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

Note: 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 chapters below are L. Kin's chapters concerning Solo 1 and 2 (Advanced Levels One and Two).
Chapter Five:
The Solo Levels.

In this text I'm generally using the term "Solo Levels" to replace the old "OT
Occasionally, though, I'm going to say "OT 1-3" when I mean the actual
written materials.
Yet when I'm referring to the auditing actions suggested by me,
I'll say "Solo Levels".
The auditing actions I'm going to suggest may not coincide with what's
done elsewhere, by other C/Ses. My background on this is first St. Hill UK and
then Bill Robertson.
The term "OT Level" is actually quite well-chosen in that "OT" refers to the
telepathic aspect of Solo-auditing, to actions one does as a Thetan and not by
means of a body.
Since one becomes increasingly aware of oneself operating as a Thetan (both
in and out of session) as one moves up these Levels, they are rightfully called
OT Levels. But in order to emphasize that the procedures described in this text
are my personal way of going about it and don't purport to follow anyone's
idea of "standard tech", and since the exaggerated claims by the Church of
Scientology's propaganda machine have distorted the word OT beyond
recognition, I personally prefer the rather modest term Solo Level.
Each of the Solo Levels 1 to 3 consist of an instruction and an auditing action.
The instruction refers to the Bank segments to be audited and how to audit
them. They should be studied in the handwriting of Ron Hubbard (at least
those of OT 1 and 3. I have never seen the C.C. and OT 2 in Ron's own hand).
This is the traditional way of studying OT 1-3 so as to guarantee the
authenticity of the materials.
Unfortunately these materials are not on sale in your local bookstore. But
there are ways of getting them. (The handwritten materials of OT 3 were
quoted in their entirety in the "Pied Pipers", LK3/ch. 3.)
The steps above Solo 3 don't require any materials beyond what's covered in
this book.


Solo 1 - 3 deal specifically with the Earth case, the sort of case that's typical
for down here. Because it is planet Earth that took the brunt of Incident II, 75
million years ago. So anyone walking about on this planet is liable to get
spiritually contaminated without his knowing, something that wouldn't
happen to him quite to that extent on any of the 76 other planets involved.
When you audit people originating from places like Aldebaran, Sirius or
Arcturus you get an idea of what life on planet Earth might have been like
before it got hit, and what it will be like once it's been restored to normal
operation. Although Incident II involved 76 planets around 21 stars, it seems
that life in those places wasn't quite as severely affected as down here. Of
course, they do suffer from the particular aspects of Inc. II indigenous to their
planets (and of the cross-restimulation they receive from their Earth-trapped
ridges), but that's nothing compared to here. Also they have bodies and GE
aberrations, and then they have their Incident I which every Thetan in this
particular universe has in one form or another.
For most Thetans Inc. I served as an entry ticket to Xenu's game (for the fun
of it); whereas for a few it was a serious issue and their reason for coming to
this universe in the first place (referring to the more involved pro-Xenu and
contra-Xenu guys).
Having a body, a GE and a Xenu connection through Inc. I, are features
shared by all Beings who physically live on planets.
Those that never incarnated but stayed aloft, still have an Inc. I problem.
They are extremely easy to audit, though. Occasionally one bumps into one of
them as one follows up a particular line of interest on the Meter. All they need
is receiving an R-Factor on the matter ("Xenu's game over" etc.) and being
asked a few questions pertaining to their personal first involvement with Xenu,
and - whoosh! - there blow the connecting theta quanta.
They just never thought about the matter in terms of having become other-determined.
It never bothered them sufficiently as to notice it.
Freeing Beings in this fashion is of extreme importance not only for their
personal well-being but even more so in terms of universal politics (which is
one step up from galactic politics). Because anyone who has recognized his
Xenu-connection is not in Xenu's valence any longer and can make decisions
which are not part of Xenu's scheme, i.e. decisions which won't contribute to.72
further condensing theta quanta by gravitational pull, eventually turning
everything into solid rock.
Anyone not in Xenu's valence will evaluate things differently. In fact, strictly
speaking he isn't even part of this universe any more! He will be in touch with
other universes existing parallel to this one. All of which would help getting
this one sorted out.
The experiment has lasted long enough, after all.

Hubbard A Fruitcake?

It has been said that the materials of OT 1-3 reflected Ron Hubbard's own
case, were a dramatization of his personal past, were sloppily researched, and
so on. Be that as it may. As a C/S I don't expect anyone to "believe" these data.
I dont want people to believe them! I just want these data to be duplicated,
understood, and used in session. With all due skepticism.
Each time I put someone on Solo 1-3 I can't believe that he gets reads,
pictures and all the rest of it! It's a surprise each and every time.
So do they get their reads on a fantasy movie they have mocked up in their
mind? Perhaps they do. But even then it would be well worth flattening the
Button that was hit, because somehow it resolves real charge and very positive
changes result from it, "true" or not.
Any reading Item must be taken to an F/N, irrespective of all possible
interpretations. That's the long and short of auditing. So whether you consider
Solo 1-3 fact or fiction, there is no way around running it when it reads on you.

Mystical Traditions

Anyone who understands traditional esoterics will immediately see that OT
2 and 3 are an initiation of the highest calibre. To sell these Levels on the front
counter at throw-away prices doesn't do them justice.
Look for example at Mozart's opera "The Magic Flute". It contains an exact
description of a top notch Freemason initiation. And with that it relates back to
the ancient Isis cult. In either case it is expected of a person that he should be
courageous enough to expose himself to terrifying scenes play-acted especially
for him by prior arrangement, such as being alone inside a tomb with skulls
rattling about, that he (more importantly) should be able to stand up to the
pictures thereby restimulated in his mind, and that he (most importantly)
should come out with the recognition of the spirit Being stronger than mest and
of spiritual survival being tied up with sticking to one's guns and not violate
one's honor and integrity..73
And what does one find in the "Magic Flute" if not the very archetypes all
initiations deal with, namely Xenu and Yatrus! Mozart represents them as the
Queen of the Night (Xenu) who has to surrender her realm and power to
Sarastro (Yatrus). It's almost like Mozart had read "The Pied Pipers" before
composing his opera! (The Freemasons of his day didn't particularly like
Mozart's revelations. Too close to the truth. Mozart was killed soon after the
"Magic Flute" was put on stage in 1791.)
To evaluate Hubbard's work fairly, it has to be understood in this context.
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
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
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.75
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
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!


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
debris. 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 Thetans.
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
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
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 with a
blank sheet of paper, pull the sheet down a bit, read the first line, give it to
"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 perfectly
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 beside
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 different.
No matter how bizarre the story may sound: if it reads it's run. That's the duty
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
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.

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.80
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
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.
Name of Student:
Commencement of Course:

Note: It is recommended that this course be studied with the personal
guidance of an experienced Course Supervisor who has successfully completed
Solo 3 or perhaps even Excalibur!

Solo 2 consists of auditing the Clearing Course Implants and then the OT 2
Implants. So for those who never ran the Clearing Course materials before,
auditing them would be the first step on Solo 2. (There'll be a demo to explain
the reason for this action.) The second step on Solo 2, the actual "OT 2"
Implants, can only be run successfully if the Clearing Course materials have
been drained of all charge beforehand.
1. Read the course materials provided by the Course Supervisor.
2. Study them thoroughly (using study tech).

Solo 2 Theory

1. Demo the "spotting of a Thetan". ("Light/spot Thetan" would mean: where is
the light from the viewpoint of the Thetan? Or: where is the Thetan with
reference to the light?)
2. Checkout: What is the purpose of the light? (Hint: it attracts attention.)
3. Checkout: Explain why one should only reveal one line of the Platens at a
4. Demo:
a. How a GPM is implanted.
b. The state of the Thetan as a result of this with the GPM dormant.
c. Show what happens when the GPM is restimulated.
5. Theory: What's the mark of a successful Implant?
6. Clay demo: Show how the CC Implant leads to a composite case. This clay
demo is done as a moving model in the following stages:
a. Put the structure of the CC Implant on the clay table. It consists of 5
sections in sequence. (It's sufficient to do this in a crude and sketchy
b. Move a dozen clay Thetans through the Implants as if on a conveyor belt,
and then send them back to the beginning - 10 times over. Show how
when they come off after the 10th time, they are all clumped together.
They all have the same experience now and to that extent, much as they
are still individuals, they are tied up with each other.
c. Make a long strip of clay and put it on the clay table to symbolize the
time span between 1 1/2 quadrillion years and 75 million years ago. Put
the same CC structure at 75 million years ago as at 1 1/2 quad.
d. Now show how at this repetition of the CC, whole groups of "Thetans"
receive the Implant. Move a dozen groups of Thetans 10 times through
the 5 sections of the CC, and then 10 times through the sections of the OT
2 Implant. See what happens as they come out the other end. (This demo
may be hard to confront! The supervisor's help may be required.)
7. Demo: The EP of Solo 2, showing that if each individual Thetan is given the
chance to run his own incident, the "clumped-up" mass of them will break
up and separate.
8. Admin drill: Demo the admin procedures required for running the CC and
OT 2 Platens (using "green apple" GPMs) to show that one can follow the
9. Read the C/S earlier in this book and go in session.
When running the process, do not run Items as your own unless it feels like
the correct action. It is best to run the Items as "anyone's" (including your own
if that feels the right thing to do). Bear in mind that you are running and
cracking yourself out of a composite case.
