I received a second set of questions from an SRT student who had little reality on the Scientology OT levels so I will try and provide some answers to hopefully fill in the information gap. The first set of questions appeared on http://possiblyhelpfuladvice.com/?p=17337.
I have added alphabetic IDs in front of the multiple questions so I could answer them more concisely.
1) A) The entities that were gotten rid of without being helped in a Scn OT session – what do they do? B) Do they go find someone else with a body to hang out with and enturbulate? C) Do they hang out around the OT who discarded them but now at a distance? D) Do they ever try to “get even” with the OT? It would seem that the world is being filled with stirred up and unhandled entities – that can’t be good.
A) They may stick on the walls or ceiling of the auditing room as some seem to think that walls are “solid” to them. They may wander off and disappear. They may just go invisible and hunker down waiting for something to happen. I have rescued entities who were just hunkering and hiding out to avoid detection.
B) I have not seen this yet but it is certainly possible.
C) This happens a lot. Take a close look at the next OT 8 you see.
D) Yes, this happens. I have had to rescue a being who was stuck on getting even for the bad handling it had received at Flag.
2) A) Are discarded entities the reason that some OTs get terminal illnesses and die? (I’ve known 3 OTs who died of cancer and an OT VIII who got diabetes.) B) Are they PTS to entities whom they discarded?
A) An entity who was upset from the auditing it received will negatively affect the person it is attached to. It may not have any evil intent at all but is only wanting to die or is stuck in some horrifying incident. Unhandled entities are capable of anything so if you run into a case of cancer or any illness, you should try to handle every entity which has attention on that part of the body.
B) I never thought of that but an entity which is exerting a destructive influence on a person is suppressing him. An entity which has been woken up by OT auditing but not rescued would have more effect on the body than one of the long term inhabitants who was not in restimulation. OT auditing is very restimulative as it is designed to be so and if the auditing cycle is not carried out to full EP with entity blown and free to start over, you have a restimulated entity dramatizing the OT 3 incident for example.
3) I have never done any of the Scn OT levels. A while back, I downloaded all the OT materials from one of the Independent Scn websites and have read it ALL, just out of curiosity. Without going into detail (I don’t want to give people misunderstood words), why is it all so complicated? Especially OT II where I saw (skimmed) about 80 pages of handwritten processes PLUS all that other stuff?
It was developed over time and seemed to me to be a patchwork of repair actions and new developments. There is also a datum about the amount of complexity is proportional to the lack of confront. I feel that LRH had difficulty confronting entities as they troubled him all his life.
4) It seems that LRH only set it up to audit up to the 4th dynamic – mankind – human bodies with spirits. Spirits without bodies aren’t helped – they are harmed – but they represent most of the 7th dynamic. Why did he view entities without bodies as “the enemy” when it is so blatantly obvious to many people who are “less aware” that “spirits” respond to kindness just like anybody else? How could LRH not want to help them?!!!! What was wrong with him?
In the fifties he was rather blase about entities and didn’t feel they merited much investigation. I expect his running Dianetics on himself after he was clear caused some complications and altered his viewpoint on entities. Other members may have more information on why he viewed entities at enemies.
5) A) Why does Scn require everyone to travel up “the bridge”, making you believe that if you skip any steps, you won’t fully benefit from the higher levels? B) Is this just a huge marketing gimmick? C) And why is it so damn hard to “get up the bridge” in Scn? D) Is it because most of it is a wrong action for a lot of people? E) If they simply got onto SRT, would that handle most of the case problems that “the bridge” addresses?
A) They were really fixed on standardization and it was simpler to administrate and manage. In the very early days, auditors were expected to make up their own versions of processes.
C) Too many arbitraries have been introduced since the late seventies when going up the bridge to OT was relatively simple.
D) A standard Bridge is a cookie cutter activity. People are not the same and they do not have the same case problems. Therefore, the standard Bridge is a wrong action for most people. Auditors have always had to struggle with programs that did not fit their preclears. That was one of the factors that set me to researching better ways of arranging auditing.
E) SRT was designed to handle preclear problems, not to fit into an arbitrary scheme where one approach fits all preclears. I have yet to see a case problem that did not yield to SRT processing. I did not expect this at first, but over a thousand hours of SRT processing has failed to turn up a situation that SRT could not handle.
6) A) Why do some people need Life Repair before they can do SRT? B) How would you determine if someone needed Life Repair? C) What does Life Repair handle? D) Is Life Repair easy to deliver? E) Can you deliver it without a meter?
A) In some cases, a life repair program is needed to handle the present time problems, withholds and losses the new person is burdened with so that he can really be in session and is willing to talk openly to the auditor.
C) Each Life Repair program is unique and is tailored to the individual. Life repair could include remedial TRs, objectives, Book one, Grade processes, whatever is needed to get the person to the state where he can see entities and is able to run SRT commands. This is completely contrary to the COS Bridge which assumes that new people are not clear and must be given a long runway to ensure they are really clear. We have found that most of the people we encounter can see entities in their very first session, so the whole issue of whether they are clear or not is moot. ( of little or no practical value or meaning; purely academic.)
D) Life Repair may require an experienced auditor as it often requires experience in all styles of auditing.
However, any repair of a persons life is a valid Life Repair so self analysis lists could be used with good effect on a brand new person who was not up to SRT.
E) You can always find processes for a new person which do not require an emeter.
Thank you very much for your questions!
