Happiness Rundown - Cancellation of Original

 
I wrote this article "Happiness Rundown - Cancellation of Original" on 25 September 2013. Looking back I would say I was rather shaken about what I found and reported here, mainly because I had lived in innocence of the fact that the course which I which I took and interned on (very thoroughly) had been cancelled (I was thrown out of Scientology about a year after finishing the internship). It was not until Christmas 2015 that I took time off to thoroughly investigate it. Being a bachelor with no children and not by any means a Christian I found myself free of all other commitments and tucked into it.

I have two Internet "outlets", this, Antology.info, which is really only my personal views plus my personal experiences, and Scientolipedia [http://scientolipedia.org/info/Main_Page] which I discovered after I created this site and which is a cooperative thing, and should be more objective. So the results of my investigations last Christmas and later contacts with other people have been put on Scientolipedia. Therefore the following is a kind of museum artefact.

So to see the greatly extended treatise on the Two Happiness Rundowns go to the following link:
http://scientolipedia.org/info/Two_Happiness_Rundowns

I also got an experienced Happiness Rundown auditor and C/S, Leo Swart, to write an introduction which is at:
http://scientolipedia.org/info/Two_Happiness_Rundowns_%E2%80%93_Introduction

The main site, Two Happiness Rundowns, being on Scientolipedia, is open to anybody to add to or modify, and if you want to be notified when changes are made you should make a login to Scientolipedia (where you invent a login name, I am perhaps ultraconservative and prefer people to use their own names, my login name there is AntPhillips). When you make a login you will give them an Internet email address and you can then go to any page on Scientolipedia and put it on what is called your watchlist (by clicking on a star on the third line down when you are logged in) and after that you will be sent an email when any change is made to that page. On that email you will get a link to an area showing you what changes have been made.

Scientolipedia is a Good Thing and I would encourage people to participate in it either adding data or working on the more "nerdy" maintenance side (or of course both, or even doing minor proofreading corrections). And if you have any questions, suggestions or want to pass the time of day do not forget that my email address is ant.phillips@post8.tele.dk  . (The address is also at the "Contact Ant" menu point on the left.)

That original course seems to have vanished from Scientology records. That is a relatively new trend, for Ron had the principle that all that he wrote (or authorised) should remain visible so that there was a good track of the research of Scientology. This principle was used in the first edition of the Red Volumes (full name, The Technical Bulletins of Dianetics and Scientology), Bulletins which had later been revised or cancelled were printed in date order, but marked clearly on the top right hand corner that they had been cancelled or revised with a reference to the revising Bulletin's date.

However The first edition of the Red Volumes ended in 1979, whereas the first Happiness Rundown Bulletin in my possession (part of the course pack I was issued with) is 24th November 1980. This does not appear in my copy of the Red Volumes for 1980. Number 2 in the Happiness Rundown Series (14thFebruary 1981) is similarly missing, and I have not checked further.

Similarly missing is the Bulletin canceling the Happiness Rundown Bulletins. It was dated 15 Jan 1984 and I got a copy by private means and include it at the end of this.

Staff "blowing"

I think it was about a year ago that I first heard about this cancellation of the first version of the Happiness Rundown. The Happiness Rundown, as I knew it covers the eight dynamics, begins with dynamic one (self) and is based on the booklet The Way to Happiness. So at the beginning there are seven first dynamic precepts, like "Eat properly" and "Get rest". As I knew it, it was lightly done, looking for misunderstoods, transgressions, going into a valence, etc., and went quite fast.

Why the cancellation of the original version came to my attention was because I was told that it was canceled because people were "blowing" from staff posts after having done it. "Blowing " is a term used when a person leaves a Scientology staff post outside the terms of his contract. Among the people I audited on internship were a number of junior Guardian Office staff, and I did notice that some were surprised, for example, that Ron had said "clean your teeth" or "get rest" (after each precept there is a short explanation that the preclear reads).

The person I heard this from regarded the new and old Happiness Rundown, very poorly, saying they were nothing other than Security Checks. That was certainly not how I experienced the Happiness Rundown I was trained in.

A showed this article to Leo Swart who was HRD auditor and C/S in South Africa, and he remarked:

Yes, guys did tend to blow after receiving the HRD - in particular they would blow the Sea Org. They would recognise clearly on the R/D that there was no way they could keep the precept to eat proper food and take care of the body while at the same time they were on beans and rice. Nor could they get proper rest when they had to work all night to get the stats up. etc etc.  So they would realise that the Sea Org was inherently antipathetic to the requirements of the HRD and so they blew.
The HRD was a fantastic rundown in its original form, highly effective.

HAPPINESS RUNDOWN ADDITIVES


In a review of the Happiness Rundown issues I have found that the tech of the HRD, as originally developed and written by me in late 1980, had been covertly sabo­taged. Numerous instances of suppressive technical alter-is have been found in the issues of the 1981 HRD Series. These writings were not seen by myself and were falsely and illegally issued over my name.

They are, every one of them, CANCELLED:

–––––

A complete new HRD Series of HCOBs has been written and issued.

In this Bulletin are listed the major points of false data, technical perversion and alter-is that have been cancelled and deleted in restoring the HRD to standard tech. This information is published to inform auditors and C/Ses who were trained on the earlier, now-cancelled HRD issues of the false data that had been insidiously woven into them.

It is also of use to persons FESing the case folders of pcs audited on the HRD, prior to any needed clean up of their HRD auditing.


AUDITORS DON’T HAVE CASES

Policy is and always has been that auditors don’t have cases. Yet it was spread about in issues that a student training on the HRD Auditor’s Course MUST be audited on the RD, lest he be too restimulated to audit. It was even stated that a Pre-OT who was solo’ing on Solo NOTS could not be allowed to trainpart time as an HRD auditor, because he couldn’t immediately receive the HRD (being in the middle of a major action).

This is purest nonsense.

The simplicity of the matter is: Auditors do not have cases. There is just no such thing as "my case is restimulated and therefore I cannot audit others.” (Ref: Tape 6401C24, TRAINING AND DUPLICATION)

The HAPPINESS RUNDOWN AUDITOR COURSE, HCO PL 22 Jan 84 Issue I, gives the correct auditing requirements for certification. And they are requirements that the student prove his ability to audit standardly with the materials that he has learned. His case as a pc or PreOT has no part in it.


CLEAR

A statement made in one of the former HRD issues that some people were Cleared with HRD auditing was and is false. And the originator of this statement knew full well that it was untrue.

While some very spectacular releases have been attained as a result of auditing on the HRD, people are not Cleared with this rundown. Dianetics auditing on the standard processes of New Era Dianetics makes Clears, as does auditing on the materials of the Clearing Course. (Ref: HCOB 14 Dec 81, THE STATE OF CLEAR.)


ETHICS

The fact of being mid-HRD as a PC does not in any way justify or excuse out-ethics behaviour. However, the idea that someone’s out-ethics actions could or should be overlooked because he was on the HRD or that the RD would automatically take care of such was inserted in earlier issues, by a "C/S” no longer around. (Ref: HCOB 30 Oct 81 CANCELLED 7 Nov 82, C/S Series 114 "C/Sing For The Pc” CANCELLED, KSW Series 28 CANCELLED.)

The correct data on the relation between auditing and ethics is in HCOB 13 Oct 82, C/S Series 116, ETHICS AND THE C/S, and its referenced issues. However, the HRD is an auditing rundown, and it IStech — and tech will not go in when ethics is out.


READING QUESTIONS

One does not run unreading auditing questions or items. One of the most blatantly destructive points of technical alter-is in the 1981 HRD materials was the idea that one should run every single question of the HRD procedure on every pc doing the RD, even if it were an unreading auditing question. This datum was accompanied with various "reasons” why it was so. But there were quite a number of auditors who wondered about it, since it is contrary to tech fundamentals. They were right of course.

Knocking metering out of use in the rundown was in actual fact an attempt to alter the basic tech of the HRD so as to prevent discovery of withholds on the part of the issuer. (Ref: HCO PL 19 Jan 79, A NEW TYPE OF CRIME)

The key rule to follow is: EVERY AUDITING QUESTION IN THE HAPPI­NESS RUNDOWN PROCEDURE IS CHECKED FOR READ BEFORE IT IS RUN, AND IF NOT READING IT IS NOT RUN AT THAT TIME. (REF: HCOB 23 JUN 80RA, CHECKING QUESTIONS ON GRADES PROCESSES)

The full correct procedure for handling the steps of the HRD procedure is outlined in HCOB 18 Jan 84, HRD Series 3,

HOW TO AUDIT THE HRD and HCOB 19 Jan 84, HRD Series 4, HAPPINESS RUNDOWN COMMAND SHEETS.


ALTER-ISED AND ADDITIVE COMMANDS

A series of squirrel commands was invented and added to those I originally out­lined for the HRD. These appeared in the earlier (now-cancelled) Happiness Rundown Command Sheets as questions 11 through 20 and were actually a re-run of questions already run on the pc.

Another invented step added to the original HRD procedure was step "7a” which asked "Have you thought of something you didn’t tell me?”. In addition to the fact that asking for missed withholds after a certain step on every single precept was an unneces­sary additive to the HRD procedure, it also came under the false "rule” about not checking HRD questions for reads. This was no doubt very perplexing to the auditors and C/Ses who tried to wrap their wits around it. (See the section above on READING QUESTIONS.)

Asking for "something you didn’t tell me” is not one of the 1 through 10 steps of the HRD procedure as such, and it does not appear in the new command sheets. This however does NOT give the HRD auditor any license to miss withholds.

If any missed withhold symptom is present in the session THE AUDITOR MUST HANDLE IT BY PULLING THE MISSED WITHHOLD AND MUSTUSE HIS ME­TER AND THE TOOLS OF LEVEL II TECHNOLOGY IN DOING SO. (Ref: HCOB 23 Aug 71, C/S Series 1, AUDITOR’S RIGHTS, and HCOB 3 May 62, ARC BREAKS — MISSED WITHHOLDS)

A number of the simple basic commands I originally laid out for the RD were al­ter-ised and made complex and unclear. The False Data Stripping questions (5a through 5e) which are part of the basic HRD steps were incorrectly worded. On the questions designed to pick up others’ transgressions and the pc’s own transgressions against the precept (steps 6 and 7), the instructions given to the auditor were vague, and thus open to interpretation as to just how these steps were to be handled.

The correct commands are given in HCOB 19 Jan 84, HRD Series 4, HAPPI­NESS RUNDOWN COMMAND SHEETS.

The original simplicity and power of this rundown has been restored in the new HCOBs of the HRD Series.


END PHENOMENA

An additive was entered into my statement of the EP of the HRD. This was that the pc must "recover his basic personality”. While this phenomenon has occurred in many cases on various auditing levels and RDs, it is not necessary that a pc achieve it to be considered complete on the HRD. This phenomenon is not the EP of the HRD.

The EP of the HRD is as stated in HCOB 18 Jan 84, HRD Series 3, HOW TO AUDIT THE HRD.


SET UP

Another destructive false datum contained in these issues was that one need pay little if any heed to what sort of case shape the pc was in before starting him on the HRD. HRD Series 2 (before its recent rewriting) stated: "The rule regarding set up is: IF YOU CAN FLY THE PC’S RUDIMENTS, HE’S SET UP FOR THE HRD.”

The fact is that one sets up a pc for the HRD just as he would for any major ac­tion.

There are numerous tools at a C/S’s disposal for setting up a case and "fly all ruds” is only one of them. One cannot, for example, repair a pc with out lists by asking for an ARC Break! (Ref: HCOB 10 Jun 71 Issue I, C/S Series 44R, C/S RULES — PROGRAMMING FROM PREPARED LISTS and HCOB 15 Sep 71, C/S Series 60, THE WORST TANGLE)

The C/S and auditor do thorough studies of the case, get any needed repair of past auditing done, get the pc’s ruds in and get whatever other standard set up actions are required on the case done. This is well covered in the C/S Series HCOBs.


TWO-WAY COMM

The idea was put forward that two way comm was supposed to be done roboti­cally. This is patently false and contrary to basic tech.

The correct data on how to do 2WC is given in my HCOBs and tapes on the sub­ject, including HCOB 21 Apr 70, 2 WAY COMM C/SES, HCOB 3 Jul 70, C/SING 2 WAY COMM and HCOB 17 Mar 74, TWC CHECKSHEETS — TWC, USING WRONG QUESTIONS.


C/S EVALUATION

A squirrel method for handling a bogged case was conjured up and put in one of the HCOBs, whereby the C/S wrote out evaluations of that pc’s case, and ordered the auditor to show the pc the C/S’s note and talk with him about it. This is not covered ANYWHERE in the tech of Scn auditing or C/Sing and is NOT to be done. (Fortunately for this planet, that "C/S” is no longer on the lines at all.)

The use of prepared lists and other standard repair actions and correct methods of getting data from a pc are covered in the C/S Series, particularly C/S Series 62, HCOB 27 Sep 71, KNOW BEFORE YOU GO.


OWN IDENTITY

Another invented "handling” included in the issue on C/Sing the HRD was the "Own Identity Handling”. This involved the auditor switching to another series of commands on a pc who had run into a "special type of valence — the pc’s own identity” in doing the valence separation steps. These steps were and are additives to the HRD. They are flagrantly out tech.

If the pc originates that a particular identity was "his own identity”, the valence handling steps are simply continued as usual, until a valence separation occurs. To do otherwise is a gross Q&A with a pc origination and a violation of the integrity of the rundown. (Ref: HCOB 28 Sep 82, C/S Series 115, MIXING RUNDOWNS AND RE­PAIRS and HCOB 20 Apr 80, Q & A, THE REAL DEFINITION.)

It can also occur that a pc comes up with the item "me” in answer to question 8a of the HRD procedure ("Is there any specific person in your past who really trans­gressed against the precept, _________ ?”). The correct handling of this occurrence was flatly omitted from the earlier HRD issues. The handling now appears in HCOB 18 Jan 84, HRD Series 3, HOW TO AUDIT THE HRD.

The issues giving the tech on the valence separation steps of the rundown are HCOB 17 Jan 84, HRD Series 2, HAPPINESS RUNDOWN BASICS, HCOB 19 Jan 84, HRD Series 4, HAPPINESS RUNDOWN COMMAND SHEETS and HCOB 18 Jan 84, HRD Series 3, HOW TO AUDIT THE HRD.


CRAMMING

An off-beat "corrective action” was dreamed up that consisted of mixing cram­ming procedure with the HRD auditing steps, and this was issued as HCOB 9 Oct 81, HRD CRAMMING. This issue was never seen or approved by me and is C-A-N-C-E-L-L-E-D.

Cramming is cramming.

The HRD is the HRD.

Mixing the two together was serious out tech. (Ref: C/S Series 115, MIXING RUNDOWNS AND REPAIRS.)

A way to repair a person who has been messed up by this squirrel "HRD cram­ming” is given in HCOB 16 Jan 84, Issue II, Cramming Series 25, REPAIR OF PAST CRAMMING.


USE OF OCA TESTS

An HRD case histories issue (now cancelled) contained data to the effect that giving the pc OCA tests was a part of the rundown itself, and implied that the C/Sing of the HRD session to session was supposed to be based on these OCA results. While this is true for certain other auditing RDs, it is not part of standard HRD procedure, and this incorrect issue was yet another example of mixing rundowns (Ref: HCOB 28 Sep 82 C/S Series 115, MIXING RUNDOWNS AND REPAIRS).

The HRD is C/Sed and audited to its EP exactly and only as per the rewritten HRD HCOBs.

It is quite OK to order an OCA done after a pc completes the HRD. OCA tests are administered at periodic points in a pc’s auditing and when ordered by the C/S, in ac­cordance with the basic issues on testing. (Ref: HCOB 19 Dec 71, C/S Series 71, D OF P OPERATES BY OCAs, HCOB 24 Feb 72, C/S Series 71A, WORD CLEARING OCAs and HCOB 17 Jul 71R, C/S Series 51R, OUT OF VALENCE)


HRD AND NOTS PRE-OTs

The HCOB of 15 Mar 81, entitled HAPPINESS RUNDOWN AND NOTS PRE-OTS (now CANCELLED and replaced by HCOB 21 Jan 84 Issue III, HRD Series 7, same title) permitted interjecting the HRD into the middle of Audited NOTS (New OT V) and Solo NOTS (New OT VII) programs — and even recommended doing so. This is in direct conflict with basic tech as given in HCOB 26 May 71R, C/S Series 38R, TRS COURSE AND AUDITING, MIXING MAJOR ACTIONS and HCOB 9 Jun 71 II, C/S Series 42, C/S RULES and other HCOBs.

The HRD is not to be run on someone incomplete on New OT V or New OT VII, or incomplete on anymajor action. It is out tech to do so.

The issue also stated that the HRD could be audited on New OT V or VII PreOTs by an auditor who was not fully trained and certified to audit NOTS techniques (an Advanced Courses Specialist, New Class IX). This is batty. Putting such a "rule” into practice would result in an auditor having to end the session to call in an ACS to handle the pc any time NOTS techniques were required — for example, any time the Pre-OT needed his ruds flown! This could lead to frequent changes of auditor, an Auditor’s Code break. (Further, an auditor not specifically trained in the tech of Audited NOTS would not have the technical know-how to accurately determine whenNOTS tech­niqueswereneeded on the case.) In other words, this additive really snarled up the lines.

The full and correct data on when New OT Vs and New OT VIIs may be audited on the Happiness Rundown, and by whom, is described in HCOB 21 Jan 84, Issue III, HRD Series 7, HAPPINESS RUNDOWN AND NOTS PRE OTS.


HRD MATERIALS AND PC FOLDERS

For reasons best known to the person who issued the orders, the HRD HCOBs in some orgs were labelled "confidential” and separate pc folders were made for pcs on the HRD — so that the pc not only had a regular pc folder, but additionally had another folder marked "HRD folder”.

This is false data. There were never any instructions from me that these materials were to be marked "confidential” or that a special pc folder was to be made.

The only separate series of folders that a case would have is the chronological se­ries of Solo folders, containing the PreOT’s auditing sessions done on the Solo levels. (Ref: HCOB 15 Mar 70, DOUBLE FOLDER DANGER.)


COMPLEXITY

In addition to the original materials of the Happiness Rundown having been alter-ised, and another’s squirrel inventions added to the issues, there is another important point here: What was in essence a very SIMPLE rundown was made highly COM­PLEX.

This has now been handled with the restoration of the HRD materials to their original simplicity.


SUMMARY

It should be noted that despite the alter-is and additives that were entered into the rundown, the power and accuracy of the original HRD tech has proven itself in the tremendous results achieved on persons who have received it. And, it is a very simple matter to clean up any charge that may have been bypassed in earlier HRD auditing.

You see, those who would attempt to sabotage the tech never really succeed. They just think they do.

With the HRD streamlined up to its original simple form, it could be expected that the wins and successes from pcs receiving it (and the auditors and C/Ses delivering it) will be rolling in, in even greater avalanches. And that I look forward to!

Ant note: As stated above, this Bulletin, and the Bulletins it cancels are not to be found in the new Red Volumes (I have only checked the first two, I am a lazy fellow). Therefore modern "Church" auditors do not see it, and if they did get hold of it, they could not check the truth of the many statements made in the above Bulletin. I have a suspicion that I ought to compare the original Bulletins I have with the new ones - might give an interesting result - but it will have to wait.

Added 14th August: The written materials concerning the two Happiness Rundown Courses are at:
