Dictionary I J K L

IATROGENIC, means illness generated by doctors. An operation during which the doctor’s knife slipped, and accidentally harmed the patient might cause an iatrogenic illness or injury since the fault would have been with the surgeons. (DMSMN, p. 172)

ICDS, International Congress of Dianeticists and Scientologists. (HCOB 29 Sept 66)

IDEAL STATE, what do we mean by an ideal state. A state somebody wanted to be in over which he had full power of choice. That would be an ideal state. (SH Spec 273, 6306C12)

IDENTIFICATION, 1. the inability to evaluate differences in time, location, form, composition, or importance. ( SOS, p. 153) 2. identification is a monotone assignment of importance. (SOS, p. 153) 3 . the lowest level of reasoning is complete inability to differentiate, which is to say, identification. (SOS, p.153) 4 . Duplicating in one space continually, is in itself identification. (2ACC-25B, 5312CM17) ILL, being medically diagnosed as suffering from a known, well defined physical illness susceptible to medical care and relief. (HCO PL 6 Oct 58) I L L U S I O N , 1 . a surface manifestation which disappears when experience is consulted. (SH Spec 70, 6607C21) 2 . a product of the actual.

IMAGINARY VISIO, the scenery imagination constructs. (SOS, p. 72) See DUB-IN.

IMAGINATION, 1. the recombination of things one has sensed, thought or intellectually computed into existence, which do not necessarily have existence. This is the mind’s method of envisioning desirable goals or forecasting futures. (DMSMH, p. 14) 2 . the ability to create or forecast a future or to create, change or destroy a present or past. (Scn 8-8008, p. 7) 3 . if you take the word imagination apart, you will discover that it means merely the postulating of images or the assembly of perceptions into creations as you desire them. (SA, p. 158)

IMMORTALITY, infinite survival, the absolute goal of survival. The individual seeks this on the first dynamic as an organism and as a theta entity and in the perpetuation of his name by his group. On the second dynamic he seeks it through children and so on through the eight dynamics. Life survives through the persistence of theta. A species survives through the persistence of the life in it. A culture survives through the persistence of the species using it. There is evidence that the theta of an individual may survive as a personal entity from life to life through many lives on earth. (SOS Gloss)

IMPACT, cause and effect simultaneously. (PAB 30) IMPLANT, 1. a painful and forceful means of overwhelming a being with artificial purpose or false concepts in a malicious attempt to control and suppress him. (Aud 71 ASHO) 2 . an electronic means of overwhelming the thetan with a significance. (HCOB 8 May 63) 3 . an unwilling and unknowing receipt of a thought. An intentional installation of fixed ideas, contrasurvival to the thetan. (SH Spec 83, 6612C06)

IMPLANT GOAL, an implanted goal—a goal the thetan himself has not decided upon—but which has been induced in him by overwhelming force or persuasion. (HCOB 13 Apr 64, Scn VI Part One Glossary of Terms)

IMPLANT GPM, an implanted goal problem mass. An electronic means of overwhelming the thetan with a signficance using the mechanics of the actual pattern of living to entrap the thetan and force obedience to behavior patterns. (HCOB 13 Apr 64, Scn VI Part One Glossary of Terms)

IMPLOSION, something that could be likened to the collapse of a field of energy such as a sphere toward a common center point, making an inflow. It can happen with the same violence as an explosion; but does not necessarily do so. (Scn 8- 8008, p. 49)

IMPORTANCE, is mass. In thinkingness when you say importance you mean mass. (SH Spec 39, 6108C15) I N , things which should be there and are or should be done and are, are said to be “in”; i.e. “We got scheduling in.” (HCOB 19 Jun 71 III)

INACCESSIBLE CASE, that person who is bound and determined to stay sick, who won’t talk to you, will have nothing to do with being healed in any way, is an inaccessible case. (5011C22)

INADVERTENT WITHHOLD, 1. the pc thinks he is withholding because the auditor didn’t hear or acknowledge. (HCOB 13 Sept 65) 2 . he didn’t intend to w i t h h o l d it, just nobody would acknowledge it. He never intended to withhold it at all. An inadvertent withhold will cause very near the same phenomenon as an actual withhold. (SH Spec 60, 6506Cll)

INCIDENT, an experience, simple or complex, related by the same subject, location, perception or people that takes place in a short and finite time period such as minutes, hours or days; also, mental image pictures of such experiences. (HCOB 12 Dec 71 IX)

INCREDIBLE CHAIN, it’s the things that have happened on his track which are, to him, incredible. And because they are so incredible he doesn’t believe them, and neither does anybody else. But it’s most because nobody else believed them. And he doesn’t believe them himself so the chain itself remains hidden because it’s incredible; the incredible chain. (ESTO 5, 7203C03 SO I) I N D , “Ind” for indicated to pc. (HCOB 26 Jun 71)

INDICATOR, a condition or circumstance arising in a session which indicates whether the session is running well or badly. (HCOB 28 Dec 63) 2 . the little flag sticking out that shows there is a possible situation underneath that needs attention. (HCO PL 15 May 70 II)

INDICATORS, those manifestations in a person or group that indicate whether it is doing well or poorly, signal an approaching change, or show that the auditing process has reached the desired end point. (HCOB 20 Feb 70)

IN-DISPERSAL, where the flows are all traveling toward a common center. One might call this an implosion. (Scn 8-8008, pp. 17-18)

INDIVIDUAL, 1. an individual is a collection of “memories” going back to his first appearance on earth. In other words, he is the composite of all his facsimiles plus his impulse to be. Individuality depends upon facsimiles. (HFP, p. 111) 2 . somebody who is operating in coordination with himself twenty-four hours a day. That’s an individual. An organism which is unhappy, aberrated, is an organism which is working at cross purposes with itself twenty-four hours a day. (5110CMllB) 3 . when we say the individual we are talking about something as precise as an apple. We are not talking about a collection of behavior patterns which we all learned about in the study of rats. We are talking about something that is finite. We are talking about somebody. The somethingness that you are and the capabilities you can be and this is what we are talking about. We are not talking about the color of your hair or the length of your feet. We are talking about you. (Abil Mi 5)

INDIVIDUATION, a separation from knowingness. (5203CMlOB) INDOC, indoctrination. (HCOB 10 Apr 57)

INERT INCIDENT, 1. an incident which is an inert incident is not having any effect on the pc. It’s not part of his aberrative picture. (SH Spec 300, 6308C28) 2. an incident, unrestimulated. (SH Spec 300, 6308C28)

IN ETHICS, see ETHICS, Def. 5 . INFINITY SYMBOL, oo. As seen in some Scientology books, stood upright—8 . (HCOB 23 Aug 65)

INFINITY-VALUED LOGIC, in Dn, there is a new way of thinking about things which underlies a great deal of its technology. Instead of two-valued logic or three-valued logic we have infinity-valued logic. Here is a gradient scale which permits no absolute at either end. In other words, there is not an absolute right and an absolute wrong, just as there is no absolute stillness and no absolute motion. Of course, it is one of the tenets of Dn that absolutes are not attainable but only approachable. (SOS, Bk. 2, pp. 249-250) See also LOGIC.

INSANE , 1 . the truly insane cannot control or withhold their evil impulses and dramatize them at least covertly. The insane are not always visible. But they are visible enough. And they are malicious. (HCOB 10 May 72) 2 . having been pronounced insane by a psychiatrist or being incapable of any responsibility for social conduct. (HCO PL 6 Oct 58)

INSANE CERTAINTY, would be no certainty at all, or a certainty asserted by only one or two people and disagreed with by all others. (Cert, Vol. 10, No. 12) INSANE PC, by insane pc is meant one who is subject to highly irrational and destructive behavior. (HCO PL 12 Jun 69)

INSANITY, 1. the overt or covert but always complex and continuous determination to harm or destroy. (HCOB 28 Nov 70) 2 . i n s a n i t y is most often the suppressed agony of actual physical illness and injury. (HCOB 2 Apr 69) 3 . the obsessive adaptation of a solution to the exclusion of all other solutions in the absence of a problem . ( SH Spec 27X, 6107C04) 4 . the inability to associate or differentiate properly. (Scn 8-8008, p. 44) 5. insanity is an emotion which is brought about by the compulsion to reach and the inhibition not to reach or the compulsion not to reach and the inhibition to reach. (2ACC-18A, 5312CM08) 6 . the best definition of which I know would be: the person widely believes that the symbols are the things. (PDC 20) 7. insanity is an individual assisting things which inhibit survival and destroying things which assist survival. (5109CM24A) 8 . if an individual is incapable of adjusting himself to his environment so as to get along with or obey or command his fellows, or, more importantly, if he is incapable of adjusting his environment, then he can be considered to be “insane.” But it is a relative term. (DMSMH, p. 380) 9 . the point between where a person who is sane goes thereafter insane is very precise. It’s the exact point at which he begins to stop something. At that moment he is insane. At first he is insane on that one subject; then he can get another idea fixe and become insane on another subject, thus getting cumulative insanity. But there is no doubt of his insanity on that one subject, something that he is trying to stop. (6711C18SO) 1 0 . i n s a n i t y itself is simply must reach—can’t reach, must withdraw—can’t withdraw. (SH Spec 98, 6201C10)

IN-SCANNING, taking energy manifestations that were in the incident as they flowed in toward the preclear. That’s in-scanning. That’s environment to the preclear in the incident. (5203CM04B)

IN SESSION, the definition of in session is interested in own case and willing to talk to the auditor. When this definition describes the session in progress, then of course the pc will be able to as-is and will cognite. (HCOB 26 Apr 73 I)

INSTANT READ, 1. that reaction of the needle which occurs at the precise end of any major thought voiced by the auditor. (HCOB 25 May 62) 2 . if the needle reacts within 1/5 to 1/10 of a second after the question is asked, it is an instant read. This is valid. If it reacts 1/2 to 1 second after the question, this is invalid. (HCOB 28 Sept 61)

INSTANT ROCK SLAM, that “rock slam” which begins at the end of the major thought of any item. Symbol IRS. (HCOB 8 Nov 62)

INSTANT RUDIMENT READ, o n rudiments, repetitive or fast, the instant read can occur anywhere within the last word of the question or when the thought major has been anticipated by the preclear, and must be taken up by the auditor. This is not a prior read. Preclears poorly in session, being handled by auditors with indifferent TR-l, anticipate the instant read reactively as they are under their own control. Such a read occurs in the body of the last meaningful word in the question. It never occurs latent. (EMD, p. 37) INST CONF, Instructors’ Conference. (HCOB 29 Sept 66)

INSTITUTIONALIZED, having been committed to a public or private institution for the insane. (HCO PL 6 Oct 58) IN TECH, when t e c h i s i n , we mean that Scn is being applied and is being correctly applied. (HCOB 13 Sept 65) INTEG, Integrity. (BPL 5 Nov 72RA)

INTEGRITY, ( 1 . ) the condition of having no part or element taken away or wanting; undivided or unbroken state; wholeness. ( 2 . ) the condition of not being marred or violated; unimpaired or uncorrupted condition; soundness. ( 3 . ) soundness or moral principle; the character of uncorrupted virtue, especially in relation to truth and fair dealing; uprightness, honesty, sincerity. (BTB 4 Dec 72)

INTEGRITY PROCESSING, that processing which enables a person, within the reality of his own moral codes and those of the group, to reveal his overts so he no longer requires to withhold and so enhances his own integrity and that of the group. (BTB 4 Dec 72) Abbr. IP.

INTELLIGENCE, 1 . is the ability to recognize differences, similarities and identities. (HCO PL 26 Apr 70R) 2 . the ability to perceive, pose and resolve problems. (Scn 0-8, p. 64) 3 . the ability of an individual, group or race to resolve problems relating to survival. (Scn 0-8, p. 61) INTELLIGENCE GAIN, loss of re-stimulation by stupidity by reason of attempts to confront or experience the problems of life (intelligence appears when stupidity is keyed out or erased). Intelligence is a confronting ability. (HCOB 28 Feb 59) INTENSIVE, an intensive is defined as any one single period of 12 1/2 hours or 25 hours of auditing delivered all within one single week or weekends on a set schedule. (HCO PL 20 Oct 71)

INTENSIVE PROCEDURE, the Standard Operating Procedure, 1954, given in The Creation of Human Ability, by L. Ron Hubbard. (PXL, p. 277) INTENTION, 1. intention is the command factor as much as anything else. If you intend something to happen it happens if you intend it to happen. Verbalization is not the intention. The intention is the carrier wave which takes the verbalization along with it. (Abil 270) 2 . degree of relative beingness which an individual desires to assume as plotted on the tone scale. (5203CM04A)

INTENTIONAL WITHHOLD, one which is a withhold because he would be punished if he admitted it. (SH Spec 63, 6110C05)

INTEREST, 1 . i n t e r e s t is more consideration than attention, and is therefore attention with intention. Interest, therefore, could be defined as this; attention with an intention to give or attract attention. (COHA, p. 103) 2. interest does not mean happiness and joy. Interest is only absorbed attention and a desire to talk about it. (HCOB 1 Jul 63)

INTERESTED/INTERESTING, 1 . a thetan is interested, and an object is interesting. A thetan is not interesting. He is interested. And when a person becomes terribly interesting he has lots of problems. That is the chasm that is crossed by all of your celebrities, anybody who is foolish enough to become famous. He crosses over from being interested in life to being interesting, and people who are interesting are really no longer interested in life. (PXL, p. 191) 2 . “A” has the intention of interesting “b.” “B” to be talked to, becomes interesting. Similarly “b,” when he emanates a communication, is interested and “a” is interesting. Cause is interested, effect is interesting. (Dn 55 .!, p. 66)

INTERIORIZATION, 1. interiorization means going into it too fixedly, and becoming part of it too fixedly. It doesn’t mean just going into your head. (SH Spec 84, 6612C13) 2 . if the havingness of the preclear is low, he is apt to close in tight to the body because this gives him more havingness and if the preclear fears that the body is going to go out of control he will also move in closer to the body. Thus we get interiorization as no more complicated than fear of loss of control and drops in havingness. (SCP, p. 18) Abbr. Int.

INTERIORIZATION RUNDOWN, 1 . a l s o k n o w n a s I n t – E x t R D f o r Interiorization-Exteriorization Rundown. (HCOB 24 Sept 71) 2 . t h e Interiorization Rundown is a remedy designed to permit the pc to be further audited after he has gone exterior. The Int Rundown is not meant to be sold or passed off as a method of exteriorizing a pc. (HCOB 17 Dec 71R) See EXTERIORIZATION RUNDOWN.

INTERN(E), an advanced graduate or a recent graduate in a professional field who is getting practical experience under the supervision of an experienced worker. (HCOB 19 Jul 71) INTERN(E)SHIP, serving a period as an intern, or an activity offered by a Church of Scientology by which experience can be gained. The apprenticeship of an auditor is done as a Scientology Church intern. A course graduate becomes an auditor by auditing. That means lots of auditing. (HCOB 19 Jul 71)

INTERROGATION, ( SILENT), how to read an E -meter on a silent subject. When the person placed on a meter will not talk but can be made to hold the cans, it is still possible to obtain full information from the person asking questions, one expects no reply, asks for no pictures. The auditor just watches the needle for dips when questions are asked. (HCOB 30 Mar 60)

INT-EXT, interiorization-exteriorization. (HCOB 30 May 70)

INT-EXT RD, Interiorization-Exteriorization Rundown. (HCOB 24 Sept 71)

IN THE WHITE, Slang. on an OCA, the center line of 00 is the critical point of the graph. A little bit into the lower gray-shaded area is not too bad. But when they go down into the white, like a minus 62 or a minus 76 or even a minus 26, they’re said to be “in the white.” (7203C30SO) I N T R D , Interiorization Rundown also known as Int-Ext RD for Interiorization-Exteriorization Rundown. (HCOB 24 Sept 71)

INTRODUCTION OF AN ARBITRARY, an arbitrary may be considered as a factor introduced into a problem’s solution when that factor does not derive from a known natural law but only from an opinion or authoritarian command. A problem resolved by data derived from known natural laws resolves well and smoothly and has a useful solution. When a problem is resolved by introducing arbitraries (factors based on opinion or command but not natural law) then that solution, when used, will ordinarily require more arbitraries to make the solution applicable. The harder one tries to apply the solution corrupted by arbitraries to any situation, the more arbitraries have to be introduced. ( SOS Gloss)

INTROSPECTION RUNDOWN, the essence of the Introspection Rundown is looking for and correcting all those things which caused the person to look inward, worriedly and wrestle with the mystery of some incorrectly designated error. The end phenomena is the person extroverted, no longer looking inward worriedly in a continuous self-audit without end. (HCOB 23 Jan 74RA)

INTROVERSION, 1. looking in too closely. (POW, p. 92) 2 . a manifestation of the analytical mind trying to solve problems on improper data, and observing the organism being engaged in activities which are not conducive to survival along the dynamics. (DTOT, p. 105)

INTROVERTED, he would look in on himself . ( SH Spec 84, 6612C13)

INT RUNDOWN CORRECTION LIST, used when Int-Ext reads on any repair list and the Int RD has already been done or corrected, when a bog occurs on the Int RD itself, or if pc upset after Int RD and/or TA gone high or low immediately after. Don’t re-run Int RD—use the correction list. EP is all reading items handled to F/N, EP of Int RD, and INT-Ext no longer reading. (BTB 11 Aug 72RA)

INVADER FORCES, 1. an electronics people. The electronics people usually happen to be an evolutionary line which is on heavy gravity planet and so they develop electronics. The reason you say invader force at all is because at some time along the line fairly early in its youth it took off to conquer the whole mest universe. You could expect almost anything in terms of physical form particularly physical form which matched the peculiar purpose of this group. They’ve usually got some gimmick like Fac One. Control has been the main thing. The way to control territory is control people. (5206CM27A) 2 . there are five invader f o r c e s active and one aborning, but the one aborning is not active. It will probably be several million years before you begin to see this one, some of you hit the track 60 trillion years ago mest universe and some of you didn’t get into the mest universe until about 3 trillion years ago that is invader force one and invader force two. This is E-meter data confirmed from preclear to preclear. Now we don’t see anything of invader force three here on earth. I just haven’t found any threes. I n v a d e r f o r c e f o u r is really holding the fort someplace or other. Every little while, a few million years, some planet will get taken over by an invader force. (5206CM27A) See also FIFTH INVADER FORCE.

IN VALENCE, what we mean by “in valence” is simply in the valence he was in when the engram occurred. Now when we say out of valence we mean simply and entirely the pc was not in the body he was occupying during the incident . ( SH Spec 51, 6109C07)

INVALIDATION, 1. refuting or degrading or discrediting or denying something someone else considers to be fact. (HCOB 2 Jun 71 I) 2 . any thought, emotion or effort, or counter-thought, counter-emotion or counter-effort which denies or smothers the thought, emotion or effort of the individual. (NOM, p. 56) 3 . invalidation by words is the symbolic level of being struck. (2ACC-19B, 5312CM09) 4 . basically, non-attention. Attention itself is quite important for attention is necessary before an effect can be created. (PAB 8) 5. invalidation is force applied. You apply enough force to anybody and you’ve invalidated him. How invalidated can he get? Dead! (5207CM24B) Abbr. Inval.

INVALIDATION OF AUDITORS, could be defined as (a) letting an auditor lose, (b) correcting things he does right. (HCOB 1 Sept 71 I)

INVENTION PROCESSING, this is done by having the preclear invent various ideas or considerations by which he creates stable data to displace aberrated stable data, and to handle confusions. (Op. Bull. No. 1)

INVERSION, 1. a switch to an opposite obsessive consideration such as from compulsion to inhibition. There may be many inversions on any consideration, each leading further from self-determinism. (COHA Gloss) 2 . his resistance has been overcome so that when it tries to outflow, it inflows. That’s an inversion and that’s what’s meant by inversion. A person tries to outflow, he inflows— in other words, he exactly reverses his consideration on the thing. (8ACC-8, 5410CM12) 3 . the flows have exactly turned around and that’s what we know as an inversion and that’s exactly why we call it an inversion; because it’s a flow going backwards. (SH Spec 6, 6106C02)

INVERTED DYNAMICS, we can take a person and actually have him be someplace else when he is right there. See, he’ll still keep this body but he’ll actually be and operate someplace else and you’ll run into this every once in a while in a preclear. We call this inverted dynamics. (2ACC-lB, 5311CM17)

INVISIBLE CASE, cannot see mock-ups. They have no field and do not see anything when they close their eyes, everything is i n v i s i b l e , they have no facsimiles, no mock-ups. (PAB 154)

INVISIBLE FIELD, a part of some lock, secondary or engram that is “invisible.” It like a black field responds to R3R. (HCOB 23 Apr 69) I P , see INTEGRITY PROCESSING. IQ, 1. intelligence quotient. IQ ratings are a measure of an individual’s capacity for learning something new; they are scales based upon how old in years a person has become compared to how “old,” he is mentally. (SOS, p. xxi) 2 . the degree that a person can observe, understand actions. (SH Spec 100, 6201C16)

IRRATIONALITY, the inability to get right answers from data. (DMSMH, p. 16) IRS, instant rock slam. (HCOB 8 Nov 62) IS-ES, THE, S11mg. the four conditions of existence. (PXL, p. 214) [These four conditions are listed separately under AS-ISNESS, ALTER-ISNESS, IS-NESS, NOT-ISNESS.]

IS-NESS , 1. is-ness is an apparency of existence brought about by the continuous alteration of an as-isness. This is called, when agreed upon, reality. (PXL, p. 154) 2 . something that is persisting on a continuum. That is our basic definition of i s – n e s s . (PXL, p. 91) 3 . i s – n e s s is an apparency, it is not an actuality. (PXL, p. 175) “ISSUE I”, first i s s u e of that date. [“issue” as seen on HCOBs and HCO PLs.] (HCOB 4 Sept 71 III) ITEM, 1. any one of a list of things, people, ideas, significances, purposes, etc., given by a preclear to an auditor while listing; any separate thing or article; in particular, one placed on a list by a pc. (Dn Today, p. 1028) 2 . somatic or sensation etc. (HCOB 27 May 70) 3 . any terminal, opposition terminal, combination terminal, significance, or idea (but not a doingness, which is called “a level”) appearing on a list derived from the pc. (HCOB 8 Nov 62) Symbol IT. ITSA, 1. the action of the pc saying “It’s a this or it’s a that.” (HCOB 6 Nov 64) 2 . letting the pc say what’s there that was put there to hold back a confusion or problem. (HCOB 1 Oct 63) 3 . pc saying what is, what is there, who is there, where it is, what it looks like, ideas about, decisions about, solutions to, things in his environment. The pc talking continuously about problems or puzzlements or wondering about things in his environment, is not itsaing. (HCOB 16 Oct 63) 4 . a pc who is itsaing is simply looking at and identifying some thing. (SH Spec 320, 6310C31) 5 . TA comes from saying “It is . . .” Itsa isn’t even a comm line. It’s what travels on a comm line from pc to auditor, if that which travels is saying with certainty “It is.” (HCOB 1 Oct 63) ITSA LINE, the pc’s line to the auditor. (HCOB 23 May 71 III)

ITSA MAKER LINE, the pc’s line to his bank. (HCOB 23 May 71

IVORY TOWER RULE, the case supervisor is most successful when he supervises in seclusion. This is called the Ivory Tower rule. (HCOB 8 Aug 71)

JAMMING THE TRACK, Slang. sticking, holding the time track. (PAB 106)

JEALOUSY, is basically an inability to confront the unknown. (SH Spec 43, 6108C22)

JIGGLE-JIGGLE, needle manifestation. A vibration. You’ve got somebody with an alternating current ridge. ( SH Spec 1, 6105C07) JOBURG, a comprehensive security checklist developed in Johannesburg, South Africa. (Ab1,1218)

JOINT POSITION, the recall of bodily attitudes. (SOS Gloss)

JUDICIARY DIANETICS, covers the field of adjudication within the society and amongst the societies of man. Of necessity it embraces jurisprudence and its codes and establishes precision definitions and equations for the establishment of equity. It is the science of judgment. (DMSMH, p. 402) JUMP CHAINS, the main liability (in Dn auditing) of pushing a pc past a win is that he may “jump chains” and begin another chain with no assessment. (HCOB 23 Jun 69)

JUNIOR CASE, if father was named George and the patient is called George, beware of trouble. The engram bank takes George to mean George and that is identity thought de luxe. A junior case is seldom easy. (DMSMH, p. 305)

JUSTICE, 1 . the action of the group against the individual when he has failed to get his own ethics in. (HCOB 15 Nov 72 II) 2 . could be called the adjudication of the relative rightness or wrongness of a decision or an action. (AP&A, p. 10)

JUSTIFICATION, explaining away the most flagrant wrongnesses. Most explanations of conduct, no matter how far fetched, seem perfectly right to the person making them since he or she is only asserting self-rightness and other- wrongness. (HCOB 22 Jul 63)

JUSTIFIED THOUGHT, the attempt of the analytical mind to explain the reactive, engramic, reactions of the organism in the ordinary course of living. Justified thought is the effort of the conscious mind to explain away aberration without admitting, as it cannot do normally, that it has failed the organism. (DTOT, p. 42)

JUSTIFIER, 1. the technical term we apply to the “mock-up” or overt act demanded by a person guilty of an unmotivated act. (COHA, p. 156) 2 . a mocked up motivator. (8ACC-16, 5410CM21)

JUSTIFIER-HUNGRY, an act must be considered harmful or evil to be an overt act. To need a justifier a person must have believed his act to have been harmful. In that a thetan cannot possibly, actually, be harmed, any harmful act he performs is an unmotivated act. As the thetan cannot experience a motivator covert act sequence, we have the dwindling spiral. He is always justifier hungry. Thus he punishes and restimulates himself. Thus he is always complaining about what others do to him. Thus he is a problem to himself. (COHA, p. 156)

KEEPER OF TECH, is the highest technically trained personnel in the field. He/she is usually located in a very specific area (Church), where they can be contacted and communicated with any time. The major duty of any Keeper of Tech is to ensure that the standard of Dn and Scn t e c h n o l o g y , processing and case supervision is applied and maintained as originated by LRH, as its 100 per cent rate, in the area they are keeping tech in. (FO 2354)

KERFUFFLE, Slang. an upset. (SH Spec 45, 6411C03)

KEYED-OUT CLEAR, 1. when you find what lock words have been tied into the GPMs in this or even an earlier lifetime and key them out (destimulate them) (untie them from the main mass) the GPMs sink back into proper alignment and cease being effective. This makes a key-out Clear. This condition is valuable because the GPMs are now confrontable one by one (not dozens by dozens) and Routine 6 can be run easily on the preclear. (HCOB 17 Oct 64 III) 2 . this is a simulated Clear, we call it a “keyed-out Clear” quite properly. But it isn’t a Clear, it’s a release. The person has been released from his reactive mind. He still has that reactive mind but he is not in it. He is just released from it. (HCOB 2 Apr 65)

KEYED-OUT OT, 1. released OT. (HCOB 30 Jun 65) 2 . the pc is still a pre-clear though a keyed-out OT. This really isn’t a thetan exterior. The thetan exterior is quite unstable and can be attained below an ordinary first stage release. Keyed-out OT is not done by routine auditing, being an offshoot of it that happens sometimes. (HCOB 28 Jun 65) KEY-IN, v. 1. the action of recording a lock on a secondary or engram. (HCOB 23 Apr 69) —n. 1 . the first time an engram is restimulated is called a key-in. A key-in is merely a special kind of lock, the first lock on a particular engram. (SOS, Bk. 2, p. 29) 2 . a moment when the environment around the awake but fatigued or distressed individual is itself similar to the dormant engram. At that moment the engram becomes active. It is k e y e d – i n and can thereafter be dramatized. (SOS, Bk. 2, p. 136) K E Y – O U T , v . 1 . an action of the engram or secondary dropping away without being erased. (HCOB 23 Apr 69) —n. 2 . the person without knowing what the earlier instance was has had the lock vanish. That’s a key-out. (SH Spec 122 . 6203C19)—adj. 3 . released from the stimulus-response mechanisms of the reactive mind. (PXL, p. 18) 4 . release or separation from one’s reactive mind or some portion of it. (PXL, p. 252)

KINESTHESIA, 1. by kinesthesia we perceive motion through space and time. (SOS, p. 59) 2 . weight and muscular motion. (DMSMH, p. 46) KINETIC, something which has considerable motion. (Scn 8-80, p. 43)

KINETIC MOTION, something that’s moving. Or a potentiality of motion. (PDC 18)

KNOW BEST, a technical and admin term. In tech it refers to an auditor who in misapplying a process on a pc considers he k n o w s more than is actually contained in the technical bulletins on the subject and uses this “know best” as a basis for altering technical procedure. In admin it refers similarly to a person who considers he has a better way of accomplishing something than is contained in the policy letters covering that subject and messes things up. Management then finds itself left with the task of correcting that person’s goofs by applying the correct standard policy to the area. In English, it is a derogatory term meaning the person is pretending to know while actually being stupid. (LRH Def. Notes)

KNOWING CAUSE, the person at cause is there because he k n o w s he is there and because he is willingly there. The person at cause is not at cause because he does not dare be at effect. He must be able to be at effect. If he is afraid to be at effect, then he is unwilling cause and is at cause only because he is very afraid of being at effect. (SCP, p. 9)

KNOWINGNESS, 1. being certainness. (PAB 1) 2 . a capability for truth; it is not data. (PDC 47) 3 . k n o w i n g n e s s would be self-determined knowledge. (5405C20)

KNOWLEDGE, 1. by knowledge we mean assured belief, that which is known information, instruction; enlightenment, learning; practical skill. By knowledge we mean data, factors and whatever can be thought about or perceived. (FOT, p. 76) 2 . knowledge is more than data; it is also the ability to draw conclusions. (DAB, Vol. II, p. 69) 3 . a whole group or subdivision of a group of data or speculations or conclusions on data or methods of gaining data. (Scn 0-8, p. 67)

KNOW-POINT, a know-point is senior to a viewpoint. An individual would not have dependency on space or mass or anything else. He’d simply know where he was. (PXL, p. 257)

KNOW-TO-MYSTERY SCALE, the scale of affinity from knowingness down through lookingness, emotingness, effortingness, thinkingness, symbolizingness, eatingness, sexingness and so through to not-knowingness- mystery. The know-to-sex scale was the earlier version of this scale. (PXL, p. 49) KOT, Keeper of Tech. (FO 2354)

KRC TRIANGLE, the upper triangle in the Scn symbol. The points are K for knowledge, R for responsibility, and C for control. It is difficult to be responsible for something or control something unless you have knowledge of it. It is folly to try to control something or even know something without responsibility. It is hard to fully know something or be responsible for something over which you have no control, otherwise the result can be an overwhelm. Little by little one can make anything go right by: increasing

KNOWLEDGE on all dynamics, increasing RESPONSIBILITY on all dynamics, increasing CONTROL on all dynamics. (HCO PL 18 Feb 72) KUCDEIOF, know, unknow, curious, desire, enforce, inhibit, none of it, false.

(HCOB 29 Sept 66) L & N, Listing and Nulling. (HCOB 20 Apr 72 II)

L&N LIST, a list of items given by a pc in response to a listing question and written down by the auditor in the exact sequence that they are given to him by the preclear. An L&N list is always done on a separate sheet. (BTB 7 Nov 72 III)

LANGUAGE, 1. the symbolization of effort. (Scn 0-8, p. 82) 2 . t h e communications of agreements and disagreements. (PDC 27) 3 . symbolized object or condition or state of being. (PDC 44)

LANGUAGE LOCKS, locks in which the main aberrative content is in terms of language. These may be considered symbolic restimulators of mest locks, which are more fundamental. (SOS Gloss)

LARGE READS, 1/3 of a dial or more at sensitivity 5 . (HCOB 24 Jan 65) LARGE THETA BOP, a quarter of a dial to a third of the dial. (Cert, Vol. 5, No. 9, 1958) LAST GPM, closest to PT. (SH Spec 307, 6309C17)

LATENT READ, 1 . a read which occurs later than completion of the major thought being expressed in words by the auditor. (HCOB 25 May 62) 2 . if the needle doesn’t fall or react for a second or more after the question is asked, and then reacts, this is a latent read. (HCOB 6 Jul 61)

LATER ON THE TRACK, closer to PT. (HCOB 8 Apr 63)

LAUDABLE WITHHOLD, if it’s laudable to have done it, then it’s not laudable to withhold it. All right, if it’s laudable to withhold it then it must be coupled with, “You shouldn’t ought to have done it, it shouldn’t be done.” So one of the pair of the overt or the withhold is always laudable and always desirable. And the other one is undesirable. A laudable withhold is an undesirable action. (SH Spec 100, 6201C16)

LAUGHTER, 1. Laughter plays a definite role in therapy. It is quite amusing to see a preclear, who has been haunted by an engram which contained great emotional charge, suddenly relieve it, for the situation, no matter how gruesome it was, when relieved, is in all its aspects a subject of great mirth. Laughter is definitely the relief of painful emotion. (DMSMH, p. 121) 2. this laughter is the reversing of charge residual in the locks which depended for their fear content or antagonistic content upon the basic engrams. (DTOT, p. 99)

LAW OF AFFINITY, the law of affinity might be interpreted as the l a w o f cohesion; “affinity” might be defined as “love” in both its meanings. Deprivation of or absence of affection could be considered as a violation of the law of affinity. Man must be in affinity with man to survive. (DMSMH, p. 106)

LEAVE OF ABSENCE, an authorized period of absence from a course granted in writing by a course supervisor and entered in the student’s study folder. (HCOB 19 Jun 71 III)

LECT, lecture. (HCOB 29 Sept 66)

LEFT-HAND BUTTON, a suppressor-type button. The nearly found-out is a left-hand button and does not necessarily read on the meter. Suppress, careful of, nearly found out, fail to reveal. They do not cause things to read, they prevent things from reading. All the other buttons cause things to read unnecessarily. Anxious about tends to be a left-hand button. Protest follows on a left-hand button so it tends to be the point where the left and right side tie together. (SH Spec 229, 6301C10)

LETTING THE PC HAVE HIS WIN, a session that tries to go beyond a big dial wide drifting floating F/N only distracts the pc from his w i n . B i g w i n . Any big win (F/N dial wide, cog, VGIs) gives you this kind of persistent F/N. You at least have to let it go until tomorrow and let the pc have his win. That is what is meant by letting the pc have his win. When you get one of these dial wide F/Ns, cog, VGIs, Wow! you may as well pack it up for the day. (HCOB 8 Oct 70)

LEVEL, 1. grade and level are the same thing but when one has a grade one is a pc and when one has a l e v e l one is studying its data. (HCOB 2 Apr 65) 2 . a segment of technical information or performance for any application of Scn. (Aud 72 UK) 3. Level means “that body of Scn data for that point of progress of the individual.” (Aud 72 UK) 4 . any doingness or not doingness on the pre-hav scale. Any word in the scale itself. (HCOB 7 Nov 62 III) Abbr. Lev. LEVEL 0, see HRS. LEVEL I, see HTS. LEVEL II, see HCA. LEVEL III, see HPA. LEVEL IV, see HAA. LEVEL V, see HVA. LEVEL (5), STATE OF CASE, dub-in—some areas of track so heavily charged, pc is below consciousness in them. (HCOB 8 Jun 63) [For a complete list of the 8 levels of case of SOP 8-C, see STATE OF CASE SCALE.] LEVEL VI, see HSS. [The SHSBC teaches to Level VI and results in a Class VI auditor. However Grade VI is a solo-audit grade and is not only done by a Class VI auditor but also by pcs who have attained Grade VA and have completed a special course which teaches them to solo audit.] LEVEL VII, Level VII contains the materials necessary to totally erase the reactive mind. (SH Spec 71, 6607C26) [The Class VII Course is the course which teaches auditors to audit the power processes. Level VII or Clearing Course, as it is more often called, is done by pcs who have successfully solo audited to Grade VI Release, after which they may solo audit to Clear.]

LEVEL OF AWARENESS, by level of awareness is meant that of which a being is a w a r e . There are about fifty-two l e v e l s o f a w a r e n e s s from unexistence up to the state of Clear. A being who is at a l e v e l on this scale is aware only of that level and the others below it. (HCO PL 5 May 65) L F , long fall. (HCOB 29 Apr 69) LFBD, long fall blowdown. (HCOB 29 Apr 69) LGC, London Group Course. (HCOB 29 Sept 66) L I E , 1 . a second postulate, statement or condition designed to mask a primary postulate which is permitted to remain. (PXL, p. 180) 2 . a statement that a particle having moved did not move, or a statement that a particle not having moved, did move. (PXL, p. 180) 3 . an alteration of time, place, event and form. (PXL, p. 187) 4 . invention with a bad connotation. (PAB 49)

LIE FACTORY, Slang. technically, a phrase contained in an engram demanding prevarication—it was originally called a fabricator. (DMSMH, p. 191)

LIE REACTION, questions originally used in Scientology only to study the needle pattern of the person being checked so that changes in it could then be judged in their true light. Some pcs for instance, get a slight fall every time any question is asked. Some get a fall only when there is heavy charge. Both can be security checked by studying the common pattern of the needle demonstrated in asking the lie reaction questions. (HCO PL 25 Mar 61) LIFE, 1. (understanding), when we say “Life” we mean understanding, and when we say “understanding” we mean affinity, reality and communication. To understand all would be to live at the highest level of potential action and ability. Because life is understanding it attempts to understand. When it faces the incomprehensible it feels balked and baffled. (Dn 55 .!, p. 36) 2 . a fundamental axiom of Dn is that life is formed by theta compounding with mest to make a living organism. Life is theta plus mest. (SOS, Bk. 2, p. 3) 3 . a static, which yet has the power of controlling, animating, mobilizing, organizing and destroying matter, energy and space, and possibly even time. (HFP, p. 24) 4 . a thought or mind or beingness that conceives there are forms, masses, spaces, and difficulties. (HPCA-64, 5608C–) 5 . that which is posing and solving problems. (UPC 11) 6 . Life is a game consisting of freedom, barriers and purposes. (Scn 0-8, p. 119)

LIFE AND LIVINGNESS ENVIRONMENT, the workaday world of the pc. (HCOB 1 Oct 63)

LIFE CONTINUUM, 1. one individual attempting to carry on the life of another deceased individual or departed individual by means of generating in his own body the infirmities and mannerisms of the deceased or departed individual. (9ACC-24, 5501C14) 2 . it is the re-stimulation of an individual’s desire to go on living when he’s dying. (5112CM28B) 3 . it is simply this: somebody fails, departs or dies and the individual then takes on the burden of this person’s habits, goals, fears, and idiosyncrasies. (5112CM28B)

LIFE REPAIR PROGRAM, handles Life areas. (HCOB 15 Jun 70) [Note the referenced HCOB outlines the steps for this type of program. ]

LIFE RUDS, as the person with out ruds makes no real gain it is wise to put ruds in “in Life.” This is done with, “In Life have you had an ARC break?” “In Life have you had a problem?” “In Life have you had a withhold?” (HCOB 16 Aug 69) LIFE STATIC, 1. a Life static has no mass, no motion, no wave-length, no location in space or time. It has the ability to postulate and to perceive. (PXL, p. 146) 2 . the thought, soul, vital part of you which animates this mest, the body. (HCP, p. 75)

LIFE UPSET INTENSIVE, this is a five hour or so intensive. It is the ARC break routine mostly. (LRH ED 57 INT)

LIGHT OBJECTIVE PROCESSES, light objective (look outward, take attention off body) processes. (Abil Mi 244)

LIGHT PROCESSING, 1. Light processing deals with postulates and effects and can be done either on an individual or co-auditing basis. (DAB, Vol. II, p. 173) 2 . includes analytical recall of conscious moments. It is intended to raise tone and increase perception and memory. (SA, p. 61)

LIMITED PROCESS, any process which makes the preclear create is a limited process. Such processes as “Tell a lie” are creative processes. (HCOB 11 Feb 60)

LIMITED TECHNIQUE, a technique which can be used only for a short time beneficially, and after a certain period of time will begin to cause deterioration. (2ACC 20B, 5312CM10) LINE CHARGE, a prolonged spell of uncontrolled laughter or crying which may be continued for several hours. Once started a L i n e c h a r g e can usually be reinforced by the occasional interjection of almost any word or phrase by the auditor. The Line charge usually signals the sudden release of a large amount of charge and brings about a marked change in the case. (COHA, p. 281)

LINE LISTING, when a goal is found, you then have a number of lines. Called lines. And item by item you ask the question of these lines. You ask the question of the lines of the pc and he gives you the answer. And that is written down. And that is called line listing. And when you have finished all the lines completely there is a free needle on all of the lines. (SH Spec 195, 6309C27)

LINE PLOT, this consists of a heavy blue 13-inch (foolscap or legal) sheet of paper, kept in the pc’s folder and kept up to date every time a reliable item (or even last item “in”)is found. On this line plot one column, the left-hand one, is reserved for opp-terms. The right-hand column is reserved for terms and LIne~ indicate whenever terms or opp-terms. are derived from each other. A reliable item is designated as such on this line plot with the symbol R.I. Non-reliable items are not designated. The date each line plot item was found is added after the item so it can be found again in the auditor’s reports without a scramble. (HCOB 8 Nov 62)

LINES, BASIC FOUR, (1) Who or what would want . . . ? (2) Who or what would not want . . . ? (3) Who or what would oppose . . . ? (4) Who or what would not oppose . . . ? (HCOB 7 Nov 62)


LISTEN STYLE AUDITING, at Level 0 the style is Listen Style auditing. Here the auditor is expected to Listen to the pc. The only skill necessary is listening to another. Listen Style should not be complicated by expecting more of the auditor than just this: L i s t e n to the pc without evaluating, invalidating or interrupting. (HCOB 6 Nov 64)

LISTING, 1. the auditor’s action in writing down items said by the pc in response to a question by the auditor. (HCOB 5 Dec 62) 2 . this is something Listed by the pc. The pc says it. It is from a question. The auditor asks the question, the pc then gives him items which the auditor then writes down from the pc. (Class VIII No. 11) 3 . a special procedure used in some processes where the auditor writes down items said by the preclear in response to a question by the auditor in the exact sequence that they are given to him by the preclear. (Scn AD) 4 . in Listing, today the correct L&N item must BD and F/N. (HCOB 20 Apr 72 II)

LISTING AND NULLING, 1. this is something Listed by the pc, the pc says it. It is from a question. The auditor asks the question, the pc then gives him items which the auditor then writes down from the pc. (Class VIII No. 11) 2 . you ask a question of the pc, the pc gives you item, item, item, item. The auditor writes them down and then he nulls the List. And there must only be one item which has any read in it of any kind whatsoever on that List. (Class VIII No. 11) Also see LISTING, see NULLING.

LISTING METER, a real cheap meter that was beautifully designed, but basically one that would do a power of good as far as Listing is concerned, so that you wouldn’t miss reads. (SH Spec 256, 6304C02)

LIST ONE , 1 . a L i s t of Scn items. This includes Scn, Scn organizations, an auditor, clearing, auditing, Scientologists, a session, an E-meter, a practitioner, the auditor’s name, Ron, other Scn persons, parts of Scn, past auditors, etc. This List is composed by the auditor, not the pc. (HCOB 23 Nov 62) 2 . this is the list one of Routine 2-1 2 . The Scn list is called List One. (HCOB 24 Nov 62)

LISTS, all lists have been in HCOBs as “L.” (HCOB 19 Aug 63) [Below are some of the lists which begin with L. Other Scn and Dn lists and their usages will appear alphabetically as they occur (e.g. WCCL will be found under W.)] (a) LCR=Confessional Repair List. (FBDL 245) (b) L1=List One. (HCOB 23 Aug 65) (c) L1C=List 1C, used by auditors in session when an upset occurs, or as ordered by the C/S. Handles ARC broken, sad, hopeless or nattery pcs. (HCOB 19 Mar 71) [Earlier numbered L1, L1-A and L1-B.] (d) LlR=Integrity Processing Repair List. The rule of Integrity processing is that it should always end on an F/N. When it does not F/N however (which includes F/Ning at the pc examiner) or pc is upset, gets sick, or not doing well after Integrity processing, this list must be used to repair the pc. (HCOB 8 Jan 72R) (e) LlX Hi-Lo TA List=this assessment has been developed to detect all the reasons for high and low TA. It is used when a C/S Series 53 has been done and the high or low TA persists. (HCOB 1 Jan 72RA) (f) L3B=[the Dn repair list prior to the L3RD, which revised it.] (g) L3EXD=this list includes the most frequent Dn errors and is amended for Expanded Dn only. (BTB 2 Apr 72RB II) (h) L3RD=this list includes the most frequent Dn errors. A high or low TA and a bogged case can result from failures to erase a chain of incidents. Take any read found to F/N by full repair of it per the instructions. (HCOB 11 Apr 71RA) (i) L4BR=used for assessment of all listing errors, when trouble occurs on a listing process, when TA goes high or pc gets sick or upset after a session which included listing action. (BTB 11 Aug 72RA) [Earlier numbered L4 and L4-A.] See CORRECTION LIST. L I V E Q U E S T I O N , 1 . unflat question. (HCOB 13 Dec 72R) 2 . q u e s t i o n unflat, needle reaction on a question. (HCOB 19 Oct 61) LIVINGNESS, is going along a certain course impelled by a purpose and with some place to arrive. It consists mostly of removing the barriers in the channel, holding the edges firm, ignoring the distractions and reinforcing and re-impelling one’s progress along the channel. That’s Life. (SH Spec 57, 6504C06) L 9 S , a process called L9-Short (originally called L10s but renamed for proper issue) The New Life Rundown. The New Life Rundown has exact steps. Well done it gives a new life in truth. (HCOB 17 Jun 71) [Now called L-11 per CG&AC 75 .]

LOC, locational. (BTB 20 Aug 71R II)

LOCATIONAL, 1. a process called locational. Command: “Have you got an auditing room?” Locational is only one of many spotting processes. (SCP, pp. 27-28) 2. “Locate the .” The auditor has the preclear locate the floor, the ceiling, the walls, the furniture in the room and other objects and bodies. (HCOTB 6 Feb 57) 3 . “Look at that object”. (HCOB 2 Nov 57RA)

LOCATIONAL PROCESSING, the object of locational processing is to establish an adequacy of communication terminals in the environment of the preclear. It can be run in busy thoroughfares, graveyards, confused traffic or anywhere there is or is not motion of objects and people. Commands: “Notice that (person).” (Op Bull No. 1) Abbr. Loc.

LOCATIONAL SPOTTING, one directs the pc’s attention with “You notice that (object)” all about the room and at first only occasionally includes the pc’s body and the auditor’s body in the spotting. Then the auditor, using the same process, concentrates less and less upon the room and more and more upon the auditor and the pc. It will be found that the pc will eventually find the auditor with his attention so directed. (SCP, p. 20) L O C K , 1 . an analytical moment in which the perceptions of the engram are approximated, thus restimulating the engram or bringing it into action, the present time perceptions being erroneously interpreted by the reactive mind to mean that the same condition which produced physical pain once before is now again at hand. Locks contain mainly perceptions; no physical pain and very little misemotion. (SOS, p. 112) 2 . a situation of mental anguish. It depends for its force on the engram to which it is appended. The lock is more or less known to the analyzer. It’s a moment of severe re-stimulation of an engram. (EOS, p. 84) 3 . those parts of the time track which contain moments the pc associates with key-ins. (HCOB 15 May 63) 4 . conscious level experiences which sort of stick and the individual doesn’t quite know why. (SH Spec 72, 6607C28)

LOCK END WORDS, words that are not in the GPMs but which, occurring later, are close in meaning to significances that are part of the GPMs and so lock into a GPM and restimulate it. They keep large parts of the reactive mind in re-stimulation. (LRH Def. Notes) LOCKS, mental image pictures of non-painful but disturbing experiences the person has experienced. They depend for their force on secondaries and engrams. (HCOB 12 Jul 65)

LOCK SCANNING, one contacts an early look on the track and goes rapidly or slowly through all such similar incidents straight to present time. One does this many times and the whole chain of locks become ineffective in influencing one. (HFP, pp. 99-100)

LOCK WORDS, words not in the GPMs but close in meaning. (HCOB 17 Oct 64 III) LOE, London Open Evening Lectures. (HCOB 29 Sept 66)

LOGIC, 1. a gradient scale of association of facts of greater or lesser similarity made to resolve some problem of the past, present or future, but mainly to resolve and predict the future. Logic is the combination of factors into an answer. (Scn 8- 8008, p. 46) 2 . the gradient scale and comparisons of data which work out a smooth network of terminals and communication lines which deliver data in a prediction of future form or theta beingness. (Spr Lect 6, 5303CM25) 3 . primitive logic was one-valued. Everything was assumed to be the product of a divine will, and there was no obligation to decide the rightness or wrongness of anything. Most l o g i c added up merely to the propitiation of the gods. Aristotle formulated two-valued logic. A thing was either right or wrong. This type of logic is used by the reactive mind. In the present day, engineers are using a sort of three-valued logic which contains the values of right, wrong, and maybe. From three-valued logic we jump to an infinityvalued logic—a spectrum which moves from infinite wrongness to infinite rightness. (NOTL, p. 17) 4 . rationalism, for all logic is based upon the somewhat idiotic circumstance that a being that is immortal is trying to survive. (Scn 8-8008, p. 47) 5 . the subject of reasoning. (HCO PL 11 May 70) LOL, life or livingness. (SH Spec 225, 6212C13)

LONG FALL, an E-meter read of two to three inches. (HCOB 29 Apr 69) Abbr. LF.

LONG FALL BLOWDOWN, a l o n g f a l l followed by a b l o w d o w n or TA motion downward. (HCOB 29 Apr 69) Abbr. LFBD. LON LECT, London Lecture. (HCOB 29 Sept 66)

LOOP, a redoubling of the time track, back on itself. In this case incidents are not in their correct place on the time track. (DTOT, p. 142) LOSE, intending to do something and not doing it, and intending not to do something and doing it. (SH Spec 278, 6306C25)

LOSS, something has withdrawn from a thetan without his consent. This would be the definition of l o s s . (COHA, p. 210)


LOSS OF VIEWPOINT, where he has had an a]ly who is dead, he has once had a viewpoint which was alive and now can no longer use that viewpoint. This is the basic l o s s and the basic occlusion. It is the loss of a viewpoint. (PAB 2)

LOVE, 1. Love, as a word, has too many meanings, and so we use an old, old word, affinity, as meaning the love or brotherhood from one dynamic to another. (HFP, p. 41) 2 . the human manifestation of admiration. (PAB 8) 3 . an intensity of happiness addressed in a certain direction. (SA, p. 93)

LOWER HARMONIC, it is a l o w e r similarity which is nutty which is actually based on something like it higher on the scale which isn’t. It means a co-action or similar. (SH Spec 83, 6612C06)

LOWER ON THE SCALE, m e a n s l o w e r toned or means in worse shape. (5707C17)

LOW TA, 1. below 2 .0 on the tone arm. (HCOB 11 May 69 II) 2 . the low TA is a symptom of an overwhelmed being. When a pc’s TA goes low he is being overwhelmed by too heavy a process, too steep a gradient in applying processes or by rough TRs or invalidative auditing or auditing errors.
