FROM CLEAR TO ETERNITY
As I continue to research, I never cease to be amazed at the amount of gain potentially available to an individual.
There are six rough divisions of case gain.
1. From raw public to a realization Scientology works and should be continued.
2. The realization that, through his auditing, one will not get any worse – an arrested decline.
3. The whole band of gains we call the lower Grades. The very least of these gains (and there are many by pc testimony), is stated to exceed by far any advance in personal gain ever before achieved in any former practice known. (A simple flying of ruds can get more gain than ten years of psychoanalysis!)
4. The band that achieves in a final burst of glory and freedom, the state of Clear.
5. The pre-OT levels, leading to personal spiritual freedom. These carry up through all NOTs, audited and Solo. What is amazing here is that each one of these levels, ac-cording to rave reports, has, each one, its own spectacular level of gain.
6. The actual OT levels beginning now with New OT VIII and going on up.
According to the spiritual research records and pre-OT and OT reports, the AMOUNT of gain available to one person is never really conceived, in an aberrated state, to potentially exist above him.
It is a never-ending source of wonder to people, going truly on this route, that there could be such QUANTITY of gain available to one being.
Thus in an aberrated state, the person is not likely to turn his eyes up very high and still keep a reality on it.
In the age of speed, people may conceive it all should happen in a minute. Or maybe a minute and a half. Or as the result of a needle jab which will make them free forever.
Alas this universe isn’t built that way.
This universe is based on QUANTITY. There’s an awful lot of it.
The number of electrons in an atom, the number of atoms in a molecule, the number of molecules in a drop of water is awesome arithmetic.
The number of planets in systems, the number of suns in a galaxy, the number of galax-ies add up to mind-boggling figures.
TIME, on this very short-lifed and hectic planet, is hardly conceived of at all. Just re-cently geologists concluded that Man might have been here for a million years. HAH! Little do they know!
The age of this and other universes is very, very long. It is not eternity but almost.
So, without getting into questions as to how long you’ve been around (the brain theory boys might object since they are TERRIFIED of spirits) let’s ask this question:
If a being had half an eternity to louse himself up, how loused up could he get?
Right. Go to the head of the class. Plenty!
And you now can get an inkling of how much spiritual gain might be available. And this could explain why, at each one of the six levels, there are so many new gains according to tes-timonies collected.
All right. Got that? Good.
We now come to the next question, since one and all are being very bright this morning:
If it took a being half an eternity to louse himself up, how long would it take to unlouse him?
Now before your mouth turns down at both sides and before you collapse with apathy considering it, let’s look at the miracle of Dianetics and Scientology.
It doesn’t take half an eternity. It doesn’t take millennia – though this could be reason-ably expected. It doesn’t take centuries. It only takes years.
That’s right. Years....... LRH
