Direction Reversal


Tape: 5403C18 4ACC-53 "Lecture on Orders: Duplication and Orders"
Tape: 5405C05 "Efficacity of Processes"


A process won't do the case any good if the process is being countered by some kind of machine that tells him to do the opposite. In other words, if the directions are thwarted at every turn by his automatic machinery. He, of course, isn't going to get very far unless your directions go immediately to the root of the problem, which is automatic machinery that direction reversals him. So the things to do is to find out what gives him a direction reversal. Well, it's this machinery. He's set it up at one time or another and it's made to reverse images and it reverses orders and gets to a point where it reverses words and reverses meanings and everything else. He'll begin to believe that the future is the past and all kinds of things as a result of such machinery.

You could start from the point of him being machines and taking awfully good care that you got him to be the machine. If that failed, which it shouldn't, your next step of the thing would be to set him an example while standing in front of him. You say "Raise your right hand." "All right, raise your right hand again." "Now raise your left hand." Just straighten him out mimicking you. But use reversed direction statements. Make him throw the action and the statement apart in other words.

You could say, "All right, what you want to do is to move your right foot" while you moved your left foot. "Now move your left foot", while you move your right foot.

Now you can tell him in reverse: "Move your right foot," and you move your right foot. And he has to move his left foot. Well, if he can master that, he can then follow your orders. Try it out.

"Now think of this carefully now, I want you to move your left hand."

You, of course, have the order as being much more significant than the actual direction.

Now follow the action and to heck with the words.

"Move your left hand. All right."

"Let's just get a mirror image duplication of what I'm doing now and to heck with the words."

"Now move your left hand."

If you get this straightened out between you and your viewer, you're liable to find out all of a sudden he can execute some of your orders.

You take the pressure off the words and actions. You give him a physical motion to follow. It doesn't matter which way you do it as long as you and the viewer are doing something to coordinate directions.

Coordinate word directions and motion directions. You just get something to coordinate them and you're all happy. He comes to an understanding of something. It feels good after awhile if he can do this with positiveness.

Another way to do it is to point south and say, "All right, north is south" and have him point north for south. Call north south; south north, east west, and west east. Have him get this very fixedly that these directions are inverted. Do anything you want to in this particular department and you will find that the machinery will all of a sudden start staring you in the eye, unless you simply set out to confuse him terribly. If you have set out to confuse him terribly, you will wind up with a confused viewer.

What you're trying to do is play with a machine that reverse everything.

You could say, "Now get the thought you must touch the top of your head. Got that?" "Now touch your feet."

"Now get the thought that you must touch your feet and touch the top of your head."

"Now get the thought that you must touch your right shoulder and touch your left shoulder."

"Now get the thought that you much touch your left shoulder and touch your right shoulder."

All of a sudden this horrible riddle of direction reversal will fall apart. But of course, the best thing to do is of course the first process I gave you, to be machines with some kind of certainty. Have him being machines. You actually have him be a direction reversal machine and perform its functions.

You'd tell him. "All right now, be a machine which changes all the orders around."

"Now I'm going to give you the order to stand up and you tell the body to sit down. You have the body receive the order and then you modify it."

"All right, now when I tell the body to stand up, you let the body receive that order but you tell the body to sit down. And enforce it."

"I'll tell the body to move its head and you make sure that the body holds its head still."

"I'll tell the body 'Lift your chin' and you correct the order and make the body drop its chin."


Part I:

Tell the viewer that he will be a machine that changes all the orders around. You will give the body a command and for him to let the body receive the order, then he will change the command.

"Now I'm going to give you order to stand up and you tell the body to sit down."

"Stand up."

"I'll tell the body to move its head and you make sure that the body holds its head still."

"Move your head."

The processor carries on in this manner, having the person change the orders around until an end point is reached.

Part II:

Stand if front of the viewer. Then give him orders to move a part of his body while you move the opposite part of your body.

"Move your right foot" while you move your left foot.

And then you reverse this.

"Move your left foot" while you move your right foot.

"Move your right hand" while you move your left hand.

Once he is doing this steadily and comfortably, you have him follow the physical motion without paying an attention to the words. Run this part until an end point is reached.

Part III:

Have the person point out directions in reversal.

"Say north is south and point south."

"Say east is west and point east.

The processor continues having the person reverse directions until an end point is reached.

Part IV:

"Now get the thought that you must touch the top of your head and touch your feet."

"Now get the thought that you must touch your feet and touch the top of your head."

The processor continues having the person run this until an end point is reached.

End Point

Run each part of 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.
