“Well, that is what is batty about it. It does not compute, does not equate and that the identification of A=A=A does not form any logical sequence along which a thetan can travel.” LRH, SKULL GAZING, 9 November 1956.
A Reactive Mind is an analogy L. Ron Hubbard used in the Original Thesis of Dianetics to describe the hidden source of human aberration (unwanted fears, upsets, repressions, obsessions and goofinesses of all types and categories).
By definition it is an unknown, and that’s why it’s a good idea to have an auditor and a preclear in session, since to the preclear the source of his aberration is unknown, and is hidden, else it wouldn’t have escaped his Analytical attention, and by that no longer be a hidden aberration.
The principle is almost too simple and so simple in fact, it has escaped notice: if you know what your aberration is, that isn’t what your aberration is. Aberration is aberrated, that is, a “non-straight line” – from the Analytical mind (the being themselves as an awareness of awareness).
The relationship of auditor and person being audited is a group endeavor, to aid that person getting auditing to uncover things they don’t know. It is the not-known that makes for departures from the ideal. If the person themselves knew all about what was ailing them, and especially as to its source, then it would by that knowing, cease to ail them. It would “as-is”.
So, the adventure of the Bridge is one of discovery. This includes the discovery that is involved in learning how life goes together, how it works and including how the hidden source of human aberration itself is uncovered, and no longer hidden and no longer aberrating.
I have found, and continue to find in training and auditing others and in my own training and auditing even now at the Solo NED for OTs Level, that those things that are unknown, that are things I didn’t suspect, that are not logically connected, that I am not aware of, those things are the ones that really do change the conditions once exposed and brought to the light of awareness.
