GLEE, a kind of insanity. Glee is a special kind of embarrassed giggling. You’ll know it when you see it. When you see glee on some fellow on a post, realize it’s because he doesn’t understand what he’s doing. He’s ignorant about something and above that is confusion and above the confusion is glee. (HCOB 20 Sept 68)
GLEE OF INSANITY, 1. a specialized case of irresponsibility. A thetan who cannot be killed and yet can be punished has only one answer to those punishing him and that is to demonstrate to them that he is no longer capable of force or action and is no longer responsible. He therefore states that he is insane and demonstrates that he cannot possibly harm them as he lacks any further rationality. This is the root and basis of insanity. (Scn 8-8008, p. 55) 2. also called the “glee of irresponsibility.” Manifestation which takes the form of an actual wave emanation resulting basically from the individual dramatizing the condition of “must reach–can’t reach, must withdraw–can’t withdraw.” (PXL Gloss)
