                          CLEARING TECHNOLOGY
     Clearing Technology is a coalescence of the methods, codes,
practices and techniques used by Clearing Practitioners around the
     Clearing Technology is a growing collection of experimental and
established therapeutic techniques designed to help people locate,
contact, confront, relive (revivify) and release otherwise hidden
moments of suppressed anguish, pain, anger, fear, sorrow and apathy
resulting from loss, death, departure, reversal and other trauma in
their lives, with the resulting healing of their body, heart, mind and
soul from self imposed psychotraumatic conditions created by the being
to deal with the trauma.
     It is a collection of highly tested and testable practical
techniques by which a person can improve their own life in their own
estimation, by handling in a permanent fashion, self imposed barriers of
body, heart, mind and soul.
     Clearing is a Technology in the sense of a body of techniques.
     Technology 2.) the application of knowledge for practical ends, as
in a particular field, e.g.  educational Technology.  (From Greek,
technologia, systematic treatment.)
     Technique 2.) the body of specialized procedures and methods used
in any specific field of endeavor, 3.) technical skill; the ability to
apply procedures or methods so as to effect a desired result.  (From
Greek, techne, art or craft.)
     Both definitions are taken from The Random House College
Dictionary, Copyright 1975.
     Clearing Technology is a quickly growing subject of great richness
and diversity.  By forming this group we wish to aid in the survival of
those who would see Clearing Technology OF ANY KIND grow and expand into
a respectable subject, freely available and of benefit to all on a world
wide basis, independent of race, creed, color, religion, national origin
or sexual preference.
     We also wish the subject to be openly available to investigation by
anyone interested in doing so.
     There is much discussion on as to whether
Clearing Technology is a science, a religion, or a science of religion.
     Because Clearing Technology deals with the repair of the human
body, heart, mind and soul from psychic influences it is classified as a
religion.  However its methods are those of science, so it is also a
     Although the matter is open to debate, the aims of Clearing
Technology are clearly Religious in nature, and its methods, being based
on observation, hypothesis and experiment, are clearly Scientific in
     Clearing Technology is a Scientific approach to Religion, as best
it can be, given the nature of the subject under study.
     In any case Clearing Technology is certainly a BODY OF TECHNIQUE
whose application to oneself gives rise to long term desirable end
results in one's self, in one's own estimation.
     One more point, the people who come into Clearing Technology almost
always HAVE a religion firmly in place, even if it is the religion of no
religion.  These people are not looking for a new religion, and they are
certainly not interested in being forced to change their religion or
HAVE a religion.  Most of them also consider that it would be improper
or heretical to follow two religions at once.  Thus, since Clearing Tech
is of great benefit to all people regardless of what religious beliefs
they hold, it is imperative that Clearing Tech NOT be considered an
independent religion of its own lest it drive away ALL of its members.
     However by declaring Clearing Tech a merely secular activity, it
loses the protection afforded to those things which are covered by our
Constitutional rights to freedom of religion and its practice.  Thus
declared, Clearing Technology would be left open to suppressive
interference by government, medical, and psychiatric agencies.  Since
Clearing Technology flies in the face of the financial and control
interests of the governmental, medical and psychiatric professions, it
has come under no small measure of attack.
     Thus many Clearing Practitioners have solved this dilemma by
shielding their practice of Clearing Technology under the umbrella of
their own legally established but personal Churches, usually of whatever
denomination they were brought up in.  Anyone can start a personal
Church, and might consider doing so if they intend to practice Clearing
Tech in a serious manner.  You don't HAVE to take the tax breaks offered
to religions, which will keep the IRS off your back.
     Thus Christians, Jews, Muslims, and anyone else can offer Clearing
Technology to their parishioners without offending them with 'other'
religions, and still maintain the protection offered in the free world
by the sanctity of the Church to Spiritual Counseling.
     Clearing technology is thus a generic religion, it is the operating
manual if the GodSoul.
     This newsgroup will,
     1.) Be unmoderated and openly available to anyone with an interest

gain or power play.
     12.) Low hype notices by practioners of Clearing Technology to let
those who wish to partake of their services know what services are being

     Dear People,
     I have formed a new mailing list called CLEAR-L which is gatewayed
to a.c.t.  
     This will allow those who are not able to receive a.c.t to get
quality pro Clearing tech postings from those who wish to share their
tech and their experiences.
     Anyone may sign up to CLEAR-L, even if you don't intend to post,
and even if you get a.c.t.  This means that you will receive in your
mailbox postings that will also go to a.c.t.
     If you post cow pies, dharma treason, hostile noise or pure
stupidity to CLEAR-L I will remove you.  You will be given one warning,
if you do it again you are off the list for good.
     I am the sole judge and only authority in this matter.
     Bluntly, CLEAR-L is a tyranny of one, me.
     After one warning, if you get bounced, you get bounced for GOOD.
     You may subscribe to CLEAR-L by going to:
     You may post to CLEAR-L by sending your posting in a mail file to,
     Your subscription to CLEAR-L is confidential, no one can find out
who is subscribed except myself.  If you don't trust me, you are out of
     You can not subscribe using an anonymous id, I wish you could, but
its not presently feasible.
     Subscribing to CLEAR-L alone does not endanger your anonymity,
however posting to CLEAR-L will.
     I will however be posting most of my primary postings to a.c.t via
CLEAR-L.  Of course discussion will take place on a.c.t as usual.
     If the noise level on a.c.t can be kept to a minimum perhaps we can
consider making it a two way gateway between CLEAR-L and a.c.t.
