Note: Neglect of this Pol Ltr has caused great hardship on staffs, has cost countless millions and made it
necessary in 1970 to engage in an all out International effort to restore basic Scientology over the world. Within
5 years after the issue of this PL with me off the lines, violation had almost destroyed orgs. “Quickie grades”
entered in and denied gain to tens of thousands of cases. Therefore actions which neglect or violate this Policy
Letter are HIGH CRIMES resulting in Comm Evs on ADMINISTRATORS and EXECUTIVES. It is not
“entirely a tech matter” as its neglect destroys orgs and caused a 2 year slump. IT IS THE BUSINESS OF
EVERY STAFF MEMBER to enforce it.
KEEPING SCIENTOLOGY WORKING
HCO Sec or Communicator Hat Check
on all personnel and new personnel
as taken on.
We have some time since passed the point of achieving uniformly workable technology.
The only thing now is getting the technology applied.
If you can’t get the technology applied then you can’t deliver what’s promised. It’s as
simple as that. If you can get the technology applied, you can deliver what’s promised.
The only thing you can be upbraided for by students or pcs is “no results”. Trouble
spots occur only where there are “no results”. Attacks from governments or monopolies occur
only where there are “no results” or “bad results”.
Therefore the road before Scientology is clear and its ultimate success is assured if the
technology is applied.
So it is the task of the Assn or Org Sec, the HCO Sec, the Case Supervisor, the D of P,
the D of T and all staff members to get the correct technology applied.
Getting the correct technology applied consists of:
One: Having the correct technology.
Two: Knowing the technology.
Three: Knowing it is correct.
Four: Teaching correctly the correct technology.
Five: Applying the technology..Six: Seeing that the technology is correctly applied.
Seven: Hammering out of existence incorrect technology.
Eight: Knocking out incorrect applications.
Nine: Closing the door on any possibility of incorrect technology.
Ten: Closing the door on incorrect application.
One above has been done.
Two has been achieved by many.
Three is achieved by the individual applying the correct technology in a proper manner
and observing that it works that way.
Four is being done daily successfully in most parts of the world.
Five is consistently accomplished daily.
Six is achieved by instructors and supervisors consistently.
Seven is done by a few but is a weak point.
Eight is not worked on hard enough.
Nine is impeded by the “reasonable” attitude of the not quite bright.
Ten is seldom done with enough ferocity.
Seven, Eight, Nine and Ten are the only places Scientology can bog down in any area.
The reasons for this are not hard to find. (a) A weak certainty that it works in Three
above can lead to weakness in Seven, Eight, Nine and Ten. (b) Further, the not-too-bright have
a bad point on the button Self-Importance. (c) The lower the IQ, the more the individual is shut
off from the fruits of observation. (d) The service facs of people make them defend themselves
against anything they confront good or bad and seek to make it wrong. (e) The bank seeks to
knock out the good and perpetuate the bad.
Thus, we as Scientologists and as an organization must be very alert to Seven, Eight,
Nine and Ten.
In all the years I have been engaged in research I have kept my comm lines wide open
for research data. I once had the idea that a group could evolve truth. A third of Century has
thoroughly disabused me of that idea. Willing as I was to accept suggestions and data, only a
handful of suggestions (less than twenty) had long run value and none were major or basic; and
when I did accept major or basic suggestions and used them, we went astray and I repented and
eventually had to “eat crow”.
On the other hand there have been thousands and thousands of suggestions and
writings which, if accepted and acted upon, would have resulted in the complete destruction of
all our work as well as the sanity of pcs. So I know what a group of people will do and how
insane they will go in accepting unworkable “technology”. By actual record the percentages are
about twenty to 100,000 that a group of human beings will dream up bad technology to destroy
good technology. As we could have gotten along without suggestions, then, we had better steel
ourselves to continue to do so now that we have made it. This point will, of course, be attacked
as “unpopular” “egotistical” and “undemocratic”. It very well may be. But it is also a survival.point And I don’t see that popular measures, self- abnegation and democracy have done
anything for Man but push him further into the mud. Currently, popularity endorse degraded
novels, self- abnegation has filled the South East Asian jungles with stone idols and corpses,
and democracy has given us inflation and income tax.
Our technology has not been discovered by a group. True, if the group had no
supported me in many ways I could not have discovered it either. But it remains that in its
formative stages it was not discovered by a group, then group efforts, one can safely assume,
will not add to it or successfully alter it in the future. I can only say this now that it is done.
There remains, of course, group tabulation or co-ordination of what has been done, which will
be valuable-only so long as it does not seek to alter basic principles and successful applications.
The contributions that were worth while in this period of forming the technology were
help in the form of friendship, of defence, of organization, of dissemination, of application, of
advices on results and of finance. These were great contributions and were, and are,
appreciated. Many thousands contributed in this way and made us what we are. Discovery
contribution was not however part of the broad picture.
We will not speculate here on why this was so or how I came to rise above the bank.
We are dealing only in facts and the above is a fact-the group left to its own devices would not
have evolved Scientology but with wild dramatization of the bank called “new ideas” would
have wiped it out. Supporting this is the fact that Man has never before evolved workable
mental technology and emphasizing it is the vicious technology he did evolve-psychiatry,
psychology, surgery, shock treatment, whips, duress, punishment, etc, ad infinitum.
So realize that we have climbed out of the mud by whatever good luck and good sense,
and refuse to sink back into it again. See that Seven, Eight, Nine and Ten above are ruthlessly
followed and we will never be stopped. Relax them, get reasonable about it and we will perish.
So far, while keeping myself in complete communication with all suggestions, I have
not failed on Seven, Eight, Nine and Ten in areas I could supervise closely. But it’s not good
enough for just myself and a few others to work at this.
Whenever this control as per Seven, Eight. Nine and Ten has been relaxed the whole
organizational area has failed. Witness Elizabeth, N.l., Wichita, the early organizations and
groups. They crashed only because I no longer did Seven, Eight, Nine and Ten. Then, when
they were all messed up you saw the obvious “reasons” for failure. But ahead of that they
ceased to deliver and that involved them in other reasons.
The common denominator of a group is the reactive bank. Thetans without banks have
different responses. They only have their banks in common. They agree then only on bank
principles. Person to person the bank is identical. So constructive ideas are individual and
seldom get broad agreement in a human group. An individual must rise above an avid craving
for agreement from a humanoid group to get anything decent done. The bank-agreement has
been what has made Earth a Hell-and if you were looking for Hell and found Earth, it would
certainly serve. War, famine, agony and disease has been the lot of Man. Right now the great
governments of Earth have developed the means of frying every Man, Woman and Child on the
planet. That is Bank. That is the result of Collective Thought Agreement. The decent, pleasant
things on this planet come from individual actions and ideas that have somehow gotten by the
Group Idea. For that matter, look how we ourselves are attacked by “public opinion” media.
Yet there is no more ethical group on this planet than ourselves.
Thus each one of us can rise above the domination of the bank and then, as a group of
freed beings, achieve freedom and reason. It is only the aberrated group, the mob, that is
When you don’t do Seven, Eight, Nine and Ten actively, you are working for the Bank
dominated mob. For it will surely, surely (a) introduce incorrect technology and swear by it,.(b) apply technology as incorrectly as possible, (c) open the door to any destructive idea, and
(d) encourage incorrect application.
It’s the Bank that says the group is all and the individual nothing. It’s the Bank that
says we must fail.
So just don’t play that tune. Do Seven. Eight, Nine and Ten and you will knock out of
your road all the future thorns.
Here’s an actual example in which a senior executive had to interfere because of a pc
spin: A Case Supervisor told Instructor A to have Auditor B run Process X on Preclear C.
Auditor B afterwards told Instructor A that “It didn’t work.” Instructor A was weak on Three
above and didn’t really believe in Seven, Eight, Nine and Ten. So Instructor A told the Case
Supervisor “Process X didn’t work on Preclear C.” Now this strikes directly at each of One to
Six above in Preclear C, Auditor B, Instructor A and the Case Supervisor. It opens the door to
the introduction of “new technology” and to failure.
What happened here? Instructor A didn’t jump down Auditor B’s throat, that’s all that
happened. This is what he should have done: Grabbed the Auditor’s report and looked it over,
When a higher executive on this case did so she found what the Case Supervisor and the rest
missed: that. Process X increased Preclear C’s TA to 25 TA divisions for the session but that
near session end Auditor B Qed and Aed with a cognition and abandoned Process X while it
still gave high TA and went off running one of Auditor B’s own manufacture, which nearly
spun Preclear C. Auditor B’s IQ on examination turned out to be about 75. Instructor A was
found to have huge ideas of how you must never invalidate anyone, even a lunatic. The Case
Supervisor was found to be “too busy with admin to have any time for actual cases”.
All right, there’s an all too typical example. The Instructor should have done Seven,
Eight, Nine and Ten. This would have begun this way. Auditor B: “That process X didn’t
work.” Instructor A: “What exactly did you do wrong?” Instant attack. “Where’s your auditor’s
report for the session? Good. Look here, you were getting a lot of TA when you stopped
Process X. What did you do?” Then the Pc wouldn’t have come close to a spin and all four of
these would have retained certainty.
In a year, I had four instances in one small group where the correct process
recommended was reported not to have worked. But on review found that each one had (a)
increased the TA, (b) had been abandoned, and (c) had been falsely reported as unworkable.
Also, despite this abuse, in each of these four cases the recommended, correct process cracked
the case. Yet they were reported as not having worked!
Similar examples exist in instruction and these are all the more deadly as every time
instruction in correct technology is flubbed, then the resulting error, uncorrected in the auditor,
is perpetuated on every pc that auditor audits thereafter. So Seven, Eight, Nine and Ten are
even more important in a course than in supervision of cases.
Here’s an example: A rave recommendation is given a graduating student “because he
gets more TA on pcs than any other student on the course!” Figures of 435 TA divisions a
session are reported. “Of course his model session is poor but it’s just knack he has” is also
included in the recommendation. A careful review is undertake because nobody at levels O to
IV is going to get that much TA on pcs. It is found that this student was never taught to read an
E-Meter dial! And no instructor observed his handling of a meter and it was not discovered that
he “overcompensated” nervously swinging the TA 2 or 3 divisions beyond where it needed to
go to place the needle at “set”. So everyone was about to throw away standard processes and
model session because this one student “got such remarkable TA”. They only read the reports
and listened to the brags and never looked at this student. The pcs in actual fact were making
slightly less than average gain, impeded by a rough model session and misworded processes.
Thus, what was making the pcs win (actual Scientology) was hidden under a lot of departures
and errors..I recall one student who was squirreling on an Academy course and running a lot of
off-beat whole track on other students after course hours. The academy students were in a state
of electrification on all these new experiences and weren’t quickly brought under control and
the student himself never was given the works on Seven, Eight, Nine and Ten so they stuck.
Subsequently, this student prevented another squirrel from being straightened out and his wife
died of cancer resulting from physical abuse. A hard, tough instructor at that moment could
have salvaged two squirrels and saved the life of a girl. But no, students had a right to do
whatever they pleased.
Squirreling (going off into weird practices or altering Scientology) only comes about
from non-comprehension. Usually the non-comprehension is not of Scientology but some
earlier contact with an off-beat humanoid practice which in its turn was not understood.
When people can’t get results from what they think is standard practice, they can be
counted upon to squirrel to some degree. The most trouble in the past two years came from
orgs where an executive in each could not assimilate straight Scientology under instruction in
Scientology they were unable to define terms or demonstrate examples of principles. And the
orgs where they were got into plenty of trouble. And worse, it could not be straightened out
easily because neither one of these people could or would duplicate instructions. hence, a
debacle resulted in two places, directly traced to failures of instruction earlier. So proper
instruction is vital. The D of T and his Instructors and all Scientology Instructors must be
merciless in getting Four, Seven, Eight, Nine and Ten into effective action. That one student,
dumb and impossible though he may seem and of no use to anyone, may yet some day be the
cause of untold upset because nobody was interested enough to make sure Scientology got
home to him.
With what we know now, there is no student we enrol who cannot be properly trained.
As an instructor, one should be very alert to slow progress and should turn the sluggards inside
out personally. No system will do it, only you or me with our sleeve rolled up can crack the
back of bad studenting and we can only do it on an individual student, never on a whole class
only. He’s slow = something is awful wrong. Take fast action to correct it. Don’t wait until
next week. By then he’s got other messes stuck to him. If you can’t graduate them with their
good sense appealed to and wisdom shining graduate them in such a state of shock they’ll have
nightmares if they contemplate squirreling. Then experience will gradually bring about Three in
them and they’ll know better than to chase butterflies when they should be auditing.
When somebody enrols, consider he or she has joined up for the duration of the
universe- never permit an “open-minded” approach. If they’re going to quit let then quit fast. If
they enroled, they’re aboard, and if they’re aboard, they’re here on the same terms as the rest
of us- win or die in the attempt. Never let them be half-minded about being Scientologists. The
finest organizations in history have been tough dedicated organizations. Not one namby-pamby
bunch of panty-waist dilettantes have ever made anything. It’s a tough universe. The social
veneer makes it seem mild. But only the tigers survive-and even they have a hard time. We’ll
survive because we are tough and are dedicated. When we do instruct somebody properly he
becomes more and more tiger. When we instruct half-mindedly and are afraid to offend, scared
to enforce, we don’t make students into good Scientologists and that let’s everybody down.
When Mrs. Pattycake comes to us to be taught, turn that wandering doubt in he eye into a
fixed, dedicated glare and she’ll win and we’ll all win. Humour her and we all die a little. The
proper instruction attitude is, “You’re here so you’re a Scientologist Now we’re going to make
you into an expert auditor no matter what happens. We’d rather have you dead that incapable.”
Fitting that into the economics of the situation and lack of adequate time and you see the cross
we have to bear.
But we won’t have to bear it forever. The bigger we get the more economics and time
we will have to do our job. And the only things which can prevent us from getting that big fast
are areas in from One to Ten. Keep those in mind and we’ll be able to grow. Fast. And as we
grow our shackles will be less and less. Failing to keep One to Ten, will make us grow less..So the ogre which might eat us up is not the government or the High Priests. It’s our
possible failure to retain and practise our technology.
An Instructor or Supervisor or Executive must challenge with ferocity instances of
“unworkability”. They must uncover what did happen, what was run and what was done or not
If you have One and Two, you can only acquire Three for all by making sure of all the
We’re not playing some minor game in Scientology. It isn’t cute or something to do for
lack of something better.
The whole agonized future of this planet, every Man, Woman and Child on it, and your
own destiny for the next endless trillions of years depends on what you do here and now with
and in Scientology.
This is a deadly serious activity. And if we miss getting out of the trap now, we may
never again have another chance.
Remember, this is a our first chance to do so in all the endless trillions of years of the
past. Don’t muff it now because it seems unpleasant or unsocial to do Seven, Eight, Nine and
Do them and we’ll win.
