From Geoffrey Filbert's Excalibur Revisited:
Filbert on Drug Rundown
The next thing I want to double back on is to explain why a Drug Rundown is done. When a person is under drugs they are under threat because the body is threatened by the drugs. So, when threatened with the body unmocking, in other words, harm coming to the body, a Thetan will mock up obsessively. If a person takes a drug, the body feels threatened and the PC reacts by mocking up some bank hard below his awareness level. Drugs, whether it is LSD, marijuana, alcohol, or whatever, produces a threat to the body, like any other poison. The threat is to the body and the Thetan reacts by mocking up. He can either mock up an Engram, Secondary or some combination of fantasy and fact. In some cases, he will mock it up so hard that it will become more real and safer than PT. Thus, under threat, he goes out of PT. A person who needs a Drug Rundown, a person that has taken drugs in other words, have a Time-track that is not make up of wholly present time events. It is a composite of past track, imagination and present events. Thus, right before your eyes, the person is apparently in the same room as you are, doing the same things you are, but from his point of view, he is really only partially there and he is partially back in some past events, He seems to be there, but he isn't really fully tracking with PT. What is constant in this is that he is not running the same series of events as other people.
One other thing I might add is that there are other things which act like a drug and you can add them to the list and while your PC is doing the Drug Rundown, he may originate more drugs he wants to add to the list, so you just add them to the list. Any activity which is obsessive, addictive, drives the person out of PT, turns on imagination, and a person feels is a drug for them should be listed. If it acts like a drug, it should be listed and run under the Drug Rundown, whether that item be sex, romance, love, driving automobiles fast, money, working, or whatever, There are a lot of workaholics in society and they can't live without it. In fact, within the first three years after a person retires, if they are age 60 or over, half of them die. They just can't live without work.
The other thing I wanted to clear up is I used a process name very quickly, R3R, in running out the chronic somatics and emotions and also under the giving and taking drug chains.
R3R is a process whereby an Engram chain is run out. There have been many versions of it, many repair lists on it, and many styles of it published, cancelled, and then republished. It has been a point of discussion probably for over 30 years within Hubbard's writings. However, the proper way to erase an Engram is as follows.
You simply use the R3R technique on all four flows and, of course, you check the flow for a read and if the flow reads then you run it. Your exact command, say we are using the "lousy attitude" as an example, on 1st flow, your first step of R3R is "Locate an incident of another causing you to have a lousy attitude." If it was 2nd flow, the command would be "Locate an incident of you causing another to have a lousy attitude." If it was 3rd flow, the exact command would be "Locate an incident of another causing others to have lousy attitudes." If it was 4th flow, also known as flow zero, in other words, self to self, the command would be "Locate an incident of you causing yourself to have a lousy attitude."
The phrase "to have" should always be in there because a case is nothing but a havingness and you are looking for a permanent havingness. Within the churches and within the writings of L. Ron Hubbard, the command would be "Locate an incident of you causing yourself a lousy attitude." From that, of course, you would get display bank instead of permanent bank. The majority of the reactive mind is display bank and is only temporarily restimulated and it is not worth auditing. The minority of the reactive mind is in permanent restimulation and completely overwhelms an individual and that is what you are interested in auditing. That is why you give the proper command.
So, that is the first step of R3R: "Locate an incident..."
After they have nodded or said that they have or there is evidence that they have done so, you would ask them, "When was it?" They would give you some time, when it was. Say they give you "1942". You acknowledge and you tell them to "Move to that incident", that is your third command. You don't say the , you say that . -Move to that incident. When they have indicated that they have, you say, "What is the duration of that incident?" They tell you "Well, 8 minutes." The date and the duration are filed under the file clerk (a mechanism in the mind) and the purposes of these steps are to assist in turning on visio. That was your fourth step, getting the duration. So, your fifth step is, you tell them "Move to the beginning of that incident." As you do that your needle will fall on the E-meter™. Then, if their eyes are not already closed, you would say "Close your eyes, please" and after they have, you ask "What do you see?" They say, "A tank." You acknowledge it. So, then you give the seventh command of R3R, and you write them down on the worksheets this way as you are moving along , 1 , 2 , 3 , etc. ., "Move through that incident to a point 8 minutes later." In other words, at step seven you always put in whatever duration they gave you on step four. If they talk or originate anything while they are moving through you say, "Okay, continue", which would be your eighth step. If they are completely silent, wait until they look up and they have gone through to the end of it. Then, your ninth step is to ask "What happened?" On this ninth step they will run the Lock of re experiencing it in this session, of course, but they will tell you what happened in the incident. For instance, they will say "A tank came to me, or towards me, and ran me down and I had a lousy attitude in it at the time and it stuck me, stuck the attitude on me and I died there." You would acknowledge that, then you would give the next step of R3R which is, we'll abbreviate it as, A/B, which is two commands at once, you would say "Move to the beginning of that incident, tell me when you are there." They would nod and indicate that they have. Then, you would write step C down, which would be "Move through to the end of that incident." They would, then you would give the step D which is "Tell me what happened." Then they would tell you what happened on that pass through the incident.
If the TA has gone severely up quite a bit, you can then ask "Is it erasing or going more solid?" You can write E/S on your worksheets and just circle the one which it is. If they say that it is erasing, you put them through the incident again using the steps A, B, C, and D and have them keep going through the incident as long as it is erasing until it is erased, When it has erased you will have a FN, floating needle, VGIs (very good indicators), they will be grinning and smiling, cognition, then the chain itself will erase and you can verify that it is erased.
If the incident at any point starts to go more solid, you can ask "Is there an earlier incident of another causing you to have a lousy attitude?" If they say no, you can check "Does the one we are running have an earlier beginning?" These are the only commands you use in R3R, Steps 1 - 9, A, B, C and D. If you have some question as to whether it is erasing or going more solid, then you can ask. If there is no earlier incident, and it is going more solid, then you can ask for an earlier beginning. You go through the incident as many times as necessary to where the Engram is erased, the incident is erased. The reason you are doing this is to get this stuck, chronic, fixed lousy attitude off the individual.
After the first flow is erased, you check the 2nd flow by asking "Is there an incident of you causing another to have a lousy attitude?" If it reads, you would run it. If it doesn't read, you ask "On that question has anything been suppressed?", "Has anything been invalidated?" If both those are clean, you don't run it. If there is a read on either, you would run the 2nd flow. Likewise, 3rd and 4th flows.
After all the flows are either run or verified, you then check the attitude itself, "A lousy attitude", "On that has anything been suppressed?" "Has anything been invalidated?" That being clean and the needle floating, you then ask the PC "Is that handled and erased for you?" That being verified it is a done deal.
That is R3R procedure, whether you are running attitudes, emotions, intentions or whatever.
