An auditor, as per Auditor's code number two, would "never evaluate for the preclear or tell him what he should think about his case in session". For example, in Dianetics, the auditor would never suggest to the preclear which incident to run on the whole track. Telling the preclear which incident to run is evaluation and is never done.

As another example, in Scientology, the auditor would never give the preclear items in a Listing and Nulling action, or on any other auditing action for that matter. Can you imagine the auditor in response to a question saying, "I'd like to indicate your items are horses, dogs, cats and penguins". Giving the preclear items is evaluation and would very likely be a wrong indication. Continuing to give the preclear items would upset the preclear and if continued over an upset without correction by an L4 list, would cause the preclear to be sad, down tone and overwhelmed.

The rule of never evaluating for the preclear is a foundation of Standard Tech and when this rule is violated, auditing and case gain cease to occur.

All the levels of processing leading up to the Clearing Course (Life Repair, Drug Rundown, Grades, Dianetics, Power & Super-Power, R6EW, etc.) are strictly non-evaluative levels where no one evaluates for the preclear as to what he should run. The preclear is never told which incidents to run or is he ever given items. The pattern is always followed that the preclear is asked a question or given a command and the preclear comes up with his own answers. To do otherwise would, of course, be a serious break in the Auditor's Code.

These levels, up to the Clearing Course, are called NON-EVALUATIVE levels, because no evaluation is made for the preclear as to what he should run. Suddenly at the level of the Clearing Course, the preclear is given pages of GPM items (items, lights, etc.) and is told that this material is on his time track and that these items are, in fact, basic-basic on his time track. The Clearing Course is called an EVALUATIVE level because the preclear is given items and is told which incident to run.

At OT I, the clear is given a set of thirteen processes to run outdoors. The clear or Pre-OT comes up with his own answers so this is called a non-evaluative level.

At OT II, the PreOT is again given pages of GPM items with the evaluation that this material is on his time track. OT II is an evaluative level.

At this point on the Bridge, the Pre-OT studies the OT III data. He is told that Incident II happened 75 Million years ago and that Incident I happened 4 Quadrillion years ago. He is given the complete content of both of these incidents and is given instructions to run BT's and Clusters on these incidents. In a sense, the Pre-OT is now evaluating for other thetans as to which incidents on the time track they will run. OT III is clearly an evaluative level.

At New OT IV, we have a mostly non-evaluative level with some evaluation. This is an audited action where the preclear date/locates heavy drug experiences (non-evaluative) and then finds BT's and Clusters by pressure area, also non-evaluative. After the Pre-OT finds the BT or Cluster by pressure area, the auditor assesses for the type of incident which caused the cluster, non-evaluative, and then date/locates that incident - non-evaluative. This is followed up with the running of Incident II and Incident I, evaluative. So New OT IV is mostly non-evaluative.

Now we have NOTS at New OT V, VI, VII. In session, NOTS auditing is clearly non-evaluative because BT's and Clusters are asked questions and are allowed to give answers without any evaluation as to which items they give.


To summarize, here is a table of non-evaluative and evaluative levels

Does it work to tell a PC what to run? It might if the incidents and items being run were common to all mankind and everyone had the same reality on those incidents and items. However, I have found through research over the last 7 years that this is not the case. My experience is that the Clearing Course and OT II run poorly if at all on most people, with an occasional exception. In most cases, the person gets few or no reads even though auditing prior to that point was normal and standard and auditing after they somehow get through the CC, OT II and OT III again becomes normal and standard.

My experience with OT III is that most are intimidated and sometimes frightened by the data and prospect of having their existence terminated by an unexpected freewheel. To a high percentage of Pre-OT's the data of Incidents I and II is simply unreal. They are responding the way any PC would respond to a heavy evaluation on any other level; i.e., no reads, unreality, and some degree of overwhelm. I doubt very much in most cases whether the person is better off after being pushed through this area of the bridge. In a lot of cases, in and out of the Church, I would say that they are worse off.

The bottom line is: the levels of the CC, OT II and OT III are highly evaluative and do not produce uniformly a 100% standard result. I have endeavored to do something about this situation rather than to just put people through these evaluative levels like some kind of robot processing other robots. I have found a non-evaluative procedure to get people through this area of the Bridge and I am working constantly to improve it. So far, the results are very good.

The materials of the CC and OT II comes from LRH's research into GPM's in the early 60's. As anyone who has studied the development of the GPM material can tell you, the GPM processes used in the early to middle 60's were strictly non-evaluative up until the introduction of the CC materials in 1965/1966. Much of the GPM data prior to that time was frustratingly difficult for most people to run and to receive. Perhaps out of this frustration came the idea of a simple GPM line plot which all PC's could run by simply calling off items until any one item ceased to read - a very wonderful idea if the guy who comes up with the items to run is 100% correct for everyone and providing that it is really true that these items are common to all.

Recently through the debrief of Otto Roos and the Los Angeles court case, we have been given a glimpse of the actual personal life and case state of LRH. He is a guy who could be one of the most brilliant philosophers of all time who has come up with technical developments which are truly amazing. Before I say what I am going to say next, I would like to make it clear that I totally respect, admire and appreciate the technical developments of LRH.

We now know that his case was a mess during this period of time when he developed the evaluative levels. Ron used various drugs and medications during the 50's and 60's. He participated in experimental auditing which left a tremendous amount of BPC. As we now know, he was seriously physically ill during this period of time. So what we have is a most brilliant CREATIVE technical genius, who at the time is in the least desirable case shape of anyone on the planet, giving us his case to run.

If you want to get an idea of what kind of case shape LRH was in after this period of evaluative development, listen to RJ 37. This is the voice of a man who sounds very burned out, weak and physically ill. Listen to RJ 37 very carefully and you will hear a masterwork of lying and pretending. This is a guy who has just put himself through several years of self auditing and now he wants us to run his case. And most of us did do just that, without ever seeing the difference between LRH's technical discoveries and his case.

From my experience, the basic data about GPM's is fundamentally correct. It just needs to be run so that it is non-evaluative for the PC. My experience has also been that if the PC does not go clear on NED, a thorough run on an audited and solo R6EW will produce a clear. The ideas of dichotomies producing dramatization and case are as old as the Tao.

So, we audit the PC on R6EW and when he is able enough, we have him study the data and finish it off solo (just like in the audited then solo sequence of NOTS). Perhaps more non-evaluative GPM running could be introduced at this point. That could be the subject of further research. My opinion is that R6EW is sufficient if run to completion.

Next, the new Clear is given the Sunshine Rundown or OT I to extrovert his attention.

I have completely removed the CC and OT II materials from the Bridge for reasons given above. The Clear (Pre-OT) at this point is ready to do OT III in a non-evaluative form. I will describe how this is done in theory and practice.

First we have to look at the OT III material in terms of what is fundamentally true and correct, and what is not. What parts of OT III can we be sure are absolutely correct? With this question answered, we can then structure a level which is non-evaluative and which produces excellent results.

First of all, we DO know for sure that mutual incidents or experiences DO occur whenever a severe experience happens to more than one thetan at one particular location and time. In other words, the common denominator of mutual incidents are:

  1. A group of two or more beings

  2. Same Location

  3. Same Time

  4. Same type of incident (accident, injury, explosion, etc.)

We also know for sure that there are many thetans in this universe and that they will tend to cluster or fixate on severe or shocking experiences (particularly impacts), continue to mock up pictures of the incident and each other. We know that these clusters are associated with the Pre-OT's body, the space around the body, or in some location where the Pre-OT has been located in the past.

There is then some connection between the Pre-OT and his entities. These entities are commonly called body thetans. Further, if a Pre-OT spots a BT or cluster by pressure area or by read and gets its location relative to the body, the BT or Cluster can be audited just as with any other being. We know that for a Pre-OT who is properly setup, a blow of mass and charge will occur which is felt by the Pre-OT and seen on a meter when BT's or Clusters are spotted precisely and audited on the correct process. Lastly, a BT or Cluster responds to auditing in exactly the same way that any other PC responds.

One other piece of information should be interjected here. I have found that the Hawaiian islands arose out of the Pacific Ocean much later than 75 million years ago. Also, no archeologist or geologist has ever found any remnant of civilization prior to recorded history even though animal and plant fossils are routinely found from periods even earlier than 75 million years ago. One would think that in all of our search for the past, some scientist would have come up with some evidence of this great advanced civilization purported to have existed 75 million years ago. Could this be some dub in or implant which never in fact happened in the physical universe, or at least, never happened on planet earth?

As a result of the above observations, I have come to the conclusion that a Pre-OT should be introduced to and run on OT III in the following manner:

  1. Drill TR-8Q

  2. Clear all the data in the OT III pack excluding all the data which refers to Incident II and I. Exclude all data which evaluates for the Pre-OT as to what should be run and any data that states any horrible consequence of goofs on the level. Exclude anything that might scare or intimidate the Pre-OT. More specifically, you want to clear the information on mutual incidents and cluster formation, with the idea that any impact or severe experience could form a cluster. Clear how you find a BT or Cluster and how you run them with a narrow focus of attention. Clear the list of the type of incidents that could cause clusters. Anything and everything could be cleared except any reference to specific incidents such as Incident II and Incident I. The material on ownership and flying ruds on OT's should definitely be included in this step.

  3. Begin with audited OT III (solo later) by having the Pre-OT locate a reading pressure on or in his body. Next, have him get the date of the incident that made it a cluster and have the Cluster run the incident. This should blow the Cluster and if not, you can get an earlier similar cluster making incident and repeat the steps of date, locate, type and run the incident.

  4. After a few sessions, when the Pre-OT is doing this procedure easily and comfortably, he can begin to solo audit OT III using the same procedure as in (3) above.

Note:Individual BT's left over after the Cluster blows can be moved to and run through their own basic incident. All the other procedures for checking for copies, etc. remain the same.

At some point when the Pre-OT is running well on this procedure and is very stable and confident, he can be introduced to LRH's incidents with the R-factor that these represent what one individual found while running OT III and they may or may not be the incidents for the BT's and Cluster's he is running. Incidents I and II are just part of the case history of one particular Pre-OT. [ (2)]

The levels above OT III remain the same as they are - non-evaluative.

The above procedure has been producing excellent results with Pre-OT's I've been working with; such good results in fact, that I would never consider throwing somebody into the Incident I and II data again.

At this point, further bulletins need to be written which clearly delineate and detail all the steps involved in what could be called "NEW OT III".
