ICAUSE CO BULLETIN 2003
Good Morning: This bulletin
is going to cover the a to b solo sequence. First I will discuss
the way the bridge was done in the old church, and then I will clarify
how the new Immortality Course lineup avoids some of the inherent
First of all, Ron discovered a few people
in the early days when no data was confidential being used to stop
others progress on the bridge. He gives one example of a man "chanting"
the 2 materials at his wife to key her in. She survived. He didn't.
As well, some of the materials started
turning up on "Bullbait". Students were keying each other
in with these materials. In all of the cases studied, it was found
that the person doing this was actually trying to harm the other
Then the confidential material were made
confidential, and secret. Ron simply followed the military procedures,
he was familiar with.
Somewhere along the line, there evolved
a great deal of secrecy, and very very tight security in the cos
regarding the materials of the upper levels. By 1980, you had to
have a locked briefcase for any of the solo folders, you studied
the ad courses in a locked room, you signed for the materials, and
if you lost anything, heaven help you.
When I was doing the upper levels, I was
unaware of the FZ, the Internet, or much of anything else out of
the cos. Now, I see the data, and recognize that even back then,
the materials were outside the church, and the cos was fighting
even then to keep these materials out of the general publics view.
There were also some folks who were printing
the OT3 data in local papers, and then sending copies of this material
back in the mailings sent from the orgs to unsuspecting letter regs.
One of these letters landed me in a pile of bpc, and got my folders
marked OT3, and thereafter, only OT3's could audit me.
It made my bridge progress much much slower,
although perhaps was a blessing in disguise because I only had OT
auditors after that.
Anyway, there are very good reasons that the data is confidential.
One of the major ones is that the pc / preOT will start to wander
around and try to run things that are above their level.
Many times I have found people on the
net that have read this stuff, most mixed with entheta and invalidation
of the material. Well, they get pretty confused to say the least.
You know: "The pilot says there are
16 dynamics, and since Jesus was a fag, and CBR got telexes from
Ron about the implanters, I noticed that in my case rah rah, and
since it is all so confusing, why is the moon made out of green
cheese, and how come we should run MOCO's for engrams, what is the
quickest way for me to be OT99 tomorrow, this headache is killing
Ha ha, you would say. No, this is a perfectly
serious request, and the person expects some sort of an answer.
Now in the old church, there was a perfectly
good lineup, though a rather long runway for the OT Sections. You
did not go near a Solo Session without all sorts of sec checks,
petitions to Flag for any out qualification, you finished the entire
solo course before you were even allowed to think about OT 1, much
less going out and running the damn thing.
On section 2, there were even more levels
of confidentiality, and by the time you got to three, even OT3's
would not mention the word "BT" to each other in a locked
room with no one around for miles. You damn near were afraid to
even write it on a piece of paper. You would be expelled for singing
the song "Take me to the Pilot" by Elton John. It was
pounded into me so hard that it took 15 years to loosen up enough
to even do a search of others who perhaps had studied the materials
on the net.
And the results were predictable. A year
or so between clear and OT1. Another couple for 2. More for 3, and
maybe 5 or 8 more for OT7. The stats showed it.
7: 1,000 (numbers here are examples)There less than .001 percent
of people making it all the way to OT7. There were a lot of OT1',
it only cost $80. After that, it nearly dropped to nothing. It was
a rare thing to hear a OT3 completion success story. OT5's were
unheard of nearly, and the amount of OT7's running around were negligible.
An OT7 was a very high, very respected state. They were rare indeed.
And this was in the time that it cost only $50,000 or less to make
it up the bridge.
The runway was just too long, the finances
were too difficult, and stranger and stranger things occurred to
"get the stats up". Eventually the orgs and staff went
criminal, and started cheating to not wind up in some sort of a
lower condition or on the RPF. And they blew, in large numbers,
and very quickly. "The Great Exodus" of 83 or so. Coming
out with a fake Ron did nothing to help. In fact, it increased the
flow of people out of the cos.
Here is a perfect example. I was D of P AshoF. We got orders to
"get the stats up". No auditors, no paying pc's. Well,
how? Someone got the bright idea that some of the pc's who were
not on lines at the time had several hours or so in their account,
and their pc folders had not been fesed in a long time. Well guess
what, we went through every single folder and had them fesed, and
that was charged to the pc's account. Some had not been in session
in years. But Horray! the stats went up. Fesing counts as 1/2 of
a WDAH. Joy, joy, the wdah is going up. Until we ran out of people
with back money on account. And then the stats really crashed, as
they were being padded, and were a false report to boot.
Meanwhile, I kept my own "private" stats, that showed
"Wdah with a pc holding cans". That continued to rise,
I was a very tricky fellow at getting around obstacles and getting
people actually in session. I ran a good hgc, we produced good products.
And I had a lot of unusual solutions, like trading off labor to
the BC sups to get the students to audit my PCs. I bribed a lot
of folks in those days, let me tell you. I did some things to get
people in session that I knew I would be shot over if anyone found
out, but I kept getting people audited.
Anyway, pretty soon these "old"
PCs started showing up. They had $200, $500, $1000 on their account.
Not enough for an intensive, but they would show up, and want some
books, or tapes, or a meter for the money. Surprise, surprise, there
was no money in their account. It was all gone in "fes charges".
They hit the roof. Some screamed and hollered, and got declared
over it. Others bitched an moaned, but all of them were very arcx
over it, and probably wasted another 5 hours of auditing time getting
this charge handled.
And it was ALL the orgs fault. Of course,
the execs sort of swept it under the rug. None of that was reported
up lines, you can bet your ass. The orgs were falling apart, staff
was at each others throat, and we were getting constant orders,
projects, must-be-got-in-right-NOW crap. And you would hardly start
on one project before you had three more to do at the same time.
A hundred hours a day was not enough to keep up. We just got further
and further behind. A few of us wise ones just sort of developed
a very believable q and a over these projects, tried to get the
dispatches lost in the general confusion, and kept on doing our
jobs the best way we could. Many could not handle it at all and
blew. Which overloaded even further the rest of us.
Then the "Recovery Missions"
were sent in. They started rpfing every upstat in sight. Pretty
soon it was a rats nest, and even good staff were going into apathy
about getting their jobs done. Of course within a couple of years,
everyone left who had any sense. Our spirit was broken. We had no
faith in the system, we had no faith that following he policies
of Ron were any protection at all. Justice was a joke, it was arbitrary
witch hunting. If you bitched, you were gone. If you didn't bitch,
you were a down stat and were gone. Damned if you did, damned if
you did not.
Anyway, that is the background that surrounded the "Secrecy"
of the upper levels. If you wanted even the faintest chance of doing
the OT levels, you were quiet as a mouse, and you said "yes
sir" to everybody. One tiny slip of the tongue to someone,
and they wrote a knowledge report that you were insecure with the
confidential materials, and you looked forward to a long long stint
of no sleep and washing dishes, cleaning grease pits, and general
degradation. That is if you were Sea Org. If you were a public,
you were simply gone, denied further training and processing forever,
denied communication with your friends and that was it.
After a while they quit putting out individual declares. Pretty
soon they were long lists of names. After that, they even quite
writing them at all. They were just mysteriously "SP".
No reason given, none needed.
I wander a bit from the subject. But this
was the general environment in the Orgs. Unknown to us, the FZ was
starting to develop, the terrible sp squirrels were having a field
day posting the very materials we were sweating blood and teeth
trying to get 25 hours a day. If we would have had any idea, we
would have emptied out in a day.
Now we enter the FZ. Joy, joy, we can
talk about anything we like, we can chant restimulative materials
at each other, we can pretend to be Ron, we can have all manner
of secret com lines to Ron and everyone else, and we can just alter
the tech and do anything we want with it. No one is going to do
a damn thing about it either.
A dogs breakfast of truth, lies, outright
deception, and a few trying to struggle along and actually get some
Now an innocent pc hits the FZ. They read all of this stuff. Most
slanted towards how evil the COS is, and how crazy Ron was. Mixed
in with people who get "secret messages" from him and
are the "only ones". Some poor fools actually fall for
it. And the "confidential" materials in every form from
accurate, to guaranteed to spin you permanently.
Faced with a criminal cos, and an insane
fz, what is the pc to do? That is where I came in, that is where
this organization leads. Back to the tech of Ron, pure and simple.
The policies written for the COS do not
apply. None of the situations in pt existed when Ron was writing
policy. And he wrote policy for the church, not for the fz.
Today, we are writing policy for the Church
of Advanced Universal Spiritual Enlightenment. We can not use
the copyrighted bridge. Therefore we must write our own materials,
and they must produce standard results. And many of the policies
written to protect the confidential materials are extinct, it is
too late, they are available to anyone with a modem and computer
The cat is out of the bag, and we better
just set about sorting out the truth from the lies. The upper sections
as delivered in the cos do not apply. Even if they did, they are
all copyrighted anyway. We cannot use them. And the bridge delivered
by the cos is extremely limited at best, totally unworkable at worst.
After all this background, I finally come
to the point. I have been clearing people with this procedure for
quite a while now. It is the result of quite a few mistakes and
corrections. It is the path of least resistance from clear to the
lower OT sections.
First of all, to handle Section 3, a person
is going to have to be able to audit, and audit well. However, doing
the briefing course before getting on section 1 is not necessary,
or even 3.
The principles that I use follow gradient
scales data. Only the skills necessary are trained for each level.
If they are unable to run the level, they have to have more training.
But this is fast flow. Read it, Drill it, Do it.
The first thing the new clear gets is
all the definitions of clear sorted out and understood. They understand
the mechanics of this, and get any uncertainty off, false data and
hidden standards about the state straightened up.
Then they study the nature of the time
track, the principal incidents that compromise the bulk of the upper
They study the nature of a being, read
the necessary references (history of man, etc). They study a brief
synopsis of what is included in the composite case, they review
the basic procedures and concepts of each of the OT sections through
Next, they are trained on all of the meter
drills that directly relate to the running of OT 2. Namely ability
to handle a meter, being able to produce all reads on a student
or coach, and knowing what produces each one.
Then they are trained in the admin procedures
necessary to keep an accurate solo folder, they know how to write
up a session, they know how to write the codes and worksheets on
a section 2 session.
They study the cc course materials. (This
is being revised, they will study a writeup from the cc materials
so they do not get confused with the cc course itself.)
Then they go in session and start running
Meanwhile they continue on the solo course.
They learn how to fly ruds, how to handle correction lists, they
learn to audit.
When this is done, they probably are finished
with section 2.
They then study the Section 3 data. Included
in this data are choice material from Section 5,6, and 7 (Nots)
that relates to the 3 materials.
Then the actual materials of 3 are ran.
While this is going on, at the same time they are continuing on
the checksheet, studying the materials of Nots, its handlings, and
By the time that Section 3 is complete,
they have great reality and fluency in the Nots technology.
They then start auditing the materials
of that level.
Now we have a person on OT7 who knows
what they are doing. They are then studying the materials of the
BC, the PDC, Perception of Truth, the tapes and bulletins that ensure
full understanding of what Standard Tech is, and they are applying
it to their case.
Above, or in this level, they will have
to know the techniques of many other contributors to the Upper bridge.
But by this time, they are able to sort out for themselves the truth
of the matter.
I have not given a lot of thought to the
upper OT sections. I could write things for weeks and weeks on it.
It would take me a year to even begin to put on paper what I know
The big lack we have now is a codified
procedure, and checksheet with pack that enables one to make it
on the upper levels.
This is an OT COURSE. A COURSE. It is
done gradiently. One level leads directly into the next. Gradiently
higher and higher skills are required of the solo auditor. They
become more and more proficient at auditing. It is a COURSE.
I nearly scream with frustration at some
of the questions I get. A person wants to know how to handle "off
planet implanters" and they have not even the foggiest idea
of why bypassed charge is indicated on an arcx, or why it reduces
Or they patty cake around with "BT's",
and do not even know that you go earlier similar on a basic, or
that these guys have chains and tracks.
Or they q and a with pictures, and run
off trying to do "unstacking" or "codes" or
something. God knows what they are doing or why. I just shuffle
them off to the "needs complete training from the bottom up"
box, and stick it on a back burner.
Now don't get the idea here I am blaming
anyone for any of this. Most of the lack is in a completely well
written summary, along with assembling and compiling a complete
OT Course checksheet and pack. Ron did it of course for the church,
but as we have seen, that does not apply any more. Just because
it does not apply here and now for us does not mean the technology
is incorrect. Far from it. It just means that studying all of it,
clearing up the words and confusions makes an unacceptably long
runway for the great majority.
Some will never make it without a few
years study, or even decades.
But, this is an a to b route, it stresses
greater understanding of the materials addressed, why, and how it
applies to the pre OT, and much less on confidentiality and arbitrary
I rambled a bit off of the original intention
when I started this bulletin. But this data is necessary to understand
why the bridge is being rewritten, and why a smoother approach is
