Many chains, locks, secondaries and engrams are available on any pc. But some of them are beyond the pc’s reality and ability and some of them are too featherweight to get any case gain. This rundown is designed to locate items that can be run R3RA. It is called the Dianetic Prepared Assessment Rundown.
The very earliest assessment (1948) used was “What the pc could see” when he closed his or her eyes. This was then run.
This was followed by an arbitrary method of assigning necessary incidents to be run such as birth and prenatals.
The next earliest assessment (1949) was to ask each time for “the incident necessary to resolve the case.” An automaticity known as the “File Clerk” was depended upon, impinged on by finger snapping.
The next period (1951) concerned whole track exploration running whatever you could get to read on a meter.
The next period (1952) concerned overt engrams located by what the pc seemed to be doing physically.
This ended the Dianetic period when engrams were run to clear a case.
Variations of these assessments were revived from time to time in Dianetic uses, culminating in the 5th ACC where overt engrams were run with confront and great stress was laid on getting the postulates out of them. The meter and shrewd guesses played their part in assessments.
Significance and story content have no bearing on the rightness or wrongness of a chain selected. They are entirely incidental to judging the correctness of a chain.
1. The first action of this RD is to assess the following list:
2. You then take an item found as above and ask the pc to describe it briefly. Ask him, “In your own words briefly describe (item that read).”
3. Use the exact wording the pc gave you in 2. Treat that wording as an original item exactly as though it had been obtained on the Original Assessment List NED Series 5.
4. Handle the items in 3 above exactly as you would handle any original item or items in NED Series 4 (Assessment and How to Get the Item).
5. Exhaust all reading items on the above prepared list.
6. Reassess the prepared list and do 2 to 5 above.
7. When this prepared list no longer gives reads and only F/Ns you have finished Action Fourteen.
If you run into any trouble an L3RE should be done immediately.
Done correctly, with standard R3RA and flawless metering the gains from this rundown will not be small.
