*We published an article entitled NOTS off the tracks, a few months ago, with specifics of out-tech on NOTs delivered within the Corporate Church. This new article follows on from that article. Please note, there is no confidential OT material in this article. The purpose of this article is to detail the source of the NOTs technology, as there seems to be confusions that some have regarding it. Milestone Two Administrator

In the policy letter introducing the Data Series, The Anatomy of Thought, Ron Hubbard states:
“A BASIC LAW is usually confused by students with an INCIDENTAL FACT. This is conceiving a similarity when one, the law, is so far senior to the fact that one could throw the fact away and be no poorer.
“When a student or an employee cannot USE a subject he studies or cannot seem to understand a situation his disability is that basics are conceived by him to be merely similar to incidental remarks.”
This observation applies to the technical materials that comprise New Era Dianetics for OTs.
The history and record of research that led to NOTs begins at the beginning of the research that led to Dianetics and continues on with the development of that subject, and the research and development of Scientology.
An example of that research line is a tape from 16 April 1952, Anatomy of the Theta Body. Much of that research is given a synopsis in History of Man:
“These incidents are responsible for the preclear being “softened- up” to a point where he can be influenced by having a hypnotized soul thrown at him. You will find the marks of these souls on every preclear. They are the basics on demon circuits.”
“Considerable time was spent on entities in these investigations. There was a great deal of data about them yet to learn when they were by-passed in the discovery of direct methods of auditing the thetan who, after all, IS the preclear.”
And this comment is made at that time:
“These questions are at this time not answered satisfactorily: Are entities sub-beings or are they simply electronic installations? Are they very decadent thetans who have been blanketed by the preclear? Have they simply decayed until they follow the GE line? Are they control factors from “between-lives”?
The continuing line of research, up through the ACCs throughout the 50s, includes considerable work on the topic of “valences”.
In 1978, L. Ron Hubbard developed NED for OTs.
This, as any serious student of the subject of Scientology is aware, is the culmination of decades of study and application of the principles that form the actual basics of NOTs, the Axioms.
The case, the techniques and the fundamentals of NOTs, expressed by L. Ron Hubbard, and recorded on tape, were then transcribed and compiled into Bulletin format by David Mayo, working with Melanie Murray.
These compilations were then presented to L. Ron Hubbard for approval and following various acceptances and rejects and corrections, were finally approved by LRH in 1978 (the bulk of them), for publication as the NOTs Series.
Subsequently, up through 1980 the rest followed that same line: LRH originated, Mayo transcribed and compiled, and LRH approved.
This is the actual NOTs Series of issues, and the only ones ever seen and approved by L. Ron Hubbard.
They are THE NOTs tech.
Issues published since that time, by RTC in the form of Inspector General Network Bulletins, are not Source, and were not seen or approved by LRH.
NOTs tech was complete as issued by LRH, and works now as well as it did then – if used and applied — but unfortunately NOTs and SOLO NOTs auditors within Corporate Scientology today, do not study the Source NOTs issues, nor have them available. Luckily, we have the Source issues available in the field, and standard delivery is occurring.
