BY-PASSED CHARGE, 1. mental energy or mass that has been restimulated in some way in an individual, and that is either partially or wholly unknown to that individual and so is capable of affecting him adversely. (Scn AD) 2. when one gets a lock, a lower earlier incident restimulates. That is BPC. It isn’t the auditor by-passing it. One handled later charge that restimulated earlier charge. That is BPC (tech of ‘62), and that is all that the term means. (HCOB 10 Jun 72 I) 3. reactive charge that has been by-passed (restimulated but overlooked by both pc and auditor). (BCR, p. 21) Abbr. BPC.
BY-PASSED CHARGE ASSESSMENT, 1. auditing by list to help the preclear find by-passed charge. The moment the correct by-passed charge is found the preclear feels much better. (Scn AD) 2. a BPC assessment is actual auditing (Level III). Here one cleans each smallest read of a question (but not cleaning cleans), before going onto the next question, handling originations by the pc and acknowledging. One never does this with an ARC broken pc. With an ARC break one just ploughs on looking for a big read and indicates it to pc. (BCR, p. 41) 3. a by-passed charge assessment is auditing because you clean every read of the needle on the list being assessed. The pc is acked, the pc is permitted to itsa and give his opinions. But you never do a by-passed charge assessment on an ARC broken pc. These two different activities (by-passed charge assessment and ARC break assessment) unfortunately have the word assessment in common and they use the same lists, therefore some students confuse them.
