Tape 9: Training: Duplication
16 Feb 01
This is a comparison of two different versions of The Study Tapes, 1982 and 1987 versions, done by listening to an '87 tape, while reading from an '82 transcript, in order to find out what has been cut out of the '87 tapes by RTC.
Right at the beginning of the lecture, several sections have been deleted. The deleted portions are [enclosed in brackets] or noted.
"Thank you very much. [It's not deserved; I've been very mean to several of you in the last day or two; very, very mean, with good results.] Okay. What is this?
It's the 24th of Jan. AD 62 - AD 12, 1962 - in the Year of Our Travail, especially yours.
All right. Now, I have some good news for you. [Going to sit down in this lecture , if you don't mind.
But I have some very, very good news for you], some excellent news for you;..."
"...then you decide to do it right, and then all of a sudden there's tremendous dawning on every hand that there was something here. And that has just happened on this good day of our Dianetics in 1962. This just happened.
[begin deleted section]
Several of you in just the last session you ran discovered that 3D Criss Cross worked like crazy; just discovered it - brand new discovery. Some of you have not made that discovery yet, but many of you - the majority that were having any difficulty with this - all of a sudden it dawned that there was something here and that it did work and that the session ran like a hot bomb, and all became suddenly well.
Now, the old-time student here who has had a great deal of training - I will say this, a great deal of training shows up along these lines - got results with 3D Criss Cross at once. The second it was presented to them they started getting results with 3D Criss Cross, which is quite interesting, see. They looked it over, they said "That's okay", they started listing and everything, and the next thing you know, they were getting results with it.

But those of you who have just come up to the nervous state of newly created IIB did'nt measure up this well..."
The next deletion we encounter, is about 2/3 of the way into side one, with 4 full paragraphs removed. There is a paragraph that begins with: "In essence what is happening is this...", and it ends with: "...We're interested in it from the basis of the communication of a datum, and you get finally so that you can actually take a datum and so on."
[begin deleted section]
"Now let's look at this. This process has been going on for six months or more with some of the older students here; and 3D came out incomplete, not well stated, just brrrr! you know, and that's it. And they did it at once and got results with it at once. In other words, it took them - oh, perhaps 10 minutes to understand it; this is length of time to look at it and read it. I mean it was that fast, you see, and they could put it into action and they could do something with it, and all of a sudden this happened. Well, this doesn't mean that they've become puppetized, it simply means that their ability to duplicate it has now gone over into a second stage - understand - because of course they weren't given any data to duplicate.
Now, you look at the original issue of 3D, or the original mention of 3D that was given to you. Why, the first mentions of it are just scribbles in the case histories, you know, in the case folders, the first mentions of it, and then there's a rather incomplete description of 3D Criss Cross that doesn't amount to a hill of beans, and then there's class rumor.
Well, what I'm showing you is there was practically nothing there to duplicate in the way of wording, and yet these people had actually gotten to this point, where they not only could duplicate the datum that was said to them but they could get what this was and they could understand what this datum was and put it unto use. Now, look at that as a considerable gain, and look at it for just what it is, as a gain, a training gain. And that's quite remarkable.
Now, the comm lag on others who hadn't had that much training has been something on the order of ten days to two weeks, to first duplicate the wording - and complain because there wasn't any wording, don't you see? They were still in a step where they had to have the exact words. And then finally, it took an amplification of a bunch of exact words and a lot of individual notations in case folders for them all of a sudden to do what they were doing and get a result, and the understanding is dawning. See, that's slightly different action."

The tape then resumes with: "Do you see this as a training mechanism? Do you see where this winds up as a training mechanism?..."
This concludes the alterations from the 1982 version to the 1987 version of tape 9.
