NEW THEORY of the NEW GRADE CHART
Observation: In 1981 New Era Dianetics was placed after Grade IV on the Classification and Gradation Chart. This is not in alignment with earlier LRH data.
Tech Application: Looking earlier in time for more basic data and comparing and evaluating bulletins against earlier bulletins and basics. (consistency)
Data: It has even become a matter of court record that LRH’s signature under an issue does not guarantee that LRH has written or even seen it.
The following (in italics) are quotes from bulletins and issues from 1950 – 1970 and speak mainly for themselves:
“… so long as the body remains thoroughly degraded, the task of rehabilitating the spirit connected with it is difficult at best.”
HCOB 12 JUNE 1970 PROGRAMMING OF CASES
“Give pc Scn Triples then do his Dianetics then fix up his hidden standard,” would be a series of crazy non-sequitur C/Ses. Nothing is connected to or proceeds from anything. That would be a dispersed program for sure.”
“…And a PC who is unflat on Dianetics will have out lower grades. Jumping processes on the Class Chart set the pc up to fall on his head later.”
HCOB 22 APRIL 1969 DIANETICS vs SCIENTOLOGY
“Dianetics is Dianetics and Scientology is Scientology. They are separate subjects. They have in common certain tools like the E-Meter, TRs and auditor presence. But there it ends. Dianetics addresses the body. Scientology addresses the thetan.”
HCO BULLETIN OF 15 JUNE 1970 C/S Series 5 REPAIR EXAMPLE
DIANETICS Pcs audited only on Dianetics in missions and centers will make some astonishing physical and even mental improvements. The larger percentage will do so.
NEW GRADE CHART BULLETINS:
HCOB 12 Dec 81 , THEORY OF THE NEW GRADE CHART
“…But wait, Scientology ARC Straight Wire and Grades were developed as an undercut to Dianetics. “
ARC Straightwire yes, but not grades=INCORRECTLY INCLUDED, CONTRARY DATA
HCOB 12 NOVEMBER 1981 GRADE CHART STREAMLINED FOR LOWER GRADES
“…So this has now been made real on the New Grade Chart. Lower Scientology Grades have been placed below NED….”
Is history repeating itself?
HCOB 30 JUNE 1970R C/S Series 13R VIII ACTIONS
“Amazingly, the reissue of Dianetics as Standard Dianetics caused about a dozen people (even in high places unfortunately) to at once assume that Dianetics wiped out any need for Power, Scientology Clearing or anything else! Even an unauthorized Policy Letter (not signed by me) and an HCO B (also not signed by me) gave this impression.”
Conclusion: All data point towards the correct grade chart sequence being Dianetics then Grades. This was the case on all Grade Charts issued prior to 1981. In current practice (2007) we have been using Dianetics effectively on the majority of cases starting in auditing as the first action. There are only a few exceptions (heavy out ruds, resistive cases) where a life repair or other action was needed.
