|Lecture: Thetan Control, Part 1 - Handling Occlusion|
Hubbard lecturing on how to control people first with force, so they will accept control by words. Recommends tossing a baby's body around to assume control of it. Talks about how a person will react if the auditor is addressing the thetan directly, and how to exteriorize the person.
Well, this word method to control the body is no good at all. It's just nonsense. People who start to control other people with words don't get very far unless they have controlled people physically. If they can control people physically fairly easily - that is to say, if they can control the body, you know, reach over and put your hands on a body and fix it in space or lift it up in the air...
Toss a little baby around, by the way, if you want to come under - in final command of the baby's body. Not because you command the baby at all but because the baby as a thetan will realize that you can now control the body with words and so he'll start using words on the baby. He's perfectly willing to accept any method of control.
Now, a case that's become occluded is afraid of relaxing any level or giving away any method of control because his anxiety is on the basis of control of a body. You can exteriorize many occluded cases simply by making them run a concept. Now, this sounds very strange. Try to get them to run the concept on themselves, not on the body. Because a lot of your auditing is just being thrown to the body by the thetan. See, you're auditing a thetan which is auditing a body. You're not auditing a thetan.
You'd better look at a preclear. If a preclear isn't wobbling around very much and isn't floundering around and doesn't occasionally curl up in a ball and do other strange things, you're not auditing him. You are auditing the - you are auditing something that is auditing something else. A fellow who just sits there rather dispassionately, so on - he's scared to let you take anything away from him, so he just passes it on. And he's very happy about you a lot of the time because, you see, you're helping him out to get this body in shape so he can control it.
Well, if you can run the concept on him "I can control this body from two feet behind it," or "I can control this body from the left shoulder," or "I can control this body from alongside of it," why - and, "I can't control this body."
You'll start in "I can't control this body" on rising-scale postulates and just give him "I can't control this body from a distance. I can control this body from a distance," all of a sudden he'll say, "What do you know, I'm - why not." And he'll just give a shove. And he'll just be at a little distance and find out.
