     I just tried sitting at the e-meter and "being there more
thoroughly," or as I put it, "moving in and taking over."  Doing this, I
realized that I have a kind of screen of "somewhere or something else"
between me and the "here and now."  Also, while doing this, the TA
dropped and the needle loosened.  I'm going to do this again and see
what happens:
     Result:  TA 4.7 to 3.5 in about 3 minutes, and then in range 3.5 to
3.8 with yawns and sense of "elsewhere".  But good action.  OK, so I'm
getting another cog on what the CCHs do.  But for them to work, I have
to sense the tension between this now, and that then, i.e., sense a
"felt difference."
     This is new, the cog that some of my attention and concerns are
held in a floating and only apparent "present."  Is there some way to
thoroughly sense this difference?
     In the past on the CCHs, I've slipped into dramatizing, "I can do
what I'm told, do it well with no sweat, and now that I've proven it,
let's go on to something else."  I've been stuck with this chronic drama
for some time.  I can now see that it's better to sense and blow my way
out of this.
     Hubbard aggravated this tension as a way of getting attention off a
problem.  Talk about the problem to get it restimmed, then do TR-10
((confront)) (or a biting CCH), until attention is off the problem, and
on the PT environment.
     Then the problem was discussed until it was again restimulated.
Then back to the CCH, thus cycling into and out of the problem.  This
breaks the automatic "suck-in" of the problem and increases PC self-
determinism.  He can now say "Well, I can think about it or not, just as
I please."
     Is this what CCHs are all about?
     In the past, I've seen them as "meaningless."  Follow orders, dig a
hole and fill it up.  Like rote schoolwork, do it; pass the course, get
your grade and go on to another grade, a meaningless grind.  I know
another PC who felt the CCHs were "endless," that they were going on
"forever."  And another, a career military man, who saw them as a
     This is fascinating.  Three PCs each sensing the CCH experience
differently.  This led me to theorize that the CCHs crack into the
particular "is-ness" that the pc is "comfortably" sitting in, and
calling "present time;" thus getting him to look at the ACTUAL PT.
     Here is another aspect.  A says, "Look at that wall." and B
replies, "Why should I bother?"  Got a laugh and yawn on this.  "The
hostage crisis is important, or date rape, or the national debt; and I
should direct my attention to this and 'think about it figure -
figure.'"  This other determined directed attention has gotten into my
     Here is a way to handle engrams better.  Attacking how they direct
the pc's attention on an other determined basis right now in "apparent
PT."  Not erasing the engram, but breaking its automatic control of the
PC's attention.
     It's conceivable that the pc's control could reach such a level
that when the IRS man shows up, the PC could deliberately restimulate
and connect up a heavy black cloud hanging over his head of "those
financial disasters which have reduced him to his now near poverty
     This would undoubtedly assist him in "making his case."  And after
the need had passed for this mini-drama, he could then disconnect the
"black cloud."
     In Scn 8-8008, on p.10, Ron says:
     "The reduction of the command value of the reactive mind was found
to be necessary to a proper resolution of aberration.  Understand that
the reduction of the command value of the reactive mind was the goal,
not merely the reduction of the reactive mind.  It was found that there
was no purpose in reducing incidents out of the reactive mind beyond the
point where the analytical mind could step apart from the reactive mind,
and then command it."
     The above considerations throw additional light on the place and
value of the CCHs.
