The sound of one hand clapping
By Phil Spickler
1 Nov 98

In response to recent communications of an interesting nature, I have decided to found an Untruth Commission, which I think will have no trouble being extremely successful as well as popular; and when its findings are published, they will be universally well-received.         

It seems as though the word "truth" has a pretty wide range of definitions and applications, ranging all the way from Ultimate Truth is Static, right down to some high-level abstraction like 2+2=4, with an enormous amount of stuff in between.  South Africa, I should like to say (as an opinion), is a lot like a chain of engrams -- at the top of the chain, things are pretty solid, very real, no charge gets blown, and the truth of it all is far from being viewed; whereas much earlier, or at the basic of the chain, may be found its governing postulates which brought it into existence in the first place, at which point it's possible to bring about erasure and to free up all the theta and convert all the entheta and enmest to a somewhat happier (if nonexistent) state.  In an effort to beat all you postulate-processors to the punch, let me say that those basic postulates are timeless and can be found as visible in the present moment, albeit with some difficulty in the face of all that obscures them.        

This is very unlikely to happen in that event known as South Africa as it proceeds through what is known as the apparent cycle of action.  Geologically speaking, it's all happened in a second and will be over in another second.  But one must have great compassion for the sufferings and solidities of the present top lock on what has been a wild and devastating chain of events for a lot of people.        

Without so much as a decent comm bridge I'd like to jump to another topic, which I'm sure will excite more interest and appeal more directly to most people than the entire history of South Africa -- namely, the second dynamic.  About 30 years ago (hard to believe) I was sitting in a course room listening to a lecture by L. Ron Hubbard, a taped lecture that is, in which he said, and I believe I am quoting directly at this time, the following: "The entirety of R6 is aimed at the second dynamic."  I feel certain that anyone that understands what is meant by R6 and the second dynamic, if they've not heard these words before, will want to sit back for a moment, make very sure they understand the statement, and then see if it applies to any of their experiences or the experiences of others on and across the 2D (second dynamic, if you will).        I've had many occasions over the years to consider the implications of that statement, both personally and otherwise, and I'm hoping over the course of some time, depending on the feedback from this latest outrage, to share and discuss experiences and observations connected with Mr. Hubbard's statement.  Meanwhile, a very cold and clammy hand has latched onto my ankle and is slowly drawing me down into a very cold and slimy earthen area where I plan to spend a delightful evening fighting for my life.  Hoping to hear from some of you fellow subscribers soon -- don't let my piteous screams bother you -- all the best, Phil
