A DICOM is a DIchotomy of Comparable and Opposite Magnitude. Beauty
and Ugly, Good and Evil, Immortal and Mortal are such dichotomies,
or dicoms for short.
A locked dichotomy is when one side of a dichotomy is always and
compulsively associated with the same side of another dichotomy.
For example, Good is always Beautiful, and Evil is always Ugly.
Locked dicoms are what makes a thetan human and in fact freeing
up these dichotomies is the route to OT.
An OT is someone who is willing and able to become a human being.
He is also willing and able to create all the horrible circumstances
that these poor human beings find themselves in. Volcanoes, Earthquakes,
Tornadoes, Tidal Waves, Asteroids, Ice Ages, Catastrophes, Pestilence,
Plague, Famine and Fear.
An OT is able to find Beauty in CREATE SURVIVE DESTROY, humans
are only able to find Beauty in SURVIVE. No human in his right
mind would have CREATED the world in the condition it is in. Everything
needs to live by killing something else for food. This is horror
at its best. A human finds it hard to swallow, an OT can see the
aesthetic to it. Some people handle this problem by saying that
everything that is good was made by God, and everything bad was
made by humans. But the truth is that everything was made by God
who then became those humans. Thus God finds beauty in living
by killing, in lifetimes of work being wiped out by the convulsions
of the ground, and by the arbitrary ending of it all by the slightest
misstep of the cosmos. God is into games, he is into PLAYING.
Humans are into WINNING. Humans feel that if they lose the game
of survival, of finding food, getting a job, staying alive as
a body, they will not be able to play any more games. Therefore
they MUST win at all costs. This opens he door to Corruption,
Temptation and Seduction, and getting others to play for you,
to take the risks and let you reap the rewards.
Needing to WIN a game in order to be allowed to play further games
later is the basic on the demise of sportsmanship in life with
its attention on how you play rather than whether you win. If
losing a game means you DIE, then to hell with how you play, let
the other guy die for you and win yourself at all costs. You can
see the strain this puts on Honor, Dignity and Ethics, not to
mention Nobility, Courage, and Decency.
Further, humans resent these games where they think they must
win to continue playing other games, so they would never create
such games for themselves, but they are also totally unwilling
to destroy these games for they think it is the only game they
have. Thus they are into SURVIVAL of the game, and not into CREATION
and DESTRUCTION of the game. Thus Gods are into CREATE SURVIVE
DESTROY. (PLAYING) Humans are only into SURVIVE. (WINNING) Gods
do not associate the losing of any particular game with not being
able to play ever again, because Gods can MAKE games and DESTROY
them. Humans are only able to PLAY them until they lose for good.
In fact if you ask any human with any honesty still left in his
bones, what he really thinks of God, he will tell you the Guy
is a monster. At the least the human will say that he himself
would not have made the world the way it was, and he can't quite
figure out what God is about. Well Gods are about PLAYING games
and they remain Gods to the degree that they keep PLAYING the
game in mind. To a God WINNING or LOOSING a game both result in
the loss of the game, and the need to CREATE a new one.
Humans are into WINNING games, and they remain human to the degree
that they pay attention to WINNING games at the expense of PLAYING
them. It is a cruel trick to connect the playing of future games
to the winning of present games. That is something only a God
would do to himself in his quest to become human.
So what God is about is unlocking dichotomies, and if you want
to become a God, an OT responsible for your own condition and
everyone else's too, then you will have to unlock all the dichotomies
in your mind.
Consider for example Beautiful Evil. Kind of Monstrous, eh? But
there could not be any Evil in the world if it weren't Beautiful!
For a thetan can not natively create anything that is not Beautiful.
That is why people freak out on LSD, they go up to these higher
planes of existence, they see all this weird beauty they can't
understand and they get overwhelmed by the strangeness of the
other determinism of it all. Who wants to be totally responsible
for all the Evil in the world? However, if they are bright, they
will find the humor and laugh their heads off for 8 hours. ((LSD
trips last for 8 hours.))
Evil is not a mistake.
Evil is not a flaw.
Without Evil there is no Humor.
If you never find the Evil you will never find the Humor. And
if you never find the Humor, you will never find the Peace. People
can't handle LSD, because it takes them up into the OT AESTHETIC
BANDS that were used to create this house of horrors we call Earth
in the first place.
That's the 9th dynamic of Scientology, AESTHETICS.
We are not recommending that everyone go out and commit Evil,
that's not OT, that's human. The human wants to do Evil to others,
but have no Evil done to him. The OT is willing to create an entire
universe of Evil and then jump into it HIMSELF. He invents things
to EAT HIM. If others want to jump into his game and get eaten
too, well they are most welcome but he will probably charge them
a buck or two for the privilege.
The OT that creates Evil is not BEING Evil, he is being BEAUTIFUL.
The human that gives up fighting Evil in apathy, and goes over
to the Dark Side of the Force, is not being beautiful, he is being
Evil. So the following processes might be used to get someone
to look at and cognite about his own locked dichotomies and possibly
take himself to a more serene but Godly state about the world
around him. It's nice to be able to move objects at a distance
and read minds a couple of countries away, but it also helps to
be able to walk through the day and not be constantly suppressing
fear and shutting out thoughts about death and what comes after
and what came before. THAT is the true benefit of being an OT.
It is not in the ability to move mountains, but in the ability
to NOT be moved in your soul unless you should so chose. Emotional
peace, humor and serenity along with the willingness to scare
the hell out of yourself, are much higher goals than the ability
to scare the hell out of others with physical powers. If you don't
have emotional Godhood, you are just bound to misuse the physical
Godhood trying to protect your own human heart.
True Physical Godhood arises from Emotional Godhood, which arises
from Mental Godhood which arises from Spiritual Godhood.
But emotional Godhood is the ability to see the beauty of suffering,
the beauty of a whole world who can't see the beauty of anything.
If you can walk in THAT battle field and have a good time, then
you are truly an OT.
People create the Evil because they want the Humor at the end.
That's your job as an Auditor, to walk your pc from the depths
of despair to the reliefs of laughter.
Many will not get the joke and many will try to stop you on your
way, but all will be gotten someday.
You don't get there by FORCING the matter. Reattaining OT aesthetic
awareness is a big deal, one that will take most people many lifetimes
to accomplish if and when they even try.
People try to reach OT by pretending that pain does not matter,
or by taking on an evil valence and laughing at the pain of others.
But they find little humor in the pain they have suffered themselves.
THAT'S what auditing is all about, finding the humor to your own
pain, your own ludicrous demise.
Thus running Beautiful Evil and Ugly Good will go a long way to
giving your pc a glimpse of the OT states he is headed for. A
minimum cognition might be along the lines of 'The purpose of
Beautiful Evil is to destroy Ugly Good, and the purpose of Beautiful
Good is to destroy Ugly Evil', etc.
But don't evaluate for your pc, let him struggle with the concepts
himself. He is an OT after all and only he can understand the
beauty of his own Hell.
At which point there will be no Hell for him, only a Heaven of
clear sweet laughter ringing forever in the hallways of Eternity.
And of course Peace.
Another thing you are going to come across is the fact that your
pc has Eternity confused with an INFINITE AMOUNT OF TIME. Eternity
is timeless and 'above' time. The Big Snooze is up in that area
and is the
Big Rest or the Big Sleep.
It is Eternal in that the thetan can stay there as 'long as he
wants' and can not be impinged upon unless he should so choose.
However he does not HAVE to stay there and can instead choose
to 'wake up at any time' and enter a dream, and play a game or
join others playing a game. Once in a time stream, the thetan
can start to think of Eternity as an infinite amount of time.
This is a Big Error. When he decides he doesn't want to play a
game any more, rather than leave the time stream behind, he tries
to rest IN the time stream. He tries to reattain the Big Snooze
by going to sleep in the dream.
But as long as he is in the time stream he can be impinged upon
and WILL be eventually. Thus he gets the idea that he can not
rest as long as he might want, and suddenly the thought of 'living
forever' becomes a nightmare to him.
Living is enforced work. Dying is inhibited work. The Big Snooze
is freedom from either and the willingness and ability to choose
both. Thus the thetan gets into a problem with living forever
because he detests having to be conscious beyond his own willingness
to be so. He can't drop out at any time, mainly because he is
trying to drop out by dropping in further, ((into further unconsciousness))
and he starts to try to make himself go to sleep forever while
still in the time stream. Failing this he will then take on beingness's
that hold out the PROMISE of being able to sleep forever (dying)
and that may be part of how some thetans came to be 'mortal' humans.
Which is worse, to HAVE to be awake forever, or to HAVE to be
asleep forever? You see once the CHOICE is gone, the thetan detests
either, and will yo-yo back and forth between various solutions
that allow him to live forever or die forever.
He doesn't want to die forever so he tries to live forever. But
then he doesn't want to live forever, so he tries to die forever.
Both are intolerable because being conscious forever or being
unconscious forever are alike hells.
He will thus get stuck in the Ugliness of Immortality and the
Ugliness of Mortality, and what ever you talk to him about, he
won't want to know about it. This is possibly a basic on inaccessibility.
As for those still bent on 'solutions' of one kind or another,
a little discussion will show them that their solution falls far
short of what they really desire, which is freedom to be awake
or not awake at will.
Ask any Christian if he will be ABLE to sleep forever once he
gets to Heaven. He won't appreciate your wake up call.
Thus the following processes will go a long way to breaking this
material open on your pc. This is not for your sweetness and light
case who wants to be a better human. This is for those of you
who want to go OT in this life and are willing to risk death to
attain it. If you are still protecting your little life bubble
in this dream you probably should steer clear of this stuff.
Or perhaps you should pay for Church auditing. That's a good chunk
of what you are paying for there, you know, SAFETY.
If you are prepared to face your Maker alone with an even keel
then by all means, dive in.
Run it absolutely muzzled, don't say a word to your pc except
when you ask the question. Then let the pc answer and TELL YOU
WHEN THEY ARE DONE. Then give them the next question. Go around
and around the questions. You won't have to run it for long before
they either bolt out the door or start some serious cogniting.
'Tell me about Beautiful Good.'
'Tell me about Ugly Good.'
'Tell me about Beautiful Evil.'
'Tell me about Ugly Evil.'
'Tell me about the Beauty of Immortality.'
'Tell me about the Ugly of Immortality.'
'Tell me about the Beauty of Mortality.'
'Tell me about the Ugly of Mortality.'
There's another little thing you might be interested in. People
tend to fall down the tone scale in steps and they fall down these
dichotomies into a locked condition in the same way.
A guy is born and has a good memory and records lots of fun times
in it. So he's into the Beauty of Memory. Then one day he gets
mad at his mother and kills her in a fit of rage, but then he
regrets what he did and so he begins to regret the day he was
born. His Memory begins to bother him with guilt and he wishes
he could forget what he did.
This is the Ugly of Memory.
After a couple of trips to the drug store or the local opium den
he finds that his memory is gone and he has forgotten what he
didn't want to remember. Eventually he doesn't even know he has
forgotten something. His safe solution is 'Don't dwell on the
past, what's gone is gone, better to leave it buried, time heals
all wounds.' This makes him feel better, so he is into the Beauty
of No Memory.
He will also be totally opposed to any form of Scientology Auditing.
A long time later he realizes he has fallen into a pit and can't
remember a thing and he feels really bad about this. So this is
the Ugly of No Memory. At this time he becomes a suitable candidate
for Scientology Auditing if he has any money left from the opium
dens. You can run this with the following.
'Tell me about the Beauty of Memory.'
'Tell me about the Ugly of Memory.'
'Tell me about the Beauty of No Memory.'
'Tell me about the Ugly of No Memory.'
Just run them around in a circle as above totally muzzled.
QUESTIONS AND ROTE FORM
On any of these questions, if your pc can't get any specific answers
to them, use 'Get the idea of'. In other words instead of
'What have you done to a Child as a Parent?'
'Get the idea of doing something to a Child as a Parent.'
Your pc merely has to 'get the idea of' and say 'ok', and you
give the command again. Often your pc will get the efforts involved,
the overts, the withhold, the 'refuse to talk about it', and never
get what it is he did. This is fine, its called effort processing
and can release untold quantities of subterranean charge from
the central core of your pc's bank.
Another minor point, the literal answer to a question like 'Have
you done anything to a Child as a Parent?' is yes or no, but what
you want is WHAT was done. Thus the correct question is 'WHAT
have you done to a Child as a Parent.' But this assumes the pc
HAS done such a thing which he may not have. The clumsy way to
handle this, is to first ask him if he has done something, and
if he says yes, then ask him what it is. But this is getting lost
in rote form which can be a session killer and an ARC Break to
I am assuming you are auditing either yourself or a very well
educated pc who can take full responsibility for the session and
the auditor (who should be doing the same thing!). Thus as long
as the pc understands what you are asking for and the intent of
the question, it doesn't matter how you word it, and in fact you
will find that often the wording should be changed to get the
biggest bite out of it.
For example there are many ways to ask for a withhold. Not all
of them will read, and not all of them will bite, even though
the withhold is right there and begging to be pulled.
'Do you have a withhold?'
'What are you withholding?'
'Are you withholding anything?'
'Is there a withhold?'
'Some withhold in present time?'
'Have you ever withheld anything?'
'What have you done?'
'What are you doing?'
'What don't you want others to know about?'
'What do you still not know if they know?'
'Is there some sort of withhold?'
'Does this have something to do with withholds?'
'What are you holding in?'
'What are you holding back?'
'What are you holding inside?'
'What are you not talking about?'
'Are you refusing to talk about something?'
'Are you refusing to say something?'
'Something not said?'
'What are you not auditing?'
'What is the hottest subject on your track?'
'Is there something here that is refusing to read?'
'Is there something here that is refusing to audit?'
'Is there something here that is unauditable?'
'Is there an unauditability?'
'Something you are keeping inside?'
'Something you are not talking about?'
'Something you are not telling me?'
'Something you are not telling me about being a girl?' (for a
'Something you are not telling me about being a boy?' (for a girl)
'Something you are being secretive about?'
'Something you would rather not say?'
'Something you are refusing to talk about?'
'Something you are refusing to say?'
'Something you are not saying?'
'Something you won't communicate about?'
'Something you are not coughing up?'
'Something you are clammed up about?'
'Are you all clammed up?'
'What question should I not ask you?'
'What subject should I not bring up?'
'What has disturbed you deeply?'
'What overts of others has left you disturbed?'
'What question could I use to ask for a withhold?'
That last one is a whole process in itself. You keep asking it
and getting answers to it until you find the blow down question,
and then you ask IT to find the withhold.
It's something the Church has very little to do with, auditing
pc's on how they should be audited.
'What subject are you not auditing?'
'How could I audit you?'
'What question should/could/might I ask you?'
You don't ask these just once and then do what the pc says, you
run them like any process, sometimes for hours.
In the end he may grok 'Do you have a withhold?'. If not, use
what ever form bites the easiest and deepest.
It can be frustrating to know there is material to find, and that
you are asking the 'correct' question and still nothing is reading
and nothing is coming up. It MAY be because you need to have the
EXACT correct question for the pc, which can only be found by
trying them all or letting the pc tell you what it is.
Don't worry about the grammar of the question, whole track thetan's
care little for grammar. Adding in a word to make the grammar
correct might totally destroy the questions ability to bite!
'Something you are clammed up about?' may work much better than
'Is there something you are clammed up about?' 'Something you
are not saying?' may work wonders, where 'Are you not saying something'
may fall flat on its face.
When you are auditing solo or assessing another on the meter,
you should re-word questions until you find the form that reads
the best and deepest. It will often be the shortest most blunt
form with the fewest proper grammatical words to make your English
It may be different for every pc. The Church's rote auditing patter
falls short in this department, and is partly responsible for
so many glaring upsets and withholds being missed. The auditor
asks the question, the needle does not read, so it is declared
clean, and the pc walks away grumbling and disappointed. This
is often blamed on bad TR's or impingement, but more often than
not it is just the wrong form of the question was asked.
Most pc's don't think they are paying $250 an hour to be queried
about how they should be audited. This is a big mistake. The entirety
of Scientology is in implants on the early track, it is the record
of how to get out. Thus you need to get the exact wording of the
implants FOR THAT PC before your auditing will really bite. 'Do
you have a missed withhold?' and 'Has a withhold been missed?'
both ask the same thing, but one will read and the other will
miss the withhold. If you ask the wrong question the pc won't
be able to find the material because he will be asking himself
the same question you asked him and it won't bite. 'What do you
still not know if they know?' will often dig up answers and missed
withhold charge that other questions will bury.
Thus with any process that I post, I often post them in their
most expanded and grammatically correct form so that complete
understanding is transmitted. But when you go to run them you
should find out the form that makes the most sense to your pc
and creates the most fireworks in their case.
Often you will have to change the ORDER of the questions to get
them to run right. For example, if you ask
'What have you done to a child as a parent?'
'What has a parent done to you as a child?'
which is the order that I usually post these things, your pc will
often fall into the trap of giving an answer for the first question
and then saying 'same thing' for the second question. This puts
your pc on a dangerous automaticity that will prevent new answers
and charge from running out.
Thus I provide you below another VERY POWERFUL set of questions
in a more suitable order for getting charge off the case. I will
leave it up to you to figure out the standard order, and spot
and label which is the motivator, the overt, the ded and dedex.
Don't run the following processes unless you are prepared for
the consequences and prepared to continue on through to a win.
If you start this stuff on a lark, and get scared in the middle
and don't complete it to a win, you will leave yourself or your
pc in a miserable state far worse than he or you started off with.
Remember people have to go to work, they have kids to take care
of, so don't go throwing them into the Devil's Lair unless you
and they are totally prepared to finish the job.
I also presume you all know by now, that when running these 8
flows of forgetfulness, you need to run all 8, even if I post
only the first 4 of them.
Also 'What you have done to a child' always means 'as a parent
in a past life' and 'what you have done to a parent' always means
'as a child in this life', etc.
If you are a parent in this life and already have children, and
you run what you have done to your children in this life only,
the processes won't work, because what you are doing to your children
now has nothing important to do with what your parents did to
you as a child, which is what you are trying to resolve.
Children are the effect of their bad parents only to the degree
that they were BAD CAUSE as a parent in a PREVIOUS life. What
you do to your child as a parent in this life, will set you up
for a fall as a child in your next life.
You can BLAME your own bad parenting in this life on your upbringing
as a child in this life, but that's just a DED looking for a justification.
Children have an excuse for dramatizing.
If you try to run out what a parent is doing to his child by looking
to what was done to him AS a child, it will never run out. Parents
aren't dramatizing motivators, they are committing DEDS. You run
out present life DEDS by getting them recognized, confessed and
repented along with all of their justifications, and then taking
them earlier similar to past life DEDS, and times the parent tried
to blame his bad parenting on being mistreated as a child. That
blame is just another DED.
The following questions are deceptively simple. Keep in mind the
anger/regret cycle, and the No-Sympathy Sandwich, and everything
you know about justification, restraint, refused apology and refused
communication while running these.
'What have you done to a Child on the subject of Mortality?'
'What has a Child done to you on the subject of Mortality?'
'What have you done to a Parent on the subject of Mortality?'
'What has a Parent done to you on the subject of Mortality?'
