CIRCUIT, 1. a part of an individual’s bank that behaves as though it were someone or something separate from him and that either talks to him or goes into action of its own accord, and may even, if severe enough, take control of him while it operates. A tune that keeps going around in someone’s head is an example of a circuit. (NOTL Gloss) 2. just an identity that is so dominant that it balls up a whole section of the whole track. It takes a large section of the whole track and bundles it all up in a black ball and it’s full of pictures. (SH Spec 105, 6201C25) 3. a circuit has no livingness in it. It is simply a motivated mass. (SH Spec 21, 6106C27) 4. matter, energy, space and time at a mental level, enclosing thought. (6009C13) 5. a mechanism which becomes an identity in itself, with its own “I” which takes a piece of the analyzer, walls it off with the charge, and thereafter
dictates to the preclear. In olden times, these were called demons. (SOS, Bk. 2, p. 202) 6. divisions of your own mind that seem to make up other personalities and these other personalities affect you and argue with you and so forth. (5203CM05D)
CIRCUIT CASES, the auditor will encounter many cases which resolve very rapidly. These account for fully 50% of the people who come to him, but he will also encounter many people whose cases are resistive and he will encounter a small handful who wouldn’t let anything happen if the auditor used a shotgun on them. These are classified as “circuit cases.” (PAB 19)
CIRCUITRY, 1. consists of “you” phrases. They are the phrases addressed from an exterior “I” to “you.” “I have to tell you” is still a “you” addressing the “I.” These phrases are received from persons who seek to nullify the independence of
judgment of others. (NOTL, p. 49) 2. circuitry is an escape from knowing. It is knowingness in a substitute for lack of knowing. When a thetan escapes from knowing, he sets up a circuit. (SH Spec 68, 6110C18)
