Finding your way after leaving the cult of Scientology

Ever wonder why you felt so crappy after getting Flag Auditing?

Quite possibly, you were treated to some of COB’s special rundowns to keep you indoctrinated, but even if you only had your rudiments flown, you were feeling the effect of  your Flag auditor’s tone level.

Ron Hubbard knew this could happen and he spelled it out in Science of Survival, CHAPTER TWENTY, COLUMN AQ  under this heading: Tone Level of Auditor Necessary To Handle Case. These few excerpts should help explain what was going on:

The auditor should be aware of the fact that the engrams of the preclear, his secondaries and locks, respond only in the presence of all available free theta. The theta of the auditor plus the remaining theta of the preclear are a sum which is directed at the entheta in the reactive mind of the preclear. It is a strange fact that the mere presence of an auditor makes it possible for the preclear to run incidents which he could not touch if no auditor were present…

…But the preclear who places himself in the hands of an auditor below 2.0 is asking for unsuccessful processing, since auditor code breaks will inevitably ensue and the case will be unwittingly mishandled, regardless of the apparent intention of the auditor…

…A group of auditors processing preclears but not being processed themselves will become, in a relatively short time, a veritable snake-pit of entheta and, willy-nilly, will go down the tone scale…

When was the last time you heard of Scientology, Inc. auditors getting enhancement?

This is what you should have experienced:

3.0 would be the lowest level of the auditor, for any truly successful auditing. At this level, the auditor will be interested, sympathetic, able to follow the auditor’s code with no strain, will be quick to understand any trouble which the preclear encounters, and can ordinarily, if properly educated, be expected to carry out a good and responsible role as an auditor. Furthermore, any discreditable data on a case which an auditor at this level uncovers in the life of the preclear will not be used as conversational material by the auditor. This is certainly not the case with low-tone auditors.

Why would I suggest that Flag and all Scientology, Inc. auditors are low toned?

First: They are treated badly, work long hours on little sleep and insufficient food.

And second: They are all striving to emulate the beingness of this psychopath. It is the only way for them to survice.

Read the entire chapter of Science of Survival and get some auditing to run out the low-toned auditors who have messed up your case.

A larger excerpt follows after the jump.

Science of Survival CHAPTER TWENTY COLUMN AQ
Tone Level of Auditor Necessary To Handle Case

This column is included as an estimate of optimum performance.
The auditor should be aware of the fact that the
 engrams of the preclear, his secondaries and locks,
 respond only in the presence of all available free
 theta. The theta of the auditor plus the remaining
 theta of the preclear are a sum which is directed
at the entheta in the reactive mind of the preclear.
 It is a strange fact that the mere presence of an
 auditor makes it possible for the preclear to run
 incidents which he could not touch if no auditor
 were present, although there have been preclears
who have successfully run out locks and some
 secondaries, alone. But self-auditing, normally,
 gets a case confused, and the presence of an auditor
 is very desirable. 

Auditors who are below 2.0 on the tone scale tend
 unconsciously, and even consciously, in the
 direction of succumbing. They have a ratio in
 themselves of more entheta than theta. Auditors
 below 2.0 on the tone scale have accomplished
 something with cases from time to time, because
 Dianetics can be, in part, mechanically applied.
But the preclear who places himself in the hands of
 an auditor below 2.0 is asking for unsuccessful
 processing, since auditor code breaks will
 inevitably ensue and the case will be unwittingly
 mishandled, regardless of the apparent intention of
 the auditor.

One can say, then, that 2.5 is the lowest level the
 preclear should accept in the auditor. And even this
 has some slight risk, since the interest of the 2.5
 auditor in the preclear is apt to be lackadaisical
 and not to encourage any great or rapid advances in
 the case.

3.0 would be the lowest level of the auditor, for any
 truly successful auditing. At this level, the
 auditor will be interested, sympathetic, able to
 follow the auditor’s code with no strain, will be
 quick to understand any trouble which the preclear
 encounters, and can ordinarily, if properly
 educated, be expected to carry out a good and
 responsible role as an auditor. Furthermore, any
 discreditable data on a case which an auditor at
 this level uncovers in the life of the preclear will
 not be used as conversational material by the
 auditor. This is certainly not the case with low
-tone auditors. 

When one is handling preclears from 1.5 down, one
 will normally discover that the
preclear is very highly restimulative to the auditor,
 is apt to become angry or recalcitrant or insulting,
 has a great deal of trouble contacting some of the
 entheta, and is in general so highly charged that
 great patience and tolerance is required of the
 auditor. This means, simply, that the auditor must
 not be easily restimulated by his preclear. Those
 cases from 1.5 down are highly restimulative, on the
 average. Cases from this level down, which are
 chronically psychotic or psychotic at the time of
 processing, which is to say cases which have all of
 their free theta enturbulated, particularly require
 auditors on a high tone level, for auditors at lower
 levels are apt to consider the psychotic too
 critically, and a critical or restrictive attitude
 toward the psychotic denies him his recovery.

Further, the psychotic demands of the auditor a high
 courage level, a level certainly not found below
 3.0, and guaranteed (given a good endowment of free
 theta and an education not contrary to courage) only
 at the 3.5 level. The psychotic, or persons who are
 on the tone band below 2.0 but who are easily
 enturbulated, has such a highly charged background
 in most cases that he may scream or express
 misemotion or dramatize to a frightening extent.
A fully enturbulated paranoid may very well attempt
 to kill an auditor during the processing session, if
 the auditor suddenly reminds the paranoid of an
 enemy. Below 3.0, the reaction of the processor
 toward the psychotic may be irrational to the point
 of hastily giving the psychotic sedation or putting
 him in restraint or giving him electric shock or
 ordering a prefrontal lobotomy, or doing any of
 those things, in short, which express crawling fear
 of another human being whose rationality cannot be
 trusted. 

A 1.5 trying to treat psychotics can think only in
 terms of punishment and nullification of the
 psychotic, and cannot possibly produce simply by his
 presence and the quality of his reasoning any
 alleviation in the case, but by his own fear further
 enturbulates the psychotic. Additionally, living in
 an environment filled with psychotics (such as an
 institution, with individuals dramatizing,
 screaming, being irrational or dully stupid) is
 intensely restimulating -- so much so that a
 considerable portion of the attendants and attending
 doctors of institutions themselves eventually find
 their way into the wards as patients. In short, it
 takes life and energy in an individual to bring into
 being life and energy in others. And conversely, that
person low on the tone scale, in order to climb up the
scale or even to exist at his level, pulls heavily
upon the life and energy of those around him.

The legends of vampires probably originated from an
 observation that some persons seem to have no life
 of their own but only express themselves in the
 vicinity of and at the expense of other individuals.
 Low-tone people commonly yearn to marry out of no
 other reason than that they can obtain from a mate
 the energy and life necessary to continue existence,
 or perhaps because here they have free theta to
 attack and desire to pull it down.

The auditor should be very cognizant of the fact that
 addressing entheta in a preclear is restimulative to
 the auditor. A certain amount of the auditor’s free
 theta is going to become enturbulated when he
 processes preclears. New locks, at the very least,
 will be formed on his own chains. Thus the
 enturbulation is not wholly temporary, but a certain
 amount of the enturbulation will become “permanent,”
 which is to say that it must be processed out. 

Auditors who are not themselves being processed are
 unsuccessful. A group of auditors processing
 preclears but not being processed themselves will
 become, in a relatively short time, a veritable
 snake-pit of entheta and, willy-nilly, will go down
 the tone scale.

The very least an auditor should do for himself if he
 is processing people is to keep the processing
 sessions he has done on other people scanned out of
 himself. He should consider that this is as
 necessary to him as eating and getting proper rest,
 for his own descent down the tone scale as a result
 of auditing will be so unobserved by himself that
 he will not know how low he has descended until he
 suddenly realizes that not only is he no longer
 taking any pleasure in auditing but he is facing the
 next session with considerable distaste. When this
 happens the auditor can be sure that through failure
 to observe the necessity of having these sessions
 lock-scanned he now needs processing fully as badly
 as his preclears. He should take, then, every
 possible measure to bring himself up the scale, and
 the most immediately indicated of these is having
 processing sessions scanned out. As the auditor
 descends lower and lower on the tone scale he tends
 more and more toward succumbing, and he will reach
 a point where he does not think he needs any
 processing. When this happens, he has become very
 enturbulated.

I was on the TTC tech training corp at Flag in 2004. I observed and was told by others that observed that the Flag auditors got no special treatment. The number of hours in the auditing chair had been set by LRH to be maximum of 25 as the folder had to be written up after each session which takes time. Unde Misgavage the # hours in the chair was upped to 50. I heard stories of auditors having 15 minutes to rush to the galley to eat or didn’t eat. They were not exempt from the normal schedule which we had which was to end the work day on a normal day at 10 but many nights having other stuff added like all hands cleaning til midnight or 1. On Friday nights after graduating there was all hands to sell the latest release and we couldn’t secure until we met our quota.

Excellent, David! I agree wholeheartedly and then some!

Yes, at Flag where the top auditors of the world used to be trained, treated with respect and honored as the most valuable people on the planet; now they are abused and used. That one fact alone should tell anyone with an ounce of intelligence that things are very wrong in RCS.
I recall the first time at the FSO when auditors were lumped together and acked on Auditor’s Day. It was shocking and appalling to me. My roommate, before being routed off FLB, was a NOTs auditor. She wanted to be a top Flag Auditor, she worked very hard at it. I used to drill her and listen to SHSBC tapes with her. The last time I saw her was in PAC 2007 when she was there for a tour. She had noticeably less ARC, noticeably was not happy. I was on my way out of the S.O. and the friendship we had shared at Flag might never have existed as far as she was concerned. It was all my fault and I was obviously not worthy of her care or attention. She had only been in the S.O. for about six years then, but that was the result. She was not auditing on Solo NOTs as she had been when she started in the S.O. When I left the FSO in 2001, she was already being thwarted in her attempts to go into session each day.

I was not clear in my previous post: I was referring to the roommate I had before I was routed off FLB and sent to PAC.

Management personnel who abuse “the most valuable beings on the planet” have created a recipe for disaster. When auditors are deliberately degraded, there is no way to deliver workable technology.

This non-comprehension of cause and effect is closing down the carnival of cluelessness. When there is no valuable product to exchange with public, there is no further reason for public to stay involved in Scientology, Inc.

I found that out when in 1980 CCNY was under the direction of Darby Simpson. Since thrown out of the church and declared.

Made a few attempts to continue my studies in Scientology, but gave up in 1990 due to continuous battles with staff and the unreasonably high cost of services.
