Dictionary M N O P

MACHINE , 1 . an actual machine in the mind, (like ordinary machinery) constructed out of mental mass and energy, that has been made by the individual to do work for him, usually having been set up so as to come into operation automatically under certain predetermined circumstances. (Scn AD) 2 . a very special kind of circuit, and they have wheels and cogwheels and belts and barrels and steam boilers and electronic electrodes and dials and switches and meters, almost anything you can think of as a machine, you will find in some thetan’s bank as a machine, doing something that any machine does. (5 LACC-10, 5811C07) 3 . the individual got disinterested in what he was doing but he felt he had to go on doing it so he set it up automatically. (5410ClOD)

MAGNETIC FIELD, strong electrical currents produce in the vicinity of their flow what are called magnetic fields. If you wrap an electrical wire around a bar of iron and run current through the wire, you have a magnet. When you put a new piece of iron near this magnet the field of the magnet snaps the piece of iron up against the magnet. (HOM, p. 53)

MAJOR ACTION, any—but any—action designed to change a case or general considerations or handle continual illness or improve ability. This means a process or even a series of processes like three flows. It doesn’t mean a grade. It is any process the case hasn’t had. (HCOB 24 May 70R) MAJOR THOUGHT, by major thought is meant the complete thought being expressed in words by the auditor. (HCOB 25 May 62)

MAN , 1 . man is actually a body run by an awareness of awareness unit which has infinite survival power—even though it can get into a great deal of trouble. (Abil Mi 5) 2 . a structure of cells which are seeking to survive, and only to survive. (DMSMH, p. 50) 3 . a composite being of four distinct and divisible actualities: these parts are termed the thetan, the memory banks, the genetic entity and the body. (Scn 8-8008, p. 7) 4 . man is basically a machine only as far as his body goes. Man is otherwise a spiritual entity which has no finite survival. It has, this entity, an infinite survival. (Abil Mi 5) See HOMO SAPIENS.

MANAGEMENT POWER RUNDOWN, the Management Power Rundown was developed at Flag to increase the trained skill of any church student and greatly enhance the most valuable final product of a Church Academy—a student able to use and apply brilliantly, the skills taught. This rundown solves the basic why of learning slowness, misunderstoods, third dynamic and management aberration, chronic illness and what is commonly referred to as “psychosis.” (HCOB 11 Dec 70) Abbr. MPR.

MANIC, 1 . a highly complimentary prosurvival engram. (DMSMH, p. 233) 2 . an engram which is highly complimentary and any compliment which it contains in it will be obeyed to its most literal fullest extent. (5009CM28) 3 . the extremes of too quiet and never quiet have a number of psychiatric names such as “catatonia” (withdrawn totally) and “manic” (too hectic). (HCOB 24 Nov 65)

MANIC DEPRESSIVE, symptomatic of a person being next to an undetected suppressive. (SH Spec 67, 6509C21)

MARCAB CONFEDERACY, various planets united into a very vast civilization which has come forward up through the last 200,000 years, is formed out of the fragments of earlier civilizations. In the last 10,000 years they have gone on with a sort of a decadent kicked-in-the-head civilization that contains automobiles, business suits, fedora hats, telephones, spaceships. A civilization which looks almost exact duplicate but is worse off than the current U.S. civilization. (SH Spec 291, 6308C06)

MASS (IN THE GPM), 1. when we say m a s s we mean m a s s . It’s electronic standing waves actually, and they usually appear black to the pc and these become visible. (SH Spec 96, 6112C21) 2 . no more and no less than a confusion of mismanaged communication. (Dn 55 .!, p. 65)

MASSES, masses are masses and they are not by the way particles unless you consider particles as a subdivisible singular. Masses are something that are shed from a thetan by mock-up and particles are something that are shed from masses. That’s usually the way we find things. (17 ACC-5, 5703PM01)

MASTER PROCESS, one which ran out all other processes and processing. (HCOB 14 May 62)

MASTER PROGRAM, the master program for every case is given on the Classification and Gradation Chart issued from time to time. (HCOB 12 Jun 70)

MATCHED TERMINALS, the way one does matched terminals is to have the preclear facing the preclear or his father facing his father; in other words, two of each of anything, one facing the other. These two things will discharge one into the other. Thus running off the difficulty. (Scn 8-8008, p. 127) See also DOUBLE TERMINALING.

MATCHING TERMINALS, putting up a person facing a person, the same person facing the same person. (5304M07) See also DOUBLE TERMINALING.

MATERIALS OF SCIENTOLOGY, the materials of Scn are not its tools. Its tools are processes—its materials are books, tapes, Professional Auditor’s Bulletins, journals, letters and experience. (PAB 36)

MATERIAL UNIVERSE, the universe of matter, energy, space and time. (Scn Jour 16-G) MATTER, 1. a group of particles of energy located in a relatively stable relationship to each other. (9ACC-24, 5501C14) 2 . thought, effort and emotion all in one place at the same time. (PDC 62) 3 . a particle with no space to go anyplace. (PDC 16) 4 . it is evidently a very solid thought which is chaotic enough in its arrangement of attention units that you can’t do too much about it. (5206CM23B)

MAYBE, 1. simply a counter-balance insistence on must and must not. It is and it is not. And these things equally insistent add up into the indecisions of maybe. (SH Spee 28, 6107C12) 2. a maybe is a double flow or a controversion to such a degree that an individual is hung up on it. ( Spr Lect 17, 5304CM08) 3 . a confusion of beingness, a confusion of doingness, and a confusion of havingness, and it’s too badly balanced to resolve itself. (PDC 44) 4 . neither no nor yes. (PDC 15)

MCSC, Mini Course Supervisor’s Course. (HCO PL 5 Nov 72R)

MEAN GRAPH, not an average graph. It’s just a graph that a person isn’t in too bad shape, just sort of loused up, but they kind of know it. (SH Spec 22, 6106C28)

MECHANICAL ABERRATION, there is a type of aberration source which is simply the amount of charge there is on the case. This might be called mechanical aberration. It does not stern from specific commands but stems from mental inefficiency by reason of cumulative entheta. Entheta by itself can charge up a case to the point where the case will behave in certain definite ways regardless of the command content of the engrams. (SOS, Bk. 2, pp. 102-103)

MECHANICAL DEFINITION, called “mechanical” as it is defined in terms of distance and position. Mechanical in this sense means interpreting or explaining the phenomena of the universe by referring to causally determined physical forces; mechanistic. A being can put out objects to view (or anchor points) and also put out points which will view them, even while the being himself is elsewhere. Thus one can achieve space. “Mechanical” also applies to “acting or performing like a machine—automatic.” Thus a “mechanical definition” would be one which defined in terms of space or location such as “the car over by the old oak tree” or “the man who lives in the big house.” Here “the old oak tree” and “the big house” are fixed objects and the unfixed objects (“car,” “man”) are a sort of viewpoint. One has identified things by location. (LRH Def. Notes)

MECHANICS, 1. when we say mechanics we mean space, energy, objects and time. And when something has those things in it we’re talking about something mechanical. (PXL, p. 166) 2 . b y mechanics we mean any and all of the objects, motions, or spaces which exist. Mechanics are always quantitative. There is always just so much distance or so much mass or so many hours. We have a word for mechanics compounded from matter, energy, space, and time which is MEST. By MEST we mean any or all arrangements of energy of whatever kind, whether in fluid or object form, in space or spaces. (Dn 55 .!, p. 8)

MEDIUM CLEAN NEEDLE, offers many prior and latent reads, but reads instantly when a question is asked. (HCOB 14 Jun 62)

MEDIUM DIRTY NEEDLE, agitated throughout check but with periods of no agitation when a read can be obtained easily. Reacts to checker’s voice (rudiments checker). (HCOB 14 Jun 62)

MEGALOMANIA, a person who has delusions of grandeur, wealth, power, etc. (HCOB 11 May 65) MEL 4, Melbourne 4. Process from 1st Advanced Clinical Course in Melbourne. (BTB 20 Aug 71R II)

MEMORY, 1. a recording of the physical universe. Any memory contains a time index (when it happened) and a pattern of motion. As a lake reflects the trees and moving clouds, so does a memory reflect the physical universe. Sight, sound, pain,
emotion, effort, conclusions, and many other things are recorded in this static for any given instant of observation. Such a memory we call a facsimile. (Scn 8-80, p. 13) 2 . m e m o r y in Dn is considered to be any concept of perceptions stored in the standard memory banks which is potentially recallable by the “I.” (DMSMH, p. 61) 3. memory usually means recalling data of recent times. (NFP, p. 26) 4 . memory would have the connotation of you simply know it had happened. (SH Spec 84, 6612C13)

MEMORY BANKS, STANDARD, the analytical mind has its standard memory banks. Just where these are located structurally is no concern of ours at this time. To operate, the analytical mind has to have percepts (data), memory (data), and imagination (data), whether or not the data contained in the standard memory banks is evaluated correctly or not, it is all there. (DMSMH, p. 45)

MENTAL IMAGE PICTURES, 1. copies of the physical universe as it goes by. (6101C22) 2 . in Scn we call a mental image picture a facsimile when it is a “photograph” of the physical universe sometime in the past. We call a mental image picture a mock-up when it is created by the thetan or for the thetan and does not consist of a photograph of the physical universe. We call a mental image picture an hallucination or more properly an automaticity (something uncontrolled) when it is created by another and seen by self. (FOT, pp. 56-57)

MERCHANTS OF CHAOS, there are in our civilization some very disturbing elements. These disturbing elements are the Merchants of Chaos. They deal in confusion and upset. Their daily bread is made by creating chaos. If chaos were to lessen, so would their incomes. It is to their interest to make the environment seem as threatening as possible, for only then can they profit. Their incomes, force, and power rise in direct ratio to the amount of threat they can inject into the surroundings of the people. (NSOL, pp. 17-18) 2 . Merchant of F e a r o r Chaos Merchant and which we can now technically call the suppressive person. (HCO PL 5 Apr 65)

MERCHANTS OF FEAR, 1. probably the truly aberrative personalities in our society do not number more than five or ten per cent. They have very special traits. Where you find in the preclear’s bank a person with one or more of these characteristics, you will have the person who most thoroughly tried the preclear’s sanity. Such people would be better understood if I called them the “Merchants of Fear.” (PAB 13) 2 . We can now technically call the suppressive person. (HCO PL 5 Apr 65, Handling the Suppressive Person)

MESMERISM, mesmerism is no relation to hypnotism at all. Mesmerism is animal magnetism. It’s a physiological rapport, not a concentration on mental but on mental-physiological. (BTB 7 Apr 72R)

MEST , 1 . a coined word, meaning m a t t e r , e n e r g y , s p a c e a n d t i m e , the physical universe. All physical phenomena may be considered as energy operating in space and time. The movement of matter or energy in time is the measure of s p a c e . All things are m e s t except theta. (Abil 114-A) 2 . the symbol for the physical universe in use hereafter is mest, from the first letters of the words matter, energy, space and time, or the Greek letter phi (ø). (HFP, p. 166) 3 . simply a composite of energies and particles and spaces which are agreed upon and which are looked at. (PXL, p. 193) 4 . a solid object, and the space and energy and so forth which comprise such solid objects. (PDC 12) 5 . any or all arrangements of energy, of whatever kind, whether in fluid or object form, in space or spaces. (Dn 55 .!, p. 9)

MEST BODY, 1. the physical b o d y . The organism in all the mest aspects. (SOS Gloss) 2 . the mest body should not be thought of as a harbor or vessel for the theta being. A better example would be a sliver inserted unwantedly in the thumb where the thumb would be the theta being, the mest body the sliver. Mest bodies are good identification tags, they generate exciting emotions, they are fun to operate at times, but they are no end of existence. (HOM, p. 16)

MEST CLEAR, 1. by mest clear is meant a Book One clear. Here we defined clear in terms of facsimiles. This is a rather simple mechanical definition. It said in effect that so far as human beings were concerned our preclear finally arrived at a point where he had full color-visio-sonic, had no psychoses or neuroses and could recall what had happened to him in this lifetime. (SCP, p. 3) 2 . someone who knows he has reached the bottom rung of the ladder on his way up. He also knows the rest of humanity uncleared is below this state but that they don’t know that they are. A mest clear still thinks of himself more or less as a body and is more or less subject to one. All engrams are effectually keyed out without being examined. For practical purposes they are erased. He has excellent recalls. They may or may not be eidetic. (Abil 87) 3 . if a fellow can exist without synthetic beingnesses, which are solutions to problems he can’t confront, you’ve got a mest clear. He is still in a body. He’s got body beingness yet, but he’s gotten rid of these synthetic valences. (SH Spec 36, 6108C09)

MEST LOCKS, locks which come about through the inhibition or enforcement of the individual’s experience or control of matter or energy or space or time. It is postulated that the reduction of the mest locks in which the individual was made to go up or not permitted to come down will make any bouncer phrases in the case inactive, and so on with all types of action phrases. (SOS Gloss)

MEST PERCEPTICS, common garden-variety sense data— perceptions, new and recorded, of matter, energy, space, and time, and combinations of these. (SOS Gloss)

MEST PERCEPTION, recordings the thetan takes from the organs of perception of the human body as a short cut to perception (lazy perception). The body records actual wave emanations from the m e s t universe, the thetan uses these recordings. (Scn 8-8008 Gloss)

MEST REALITY, the reality which can be sensed, measured, and experienced in the physical universe. (SOS, p. 97)

MEST STRAIGHTWIRE, self-analysis. (5209CM04A)

MEST TECHNIQUE, straight-wire, repetitive straight-wire (slow, auditor-managed lock scanning), and lock scanning on mest locks. Language locks are found by straight-wire only as a clue to the underlying mest locks. Mest technique and validation technique may be combined and should be. (SOS Gloss)

MEST UNIVERSE, 1. that agreed-upon reality of matter, energy, space and time which we use as anchor points and through which we communicate. (Scn 8-8008, p. 27) 2 . a mutual system of barriers on which we have agreed so we can have a game. (5311CM17A) 3 . is a two-terminal universe. (Scn 8-8008, p. 31)

METALOSIS, Osis, Greek, action: process, condition abnormal or diseased condition caused by. Metal, any of a large group of substances (as bronze, steel) that typically show a characteristic luster, are good conductors of electricity and heat, are opaque, can be fused or are usually malleable or ductile. A psychosomatic condition caused by the interaction of body electric flows and the magnetic and other fields of metal. The effect takes a long time to occur. Engrams are formed. (LRH Def. Notes)

METALOSIS RUNDOWN, the procedure used in Expanded Dianetics to cure metalosis. (LRH Def. Notes) METAPHYSICS, 1. it means after physics because the original classes in it were given in the period which immediately followed the p h y s i c s period. That is where that gets its name, because it was the unexplained, inexplicable and upsetting things that no one knew the answer of. (Unidentified LRH tape) 2 . the study of the ultimate reality of all things. (B&C, p. 16) METER, see E-METER.

METER CHECK, 1. the action of checking the reaction of a student to subject matter, words or other things, isolating blocks to study, interpersonal relations or life. It is done with an E-meter. (HCOB 19 Jun 71 III) 2 . the procedure whereby an ethics officer or trained auditor establishes the state of a person in regard to ethical or technical matters by using the technology of the E-meter. (ISE, p. 40)

METER DEPENDENCE, meter dependence is created by invalidation by or poor acknowledgment of the auditor. If the auditor seems not to accept the pc’s data, then the pc may insist that the auditor “see it read on the meter.” This can grow up into a formidable meter dependence on the part of the pc. (HCOB 13 Apr 64, Scn VI Part One Tone Arm Action) M 1 to 9 (WC), see WORD CLEARING.



MGMT, management. (BPL 5 Nov 72RA)

MID-INTEGRITY PROCESSING SHORT ASSESSMENT, for use during an integrity processing session if a question won’t F/N but before starting that question, the TA range was 2-3, or there was an F/N. (BTB 7 Dec 72R)

MIDDLE RUDIMENTS, 1. middle rudiments are rudiments used one after another; inquiries about various rudiments during a session. Of course you are then to keep the session progressing and keep the rudiments in. (SH Spec 45, 6108C24) 2. the middle rudiment consists of a package question which handles suppressions, invalidations, missed withholds and “careful of.” This is your standard, basic middle rudiment. (SH Spec 155, 6205C31) 3 . middle rudiments may also contain (this is less often, but may also contain) the half-truths, untruths, impress and damage end rudiment; the question or command end rudiment; and the influence of the E-meter rudiment. (SH Spec 155, 6205C31) 4 . mid ruds are c a l l e d m i d r u d s because m i d d l e of session was the earliest use, plus rudiments of a session. (HCOB 14 Aug 64) MID RUDS, middle rudiments. (HCOB 23 Aug 65)

MIMICRY, 1. a non-verbal technique wherein the auditor mimics the preclear and persuades the preclear to mimic the auditor. Various processes are used, such as passing a ball back and forth between them, nodding, shaking hands, sitting down, standing up, walking across the room and back and sitting down, all of which are effective. (Dn 55 .!, p. 110) 2 . he does something, you do something [the same thing], and therefore he becomes aware that he’s doing it because he sees you doing it. (SH Spec 59, 6504C27)

MIND, 1. pictures which have been made of experiences and plotted against time and preserved in energy and mass in the vicinity of the being and which when restimulated are re-created without his analytical awareness. (SH Spec 72, 6607C28) 2 . a literal record of experience plotted against time from the earliest moment of aberration until now plus additional ideas the fellow got about it, plus other things he may have mocked up or created on top of it in mental mass, plus some machines, plus some valences. (SH Spec 70, 6607C21) 3 . a network of communications and pictures, energies and masses, which are brought into being by the activities of the thetan versus the physical universe or other thetans. The m i n d is a communication and control system between the thetan and his environment. (FOT, p. 56) 4 . the purpose of the mind is to pose and resolve problems relating to survival and to direct the effort of the organism according to these solutions. (Scn 0-8, p. 76) 5 . a natively self-determined computer which poses, observes and resolves problems to accomplish survival. It does its thinking with facsimiles of experience or facsimiles of synthetic experience. It is natively cause. It seeks to be minimally an effect. (HFP, p. 33) 6 . the human mind is an observer, postulator, creator and storage place of knowledge. (HFP, p. 163) 7 . the mind is a self-protecting mechanism and will not permit itself to be seriously overloaded so long as it can retain partial awareness of itself. (DMSMH, p. 165) 8 . the mind is composed of energy which exists in space and which condenses down into masses. (SH Spec 133, 6204C17)

MINOR T H O U G H T , b y m i n o r t h o u g h t s is meant subsidiary thoughts expressed by words within the major thought. They are caused by the reactivity of individual words within the full words. Example: “Have you ever injured dirty pigs?” To the pc the words “you,” “injured,” and “dirty” are all reactive. Therefore, the minor thoughts expressed by these words also read on the meter. (HCOB 25 May 62)

MINUS-FREEDOM, freedom is not the plus of a condition where slavery is the minus unless we are dealing entirely with the political organism. Where we are dealing with the individual better terminology is necessary and more understanding of the anatomy of minus-freedom is required. Minus- freedom is entrapment. Freedom is the absence of barriers. Less freedom is the presence of barriers. Entirely minus-freedom would be the omnipresence of barriers. (Dn 55 .!, p. 55)

MINUS RANDOMITY, 1. from the viewpoint of the individual, that thing which has too little motion in it for his tolerance is minus randomity. (Abil 36) 2 . a good statement of minus randomity would be: things are too slow. Things are certainly slow around here, life is dull, there is nothing happening. (Abil 36)

MINUS SCALE, the minus awareness levels of the Classification Gradation and Awareness Chart. (HCOB 20 Sept 66)

MINUS SCALE RELEASE, there are several Grades of Release below Zero, in the Minus Scale of the original complete Gradation Chart. Many of the Minus Scale can be attained by simple assessment. (And ceasing to assess the moment the release occurs is vital—don’t keep on assessing as the same session auditing action . ) There are three specific Grades of Release below Zero and above the lower Minus Scale. These are, from lowest: Straightwire Release, Dianetic Secondary Release, Dianetic Engram Release. (HCOB 20 Sept 66)

MINUS TONE SCALE, the subtones below the Emotional Tone Scale which are so low as to constitute by the individual a no-affinity, no-emotion, no-problem, no- consequence state of mind on things which are actually tremendously important. (Scn AD)

MIS-ACKNOWLEDGMENT, there are many ways to misacknowledge a pc. But any mis-acknowledgment is only and always a failure to end the cycle of a command. If the pc is not sure he has answered and that the auditor has accepted the answer, the pc will get no benefit from the auditing. (PAB 145)

MISASSESSMENT, multiple item or narrative item or both or taking an item that doesn’t read or in which pc has no interest. (HCOB 9 Aug 69)

MISASSIST, an incident wherein the preclear has tried to help on some dynamic and failed. (HOM, p. 75)

MISCELLANEOUS REPORT, a report such as an MO report, a D of P interview, an ethics report, a success story, etc. which is put in the pc’s folder and gives a C/S more information about the case. (BTB 3 Nov 72R)

MISDIRECTOR, 1. a phrase which, when the auditor sends the preclear in one direction, makes the preclear go in another direction. (SOS, p. 106) 2 . a command which sends the preclear in the wrong direction, makes him go earlier when he should be going later, go later when he should go earlier, etc. “You can’t go back at this point,” “You’re turned around,” etc. (DMSMH, p. 213)

MISEMOTION, 1. anything that is unpleasant emotion such as antagonism, anger, fear, grief, apathy or a death feeling. (HCOB 23 Apr 69) 2. emotion and misemotion include all levels of the complete tone scale except “pain”; emotion and misemotion are closely allied to “motion,” being only a finer particle action. (HCOB 19 Jan 67)

MISEMOTIONAL, 1. such a word would indicate that a person did not display the emotion called for by the actual circumstances of the situation. (SOS, p. 49) 2 . being misemotional is synonymous with being irrational. (SOS, p. 49)

MIS-MEMORY, forgettingness. (Abil SW, p. 11)

MISPROGRAMMED, the current program has neglected or misplaced an urgently needed action. (BTB 23 Oct 71 V)

MISSED OVERT, a done, that people didn’t find out about. (SH Spec 181, 6208C07)

MISSED WITHHOLD, 1. an undisclosed contra-survival act which has been restimulated by another but not disclosed. (HCOB 3 May 62) 2 . a m i s s e d withhold is a should have known. The pc feels you should have found out about something and you didn’t. (SH Spec 136, 6204C24) 3 . t h e m i s s e d withhold is something people nearly found out. It’s another person’s action. It’s nothing the pc did or is doing. It is another person’s action and the pc’s wonder about it. (SH Spec 206, 6211C01) Abbr. M/W/H .

MISSED WITHHOLD OF NOTHING, 1. there is nothing there, yet the auditor tries to get it and the pc ARC breaks. This gives the pc a missed withhold of nothing. (HCO PL 16 Apr 65) 2 . “cleaning” a rudiment that has already registered null gives the pc a missed withhold of nothingness. His nothingness was not accepted. The pc has no answer. A missed no-answer then occurs. To ask again something already null is to leave the pc baffled—he has a missed withhold which is a nothingness. (HCOB 4 Jul 62)

MISSED WITHHOLD PROGRAM, where the auditor searched for and found when and where withholds had been available but had been MISSED. (HCOB 8 Feb 62) MISSION, a group granted the privilege of delivering elementary Scn and Dn services. Does not have Church status or rights. (BTB 12 Apr 72R) MO, medical officer. (Abil 272)

MOCKERY BAND, there is a little band down very close to death on the tone scale which is a mockery band and in that band anything that’s in that band is a mockery of anything higher. (5405CM12) MOCK-UP, v. 1. to get an imaginary picture of. (COHA, p. 100) —n. 1. “mock- u p ” is derived from the World War II phrase which indicated a symbolized weapon or area of attack. Here, it means in essence, something which a person makes up himself. (Scn Jour, Iss 14-G) 2. a mock-up is more than a mental picture; it is a self-created object which exists as itself or symbolizes some object in the mest universe. It is a thing which one can be. (Scn Jour, Iss 14-G) 3 . a full perceptic energy picture in three dimensions created by the thetan and having location in space and time. Now, that’s the ideal definition. A mock-up is something the thetan puts up and says is there. That’s what a mock-up is. (9ACC-24, 5501C14) 4 . we call a mental image picture a mock-up when it is created by the thetan or for the thetan and does not consist of a photograph of the physical universe. (FOT, pp. 56-57) 5 . any knowingly created mental picture that is not part of a time track. (HCOB 15 May 63)

MODEL SESSION, 1. the same exact pattern and script (patter) with which an auditing session is begun and ended; the overall form of all Scn auditing sessions which is the same anywhere in the world. (Scn AD) 2 . its wording is very fixed. All refinements of model session are in the direction of causing less ARC breaks and getting more auditing done. (SH Spec 289, 6307C24) 3 . the patter wording of a model session is what is said and fixed. By always using the same words to open, continue and close a session, to begin and end processes, a duplication of sessions is achieved which as they continue, runs them out. The patter wording of a model session should be learned by heart and not changed. (HCOB 26 Aug 60)

MODIFIER, a modifier is that consideration which opposes the attainment of a goal and tends to suspend it in time. Example: goal, “to be a willow wand;” modifier, “so as never to be reached.” (HCOB 7 Nov 61)

MOISTURE PERCEPTION, moisture perception permits us to sense the dampness or dryness of the atmosphere and so judge further our environment. (SOS, p. 59) M 1 C S 1 , 1 . m e t h o d 1 word clearing CS 1 . [as in case supervisor direction.] (HCOB 14 Sept 71 II Revised 24 Sept 71) [Note this HCOB has been cancelled by HCOB 14 June 73 Word Clearing C/S No. 1R Canceled.] 2 . standard C/S for word clearing in session Method 1. (HCOB 30 Jun 71 II) M 1 W C , M e t h o d O n e w o r d c l e a r i n g . (HCO PL 8 Jan 72 I) See WORD CLEARING.

MONEY ASSIST, this action is simply a tool and use of our tech to get the result of the person able to handle the subject of money and take the major services of the Church. (BTB 1 Jul 73, Money Assist) MONITOR, could be called the center of awareness of the person. It, inexactly speaking, is the person. It has been approximated by various names for thousands of years, each one reducing down to “I.” The monitor is in control of the analytical mind. (DMSMH, p. 43)

MOOD DRILLS, developed to handle stuck or fixated auditor m o o d s or where some auditor’s mood entered into the session would rough up or upset a pc or slow his progress. Mood drills consist of TRs 1 to 4 done out of session on each tone level of the full tone scale, hitting each mood up and down the scale. The coach calls the m o o d , the auditor does TRs 1 to 4 in that m o o d . It doesn’t really require much coaching. “You just start low on the scale and TR that mood then the next, then the next. Like, all TRs done “hopeless,” etc. Lots of laughs doing it really. Doing TRs as a dead auditor is pretty tricky.” Once begun mood drills should be continued until the whole scale is flat so the auditor doesn’t get stuck on the tone scale but can do any mood easily and without strain. (BTB 13 Mar 75)

MORAL CODE, 1. that series of agreements to which a person has subscribed to guarantee the survival of a group. (SH Spec 62, 6110C04) 2 . a series of solutions to problems which have not been confronted or analyzed. (SH Spec 27X, 6107C04) MORALS, n. pl. 1. the principles of right and wrong conduct. (HCO PL 3 May 72) 2. morals should be defined as a code of good conduct laid down out of the experience of the race to serve as a uniform yardstick for the conduct of individuals and groups. Such a codification has its place; morals are actually laws. Morals are, to some degree, arbitraries, in that they continue beyond their time. All morals originate out of the discovery by the group that some act contains more pain than pleasure. (SOS, p. 129) 3 . are things which were introduced into the society to resolve harmful practices which could not be explained or treated in a rational manner. (5008C30) 4 . those things which are considered to be at any given time survival characteristics. A survival action is a moral action and those things are considered immoral which are considered contrasurvival. (SH Spec 62, 6110C04) 5 . an arbitrary code of conduct not necessarily related to reason. (Scn 8-8008, p. 100)

MORES, are those things which make a society possible. They are the heavily agreed- upon, policed codes of conduct of a society. (PAB 40) MOTION, 1. uncomfortable perceptions stemming from the reactive mind are called sensation. These are basically “pressure,” “motion,””dizziness,” “sexual sensation,” and “emotion and misemotion.” “Motion” is just that, a feeling of being in motion when one is not. “Motion” includes the “winds of space,” a feeling of being blown upon especially from in front of the face. (HCOB 19 Jan 67) 2 . dimension points, by shifting, can give the viewpoint the illusion of motion. The viewpoint, by shifting, can give the dimension points the illusion of motion. Motion is the manifestation of change of viewpoint of dimension points. (Scn 8-8008, p. 16) 3 . is a consecutive appear and disappear in infinitely small gradients. (2ACC-19A, 5312CM09) 4 . a change of position in space. (HFP, p. 110)

MOTIVATOR, 1. an aggressive or destructive act received by the person or one of the dynamics. It is called a motivator because it tends to prompt that one pays it back—it “motivates” a new overt. (HCOB 20 May 68) 2 . something which the person feels has been done to him, which he is not willing to have happen. (HCO Info Ltr 2 Sept 64) 3 . an act received by the person or individual causing injury, reduction or degradation of his beingness, person, associations or dynamics. (HCOB 1 Nov 68 II) 4 . an overt act against oneself by another. In other words, a motivator is a harmful action performed by somebody else against oneself. (8ACC-14, 5410CM20)

MOTIVATOR HUNGER, 1. a motivator is called a “motivator” because it tends to prompt an overt. It gives a person a motive or reason or justification for an overt. When a person commits an overt or overt of omission with no motivator he tends to believe or pretends that he has received a motivator which does not in fact exist. This is a false motivator. Beings suffering from this are said to have “motivator hunger” and are often aggrieved over nothing. (HCOB 1 Nov 68) 2 . Homo sapiens goes around trying to get force applied hard enough so that he gets sympathy for it and we call that motivator hunger. (2ACC-30B, 5312CM21 )

MOTIVATORISH CASE, a preclear who only gets off motivators in a session. The motivator case is well aware that each motivator answer is not truly real, but reactively he is incapable of looking at the cause side of the picture and considers any effort on the part of anyone to attempt to get him to do so as an effort on the part of that person to punish him or to make him guilty. Such a person has many overts of blaming others and uses any motivator a s a justification of his overts against others. (BTB 12 Jul 62)

MOTIVATOR-OVERT ACT, whereby something is done to the preclear and then the preclear does the same thing to somebody else. (PAB 18)

MOTOR CONTROL TIME TRACK, this time track is not connected to the analytical mind and speech, but is apparently a parallel time track with greater reliability than the sensory track. The precision of data contained in the motor control time track is enormous. The motor strip time track can be asked questions down to the smallest moment of time, and the area of an engram can be so located and its character determined. (DTOT, pp. 88-89) MOTOR STRIP, the pc’s sensory perceptions. (Exp Jour, Winter Spring, 1950)


MPR, see MANAGEMENT POWER RUNDOWN. M S , model session. (HCO PL 8 Dec 62) MSH, Mary Sue Hubbard. (HCOB 23 Aug 65) M/U or MIS-U, abbreviation for misunderstood. (BTB 12 Apr 72R)

MULTIPLE ACKS, see DOUBLE ACKS. MULTIPLE DECLARE, declaring Grades 0 to IV all at one time mostly without any mention of the end phenomena of the grade. (HCOB 30 Jun 70R)

MULTIPLE ILLNESS, the preclear is physically uncomfortable or ill from several engrams of different types all restimulated. (HCOB 23 Apr 69) MULTIPLE SOMATICS, several somatics as one item. (HCOB 19 May 69, Health Form, Use of)

MULTIVALENCE, valens means “powerful” in Latin. It is a good term because it is the second half of ambivalent (power in two directions) and exists in any good dictionary. It is a good term because it describes (although the dictionary did not mean it to) the intent of the organism when dramatizing an engram. Multivalence would mean “many powerfuls.” It would embrace the phenomena of split personality, the strange differences of personality in people in one and then another situation. Valence in Dn means the personality of one of the dramatic personnel in an engram. (DMSMH, p. 80)

MURDER ROUTINE, a slang title for the “worse than” technique. One gets the pc to give off his overts by inferring he has done very bad things, including murder. Auditor, “Did you murder your wife?” PC, “Oh no! I only cheated on her!” Described in full in BTB 30 Aug 72 I, issued 28 Mar 74 Ex Dn Series 8 . Actually developed in 1961 in South Africa. (LRH Def. Notes)

MUTTER TR, a drill to perfect the muzzled auditing comm cycle. (1) The coach has student give command. (2) Coach mutters an unintelligible answer at different times. (3) Student acknowledges. (4) Coach flunks if student does anything else but acknowledge. This is the entirety of this drill. It is not to be confused with any other training drill. (HCOB 1 Oct 65R)

MUTUALLY RESTIMULATIVE, two people may discover that they are mutually restimulative—which is to say each is a pseudo-person in the other’s engrams or one is restimulated (voice tone, incidents) by the other. (DMSMH, p. 389)

MUTUAL OUT RUDS, this means two or more people who mutually have ruds out on the wider group or other dynamics and do not get them in. (HCOB 17 Feb 74)

MUZZLED AUDITING, 1. stating only the model session patter and commands and TRs. It always gets the best results. (HCOB 20 Jul 72 II) 2 . this could also be called rote style auditing. Muzzled auditing has been with us many years. It is the stark total of TRs 0 to 4 and not anything else added. Repetitive command auditing, using TRs 0 to 4, at Level I is done completely muzzled. (HCOB 6 Nov 64) 3 . in muzzled auditing, the auditor says only two things. He gives the command and acknowledges the answer to that command. If the pc says anything that is not an answer to that command, the auditor nods his head and awaits an answer before giving acknowledgment. (HCOB 25 Mar 59)

MUZZLED COACHING, the coach says fine when he thinks it is fine and otherwise keeps his mouth shut. This is muzzled coaching. (HCOB 29 Sept 59) MW/H (also M/W/H), missed withhold. (HCOB 23 Aug 65)

MYSTERY, 1. the anatomy of mystery is unprediction, confusion and then total blackout. Mystery is the level of always pretending there’s always something to know earlier than the m y s t e r y . (PXL, p. 170) 2 . oblivion of knowing. (COHA, p. 151) 3 . the glue that sticks thetans to things. (SH Spec 206, 6211C01)

MYSTERY SANDWICH, 1. the principle of mystery is, of course, this: the only way anybody gets stuck to anything is by a mystery sandwich. A person cannot be connected to his body, but he can have a mystery between him and his body which will connect him. You have to understand this thing about the mystery sandwich. It’s two pieces of bread, one of which represents the body, and one of which represents the thetan, and the two pieces of bread are pulled together by a mystery. They are kept together by a volition to know the mystery. (PAB 66) 2 . a thetan stuck to anything is of course just a mystery sandwich. Thetan, mystery, object—mystery sandwich. (SH Spec 48, 6108C31)

MYSTICAL MYSTIC, Slang. a type of case. The person will be totally reasonable about anything that happens in his vicinity but not do anything about it, and see nothing but good in anything including murdering babies. (SH Spec 42, 6410C13) MYSTIQUE, qualifications or skills that set a person or thing apart and beyond the understanding of an outsider. (HCO PL 29 Oct 71 III)

NARCOSYNTHESIS, 1. a complicated name for a very ancient process quite well known in Greece and India. It is drug hypnotism. A shot of sodium pentothal is given intravenously to the patient and he is asked to count backwards. It is actually a depressant on the awareness of an individual so that those attention units which remain behind the curtain of his reactive mind can be reached directly. (DMSMH, p. 123) 2 . the practice of inducing sleep with drugs and then talking to the patient to draw out buried thoughts. (EOS, p. 24)

NARRATIVE C H A I N , 1 . a c h a i n of similar experiences rather than a similar somatic. (HCOB 23 May 69) 2 . these are by repeating story. By incident description. (HCOB 27 Jan 70)

NARRATIVE ITEM, 1. is one which will land the pc in a single incident for which there is no chain. Flagrant example: “The time the horse Baldy dumped me in the Potomac.” Obviously, there was only one such incident. (HCOB 27 Jan 70) 2 . a narrative item describes only one possible incident. (HCOB 27 Mar 71)

NATIVE STATE , 1 . the potentiality of knowing everything. (SH Spec 35, 6108C08) 2 . the list of no games conditions is a summary of the native state of a thetan. (HCOB 3 Sept 56) 3 . the thetan is not in contact with space, energy, mass. He doesn’t have any dimension. (PAB 64) 4. the native state thetan is total knowingness. (Op Bull 1)

NATTER, sometimes pcs who have big overts become highly critical of the auditor and get in a lot of snide comments about the auditor. Such natter always indicates a real overt. (HCOB 7 Sept 64 II)

NATURAL AUDITOR, the natural auditor ties right into it and does a workmanlike job. He or she gets lots of bulletin and tape passes in ratio to flunks, absorbs data well and gets it into practice, does a passable job on a pc even at the start of training, and improves case-wise rapidly under the skilled training and auditing. (HCOB 8 Mar 62)

NATURAL TRs, spoken TRs are natural. TRs are for use in life and in the auditing room. There is no uncomfortable robot execution or straining of voice. (BTB 18 Aug 71R) NCG, no case gain despite good and sufficient auditing. (HCO PL 12 May 72)

NECESSITY LEVEL, 1. that amount of urgency or commotion necessary in the environment to extrovert the individual and put him into motion in present time. (5501C14) 2 . a sudden heightened willingness which untaps a tremendous amount of ability. (PAB 129) 3 . the emergency factor. A sudden increase of randomity to a sufficiency that the individual makes a momentary adjustment to it. In other words, it momentarily increases his tolerance for unexpected motion. (Abil 56)

NEEDLE PATTERN, 1. it is a chronic and constant needle behavior on a particular pc when the auditor is saying and doing nothing. It’s not a needle response. It’s a needle appearance when the auditor is saying or doing nothing. (SH Spec 224, 6212C13) 2. a pattern is a series of missed withholds culminating in a constantly active needle. A pattern can be a big dirty needle or a little dirty needle. In other words a wide dial dirty needle or a small dial dirty needle. (SH Spec 145, 6205C15)

NEEDLE REACTIONS, rise, fall, speeded rise, speeded fall, double tick (dirty needle), theta bop or any other action. (HCOB 25 Apr 63)

NEEDLE REACTIONS ABOVE GRADE IV, a response like a brief dirty needle on a pre-OT means “No” always. A real dirty needle is constant and continuous. The same small jerky needle action on a person Grade V or above means “No” or that the question is negative. (HCOB 18 Apr 68)


NEGATIVE BLOWDOWN, when a TA has gone below 2 .0 and a relief of the condition occurs, the TA will b l o w U P to normal range. Hence, negative blowdown, as it is the reverse of a normal blowdown. Mentioned in BTB 7 Feb 71 II reissued 7 Aug 74, Cancellation. (LRH Def. Notes)

NEGATIVE GAIN, you can erase engrams, that’s taking away. You get actually negative gain. By the removal of the harmful thing you can get a positive advance. That’s called negative gain. (ESTO 6, 7203C03 SO II)

NEGATIVE POSTULATE, the postulate not to be. It cancels past postulates and it also cancels, in greater or lesser degree, the entire individual. (AP&A, p. 34) N E R V O U S N E S S , 1 . that condition which results from having one’s space as occupied, made untenable. (PDC 48) 2 . distracted attention. (Spr Lect 14, 5304CM07)

NEUROSIS, 1. an emotional state containing conflicts and emotional data inhibiting the abilities or welfare of the individual. (DTOT, p. 58) 2 . singly the effect of things, deranged being on some subject. (SH Spec 70, 6607C21) 3 . antisocial action or anti-survival action which is compulsively undertaken by the individual. (SH Spec 299, 6308C27) 4 . he’s got some idea of what’s happening, where he is on some things and some faint idea what’s happening in his environment on some things. But generally unknowingness overbalances the knowingness and so you get a neurosis. (SH Spec 41, 6108C17) 5 . a habit which worsening, flies entirely out of control. One is stopped so often in life that he becomes an enemy of stopping and dislikes stopping so intensely that he himself will not stop things. Neurosis and psychosis of all classes are entirely inabilities to start, to change or to stop. (FOT, p. 68)

NEUROTIC, 1. considered to be below 2 . 5 . The neurotic has thorough concern about the future to the degree that he has many more fears about the future than he has goals in the future. He spends much of his time pondering the past. He acts and then wonders if he has acted correctly and is sure he has not. Thoughts to him are as solid as mest. He is overwhelmed by sudden counter-efforts. He is operating on a sub-control center which has been itself very blunted. He is ill much of the time to a greater or lesser degree. He has colds. He brings “bad luck” and disaster. He is Homo sapiens at his “rational worst.” (AP&A, p. 38) 2 . a neurotic is a person who has some obsession or compulsion which overmasters his self-determinism to such a degree that it is a social liability. (Spr Lect 9, 5303CM27) 3 . identified by the preclear having mock-ups which will not persist or which won’t go away. (COHA, p. 232) 4 . a person who is mainly harmful to himself by reason of his aberrations, but not to the point of suicide. (SOS, pp. 25-26) 5 . the computation of present time only. (Scn 0-8, p. 89)

NEW PRECLEAR, never before audited. (HCOB 5 Apr 69)

NINTH DYNAMIC, 1. “the buck.” (5203CM05A) 2 . aesthetics. (PDC 2) N I P , you take two energy beams and you slap them together just back of a guy’s ears. (PDC 27) N I P P I N G , 1 . you close down over the head of some mest body and you go “bat” and you really shoot the horsepower to him, the voltage, for just a split instant. (5206CM28A) 2 . an overt act of the thetan is nipping by which he harasses other thetans, nipping mest beings which usually kills them dead much to the thetan’s surprise. (HOM, p. 50)

NO AUDITING, while seeming to deliver auditing, actually getting nothing done. Going through endless, useless motions, perhaps in top form, perhaps perfectly, none of which are calculated to advance the pc’s case one inch. (HCOB 30 Dec 62)

NO CASE GAIN, 1. persons with heavy overts on Scn make no case progres6. (HCOB 23 Nov 62) 2 . no TA actions in auditing or “little TA” (less than ten divs per session). (HCO PL 5 Apr 65) 3 . no case-change despite good tries with the routine processes. (HCO PL 5 Apr 65 II)

NO-GAIN-CASE, 1. the suppressive person is a specialist in making others ARC break with generalized entheta that is mostly lies. He or she is also a no-gain- case. So avid are such for the smashing of others by covert or overt means that their case is bogged and won’t move under routine processing. (HCO PL 5 Apr 65, Handling the Suppressive Person) 2 . such a person has withholds, he or she can’t communicate freely to as-is the block on the track that keeps them in some yesterday. Hence, a “no-case-gain.” (HCO PL 5 Apr 65, Handling the Suppressive Person) 3 . this c a s e performs continual calculating covert hostile acts damaging to others. This c a s e puts the enturbulence and upset into the environment, breaks the chairs, messes up the rugs and spoils the traffic flow with “goofs” done intentionally. (HCO PL 5 Apr 65, Handling the Suppressive Person) 4 . the “withholdy case that ARC breaks easily,” “the blowy student” “unstable gain student.” (HCO PL 5 Apr 65 II)

NO-GAME, preponderance of win or a preponderance of lose. (PAB 73) NO-GAME CONDITIONS, 1. no-game conditions are: knowing all, not- knowing everything, serenity, namelessness, no-effect on opponent, effect on self or team, have everything, can’t have nothing, solutions, pan-determinism, friendship with all, understanding, total communication, no communication, win, lose, no universe, no playing field, arrival, death. (FOT, p. 94) 2 . a totality of barriers and a totality of freedom alike are no-game conditions. (PAB 84) 3 . reached by a preponderance of win (no-game) or a preponderance of lose (no- game). (Op Bull No. 17)

NO HAVINGNESS, 1. is defined as something that a person can’t reach or doesn’t permit itself to be reached. (SH Spec 103, 6201C23) 2 . n o h a v i n g n e s s is prevented reach; in other words, the concept of no reach. (SH Spec 97, 6201C09)

NO-INTERFERENCE AREA, (zone) from R6 Solo to OT III one does not do anything except keep the pc winning for R6 Solo to OT III. This is the critical band of the gradation chart. From R6 to OT III you have a closed band for other major actions. (HCOB 23 Dec 71) 2 . where drugs have not been handled or only partially have been handled, the no interference zone rule is waived. (HCOB 31 May 74)

NOMENCLATURE, the set of terms used to describe things in a particular subject. (Aud 73 ASNO)

NO MENTION, a no mention of well done or very well done or anything simply means: (1) F/N did not get to examiner, (2) no major auditing errors exist in the session. (HCOB 21 Aug 70)

NON-COMMUNICATION, a non-communication consists of barriers. (COHA, p. 18) NON-CYCLICAL PROCESS, a repetitive process which does not cause the preclear to cycle on the time track. (HCOB 29 Sept 65) NON-EXTANT ENGRAM, a n “engram” sometimes didn’t exist. A pc can be trying to run being run over by a car when he never was. (HCOB 20 May 68)

NON-READING ITEM, one that did not read when originated or cleared and also did not read when called. (HCOB 28 Feb 71)

NON-VOCAL LOCK SCANNING, the preclear recognizes the phrases as he goes by them incident to incident, from early to late, but does not tell the auditor what phrases he is contacting. (SOS, Bk. 2, p. 126)

NO OVERTS CASE, a case that “has never committed any overts.” Such a person might for example never seem to have anything on F-2 . (BTB 22 Oct 70R)

NO RANDOMITY, below minus randomity is no randomity of any kind. One could be at this point for two reasons: because he is shuddering away from confusion or he could be at that point because he has a tremendous tolerance for confusion and for motionlessness. (Abil 36, p. 9)

NO RESPONSIBILITY, 1. unwillingness to make a decision or unwillingness to make a condition of being is the highest essence of no responsibility. (PDC 7) 2 . the inability to handle force. (PDC 28)

NORMAL, type of case. The so-called normal is used here to be at around 2 .5 to 3 .0 on the tone scale. He is partially extroverted, partially introverted. He spends considerable time with his calculations. He evaluates slowly even when he has the data, and then postulates without realizing too much about his postulation. He has much in the past which he does not care to recall. He has much in his present which gives him concern. His future goals are rather well nullified by future fears. He is Homo sapiens. He is in terrible condition, taken from the viewpoint of Homo novis. He is in excellent condition from the viewpoint of past “ologies.” (AP&A, p. 37)

NORTH TO APATHY, Slang. pcs, I discover, go from minus tone scale up to being able to have problems or tone or solids. Any case has some point that goes from no-effect or unreal or don’t care, up t o a p a t h y . Cases go north to apathy. (HCOB 20 Aug 56)

NO SYMPATHY, 1. it’s a blackout, it’s an occlusion. “I’m not going to feel s y m p a t h y for it” is actually the phrase that goes with the concept. (5208CM07B) 2 . he’s bound and determined not to be sympathetic, and that’s the emotion of no sympathy. (5208CM07B) 3 . is an emotion and an action. One puts a black curtain before himself to prevent his feeling affinity with that which he is hurting. (Scn 8-80, p. 49) N O T A , less than ten divisions per session (21/2 hours). (HCO PL 5 Apr 65, Handling the Suppressive Person) See also, TONE ARM ACTION.

NOT BEINGNESS, is an acceptance of control by the environment and abdication even of control of self. (AP&A, p. 51)

NOT DOING THE AUDITING COMMAND, is defined as simply not executing it, or doing something else, or executing the auditing command indifferently and then doing something else. (SH Spec 60, 6109C28)

NOTHINGNESS, 1. an absence of everything: no time, no space, no energy, no thought. (5501C14) 2 . an absence of quantities and locations. (5501C14)

NO-TIME MOMENTS, the only things which float on the time track are the moments of silence when no communication occurred. These are no-time moments and so have no time in which they can live, and so they float forward on the time track. (Dn 55 .! p. 95)

NOT IN PRESENT TIME, a person who is talking on another subject than that to which cause was giving his attention. He has experienced such-a scarcity of communication elsewhere, that he is still involved with communication elsewhere. This is what we mean by “not in present time.” (Dn 55! p. 76)

NOT-IS-NESS, 1. trying to put out of existence by postulate or force something which one knows, priorly, exists. One is trying to talk against his own agreements and postulates with his new postulates, or is trying to spray down something with the force of other is-nesses in order to cause a cessation of the is- ness he objects to. (PXL, p. 64) 2 . not-is-ness is the effort to handle is-ness by reducing its condition through the use of force. It is an apparency and cannot entirely vanquish an is-ness. (PXL, p. 154) 3 . there are two different conditions of not-is-ness: one is just vanishment. The other one is an is-ness which somebody is trying to postulate out of existence by simply saying, “It isn’t.” A not-is-ness, in our terminology, would be this second specialized case of an individual trying to vanish something without taking responsibility for having created it. (PXL, p. 100) 4 . not-is-ness is manifested as and is in itself the mechanism we know as unreality. (PXL, p. 55)

NOT-IS STRAIGHTWIRE, this is the direct cure of not-is-ness; and where you have a case that is running a bad not-is a process can evidently be invalidated or not-ised when the individual is out of session, or overnight. This is what Not- is Straightwire cures. (PAB 155)

NOT KNOW, 1. trying not to remember. (FOT, p. 84) 2 . an actual ability to “not know” is an ability to erase by self-command the past without suppressing it with energy or going into any other method. (PAB 87) 3 . in its most extreme manifestation is unconsciousness. Not-know in a lesser manifestation is death. The most extreme manifestation is when a person cannot go unconscious and we call that insanity. (SH Spec 15X, 6106C15)

NOT KNOWINGNESS, 1. being in present time and not in the past or the future. (PAB 88) 2 . mystery. (COHA, p. 16)

NO TONE ARM ACTION, there is no meter registry of change on the meter control lever (tone arm). (HCO PL 5 May 65) See also

NO TA. NOT THERE, dispersed, hiding himself, being vague, not there most of the time. (FOT, p. 29)

NULLABLE, the condition a list must be in order to have an item found on it. (HCOB 5 Dec 62)

NULLABLE LIST, is one where items just go out very easily and the needle doesn’t dirty up to amount to anything. (SH Spec 220, 6211C29)

NULLIFICATION, the method of handling others wherein the individual seeks to minimize individuals, to be more than they and so to be able to control them. This category would rather see a man sick than well, because sick men are less dangerous than well men according to the “thinking” that takes place in this band. (SOS, p. 155)

NULLING, the auditor’s action in saying items from a list to a pc and noting the reaction of the pc by use of an E-meter. (HCOB 5 Dec 62)

NULL NEEDLE, 1. means it doesn’t get a change of pattern or a react on the question. ( SH Spec 1, 6105C07) 2 . the needle continuing to behave in an action uninfluenced by the auditing question. (BIEM, p. 40) N

ULL SUBJECTS, uncharged subjects. (HCOB 8 Oct 71 III)

NUTRITION, support of the organism by organic and inorganic means (food, water, air, sunlight) during all of the present life, from conception or thereabouts to death. The nutrition of a genetic line, or course, would pass from parents to children in the forms of organic inheritance and gestation environment. (SOS Gloss) o 0 = , denotes an item which simply has the requirement of you reading, understanding and attesting in the space opposite the item on the check-sheet. Your initials in the space provided indicate that you have read, understood and can apply the data concerned. (HCO PL 13 Apr 71)

OBJECT, 1. an object could be considered to be any unit manifestation of energy including matter. It has been found that the duration of an o b j e c t roughly approximates its solidity. (Scn 8-8008, p. 14) 2 . objects consist of grouped particles. (PRO 13, 5408C20) 3 . a condensed piece of energy. (PDC 46)

OBJECTIVE, dictionary definition “of or having to do with a material object as distinguished from a mental concept, idea or belief.” Means here and now objects in PT as opposed to “subjective.” (HCOB 2 Nov 57RA)

OBJECTIVE DUB-IN, the manifestation of putting, unknowingly, perceptions which do not in actual fact exist, in the environment. (HCOB 11 May 65)

OBJECTIVE ENVIRONMENT, is the environment everyone agrees is there. (HFP Gloss)

OBJECTIVE HAVINGNESS PROCESSES, objective duplication increase. (HCOB 29 Sept 60)

OBJECTIVE PROCESSES, 1. objective processes deal with body motions and observing and touching objects in the auditing room. (HCOB 30 Sept 71 V) 2 . Iook around or physical contact processes are obviously “objective.” Pcs who have been on drugs obviously have to be run on objective not subjective processes. Anyone can be brought more into present time with objective processes. (HCOB 2 Nov 57RA)

OBNOSIS, 1 . t h e o b s e r v a t i o n o f t h e o b v i o u s ; the ability to look at the obvious. (SH Spec 48, 6411C04) 2 . this is a coined (invented) word meaning observing the obvious. There is no English or any other language precise equivalent for it. (HCO PL 26 Jun 72)

OBSERVER, condition where the preclear cannot be anything— cannot occupy a source point or receipt point. (COHA, p. 169)

OBSESSION, he’s just returning motion on something where he’s had too much motion thrown at him on this subject. That’s an o b s e s s i o n , and that’s all an obsession is. It’s just bouncing back the motion which has been bounced at him. (5206CM24C)

OBSESSIVE COMMUNICATION, an outflow which is not pertinent to the surrounding terminals and situation. In other words, compulsive or obsessive communication is an outflow which is not in reality with the existing reality. (Dn 55 .!, p. 93) OCA GRAPH, 1. personality graph, Oxford Capacity Analysis. (HCOB 7 Sept 71) 2 . a specially prepared graph which plots ten traits of a pc’s personality from a personality test taken by the pc. (BTB 5 Nov 72 IV)

OCCLUDED, memory not available for recall. Someone who is occluded has a poor memory and poor recalls of the past. (NSOL, p. 144)

OCCLUDED CASE, 1. is fixed, most likely, in the effort of a heavy facsimile. The occluded case is using a service facsimile so heavily that it is in constant re-stimulation, and that service facsimile is occluded by heavy effort. The occluded case complains of illness, ordinarily. (AP&A, p. 41) 2 . y o u r occluded case is simply a balled-up track. (5206CM24F) 3 . simply a heavily ridged case. (5203CM04B)

OCCLUSION, 1. something hidden, an o c c l u s i o n of memory is something forgotten, i.e. not available to conscious recall. An occluded case is one whose memory is usually largely occluded and whose field of awareness is black or very dark. (COHA Gloss) 2. occlusion is simply using remote viewpoints and then having the remote viewpoints go blank. (5410CMlOB) 3 . loss of viewpoint of effects. When one has lost a viewpoint with which to perceive effects and upon which he depended for all perception of effect he is very occluded. (PAB 4)

OCCLUSION TYPE OF CIRCUIT, the circuit which drops curtains across certain pieces of information or may mask “I” from contact with the standard bank or the reactive bank. This circuit might be worded, “For your own good I have to protect you from yourself.” (SOS, Bk. 2, p. 206)

OCTSER, October series. (HCOB 29 Sept 66) OFF, officer. (BPL 5 Nov 72RA)

OFF TECH, off technical. (HCOB 23 Aug 65) OFF THE TRACK, whenever you find a patient, returned, outside himself and seeing himself, that patient is off the track. (DMSMH, p. 320)

OJ, overt justification (a process name). (BTB 20 Aug 71R II)

OKAY TO AUDIT, an okay to audit means two things. There are two okays to a u d i t . One is o k a y t o a u d i t as an intern. This means one has done the check-sheet to the satisfaction of the intern supervisor. One can now audit for intern qualifications. The other is okay to audit as an HGC auditor. This means one has done the intern check-sheet, has audited flublessly to many program completions and is passed by the HGC C/S. (HCO PL 24 Aug 71)

OLD AGE, is nothing more than a confirmed low tone on the physiological side. (5203CM05B)

OLD CUFFS, 1. [refers to a habit of writing on his cuffs of Ole Doc Methuselah’s, a hero of an LRH science fiction book.] “Ole Doc sat in the sunlight and puffed his pipe and occasionally made intricate calculations on his gold cuff—his filing case was full of torn cuffs containing solutions which would have rocked even his brothers of the Universal Medical Society.” (L. Ron Hubbard, Ole Doc Methuselah, p. 75) 2 . they’re just suppositions and so forth, theories. (5410CMlOC) OLD TIMER, see FOUNDING SCIENTOLOGIST.

OLFACTORY, 1. with olfactory perception we perceive the minute particles of matter which register as smell. (SOS, p. 59) 2 . the sense of smell is evidently activated by small particles escaping from the object, which is thus sensed traveling through space and meeting the nerves. (SA, p. 87)

OLOGY, means study. (5407C19)

O-METER, in 1955 a planned new and better E-meter than had ever been built before, under the trademarked name of physiogalvanometer, or O-meter. (PAB 52)

ONE-FIVE (1.5 on the tone scale), 1. numerical equivalent on the Chart of Human Evaluation for the person who is in overt hostility. Anger is his standard state. He is capable of taking destructive action and is characteristically trying to stop things. (PXL Gloss) 2 . total obstacle. The definition of 1 .5 would be just that, total obstacle. (2ACC-30A, 5312CM21) 3 . a case of chronic anger or one which enturbulates easily into anger. (SOS, p. 51)

ONENESS, people have had the idea that there was a main body of theta and everybody became “one” when you got to the top of the tone scale. Fortunately that isn’t true. But you go down tone scale and everybody becomes one. And the oneness is mest. There’s no individuality whatsoever in mest. (PDC 6)

ONE-SHOT CLEAR, 1. there was a great deal of discussion in the ’50s concerning the fact that there ought to be some chemical which one would load up into a syringe and the word one-shot clear became current. But it is actually a sarcastic word. I can absolutely assure you completely and 100 per cent that there is no magic single button. (Cl. VIII No. 13) 2 . the command “Be three feet back of your head.” This is the one-shot clear. (5410CMlOB) 3. by one-shot clear we meant one phrase or one action given once or repeated, which would bring into being the Clear as described in Dianetics: The Modern Science of Mental Health, Chapter II. (Dn 55 .! p. 134)


ONE WITH THE UNIVERSE, one of the control mechanisms which has been used on thetans is that when they rise in potential they are led to believe themselves o n e w i t h t h e u n i v e r s e . This is distinctly untrue. Thetans are individuals. They do not as they rise up the scale, merge with other individualities. (Scn 8-8008, p. 25)

ONLY ONE, 1. if an individual can discover that he is only playing on the first dynamic and that he belongs to no other team it is certain that this individual will lose for he has before him seven remaining dynamics. And the first dynamic is seldom capable of besting by itself all the remaining dynamics. In Scn we call this condition the “only one.” Here is self-determinism in the guise of selfish- determinism and here is an individual who will most certainly be overwhelmed. To enjoy life one must be some part of life. (PAB 84) 2 . just above zero on the tone scale. An individual must have no effect on self and total effect on everything and everybody else. Now that is the category of o n l y o n e . This person can never communicate on a team basis. (5707C25) 3 . you can look at any person who is being dishonest or who is upsetting his environment or who is getting people into trouble all the time. You could look at that person and the actuality is he has no reality on his fellow man. He doesn’t know they live. That’s a very low-toned thing we call “only one.” And when they get into that then they are able to do most anything. All criminals are in this bracket. (ASMC 2, 5506C03) 4 . the preclear has gotten into a state, ordinarily, where he is the only one who can grant beingness, but he has so long restrained other people from granting life to things that he himself will no longer grant any life to things. (COHA, p. 56)

OPENING PROCEDURE BY DUPLICATION, gets the preclear to examine, communicate with and own two dissimilar objects. These objects are placed several feet apart and at a level so that the preclear can pick them up without bending over, but so he has to walk between them. (COHA, p. 48)

OPENING PROCEDURE OF 8-C, 1. the basic theory of Opening Procedure of 8-C is to make and break communication with the physical universe. Once an individual discovers that he can make and break communication with walls and objects, it will be discovered that he can let go of various pieces of his engram bank. (PAB 47) 2 . consists of having the preclear move his body around the room under the auditor’s direction until (a) he finds he is in actual communication with many spots on the surface of things in the room, (b) until he can select spots in the room and know that he is selecting them and can communicate with them, and (c) select spots and move to them, decide when to touch them and when to let go. (COHA, p. 44)

OPERATING, able to act and handle things. (Aud 10 UK)

OPERATING THETAN, 1. a thetan exterior who can have but doesn’t have to have a body in order to control or operate thought, life, matter, energy, space and time. ( SH Spec 82, 6611C29) 2 . willing and knowing cause over life, thought, matter, energy, space and time. And that would of course be mind and that would of course be universe. ( SH Spec 80, 6609C08) 3 . an individual who could operate totally independently of his body whether he had one or didn’t have one. He’s now himself, he’s not dependent on the universe around him. (SH Spec 66, 6509C09) 4 . a Clear who has been refamiliarized with his capabilities. (HCOB 12 Jul 65) 5 . a being at cause over matter, energy, space, time, form and life. Operating comes from “able to o p e r a t e without dependency on things” and thetan is the Greek letter theta (ø), which the Greeks used to represent “thought” or perhaps “spirit” to which an “n” is added to make a new noun in the modern style used to create words in engineering. (BCR, p. 10) 6. by operating thetan we mean theta clear plus ability to operate functionally against or with mest and other life forms. (SCP, p. 3) 7 . this state of being is attained by drills and familiarity after the state of Clear has been obtained. A real OT has no reactive bank, is cause over matter, energy, space, time and thought and is completely free. (HCOB 12 Jul 65)

OPERATION CLEAR, it is CLEAR you, then CLEAR your environment, then CLEAR the country. (Cert, Vol. 5, No. 2,1958)

OPERATIVE SHOCK, a s h o c k to the person sufficient to blow up a few facsimiles.

OPPOSE LIST, a list in Routine 2-12 where if the reliable item found turned on pain, you list “Who or what would . . . (reliable item) oppose?” If it turned on sensation, list “Who or what would oppose . . . (the reliable item)?” (HCOB 23 Nov 62)

OPPOSITE POSTULATE, an individual who has made a postulate on a subject experiences “failure” when he has to make an opposite postulate later. The opposite postulate has the effect of a negative postulate. The opposite postulate is distinguished from a negative postulate because it depends upon effort which a negative postulate does not necessarily have to do. (AP&A, P- 34)

OPPOSITE VECTOR CASE, has private goals quite the reverse of getting better. (HCOB 24 Mar 60)

OPPOSITION TERMINAL, l. a designation of a type of GPM item (R6 material). (HCOB 23 Aug 65) 2 . one of a pair of reliable items of equal mass and force, the significance of which the thetan has in opposition to his own intentions. (HCOB 13 Apr 64, Scn VI Part One Glossary of Terms) 3 . an item or identity the pc has actually opposed (fought, been an enemy of) sometime in the past (or present) is called an opposition terminal. As the person identified himself as not it, he could experience from it only sensation. An opposition terminal when its mental residues (black masses) are recontacted in processing, produces only sensation, never pain. Symbol: opp-term. (HCOB 8 Nov 62)

OP PRO B Y D U P , O p e n i n g P r o c e d u r e b y D u p l i c a t i o n . (SH Spec 67, 6509C21)

OPPTERM, opposition terminal. (HCOB 8 Nov 62)

OPTIMUM PRECLEAR, would be one who had average response to noises and sights, who had accurate sonic and visio and who could imagine and know that he was imagining, in color-visio and tone-sonic. This person, understand clearly, may have aberrations which make him climb every chimney in town, drink every drop in every bar every night (or try it anyway), beat his wife, drown his children and suppose himself to be a jub-jub bird. In the psychosomatic line he may have arthritis, gallbladder trouble, dermatitis, migraine headaches and flat feet. Or he may have that much more horrible aberration—pride in being average and “adjusted.” He is still a relatively easy case to clear. (DMSMH, p. 191)

OPTIMUM RANDOMITY, 1. from the viewpoint of the individual, something which has in it the right amount of motion or unexpectedness for his tolerance. (Scn AD) 2 . the amount of unexpectedness and rapidness of motion he would be comfortable about. (Abil 36, p.6) 3 . optimum randomity is a 50/50 ratio between cause and effect or a 50 percent offensive and 50 per cent defensive potential. (PAB 30)

OPTIMUM SOLUTION, the solution which brings the greatest benefit to the greatest number of dynamics. The infinitely perfect solution would be one which brought infinite survival on all dynamics. (NOTL, p. 96) O-RATING, read and listen to the data and understanding of (HCO PL 26 Jun 72 V) See also ZERO RATE.

ORG, organization. (HCOB 23 Aug 65)

ORGANIC, internal sensations and, by new definition, emotion. (Abil 71)

ORGANICALLY INSANE, missing or seared portions of the brain bringing about insanity, mainly genetic or iatrogenic and relatively rare except in institutions. (DMSMH, p. 172)

ORGANIC PERCEPTIONS, through organic perceptions we perceive the states of our own bodies, internally. (SOS, p. 59)

ORGANIC SENSATION, that s e n s e which tells the central nervous system the state of the various organs of the body. (SA, p. 104)

ORGANISM, 1. a portion of mest which has been organized and is being controlled by theta. Organisms are alive. They are the physical manifestation of life. Theta is said, then, to be the “energy” of life. (It is not to be confused with physical energy, which is the “e” of “mest.”) (Abil 114A) 2 . a n organism is composed of theta and mest and their altered form, entheta and enmest. (SOS, Bk. 2, p. 246)

ORIENTATION, determination of location in space and time and determination of energy quantity present. This applies to past, present, future. (Scn 8-8008 Gloss)

ORIENTATION POINT, 1. that point in relation to which others have location. It is also that p o i n t from which the space containing the locations is being created. (COHA, p. 54) 2 . a point of reference from which the position of other objects is judged. People are often found still using orientation points from childhood which may be thousands of miles from their present time location. The goal of Scientology is that the thetan be his own principal orientation point, and that he have the ability to use or discard any other point of reference. (COHA Gloss)

ORIGIN, a point of no-dimension, a point has neither length, breadth, nor depth. But it is something from which you could view length, breadth and depth. (PDC 11)

ORIGINAL FORMULA, the original formula which led us into Scientology was: having found the conditions, I found it was necessary to communicate with them in order to perceive, orient myself in them and with the resulting understandings find out what my purpose really was. And so that was a formula, and it was the original formula by which we moved in. (SH Spec 57, 6504C06)

ORIGINATION, in TR-4 all originations concern the coach, his ideas, reactions or difficulties, none concern the auditor. By originate is meant a statement or remark referring to the state of the coach or fancied case. (HCOB 16 Aug 71 II) ORIGIN “I”, a viewpoint from which one can perceive anchor points. (PDC 13)

ORIGIN OF THE PRECLEAR, the preclear volunteers something all on his own. The preclear is as well as he can originate a communication. That means he can stand at cause on the communication formula. (PAB 151) O/R LISTING, one clears “overrun” as “gone on too long” or “happened too often.” Then one l i s t s smoothly, calmly to the BD F/N item which simply appears. There is no nulling. (HCOB 19 May 71) -OSIS, the condition of. (Abil 180)

O . T . , operating thetan, highest state there is. (SH Spec 66, 6509C09) O.T. ACTIVITIES, would be those programs conducted by OTs to assist Scientology. (SH Spec 84, 6612C13)

OTHER-DETERMINED REALITY, somebody has given him a facsimile and has really impressed him with it and so this looks more real to him than reality. (PRO 15, 5408CM20)

OTHER-DETERMINISM, 1. simply something else giving you orders or directions. (8ACC-6, 5410CM08) 2 . something has so thoroughly overwhelmed the pc that he is it. (HCOB 7 May 59)

OTHER SIDE OF WITHHOLDS, type of case, the person who is afraid to find out. (HCOB 15 Mar 62)

OTHER TECH, is defined as any tech which is not standard tech. (FO 800)

OT METERS (future meters), an entirely different meter for an entirely different purpose. It is for use above Clear up to OT. (EME, p. 26) OT-3A, procedure tested and released in 1960 for use on staff clearing course, in the HGC, and co-audit to produce theta clears. (HCOB 24 Jan 60) [The full rundown is contained in the HCOB 25 Jan 1960, OT-3A Procedure, HGC Allowed Processes. ]

OT TR-0, a drill to train students to be there comfortably and confront another person. The idea is to get the student able to be there comfortably in a position three feet in front of another person, to be there and not do anything else but be there. Student and coach sit facing each other with eyes closed. (HCOB 16 Aug 71 II) OUT, things which should be there and aren’t or should be done and aren’t are said to be “out,” i.e. “Enrollment books are out.” (HCOB 19 Jun 71 III)

OUT-CREATED, created against too thoroughly. (PAB 85)

OUT-ETHICS, 1. an action or situation in which an individual is involved contrary to the ideals and best interests of his group. An act or situation or relationship contrary to the ethics standards, codes or ideals of the group or other members of the group. An act of omission or commission by an individual that could or has reduced the general effectiveness of a group or its other members. An individual act of omission or commission which impedes the general well-being of a group or impedes it in achieving its goals. (HCO PL 3 May 72) 2 . a person who acts against his own moral codes and the mores of the group violates his integrity and is said to be out-ethics. (BTB 4 Dec 72)

OUTFLOW, 1. a person talking to somebody else, communicating to that person. (Dn 55 .!, p. 62) 2 . a thetan who is being interested is simply out-flowing. Interested=out-flowing. Interesting=inflowing. (PXL, p. 193)

OUT LIST, a wrong list item or a wrong list. (HCOB 20 Apr 72 II)

OUT OF, in heavily restimulated circumstances the person goes “out of.” In such a condition people want to stop things, cease to act, halt life, and failing this they try to run away. As soon as the actual by-passed charge is found and recognized as the charge by the person, up goes affinity and reality and communication and life can be lived. (HCOB 19 Aug 63)

OUT OF ARC PROCESS, this is the command which asks for out of affinity moments, out of reality moments and out of communication moments. (HCOB 12 Jul 64)

OUT OF PLUMB, a room has eight points at the baseboard and ceiling, and those will sometimes go completely askew. The eight points no longer make a box. They make a twisted space. The room looks like that to the person. (SH Spec 195A, 6209C27)

O U T O F S E S S I O N , 1 . when the preclear controls the session he is o u t o f s e s s i o n . Therefore, it is necessary for the preclear not to stop or alter the course of action of an auditor. The moment that a preclear can satisfactorily, to himself, stop the auditor, that preclear is out of session and the probability of doing him much good while he is out of session is very remote. (HCOB 4 Oct 56) 2 . there are various degrees of being out of session. The most severe of these is the person who refuses auditing. The next degree is sitting in the chair but refusing to answer questions. The next degree is sitting in the chair and being
uncooperative or even choppy. (HCOB 17 Nov 60) 3 . the definition of “in session” is (a) interested in own case, (b) willing to talk to the auditor. When either of these are violated the pc is ” o u t o f s e s s i o n ” and is receiving no benefit from processing. (HCOB 17 Nov 60) OUT OF VALENCE, 1. simply and entirely the pc was not in the body he was occupying during the incident . ( SH Spec 51, 6109C07) 2 . in the pictures you get of old incidents, you may be seeing yourself “outside of yourself,” not seeing the scene as you saw it then. This is being out of valence. (HFP, p. 92) 3 . it means the case is too heavily charged. It is very, very, very heavily charged. So the person cannot even come to the center of his bank, he can’t be in the middle of his bank and look at it. He has been living for eons watching himself so that the pictures he takes are outside. (7203C30SO) 4 . if you look into suppressive person tech you will find an SP has to be out of valence to be SP. He does not know that he is because he is himself in a non-self valence. He is “somebody else” and is denying that he himself exists, which is to say denying himself as a self. (HCOB 17 Jul 71)

OUT-POINT LIST, these are the elements of illogic and insanity. (HCOB 28 Aug 70RA)

OUT RUDIMENT, a rudiment is out if it reads and in if it does not read. (EMD, p. 37)

OUT RUDS, are easy to spot. The person with an ARC break, won’t talk or is misemotional or antagonistic. A problem produces fixated attention. Natter and 1 .1 remarks means a withhold. (HCOB 15 Oct 74)

OUT-SCANNING, you get the energy emanating from the preclear to the environment in the incident. That’s out scanning. (HCL 4, 5203CM04B)

OUT TECH, means that Scientology is not being applied or is not being correctly applied. (HCOB 13 Sept 65)

OUT THE BOTTOM, Slang. the individual drops down the tone scale so far he can go no further down. It symbolized being worse off than merely being on the bottom of the ladder. Gone downward from the bottom. (LRH Def. Notes)

OVER ACKNOWLEDGEMENT, 1. acknowledging before the pc has said all. (HCOB 13 Apr 64, Scn VI Part One Tone Arm Action) 2 . giving an unnecessary number of Goods, Thank yous, etc., which will have the same effect as under acknowledging. (BTB 29 Jun 62)

OVERAUDITING, auditing beyond a grade of release attained. (Aud 10 UK) OVERBURDEN, the incident is too charged in one place to be confronted. (HCOB 15 Jul 70)

OVERLISTED LIST, the pc is just kind of in apathy about it all and upset and sort of audited into the ground, and it’s all sort of tight and the mass is tight and the needle is tight. The auditor had a complete Ust and didn’t know when to stop. (SH Spec 255, 6304C04)

OVER-PERCEPTION, this is not necessarily imagination, but it can go to the length of seeing and hearing things which are not there at all, which happens to be a common insanity. (DMSMH, p. 189)

OVER-RESTIMULATION, 1. pc goes into more charge than he or she can itsa easily. The TA slows down. (HCOB 13 Apr 64, Scn VI Part One Tone Ar7n Action) 2 . something that is over-restimulated is not easily discharged because in some fashion or another the discharge has been prevented. It comes from getting a hold of too much and not discharging it. (SH Spec 300, 6308C28) 3 . there is a condition of over-restimulation. Its definition is, it will not discharge by ordinary means. (SH Spec 300, 6308C28)

OVERRUN, 1. a n overrun means doing something too long that has engrams connected with it which means an engram chain with too many engrams on it being restimulated by life or auditing. Hence overrun. If this overrun persisted unhandled eventually the pc would be overwhelmed and one in theory, would have a low TA. (HCOB 16 Jun 70) 2 . gone on too long or happened too often. (HCOB 3 Jun 71) 3 . means the pc came out of the bank and the pc went back into it again. (Class VIII, No. 2) 4 . continuing a process past the optimum point. (Abil 218) 5 . running past a free, floating needle on any type of process. (HCOB 2 Aug 65)

OVERRUNNING, means accumulating protests and upsets about it until it is just a mass of stops. Anyone can do anything forever unless he begins to stop it. (HCOB 2 Jun 71 I)

OVERSHOOTING, going beyond a completion or completing a completion. (HCOB 16 Aug 70)

OVERSHOT, entered the case too high. (PAB 61) OVERT ACT, 1. an overt act is not just injuring someone or something; an overt act is an act of omission or commission which does the least good for the least number of dynamics or the most harm to the greatest number of dynamics. (HCO PL 1 Nov 70 III) 2 . an intentionally committed harmful act committed in an effort to resolve a problem. (SH Spec 44, 6410C27) 3 . that thing which you do which you aren’t willing to have happen to you. (lSH ACC 10, 6009C14)

OVERT HOSTILITY, here is the occasional grouch, the complaining individual who yet makes no mistake about what he finds wrong. The “blunt, honest” type who tactlessly tears up the tenderer feelings of companions is found in this band. (SOS, p. 20)

OVERT-MOTIVATOR SEQUENCE, 1. if a fellow does an overt, he will then believe he’s got to have a motivator or that he has had a motivator. (AHMC 2, 6012C31) 2. the sequence wherein someone who has committed an overt has to claim the existence of motivators. The motivators are then likely to be used to justify committing further o v e r t acts. (PXL Gloss)

OVERT OF OMISSION, a failure to act resulting in the injury, reduction or degradation of another or others in their beingness, persons, possessions or dynamics. (HCOB 1 Nov 68 II)

OVERWHELMING, 1. as a person begins to be unwilling to overwhelm, he, of course, begins to be unwilling to win and so loses pan-determinism and sinks into self-determinism. Games are, for our auditing purposes, “contests in overwhelmings.” The primary overwhelming is to take space. (PAB 80) 2 . overwhelming does not consist of space, energy et al. It is the idea that an o v e r w h e l m i n g has occurred. The winner is convinced that he has overwhelmed the opposing player. The loser is convinced that he has been overwhelmed. (PAB 80) 3 . to push in too tight. (SH Spec 57, 6109C21)

OVERWHUMPED, Slang. over-restimulated. (SH Spec 302A, 6309C03) O/W, overt/withhold. (HCOB 23 Aug 65)

O-W BY TRANSFER, most pcs are on O-W by transfer which is to say when they kick George in the head they get a headache themselves. This makes them think they are George. (HCOB 22 Dec 60)

OWN, to own is not to label or cart away. To own is to be able to see or touch or occupy. (FOT, p. 33)

OWNERSHIP, 1. ownership is a problem of havingness. If you own something you can have it, if you don’t own it you can’t have it. (2ACC-29B, 5312CM20) 2. ownership could be said to be that area being covered and protected by the preclear. (PAB 8)

OWN VALENCE, his own concept of himself. (PAB 95)

PAB, Professional Auditors Bulletin (a series of technical booklet issues.) (BTB 20 Aug 71R II) PACK, a pack is a collection of written materials which match a check-sheet. It is variously constituted—such as loose-leaf or a cardboard folder or bulletins in a cover stapled together. A p a c k does not necessarily include a booklet or hardcover book that may be called for as part of a check-sheet. (HCOB 19 Jun 71 III)

PACKAGE, always consists of two RIs that are terminals and two RIs that are opp-terms. (HCOB 27 Jan 63)

P A I N , 1 . is composed of heat, cold, electrical, and the combined effect of sharp hurting. If one stuck a fork in his arm, he would experience p a i n . When one uses PAIN in connection with clearing one means awareness of heat, cold, electrical or hurting stemming from the reactive mind. According to experiments done at Harvard, if one were to make a grid with heated tubes going vertical and chilled tubes going horizontal and were to place a small current of electricity through the lot, the device, touched to a body, would produce the feeling of PAIN. It need not be composed of anything very hot or cold or of any high voltage to produce a very intense feeling of pain. Therefore what we call PAIN is itself, heat, cold and electrical. If a pc experiences one or more of these from his reactive mind, we say he is experiencing PAIN. Symbol: PN. (HCOB 8 Nov 62) 2 . the sharp impulse or dull impulse of heat, cold and electrical. (SH Spec 202A, 6210C23) 3 . the sensation of pain is actually a sensation of loss. It is a loss of beingness, loss of position and awareness . ( COHA, p . 210) 4 . too much motion too fast . (5203CM05B) 5 . p a i n , technically, is caused by an effort counter to the effort of the individual as a whole. (Scn Jour 5-G) 6. pain is the randomity produced by sudden or strong counter-efforts. (AP&A, p. 100) 7 . the sudden impact of theta and mest together could be considered a turbulence which creates dissonance in theta. This is registered and recorded as pain. (SOS, p. 40) 8 . theta and mest coming together too hard get into a turmoil which we call pain. (SOS, p. 5) 9. pain is a warning of non-survival or potential death. (SA, p. 27)

PAIN ASSOCIATION, the person is made to associate his “wrong ideas” with pain so that he “will not have these ideas,” or will be “prevented from doing these things.” A crude current example is to electric shock a person every time he smokes a cigarette. After several “treatments” he is supposed to associate the pain with the idea and so “give up smoking.” (HCOB 16 Jul 70)

PAINFUL EMOTION ENGRAM, 1. similar to other engrams. It is caused by the shock of sudden loss such as the death of a loved one. (DMSMN, p. 62) 2 . the death, departure or denial by an ally is a certain painful emotion engram. (DMSMN, p. 353)

PAINFUL INCIDENT, any incident which was painful; a death, an operation, a big failure, big enough to render you unconscious such as an accident. (NFP, p. 99)

PAN-DETERMINISM, 1. would mean a willingness to start, change and stop
on any and all dynamics. That is its primary definition. A further definition, also a precision definition, is: the willingness to start, change and stop two or more forces, whether or not opposed, and this could be interpreted as two or more individuals, two or more groups, two or more planets, two or more like-species, two or more universes, two or more spirits whether or not opposed. This means that one would not necessarily fight, he would not necessarily choose sides. (Dn 55!, p. 100) 2 . defined as determining the activities of two or more sides in a game simultaneously. (PAB 84) 3 . the ability to regulate the considerations of two or more identities, whether or not opposed. (COHA, p. 110) 4 . full responsibility for both sides of a game. (Scn 0-8, p. 119)

PAN-KNOWINGNESS, in his native state, a thetan knows everything without looking, or anything, but he doesn’t know any particulars of data. These are all invented. So what you would really call this would be a potentiality, or pan- knowingness. (PAB 64)

PAPER TRICK, there are cases around that have been “audited” for years who have never really done a process. This can be whipped by a Comm Process done with paper and pencil. [The comm process discussed in the reference HCOB is “From where could you communicate to a victim?”] You locate the terminal with an E-Meter and then you lay the instrument aside, give the pc a sheet of paper and a pencil, and every time he answers your auditing question, you have him or her draw the answer on the paper. As the Comm Process exceeds language, it can be easily checked. Even if the pc seems to be having some success but could succeed faster you can boost it along with the “paper trick” as this is called. (HCOB 27 Aug 59)

PARANOID, 1. a person with delusions, as of grandeur or, especially, persecution. (HCOB 11 May 65) 2 . is one on whom everything is impinged. There isn’t really any such thing as a paranoid. There’s such a thing as collapsed space. (PDC 26)

PARA-SCIENTOLOGY, 1. includes all of the uncertainties and unknown territories of life which have not been completely explored and explained. (PAB 85) 2 . that large bin which includes all greater or lesser uncertainties. Here are the questionable things, the things of which the common normal observer cannot be sure with a little study. Here are theories, here are groups of data, even groups commonly accepted as “known.” (COHA, p. 188) 3 . those things which are uncertainties, such as metaphysics, spirits, other worlds, space opera, whole track, GE line, are all being put into the bin called para-Scientology. (PAB 2)

PARTICLE, energy is subdivisible into a large motion, such as a flow, a dispersal, or a ridge, and a small motion which is itself commonly called a particle in nuclear physics. Agitation within agitation is the basic formation of particles of energy, such as electrons, protons and others. (Scn 8-80, p. 43)

PARTS OF MAN, 1. the individual man is divisible (separable) into three parts (divisions). The first of these is the spirit, called in Scn the Thetan. The second of these parts is the Mind. The third of these parts is the Body. (FOT, p. 54) 2 . thetan, thetan machinery, body and the reactive-somatic mind. (8ACC 14, 5410C20) PAST, on the time track, everything which is earlier than present time. (SOS Gloss)

PASTORAL COUNSELING, Dianetics practiced in the Church of Scientology as pastoral counseling, addresses the spirit in relation to his own body and intended to increase well-being and happiness. (BPL 24 Sept 73R I)

PAST POSTULATES, decisions or conclusions the preclear has made in the past and to which he is still subjected in the present. Past postulates are uniformly invalid since they cannot resolve present environment. (NFP Gloss)

PATHOLOGY, THREE STAGES OF, predisposition, by which is meant the factors which prepared the body for sickness, precipitation, by which is meant the factors which cause the sickness to manifest itself, and perpetuation, by which is meant the factors which cause the sickness to continue. (DMSMH, pp. 91-92)

PATIENT, preclear. (PAB 87) PATTY-CAKED, Slang. the auditor left off simply because the preclear was having difficulty doing the process. (CONA, p. 113) PC, preclear. (HCOB 23 Aug 65)

PC EXAMINER, that person in a Scn Church assigned to the duties of noting pcs’ statements, TA position and indicators after session or when pc wishes to volunteer information. (HCO PL 4 Dec 71 V)

PCRD, Primary Correction Rundown: a corrective action. Purpose: to get the person through the PRD. (HCOB 20 Jul 72 I) PC TYPE A, has few personal problems. Even when they occur he isn’t upset by them. Handles life easily. Is energetic generally and able to work efficiently at things. Takes setbacks optimistically. Feels good most of the time. (HCOB 29 Jun 64)

PC TYPE B, is deluged with personal problems. Can’t see any way out. Gets upset easily or is just in plain apathy and is never upset because things aren’t real anyway (like a boulder wouldn’t get upset). Has a hard time in life. Is generally tired and can’t work very long at anything. Takes setbacks emotionally or just collapses. Feels ill most of the time. A type B can’t be cause. (HCOB 29 Jun 64) P D H , 1 . stands for pain drug hypnosis. It is known to some psychiatrists as a means of compelling obedience. They sometimes use it on psychotics. (LRH ED 2 US and 2WW Only) 2 . p a i n d r u g h y p n o s i s — a d r u g is administered to a person, the person is put into a trance and is told things. (5203CM05D)

P E , Personal Efficiency Foundation. (HCOB 23 Aug 65) PECULIAR CASES, all peculiar cases were cases that weren’t run by standard tech. (Class VIII, No. 1)

PE FOUNDATION, a programmed drill calculated to introduce people to Scn and to bring their cases up to a high level of reality both on Scn and on life. (HCOB 29 Sept 59)


PERCEPTICS, 1. sense messages. (SOS, p. 9) 2 . specialized data from the standard memory or reactive banks which represent and reproduce the sense messages of a moment in the past. The sense messages of present time, also; (formerly the word “percepts” was used to mean the sense messages of present time, but usage has dropped this distinction). (SOS Gloss)

PERCEPTION, 1. perception is the process of recording data from the physical universe and storing it as a theta facsimile. (HFP, p. 181) 2 . channels through which one can contact the physical universe. (SA, p. 64) 3 . any means of communicating below the level of knowingness. There are more than fifty perceptions used by the physical body, the best-known of which are sight, hearing, touch, taste and smell. (CONA Gloss)

PERCEPTION POINT, there would be a viewpoint, which is a perception point, which would consist of look, and smell, and talk and hear, and all sorts of things could be thrown in under this category, viewpoint. Ordinarily we simply mean at that level of the scale, looking, but you can throw all the rest of the perceptions in at that level of the scale. (PX~, p. 257)

PERFECT COMMUNICATION, a perfect communication is one which is duplicated perfectly at the effect point whatever emanated from the cause point. (UPC 1, 5406CM05)

PERFECT DUPLICATE, 1. a perfect duplicate is an additional creation of the object, its energy, and space, in its own space, in its own time, using its own energy. This violates the condition that two objects must not occupy the same space, and causes a vanishment of the object. (Scn 0-8, p. 31) 2 . it means a copy in its own space with its own particles in its own time. It’ll disappear if you do that. (5410CM10B)

PERFECT DUPLICATION, cause and effect in the same point in space. (PXL, p. 114)

PERMANENT CERTIFICATE, in the case of an auditor, an internship or formal auditing experience is required. When actual honest evidence is presented to C&A that he has demonstrated that he can produce flubless results his certificate is validated with a gold seal and is a permanent certificate. With other courses the person must demonstrate that he can apply the materials studied by producing an actual, honest statistic in the materials studied. He presents this evidence to C&A and receives a validation gold seal on his certificate. (HCO PL 31 Aug 74 II)

PERMANENT RESTIMULATION, t h e m e c h a n i s m o f permanent re-stimulation consists of opposing forces of comparable magnitude which cause a balance which does not respond to current time and remains “timeless.” (HCOB 13 Apr 64, Scn VIPart One Tone Arrn Act~on)

PERPETUATION, by which is meant the factors which cause the sickness to continue. (DMSMH, p. 92) PERSISTENCE, the ability to exert continuance of effort toward survival goals. (Scn 0-8, p. 73)

PERSISTENT F/N, unkillable F/N. It’s persistent at least for that day. (HCOB 8 Oct 70) PERSONAL IDENTITY, the composite of all your experience plus an initial decision to be and occasional decisions not to be. You do not die as an identity or a personality or an individual. You and the mest body “separate” and the mest body gets a funeral. (HFP, p. 76)

PERSONAL INTEGRITY, is knowing what you know. What you know is what you know, and to have the courage to know and say what you have observed. And that is integrity and there is no other integrity. (B&C, p. 21)

PERSONALITY, 1. the individual, the p e r s o n a l i t y , is the awareness of awareness unit, and the awareness of awareness unit is the person. (Dn 55!, p. 1 7 ) 2 . a complex of inherited (mest, organic, theta) and environmental (aberration, education, present time environment, nutrition, etc.) factors. (SOS Gloss)

PERSONALITY ACCESSIBLE, means a person who will talk to you about his condition without being antagonistic. (NOTL, p. 34)

PERSONALITY GRAPH, a picture of a valence. On any human being, he himself is not really enough there to have a personality. (SH Spec 70, 6607C21) See also OCA GRAPH.

PERSONAL MOTION, this is awareness of change of position in space. This perception is assisted by sight, the feel of wind, changes in body weight, and by the observation of external environment. (SA, p. 106)

PERSONAL PRESENCE ALTITUDE, the individual who leads or makes an impression upon others merely by his presence, by his example and the fact of his existence, has personal presence altitude. Ghandi had this to a very high degree. (SOS Gloss)

PERSONAL ROLLER COASTER, (From HCOB 5 Dec 68). Same as roller coaster. (LRH Def. Notes)

PERSONNEL PROGRAMMER, a Personnel Programmer works with individual staff members and draws up workable personnel programmes and sees that they are fully executed. The purpose of a Personnel Programmer is to help LRH to expertly programme each staff member to a point of real success on their own post, to operate well as a member of the group and attain higher and higher levels of skill, knowledge and ability, through full use of the technology of Dn and Scn. (HCO PL 22 Jan 72 II) PGM, Program (FO 2192)

PHANTOM SLAM, always comes on and goes off and comes on and goes off and a phantom slam has this characteristic; that it never obeys the auditor. The phantom slam may turn on and louse you up on the list as to which item is rockslamming. You don’t ever get a phantom slam on an uncharged list. The list has to be “hotter than a pistol” to turn the s l a m on. Completely aside from the phantom slam this type of case will never do what you tell them. You say, “Has anything been suppressed?” and they don’t think about suppressing something, they think about something else. (SH Spec 225, 6212C13) P H C , First Phoenix Congress. (HCOB 29 Sept 66) P H D , Philadelphia Doctorate Course. (HCOB 29 Sept 66) PHI (o), mest. (NOTL, p. 142)

(PDC 7) P H S , Philadelphia Doctorate Course Supplementary Lectures. (HCOB 29 Sept 66)

PHYSICALLY ILL PC, he is in suppressed pain and each time he gets a change, he puts on full stops as it started to hurt. He won’t get the same gain again and tomorrow the same process or type of process won’t work. He stops the pain if it starts to hurt, puts a new stop on his case. Slow gain, poor result is a physically ill pc. (HCOB 12 Mar 69)

PHYSICAL PAIN, the alarm reaction to theta that the organism has been too heavily impinged upon mest. Physical pain is an abrupt and sharp warning of non- survival. (SOS, Bk. 2, p. 22) 2 . theta and mest are many times brought together in disorderly collision. This creates the phenomenon known as physical pain. (505, Bk. 2, p. 4)

PHYSICAL UNIVERSE, 1. the universe of matter, energy, space and time. It would be the universe of the planets, their rocks, rivers, and oceans, the universe of stars and galaxies, the universe of burning suns and time. In this universe we would not include theta as an integral portion, although theta obviously impinges upon it as life. (505, p. 4) 2 . the physical universe is reducible to motion of energy operating in space through time. (Scn 0-8, p. 71)

PHYSICAL WELL-BEING, absence of factors which predispose him to illness. (SOS, p. 15)

PHYSIO-ANIMAL BRAIN, the physio-animal section of the brain, contains the motor controls, the sub-brains, and the physical nervous system in general, including the physical aspect of the analytical section of the brain. The control of all voluntary and involuntary muscles is contained in this section. It commands all body fluids, blood flow, respiration, glandular secretion, cellular construction, and the activity of various parts of the body. (DTOT, p. 23)


PHYSIO-ANIMAL MIND, the physio-animal mind has specific methods of “thinking.” These are entirely reactive; animal experimentation—rats, dogs, etc.—is experimentation on and with precisely this mind and little more. It is a fully conscious m i n d . There is no period in the life of the organism from conception to death when this mind is not awake, observing, and recording perceptions. This is the mind of a dog, cat or rat and is also the basic mind of a man so far as its operating characteristics are concerned. (DTOT, p. 24)

PIANOLA CASE, 1. a case that was wide open, had sonic recall, visio recall, no pain shut-offs or anything and you just said “Go back to the earliest moment of pain or unconsciousness” and the fellow went and you say, “Go to the beginning of the engram” and he goes, and you run it out and it erases. Well, they’d begun to call this the pianola case, because it plays itself. (5009CM23B) 2 . i n a pianola case, the file clerk works with you. The somatic strip does what you tell it to do. (NOTL, p. 68) 3 . a c a s e that has easy running in all perceptions. (NOTL, p. 25)

PICTURE, facsimile. (PAB 136) See FACSIMILE.

PICTURE AND MASSES REMEDY, the anaten pc—dopes off in session—high TA. The handling of the pcs or pre-OTs that fall under the above category, even though they were well rested before session consists of: the case supervisor sends the pc or pre-OT to a Dn auditor who would list: “What pictures or masses have you touched on in life or in auditing that have been left unflat?” The Dn auditor would get the best reading item from the list, gets the somatic or pain, or sensation or unwanted emotion or attitude that goes with that picture or mass, makes sure that it reads well, and he would follow down to basic and erasure that item that read with the picture or the mass by standard R3R. The list is reassessed and is exhausted as above. (BTB 3 Oct 69R) [Note: The referenced BTB gives two additional remedies for handling the anaten pc—dopes off in session —high TA.]

PINCH TEST, for demos you can do a “pinch test” where you explain to the pc that to show him how the meter registers mental mass—you will give him a pinch as part of the demo. Then get him to think of the pinch (while he is holding the cans) showing him the meter reaction and explaining how it registers mental mass. (BTB 8 Jan 71R)

PINK SHEET, pink sheets are issued by a course supervisor as a corrective measure. A student is given a pink sheet when something earlier was missed that should have been learned. The principle of the pink sheet is that a student is responsible for all the material he has studied earlier. If he is unable to apply or use any of this material then the pink sheet is issued to remedy the situation. It gives the student a study assignment calling for restudy and checkout of the specific materials pertaining. It is a quick and precise remedy. (HCOB 19 Jun 71 III) P L , policy letter. (BPL 5 Nov 72RA)

PLATEN, a card with holes in it that is put on another paper and has in it the line plot mostly written out. (HCOB 8 Dec 64) P L A Y , 1 . somebody invented the difference between work and p l a y . P l a y was seen to be something interesting and work was seen to be something arduous and necessary. Play is almost purposeless. Work has a purpose. Play should be called work without a purpose. Activity without a purpose. (POW, p. 32) 2 . unreal or delusory motion about which you are not supposed to be serious; you are not supposed to as-is it. (SH Spec 19, 6106C23)

PLEASURE, 1. the Dn definition of pleasure is that the organism tending toward survival obtains pleasure by survival actions and the seeking of survival goals. (SOS, Bk. 2, p. 84) 2 . the perception of well being or an advance toward the ultimate goal. (DTOT, p. 20) 3 . creative and constructive effort. (DASF)

PLEASURE MOMENTS, mental image pictures containing pleasure sensations. They respond to R3R. One seldom addresses them unless the preclear is fixated on some type of “pleasure” to a point where it has become highly aberrated. (HCOB 23 Apr 69)

PLOTTING, the action of obtaining goals or items from the pc and positioning them in their correct sequence on their respective p l o t s . (HCOB 13 Apr 64, Scn VI Part One Glossary of Terms) PLS, P u b l i c L e c t u r e S e r i e s (American). (HCOB 29 Sept 66)

PLUS-POINT LIST, they are the elements of logic and sanity. (HCOB 28 Aug 70RA)

PLUS RANDOMITY, from the viewpoint of the individual, something which has in it too much motion or unexpectedness for his tolerance is plus randomity. (Abil 36) P . M . , pleasure moment. (Hubbard Chart of Human Evaluation) P N , symbol for pain or electrical. (HCOB 19 Jan 67)

POINT OF VIEW, point from which he was looking, rather than his opinions. (Dn 55!, p. 69) POINTS, the arbitrary assignment of a credit value to a part of study materials. “One page equals one point.””That drill is worth 25 points.” (HCOB 19 Jun 71 III)

POINTS SYSTEM, the system of assigning and counting up points for studies and drills that give the progress of a student and measure his speed of study. They are kept track of by the student and course administrator and added up each week as the student’s statistic. The statistic of the course is the combined study points of the class. (HCOB 19 Jun 71 III)

POLE THETA TRAP, the being is shot into the implant area put on a post wobbled around and then ran through this implant of goals, on a little monowheel pole trap which had the effigy of a body on it, the being didn’t have a body and was put on a pole trap. The pole trap has a body on it. (SH Spec 266, 6305C21)

POLITICAL DIANETICS, embraces the field of group activity and organization to establish the optimum conditions and processes of leadership and inter-group relations. (DMSMH, p. 152)

POOR CASE CONDITION OR INCOMPLETE, a staff member who is in a state of chronic repair or who is not in good physical condition or good case condition as they are defined. (HCO PL 21 Oct 73R)

POOR MEMORY, a poor memory means a curtained memory, the memory being complete. Every perception observed in a lifetime is to be found in the banks. (SOS, p. 54)

POSITIONAL ALTITUDE, deriving from an arbitrarily assigned position. Military officers and bureaucrats often depend heavily upon positional altitude. (SOS Gloss)

POSITIVE POSTULATE, it’s not only that there is no negative given attention to, but it does not assume that any negative is possible. (ESTO 6, 7203C03 SO II)

POSITIVE PROCESSING, this consists of addressing the theta on the case and bringing it to view. (SOS, Bk. 2, p. 281) POST INJURY, after injury. (HCOB 12 Mar 69)

POSTOPERATIVE, after operation. (HCOB 12 Mar 69)

POSTPARTUM PSYCHOSIS, mental upset due to delivery of a baby. (HCOB 15 Jan 70)

POST PURPOSE CLEARING, an essential part of hatting; to get the person’s post purpose cleared by an auditor. This requires an auditor, an E-meter, and is done in session. Staff member must bring hat folder to the PPC session so if there is any confusion on purposes in it they can be cleared up from the hat folder. (HCOB 4 Aug 71R) Abbr. PPC. P O S T U L A T E , n . 1 . a self-created truth would be simply the consideration generated by self. Well, we just borrow the word which is in seldom use in the English language, we call that postulate. And we mean by postulate, self- created truth. He p o s t s something. He puts something up and that’s what a postulate is. (HPC A6-4, 5608C–) 2. a postulate is, of course, that thing which is a directed desire or order, or inhibition, or enforcement, on the part of the individual in the form of an idea. (2ACC 23A, 5312CM14) 3 . that self- determined thought which starts, stops or changes past, present or future efforts. (APIA, p. 33) 4 . is actually a prediction. (5112CM30B)—v. 1 . in Scn the word postulate means to cause a thinkingness or consideration. It is a specially applied word and is defined as causative thinkingness. (FOT, p. 71) 2 . t o conclude, decide or resolve a problem or to set a pattern for the future or to nullify a pattern of the past. (HFP, p. 155) 3 . to generate or “thunk” a concept. A postulate infers conditions and actions rather than just plain thinks. It has a dynamic connotation. (SH Spec 84, 6612C13)

P O S T U L A T E P R O C E S S I N G , 1 . that processing which addresses the postulates, evaluations and conclusions of the preclear at the level of self- determined thought, yet postulate processing has some value when addressed to stimulus-response ideas. Postulate processing is the primary and highest method of processing a thetan. With creative processing, it constitutes Scn 8- 8008 . (Scn 8-8008, p. 37) 2. the process or any process which permits an individual to change his postulates. (PDC 37)

POSTULATED REALITY, a second type of reality is postulated reality, which is brought into being by creative or destructive imagination. (SOS, p. 97)

POTENTIAL TROUBLE SOURCE, 1. a person or preclear who “roller- coasters,” i.e., gets better, then worse. This occurs only when his connection to a suppressive person or group is unhandled and he must, in order to make his gains from Scn permanent, receive processing intended to handle such. (ISE, p. 48) 2 . somebody who is connected with an SP who is invalidating him, his beingness, his processing, his life. (SH Spec 63, 6506C08) 3 . means the case is going to go up and fall down. He’s a trouble source because he’s going to get upset. He’s a trouble source because he’s going to make trouble. And he’s trouble for the auditor and he’s trouble for us and he’s trouble for himself. (SH Spec 68, 6510C14) 4 . it means someone connected to a person or group opposed to Scn. It is a technical thing. It results in illness and roller-coaster and is the cause of illness and roller-coaster. (HCOB 17 Apr 72) Abbr. PTS.

POTENTIAL VALUE, 1. the potential value of the individual is derived from his ability to think and his power in the following fashion, where PV equals potential value, A equals ability to think and D equals power. PV= ADX . (DASF) 2 . equal to intelligence multiplied by the dynamics of the individual to a certain power. This might be restated as meaning that the potential value of any man was equal to some numerical factor, denoting his structural intelligence and capability, multiplied by his free theta to a power. This was written in the handbook in an effort to encourage some psychologist to discover what the power of the dynamic might be and conclude some means of establishing potential value by psychometry. (SOS, p. 126) 3 . the potential value of an individual or a group may be expressed by the equation PV= IDX where I is intelligence and D is dynamic. The worth of an individual is computed in terms of the alignment, on any dynamic, of his potential value with optimum survival along that dynamic. (DMSMH, p. 40)

POWER, 1. the amount of work which can be accomplished in a unit of time, or the amount of force which can be applied in a unit of time. P o w e r has the connotation of being potential. Power does not necessarily mean application of it . ( SH Spec 83, 6612C06) 2 . the ability to maintain a position in space. (PAB 131)

POWER AUDITOR, a graduate of the Saint Hill Special Briefing Course who has also served the Saint Hill Internship. Only they are qualified to do the power processes of Grade V. They are Class VII auditors. (ISE, p. 45)

PR (PUBLIC RELATIONS), 1. Slang. to cover up, putting up a lot of false reports to serve as a smoke screen for idleness or bad actions. (HCO PL 4 Apr 72) 2. public relations cheery falsehoods. (HCOB 22 Sept 71) 3 . a technique of communicating ideas. (HCO PL 13 Aug 70 I)

PRACTICAL, the drills which permit the student to associate and coordinate theory with the actual items and objects to which the theory applies. Practical is application of what one knows to what one is being taught to understand, handle or control. (HCOB 19 Jun 71 III)

PRACTICAL INSTRUCTOR, assists the practical supervisor, handles all practical administration and acts as auditing supervisor. (HCO PL 18 Dec 64)

PRACTICAL SUPERVISOR, handles all practical instruction, acts as auditing supervisor. (HCO PL 18 Dec 64)

PR AUDITING REPORT, meaning promoting instead of auditing. A false auditing report. (HCOB 16 Aug 70)

PRD, Primary Rundown. (HCOB 20 Jul 72 I)

PRECIPITATION, the factors which cause the sickness to manifest itself. (DMSMH, p. 92)

PRECLEAR, 1. a person who, through Scn processing, is finding out more about himself and life. (PXL, p. 20) 2 . a spiritual being who is now on the road to becoming Clear, hence preclear. (HCOB 5 Apr 69) 3 . one who is discovering things about himself and who is becoming clearer. (HCO PL 21 Aug 63)

PRECLEAR ASSESSMENT SHEET, the purpose of this form is to establish auditor control over the preclear, to better acquaint the auditor with his preclear, and to provide essential information required. (BTB 24 Apr 69R)

PRECURSOR, earlier engram. (DTOT, p. 98)

PREDICTION, 1. when we speak of prediction we mean that he should be in communication with his environment as it will exist, as well as it exists. (Dn 55!, p. 62) 2 . the process of knowing the future. Living only for today is the process of not knowing the future. (FOT, p. 85)

PREDISPOSITION, 1. before the fact, the guy is disposed to get sick. (7204C07SO III) 2 . the factors which prepared the body for sickness. (DMSMH, p. 92)

PREFRONTAL LOBOTOMY, uses a scalpel or ice pick to perform an operation on the prefrontal lobes of the brain. (DMSMH, p. 151) PRE-HAVE, before one attained havingness h e r a n a “beforehavingness” process hence “pre (before) have.” When the full scale was achieved he could have. (LRH Def. Notes)

PREHAVINGNESS BUTTONS, the things that prevent people from having. (SH Spec 18, 6106C22)

PREHAVINGNESS SCALE, 1. an assessment s c a l e which takes in most possible formulas and regimens: Havingness is the make-break point of a case. Before havingness can be tested for, all heavy areas on the lower part of the scale must be flat. The most elementary use of the scale is to assess the points on the scale upwards until a fall is observed and then to run this fall out. (HCOB 28 Jan 61) 2. any scale giving degrees of doingness or not doingness. (HCOB 7 Nov 62 III)

PREMATURE ACKNOWLEDGEMENT, occurs when you “coax” a person to talk after he has begun with a nod or a low “yes” you ack, make him forget, then make him believe you haven’t got it and then make him tell you at great length. He feels bad and doesn’t cognite and may ARC break. Any habit of agreeable noises and nods can be mistaken for acknowledgment, ends cycle on the speaker, causes him to forget, feel dull, believe the listener is stupid, get cross, get exhausted explaining and ARC break. The missed withhold is inadvertent. One didn’t get a chance to say what one was going to say because one was stopped by premature acknowledgment. Result, missed W/H in the speaker, with all its consequences. (HCOB 7 Apr 65) PRENATAL ESP, another manifestation of charge and circuits. A circuit may exist which says, “I know what you’re thinking about,” and when returned to its vicinity the preclear seems to get the thoughts of mother and father by ESP. Actually these “thoughts” are composites of phrases which occur in the reactive and standard banks of the preclear. There may well be extrasensory perception, but “prenatal ESP” is false. (SOS, Bk. 2,

PRENATALS, a Dn term used to denote engrams received before birth. (BTB 12 Apr 72R) PRENATAL VISIO, there actually is a prenatal visio, but it is black. The blackness of the prenatal, when the individual is stuck in a prenatal engram, will actually blot out his v i s i o . There is no mechanism save that of the imagination which is known to produce the pictures that come about with “prenatal visio.” (SOS, p. 209)

PRE-OT, a thetan beyond the state of Clear who, through the advanced courses, is advancing to the full state of operating thetan. (PRD Gloss)

PREPARED LIST, 1. prepared by the auditor, prepared by me, prepared by somebody else. It is not given by the pc—it is made up, listed by somebody else, not the preclear. (Class VIII, No. 11) 2 . l i s t s designed to find by-passed charge and repair a faulty auditing action or life situation. (HCOB 28 May 70) 3 . is one which is issued in an HCOB and is used to correct cases. There are many of these. Notable amongst them is C/S 53 and its corrections. (HCOB 15 Oct 73)

PREPCHECK, 1. sec checking=security checking, so it couldn’t be used as a purely auditing action for the pc. So I had to have a new word. Prep for preparatory to auditing. It’s a forerunner of ruds. (LRH Def. Notes) 2. preparatory check. A process. (HCOB 23 Aug 65) 3. on a prep-check run each reading item (SF, F, LF, BD) from the assessed list of items on the prep-check buttons. Each button is run to F/N, Cog. Take up each reading button in turn until you get full EP for the subject. (BTB 10 Apr 72R)

PREPCHECK BUTTONS, the following order and number of prep-check b u t t o n s s h o u l d b e u s e d w h e r e v e r a n “ 1 8 – b u t t o n p r e p c h e c k ” is recommended. Do n o t use the older order of buttons. For all uses the 18 prep-check buttons now are: suppressed, careful of, didn’t reveal, not-ised, suggested, mistake been made, protested, anxious about, decided, withdrawn from, reached, ignored, stated, helped, altered, revealed, asserted, agreed (with). (HCOB 14 Aug 64)

PREPCHECKING, 1. a way of cleaning up a case in order to run Routine 3D Criss Cross. I developed prepchecking in order to get around an auditor’s difficulty in “varying the question” in pulling withholds. Auditors had a hard time doing this, hence prepchecking. Prep-checking became more important than a “rote procedure for sec checking.” The target of a prep-check question is a chain of withholds. The purpose of prepchecking is to set up a pc’s rudiments so they will stay in during further clearing of the bank. (HCOB 1 Mar 62) 2 . the reason this is called prepchecking and the reason it isn’t called withhold system and it isn’t called anything else but prepchecking is it’s preparatory to clearing. (SH Spec 114, 6202C21) 3 . is the system of getting each rudiment in with a crunch, so it’s more or less permanently in during the auditing in 3DXX and that’s prepchecking. (SH Spec 110, 6202C13)

PREPCLEARING, 1. preparatory to clearing. Prep-clearing for short. Abandon all further reference to security checking or sec checking. The task of the auditor in prep-clearing is to prepare a pc’s rudiments so that they can’t go out during 3D Criss Cross. We have just risen well above security checking in ease of auditing and in case gains. (HCOB 12 Feb 62) 2 . prepchecking is synonymous at the present moment. (SH Spec 114, 6202C21) PRE-RELEASE, any patient who is entered into therapy to accomplish a release from his chief difficulties, psychosomatic or aberrational. (DMSMHGloss)

PRESENT TIME, 1. the time which is now and which becomes the past almost as rapidly as it is observed. It is a term loosely applied to the environment existing in now, as in “The preclear came up to present time,” meaning the preclear became aware of the existing matter, energy, space, and time of now. The point on anyone’s time track where his physical body (if alive) may be found. “Now.” (HCOB 11 May 65) 2 . when we say that somebody should be in present time we mean he should be in communication with his environment. We mean, further, that he should be in communication with his environment as it exists, not as it existed. (Abil Mi 246) 3 . a response to the continuous rhythm of the physical universe, resulting in a hereness in nowness. (HCOB 15 May 63) 4 . the ground, sky, walls, objects, and people of the immediate environment. In other words, the anatomy of present time is the anatomy of the room or area in which you are at the moment when you view it. (PAB 35) 5 . a continuing series of instants in which, moment to moment, theta goes on changing mest. (SOS, p. 36) 6 . an ever extending moment; and a person who is free on his time track is generally in present time, moving forward through the consecutive moments of time. (SOS, p. 102) 7 . an arbitrary time, agreed upon, and is the same across a whole universe. It is the point of coincidence of three universes. (PAB 29) 8 . people go out of present time because they can’t have the mest of present time, that’s it. Present time is only the referral point that exists. In its absence all becomes bank. (HCOB 29 Sept 60) Abbr.

PT. PRESENT TIME ENVIRONMENT, the whole area covering the pc’s life and livingness over a definite period. It may be the last day, the last week, the last year, depending on the pc. (HCOB 16 Oct 63)

PRESENT TIME PROBLEM, 1. technically, a special problem that exists in the physical universe now, on which the pc has his attention fixed. (HCOB 31 Mar 60) 2 . is one that exists in present time, in a real universe. It is any set of circumstances that so engages the attention of the preclear that he feels he should be doing something about it instead of being audited. (HCOB 3 Jul 59) 3 . a present time problem is one which has its elements in the material universe in present time, which is going on now, and which would demand the preclear’s attention to such an extent that he would feel he had better be doing something about it rather than be audited. (HCOB 16 Dec 57) 4 . any worry that keeps a pc out of session, which worry must exist in present time in the real universe. (PAB 142) Abbr. PTP.

PRE-SESSION PROCESS, 1. a process that is used to get into session (a) a stranger who isn’t receiving well; (b) a person antagonistic to Scn; (c) a person who ARC breaks easily in session; (d) a person who makes few gains in auditing; (e) a person who relapses after being helped; (f) a person who makes no gains in auditing; (g) a person who, having been audited, refused further auditing; (h) any person being audited as a checkoff before session, aloud to pc or silently by auditor. (HCOB 21 Apr 60) 2 . designed as classes of processes to handle these four points: (1) help factor; (2) control factor; (3) pc communication factor; (4) interest factor. These four are vital to auditing itself and without them auditing doesn’t happen. (HCOB 21 Apr 60)

PRESSOR BEAM, 1. the pressor is a beam which can be put out by a thetan which acts as a stick and with which one can thrust oneself away or thrust things away. The pressor beam can be lengthened, and in lengthening, pushes away. Pressor beams are used to direct action. (Scn 8-8008, pp. 48-49) 2 . a pressor beam which is exerting pressure expands when it is energized. (PDC 8) PRESSOR RIDGE, that ridge formed by two or more pressor beams operating against each other in conflict. (Scn 8-8008, p. 49)

PRESSOR-TRACTOR RIDGE, a combination of pressor-tractor flows in sufficient collision as to form a solidification of energy. (Scn 8-8008, p. 49) PRESSURE, if one took a fork and pressed it against the arm, that would be pressure. A bank solidity is a form of pressure. (HCOB 19 Jan 67)

PRESSURE SOMATIC, is, in Dn, considered to be a symptom in a lock, secondary or engram, simply part of the content. (HCOB 23 Apr 69) PRETENDED DEATH CASE, the pretended death case has come to a point where he considers the environment so fraught with menace that nothing in the environment has any intent save to kill him and that death is immediate. He has insufficient energy or reason remaining even to appeal for help and, indeed, he considers that there is no person or object to which he can so appeal, and so he attempts to demonstrate to anything in the environment that it has won and that he is already dead. (SOS, p. 172)

PRETENDED KNOWINGNESS, is actually denial of knowingness. (SH Spec 35, 6108C08)

PRETENSE, a false reason or excuse. A mere show without reality. (HCO PL 3 May 72)

PREVENT, is to a large degree an anatomy of a problem. (SH Spec 29, 6107C14)

PREVENTIVE DIANETICS, a large subject, infiltrating the fields of industry and agriculture and other specialized activities of man, its basic principle is the scientific fact that engrams can be held to minimal content or prevented entirely with large gains in favor of mental health and physical well-being as well as social adjustment. (DMSMH, pp. 152-153)

PREVENTIVE SCIENTOLOGY, in this branch of processing, an individual is freed from assuming states lower than those he has already suffered from. In other words, the progress of tendencies, neuroses, habits and deteriorating activities can be halted by Scn or their occurrence can be prevented. This is done by processing the individual on standard Scn processes without particular attention to the aberration involved. (FOT, pp. 87-88)

PRICE OF FREEDOM, constant alertness, constant willingness to fight back. There is no other price. (AHMC-1, 6012C31)

PRIDE, pride is aesthetic sensitivity. (5208CM07D)

PRIMAL CAUSE, communication origin. (Dn 55!, p. 85)

PRIMARY CORRECTION RUNDOWN, 1. it consists of auditing and study correction actions. The Primary Correction Rundown takes care of people who have trouble on the Primary Rundown. (HCOB 4 Apr 72R) 2 . t h e rundown consists of ethics orientation on the first dynamic, potential trouble source handling for connections with hostile elements, drug handling, case handling, the why of not using study tech or study, the Study Correction List and handling, Method 7, a review of grammar, and then back to a Primary RD. (HCOB 30 Mar 72R) Abbr. PCRD.

PRIMARY ENGRAM, one that contains physical pain and unconsciousness. (NOTL, p. 46)

PRIMARY LOCK, the key-in of an engram takes place at some future date from the time the engram was actually received. The key-in moment contains analytical reduction from weariness or slight illness. A situation similar to the engram, which contained “unconsciousness,” came about and keyed-in the engram. This is a primary lock. (DMSMH, p. 304)

PRIMARY MID-RUDS, suppress and invalidate. Those are the primary mid- ruds. (SH Spec 229, 6301C10)

PRIMARY RUNDOWN, 1. the Primary Rundown consists of word clearing and study tech. It makes a student super-literate. (HCOB 4 Apr 72R) 2 . consists of Method 1 word clearing and Method 8 on study tapes and Student Hat. (HCOB 30 Mar 72R) Abbr. PRD. PRIMARY SCALE, a list of

NOUNS or CONDITIONS which are key items in mental reaction. When these are assessed one assessed the VERB needed to complete a command from the SECONDARY SCALE. (HCOB 23 May 61) See HCOB 23 May 61, Prehav Scale Revised for the actual scale. (LRH Def. Notes)

PRIMARY UNIVERSE, the physical universe. (Abil 24)

PRIMARY UNMOTIVATED ACT, as any energy or space condition survives only because it has been and is being altered, the primary unmotivated act would be changing the condition of energy, space and objects. (COHA, p. 159)

PRIME CAUSE, prime postulate: “to be.” (DAB, Vol. II, 1951-52, p. 229)

PRIME POSTULATE, 1. a postulate may spring from past effort or prime thought. A prime postulate is the decision to change from a state of not beingness to a state of beingness. (AP&A, p. 34) 2 . we call the prime postulate the basic purpose of the individual in Dianetics: Modern Science of Mental Health, or his goal. (SH Spec 168, 6207C10)

PRIME THOUGHT, the decision moving the original potential being from the state of not beingness to the state of beingness. Prime thought can occur at any moment during any lifetime, moving the individual from the state of not beingness to the state of beingness. A common name for this phenomenon is necessity level. (AP&A, p. 22)

PRINCIPLE OF A-R-C, the A-R-C triangle is affinity, reality, and communication. The basic principle here is that as one raises or lowers any of the three, the others are raised or lowered, and that the key entrance point to these is communication. (PXL, p. 38)

PRIOR ASSESSMENT, 1. the person looked on drugs or alcohol as a cure for unwanted feelings. One has to assess what was wrong before or prior to the cure. All it requires is a special assessment called a prior assessment. (HCOB 19 May 69, Drug and Alcohol Cases Prior Assessing) 2 . AESPs listed separately and run R3R, prior to first drug or alcohol taken. (HCOB 31 Aug 74)

PRIOR CAUSE, it is one of the “facts” of objects that space and energy must have been caused before the object could exist in the mest universe. Thus any object has prior cause. (Scn 8-8008)

PRIOR CONFUSION, 1. all sticks on the time track stick because of a prior confusion. The most stuck point on the track is a problem. The confusion occurred minutes, days, weeks before this problem. (HCOB 9 Nov 61) 2 . all somatics, circuits, problems and difficulties including ARC breaks are all preceded by a prior confusion. Therefore it is possible to eradicate somatics by sec checking the area of confusion which occurred just before the pc noticed the somatic for the first time. (HCOB 2 Nov 61)

PRIOR R E A D S , 1 . r e a d s which occur prior to the completion of the major thought. (EMD, p. 38) 2 . any non-instantaneousness before the end of the sentence. (SH Spec 148, 6205C24)

PRO, Professional Course. (HCOB 29 Sept 66) PROB, problem. (BTB 20 Aug 71R II)

PROB INT, problems intensive. (BTB 20 Aug 71R II)

PROBLEM, 1. a problem is postulate-counter-postulate, terminalcounter-terminal, force-counter-force. It’s one thing versus another thing. You’ve got two forces or two ideas which are interlocked of comparable magnitude and the thing stops right there. All right, now with these two things one stuck against the other you get a sort of a timelessness, it floats in time. (SH Spec 82, 6111C21) 2 . a problem is a postulate-counter-postulate resulting in indecision. That is the first manifestation of p r o b l e m s , and the first consequence of a p r o b l e m is indecision. (SH Spec 27, 6107C11) 3 . a multiple confusion. (SH Spec 26X, 6107C03) 4 . an intention counter-intention that worries the preclear. (HCOB 23 Feb 61) 5 . a problem is the conflict arising from two opposing intentions. A present time problem is one that exists in present time, in a real universe. (HCOB 3 Jul 59) 6 . something which is persisting, the as-is-ness of which cannot be attained easily. (PRO 16, 5408CM20)

PROBLEMS INTENSIVES, 1. can key out present time problems of long duration, chronic somatics, circuits and hidden standards. To give a problems intensive the auditor first fills in the Preclear Assessment Form on the preclear. The auditor then asks the preclear for all self-determined changes the preclear has made this life. (HCOB 9 Nov 61) 2 . each change or turning point, was preceded by a period of confusion. Find the persons present in the confusion. Assess the persons for most reaction, take the one with most reaction and run a processing check on that person to get the withholds the pc had from that person. (HCOB 17 Oct 61) [This rundown was later revised as follows.] 3 . get the self-determined changes, handle each reading change in order of largest read. Locate the prior confusion to the change by asking the pc for it. You want the time. Predate the time of the prior confusion by one month. Prepcheck “Since (date) has anything been (prep-check button)?” References are HCOB 30 July 1962, A Smooth HGC 25 Hour Intensive and HCOB 27 Sept 62, Problems Intensive Use (BTB 9 Oct 71RA III) [The above is a very brief summary only. The full series of steps can be found in the referenced HCOBs and BTB.]

PROBLEMS LONG DURATION, is spotted by no real change in characteristics or OCA or general case. (LRH Def. Notes)

PROBLEMS RELEASE, expanded Grade I release. (CG&AC 75) See GRADE I RELEASE.

PROCEDURE CCH, CCH is a very sloppy title, for Procedure CCH is really C for control, D for duplication, C for communication, Ct for control of thought=havingness; and that is the real name of it. First, we get the person under control, get him into the capability of duplicating and then we move him up into communication more or less on a person level. Now we take the mind. The mind consists of mental image pictures and if duplication is addressed to the mind we get communication. The third zone is the control of the thetan, which brings us to the control of thinkingness, Ct. (PAB 122)

PROCEDURE 30, the special auditing procedure of which Opening Procedure by Duplication (R2-17 Creation of Human Ability) is the first step. (PXL Gloss)

PROCESS, a set of questions asked by an auditor to help a person find out things about himself or life. More fully, a process is a patterned action, done by the auditor and preclear under the auditor’s direction, which is invariable and unchanging, composed of certain steps or actions calculated to release or free a thetan. There are many processes and these are aligned with the levels taught to students and with grades as applied to preclears, all of which lead the student or the preclear gradiently to higher understanding and awareness. Any single process is run only so long as it produces change and no longer. (Scn AD)

PROCESS BITING, Skmg. If the TA is moving, the process is biting and if it is not moving the process is not biting. No motion on the tone arm dial= no action in the bank . ( SH Spec 1, 6105C07)

PROCESS BY TONE ARM, theoretically when I say process by the tone arm I mean keeping the needle somewhere in the vicinity of set and that gives you your tone arm motion. (SH Spec 3, 6105Cl9)

PROCESS COMPLETION, defined as the end phenomena of the process. (HCOB 26 May 71)

PROCESS CYCLE, selecting a process to be run on the preclear, running the tone arm action into it (if necessary) and running the tone arm action out of it. (HCOB 7 Apr 64) PROCESSED, drilled in Scn with Scn exercises. (PAB 82)

PROCESSES OF SCIENTOLOGY, methods of “unhypnotizing” men to their own freer choice and better life. (CONA, p. 251)

PROCESS FLAT, see FLAT PROCESS. PROCESSING, 1. called “auditing” by which the auditor (practitioner) “listens and commands.” The auditor and the preclear (patient) are together out of doors or in a quiet place where they will not be disturbed or where they are not being subjected to interrupting influences. The purpose of the auditor is to give the preclear certain and exact commands which the preclear can follow and perform. The purpose of the auditor is to increase the ability of the preclear. The Auditor’s Code is the governing set of rules for the general activity of auditing. (PAB 87) 2 . the principle of making an individual look at his own existence, and improve his ability to confront what he is and where he is. (Aud 21 UK) 3 . a series of methods arranged on an increasingly deep scale of bringing the preclear to confront the no-confront sources of his aberrations and leading them to a simple, powerful, effective being! (HCO PL 18 Sept 67) 4 . the verbal exercising of a patient (preclear) in exact Scn p r o c e s s e s . (PAB 87) 5 . p r o c e s s i n g is not getting data out of the preclear; it is not assembling his life for him as a complete, consecutive play—it is increasing his self-determinism and his right to reason. (DAB, Vol. II, p. 70 1951-52) 6 . a procedure by which an individual recovers his self-determinism. No procedure which does not bring about increased self- determinism is processing. (Abil 114A)

PROCESSING CHECKS, you will see processing checks in literature going out, so don’t let it throw you. I’m talking about security c h e c k s . (SH Spec 91, 6112C12)

PROCESS LAG, 1. the length of time it takes the whole
circuit to clean or clear or get free and of course that length of time is how long it takes you to run out that question and we call that a process lag. If you are running Opening Procedure 8-C and you have to run it on a preclear fourteen hours before he seems to be in good shape on the thing, you have done then a process lag and you’ve cleaned up a process lag. How long did it take for this process to be effective on the preclear, fourteen hours. (5411CM05) 2 . this is the length of time it requires for the preclear to obtain a result from a process. (PAB 43) 3 . the length of time it takes to reduce all communication lag from a type of question or action in auditing. (PAB 43) 4 . another kind of communication lag is simply a processing lag. It’s the length of time that it takes the process to be effective on the preclear. (5410C M06)

PRODUCTION, an org must produce to survive. By production is meant training auditors who can audit, auditing pcs to a good result and making money, or in a total socialism obtaining adequate support in ratio to production. (HCOB 21 Nov 71 I)

PRODUCT PROGRAM, is an experimental program. It remains experimental and has not been released. (BTB 1 Nov 72)

PROFESSIONAL AUDITING, sessions given by a trained auditor who is governed by ethical codes and technical skill, who directs the pc’s attention to areas which when examined by the preclear will cause a release of sufficient charge to cause tone arm action, thus reaching the eventual state of Clear. (HCO PL 21 Aug 63)

PROFESSIONAL SCIENTOLOGIST, one who expertly uses Scn on any area or level of the society. (HCOB 10 Jun 60)

PROFESSIONAL STUDENTS, are defined as (1) those students who are holding a valid, in force and in hand Class IV or above certificate; (2) those students who are holding a valid, in force and in hand old HCA/HPA certificate or (3) those students who are fully paid up through HAA and actually on the course. At a Church of Scientology SH organization, a student to receive the professional discount would have to be either (a) on the SHSBC or (b) holding a valid, in force and in hand SHSBC Class VI certificate. A valid in force cert has a fully paid up membership. (HCO PL 6 Aug 72R)

PROFILE, an APA or OCA profile was a picture of a valence or of valences— artificial overlays. (PAB 138) PROGRAM, 1. is defined as the sequence of actions session by session to be undertaken on a case by the C/S in his directions to the auditor or auditors auditing the case. (HCOB 12 Jun 70) 2 . any series of actions designed by a C/S to bring about definite results in a pc. A program usually includes several sessions. (HCOB 23 Aug 71) 3 . the consecutive layout of what has to be done in the next many sessions. (HCOB 14 Jun 70)

PROGRAM COMPLETION, a program is complete when the end phenomena of the program is attained. (HCOB 26 May 71)

PROGRAM CYCLE, selecting an action to be performed, performing that action and completing it. (HCOB 7 Apr 64)

PROGRAMMING, 1. the overall planning for a person of the courses, auditing and study he should follow for the next extended time period. (HCOB 19 Jun 71 III) 2 . is simply how we are going to take the charge off the case. (SH Spec 271, 6305C30)

PROGRAM SHEET, a sheet which outlines the sequence of actions, session by session, to be run on the pc to bring about a definite result. (BTB 30 Nov 72R)

PROGRESS PROGRAM, 1 . when you are doing something to bring a case back up to where the case ought to be on his grade chart. (7204C07 SO I) 2 . a Scn auditing program to clean up upsets in life. (HCOB 6 Sept 71) 3 . a program to eradicate case mishandling by current life or auditing errors. (Aud 58 UK) 4 . what is called a “Repair Program” on the first issue of C/S Series HCOB is renamed a progress program. (HCOB 25 Jun 70 II)

PROLONGATION, continuously gone on with. (7204C07 SO III) PROMPTERS, THE, in Listen Style Auditing if the auditor believes the pc has stopped because of embarrassment or some similar reason, the auditor has the prompters, the only things he is allowed to use. Prompter (a) “Have you found something you think would make me think less of you?” Prompter (b) “Is there something you thought of that you think I wouldn’t understand?” Prompter (c) “Have you said something you felt I didn’t understand? If so, tell me again.” Prompter (d) “Have you found something you haven’t understood? If so, tell me about it.” (HCOB 10 Dec 64)

PROPITIATION, 1. the strange manifestation of the individual attempting to buy off the imagined danger by propitiation. Cases which are far down on the tone scale will, when they reach 1 .0, quite commonly offer the auditor presents and attempt to do things for him. (SOS, p. 57) 2 . propitiation is an apathy effort to hold away a dangerous “source” of pain. To nullify the possible anger of a person perhaps long since dead but living now again in a partner, is the hope of propitiation. (DMSMH, p. 309) 3 . this conciliation is an effort to feed or sacrifice to an all destructive force. (DMSMH, p. 307)

PRO-SURVIVAL ENGRAM, 1. an engram which seems to be in favor of survival. (DMSMH, p. 62) 2 . pro-survival engrams containing the ally computation can be described as those which contain personnel who defended the patient’s existence in moments when the patient conceived that his existence was under attack. (DMSMH, p. 244) 3 . any engram which, by content only, not by any real aids to the individual containing it, pretended to assist survival. (DMSMH, p. 264)

PROTEST READ, an item, possibly already run, is seen to read. The pc frowns. He is protesting and the meter is registering protest, not the item. A protest almost never blows down the TA. (HCOB 29 Apr 69)

PROVISIONAL, meaning “not permanent.” (HCO PL 9 May 65) PROVISIONAL CERTIFICATE, the student graduate is given a provisional certificate. This looks like any other certificate but is not gold-sealed and has provisional plainly on it. Provisional certificates expire after one year if not validated. (HCO PL 31 Aug 74 II) See also PERMANENT CERTIFICATE.

PR PR, power processes. (Class VIII No. 17) PSEA, pain, sensation, emotion, attitude. (7203C30S0)

PSEUDO-ALLY, 1. a person about whom the preclear has a similar computation as an ally not based directly on an engram recording but on a similarity to an ally. (SOS, Bk. 2, p. 112) 2 . a person whom the reactive mind has confused with the real ally. (DMSMH, p. 251)

PSEUDO-CENTERS, the personalities of people whom you’ve tried to help and have failed. These are “valences.” (HFP, p. 96)

PSYCHE, 1. a thetan, the spirit, the being himself. (SH Spec 31, 6407C29) 2 . soul. (5506C03) 3 . a Greek word meaning spirit. (PAB 82)

PSYCHIATRY, the primary difference between Scn and psychiatry is that psychiatry is authoritarian and tells the person what’s wrong with him, often introducing a new lie. Scn finds out what’s wrong with the person from the person. (SH Spec 294, 6308C14)

PSYCHO, Slang. the bank has total effect upon him and he has no effect of any kind on the bank. A psycho is actually an engram bank in full dramatization. (SH Spec 4, 6105C26)

PSYCHO-, combining form: refers to mind. (DMSMH, p. 92)

PSYCHO-ANALYSIS, is a system of mental therapy developed by Sigmund Freud in Austria in 1894 and which depends upon the following practices for its effects: the patient is made to discourse (free associate) on and recall his childhood for years while the practitioner effects a transfer of the patient’s personality to his own and searches for hidden sexual incidents believed by Freud to be the only cause of aberration; the practitioner reads sexual significance into all discourse and evaluates it for the patient along sexual lines; the entirety of the cases of psycho-analysis have never been tabulated and little or no testing has been done to establish the validity of the system. (PAB 92)

PSYCHOLOGY, 1. defined this way: psyche-ology; spirit, study of. (AHMC 1, 6012C31) 2 . that body of practice devoted to the creation of an effect on living forms. It is not a science since it is not an organized body of knowledge. In actual use it is a dramatization of Axiom 10, wholly reactive. In this wise the word can be used by Scientologists, and this definition can be used legally to prove Scn isn’t psychology. (HCOB 22 Jul 59) 3 . the study of the spirit (or mind) that came into the peculiar position of being a study of the spirit which denied the spirit. (PAB 82) 4 . a study of the brain and nervous system and its reaction patterns. (ASMC 3, 5506C03) 5 . an anglicized word, not today true to its original meaning. P s y c h o l o g y is composed from psyche and ology, and psyche is mind or soul, but leading p s y c h o l o g i c a l texts begin very, very carefully by saying that today the word does not refer to the mind or to the soul. To quote one, it “has to be studied by its own history,” since it no longer refers to the soul, or even to the mind. So we don’t know what psycholoa refers to today. (PXL, p. 2) 6 . the study of the human brain and stimulus-response mechanism and its code word was “man to be happy, must adjust to his environment.” In other words—man, to be happy must be a total effect.

PSYCHOPOLITICS, the technical name for brainwashing. (Op Bull No. 9) PSYCHOSIS, 1. the root word “psych” refers only to a being or soul and the “osis” could loosely be defined as “the condition of.” (Cert, Vol. 13, No. 2) 2 . p s y c h o s i s could be technically called an inability to be; so it naturally is an inability to communicate because beingness is a problem in anchor points and that’s a problem in communication . ( Spr Lect 9, 5303CM27) 3 . an inability to cope with the routine problems of the first and second dynamics . ( Spr Lect 9, 5303CM27) 4. psychosis is a complete inability to assign time and space. (Scn 8-80, p. 44) 5 . any major form of mental affliction or disease. (SOS, p. 25) 6 . a conflict of commands which seriously reduce the individual’s ability to solve his problems in his environment to a point where he cannot adjust some vital phase of his environmental needs. (DTOT, p. 58) 7 . the guy is just generally the effect of everything. (SH Spec 70, 6607C21) 8 . is simply an evil purpose. It means a definite obsessive desire to destroy. (ESTO No. 3, 7203C02 SO I)

PSYCHOSOMATIC, 1. psycho of course refers to mind and somatic refers to body; the term psychosomatic means the mind making the body ill or illnesses which have been created physically within the body by derangement of the mind. (DMSMH, p. 92) 2 . a chronic pain which amounts to a physical illness with which the pc has been afflicted for a very long time. They turn on and they don’t turn off. (SH Spec 92, 6112C13)

PSYCHOSOMATICALLY ILL CASE, one in which the entheta side of the engram is suppressed and the somatic side of the engram is in re-stimulation. (SOS, p. 82)

PSYCHOSOMATIC ILLNESS, 1. it is the pain contained in a past experience or the physical malfunction of a past experience. The facsimile of that experience gets into present time and stays with the person until a shock drops it out of sight again or until it is processed out. A shock or necessity however permits it to come back. (NSOL, pp. 139-140) 2 . this we call physical illness caused by the mind. In brief, such illness is caused by perceptions received in the reactive mind during moments of pain and unconsciousness. (PAB 85) 3 . physiological insanity. It is being expressed by the body rather than by the mind. (8ACC 6, 5410CM08) 4 . i l l n e s s e s which have a mental origin but which are nevertheless organic. (DMSMH, p. 91)

PSYCHOTHERAPY, 1. is an effort to remove neurosis and psychosis from man by immediate address to the individual and the group. (LPLS 1, 5510C08) 2 . a series of processes by which the past is addressed to remedy the present or by which physical matter, such as the human brain, is rearranged (as in a prefrontal lobotomy) in order to inhibit odious conduct in present time. (Scn Jour 14-G)

PSYCHOTIC, 1. does not know what is going on in his environment and does not know what is going on inside himself. It is all unknown and therefore unobservational—unobserved. He doesn’t know what’s happening inside himself and he doesn’t know what’s happening with himself and he doesn’t know what’s happening where he is and he doesn’t know what’s happening in front of him or behind him at any given time of the day or night. This is the one common denominator of all p s y c h o s i s . (SH Spec 41, 6108C17) 2 . that person who cannot receive orders of any kind, who sits unmoving or goes berserk at the thought of doing anything told him by another determinism. (HCOB 25 Aug 60 II) 3 . the complete subject of one or more unknown causes to which he is the unwilling effect and any effort on his part to be cause is interfered with by the things to which he is the effect. (PAB 144) 4 . when a person has lost his ability to impose time and space upon his facsimiles and his memories he’s psychotic, he’s gone. (5209CM04B) 5 . an avoidance of both the future and present time and a shift into the past. (PAB 17) 6 . the case which cannot observe but thinks obsessively is known to us as the psychotic. (PAB 8) 7 . that person according to Dn definition whose theta has become entheta completely, and who is either entirely locked up in an engram or chain of engrams and does nothing but dramatize them or who is under the command of a control circuit and does some computation, if limited and unreasonable. (SOS, Bk. 2, p. 190) 8 . an individual who cannot handle himself or his environment well enough to survive and who must be cared for to protect others from him or to protect him from himself. (SOS, p. 25) 9 . a person who is physically or mentally harmful to those about him out of proportion to the amount of use he is to them. (SOS, p. 26) 1 0 . computation only of past situations. (Scn 0-8, p. 89)

PSYCHOTIC BREAK, 1. when a person drops below the 2 .0 level he has so much entheta compared to his theta that a sudden shock may simply enturbulate the remaining theta and send him into a psychotic break. When all the theta is enturbulated, its reaction is to kick apart theta and mest, in other words, cause death and remove the organism from the path of other organisms. (SOS, p. 28) 2 . some person disorients a human being one time too many and it’s just that, disorientation. The person tells him he’s here when he’s there and fouls him up one way or the other and pulls the space out, or tells him he can’t stay there anymore, or tells him that he can’t have that space, or tells him that he can’t have that matter which also contains space. He loses something in other words. But what he loses most importantly is space. So he loses this space, and one day he feels with several facsimiles a clank, and he doesn’t feel good at all. (PDC 25) 3 . a neurotic person has not given up the strain of keeping some of his attention in present time, and will not do so until forced by chronic, constant re-stimulation to do so. When this happens the neurotic suddenly becomes p s y c h o t i c . A psychotic break has occurred. (DAB, Vol. I, No. 6, 1950) P.T., present time. (SH Spec 72, 6607C28)

PT ENVIRONMENT LIST, 1. an Expanded Dianetics Rundown. The auditor finds out what is charged in the pc’s present time environment, then gets PSEAs connected with that and runs standard R3R on the items. (7203C30S0) 2 . life and livingness environment, the workaday world of the pc is a source of re-stimulation. (HCOB 1 Oct 63) PTP, present time problem. (BCR, p. 21) PTP, basically the inability to confront the dual-terminal nature of the universe. It iS an inability to span attention and denotes that the pc who is having lots of PTPs has his attention very fixed on something. (HCOB 31 Mar 60)

PTP OF LONGDURATION , 1 . b y long duration we mean this lifetime absolute maximum limit. As soon as we exceed this lifetime we have case. (SH Spec 42, 6108C18) 2 . the attention is fixed on something in present time all right but it’s also been fixed on this thing for a long time and is usually subjective. (SH Spec 42, 6108C18)

PTP OF SHORT DURATION, fixed attention on the immediate environment. (SH Spec 42, 6108C18) P T S , 1 . means potential trouble source which itself means a person connected to a suppressive person. All sick persons are PTS. All pcs who roller-coaster (regularly lose gains) are PTS. Suppressive persons are themselves PTS to themselves. (HCOB 20 Apr 72) 2 . is the manifestation of a postulate- counter-postulate. (SH Spec 68, 6510C14) 3 . environmental menace that keeps something continuously keyed in. This can be a constant recurring somatic, a continual, recurring pressure or a mass. The menace in the environment is not imaginary in such extreme cases. (HCOB 5 Dec 68)

PTS RD CORRECTION LIST, this correction list is assessed and handled after a PTS Rundown has been done on the pc. It also serves as a check list of expected actions with the Rundown. It is always assessed M5 . EP is pc no longer upset, each reading item taken to EP. (BTB 11 Aug 72RA)

PTS TYPE A, a person intimately connected with persons (such as marital or familial ties) of known antagonism to mental or spiritual treatment or Scn. (HCO PL 5 Apr 72 I) PTS TYPE ONE, the SP on the case is right in present time, actively suppressing the person. Type one is normally handled by an ethics officer in the course of a hearing. (HCOB 24 Nov 65)

PTS TYPE TWO, t y p e t w o is harder to handle than type one, for the apparent suppressive person in present time is only a restimulator for the actual suppressive. The pc who isn’t sure, won’t disconnect, or still roller-coasters, or who doesn’t brighten up, can’t name any SP at all is a type two. (HCOB 24 Nov 65)

PTS TYPE THREE, the type three PTS is mostly in institutions or would be. On this case the type two’s apparent SP is spread all over the world and is often more than all the people there are—for the person sometimes has ghosts about him or demons and they are just more apparent SPs but imaginary as beings as well. (HCOB 24 Nov 65)

PURE RESEARCH, study without thought of possible application. (HCOB 30 Aug 65)

PURPOSE, the survival route chosen by an individual, a species, or a unit of matter or energy in the accomplishment of its goal. (NOTE: the purpose is specific and may be closely defined being a subdivision of one of the sub-dynamics. It has been tentatively established by investigation that an individual human being has established his purpose for life at the age of two years and that the actual purpose is not derived in any degree from engrams but is only warped by them.) (DTOT Gloss)

PV=ADX, see POTENTIAL VALUE. P V , potential value. (DMSMN, p. 40)

PV=IDX, see POTENTIAL VALUE. qQ, 1. Q, came from quod in Q.E.D. or “therefore” in geometry. “It follows.” (LRH Def. Notes) 2 . a mathematical designation. It can be defined this way: it is the level from which we are now viewing which is a common denominator to all experience which we can now view. The highest level from which we’re operating. (PDC 6) Q AND A, 1. means “Question and Answer.” When the term Q and A is used it means one did not get an answer to his question. It also means not getting compliance with an order but accepting something else. Example: Auditor, “Do birds fly?” PC, “I don’t like birds.” Auditor, “What don’t you like about birds?” Flunk. It’s a Q and A. The right reply would be an answer to the question asked and the right action would be to get the original question answered. (HCOB 5 Dec 73) 2 . the origin of the term comes from “changing when the pc changes.” A later definition was “Questioning the pc’s Answer.” The basic answer to a question is, obviously, a question if one follows the duplication
of the comm formula completely. Q and A is a failure to complete a cycle of action on a preclear. An auditor who starts a process, just gets it going, gets a new idea because of pc cognition, takes up the cognition and abandons the original process is Q and Aing. (HCOB 7 Apr 64) Q AND A’D, did what the preclear did. Any time the preclear changed the auditor changed. (PAB 151) QEO, t h e Qualifications Establishment Officer (QEO). Establishes and maintains the Qual Division. (HCO PL 7 Mar 72) Qs, THE, there is a series, numbering about five above the level of logic and above the level of axiom. I have been calling these things the Qs, just the letter “Q,” the mathematical symbol. We call them the Qs to differentiate them from other things. Actually Q can be defined this way: it is the level from which we are now viewing, which is the common denominator to all experience which we can now view. This is the level from which we’re viewing all experience and which acts as a common denominator to all this experience and the Q is the highest level from which we are operating. ( PDC 6)
