The key-in mechanism chain and thoroughness
December 25, 2009 from R3X Blog
So far the key-in mechanism chain has proven itself to be unique in its ability to clear a case. For this reason I believe it should be run as thoroughly as possible. That doesn't mean to throw out common sense and run the process rotely without regard to overrun, but rather one needs to run every aspect of it that is feasible.
Basic basic on this chain should involve separation from static. After running the incident down to the shock moment from every viewpoint, one would then run the shift as always.
The more thorough way of doing all this would be to run only one button at a time. For the incident one could run "move to the beginning of the incident" and "with particular attention to anything hidden, move through to the end of the incident." followed by 6-directions as needed.
The same pattern could be continued on through the running of the incident itself, and then the shift to the end of the entire procedure. So when the shift starts getting run, the auditor could say "With particular attention to anything hidden move through that moment of shift from beginning to end". This would be followed by 6-directions, and then a repeat of the command. This would be done until the "hidden" button is flat, after which the next button would be taken up. This would continue until every button is exhausted of charge.
The same procedure could be done from the viewpoints of whatever "others" were involved in the incident. The commands for this would be "From the viewpoints of... (all the others, or whatever), with particular attention to anything hidden, move through that moment of shift from beginning to end." followed by 6-directions as needed. This procedure would be repeated for every button until all are exhausted.
This is as far as I have taken this particular style of R3X so far. And I have done it this way only on one person so far. Therefore this application of the R3X procedure is at this time preliminary and experimental. It has however been very fruitful. The gains from running basic basic in this manner has been favorably compared to the L's, and often remarked on as being even superior to them. The reason I say all this is not to brag but rather to alert auditors to the potential this particular item chain has for clearing a case. Since it's unique, it would be worth the effort at being as thorough as possible in running it.
I normally wait until a particular technique has proven itself over the course of auditing several clients before going public with it, but in this case I feel it's important that everybody who is run on the key-in mechanism be given the chance to clear away every bit of charge that presents itself.
