A HANDY DANDY UNOFFICIAL
SCIENTOLOGY AND DIANETICS GLOSSARY OF TERMS!
L. Ron Hubbard's Scientology books usually have something like this in
the beginning of the book:
"The only reason a person gives up a study or becomes confused or
unable to learn is because he or she has gone past a word that was not
understood.Therefore, in studying Scientology, be very, very certain
you never go past a word you do not fully understand. If the material
becomes confusing or you can't seem to grasp it, there will be a word
just earlier that you have not understood. Don't go any further, but go
back to BEFORE you got into trouble, find the misunderstood word or
phrase and get it defined."
Scientology has a vocabulary all it's
own. According to Management Technology Terms Defined by L. Ron
Hubbard, there are 6,600 made up words and terms alone!
Dianetics/Scientology has many terms and abbreviations that are totally
confusing to us "wogs" (i.e., a non-Scientologist...see what we mean?),
therefore you may want to browse the definition of these words before
you begin. Hey, you wouldn't want to dissapoint L. Ron, would you???
This list is intended to facilitate the
reading and interpretation of the Scientology Papers by translating
acronyms and abbreviations that are frequently used but rarely defined
(even in the Administrative Dictionary).
* 1.1 - Pronounced "one one". Means that
someone is "covertly hostile" - they smile to your face, but will stab
you in the back. Hubbard said that homosexuals and psychiatrists are
* 2D - The second Dynamic. In
Scientology, the second dynamic refers to family, children, personal
relationships and sex. Can be used in a variety of ways, including:
"She was my 2D" means "I was dating her". "Going out-2D" means cheating
on your partner, or committing "deviant" sexual acts. "I need to handle
my 2D" can, depending on context, mean "I need to fix my relationship
with my partner/spouse" or "I need to find a boy/girlfriend".
* 2WC, two-way comm, two-way
communication - Talking between an auditor and a PC or a supervisor and
a student. Also TWC, Two-Way Comm. "Use 2WC on the PC to a win."
* 3D - The third Dynamic. Refers to
groups one is a part of. This can mean work, school, a sports team, a
wine tasting club, or anything else of that nature.
* 4D - The forth Dynamic. Means
* Aberration - An instance of insanity.
Also, another term for an engram, psychoses, neuroses, compulsions and
repressions of all kinds and classificationsor a hidden memory of pain
* Aberee: any
* ABLE - Association for Better Living
and Education. One of many Scientology front-groups.
* Ack/Acknowledgement - Used to end a
cycle of communication in Hubbard's communication theory. Usually a
"good", "ok", "I got that", or "thank you."
* AD - After Dianetics. Used on issues
such as HCOBs and HCOPLs (Hubbard Communication Office Bulletins and
Policy Letters) to show the year. It is based on the Christian
calendar, but with a base year of 1950 with the release of Hubbard's
book "Dianetics"; thus AD 15 = Anno Domini 1965.
* Analytical Mind - The
Dianetics/Scientology definition of the Concious Mind.
* Anonymous - The name of an
anti-Scientology group comprised mostly of computer hackers.
* ARC Break - An ARC Break refers to
sadness, upset, or anger resulting from an argument or negative
situation. "You haven't spoken to Bob in days. Did you two have an ARC
* ASI - Author Services International:
Scientology's personal publishing house.
* Auditing - What Scientologists call
counseling. An E-meter is often but not always used. On the lower
levels, an auditor guides the PC (pre-clear) through various questions
supposedly designed to elicit a certain result. On the higher levels of
Scientology, a person will audit themself (known as solo-auditing) by
mentally asking themself questions and using the E-meter to find the
right answer. Auditing seems to be a mild form of hypnosis. Some people
are more suseptible to hypnosis than others, and over time the more a
person is hypnotized, the easier it becomes to hypnotize them. People
are capable of being brainwahsed through hypnosis, and also can have
hallucinations, such as having lived as an alien millions of years ago
in a past life.
* BC (also SHSBC) - Briefing Course
(also St. Hill Special Briefing Course). One of the longest courses (if
not the longest) in Scientology.
* Black PR - To slander someone in the
media or online in order to discredit their statements. Can be used as
noun or verb.
* Blow - To blow means "to leave without
permission" or "to leave before something is completed". One can "blow
staff", "blow course", "blow session", or "blow the org". It is a very,
very serious offence in Scientology to blow. People who leave without
permission in this way are usually "declared" (See Declared). Depending
on context, "blow" can also have a positive meaning. It can mean 'to go
away', eg. "My pain just blew!"
* Blowing Your Case - Making it
impossible to be audited is known as "blowing your case". For instance,
if a Scientologist who has not yet reached OT III finds out
accidentally the Church of Scientology teaches that Xenu killed
millions of aliens 75 million years ago creating "Body Thetans" (ghosts
of aliens) that infest millions of people, they may have made
themselves ineligble to be audited by learning this too soon, thus they
have "blown their case".
* Blown Out - Excited, happy, thrilled.
Having a feeling of being so happy that one is elated and feels
disconnected from their body. "I just finished a course and I'm so
* Body Thetan - Basically alien ghosts
that infest human beings and cause them all kinds of problems. Only
Scientology can remove them.
* Book One - Dianetics: The Modern
Science of Mental Health
* Bridge, The - Shortened from "The
Bridge to Total Freedom". All of Scientology doctrines put together are
referred to as "the Bridge". If one is progressing through their
Scientology studies and sessions, they are "going up the Bridge."
* Bridge (2) - Short for "Bridge
Publications", a Scientology operated enterprise.
* Bull Baiting Session - A proceedure
that takes place days before auditing can begin where the Pre-Clear
must endure hours of taunting, insults, and yelling by the auditor and
not show any emotion, but sit quietly instead. As a by-product, it is
also believed to be a source of Scientology brainwashing.
* Cadet Org - The Sea Org for children,

successes in Scientology, making progress.
* Clear - A person who has removed all
their "engrams" is said to be a "clear".

Evidence. This is the Scientology version of a trial. During a Comm Ev,
the accused is required to sit before a panel of Sea Org members who
evaluate their "crimes". If you are accused of misdeeds and ordered to
stand before such a panel, you are said to be "Comm Ev'd"
* Conditions, to do conditions - A set
of formulas to be applied to one's life depending on the state of one's
life. For instance, if you are doing exceptionally well, you would
apply the steps outlined the condition of "affluence". If you have done
something bad, the org may require you to do a "treason" condition. The
various conditions, from worst to best, are: Confusion, Treason, Enemy,
Doubt, Liability, Non-Existence, Danger, Emergency, Normal, Affluence,
Power Change and Power. There are specific formulas for each of these
conditions. Lower conditions (those below "normal") are frequently used
* Counter-Intention (or CI) - Having or
acting as if one has a purpose that is contrary to the purpose of the
group. Often used to refer to malicious or stubborn refusal to do as

for auditor mistakes. It can be used as a verb and a noun: "My files
were sent to the C/S." or "I was up all night C/Sing."

"S" replaced with a "$". A slang term you may come across on the
Internet used by defectors and those opposed to the Church.

complete title is Dianetics: The Modern Science of Mental Health
subtitled A Handbook of Dianetic Proceedure.
* Dianetics(2) - The
procedures mentioned in the book Dianetics: The Modern Science of
Mental Health. The forerunner of Scientology. Basically, Dianetics says
supressed memories, including prenatal memories (an impossibility) are
the cause of all of humankind's problems. Dianetics involves a process
that seems to be not much more than talking about one's troubles and
hypnosis. After L. Ron Hubbard got in trouble with the FDA and IRS, he
created the "Church of Scientology" which is really just Dianetics with
reincarnation thrown in
* Dead Agent - A verb, meaning to
slander a person or dissprove a piece of information to such an extent

the Manson Family was said to have had such a degree...probably one
reason they're no longer given out.
* Downstat - A person who does not
produce enough, or a state of not working hard enough. "She's such a

things can be said to be "entheta".
* E/O (or EO) - Ethics Officer.
Responsible for the "crime and punishment" division of any given church.

telling family members you were being forced to work 18 hours a day for
$30 a week is a serious Ethics Violation.
* Exteriorize - Astral
Projection; to have the soul seperate from the body at will.
* External Influence - A term used to
describe anything which might influence a Scientologist, such as
newspapers, television, the Internet, letters or phone calls from
family and friends, etc., External Influences are considered bad
things, so phone calls and mail are monitored by staff members.
* Fair Game - A policy outlined by L.
Ron Hubbard in 1968. When a person is seen to be a threat to
Scientology, they may be declared "Fair Game". COS is then to use any
and all methods (slander, frame up, physical harm, etc.) of scilencing
that person for good, according to Hubbard. The following year, Hubbard
said to discontinue using the term openly because of the bad publicity
it generated, but the policy still remains in place. Paulette
Cooper was one such person declared "Fair Game". See "Operation PC
* Flap - A major problem or serious
incident. "There was a huge flap at the org."
* F/N - Floating Needle

church's investigation branch until the FBI caught them doing some
nasty stuff. They were disbanded, and replaced by OSA. See also: OSA
* Good Roads, Good Weather - Keeping all
information to outsiders positive and not giving out any information
which might put Co$ in a bad light. For instance, members of
Golden Era Productions would not tell relatives "I'm being forced to
work 18 hours a day for $30 a week", they would instead say "I love it
here! Everyone is so nice, and I'm learning a lot!".
* Goldenrod - It is Scientology policy
that all SP Declare orders are printed on a piece of goldenrod colored
paper. In Scientology, only ethics orders are printed on paper this
color, so an SP Declare (see Declared), which is the most infamous kind
of ethics order, is often referred to as "a goldenrod".
* Golden Era Productions - The media
production company of Scientology that makes films, videos, and TV
commercials. Defectors that worked at Golden Era tell stories of being
forced to work 18 hour days for $30 a week, and horrible living
conditions. The Church of Scientology responded to such charges that
the Golden Era members were like "monks" who had taken vows of poverty,
thus circumventing the law by abusing Freedom of Religion once again.
* Hobby Horsing - Doing things in one's spare time
that aren't Scientology related, i.e., watching TV, reading books in a
library, going to a movie, etc., Hobby Horsing is frowned upon.

Communications Office Bulletin or Hubbard Communications Office Policy
Letter. A piece of writing issued by Hubbard. A lot of Hubbard's
writings and texts are referenced like this: HCO PL 10 October 1965.
* KSW - Stands for Keeping Scientology
Working. This is a policy letter (text) that is required reading
material in almost every Scientology course, to be read each time
someone starts a new course. Critics interpret this policy letter as a
bigoted outline of how Scientology plans to destroy other belief
systems. Scientologists interpret this policy letter as Hubbard's
directions for the continued prosperity of Scientology.
* Manson, Charles - Career criminal who
joined the Church of Scientology while incarcerated in the 1950's and
later became infamous for the Tate-LaBianca murders carried out by his
hippie cult (known as "The Family") under his command. Manson claimed
he reached the level of "Theta Clear" while in Scientology. It is
believed by many that Manson learned the techniques of mind control and
brainwashing while invovled in Scientology that he later used in the
Manson Family. Manson was also involved in a COS splinter group called
"The Process Church of The Final Judgment". Manson was a white
supremacist who, over the years, has been linked directly or indirectly
to the murders of over 100 individuals. Critics
have speculated that Manson may have been used by COS to silence people
who posed a threat to Scientology, but this has never been proven.
* Mark VII Quantum - The latest model of
E-Meter produced and sold by the Church of Scientology, retailing at
almost $5,000, but probably not costing more than $100 to produce by
some estimates. Only members of the Church of Scientology are sold
E-Meters, but many used ones turn up on Ebay and Craig's List, and some
even turn up in yard sales and thrift stores. See "E-Meter".
* MEST - Matter, Energy, Space and Time.
The physical universe.
* MEST Work - Manual labor.
* Narcanon - The drug rehab program of
Scientology, said to have a very high failure rate.

Scientologists of the highest levels are told that they will go to New
Arcturus when they die to be with L. Ron Hubbard.
* Non-Enturbulation Order - An order
issued to you if you are very close to being thrown out. The order
basically warns you that if you upset anyone else, or if the ethics
officer receives any bad reports about you, you will be in serious
* Off Purpose - Same as Hobby Horsing. Doing
something non-Scientology related, i.e., watching TV, reading
non-Scientology books, going to the movies, etc.,
* Operation PC Freakout - After Paulette Cooper, a defector from
Scientology, wrote a tell all book, the Church of Scientology
started a slander campaign that almost drove her to suicide. The code
name for this operation was named "Operation PC Freakout". Fortunately
the plot was uncovered.
* Operation Snow
White - A plot carried out by the Church of Scientology during the
1970's to infiltrate the IRS and destroy any and all incrminatiing
evidence against the Church. Eventually the plot was discovered by the
authorities, and several members of COS, including Hubbard's third wife
Mary Sue, went to prison. Hubbard lived hiding the rest of his life
after this incident.
* Org - Short for "orginization". A
Scientology church. Some of the more famous orgs have their own names
(see below), while local orgs are referred to as "[City] org", eg.
* OSA - Office of Special Affairs.
Pronounced "Oh-sah". Often referred to by critics as Scientology's
Secret Service. They are the intellignece gathering, lawsuit,
public relations, and dirty tricks branch of Scientology according to
ex-Scientologists. If someone in the Sea Org or Golden Era wanted to
take a leave of absence, they would first have to ask the OSA.
* OT - Stands for Operating Thetan. This
is someone who, according to Scientology, has attained a high spiritual
level. There are currently 8 OT levels. One begins the OT levels after
attaining the state of Clear. An OT is supposed to be able to control
Matter, Energy, Space and Time. Yeah, right.
* Out Ruds - A state of being tired,
hungry or upset. Hubbard states that someone tired, hungry or upset
cannot be properly audited, and that 'out ruds' must be dealt with
before someone goes in session.

you're not supposed to be doing, such as Hobby Horsing or being Off
* Overt - A sin or crime.
* O/Ws - Overts and Withholds, which
essentially means sins and secrets.

Scientologists believe is "standard" Hubbard doctrine.

* PC - Pre-clear. The person receiving
auditing who is not yet reached "clear".
* Pink Sheet - When a course supervisor
finds that some student does not fully understand materials he studied
earlier, the supervisor will write a 'pink sheet' for the student. The
pink sheet contains orders to re-study that section of the materials,
and lists which materials are to be re-studied before continuing on. It
is called a pink sheet because it is only issued on pink paper.
* Potential Trouble Source (or PTS) -
Someone who is connected to a Suppressive Person (SP). According to
Scientology a PTS will often be sick (in fact, they believe that
PTSness is the only reason anyone gets sick), have emotional ups and
downs, and not be able to get very far in life.
* Psychosomatic Illness - An
illness which is not real but imagined to be real.
Dianetics/Scientology puts a lot of stock into the psychosomatic
illness theory to the point that it is taught practically all illnesses
are psychosomatic, and thus Dianetics/Scientology auditing becomes the
cure-all for every disease (only it isn't).
* PTP - Present Time Problem
* PTS - abv. for "Potential Trouble
* PTS/SP (course) - A major Scientology
course in which one's learns Hubbard's thoughts on evil people, and how
to deal with them, and what happens when one is connected to an evil
person. See also: Potential Trouble Source, Suppressive Person.
* Purification Rundown - A process of
"detoxification" in which Scientologists give up all
perscription and over the counter drugs, take large amounts
of vitamins and minerals, and subject themselves to hours of saunas.
* R2-45 - According to L. Ron Hubbard in
his book The Creation of Human Ability, it is a way to effectively
exteriorize but is not approved by society at this time. R2-45 means to
shoot someone in the head with a .45 calibre handgun. It's uncertain if
Hubbard was joking when he wrote this, and according to
ex-Scientologists, he wasn't.
* Raw Meat - Someone who just joined
Scientology, or is thinking about joining Scientology. This is commonly
used among the staff and Sea Org members, but not really among the
* RD - Run Down
* Reactive Mind - The Dianetics
equivalent to the Subconcious Mind. If a person is knocked unconcious,
the Reactive Mind kicks in and records every thing going on at the time
of the accident, creating "Engrams".
* Rehabilitation Project Force
(RPF) - When a Sea Org member has done something considered
particularly bad, they are isolated from the rest of the Sea Org
members in the RPF program. People on the RPF are not allowed to walk
(they run everywhere), are not allowed to speak to another Sea Org
member unless spoken to, and spend most of their time doing manual
labor. This is a very controversial program. Scientologists call it
"rehabilitation", critics call it "slave labor". According to one
Russian defector from Scientology who was stationed at the Sea Org in
Clearwater, if a person had a choice between regular prison or RPF,
they would chose prison. Some people have been known to remain 10 years
or more in RPF.
* Reg - Registrar. Someone responsible
for raising money for the org. Can also be used as a verb, eg. "She was
* RPF - See Rehabilitation Project

* Sea Org (or SO) - The inner core of
Scientology. Sea Org members run and operate the churches, raise money,
give auditing, and perform any number of other tasks. They sign a 1
billion year contract, promising to return and serve in their next life
(no kidding). The Sea Org began in 1967 when Hubbard bought three ocean
liners and took to international waters along with a few hundred loyal
followers to avoid the authorities.
* Sec Check - Security check. A
confessional given while on the e-meter. Sec checks can take anywhere
from three weeks to a year or longer. The E-Meter's function as a lie
detector becomes much more obvious in Sec Checks.
* Senior - Boss. As in, "I have to get
this paperwork checked by my senior."
* Session - An auditing session. See
* Squirrels - A term coined by
Hubbard to denote people who corrupt the Scientology "technology".
Using procedures to audit people deviating from the official manuals is
known as "squirreling the tech". Freezone groups, est, Eckankar, and
Sylva Mind Control Method are all considered to be "Squirell Groups",
because the founders of those groups were members of Scientology who
followed LRH's advice and started their own religions to make millions.
* Sup - (pronounced 'soop') Short for
supervisor. Someone who oversees the course students and course room at
* Stats - Statistics. Most Scientology
staff members, Sea Org members, business persons and school children
keep statistics of their work and progress in order to measure their

person. If someone is found to be an SP by the Church, they are
"Declared", meaning they cannot have any contact with any Scientologist
* TA - Tone Arm; part of the E-Meter
* Teegeac - What the Earth was called 75
million years ago.
* Thetan - A spirit
* Treas Sec - Treasury Secretary.

other with their eyes closed with the purpose of learning to "be there
comfortably", and TR0 Bullbait, wherein one student must sit perfectly
still while another yells, screams, tells jokes, or in any other way
tries to get him/her to react. See also: Out-TRs
* Twin - A course partner. Twins study
everything on any particular course together, and help each other
through the course. You can also say you are "twinning" with someone.
* TWTH - The Way To Happiness. A very
basic pamphlet containing 21 moral "precepts". Anyone who knows basic
hygiene and has been to Sunday School as a kid has more or less already
learned all these precepts.
* Type III - Insane, crazy, criminal.
* Upstat - A person who consistently
works very hard and gets good results. "She's such a upstat." or "If
we're upstat this week, we'll get Sunday off." See also: stats, downstat
* Verbal Tech - Talking about
Scientology doctrine, debating about Scientology doctrine, or
discussing Scientology doctrine without physically referencing the
applicable text. Hubbard was very cautious about people altering his
writings from their original form, and so he forbade anyone from
discussing the intricacies of Scientology without actually pulling out
the appropriate book and referencing the doctrine directly. It is a
high crime in Scientology to spread verbal tech.
* VGI - Very Good Indicator
* WISE - A group of
Scientology business executives that seek to further the aims of
Scientology, which include destroying organized psychiatry.
* Withhold - A secret, something bad
that you haven't told anyone about.
* Wog - "Worthy Oriental Gentleman" - -A
derogatory term meaning "non-scientologist".
* Xenu (also spelled Xemu) -
The Devil of Scientology. According to L. Ron Hubbard, Xenu was an evil
alien emperor of a federation of planets who lived about 75 million
years ago. Xenu killed billions of aliens and brainwashed their ghosts,
which now infest human beings and are called "Body Thetans". Xenu and
his evil henchmen were eventually captured and placed in an eletric
cage inside a mountain on another planet. The cage is powerd
by an eternal battery that lasts 75 million years, so apprently members
of Xenu's race can live a very long time. Scientologists below OT III
are not told of the Xenu material, and Scientologists OT III and above
are warned not to discuss it wth outsiders. (Screwy, ain't it? ). Even
though officials from the Co$ have public denied LRH's Xenu
material, but tapes by LRH talking in depth about Xenu have been leaked
onto the Internet.
If you're a Church of Scientology member reading this, I realize your
church forbids you to read websites like this, but please ask yourself
IS SCIENTOLOGY A RELIGION?
Not according to ex-members!

"The preponderance of the evidence
indicates that the religion claim is merely a tax-evasion ruse and a
fig leaf for a hugely profitable enterprise, where the logic of
profitability and profit-making dictates all actions. Scientology is in
reality a holding company, a business empire earning profits from a
variety of subsidiaries. It is guided by considerations of economic
consequences and benefits, a strict business strategy."
