On a prior post, someone had mentioned in the comments about a third rail of The Bridge. Though he was incorrect about the content – he was referring to administration & management which is nowhere on the actual Bridge, just under additional services under training and also relates separately to the admin scale & 3D tech – he WAS correct about there being a third part to the bridge.
In my view, that often overlooked third rail found in the center is called the awareness scale.
My auditor recently me more aware of this area (yes, I am aware of the irony that I was unaware of the awareness scale) prior to a recent session. The scale can also be found in the book Scientology 8-0.
When I asked him how to test or measure where one’s awareness level falls, the answer that I got was that one’s emotional tone roughly parallels their awareness levels. Yet there does not seem to be a direct test of awareness levels, unlike the emotional tone scale as covered in detail in both Science of Survival and Self-Analysis.
The best that one can see where they are in terms of awareness is according to their level on The Bridge – and even this is not entirely clear; does one attain that level of awareness from their training? With auditing? Or only once they have done both? According to LRH in the SHSBC, it seems to relate to auditing but also training in regards to mimicry.
According to The Bridge, presumably one does not seek any auditing nor training at least until they are at awareness level -4 aptly known as “need of change”. Like the tone scale, one is aware of lower levels of reality, but can barely picture more than 1 or 2 above their current state. Actually, LRH says that one cannot experience anything above their level.
A key phrase in SHSBC lecture 422 is “Awareness is always a matter of an increasing perimeter.” Considering that Source is at the top of the Bridge, one’s perimeter might extend across the entire universe.
If I am completely being honest with myself, I would probably have to state that my attention is generally at -3 demand for improvement, not simply because of my training and auditing level, but also because I know I am working to improve my body/health, finances, career, country and the state of mental health. I could be doing better but I am at least working on it and I expect others to be doing the same.
But I am curious how one can actually test their awareness level as objectively as possible? Or for that level test others? Does what grab and hold one’s attention count? Or what they speak about? I am curious to know any references and clarification on the subject that is frequently overlooked.
