On the “Level” or Endless “New OT VII”

Back in 1978 Ron discovered that Clears and OTs couldn’t be audited on New Era Dianetics. As he says in  LRH ED 298 INT issued on 19 September 1978:

New Era Dianetics has already been released and is internationally reported to be working fabulously well producing 80% more gain.

An attempt to run NED on an OT resulted in a phenomenon which caught my attention, and on further investigation brought to light the fact that you cannot run NED, or any Dianetics for that matter, on a Clear (Dianetic or Scientology Clear) or above. Research into this paid off handsomely with a fantastic breakthrough for Clears and OTs. I have now developed an entirely new rundown called “NED for OTs.” This deals with living lightning, the very stuff of life itself. Run exactly correctly by the book it produces remarkable results in the OT band, and has made it possible for me to now release OT VIII. “NED for OTs” is a highly confidential rundown done by a Class IV, OT III auditor, called an Advanced Courses Specialist (ACS), who is specially trained on its rundown and techniques. It is now forbidden to run NED on Clears or above. From Grade VI to OT III is the Non-Interference Zone, during which nothing should be run. Persons in this zone should move on up to OT III so that they may be audited on “NED for OTs.” This rundown will be delivered in AOs and Flag to OT IIIs and above. Clears and OTs who have paid for NED will now receive “NED for OTs” which in the pilot auditing produced results beyond their wildest dreams. While much of it is confidential I can tell you that the first step of “NED for OTs” is designed to raise perceptions, especially theta perception, and as for the rest of the rundown . . . surprise, surprise, surprise!

Originally the rundown was issued as an action audited by an auditor known as an Advanced Course Specialist as mentioned above and was included as part of the Scientology grade Chart as can be seen here in LRH ED 301 INT issued 17 December 1978:

6. OPERATING THETAN I. For the Dianetic Clear who has had his Solo Course, set-up and verification as Clear, this is the first solo auditing step. These OT grades have their own end phenomena but they are confidential.

  • *  7. OT II.
  • *  8. OT III. This is the big step and one has to allow time for it.
  • **  9. OT III EXPANDED.
  • **  10. OT VII. This is an auditing step by a professional OT auditor. It can be

    given in any sequence after OT III and before OT VIII.

†** 11. NED FOR OTs. This is the big news of the OT world. AO auditors were spe- cially trained at Flag and are just now on their way back to AOs to deliver it. I he new Division 4A Flag is an AO now and had its gala opening and its first avalanche of pre-OTs on December 16. There is very wild excitement on the results of NED for OTs as, of course, they’ve never been seen before on this or any other planet. NED for OTs can be given any time after OT III and before OT VIII and is a prerequisite for OT VIII.

  • **  12. OT IV.
  • **  13. OT V.
  • **  14. OT VI.
  • **  15. OT VIII. Although several upper OT grades have been researched, pre-OTs were not ready for them and so they were not released. The needed link which makes it possible is NED for OTs which is its prerequisite. The upper levels above VIII will probably be released from time to time into the future. OT VIII’s release is a real cap for the tech breakthroughs of ‘78.

6. OPERATING THETAN I. For the Dianetic Clear who has had his Solo Course, set-up and verification as Clear, this is the first solo auditing step. These OT grades have their own end phenomena but they are confidential.

  • *  7. OT II.
  • *  8. OT III. This is the big step and one has to allow time for it.
  • **  9. OT III EXPANDED.
  • **  10. OT VII. This is an auditing step by a professional OT auditor. It can be given in any sequence after OT III and before OT VIII.

OT VIII’s release is a real cap for the tech breakthroughs of ‘78.

As one can see. One did OT IIIX prior to NOTs auditing. What was or is OT IIIX? Well according to HCO BULLETIN OF 3 FEBRUARY 1972 he says that:

The Ideal Solo Program is as follows:

  1. Set-up done and all items on the checklist okay.
  2. Good training as a Solo Auditor. Can include the Professional Route of Class VI. Or the Social Counselor Course plus Solo. Or (at this time) the Solo Course only. One Solo Audits as well as he is trained and no better.
  3. R6EW Solo Auditing to End Phenomena and attest.
  4. Clearing Course Solo to CLEAR.
  5. Operating Thetan I to attest.
  6. Operating Thetan II to attest.
  7. Operating Thetan III to attest.
  8. Operating Thetan VII (audited by an auditor level) to attest.
  9. OT III Expanded to attest.
  10. OTIV.
  11. OTV.
  12. OT VI.
  13. OT VIII as released.

After 7 above (OT III) or after 9 above (OT III Expanded) one can run more Dianetics, Expanded Grades, GF40, the famous L10 or do any other case action. One cannot profitably do these actions between Solo R6 and OT III. That’s just the way the bank is.

You will note that “OT VII” is apparently out of sequence. It originally went OT III, OT IV, OT V, OT VI, OT VII. Then it was found that there was a level OT III Expanded. So it can go OT III, OT VII, OT IIIX, OT IV, OT V, OT VI or it can go OT III, OT IV, OT V, OT VI, OT VII, OT IIIX. One gets the most out of it by taking VII after OT III and then OT IV, OT V and OT VI really bite. Many persons were too nervous of OT III to do it well until a drug rundown and OT VII were done. Others thought OT III was endless and OT VII handled that.

The actual materials of these levels are held under tight security at Advanced Orgs because when they are shown to persons who haven’t moved up the grades, they usually cave in. Thus the materials are only available in Advanced Orgs.

OT IIIX or expanded included the following steps:

OT EXPANSION PROGRAM, the sequence of promotion and delivery of OT III and OT III Expanded is (1) OT 111. (2) completion of past auditing cycles in the AO HGC and any required case handling ac- tions, such as C/S 53, GF 40X and any other set-up for OT VII, as determined by the C/S. (3) OT VII. (4) OT III Expanded. The surveyed selling name for the section of auditing between OT III and OT VII is OT Ex- pansion Program. (FO 3112)

Scientology Administrative and Management Dictionary

Basically it was more solo auditing on OT III after OT VII of which the End Phenomena was a Rehabilitation of Intention. Yet as I wrote earlier in this blog somewhere along the line the Church of Scientology’s “Tech Tzar” at the time David Mayo would revise the Grade Chart to exclude all the original levels above OT III and replace them with “New” OT Levels such as the OT Drug Rundown released in 1980 which became “New OT IV” which was followed by Audited NOTs delivered by a Advanced Course Specialist either at an Advanced Org or at Flag renamed “New OT V”  then “New OT VI” became a retread of the Solo Course followed by an OK to audit “New OT VII” FKA “Solo NOTs” AKA “the level” which in many cases became endless.

The reason why can be seen if one reads the above technical reference which again says:

One gets the most out of it by taking VII after OT III and then OT IV, OT V and OT VI really bite. Many persons were too nervous of OT III to do it well until a drug rundown and OT VII were done. Others thought OT III was endless and OT VII handled that.

Now without getting into what is considered “Confidential Data”. One can see that if a Pre OT needed not just a Drug Rundown but the step known as OT VII to fully get through OT III then how would anyone expect to get through the level known as NOTs without it?

If OT III seemed “endless”. It is nothing compared to what “New OT VII” had become for most  cases on “the level”. Many who have been on NOTs when it first released in 1978 which is now almost four decades!

Not only is there that missing step but there is another factor which may be hanging up a lot of Pre OTs on the levels and that is a lack of training:

HCO BULLETIN OF 27 DECEMBER 1982

TRAINING AND OT

On Solo levels you deserve the best auditor you can get: You.

Auditor training is highly recommended whether you plan to audit professionally or not. “Getting trained,” as a Solo auditor, does not simply mean to do the Solo courses. Training up to the level of a Class IV/NED Auditor who knows his business is the most positive assurance there is that you will make it to OT.

It’s all right for these guys in lower grades to be pcs—that’s fine. But there comes a point as you move up the Grade Chart when your lack of auditing skill starts hitting you in the teeth and you won’t make it to OT at all. You’re walking straight into the tiger’s lair on New OT VII and you’d better be good!

Recently, some Solo NOTs auditors reported that they were just giving themselves a session a week “to keep their ruds in.” What was actually occurring was that they were trying to make it to OT without being sufficiently trained, and giving as an excuse that, well, they’re just keeping their ruds in. If those Solo NOTs auditors knew what was ahead of them up the line, they sure would not be monkeying with that.

The plain truth of it is, if anybody is really going to make it to OT he has to know how to audit. That’s the long and short of it.

You wouldn’t put yourself and your case in the hands of an untrained or poorly trained auditor, would you?

You owe yourself the best auditor in the world on Solo, and that is you. So get trained.

L. RON HUBBARD Founder

 

 

The fact is that many of those currently on “the level” have never done any training other  than the Solo Auditors Course.

So in many cases. Not only is there the missing step, original OT VII but lack of training as well.

Interesting that since labeling David Mayo “ a Squirrel ” in the early eighties that his successor Ray Mithoff ,who like the original OT Levels has mysteriously vanished, never made effort to correct this major error that Mayo perpetrated.

Sure we can blame Ron but the fact is the Old Man as he says in RJ 38 (PartB) turned over the control of the Church of Scientology over to the new Sea Org Junta.
