COMMUNICATION, 1. the consideration and action of impelling an impulse or particle from source point across a distance to receipt point with the intention of bringing into being at the receipt point a duplication and understanding of that which emanated from the source point. (HCOB 5 Apr 73) 2. the first and most basic definition of any part of communication is that communication or any part thereof is a consideration. As duplication is a consideration, communication is possible to the degree that the preclear can freely make considerations. (COHA, pp. 170-171) 3. the operation, the action, by which one experiences emotion and by which one agrees. Communication is not only the modus operandi, it is the heart of life and is by thousands of per cent the senior in importance to affinity and reality.
