Additional step for shock moment handling
December 18, 2006 on R3X Course
From a post to DianeticR3X
When using the special attention buttons on heavy early track incidents like implants that contain a lot of force, it's a good idea, after running all the buttons (hidden, effort, emotion, thought, comm lines) to ask if there is still a moment of shock in the incident. If there is, it needs to be run out too. One occasionally runs into this situation. The operating stable datum here is to drain ALL of the charge available from such an incident. If the Pc says the shock moment is still charged, then the auditor should take that at face value and proceed to handle the moment of shock.
Going from handling the incident in general, to applying the special attention buttons, to addressing the moment of shock is like going from a magnifying glass to an optical microscope to a scanning electron microscope. Just when you thought you'd seen the last of it, a whole new vista unfolds. That's the way it is with incident running. You run the incident in one style until it's "flat", and then you shift styles and find a whole new area of heretofore undetected charge. You never go on to the next step until the previous one is "flat".
How do you run a shock moment? I don't bother with the full shift handling for a later-than-basic-on-the-chain incident. Instead I opt for a brief (though still thorough) handling. It's amazing how much charge can be still left in the moment of shock when the whole incident is already "flat" and run from so many angles. So one has to be prepared for a tough slug if it should occur, with the use of Before and After, Alternate Confront, and 6-directions just on the moment of shock and repeater technique, as needed. Thoroughness is of as much importance here as elsewhere in running R3X.
The basic command for the moment of shock are:
"Move through that moment of shock from beginning to end."
This is done in three steps:
1. from the Pc's own perspective, repetitively until flat, where the above command is used as written.
2. from each of any relevant viewpoints (perpetrator, other victims, etc.) with the command being "from the viewpoint of ... (terminal)..... move through that moment of shock from beginning to end", repetitively until flat.
3. from a pan-determined viewpoint. The command here is "from a pan- determined viewpoint move through that moment of shock from beginning to end", repetitively until flat.
The reference for the moment of shock can be found in HCOB 17 April 1956, also issued as PAB No. 80 which says:
"MORE IMPORTANT than pain and unconsciousness. That added bit can be briefly stated as "the moment of shock." "The moment of shock" is that period of realization by body and thetan that an overwhelming has occurred."
The relevant section of that bulletin was entitled: "BOTTOM RUNG OF DIANETICS FOUND" which is reassuring in that it means we probably don't have to dig any deeper into an engram to find any further charge.
