DATE AND LOCATE
Before you do date-locate with a pc for the first time you must clear what you will be doing and the words and terms used. He has to understand this and know what is expected of him.
1. Give the pc an R-Factor that "You will be dating the past time of the incident (i.e. when it happened), until that blows".
2. Clear the word " blow" with the pc per the Tech Dictionary definitions:
Blow, n.1. the sudden dissipation of mass in the mind with an accompanying feeling of relief. 2. a definite manifestation and the pc must say "something blew" or "it disappeared" or "it's gone" or "it vanished," not "I feel lighter."
3. Clear any misunderstoods the pc may have on dates and dating or words used in measurement of time, or numbers (e.g. "billions," etc.).
4. Give the pc an R-Factor that "You will establish the direction and distance in order to find the past location of the incident (i.e. where it happened), until that blows".
5. Clear the term "direction" and the use of pointing to give a direction. Clear the term "distance" and any misunderstoods the pc may have on measurement of distance (like miles, kilometers, light-years, etc.).
6. Have the pc understand you primarily want answers from him, not the Meter. Explain the Meter is only a help if he can't find it and will only be used to the extent it is absolutely needed. Also, if the pc should suddenly realize the date or location he should simply tell you right away. Have the pc understand you are going for a blow of mass. Should that occur at any point of dating and locating he should make sure tell you, as that is the EP of the step.
Date to Blow - Locate to Blow by Steps
D/L Method 1: Pc Can Find the Data
Dating Drill No. 1
1. R-Factor: "We're going to date the past time when that (___) happened precisely, until the mass blows."
2. Ask the pc when it happened. (If the pc doesn't know, go to Meter dating, per Dating Drill No. 2.)
3. Write down the pc's answer.
4. If not already given, have the pc give the rest of the date right on down to the
fraction of a second.
5. Call the date back to the pc accurately and in the same order in which it was given, and it will blow.
(Caution: The blow may occur earlier in the dating steps and the auditor must not go on past a blow. If you suspect a blow of mass happened and pc hasn't expressed this, ask him if it blew.)
D/L Method 2: Auditor is Finding it with the Meter
1. R-Factor: "We're going to find the past location where (___) happened precisely, until the mass blows."
2. Get the pc to point to where it happened. (Have him point with finger - but still holding cans - in the direction to the past location.)
3. Ask the pc the distance to that location. (This is the distance from where the pc is now to that past location.)
4. If not already given have the pc give the rest of the distance right on down to decimals or fractions, until you have a precise distance.
5. Call the distance back to the pc accurately and in the same order in which it was given, and it will blow.
NB. If the pc starts giving you the location in some other way such as "At the North side of Piccadilly Circus, London," you would of course accept the pc's data, and not try to make him say how many miles away, or anything else.
(Caution: The blow may occur earlier in the locating steps and the auditor must not go on past the blow. Sometimes the blow will occur on asking the pc to point. Sometimes the pc, while finding the date, will also get the location and blow it too. If you se a BD and F/N on the Meter you should suspect it blew. If the pc hasn't expressed this, ask him if it blew.)
1. If it is not a this lifetime and/or this planet event, establish a workable time measurement system. It can be years ago or by year (1492 AD) or some entirely different system. Find a system that is real to the pc for that type of incident.
2. Establish the order of magnitude. (EM 22 and 25). Be open to any pc input throughout as he may only need some Meter help.
3. Meter date it right on down precisely, even to fractions of a second, until you get a blow-F/N.
4. If no blow-F/N when the full date is found, call it back to the pc accurately and in the same order it was found and you should get a blow.
5. If you didn't get a blow there is either an error in the date or some part of the date, or it is not precise enough, or it could have blown earlier and you didn't catch it.
To find out which by Meter-check:
Some part of the date was incorrect?
Handle what reads, and you will get a blow-F/N.
1. Get pc to point to the location to get the direction. (He should do this while still holding onto the cans). Indicate whatever reads on the Meter if needed.
2. Establish what system of measurement of distance (i.e. miles, kilometers, light-years, or whatever).
3. Get the distance, using the Meter and order of magnitude etc.
4. Get any remaining increments of distance on down to fractions or decimals.
5. Call back the distance or location as an indication, and you should get a blow- F/N.
6. If no blow there has been an error and you Meter-check:
Is some part of the location wrong?
Handle what reads, and you will get a blow-F/N.
Warning: If Date/Locate goes nowhere and the auditor can't easily correct the error in dating or in locating, do not continue messing up the pc with wrong dates or wrong locations, as these can be very upsetting to a case. In this case simply indicate to the pc that "there is an error in Dating or Locating". End off for C/S instructions.
A method that can be used in locating when applicable is given below. This must not however be done rotely when it doesn't apply. If you knew the incident happened in the recent past or this lifetime, you would start with "What country?" and not ask "What galaxy?" as that does not make sense, and would throw the pc backtrack.
You continue with questions to narrow it down to the precise location, to a blow-F/N.
Point (pc points with finger)
Distance? (including small fractions or decimals to get the exact distance)
Position on street?
Distance from front of house?
Where in the room?
How far from each wall?
How far off the floor?
How far from the ceiling?
Thing to Watch
In dating and locating there is a possible source of BPC, peculiar to dating and locating.
A correct date for one incident or mass can act as a wrong date for another incident or mass, as it is a wrong date for that one.
A correct location for one incident or mass can act as a wrong location for other incidents or masses, as it is wrong for the others.
It is peculiar to dating and locating that a right date or a right location can cause BPC by also being a wrong date or wrong location for other incidents or masses. This does not always occur, but is noted here should an auditor or C/S run into it.
Signs of this are:
It will ease or disappear on the indication that "The date found was a wrong date for other incidents or masses", and on the indication that "The location found was a wrong location for other incidents or masses".
a) pc getting upset inexplicably
b) getting a read on both "Correct date?" and "Wrong date?"
c) TA going up
d) increase of mass or pressure.
