Now, you take preclear after preclear after preclear after preclear. You put them on E-Meters, you try to run them, you try to do this, you try to do that, straight on through, and you’ll find in each and every case you’re finding the phenomenon of entities, bodies in pawn, communications, spaceships, other planets, locations, beingness in other states and all of this; and you’ll find this to be a consistent condition. You have fulfilled this definition of the MEST universe. It’s evidently agreed upon. And it’s agreed upon because it’s actually true. You couldn’t go out and get somebody off the street and put an E-Meter in their hands and start asking them questions on this without getting the same response as you’d get from your classmates on it. They would know nothing about this.
I took a little girl one night during a demonstration and put her on the E-Meter and this little kid – I started to question her, and I was going to ask her about something just to show the class what the series of questions would be about current life. And the next thing you knew, this little kid was shaking in such a degree that the chair legs were rattling against the floor. And she says, “You mustn’t ask me any questions. You mustn’t ask me any questions. You mustn’t, you mustn’t, you mustn’t.” She was going all to pieces on the thing.
And I said, “Well, of course, it’s perfectly all right for me to ask you questions,” so on. “Where are you!” And she said, “I’m sitting before a big panel.” And she says, “It’s – it’s – I didn’t USED to sit there, I’m sitting there right now. That’s me. I sit in front of this panel. This is my job! This is my job. I’m not supposed to tell you what my job is, but there’s this panel,” and so forth.
I said, “It’s a communicator switchboard?” “NO-O-O!” And she just starts going on. I said, “Well, you wouldn’t mind telling me the codes that go across the panel” and she passed right straight on out. Interesting, isn’t it!
She’d never heard of bodies in pawn or other governments or invader forces or anything of the sort. So I snapped her around and carried on with the rest of the questioning, and was simply able to do so because I happen to know – this is a very funny thing to say, but I happen to know her commanding officer! And gave her – silly, isn’t it! – and gave her the messages which had gone across herqanel an hour before, at which moment she immediately quieted down. And she says, “Well, I’ll probably be taken all to pieces in the morning.”
And so I said, “No, you will not be.” And she wasn’t. But she was a communicator who was running a communications switchboard.
Now, another time, just to give you a consistency on this, another time in front of a class much as this one, I picked up a girl, put the electrodes (terminals) in her hand, and started to ask her about this and that, and we find her sitting in front of a communication switchboard. Girl knows nothing about electronics. If you told her to describe to you how to answer a telephone, she would probably bog on it a bit, and yet she is a communicator. She’s a communicator in a system known as the space stations.
The space stations exist out here in the solar system. They use the asteroids. It’s a very peculiar system. This solar system has a planet which is broken up, the asteroid belt. It gives a low-gravity platform for takeoff and so on, and that broken planet is of considerable interest as a space station, that is to say a galactic jump.
Now, there aren’t any planets up at this end of the galaxy which form a good galactic entering spot for incoming transport and other ships. But this beautiful, broken-up planet here with a light-gravity sun and so on, makes a very ideal spot.
And as a result, this area of the solar system got into prominence. It got into a little bit of prominence, and it’s slightly a bone of contention.
And there was – the Fourth Invader Force was here. The Fifth Invader Force came in to use this area, and the name of this solar system is Space Station 33. They started to use this area without suspecting that the Fourth Invader Force had been there for God knows how many skillion years, had been sitting down, and they have their installations up on Mars, and they have a tremendous, screened operation.
The Martian operation is a fascinating operation, simply because it has gone into 100 percent holding force. And it does everything it does with tremendous coversion. It’s sitting behind a defense screen of enormous size, and nobody – it’s practically impossible to penetrate that, except as a thetan. And if you penetrate it as a thetan, you go through the Martian screen, and they got you!
Well, now, the point is that the Fifth Invader Force operated for some little time here in this system without suspecting the existence of the Fourth Invader Force. And all of a sudden they started to lose crews, and they didn’t know where they were going. And they got a little more upset about it and a little more upset about it and a little more upset about it. And a battalion was sent down here to Earth 8,200 years ago, the Third Battalion. If you find somebody who is a member of the Third Battalion, why, speak up. Because the whole battalion, its officers, staff and so forth, was under the command of the expeditionary force commanding officer for this – not for just this area.
All right. Now, this sounds awfully wild. It just sounds terrifically incredible, but that’s just incredible in the frame of reference of Earth. Actually, this isn’t very incredible.
So 8,200 years ago, they came down in the Himalayas, the upper headlands, up about, oh, I’d say about seventy-two miles northwest of Khyber Pass, and put a base in there, and still not believing that there was anything like an invader force operating in this system, failed to take any vaguest precautions with regard to their installations. They put up no defenses; after all, what was here! Nothing but Homo Sapiens. That was just nothing, no danger, no menace, and so on.
And they were in this installation just a very short time when all of a sudden, with a terrific crash, the Fourth Invader Force, which was a little more active then than it has become since, knocked out this whole battalion (a battalion of that size is in the neighborhood of about three thousand beings) and picked up all of its staff, all of its staff officers and so forth, and took them through to Mars and then knocked them back into this human race here. They’re still here. There are saucer crews here; there’s all sorts of things on Earth here from the Fifth Invader Force. Very interesting.
This is directly and violently in opposition to the Fourth Invader Force. And the Fifth Invader Force, out of its own protection, took over Venus – oh, relatively in modern times – took over Venus and tried to stabilize the Venusian.
If you called a Fifth Invader, though, a Venusian, he would probably shoot you out of hand, because it would be a horrible insult. They merely monitor the government of Venus, and they leave Mars strictly alone.
Now, this is really, roughly, a rundown of the quote “political” situation in the solar system.
Now, that’s very interesting, because it gives you, as preclears, bodies in pawn of the Fourth Invader Force. It gives you tremendous volume of personnel that have been poured down here for various nefarious purposes, all of them under some kind of a covert direction. Typical game: every goal they’ve gotten, they have a reason why they can’t reach the goal, see! I mean, typical game sort of an implant these people are operating on. They’re relatively inefficient. But boy, can they hold on to things. Do they accumulate MEST and that sort of thing.
You’ve got your big holding operations. And you’ve got running through this a Fifth Invader Force operation which is strictly, really, disinterested in Earth – not really interested in Earth at all, as such, because Earth is a heavy gravity planet, and who the hell wants a heavy gravity planet!
Earth would be much better off lying in chunks in an orbit around the sun. But naturally, that’s a pretty rough assignment, blowing up something this size and putting it around, so nobody would do that. But completely aside from that fact, Earth has been used consistently as a prison; and it is a prison, and it is heavily screened. There are installations in Mongolia, there are installations in the Pyrenees here on Earth, and there are installations down in the Mountains of the Moon in Africa which pick up, very often, people on death.
And the thetan just doesn’t know what’s going on. He’s in a state of deep hypnosis, really, and the moment he finds himself in association with a dead body, the thing keys and he reports to where he’s supposed to go. And he’s changed and moved around here and there and comes back down.
Really, from death back to assumption of a new body and so on, is ordinarily a time period of about fifteen minutes, and he has three engrams in those fifteen minutes: 1) The death, 2) The wipeout and implant between lives, and 3) The assumption knocking out the GE 1 and taking over a body at birth. Very interesting.
All right. You’ll run into these things with pcs. That’s the only reason I’m talking to you about it, not to romance with you.
A body in pawn utilizes not the thetan but ridges. Here’s some of the most fascinating things. They’ll take a thetan and they’ll build up ridges, and these ridges will act like personalities, and because their wavelength is known, they can be monitored. So you’ll very often run into entities. And there are a certain number of entities and they’re in a certain order and so on, and they act like beings in a person, but they are not beings. And you want to know how to get rid of an entity. A couple of auditors here have run into this problem in the last week and that’s why I’m going over this ground with you.
Actually, this is covered to a very marked degree in the course books, and it’s covered in “What to Audit” <History of Man>, not perhaps with the frankness that I’m covering it with you now, but it’s covered.
Now, how do you get rid of an entity? You simply find where that entity is located geographically in the body. You do this with an E-Meter. Your next step is to find out where the entity is stuck on the time track. And you’ll find out that it’s some sort of an incident having to do with a body in pawn, it’ll be a between-lives implant; it’ll be something on this order. It may be that you will find that the person during an operation has suddenly conceived that he is dead, has reported back in. He obviously was not dead, and what they did was lay onto one of his ridges – which he took right along with him, of course – lay onto one of his ridges the fact that he mustn’t know and he mustn’t tell. Very often, when he appeared back in a body with the violence of pain of an accident or something of this sort, he killed the body in pawn to which he was very nebulously attached while he was here.
Body in pawn: something floating in fluid or under an electronic – constant electronic bath. You’ll find these described. They’re lying on a pallet or something of the sort; the body is completely motionless. And at the foot of this will be something that looks like a window, and it’s not a window.
Now, here’s a big joke for you. You can take a preclear and coax him to knock off a body in pawn, make the body dive through one of those quote “windows”, make him raise enough hubbub and hurrah so that he’ll be gunned down by guards, or something of the sort. It’s really not much of a shock because, you see, he’s not in that body. He’s just nebulously monitored by that body, because somebody can walk in, stir up the body, give the body a command, and he himself will perceive the command. This is a relay system of ridges.
Now, if you get rid of one of those things, run out the point where the ridge is stuck on the time track. You just run it out as an incident.
You ask the preclear to move into that area of his body and push on through the incident as though it happened to him. And he will tell you in a moment or two, “But this didn’t happen to me, this is just lying here”. Up to that time he thought it happened to him. It didn’t really. What it was, was a facsimile laid down on one of his ridges. And you will find that as many as five or more bodies in pawn are being held here and there throughout the universe for one preclear. All they do is take a – the phenomenon of ridge, you see, and they throw a facsimile into play on that ridge, and the person can be monitored.
Now, the most horrible of the entities is the stomach-area entity, because it’s in conflict with the GE. This entity is quite often responsible for nervous stomachs and so forth.
If you want to know something about coldblooded brutality and why people here on Earth are so completely, horribly fixated on “let’s be kind,” and “let’s get it organized one way or the other,” it is the utter, brutal disregard for beingness which you find throughout the systems. What you have here and consider humanitarian and so forth is a very interestingly built-up system.
There’s a caste system which is exercised in other parts of the solar system which would appall the most viciously minded duke who ever lived here on Earth. There’s slavery, and what men are put to in that slavery, how men are treated and so forth.
Now, for instance, the body in pawn, which will have something to do with this stomach entity, the stomach entity has become so terrified, they will actually go along and just kick it or shove needles into it or something, to make a pain shock come down and hit somebody here on Earth.
They’re fed with forced, quite often fed with a sort of a – oh, a paste of some sort, and it’s put in something that looks like a grease gun, you see! You just stuff the nozzle of the grease gun down the throat and push this thing down that feeds – that’s feeding. Really very interesting.
But you can keep a body alive for an awful long time under these condition – you’ll find people who’ve had bodies in pawn for some ten thousand years. They just go up and give this body just a little bit of a tremble, of course, and it just comes completely to pieces. Well now, as far as reality of this stuff is concerned, it has not generally been accepted here on Earth that such things existed. But I notice that we have what’s known as science fiction here on Earth. I notice we have that. And noticing it many, many, many years ago, I thought, “This is a good gag”, so I wrote a lot of it.
You wouldn’t dare write real science fiction – not real science fiction. Nobody’s guts could take it, that’s all there is to that.
So you’re looking around for brutality and what’s mauling your preclear around and why he’s in apathy and so forth – you better readjust your sights again as to what it takes to aberrate a being. It takes plenty! Takes a terrific magnitude of incident to do anything to a thetan – up in the billion volt category. All right. Now, as I say, this sounds science-fictiony. Well, don’t let it sound science-fictiony to you, because the truth be told, it’s not science fiction. In the first place, it’s not fiction, and it really isn’t very closely resembling what you read and call science fiction. Science fiction is just a very chimerical sort of a picture of it. Space is wild. There aren’t any writers down here and there’s no audience down here that could take real stuff about space. It’s wild! And …
Well, let me tell you a little story. This isn’t just a story. One of the Fifth Invader Force, an officer, came down here to take a survey, and this is very adventurous. And in order to take a decent survey of the place – of course, you understand the Fifth Invader Force officer carries a doll. They don’t carry bodies, they carry dolls. Their identification is a doll. It’s a very little, flimsy, mechanical affair that you can make talk and walk and so forth. They’re cute, they’re about a meter tall, they’re very light.
Therefore, you don’t need, you see – you don’t use oxygen in saucers. And all of this stuff in science fiction is just rococo. Boy, it’s rococo beyond rococo. It’s just simple beyond simplicity. You have this little doll, and the thetan energy that a fellow puts out is quite sufficient to monitor the control switchboard in the back of the doll, that’s all. I mean, simple. And he tunes it up, he’s got his wavelength tuned to it and so on and it’s – he can walk it around and …
He has, at the same time – in installations, he has what you would classify as human beings. I mean, there are people in bodies who are doing work in various installations out through the system. Bodies exist.
But I’m talking about officers, they’re a pretty high order of thetan. So, here’s a doll. He’s monitoring this doll.
And he parked his doll and picked up one of the persons connected with the ruling house of Hapsburg and went on a survey of the domain, and took notes on it. And unfortunately, he didn’t have any foggy notion of how violently this particular prince was hated. And this prince was assassinated. And before this officer could disconnect and so forth, the thetan charge which suddenly sprung up in the assassinated prince, KABOOM!, was sufficient to overwhelm and overpower this officer momentarily, and he went through the screen.
I’m telling you this because it’s an average story, not a spectacular story, not because it’s different, but because it’s the same. And he went through the screen, KABOOM! And he landed on an installation – well, about a few hundred miles north of the equator (what you would consider north, just trying to translate the words and directions) on Mars. Boom! He went through. And the Martians “Oh, boy! What have we got here? Ha Ha! Wonderful, Wonderful! A high volume thetan! He must be a space officer from some place or other.” So, they took a couple of standards, put them down at the foot of the cell and so forth, because they have a good identification through a body in pawn and so forth, and they decided they were going to use him back here against Earth. He wouldn’t transport! So they just threw him in the clink, you might say, and kept him there. Just kept him there and kept him there an kept him there and kept him there.
And one fine day he took the body in pawn and threw it through the guard screen and blew it up – was able to do this – and himself got free on the back concussion, you see, of this explosion, and went out. He went back down to a station we’ll call “X” and said, “Where have I been for the last twenty-seven years! Hmph!” Something of – on the order, “You should ask!” And he wrote out a chit, and they got a couple of cruisers and they put together a few commando forces and they took that installation to pieces – but thoroughly to pieces. And they took what Martians were in that installation and so forth, and put them in cans. As far as anybody knows, they’re still up there. But blew this thing practically off the face of the map. Most Martian stations are much tougher than this to crack.
That’s an incident of the tiniest character in a person operating … Now, I’m telling you that incident because it’s a fairly modern incident in the last few hundred years.
You’ll find lots of incidents like this in your preclears, and lots of background like this. And they can’t understand why their values are this way, and why their values are that way. And they’re trying to fit the most outrageous set of Earth values up against the values which they have had for God knows how long, and they just won’t mesh. And this assists in the oblivion that you find people in.
By the way, this is a matter of small interest, within the next century, that same officer had completed his survey back down here, and is up on one of the space stations now.
