Description: Hubbard discusses sinners and "wide-open cases", DEDs, motivators; gives a case history of a person who abused a dog and how the case is interrogated with an E-Meter;defines a "synthetic person"; says the psycho case with wide-open recall is living as sort of a demon circuit;gives instructions on how to handle occluded cases.
Now, look at this pattern: overt act, overt act, overt act, etc., and then all of a sudden the guy gets a counter-effort. Beware of your great sinners. The fellow will come up and say, “Yes sir, I’m really a great sinner.” He has been a sinner all- right, but not in the same way you think. He has been a b-a-a-a-d boy. As these incidents come up, this individual hits the counter-effort and the incidents will ball-up.
They will ball up very strongly, because after he has gotten the counter-effort, he will try to do the overt act and he will get the counter-effort, and then an overt act and then the counter-effort, etc. etc. You will get this cycle repeating so that it makes a chain, and the chain is “maybe’s”.
If you have anybody who has a time track that just isn’t there, you can count on the fact that this DED1 situation exists. By the way, if you have anybody that is a wide open case entirely, that is completely clear all up and down the time track (this life), you can count on something else having existed. They have been rubbed out so thoroughly at the beginning of this life that the bank is missing. It’s not actually missing, it’s just way over there somewhere, but they have eidetic recall. What you are trying to get is whole track eidetic recall. If you can get that, that’s fine.
You get a person who has one life eidetic recall, and there is just nothing before that – well, you know that their whole facsimile bank has been parked sideways by force. You will find this condition every once in a while. This person has been wiped out. This person then, is more prone to a DED situation than other people, because anybody who has got the whole thing swing all up and down the line, can always pick up one of these things as a motivator2, and do an overt act3 with something ahead of it.
This guy is all right. So, he goes around and cuts a few throats, and he still stays sane. But, one of these persons who is all wiped out at birth – nothing but straight clear theta (?) – and everything is planted from there on, they have one life. They go on, they make facsimiles, and there they are. They have their genetic line facsimiles somewhat, but they are convinced there is no life before this life. This person is starting in with no motivator.
Because of the fact that theta will try to overcome and control the physical universe, and just because of that factor all by itself – this person in his childhood is bound to do some overt acts that come before counter-effort.
This person can live a perfectly beautiful childhood as far as you can find out, and all of a sudden at the age of ten he winds up in a ball, just in awful shape. What did he do? He hit a dog in the nose. Those people have a hard time, because after that they are rather pathetic. The whole track situation makes it (these very early incidents) fairly mild in magnitude. Why? You got along all right because you were so high on the tone scale hardly anything could phase you. When you started to be hit by counter-effort (and on most of your chains this is true) you got a counter-effort as the motivator, and then you do it again. But you also have chains (there isn’t anybody that doesn’t have some, some place) that start out with a lot of overt acts with no counter-effort.
A person who starts out this life all wiped out, is bound to get this DED situation. So, your wide open case is pretty skinny. Boy, will they audit things done to them. But, you won’t get anything they have done to anybody else unless you get them on an E-meter. That is typical of them. You say, “Did you ever do anything to anybody?” “Oh no,” and the needle goes Bang. “Well, take dogs, did you ever do anything to dogs?” “No, I never did anything to dogs.” Meter goes Bang. “Did you ever do anything real bad to dogs?” “Oh no.” Bang. “Did you ever bite a dog?” “No.” Bang. “Did you ever kick a dog?” Bang, and the needle stays on the pin. “Did you ever shoot a dog?” No motion on the meter. So you go back and run these horrible overt acts, like when he pushed the dog out the front door, and actually you will find that it is effective.
This person is really a synthetic person, he has moved aside from all the past. This person gets over here and gets in contact with the past all down the line, and he gets considerably more capable. This doesn’t mean that every case that has sonic and visio recall is a wide open case. You will find that differentiated in Science of Survival.
It is the psycho wide open case, the psycho case that has eidetic recall (and so forth) that has been the real puzzle, and that has been solved. It was solved by finding that they had been wiped out at the beginning or this lifetime, and they are living as sort of a demon circuit. It’s a demon circuit that has sonic, visio, and so on. Somebody did a great job on them, a wonderful job – wiped them out till they are an erased slate. Usually they will appear to be in pretty good physical shape, but they won’t stay that way. They have very little drive, very little endurance, and very weak persistance along certain lines.
Take one more look at that situation. If you know that situation, you can audit one lifetime, you can audit the whole track, and you can make well preclears. That is the combination. You can take apart maybe’s, and there isn’t a maybe anywhere in any case (and this I am very sure of) that cannot be untangled by these techniques. There isn’t an occluded case anywhere, sufficiently occluded to resist these techniques. And if you find a wide open case, run it with these techniques. They are the same thing, you don’t have to audit them differently.
Your occluded case is simply a balled up track, and the wide open case is somebody who has had all of his past shut off from him, and he is living over there somewhere as a demon circuit. You can solve that too, and the way to solve it is to shut them down, right now.
They will say, “My sonic, my visio, they are gone!” You say, “Three Cheers”, (but not to the PC). You have them back on the whole track again; you have them in, off the spur (side track). The second you got that case any better, it shut off-Bang. No sonic, no visio, no tactile, “Where am I? I’m lost, etc.” If you then unravel the maybe’s on the line they will un-occlude nicely, and they will get an improvement in ability and force as you audit them. They will go right on up the line.
