The Glib Student can confront the words and ideas.
He cannot confront the physical universe or people around him and so cannot apply.
He does not see Mest or people.
The reason for this is that he is below non-existence on one or more dynamics and so cannot align with the others.
As a spirit or being in a body he has no past or future and so is just a social machine.
Getting him up the dynamics by conditions by “Conditions by Dynamics”, HCO PL 4 April 72 (Establishment Officer Series 14), fourth page, having him do general confronting and do TR Courses the Hard Way and having him run on the Objective Processes cures this condition. It takes a lot of work, a lot of auditing but it can be cured.
Unless it is fully handled he will never see enough more than the paper and words to be more than a glib student who cannot apply.
