We were struck by the phrase “I’m co-auditing to Clear because that is the Ideal way to go up the Bridge.” Ideal Orgs, Ideal Missions, Ideal Narconons, now an Ideal Clear? We asked one of our correspondents to comment on this poster. It appears if this is the new emphasis for Scientology, it represents a major shift for the organization, and possibly means going Clear is more expensive than ever.
Co-auditing is the best way to go Clear, but it hasn’t been done in Orgs for years and years. It’s where you twin with someone. You each study the level and then you audit each other up the bridge. This way you become an auditor too. It was the only way it was done in the early days. One had to be minimum HPA (Hubbard Professional Auditor) or HDA (Hubbard Dianetic Auditor) before being allowed to attend Congresses. The Congresses were actually auditor hatting workshops – and that’s the way one got up the bridge.
In one reference, LRH states only 50% of your wins come from auditing and the other 50% from training. Then it changed; suddenly people were becoming what was known colloquially as “professional PCs.” So auditing was made more expensive to deter people from just being audited up the bridge instead of training. But now with the way prices have gone up, plus you have to have two meters I have a feeling the co-audit/training may be more expensive.
Trying to find twins is a pain the behind. Very few people can go to the academy during the week and a lot of people won’t study every night. It would be interesting to see the number of auditors auditing PCs vs. the number of students in the Academy.
