THE GRADE CHART: AUDITING TO HIGHER STATES OF EXISTENCE
NEW ERA DIANETICS® AUDITING
The reactive mind plagues a person with the unthinking, irrational dictates of its contents and imposes anxieties, fears, unwanted sensations and feelings and a host of other undesirable effects. Freeing him from the command value such unwanted emotions exert over his volition provides new levels of self-determinism.
Initially, the reactive mind was addressed using only the techniques laid out in Dianetics: The Modern Science of Mental Health, also known as Book One. But L. Ron Hubbard continued to refine the techniques. The culmination of more than a quarter of a century of research and improvement came in 1978 with New Era Dianetics and the widespread making of Clears.
The effectiveness of these New Era Dianetics techniques is nothing short of revolutionary. A 1950s Book One auditor would have been astonished to see the speed with which Dianetics results could be attained with the advent of NED. The ratio has been estimated at 100 to 1. What once could only be achieved in thousands of hours of auditing can now often be realized in only dozens of hours.
The question may arise: If one is directly addressing the reactive mind in Dianetics auditing, why then are the Scientology Grades necessary? Chronologically, Dianetics came before Scientology; and it would seem natural that one would give Dianetics to a preclear before he received Scientology auditing.
