Instead, you should achieve this trance-like status that has been described by several people on this group who did TR-0. In other words, LRH deemed it important that you achieve a "hypnotic" state by doing TR-0, just as many people on this newsgroup (and elsewhere) allege.

In fact he shouldn't have had to make any clarifications at all. But we've seen how some people appear to need clarifications -- and plenty of them.

In closing I'd like to comment on the "trance-like status" you've mentioned. You've not done this drill, and I doubt you'll be doing it any time soon.

I have done it. My opinion should be just as valid as that of ex-Sci'ts, and I would suggest that characterisations of this drill as trance-like or similar are about the *stupidest* statements I've *ever* come across on *anything* to do with the subject of Scn.

Instead of granting any importance to others' or my statements, however, you can read the basic instructions for this drill yourself. They are less than a page long. And they are simple in the extreme. (Which is probably why so many people complicate them and then require explanations and further explanations, and then clarifications and further clarifications.)

Read these instructions and ask yourself how anyone could possibly learn to go into a trance-like state or to become hypnotic by sitting in front of someone and learning to just be there comfortably and confront.

I've done these drills several times. Each time I've done them, and each time I've overcome whatever may have been preventing me from just being there comfortably and confronting, my perception has improved; my affinity for people has gone up; my willingness to be alive and *awake* has gone up; my ability and willingness to confront anyone or anything has gone up -- and I could go on and on and on.

Or don't read the instructions, but just imagine yourself sitting across from someone and learning, simply by practice, to just sit there *comfortably* confronting the person in front of you and whoever/whatever else might be in the environment.

With no undue attention on your body; no discomfort or nervousness; no compulsion to do anything; just able to sit there comfortably, *wide awake*, and taking in whatever may be going on.

This is what this drill is about. It isn't about *anything* else.

As I stated in a previous article in response to Jesse Prince, "Yours and others' attempts to obfuscate something this simple merely demonstrate the lengths to which you are all prepared to go to forward a perverted view of some things in Scn."

There may be things in Scn which require a re-examination and re-evaluation by Sci'ts. TR 0 and the rest of the communication drills is definitely not one of these things.
