Why is this needed?
After 30 years of using LRH’s auditing and administrative technology, I am ready for some spiritual technology that works more reliably for a wider range of people and has less potential for destroying lives.
I have seen highly motivated PCs who never were able to address what they wanted to address because the Bridge defined by LRH was pretty much a one-size-fits-all proposition. Too many people I know got to their OT levels and never handled what they came into Scientology to handle.
I had some great wins receiving and using Ron’s auditing technology but I saw too many cases where I was prevented from helping others because applying LRH tech could conceivably make them worse.
The main reason for identifying “illegal PCs” is to protect the church against litigation. This may be good for the church but it denies gains to many who could benefit from some help.
I am beginning to see that there are alternatives to LRH tech which do not have the same liabilities because they don’t present the same risks to the individual receiving them.
From personal experience I can say with certainty that the Tech and its delivery has gone to hell since the early 1980s. As a result, I can understand the certainty that some have about the Tech not working on them or the people they know.
How did we get by up to this point?
I was extremely fortunate to have received auditing starting in 1976 from a lot of different auditors and I had stable gains from my auditing all the way up to the OT levels. It wasn’t until I got to Flag that I began to see auditors who go solid when I would originate something beyond their reality.
Good auditors and spot-on CSing were the exception, not the rule, at Flag.
The auditor presence was so ethics-officer oriented that it actually inhibited communicating anything significant in session.
An auditor who is actually there for the PC and is adept at two-way comming situations that come up is usually able to work around processes that were not biting or were wrongly programmed. Unfortunately those good people left the organization when the GAT garbage began.
The rigidity of current tech application coupled with the robotic TRs that are now in vogue makes for a disastrous combination that invalidates a PCs knowingness.
I spent 20 years in the chair delivering Scientology auditing and found that in the years I audited in Class V and Advanced orgs that I spent too much time battling CSes on behalf of the PC. Auditing at my mission was far more effective because we cared more about our PCs than arbitrary stats.
The Bridge is a hodge-podge of actions that were assembled on the run by LRH to handle problems that came up. In many cases, he based entire rundowns on his own case or a unique situation.
It is no wonder that his one-size-fits-all approach does not work on all PCs. The miracle is that is worked on as many as it did!
What would make for a better future technology?
The future lies in a more open source approach to refining and replacing LRH’s duct-taped Bridge with processes that play to the PCs knowingness and validate the being, not the bank.
I think we will see a growing interest in all of the new independent developments that have appeared since the church morphed into a monolithic cult.
I have been researching them and feel that there is a place for all of them whether the service mimics early Scientology, or follows more innovative paths like Idenics, Knowledgism, or Paul’s Robot Auditor. There are many more that competent people are working on.
Now that the CofS is doing a Titanic, it is time to get our best and brightest auditors working on solutions that will do the following:
– Must be deliverable in a way that puts the PC at cause
– Should be deliverable by telephone or webcam connection when needed.
– Must be tailored to address what the PC wants handled and nothing else.
– Must not overpower the “minds protection”.
– Should not require years of training to become a competent practitioner and produce repeatable results.
There are more, but this is a start. I think we need to stop cursing the darkness and light a few candles.
Finally, we should not go around attacking efforts to accomplish the above.
There is no Gold Standard to measure new efforts against. The “Gold Standard” that existed in the CofS produced sheep, not lions and these poor souls were no match for Miscavige or for LRH in his declining and degraded years.
Proof of that is that many of our “best and brightest” have agreed to spend the last few years as prisoners at the Gold golf course and concentration camp. Prior to that LRH was not able to use his own technology to prevent himself from falling into a degraded condition from which he could not be rescued.
These are not signs of a technology that frees beings. These are indicators that something is dreadfully wrong with or missing from the technology we were trained in.
We have more horsepower in the field than ever before. It’s time we started linking up and using our experience to develop technologies that will carry out the promise we expected from Scientology.
