HANDBOOK FOR PRECLEARS By L. Ron Hubbard
By L. Ron Hubbard
PUBLISHER'S NOTE: 1951
This volume, Handbook for Preclears, is a popularized application of certain
discoveries contained in a new organization of epistemology which is an apparently successful
effort to align epistemology into a complete and workable science.
Epistemology is the philosophic term of “knowledge.” The identification of the basic
laws of knowledge and the discovery of some two hundred new phenomena concerning
thought open new portals for the investigator in any science, since all sciences are basically
dependent upon epistemology or knowledge itself. Sciences resolve and become workable in
the degree that knowledge itself, as a subject is resolved.
Man’s advances into the phenomena of the physical universe have been accomplished
by the isolation of new ways to think. Man’s progress is measured not by phenomena con-
verted into understood data but by the organization of new methods of discovering phenomena.
Mathematics, until this new science was organized and proofs of it well established, was
chiefly a method of thinking about things. The amount of phenomena discovered by
mathematics is evidenced everywhere in the civilized world and culminated in atomic fission.
Whatever the future of this new science in the field of epistemology may portend, it has
produced evidence that it may be a forceful new tool in the hands of the biologist, the
anthropologist, the political scientist, and, in short, most branches of science. It forms a bridge
amongst these sciences and calls them back from their highly specialized aspects into new units
of knowledge and will probably make easier the work of those scientists operating in those
Almost incidentally, this new science resolves many of the problems of the human mind
and human body which have been resistive. The human mind, as a computer and storage bin of
knowledge receives considerable attention in this new science. But it should not be thought that
this new science is a therapy although it poses one. It is rather a new codified understanding of
such things as interpersonal relations and constructive action. A few of the many phenomena
newly discovered by this science resolve, however, the problems of mental and psychosomatic
disorder in a percentage of cases not previously attained.
This small self- help volume is offered to the intelligent layman for his use and to
qualified practitioners in the field of the human mind for a quick understanding of the potentiali-
ties contained in the new science. Tests so far conducted demonstrate that this volume is
capable of producing complete and lasting results in 88 per cent of the cases to which it is
applied as compared to the temporary results now being obtained by mental practitioners in 22
per cent of their cases.

HOW TO USE THIS BOOK
IMPORTANT NOTE: In studying Scientology be very, very certain you never go past
a word you do not fully understand.
The only reason a person gives up a study or becomes confused or unable to learn is
that he or she has gone past a word or phrase that was not understood. If the material becomes
confusing or you can’t seem to grasp it, there will be a word just earlier that you have not
understood. Don’t go any further, but go back to BEFORE you got into trouble, find the
misunderstood word and get it defined.
For unfamiliar words in this book there is a Glossary beginning on page 73 to assist
This volume of self processing is designed for use in any of four ways:
1. As a workbook to be used wholly by the auditor on the pre- clear; or
2. As a homework book to be given the pre- clear for use between sessions; or
3. As a process done by the pre- clear himself with only occasional auditor help; or
4. As a processing manual used wholly by the pre- clear without an auditor.
The last use is possible, particularly when the pre- clear knows considerable about this
science from other sources. But it is possible, by reading this book alone, and with
considerable stamina, to carry straight on through.
If this book is given to you by an auditor, he expects to be consulted concerning any
difficult points and he expects to run out your service facsimile when the time comes by effort
The intention of this book is to decrease your reaction time, improve your efficiency
and well being, to extend your life. This book is not intended for the people who would usually
seek help by reason of severe aberration, neurosis or insanity.
The optimum individual to which this book would be addressed for total self use would
be a person capable of considerable action such as a member of the armed services, a jet pilot,
an artist, a musician desiring to speed his playing time and increase his ability. The address of
this volume is to the person who, though normal enough would like to excel physically and
mentally. An engineer, for instance, using this volume, could increase his ability to calculate
and perform many times over.
DON’T CONFUSE THIS SCIENCE WITH PSYCHOTHERAPY, PSYCHOSIS OR
NEUROSIS. JUST BECAUSE IT HANDLES THESE EASILY FOR THE FIRST
TIME IN HISTORY IS NO REASON IT IS DEVOTED TO THE LAME, THE HALT
AND THE ABERRATED. THIS SCIENCE HAS AS ONE OF ITS BRANCHES THE
IMPROVEMENT OF HUMAN ABILITY ABOVE WHAT IT HAS BEEN. THIS
BOOK WAS WRITTEN TO IMPROVE THE ABILITY OF THE ABLE.
Anyone using this volume as written can increase his skills, rehabilitate his goals and
improve himself considerably above his fellows. We need people like that if we are going to
have a better world.
Use this book as written. Don’t try to combine it with old time mumbo- jumbo.
Gasoline and alcohol, this book and psychotherapy mix similarly. Use this book as written and
no harm can come to you unless you are a case that badly needs an auditor. Good luck in your
voyage to YOU.
ON THE STATE OF MAN
Man started his journey to present time some countless eons thence. Through blood and
slaughter, earthquake and tidal wave, through muck and parching sand, through misery and
strivings, grief and happiness he has progressed, generation by generation into the master of
the world and the lord of all kingdoms.
What is the ideal state of this animal Man? What are his goals ? What are his limitations
? What is there about him that is good and what is bad ?
In the course of his adventures, Man made one very important discovery— and it has
worried him ever since. He found that he had a mind. He found that he could think. Finally he
understood that his mind was his best weapon. And he found that privation and injury or
perhaps demons could deprive him of the full we of that weapon— his mind.
Through ages of philosophers, shamans and priests, he has attempted to resolve this
primary worry and thus resolve a primary problem. Man wants to know what there is wrong
with his mind, if anything, and he wants to know what might be the ideal state of his mind, if
such a state exists.
He has wandered into countless strange by- paths in a quest for answers to these
problems. He has seated himself on mountain tops and in caves for whole lifetimes just to
ponder the riddle of himself. He has gone to war, he has starved, he has worked and reviled
and written just to solve these two mysteries.
And now, as these words are written, his terribly perplexing mind has given birth to an
idea and his hands have given form to a weapon which may resolve Man forever by destroying
all civilization. Thus he MUST solve the two principal mysteries of his mind.
Can the nature of Man be changed before the works of Man vanish forever under the
thud of Man’s most powerful product, the atom bomb?
Can the nature of Man be changed at all?
Indeed there is nothing more plastic than Man’s ability to think and believe. At one time
or another in one part of the world or another Man has accepted or believed things wilder than
anything contained in philosophic books. His capacity for change is almost unlimited. It is no
idle postulate, then, that Man’s nature, across the whole world, might change entirely in a span
of a few years. One has but to study his history to find such shifts of viewpoint and alterations
of character. The inertia of populaces is a myth. For instance, the coming of St. Paul to Rome,
almost two thousand years ago, changed the nature of all Roman slaves with a firelike
swiftness. The appearance of a monk in England at the beginning of the millennia just ending
altered the insularity of that island in a few months and sent hordes thundering off to the
Crusades filled with a piety and zeal which, before his arrival, were markedly absent. And in
the last quarter of a century the idea of collectivism has flooded out from a desperate band of
revolutionaries to change the customs and methods of living of nearly a majority of the
population of the world.
If Man can alter in such numbers, the alteration of an individual would seem to be
relatively simple. And so it is. With new knowledge and with many of his past and present
problems suddenly resolved, an individual in a few weeks can present a face to his fellows
which has markedly changed.
Man is accustomed to change. The severity of his aberration is normally due to a feeling
that he must protest against change. For his environment, all down through his evolutionary
life, through any lifetime, has changed almost day by day.
Man is successful. That is evident because he is here today after eons of trial and error,
good and bad planning. And he is successful because he can change.
The conquest of his environment had been his own engrossing purpose. Each time he
has failed to conquer and control his environs, he has made wide changes in form and methods
and has again returned into his kingship.
Man does NOT adapt to an environment He adapts the environment to himself. And in
that lies his success. When he fails to adapt the environment, when he lags in his complete
control of that environment, he has altered himself or his ideas until he could again change the
Amongst the many things Man has done, in his worries about his mind and his state of
being, in his effort to control others, is the adoption of slave philosophies. Each person who
invents or uses such a philosophy more or less tends to be, himself, exempt from the slavery
thus imposed and to hold, by the invention, the force of others nullified. This is a trick of very
limited workability for it leads eventually into the entrapment of the user himself. It is a
demonstrable law, not an opinion, that he who would enslave his fellows becomes himself
enslaved. A “therapy” which teaches that Man should adapt himself to his environment rather
than adapt the environment to him is such a slave philosophy and is not workable only because
it is quite the reverse from truth.
Each Man of the species seeks one way or another to rise superior to all else. In that is
his salvation, and, in terms of his societies, his downfall.
Attempts at enslavement arise primarily from fear. Fear comes about with the loss of
confidence in one’s ability to make his way. Thus is posed a world where self- confidence is
sought by robbing others of theirs. This cannot succeed in a complex society.
Man’s problem today is not new. It is only more urgent of solution. What is wrong, if
anything, with his mind ? What is his ideal state?
AN IDEAL STATE OF BEING
Before one can determine what is wrong with a state of being, one should have some
idea what an ideal state of being might be. In other words, before one can repair, for instance, a
radio, one must have some knowledge of what the radio is supposed to do and how well it
could play in a good state of repair.
What, it should have been asked a few millennia ago, is an ideal state of being for Man?
In what state of mind does he best prosper? What is a well man? What is a happy man? What
are the goals of Man? In what state of mind and body does Man live longest and fare best?
What does Man want to do? What is he trying to do? What is he?
Before one could presume to advance libido theories and pre- frontal lobotomies and
magic healing crystals, one should have had some idea of the goal of his efforts.
The engineer in repairing a bridge, has to have some idea of what a bridge is supposed
to do, what loads it is supposed to carry, how strong it has to be and what might be expected to
wreck it again. This is simple reasoning. The engineer does not look at this bridge he is
supposed to repair, sigh, say the problem is too complicated, bicker with several other
“authorities” on bridges, put some dynamite in the wrong place and blow it up and then wonder
why there isn’t any bridge left and begin to explain to passers- by that he was called too late,
that was all, that bridges aren’t much good anyway.
Yet one fears this has been the method of address to the problem of the human mind
To begin a rehabilitation of a human mind and body, one should know something about
their optimum state. That would be the beginning of the answer as to how the mind and body
could be rehabilitated. Further, it would be the beginning of an answer as to what environment
and conditions best favor the human body and the human mind. After that, one could devise
means of achieving an optimum condition.
In this new science there are over two hundred axioms which, one to the next, form a
logical structure concerning the mind and body, which structure is demonstrated to be workable
by the discovery of many new phenomena. This structure also predicts where phenomena
might be found— and when one looks to see if the prediction was true, finds that it is.
Accomplishments which people are calling miracles come about because of the logic and
phenomena of these axioms.
The goal of Man here on this earth is apparently “SURVIVAL.” And by survival is
meant everything necessary to survival including honor and morals and idealism and other
things which make life bearable. A Man survives as long as he can in one lifetime at the highest
level he can attain in activity and happiness. When he can no longer attain to some hope of this
ideal, he succumbs. And although one is chary of exciting incredulity, the fact is so easily
demonstrated in so many ways with such machine- like scientific consistency, it should be
known that Man apparently dies in body only and gets born to live another day. The value of
death is not small since without death Man would still be an algae in the sea, without death Man
would be forced to live in a body which no longer fitted the environment. Your auditor can
show you such an incident as an earlier death unless you are very occluded. Death has lost its
sting in this new science and is seen to be rather practical after all.
Physically, on the evolution chain, Man is attempting a greater and greater control of his
environment. The environment does not control a healthy Man. He controls the environment.
The surroundings of a sick Man, a neurotic or insane Man have a tendency to control him. One
sees this clearly as one advances, by this new science, into happier states of mind. One’s health
and ability rises directly as one asserts greater and surer control over his surroundings.
Conversely, one asserts better and better control of his surroundings as he becomes healthier
Thus there is a second goal. Man is evidently surviving to attain a higher and stronger
control of the physical universe. The physical universe is composed of matter, energy, space
and time. The coined word for the physical universe in this new science is “MEST.” That is
easy to remember because it is composed of the first letter in each of the four words, “Matter,”
“Energy,” “Space” and “Time.”
Of course Man may have other goals outside of the physical universe, but we note that
he is most concerned here on earth with a conquest of MEST. Naturally he is concerned about
his fellows and living organisms in general for he is in a sort of brotherhood with all life.
Life in general is engaged upon this conquest and Man is the highest form of Life on
earth. Without this cooperative effort of all life, a conquest of the physical universe or even
survival on a barest necessity basis would be impossible. Man is sufficiently complex as a
mechanism that he must live upon lower orders of life which only in their turn can take sunlight
and chemicals and evolve complex foods such as proteins.
Now one hopes that his reader is not engaging upon that trick common to many
readers— people often search and recall only items which validate their old ideas. Pick up a
book on philosophy which has been read by a reader who underscores with a pencil and one
will find that the most utter banalities have been noticed; only things which AGREED with the
old ideas of the reader were noted. One often wonders why such a fellow reads at all. The data
in this new science aren’t isolated opinions but a structural whole and with that whole one can
accomplish an occasional miracle and can almost always effect a marked improvement in an
individual. This has never been done before with any consistency, and so one hopes that these
data are being studied a little for themselves, not for how well they may agree with old ideas.
For they don’t agree with old ideas— and old ideas produced unhappiness, starvation, quick
death, wars, insane asylums and much other unwanted bric- a- brac. This is not just a plea for
understanding. If you want to get better than you ever could have been before, let’s try these on
for size and wear them until we clearly see their workability. If, after a thorough trial, you find
they do not work, then you have every right to discount them. One can say this to you without
any fear that you’ll discover otherwise— too many miracles have been happening in this new
The list of axioms in the back of this book will give you definitions for pain, pleasure,
anxiety and other such things in case you are curious. Here we are only treating the ideal state
of being in the framework you will need to pursue the exercises in this volume.
The first item in the ideal state is I AM. Shakespeare was quite correct with his
question, “To be or not to be?” When a Man is trying to make a decision, that decision breaks
down into a matter of choosing one of two courses: to be or not to be. The highest level of the
desirable state is I AM. No doubts of the advisability of being, no qualms about the future. The
lowest level on a survival course would be I AM NOT. In between we have the doubts and
writhing and indecision’s of the weary, the angry, the frightened. When a Man has made up his
mind as to a course he is only then comfortable. So long as he hangs in a maybe on any
decision he is uncomfortable. In any course there are just two decisions possible, to assume a
state of beingness or to assume a state of not- beingness.
Included in these pages is a tone scale which is fronted with its own descriptive data.
The ideal state of being is to be found across the top of that scale. The states of death or not-
beingness are found across the bottom of the scale.
And here we have the matter of gradient scales. Successes are little bits of living.
Failures are little bits of death. Like the battle that was lost all for the loss of a horseshoe nail, a
small failure can begin a series of failures which end in actual death. Not that death is very
important, besides being painful, but that one tends, then, to give a very heavy weight to
The ideal state of being could be said to be wholly successful in all things. This is
opposed by being so unsuccessful that one is dead.
The next point in the ideal state of being is I KNOW, opposed by I KNOW NOT.
Doubts, worries, grinding efforts at study, all these are simply gradients between I KNOW and
I KNOW NOT. What Man does not quiver a trifle when confronted with the Unknown?
The next point in an ideal is SERENE. This drops away and, at the bottom rung,
having gone downwards through Exhilaration, Enthusiasm, Cheerfulness, Antagonism,
Anger, Fear, Grief and Apathy is DEAD.
TRUST is the ideal point on the scale of TRUST DISTRUST. The most distrustful one
can become is, again, dead.
The ideal point of longevity would be ALWAYS in a perfect body. The bottom of that
scale would again be dead.
FULL RESPONSIBILITY would be in an ideal, opposed by NO RESPONSIBILITY
as an undesirable state.
And finally, but not least, there is CAUSE and EFFECT. The subject of CAUSE and
EFFECT is so important that it will be mentioned several times in the exercises themselves.
One’s ideal state is to be the CAUSE. The least desirable state would be EFFECT. The ultimate
in being EFFECT is death.
Thus we have a brief statement of what an ideal state might be. Only a few of the points
have been given but they will serve.
Ideally, one would be fully aware of being and would be. That is I AM. One would be
entirely SUCCESSFUL. One would KNOW. One would be SERENE. One would TRUST.
One would be in perfect HEALTH physically. One could assume FULL RESPONSIBILITY.
And one would be CAUSE without being unwilling to be CAUSE.
Of course, it would be not entirely desirable to attain these ultimates since one would
then lack for action. But attaining them as nearly as possible would be a desirable condition.
The odd part of it is, when one drops on any one of these things he drops on all the
others, so interactive are these portions of life.
This volume and its exercises and auditing seek to assist the individual upwards toward
this state of being which one could call ideal. How closely the individual may attain such a state
depends largely upon his own willingness to work at the matter rather than the validity of the
An ideal state of being, it goes without remark, would not include illnesses and inability
to control oneself or his environment. Control of oneself and one’s environment depend upon
his attainment toward the ideal state of being.
THE GOALS OF MAN
The goal of life in the finite universe may be easily and generally defined as an effort to
SURVIVE as long as possible and attain the most desirable state possible in that survival and,
in accomplishing this, to conquer the physical universe.
The cycle of survival is Conception, Growth, Attainment, Decay, Death, Conception,
Growth, Attainment, Decay, Death, over and over again. This is the major cycle.
There is an inner cycle in a lifetime which has to do with emotion or action. This is
Action, Attempt, Success, Attempt, Failure. Happiness, down to Failure is the emotional cycle.
But these are only part cycles. Just as every death begins new life, so does every failure
eventually challenge forth new attempt until death itself is reached. Actually both failure and
death alike are transient. They are educational building blocks on a much longer road.
Occasionally however, an individual becomes so overwhelmed that even successive attempts at
There is undoubtedly a much, much higher goal which prompts this effort to survive
and to conquer. There is probably reason above that level. In this new science we are interested
in HOW life is surviving, not WHY. Perhaps we know much of WHY right now. Perhaps we
will know all of it someday. At the moment it is enough to know HOW life is surviving.
What is embraced in the survival and actions of one Man ? We see clearly that animal
and vegetable efforts are necessary for Man’s survival. We can see that living is teamwork on
the part of all Life. How much of this teamwork is included in the activities of one individual?
We have what we call DYNAMICS. Dynamics, in Life, resemble somewhat effort in
physics. A dynamic is the urge to survive along a certain course. A dynamic is the persistence
in living. It is the effort to live.
Very low on the tone- scale, in the psychotic or neurotic band, individuals think they
survive for themselves alone. This, of course, would not be possible. As one rises up the tone
scale into better states of being, he expands his sphere of interest and action. But no matter
what he thinks in a low tone state, he is still surviving on the many dynamics, even if in a
There are eight dynamics. These embrace all the goals of survival an individual has.
They embrace all the things for which he survives.
None of these dynamics is more or less important than another. And, oddly enough,
when one is blunted or shortened, so blunt or shorten all the rest. When one offends against
one he automatically offends against all the others. These dynamics are very easy to
The FIRST dynamic is SELF. This is the effort to survive as an individual, to be an
individual. It includes one’s own body and one’s own mind. It is the effort to attain the highest
level of survival for the longest possible time for self.
The SECOND dynamic is SEX. This dynamic has two sections, 2s and 2c. The first
section is sex itself, the sexual act, anything relating to the physical action of sex. The second
section is the urge for survival through children, the product of sex. This dynamic also includes
a portion of family since the family as a unit affects the rearing of children.
The THIRD dynamic is GROUP. This is the effort to survive through a group such as a
community, a state,. a nation, a social lodge, friends, companies, or, in short any group. One
has a definite interest in the survival of a group.
The FOURTH dynamic is MANKIND. This is the effort to survive as a species. It is
the interest in the species as such.
The FIFTH dynamic is LIFE FORMS. This is the effort to survive for any and every
form of life. It is the interest in life as such.
The SIXTH dynamic is MEST. This is the effort to survive as the physical universe and
is the interest in the survival of the physical universe.
The SEVENTH dynamic is LIFE SOURCE. This, in this new science, is separate from
the physical universe, and is the source of life itself Thus there is an effort for the survival of
The EIGHTH dynamic is SUPREME BEING. This is written with the figure eight
turned on its side, meaning infinity oo. It is the postulated ultimate Creator of All and the effort
to survive for the Supreme Being.
When one has a problem which embraces many of the subjects in these dynamics, the
optimum solution of that problem lies in benefiting the largest possible number of dynamics.
Solutions which injure one dynamic for the benefit of another dynamic result in eventual chaos.
However, optimum solutions are almost possible to attain and human thinking seeks at its
highest level only to bring the greatest order and the least chaos. At low levels on the tone scale
an individual will stress one or two dynamics at the expense of the rest and so lives a very
disorderly existence and is productive of much chaos for those around him.
The soldier, flinging away his life in battle, is operating on the third dynamic (his
company, his nation) at the expense of his first dynamic, the fourth and all the rest. The
religionist may live on the eighth, seventh, fifth, and fourth at the expense of the first and sixth.
The “selfish” person may be living only on the first dynamic, a very chaotic effort.
There is nothing particularly wrong with bad emphasis on these dynamics until such
emphasis begins to endanger them broadly as in the case of a Hitler or a Ghengis Khan or the
use of atomic fission for destruction. Then all Man begins to turn on the destroyers.
The goal of an individual is to be, as much as possible, CAUSE or partner of CAUSE
on all these dynamics at once without becoming EFFECT or partner of EFFECT on any of
them. He cannot do this completely. But the degree of his success depends upon how closely
he can approximate CAUSE and how little he can be an EFFECT on each.
The whole of SURVIVAL is a dynamic, the only dynamic. But SURVIVE breaks
down into these eight.
Philosophies in the past have laid emphasis on one or another of these dynamics to the
exclusion of others and so such philosophies had but limited workability. Psychotherapies have
stressed this or that dynamic independent of the others and so did not achieve very great
results. Freud, for instance, laid very heavy emphasis on the second dynamic, sex. There is
some reason to give this a lion’s share in therapy but only because of the peculiarities of
CAUSE and EFFECT and the sexual aberrations of the general culture, not because 2s is more
important as an urge or drive than any of the others.
Not one of these dynamics will “drive one mad” when one fails more than another
dynamic. But it is quite true that failure or impedance on any one of these dynamics causes
impedance on all the rest. Fear on one becomes fear on all. Offense on one is offense on all.
Success on one is success on all. Defense on one becomes defense on all.
The proofs of the existence of these dynamics are contained in the workability of the
processes which develop from them. It happens that when one thinks of an individual as
running wholly on the first dynamic and tries to make a workable therapy on that supposition,
the individual does not lose his psychosomatic ills and he does not improve. When one tries to
treat the second dynamic exclusively as a therapy, the individual does not improve. When one
uses all these dynamics in resolving his problems, one obtains marked and startling results.
Perhaps the authoritarian will argue that just because a thing works is no reason one should use
it. Authoritarians do not achieve any results beyond their own satisfaction— which is not reason
enough for the student or technician who wishes to get things done.
The goals of Man, then, stem from the single goal of survival through a conquest of the
material universe. The success of his survival is measured in terms of the broad survival of all.
One man, working hard to save the first dynamic, might short- sightedly destroy all the others.
Where then would be the first dynamic?
THE HUMAN MIND
It is common to think of the human mind as something which just happened in the last
generation or so. The mind itself is actually as old as the organism. And according to earlier
guesses and proofs established by this new science, the organism, the body, is rather old. It
goes back to the first moment of Life’s appearance on Earth.
First there was a physical universe which happened, we know not how. And then, with
the cooling planets there appeared in the seas a speck of living matter. That speck became
eventually the complicated but still microscopic monocell. And then, as the eons passed, it
became vegetable matter. And then it became jellyfish. And then it became a mollusk and made
its transition into crustacea. And then as a land animal this particular track of Life which became
Man evolved into more and more complex forms, the tarsus, the sloth, the anthropoid, and
finally Man. There were many intermediate steps.
A very materialistic Man, seeing only the material universe, becomes confused and
vague about all this. He tries to say that living organisms are simply so much clay, wholly a
part of the material universe. He tries to say that after all it is only the “unending stream of
protoplasm,” generation to generation by sex that is important. The very unthinking Man is
likely to make many mistakes not only about the human mind but the human body.
We discover now that the science of life, like physics, is a study of static’s and motion.
We find that Life itself, the living part of Life, has no comparable entity in the physical
universe. It isn’t just another energy or just an accident. Life is a static which yet has the power
of controlling, animating, mobilizing, organizing and destroying matter, energy and space, and
possibly even Time.
Life is a CAUSE which acts upon the physical universe as an EFFECT. There is
overwhelming evidence to support this now. In the physical universe there is no true static.
Every apparent static has been discovered to contain motion. But the static of Life is evidently a
true static. The basic text of axioms of this new science demonstrates this conclusively.
Life began with pure CAUSE evidently. With the first photon it engaged in handling
motion. And by handling motion ever afterwards accumulated the experience and effort
contained in a body. Life is a static, the physical universe is motion. The effect upon motion of
CAUSE produced the combination which we see as the unity of a live organism. Thought is
not motion in space and time. Thought is a static containing an image of motion.
Thus one can say that with its first impingement upon motion, the first thought about
the physical universe began. This static, without volume, wave length, space or time yet
records motion and its effects in space and time.
This is, of course, analogy. But it is a peculiar analogy in that it sweepingly resolves
the problems of mind and physical structure.
A mind, then, is not a brain. A brain and the nervous system are simply conduits for
physical universe vibrations. The brain and nerve trunks are much like a switchboard system.
And there is a point in the system where the vibrations change into records.
An organism is motivated by continuing, timeless, spaceless, motionless CAUSE. This
cause mirrors or takes impressions of motion. These impressions we call “memories” or more
A facsimile, as you know, is a simple word meaning a picture of a thing, a copy of a
thing, not the thing itself. Thus, to save confusion and keep this point before us in this new
science, we say that the perceptions of the body are “stored” as facsimiles.
Sights, sounds, tastes, and all the other perceptions of the body store as facsimiles of
the moment the impression was received. The actual energy of the impression is not stored. It
is not stored if only because there is insufficient molecular structure in the body to store these
energies as such. Physical universe energy is evidently too gross for such storage. Further,
although the cells perish, the memories go on, existing, evidently, forever.
A facsimile of yesterday’s hurt toe can be brought back today with the full force of the
impact. Everything which occurs around the body, whether it is asleep or awake, is recorded as
a facsimile and is stored.
There are facsimiles of anything and everything the body has ever perceived— seen,
heard, felt, smelled, tasted, experienced— from the first moment of existence. There are
pleasure facsimiles and bored facsimiles, facsimiles of sudden death and quick success,
facsimiles of quiet decay and gradual struggle.
Memory usually means recalling data of recent times; thus we use the word facsimile,
for while it is the whole of which memory is a part, the word memory does not embrace all that
has been discovered.
One should have a very good idea of what a facsimile is. It is a recording of the motions
and situations of the physical universe plus the conclusions of the mind based on earlier
One sees a dog chase a cat. Long after dog and cat are gone one can recall that a dog
chased a cat. While the action was taking place one saw the scene, one heard the sounds, one
might even smell the dog or cat. As one watched, his own heart was beating, the saline content
of his blood was at such and such a point, the weight of one’s body and the position of one’s
joints, the feel of one’s clothing, the touch of the air upon the skin, all these things were
recorded in full as well. The total of all this would be a unit facsimile.
Now one could simply recall the fact that one had seen a dog chase a cat. That would be
remembering. Or one could concentrate on the matter and, if he was in good mental condition,
could again see the dog and the cat, could hear them, could feel the air on his skin, the position
of his joints, the weight of his clothing. He could partially or wholly regain the experience.
That is to say he could partially or wholly bring to his consciousness the “memory,” the unit
facsimile of a dog chasing a cat.
One does not have to be drugged or hypnotized or have faith in order to do this. People
do variations of this recall without any knowledge of this science and suppose that “everybody
does it.” The person with a good memory is only a person who can regain his facsimiles easily.
A little child in school learns, today, by repetition. It isn’t necessary. If he gets good grades it
is usually because he simply brings back “to mind,” which is to say, to his awareness, the
facsimile of the page of text on which he is being examined.
As one goes through Life he records twenty- four hours a day, asleep and awake, in
pain, under anesthetic, happy or sad. These facsimiles are usually recorded with all perceptics,
which is to say, with every sense channel. In the person who has a missing sense channel such
as deafness, that portion of the facsimile is missing.
A full facsimile is a sort of three- dimensional color picture with sound and smell and all
other perceptions plus the conclusions or speculations of the individual.
It was once, many years ago, noticed by a student of the mind that children had this
faculty of seeing and hearing in memory what they had actually seen and heard. And it was
noted that the ability did not last. No further study was made of the matter and indeed, so
obscure were these studies that I did not know about them during the early stages of my own
We know a great deal about these facsimiles now— why they are not easily recovered
by most people when they grow up, how they change, how the imagination can begin to re-
manufacture them as in hallucination or dreaming.
Briefly, a person is as aberrated as he is unable to handle his facsimiles. He is as sane
as he can handle his facsimiles. He is as ill as he is unable to handle his facsimiles. He is as
well as he can handle them.
That portion of this new science which is devoted to the rehabilitation of the mind and
body deals with the phenomena of handling these facsimiles.
A person ought to be able to pick up and inspect and lay aside at will any facsimile he
has. It is not a goal of this new science to restore full recall perception, it is the goal to re-
habilitate the ability of a person to handle his facsimiles.
When a person CANNOT handle his facsimiles, he can pull them into present time and
discover himself unable to get rid of them again.
What is psychosomatic illness ? Demonstrably, 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 by this new science. A shock or necessity, however, permits it to come
Grief, sorrow, worry, anxiety and any other emotional condition is simply one or more
of these facsimiles. A circumstance of death, let us say, causes one to grieve. Then one has a
facsimile containing grief. Something causes the individual to bring that facsimile into present
time. He is unaware of it, is not inspecting it, but it acts against him nevertheless. Thus he is
grieving in present time and does not know why. The reason is the old facsimile. The proof
that it is the reason lies in processing. The instant the facsimile is discharged of its painful
emotion, the individual recovers. This is processing in one of its phases.
The human mind is only a phase of the continuing mind. The first spark of life which
began animating matter upon Earth began recording facsimiles. And it recorded from there on
out. It is interesting that the entire file is available to any mind. In previous investigations I
occasionally found facsimiles, which were not hallucination or imagination, which seemed to
go back much earlier than the present life to the pre- clear. Having by then the tool of effort
processing, it was possible to “turn on” a facsimile with all perceptics at will and so it was
possible to examine the earliest periods possible. The genetic blueprint was thus discovered and
I was startled to have laid bare, accessible to any future investigator, the facsimiles of the
evolutionary line. Many auditors have since accomplished the same results and thus the
biologist and anthropologist come into possession of a mine of fascinating data.
There are those who know nothing of the mind and yet who get amply paid for it who
will talk wisely about illusion and delusion. There happen to be exact and precise laws to
delusion. An imaginary incident follows certain patterns. An actual incident is entirely
unmistakable. There is a standard behavior in a facsimile of an actual experience: It behaves in a
certain way; the individual gets the efforts and perceptions with clarity and the content of the
incident expands and remains fairly constant on several recounting An imaginary incident
contracts in content ordinarily and the individual seeks to keep up his interest then by
embroidering it. Further, it has no constant efforts in it. Those who cannot take time to
establish the actuality of facsimiles before becoming wise about “delusion” are themselves
possibly quite delusory people.
The human mind, as the present mind of mind, differs not at all from the most
elementary of minds, that of the monocell, except in the complexity of brain appendage. The
human being is using facsimiles to evaluate experience and form conclusions and future plans
on how to survive in the best possible manner or how to die and start over again.
The human mind is capable of very complex combinations of facsimiles. Further, it can
originate facsimiles on the basis of old facsimiles. Nothing goes wrong with the mind except its
abilities to handle facsimiles. Occasionally a mind becomes incapable of using a facsimile as
past experience and begins to use it in present time continually as an apology for failure. Then
we have aberration and psychosomatic illness. A memory of pain contains pain and can become
present time pain. A memory of emotion contains emotion and can become present time
THE CONTROL CENTER
Every mind may be considered to have a control center. This could be called the
“awareness of awareness unit” of the mind, or it could be called simply “I.”
The control center is CAUSE. It directs, through emotional relay systems, the actions
of the body and the environment. It is not a physical thing. Here is a diagram of the control
center, “I,” in relation to the emotions and the body and environment.
The total function of “I” is the estimation of effort. It thinks and plans and resolves the
problems or future effort.
When “I” has estimated a needful effort and puts it into action, its impulses impinge
against the glandular system switchboard. The glandular system is a relay unit. It turns the
emotional impulse into action.
The motor switchboard is a complex set of physical circuits and these go to various
parts of the body and channels of perception in order to coordinate physical action at the
direction of the glandular system.
On a return circuit, the environment or the body, through the nerve channels of
perception and the channels in the body itself, an impulse from the environment or the body
goes into the switchboard and is directly recorded by “I” facsimile. The emotional system, in a
mind in good condition, is bypassed on an incoming impulse unless “I” directs it expressly into
the glandular system.
The physical body is a carbon- oxygen motor. It has been built out of the eons of
experience, the summaries and conclusions of “I.” Its internal motions and actions can be
placed by “I” in the category of “automatic response.” Thus the heart beat and circulatory
system are automatic in action. Thus many other motions of the body are automatic. But, as can
be demonstrated, any of these motions can be altered by “I.”
The glandular system is quite complex as such, but its function is simple. It is the
translation medium, evidently, for thought. The system is partially physical and partially
Thought is definitely comparable to nothing in the universe of matter, energy, space or
time, having no wave length, weight, mass or speed and being, therefore, a zero which is an
infinity or, in short, a true static. Thought, thinking and life itself are of the same order of
being. Demonstrably they have no wave length, therefore contain neither time nor space.
Thought only appears to have time because in it is recorded physical universe time. There is
obviously an “action” in thought but, as obviously, it is not action in this universe. (To see the
proofs of this character of thought, see the axiomatic text.)
As the operating mechanism between thought and action, EMOTION should be well
Emotion exists to monitor motion. Thought itself seems to have an emotional impulse
which is free of physical universe waves. This is studied in various ways, but it is only
important to us in the resolution of the problems of the human mind.
Various emotions produce various actions. Anger, for instance, is the catalyst for
attack. Fear is the signal to withdraw. Grief is the signal to be quiet and initiate nothing. Apathy
is the signal to be dead or to fain death so that a marauder will go away. Various glandular
compounds are injected into the system to produce these results. Fear and grief, for instance,
have an added compound to make the flesh taste bad— for Man is but recently a food animal.
There is an entire scale of emotions to produce certain motions And there is a herd
reaction, as witnessed in mass hysteria, whereby emotion acts upon others mechanism
developed in the control of hunting packs whereby the entire pack could feel afraid and run or
feel angry and attack without any other command. This shows up additionally in any modern
leadership. The leader is that one who emotionally affects others most strongly toward positive
In interpersonal relations, emotion plays an enormous role. In this new science we have
what is called COUNTER EMOTION. Incidents quite often will not reduce until the pre- clear is
made to feel the emotion of others toward him. But quite aside from this manifestation as an
ethereal something, there is the real mechanism of sympathy. One person shows grief in order
to get support from the other. The other shows sympathy and gives the support. Man is so
interdependent and the physical universe so occasionally rigorous that all interpersonal relations
are built upon this dependency or its denial.
The broad field of the dynamics indicates the generalized character of emotion.
The test of these conclusions is their workability. You will discover in processing the
enormous importance of emotion. The emotion of an individual can be frozen by some
facsimile he once wanted but now does not want, and he thereafter handles motion according to
that emotion. Thus a person can be chronically angry or chronically in apathy and his behavior
on all dynamics is the behavior of that emotion. By knowing this and the activities of any level
on a tone scale of emotion, one can predict completely the actions of any given individual or
handle him with ease.
The ideal state is fully self- determined emotion. Only then can one be happy and
The effort in processing is devoted to the goal of raising the individual on the tone
scale. This involves rehabilitating his ability to handle his own facsimiles.
Processing may necessitate the reduction of a number of facsimiles by thought, emotion
or effort processing.
It is a peculiarity of a facsimile that no matter how violent may be the efforts and
counter- efforts of its content, no matter how sad or terrible may be the situation it involves,
once that facsimile is processed by impressing it against reality several times, it no longer has
any power, force, effort or thought content. There are many ways of accomplishing this. In
earlier works cruder and longer methods were used but they accomplished the same purpose.
A memory, a facsimile, contains a record of everything that happened in the actual
incident— sight, sound, taste, pain, emotion, efforts of the individual, efforts of the
environment against the individual. The individual moves it into present time and keeps it for
various reasons and then believes he is unable to rid himself of it. It produces strange
compulsions or obsessions or aberrations in general and it can produce, with its efforts, its
original physical pain.
A facsimile so held by the individual can make him ill. It can even kill him. Such
facsimiles produce over seventy per cent of the illness of Man and make him weak enough to
fall prey to the diseases and accidents which account for the other thirty. Sinusitis, arthritis, eye
trouble, liver difficulties, ulcers, migraine headaches, polio after- effects and so on down the
long, long list surrender if one reduces the facsimile causing the trouble. Whether or not the
facsimile is reduced depends to some degree upon the skill of the auditor. For instance, in my
first book on this new science, I was guilty of overestimating the ability of my fellow man and
have had to work hard since to simplify the techniques and theory so as to make the success of
processing much more certain. It is now in the miracle class, so they say. But even now and
then, someone is too old or too inaccessible for the skill of the auditor working upon him and
so only an alleviation occurs rather than an eradication of the trouble.
The end goal of processing has no finite end. The auditor simply tries to raise his
pre- clear up the scale as far as possible in the time allowed and to eradicate the most evident
psychosomatic. There are levels of the tone scale which have not been attained but which seem
attainable. These unattainable levels —at this time— are so far above anything ever attained by
any Man before this that the pre- clear need not worry about being lifted only a little way.
The pre- clear generally starts with the environment in rather heavy control of him. The
modern educational system, various laws and parental authority all seek to cause the preclear to
be an effect of the environment rather than a CAUSE of environmental effects. When he has
come to a level where he can be self- determined on the majority of the dynamics, his case is
considered closed. This book assists him to attain the goal.
(THE FIRST ACT)
The processing section of this volume is divided into fifteen acts. Each one of these
covers a certain phase of a case. If the individual is working with an auditor then he will find
that the auditor is piloting him through these same fifteen acts and that this book is being used
supplementary to auditor checking. If the individual has given himself the task of going
through this volume by himself, he follows the same procedure and each section is of necessity
to be taken up in turn.
Each act is begun by a description of what the process means and how it is applied and
the end it is intended to accomplish.
It is not necessary to BELIEVE what you find in this volume for the material to work.
If you begin processing as in the doubtful class, you will find your doubts resolving as you
Another can read these processes to you. You can read them yourself. You can do them
between sessions with an auditor. You can get an auditor to do all the work for you.
You will find included a chart of attitudes toward life. This might be called a “button
chart” for it contains the major difficulties people have. It is also a self- evaluation chart. You
can find a level on it where you agree and that is your level of reaction toward life. This chart
complements the HUBBARD CHART OF HUMAN EVALUATION but is specially prepared
for this volume and for this type of processing. Your use of the chart in your processing is
You will also find a disc included with this book. The disc is employed whenever there
is a long list of questions. Its use is described where it is first used in the section.
You may find these processes too difficult for you and would therefore desire some
assistance. There are many professional people all over the United States qualified in the
application of the processes of this new science. By writing to the publisher of this book you
may obtain the name and address of the professional auditor nearest you.
This new science has moved very rapidly and new developments have cut down the
number of hours required in processing to below 100 with the new techniques. You should
count on spending at least a hundred hours with this present book including any effort
processing you may receive from an auditor.
This book, by itself, will do more for you than professional processing could have
done in June of 1951, much less June of 1950. Into it has gone an additional two years of
intensive work and investigation. Anywhere that this text or these processes disagree with
books or data earlier than December of 1951, this book, not the earlier work, is correct. The
line of advance has been very consistent but sometimes a superficial student cannot follow the
logical advance line.
While an individual does not have to understand this new science if he is being audited,
one who is working this volume by himself should have a fairly good understanding of basic
It will save time if you will review the text of this volume up to this point and
understand it. Then answer the following questions. Write in the book with a pencil.
What is the goal of life?
What is life trying to accomplish ?
How many fields is the life organism interested in?
What is a facsimile?
What is the purpose of the human mind?
What is meant by CAUSE and EFFECT?
Is a facsimile permanent?
How does “memory” or “remembering” differ from reexperiencing facsimiles?
THE SECOND ACT
The anatomy of the static of Life demonstrates it to have three interdependent
characteristics. Each one of these three is as important as the other two. They are Reality,
Affinity and Communication.
Reality itself could be considered that on which Man agrees to be real. There is an old,
moth- chewed philosophic concern about perception. Are things real only when we see them ?
Or are things real? In other words, is there any reality. Well, desks and chairs seem very real to
me. And they seem very real to you. Thus we agree that there are desks and chairs and people
and cars and a world and the stars. Sane men have a very solid agreement on reality. They
agree that things are real. Insane people have hallucinations. Hallucinations are imagined
realities with which nobody else agrees. When an individual does not agree with the rest of the
race upon the reality of matter, energy, space and time, the rest of the race locks him up. Ideas
are not matter, energy, space or time and so there can be disagreement on ideas and agreement
upon the reality of matter, energy, space and time. This agreement upon MEST, then, is reality.
Reality could be said to be agreement above 2.0 on the tone scale, agreement not so much with
people but with MEST’s actuality. This is one corner of our triangle.
The next corner is affinity. The physical universe has what is known as cohesion.
Matter stays together. This is, in the life static as it operates on matter, AFFINITY. Affinity is
love above 2.0. Love, as a word, has too many meanings, and so we use an old, old word,
affinity, as meaning the feeling of love or brotherhood from one dynamic to another.
The third corner of the triangle is communication. Communication is actually done via
the sense channels. One sees a rock. By sight he is communicating with the rock. He feels a
blade of grass. He is then communicating, via a sense channel, with the blade of grass. When
one talks to another person he is sending an impulse from “I” to the vocal cords which set up
physical universe sound waves which reach the ears of the other person, are translated into
nerve impulses and so convert into an impingement upon “I” of the other person. Com-
munication by talk, then, goes from Life to Life via the physical universe. It is the same with
touch. One person touches another. This is communication via the physical universe persons.
There may be direct, non- physical universe communication channels from “I” to “I.” The most
tangible of these is emotional impact.
One cannot have affinity without agreement. One cannot have agreement without some
form of communication. One cannot have communication without agreement. One cannot have
agreement without affinity. One cannot have communication without affinity. This inevitable
triangle may be at any level on the tone scale, high or low. If communication is destructive, the
affinity drops to anger and agreement is violent disagreement.
At 0.0, which is death, Affinity, Communication and Reality are wholly physical
universe for the body and are the cohesion’s, the connections and the aspects of the physical
At 1.0, which is fear, the Affinity is poor, being fearful, the Communication is twisted
and consists of lies, the reality is poor and is agreed upon for covert purposes.
At 2.0, which is antagonism, the Affinity is broken into hostility, the Communication is
nagging or disagreeable, the Reality is contradictory to others just to contradict and is therefore
At 3.0 which is above the normal person, Affinity is love, it is present but reserved, the
Communication is conservative, the Reality is cautious but is agreed upon after being proven.
At 4.0 which is cheerfulness, Affinity is affectionate, Communication is free and
constructive, Reality is good and agreement is general.
Above 4.0 we have many levels but ARC (Affinity, Reality and Communication) are
getting above a physical universe aspect. Out of ARC we can derive any understanding. In fact,
logic evolves out of ARC. At 4.0 we have lower level understanding and understanding
increases to complete knowledge when a very high band is reached— above 20.0.
ARC are actually the interplay’s of Life active in the physical universe.
When you communicate with an antagonistic person, you have to enter into an
“affinity” and a reality of 2.0. When you show affinity for 1.0, which is FEAR, you inherit the
communication and agreement level of the 1.0. An individual, to escape this inevitable
transaction, has to be above 4.0 on the tone scale.
In order to have an understanding of yourself, you must have good ARC with yourself.
It is NOT evil to like yourself or love yourself. It is very low toned not to be fond of
All the dynamics are interactive. If you love others you will love yourself. If you hate
others you will hate yourself. If you hate men, you will hate along the other dynamics even
when you cover it with “sympathy” as you will discover in a later act.
A healthy state of being is to be a friend to yourself. If you have few friends, if you
don’t like friends, you won’t like yourself either.
If you are afraid of people, you won’t trust yourself and will be afraid of what you
If you are afraid of animals you will also be afraid of possessions and sex and people
and anything else.
Occasionally people have special fears. These are only concentrations upon one thing.
A person, without admitting it, will also be afraid on the other dynamics, but will not have
It is not enough to suddenly determine to LOVE everybody. That is forcing affinity on
Affinity is enforced from 2.0 down to near 1.0. Around 1.0 we have “propitiation,”
buying people off, pretending affection. From here on down affinity is inhibited.
Thus we see that enforced, demanded ARC is aberrative. And we see that inhibited
ARC is also aberrative.
Let’s put this to test. Do you recall a person you had to kiss? Well, did you feel
agreeable toward this person? Did you want to touch (communicate with) or talk to this person
And another test. Do you recall a person who pushed you away when you felt
affectionate? What was your immediate communication reaction? What was your agreement?
And another one. Do you recall a person who demanded that you talk to them ? What
was your level of affinity ? What degree of agreeableness did you feel?
And yet another. Do you recall a person who demanded that you agree with him against
your wishes? What was your level of affinity? What was your level of communication?
And still another. Do you recall a person who continually corrected you? This is
inhibited agreement. What was your reaction level on affinity ? What was your reaction as to
Do you recall a person who was afraid of anything and everything? What was your
affinity? What was your agreement ?
A person high on the tone scale reacts down toward but does not necessarily reach the
level of the person he addresses. However, he tends to reach toward that level. And if he stays
in the proximity of a lower toned person long enough he will eventually become chronically in
Do you know somebody who affects you badly after you have been in his company for
awhile? Does this person like people? Does he tell the truth? Does he communicate easily? Do
you agree with his views ? Here is ARC in action in present time.
After you have been in the vicinity of somebody who insists you talk, insists you agree,
insists you feel as he feels, what is your own tone level toward him?
After you have associated with a person who won’t let you talk, won’t agree with you,
won’t let you feel as you want to feel, what is your reaction ? Where is this person on the tone
scale? This is an inhibited ARC person or below 1.0. This person is afraid or apathetic. This
person has endocrine ills. This person lies. This person hides things. This person is physically
and mentally maladjusted.
It happens that anyone on a given level of the tone scale seeks to pull everyone else to
that level of the tone scale. A low level individual is pulled up a bit by a high level individual
and then the high level individual comes down a bit.
Low toned people work toward succumb. Below 2.0 the effort is toward death, one
way or another, covertly or overtly, toward succumb. The angry person, failing to destroy
others, will destroy himself. The apathetic person is almost dead. The activity of persons below
2.0 is directed toward the gaining of sympathy. They try to make higher toned people sympa-
thetic and thus destroy them. Sympathy for low toned cases is a social aberration. It is deadly.
No low toned person can be “helped.” Try to help a person below 2.0 and the result is
ingratitude plus in the end. For the goal of that person is to succumb. Higher toned individuals
don’t need help.
Low toned persons can be audited to above 2.0 however after which they will seek to
survive along all dynamics. If you suppose you lie below 2.0 and have persevered this far, you
There is, by the way, very practical present time use of this data about ARC. If you
want a person to agree with you, address him at his obvious tone level and you will go into
communication with him and he will feel affinity for you. If you want affinity from a person,
use his methods of communication to others with him and go into agreement with him on his
concept of the other dynamics. A salesman can sell a 1.5 (anger case) anything if that thing is
shown to be destructive to other dynamics.
This is why the government, a rather 1.5 affair, buys atomic fission as a weapon rather
than a means to send Man to the stars.
Here, then, is the second act. First achieve an understanding of the factors in
understanding— ARC— contained in this section. Then answer these questions.
List the persons in your present time environment who enforce affinity on you.
List the persons in your present time environment who enforce agreement upon you.
List the persons in your present time environment who demand that you communicate
List the persons in your present time environment who refuse your affection.
List the persons in your present time environment who won’t let you communicate with
List the persons in your present time environment who refuse to let you agree with
Now go back and put a tone scale number after each name as an estimate. Where is each
one on the chart of triangles earlier in this section?
Don’t worry about your accuracy. This is only to give you an estimate of the kind of
reaction your environment might have on you. And to promote your understanding of these
Now take the first person you listed and go to the chart of attitudes which accompanies
this volume. From the number you assigned the person, go across the big chart at that level. If
you assigned somebody to 2.0, follow 2.0 across the big chart. Read each attitude on the 2.0
line horizontally across the chart. This should give you some understanding of that person.
And it should tell you what his effect might be on another.
Take the next person with your assigned number across the chart. Follow on through
with each person you listed.
You probably duplicated several listings with the same number.
With this exercise complete, let us delve a little into the past.
List persons in the past who insisted they were your friends. This is a variety of
List persons in the past who insisted you agree with them.
List persons in the past who insisted you communicate with them.
List persons in the past who would not show you affection.
List persons in the past who refused to communicate with you.
List persons in the past who would not let you agree on things.
INCLUDE ALL YOUR PARENTS AND RELATIVES HERE AND AS THEY COME
INTO THESE CLASSIFICATIONS.
Assign a tone scale number to each one.
Check each one for attitudes across the big chart.
What effect do you suppose all these attitudes, past and present, have on you?
THE THIRD ACT
With the help of the CHART OF ATTITUDES let us take a look at your present day
You may have realized, while inspecting this chart, that you yourself were not quite at
the top. You need not worry particularly if you discovered this. Unlike some witch doctors in
modern dress, this book is making no effort to condemn you. There were various reasons why
you permitted yourself to be lowered on this tone scale— for you had to give your permission
to have anything serious happen to you (a matter which we will cover under
SELF- DETERMINISM in a later section of this volume).
Let us make an assessment of how you regard things in your today. Write the answers.
(See the chart for the data in each column given.) USE PHRASES AND WORDS OF CHART
IN YOUR ANSWERS. WRITE TONE SCALE NUMBER OF PHRASE.
What is your most common emotion?
How do you feel about survival?
How right are you about what you do?
What responsibilities are you willing to shoulder ?
How do you feel about possessions?
Do you feel you are anybody?
Do you think most about the past, the present or the future?
How does motion affect you ?
How do you handle truth?
Do you trust or distrust?
Do you know or are you doubtful ?
Do you want to cause things or be an effect ?
What is your “state of beingness” (next to last column )?
Turn back to the SECOND ACT and look over the people you have listed. Do any of
your reactions match theirs? In other words, are you comparable to any of those persons listed
You should be able to discover that you are carrying, in present time, the past attitudes
of others. In present time you should be YOU. The phrases you listed in this THIRD ACT
actually don’t describe YOU. They describe those parts of YOU which you have turned over to
other people in the past. You are carrying on attitudes of people who are probably departed
long since. They are not very survival.
A little bit or a great deal of YOU is described up along the 16.0 to 40.0 band of the
chart. Our job is to get all of you as high as possible on the chart and leave the parts of “you”
which rightly belonged to others behind us.
Human beings, operating along all the dynamics, are actually rather heroic and noble
characters. They see cruelty or suffering and they, particularly in their youth and strength, take
it on to spare the world. They see someone, even themselves, perform a cruel act or have an
unhappy experience, and they regret it. Then they discover that they themselves can fail. They
then blame others for their plight. It is a cycle of nobly accepting something and then, to save
one’s own being, trying to get rid of it in time. Youth is so high on the chart innately that it
accepts the evil of the world with open arms in an effort to make it a better world. Then,
staggering under the burden, finding none to share it, they fight to give it away either by being
evil or being sick.
This will become much clearer before we have finished here. And you will be a lot
higher on the chart.
Let’s assess your present time now.
What phrases on the whole chart best describes your attitude toward life in general right
Can you recall a specific instant when somebody else uttered that phrase? Where were
you at the time? Outdoors or indoors ? Standing or sitting ? Can you recall an earlier time you
When did you first tell yourself that phrase? And don’t tell it to yourself again because
you are the firmest influence upon YOU. What you say to YOU sticks.
Go straight across the list and, column by column, pick out your attitude toward the
world in which you are now living. Write these down in the space below.
Now trace each one of these phrases back to the earliest time you heard somebody else
use it. Get the exact moment if possible. Get a visio (a view in memory) of the person saying
it. Get as many as you can of each phrase and the earliest time it was uttered. FOR THIS USE
YOUR DISC. Put the disc over the phrase you wrote and recall the incident with the perception
of it called for on the disc or the emotion as requested by the disc.
You can see now that your present time concerns are to some degree the worries and
concerns of somebody else in the past.
The value of past experiences lies in the estimation of the future. Past experiences are
not nearly as valuable as one might suppose. There is an enormous emphasis on the value of
experience. Go to make out an application form for a job and you will find that they are mostly
concerned with experience. It is a sort of trap to enslave people, giving their experiences such
value. Actually a snapping bright mind and an alert body are worth a hundred thousand years
of “experience” behind some dusty desk or counter and an ability to do a “quick study” of a
subject is so much more valuable than an education— complete with a hundred A’s— in that
subject that one might be led to suppose that maybe “education” as it is laughingly called might
possibly be over stressed. Check your history and you will discover that the men whose marble
busts adorn the modern halls of learning did not themselves have a formal education: Bacon,
Spencer, Voltaire, etc., etc., etc., down the whole list; two or three exceptions prove the rule.
Not even long study has as much value as people might have wanted you to believe. Your life,
from any instant in it, can be free of all past experience and your carbon- oxygen motor would
continue to run and you could pick up what you needed to know in a couple of months, even
change your name and yet survive handsomely. If you won a Nobel prize last year, that’s
tough: you will try madly to keep the experience and be a Nobel prize winner instead of trying
to be enthusiastic enough in the tomorrow’s to win another prize. The getting is the sport, the
having is a defensive action and makes you a platoon pinned down by enemy fire. Thus with
experience as with MEST.
So let’s look at present time.
And let’s be blunt.
What are you trying to hide in present time?
What would happen to you if it were discovered?
How many things like this are there in present time?
Don’t bother to list them. If other people found these things out they would probably
blink, maybe they’d chatter over fences. You might get fired or divorced. But I’ll tell you a
secret about secrets. No single person to whom you uttered the confidence would NOT have a
similar list to hide. They’ve all masturbated and had clandestine affairs and a lot of them
venereal diseases. They’ve stolen money and maybe some have even left a cold dead body in a
culvert. They’ve lied and cheated and done blackmail. And the funny part of it is, only those
who have a long, long list of things to hide would even begin to reprimand you.
And another thing. Anyone who punished you would someday regret it. A dean in
college who threatened to flunk me for writing a bit of truth in what was the longest sentence in
the English language (500 words without colons or semicolons) had it weigh upon his mind to
such an extent that he wrote me, years afterwards, when he had retired and was nearly dead,
the most astonishing apology.
You are treating yourself in present time much as you were treated by others in the past.
And you punish yourself far more than anyone would ever punish you. The suicide is simply
self- executioner, having been found guilty by his own court.
Next, how hard and to whom are you trying to be RIGHT in the face of anything and
everything including facts?
What responsibilities are you shirking? Why?
What are you doing with your possessions? Why?
What do you think of yourself? Why?
Is the future or the past receiving your most intense thought ? Why ?
Do you flinch at motions? Why?
How closely do you stay to truth in present time ? Why not ?
Do you trust your environment? Why not?
What don’t you KNOW ? Why not?
What are you trying to cause? Why?
What are you trying to make affect you ? Why ?
Who are you trying to blame in present time ? Why ?
What are you blaming yourself for in present time? Why?
Do you like your work ? Why?
Is your sex life satisfactory? Why?
What threatens your present security? Why?
Self- confidence alone is security. Your ability is your security. There is no security but
you. Let’s make the best possible you we know how. Almost all the things you thought of in
the above list can be remedied by your own action without consulting for a moment the
permission of anything or anyone. Innately, deep down, you know this. Actually you are a
giant tied down with cotton lint. You tied the knots and furnished the string and said where
you’d lie. The only trouble you might have in processing is refusing for some strange but
discoverable reason, having to do with concern for others, to burst these light strands and stand
up. Fortunately this volume offers more than such inspiration, but the cold, basic truth is that
you are a vital and necessary part of this world and anything that is wrong with you, you have
assumed in an effort to be what has passed for “human.”
THE FOURTH ACT
You will note on the edge of the CHART OF ATTITUDES that from 0.0 to 1.5 is
considered to be severely aberrated. That from 1.5 to 2.8 is considered to be neurotic. That
from 2.8 to 10.0 is considered acceptable.
When these figures were first calculated it was thought that normal was about 2.8. It
isn’t. That is generous beyond generosity. Normal is well below that according to amassed data
since the first computations. The reason for this seems to be in two distinct fields. The first is
the environment, the second is education.
Education, continued long enough in the usual school and college, depresses the
individual toward 0.3 or apathy. The person being “educated” is, day after day, immobilized,
made into an effect by instructors and denied original thought. He becomes an habitual “effect”
and ceases to cause. He begins to respond automatically according to a pattern of manners
given him by the home and the school system. This is the primary reason why the modern
college has yet to turn out an artist from an arts major. An artist must be a cause and continue to
be cause. Majoring in writing, for instance, is a sure route to being an editor, or worse, a critic,
rather than a writer. All the editors and critics, according to writers, are failed writers. They are
also arts majors for the most part, with wonderful grades. The writers revolted early. This is no
criticism of modern education or educators, it is a small signpost pointing toward the source of
Education is also done in the home. The level of that education is the level of the home.
The goal of most parents is obedience. Obedience is apathy. Most BAD children become good
the moment you let them up the tone scale.
The general society today may be commented upon by a review of the front pages of the
newspapers. The “public” buys the news it wants. The newspapers, being an expanded version
today of the old house- to- house advertising handout, print news to sell papers. The tone range
of the usual front page today is from 1.5 down to 0.1. A man could invent something that
would feed all the starving people in the world with ease and get a news notice one inch high
near the obituary column. The blood- soaked and sordid front pages of the world’s newspapers
tell you that Man has sunk pretty far down. His newspaper is the modern American’s Roman
Circus, his government is becoming his corn. Bluntly, the normal is a very sick man.
There are three valid therapies. The first is processing. The second is education. The
third is environment. We find the first two in this new science. The third must sometimes be
changed for a pre- clear may be in such a vigorously painful environment that his gains in
processing are lost in his struggle against his surroundings. Very fast processing is one answer
to the environmental problem. Wives have been known to practically murder husbands who
dared try to get up out of apathy via processing. Apathy is a very docile and obedient, if sick,
state of not beingness. Husbands have been known to react similarly when their wives tried to
get well. And in the past some mental practitioners have gone raving insane when one of their
patients started to climb into well being via processing.
The chief difference between the severely aberrated, the neurotic and the “acceptable”
bands is concerned with TIME.
The severely aberrated gives his attention mainly to the past. The neurotic is giving his
attention mainly to the immediate present. The “acceptable” is giving his attention to the future.
By forcing attention into the present (raising necessity level) one can raise a severely
aberrated person into a neurotic level. The AAs do this with alcoholics, persuading them to live
for the present only. Your alcoholic, of course, is still trying to untangle the past— with a
forgetter known as alcohol, just as your drug addict is shutting off the agony of yesterday with
However, almost anyone is giving more attention than necessary to the past, reserves
his living in the present and restrains his planning for the future. Your 1.5, for instance,
considers it bad taste to be enthusiastic about the future. “Don’t hope too much.” For the 0.5
both present and future are unthinkable
Attention is a remarkable thing in that it must be at optimum sweep for a person to be
happy. When attention is too fixed on one thing, if that thing is a survival threat, it tends to
remain fixed. If a threat to survival is understood to be present and yet cannot be located,
attention swings endlessly without fixing. This is “fear of the unknown.” Fixed and unfixed
attention, when given to dangerous problems, tend to remain that way unless the problem is
The human mind’s basic purpose in operation is the posing and resolving of problems it
observes as related to survival along any of the dynamics. A problem is resolved when it is
answered YES or NO. A problem such as SHOULD I GO ? must be answered YES or NO if
the mind is to file it as a conclusion. If it continues as MAYBE, the problem stays in the
computer and influences the next solutions. Did you ever know a person who had a lot of
trouble reaching decisions ? Recall a specific time ? Well, somewhere in that person’s past was
a problem which was not answered YES or NO but only maybe. A very “serious” sort of a
problem comes up with WAS IT MY FAULT ? When that one lands on MAYBE the computer
tends to jam. (The answer by the way is that nothing is anybody’s fault.)
Problems do not solve for two reasons: The first is lack of data; the second is an earlier
unsolved problem on the same subject.
One has to evaluate data in order to resolve problems. When one fixes his attention on
something dangerous he is probably over evaluating the data. When one is unable to fix his
attention it is because he cannot find data to evaluate.
This will become clearer to you when you have completed the following exercise. Do it
with your pencil.
LIST FIVE PROBLEMS, WITH PEOPLE OR OBJECTS OR CIRCUMSTANCES, WHICH
YOU ARE NOT SOLVING IN THE PRESENT.
NOW LIST WHAT YOU WISH YOU KNEW ABOUT EACH ONE OF THE PROBLEMS
ABOVE. (THE MISSING DATA YOU WISH YOU HAD.)
NOW LIST HOW IMPORTANT YOU NOW FEEL THESE PROBLEMS ACTUALLY ARE
OR WHETHER OR NOT THEY ARE NOW SOLVED.
IF ANY OF THE FIVE PROBLEMS REMAIN UNSOLVED, LIST WHAT YOU WOULD
HAVE TO DO TO SOLVE THEM.
Now let us take a glance at the past. There are several problems, undoubtedly, which
you feel you did not solve.
LIST FIVE PROBLEMS, WITH PEOPLE OR OBJECTS OR CIRCUMSTANCES, WHICH

HAVE TO DO OR KNOW IN ORDER TO RESOLVE THEM?
Let us now take a look at the problems of the future.
LIST FIVE PROBLEMS, WITH PEOPLE OR OBJECTS OR CIRCUMSTANCES WHICH
YOU THINK YOU WILL HAVE TO SOLVE IN THE FUTURE.
NOW LIST WHAT YOU WILL HAVE TO DO NOW TO SOLVE THESE PROBLEMS IN
NOW LIST HOW VITAL THESE PROBLEMS MAY BECOME TO YOUR EXISTENCE.
IF ANY OF THE ABOVE PROBLEMS WORRY YOU, IT IS BECAUSE YOU HAVE NOT
DECIDED UPON YOUR COURSE OF ACTION. TRY TO LIST YOUR COURSE AS IT
WILL PROBABLY BE TAKEN.
In this same act, we should take up goals. Some poet once said that a man’s dreams
were important and that when the last of a man’s dreams were dead, dead was the man. He
didn’t know about this new science.
Dreams, goals, ambitions, these are the stuff Man uses for fuel. SURVIVAL is nothing
but the effort to accomplish action. There is the broad goal of all survival. There is the small
goal of a good action. SURVIVAL, action and goals are inseparable.
Happiness could be defined as the emotion of progress toward desirable goals. There is
an instant of contemplation of the last goal in which one is content. But contentment becomes
boredom immediately that new goals do not come to view. There is no more unhappy thing
than a man who has accomplished all his ends in life. Gibbon, for instance died immediately
after finishing his great work. It is doubtful if men die when they have great goals ahead of
them, save perhaps in the violent action of some attempted attainments. It is doubtful if it would
take more than a flick with a feather to kill somebody who has no goals. The Filipino irregular
of 1901, battling for an independent state, would charge seventy- five yards and kill his man
AFTER that man had put a Krag- Jorgenson bullet through the heart of the Filipino. A neurotic
without goals catches a harmless bug, sneezes and dies. Or sneezes and dies without a bug
getting near him.
People always begin with goals. They often fail. When they have failed often enough
they stop thinking about the future and start worrying over the present. When the present hands
them a few failures they start worrying about the past. They go “out of present time.” If you
were simply to walk through an insane asylum and tell each inmate, “Come up to Present
Time” a small percentage would immediately become sane and stay sane. The order would
unfix their attention from a past maybe or fix their attention on the present. It has been tried and
More happily, let’s examine your goals and fears.
IN THIS COLUMN LIST FIVE GOALS YOU HAD IN THE PAST.
IN THIS COLUMN LIST WHAT HAPPENED TO THE FIVE GOALS IN THE PAST.
IN THIS COLUMN LIST FIVE FEARS WHICH YOU HAVE IN YOUR PRESENT.
IN THIS COLUMN LIST FIVE FEARS WHICH YOU MIGHT EXPECT TO ENCOUNTER
IN THE FUTURE.
Now go back over your lists and for each item in the goals columns, see if you can find
some person in your past or present who might have these goals or who might have had them.
Some person other than yourself.
Now go down the past and present and future fears column and see if you can find
some person in your past who might have had these fears other than yourself.
When you have noted down these people or one person, answer the following:
IS THAT PERSON DEAD ? ARE THOSE PEOPLE DEAD? DID THEY FAIL?
You should be able to sort out your own goals from “dead men’s goals.” And you
should be able to sort out your own fears from “dead men’s fears.”
It’s a “very peculiar thing” that you may be seeking a life continuation and life
realization from people no longer amongst us in that precise identity.
Out of nobility and grief, so does one take on the burdens of those who have laid down
their burdens. This includes pets.
There may be one dead person or half a dozen. One dead pet or two or three. List
briefly the goals of each dead person you have loved. Then briefly list the goals of each pet.
You may have wept doing this. If so, come up to present time. Now recall the last good
time you had in the fullest detail. Be very precise in trying to reexperience this good time.
Let’s see now if you can recall the following for each person and pet you may have
1. The precise moment you first decided you had affection for them. Any moment you
decided you had affection for them.
2. Any moment you decided you were like them. The first moment you decided you were
3. Any time you regretted something you had done to them. The first time you regretted
something you had done to them.
“Magic drugs” such as penicillin depend upon the ability of the body, not the drug.
With this much background failure the world has been in apathy about the body. It was
born, it grew, it died. Surgery and drugs could stem the tide of time a brief moment. But that
was all. This dramatic struggle for knowledge of the human body was a struggle against time.
Time’s scythe in the hands of that grim gentleman, Death, won every contest.
Now and then a mystic would rise in the world and with a few passes of the hand cause
the crippled, the sightless, the faltering to bloom with life once more. Then the mystic, the
adept, the master would vanish and Man would struggle on with attention to their relics but
without many repetitions of the miracles.
That faith or thought could do such astonishing things in the hands of a master or adept
brought men like Freud into heavy ambition to resolve the human body’s ills by resolving the
ills of the mind. The medical profession of his day ostracized Freud. Today psychoanalysis and
psychologists speak with contempt of Freud— perhaps they owe him too much. But Freud is
the grand old man of psychosomatic healing. He popularized the idea that something could be
done about human unhappiness via treatment of the mind and that human ills might be handled
by handling the “ego,” the “id” and the other mental entities Freud thought he had discovered.
Freud has many pupils Jung, Adler and others who decided only they themselves could see the
light and so went sailing off into further and further incredibles. Of all these it now seems
evident that Freud himself was the only one of them who had even started toward the straight
and narrow road to complete physical rehabilitation of the body via the human mind.
In my boyhood I studied Freud second hand. His brilliant student, the late Commander
Thompson of the U. S. Navy, had just left Freud and Vienna when he saw fit to dazzle a young
mind with the idea that perhaps the riddle of thought could be resolved. Studying Freud tenth
hand, through his books and what people thought people had said about what Freud said, the
psychoanalysis and psychiatric world had broken cleanly with Freud years before I even came
to a university. There was no studying Freud in any college. They did not teach Freud. He had
been abandoned by the professional cliques.
In the meanwhile a new subject had risen in the world. Nuclear physics they call it
now—” atomic and molecular phenomena” they called it then. No atoms had been split
effectively, but from Newton to Halley to Einstein, men had been studying the physical
universe and had now encoded the subjects of matter, energy, space and time. Here was a new
field of knowledge. It was so new that those of us who studied in it were known as the “Buck
Rogers boys,” a comic strip character of the day who sailed off to Mars or Venus and had
incredible adventures. We experimented with rockets and the doppler effects and later found
employment difficult to achieve except as orthodox engineers. Although it was my father’s
ambition that I become one of these orthodox engineers, bless him, I found that with all this
new knowledge, transits were dull. In order to pursue studies in this field I had to write for any
magazine that would buy. Many of us, in the decade of the thirties, were “Buck Rogers boys”
in earnest, writing “science fiction” for a growing audience of fans. Then came Hiroshima and
“Buck Rogers boys” started to have such importance to the governments of the world that they
are almost prisoners. Having escaped offered employment by Russia and the United States, I
continued my work in the field where I had started, the human mind, from the viewpoint of
mathematics and nuclear physics. As late as 1950 I was still acting fast to keep out of U. S.
Government research laboratories.
Culmination of research in what is popularly known as this new science and more
correctly known as “Scientology” has yet to occur. But in 1948 a thesis was written and
submitted to the medical professions which demonstrated that workability of alleviating
physical ills by an address to mental problems.
You as a personal identity are 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. YOU then link into the protoplasm line with your genetic blueprint— the plans of
construction of a new body in the orthodox manner of conception, birth and growth. You
depend upon some inherent abilities of protoplasm but you, as experience and identity, monitor
that protoplasm’s ability and modify it. There is a family line, then, from generation to
generation, modified by YOU as experience. YOU are not necessarily part of that family line.
Every child, for instance, distrusts his identity as a family member. And there are numerous
cases of record wherein a child, up to the age of three or five, recalled entirely who he had
been— but forgot it under the pummeling of his “imagination” by adults. Perhaps you take off
after some lifetime and go to heaven. Nobody can argue successfully about that. But YOU are
the source of yourself with regard to various generations. Now this, by effort processing,
becomes so irrefutable, so clear and unmistakable that if it can be disproven, then the laws of
heat and fission can be disproven as well. We are on solid ground about immortality and all the
rest of it for the first time in history.
YOU are evidently quite eternal as a personal identity. You get snarled up in the modern
social aberrations about only living once and play the game as though you would never get
another chance— which you will get as certainly as the sun will rise tomorrow.
Now if you can handle a body in construction you can certainly modify one in growth
and form. And so you do. You can modify it to the degree of going blind or getting arthritis
and being bed- ridden or having migraines or putting any other imperfection on yourself. You,
as CAUSE, are continually shouldering the ills of the world and modifying yourself
Once having taken on such an ill to “help” another, you may be very reluctant to give up
the infirmity. Evidently it doesn’t help the other very much but you, with your social aberration
that a person lives only once and never again, take the illness or demise of another very
seriously. Much too seriously. And so there you are with somebody’s arthritis. Of course, it
isn’t his. It’s an old injury of your own— your own facsimile— which you are holding in place
for him. People will give up any illness or infirmity which is theirs— their very own— with
immediate ease and no qualms. But they are quite tenacious of the ills they have shouldered for
others. This caused old workers in the field of the mind to suppose that people simply refused
to get well. No, people simply refuse to give up the illness of others for whom they have made
themselves responsible until they clearly see that holding the illness will not bring back or
restore the health of that other. It’s a wonderful world. Man has condemned Man for selfish-
ness for eons and here we find Man only gets lastingly crippled or lame to “help” another.
Once it was said that if people knew the world was going to end tomorrow, the
communication lines of the world would be jammed with calls from people seeking to say they
loved one another. It is probably quite true.
In the field of illness, however, once one realizes how little it helps, one can give up
another’s aches and pains and resume his own health. It is quite a decision but one which
processing itself assists. You may find that you will be trying to make that decision. The other
day a totally blind man under processing stopped the session on the abrupt realization that he
would see wholly and clearly for the first time in years. Just an instant before his sight turned
on, he balked. Why? His trouble with sight had to do with the death of his brother. His brother
had been injured and was blinded in an automobile accident. The moment the brother died, this
pre- clear had taken on the burdens of his brother.
WHICH YOU WISH YOU COULD ATTAIN IN THE TOMORROW’S, SUCH AS
PHYSICAL BEAUTY OF STRENGTH, WHETHER YOU THINK YOU CAN ATTAIN
THEM OR NOT. GET AS WILD AS YOU LIKE.
NOW LET’S BE CRITICAL. LIST FIVE THINGS WHICH YOU THINK MAY BE
WRONG WITH YOUR
PRESENT PHYSICAL BEING. LIST THEM WITH THE THOUGHT THAT THEY
MIGHT BE REMEDIED. SUCH THINGS AS FREQUENT COLDS, ETC.
NOW LIST THE PERSONS OR PETS WHO HAVE FAILED OR ARE DEAD WHO HAD
THINGS WRONG WITH THEM. THERE MAY BE MORE THAN ONE WITH EACH.
TAKE THE FIRST ERROR YOU LISTED ABOVE AS NUMBER ONE AND WRITE THE
NAME OF THE PERSON WHO MIGHT HAVE HAD THAT ILL AFTER NUMBER ONE
BELOW AND SO ON. YOU MAY NOT BE ABLE TO ACCOUNT FOR SOME OF THE
CONDITIONS. THAT IS ALL RIGHT.
THE SIXTH ACT
The subjects of effort and counter- effort, emotion and counter- emotion are very new in
the knowledge of Man. In continuous investigation of mental and physical phenomena, I
chanced upon these manifestations and put them to work immediately. Such was their reach
and significance that auditors from coast to coast, within sixty days, were “cracking cases”
which they had found hitherto “uncrackable.” Thus you can see that it is well to know
something about them.
Let us take EFFORT. Your mind is continuously at work estimating efforts. When you
go to open a door, your mind estimates the effort necessary to turn the knob and, via emotion,
puts that effort into action. It estimates the effort necessary to pull the door back and puts that
into action. If the door handle turned as desired and the door opened as desired, your
estimation of effort was correct.
Your mind calculates efforts for the present and for the future. It puts efforts into action
now or in the future. Or it simply estimates them and holds them back and never applies them.
Your mind estimates the efforts of the environment, how fast cars go, how hard tea cups have
to fall to break. And it even estimates efforts when it “day- dreams,” which is to say that it
thinks of the efforts involved in that and that without even desiring to puts them into action.
Thinking of a goal is putting something into the future to which one can build by effort. An
attained goal is a summation of efforts.
If you calculated the door properly, you opened it smoothly. If you calculated wrong
and the door stuck, you revere wrong. Did you ever have a door or a drawer stick on you
consistently? After a while you became angry with it. Then you began to avoid it. For the mind
which survives well, estimates efforts well. It is right, which is to say, it estimates efforts
The author writing a story estimates many, many efforts. If he is right, it is an
interesting story and sells. If he is wrong it is not an interesting story and it doesn’t sell.
The mind all through evolution was subjected to countless efforts on the part of the
environment. The wind, sea, sun and other organisms all had efforts to throw at the organism.
The organism that handled these counter- efforts well, survived well. It came to use these very
counter- efforts as its own efforts. The evolution of efforts is from counter- effort to employed
Effort means force and direction. Your life is a contest between your own efforts and
Any psychosomatic illness you have is some counter- effort, some past effort of the
environment, you aren’t handling or using right. The facsimile of the effort itself is in the
facsimile. Facsimiles are recordings of effort. Perception is the recording of physical universe
efforts and your thoughts, conclusions and efforts about them as well as your emotion.
Effort processing is easily done. One finds where the facsimile of an effort is against
the pre- clear and gets the preclear’s effort against it. A pain or pressure turns on and, by
constant reexperiencing, turns off. But effort processing is something which should be done by
any auditor and although it can be done by a pre- clear on himself, must be thoroughly
understood by that pre- clear. There is not enough data in this volume to permit a pre- clear to
effort process himself. To do that he would have to study the main body of this science,
preferably at the Foundation Auditor’s School, or at least through the basic texts.
Emotion and counter- emotion are something else. The preclear should be able to handle
You know what your own emotion is. Anger, fear, grief, apathy. You have
experienced these things. They are part of facsimiles now. Grief is very important as a blocker
in one’s life. Grief takes place where one recognizes his loss and failure as in the death of
somebody he loved and tried to help.
A facsimile which contains chiefly emotion is called, in this science, a SECONDARY
ENGRAM. This would be a unit of assay with ease. They are flattened simply by
re- experiencing them and getting four old conclusions out of then.
A word of caution. Don’t try to run yourself around somebody who may be even
faintly critical. And don’t argue with somebody about it. The wife, mother, father, the
husband, may get into a terrible dither about your effort to feel stronger. They may even have
an interest in keeping you down so they can “take better care of you.” Run one of these
secondaries around such a person and you’ll really fix yourself up.
And by the way, be very suspicious of somebody who doesn’t think you ought to
indulge in this new science. Auditors are always running into situations where they have a son
or a daughter in good condition and well on the road to recovery when the parents step in and
with every argument in the book, with every “good intention” knock the poor preclear into
limbo again. Such people want the pre- clear under control and instinctively realize that the
pre- clear is getting very independent. The pre- clear who argues back simply gets himself
snarled up again. Best to be calm and do your work in private. Then when you are nine feet
tall, do your arguing.
And don’t plead with a wife or a husband or a friend to study this new science against
his or her will and use it on you. They will manage one way or another to turn the processes
around and wreck you. You may have an impulse to use your facsimiles to get sympathy from
such a person. It is quicker and easier just to blow out your brains. The result will be the same.
For when you force somebody to “help you” and “be sympathetic” who has an interest in
keeping you sick, they will manage to make you sick in earnest. Out of their good knowledge
and intentions, of course. There is, for instance, a very sick woman who could be straightened
out by an auditor in about fifteen hours. Yet her husband, hovering like a mother hen, is violent
about letting her be helped: He knows nothing of this new science except that it is successful.
She has had three unsuccessful operations for her condition. He is seeing to it that she is going
to get a fourth which will probably kill her. These are desires to help— out of a frame of
reference which doesn’t work. “Keep him calm. Operate on him. Control him. Mama knows
best” are the sources of the attitude.
Further, you have always had and use what is known as a SERVICE FACSIMILE.
Every time you fail, you pick up this facsimile and become sick or sadly noble. It’s your
explanation to yourself and the world as to how and why you failed. It once got you sympathy.
Sympathy will turn it on again. It may contain the basic condition of being which is now
passing for a common cold or sinusitis or a game leg. You fail at something, then you use the
facsimile. And you get sympathy from somebody. Well, heaven help you if you are around
somebody who doesn’t get the line signals. You use the facsimile and then they don’t
sympathize. You use the facsimile harder. And they are still stone cold. Then you really turn it
on. Maybe it was measles that founded this facsimile. Maybe it was when you broke your leg.
Well, you’ll use it to a point where you’ll get all the symptoms again if you don’t get sympathy
for it. You have two choices: Run out this service facsimile and the reasons for its use as per
the remainder of these acts or get yourself a new associate or partner. For that service facsimile
will get you by and by. You didn’t believe it yourself the first time you decided to use it. Then
the use of it became automatic. And now you “wonder what caused it.” You did.
We remark on the SERVICE FACSIMILE at this place, not to have it run in this act,
but to acquaint you with its existence. For you may hit it in running a secondary and be very
loath to part with it. It is simply a time when you tried to do something and were hurt or failed
and got sympathy for it. Then afterwards when you were hurt or failed and wanted an
explanation you used it. And if you didn’t succeed in getting sympathy for it, you used it so
hard it became a psychosomatic illness.
Let’s take a summary of your body. Maybe we can discover what you are using for a
SERVICE FACSIMILE. Everybody has one or more than one.
LIST ANYTHING WHICH GETS WRONG
WHAT FAILURES SINCE HAVE TURNED THESE ON?
WHO DOESN’T SYMPATHIZE WITH THEM?
WHAT IS THE SIMILARITY BETWEEN THE PERSON WHO DID AND THE PERSON
WHO DIDN’T OR DOESN’T ?
WHAT ARE THE DIFFERENCES BETWEEN THE PERSON WHO DID SYMPATHIZE
AND THE PERSONS WHO DIDN’T OR DON’T?
WHO DID YOU BLAME?
WHO DO YOU BLAME ?
Having and using a service facsimile does not make you a hypochondriac. It simply
makes you human.
The facsimile might release right here. If it doesn’t, there’s a lot of book left.
ONE WORD OF CAUTION ABOUT ALL THIS. PROCESS YOURSELF AT
SPECIFIC TIMES, NOT ALL THE TIME. CHOOSE A PROCESSING TIME AND USE IT.
THEN WHEN IT IS OVER, WAIT UNTIL THE NEXT TIME. DON’T GO AROUND
In the pictures you get of old incidents, you may he seeing yourself “outside of
yourself,” not seeing the scene as you saw it then. This is being “out of valence.” Simply move
in valence to run the incident. Running it outside yourself won’t do very much for you. But if
you run it very many times, you’ll be inside yourself in the scene.
Being outside oneself is the cause of “self- auditing.” In an operation or somewhere,
you slid out. When you self- audit, you may be in the role of somebody who hurt you (a
counter effort) and you’ll just keep on hurting yourself. The section on counter- emotion, later,
clears up this condition if it begins.
You should know this so that you will not be alarmed on several counts. The first is
temporary “euphoria” where you stay happy for two or three days and then get sad again.
That’s a temporary shift, evidently. The second is physical unbalance which can occur as a
temporary affair, where you get a toothache or a headache on one side and the other side seems
numb. Another is a shift of interests.
You won’t contract amnesia but this shift of centers may be responsible for amnesia. A
sudden shift of centers occludes present time experience and then may shift back. It doesn’t
happen in processing.
There is also a whole set of “pseudo- centers,” the personalities of people whom you’ve
tried to help and have failed. These are “valences.” A person can have two or ten dozen of these
“valences,” can be one personality to Joe and another to Agnes, can change at a certain period
of life into an “entirely new person.” This is simply a manifestation of the life continuation
manifestation discussed earlier. All these are relieved by getting rid of mis- emotion.
The ideal state of affairs is the attainment of a super- center. Right and left centers are
always sub- centers. A “super- center” is acquired on discharging all the sympathy and regret on
a case or, in short, the mis- emotion.
Think this over carefully. The incidents are marked by sudden changes in physical
health, old illnesses disappearing, new illnesses appearing. Falling in love may shift centers. A
bump on the head may shift them. Any emotional shock might do it. In particular, incidents
which diminish one’s concept of his ability to handle his surroundings and people may shift
centers. A sudden drop, because of an experience, of one’s importance, may shift centers.
A death, a severe loss, a realization of one’s unimportance, may shift these centers.
Each incident listed should be run. If it is difficult to run as a facsimile, wait until later in the
volume when you have learned how to chain scan yourself and then refer back to this list. If
possible use the technique for secondaries as of the sixth act to accomplish the purpose.
WRITE DOWN THE NUMBER OF TIMES, WITH APPROXIMATE DATES, WHEN YOU
MIGHT HAVE SHIFTED CENTERS.
WRITE DOWN, BRIEFLY, THE SHOCK OR LOSS WHICH MIGHT HAVE
OCCASIONED THESE SHIFTS.
THE EIGHTH ACT
Done by yourself, without an auditor’s assistance, you may find this processing rather
heavy for you and again you may not, depending on how much life endowment you have.
But here is a technique which is relatively simple. It does things for you quickly. In the
fall of 1951 I developed this technique from one called chain- scanning, an effort to non pain in
wholesale quantities from a case, which did not work. This is lock- scanning. It does work.
Take your pencil and draw a line, a vertical line on the space to the right. Make the line
about five inches high.
Now, at the bottom of this line, mark it conception.
An inch above the bottom, draw a horizontal line and mark it birth.
At the top of the line, mark it present time.
Now just above birth, draw a VERY heavy horizontal bar about an inch long.
At intervals of every quarter or half an inch, irregularly, above the heavy bar, draw a
light line horizontally, half an inch long. There should be a dozen or two of these light lines.
Now mark the heavy horizontal bar PAINFUL INCIDENT.
Now mark the light bars above it, each one, LOCK. Here is a picture of a TIME
TRACK. That is the long vertical line. It is a way to plot your facsimiles, experiences in life,
against time. Actually these facsimiles can be sorted around at will by you. But stretching them
all out this way, they can be conceived as a track of time through which you have lived.
Now during this lifetime, on this TIME TRACK, various things happened to you.
Some were good and some were bad. Up to your teens you had the big goal of growth and
after that you had other goals.
This track is a continuous facsimile. But it is made up of a lot of facsimiles, particular
experiences which either stand out or remain hidden.
PAINFUL INCIDENT is any incident which was painful: a death, an operation, a big
failure, big enough to render you unconscious such as an accident. You’ve had many of these
but we are graphing just one to show you what happens to any of them.
LOCKS occur when you decide that the environment is similar to the PAINFUL
INCIDENT. LOCKS occur when an individual is tired or has had a minor failure in life which
reminds him, perhaps, of the major failure.
The technique known as LOCK SCANNING starts off from an early lock of the
painful incident but not the painful incident itself. One doesn’t pay any attention to that: it is
more or less inflated by the locks and can be handled as an incident just like any other
facsimile, which is to say, put aside at will. But sometimes the locks have to be cared for
before the PAINFUL INCIDENT slips away. Of course the painful incident itself can be run
by effort processing but that’s pretty heavy to do by yourself. Further, these locks have to be
A lock, then, can be treated by LOCK SCANNING.
To LOCK SCAN, one contacts an early lock on the track and goes rapidly or slowly
through all such similar incidents straight to present time. One does this many times and the
whole chain of locks becomes ineffective in influencing one.
Now more work with the pencil. Number the locks. Mark the first one above
PAINFUL INCIDENT, 1, the next 2, and so on.
When you start to lock scan, you will find an incident of the type required. You will
scan yourself through all such similar incidents to present time. Maybe the earliest one you
found on this scan was lock 8 and you scanned from there through the remaining locks to
On your next scan, try to find an earlier lock. The fist scan made an earlier one
accessible to you. This new start may be lock 5. Scan from lock 5 to present time through all
On your next scan you may find an even earlier lock. Scan from there to present time
through all similar incidents.
You do this scanning on any one chain until you are “extroverted” about it, which is to
say, until you find yourself in present time thinking about something else, your tone probably
If you continue to lock scan after you have “extroverted” you will “drop through” into
another chain on some other subject. This isn’t bad but you want to stop scanning when you
are extroverted. One more scan will find you scanning another chain.
It can happen that during scanning you hit what is known as a “boil- off.” This means
that you become groggy and seem to go to sleep. This is evidently caused by old
unconsciousness coming off. It hasn’t much benefit and apparently occurs when two facsimiles
conflict with each other. Actually you could lock scan yourself into a great deal of “boil- off.”
You could probably spend five hundred hours lock scanning this and that and boiling off.
That’s the slow road. THE OBJECT OF LOCK SCANNING IS NOT BOIL- OFF. BOIL- OFF
MEANS TOO MANY SECONDARIES, TOO MUCH GRIEF AND TOO MUCH REGRET.
IF YOU FIND YOURSELF BOILING OFF TOO MUCH (A LITTLE IS QUITE IN ORDER)
RUN REGRET AND BLAME AS IN A LATER SECTION.
This technique has to be known and understood if your processing is to go swiftly.
To show you what happens, here’s some work with an eraser. Take the graph you
made. Run your eraser from lock 7 to present time. Some of the lines lightened. Now run the
eraser from lock 5 to present time. Now from lock 1 to present time. Now pass the eraser from
1 up many times until the lines are almost erased. That is what happens to the facsimiles you
It is possible for you to “hang- up” in lock scanning. You start to run a chain of
incidents and find yourself “stuck” halfway to present time. Don’t flounder around or get
alarmed. You’ve hit a POSTULATE, a decision you have made not to get rid of something or
never to get over that incident. You’ve hit something you yourself thought which keeps you
from going on by the incident. Possibly it is regret. Feel the feeling of regret and you may
become unstuck. Or feel the feeling of blaming you or somebody else for the incident. Or
simply feel the counter- emotion, which will be covered in a moment and is a ripe subject for
scanning. It’s expected you’ll finish reading all this before you try it.
You can lock- scan at various speeds. You can scan so fast you don’t even know what
the incidents are. That’s MAXIMUM. Or you can scan so slowly that you know every word
said. That’s VERBAL. Or you can scan speeds in between. You may have been living with
somebody who insisted you hear every word they said and you may find yourself scanning at a
speed which might, facetiously, be called “turtle.” That is too slow. Most scanning is done at
ACCELERATED, which simply gives one a glimpse and concept of each successive incident.
Light emotion, counter- emotion, blame, phrases, people, anything can be scanned.
One of the most important things to scan is COUNTER EMOTION which was
mentioned belt not explained in act seven.
Have you ever walked into a room and known that people had been talking about you
or fighting just before your entrance? The “atmosphere” seems charged. When somebody
stands and bawls you out, do you feel the anger?
You have emotion which you discharge at people. You try to make them enthusiastic or
make them see the seriousness of something or you show them your contempt. Well, they
sense it not so much as words but as emotion.
A good orator is one who can throw out a great deal of emotion and so thrill or energize
an audience. The same thing could be done with mis- emotion, anger, grief, etc.
Mass hysteria is a well known phenomena. One person in a crowd is panicky. The
whole crowd becomes panicky without even knowing what is wrong. This is a built up mani-
festation of “herd instinct.” Man traveled in packs. It was safer to run or to charge instantly
than it was to dawdle around for verbal orders. Thus, mass emotion. This is a survival instinct.
More than that, emotion is the relay between thought and action. Emotion is the glue in
There is THOUGHT, EMOTION and EFFORT. Thought is one fringe of emotion.
Effort or physical action is the other fringe of emotion.
Efforts and counter efforts have been mentioned. Somebody hits you. That is a
counter- effort. You resist the blow. That is the effort. You use two kinds of effort, the effort to
remain at rest and the effort to remain in motion. There are two counter- efforts which you can
experience. One which moves against you and one which refuses to move. You can see this
very easily. Right now you are making a tiny effort to hold up this book while the
counter- effort of gravity is pulling it down. Every day the counter- effort of gravity makes a
person shrink during his waking hours, about three- quarters of an inch. At night he gains it
EMOTION and COUNTER- EMOTION are similar to EFFORT and
COUNTER- EFFORT. You have two goals with emotion. Thought, via emotion, seeks to stop
action, self or exterior. Thought, via emotion, seeks to start action, self or exterior. Anger, for
instance, seeks to stop exterior action. Fear seeks to start self- action to get away.
Now emotion is emotion whether it is yours or anothers. Live around a person who is
continually angry and you will begin to emotionally react toward that anger, for the anger seeks
to stop you whatever you do. Live around a person who is afraid and you will pick up their
fear and try to counteract it with emotion of your own, usually seeking to stop their flight. Or
you can get into the unhappy state of duplicating their counter- emotion with your emotion. You
do this whenever you agree with somebody. (The chief hole in light books which seek to win
friends and influence people. They also make people ill eventually because of agreement on
emotion.) Agree with an angry man and you’ll get angry too. Agree with an afraid man and
you’ll get afraid. Agree with a man in grief and you’ll feel your own grief. And so on as
covered in ARC in an earlier act.
You can feel your own emotion and the counter- emotion when examining a facsimile.
Or you can feel simply your own emotion. Or you can feel the counter- emotion only. You can
take what you want out of a facsimile. The trick is to take what is essentially aberrative out of
Now let’s see what happens to a counter- effort. This, let us say, is that pressure you
sometimes feel in your stomach. That’s just a facsimile of an old blow but it is sometimes very
uncomfortable. How do we get rid of that facsimile? Well, we can lock scan all the times it ever
bothered you. And we can lock scan it until it won’t bother you again. That’s one way. It’s
around a lot so we can run it as a service facsimile by effort (or an auditor can run it, which is
best when effort is in question). Or we can run a grief charge off grandfather’s death,
grandfather having had a stomach that bothered him. Or we can run off the counter- emotion.
We have a dozen ways to handle that stomach trouble.
Let’s see how the fastest way. That may be COUNTER EMOTION SCANNING.
If it’s a pressure or a pain, it is a facsimile of some pain that happened before and which
still exists “in memory” as a facsimile. Obviously it eludes our control of it or it wouldn’t hurt.
What makes it elude our own control of it? Well, after the blow was struck or whatever the
counter- effort was, somebody in the environment began to throw emotion at that very spot.
That is counter- emotion to you. The counter- emotion took over that facsimile of the
counter- effort and it is being held there by somebody else’s counter- emotion. That’s the way
the pressure or pain in the stomach may add up.
Don’t let’s try to get complicated about this. It’s simple. George has been hit in the
stomach by a baseball. Later his mother is sympathetic. That makes it a “good facsimile” so
George holds on to it. Then one day he gets married. His wife, a 1.5, begins to nag him about
eating. She gets angry at him. He wants sympathy instead so he holds up this facsimile for
sympathy and it doesn’t work. Her counter- emotion, anger, alters the baseball in the stomach
somatic and puts anger on it. Now George doesn’t control it any more. It is controlled by his
wife and her counter- emotion of anger. In processing, George starts to run his wife’s anger.
The old baseball facsimile turns on strongly and then goes away, never to return.
Where the emotion of others is concerned, an ache or a pain is fair game. But oddly
enough, one has to have loved or felt sympathy for another in order for that person’s counter
emotion to have much effect.
The cycle is then as serious a blow or a pain becomes a facsimile. Facsimile is used by
individual. Or isn’t handled well by him. Somebody close to him gets angry at him or fearful or
sad. That emotion (counter emotion) turns on the old blow or pain. If the counter- emotion is
heavy, not even effort processing can touch that old facsimile until the counter emotion is
removed from it.
The process is this: You have an ache or a pain. You can’t get rid of it simply by
identifying its source or other light means. You locate a time when somebody you loved threw
counter- emotion at that particular spot. You scan, by lock scanning, all the counter- emotion
thrown at that spot, whether it was sympathy or anger or fear. It doesn’t matter what you do
about your own emotion.
One of two things will happen: You will find the old facsimile and throw it away or you
will find counter- emotion from a great many people, run that off by scanning, and then
discover a big secondary which will have to be run or a PAINFUL INCIDENT which has to be
run by effort processing and is the service facsimile.
Whatever happens, you won’t go wrong by running any and all counter- emotion you
Every atmosphere in which you have lived has an “emotional quality.” You will find
that emotion doesn’t come from humans only. You will find times in your life when you ran
away from an atmosphere alone, not for any other reason than that you did not like the “feel” of
it. You will find you have avoided people, certain persons, certain groups, because you did not
like the counter- emotion. You may discover that that vague blur which you recalled as your
education was thrust out of sight just because you hated the school atmosphere, its
Primarily and foremost, you will find counter- emotion sitting around by tar bucketsful
whenever you failed. This is a mixture of counter- emotion and your own emotion or regret and
Counter- emotion has been thrown at you, your thoughts, specific parts of your body
and, in particular, that great or slight infirmity which you carry around.
Don’t be alarmed if, in scanning counter- emotion, some chronic pain begins to turn up
like a five- alarm fire. Don’t run for a water bucket. Just run more counter- emotion. It’s
doubtful if it will kill you for you see, you didn’t die before when you actually experienced it.
These are just facsimiles. If the real thing didn’t ruin you the facsimile probably can’t.
If you have a very weak heart, however, or some such infirmity which means razor- edge
between life and death, USE MEMORY ONLY FROM PRESENT TIME, DON’T LOCK
SCAN, ON COUNTER- EMOTION. In two years these processes in the hands of the public,
an often careless public, have never lost a pre- clear by reason of a weak heart or some such
hair- trigger infirmity but I must state that that doesn’t mean it can’t occur. See a doctor and an
auditor but don’t let the doctor talk you out of the auditor. Doctors always tell people with weak
hearts to slow down— that’s what’s wrong with the individual. He’s too slow already.
The assignment of the eighth act is first a thorough study of lock scanning. Then a
thorough study of counter- emotion. Then, finally, testing out lock scanning and
counter- emotion separately and then as one process. Do the following practice exercises.
LOCK SCAN EVERYTHING YOU HAVE EVER HEARD ABOUT THIS SCIENCE, GOOD
AND BAD, UNTIL YOU EXTROVERT ON THE SUBJECT.
LOCK SCAN EVERYTHING YOU HAVE EVER HEARD OR READ ABOUT L. RON
HUBBARD, GOOD OR BAD, UNTIL YOU EXTROVERT ON THE SUBJECT. IF YOU
HAVEN’T HEARD ANYTHING— FINE.
LOCK SCAN EVERY CONCLUSION OR POSTULATE YOU MAY HAVE MADE ABOUT
THE SCIENCE AND EVERY DECISION ABOUT IT.
IF YOU HAVE EVER BEEN AUDITED BEFORE BY OLD STANDARD PROCEDURE,
LOCK SCAN ALL SESSIONS OF THAT AUDITING.
IF YOU HAVE EVER BEEN AUDITED BEFORE, PICK UP EVERY TIME YOU AGREED
TO CONTACT AN INCIDENT.
IF YOU HAVE EVER ASKED TO BE AUDITED, LOCK SCAN EVERY TIME YOU
ASKED SOMEBODY TO AUDIT YOU.
When you have completed this, do this further exercise:
IF YOU HAVE EVER BEEN AUDITED, LOCK SCAN THE COUNTER- EMOTION OF
AND THE ENVIRONMENT. Get the way his emotion might have felt to you. If you haven’t
any contact on it, don’t worry. You didn’t like him.
PICK UP SOMEBODY IN YOUR LIFE OF WHOM YOU WERE FOND. LOCK SCAN ALL
THE TIMES WHEN YOU WERE SYMPATHETIC TO HIM OR HER. BUT
CONCENTRATE WITH YOUR SCANNING ON THE EMOTION FROM THAT PERSON
WHEN HE WAS IN TROUBLE OR IN PAIN. SCAN UNTIL YOU EXTROVERT ON THE
LOCK SCAN THROUGH ALL THE TIMES YOU HAVE TRIED TO HELP PEOPLE IN
MINOR WAYS. DO IT IN GENERAL WITHOUT ANY ATTENTION TO
NOW LOCK SCAN THROUGH ALL THE COUNTER EMOTION OF PEOPLE YOU
HAVE TRIED TO HELP. THEIR EMOTION TOWARDS YOU BEFORE AND AFTER THE
AID OR OFFER WAS EXTENDED.
These are exercises. The last action, however, is a very effective process. Now follow with
these effective processes:
GO TO THE SECOND ACT (ARC) WHERE YOU MADE A LIST OF PEOPLE WHO
ENFORCED AND INHIBITED AFFINITY, COMMUNICATION AND REALITY ON YOU.
LOCK SCAN THE COUNTER EMOTION OF THESE PEOPLE OF THE PRESENT AND
OF THE PAST IN EVERY INCIDENT OF ENFORCED AND INHIBITED ARC. CHECK
OFF EACH NAME WRITTEN IN THE SECOND ACT. SCAN UNTIL YOU EXTROVERT
ON EACH ONE.
When you have completed everything to this point and in particular, the scanning of all people
mentioned in the second act, continue with the following:
IN THE THIRD ACT YOU LISTED YOUR ATTITUDES TOWARD THE WORLD IN
WHICH YOU ARE LIVING. LOCK SCAN EACH AND EVERY TIME YOU MADE A
DECISION OR FELT THE ATTITUDE LISTED. TAKE EACH PHRASE YOU WROTE
AND SCAN EVERY TIME YOU FELT THAT WAY. THEN GO TO THE NEXT PHRASE.
WHEN YOU HAVE FINISHED THIS SCANNING,
SCAN OFF THE COUNTER- EMOTION IN ALL SUCH INCIDENTS.
WHEN YOU HAVE COMPLETED COUNTER EMOTION IN EVERY INCIDENT
RECALLED AROUND YOUR ATTITUDE GO TO THE BIG CHART.
START AT THE BOTTOM PHRASE OF COLUMN ONE OF THE BIG CHART. SCAN
EVERY TIME YOU FELT THAT WAY TOWARD THE WORLD, TOWARD YOURSELF,
TOWARD GROUPS, TOWARD ANIMALS, TOWARD THE SUPREME BEING.
(In this process most but not all phrases may have been applied.)
TAKE THE NEXT HIGHER PHRASE IN COLUMN ONE AND SCAN FOR ALL
TAKE THE NEXT HIGHER PHRASE IN COLUMN ONE AND SCAN FOR ALL
PROGRESS ALL THE WAY TO THE TOP OF COLUMN ONE, SCANNING EACH LINE
FOR EACH DYNAMIC.
START AT THE BOTTOM OF COLUMN TWO AND TAKE THE LOWEST PHRASE.
SCAN EACH TIME YOU TOLD YOURSELF OR THE WORLD THIS PHRASE. SCAN
FOR EVERY DYNAMIC.
TAKE THE NEXT HIGHER PHRASE IN COLUMN TWO AND SCAN FOR EACH
CONTINUE ON UP COLUMN TWO, SCANNING PHRASE IN TURN FOR EACH
SCAN EACH PHRASE FROM BOTTOM TO TOP IN EVERY COLUMN FOR EVERY
DYNAMIC UNTIL YOU HAVE SCANNED EVERY PHRASE ON THE BIG CHART.
THE NINTH ACT
In this act we handle emotion and counter- emotion with even more understanding.
The technical background of this is simplicity, but it is a simplicity which took twenty
years to discover. All things are complex when they are poorly understood. The evolution of
knowledge is toward simplicity, not complexity. An evolution toward complexity is an
evolution toward authoritarianism and pomposity—” you couldn’t possibly understand this,
therefore I, who pretend to, am important” is the attitude which mires learning. The only claim
science has on anyone’s attention or interest is the ability of a science to make phenomena
workable and align that phenomena for better understanding. A body of data which does not
accomplish this is not only not a science, it is a pretense and a humbuggery. Thus, if you are
working with any idea that the human mind “is too complex to understand” you are taking the
stand of those who failed. The problem of resolving the human mind was enormously difficult.
The solution of the operation and difficulties of the human mind is very simple.
We have three levels of operation. They are THOUGHT, EMOTION AND EFFORT.
Thought produces motion or action through the medium of emotion. Motion and effort in
general produce thought directly but also through the medium of emotion.
THOUGHT is without time. It is instantaneous. Emotion, where its band rests in
THOUGHT is also without TIME. EFFORT, ACTION CONTAIN TIME. A motion is a
change of position in space. A change of position requires time. The common partner of time
and space is motion. To have motion we have to have space and time. To have EMOTION we
do not need time. And there is no time what ever in thought. This is the theoretical background.
It doesn’t much matter whether it is clearly understood or not.
An individual is a collection of “memories” going back to his first appearance on earth.
In other words, he is the composite of all his facsimiles plus his impulse TO BE. Individuality
depends upon facsimiles. The very character and shape of the body, its genetic blueprint which
says whether one has one head or two, is a composite of facsimiles, according to theory and
The facsimiles which occasion behavior were initially counter- efforts. All facsimiles
contain counter- efforts. The body and personality are actually old counter- efforts which “I” has
turned into efforts. Thoughts are timeless. You can close your eyes and see, in thought, some
item which you well know is since vanished in the MEST universe. You have it as a facsimile
still. You can in thought, go back and be a small child. You cannot go back in body and change
the past. That you can go back in thought tells us that the thought must be right here in present
time too. In other words you as mind can handle yesterday as thought. Thought is timeless.
Thoughts are FILED by your concept of when they happened. As long as you know the time
tab of any thought, it is yours completely. When you do not know the time tab of a thought,
you no longer control it.
People are very fond of saying they have “bad memories.” They use this as a social
excuse and to avoid recalling failures. The memory by these processes repairs rapidly until a
person can recall things at will. His ability to recall things depends upon his ability to read the
time tabs on his facsimiles, so to speak. In other words, so long as he recalls accurately, he is
in control of the facsimile. When he cannot recall accurately, he is not in control of the
At the Foundation we repair psychotics, the despair of thousands of years of civilized
man, in a relatively short period of time. For two thousand years they have been giving
psychotics shocks, restraints and operations— there has been no change. Freud alone suggested
a change but he didn’t have the reason why nor the effectiveness and today, in major
institutions, these antique methods pass for “modern” treatment. Out of our present body of
knowledge we are restoring the sanity and effectiveness of psychotics, a thing which has never
before been done with regularity or a guarantee of success. We even restore psychotics who
have been given “modern” treatments, shock and the rest of it. How is this done ?
Handle it this way: an insane person cannot reason or control himself. That means he
cannot handle his facsimiles. By a series of precise steps the auditor gives the psychotic back
the control of the Facsimiles. These steps are as follows:
1. By mimicry (a form of communication), tactile (the most direct communication) and by
general ARC we get the psychotic into communication with one human being, the
auditor. This is sometimes long and difficult and is the most arduous step. It can be
assisted by giving the psychotic MEST —time and space and removing restraints.
2. The auditor then works to get the psychotic into contact with present time. He calls
attention to objects and the general environment until the psychotic sees that these are
real. When the auditor knows the psychotic knows the reality of beds and walls, he
turns attention to the psychotic himself as a being. He establishes the fact with the
psychotic that the psychotic controls his own hands and feet and body.
3. At this stage the auditor may introduce the psychotic into association with other people
and a wider environment. This is again more present time. The auditor NEVER evalu-
ates anything for the psychotic. The psychotic is insane because of too much
EVALUATION by others and will slump if somebody starts thinking for him again.
4. The next step is to get the psychotic to evaluate something. This may be as mild as
whether or not hamburgers are good to eat. The psychotic decides on an evaluation.
Then many evaluations in present time.
5. Now the psychotic is asked to make minor decisions in present time plus action on
those decisions. This includes getting him to decide to accept something and to decide
to throw something away, for the handling of MEST is not unlike the handling of
thoughts and to a psychotic thoughts are as solid as MEST.
6. The next step is to get the psychotic to recall something no matter how general about his
past. He is asked to recall things until he strikes an incident he REALLY KNOWS IS
REAL. It is real to him. It is a real memory. This is another up point in his tone as each
of these steps listed are. But it is the big point. He has recognized as real one of his
facsimiles. He isn’t coaxed into admitting it is real. He recalls and knows that it really
happened. He is then made to recall many such incidents. HE IS NEVER
INVALIDATED OR ARGUED WITH ABOUT WHAT HE THINKS IS REAL. THE
AUDITOR SIMPLY IGNORES THE HALLUCINATIONS AND ACCEPTS A REAL
MEMORY AT LAST.
7. The succeeding step is to get the psychotic to recall a past evaluation, a time when he
made up his mind about the character or quality of something. The specific moment of
evaluation is attained. Then the psychotic is made to recall a decision he has made in the
past. Many evaluations and decisions are thus recalled.
8. The psychotic is now questioned about the times he has helped people. If possible
heavy failures are avoided. When he has recalled times when he has helped people and
knows each incident recalled is real and actually happened, one goes to the next step.
9. The auditor now tries to locate the decision, the exact instant, with all perceptions
possible, when the psychotic decided to go crazy. There may be many such decisions.
These are recalled many times each.
10. The psychotic is now questioned on the subject of departed or failed relatives or friends
until one is discovered who went mad. This is the location of a goal continuation for
11. Now the psychotic is worked on the subject of sympathy, what he has had to do to get
sympathy, what sympathy he has given others. Probably a grief charge will come into
view and can be run.
The individual about step eight is no longer classifiable as very psychotic, by step ten
he is at worst neurotic. And he can be processed by counter- emotion, regret and other
This is outlined to give you some sort of an idea of what psychosis is and how sanity is
restored. It is the condition of being unable to handle one’s facsimiles. Sanity is restored by
restoring an individual’s ability, little by little, to handle his facsimiles.
But by what mechanism does an individual become unable to handle his memories?
There are several answers but the main one is COUNTER- EMOTION.
Counter- Emotion is felt as the “atmosphere” around a person or place. Ask anyone to
recall the “feel” of the “atmosphere” of an area or a person and he can reexperience it at least in
Emotion according to present theory, can be laid down by anyone against anyone. The
emotions of A can be infiltrated into the facsimiles of G. The thoughts of A, similarly, can be
infiltrated into the thoughts of B but so far as we are concerned at this writing, the mechanisms
of thought and counter- thought are not well known. Emotion and counter emotion are easily
How does one human being control another? High on the tone scale it is by letting the
individual control himself as thoroughly as possible. Below 2.0, in the mis- emotion band, a
human being seeks to control or destroy another by COUNTER- EMOTION and
The atmosphere surrounding a mis- emotion person is easily sensed. When one
advances a facsimile to a mis- emotion person, mis- emotion is immediately thrown into that
facsimile. Effort is transferred by physical contact. Emotion is simply transferred by anger,
fear, argument, sympathy, etc. from a mis- emotion person into a facsimile of another. You
may have noticed how you become less sure of yourself or uneasy around people who are
embarrassed or uneasy or afraid. This is a simple mechanism. You are getting your facsimiles
“colored” by a foreign emotion.
Every facsimile you advance, with argument or persuasion, toward a mis- emotional
person gets counter- emotion thrown into it. THAT COUNTER- EMOTION TAKES YOUR
FACSIMILE OUT OF YOUR OWN CONTROL AND PUTS IT INTO THE CONTROL OF
THE MIS- EMOTIONAL PERSON.
Nothing is easier to prove. You have noticed probably, in lock scanning, that certain
persons were “occluded” or that the whole track was occluded. That occluded person was mis-
emotional. The facsimiles you displayed around that person have their emotion on them, not
yours. Your thought, then, has ceased to control such facsimiles. They do not come to view
when called for by you. They are “occluded.” The facsimiles aren’t owned by you any longer
but by the misemotional person.
One by one your facsimiles can be taken out of your control by mis- emotional persons.
The end result is no further ownership of your facsimiles or you. The end result is control by
the environment, not self control, mis- emotion instead of self- confidence. Doubt and fear of
acting. In short, reactions such as those which appear along the lower band of the big chart.
Slowed reaction time and illnesses and chronic pains result from these facsimiles which are no
longer under your control. Mis- emotion has swamped them, occluded them and so they can
There is another, even simpler subject in COUNTER THOUGHT. You think one
thing, somebody else thinks another. Their thought is counter to your thought. Live awhile
around somebody low on the scale and your thoughts get swamped by counter- thought. This is
rehabilitated simply by running the ideas of another and the moment they expressed them.
Counter- emotion and counter- thought can become sufficiently serious so as to give you
the illusion of having the facsimiles of another. This is a last extreme. This is hallucination.
Take a person who is normally occluded in your memory. Think back to a time when
this person told you a story or an incident. You may have no view of that person telling the
story but instead, a view of the activity in the story. This is a dub- in occasioned by their
mis- emotion. The end product of this is to have the time track of some mis- emotional person
with fake perceptions upon it. This is hallucination complete.
A mis- emotional person can become occluded not only in recall but also in present time.
Such a person blurs out. When they come into the room, one has the illusion of the light failing
We all have the ambition to see a bright world. The thing which makes it unbright, in
the main, is the mis- emotion we carry on our facsimile from the atmospheres of mis- emotion in
which we have dwelt.
Here is an exercise:
GO TO A PLACE ON THE TRACK WHERE THERE IS AN OCCLUSION. NOW TRY TO
FEEL THE MISEMOTION WHICH MIGHT BE IN THE ATMOSPHERE. EXPERIENCE
THIS COUNTER- EMOTION BY RUNNING THROUGH THE INCIDENT SWIFTLY
A pain might have turned on. If so, continue to run this counter- emotion until the pain
is gone. You probably are not running the full length of the incident.
New data appeared to you from that occluded area. Your own thoughts and feelings in
the area began to brighten. You knew what you were thinking about and saying after you had
run it a few times. This exercise is the one necessary to restore recall perception on occluded
people and areas.
GO TO A PLACE IN RECALL WHERE A NORMALLY OCCLUDED PERSON IS
TELLING YOU A STORY OR AN INCIDENT. FIND AN AREA WHERE YOU ARE
GETTING THE PICTURE OF THE STORY, NOT THE PICTURE OF THE PERSON
TELLING IT. RUN THE COUNTER- EMOTION OF THE PICTURE SEVERAL TIMES
UNTIL YOU GET A VIEW OF THE PERSON TELLING YOU THE INCIDENT.
This is how people get occluded. A mis- emotional person specializes in telling people
what to think and what the people think. Occlusion of childhood and hallucinatory pictures of
childhood are occasioned by telling the child what happened to him often and in detail. This
knocks out the facsimile of the child and substitutes either occlusion or a false picture.
Run the mis- emotion or any counter- emotion of times when you were told what had
happened to you. Run these until the occlusion vanishes or the picture goes away. Don’t neces-
sarily go back to the incident being talked about.
LIST FIVE PEOPLE WHO ARE OCCLUDED ON YOUR TRACK.
RUN THE ATMOSPHERE AROUND THESE OCCLUSIONS UNTIL EACH ONE
APPEARS IN VIEW. IF PICTURES OF WHAT THEY SAY TURN UP, RUN THE
PICTURES UNTIL THE PERSON TURNS UP INSTEAD.

Let us now consider another phenomena about emotion. This is the EMOTIONAL
On the tone scale you will find a difference of height between various emotions and
mis- emotions. The EMOTIONAL CURVE is the drop or rise from one level of emotion to
Can you find a time when you were happy and suddenly became sad ?
This is easy. Experience or get a concept of how you would feel if you were happy and
then how you would feel if you became sad. Then experience the change from happiness to
sadness. Now find a situation where you were happy and became sad. RUN THIS CURVE.
Who was present ? Run the drop in tone as your own emotion. Then run the drop in
tone as counter- emotion, the atmosphere change.
Run the emotional curve from happiness to sadness several times until you have full
recovery on your own ideas and counter- thought. What did you think? What did the other say .
There are two emotional curves. One is the emotional curve you experience directly in
yourself. The other is the counter emotional curve where you feel a change in tone in the
This is an auditor tool and is used to locate the SERVICE FACSIMILE of the pre- clear.
THE TENTH ACT
For the auditor, if you are being audited part time or full time, the tenth act is the
running out by THOUGHT, EFFORT and EMOTION of the SERVICE FACSIMILE. He will
discover it from the data you have already written in this book, by looking you over for
mal- function and by running EMOTIONAL CURVES until you run into the front end of the
An individual with a very thorough knowledge from additional texts on this science
might be able to run the service facsimile itself. But several things militate against it, the first of
them being that the pre- clear will try to run it out of valence, (as somebody else), the second,
that he considers it valuable and so doesn’t want to lose it, the third being that it takes a
pre- clear so very much longer to run his own service facsimile than it takes an auditor.
THE ELEVENTH ACT
This entire act is addressed to the subject of SYMPATHY.
Probably you could kill a man with sympathy. It has been done. There are three levels
of healing: the first is to do something efficient about the condition, the next, if the first can’t be
done, is to make the patient comfortable, the third, if he can’t be made comfortable, is to give
him sympathy. That is in accordance with old medical practice. However, sympathy is a
terrible thing but is considered to be a very valuable thing.
The survival value of sympathy is this: When an individual is hurt or immobilized, he
cannot fend for himself, get himself good, defend himself. If he is to survive he must count
upon another or others to care for him. His bid for such care is the enlistment of the sympathy
of others. This is practical. The cheerful good- fellowship of the weak, crippled or ill is part of
this mechanism. If men weren’t sympathetic, none of us would be alive.
The non- survival value of sympathy is this: An individual fails in some activity or effort
to help. He then considers himself incapable of surviving by himself. Even though he isn’t sick
actually he makes a bid for sympathy. When a person, not actually ill or immobilized by injury,
is making a bid for sympathy, he considers that he has failed so badly that he cannot by himself
continue on in life. His self- confidence is undermined. He is not able to handle himself well.
Counter emotion and counter- thought have garbled his facsimiles He feels he has to have
sympathy to get along. And he displays an illness or disability to gain sympathy. This is
mechanical and is not to be disparaged: the person is actually in need of help. And almost every
human being is prone to this error. Almost every one will make a bid for sympathy by holding
out some old facsimile. A psychosomatic illness is at once an explanation of failure and a bid
for sympathy. That does not make the sympathy, when received, less sweet. And it does not
make the ill any less painful.
One is peculiarly liable to sympathy bids around his parents and family. The worst case
an auditor can encounter is one which wants auditing only for the auditor’s sympathy and
wants to retain the SERVICE FACSIMILE because it is a sympathy source. The answer to this
is to get the pre- clear far enough up the tone scale so that he is sufficiently self- confident not to
need any sympathy. Only then, in some cases, will the SERVICE FACSIMILE (the technical
term for the facsimile the pre- clear uses to gain sympathy) surrender to auditing.
The purpose of this act is to pick up sympathy facsimiles.
In other works on this science you will find in detail the role of self- determinism. We
are all self- determined, natively. NOTHING which we do is beyond self- determined action.
When you made a decision, it is MADE.
A later part of this processing deals thoroughly with this.
Nobody ever became ill without wanting to be ill at some earlier moment in his life.
Here is a polio case, in bed two years. She became ill because she felt sorry for another little
girl who got polio and so decided to get it herself. It was a clear- cut decision, followed by two
years in bed.
If you doubt that you ever wished to be ill, what about school? Didn’t you ever beg off
by a plaint of being sick? How many times have you done this?
SCAN THROUGH EACH AND EVERY TIME YOU DECIDED TO GET SICK.
SCAN THROUGH ALL THE REASONS YOU DECIDED TO BE ILL.
When you have completed this exercise until you have extroverted on the subject, begin
on the following:
LOCATE A MOMENT WHEN YOU FELT SYMPATHY FOR SOMETHING. SCAN
THROUGH THIS MOMENT OVER AND OVER UNTIL IT IS DE- SENSITIZED.
SCAN NOW THE COUNTER- EMOTION TO YOUR SYMPATHY IN THAT SAME
SCAN THE SYMPATHETIC THOUGHT IN THAT INCIDENT.
SCAN THE COUNTER- THOUGHT IN THAT INCIDENT IF ANY.
These four steps are a pattern for single incidents. After you have scanned just so many
of these incidents you will find that sympathy all up and down the track seems to be resolving.
On the same subject, take up the following people.
SCAN EVERY INCIDENT YOU CAN FIND CONTAINING SYMPATHY BY YOU FOR
THEM ON THE ABOVE PATTERN.
(Omit any you did not have.)
MOTHER. FATHER. GUARDIAN. FATHER’S GRANDMOTHER. FATHER’S MOTHER.
FATHER’S GRANDFATHER. FATHER’S FATHER. MOTHER’S GRANDMOTHER.
MOTHER’S MOTHER. MOTHER’S GRANDFATHER. MOTHER’S FATHER. AUNTS.
GREAT AUNTS. UNCLES. GREAT UNCLES. PLAYMATES. MARITAL PARTNERS.
TEACHERS. DOGS. CATS. HORSES. GOLDFISH. CHILDREN. DOLLS. TOYS.
ANIMALS. BIRDS. POSSESSIONS. SCENES. HOUSES. BEDS.
SCAN NOW THE FOLLOWING STORY CHARACTERS FOR SYMPATHY OR OTHER
EMOTION. (Omit any you were not acquainted with but be sure you didn’t know them). TINY
TIM. LITTLE ORPHAN ANNIE. ANY EUGENE FIELD POEM. ANGELS. LITTLE NEL.
ANY OTHER STORY CHARACTER.
Now we will reverse the process.
SCAN ANY SYMPATHY GIVEN YOU BY ANY OF THE LIST OF RELATIVES AND
PEOPLE ABOVE. SCAN EACH INCIDENT IN DETAIL. THE INCIDENT MAY INCLUDE
SICKNESS, IF SO SCAN IT UNTIL ANY SYMPTOMS YOU PICK UP VANISH AGAIN.
(By scanning emotion and counter- emotion facsimiles drop off.)
SCAN SELECTIVELY ON SYMPATHY AND COUNTER- EMOTION, THE FOLLOWING:
YOURSELF. 1 OR YOUR EYES. FOR YOUR MOUTH. FOR YOUR EARS. FOR YOUR
HEAD. FOR YOUR ARMS. FOR YOUR HANDS. FOR YOUR INTERNAL ORGANS.
FOR YOUR STOMACH. FOR YOUR LEGS. FOR YOUR FEET. FOR YOUR BACK. FOR
THE GENITALS. FOR YOUR LIFE.
SCAN SYMPATHY AND COUNTER- EMOTION FOR EACH OF THE FOLLOWING:
EVERY GROUP. EVERY STATE OR NATION. EVERY POPULATION. I OR MAN IN
GENERAL. FOR THE WORLD.
SCAN SYMPATHY AND COUNTER- EMOTION FOR EACH OF THE FOLLOWING:
TREES. CHRISTMAS TREES. ANY LIFE FORM. THE SUPREME BEING.
Now review all this analytically. You will discover the following. Before you felt
sympathy, you offended in some way. You did something. Then you were sorry for it. This
offense may have taken place years before your sympathy came about or only minutes. This is
the emotional curve of sympathy. It goes from antagonism or anger down to sympathy.
You know now where and on what dynamic you felt the greatest sympathy. Was it for
mother? All right? let’s find out where we first offended mother, hurt her in fact.
SCAN EVERY SUBJECT OF SYMPATHY EARLY ENOUGH TO FIND WHERE YOU
OFFENDED. SCAN OUT THE OFFENSE. IF IT DOESN’T COME CLEAR, SCAN
REGRET AS AN EMOTION UNTIL IT DOES COME CLEAR. IF YOU ENCOUNTER A
BRIEF CHARGE RUN IT AS A STRAIGHT INCIDENT AS CONTAINED IN AN
LIST NOW THE CHIEF OBJECTS OF SYMPATHY.
CHECK EACH ONE AGAIN AND SCAN IT AGAIN.
This used to be called a “guilt complex.” This process undoes them.

THE THIRTEENTH ACT
The subject of blame and regret is an interesting one. Blame of self and blame of others
produce interesting results in recalls. Facsimiles can become clouded with blame and regret.
This is the subject of CAUSE and EFFECT.
An individual natively desires to be cause. He tries not to become a bad effect.
You try to help people and people try to help you because you and they want to be
CAUSE. When something bad happens, neither one wishes to be cause.
You want to be an effect. Then you find the effect bad. You try not to be an effect. And
then you blame something or somebody.
Blaming yourself or others for being a cause is to deny yourself full control of your
facsimiles. You say somebody caused something. You make them RESPONSIBLE. They are
then CAUSE. This is a powerful position. It ends up with your having given them control over
a facsimile or many facsimiles. If you blame somebody hard enough and long enough you have
kept on electing them as CAUSE until they are much more powerful than yourself.
If you blame your mother, for instance, you make your mother CAUSE and must then
obey her. And your facsimiles relating to her or to your whole life are out of your control. If
you blame yourself, this is an admitted failure and again you have facsimiles out of control.
You blame somebody, you elect them as cause. This makes you an effect of the cause.
As an effect you are thus placed well down the tone scale.
You desire to be an effect in some quarter and thereafter you may continue to be an
effect and will go down the scale to a point where you may develop psychosomatic ills.
There are certain main spheres where one wishes to be an effect. Here we have the
importance of aberration on the second dynamic, SEXY You wish to have the pleasure of sex.
This is yourself electing yourself an an effect. As an effect you can then be given pain on the
You wish to be pleasantly an effect in eating. You elect yourself an effect. You can
thereafter be effected by pain in the food department. The basis of ulcers or any stomach
trouble including constipation is the original desire to eat.
You wish to be amused and entertained. Thus amusement channels, sight, sound,
rhythm, can become aberrated by pain.
It is natural law that one cannot be aberrated without one’s own consent. One must
wish to be an effect before he can become an effect. If he becomes an effect then he can later
become “effected” unpleasantly by counter- efforts.
If you want to be an effect of your marital or sexual partner, or any sexual act, you
open the door to being an unpleasant effect.
Examine the column of the big chart between CAUSE and EFFECT. This is a gradient
scale of causes and effects.
Freud was right in selecting sex as being very aberrative. Before him thousands of
years of mystics knew they had to abstain from material or physical pleasures and sex in order
to remain high and saintly. They did not know the mechanism at work. We now do. The
moment they wanted to be an effect, they could become, in that channel, an unpleasant as well
as a pleasant effect and so go down the tone scale.
There are several conditions relating to this. One is the desire not to be a cause. One is
the desire not to be an effect. One is the desire to prevent something or somebody else from
being a cause. One is the desire to prevent somebody or something else from being an effect.
In sex one may not desire to be the cause of children. This would be for either a man or
a woman. Children, in this society, can be embarrassing or expensive. One desires at the same
time to cause a sexual partner pleasure. Here is desire not to be a cause fighting with the desire
to be a cause. The result is conflict, aberration, impotence, sex punishment and irregular
In sex, again, one desires greatly to be an effect for the sake of pleasure. One wishes to
experience the pleasure of sex. He does not want to experience the pain of childbirth for
himself or his partner nor does he wish the effect of disease. Nor does he wish to be the effect
of public antagonism toward sexual practice. Thus his desire to be effect comes in conflict with
his desire not to be effect and the result is aberration, impotence, glandular interruption, marital
breakdowns, divorces, suicide and sudden death.
In food, cause and effect work similarly to sex. One wishes to be pleasantly effected by
the flavor of substance of food. He may not want to have the effect of the work he has to do to
eat or the propitiation he has to give to eat. He wants to be cause. He is running a
carbon- oxygen engine which has to have the effect of food. People low on the tone scale use
this sure route to making a person into an effect by denying food or forcing people to eat food.
The society uses this effect to get work done.
Low scale mothers are very strict with their children about food. This is a sure method
of control. By forcing the child to be a non- self- determined effect about food, the mother can
control the child in many other ways. All low scale control is done by forcing the individual to
be an effect where the individual naturally has to be an effect. Where a naturally desired effect
can be enforced by command, the enforcer can gain a wide control simply by continual
demonstration that the target individual is an effect, not a cause.
The sexual sphere is peculiarly liable to cause and effect action became of the
communication. Tactile is the most direct method of sensory communication. It is much more
effective than talk. A close communication with a low scale person brings down as well the
affinity and the reality levels. If a sexual partner is demanding or insatiable, that partner elects
the other into being an unwilling came and denies his right to the effect and then makes ruin of
a personality. An individual aberrated enough about sex will do strange things to be a cause or
an effect. He will substitute punishment for sex. He will pervert others.
Homosexuality comes from this manifestation and from the manifestation of life
continuation for others. A boy whose mother is dominant will try to continue her life from any
failure she has. A girl whose father is dominant will try to continue his life from any failure he
has. The mother or the father were cause in the child’s eyes. The child elected himself
successor to cause. Break this life continuum concept by running sympathy and grief for the
dominant parent and then run off the desires to be an effect and their failures and the
homosexual is rehabilitated. Homosexuality is about 1.1 on the tone scale. So is general
The facsimiles of an individual can become considerably scrambled by masturbation.
Practically all the ape family and Man masturbate. Masturbation is a prohibition result. It
couldn’t drive anyone crazy. But it can make the individual pull old sex facsimiles into present
time for self- stimulation and opens the door for him to desire facsimiles to be in present time.
After awhile he will be pulling pain facsimiles into present time.

As you have read here before and as you have come to suspect in your processing, your
own decisions and evaluations are the most important items in the entire process.
What you decide is LAW to you. What you evaluate is evaluation to you.
SELF- CONFIDENCE is nothing more than belief in one’s ability to decide and in one’s
MOST PEOPLE THINK THEY HAVE UNCONSCIOUS MINDS OR
BACKGROUNDS OF MOTIVATION SIMPLY BECAUSE THEY HAVE REFUSED THEIR
OWN POWER TO DECIDE.
Negation of decision, refusal of decision, letting others decide are the most powerful
sources of aberration. They apply to any and all subjects.
This section is devoted to picking up each and every postulate you can now reach in
your whole lifetime. A postulate is a decision you make to yourself or to others. You make
one, then afterwards conditions change and you make a second one. This makes the first one
wrong. You make a postulate as cause and then, by having lived through some instants of time,
become an effect of your own cause.
A computer could not work if you kept leaving its totals on the calculator for the next
problem. That is what you do with decisions. They have to be made. Sweep them up before
making more. It is a new method of thinking and one that keeps you happy. No need to be
afraid of making decisions. Simply sweep up old decisions. You make New Year’s resolu-
tions. And you make them into the teeth of old resolutions and you tell yourself you are
weak- willed. You aren’t weak willed, you are simply obeying yourself as of yesterday.
Emotion and effort cover up these postulates. They should be free and clear by now and
indeed should blow at a glance. There are two parts to every postulate. There is the evaluation
of data and the decision itself.
When you pick up an old decision, also pick up the reason you made it. They “blow”

THE FOURTEENTH ACT
First review the earlier data about control centers. Then do the following:
WRITE DOWN EVERY TIME YOU CONSIDERED YOURSELF TO HAVE HAD A MAJOR
RUN EACH SINGLE INCIDENT CONSECUTIVELY FROM THE MOMENT YOU
PLANNED THE ACTION THROUGH THE MOMENT YOU REALIZED YOU HAD
FAILED THROUGH THE POSSIBLE RESULTING ILLNESS AND TO THE MOMENT
WHEN YOU FELT CHEERFUL AGAIN. GO THROUGH EACH INCIDENT IN
COMPLETE DETAILS WITH COUNTER- THOUGHT, COUNTER- EMOTION AND
BLAME AND REGRET WITH ALL AVAILABLE PERCEPTICS UNTIL THE ENTIRE
INCIDENT IS IN TONE 4.0. THAT TONE IS LAUGHTER. DO NOT QUIT IN
BOREDOM: THATS ONLY PART WAY THERE.
SCAN OFF ALL LOCKS FROM EACH FAILURE.
Now the next step.
RUN EVERY DEATH OF EVERYONE YOU HAVE KNOWN IN THIS LIFETIME. RUN
REGRET AND BLAME OF SELF OR OTHERS UNTIL THE DEATH SHOWS UP IN
COMPLETE DETAIL. RUN THE DEATH COMPLETELY OUT. IF YOU HAVE DIFFI-
CULTY RUN EVERY TIME YOU OFFENDED THE DEAD PERSON, EVERY TIME YOU
FELT SYMPATHY FOR THE DEAD PERSON UNTIL THE INCIDENT IS IN FULL
VIEW. THEN RUN IT COMPLETELY. REMEMBER TO FIND AND RUN ANY
DECISION TO TRY TO MAKE THIS PERSON LIVE OR ANY REGRET THAT YOU
DIDN’T MAKE THIS PERSON LIVE.
RUN OFF THE DEATH OF EVERY PET SIMILARLY TO PEOPLE.
This should rehabilitate all control centers for this lifetime.
THE FIFTEENTH ACT
This is a review act and is very necessary to a completion of processing.
Turn back to the beginning of the book and read all the text up to the processing
section. That text will mean a great deal more to you now than it did before.
NOW TAKE THE SECOND ACT AND REVIEW EVERYTHING YOU DID IN IT.
THERE WILL BE MUCH MORE DATA FOR IT AND MUCH MORE UNDERSTANDING.
TAKE EACH ACT CONSECUTIVELY AND DO THE COMPLETE ACT AGAIN.
READ THE TEXTS FOR THE ACTS AND REPEAT ALL THE EXERCISES. NEW DATA
WILL BE FOUND ALL UP AND DOWN THE LINE.
WHEN YOU REACH THIS POINT AGAIN, AFTER THE COMPLETE REVIEW,
FILL OUT THE FOLLOWING. IT MAY HELP OTHERS. THEN MAIL IT.

Gentlemen: I have completed the processing handbook. My comments on the book are
My suggestions for its improvement are as follows:
My current state of health (physical) was as follows before I used this book.
My state of health is now:
My chronic complaint was and (has been) (has not been) alleviated.
My current feeling of well being is as follows:
I was (greatly assisted by) (poorly assisted by) (did not use) MARK OUT TWO an
auditor in my processing. (If an auditor was used) The name and address of my auditor is as
(You have my permission) (You do not have my permission) to use my case in
publications. MARK OUT ONE. Date begun: Date ended: My address is:
ACCESSIBILITY. The state of being willing to be processed (technical sense in this science).
The state of being willing to have interpersonal relations (social sense). For the individual
himself, accessibility with self means whether or not an individual can recontact his past
experiences or data. A man with a “bad memory” (interposed blocks between control center and
facsimiles) has memories which are not accessible to him.
ACT. A stage of processing. Applies solely to the particular process in use at a certain case
ASSESSMENT. An inventory, an examination, a calculation or evaluation of a case.
ASSISTS. The straight perception by perception running over and over of an incident until it is
desensitized as a facsimile and cannot affect the pre- clear. The assist is used immediately after
accidents or operations. It takes away shock and most of the harmful effects of the incident and
promotes healing. It is done by starting the individual at the beginning of the incident, with the
first awareness of the incident, just as though the pre- clear were living it all the way through
again with full perception of sight, sound, etc., as nearly as they can be obtained. An assist
run, for instance, immediately after a dental operation takes all the shock out of the operation.
One concludes an assist by picking up the auditing as another incident and running through the
auditing and the decision to be audited. An assist saves lives and materially speeds healing.
AUDITOR. One who listens and computes. A technician of this science.
BROKEN. Slang used in the wise of “breaking a case,” meaning that one breaks the hold of
the pre- clear on a nonsurvival facsimile. Used in greater or lesser magnitude such as “breaking
a circuit” or “breaking into a chain” or “breaking a computation.” Never breaking the pre- clear
or his spirit, but breaking what is breaking the pre- clear.
CENTER OF CONTROL. The awareness of awareness unit of the mind. This is not part of the
brain but part of the mind, the brain being physiological. The mind has two control centers
possible, by definition, the right and the left. One is an actual, genetic control center, the other
is a subcontrol- center subservient to the control center.
CLEAR (verb). The act of desensitizing or releasing a thought impression or a series of
impressions or observations in the past, or a postulate, an emotion, an effort or an entire
facsimile. The pre- clear either releases his hold on the facsimile (memory) or the facsimile itself
is desensitized. The word is taken from electronic computers or common office adding
machines and describes an action similar to clearing past computations from the machine.
CLEAR (noun). A much misunderstood state of being. The word has been used before with
other meanings. It has been mistaken as an absolute. It is still used. It is used here as
electronics slang and can apply to a chain, an incident or a computation.
COMPUTING PSYCHOTIC. One who is running on a circuit, a circuit being a
pseudo- personality out of a facsimile strong enough to dictate to the individual and BE the
DRAMATIZING PSYCHOTIC. One who dramatizes one type of facsimile only.
DYNAMICS. The central drives of an individual. They are numbered from one to eight as
follows: 1. Self survival; 2. Survival through children (includes sexual act); 3. Survival by
groups including social and political as well as commercial; 4. Survival through Mankind as a
whole; 5. Survival through Life including any species, vegetable or animal; (I. Survival
through MEST; 7. Survival through theta or the static of itself; 8. (Written as infinity). Survival
through a Supreme Being. Each individual is surviving for all eight.
EFFORT. The physical force manifestation of motion. A sharp effort against an individual
produces pain. A strenuous effort produces discomfort. Effort can be recalled and re-
experienced by the pre- clear. No pre- clear below 2.5 should be called upon to use effort as
such as he is incapable of handling it and will stick in it. The essential part of a painful facsimile
is its effort, not its perceptions.
EMOTION. The catalyst used by the control center to monitor physical action. The relay
system, via glands, interposed between “I” and self and, by thought, others. The main
emotions are happiness in which one has confidence and enjoyment in his goals and a belief in
his control of environment; boredom, in which one has lost confidence and direction but is not
defeated; antagonism wherein one feels his control threatened; anger wherein one seeks to
destroy that which threatens and seeks without good direction beyond destruction; covert
hostility wherein one seeks to destroy while reassuring his target that he is not so seeking; fear
wherein one is catalyzed to flee; grief in which one recognizes loss; apathy in which one
accepts failure on all dynamics and pretends death. Other emotions are a volume or lack of
volume of those named. Shame o r embarrassment are emotions peculiar to groups or
interpersonal relations and are on a level with grief, denoting loss of position in a group.
Emotion is the glandular system parallel of motion and each emotion reflects action to gain or
lose to motion. At a high level one is sending back motion, at a mid level one is holding
motion, at a lower level, motion is sweeping through and over one.
ENVIRONMENT. The surroundings of the pre- clear from moment to moment in particular or
in general, including people, pets, mechanical objects, weather, culture, clothing or the
Supreme Being. Anything he perceives or believes he perceives. The objective environment is
the environment everyone agrees is there. The subjective environment is the environment the
individual himself believes is there. They may not agree.
FACSIMILES. A facsimile is a memory recording for a finite period of time. It is considered
that memory is a static without wave length, weight, mass or position in space (in other words,
a true static) which yet receives the impression of time, space, energy and matter. A careful
examination of the phenomena of thought and the behavior of the human mind lead one to this
conclusion. The conclusion is itself a postulate used because it is extremely useful and
workable. This is a point of echelon in research, that a facsimile can be so described. The
description is mathematical and an abstract and may or may not be actual. When a thought
recording is so regarded, the problems of the mind rapidly resolve. Facsimiles are said to be
“stored.” They act upon the physical universe switchboard called the brain and nervous and
glandular system to monitor action. They appear to have motion and weight only because
motion and weight are recorded into them. They are not stored in the cells. They impinge upon
the cells. Proof of this matter rests in the fact that an energy which became a facsimile a long
time ago can be re- contacted and is found to be violent on the contact. Pain is stored as a
facsimile. Old pain can be re- contacted. Old pain, in facsimile form, old emotion in facsimile
form, can reimpose itself on present time in such a wise as to deform or other vise physically
affect the body. You can go back to the last time you hurt yourself and find there and
re- experience the pain of that hurt, unless you are very occluded. You can recover efforts and
exertions you have made or which have been made against you in the past. Yet the cells
themselves, which have finite life, are long since replaced although the body goes on. Hence
the facsimile theory. The word facsimile is used as bluntly as one uses it in connection with a
drawing of a box top instead of the actual box top. It means a similar article rather than the
article itself. You can recall a memory picture of an elephant or a photograph. The elephant and
the photograph are no longer present. A facsimile of them is stored in your mind. A facsimile is
complete with every perception of the environment present when that facsimile was made
including sight, sound, smell, taste, weight, joint position and so on through half a hundred
perceptions. Just because you cannot recall motion or these perceptions does not mean they
were not recorded fully and in motion with every perception channel you had at the time. It
does mean that you have interposed a stop between the facsimile and the recall mechanisms of
your control centers. There are facsimiles of everything you have experienced in your entire
lifetime and everything you have imagined.
FIFTEEN (noun). A designation to denote a finished case. Solely for case recording to
designate a case advanced to current completion. This is a Foundation number system for
pre- clears. A case is noted on record by the act number to which it has been advanced.
GENETIC. By line of protoplasm and by facsimiles and by MEST forms the individual has
arrived in the present age from a past beginning. Genetic applies to the protoplasm line of father
and mother to child, grown child to new child and so forth.
LOCK SCANNING. A process which starts the pre- clear from a point in the past with which
he has made solid contact up through all similar incidents without verbalization. This is done
over and over, each time trying to start at an earlier incident of the same kind, until the pre- clear
extroverts on the subject of the chain. BOIL- OFF often results wherein the pre- clear seems to
go to sleep. Avoid boil- off for it is not therapeutic and will eventually result in reduced tone.
BOILOFF is a lazy auditor’s excuse to be idle and facsimiles in such severe conflict that they
will not resolve without resolving postulates first. Lock scanning is a standardized drill, started
on signal and ended with the pre- clear saying he is again in present time. It can be done on any
subject. ABOVE 2.0 only.
MEST. A compound word made up of the first letters of MATTER, ENERGY, SPACE and
TIME. A coined word for the PHYSICAL UNIVERSE. THETA IS NOT CONSIDERED AS
PART OF THE PHYSICAL UNIVERSE BUT IS NOT CONSIDERED ABSOLUTELY AS
NOT PART OF THE PHYSICAL UNIVERSE.
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.
PERCEPTIONS. By means of physical waves, rays and particles of the physical universe,
impressions of the environment enter through the “sense channels” such as the eyes and optic
nerves, the nose and olfactory nerves; the ears and aural nerves; inter- body nerves for
inter- body perceptions, etc., etc. These are all perceptions up to the instant they record as
facsimiles at which moment they become recordings. When recalled they are perceptions again,
being again entered into sense channels from the recall side. There are over half a hundred
separate perceptions all being recorded at once.
POSTULATES (verb). To conclude, decide or resolve a problem or to set a pattern for the
future or to nullify a pattern of the past.
POSTULATE (noun). A conclusion, decision or resolution made by the individual himself on
his own self- determinism on data of the past, known or unknown. The postulate is always
known. It is made upon the evaluation of data by the individual or on impulse without data. It
resolves a problem of the past, decides on problems or observations in the present or sets a
pattern for the future.
PSYCHOSOMATIC ILLNESS. A term used in common parlance to denote a condition
“resulting from a state of mind.” Such illnesses account for about seventy percent of all ills, by
popular report. Technically, in this science, a chronic or continuing painful facsimile to which
the preclear is holding to account for failures. Arthritis, bursitis, tendonitis, myopia,
astigmatism, bizarre aches and pains, sinusitis, colds, ulcers, migraine headaches, toothaches,
poliomyelitis deformities, fatness, skin malformations are a few of these legion of chronic
somatics. They are traceable to service facsimiles.
PSYCHOTIC. An individual who is out of contact to a thorough extent with his present time
environment and who does not compute into the future. He may be an acute psychotic wherein
he becomes psychotic for only a few minutes at a time and only occasionally in certain
environments (as in rages or apathies) or he may be a chronic psychotic, or in a continual
disconnection with the future and present. Psychotics who are dramatically harmful to others
are considered dangerous enough to be put away. Psychotics who are harmful on a less
dramatic basis are no less harmful to their environment and are no less psychotic.
PRE- CLEAR. One who has entered processing enroute to becoming a fifteen.
RECOVERY. Recovery of one’s own ability to determine one’s existence.
RELEASE (verb). The act of taking the perceptions or effort or effectiveness out of a heavy
facsimile or taking away the pre- clear’s hold on the facsimile.
REPETITIVE STRAIGHT- WIRE. Attention called to an incident over and over amongst other
incidents until it is de- sensitized. Used on conclusions or incidents which do not easily
SERVICE FACSIMILE. A definitely non- survival situation contained in a facsimile which is
called into action by the individual to explain his failures. A service facsimile may be one of an
illness, an injury, an inability. The facsimile begins with a down emotional curve and ends with
an upward emotional curve. Between these it has pain. A service facsimile IS the pattern which
is the chronic “psychosomatic illness.” It may contain coughs, fever, aches, rashes, any
manifestation of a non- survival character, mental or physical. It may even be a suicide effort. It
is complete with all perceptions. It has many similar facsimiles. It has many locks. The
possession and use of a service facsimile distinguishes a homo sapiens.
SERVICE FACSIMILE CHAIN. The entire chain of similar incidents which comprise the total
repertoire of the individual who is explaining thus failure and thus seeking support.
STRAIGHT- WIRE. A process of recalling, from present time, with some perception or at least
a concept, a past incident. The name straight- wire derives from the MEST communications
process of connecting two points of a communications system. It is essentially memory work.
It is applied to postulates, evaluations, incidents, scenes, emotions, or any data which may be
in the storage banks of the mind without “sending the pre- clear” into the incident itself. It is
done with the pre- clear sitting up, eyes open or shut. The auditor is very alert. Straight- wire is
done rapidly. The pre- clear is not permitted to wander or reminisce. He responds to questions
on the part of the auditor. MANY PRE- CLEARS DISLIKE BEING QUESTIONED. THE
AUDITOR MUST THEN FIRST RESOLVE THE POSTULATES AGAINST BEING
QUESTIONED; this would be called “clearing for broad straight- wire.”
TEN. A case advanced to the point of released service facsimile.
THETA. The mathematical symbol for the static of thought. By THETA is meant the static
itself. By “facsimile” is meant THETA which contains impressions by perception.
THOUGHT. The facsimiles one has recorded of his various environments and the facsimiles
he has created with his imaginings, their recombination and evaluations and conclusions for the
purpose of determining action or no action or potential action or no action. THOUGHT is used
also to mean a progress treating awareness level recordings as distinct from non- awareness

DEFINITIONS, LOGICS AND AXIOMS
These are the definitions, logics, and axioms of this science. It should be borne in mind that
these actually form epistemology, the science of knowledge. These cannot but embrace various
fields and sciences. They are listed in this volume without further elucidation but will be found
to be self explanatory for the most part. Adequate phenomena exist to demonstrate the
self- evidence of these definitions, postulates, logics and axioms.
The first section, the logics, is separate from the axioms only in that from the system of
thinking so evaluated, the axioms themselves flow. The word fogies is used here to mean
postulates pertaining to the organizational structure of alignment.
LOGIC 1— KNOWLEDGE IS A WHOLE GROUP OR SUB- DIVISION OF A GROUP OF
DATA OR SPECULATIONS OR CONCLUSIONS ON DATA OR METHODS OF
LOGIC 2— A BODY OF KNOWLEDGE IS A BODY OF DATA, ALIGNED OR
UNALIGNED, OR METHODS OF GAINING DATA.
LOGIC 3— ANY KNOWLEDGE WHICH CAN BE SENSED, MEASURED OR
EXPERIENCED BY ANY ENTITY IS CAPABLE OF INFLUENCING THAT ENTITY.
COROLLARY— THAT KNOWLEDGE WHICH CAN NOT BE SENSED, MEASURED OR
EXPERIENCED BY ANY ENTITY OR TYPE OF ENTITY CANNOT INFLUENCE THAT
ENTITY OR TYPE OF ENTITY.
LOGIC 4— A DATUM IS A FACSIMILE OF STATES OF BEING, STATES OF NOT
BEING, ACTIONS OR INACTIONS, CONCLUSIONS OR SUPPOSITIONS IN THE
PHYSICAL OR ANY OTHER UNIVERSE.
LOGIC 5— A DEFINITION OF TERMS IS NECESSARY TO THE ALIGNMENT,
STATEMENT AND RESOLUTION OF SUPPOSITIONS, OBSERVATIONS, PROBLEMS
AND SOLUTIONS AND THEIR COMMUNICATION.
DEFINITION— DESCRIPTIVE DEFINITION: ONE WHICH CLASSIFIES BY
CHARACTERISTICS, BY DESCRIBING EXISTING STATES OF BEING.
DEFINITION— DIFFERENTIATIVE DEFINITION: ONE WHICH COMPARES
UNLIKENESS TO EXISTING STATES OF BEING OR NOT BEING.
DEFINITION— ASSOCIATIVE DEFINITION: ONE WHICH DECLARES LIKENESS TO
EXISTING STATES OF BEING OR NOT BEING.
DEFINITION — ACTION DEFINITION: ONE WHICH DELINEATES CAUSE AND
POTENTIAL CHANGE OF STATE OF BEING BY CAUSE OF EXISTENCE,
INEXISTENCE, ACTION, INACTION, PURPOSE OR LACK OF PURPOSE.
LOGIC 6— ABSOLUTES ARE UNOBTAINABLE.
LOGIC 7— GRADIENT SCALES ARE NECESSARY TO THE EVALUATION OF
PROBLEMS AND THEIR DATA.
This is the tool of infinity valued logic: Absolutes are unobtainable. Terms such as good and
bad, alive and dead, right and wrong are used only in conjunction with gradient scales. On the
scale of right and wrong, everything above zero or center would be more and more right,
approaching an infinite rightness, and everything below center would be more and more wrong
approaching infinite wrongness. All things assisting the survival of the survivor are considered
to be right for the survivor. All things inhibiting survival from the viewpoint of the survivor
can be considered wrong for the survivor. The more a thing assists survival, the more it can be
considered right for the survivor; the more a thing or action inhibits survival, the more it is
wrong from the viewpoint of the intended survivor.
COROLLARY— ANY DATUM HAS ONLY RELATIVE TRUTH.
COROLLARY— TRUTH IS RELATIVE TO ENVIRONMENTS, EXPERIENCE AND
LOGIC 8— A DATUM CAN BE EVALUATED ONLY BY A DATUM OF COMPARABLE
LOGIC 9— A DATUM IS AS VALUABLE AS IT HAS
LOGIC 10— THE VALUE OF A DATUM IS ESTABLISHED BY THE AMOUNT OF
ALIGNMENT (relationship) IT IMPARTS TO OTHER DATA.
LOGIC 11— THE VALUE OF A DATUM OR FIELD OF DATA CAN BE ESTABLISHED
BY ITS DEGREE OF ASSISTANCE IN SURVIVAL OR ITS INHIBITION TO SURVIVAL.
LOGIC 12— THE VALUE OF A DATUM OR A FIELD OF DATA IS MODIFIED BY THE
VIEWPOINT OF THE OBSERVER.
LOGIC 13— PROBLEMS ARE RESOLVED BY COMPARTMENTING THEM INTO
AREAS OF SIMILAR MAGNITUDE AND DATA, COMPARING THEM TO DATA
ALREADY KNOWN OR PARTIALLY KNOWN, AND RESOLVING EACH AREA. DATA
WHICH CANNOT BE KNOWN IMMEDIATELY MAY BE RESOLVED BY ADDRESSING
WHAT IS KNOWN AND USING ITS SOLUTION TO RESOLVE THE REMAINDER.
LOGIC 14— FACTORS INTRODUCED INTO A PROBLEM OR SOLUTION WHICH DO
NOT DERIVE FROM NATURAL LAW BUT ONLY FROM AUTHORITARIAN
COMMAND ABERRATE THAT PROBLEM OR SOLUTION.
LOGIC 15— THE INTRODUCTION OF AN ARBITRARY INTO A PROBLEM OR
SOLUTION INVITES THE FURTHER INTRODUCTION OF ARBITRARIES INTO
PROBLEMS AND SOLUTIONS.
LOGIC 16— AN ABSTRACT POSTULATE MUST BE COMPARED TO THE UNIVERSE
TO WHICH IT APPLIES AND BROUGHT INTO THE CATEGORY OF THINGS WHICH
CAN BE SENSED, MEASURED OR EXPERIENCED IN THAT UNIVERSE BEFORE
SUCH POSTULATE CAN BE CONSIDERED WORKABLE.
LOGIC 17— THOSE FIELDS WHICH MOST DEPEND UPON AUTHORITATIVE
OPINION FOR THEIR DATA LEAST CONTAIN KNOWN NATURAL LAW.
LOGIC 18— A POSTULATE IS AS VALUABLE AS IT IS WORKABLE.
LOGIC 19— THE WORKABILITY OF A POSTULATE IS ESTABLISHED BY THE
DEGREE TO WHICH IT EXPLAINS EXISTING PHENOMENA ALREADY KNOWN, BY
THE DEGREE THAT IT PREDICTS NEW PHENOMENA WHICH WHEN LOOKED FOR
WILL BE FOUND TO EXIST, AND BY THE DEGREE THAT IT DOES NOT REQUIRE
THAT PHENOMENA WHICH DO NOT EXIST IN FACT BE CALLED INTO EXISTENCE
FOR ITS EXPLANATION.
LOGIC 20— A SCIENCE MAY BE CONSIDERED TO BE A LARGE BODY OF ALIGNED
DATA WHICH HAS SIMILARITY IN APPLICATION AND WHICH HAS BEEN
DEDUCED OR INDUCED FROM BASIC POSTULATES.
LOGIC 21— MATHEMATICS ARE METHODS OF POSTULATING OR RESOLVING
REAL OR ABSTRACT DATA IN ANY UNIVERSE AND INTEGRATING BY
SYMBOLIZATION OF DATA, POSTULATES AND RESOLUTIONS.
LOGIC 22— THE HUMAN MIND* IS AN OBSERVER, POSTULATOR, CREATOR AND
STORAGE PLACE OF KNOWLEDGE.
* The human mind by definition includes the awareness unit of the living organism, the
observer, the computer of data, the spirit, the memory storage, the life force and the individual
motivator of the living organism. It is used as distinct from the brain which can be considered
to be motivated by the mind.
LOGIC 23— THE HUMAN MIND IS A SERVOMECHANISM TO ANY MATHEMATICS
EVOLVED OR EMPLOYED BY THE HUMAN MIND.
POSTULATE— THE HUMAN MIND AND INVENTIONS OF THE HUMAN MIND ARE
CAPABLE OF RESOLVING ANY AND ALL PROBLEMS WHICH CAN BE SENSED,
MEASURED OR EXPERIENCED DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY.
COROLLARY— THE HUMAN MIND IS CAPABLE OF RESOLVING THE PROBLEM OF
THE HUMAN MIND.
The borderline of solution of this science lies between why life is surviving and how life is
surviving. It is possible to resolve how life is surviving without resolving w h y life is
LOGIC 24— THE RESOLUTION OF THE PHILOSOPHICAL, SCIENTIFIC AND HUMAN
STUDIES (such as economics, politics, sociology, medicine, criminology, etc.) DEPENDS
PRIMARILY UPON THE RESOLUTION OF THE PROBLEMS OF THE HUMAN MIND.
NOTE: The primary step in resolving the broad activities of man could be considered to be the
resolving of the activities of the mind itself. Hence, the logics carry to this point and then
proceed as axioms concerning the human mind, such axioms being substantiated as relative
truths by much newly discovered phenomena. The ensuing axioms, from Logic 24, apply no
less to the various “ologies” than they do to deaberrating or improving the operation of the
mind. It should not be thought that the following axioms are devoted to the construction of
anything as limited as a therapy, which is only incidental to the resolution of human aberration
and such things as psychosomatic illness. These axioms are capable of such solution, as has
been demonstrated, but such a narrow application would indicate a very narrow scope of view.
AXIOM 1— THE SOURCE OF LIFE IS A STATIC OF PECULIAR AND PARTICULAR

of lower converter forms.
AXIOM 17— THETA, VIA LAMBDA, EFFECTS AN EVOLUTION OF MEST.
In this we have the waste products of organisms on the one hand as those very complex
chemicals which bacteria make and, on the other hand, we have the physical face of the earth
being changed by animals and men, such changes as grass holding mountains from eroding or
roots cawing boulders to break, buildings being built, and rivers being dammed. There is
obviously an evolution in MEST in progress under the incursion of THETA.
AXIOM 18— LAMBDA, EVEN WITHIN A SPECIES, VARIES IN ITS ENDOWMENT OF

DEFINITION: FORCE IS RANDOM EFFORT.
DEFINITION: EFFORT IS DIRECTED FORCE.
AXIOM 36— AN ORGANISM’S EFFORT CAN BE TO REMAIN AT REST OR PERSIST
IN A GIVEN MOTION.
Static state has position in time, but an organism which is remaining positionally in a static state
if alive, is still continuing a highly complex pattern of motion, such as the heart beat, digestion,
The efforts of organisms to survive or succumb are assisted compelled or opposed by the
efforts of other organisms, matter, energy, space and time.
DEFINITION: ATTENTION IS A MOTION WHICH MUST REMAIN AT AN OPTIMUM
Attention is aberrated by becoming unfixed and sweeping at random or becoming too fixed
Unknown threats to survival when sensed cause attention to sweep without fixing.
Known threats to survival when sensed cause attention to fix.
AXIOM 37— THE ULTIMATE GOAL OF LAMBDA
IS INFINITE SURVIVAL.

AXIOM 39— THE REWARD OF AN ORGANISM ENGAGING UPON SURVIVAL
ACTIVITY IS PLEASURE.
AXIOM 40— THE PENALTY OF AN ORGANISM FAILING TO ENGAGE UPON
SURVIVAL ACTIVITY, OR ENGAGING IN NON- SURVIVAL ACTIVITY, IS PAIN.
AXIOM 41— THE CELL AND VIRUS ARE THE PRIMARY BUILDING BLOCKS OF
AXIOM 42— THE VIRUS AND CELL ARE MATTER AND ENERGY ANIMATED AND
MOTIVATED IN SPACE AND TIME BY THETA

AGGREGATIONS TO INCREASE POTENTIAL MOTION AND ACCOMPLISH EFFORT.
AXIOM 44— THE GOAL OF VIRUSES AND CELLS
IS SURVIVAL IN SPACE THROUGH TIME.
AXIOM 45— THE TOTAL MISSION OF HIGHER ORGANISMS, VIRUSES AND CELLS
IS THE SAME AS THAT OF THE VIRUS AND CELL.
AXIOM 46— COLONIAL AGGREGATIONS OF VIRUSES AND CELLS CAN BE
IMBUED WITH MORE THETA THAN THEY INHERENTLY CONTAINED.
Life Energy joins any group whether a group of organisms or group of cells composing an
organism. Here we have personal entity, individuation, etc.
AXIOM 47— EFFORT CAN BE ACCOMPLISHED BY LAMBDA ONLY THROUGH THE
COORDINATION OF ITS PARTS TOWARD GOALS.
AXIOM 48— AN ORGANISM IS EQUIPPED TO BE GOVERNED AND CONTROLLED
BY A MIND.
AXIOM 49— 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.
AXIOM 50— SMALL PROBLEMS ARE POSED AND RESOLVED THROUGH
ESTIMATIONS OF EFFORT.
AXIOM 51— THE MIND CAN CONFUSE POSITION IN SPACE WITH POSITION IN
(Counter- efforts producing action phrases.)
AXIOM 52— AN ORGANISM PROCEEDING TOWARD SURVIVAL IS DIRECTED BY
THE MIND OF THAT ORGANISM IN THE ACCOMPLISHMENT OF SURVIVAL
AXIOM 53— AN ORGANISM PROCEEDING TOWARD SUCCUMB IS DIRECTED BY
THE MIND OF THAT ORGANISM IN THE ACCOMPLISHMENT OF DEATH.
AXIOM 51— SURVIVAL OF AN ORGANISM IS ACCOMPLISHED BY THE
OVERCOMING OF EFFORTS OPPOSING ITS SURVIVAL.
(Note: Corollary for other dynamics).
DEFINITION: DYNAMIC IS THE ABILITY TO TRANSLATE SOLUTIONS INTO

AXIOM 56— THE CYCLE OF AN ORGANISM, A GROUP OF ORGANISMS OR A
SPECIES IS INCEPTION, GROWTH, RE- CREATION, DECAY AND DEATH.
AXIOM 57— THE EFFORT OF AN ORGANISM IS DIRECTED TOWARD THE CONTROL
OF THE ENVIRONMENT FOR ALL THE DYNAMICS.
AXIOM 58— CONTROL OF AN ENVIRONMENT IS ACCOMPLISHED BY THE
SUPPORT OF PRO- SURVIVAL FACTORS ALONG ANY DYNAMIC.
AXIOM 59— ANY TYPE OF HIGHER ORGANISM IS ACCOMPLISHED BY THE
EVOLUTION OF VIRUSES AND CELLS INTO FORMS CAPABLE OF BETTER
EFFORTS TO CONTROL OR LIVE IN AN ENVIRONMENT.
AXIOM 60— THE USEFULNESS OF AN ORGANISM IS DETERMINED BY ITS
ABILITY TO CONTROL THE ENVIRONMENT OR TO SUPPORT ORGANISMS WHICH
CONTROL THE ENVIRONMENT.
AXIOM 61— AN ORGANISM IS REJECTED BY THETA TO THE DEGREE THAT IT
FAILS IN ITS GOALS.
AXIOM 62— HIGHER ORGANISMS CAN EXIST ONLY IN THE DEGREE THAT THEY
ARE SUPPORTED BY THE LOWER ORGANISMS.

PAST AND PRESENT IN ORDER TO PREDICT OR POSTULATE REALITIES OF THE
AXIOM 66— THE PROCESS BY WHICH LIFE EFFECTS ITS CONQUEST OF THE
MATERIAL UNIVERSE CONSISTS IN THE CONVERSION OF THE POTENTIAL
EFFORT OF MATTER AND ENERGY IN SPACE AND THROUGH TIME TO EFFECT
WITH IT THE CONVERSION OF FURTHER MATTER AND ENERGY IN SPACE AND
AXIOM 67— THETA CONTAINS ITS OWN THETA UNIVERSE EFFORT WHICH
TRANSLATES INTO MEST EFFORT.
AXIOM 68— THE SINGLE ARBITRARY IN ANY ORGANISM IS TIME.
AXIOM 69— PHYSICAL UNIVERSE PERCEPTIONS AND EFFORTS ARE RECEIVED
BY AN ORGANISM AS FORCE WAVES, CONVERT BY FACSIMILE INTO THETA
AND ARE THUS STORED.
DEFINITION: RANDOMITY IS THE MIS- ALIGNMENT THROUGH THE INTERNAL OR
EXTERNAL EFFORTS BY OTHER FORMS OF LIFE OR THE MATERIAL UNIVERSE
OF THE EFFORTS OF AN ORGANISM, AND IS IMPOSED ON THE PHYSICAL
ORGANISM BY COUNTER- EFFORTS IN THE ENVIRONMENT.
AXIOM 70— ANY CYCLE OF ANY LIFE ORGANISM IS FROM STATIC TO MOTION TO
AXIOM 71— THE CYCLE OF RANDOMITY IS FROM STATIC, THROUGH OPTIMUM,

CONSTITUTE ANOTHER STATIC.
AXIOM 72— THERE ARE TWO SUB- DIVISIONS TO RANDOMITY: DATA RANDOMITY
AND FORCE RANDOMITY.
AXIOM 73— THE THREE DEGREES OF RANDOMITY CONSIST OF MINUS
RANDOMITY, OPTIMUM RANDOMITY AND PLUS RANDOMITY.
DEFINITION: RANDOMITY IS A COMPONENT FACTOR AND NECESSARY PART OF
MOTION, IF MOTION IS TO CONTINUE.
AXIOM 74— OPTIMUM RANDOMITY IS NECESSARY TO LEARNING.
AXIOM 75— THE IMPORTANT FACTORS IN ANY AREA OF RANDOMITY ARE
EFFORT AND COUNTER- EFFORT. (Note: As distinguished from near- perceptions of
AXIOM 76— RANDOMITY AMONGST ORGANISMS IS VITAL TO CONTINUOUS
SURVIVAL OF ALL ORGANISMS.
AXIOM 77— THETA AFFECTS THE ORGANISM, OTHER ORGANISMS AND THE
PHYSICAL UNIVERSE BY TRANSLATING THETA FACSIMlLES INTO PHYSICAL
EFFORTS OR RANDOMITY OF EFFORTS.
DEFINITION: THE DEGREE OF RANDOMITY IS MEASURED BY THE RANDOMNESS
OF EFFORT VECTORS WITHIN THE ORGANISM, AMONGST ORGANISMS,
AMONGST RACES OR SPECIES OF ORGANISMS OR BETWEEN ORGANISMS AND
THE PHYSICAL UNIVERSE.
AXIOM 78— RANDOMITY BECOMES INTENSE IN INDIRECT RATIO TO THE TIME IN
WHICH IT TAKES PLACE, MODIFIED BY THE TOTAL EFFORT IN THE AREA.
AXIOM 79— INITIAL RANDOMITY CAN BE REINFORCED BY RANDOMITIES OF
GREATER OR LESSER MAGNITUDE.
AXIOM 80— SUB AREAS OF RANDOMITY EXIST IN CHAINS OF SIMILARITY
PLOTTED AGAINST TIME. THIS CAN BE TRUE OF WORDS AND ACTIONS CON-
TAINED IN RANDOMITIES. EACH MAY HAVE ITS OWN CHAIN PLOTTED AGAINST
AXIOM 81— SANITY CONSISTS OF OPTIMUM RANDOMITY.
AXIOM 82— ABERRATION EXISTS TO THE DEGREE THAT PLUS OR MINUS
RANDOMITY EXISTS IN THE ENVIRONMENT OR PAST DATA OF AN ORGANISM,
GROUP OR SPECIES, MODIFIED BY THE ENDOWED SELF- DETERMINISM OF THAT

OR MINUS RANDOMITY OF COUNTER- EFFORTS IN THE ENVIRONMENT.
AXIOM 86— RANDOMITY CONTAINS BOTH THE RANDOMNESS OF EFFORTS AND
THE VOLUME OF EFFORTS.
(Note: An area of randomity can have a great deal of confusion but, without volume of energy,
the confusion itself is negligible).

AXIOM 93— UNCONSCIOUSNESS IS AN EXCESS OF RANDOMITY IMPOSED BY A
COUNTER- EFFORT OF SUFFICIENT FORCE TO CLOUD THE AWARENESS AND
DIRECT FUNCTION OF THE ORGANISM THROUGH THE MIND’S CONTROL
AXIOM 94— ANY COUNTER- EFFORT WHICH MISALIGNS THE ORGANISM’S
COMMAND OF ITSELF OR ITS ENVIRONMENT ESTABLISHES PLUS OR MINUS
RANDOMITY OR, IF OF SUFFICIENT MAGNITUDE, IS AN ENGRAM.
AXIOM 95— PAST ENGRAMS ARE RESTIMULATED BY THE CONTROL CENTER’S
PERCEPTION OF CIRCUMSTANCES SIMILAR TO THAT ENGRAM IN THE PRESENT
AXIOM 96— AN ENGRAM IS A THETA FACSIMILE OF ATOMS AND MOLECULES IN

AXIOM 99— THETA FACSIMILES CAN RECOMBINE INTO NEW SYMBOLS.
AXIOM 100— LANGUAGE IS THE SYMBOLIZATION OF EFFORT.
AXIOM 101— LANGUAGE DEPENDS FOR ITS FORCE UPON THE FORCE WHICH
ACCOMPANIED ITS DEFINITION. (Note: Counter- effort, not language, is aberrative.)
AXIOM 102— THE ENVIRONMENT CAN OCCLUDE THE CENTRAL CONTROL OF
ANY ORGANISM AND ASSUME CONTROL OF THE MOTOR CONTROLS OF THAT
(Engram, Restimulation, locks, hypnotism.)
AXIOM 103— INTELLIGENCE DEPENDS ON THE ABILITY TO SELECT ALIGNED OR
MIS- ALIGNED DATA FROM AN AREA OF RANDOMITY AND SO DISCOVER A

AXIOM 111— SELF- DETERMINISM CONSISTS OF MAXIMAL AFFINITY, REALITY
AXIOM 112— AFFINITY IS THE COHESION OF THETA .
Affinity manifests itself as the recognition of similarity of efforts and goals amongst organisms
by those organisms.
AXIOM 113— REALITY IS THE AGREEMENT UPON PERCEPTIONS AND DATA IN
THE PHYSICAL UNIVERSE.
All that we can be sure is real is that on which we haven agreed is real. Agreement is the

COMMUNICATION AND REALITY.
Self- determinism is manifested along each dynamic.
AXIOM 118— AN ORGANISM CANNOT BECOME ABERRATED UNLESS IT HAS
AGREED UPON THAT ABERRATION, HAS BEEN IN COMMUNICATION WITH A
SOURCE OF ABERRATION, AND HAS HAD AFFINITY FOR THE ABERRATOR.
AXIOM 119— AGREEMENT WITH ANY SOURCE, CONTRA OR PRO- SURVIVAL,
POSTULATES A NEW REALITY FOR THE ORGANISM.
AXIOM 120— NON- SURVIVAL COURSES, THOUGHTS AND ACTIONS REQUIRE
NON- OPTIMUM EFFORT.
AXIOM 121— EVERY THOUGHT HAS BEEN PRECEDED BY PHYSICAL ACTION.
AXIOM 122— THE MIND DOES WITH THOUGHT AS IT HAS DONE WITH ENTITIES
IN THE PHYSICAL UNIVERSE.
AXIOM 123— ALL EFFORT CONCERNED WITH PAIN IS CONCERNED WITH LOSS.
Organisms hold pain and engrams to them as a latent effort to Prevent loss of some portion of
the organism. All loss is a loss of motion.
AXIOM 124— THE AMOUNT OF COUNTER- EFFORT THE ORGANISM CAN
OVERCOME IS PROPORTIONAL TO THE THETA ENDOWMENT OF THE ORGANISM,
MODIFIED BY THE PHYSIQUE OF THAT ORGANISM.
AXIOM 125— EXCESSIVE COUNTER- EFFORT TO THE EFFORT OF A LIFE
ORGANISM PRODUCES UNCONSCIOUSNESS.
COROLLARY: UNCONSCIOUSNESS GIVES THE SUPPRESSION OF AN
ORGANISM’S CONTROL CENTER BY COUNTER- EFFORT.
DEFINITION: THE CONTROL CENTER OF THE ORGANISM CAN BE DEFINED AS
THE CONTACT POINT BETWEEN THETA AND THE PHYSICAL UNIVERSE AND IS
THAT CENTER WHICH IS AWARE OF BEING AWARE AND WHICH HAS CHARGE
OF AND RESPONSIBILITY FOR THE ORGANISM ALONG ALL ITS DYNAMICS.
AXIOM 126— PERCEPTIONS ARE ALWAYS RECEIVED IN THE CONTROL CENTER
OF AN ORGANISM WHETHER THE CONTROL CENTER IS IN CONTROL OF THE
ORGANISM AT THE TIME OR NOT.
This is an explanation for the assumption of valences.
AXIOM 127— ALL PERCEPTIONS REACHING THE ORGANISM’S SENSE CHANNELS
ARE RECORDED AND STORED BY THETA FACSIMILE.
DEFINITION: PERCEPTION IS THE PROCESS OF RECORDING DATA FROM THE
PHYSICAL UNIVERSE AND STORING IT AS A THETA FACSIMILE.
DEFINITION: RECALL IS THE PROCESS OF REGAINING PERCEPTIONS.
AXIOM ALBANY ORGANISM CAN RECALL EVERYTHING WHICH IT HAS
AXIOM 129— AN ORGANISM DISPLACED BY PLUS OR MINUS RANDOMITY IS
THERE AFTER REMOTE FROM THE PERCEPTION RECORDING CENTER.
Increased remoteness brings about occlusions of perceptions. One can perceive things in
present time and then, because they are being recorded after they passed theta perception of the
awareness units they are recorded but cannot be recalled.
AXIOM 130— THETA FACSIMILES OF COUNTER EFFORT ARE ALL THAT
INTERPOSE BETWEEN THE CONTROL CENTER AND ITS RECALLS.
AXIOM 131 — ANY COUNTER- EFFORT RECEIVED INTO A CONTROL CENTER IS
ALWAYS ACCOMPANIED BY ALL PERCEPTICS.
AXIOM 132— THE RANDOM COUNTER- EFFORTS TO AN ORGANISM AND THE
INTERMINGLED PERCEPTIONS IN THE RANDOMITY CAN RE- EXERT THAT FORCE
UPON AN ORGANISM WHEN RESTIMULATED.
DEFINITION: RESTIMULATION IS THE REACTIVATION OF A PAST
COUNTER- EFFORT BY APPEARANCE IN THE ORGANISM’S ENVIRONMENT OF A
SIMILARITY TOWARD THE CONTENT OF THE PAST RANDOMITY AREA.
AXIOM 133— SELF- DETERMINISM ALONE BRINGS ABOUT THE MECHANISM OF
AXIOM 134— A REACTIVATED AREA OF THE PAST RANDOMITY IMPINGES THE
EFFORT AND THE PERCEPTIONS UPON THE ORGANISM.
AXIOM 135— ACTIVATION OF A RANDOMITY AREA IS ACCOMPLISHED FIRST BY
THE PERCEPTIONS, THEN BY THE PAIN, FINALLY BY THE EFFORT.
AXIOM 136— THE MIND IS PLASTICALLY CAPABLE OF RECORDING ALL EFFORTS
AND COUNTER- EFFORTS.
AXIOM 137— A COUNTER- EFFORT ACCOMPANIED BY SUFFICIENT
(ENRANDOMED) FORCE IMPRESSES THE FACSIMILE OF THE COUNTER- EFFORT
PERSONALITY INTO THE MIND OF AN ORGANISM.
AXIOM 138— ABERRATION IS THE DEGREE OF RESIDUAL PLUS OR MINUS
RANDOMITY ACCUMULATED BY COMPELLING, INHIBITING, OR
UNWARRANTED ASSISTING OF EFFORTS ON THE
PART OF OTHER ORGANISMS OR THE PHYSICAL (MATERIAL) UNIVERSE.
Aberration is caused by what is done to the individual, not what the individual does, plus his
self- determinism about what has been done to him.
AXIOM 139— ABERRATED BEHAVIOR CONSISTS OF DESTRUCTIVE EFFORT
TOWARD PRO- SURVIVAL DATA OR ENTITIES ON ANY DYNAMIC, OR EFFORT
TOWARD THE SURVIVAL OF CONTRA SURVIVAL DATA OR ENTITIES FOR ANY
AXIOM 140— A VALENCE IS A FACSIMILE PERSONALITY MADE CAPABLE OF
FORCE BY THE COUNTER- EFFORT OF THE MOMENT OR RECEIPT INTO THE PLUS
OR MINUS RANDOMITY OF UNCONSCIOUSNESS.
Valences are assistive, compulsive or inhibitive to the organism.
A CONTROL CENTER IS NOT A VALENCE.
AXIOM 141— A CONTROL CENTER EFFORT IS ALIGNED TOWARD A GOAL
THROUGH DEFINITE SPACE AS A RECOGNIZED INCIDENT IN TIME.
AXIOM 142— AN ORGANISM IS AS HEALTHY AND SANE AS IT IS
The environmental control of the organism motor- controls inhibits the organism’s ability to
change with the changing environment, since the organism will attempt to carry forward with
one set of responses when it needs by self- determinism to create another to survive in another
AXIOM 143— ALL LEARNING IS ACCOMPLISHED BY RANDOM EFFORT.
AXIOM 144— A COUNTER- EFFORT PRODUCING SUFFICIENT PLUS OR MINUS
RANDOMITY TO RECORD IS RECORDED WITH AN INDEX OF SPACE AND TIME AS
HIDDEN AS THE REMAINDER OF ITS CONTENT.
AXIOM 145— A COUNTER- EFFORT PRODUCING SUFFICIENT PLUS OR MINUS
RANDOMITY WHEN ACTIVATED BY RESTIMULATION EXERTS ITSELF AGAINST
THE ENVIRONMENT OR THE ORGANISM WITHOUT REGARD TO SPACE AND
TIME, EXCEPT REACTIVATED PERCEPTIONS.
AXIOM 146— COUNTER- EFFORTS ARE DIRECTED OUT FROM THE ORGANISM
UNTIL THEY ARE FURTHER ENRANDOMED BY THE ENVIRON AT WHICH TIME
THEY AGAIN ACTIVATE AGAINST THE CONTROL CENTER.
AXIOM 147— AN ORGANISM’S MIND EMPLOYS COUNTER- EFFORTS EFFECTIVELY
ONLY SO LONG AS INSUFFICIENT PLUS OR MINUS RANDOMITY EXISTS TO HIDE
DIFFERENTIATION OF THE FACSIMILES CREATED.
AXIOM 148— PHYSICAL LAWS ARE LEARNED BY LIFE ENERGY ONLY BY
IMPINGEMENT OF THE PHYSICAL UNIVERSE PRODUCING RANDOMITY, AND A
WITHDRAWAL FROM THAT IMPINGEMENT.
AXIOM 149— LIFE DEPENDS UPON AN ALIGNMENT OF FORCE VECTORS IN THE
DIRECTION OF SURVIVAL AND THE NULLIFICATION OF FORCE VECTORS IN THE
DIRECTION OF SUCCUMB IN ORDER TO SURVIVE.
COROLLARY: LIFE DEPENDS UPON AN ALIGNMENT OF FORCE VECTORS IN THE
DIRECTION OF SUCCUMB AND THE NULLIFICATION OF FORCE VECTORS IN THE
DIRECTION OF SURVIVE IN ORDER TO SUCCUMB.
AXIOM 150— ANY AREA OF RANDOMITY GATHERS TO IT SITUATIONS SIMILAR
TO IT WHICH DO NOT CONTAIN ACTUAL EFFORTS BUT ONLY PERCEPTION.
AXIOM 151— WHETHER AN ORGANISM HAS THE GOAL OF SURVIVING OR
SUCCUMBING DEPENDS UPON THE AMOUNT PLUS OR MINUS RANDOMITY IT
HAS REACTIVATED. (NOT RESIDUAL).
AXIOM 152— SURVIVAL IS ACCOMPLISHED ONLY BY MOTION.
AXIOM 153— IN THE PHYSICAL UNIVERSE THE ABSENCE OF MOTION IS
AXIOM 154— DEATH IS THE EQUIVALENT TO LIFE OF TOTAL LACK OF
LIFE- MOTIVATED MOTION.
AXIOM 155— ACQUISITION OF PRO- SURVIVAL MATTER AND ENERGY OR
ORGANISMS IN SPACE AND TIME MEANS INCREASED MOTION.
AXIOM 156— LOSS OF PRO- SURVIVAL MATTER AND ENERGY OR ORGANISMS IN
SPACE AND TIME MEANS DECREASED MOTION.
AXIOM 157— ACQUISITION OR PROXIMITY OF MATTER, ENERGY OR ORGANISMS
WHICH ASSIST THE SURVIVAL OF AN ORGANISM INCREASE THE SURVIVAL
POTENTIALS OF AN ORGANISM.
AXIOM 158— ACQUISITION OR PROXIMITY OF MATTER, ENERGY OR ORGANISMS
WHICH INHIBIT THE SURVIVAL OF AN ORGANISM DECREASE ITS SURVIVAL
AXIOM 159— GAIN OF SURVIVAL ENERGY, MATTER OR ORGANISMS INCREASES
THE FREEDOM OF AN ORGANISM.
AXIOM 160— RECEIPT OR PROXIMITY OF NONSURVIVAL ENERGY, MATTER OR
TIME DECREASES THE FREEDOM OF MOTION OF AN ORGANISM.
AXIOM 161— THE CONTROL CENTER ATTEMPTS THE HALTING OR
LENGTHENING OF TIME, THE EXPANSION OR CONTRACTION OF SPACE AND
THE DECREASE OR INCREASE OF ENERGY AND MATTER.
This is a primary source of invalidation, and it is also a primary source of aberration.
AXIOM 162— PAIN IS THE BALK OF EFFORT BY COUNTER- EFFORT IN GREAT
INTENSITY, WHETHER THAT EFFORT IS TO REMAIN AT REST OR IN MOTION.
AXIOM 163— PERCEPTION, INCLUDING PAIN, CAN BE EXHAUSTED FROM AN
AREA OF PLUS OR MINUS RANDOMITY, STILL LEAVING THE EFFORT AND
COUNTER- EFFORT OF THAT PLUS OR MINUS RANDOMITY.
AXIOM 164— THE RATIONALITY OF THE MIND DEPENDS UPON AN OPTIMUM
REACTION TOWARD TIME.
DEFINITION: SANITY, THE COMPUTATION OF FUTURES.
DEFINITION: NEUROTIC, THE COMPUTATION OF PRESENT TIME ONLY.
DEFINITION: PSYCHOTIC, COMPUTATON ONLY OF PAST SITUATIONS.
AXIOM 165— SURVIVAL PERTAINS ONLY TO THE FUTURE.
COROLLARY: SUCCUMB PERTAINS ONLY TO THE PRESENT AND PAST.
AXIOM 166— AN INDIVIDUAL IS AS HAPPY AS HE CAN PERCEIVE SURVIVAL
POTENTIALS IN THE FUTURE.
AXIOM 167— AS THE NEEDS OF ANY ORGANISM ARE MET IT RISES HIGHER AND
HIGHER IN ITS EFFORTS ALONG THE DYNAMICS.
An organism which achieves ARC with itself can better achieve ARC with sex in the future;
having achieved this it can achieve ARC with groups; having achieved this, it can achieve ARC
with mankind, etc.
AXIOM 168— AFFINITY, REALITY AND COMMUNICATION CO- EXIST IN AN
The co- existent relationship between affinity, reality and communication is such that none can
be increased without increasing the other two and none can be decreased without decreasing the
AXIOM 169— ANY AESTHETIC PRODUCT IS A SYMBOLIC FACSIMILE OR
COMBINATION OF FACSIMILES OF THETA OR PHYSICAL UNIVERSES IN VARIED
RANDOMITIES AND VOLUMES OF RANDOMITIES WITH THE INTERPLAY OF
AXIOM 170— AN AESTHETIC PRODUCT IS AN INTERPRETATION OF THE
UNIVERSES BY AN INDIVIDUAL OR GROUP MIND.

ORGANISM IS AFFECTED BY THE DEGREES OF RANDOMITY EXISTING IN ITS
PAST. (This includes learning.)
AXIOM 177— AREAS OF PAST PLUS OR MINUS RANDOMITY CAN BE
READDRESSED BY THE CONTROL CENTER OF AN ORGANISM AND THE PLUS OR
MINUS RANDOMITY EXHAUSTED.
AXIOM 178— THE EXHAUSTION OF PAST PLUS OR MINUS RANDOMITIES
PERMITS THE CONTROL CENTER OF AN ORGANISM TO EFFECT ITS OWN
EFFORTS TOWARD SURVIVAL GOALS.
AXIOM 179— THE EXHAUSTION OF SELF- DETERMINED EFFORT FROM A PAST
AREA OF PLUS OR MINUS RANDOMITY NULLIFIES THE EFFECTIVENESS OF
AXIOM 180— PAIN IS THE RANDOMITY PRODUCED BY SUDDEN OR STRONG
AXIOM 181— PAIN IS STORED AS PLUS OR MINUS RANDOMITY.
AXIOM 182— PAIN, AS AN AREA OF PLUS OR MINUS RANDOMITY, CAN
RE- INFLICT ITSELF UPON THE ORGANISM.
AXIOM 183— PAST PAIN BECOMES INEFFECTIVE UPON THE ORGANISM WHEN
THE RANDOMITY OF ITS AREA IS ADDRESSED AND ALIGNED.
AXIOM 184— THE EARLIER THE AREA OF PLUS OR MINUS RANDOMITY, THE
GREATER SELF PRODUCED EFFORT EXISTED TO REPEL IT.
AXIOM 185— LATER AREAS OF PLUS OR MINUS RANDOMITY CANNOT BE:

THAT WHICH PROMOTES THE SURVIVAL OF THAT ORGANISM.
COROLLARY: EVIL MAY BE DEFINED AS THAT WHICH INHIBITS OR BRINGS
PLUS OR MINUS RANDOMITY INTO THE ORGANISM, WHICH IS CONTRARY TO
THE SURVIVAL MOTIVES OF THE ORGANISM.
AXIOM 190— HAPPINESS CONSISTS IN THE ACT OF BRINGING ALIGNMENT INTO
HITHER TO RESISTING PLUS OR MINUS RANDOMITY. NEITHER THE ACT OR
ACTION OF ATTAINING SURVIVAL, NOR THE ACCOMPLISHMENT OF THIS ACT
ITSELF, BRINGS ABOUT HAPPINESS.
AXIOM 191— CONSTRUCTION IS AN ALIGNMENT OF DATA.
