Solo Level 2 cracks the solid block of congealed entities the average Earth-dweller is identified with, and breaks it to pieces. These pieces are then auditable individually. This is done on Solo 3.
Solo 1 drives fissures into the block, Solo 2 cracks it, Solo 3 cleans up the
Excalibur goes a step further and cleans up the bits stuck to the back of one's coat. It undoes the specifically personal identification of the Solo-auditor with the R6 Bank, and it handles "theta electronics", i.e. transmitting devices connecting one with groups one would prefer not to be connected with.
The congealed mass of entities referred to came about this way: the C.C. Implant 1,5 quadrillion years ago was done on individual Thetans. It was repeated 75 million years ago as part of Incident II and was the first Implant after the explosion. Yet at that point it was not done on individual Thetans (as before) but on groups of BTs. Very messy indeed!
It was followed by a further Implant series called the OT 2 Implants. Then followed the 36 day marathon Implant containing all the facets of "modern civilization" dramatized today.
What you get as a result of this is a very congealed mass of very solidly packed-together theta quanta. This is what needs breaking up as a prerequisite to auditing the actual Incident II story. The Level of OT 2 gets its name from the "OT 2" Implant mentioned above.
It used to be audited straight after Solo 1. Yet since 1978, when Dianetic Clear and Natural Clear were announced, people were put on OT 1 and OT 2 without having done their C.C.
This is a skipped gradient as well as a disastrous mistake. Before 1978 it was thought that Clear was to be the result of auditing the Clearing Course Implant (C.C.). By the definition of Clear, this cannot be the case.
The ability of Clear is one thing and the GPMs of the C.C. quite another. No reason to assume that auditing the C.C. should make Clears. One doesn't necessarily lead to the other.
The C.C. is just one particular segment of the Bank, that's all. Anyone able to hold the cans without fainting, can do it. Which means that in order to do it, one would have to be pretty clear already!
Ron at that time worked on the theory that a Thetan is basically a pure Being except for his being soiled by dirty Engram pictures from the GE. So he assumed that all one had to do to make a Clear is disentangle the Thetan from the grips of the GE and its Engrams (LK1/p. 159). This entanglement started 1.5 quadrillion years ago when the C.C. Implant was given originally. At the time it was already commonplace for Thetans to own GEs. So the C.C. was the first Implant given to Thetan and GE simultaneously. It welded them together (LK3/ch. 4.2).
To get back to our argument: before 1978 everybody had to do the C.C. materials. It could take hundreds of hours. Then, with the announcement of Dianetic Clear and Natural Clear, the C.C. was called off and people were put right on to OT 1 and OT 2. Apart from the fact that they were badly prepared case-wise (and quite often not even Clear in terms of ability) this constitutes a skipped gradient: the C.C. was left off.
Look at the chain of events: earliest, the original C.C., 1.5 quadrillion years ago. Then, 75 million years ago, its repetition during Inc. II. Then, only moments later, the OT 2 Implant.
You must run this entire chain from early to late so as to crack the Implant aspect of Inc. II. This is done on Solo 2. Only this way can you break through to the actual story of Inc. II (which is then run on Solo 3).
Consequently Solo 2 consists of two sections: first, running the C.C.; second, running the OT 2 GPMs.
This is how you do it: as you know the contents of this chain of Implants you already know the basic on the chain (the original C.C.). So you don't have to start late and go earlier similar as one would ordinarily do it in Dianetic auditing, no, you can actually start at the basic.
The method used is not listening-style auditing (narrative) but "indication of correct Item" - one of the basic tools of auditing mentioned earlier.
The structure of the C.C.: it consists of five Implant sections (designated "A to E" in the materials) which were given 10 times in this sequence (10 "runs"). This is what you study on your Solo 2 course (see the checksheet in the appendix).
Start your first Solo-session on Solo 2 with a big friendly TR-0, space wide
open, and speak the following words to the tens of thousands of congealed
entities all around: "Hello, all of you! We are now going to run the
C.C. Implant that occurred 1.5 quadrillion years ago. Each of you please go to your own
first Item in the first run of the first GPM!"
This often produces good reads, even BDs. In this case repeat the instruction to flat (no further reaction) or F/N.
Then you take your platens, covered
blank sheet of paper, pull the sheet down a bit, read the first line, give it
"them" with good TR-1 and note down all reads.
You as the Solo-auditor don't have to believe a word of this. It is
alright to consider this mere fantasy. That doesn't matter.
You'll get reads anyway, provided you keep your Auditor presence with good TRs and no attempts to invalidate anything that's coming to you.
Maintain an open attitude and keep your opinion on the matter to yourself as you would in any session. And you will get your reads. Quite often pages of them. It's like TR-0 bullbaited. The Implant commands as listed in the materials (called "platens") hit a Button in you. Or not. If they do, the Button is repeated until it is flat.
On TR-0 nobody wants to know why the student is reacting. That's
the point. What matters is that the Button causes a reaction, and that the
repetition of the Button flattens that reaction.
With the Solo Levels - and any other auditing, actually - it isn't any
No matter how bizarre the story may sound: if it reads it's run. That's the
of the Auditor.
It's actually part of the code. You don't have to believe what the auditee tells you, whether he is an incarnate Thetan, a disincarnate Thetan or an entity. You don't want to know why there is charge, it's quite enough to see that there is charge. You help the auditee handle his charge. That's the long and short of it. After all it's his universe, not yours.
Keep It Light!
When you audit on Solo 2, do it lightly.
The idea is that there is this huge charge hung up in mid-air and you have to some extent identified with it, and now that you are addressing it, it will gradually deflate and that shows on the Meter as reads. Like letting the air slowly out of the inner tube of this huge truck tire now that one finally found the valve. So audit it lightly. It ought to fall into your lap. Don't force it. Don't exert even more pressure on those entities than they have to bear already! Your Meter will seize up if you do.
When you don't get reads on the first command on the platen, go on. Go down a half a dozen commands, see what happens. Go down a dozen. See what happens. Once it starts reading you can always go back up to the top and pick up the reads that will be available then. That's part of the tech of it (see the C.C. instruction book for details). It's either something or nothing: charge or no charge. When it's something, you drain all the charge out of it, to F/N. When it's nothing, you acknowledge the fact that there is no charge and get an F/N on that. Either way you get an F/N.
To say it again: keep it light. One doesn't have to have that sort of case, not necessarily. Some have it more than others. It may not be your personal case anyway. Perhaps you weren't there when it happened. Perhaps you connected up with this particular data bank fairly recently only. Or perhaps you just never connected up with it at all! Depends entirely on your level of awareness and havingness, as pointed out further up. So it's alright not to have reads and not to have that part of the case - but then you should have a clean F/N on that fact! If not, there is something fishy.
Editors note: This is in direct conflict with Ron Hubbard's data. They state that you NEVER go past an unreading Item and that it is disastrous to do so.)
F/Ns And The EP
F/Ns play a special role in this sort of auditing. You call a command off the platens, you get reads, TR-3 on the command, more reads, TR-3, more reads, TR-3, no reads. You go down to the next line on the platens. And so on, in this fashion.
When the reads begin to thin out, you go up a few lines and start working downwards from there. When you get an F/N you simply leave that line and go on to the next one down, honoring the little key-out that occurred there. When you come up to that same line later on, having jumped up from a few lines further down, you simply carry on after this F/N. And if you did only that, if you just followed this little rule of "when I get an F/N I go down to the next line on the platens", you would sooner or later get the following phenomenon: you call a command off the platens, you get reads, TR-3 on the command, more reads, TR-3, more reads, TR-3, F/N. Next line, you call the command off the platens, you get reads, TR-3 on the command, more reads, TR-3, F/N. Next line, you call the command off the platens, you get reads, TR-3, F/N. Next line, you call the command off the platens, you get reads, F/N. Next line, you call the command off the platens, F/N. Next line, F/N. Next Line, F/N. Next line, F/N.
Don't take it further. That's it. Don't force it. That's the EP. The Solo-auditor usually feels like "something cracked in my space". Rehab in case of overrun (which will occur if you try to squeeze more reads out of the action than it readily gives).
Note that the EP may occur whilst doing the clay demos on the checksheet. Some people get extremely emotional on these demos. The C/S must take this into consideration when looking at the ensuing session phenomena of that person.
When the EP has occurred on the original C.C. at 1,5 quadrillion years ago, you don't need to audit the repetition of the C.C. at 75 million years ago. You cracked the basic and that's it. However, you do have to run the next Implant on that chain, the one that was given right after the repetition of the C.C., and that's the OT 2 Implant. Same procedure as described for the C.C.: first an R-Factor (with "Inc. II" and "75 million years ago" replacing "C.C." and "1,5 quadrillion years ago"), and then running each line till the whole thing F/Ns. That's the end of Solo 2.
