First mentioned at the June Congress 1952 at 1407 North Central, Phoenix, Arizona (the first Scientology Congress), compulsive outflow and obsessive withhold are alike aberrated.
With the advent of Security Checking as a process (as opposed to a prevention of subversion) and the 1960 work on overt-withhold and responsibility, still continuing, means of “cracking cases” now lie open to the skilled auditor which, if expertly done, are capable of cracking the most resistant case.
The main emphasis has been lately upon withholds. These, coming after the confusion of an overt, of course hang up on the track and tend to stop the pc in time. The overt is the forward motion, the withhold coming after it is the inward motion.
While not ranking with the power of the O/W mechanism, there are, however, some very important flows which could be released and which, if released from the bank, could assist Security Checking. These are “laudable outflows” and some others.
The most important flows can be listed as follows:
2. Restrained Outflow.
4. Restrained Inflow.
All ridges and masses develop around these flows.
You recognize in 1, Outflow, the overt act, as its most important item. In 2, Restrained Outflow, you recognize all withholds. In 3, Inflow, we have a less well studied flow and in 4, Restrained Inflow, we have a newcomer to Scientology.
In that we have heretofore considered Inflow as Other-Determined it has not seemed aberrative on the basis that all acts that influence a thetan are done by himself.
But Inflow and Restrained Inflow can be Self-Determined Actions, as well as Other-Determined and therefore merit study.
Thus all four principal flows can be Self-Determined or they can be Other Determined. Thus all four flows can be aberrative.
In an effort to speed up Security Checking as class of processes, I am now studying 3. Inflow and 4. Restrained Inflow.
An example of Inflow would be Eating. An example of Restrained Inflow would be Dieting.
A general process which covers all four of these flows in the most general form would be:
What had to be outflowed?
What had to be withheld?
What had to be inflowed?
What had to be held off?
This process is a safe process for a Class IIb or an auditor in training to run on HGC pcs or others.
It is a cyclic process and is ended with the cyclic wording in Model Session.
