ALTERATIONS IN THE MATERIALS OF DIANETICS AND SCIENTOLOGY

SCIENCE OF SURVIVAL


Comparing 15th printing (1975) of the original 1951 edition copyrighted under L. Ron Hubbard [ISBN 0-88404-001-1] to 2007 altered edition copyrighted under “L. Ron Hubbard Library” [ISBN 978-1-4031-4485-0]


Please, keep in mind the statements made by David Miscavige with respect to “correcting” the original text at the Basics release event in 2007:

Loading the player...

“... The chart of human evaluation is not only the primary tool of a case supervisor, but the theta-MEST theory and the tone scale is the basis of our entire Grade Chart! In other words, to say the book is important would be a gross understatement.
...
When Science of Survival was published it was presented with a subtitle of "Simpler and Faster Techniques." If that's the case, then how come so many find it so complex?
...
This too was a dictated book. And since the transcriptionist and editor were the first to touch this book, the very book defining the various tone levels, it then follows that they were also the first one one (1.1) since the tone level was discovered. And here is what I mean – they were so indecisive they really didn’t know where to begin or end the sentence, specifically, here is where they weren’t sure if it should be a comma or a period and so they split the difference and used a semicolon [presenting animated example of a page on the screen getting populated with semicolons, not a photocopy from an actual book] which a good percentage of readers never understood in the first place. And given one semicolon begets another, it wasn't long before it was the march of the semicolons frustrating readers and lengthening lines to word clearers from one end of Scientology to another.

Not that I want to overstate the matter or bad mouth somebody who was trying, but when you consider that even when they didn't use one of their multitudes of semicolons, they still started the sentence in the wrong place, and when you further consider that when the book was returned to its original and intended form, it reads with a simplicity of a Self-Analysis – it really does bare comment. So let me put it this way: yes, this book too is now perfect; and the number of incorrect instances of punctuation that had to be corrected – hang on to your seat – three thousand eight hundred and twenty five (3825). So yes, you were right, something just didn't make sense.
[audience standing up and clapping]

Whereupon what more is there to say? Students were previously spending weeks upon weeks digging their way through this book, perhaps “suffering” is a better word; and yet many students currently on a pilot program are completing this 550 page book in as little as 22 hours. Even if you double or triple that time you are still looking at one tenth (1/10th) previous times.

So for the first time you have LRH's text as he originally intended providing the very basics of the Tone Scale, The Basic Laws of Theta – ARC, including their interaction on the tone scale, and so it goes chapter by chapter. For any who have ever had difficulty with the book, it's now so clear – you will actually wonder where the confusion ever was. Because the book is that simple – JUST as LRH wrote it.”

You can see the full version of this video on the official Church of Scientology website at this address:
http://www.scientology.org/david-miscavige/basic-books-and-lectures.html
The segment about Science of Survival starts at 57:17 time marker of the video.


It should be noted that the following phrases are simply Miscavige's generalizations:
how come so many find it so complex?
a good percentage of readers never understood in the first place
the march of the semicolons frustrating readers

As demonstrated in the analysis below (see MORE ON THE USE OF A SEMICOLON section), a semicolon was used where appropriate according to the rules of English grammar. If David Miscavige (or anyone else) does not actually understand the use of  this punctuation mark, he should have looked it up in a dictionary.

David Miscavige also misstated an important fact: the first publication of the book was NOT subtitled “Simpler and Faster Techniques.” As can be seen on the the original description page take from 1976 Technical Volume I, Science of Survival was originally subtitled “Simplified, Faster Dianetic Techniques” which would make sense since it is the next book that followed the first publication of Dianetics: The Modern Science of Mental Health. Strangely enough, this can also be seen on an image of the first publication flashed on screen during Miscavige's presentation:


In addition, once you have it in front you, it is almost impossible not to notice how toward the end of his talk David Miscavige says “just as LRH wrote it.” Didn't he earlier state that the book was DICTATED?




START OF ALTERATION REPORT


First, there is an obvious change in the material form of the book – 2007 edition is much larger and heavier.

Note, the brown spots on 1975 dust jacket is discoloration of paper inc due to age.

4th printing (the same year as the first publication in 1951) of the original text was also available for this review. On cursory inspection the text in the 4th printing looks the same as the text in the 15th printing used in this report; there was no line by line comparison for these two.

In addition, 1989 [ISBN: 0-88404-420-3] and 2001 [ISBN: 0-88404-418-1] "L. Ron Hubbard Library" editions were acquired to find out if many of the alterations found in 2007 edition already appeared in earlier publications under the new copyright. Alterations in wording in BOOK ONE section were checked against these two publications. A few of the same alterations were already present in 1989 publication while 2001 edition contains nearly all of the same alterations that now appear in 2007 edition. This specifically pertains to alterations in wording, not to alterations in punctuation. For each instance of alteration which was checked, it was specifically indicated in this report whether it is – "yes" – or is not – "no" – in either 1989 or 2001 editions ("some" was indicated where there was only partial match in a given text with various alterations).

This review indeed provided a great view of how Ron Hubbard's works have been gradually distorted over time. Keep in mind, Science of Survival is just ONE book out of a pile of other materials that have been distorted in various ways.


To aid the ease of analysis, alterations in Science of Survival were separated into four major categories:
Alterations in CAPITALIZATION
Alterations in SPELLING
Alterations in PUNCTUATION / SENTENCE STRUCTURE
Alterations in WORDING

Note! Bold formatting in citations was added to highlight key areas of alteration. Key areas of punctuation were underlined. Square brackets – [ ] – were used to insert comment where needed. With a few exceptions comments will also appear in italics, but italics formatting inside the quotations is original formatting of how it appeared in the book from where it was quoted.

CAPITALIZATION


Many dianetic terms were capitalized which were not capitalized in the original text:
Dianetic, Dianetically, Dianetic Release, Release, Clear, Tone Scale, Tone, Straight Memory, Lock Scanning, Lock Scan, Lock Scanned, Lock Reduction, Chain Scanning, Repeater Technique, Affinity, Reality, and Communication, First through Seventh Dynamic, Auditor’s Code, Repeater Technique, Theta-MEST Theory, Standard Procedure, Positive Processing.

The word “clear” was capitalized into absurdity of having it capitalized where it did not even mean the state of clear as in “Clear-thinking”:
2007: B2-267) Well, Clear-thinking, strong individuals are highly necessary in this society at this time.

Word “clear” was also improperly capitalized where it served as a participle adjective “cleared”:
2007: B2-382) The auditor, thus, must be compatible with the preclear and must have been Cleared with the preclear (as a group of two) if he expects to run any secondary engrams on this preclear.

Some other terms not directly related to Dianetics were capitalized as well:
Absolute Truth, Forces of Good, Forces of Evil, Devil, Communism, Man, Mankind, Mama and Papa.

It is interesting to note that while the word “devil” was capitalized in instances where it was not capitalized in the original text, the word “Godless” was de-capitalized where it was capitalized in the original text.


SPELLING


Many words which were originally spelled using proper British spelling were changed into American spelling format. The following is a list of words that were noted to have been changed in spelling. There could be more examples in text:
Favour > favor; behaviour > behavior; endeavour > endeavor; amongst > among; skilfully > skillfully; honour > honor; analyser > analyzer; sanatorium > sanitarium; theatre > threater; anaesthetic > anesthetic; labelled > labeled; odour > odor; mould > mold; centre > center; programme > program; towards > toward; favourite > favorite; pretence > pretense; judgement > judgment; odour > odor; paralyse > paralyze; criticising > criticizing.

Many numbers that were written in words were changed to number format such as “seventy” to “70.”


There were also changes in the use of a hyphen in either adding or removing it such as in the following examples:
A-R-C > ARC; pre-clear > preclear; psycho-surgery > psychosurgery; psycho-therapist > psychotherapist; coaudit > co-audit; nonsurvival > non-survival; un-enturbulate > unentrubulate

There were 19 typos found in 1975 printing that would have been virtually unnoticeable without computerized spell checking:

PAGE B1-8:      collison
PAGE B1-31:    additon
PAGE B1-57:    tranference
PAGE B1-60:    phychic
PAGE B1-65:    whichs
PAGE B1-177:  authortarian
PAGE B2-40:    sedution
PAGE B2-71:    sincle
PAGE B2-72:    enforement
PAGE B2-74:    bcome
PAGE B2-74:    Inidviduals
PAGE B2-81:    litttle
PAGE B2-118:    psychomatic
PAGE B2-142:    relalively
PAGE B2-145:    aomunting
PAGE B2-208:    assocation
PAGE B2-265:    allevation
PAGE B2-275:    ambitous
PAGE B2-301:    infinte



PUNCTUATION / SENTENCE STRUCTURE


At the center stage of changes in punctuation is breaking down joined sentences often resulting in a very much unwanted dispersal of conceptual concentration and an unpleasant read, and even incorrect grammar in some cases. Here is a slide for a quick overview:
Science of Survival Alterations


Many sentences that were joined with a coordinating conjunction (and, but, for.. etc) and a comma were broken down with a period. Examples:

1975: B1-5 2007: B1-6
Each form evolved from the initial impact of theta against MEST, and each form on a higher level is supported by lower-level forms.
Each form evolved from the initial impact of theta Against MEST. And each form on a higher level is supported by lower-level forms.
1975: B1-19 2007: B1-21
The auditor who is doing processing regularly and has been trained for it will use any method to raise the tone of his preclear*, for when the tone is raised, processing is easier.

1975: B1-50 2007: B1-58
He has no irrational reasons to experience grief or fear, but when present-time circumstances strongly call for these emotions, he will display them, and yet soon afterwards be fully recovered.
He has no irrational reasons to experience grief or fear. But when present time circumstances strongly call for these emotions, he will display them and yet soon afterward be fully recovered.
1975: B1-63 2007: B1-72
If communication exists, some agreement can be reached, and as soon as an agreement is reached between two people or by a man with himself, there is some affinity.
If communication exists, some agreement can be reached. And as soon as an agreement is reached between two people or by a man with himself, there is some affinity.
1975: B2-18 2007: B2-232
If one does not feel that he can keep the auditor’s code wholly and completely, he should not under any circumstances audit anyone, nor should he permit himself to be persuaded to audit anyone, and any pre-clear should be very wary of permitting himself to be audited by anyone who potentially would break the auditor’s code. If one does not feel that he can keep the Auditor’s Code wholly and completely, he should not, under any circumstances, audit anyone. Nor should he permit himself to be persuaded to audit anyone. And any preclear should be very wary of permitting himself to be audited by anyone who potentially would break the Auditor’s Code.


Some sentences with a coordinating conjunction were broken down where there was not even a punctuation mark such as a comma or a semicolon requiring a pause. Examples:

1975: B1-13 2007: B1-15
The result is that when he is in a restimulative environment he may be covertly hostile but in a more favourable environment he may be analytically very productive.
The result is that when he is in a restimulative environment, he may be covertly hostile. But in a more favorable environment, he may be analytically very productive.

[Also, notice two additional commas requiring a pause where there doesn’t need to be one.]


1975: B1-15 2007: B1-18
Further recounting brings him into a cheerful frame of mind about it and finally he simply laughs over it.
Further recounting brings him into a cheerful frame of mind about it. And finally he simply laughs over it.
1975: B1-21 2007: B1-23
Finally we have the band below death and the MEST body and on these we can do nothing, of course. Finally we have the band below death and the MEST body. And on these we can do nothing, of course.


Few sentences that were originally separated with a period were combined instead. Examples:

1975: B1-9 2007: B1-10
Thus the small boy who hit his head on the rock knows analytically that he fell and hit his head, perhaps, but he “knows” better with his reactive mind. Suppose the smell of dust was present in the accident. The reactive mind has stored the perceptic of the smell of dust. Thus the small boy who hit his head on the rock knows analytically that he fell and hit his head, perhaps, but he “knows” better with his reactive mind. Supposing the smell of dust was present in the accident, the reactive mind stored the perceptic of the smell of dust.

1975: B1-122 2007: B1-141
The auditor should keep in mind the axiom that all creation carries with it a small amount of destruction; just as one may not be able to construct an apartment building without destroying the tenement which sits there; just as one may not be able to publish a newspaper without destroying forests to obtain newsprint. It is the ratio of creation to destruction which counts.

Just as one may not be able to construct an apartment building without destroying the tenement which sits there, just as one may not be able to publish a newspaper without destroying forests to obtain newsprint, it is the ratio of creation to destruction which counts.

[Here replacing period with a comma between “newsprint” and “it” resulted in a grammatical error called “comma splice.” See more explanation on this and the use of a semicolon in a separate section below.]


Many sentences that were joined with a semicolon with or without a coordinating conjunction were broken down with a period (see MORE ON THE USE OF A SEMICOLON section for examples).


The indiscriminate breaking down of sentences extended into a complete absurdity of resulting in sentences that are grammatically incorrect:

1975: B1-52 2007: B1-59
First, the pre-clear would be in very deep apathy, not knowing or caring whether this incident would resolve or not. He would then go up the scale to apathy, then to grief.
First, the preclear would be in very deep apathy, not knowing or caring whether this incident would resolve or not. He would then go up the scale to apathy. Then to grief.

[“Then to grief” is an incomplete sentence since it does not contain a verb and is just a continuation of the concept being expressed in the preceding sentence.]


1975: B1-79 2007: B1-91
The word somatic means, actually, bodily or physical. Because the word pain is restimulative, and because the word pain has in the past led to a confusion between physical pain and mental pain, the word somatic is used in Dianetics to denote physical pain or discomfort of any kind. It can mean actual pain, such as that caused by a cut or a blow; or it can mean discomfort, as from heat or cold; it can mean itching—in short, anything physically uncomfortable.
The word somatic means, actually, “bodily or physical.” Because the word pain is restimulative and because the word pain has in the past led to a confusion between physical pain and mental pain, the word somatic is used, in Dianetics, to denote physical pain or discomfort of any kind. It can mean actual pain such as that caused by a cut or a blow. Or it can mean discomfort as from heat or cold. It can mean itching. In short, anything physically uncomfortable.

[Notice how in the original sentence a semicolon was skillfully used to connect related sentences in a more continuous flow of thought – this was broken up with periods in the “corrected” 2007 version. In addition, “in Dianetics” was surrounded by commas where it did not need to be, and “in short, anything physically uncomfortable” was separated into its own sentence resulting in incorrect grammar since it does not contain a verb.]


Here is another clear example:

1975: B2-11 2007: B2-225
The mate who is lower will demand more communication and give less, and will assert more reality but will actually have less.
The mate who is lower will demand more communication and give less. And will assert more reality, but will actually have less.

[Here “And will assert more reality, but will actually have less” is not a correct sentence because it does not contain a subject. The comma between “less” and “and” was used in the original text as a matter of style and not to separate two sentences joined with a coordinating conjunction as usually the case. Also, there is no need for a pause between “reality” and “but” so there was no need to have a comma in that place.]



MORE ON THE USE OF A SEMICOLON

Let’s look at Miscavige’s claim with respect to the use a semicolon a little closer:
“…they [transcriptionist and the editor] were so indecisive they really didn’t know where to begin or end the sentence, specifically, here is where they weren’t sure if it should be a comma or a period and so they split the difference and used a semicolon…”
First of all, there was no “they.” The author of the book is L. Ron Hubbard. Second, this utterly absurd statement should make one wonder – does David Miscavige himself understand the use of a semicolon in sentences or even the grammatical construct of sentences in general? It is quite obvious from the ample examples provided in this report that this man, who never published a single book in his life, must himself lack some very basic education to say the least.

So what are the rules for using a semicolon? This can be easily answered by anyone with Internet access and some ability to read. Some good resources for understanding the use of a semicolon:
http://oxforddictionaries.com/words/semicolon
http://www.grammarbook.com/punctuation/semicolons.asp
http://writing.wisc.edu/Handbook/Semicolons.html (you can also use this website for definition of terms: independent clause, coordinating conjunctions, conjunctive adverbs, and transitional phrases).


General rule: “The main task of the semicolon is to mark a break that is stronger than a comma but not as final as a full stop. It’s used between two main clauses that balance each other and are too closely linked to be made into separate sentences.” [http://oxforddictionaries.com/words/semicolon]:

1975: B1-42 2007: B1-49
Theta itself could be called reason; entheta could be called unreason.

Theta itself could be called reason. Entheta could be called unreason.

1975: B1-60 2007: B1-69
The existence of God and spiritual manifestations could be classified as theta universe; contact with these would be considered a use of theta perceptics.

The existence of God and spiritual manifestations could be classified as theta universe. Contact with these would be considered a use of theta perceptics.

1975: B1-63 2007: B1-72
There cannot, for instance, be communication and affinity alone; these two things would result in an agreement of some sort, which agreement would be reality. There cannot, for instance, be communication and affinity alone. These two things would result in an agreement of some sort, which agreement would be a reality.


More specific use: “Use a semicolon between two independent clauses that are connected by conjunctive adverbs or transitional phrases.” [http://writing.wisc.edu/Handbook/Semicolons.html]:

1975: B1-66 2007: B1-77
A primary concern of the auditor is the turning on of sonic; therefore he must know what turns it off.

Running locks and secondaries is a much more rapid way of raising the tone of the case; however, that tone can fall again so long as engrams remain.

Running locks and secondaries is a much more rapid way of raising the tone of the case. However, that tone can fall again so long as engrams remain.

1975: B1-107 2007: B1-122
Valence is a survival mechanism, one of the means used by the mind to escape too painful an existence; therefore, in order to get the pre-clear into his own valence much of the charge has to be unburdened from the track. Valence is a survival mechanism, one of the means used by the mind to escape too painful an existence. Therefore, in order to get the preclear into his own valence, much of the charge has to be unburdened from the track.


Another specific use: “Use a semicolon between independent clauses joined by a coordinating conjunction if the clauses are already punctuated with commas or if the clauses are lengthy.” [http://writing.wisc.edu/Handbook/Semicolons.html]:

1975: B1-48 2007: B1-55
The development of a new science naturally means the development of many new terms; and as new data is discovered, old definitions are often found to be inadequate.

1975: B1-52 2007: B1-60

If he cannot turn on grief, he may be able to turn on anger. And once he has taken some of the anger off of the case, perhaps he can run some of the lower levels such as fear.

1975: B1-81 2007: B1-93
There is much more that could be discovered about this mechanism or conversion of physical pain to, for instance, terror or grief or apathy; and the discovery probably lies in the field of further examination and understanding of free theta; but it is certain that secondary engrams, with their mis-emotion, occlude somatics.

But it is certain that secondary engrams, with their mis-emotion, occlude somatics.


Grammatical error: “Both parts of the sentence are independent clauses, and commas should not be used to connect independent clauses if there is no coordinating conjunction. This mistake is known as a comma splice.” [http://writing.wisc.edu/Handbook/Semicolons.html]:

1975: B1-59 2007: B1-69

1975: B1-63 2007: B1-73
The auditor must appreciate the value of communication; since if his pre-clear cannot communicate with his own past he cannot make an accurate adjudication of his own present and he certainly cannot compute his own future.

MISLEADING USE OF PARENTHESIS

Parenthesis are commonly used in sentences to include optional text that clarifies something in the sentence but is not considered essential, meaning – if you read the sentence without the text in parenthesis, it is still a complete communication. There are numerous instances throughout 2007 Science of Survival where phrases within sentences were surrounded with parenthesis erroneously communicating to readers that the text now enclosed in parenthesis is an optional addition and non-essential instead of being an inseparable part of the sentence. Here are a few examples:

1975: B1-40 2007: B1-45
Contradicting one of the child’s statements or beliefs, which is to say his reality, is also to break affinity with him and suppress his communication.

Contradicting one of the child’s statements or beliefs (which is to say, his reality) is also to break affinity with him and to suppress his communication.

1975: B1-47 2007: B1-54
The sixth dynamic would include the affinity, communication, and reality of MEST as itself, within its own laws as expressed in the physical sciences; but more important for our purposes, the feeling of the individual for MEST, to know it, to use it, and to preserve it.

The Sixth Dynamic would include the affinity, communication and reality of MEST as itself (within its own laws as expressed in the physical sciences), but more important for our purposes, the feeling of the individual for MEST: to know it, to use it and to preserve it.

1975: B1-49 2007: B1-56
If the present-time situation seemed to indicate, because of happy circumstances, happiness, and yet the individual remained apathetic, this would be irrational. If the present time situation seemed to indicate (because of happy circumstances) happiness and yet the individual remained apathetic, this would be irrational.


1975: B1-49 2007: B1-56
Being emotional, however, would indicate, if the emotionality agreed with current circumstances, a rational state of being.

Being emotional, however, would indicate (if the emotionality agreed with current circumstances) a rational state of being.


[The sentence means something entirely different without the text that was enclosed in parenthesis here.]


1975: B1-60 2007: B1-69
Oddly enough, in Dianetics considerable evidence, whether we wish it or not, is accumulating in favour of not only a theta universe and a theta body but of theta perceptics, as well. This has proceeded far enough to contain some evidence that certain techniques of application, already partially formed, exist by which the theta perceptics can be cleared, raising the prediction potentiality of the individual, amongst other things.

When we take this individual and dianetically process him and turn the entheta into theta, he becomes more and more powerful and able to cope with and adjust his environment.

When we take this individual and Dianetically process him (and turn the entheta into theta), he becomes more and more powerful and able to cope with and adjust his environment.


[There is absolutely nothing optional about the text that was enclosed in parenthesis in this sentence.]


Examples of misusing parenthesis like the few above are abundant throughout the text – at least a few in nearly every chapter. Alterations in punctuation overall however are so abundant that it would be an overwhelming task to even just count every single occurrence. Miscavige did say 3825 and he wasn't kidding.

Overall distortions in content in Science of Survival are quite extensive and incidious. Here are two slides that illustrate the nature of so called "corrections" quite clearly:

And what of the practitioner who has devoted years to the study of methods and theories which are suddenly shown to be obsolete and even harmful? And what of the practitioner, who studied twelve long years to become an expert in exorcising demons from the insane, when he is suddenly informed that a few weeks of study in Dianetics qualifies any intelligent man to do a much better— and much less harmful— job?

1975: vii 2007: iii [1989-yes / 2001-yes]
Dianetics was asked to vindicate itself in 1950. It did, as you will see in the publisher’s introduction. This was very tolerant of Dianetics for no existing “ology” pertaining to the human mind has ever been validated or has been called upon to validate itself.

Dianetics was asked to vindicate itself in 1950. It did. This was very tolerant of Dianetics, for no existing -ology pertaining to the human mind has ever been validated, nor has it been called upon to validate itself.


[Obviously, since the Publisher's Introduction (the following chapter of 23 pages in 1975 printing) presenting case studies demonstrating Dianetics' effectiveness was eliminated from 2007 “edition”, the sentence letting readers know that there was indeed such a document in the book also had to go. The Publisher's Introduction does not appear in 1989 or 2001 edition as well.]

BOOK ONE



CHAPTER ONE (COLUMN A – The Tone Scale)


1975: B1-3 2007: B1-3 [1989-some / 2001-yes]
A “too-complicated” school of thought, masquerading as science, took up this argument, seeing that it obfuscated any real explanation, or reason for one, and began to say that the human mind, being part of a machine which was too complicated for biology and biochemistry, was of course too complicated to understand. It is felt that this waving aside of the problems of mind operation, this acting on the defeatist principle that the problem could not be solved, introduced “therapies” which were “too complicated.” It took four to twelve years to get an inkling of these therapies and all evidence to hand, carefully compiled, shows that they do not work, that the problems of criminality, insanity and war still remained, with these systems of “therapy,” far out of control. The too-complicated school of life and mind operation gives us a picture of a group of demon exorcists rushing around plague-ridden London a couple of centuries ago, telling everyone they had the solution to the plague, while some hundreds of thousands of Englishmen died the black death. A “too-complicated” school of thought, a scientific masquerade, took up this argument and saw that it obfuscated any real explanation (or reason for one) and began to say that the human mind, being a part of a machine which was too complicated for biology and biochemistry, was of course too complicated to understand, being a part of a too-complicated organism. It is felt that this “waving aside of the problems of mind” operation, this operation on the defeatist principle that the problem could not be solved, introduced “therapies” which were “too complicated.” It took four to twelve years to get an inkling of these therapies. And all evidence to hand, carefully compiled, shows that they do not work, that the problems of criminality, insanity and war still remained, with these systems of “therapy,” far out of control. The too-complicated school of life and mind operation gives us a picture of a group of demon exorcists rushing around plague-ridden London a couple of centuries ago, telling everyone they had the solution to the plague, while some hundreds of thousands of Englishmen died the Black Death. With 19 million insane in the United States alone, with nations in the grip of madmen planning conquest, the too-complicated school rushes about getting a good press on how well they are doing, while all the evidence says entirely otherwise.

[Notice an example of breaking down a sentence “...therapies. And...” The last sentence does not appear in 1975 15th printing nor in 1951 4th printing of the original text, but it does already appear in both 1989 and 2001 distorted editions.]


1975: B1-5 2007: B1-6 [1989-no / 2001-yes]
Theta crushed too hard into MEST becomes entheta. MEST crushed too hard into theta becomes enMEST. Entheta is simply a compound word meaning “enturbulated theta.” And enMEST is another word meaning “enturbulated MEST.”

Theta crushed too hard into MEST becomes entheta. MEST impinged upon by entheta becomes enMEST. Entheta is simply a compound word meaning enturbulated theta. And enMEST is another word meaning enturbulated MEST.



1975: B1-6 2007: B1-7 [1989-yes / 2001-yes]
If this is the cycle — and this assumption solves problems which were never solved before— then we can see that theta would have to have a withdrawal mechanism, and so it does. Death is that mechanism. Theta and MEST are attached to each other but when they become painfully mixed up, they become entheta and enMEST. If this is the cycle (and this assumption solves problems which were never solved before), then we can see that theta would have to have a withdrawal mechanism. And so it does. Death is that mechanism. Theta and MEST are attracted to each other, but when they become painfully mixed up, they become entheta and enMEST.

1975: B1-14 2007: B1-15 [1989-no / 2001-yes]
Anything which raises a person’s tone can be considered legitimate processing. This includes, of course, nutrition, environment, and education, as well as processing. Simply taking the person to see a movie he wants to see may raise his tone. Processing achieves permanent rises in tone. If it is illegal anywhere to process people, then it must also, sequitur, be illegal to make people happy. Anything which raises a person’s tone can be considered legitimate processing.

Processing achieves permanent raises in tone. If it is illegal anywhere to process people, then it must also, sequitur, be illegal to make people happy. And if laws exist against making people happy, somebody had better overthrow that government quick. For it is a death government, so entheta that it will bring about the death of the state and those within it.

[“Rises” is the correct word to use, not “raises” – see noun definitions in Oxford dictionary:

http://oxforddictionaries.com/us/definition/american_english/raise
Last two sentences urging readers to overthrow an “entheta” government does not appear in 1975 15th printing nor in 1951 4th printing, but it does appear in 2001 altered edition.]


CHAPTER TWO (COLUMN B – Dianetic Evaluation)


1975: B1-19 2007: B1-22 [1989-no / 2001-no]
The use of the term “average” or “normal” is susceptible to considerable misunderstanding. It simply means the average of the population’s intelligence and ability. It is remarkably low in the United States compared to what it could be. But the United States’ average is considerably higher than that, for instance, of Panama.

CHAPTER FOUR (COLUMN D – Psychiatric Range)


1975: B1-29 2007: B1-34 [1989-no / 2001-yes]
Free association is a long drawn-out procedure which is, at best, of very questionable value. Restraints and cold packs only succeed in shocking the patient into a deeper state of lethargy. Do not condone such methods nor permit them to be used on your pre-clears, for the simple reason that they do not work.

Handle the psychotic gently. Respect his rights to a whole brain and a future. Do not consider that he is your toy or your experimental animal.
Free association is a long, drawn-out procedure which, although it has had some success in rehabilitating patients who were not too near the bottom of the Tone Scale, is in the long run of questionable value. Restraints and cold packs only succeed in shocking the patient into a deeper state of lethargy. Do not condone such methods nor permit them to be used on your preclears for the simple reason, aside from their inhuman aspects, that they do not work. They only sap the remaining stamina from the patient. Why cling to old-fashioned and even barbaric methods when Dianetics provides surer, more effective and humane techniques?

Handle the psychotic gently. Respect his rights to a whole brain and a future. Do not consider that he is your toy or your experimental animal for vivisection or strange sadistic “treatment.”

CHAPTER SIX (The Basic Laws of Theta Affinity - Reality - Communication)


1975: B1-36 2007: B1-42 [1989-no / 2001-yes]
We have thought of evolution in the past as something stretched back along the eons, as a graduated scale of various species which changed as the ages progressed down to our present life forms.

One must also consider in a discussion of theta that theta is measured on a gradient tone scale from 0.0 upwards to 40.0. At the highest range, theta could be considered to be in a pure state. It would be a clear, even-flowing river. It would be reason at its highest. It would be complete rationality. It would be complete reality. It could accomplish complete communication in its own level. And it would be pure affinity.

[Here is a great example of how a small change in word results in a substantial change in meaning.]


1975: B1-41 2007: B1-48 [1989-no / 2001-yes]
Below 2.0, MEST and theta are at best turbulently united. Above, they are united more and more smoothly as they rise up the scale, the MEST more and more under the influence of theta, the theta more and more able to do things with the MEST. Below 2.0, MEST and theta are at best turbulently united.

They, however, do not greatly retain the enturbulence, and as soon as they are free from such -an entheta environment they restore immediately to a cleared state. Further, they do not sink very far down the tone scale.
They, however, do not greatly retain the enturbulence and as soon as they are free from such an entheta environment, they restore immediately to a Cleared state. Further, they do not depress very far down the Tone Scale.

1975: B1-46 2007: B1-53 [1989-no / 2001-no]
Seventh: the urge of theta to survive, the urge of the individual to promote the survival of theta and to survive through the survival of theta.

Any of these dynamics can be broken down into the three component parts of affinity, communication, and reality.
SEVENTH: the urge of theta to survive, the urge of the individual to promote the survival of theta and to survive through the survival of theta.

EIGHT: the urge toward survival through the Supreme Being. The number eight, laid on its side, gives us the symbol for infinity.

1975: B1-47 2007: B1-54 [1989-no / 2001-no]
The seventh dynamic would be that of theta itself, which is composed in its component parts, according to our postulates, of affinity, reality, and communication.
[the chapter ends here]
The Seventh Dynamic would be that of theta itself, which is composed in its component parts, according to our postulates, of affinity, reality and communication.

The Eighth Dynamic would be the dynamic of the Supreme Being, or the Creator. That would be God. One could consider that God created the physical universe and the theta universe.
[the chapter ends here]

[The two sentences defining the Eighth Dynamic were not written by L. Ron Hubbard. This text does not even appear in 2001 altered edition. How exactly does one survive “through” the Supreme Being? And in the second sentence “One could consider...” - this sounds completely arbitrary. One can consider many things – they do not suddenly become formal definitions of key terms in the science of Dianetics!

The ONLY place where a definition for the Eighth Dynamic appears in the original text of Science of Survival is in the Publisher's Introduction – the very section that was not included in either 2001 or 2007 altered versions of the book. The definition went as follows:
1975: xi) Dynamic eight is the urge toward survival as a part of or ward of a Supreme Being. The number eight, laid on its side, gives us the symbol -∞- for infinity.

Even a more precise definition of the Eighth Dynamic is given in the original Fundamentals of Thought book:
1975: 38) “THE EIGHTH DYNAMIC — is the urge toward existence as Infinity. This is also identified as the Supreme Being. It is carefully observed here that the science of Scientology does not intrude into the Dynamic of the Supreme Being. This is called the Eighth Dynamic because the symbol of infinity stood upright makes the numeral “8”. This can be called the INFINITY or GOD DYNAMIC.”

Note, the sentence in bold does not appear in the corresponding text of 2007 edition of Fundamentals of Thought. For more information on alterations in this book, see a Fundamentals of Thought Alteration Report.]


CHAPTER SEVEN (COLUMN F – Emotion)


1975: B1-53 2007: B1-61 [1989-no / 2001-yes]
In running secondary engrams, or painful emotion, the auditor must develop considerable skill. One cannot, for instance, bluntly demand grief; nor can one bluntly demand fear. Skill and tact are required to reach the necessary incident to resolve the case. In running secondary engrams or painful emotion, the auditor must develop considerable skill. One cannot, for instance, bluntly demand grief. Nor can one bluntly demand fear. Considerable skill and tact are required to contact the necessary incident to resolve the case.

[Here is a perfect example of how a skilled use of a semicolon demonstrating author's extensive experience as a writer was “corrected” by replacing it with a period which results in poor grammar and an unpleasant interruption of the smooth flow of author's thought.]


1975: B1-54 2007: B1-61 [1989-yes / 2001-yes]
If one could run off a case all painful emotion—all unexpressed resentment, anger, fear, grief, and apathy— one would have a dianetic release whether he touched physical pain engrams or not. If one could run off from a case all painful emotion— all expressed resentment, anger, fear, grief and apathy— one would have a Dianetic Release whether he touched physical pain engrams or not.

[How is this for a "correction"?]


CHAPTER EIGHT (COLUMN G – Affinity)


1975: B1-56 2007: B1-64 [1989-no / 2001-no]
One commonly finds this in children, who when growing older and receiving rejections and rebuffs, first from one or two people and then from many, will gradually experience the blunting of their affinity. One commonly finds this in children, who then growing older and receiving rejections and rebuffs, first from one or two people and then from many, will gradually experience the blunting of their affinity.

Around 2.5 the individual begins to neglect his own person, or people in general. Around 2.5 the individual begins to neglect persons or people in general.

[Here “his own person” means himself.]


1975: B1-57 2007: B1-65 [1989-yes / 2001-yes]
For instance, the rejected sweetheart reaching this level of grief may invent all manner of odd and peculiar incidents of cruelty on the part of the last lover in order to win the sympathy of those around her. For instance, the rejected sweetheart, reaching this level of grief, may invent all manner of odd and peculiar incidents of cruelty on the part of the past lover in order to win the sympathy of those around her.

[Notice how replacing “past” for “last” noticeably reduces clarity of the sentence.]


1975: B1-57 2007: B1-65 [1989-no / 2001-yes]
The auditor has a handy measuring stick with the affinity scale, since he can, by observing the pre-clear, establish the position of the pre-clear on the chart. Further, by watching pre-clear’s attitude toward people or groups he can see the improvement of the relations of the pre-clear with others and, he can see the gradual rise in tone of the case. The auditor has a handy measuring stick with the affinity scale, since he can, by observing the preclear, establish the preclear’s attitude toward people or groups and discover the position of the preclear on the chart. Further, by watching the relations of the preclear with others improve, he can see the gradual rise in tone of the case.

[How is this for generating some confusion which is already present in 2001 edition? Hey, at least “rise” was not changed to “raise” in this sentence.]


CHAPTER NINE (Communication and Reality)


1975: B1-59 2007: B1-69 [1989-no / 2001-no]
It might be said that we have potentially a sensory reception mechanism for every type of sense message which can be radiated or delivered to us from the physical universe, and from the theta universe.

1975: B1-63 2007: B1-73 [1989-no / 2001-no]
When a man is unable to contact the reality of the present or appreciate it, and when he cannot compute his own future and act upon that computation, that man is considered in varying degrees neurotic or psychotic.

CHAPTER TEN (COLUMN H – Sonic)


1975: B1-66 2007: B1-76 [1989-no / 2001-yes]
The case may have, however, so little sonic shut-off, valence trouble, and charge that clear sonic, just as it was heard in the first place, is available as the person travels on the time track, as well as near present time. The case may have, however, so little sonic shut-off, valence trouble and charge that clear sonic (just as it was heard in the first place) is available as the person travels on the time track, as well as in near-present time.

1975: B1-67 2007: B1-77 [1989-no / 2001-yes]
These are very easy to spot, however, since dub-in sonic usually is inane. These are very easy to spot, however, since dub-in sonic usually is inane and does not make sense.

[“inane” already means that it “does not make sense” according to the very definition of the word.]


1975: B1-67 2007: B1-77 [1989-no / 2001-yes]
The dub-in sonic case, after it has been worked for a short time, can be expected to lose the dub-in, once the circuit causing it is contacted or when the tone of the case rises. A non-sonic case results.
The dub-in sonic case, after it has been worked for a short time, can be expected to lose the dub-in. Once the circuit causing it is contacted, a non-sonic case results.

[In addition to a missing phrase, notice how a change in punctuation from a comma to a period results in a loss of meaning: a clear connection between losing a dub-in through contacting the circuit that is causing it is lost.]


1975: B1-69 2007: B1-79 [1989-no / 2001-yes]
This has misled practitioners and authorities in the past into believing that sonic recall was only to be found in idiots and morons, an entire falsity based on limited observation. This has misled practitioners of the healing arts in the past to believe that sonic recall was only to be found in idiots and morons— an entire falsity based on limited observation.

1975: B1-69 2007: B1-80 [1989-no / 2001-yes]
The thinking on this subject in the past has been entirely too short. The strange belief has been held in the past that a great deal of aberration meant a great deal of thrust and drive and, therefore, that an individual who was neurotic could be expected to perform in the arts and in other directions m ore ably than a person who was sane. The thinking on this subject in the past has been entirely too short. The observation has been, in past schools, that a great deal of aberration meant a great deal of thrust and drive and, therefore, that an individual who was neurotic could be expected to perform in the arts and in other directions more ably than a person who was sane.

[“Belief” and “observation” are totally different concepts!]


1975: B1-71 2007: B1-82 [1989-yes / 2001-yes]
The running of future pleasure moments sometimes tunes up the perceptics. These are actually imaginary incidents, so far as can be told. The tone of the individual goes up when running moments of pleasure, and so when moments of pleasure in the future are imagined, the tone of any individual may be expected to rise. The running of future pleasure moments sometimes tunes up the perceptics. These are actually imaginary incidents, so far as can be told. The tone of the individual goes up when running moments of pleasure and so when moments of pleasure existing in the past are run or when moments of pleasure in the future are imagined, the tone of any individual may be expected to rise.

[Looks like someone was getting confused here – a portion of the sentence “The tone of the individual goes up when running moments of pleasure” already communicated the fact that one's tone goes up from running “moments of pleasure existing in the past.” It does not need to be repeated in another arbitrarily added portion of text in a sentence.]


CHAPTER ELEVEN (COLUMN I – Visio)


1975: B1-75 2007: B1-86 [1989-no / 2001-yes]
Such people ordinarily “run” (undergo processing) in Dianetics quite noisily and are called screamers. Such people ordinarily run in Dianetics quite noisily and are called “screamers.”

[Without clarifying definition in parenthesis, “run” could definitely be misunderstood in 2007 text.]

In a case which has many valence shifters, affinity, reality and communication secondaries will bring about a chronic exteriorized visio. In a case which has many valence shifters, affinity, reality and communication secondaries will bring about a chronic exteriorized visio case.



CHAPTER TWELVE (COLUMN J – Somatics)


1975: B1-79 2007: B1-91 [1989-no / 2001-yes]
The word somatic means, actually, bodily or physical. Because the word pain is restimulative, and because the word pain has in the past led to a confusion between physical pain and mental pain, the word somatic is used in Dianetics to denote physical pain or discomfort of any kind. It can mean actual pain, such as that caused by a cut or a blow; or it can mean discomfort, as from heat or cold; it can mean itching— in short, anything physically uncomfortable. It does not include mental discomfort such as grief. The word somatic means, actually, “bodily or physical.” Because the word pain is restimulative and because the word pain has in the past led to a confusion between physical pain and mental pain, the word somatic is used, in Dianetics, to denote physical pain or discomfort of any kind. It can mean actual pain such as that caused by a cut or a blow. Or it can mean discomfort as from heat or cold. It can mean itching. In short, anything physically uncomfortable. It does not include mental discomfort such as grief, which would be mis-emotion.

[Grief is not always a mis-emotion. It is only a mis-emotion when it is not appropriate to any given circumstances. Also, notice how “correcting” punctuations went to the extent of resulting in INCORRECT GRAMMAR. “In short, anything physically uncomfortable.” is not a proper sentence since it does not contain a predicate which in itself must contain a verb – see any basic grammar materials for clarification.]


1975: B1-83 2007: B1-95 [1989-no / 2001-yes]
Around 1.1, the heavily occluded case will have no somatics available. The auditor must here work solely for the discharge of locks and secondaries before he can find somatics on the case. In the less occluded case, however, some extremely light somatics will be found available. Around 1.1 the heavily occluded case will have no somatics available. The auditor must here work solely for the discharge of locks and secondaries before he can find somatics on the case. In the less occluded case, however, some light somatics will be found available.

[The word “extremely” was eliminated.]


1975: B1-83 2007: B1-95 [1989-no / 2001-yes]
The auditor should very thoroughly recognize somatics for what they are—the physical pain of past injuries. He should recognize, further, that it is the somatic, in the first place, which makes locks and secondaries possible. And he must further realize that somatics are buried beneath anaten and mis-emotion, when these are present. He must not believe, however, that just because somatics make locks and secondaries possible, his primary mission is to run somatics off the case, but where somatics are not easily available he must be very chary of trying to find them, and should devote himself to locks and secondaries rather than somatics. The auditor should very thoroughly recognize, then, somatics for what they are: the physical pain of past injuries. He should recognize further that it is the somatic, in the first place, which makes locks and secondaries possible. And he must further realize that somatics are buried beneath anaten and mis-emotion, when these are present. He must not believe, however, that just because somatics make locks and secondaries possible, his primary mission is to run somatics off the case. Of course, he is trying to get the physical pain engrams off the case. But where somatics are not easily available, he must be very chary of trying to find them and should devote himself to locks and secondaries rather than somatics.

[The added sentence definitely jumps out like something that just doesn't belong, and indeed it was not there in the original text.]

[Who added this sentence?]


1975: B1-108 2007: B1-124 [1989-yes / 2001-yes]
By charge, of course, is meant anger, fear, grief, or apathy contained as mis-emotion in the case. This form of entheta (there is other entheta, in the form of communication and reality secondaries, as well as mis-emotion secondaries) charges up the track so much that the action phrases act. The charge must be very heavy on a case before engram action phrases— action phrases contained in engrams themselves— can be active. By charge, of course, is meant anger, fear, grief or apathy (mis-emotion) contained in the case. This form of entheta (there is other entheta, in the form of communication and reality secondaries, as well as mis-emotion secondaries) charges up the track so much that the action phrases become very active. It is charge which makes action phrases act. The charge must be very heavy on a case before engram action phrases (action phrases contained in engrams themselves) can be active.

[Here again someone decided to add one's own “clarification” by essentially paraphrasing what was already said in the previous sentence.]

This does not mean that a Zulu who has been cleared of all of his engrams would not continue to eat missionaries if he were a cannibal by education; but it does mean that he would be as rational as possible about eating missionaries; further, it would be easier to re-educate him about eating missionaries if he were a clear. This does not mean that a primitive who had been cleared of all of his engrams would not continue to eat missionaries if he were a cannibal by education. But it does mean that he would be as rational as possible about eating missionaries. Further, it would be easier to re-educate him about eating missionaries if he were a Clear.

1975: B1-111 2007: B1-127 [1989-no / 2001-yes]
Much more could be written about human behavior and about the engram as the cause of aberrated behaviour, but what the auditor wishes to know is how to audit his pre-clear and how to find his pre-clear on this chart so that he will know what type of entheta to address in the case, whether to run engrams, secondaries, or locks, and how to run them. Much could be written about human behavior and about the engram as the cause of aberrated behavior, but this is a book about auditing. What the auditor wishes to know is how to audit his preclear and how to find his preclear on this chart so that he will know what type of entheta to address in the case, whether to run engrams, secondaries or locks, and how to run them.

[Quite obviously, this book is not just about auditing. This additional phrase is completely inappropriate.]


CHAPTER EIGHTEEN (COLUMN P – Sexual Behaviour, Attitude Toward Children)


1975: B1-114 2007: B1-132 [1989-no / 2001-yes]
There is considerable confusion in the American and European cultures about sex; since there was so much perversion and promiscuity and maltreatment of children the erroneous conclusion was reached that the remedy for this lay in further regulation; whereas, in reality, it was the regulation which caused the derangement of the dynamic. There is considerable confusion in the American and European cultures about sex, since there was so much perversion and promiscuity and maltreatment of children that the erroneous conclusion was reached that the remedy for this lay in further regulation, whereas, in reality, it was the regulation which caused the derangement of the dynamic.

[The insertion of “that” is completely inappropriate.]


1975: B1-115 2007: B1-132 [1989-yes / 2001-yes]
It will be noted, in observing the behaviour of human beings, and on this chart of the tone scale, that promiscuity, perversion, sadism, and irregular practices fall far down the line. Free Love falls, also, in this very low band; since man is relatively monogamous and since it is non-survival not to have a well ordered system for the creation and upbringing of children, by families. A society which falls into this 1.1 band of the tone scale can be expected to abuse sex, to be promiscuous, to misuse and maltreat children, and to act, in short, much in the way current cultures are acting. It is of vital importance, if one wishes to stop immorality, and the abuse of children, to de-aberrate this dynamic for the whole group of the society, to say nothing of individuals. It will be noted in observing the behavior of human beings and on this chart of the Tone Scale that promiscuity, perversion, sadism and irregular practices fall far down the line.

It is of vital importance, if one wishes to stop immorality, Free Love and the abuse of children, to de-aberrate this dynamic for the whole group of the society, to say nothing of individuals.

[To stop Free Love sounds quite nonsenical, and it was already included in the concept of immorality according to the logic in this paragraph.]


1975: B1-115 2007: B1-133 [1989-yes / 2001-yes]
At 1.1 on the tone scale we enter the area of the most vicious reversal of the second dynamic. Here we have promiscuity, perversion, sadism, and irregular practices. We have no enjoyment of the sex act, but a hectic anxiety about it. The sex act cannot truly be enjoyed whether performed regularly or irregularly. Here is Free Love, easy marriage and quick divorce, and general sexual disaster. At 1.1 on the Tone Scale we enter the area of the most vicious reversal of the Second Dynamic. Here we have promiscuity, perversion, sadism and irregular practices. We have here no enjoyment of the sex act, actually, but a hectic anxiety about it. The sex act cannot truly be enjoyed whether performed regularly or irregularly. Here is the harlot, the pervert, the unfaithful wife, Free Love, easy marriage and quick divorce and general sexual disaster.

[Notice how an addition of degrading labels shifts the emphasis from aberrated conduct at this tone level (which can be remedied with processing) to a sort of hatred of the actual people that may reside in this band. This unwelcome addition is already present in 2001 edition on page 145.]


CHAPTER NINETEEN (COLUMN Q – Command Over Environment)


1975: B1-123 2007: B1-141 [1989-no / 2001-yes]
In today’s world, the next stop down the tone scale politically is the subversive, who belongs in the 1.1 to 1.3 bracket. Most theoretical subversion pretends to be very high on the tone scale, and so has had its appeal to the liberally inclined individual; but there is a wide gap between theory and practice, and the unthinking person confuses the theory with the practice. He finds himself keeping company with 1.1’s. Communication lines are cut; affinities are flagrantly used and perverted; reality is twisted; the level of truth as seen in subversive propaganda, compares with lowest gossip; and the treatment of human beings is without any regard to the respect an individual human being should have.

Subversion receives its main support from such individuals as lie in the vicinity of 1.1, and the reason it gains so many volunteer agents in lands which it wishes to overrun lies in the desire of the 1.1 to have good cause and reason to flout flagrantly and place himself “above” existing morals and the laws of the land in which he operates. He gains through his warped philosophy a very fine excuse to believe himself above such things as law and decency, and it is very possibly this appeal alone which brings so many recruits to the ranks of subversive organizations.
In today's world, the next stop down the Tone Scale, politically, is the subversive, who belongs in the 1.1 to 1.3 bracket. Most theoretical subversion pretends to be very high on the Tone Scale and so has had its appeal to the liberally inclined individual. But there is a wide gap between theoretical and destructive liberalism, and the unthinking liberal confuses the theory with the practice. He finds himself keeping company with 1.1s, since an inspection of any brand of politics which oversweeps the world because of the general apathy of societies shows that it falls exactly into this position on the scale: communication lines are cut; affinities are flagrantly used and perverted; reality is twisted; the level of cabal, as seen in hate propaganda, compares with lowest gossip; and the treatment of human beings is without any regard to the respect an individual human being should have. Psychometry on subversives places them uniformly in this 1.1 bracket. They have no respect for the wit and sanity of anyone. They hold promiscuity as a high virtue. They have no belief in family. They are about as safe to have for friends as an adder—but probably this is unfair to the honest adder.

Subversion receives its main support from such individuals as lie in the vicinity of 1.1. And the reason it gains so many volunteer agents in lands which it wishes to overrun, lies in the desire of the 1.1 to have “good cause” and “reason” to flaunt flagrantly and place himself “above” existing morals and the laws of the land in which he operates. He gains, through his warped philosophy, a very fine excuse to believe himself above such things as law and decency. And it is very possibly this appeal alone which brings so many recruits to ruthless politics.

[How is this for an example of a 1.1 (subversive) at work? Notice how a great amount of hatred was (covertly) interjected into this text with the sentence on “Psychometry” and the following hateful generalizations with “They” which is in itself a vivid example of an expressed anti-social characteristic fully described in “Introduction to Scientology” book. These alterations can already be found in 2001 edition on pages 153 and 154.]


CHAPTER TWENTY (COLUMN R – Actual Worth To Society Compared To Apparent Worth)


1975: B1-125 2007: B1-145 [1989-no / 2001-yes]
When it becomes perverted, men of money begin to be damned by a society and are sought out as the scapegoats for all its ills; whereas a goodly number of them are the very pivots on which the society is turning. Subversive political movements appeal to the indigence and poverty which is the lot, unfortunately, of a majority of populaces in these days of poorly advanced culture by promising to murder every man of property once a land is taken. The whole cult of anti-Capitalism is something less than a sound philosophic postulate and rather more than a gross appeal to those who have no property and no hope of attaining any.

1975: B1-126 2007: B1-146 [1989-no / 2001-yes]
In this column on the chart, anyone, regardless of his potential value, below the line of 2.0 as evaluated by other columns, has a negative value to the society. Anyone above this line goes in a positive direction. In this column on the chart, anyone (regardless of his potential value) below the line of 2.0, as evaluated by other columns, has a negative value to the society. Anyone above this line goes from zero value upward in a positive direction.

[It clearly stated in the previous sentence that it's from 2.0 not from “zero value.”]


CHAPTER TWENTY-ONE (COLUMN S – Ethic Level)


NONE PRESENTED



CHAPTER TWENTY-TWO (COLUMN T – The Handling of Truth)


1975: B1-133 2007: B1-155 [1989-no / 2001-no]
The metaphysician was concerned with absolute truth and considered that it transcended the limits of human experience. The metaphysician was concerned with Absolute Truth and considered that it transcended the limits of human experience. The social orders of his day must have been not much better than our own.

[Notice a stark change in meaning of the phrase “absolute truth” when it is capitalized. There is no such thing as “Absolute Truth” that can be uniquely identified – it is not a proper noun and therefore should not be capitalized.]


1975: B1-133 2007: B1-155 [1989-no / 2001-yes]
Few mothers there are who do not have untruths and imaginative postulates thoroughly confused, thus suppressing the necessary imaginative instincts of the child and, in fact, burdening the child with a confusion about the truth itself. Few mothers there are who do not have untruths and imaginative postulates thoroughly confused, thus suppressing the necessary imaginative instincts of the child and giving the child, in fact, a confusion about the truth itself.

1975: B1-133 2007: B1-155 [1989-no / 2001-yes]
There is an ethic about the handling of truth. While it may be true that something is undesirable or that a person is bad, if it serves no good purpose to make the statement, the issuance of this “truth” is in reality the establishing of an entheta line. There is an ethic about the handling of truth. While it may be true that something is destructive or that a person is bad, if it serves no purpose to make the statement, the issuance of this “truth” is in reality the establishing of an entheta line.

1975: B1-134 2007: B1-156 [1989-no / 2001-yes]
In common human experience we all know something about the truth and we know that we cannot deal in a black and white breakdown between the truth and lies. Truth is concerned in the issuance and acceptance of data about facts. Some people favour constructive facts; some favour facts which are not so constructive; some prefer to twist facts; some prefer to hide facts; and some prefer to lie about facts. In common human experience, we all know something about the truth and that we cannot deal in a black and white breakdown between the truth and lies. Truth is concerned in the issuance and acceptance of facts. Some people favor truthful facts, some favor facts which are not so truthful, some prefer to twist facts, some prefer to hide facts and some prefer to lie about facts.

[Also, note that the use of a semicolon is far more appropriate in this case since it requires a longer pause and is used with a list of related sentences where there is no coordinating conjunction expect at the very end (i.e. “and some prefer...”)]


1975: B1-135 2007: B1-157 [1989-no / 2001-yes]
The auditor can locate his pre-clear on the tone scale simply by discovering the type of fact which the pre-clear likes best, or by discovering what the pre-clear does with facts. The auditor can do psychometry on his preclear and locate him on the Tone Scale simply by discovering the type of fact which the preclear likes best or by discovering what the preclear does with facts.

[Here is a serious alteration in applying data presented in this chapter – notice how suggesting an auditor performs psychometry is in conflict with the following portion of the sentence stating that the auditor can locate pre-clear on the tone scale “simply by discovering the type of fact which the preclear likes best.” This alteration is in 2001 edition as well on page 169.]


1975: B1-135 2007: B1-157 [1989-no / 2001-yes]
At 3.0 we begin to get an onset of conservatism, a cautiousness about receiving or uttering truths, and in our society a short-sighted programme of social lying in order to “avoid hurting people’s feelings.” At 3.0 we begin to get an onset of conservatism, a cautiousness about receiving or uttering truths, and a shortsighted program of social lying in order to “avoid hurting people’s feelings.”

[Ron Hubbard's emphasis on “our society” is quite correct, since in many non-English speaking cultures there is no social practice of trying to “avoid hurting people's feelings.”]


1975: B1-135 2007: B1-158 [1989-no / 2001-yes]
At 2.5 we have insincerity and carelessness of facts. The modern American newspaper exemplifies this level on the tone scale. At 2.5 we have insincerity and carelessness of facts. The modern American newspaper exemplifies this level on the Tone Scale (or perhaps, the various magazines which could be named).
1975: B1-137 2007: B1-159 [1989-no / 2001-yes]
The 0.5 may be given sympathy, but not believed. The 0.5 may be given sympathy, but never believed.

1975: B1-137 2007: B1-159 [1989-no / 2001-yes]
He is an everthirsty sponge for sympathy, and he is a chronic potential suicide. He is an unsaturable sponge for sympathy and he is a chronic potential suicide.

[Also notice where it should have been a comma, the comma was removed.]


CHAPTER TWENTY-THREE (COLUMN U – Courage Level)


1975: B1-140 2007: B1-163 [1989-no / 2001-yes]
Courage level has a great deal to do with auditing. The auditor who has a low courage level is apt to let the pre-clear get into such a thing as a fear or terror engram and, justifying the action as sympathy, let the pre-clear out without having run the incident. This will most rapidly and certainly snarl the case. The auditor of low courage level who encounters for the first time a “screamer” and who fails to persevere in the face of the obvious and shrill agony of the pre-clear will make the pre-clear very sick. So far as courage level is concerned in auditing, any auditor must have the courage to take anything from the pre-clear and run a pre-clear through anything without quailing. A coward has no business in the auditor’s chair, and if he is so placed, the pre-clear can expect to have his case ruined. Courage level has a great deal to do with auditing.

[This is strange. Nearly the same sentence was inserted in the middle of a paragraph.]


1975: B1-141 2007: B1-164 [1989-no / 2001-yes]
Shock and courage level are immediately connected. Shock and courage level are intimately connected.

[“Immediately” is a far more appropriate word to use in this sentence. Why was it changed to "intimately?" See formal definitions:

CHAPTER TWENTY-FOUR (COLUMN V – Ability To Handle Responsibility)


1975: B1-145 2007: B1-168 [1989-no / 2001-yes]
At tone 2.5, the individual is very careless and not trustworthy, although one may find that the individual takes good care of himself so far as his dress is concerned. He falls markedly short in his concept of what is required of him in order to maintain a high survival level. At Tone 2.5 the individual is very careless and not trustworthy, although one might find that the individual took good care of himself so far as his dress was concerned. He falls markedly short in his concept of what is required of him in order to maintain a high survival level.

[Notice how changing verbs into past tense now doesn't agree with the present tense in the following sentence.]


CHAPTER TWENTY-FIVE (COLUMN W – Persistence On A Given Course)


1975: B1-148 2007: B1-171 [1989-no / 2001-yes]
The individual who has sufficient theta endowment and sufficient structural ability to keep his free theta and his enturbulated theta relatively separate may have a good persistence level even when the factors and conditions in his environment are such that they continually hammer him away from his given course of action. The individual who has sufficient theta endowment and sufficient structural ability to keep his free theta and his enturbulated theta relatively separate may (but not always) have a good persistence level even when the factors and conditions in his environment are such that they continually hammer him away from his given course of action.

1975: B1-148 2007: B1-171 [1989-no / 2001-yes]
The potential psychotic, on the other hand, is not very apt to have a goal in the first place but is apt to follow any course which comes into view, and then only so long as no environmental factor enters to make him deviate from that course.
The potential psychotic, on the other hand, is not very apt to have a goal in the first place, but is apt to follow any goal which comes into view and then only so long as no environmental factor enters to make him deviate from that course.

[Now, it was already stated that a potential psychotic “is not very apt to have a goal” so to then state that he “is apt to follow any goal” is quite confusing to say the least.]


1975: B1-149 2007: B1-172 [1989-no / 2001-yes]
The individual may begin with a highly enthusiastic thrust and may through experience become less active and open about his creative and constructive efforts and may assume conservatism and caution. The individual may begin with a high enthusiastic thrust and may, through experience, become less blunt and open about his creative and constructive efforts and may assume conservatism and caution.
1975: B1-149 2007: B1-173 [1989-no / 2001-yes]
When a man has been defeated too often, and too many of his dreams have been broken, he sinks into the apathy band and thereafter no longer struggles toward his goal. When a man has been defeated too often, when too many of his dreams have been broken, he sinks into the apathy band and thereafter no longer struggles toward his goal.

1975: B1-150 2007: B1-173 [1989-no / 2001-yes]
It is an observed fact that an individual’s attitude toward Dianetics and an individual’s attitude toward life in general are parallel. When the auditor takes a pre-clear who is at the apathy level, all too common in this present social order, he can expect the pre-clear to depend exclusively on the auditor for any persistence as to the processing of the case. The auditor must take the responsibility of doing the processing. It is an observed fact that an individual’s attitude toward Dianetics and an individual’s attitude toward life in general are parallel. The better Dianetic processing can approximate the mechanics of the mind, the better that processing is: this is another parallel.

When the auditor takes a preclear who is in the apathy level all too common in this present social order, he can expect the preclear to depend exclusively on the auditor for any persistence as to the processing of the case. The auditor, incidentally, must take the responsibility of doing the processing.

[An auditor taking responsibility for processing is not an “incidental” factor – it is at the foundation of the entire practice! Also, notice how a very much needed comma was dropped reducing clarity of the sentence. ]


CHAPTER TWENTY-SIX (COLUMN X – Literalness With Which Statements Or Remarks Are Received)


1975: B1-153 2007: B1-177 [1989-no / 2001-yes]
Rationalization is, in essence, differentiation; reacting is, in essence, identification. Rationalizing is, in essence, differentiation. Reacting is, in essence, identification.

[Notice how replacing the semicolon with a period introduces a very unpleasant interruption in a continuous flow of the communicated concept.]



CHAPTER TWENTY-SEVEN (COLUMN Y – Method Used By Subject To Handle Others)


1975: B1-155 2007: B1-181 [1989-no / 2001-yes]
The methods of handling others could be assigned to three general categories. The highest category would be one of enhancement, where the individual seeks by example and good reasoning to lift the level of those around him to the point where they will partake of the projects of living with him. This would extend from 4.0 down to 3.0. The second category would be that of punishment drive, or domination. Here the individual uses alarm, threats, and the general promise of pain unless compliance is given by the others around him. This area extends from 2.0 to around 1.3. The third category is that of nullification, wherein the individual seeks to minimize individuals, to be more than they and so to be able to control them. This category would rather see a man sick than well, because sick men are less dangerous than well men according to the "thinking” that takes place in this band.

The unfortunate part of the conduct of the lower levels of the tone scale toward others is that it has as its invariable end the lowering of the tone of the family, associates, friends, and society of the subject. Yet the subject by no reason or education below the point of 2.0 could use any other means. Forcing the subject to use other means only drives him down the tone scale, and as he descends he uses the means of the lower levels to which he sinks.

Three other names for these areas would be enhancement, domination and nullification.

The unfortunate part of the conduct of the lower levels of the Tone Scale toward others is that it has as its invariable end the lowering of the tone of the family, associates, friends and society of the subject. Yet the subject by no reason or education (below the point 2.0) could use any other means, forcing the subject to use other means only drives him down the Tone Scale. And as he descends, he uses the means of the lower levels he attains.

[Notice how the added sentence introduces some confusion since it gives not “other” but the same names that were already mentioned, except for “domination” since that word was dropped where “punishment drive” was first brought up in 2007 text. Also, notice how replacing a period with a comma in “...means. Forcing...” results in improper grammatical structure. And, obviously, one does not “attain” lower levels – he “sinks” there.]


1975: B1-156 2007: B1-183 [1989-no / 2001-yes]
The 3.5 in the vicinity of a 1.1 may find himself descending down the tone scale toward anger without any apparent reason. The 1.1’s efforts to nullify are so well veiled and so carefully calculated to annoy that no target is available to the reason of the 3.5. As reason fails, the 3.5, continually subjected to nullification which he cannot locate, will eventually become angry. The 3.5 in the vicinity of a 1.1 may find himself descending down the Tone Scale toward anger without any apparent reason. The 1.1's efforts to nullify are so well veiled and so carefully calculated to annoy that any target for correction or reason by the 3.5 is unavailable. And as reason fails, the 3.5, continually subjected to nullification which he cannot locate, will eventually become angry.

[And one wonders why there have been so many reports of aggression at the Church of Scientology. Look at who's in charge of it!]


1975: B1-160 2007: B1-186 [1989-no / 2001-yes]
At this level we have murder, by slow erosion, of individuals and the culture, each harmful action being masked with voluminous “reasoning.” At this level we have murder, by slow erosion of individuals and the culture, and the actions are masked with voluminous “reasoning.”

[David Miscavige is a prime example of this – providing “voluminous reasoning” for his covert destruction of L. Ron Hubbard's works.]


1975: B1-161 2007: B1-188 [1989-no / 2001-yes]
Hypnotism is used in some base religions, and is commonly employed in obsolete mental “therapies,” which should make plain the level of those on the tone scale. Hypnotism is used in some base religions and is commonly employed by old schools of mental healing, which should make plain the level of these cults on the Tone Scale.
1975: B1-162 2007: B1-189 [1989-no / 2001-yes]
These institutions often use sedatives, and yet one of the worst things that an individual who is in a disturbed state can be given is a sedative; it makes him quieter and less dangerous but it also makes him less able. These institutions often use sedatives and yet one of the worst things that an individual who is in a disturbed state can be given is a sedative. It makes him quieter and less dangerous, but it does not make him more able.

1975: B1-163 2007: B1-189 [1989-no / 2001-yes]
From 1.3 down to 0.6 we have the general area of the subversive, who promises a people freedom and equality and gives them a slaughter of their best minds and cultural institutions, to the end of a totalitarian dominance. Because subversion exists in this tone band, the subversive leader can use as his personnel only people in this tone band; if this tone band were to be removed from a society he would have no recruits From 1.3 down to 0.6 we have the general area of the subversive, who promises a people freedom and equality and gives them a slaughter of their best minds and cultural institutions, to the end of a totalitarian dominance. Because it exists in this tone band, the subversive leader can use as his personnel only people in this tone band. If this tone band were to be removed from a society, he would have no recruits.

[Having replaced “subversion” with “it” can make a reader conclude that “it” refers to “totalitarian dominance” just mentioned as opposed to “subversion.”]


1975: B1-164 2007: B1-190 [1989-no / 2001-yes]
Thus, immediately after a complete totalitarian conquest of a country we invariably witness an extensive slaughter of individuals. One can select with ease the individuals marked for liquidation in the consolidation of the conquest. The selection is not made according to the position the individual occupies but by his individualism, his strength, and his reasonableness, or by his continuing revolutionary desire not to conform to set and regimented patterns.

[“Solidation” is not even a word in Oxford Dictionary.]


1975: B1-164 2007: B1-190 [1989-no / 2001-no]
The 1.1 may take a 1.1 as a bedfellow and political mate and may form a 1.1 group, but this group has to continue to be faced by a strong and dangerous foe to remain consolidated. The 1.1 may take a 1.1 as a bedfellow and political mate and may take a 1.1 group, but this group has to continue to be faced by a strong and dangerous foe to remain consolidated.

1975: B1-165 2007: B1-192 [1989-no / 2001-yes]
The 1.1 will twist past experiences in the telling, reporting cruelty where there was only abruptness. The apathy case will declare all past kindnesses to have been the most sadistic cruelties and the cruelties to have been kindnesses. If the 1.1 is considered to have manifestations of one kind and motives and actions of an entirely different kind, then the apathy case is a direct reversal. The apathy case will declare all past kindnesses to have been the most sadistic cruelties and the cruelties to have been kindnesses.

[Here a sentence was changed entirely – obviously, the individual who was “correcting” this book did not want other people to be as clear on the nature of persons at this tone level.]

The apathy case talks about death, threatens personal death, and will actually attempt suicide.

Auditors, and indeed a society, not understanding the true motives of apathy are placed in considerable peril since a natural desire exists in the higher levels of the tone scale to aid and support one’s fellows. The apathy case is actually perverting and destroying this desire by inviting it toward unworthy causes.

1975: B1-167 2007: B1-194 [1989-no / 2001-yes]
As courage is absent, the apathy case will dodge any incident which contains real force, just as the apathy case will dodge any factor in the environment which contains real help or aid and will go inevitably toward environmental factors which are destructive. As courage is absent, the apathy case will dodge any incident which contains real impact, just as the apathy case will dodge any factor in the environment which contains real help or aid and will go inevitably toward environmental factors which are destructive.

1975: B1-168 2007: B1-195 [1989-no / 2001-yes]
And because a narrative can be given forth by the apathy case wild and alarming enough to justify his condition, one is often tempted to accept this propitiation as actual affinity, when actually it is an invitation to be killed.

One should be extremely chary of using any authoritarian or violent means on cases from 2.0 down, since such cases are very easily driven into the apathy level.

The auditor should be warned not to employ any authoritarian methods in processing. We in Dianetics are only interested in raising people on the tone scale. The auditor should be careful not to enturbulate persons below the 2.0 line any further than they already are, but should be as non-directive as possible. For, if the auditor permits his pre-clear to drop into apathy he has on his hands a much more difficult and much longer case than a 1.1 or a forthrightly howlingly angry 1.5.

The pretended death case has abandoned even trying to find any one menace and considers everything a menace. This state has the peculiarity of being unfixed. Possibly the most signal effect to rouse this case can be made by concentrating the attention of the individual upon a single and definite threat of death. Indeed, observing an honest and active source of death raises the necessity level and brings anyone up the tone scale at least for a brief time.

We are interested in Dianetics in what has been done to an individual, not what the individual has done. This is not an effort to escape or alter moral standards but is simply a statement of fact; the auditor who becomes interested in his pre-clear’s motives and makes evaluations of his pre-clear’s reasoning is not only wasting his time but is trying to perform authoritarian therapy.

By treating childhood alone, out of the mistaken reasoning that it was a highly aberrative period (an aberration which was planted by amateur philosophers and therapists half a century ago), one sends the pre-clear against the occluding force of the late locks and secondaries without giving him a chance to reduce them.

This is along the educational line and is best cleared up by picking up the instruction closest to present time and lock-scanning it thoroughly, then picking up an earlier period of instruction such as college, then picking up an earlier one such as high school, then an earlier one such as grammar school, and finally parental training.

The auditor would do well to examine his own general method of handling people with a highly critical eye and adjudicate for himself where his auditing is likely to lie on the tone scale, and by the educational process of knowing the consequences and knowing how to get results, simply raise his necessity level up to a point where he achieves a more desirable attitude, if he thinks one is necessary.

Two persons can co-audit each other, step by step up the tone scale, but unless a parity is maintained, one of them will suffer, and a good release or a clear will be impossible to attain— which is thought to be the difficulty so far experienced in Dianetics, where the making of clears is concerned.

BOOK TWO



CHAPTER ONE (The Basic Principles of Processing)


1975: B2-5 2007: B2-218
An interesting series of experiments recently done by the Foundation seems to bear out the theory that heightened reason-ability is contained in theta which has been newly recovered from an enturbulence with MEST.

1975: B2-8 2007: B2-221
Shifting the pre-clear to an unrestimulative environment permits him to “settle out,” which is to say, permits the temporarily enturbulated theta to disenturbulate and the “frozen” entheta to convert, in some minute quantity, to free theta. Shifting the preclear to an unrestimulative environment permits him to “settle out,” which is to say, permits entheta to settle down in his reactive mind and convert, in some small portion, to free theta.

1975: B2-9 2007: B2-223
Education might be said to be the process by which the individual is given the accumulated data of a long span of culture. It can, no less validly than personal experience, solve many of his problems. Free theta, confronted by too many problems, can, just by this, become enturbulated. Good education can in this way convert some of the entheta of an individual into theta, with a consequent rise on the tone scale.

CHAPTER TWO (The Auditor’s Code)


1975: B2-18 2007: B2-233
To produce these effects the auditor must embrace the auditor’s code and keep these principles as sacred as if they were the vows of priesthood. To produce these effects, the auditor must permit himself to be embraced by the Auditor’s Code and to keep these principles as sacred as if they were the vows of priesthood:

[Being “embraced by the Auditor’s Code” sounds quite nonsensical.]



CHAPTER THREE (The Mechanics of Aberration)


1975: B2-21 2007: B2-237
A description of pure theta acting in a harmonious control of MEST is to be found along the 4.0 band of the chart. Here we see theta with an affinity very high in all spheres of attraction, capable of high communication both perceptically and with ideas, and with a high sense and appreciation of reality. A description of pure theta acting in a harmonious control of MEST is to be found along the 4.0 band of the chart. Here we see theta as reasonable, persistent, responsible, with an affinity very high in all spheres of attraction, capable of high communication both “perceptically” and with ideas, and with a high sense and appreciation of reality.

[Word “perceptically” should not have been placed in quotations since the word is used in its literal meaning.]


1975: B2-22 2007: B2-238
MEST, which is to say the physical universe of matter, energy, space and time, is perceived by the theta of the organism through the various perceptions of sight, sound, motion, organic state, and so forth. MEST (which is to say, the physical universe of matter, energy, space and time) is perceived by the theta of the organism by the various perceptions of sight, sound, motion, organic sensation and so forth.

[Perceived THROUGH is correct as action is not performed by perceptions themselves, it is performed by theta through the various perceptions.]


1975: B2-29 2007: B2-246
The first time an engram is restimulated (and one may lie dormant for forty years without being restimulated) is called a key-in. A key-in is merely a special kind of lock, the first lock on a particular engram.

The secondary engram is enormously important. It is run exactly like a physical pain engram. The secondary stores such large quantities of entheta that remarkable results are often obtained by running one simple secondary engram. The secondary engram is enormously important. It is run exactly like a physical pain engram. If one could remove all the secondary engrams from a case without touching physical pain engrams, he would have a Release. The secondary stores such large quantities of entheta that remarkable results are often obtained by running one simple secondary engram.



CHAPTER FOUR (The Dynamics of Existence)


1975: B2-34 2007: B2-253
An act or conclusion is wrong to the degree that it is nonsurvival to the individual, future race, group, species, or life responsible for doing the act or making the conclusion. The most wrong a person can be on the first dynamic is dead. An act or conclusion is wrong to the degree that it is non-survival to the individual, future race, group, species or life responsible for doing the act or making the conclusion. The most wrong a person can be is dead.



CHAPTER FIVE (General Description of Processing)


1975: B2-37 2007: B2-256
The auditor tests out the perceptics of the pre-clear by simply asking the pre-clear to go back to a recent meal he has eaten or a recent pleasure moment and having him recount this moment over several times, not as a concept of the moment, but as if he were right on the scene doing again the things which he did before. The auditor tests out the perceptics of the preclear by simply asking the preclear to go back to a recent meal he has eaten or a recent pleasure moment and having him recount this moment over several times, not as a concept of the moment, but as if he were right on the scene doing the things again which were done before.

1975: B2-40 2007: B2-259
The wide-open case low on the tone scale has no feelings of responsibility toward self, future, or group, save aberrated ones. Persistence is so slight that any auditing errors can cause the case to withdraw from processing. The wide-open case low on the Tone Scale has no feeling of responsibility toward self, future or group, save aberrated ones. Persistence is so slight that any auditing errors can cause the case to withdraw from any processing.

[Ron Hubbard did not write "ANY processing" here.]


1975: B2-40 2007: B2-260
The male wide-open case is no less difficult and trying. The male wide-open case is no less difficult and trying, but (strangely enough) seems by observation to be far more persistent, either toward destruction or in efforts toward survival, than the female case.

[Where did this additional data come from?]


1975: B2-41 2007: B2-260
The auditor will have his problems with pre-clears who want attention but not processing. These pre-clears are automatically classified as below 2.0. This is the quickest chart location which can be done. The pre-clear who wants no kind of processing whatsoever, even though he understands some of the principles involved and knows they will not be harmful, and the pre-clear who wants no processing but to be hovered over are both headed toward succumb and will do their best to pull the auditor with them. The auditor should employ his ingenuity, if he will continue processing them. He should use very light methods and a catfoot approach, and he may be able to raise his pre-clear enough above 2.0 to cause a continuing direction toward survival. The auditor will have his problems with preclears who want attention but not processing. These preclears are automatically classifiable as below 2.0. This is the quickest chart location which can be done. The preclear who wants no kind of processing whatsoever (even though he understands some of the principles involved and knows they will not be harmful) and the preclear who wants no processing but to be hovered over are both headed toward succumb and will do their best to pull the auditor with them. As a “shooting and quick burial” for such people is frowned upon, at least at this time, the auditor should employ his ingenuity if he will continue processing them. He should use very light methods and a catfoot approach and he may be able to raise his preclear enough above 2.0 to cause a continuing direction toward survival.

[Where did “shooting and quick burial” phrase come from? Ron Hubbard did not write this, and this does not present him in a very favorable light to say the least. How does it even relate to the discussion of PROCESSING someone below 2.0?]


1975: B2-41 2007: B2-260 - 261
It should be borne in mind by the auditor when he is doing his inventory and when he is locating his pre-clear on the chart that people below 2.0 may not be immediately obvious. Their acceptance of processing may be only a method of securing attention. In some cases, the pre-clear’s entire educational background may have to be lock scanned before the pre-clear can feel any genuine desire for improvement. Entheta ideas picked up in high school, college, the army or a political movement may sit squarely in the way of any rise on the tone scale. It should be borne in mind by the auditor, when he is doing his inventory and when he is locating his preclear on the chart, that people below 2.0 may not be immediately obvious. Their acceptance of processing may be only a method of securing attention. However, the auditor by using light, routine methods can produce the necessary rise on the Tone Scale to get the case to resolve itself.

[In this instance whole two sentences were replaced with an entirely different one.]


1975: B2-44 2007: B2-264
The auditor should never confuse his role with psychotherapy or with medicine. The medical doctor is important in the society. Bacteria are bacteria. Bruises, contusions, broken bones, and obstetrics will be with us for a long while. The auditor, because he can sweep aside with ease most of the manifestations which were formerly called psychosomatic illnesses, should not discount the reality of many kinds of physical disorders. The auditor is trying to bring the individual up the tone scale. Incidentally, this by-passes the individual around the majority of physical troubles and complexes and obsessions, but it does not obviate the occasional necessity of medical treatment for the pre-clear, and it unfortunately does not obviate the institutionalization of the obviously insane, no matter what Dianetics can do for these people. The auditor, then, should work in close union with medical doctors, helping them to understand what he is doing and helping them to understand Dianetics, and trying to educate medical doctors into planting fewer and lighter engrams.

In days past, antiquated therapies occasionally triggered a manic engram. Not knowing about the cause of human aberration, the therapists were content to assume that this sudden elation of the patient was indicative of an advance. In olden times, antiquated therapies occasionally triggered a manic engram. Not knowing about the cause of human aberration, they were content to assume that this sudden elation of the patient was indicative of an advance.

[Here, a noun “therapists” was replaced with a pronoun “they,” but since “therapists” was not mentioned in any immediate earlier text, “they” would be connected to “antiquated therapies” instead.]


1975: B2-46 2007: B2-266
The auditor will behold in the progress of any case, while it is returned on the time track, some alarming manifestations. The auditor will behold in the progress of any case, certainly while it is returned on the time track, some alarming manifestations.

[The inserted word “certainly” is completely out of place in this sentence.]


1975: B2-46 2007: B2-266
None of these manifestations should worry the auditor. The only way the auditor can harm the pre-clear is to refrain from running out what has been contacted. None of these manifestations should worry the auditor. The only way the auditor can harm the preclear is to refrain from running off what has been contacted.

CHAPTER SIX (COLUMN AB – Present Time)


1975: B2-52 2007: B2-273
It also happens occasionally that a pre-clear not too heavily charged with entheta will be stuck in an engram exactly on the point of the only sonic he will get on the track and the only visio he will get on the track. It also occasionally happens that a preclear, not too heavily charged by entheta, will be stuck in an engram exactly on the point of the only sonic he will get on the track and the only visio he will get on the track.

There is no argument concerning the existence of prenatals. They have been known for the past thirty years, have been adequately proven by experiment at Rutgers University. They have been known for the past thirty years and have been adequately proven by experiments at Rutgers University and are so common in Dianetics that one considers the practitioner who questions them rather poorly read on his own literature.

1975: B2-57 2007: B2-279
This indicates a rather heavily charged case, and it is the charge itself which should be addressed, which is to say simply converting entheta to theta rather than attacking the specific engram which is doing the calling back. This indicates a rather heavily charged case and it is the charge itself which should be addressed, which is to say, simply converting entheta to theta, rather than the specific engram which is doing the calling back.

[Word “attacking” was dropped leaving a “hole” in the sentence.]

One could not actually be stuck in present time but is stuck somewhere on the track in an incident which carries with it the illusion that it is present time. No one could actually be stuck in present time, but is stuck somewhere on the track in an incident which carries with it the illusion that it is present time.

1975: B2-58 2007: B2-280
Getting the pre-clear to recall by straight memory the incident where he is stuck on the track is sometimes sufficient to get him to return to present time. One case was under processing many months, for an hour or two a week, by a very poor auditor. This case was hung up in a serious operation at the age of thirty-one. Getting the preclear to recall, by Straight Memory, the incident where he is stuck on the track is sometimes sufficient to get him to return to present time. However, any preclear who is out of present time and who has to be coaxed into a memory of where he is stuck on the track is usually a rather highly charged case and the auditor should generally concern himself with the conversion of entheta to theta, rather than the location of the actual incident. One case was under processing, by a rather poor auditor, for many months, for an hour or two a week. This case was hung up in a serious operation at the age of thirty-one.

[“Recall by straight memory” is a continuous phrase that did not need to be interrupted by commas. The added sentence may be an incorrect advice. Who added all these new sentences into the book?]


CHAPTER SEVEN (COLUMN AC – Straight Memory)


1975: B2-64 2007: B2-287
The pre-clear using straight memory very thoroughly associates the past event with the present-time environment, and he evaluates the past event in terms of the present-time environment. The preclear, using Straight Memory, very thoroughly associates the past event in terms of the present time environment.

1975: B2-64 2007: B2-288
Straight memory was developed in Dianetics on the basis that if one knew the fundamental mechanical cause of insanity one should be able to do better than was done in psycho-analysis, since it is known that “free-association” produces some minor alleviation of tension and anxiety. The mechanisms of why this came about were thus explored. I t was found that the heightened reality of straight memory and the knowledge of why locks, the usual target of straight memory, were aberrative combined to make an orderly fast type of processing, valid in the ratio of several hundred to one over older methods.

Because so many people in our society seek to profit by the failure of others to remember, memory is a generally reduced quantity in the current culture.

The release through recall of any incident which is forgotten or hidden and which contains considerable turbulence will produce a tone rise in the individual. The release through recall of any incident which is forgotten, hidden or off the track, and which contains considerable turbulence, will produce a tone rise in the individual.

* Editorial Note: Some misunderstanding has resulted on the part of some individuals about repeater technique, what it is, and how it was used. In the handbook DIANETICS (pages 214 to 218) there is a discussion of repeater technique, but simply defined, it is this: The repetition of a word or phrase in order to produce movement on the time track into an entheta area containing that word or phrase. Repeating or “rolling” a phrase in an engram in order to de-intensify the phrase or reduce the engram is not repeater technique. *Some misunderstanding has resulted on the part of some individuals about Repeater Technique— what it is and how it was used.

Repeater Technique almost invariably causes a temporary enturbulation as an inevitable consequence of contacting an entheta area of the time track and therefore should obviously not be used unless the auditor feels that he can disenturbulate the area so contacted. Repeater Technique is a forcing technique and now that more delicate and more effective means have been developed, it has limited usefulness. Allowing the preclear to repeat isolated phrases which he himself presents may be of benefit by taking him into a boil-off or a grief charge which is ready to reduce. Feeding the preclear random and arbitrary phrases to repeat will produce nothing but trouble.

That straight memory does free theta, or convert entheta to theta is beyond question. It is, however, a rather lengthy process, compared to lock scanning, for instance. Thus, straight memory should be used only as indicated on the chart, or to get the individual back up to present time, or by auditors who are so rushed for time that they have only a few minutes to attempt to rid a pre-clear of some specific somatic or aberration. That Straight Memory does free theta, or convert entheta to theta, is beyond question. It is, however, a rather lengthy process (yet it would take an auditor only fifteen hours of Dianetic processing by Straight Memory to accomplish what would take two or three years with non-Dianetic techniques). Thus, Straight Memory should be used only as indicated on the chart, or to get the individual back up to present time, or by auditors who are so rushed for time that they have only a few minutes to attempt to rid a preclear of some specific somatic or aberration.

1975: B2-71 2007: B2-296
But something else has been interrupted here which is very important to the pre-clear and that is parental care. There does not seem to be any substitute for the proximity and care of one’s own parents. Pre-clears who have been raised by nurses and maids do not demonstrate the same alertness as those who have been raised by their own parents. But something else has been interrupted here which is very important to the preclear’s life. And that is parental care. It may be the common, shallow and collegiate remark that parents are only biological. This does not happen to be borne out by the facts. There does not seem to be any substitute to a child for the proximity and care of his own parents.

1975: B2-71 2007: B2-296
Thus, the severance of the parent-child relationship after birth is a more solid break of affinity, reality, and communication than the summation of locks which would occur in the usual case later in life. Thus, the severance of the parent-child relationship after birth is a more solid break of affinity, reality and communication than the summation of locks which would occur, in the usual case, by the approximations of incidents later in life to early engrams.

[Do readers really need this “clarification” of what a lock is after it was already thoroughly defined earlier in the book?]


1975: B2-74 2007: B2-299
When the auditor strikes a circuit in an engram he can expect the pre-clear to go out of the auditor’s control into the control of some past and even dead individual’s phrases. Inidviduals who go around auditing themselves and running engrams and phrases ad infinitum are running because of circuits. When the auditor strikes a circuit in an engram, he can expect the preclear to go out of the auditor’s control into the control of some past and even dead individual’s phrases, since the circuit takes over control from the auditor. Individuals who go around auditing themselves and running engrams and phrases ad infinitum are running because of circuits.

1975: B2-75 2007: B2-300
The person who is rejected from a group because of some fault, or otherwise, experiences a major break of affinity. When such breaks of affinity overlie engrams, which they commonly do, they become highly aberrative and serve to charge up the engrams considerably.

Left to his own devices and reasoning on his own data, the individual decides what is reality for him and with what he can agree. When he is informed that he cannot agree with those things he thinks he should agree with, he experiences an inhibition of reality. When engrams underlie this, these locks can be very serious and can tie up considerable theta on a case as entheta.

The child does not know that these things are held to be otherwise valuable in the society, and so the child is continually denied its conquest of MEST. The child does not have the evaluation that these things are held to be otherwise valuable in the society, and so the child is denied continually its conquest of MEST.

1975: B2-77 2007: B2-302
Communication breaks, on the inhibition side, stem from the denial of a person’s ability to see, to feel, to hear, denial of a person’s right to talk or listen — in other words, denials of a person’s right to communicate. Communication breaks on the inhibition side stem from the denial of a person’s ability to see, to feel, to hear, to be, denial of a person’s rights to talk or listen. In other words, denials of a person’s right to communicate.

[“To be” doesn’t belong in this list as beingness is something that encompasses communication, not the other way around.]


CHAPTER EIGHT (COLUMN AD – Pleasure Moments)


1975: B2-89 2007: B2-316
A woman, mating herself to a man below 2.0, who is herself capable of a high level of survival, will find herself broken by little “misunderstandings,” strange perversions, and quarrels at inopportune times, until at last her ambitions for a family and a future lie in the dust where so many dreams go. A woman mating herself to a man below 2.0, who is herself capable of a high level of survival, will find herself broken by little “misunderstandings,” strange perversions and quarrels at inopportune times until at last her ambitions for a family and a future, or even for a career for herself, lie in the dust where so many dreams go.

This is death— death as certain as laying one’s neck below the blade of a guillotine and hitting the trigger. This is death— death as certain as laying one’s neck below the blade of a guillotine and tripping the trigger.

1975: B2-90 2007: B2-317
If permitted to go on being angry, he will remain static, to some degree, on the tone scale, but if these dramatizations are balked or fought against, he will descend down the tone scale, since he is not permitted to experience the “pleasure” which he can attain by being angry. His goal is to achieve destruction of things or people. If permitted to go on being angry, he will remain static to some degree on the Tone Scale. But if these dramatizations are balked or fought against, he will descend down the Tone Scale since he is not permitted to experience the “pleasure” which he can “attain” by being angry. It should not be expected that reasonable causes must exist for this person to vent anger. This person will make his own causes so that he can be angry. His goal is to achieve destruction of things or people.

1975: B2-91 2007: B2-318
People below the zone of anger are much more dangerous, since they will take much more devious steps to bring about death. People below the zone of anger are much more dangerous, since they will take much wider steps to bring about death.

[Here is another example of someone “correcting” this book not wanting readers to be clear about the nature of this tone level.]


1975: B2-93 2007: B2-320
Do not expect the 1.1 to run a moment when he was extremely angry, since his position on the tone scale makes overt anger a very dangerous thing to indulge in, and the fear implicit in his position may prevent him from showing it. Do not expect the 1.1 to run a moment when he was extremely angry, since his position on the Tone Scale makes overt anger a very dangerous thing to indulge in and the fear implicit in his position may prevent him from showing it. However, if you can get him to recall a moment when he was outstandingly and admirably moral and ethical when all around him were being dishonest and insincere, you may find that he experiences a great deal of “pleasure” in this counterfeit situation.

However, the auditor, by having the pre-clear run possible pleasure moments as concepts and then, as they are contacted more closely, as actual incidents, can often demonstrate to the pre-clear that pleasure has existed and is available.

1975: B2-97 2007: B2-325
When running pleasure moments or when encouraging his pre-clear to create and construct present-time pleasure moments to raise his level on the tone scale, the auditor should not overlook the fact that happiness is the overcoming of not unknowable obstacles toward a goal. When running pleasure moments or when advising his preclear to create and construct present time pleasure moments to raise his level on the Tone Scale, the auditor should not overlook the fact that happiness is the overcoming of not unknowable obstacles toward a known goal.

Imagination thus becomes mechanically more and more short-circuited into a supplantation of reality, as the position of the individual descends the scale.

This would also be an analogy which took place regarding valences, wherein the “ I” which is the real individual, becomes obliterated in favour of other highly-charged sections of the analyser. And here the analogy breaks down, since the valence walls between the different personalities of the individual grow more and more sharply defined as the individual descends on the tone scale, so that at last the heavily charged case goes from one valence to another so abruptly that one can almost hear the click as he crosses the valence wall.

The auditor should not under any circumstances try to force or persuade his poor pre-clear to “face reality.” The auditor, as has been said before in this book, should not under any circumstances try to slug, bang, hammer or electric shock his poor preclear into admitting that all is imagination.

1975: B2-108 2007: B2-339
He may have so much entheta on the subject of religion that he veers away from actuality here and talks in terms of atheism, or may go in the other direction and become completely hallucinatory. But in this case, he is veering away from his MEST universe to the point where he is constructing an imaginary sphere of activity. He may have so much entheta on the subject of religion that he veers away from actuality here and talks in terms of atheism or mad-dogism, or may go in the other direction and become completely hallucinatory— but in this case, he is veering away from his MEST universe to the point where he is constructing an imaginary sphere of activity.

[“Mad-dogism” what?!]

The child quite easily sees fairies and strange animals walking about, with his imagination. If he finds life dull and elders hard to shock into taking an interest in him, he m ay recount these things as valid. He is, of course, inevitably censured by the hard-headed, “practical”, and “rational” elder and so accumulates a series of locks on any engram she may have. Left to himself and his fantasies and imaginings, the child will eventually, of course, find out what is reality—that grim thing in our world of the twentieth century—and w hat is fantasy. But the elder is apt to press the child into too early an acknowledgement of this “reality”. Actually, of what absolute reality is neither you nor I have any notion, but we have agreed upon certain facts, and having agreed, we wish to remain friends, and so we continue this agreement.

The husband-wife team has been found in Dianetics to be the least compatible auditing group. A few husband-wife teams are successful, but the majority are not, and husbands and wives would do well to look outside the home for coauditors, for trouble in co-auditing can easily cause a shaky marriage to collapse. The husband-wife team has been found in Dianetics to be the least compatible group (a commentary upon American marriage, the training of the male to accept marriage as part of his environment and the lack of training of the female in how to be a wife). A few husband-wife teams are successful. But the majority are not and husbands and wives should look outside the home for co-auditors, or the marriage may collapse.



CHAPTER TEN (COLUMN AF – Locks)


1975: B2-118 2007: B2-351
Locks can be received only when an individual is weary, upset by reverses or is in a generally nonoptimum situation. These light approximations of engrams in the analytical present-time environ were believed in the past to be aberrative in themselves. Actually, they were not. The lock is only the surface manifestation of the basic environmental cause of aberration. Underlying any lock must be an engram. Ignorance of this fact was one of the main reasons for the failures of past therapies. A lock occurs also when the individual is attempting to carry out the irrational commands of the engram and is prevented by the society’s or some individual’s counter “reason” from accomplishing the dramatization. Locks can be received only when an individual is weary, upset by reverses or is in a generally non-optimum situation. These light approximations of engrams in the analytical present time environ pass for aberrative in themselves. Actually, they are not. The lock is only the surface manifestation of the total environmental cause of aberration. Underlying any lock must be an engram. A lock occurs also when the individual is attempting to carry out the however irrational commands of the engram and is prevented by the society’s or some individual’s counter “reason” from accomplishing the dramatization.

1975: B2-119 2007: B2-351
Locks have only to be addressed in a case until the pre-clear is up to a point where he can run engrams. After the pre-clear has run out engrams, the locks consequent to any engram or chain of engrams which he has run out can be scanned off with great speed. Locks have only to be addressed in a case until the preclear has run out engrams. The locks consequent to any one engram (or chain of engrams) which he has run out can be scanned off with great speed.

[Here is a major alteration of actual application of Dianetics methodology.]


1975: B2-120 2007: B2-352
But if the auditor discovers that the lock is in itself aberrative, he should understand that this is no time to run engrams, since this preclear must be unburdened of many locks and secondary engrams before she will be in shape to run engrams. But if the auditor discovers that the lock is in itself aberrative, he should understand that this is no time to run engrams, since this preclear must be unburdened of many locks and minor engrams before she will be in shape to run engrams.



CHAPTER ELEVEN (COLUMN AG - Scanning Locks)


1975: B2-123 2007: B2-356
Some cases on which many engrams have been run may yet not have risen on the tone scale, because the entheta of the processing has enturbulated present time and has created new locks. Lock scanning remedies this. With two to four hours of lock scanning these cases will rebound swiftly and attain a new level of activity. Some cases on which many engrams have been run may yet not have risen on the Tone Scale because the entheta of the processing enturbulated present time and created new locks. Lock Scanning remedies this. Some cases which have been book-audited remain relatively static on the Tone Scale, but with two to four hours of Lock Scanning rebound swiftly and attain a new level of activity.

["Book-audited" is defined in the glossary of 2007 edition as: "recieved auditing based on techniques contained in the book Dianetics: The Modern Science of Mental Health."]

Lock scanning can actually be called a high speed straight wire. Lock Scanning can actually be called a “high-speed Straightwire” rather than anything else.
1975: B2-132 2007: B2-365
The 0.5 cannot be lock scanned, with profit, since the 0.5 will inevitably hang up too thoroughly. But if the auditor does make the mistake of scanning a 0.5 through locks, he must remember that it is only necessary to use straight memory to free the 0.5. The 0.5 cannot be Lock Scanned with profit, since the 0.5 will inevitably hang up too thoroughly. But if the auditor does make the mistake of scanning a 0.5 through locks, he must remember that it is only necessary to scan a new type of lock in order to free the 0.5 (or to use Straight Memory).



CHAPTER TWELVE (COLUMN AH – Secondary Engrams)


1975: B2-136 2007: B2-369
Affinity, reality, and communication components of theta, by the loss or threat of loss to the individual, convert to entheta and thereafter repel the affinity, reality, and communication components which yet remain in a state of theta.

No engram is active until it is “keyed-in”, which is to say until a moment when the environment around the awake but fatigued or distressed individual is itself similar to the dormant engram. No engram is active until it is keyed-in, which is to say, until a moment when the environment around the awake individual is itself similar to the dormant engram.

1975: B2-137 2007: B2-370
In the presence of the physical engram, which contains some approximation of the loss or threatened loss, when a severe shock of loss or threatened loss occurs the turbulence of the individual is to a large degree trapped and a heavy charge enters the physical pain engram and remains there until dianetic processing removes it or until the theta and MEST of the individual are separated by death.* With the physical engram present (which has some approximation of the loss or threatened loss), when a severe shock of loss or threatened loss occurs, the turbulence of the individual is apparently to a large degree trapped and a heavy charge enters the physical pain engram and remains there until Dianetic processing removes it or until the theta and MEST of the individual are separated by death.*

1975: B2-138 2007: B2-371
A few minor secondary engrams on a case may only dull the sharpness of the perceptics, but the usual case has many heavy secondary engrams on it. The seriously occluded case is occluded because of the existence of secondary engrams. A few minor secondary engrams on a case may only cut off the sharpness of the perceptics, but the usual case has many heavy secondary engrams on it. The seriously occluded case is occluded because of the existence of secondary engrams.

Today one’s environment might be happy. This environment would assist one’s tone, pulling one slightly up the tone scale. Or when the environment is very happy it has the occasional result of making the individual’s activities and conduct momentarily those of a 4.0, even if he is ordinarily considerably aberrated. But where a 4.0 would have a resilience and would respond only partially to a present-time environment, a thoroughly aberrated person is almost a slave to the environment, and the lower the individual is on the tone scale the more seriously he is affected by low-tone environments. Today, one’s environment might be happy. This environment would assist one’s tone, pulling one slightly up the Tone Scale. Or when the environment is very happy, it has the occasional result of making the individual’s activities and conduct momentarily those of a Clear, even if he is ordinarily considerably aberrated. But where a Clear would have a resilience and would respond only partially to a present time environment, a thoroughly aberrated person is almost a slave to the environment. And the lower the individual is on the Tone Scale, the more seriously he is affected by low-tone environments.

A note can be of a certain pitch with a great deal of volume. Further, the note by harmonics and overtones may have timbre, or quality. A note can be of a certain pitch with a great deal of volume. Further, the note, by harmonics and overtones, may have quality.
1975: B2-140 2007: B2-373
Aberration, considered as pitch or tone, is theoretically independent of quality (structure, probably) and volume (theta endowment).The factors of quality and volume would account in part for the individual differences which may be found in aberrated persons at similar levels of the tone scale. Aberration, considered as pitch or tone, is theoretically independent of quality (structure, probably) and volume (theta endowment).The factors of quality and volume would account, in part, for the individual differences which may be found in aberrated persons at similar levels of the Tone Scale. (The analogy with music should not be overworked, of course, since a low tone in music may be delightful, but a low tone in aberration is not.)

1975: B2-141 2007: B2-375
The life of cells persists below organism death, but as the basic organism life and the MEST have mutually rejected each other, somatic life, unless assisted by other organisms, as in the experiments of Alexis Carrel, dies away within the next few minutes or months, thus producing complete organism death and leaving in its place the MEST compounds which have been organized by the theta and which are themselves a sort of evolution of MEST. But as the basic organism, life and the MEST have mutually rejected each other, somatic life (unless assisted by other organisms, as in the experiments of Alexis Carrel) dies away within the next few minutes or a year, thus producing complete organism death and leaving in its place the MEST compounds which have been organized by the theta and which are themselves a sort of evolution of MEST.

This intention, when manifested as anger, is not immediately observable. But anger is destruction and death. From there on down, loss becomes more and more likely.

There is a direct parallel on the tone scale between the position of the individual, the condition of the theta, and the way MEST is handled by theta. There is a distinct parallel on the Tone Scale between the position of the individual, the condition of the theta and the way MEST is handled by theta.

1975: B2-144 2007: B2-377
Personal identity is very important. It is a parallel to self-determinism. When the individual’s identity has been absorbed to a great degree in the personality of another person, another way of saying the commingling of theta, a loss of personality ensues with a consequent reduction of analytical dynamic and ability to reason. It is very important for the auditor to cause the separation of these identities. Personal identity is very important. It is a parallel to self-determinism.

A secondary engram is run exactly as one would run an engram. One starts at the earliest moment of the secondary that one can discover and proceeds, picking up all perceptics, to the end of the incident.

1975: B2-148 2007: B2-382
The reason for this seems to be that though it is the physical pain engram which makes possible secondary engrams and locks, it is the secondaries which entrap the majority of the theta on the case and keep it as entheta in an encysted condition. The reason for this seems to be that the physical pain engram makes possible secondary engrams and locks, but the secondaries entrap the majority of the theta on the case and keep it, as entheta, in an encysted condition.

1975: B2-151 2007: B2-385
The test of any secondary is whether or not exhausting it raises the individual up the tone scale. When the auditor discovers that he is running fear or apathy incidents because of some circuit, he should immediately be aware of the fact that he is trying to address much too heavy a form of entheta. The test of any secondary is whether or not it runs the individual up the Tone Scale.

It is an adroit auditor who can elicit from some “hard-boiled and emotionless” denizen of our culture the tears or fear necessary to resolve his case. But the scanning of lock chains or the reduction of available physical pain engrams will place in the auditor’s hands, willy-nilly, discharge of secondary engrams. The auditor can convert the entheta of locks into theta to such a degree that secondary engrams will to begin discharge almost automatically.

The therapist did not know w hat the patient was crying about and neither did the patient, but the title of “release of affect” was assigned to this crying and much extraneous technology was developed around it. Psychodrama and other techniques were developed in order to make the individual “release affect.” This was the second slight incursion into the field of human thought. It produced little beneficial result because secondaries were restimulated more often than they were relieved. Secondaries have to be run as engrams, with the pre-clear returning on the time track.

Psychodrama and other techniques were developed in order to make the individual “release affect.” This was the second slight incursion into the field of human thought. If the results were not all that could be desired, it was because they overlooked the important Dianetic fact that secondaries were restimulated more often than they were relieved. Secondaries have to be run as engrams, with the preclear returned on the time track.

This is the anatomy of an engram. It contains physical pain. It contains all the perceptics of the environment in which the physical pain was received. It contains the physiological condition of the body, including endocrine balance at the time. It includes the age of the individual. It includes the mis-emotion or emotion contained in the incident, as manifested by persons around the injured person. It contains unconsciousness, in the form of anaten (analytical attenuation).

It contains unconsciousness in the form of anaten (analytical attenuation).

Engrams are based on the non-survival circumstances of theta and MEST colliding too sharply together, with the attendant reversal of polarity. All engrams, even those which are highly complimentary to the ability of the individual (such as hypnotic suggestions, which are a light form of engram and depend on early physical pain engrams) are non-survival. There is no such thing as an engram which assists an individual in his business of living. The engram merely uses some natural ability of the individual and may feverishly but inefficiently enforce it.

There is this difference between the file clerk and the somatic strip: he works with the file clerk but commands the somatic strip. On command, the somatic strip will go to any point of the pre-clear’s life, unless the entheta on the case is so heavy that the somatic strip is frozen in one place. The somatic strip goes to the point of return, but it is not the same as completely returning since the pre-clear’s “ I” can stay in present time and the somatic strip can be sent back to earlier periods of his life. This is a very useful mechanism. There is this difference between the file clerk and the somatic strip: he works with the file clerk, but commands the somatic strip.

One might say that the auditor and the file clerk are consultants over the case of the pre-clear as to the best method of raising the pre-clear on the tone scale. The file clerk’s interest and participation in this is very large. The file clerk’s ability to answer questions sometimes extends to suggestions as to how to run the case when these are required by the auditor.

The pre-clear becomes aware of the somatic and of other perceptics and, phrase by phrase, runs off the engram, re-experiencing it, feeling the generally modified version of the pain he once experienced, recounting all the conversation which he perceives to have taken place in the incident, getting rid of the “boil-off” which smothered the incident or yawning away the remaining anaten in the incident or experiencing the mis-emotion of the incident and, in short, reducing or erasing the engram.

Because Dianetics has not at this time much explored structure, no slightest effort is made here to justify the existence of pre-conception sperm engrams or pre-conception ovum engrams or conception engrams or birth engrams. Actually, these have been found time and again in psycho-therapy and abandoned only because they did not agree with the reality of the practitioner. Possibly the mistaken emphasis of outmoded therapies upon the Second Dynamic occurs because the basic engrams of the case are sexual. This would bring about an incorrect conclusion on the part of those who did not understand the mechanics of aberration.

Theoretically, one could strip a case of locks and secondaries without touching any engrams; however, there are such things as circuits, as will be covered later, and sometimes it might be necessary to run engrams on a heavily charged case in order to attack a circuit, but this would be an extraordinary proceeding, and should only be done by a skilled auditor, as trained at the Foundation.

With the inaccessible psychotic whose “reason” is so evasive and aberrated as to appear so even to the casual observer, and with the psychotic who is caught in some engram, the auditor should give his whole effort to establishing contact, even by mimicking the psychotic or by discovering some small interest the psychotic may have in his environ and directing his attention to the details of that thing.

*Some further comment should be made on the case who begins to audit himself. Evidently a few isolated cases have been able to do self-auditing, without any damage and, indeed, in one case with considerable benefit. A case may begin to self-audit when there are factors in the case and in the environment which are unsolved by the pre-clear or the auditor. The moment the proper computation is struck on the case, the self-auditing ceases. While anyone can straight-wire himself, and this is a very useful procedure, and while almost anyone can do lock scanning by himself, the heavier forms of entheta are more, and more difficult to attack unassisted. The person who feels the need to run grief over some specific incident should, of course, run it whether there is an auditor present or not. But the individual who deliberately forces himself into an engram and attempts to reduce it will, in ninety-nine cases out of a hundred, merely restimulate the engram and enturbulate himself into helplessness and discomfort before he has gotten beyond the first phrase. Self-auditing is really “doing it the hard way,” when carried beyond straight memory or light lock scanning. In almost every case, heavy self-auditing can be put down infallibly to the engrams’ defending themselves from real auditing by deceiving the befuddled pre-clear into running himself through irreducible or dub-in incidents. *Self-auditing does not obtain good results for m any reasons. A preclear auditing him self through entheta will inevitably run into trouble. H e will reduce him self on the Tone Scale no matter how m any engrams or boil-offs he contacts. He is dramatizing, while auditing self, valences in engrams which have hurt him and so he only continues to hurt him self via engrams. “Self” processing is only possible in a system like Self Analysis. T h is permits it because the author audits the preclear via the book. This system stops self-auditing and advances his place on the Tone Scale. Self Analysis is available at the addresses listed in the back of this book. It contains the self-processing system and a simplified statement of Dianetics.

This last evolution is taking place continuously in present time. Here with us at this moment the lowliest forms are actively converting sunlight and minerals for the support of higher forms. The more MEST the form handles external to itself, the more complex are its requirements in terms of pre-processed MEST. This processing of MEST, then, for higher and higher form consumption is necessary as a staff of life. This last evolution is taking place continuously in present time and is a ladder of support, since Man and other mobile animals depend upon lower and lower forms to do more and more basic work in providing MEST and its fuels for the construction. This present time evolution is in continuous existence and, here with us at this moment, the lowliest forms are actively converting sunlight and minerals for the support of higher forms.

Actually, 2.0 on the tone scale is the place where the A-R-C of theta and the organism order in terms of MEST have each and intermingledly become sufficiently dissonant so that a slight discomfort exists. The enMEST is not very enMEST, and the entheta is not very entheta, but as the scale is descended this dissonance grows stronger and wider until it is finally so wide that it is almost a null, which is to say that very little inter-activity between entheta and enMEST exists and the components of enMEST are becoming so poorly organized as not even to be in conflict with one another, and the A-R-C of theta is almost entirely interrupted, dispersed and dissonant.

This is the engram, a moment of physical pain with its resultant unconsciousness and the perceptics entrapped therein. Entheta and enMEST from o.1 up to 2.0 are seeking to separate and in so seeking enturbulate the existing theta and MEST.

When a secondary engram is reduced, on the grief level, it is reduced in tears. When tears occur, the secondary should be run until it is completely exhausted, or the phrase, if that is all that can be recovered, should be repeated by the pre-clear until it no longer occasions tears, since tears seem to be the primary manifestation of the exhaustion of the most harmful secondaries, those of grief.

Auditors who are below 2.0 on the tone scale tend unconsciously, and even consciously, in the direction of succumbing. They have a ratio in themselves of more entheta than theta. Auditors below 2.0 on the tone scale have accomplished something with cases from time to time, because Dianetics can be, in part, mechanically applied. But the pre-clear who places himself in the hands of an auditor below 2.0 is asking for unsuccessful processing, since auditor code breaks will inevitably ensue and the case will be unwittingly mishandled, regardless of the apparent intention of the auditor.

3.0 would be the lowest level of the auditor, for any truly successful auditing. At this level, the auditor will be interested, sympathetic, able to follow the auditor’s code with no strain, will be quick to understand any trouble which the pre-clear encounters, and can ordinarily, if properly educated, be expected to carry out a good and responsible role as an auditor. 3.0 would be the lowest level of the auditor for any truly successful auditing.

In short, it takes life and energy in an individual to bring into being life and energy in others.

In this chapter we will take up cases at particular tone levels. It should be remembered that an individual can exist at any one of these tone levels and still be considered “rational” by the current society. There is one very important caution an auditor should observe in starting a case. Either he evaluates the case on the chart with thoroughness and so knows the type of case he is addressing, or he uses, in the absence of chart evaluation, very light methods of processing such as straight memory or the scanning of minor lock chains. The auditor will not be able to determine rapidly where his pre-clear lies on the tone scale, unless he has the chart before him and has made a test of the somatic and general responses of his pre-clear.

Or he uses, in the absence of chart evaluation, very light methods of processing such as Straight Memory or the scanning of minor lock chains. Unless the auditor is very experienced, he will not be able to determine immediately where his preclear lies on the Tone Scale unless he has the chart before him and has made a test of the somatics and general responses of his preclear.

However, the 3.0 has nearly all of his engrams ready to be run as individual incidents. However, the 3.0 has nearly all of his engrams ready to be run by Standard Procedure.

The 3.0 level is definitely the area where an erasure is begun. Engrams do not ordinarily reduce at this level, but erase. The 3.0 level is definitely the area where an erasure is begun. Engrams do not reduce at this level, but erase.

The engram in the 1.5 has so much authority that when free theta approaches it, that theta is itself enturbulated. Thus, the auditor should avoid running engrams at 1.5. The use of straight memory becomes very important at 1.5. Here a trick of straight memory becomes very important.

The patience of an auditor is easily exhausted when dealing with a 1.1, for the 1.1 may he down on the couch and knowingly run complete imaginary incidents, reporting somatics and perceptics which he does not have. The patience of an auditor is easily exhausted when dealing with a 1 .1. For the 1.1 may lie down on the couch and knowingly run completely imaginary incidents, reporting somatics and perceptics which he does not have.

He has, evidently, merely turned an enMEST manifestation into an entheta manifestation, so that although the chronic somatic no longer troubles the 1.1 as physical pain, it troubles him exceedingly as mental aberration. He has evidently merely turned an enMEST manifestation into an entheta manifestation, so that although the chronic somatic no longer troubles the 1.1 as physical pain, it troubles him exceedingly as mental aberrations.

[Plural “aberrations” now does not agree with singular “chronic somatic.”]


UNBURDENING ENGRAMS

I have not had sufficient opportunity to test thoroughly its potentialities or to locate it properly on the tone scale. I have not had sufficient opportunity to test thoroughly its potentialities or to properly locate it on the Tone Scale.

The auditor has the locks scanned one or more times, working with the file clerk. Then the auditor, using again standard procedure for engrams, runs that engram once more or twice more or until any additional material has been reduced. Then he has the pre-clear scan all the locks of that engram again. The auditor has the locks scanned one or more times, working with the file clerk. Then the auditor, using again Standard Procedure for engrams, runs that engram once more or twice more or until any additional material has been reduced. Then he again has the preclear scan all the locks of that engram.

[This may not seem like a material alteration except for resulting in a less pleasant read, but then again, why make such a change in the first place?]

[In 2007 edition, Unburdering Engrams section was moved to the end of Chapter 13 in Book Two – Column AI Engrams.]


POSITIVE PROCESSING

By looking for and bringing to view the theta, the auditor may improve the pre-clear’s tone considerably. By looking for and bringing to view the theta, a preclear may be considerably improved in tone.

[In 2007 edition, Positive Processing section was moved to the end of Chapter 8 in Book Two – Column AD Pleasure Moments. The last paragraph originally appearing at the end of Positive Processing section was split up into three paragraphs and moved into its own chapter at the end of 2007 book titled “The Goal of Processing.”]

[1975 printing also had an updated Auditor's Code - "THE AUDITOR'S CODE OF 1958" - on page 285. Strangely enough there is no Auditor's Code cited at the end of 2007 book. There is of course still a chapter “The Auditor's Code” in Book Two, Chapter 2.]
