L. Kin is a practitioner working in Germany. He was for years a practitioner of Ron Hubbard's auditing methods at the head quarters at St. Hill, UK. He had however a falling out in the early 1980s.
After the falling out he worked and studied under Ron Hubbard's former right hand man, Captain Bill Robertson in the organization Mr. Robertson founded under the name, Ron's Organization.
They use Mr. Hubbard's materials up through Advanced Level 3 - What here is called Solo 1-3. They have developed additional materials after that Level. The section below is from L. Kin's chapter concerning Solo 1.

When compared with Ron Hubbard's different versions of OT I, you will find it is identical with Hubbard's 21 July 1968 version. It's the same procedure, just with L. Kin's comments and explanations added. 

Excerpts from L. Kin's Volume 4:
From the Bottom to the Top
- The Way Out.

Hubbard's work  and "...his OT Levels are an initiation to the most hidden compartments of the mind of
Earth-dwelling homo sapiens with the intention to produce a full-blown restimulation of his reactive bank.
And as it goes with all initiations: the person who isn't ready for them won't get anything out of them. One doesn't even have to keep them a secret!

"Reading a datum with one's eyes is one thing, yet being prepared to receive it into one's mind, quite another. (Which makes it alright to write about it.)

"Bill Robertson's Contribution.

"After this brief glance over the philosophical, political and historical ramifications of the matter (extensively covered in LK3), let us turn to the practical side of things and look at the peculiarities of each of these Solo Levels from the bottom to the top.

"Please bear in mind that this is the way I do it and perhaps not the way it's done in other places. But doing it this way, I can assure you, will give you results.

"I did my OT 1-3 at St. Hill U.K. in the late seventies, and it was a very unenlightening experience. The subject was so hushed up that not even the supervisor would answer questions! I didn't understand anything. And did it all wrong, needless to say. (Quite by accident I had a win, though. Probably
wasn't intended.)

"Things started brightening up for me when I met William Brenton Robertson ("Captain Bill") at the beginning stages of his Excalibur research. Robertson introduced me to the way he had done his OT 1-3 on the Flagship sometime in the late sixties, as C/Sed by Ron Hubbard, and that opened the door to a new and fruitful understanding of the matter.
Bill died in 1991, but amongst us OT folks that doesn't really matter. So thanks, Bill! Good job you did there.


"Solo 1 consists of 13 steps. It is done outside in crowded places. The Solo-auditor walks about counting people, comparing people with each other or himself, comparing individuals with groups, etc., as stated in the 13 instructions. Each step is done "to a cognition", as the instructions say.

"The action is started on the Meter with "rudiments to an F/N". As it's a major action you don't want any distraction, so you have the Solo-auditor start with an F/N (not just a TA check as the materials state).
Next the Solo-auditor is handed the sheet containing his instructions. The 13 steps are best kept inside a plastic wrapper covered by a blank sheet of paper so that one can't read them.

"The Solo-auditor is given the following instruction: 

"Go to the nearest supermarket or shopping mall or airport, wherever there are plenty of people,
and study these people with respect to certain characteristics until you have a cognition. 

"Take a note pad along so you can keep worksheets. Once you are there you pull the blank cover sheet off instruction number 1, study the instruction, and do what it says. It may tell you that you are to count men with red noses until you have a cognition. So you just do that and no more."

"A cognition" in this particular context does not mean that the Solo-auditor's case will explode in smithereens. It doesn't have to be a cog of the mind-shattering variety at all. "A cognition" simply means: the first thought that comes to mind whilst doing the action.

"It does not have to be a new realization. It may be a realization the Solo-auditor has already had before. He may have already noticed years ago that men with red noses more often than not smell of booze, but this may not come to his mind immediately as he reads his instructions but only after counting 35 men with red noses. Good. So he writes on his note pad: "Counted 35 men with red noses. Realized they all smell of booze." This way he goes through his 13 steps.

"Should the Solo-auditor actually have a mind shattering realization he would end off at that point and return to his auditing room. Doing the remaining instructions might spoil it for him.

"So he goes off and does that. When he comes back you tell him this: "Now sit down at your Meter and review what has happened whilst you were outside. Scan over the various experiences and realizations you have had. Rehabilitate some aspects of it as needed. Handle any out ruds. End off with an F/N. Don't try to make any sense out of this. Explanations will be given when you are on Solo 3. Just take it easy."

"Only that last F/N is truly the end of his session! The session began with
him getting an F/N, it continued with him walking about doing his instructions, it ended with an F/N.

"When he is through with all that he hands his folder in. You, as C/S, study it. You will detect sentences like: "Individuals are nicer than groups", "all people are different", "I'm not like other people" and such. It invariably happens that way.

"What sense does that make? Well, it's the boss Thetan giving indications to his congealed mass of entities who all think they are one. Or it's the boss Thetan picking up the originations of his congealed crew and acknowledging it. In either case a long-forgotten stable datum is put into the system: "You are all individuals! You are not all one. You may be part of a mass, but you are not the mass!"

"This puts fine hairline fissures into the solid concrete block called the R6 bank that the Solo-auditor (along with most Thetans on this planet) carries around with him. Technically, it works by the basic tool of "indication of a correct item".

"These fine fissures won't appear if the person has his attention riveted on the problems of his immediate life. Too subtle! But as these fissures are the necessary prerequisite to the next Level to come, Solo 2, you must make sure that the lower bridge of that Solo-auditor stands on good and strong foundations!"
