In Scientology this state has been attained. It has been achieved not on a temporary basis, subject to relapse, but on a stable plane of full awareness and ability, unqualified by accident or deterioration. And not limited to a few.

By eradicating the reactive mind we not only achieve in the state of Clear an erasure of the seeming evil in man, who is basically good, we have overcome the barriers which made it so difficult to attain total spiritual independence and serenity.

We call this state “Operating Thetan.” To operate something is to be able to handle it. Thetan is from the Greek letter “theta” the traditional philosopher’s symbol (from the letter in the Greek alphabet “theta” [theta] ) of thought, spirit or life. Thus it means a being who as a spirit alone can handle things.

The definition of the state of Operating Thetan is “Knowing and willing cause over Life, Thought, Matter, Energy, Space and Time.”
