I have made a technical breakthrough which possibly ranks with the major discoveries of the Twentieth Century. It is certainly the greatest advancement of 1973 and is now being released after a final wrap-up of research. It is called the Introspection Rundown.
The purpose of the Introspection RD is to locate and correct those things which cause a person to fixate his attention inwardly, on himself or his bank. This RD extroverts the person so that he can see his environment and therefore handle and control it.
In 1970 the actual cause of Psychosis was isolated (as given in HCO B C/S Series 22, “Psychosis”, 28 November 1970). In the ensuing years this has been proven beyond doubt to be totally correct.
But what is a psychotic break?
Man has never been able to solve the psychotic break. In fact, human beings are actually afraid of a person in a psychotic break and in desperation turn to psychiatry to handle.
Psychiatry, desperate in its turn, without effective tech, resorts to barbarities such as heavy drugs, ice picks, electric and insulin shock which half kill the person and only suppress him. The fact remains there has never been a cure for the psychotic break until now.
The key is what caused the person to introspect before the psychotic break.
The breakthrough was made on a person who, after a series of wrong indications, went into a full-blown psychotic break — violence, destruction and all.
The psychiatrist at this point would have sharpened up his ice pick, filled his syringes with the most powerful (and deadly) drugs he could find and turned up the volts. His “handling” would have been a final destruction of the individual.
What was done was an auditor went into the room, sat the person down and corrected the last severe point of wrong indication. Subsequent times of wrong indication in his life were cleared up, the person came out of the psychotic break and into p. t.
This means the last reason to have psychiatry around is gone.
The psychotic break, the last of the “unsolvable” conditions that can trap a person, has been solved.
And it’s quite simple, really.
Def. INTROSPECTION: “(L. from introspicere, to look within) a looking into one’s own mind, feelings, reactions, etc. ; observation and analysis of oneself.” Webster’s New World Dictionary.
Def. INTROVERSION: “(from intro — + L. vertere, to turn) 2… a tendency to direct one’s interest upon oneself rather than upon external objects or events.” Webster’s New World Dictionary.
The essence of the Introspection RD is looking for and correcting all those things which caused the person to look inward worriedly and wrestle with the mystery of some incorrectly designated error. The result is continual inward looking or self auditing without relief or end.
In a normal person this becomes a diminished activity, unhappiness or illness. In an R/Ser this becomes insanity and a psychotic break occurs at the last severe point of wrong indication.
The pc who originates to the Examiner about his case or writes notes to the C/S or auditor is introverted and should have this RD.
Auditors selected to do this RD must have recently done a Hard TRs Course and the Anti-Q&A materials.
They must be able to recognize a Rock Slam, which is a particular E-Meter phenomenon. They must be Class IV Expanded Dianetics auditors of proven skill on routine cases. They must not themselves be R/Sers. (The last requisite is waived in a self-salvage co-audit group where all R/S.)
They need flawless TRs, no Q&A. This Rundown is very simple but cannot be flubbed, as that will compound the errors and cause further introspection in the pc. It is better not to deliver this RD than to flub any part of it. C/Ses take note. It is an Ethics Offense to attempt this Rundown without the auditor having done the prerequisite training and a further offense for an auditor to flub on it.

An HC List could be added here if the pc’s “think” is still weird.
Note: Items that don’t read won’t run. Don’t run or list Q’s that don’t read or you’ll reintrovert the pc.
Frequent D of P Interview is vital whenever the case looks like it is not rapidly progressing. Also a quick assessment may be needed as a separate action to isolate possible charged areas of introspection.
At any time after Step 2 Objective Havingness should be done at session end. If one of the items in Steps 3-20 turns out to be false the pc will introvert further. In such a case indicate the fact of it having been unnecessary and get an F/N. Then run Objective Havingness. If the TA goes high (or low) and won’t come into range, assess a C/S 53RH and handle.
In the case of a pc in a psychotic break, the C/S would have to locate the last severe wrong indication, indicate the fact to the pc and get it corrected (as with a wrong item) as the first action.
Def. EXTROVERSION: “… Means nothing more than being able to look outward…” “An extroverted personality is one who is capable of looking around the environment…” “A person who is capable of looking at the world around him and seeing it quite real and quite bright is of course in a state of extroversion.” (Problems of Work.)
The end phenomena of the Introspection RD is the person extroverted, no longer looking inward worriedly in a continuous self-audit without end.
The EP on a person in a psychotic break is the end of the psychotic break.
The RD is very simple and its results are magical in effectiveness. Flubs can wreck it so don’t permit them.
You have in your hands the tool to take over mental therapy in full. You need not fear the insane or the psychotic break any longer.
Here also is the cure for the continual self-auditing pc who is dug into his bank. It works on all pcs in fact with rave results.
Do it flawlessly and we all win.
This planet is ours.
