DOING A BUNK
“Doing a bunk” is an English slang term meaning “running away or deserting.”
In our terminology it means that a person shoots out of his head. He actually abandons the body, i.e., the being is really gone.
There is a difference between a thetan leaving the body and a thetan going unconscious. When a person is unconscious, he will still be breathing and will have a pulse. But when a person has left, pulse and breath may stop.
Someone who has done a bunk must be handled within three to four minutes. A maximum amount of time would be eight minutes, but by this time physical damage will probably have occurred.
An assist can be done to bring the person back to life. Anyone attempting such a handling must act fast.
When someone has done a bunk, there is still a communication line to the body. There is always a communication line to the body because the thetan is tuned up to the wavelength of the ridges of that body. Therefore, even if the thetan is six universes away, he can still communicate through the body.
If a person has done a bunk, you can simply order him to come back and bring the body to life. The commands are addressed to the person and should be given in a tone of authority.
It would be as simple as commanding, “Come back and bring this body to life!” Or ordering the person, “Come back here and pick up your body! At once! Pick it up! I order you! Right now!”
You just keep commanding him with Tone 402. He is still around and can be gotten to come back again.
There is another means of bringing a person back to life. You can coax the person back. In one case, an auditor pleaded along the lines that the person should remember her husband, should think of her children, and so on, all with no response. He couldn’t get her to pick up the body at all. Finally, the auditor said, “Think of your poor auditor!” at which point she came back and brought the body to life.
Once you have brought the person back to life, that is the end of this assist action. Of course, if it is needed, the person should be fully handled with medical treatment and further assist actions to make him completely well.

- Hubbard taught Scientologists on the Philadelphia Doctorate Course how to break people’s desire for sensation in order to keep them dissociated (out of their heads, or exterior); also, what to do when the body collapses; how to coax them back. Scientology’s “Mecca of Technical Perfection” in Florida sells the PDC tapes for $1,250, $1,125 cash. (Ref. 2008 price list, Source 202. ) ↩
