Description: Hubbard reaffirms all the claims he made for Clear in Dianetics: The Modern Science of Mental Health.
There has been some confusion lately on exactly what is the state of Clear.
The confusion was introduced by a statement, not mine, that the state of Clear had harmonics, which is to say there were different states of Clear.
This is not true. Although it is quite impossible to obtain an absolute in this universe, the state of Clear is, actually, about as close as one can come to it.
I have given some time to it, lately, and have come up with a definition which fits all cases. It is as follows:
A CLEAR IS A BEING WHO NO LONGER HAS HIS OWN REACTIVE MIND.
The only exception, very, very, very rare, is one who didn’t have a reactive mind in the first place.
The Book One definition of Clear is valid.
There is even another chance at Clear if the person misses it in NED. He still can go on to an SH for his Solo Auditor’s Course and an AO for the old Clearing Course. It is even being worked out now so that he can begin his Solo Auditor’s Course right in his local org–he’ll need it to go on to OT.
A tiny percentage of people, who haven’t made it, want to declare themselves Clear as a status symbol, but when they try to go on to OT, it catches up with them, and in any event can be handled. The releases, given good auditing and a cooperative pc, are there to be had, and in cases that have not been wiped out by the psychs or who can be gotten into communication by an auditor and cooperate, the state of Clear is there to be had.
And it is just as worthwhile as it ever was.
