HCO BULLETIN OF 23 AUGUST 19681
Any arbitrary entered into any line is a way to stop that line.
An auditor doing a job of auditing suddenly enters an arbitrary such as “The pc now has a grief charge so he must have a withhold as I’ve just cleaned up ARC breaks.” Or any such wild think. This arbitrary would stop that pc’s case right now.
You get all there is to know about tech from HCOBs, tapes, books.
This is all.
Here’s one—when the needle on an E-Meter read in response to an auditor’s question, all you know is that the needle on the E-Meter read. That’s all you know. Now in the next few seconds you will prove out, as to whether the read was to the question or to something else like a protest. To assume anything else in regard to meter reads is an arbitrary and will close up that pc with a bang.
That’s the data. Knock off all the arbitraries NOW.
Punch in hard standard tech. Standard tech is that tech which has absolutely no arbitraries.
