response of the needle which is agitated by a major thought; it is an instant tiny (less than a quarter of an inch) agitation of the needle and is in fact a very small cousin of a rock slam but is not a rock slam. It does not persist. (HCOB 8 Nov 62)

DIRTY 30, Opening Procedure by Duplication has been doing things to cases hitherto untouched by extensive and intricate auditing. Because this process is very arduous to run on people below boredom on the tone scale and because it has very often been used on people on whom it should not be used, it was early called “Dirty 30.” Actually “Dirty 30” is Procedure 30 which encompassed what is now R2-17 and two other steps. (PAB 48)

DISAGREEMENT REMEDY, a procedure for handling disagreements which is done by a Class III or above auditor. (BTB 22 Mar 72R)

DISASSOCIATION, mis-identification. (17ACC-4, 5702C28) DISCHARGED, 1 . an incident which is discharged is no longer capable of re-stimulation. It is not now an inert incident, it is a gone incident. The batteries in it have been short-circuited. That’s the end of it. (SH Spec 300, 6308C28) 2 . where you get a condition of re-stimulation which is then let off, that is not discharged, it is destimulated. Discharged means that the incident is now incapable of being restimulated. (SH Spec 300, 6308C28)

DISCHARGING, erasing. (SH Spec 300, 6308C28) DISHONESTY, one would not be dishonest unless he wished to seek advantage for himself or his group at the expense of some other self or group. That’s dishonesty. It is seeking an illegitimate advantage and it’s illegitimate just because it violates somebody’s survival too much. (5108CM13B)

DISINTEGRATING ROCKET READ, a read that starts out like a mad thing, and turns into a fall. (SH Spec 274, 6306C13)

DISPERSAL, a series of outflows from a common point. A dispersal is, primarily a number of flows extending from a common center. The best example of a dispersal is an explosion. There is such a thing as an in-dispersal. This would be where the flows are all traveling toward a common center. One might call this an implosion. Outflow and inflow from a common center are classified under the word dispersal. (Scn 8-8008, p. 17)

DISPERSED, hiding oneself, being vague, not there most of the time. (FOT, p. 29)

DISPERSION, theta turning into entheta and the inhibition of the flow of free theta. (SOS, p. 114)

DISSEMINATING SCN, getting the materials of Dn and Scn disseminated widely and by efficient presentation. (BPL 15 Mar 60)

DISTRACTION, a distraction is something that is not relevant to the pc’s case and is ineffective. (SH Spec 78, 6111C09)

DIVISION OF TA, one division of TA is from 1 to 2 or similarly from 2 to 3 . It doesn’t matter which way it moves. (SH Spec 1, 6105C07)

(HCOB 17 May 69) D O A B U N K , 1 . an English slang term which meant “run away or desert.” (7204C07 SO III) 2 . the body goes collapse; the heart is still beating, the lungs are still breathing, because the G.E. runs those, but the thetan—he’s done a bunk. (PDC 9) 3 . that’s what we say colloquially, means on his way over the hills and far away and he’s just now passing Galaxy 18 . (PDC 46) 4 . the person shoots out of his head and he’s on his way. He hit the dispersal just adjacent to a ridge. (PDC 23)

DOCTOR OF DIVINITY, religion is basically a philosophic teaching designed to better the civilization into which it is taught. Backed fully by the precedent of all the ages concerning teachings, a Scientologist has a better right to call himself a priest, a minister, a missionary, a d o c t o r o f d i v i n i t y , a faith healer or a preclear than any other man who bears the insignia of religion of the western world. I do not see any inconsistency of any kind in the issuance to those well- schooled and well-skilled in Scn the degree of Doctor of Divinity as a passport into those areas where they are needed. (PAB 32)

DOCTOR OF SCIENTOLOGY, 1 . the Doctor of Scn degree is senior to HGA. It is an honor award and may be made by nomination or selection for those who are consistently producing excellent results in their own field. (PAB 6) 2 . Doctor of Scn abroad [away from the USA] was equivalent to HGA in 1956 . (HCOTB 12 Sept 56)

DOCTRINE OF THE STABLE DATUM, a confusing motion can be understood by conceiving one thing to be motionless. Until one selects one datum, one factor, one particular in a confusion of particles, the confusion continues. The one thing selected and used becomes the stable datum for the remainder. A stable datum does not have to be the correct one. It is simply the one that keeps things from being in a confusion and on which others are aligned. (POW, pp. 23-24)

D O F ESTIMATIONS, Director of Estimations. In 1965, head of the Department of Estimations, now called Tech Services which is in charge of getting pcs to session, having auditing rooms and materials available for auditors, keeping up pcs’ status and scheduling boards, and taking care of and safeguarding pc folders and records. (PRD Gloss) D OF P, Director of Processing. (HCOB 23 Aug 65) D OF T, Director of Training. (HCOB 23 Aug 65) DOG CASE, Slang. 1 . a case nobody can make anything out of. (HCOB 5 Mar 71 II) 2 . the pc is not running well. Such a c a s e is the result of a flub always. (HCOB 19 Mar 71, C/S Series 30) DOG PC, an auditor who cannot audit, whose TRs are out, whose metering is bad and who never keeps the code always says his pcs are “dogs.” (HCOB 15 Jun 72) DOING, the action of creating an effect. An effect in creation is action. (FOT, p. 31)

DOING A BUNK, see DO A BUNK. DOINGNESS, what one ought to be doing in order to get creation or do creation. (SH Spec 19, 6106C23) DOING THE FOLDER, refers to the technical supervision of case reports. (ISE, p. 45)

DO-IT-YOURSELF PROCESSING, the HAS co-audit which seeks to improve cases and further interest people in Scn so that they will take individual HGC processing and individual training. (HCO PL 14 Feb 61)

DOMINATION, forcing the other person to do exactly what is desired with the mechanism of recrimination and denial of friendship or support unless instant compliance takes place. It seeks by anger and outright criticism, accusations, and other mechanisms to pound another individual into submission by making him less. (SA, p. 167)

DOMINATION BY NULLIFICATION, this is covert and quite often the person upon whom it is exerted remains unsuspecting beyond the fact that he knows he is very unhappy. This is the coward’s method of domination. The person using it feels that he is less than the individual upon whom he is using it and has not the honesty or fortitude to admit the fact to himself. He then begins to pull the other individual “down to size,” using small carping criticisms. The one who is seeking to dominate strikes heavily at the point of pride and capability of his target and yet, if at any moment the target challenges the nullifier, the person using the mechanism claims he is doing so solely out of assistance and friendship or disavows completely that it has been done. (SA, p. 167) DOPE-OFF, 1 . the phenomenon of a person getting tired, sleepy, foggy (as though doped ). One of the phenomena of going past a misunderstood word. (BTB 12 Apr 72) 2 . a state of lessened awareness, still above unconsciousness, and manifested principally by communication lag. Dope-off is also caused by impaired havingness. (COHA Gloss)

DOUBLE ACKNOWLEDGMENT, 1. double acknowledgment is not, repeat not, the giving of more than one good or thank you. Double acknowledgment only occurs when the auditor assumes the cycle has ended but the preclear then draws the auditor’s attention to the fact that it didn’t end and the auditor has to acknowledge again in order to end that cycle. (BTB 29 Jun 62) 2 . this occurs when the pc answers up, the auditor then acknowledges, and the pc then finishes his answer, leaving the auditor with another acknowledgment to do. (HCOB 12 Nov 59) 3 . multiple acks (such as “OK Good.” and “All right Thank you OK.”) are not OK and must be knocked out by drilling the auditor so he learns to ack with one ack. TR 2 repeated makes an overack. (BTB 13 Mar 75)

DOUBLE ASSESS, (Expanded Dianetics term from tape 7203C30, “Expanded Dianetics”) the act of taking various parts or terminals of the pc’s environment as mentioned in worksheets or health form such as “home,” “job,” “Ohio,” etc., making it into a list, assessing it for best read (assessment number one ) and then taking that item (such as “home”) and listing out the pains, sensations, emotions and attitudes connected with it (assessment number 2) and running it with Dianetics, or otherwise using the result in processing. (LRH Def. Notes)

DOUBLE QUESTION, a type of Q and A. The auditor asks a question. The pc answers. The auditor asks a question about the answer. (HCOB 24 May 62)

DOUBLE TERMINALING, 1 . the process known as double terminaling is an assist. One double terminals as follows: he has the preclear mock up something or someone facing its duplicate, then he gets another such pair beside, in any position, the first pair. It will be noted that the mock-ups discharge one against the other like electrical poles. A double terminal may also consist of an unmatched pair such as a mock-up of a husband facing a wife and, parallel to this, the husband facing the wife again. Or a person facing an inanimate object, then, beside that pair, the same person as another mock-up facing the same object as another mock-up. It will be observed that when TWO pairs are used, there are, even so, only TWO COMMUNICATION LINES. The lines are more important than the terminals; one wants two communication lines, parallel to each other. This, of course, requires four terminals. (PAB 1) 2 . double terminaling simply puts up two pairs of matched terminals. The pairs may each be of two different things but each pair contains one thing the same as the other pair; in other words, husband and wife is one pair and husband and wife is the other pair. These, parallel, give the two terminal effect necessary for a discharge. (COHA, p. 213) 3 . there are a number of processes which could include double terminals. One terminal made to face another terminal in terms of mock-up can be discharged one against the other in such a way as to relieve aberration connected with things similar to the terminal thus mocked up. One takes two pairs of such terminals and standing them in relationship to each other, discovers that he has now four terminals but these four terminals furnish only two lines. These two lines will discharge one against the other. (Scn 8-8008, p. 32) DOUBLE TERMINALS, you mock up four of the same person or two of one person, two of another person, in such a way as to give you four terminals with an identical line. (Spr Lect 13, 5304CM07) DOUBLE TICK, dirty needle. (HCOB 25 May 62) DOUBT, doubting expresses the inability to find out. (SH Spec 39, 6108C15)

DOWN-BOUNCER, this type of phrase is one which tells the person to “get down” or “get back” and keeps the preclear below the actual incident in which he is held. (SOS, p. 106) DOWN SCALE, on the tone scale to go down scale one must decrease his power to observe. (COHA, p. 200)

DOWN THE TRACK, not in present time. (HCOB 16 Jul 69) D . R . , dirty read. (HCOB 23 Aug 65)

DRAMATIZATION, 1 . to repeat in action what has happened to one in experience. That’s a basic definition of it, but much more important, it’s a replay now of something that happened then. It’s being replayed out of its time and period. (SH Spec 72, 6607C28) 2 . the duplication of an engramic content, entire or in part, by an aberree in his present time environment. Aberrated conduct is entirely dramatization. The degree of dramatization is in direct ratio to the degree of re-stimulation of the engrams causing it. (DTOT, p. 74) 3 . complete dramatization is complete identity. It is the engram in full force in present time with the aberree taking one or more parts of the dramatis personae present in the engram. (DTOT, p. 75) 4 . thinking or acting in a manner that is dictated by masses or significances contained in the reactive mind. When dramatizing, the individual is like an actor playing his dictated part and going through a whole series of irrational actions. (PXL Gloss)

DRAMATIZE, to go through the cycle of action demanded by an engram. (SOS, Bk. 2, p. 29)

DRAMATIZING PSYCHOTIC, the dramatizing psychotic is not always looked upon as insane. Whether or not he is classified as insane depends upon whether or not he is of obvious menace to other Homo sapiens. He is fixed in one facsimile which he plays over and over to the environment around him. He is controlled by his environment to the extent that anything in his environment turns on his dramatization. He is disastrous to have around. Inaccessible persons passing for normals are sometimes dramatizing psychotics who dramatize infrequently—perhaps only once or twice a day. The dramatizing psychotic lives mainly in the illusion of his own facsimile with its surroundings, not actual surroundings. He is definitely not in present time at any time. (AP&A, p. 38)

DREAM, 1 . a pretended knowingness about location. (SH Spec 50, 6109C06) 2 . the imaginative reconstruction of areas of randomity or the re-symbolization of the efforts of theta. (Scn 0-8, p. 90) 3 . a dream in its normal function is that powerful and original mechanism called the imagination compositing or creating new pictures. (DTOT, p. 89) 4 . a frantic effort to orient, just to locate himself so that he can feel secure, that’s what a dream is and a dream of course is pretended knowingness because he is at none of these places. (SH Spec 39, 6108C15) 5 . dreams follow a sudden loss. It’s an effort to orient oneself and get something back. (HCOB 29 Mar 65)

DRIFT DOWN, not actual tone arm action. The pc is just drifting toward the read of an item. In this the tone arm does not go up or down, back and forth. It just drifts slowly and evenly down and stays there. (HCOB 11 Apr 62) D R I F T U P , occurs during prepchecking or listing. The constantly rising needle gradually raises the tone arm up to a high read which finally just stays there. This drift up is not actually tone arm motion. It is just the pc’s refusal to confront. (HCOB 11 Apr 62) DRILLS, exercises, processes. (PAB 82)

DRIVE, the dynamic thrust through time toward the attainment of the goal. (DTOT, p. 29) DROP, a falling needle. (EME, p. 14) See FALL.

DRUG C A S E S , c a s e s who seek in processing the delusions or madness which exhilarated them on drugs. (HCOB 25 Nov 71 II)


DRUG RUNDOWN, the drug rundown consists of: (1) TRs 0-4, 6-9 FLAT. (2) Full C/S 1, where not done, to fully educate the pc. (3) Objectives—full battery to full EPs per basic books and early HCOBs on them. (4) Class VIII Drug Handling—list and rehab all drugs, 3-way recalls, secondaries and engrams of taking and giving drugs. (5) AESP’s on each reading drug listed separately and handled with R3R, each drug to full F/N assessment of d r u g list. (6) “No interest” d r u g items—all reading ones run where they exist. (7) Prior assessment— AESP’s listed separately and run R3R, prior to first d r u g or alcohol taken. (HCOB 31 Aug 74) DRUGS, 1. by drugs (to mention a few) are meant tranquilizers, opium, cocaine, marihuana, peyote, amphetamine and the psychiatrists’ gift to Man, LSD which is the worst. Any medical d r u g s are included. D r u g s a r e d r u g s . There are thousands of trade names and slang terms for these drugs. Alcohol is included as a drug and receives the same treatment in auditing. (HCOB 15 Jul 71 III) 2 . drugs essentially are poisons. The degree they are taken determines the effect. A small amount gives a stimulant. A greater amount acts as a sedative. A larger amount acts as a poison and can kill one dead. This is true of any drug. (HCOB 28 Aug 68 II)

(HCOB 15 May 63) 2 . the phrase out of the motion picture industry of putting a sound track on top of something that isn’t there . ( SH Spec 78, 6608C25) 3 . a recording which is being manufactured by a recording. (5811C07) 4 . imaginary recall—there is no pain dub-in. (DASF)

DWINDLING ROCK SLAM, one which diminishes item by item, written thing by written thing. It’s less and less and less and less, and finally a dirty needle. Then there isn’t even a dirty needle and it’s gone. (SH Spec 194, 6209C25)

DWINDLING SANITY, a dwindling ability to assign time and space. (Scn 8-80, p. 44) DWINDLING SPIRAL, 1 . one commits overt acts unwittingly. He seeks to justify them by finding fault or displacing blame. This leads him into further overts against the same terminals which leads to a degradation of himself and sometimes those terminals. (HCOB 21 Jan 60, Justification) 2 . as life progresses, more and more theta becomes fixed as entheta in locks and secondary engrams, and less and less theta is available to the organism for purposes of reason. This is called the dwindling spiral. It is so called because the more entheta there is on the case, the more theta will be turned into entheta at each new re-stimulation. It is a three-dimensional vicious circle which carries the individual down the tone scale. (SOS, Bk. 2, p. 26)

DYNAMIC, 1 . any one of the eight subdivisions of the dynamic principle of existence—SURVIVE. (PXL, p. 49) 2 . dynamic is the ability to translate solutions into action. (HFP, p. 171) 3 . the tenacity to life and vigor and persistence in survival. (DMSMH, p. 38)

DYNAMIC ASSESSMENT, you run on the E-meter a dynamic assessment and pick up any dynamic that gives a change of needle pattern or take any dynamic which makes needle drop no matter how slight. Having located the dynamic we now ask the pc for any terminal he or she thinks would represent that dynamic. (HCOB 4 Feb 60)

DYNAMIC ASSESSMENT BY ROCK SLAM, listing and assessing to find the rock slam on the pc. (SH Spec 204, 6210C30) D Y N A M I C D E F I N I T I O N , a c t i o n d e f i n i t i o n . (5110CM08B) See DEFINITIONS, TYPES OF.

DYNAMICS, there could be said to be eight urges (drives, impulses) in life. These we call dynamics. These are motives or motivations. We call them the eight dynamics. The first dynamic —is the urge toward existence as one’s self. Here we have individuality expressed fully. This can be called the s e l f dynamic. The
second dynamic—is the urge toward existence as a sexual or bisexual activity. This dynamic actually has two divisions. Second dynamic (a) is the sexual act itself and the second dynamic (b) is the family unit, including the rearing of children. This can be called the s e x d y n a m i c . The third dynamic—is the urge toward existence in groups of individuals. Any group or part of an entire class could be considered to be a part of the third dynamic. The school, the society, the town, the nation are each part of the third dynamic, and each one is a third dynamic. This can be called the group dynamic. The fourth dynamic—is the urge toward existence as mankind. Whereas the white race would be considered a third dynamic, all the races would be considered the fourth dynamic. This can be called the mankind dynamic. The fifth dynamic—is the urge toward existence of the animal kingdom. This includes all living things whether vegetable or animal. The fish in the sea, the beasts of the field or of the forest, grass, trees, flowers, or anything directly and intimately motivated by life. This could be called the animal dynamic. The sixth dynamic—is the urge toward existence as the physical universe. The physical universe is composed of matter, energy, space and time. In Scn we take the first letter of each of these words and coin a word, mest. This can be called the universe dynamic. The seventh dynamic—is the urge toward existence as or of spirits. Anything spiritual, with or without identity, would come under the heading of the seventh dynamic. This can be called the spiritual dynamic. The eighth dynamic—is the urge toward existence as infinity. This is also identified as the Supreme Being. It is carefully observed here that the science of Scn does not intrude into the dynamic of the Supreme Being. This is called the eighth dynamic because the symbol of infinity oo stood upright makes the numeral “8 .” This can be called the infinity or God dynamic. (FOT, pp. 36-38)

DYNAMIC STRAIGHTWIRE, do a survey, one time on the pc, not every session, to discover any errors in his dynamics. On pcs not familiar with Scn terms use the following words: self, sex, family, children, groups, mankind, the animal kingdom, birds, beasts, fish, vegetables, trees, growing things, matter, energy, space, time, spirits, souls, gods, God. Assess with this question only, “Tell me something that would represent (each of the above, one after the other).” When one changes the pattern of the needle action or when it is definitely balmy, write it down. When list is completed take these items written down and run: “Think of something you have done to (selected terminal you wrote down).” “Think of something you have withheld from (selected terminal, same one).” Run these terminals one each, one after the other, until pc seems flat. (HCOB 16 Feb 59) e
