DED, 1. an incident the preclear does to another dynamic and for which he has no motivator–i.e. he punishes or hurts or wrecks something the like of which has never hurt him. Now he must justify the incident. He will use things which didn’t happen to him. He claims that the object of his injury really DEserveD it, hence the word DED, which is a sarcasm. (HOM, p. 75) 2. an overt act without having a justification for it in the first place. The motivator is on the wrong side of the overt act and that motivator on the wrong side of an overt act is called a DED. It’s a deserved action. (5206CM24C)
DED-DEDEX, 1. the overt-motivator sequence went backwards. You hit Joe, then he hits you. Although it went this way you had it figured out that he must have hit you first. So you invented something that he did to you to motivate your hitting him. (SH Spec 83, 6612C06) 2. overt-motivator sequence; when somebody has committed an overt, he has to claim the existence of motivators–the Ded-Dedex version of Dn. (HCOB 7 Sept 64 II) 3. where the preclear all out of his own imagination has done something to somebody else and then it has been done to him. (PAB 18)
DEDEX, 1. an incident which happens to a preclear after he has a DED. It is always on the same chain or subject, is always after the DED. It means the DED EXposed. It is covered guilt. (HOM, p. 75) 2. deserved action explained would be one interpretation of DEDEX. The deserved action. This is why the action was deserved. This is why he blew Joe Blink’s head off, because twenty years later a fellow by the name of Cuffbah tapped him on the temple. (PDC 29) 3. motivator. (Scn 8-80, p. 32)
