The TA while running a chain goes up to 4,75 and the pc looks up and says it is erased the auditor asks because of no F/N "Is the picture erasing?" The pc says "Yes. It is gone, erased. " The needle doesn't move and the TA stays the same.
What is happening?
The PC is grinding to not-is. The incident he has just run he is not-ising so he can't see it and he is not-ising anything earlier, so he sees nothing so therefore it must be gone. But with the TA where it is, 4.75 or even 3.1, the chain is not erased.
I have seen a PC run in two different sessions saying it is gone, erased and feeling like it is erased, with the TA high and the auditor acknowledging the pc and just doing the ABCD steps, earlier incident when the TA moves up and earlier beginning when the pc says "No," or Erasing/Solid? when the TA doesn't move. Then suddenly the pc looks up with GIs and says there is another incident, run the incident, F/N, Cog, VGIs and that was that.
In doing Standard Dianetics the not-is will sooner or later lift and the picture will appear.
Hope this helps those auditors who set worried with the pc saying it is erased and the TA high.
