TIME TRACK, 1. the consecutive record of mental image pictures which accumulates through the preclear’s life or lives. It is very exactly dated. (HCOB 23 Apr 69) 2. the time span of the individual from beingness to present time on which lies the sequence of events of his total existence. (HCOB 9 Mar 60) 3. the endless record, complete with fifty-two perceptions of the pc’s entire past. The time track is a very accurate record of the pc’s past, very accurately timed, very obedient to the auditor. If motion picture film were 3D, had fifty-two perceptions and could fully react upon the observer, the time track could be called a motion picture film. It is at least 350,000,000,000,000 years long, probably much longer, with a scene about every 1/25 of a second. (HCOB 15 May 63) 4. consists of all the consecutive moments of “now” from the earliest moment of life of the organism to present time. Actually, the track is a multiple bundle of perceptics; and it might be said that there is a time track for each perceptic, all tracks running simultaneously. The track might also be considered as a system of filing recordings made of the environment and the organism, filed according to time received. All the perceptions of the environment and the organism during the entire lifetime, up to now, or present time, are recorded, faintly or deeply, upon the time track. (SOS, p. 102)
