On two certain subjects the “Interest?” question is omitted from Dianetic R3R patter.
On drugs and when running Evil Purposes or Intentions one does not ask the pc if he is interested in running the item.
The requirement on both drug items and intentions is that the item read on the meter (suppress and inval can be used) and has not been run by R3R previously.
Many pcs, it has now been found, have replied “No, no interest” on a drug item, the item has not been run and the pc then continued to have trouble with drugs.
Checking back pcs who returned to drugs after auditing showed “drug rundowns” that were so brief as to be nothing. One pc who had been on LSD for years had only a I hour quickie drug rundown. Later this person relapsed.
Tracing this, in each case the “Interest?” question had been used and the pc had replied “No interest” but meant “I’m no longer interested in drugs.”
So Drug items that have read are run R3R without asking for interest. The command is simply omitted.
In Expanded Dianetics the same thing has occurred in running Evil Purposes or Intentions. The Auditor asked the pc if he was interested in running the item and the pc said “No” and so it went untouched. But the pc had it confused with interest in doing the purpose and missed running it and then fell on his head later. Tracing the case back it was found that R/Ses and such had not been run due to the pc saying “No Interest”.
Nothing bad will happen if the item is run.
The C/S must keep telling his auditors, on drugs or Expanded Dianetics, “Omit asking for interest on R3R on these (drug) (intentions). Run them if they read on the meter.”
In repairing cases it is good sense to check this point on drugs and intentions to see if they were neglected in R3R due to “no interest”.
If so, then have them run and the case will suddenly do well.
