DEAD THETAN, 1. doesn’t put out any current. Doesn’t react on a meter. Only the body reacts so it looks like a clear read (false read). An ARC break of long duration reads the same way. (LRH Def. Notes) 2. a false clear read. (HCOB 17 Oct 69) 3. clear read without tone arm motion and tight needle. That’s your lowest case range, save one. There is one below that. (SH Spec 300, 6308C28). 4. he’s so “dead in his head” he thinks he’s elsewhere while he’s there. (SH Spec 1, 6105C07) 5. he thinks of himself as dead and he is totally incapable of influencing the E-meter. (SH Spec 1, 6105C07)
