     Ok, its time to look at some things to get a clearer picture of the
future.
 
     There are three classes of protection afforded to people.
 
     1.) Patents
     2.) Trade Secrets
     3.) Copyrights
 
     There are three kinds of patents:  electrical, chemical and
mechanical, and now people are trying to push the envelope by creating
software and algorithmic patents.
 
     A patent is given to those who build a contrivance or invent a
process that affords them exclusive rights to produce and license the
use of that contrivance or process for a number of years.  Part of
getting a patent is proving that your process works, and so none of the
Church's processing techniques have been patented.  The irony is that if
they had allowed more peer review and they had been proven to work as
claimed, the Church might have gotten away with a patent and we would
all be in much worse trouble now for it.
 
     A trade secret is a PRIVATE agreement between two people legally
binding the receiver of the secret to not divulge the secret.  It has no
legally binding effect at all on others who might find out the secret
from other sources or even someone who violates his own promise of
secrecy.
 
     It is true that often people find out trade secrets from people who
violate their agreements, but only the person who had the agreement is
liable under the law, the other person can do what ever he wants with
the secret including use it and copy it.
 
     The Church upper levels presently exist all over the world in
thousands of Free Zone hands, and so the cat is out of the bag so to
speak.
 
     Copyrights are granted to authors to protect the presentation of
their work.  Copyrights do not apply to the ideas expressed in those
works.  Thus if someone writes up a newly discovered process and fails
to patent it, you are perfectly well within your rights to read that
process and take it and use it as your own, as long as you don't
physically copy and redistribute the original write up.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
                                                                  PAGE 2
 
 
     The main problem with free zone use of Scientology is that so much
of it depends on using exact copies of various rundowns and training
manuals and correction lists etc.  Thus in order to practice truly
standard Scientology in the field, you HAVE to violate copyrights just
to get the materials at hand to run on your pc.
 
     Remember we are not talking about running a single process like
"What are you dramatizing?"  We are talking about something like the
Nots Series 24 Correction list, which according to the faithful must be
used EXACTLY AS IS.  Thus here copyrights are the biggest stumbling
block.
 
     A lot of people don't realize this, but Standard Scientology is a
'paper work' religion, the materials of training, rundowns and
correction lists etc, must all be completely standard, WHICH MEANS THEY
MUST BE EXACT COPIES OF THE ORIGINAL LRH WORK!
 
     Cute, huh?
 
     For example on correction lists, it is not enough to merely read
off the items from your one and only copy and write them down on a
separate work sheet.  THE READS MUST BE WRITTEN ON THE CORRECTION LIST
ITSELF and that copy then has to be placed in the pc's folders.  So of
course you have to make copies, a new one for each pc and for each use
of the list with that pc.  You might use an L3RD Dianetic Correction
List 30 times over the course of serious dianetic auditing and all of
them must be individually marked with the date and time and pc's name
and reads and so forth and placed in the folder with the session in
which they were used.
 
     The very basic of this is that Scientology is a copyrighted paper
work religion.
 
     So let's review this.
 
     Nothing in Church technology is patented (except the E-meter and
that's old hat.)  So patents are not a problem.
 
     Lots of stuff has been trade secreted, but they have been dispersed
to the wind the world over, so it is now freely available to anyone who
wants to use it.
 
     EVERYTHING in the Church is copyrighted, right down to the boogies
on the wall, so making copies of this stuff to use it standardly is a
real problem, and so is posting the tech to the net for discussion and
dissemination.
 
     This is not a problem with many of the individual processes, such
as the one I gave you above "What are you dramatizing?"  That happens to
be Grade 6, R6 End Words.
 
     It's not patented, so there is no problem there.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
                                                                  PAGE 3
 
     It is trade secreted, but everyone and their dog knows about it so
they can all use it and do.
 
     There is too little to claim copyright on, so it can be used
freely.
 
     However take the recent Nots Series 24 BT Correction List.
 
     It's not patented, so there is no problem there.
 
     It is trade secreted, but everyone knows about it now, so they can
use it.
 
     However it is copyrighted, and so posting it was a possible
copyright infringement, and making further copies of it to use in
session would be further copyright infringement.
 
     This effectively stops the use of that particular tech right there.
 
     But now let's look at a different subject, GPMS.  Specifically
let's look at the Clearing Course GPMS and the OT II GPMS.  Most of you
have never seen these structures, either because no one has had them to
post, or no one is really interested in them, or because they are too
hot legally to handle.
 
     I have added the Clearing Course (CC) GPM from Excalibur Revisited
below with further discussion to give you more reality on the alleged
nature of implant GPMS and the legal problems that they entail.
 
     The CC implant given below is NOT the same as the Church's version,
but for the purpose of discussion I want you to assume that it is the
same implant, as the basic ideas involved are similar enough to make the
point I am going to make valid for both.
 
     By the way the full text of Excalibur Revisited by Geoffrey Filbert
is available at the archives.

                              THE R6 BANK.

     This is a classic 9 line GPM, where each of the 9 lines contains
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
                                                                  PAGE 4
 
two opposing goals or 'items'.  Each goal consists of a ROOT WORD (To
Create, To Destroy), an END WORD (Affinity) and in this case a MODIFIER
(Perfect etc.)
 
     The 9 lines comprise one GPM within the R6 Bank.  There are 49
other similar GPMS in the same bank which have almost identical
structure to the one laid out above, except that the END WORD is
different for each one.  Therefore there are a total of 50 different
nine line GPMS, one for each End Word.
 
     These are the End Words for the 50 GPMS.
 
  1.) AFFINITY, COMMUNICATION, REALITY, UNDERSTANDING, BEINGNESS
  2.) DOINGNESS, HAVINGNESS, EXPERIENCE, KNOWINGNESS, CONTROL
  3.) RESPONSIBILITY, THETANS, MINDS, BODIES, IDENTITIES
  4.) SEX, GROUPS, MANKIND, LIFE FORMS, PHYSICAL UNIVERSE
  5.) SPIRITS, GODS, UNIVERSES, DEPARTURES, CLEAR ANALYTICAL MINDS
  6.) REACTIVE MINDS, GOALS, PROBLEMS, MASS, MATTER
  7.) ENERGY, SPACE, TIME(S), PICTURES, LIFETIMES
  8.) GAMES, HARM, SURVIVAL, BEAUTY, SANITY
  9.) DECENCY, TRUTH, AWARENESS, INDIVIDUALITY, CO-EXISTENCE
 10.) MAGIC, CONFUSION, STABLE DATA/CERTAINTIES, DEATH, LOVE
 
     So to recap, the R6 Bank is a bank of 50 GPMS.  Each GPM has 9
lines, and each line has two opposing goals.
 
     Considering that there are 18 goals per GPM and 50 GPMS, that makes
for 900 goals that can be dramatized as people 'sashay' down the R6
structure.  Some people will be found dramatizing earlier GPMS in the
series, some later.  If someone is new to a particular GPM, they will be
dramatizing beginning goals in the GPM, later they will fall down to
later goals in the GPM.
 
     For example Filbert claims that some people that we all know and
love are dramatizing 'To Destroy Present Clear Analytical Minds.'
 
     OK, so now what is all this?
 
     Is this someone's fancy or is this the result of sensible research
into the mind?  Well for one there are a number of different versions of
this GPM, the most glaring differences of course are between the one
stated above and the one that LRH offers on his clearing course.
 
     These particular differences are not the differences of two
researchers disagreeing on minor structural details.  In this case they
are two completely different GPMS.  Filbert claims that this GPM
underlies the GPM run on the Church clearing course, and that people who
have gone clear in the Church will still be found to be reading on this
GPM, but not the other way around.  Of course Filbert and LRH both claim
a lot of things, and no doubt if you look carefully enough both are
wearing metal caps on their heads to keep alien rays out.
 
     However let's look at the facts.  These GPMS were found with the
meter, which is a scientific instrument after all.  Further they were
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
                                                                  PAGE 5
 
found on a number of different people, and were found to have
essentially the same data in them with minor differences.  Of course you
can claim that the research was not done well, nor was it done double
blind etc, and it is very possible that this is all true.  It certainly
is true that the research was not broadly publicized and is still kept a
relative secret.
 
     We aim to change that, right?
 
     Now I can just hear some of you saying, well it can't be proved,
its just belief, brainwashing etc, which it all very well may be.
 
     It is also true that people's INTERPRETATION of the data may be
wildly off from what it really is.  I mean the classic interpretation of
these results is that these GPMS are IMPLANTS given to beings down the
whole track somewhere many lifetimes ago by other beings who did not
have the well being in mind of the those they implanted.
 
     This is INTERPRETATION of what is being found.  What is being found
is merely that these items read on the meter on some people, and these
people can be found to be dramatizing these goals, and when they have
run them out, they experience vast changes in their internal states of
mind, and even their relationship to the external universe.
 
     Now I know it is very hard to prove anything about internal states
of mind, and it can be questioned whether objective proof is even
philosophically desirable let alone possible, however there are other
changes that take place that surely can be verified if anyone is able
and willing to do it.  Clearly someone attaining a true and controlled
grand exteriorization should be able to go places and see things and
report back etc, all of which can be verified to everyone's satisfaction
and not insignificant amazement.
 
     That no one has done this kind of verification for you does not
mean it hasn't been verified for others, nor that it can't be verified
given the willingness to do it.
 
     It has been claimed by some that it is naive to demand that people
demonstrate super human powers in the present society, it has also been
claimed by others that anyone with such powers should want to show those
powers to 'convince and convert' others.
 
     The point is that it is the person who has the powers who must make
these decisions for himself, not the spiritually wanting, and even if he
does decide to put on a demonstration it may be only for his close and
trusted friends, not the ones with the loudest mouths who will then go
shooting off to everyone far and wide that they have seen proof.
 
     So it is possible that with some research into GPMS such as the
Clearing Course, it might be possible to come up with actual objective
evidence that running these things does people some good.
 
     Now, assuming that this is in fact the case, we have to ask a very
simple question.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
                                                                  PAGE 6
 
 
     Why?
 
     Why would running such a thing do someone some good, and why does
it have to be run with these items in order to complete, and not some
other items?  And can we find these items on people without telling them
about them, or asking them leading questions etc?
 
     As much as LRH wanted to find a Totally Nonevaluative Technology,
he seemed to be in a desperate hurry to 'find the answer' and then tell
everyone about it.  Finding the structure of the GPM on the Clearing
Course, then led him to TELLING people what the GPM was and that they
should run these items in this order, which of course threw the total
non evaluation to the winds.
 
     Worse you bring in the problem of 'belief' and 'authority' and
'suggestion' and it is a valid criticism to suggest that maybe people
are getting changes from running this stuff merely and only because they
believe they will and have paid so much for it that they had better.
 
     So the scientific side of this is a mess, but until further
investigation is done SCIENTIFICALLY into these structures, any
conclusions are premature.
 
     But look, let's ASSUME for a moment that LRH stumbled onto
something here using the E-meter, and that he did in fact try this out
on 100 different people and got closely correlated answers as to what
the structure of this GPM was.
 
     If this is true, surely if others chose to look into the matter,
they could possibly come up with the same data, or even other data with
similar structure.  I mean various researchers in this field fight
endlessly over the exact items in these GPMS, but very few will argue
with the underlying basics that GPMS as a whole contain ladders of
opposing goals etc.
 
     So some basics at least are widely agreed upon.
 
     Also anyone who has solo audited GPMS of any kind on the meter
knows very well what kind of needle reaction you get when you come near
one of these goals and opp goals.  They don't call them Rock Slams,
Rocket Reads, and Lightening Strikes for nothing.  You also know that
when you get a single item right, your whole body lights up like the 4th
of July and you can spend HOURS just sitting there letting the
electricity and charge run out for the first time in a million years,
and how good you feel afterwards.
 
     You also know that the charge is not in the GPM itself, but in the
later dramatization of the goals in the GPM and the overts and problems
that you had with the opp goals and opp terminals.  You know, Cops and
Robbers, Good Guys and Bad Guys, Churchies and Freezoners, etc.
 
     So all this subjective reality, accompanied by objective needle
reactions during such events, and objective similarity of the reported
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
                                                                  PAGE 7
 
data from person to person, would lead us to suspect that there is
SOMETHING real in these structures that needs further study, even if all
earlier INTERPRETATIONS of them are completely off the wall.
 
     Now let's look at this from the clearing practioners point of view.
He tends to assume that GPMS are not only real, but also exactly what
they claim they are, either implanted structures from the long ago past,
or self created structures from an even earlier time.
 
     As such they are a part and parcel of every person's memory and
make up.  They are real, they are recordings of events that actually
happened to the person or creations of that person or others that the
person took on willingly.
 
     GPMS are considered to determine the game playing roles of the
being for eons, and actually in some sense define the arena of play for
that being and all others who have the same structures.  In fact GPMS
are considered a kind of meta programming for games, they ARE the way
that thetans set up games for themselves in this universe, etc.
 
     Now it doesn't matter if YOU believe any of this, what is important
is that this is the deeply held belief of clearing practitioners and
here is where the legal problems come in.
 
     Some of these GPMS are very long and complex.  The GPMS on OT II
are notoriously difficult and cumbersome.  You think OT III is weird?
Wait till you see OT II.  It is surprising that anyone can even READ
them, let alone run them or FIND them for themselves.
 
     Yet many clearing people are claiming that although these GPMS are
generally correct, they have errors in them, and they of course present
their own versions of the same GPMS.
 
     It is also asserted that identical GPMS can actually have slightly
different items in them from being to being, because these beings got
the implant at different times across millions of years, and the
implanters were always fine tuning their torture and enslavement
mechanisms.
 
     If this is true, then it would be seriously wrong to insist that
everyone run a fixed and uncorrectable version of any of this.  In fact
one would expect that each person running this general area of the track
on themselves or on BT's, would tend to find these subtle differences in
HIS OWN GPMS and report back on them as he found them.
 
     Now what OT II is, is LRH's research record on 20 to 30 such GPMS
which HE CLAIMS THAT MOST EVERYONE HAS AND NEEDS TO RUN IN ORDER TO
RELEASE THE CHARGE BLOCKING DIRECT VISION OF OTHER BEINGS.  He does
admit however that it is the BT's who have the GPMS not the pc, but the
pc is being the conglomerate of BT's he calls himself, so sometimes it
is unclear whether you are running this stuff on the BT's or on
yourself.
 
     On the other hand the preclear doesn't know about BT's yet, so at
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
                                                                  PAGE 8
 
least at the beginning of OT II he doesn't particularly know he is
running this on BT's and clusters, this is left as a cognition to the
preclear as he progresses through OT II when slowly or suddenly his BT's
start becoming visible to him telepathically.
 
     Anyhow, you can't run BT's on OT III, until you can 'see' them, and
OT II is what is needed to be run to get back that ability.
 
     Or so LRH claims.
 
     And in any case the Clearing Course GPM is definitely supposed to
be YOURS.  It IS why you aren't 'Clear'.
 
     So here's the point, if these GPMS are YOUR MEMORY, or YOUR
IMPLANT, or YOUR CREATION even, then what business does LRH have
copyrighting and trade secreting them?
 
     Imagine someone trying to copyright and trade secret the human
genome of your body.  That would be absurd, wouldn't it?  The genome is
the entire genetic map for the human race, and also the specific map for
each human being.  Imagine someone figures out YOUR complete map, using
samples from YOUR body, and then hides it all away, and prevents you
from knowing it, or using it, or even coming up with it yourself, and
charges you outrageous fees for the right to fix your own genome because
THEY OWN IT!  And if they don't like you, they can deny you their
services, and even prevent you from fixing your own genome, USING THE
LAW AND THE COURTS TO BACK THEMSELVES UP.
 
     "We discovered why you have this genetic disorder first, we know
the exact code, we have trade secreted it and copyrighted it, so you
can't talk about your code or why you are genetically ill, nor how to
fix it, and you certainly can't DO anything to fix it.  And if you do we
will SUE you for copyright and trade secret infringement."
 
     This would make you pretty mad, wouldn't it?  Its a form of rape
isn't it?
 
     IT IS SOMEONE COPYRIGHTING AND TRADE SECRETING YOUR MAKE UP.
 
     So let me ask you a very simple question.
 
     Who owns your genome map?
 
     Who owns your GPMS?
 
     So look we have a problem here.  Some of us think the Church is off
course, others think the Church is totally evil, yet others think the
Church is just fine as it is.
 
     These are all a matter of opinion.  But there are certain
inexorable facts.  The Church DOES have secret teachings, which if
people knew about them, might change their view on whether they wanted
to be part of the Church or not, right?
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
                                                                  PAGE 9
 
     Further some will tell you that some of this data is somewhat
dangerous, it might cause some people to freak out or whatever.
 
     Other's will tell you that the world is just not ready for this
data, and if they knew about it, they would reject it, EVEN THOUGH IT IS
TRUE, and that wouldn't be good for THEM, right?  Mustn't let people
turn away from their own salvation based on their own arrogance, vanity
and conceit, now must we?
 
     Besides it takes thousands of hours of auditing to realize you are
just plum wrong about the nonexistence of BT's and OT III and GPMS etc.
You can't expect someone walking in off the street to recognize he is a
composite, let alone have the gumption to admit it.
 
     Others will tell you, well the main reason we mustn't let others
know about this is they will turn away from the Church, and our gross
income will plummet.
 
     So there are a lot of opinions here, but I think most of us who
don't think the Church is perfect, would agree that the world would be a
much better place if the secret teachings of the Church were known, and
available for peer review research, and if they work, then they should
be made available as auditing services at prices that are based on
competition and free market enterprise rather than prices based on a
competition free monopoly type environment.
 
     But here we run into the copyright issues.  How can we even discuss
SCIENTIFICALLY the Clearing Course GPMS or OT II, let alone do
experiments on them and correct or improve them or add to them if the
entire work of LRH is copyrighted?
 
     You know I can't even post for you the Clearing Course GPM.  And
you know why?
 
     It's certainly not because it is patented.
 
     It certainly is not because it is trade secreted.  I have no such
agreements with them, and even if I did, others certainly don't.
 
     No, you know why?  It's BECAUSE IT IS COPYRIGHTED.
 
     That's right, copyrighted.  That is the only hold they have on us
not talking about SCIENTIFIC RESEARCH.
 
     Now look, how can this be you say?  Well its really simple.
 
     Take the Clearing Course GPM.  Its a rather long affair, it has
multiple parts, it actually took many years to get the whole thing into
one coherent piece for presentation.  If I were to simply place the
clearing course GPM on the net word for word, AS IT APPEARS IN PEOPLE'S
MINDS, it would be way over the word count for 'fair use'.
 
     But why is it copyrighted in the first place?  Well for one
everyone considers it LRH's CREATION, HIS FANCY, HIS FICTION.  As such
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
     PAGE 10
 
     he has a right to copyright it, like any piece of poetry or
fiction.
 
     But if you consider it scientific research into the claimed
structure of your own memory, then it has no business being copyrighted,
any more than someone has a business copyrighting your genome.
 
     HIS ORIGINAL PRESENTATION OF IT CAN BE COPYRIGHTED, BUT NOT THE
DATA ITSELF.
 
     Take a look at the Emotional Tone Scale.  Now that is also
copyrighted by Hubbard.  And many of you can't seem to make any sense
out of it, and perhaps rightly so, but I would assert that it is not
just the creative fancy of LRH, but a direct (if confused) statement of
the emotional states of a being as he tends from success to failure.
 
     In fact there is an exact law that describes the tone scale, and
from this law anyone else can and should derive and formulate their own
tone scales, and valid comparisons and SCIENTIFIC ARGUMENT could then
proceed from those formulations.
 
     That law, by the way, is that emotional tone has to do with goals,
namely importance and probability of success.
 
     Just like light or radio waves, emotional tone can be considered to
have wave like characteristics, and like a wave it has both amplitude
and frequency.  This may be merely poetic, or it may be hard science,
let's leave that for another time, ok?
 
     For the moment let's just admit that Clearing Practitioners find
the analogy USEFUL.
 
     So emotion has amplitude and frequency.
 
     The more you desire something, the more intense the emotion or the
greater its amplitude.
 
     The color of the emotional tone (the 'frequency') is related to
one's consideration of probability of success or failure.
 
     Thus amplitude is determined by importance and frequency is
determined by probability of success or failure.
 
     Thus one can create a really quick emotional tone scale that goes:
 
     Joy
     Anger
     Fear
     Sorrow
     Apathy
 
     You see how simple that was?  It might even be right too, although
I am sure we can argue about it.
 
     Emotional Tone equals importance plus probability of success.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
                                                                 PAGE 11
 
 
     Here is another scale, more expanded, just off the top of my head.
 
     Sovereignty
     Exhilaration
     Enthusiasm
     Strong Interest
     Conservatism
     Mild Interest
     Boredom
     Antagonism

     Big deal.  But it's almost like Hubbard's scale, right?  How many
copyrights did I violate in that scale?
 
     I will tell you.  None, nada, zip, squat, zero.
 
     Why?  Because it is truth.  It is DATA.  It is discovery.  It is a
statement of how things are.  My version of it of course.  It is open to
discussion and counter discussion like all scientific knowledge is.
 
     Another slightly more silly example.
 
     Say I come up with a new chemical formula that cures meatballism.
 
     So I write a paper and submit it to Scientific American,
 
     "Our studies have shown that the following chemical compound is
effective in staying the onset of terminal meatballism:
 
     Di-phenyline ferrous thio-carbonic di-sodium per-sulfurous yttrium
mono-acetic acetyl salicylic para tri-hydrobromic di-thorium tri-nitrous
di-auric nickle di-chromium potassium mercuric di-cadmium ferric iridium
rhodium di-strontium chloro tri-gallium formic dyprosmium cyano acetate.
 
     Copyright (C) 1994 Homer Wilson Smith, All Rights Reserved."
 
     Then Chris comes along and posts to the net,
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
                                                                 PAGE 12
 
     "Mr.  Smith, as usual, is wrong, I have extensively tested the
compound:
 
     Di-phenyline ferrous thio-carbonic di-sodium per-sulfurous yttrium
mono-acetic acetyl salicylic para tri-hydrobromic di-thorium tri-nitrous
di-auric nickle di-chromium potassium mercuric di-cadmium ferric iridium
rhodium di-strontium chloro tri-gallium formic dyprosmium cyano acetate.
 
     and have found it to have no effect whatsoever on terminal
meatballism.
 
     However slight alterations to produce a triphenylized hydroxide as
follows,
 
     TRI-phenyline ferrous thio-carbonic di-sodium per-sulfurous yttrium
mono-acetic acetyl salicylic para tri-hydrobromic di-thorium tri-nitrous
di-auric nickle di-chromium potassium mercuric di-cadmium ferric iridium
rhodium di-strontium chloro tri-gallium formic dyprosmium cyano
HYDROXIDE.
 
     seems to be useful for polishing my car."
 
     A few weeks later, Chris receives a letter from Small, Larkin and
Kidde, saying,
 
     "Mr.  Schafmeister,
 
     This is to inform you that you are in violation of Homer W.
Smith's copyrights for 4 lines posted to the internet.  Statutory
penalties are generally calculated at $500 per copy, we estimate
10,000,000 copies were made on the net, so you owe us $5 billion
dollars.  Immediate payment will be necesssary to avoid litigation."
 
     I am sure you see the point.
 
     WHAT HAPPENED TO THE SCIENCE IN ALL THIS?
 
     So the irony is that the only way to stop the Church from its
alleged nefarious activities and to get the data out in the world freely
available to all, is to consider this work of Hubbard's to be Scientific
Research open to peer review.
 
     As long as you consider it Created Fancy, it will remain locked
away behind the closed doors of Copyright protection.
 
     THUS THOSE WHO NEED TO CONSIDER IT CREATED FANTASY BECAUSE THEY CAN
NOT CONFRONT THE POSSIBILITY THAT IT MIGHT BE SCIENTIFIC TRUTH FULLY
DESERVE WHAT THEY GET WHEN IT COMES TO THE CHURCH.
 
     For the rest of us though, if anyone were inclined to litigate with
the Church over this matter of copyrights and trade secrets, I would
study the point of view I have presented here thoroughly to see if it
has any merit, and if it does, then I would make sure that all of the
appropriate material from LRH's scientific research into the nature of
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
                                                                 PAGE 13
 
the mind, amnesia and the whole track was attached to your lawsuit and
used as the principle focus of inquiry.
