THE GRADE CHART: AUDITING TO HIGHER STATES OF EXISTENCE

To acknowledge one’s attainment of New OT VIII, a Scientologist may wear the OT bracelet.
 

OPERATING THETAN LEVELS

By “operating” is meant “able to act and handle things.” And by “thetan” is meant the spiritual being that is the basic self. “Theta” is Greek for thought or life or the spirit.

An Operating Thetan then is one who can handle things without having to use a body or physical means.

Basically one is oneself, can handle things and exist without physical support and assistance. This state is Operating Thetan, or OT. It doesn't mean one becomes God. It means one becomes wholly oneself.

By eradicating the reactive mind one overcomes the barriers which made it so difficult to attain total spiritual independence and serenity. Thus, once a person achieves Clear he is now able to become refamiliarized with his native capabilities. As man is basically good, a being who is Clear becomes willing to trust himself with greater and greater abilities. This is done through the OT levels.
