PAB No. 88 "The Conditions of Auditing"

Fundamentals of Thought


Another aspect of the ability to play a game is the willingness to win and the willingness to lose. An individual has to be willing to be cause or willing to be an effect. As far as games are concerned, this is reduced to a willingness to win and a willingness to lose. People become afraid of defeat and afraid of failure. The entire anatomy of failure is only that one's postulates or intentions are reversed in action. For instance, one intends to strike a wall and strikes it. That is a win. One intends not to strike a wall and doesn't strike it. That again is a win. One intends not to strike a wall and strikes it. That is a lose. One intends to strike a call and can't strike it. This is again a lose.

It will be seen in this, as well as other things, that the most significant therapy there is is changing the mind. All things are as one considers they are an in no other way. If it is sufficiently simple to give the definition of winning and losing, so it is simple to process the matter.

This condition is best expressed, it appears, in processing by a process known as "overwhelming".


An elementary way of running this is to take the person outside where there are number of people to observe and, indicating a person, ask "What could overwhelm that person?"

When the person answers this, he is asked about the same person, "What could that person overwhelm?"

He is then asked as the third question, "Look around here and tell me what you could have."

These three questions are run one after the other. Then another person is chosen and then the three questions are asked again. This process can be varied in its wording, but the central idea must remain as above.

The person can be asked, "What would you permit to overwhelm that person?" and "What would you permit that person to overwhelm?" and of course, "Look around here and tell me what you could have."

End Point

Run the process until a realization occurs, or an ability is regained.


It should be noted that asking the person to think of things which would overwhelm him could be fatal to the case. Where overwhelming is handled, the person should be given a detached view.

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.
