Axiom 51 tells you that postulates and communication as-is or changes MEST, but MEST does not change MEST. That, in essence is what that axiom says. Postulates and communication can change MEST, they can as-is, they can make is disappear. Just the fact of thinking something can make MEST disappear.

Now if we were to create a vacuum in the middle of this room, we would find the air of the room would rush into the vacuum. Absence of pressure in the vacuum would bring about a filling of the vacuum. Absence of pressure in the vacuum would bring about a filling of the vacuum by reason of the presence of pressure outside the vacuum, and we would get the vacuum filling up. Similarly, we can create an electronic vacuum by thinking a thought in the middle of a block of energy, and the block of energy will them move in upon it. We make a postulate or we communicate from the middle of a block of energy and we create a vacuum and the energy can move in upon it.

Above everything is consideration. All things are basically postulates and considerations. Even time itself is a process of knowingness and not-knowingness. One makes a consideration and so it is. He unmakes a consideration and so it is. But every time he thinks a thought, he punches holes in MEST. All things are basically a consideration. Energy itself stems from a consideration. And simply contacting thought is sufficient to make energy disappear. Now we think, and are accustomed to thinking that if some fellow is thinking "dog", we would have to get the thought "thinking dog" to make the energy mass connected with it disappear. Not true! It is the thought, the thinkingness, that makes it disappear, not the exact thought. If an individual cannot think a thought, he cannot, of course, make a decision. If you were to ask an individual simply "make a decision" and he was sitting there in his head or in the middle of a thetan bank with machinery all around, you would bring about the situation of restimulation.

The reason that he can't make a decision is that he really doesn't, on his own, dare think a thought all by himself. The best way in the world to get packed in tight in the middle of a bank is to go out and sit on a mountain top for fourteen days. I'm sure you would have to exteriorize out of self defense. You think enough thought to cave in energy to bring about a collapse of the bank, and I am sure you would see many phenomena. I'm sure you would see angels, demons, and everything. It would be quite an experience but it wouldn't be therapeutic.

For the first time, we know why an individual had better not self audit. If he doesn't have somebody to talk to, if he can't keep communication going, he cannot as-is the material that's flying in on him as fast as he is throwing it into restimulation by thinking in the middle of it; he's going to throw more into restimulation than he is going to get rid of.

We have in Level Three a process that you think is a subjective process. But really it is not, it is an objective process. A process that is run in a quiet place or session room with a processor. "Think a placed thought." He should be able to think elsewhere than where he is. Why anybody would think he is, I don't know.

When he thinks where he is he attracts energy to him. And he'll always be inside the energy that hits him. From the standpoint of not getting trapped, that's not the place to be. If you wish to maintain your mobility, you will have to learn to think a thought outside where you are. And so we have this process, and this process is totally and completely dedicated only to one thing. Practice in thinking a thought elsewhere until it's our thought and we can think it ably and we can do well by it.

But as we run the process, we get an additional phenomenon which is quite interesting. For the first time the individual is not getting pictures presented to him. The pictures are presenting themselves to the thought! In view of the fact that he is not looking from the center of the thought, he's merely thinking the thought over there, he doesn't usually notice that the pictures are present themselves over here for a change. And energy masses around his head and body have a tendency to fly away from where he is, or where his body is, and fly onto the place where he just thought the thought. So the drill is a very easy one. The object is to train the person to think thoughts exterior to his head and thetan bank.


"Think a thought in (or on) that (object). " The processor indicates the object or position.

The processor would indicate every time where the individual is to place the thought.

There is an alternate command that can be used:
"Do you see that (object)? Think a thought in or on it. Did the thought appear where it is?"

End Point

The process is complete when the individual can, absolutely and with great certainty, lively think the thought where you told him to.He is in one place and he's thinking the thought someplace else and he knows it's his thought and he has no difficulty in handling and controlling it. That's the end of the process.



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.
