From R6 Solo to OT III one does not do anything except keep the pc winning for R6 Solo to OT III.
This is the critical band of the Gradation Chart.
On Flag it was learned the hard way that you don’t do other major auditing actions between these two points.
Example: Action — Completed R6, Clear and OT I, then a Dianetic Completion was attempted. Result — failure. Right Action — Complete Dianetics before R6. Right Action — let it go until OT III well begun, then complete Dianetics.
Example: Pre OT doing OT II. A new PTS RD is done. Failure. Right Action-do it before R6 or after OT III.
Example: R6 done. Drug RD given. Result. Poor. Right Action — Do Drug RD before R6.
It will be found that a pc cannot confront doing Solo Grades. The reason will be found to be Drugs. All pcs who “cannot run engrams” can run Drug Engrams. They are afraid because they get into the bank heavily when on Drugs. Only Drugs can be run.
So a pc who has “done R6 and Clearing Course but hasn’t made it” will be found to be a rabbiting (frightened and running away) druggie. He can and will run Drug Engrams.
Thus the right action is to do a full Drug Rundown, then start the pc all over again at R6.
It is an exception only because he hasn’t done his Solo anyway.
Where a Pre OT hasn’t made the grade of a Solo level (or gets sick afterwards) a full repair must be done and the failed grade must be completed before he goes on up.
It is possible to repair a Pre OT between R6 and OT III so long as you are not trying to handle his whole case but only repairing the grade he missed.
Never order TRs after Solo Materials study or before OT III is attested.
TRs should be done before or during Solo Auditing study but not after materials are issued. And the TR Course may not be done from then on to OT III.
A partially completed earlier TR Course found to be hanging up a pc on Solo Grades can be handled to completion and should be. This does not mean long additional hours of TR 0. It usually means word clearing on the TR materials and rehab.
It is a very losing game to throw a major rundown in between R6 and OT III. Such as L10 after Clearing and before OT I. The result is a mess.
The way to recover such a blunder is to get the pc rehabbed or to a rest point and then finish up the Solo Grades to OT III attest and then complete the rundown.
It is therefore very important that a pc be fully set up including Dianetics before he is let onto R6 Solo materials study.
None of this states that you cannot improve a pc’s auditing skill between R6 and OT III (excepting only TRs).
Big wins are to be had by doing so.
The major cause of failure on solo grades is the inability to audit.
You can take a Pre OT who didn’t really make Clear or OT I and move him back to R6 study and retread him as an auditor and then let him move back up the line and he’ll win.
The sources of failure on Solo are
1. No Drug RD.
2. Dianetics Incomplete.
3. Case not set up.
4. Inability to audit.
Realize that from R6 to OT III you have a closed band for other major actions.
So don’t let people onto R6 Auditing who have points 1-4 out.
If it has happened, patch it up as you can and let the pre OT get on with it.
Then after the first OT III attest, do whatever you like or that needs to be done before sending him on to OT IV.
