Pete, your reply was excellent. However at one point you wrote:

Observe and file the information away as at the most interesting(you were watching so it was interesting to you) make judgements like: some people cheat, some referees get bribed or are blind or have taken sides etc.

- But I dont believe the word "at" should be between "as" and "the"...
- And grammatically I'm not able to follow what you wrote when you said: "make judgements like".. should there have been a period after the phrase "most interesting" and a new sentence started with "Make"?

As you can see in this small video clip:

A soccer player from Sweden was pushed right as he was going to score. The referee refused to penalize the German player you committed the obvious foul.

When I see things like this, I have a number of reactions:
- I want to get revenge on the cheating referee
- I want to get revenge on the fouling player
- I want to quit watching World Cup soccer because it appears to be rigged (for instance, they did not publicize the blood tests of the Russian athletes. That is in addition to this clear case of favoritism in refereeing and other things.)

How would one find peace and make it be OK that cheating like this does not go punished?

An auditor is one who asks questions and listens, with the intent
of helping a pc clear some area of charge in his life.

What if the auditor erupts in laughter at the incident the pre-clear is relating? Then what?
Did you ever get an answer to your question?  I used to want to be an auditor, and now I'm very happy just being a welcome "Prresence" while the person on the other end does the RI and Timebreaking.  So much less effort  :)

No, I never got a reply to my question.

This video is very compelling:

it shows that you really just have a set of conditioned programs and can switch one set for the other.

What a suprise to see this as a TEDx talk - a step forward for mankind :-)

Very few people can handle the intimacies of another terminal without getting triggered. Until you have been through the Scientology bullbaiting exercise (or communication course) and shown yourself immune to the words of others, you will only get scarred when someone unloads on you.

I woke up with a splitting headache the day after someone yelled "**** you, **** you **** you!" over and over to me because he didnt like my opinion.

And the instruction in Radical Honesty is horrible. Nothing is written down or well-planned and they start the practice without giving the theory. It leads to a room full of confused people who fail the exercises.

Okay, I get it: often bringing up front a traumatic incident includes rapid eye movement and nervous ticks, such as hand or finger twitching, so I can see that consciously doing those things while timebreaking would be additionally  therapeutic.

Yes, a key aspect of this timebreaking is that it involved you using left to right eye movement so that the incident is processed by BOTH brain hemispheres. Trauma apparently is a memory that has not been processed by both hemispheres.

Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing

Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) is a form of psychotherapy developed by Francine Shapiro which uses eye movements or other forms of bilateral stimulation to assist trauma victims in processing distressing memories and beliefs. It is commonly used for the treatment of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).[1][2] The theory behind the treatment assumes that when a traumatic or distressing experience occurs, it may overwhelm normal coping mechanisms, with the memory and associated stimuli being inadequately processed and stored in an isolated memory network.[1]

The therapy includes having the patient recall distressing images while receiving one of several types of bilateral sensory input, such as side-to-side eye movements or hand tapping.[3] EMDR is most commonly used to treat adults with PTSD, but it is also used to treat trauma and PTSD in children and adolescents.

The following topic is not exactly a process, but I feel that it is quite important. For over 40 years on this earth, I have been led to believe this earth is a spinning globe and I never questioned it. After seeing repeated mentionings of the concept of flat earth, I began to review material and became more and more convinced of it.

But it wasnt until I watched the precise scientific experiments by these researchers that I became firmly convinced that the concept of a spherical spinning earth was faulty: - "Convex Earth - The Documentary"

a person who thinks he is a bird and steps off the 3rd story ledge while flapping his arms will crash into the ground.  He has lost his sanity or lost his reason and is doing what is unreasonable or not in agreement with the law of gravity.

The man in your example operates in 3 states: waking, dreaming and deep sleep. In the waking state, he will crash into the ground. However in the dream state he can (as I have) fly all over the place with no problem. So I suppose the dream state is where actuality is the law while in the waking state reality is the law.

I'm enjoying this conversation. I'm not actively doing the exercises these days. I did them for a bit and boy the past will try to take your attention out of the present and you really could be a basket case if you dont timebreak those implants that come storming back. But I really appreciate the discussion we are having.

What if the auditor erupts in laughter at the incident the pre-clear is relating? Then what?

Whenever I attempt this process or something similar but with more direction (i.e., "What am I") mind-stuff keeps coming up and out.   There is discharge accompanying this approach or else it would not be worth doing.

"What am I" is the question asked in Kwan Um Zen.
Focusing on "I am" cuts all thought at the root because behind every thought is the thought "I am this" or "I am that"

I believe as Dennis says that the reason these sorts of processes come to a grinding halt is lack of some sort of havingness process.

I suppose when you are a Buddhist and trying to drop all attachment, you dont want any havingness :)
If this came to a halt or got boring, you could go on to Koan practice.

You will notice that Niz probably got his havingness from smoking -- just a guess.

I dont know what you mean by "havingness process" and "getting havingness". Can you give some examples?

This is a very popular technique right now and you can see that the developer had some exposure to Dianetics at some point:

Level one TROM / Re: Perceptive RI for One Hour?

All physical objects are in the present moment so grabbing them is the mechanical way of putting your attention on the present moment.

Thank you for your reply Pete as well as your work to preserve and update this material. As you know, in study tech, anytime you dont understand something, you research it until it is clear. It seems like a small point, but the first thing I would like to bring up is this sentence you wrote:

The balance of the processes in TROM are for finding emotionally charged incidents in the past that pull your attention out of the present and by repeatedly looking at them reduce their charge so you can put your attention on the present moment in time.

My question is about the word "balance". Don't you mean "intent"?

Next you state:
All physical objects are in the present moment so grabbing them is the mechanical way of putting your attention on the present moment.

My first question about this is: regarding the physical objects in the present moment, say, in this hotel room where I am typing this. Are all of these objects here and created by something else? Or did "I" create everything that I currently perceiving with my 5 senses?

My next question is: all TROM exercises are run until there is no more change in awareness. But I cant imagine any change in awareness from doing this exercise or any change in awareness after doing it for 1 hour.

My final question: Do you have an expectation of what this exercise might produce? Would you oversee some sessions of this for pay? I'm not committing to engaging your services, but I am interested.

Excellent picture.

General Discussion / Some importances are "negative"
« on: November 19, 2017, 06:03:02 am »
I just realized that certain things matter quite a bit to me but in a negative way. For instance, I do not like the cold. I do not like crowded cities. I do not like pollution. Now, if I were doing RI, the only importances I would create would be the opposite of those --- I would create warm weather, wide open spaces with clean air.

The reason this is important is that I am faced with a crucial life decision. And I realized that the way to make the decision is to figure out what maximizes what is important to me while minimizing the things that are important in a negative way.

As Life would have it, it seems that things are perfectly balanced between what I really like and what I really hate --- if I deal with the cold, crowded pollute spaces, then I can get a job with a lot of money. I dont deal with the cold, crowded, polluted spaces, then I am faced with a much harder path to getting a lot of money.
