The Prometheus Reports

On:  Advanced Auditing

A comparative study of five researchers works


Prometheus Reports

Between 1965 and 1983 the late Ron Hubbard (1911-1986) published a number of courses intended to rehabilitate extraordinary mental abilities and powers. He claimed that all human Beings basically have these abilities. 
The courses, put together, were the upper Levels of the so-called Bridge to Total Freedom™. Mr. Hubbard called the courses the Advanced Levels or Operating Thetan™ Levels (OT Levels).

In these Prometheus Reports we seek to sort out the content and controversy that surround these confidential and Advanced Levels. The Grades and  Levels covered are:

  • Power and Power Plus
  • Routine Six End-Words
  • Clearing Course
  • Sunshine RD™ (Sunrise RD)
  • Advanced Level One or OT I
  • Advanced Level Two or OT II
  • Advanced Level Three or OT III
  • Advanced Level Four or 
    Drug Rundown for OTs, OT IV.

The controversies are related to both scientific, ethical and legal aspects.

Ron Hubbard released a number of very different versions of some of these Levels. We seek to sort this out and compare them with other researchers findings. 

Legal Controversy
Ron Hubbard's line-up of Advanced Levels has been printed, according to court documents, in at least 25,000 copies and distributed. Yet, it was sought to be held confidential by the copyright holder, L. Ron Hubbard's Library, as "unpublished works".

The Hubbard Library was trying to take a rather odd legal position. They were on the one hand publishing and distributing the materials on a large scale but were at the same time trying to claim these materials were unpublished works or trade secrets. This led to a string of law suits in the USA and around the world. Here notoriously to a court case in Hague in the Netherlands, home of the court for international affairs.

The outcome of all this was the ruling of the Court in Hague. In their sentence of June 9, 1999 it was clearly determined that the materials did not have trade secret status nor the status of unpublished works, but had normal protection for published works under Dutch and international copyright laws (see Hague ruling and details in appendix, especially paragraph 13 of the ruling).

In other words, in these present reports we have to observe the normal academic rules concerning copyrights. We cannot bring the course materials in full. But we can bring fair use quotes and refer in detail to what the course materials state.

We are under copyright law allowed to bring exact procedures and processes as these explicitly cannot be protected under this law but have to be passed on as new knowledge to society. 

Note: Processes and procedures can only be protected under patent laws and only for a limited number of years. This is to make it financially attractive to do research and develop new technology. Under patent law protection it is possible to get a reasonable return on inventions. Inventions, processes and procedures cannot, even under the stricter patent laws, be held proprietary forever. When the patent runs out they are fair game. But no such patents have ever been sought or existed for the present materials.

We have done a comparison between Ron Hubbard's work and a number of other researchers in the field. We have been able to obtain the works of four other writers on the subject. We have met more cooperation when it comes to these authors' works.

They are: Jeff Filbert. Publication: 'Excalibur Revisited' (1982).
L. Kin. Publication: 'From the Bottom to the Top - The Way Out' (1992).
The Pilot. Publication: 'Super Scio' (1997-99).
Some of Captain Bill Robertson's works.

These four researchers have made their materials available on the Internet and in books and do not contest fair use quotes of extensive nature for this study.

Power and R6-EW

Power was first released in 1965 as Grade Five. Shortly after Power Plus was released as Grade Five A.
R6-EW is a Solo-auditing routine that can be done by advanced students to get to Clear.
The report covers the exact processes and research done by 4 researchers in this field.

Clearing Course

Mr. Hubbard's version was released in 1966. It is a Solo-auditing procedure leading to the state of Clear. Today this has mainly been replaced by other methods of bringing about the state of Clear. It is however still being used as an Alternative Route. The report covers 4 researchers' works.

Advanced Level One

This report covers different versions of Mr. Hubbard's OT I and also Filbert's and L. Kin's OT I. In addition it covers a RD called Sunshine RD™ from 1981, which is very similar and fits well in here. Due to trademark issues it's called the Sunrise Rundown in some materials.

Advanced Level Two

This report covers Mr. Hubbard's 'OT II'. It also covers interesting research by Jeff Filbert, The Pilot and L. Kin. 

Advanced Level Three

This report covers all serious  materials and research we have been able to find on the subject. The subject of AL III is also called 'The Wall of Fire'. By putting it all together this report may become a classic. Researchers covered are L. Kin, Jeff Filbert, The Pilot and, of course, Ron Hubbard. 

Advanced Level Four

This report covers handling of drugs, especially on an advanced level. The Level is also called the Pre-OT Drug Rundown.
