Description: The Introspection Rundown is Hubbard's technical solution for people having psychotic breaks. Lisa McPherson was on the early steps of this rundown, incarcerated at Scientology's Mecca for Technical Perfection in Clearwater, Florida, when she died a horrific death in 1995.
I have made a technical breakthrough which possibly ranks with the major discoveries of the twentieth century. It is certainly the greatest advancement of 1973 and is now being released after a final wrap-up of research. It is called the Introspection Rundown.
The purpose of the Introspection RD is to locate and correct those things which cause a person to fixate his attention inwardly, on himself or his bank. This RD extroverts the person so that he can see his environment and therefore handle and control it.
In 1970 the actual cause of PSYCHOSIS was isolated (as given in HCOB 28 Nov. 70, C/S Series 22, PSYCHOSIS.) In the ensuing years this has been proven beyond doubt to be totally correct.
But what is a psychotic break?
Man has never been able to solve the psychotic break. In fact, human beings are actually afraid of a person in a psychotic break and in desperation turn to psychiatry to handle.
Psychiatry, desperate in its turn, without effective tech, resorts to barbarities such as heavy drugs, ice picks, electric and insulin shock which half-kill the person and only suppress him. The fact remains there has never been a cure for the psychotic break until now.
The key is WHAT CAUSED THE PERSON TO INTROSPECT BEFORE THE PSYCHOTIC BREAK.
The breakthrough was made on a person who, after a series of wrong indications, went into a full-blown psychotic break–violence, destruction and all.
The psychiatrist at this point would have sharpened up his ice pick, filled his syringes with the most powerful (and deadly) drugs he could find and turned up the volts. His “handling” would have been a final destruction of the individual.
What was done was an auditor went into the room, sat the person down and corrected the last severe point of wrong indication. Subsequent times of wrong indication in his life were cleared up, the person came out of the psychotic break and into present time.
THIS MEANS THE LAST REASON TO HAVE PSYCHIATRY AROUND IS GONE.
The psychotic break, the last of the “unsolvable” conditions that can trap a person, has been solved.
And it’s quite simple, really.
Def. EXTROVERSION: “. . . Means nothing more than being able to look outward ….” “An extroverted personality is one who is capable of looking around the environment ….” “A person who is capable of looking at the world around him and seeing it quite real and quite bright is of course in a state of extroversion.” (Problems of Work.)
The end phenomena of the Introspection RD is the person extroverted, no longer looking inward worriedly in a continuous self-audit without end.
The EP on a person in a psychotic break is the end of the psychotic break.
The RD is very simple and its results are magical in effectiveness. Flubs can wreck it so don’t permit them.
You have in your hands the tool to take over mental therapy in full. You need not fear the insane or the psychotic break any longer.
Here also is the cure for the continual self-auditing pc who is dug into his bank. It works on all pcs in fact with rave results.
Do it flawlessly and we all win.
