Three Kingdoms - Three Levels of Awareness
In January 1951 LRH published an article called "Dianometry - Your Ability and State of Mind". It
was a brilliant essay on observing man in a wider scope than just a case for Auditing. LRH hinted at the importance
of more than intelligence and ability to make men valuable to society.
Later in the article he goes into a discussion of three types of mind:
Class C: That mind which is aware. It neither adjusts to or attempts to adjust it's environment.
Class B: That mind which is aware it thinks. It adjusts to it's environment.
Class A: That mind which is aware it thinks and how it thinks. It adjusts to it's environment and adjusts it's environment to itself.
Class C is the mind of tribe hunting packs and ordinary members of the 1st Empire (but not necessarily it's leaders). Class B is in the same way the type of mind the ordinary member of the second Empire possesses. Finally Class A is the type of mind needed to form a third Empire on our planet. Auditing (or Live Meditation) and training is supposed to create in the able human being such a mind.
If you want to read more about what L. Ron Hubbard had to say on the subject I recommend you to get a copy of Tech Vol I and read page 68-83, it is quite interesting reading.
Man is different from other animals (meat bodies) in that he possesses a mind that can think analytically and has a language that he can use to communicate and increase ARC. Other animals are just meat bodies, while man because of his mind is a theta-being. A theta-being is defined as a thetan that has lost his certainty of his own beingness and instead identifies himself with some kind of identity (beingness). If the thetan still is aware enough to think and act on some kind of self determinism (even if only on the 1st dynamic) he is a theta-being. If he had no real self-determinism at all he has sunk down into lower levels (animal levels where he is controlled by his mind instead of by self determinism) and is simply a meat body or worse.
When theta-beings are organised into societies and cultures they can together be very powerful indeed. It is such powerful societies of organised theta-beings that have sucessfully trapped thetans (free beings) and thus reduced the amount of free beings in the universe. According to Hubbard the unorganised free beings are almost extinct today. (Tape lecture "The Free Being"). Obviously organised free beings (OTs) still exist and it is with their offer to give us a helping hand through the technology, that we have inherited from LRH, that we who lost freedom as thetans when we were trapped into meat bodies, now can gain such freedom again. But to stay free we have to learn a lesson that we so far have failed to learn. That lesson is that we have to belong to an organisation of free beings and support each other if we want to stay free. If we sucessfully apply the inherited technology (including learning to apply it to others) and grow in KRC with it, we can qualify ourselves for the organisation of free beings, that for some reason has decided that we deserve a helping hand.
The Road to Truth - A Way Out
Thetans trapped in meat-bodies or existing as theta-beings on this planet are being offered a road out of the trap. Those of us who have gone through the levels of the 1st and 2nd Empire and thus are today equipped with a working analytical mind are being offered further help to advance the development of our minds into OT-minds (KRC-minds).
The first step was to create some kind of civilisation (1st Empires). That has been accomplished and hundreds of millions of beings have successfully graduated from that programme. The second step was to evolve analytical minds en masse through 2nd Empire civilisations. That step has been succesfully started and today tens of millions of human beings (theta-beings) have successfully graduated from that programme. Each year many more are joining these ranks. It is to these theta-beings existing on this planet today that we should turn our attention and deliver live meditation (auditing) and training. As we do so we are creating beings who can erect a 3rd Empire civilisation (the thousand years Empire), that will end the current era on this planet (the buddhist era). The beings who graduated from the programme may then advance into the next level, which is to join the organisation of free beings (organised OTs), that exist outside of our civilisation and planet. The very organisation that is currently giving you the opportunity to get out of the trap you have been stuck in for so long.
You may call this "going to heaven", "entering the Bodhi-world" or whatever you want. It still means that you are going to start a new cycle of action for yourself in this universe. The reason you lost your self-respect and awareness (lost your identity of true self) is that you refused to learn to cooperate with other free beings. That is the basic aberration in yourself that you have to overcome, if you want to gain true freedom as a thetan.
You have to go through the lower ethics condition formulas as a being and "learn to know thyself". Treason: "Find out that you are!" or "exteriorise!" Enemy: "Find out who you really are!" - suggest you run the OT levels after having done the lower grades and trained as an Auditor. Doubt: Find out if you want to become a member of the organised free beings. Liability: Do your ammends, i.e. get trained and assist in the broad task of getting the famous "show on the road".
To live as a theta-being on our planet is not the worst experience you ever had. It can actually be quite fun and pleasant. To live as an organised free being is an unknown experience for those who have failed to do so in the past. The reason you are trapped here on this planet, is that you failed to belong to such an organisation. You have to realise that you need to get educated into a new kind of beingness to be able to join the ranks of such organised free beings. You get that training when you train yourself to become an auditor (or Meditor).
You do not need to understand all of this. Understanding (ARC) after all is not the highest level of the mind. KRC is higher. The KRC-mind (mind-level of the 3rd Kingdom) is far superior to the ARC-mind. As a matter of fact the ARC-mind needs to be directed by KRC or it will be trapped by the 180-degree vectors of the MEST-universe. (Reference Tape Lecture: "Flows - Reverse Vectors of"). Just look at the poor psychologist and how their ARC got them totally lost. The ARC-mind is incapable of understanding the KRC-mind. just as the CCH mind cannot grasp anything of the ARC mind. The step from ARC to KRC is much greater than the step from CCH to ARC. The ARC-mind has severe problems understanding the CCH-mind. Only the KRC-mind can understand and control lower levels of mind. (Perhaps explains why there was poor understanding of the CCHs, despite Ron having explained them very clearly in the 17th ACC. AAP.) Properly performed (C/Sed) auditing and training will direct the ARC-mind towards KRC and thus will start building a KRC-mind (OT-mind) in the theta-beings, that are being processed towards a higher level. Each time a process is run to it's end phenomena another brick has been added to the foundation of the 3rd Empire.
