Incidents and blank periods
May 25, 2010 from R3X Blog
If the incident being run contains periods of blankness, for instance, during an operation or in the middle of an implant incident, the blank period should be opened up and inspected as soon as possible.
If the Pc mentions anything about a "blank period" or there is a piece of track unaccounted for between the time he was feeling like himself and the point where his being was diminished, that should be a cue for the auditor to start in on opening up the blank period as soon as he is finished the auditing cycle he is currently on. For instance, if he is running the Pc through the incident with the plain R3R commands, he should flatten that cycle and then move on to opening up the blank period.
The blank period can be opened up by starting with the Before/After process,which would go like:
"Spot a moment before the blank period (or whatever it's referred to as)"
"Spot a moment after the blank period"
This is done 1,2,1,2...etc. until a blowdown occurs and the Pc has been able to view more of that part of the incident.
Other tools can be used too such as having the Pc describe the incident as an "imaginary" one even though he may not be able to view it consciously. Also the "What part of that incident could you confront?" process can be used too (not to be confused with the alternate confront process).
The reason it's important to uncover the blank period early on is so that it can be included in the running of the Special Attention commands and maximum data and charge can be retrieved from it.
