ANALYTICAL MIND, 1. the conscious aware mind which thinks, observes data, remembers it, and resolves problems. It would be essentially the conscious mind as opposed to the unconscious mind. In Dn and Scn the analytical mind is the one which is alert and aware and the reactive mind simply reacts without analysis. (LRH Def. Notes) 2. that mind which combines perceptions of the immediate environment, of the past (via pictures) and estimations of the future into conclusions which are based upon the realities of situations. The analytical mind combines the potential knowingness of the thetan with the conditions of his surroundings and brings him to independent conclusions. This mind could be said to consist of visual pictures either of the past or the physical universe, monitored by, and presided over, by the knowingness of a thetan. The keynote of the analytical mind is awareness, one knows what one is concluding and knows what he is doing. (FOT, pp. 57-58) 3. the awareness of awareness unit plus some evaluative circuit or circuits, or machinery to make the handling of the body possible. (Dn 55!, pp. 11-12) 4. that part of the being which perceives, when the individual is awake or in normal sleep (for sleep is not unconsciousness, and anything the individual has perceived while he was asleep is recorded in the standard memory banks and is relatively easy for the auditor to recover). (SOS, Bk. 2, p. 230) 5. we say the analytical mind is kind of a misnomer because most people think it’s some kind of computing machine, and it’s not, it’s just the pc, the thetan. (SH Spec 23, 6106C29)
