PRIOR CONFUSION, 1. all sticks on the time track stick because of a prior confusion. The most stuck point on the track is a problem. The confusion occurred minutes, days, weeks before this problem. (HCOB 9 Nov 61) 2. all somatics, circuits, problems and difficulties including ARC breaks are all preceded by a prior confusion. Therefore it is possible to eradicate somatics by sec checking the area of confusion which occurred just before the pc noticed the somatic for the first time. (HCOB 2 Nov 61)
