R2-32 Assignment of Attributes
Creation of Human Ability (R2-32)
The assignment of attributes is a process that uses the principle: Whatever the person is doing obsessively or compulsively, have him do it on a self-determined basis. Here we have the entire environment assigning meanings and attributes to the client. It seldom occurs to the person to assign attributes to himself. Throughout life, he has been insulted, made nothing of, or complimented, and he has begun to depend upon other-determined assignment of attributes.
First, clear the word attribute as "a quality, characteristic, or ability, factual, insulting, or flattering".
The commands are:
"Assign some attributes to other people." The processor continues with this command for some time and then asks: Now have some people assign some attributes to you," and, "Have them assign you some more attributes", then "some more," and "have them assign you some more attributes". One then returns to the first command with, "Assign some people some attributes" and so forth.
Finally, when the person is able to do this easily, the processor goes to this step of the process. "Now assign your body some attributes", and continue as to have the person assign attributes to his body.
Run the process until a realization occurs, or an ability is regained.
These objective assist processes are excerpted and compiled from the works of L. Ron Hubbard as part of a study of the Briefing Course materials. They are made available here for the purpose of discussion on spirit-l. Spirit-l is a list intended for the discussion of the philosophical underpinnings of clearing philosophies and methods. Frequent topics include self-betterment processes that can be done alone or in a coprocessing setting. There are "fair use" considerations as the works these quotations are taken from are copyrighted. The actual owner of the copyrights seems to be in question, but it most certainly is not I. Therefore, these fair use excerpts are available for Spirit-l list subscribers to prepare for, and participate in, the on-line discussion. It is also for others who, although unable to participate in the discussion of Hubbard's work at this time (perhaps lacking email access or available time), would like to prepare for such discussion on the above thread topics in the future. Just as one can copy a chapter out of a book to teach a class, and even a whole book using a chapter for each class, separate supplementary manuals will facilitate the different on-line discussion topics.
