Description: Hubbard discusses demonology and exorcism.
You know, he’s got this pressure around his face, and so forth. 1 And boy, you could explain this to him like mad. You would explain it to him on a basis of demonology.
And you could make it so exciting and so significant, give the history of demons, their separate and various names, how they are all bossed by separate and particular archangels or arch devils, and how this has affected him in various ways and how to use them in various ways. And if you were convincing enough, he would lose that mass.2, 3
This is what’s known as demon exorcism. If you pray hard enough, if you explain hard enough, if you yell hard enough or beat a tom-tom hard enough, you’ll finally bang enough significance into this mass so he doesn’t have to pull it up to his chest to look at it.
But of course he has to be in an hypnotic state to have this done to him, doesn’t he? So this actually compounds the felony and that’s why evaluation is bad. As I say, you could actually make somebody get rid of one of these masses, simply by putting enough significance into it for him. That’s hypnotism. That’s why people are willing to be hypnotized. They’ve got to have enough significance to explain why they’re going through all this strain. They’re standing in one place, they are working hard, there’s got to be a reason why all the way along the line. They don’t have a reason why.

- Scientologists at OT 3 locate clusters of body thetans by pressure areas in, on and around their bodies. Pressure area = cluster. ↩
- “lose that mass.” This NOTs issue provides more “tech” on “masses” and “solidities” and the seriously weird worldview indoctrinated into Scientologists at OT V and above.

THE “SOLIDITY” OF THE BODY
BTs think they’re pinned to the body, when they’re pinned into other BTs, they think they’re interiorized into the body, when they’re pinned into BTs. How could a being get stuck to a body? There’s some kind of central core in the body that the being mistakes for the body. The central core sticks to the body and the thetan sticks to it. Some BTs think they are a body. There are clusters that think they’re a body and other BTs stick to the cluster and wind up thinking they’re a body. They would have to be stuck by a postulate: “I am a body”, or “I am a head”, or “I am the brain”, etc.
Someone on OT III can think he’s complete on OT III because he thinks the solidity he perceives as the body is the body. It is a mistaken apparency of solidity of the body. This apparent solidity of the body is composed of BTs and clusters and may be the same size and shape as the body when first contacted.
So someone on OT III perceives this and assumes it’s the body and thinks he’s done on OT III. This “solidity” he perceives as the body is composed of BTs and clusters. The body becomes transparent to an OT to the degree he clears this up. It is a “body” built of thetans – you have to learn you’re not looking at the body, but a false body composed of BTs and clusters. A Pre-OT on “NED for OTs” will become aware of this during the RD (it is not drawn to his attention by the auditor). It’s not the solidity of the body but the solidity of BTs and clusters formed as a body.
The body acts as a magnifier of perceptions – it collects and magnifies perceptions – some thetans think they can’t perceive well exterior, as the actual body and objects and walls look pretty flimsy and transparent to an OT.
The guy gets fooled – he thinks he’s looking at this body and he’s not. He’s looking at a solid mass of BTs and clusters. The actual body looks transparent to an OT. Unless you get the guy’s perception up, he won’t be able to perceive this and if he can’t perceive them, he won’t be able to run them. The preliminary step of “NED for OTs” is to get the Pre-OT’s perception up enough so it can be run. This false “body” composed of BTs and clusters is blown off piece by piece on the RD.

- It is clear to me that Hubbard’s BT-blowing technology requires, as he said in 1954, that the subjects (us Scientologists) had to be in an hypnotic state to have this done to us. ↩
