Hubbard claimed that his technology produces beings who operate at total mental capacity, and who are advanced beyond Homo sapiens.
I have just made a breakthrough in finding what a clear really is.
And we can certainly make it now.
The ROAD TO CLEAR is very definite and the state is very attainable today.
A Clear has no vicious reactive mind and operates at total mental capacity just like the first book (Dianetics: The Modern Science of Mental Health) said. In fact every early definition of CLEAR is found to be correct.
People have been unable to define Release to their own satisfaction. I find now a RELEASE is a person who has been able to back out of his " bank". The bank is still there but the person isn't sunk into it with all its somatics and depressions. The E-Meter reads at the Clear read! The needle of the meter is floppy. This is a simulated Clear. We called it a "Keyed-Out Clear" quite properly. But it isn't a Clear I know now, it's a RELEASE. The person has been released from his reactive mind. He still has that reactive mind but he's not in it. He is just released from it. He may go into it again but it feels good to be out of it. His IQ and ability rise and he is far more effective in changing his environment into a better one. The state is beyond Homo sapiens by considerable.
