TERM, terminal–designation of a type of GPM item (R6 materials). (HCOB 23 Aug 65)
TERMINAL, 1. it would be any fixed mass utilized in a communication system. That, I think, is the best of the various definitions that have come out for this. Any mass used in a fixed position in any communications system. Thus you see a man would be a terminal, but a post could also be a terminal. (5703PM01) 2. something that has mass and meaning which originates, receives, relays and changes particles on a flow line. (HCO PL 25 Jul 72) 3 . anything used in a communication system; something that has mass in it. Something with mass, meaning and mobility. Anything that can receive, relay or send a communication. (HCOB 25 Jan 65) 4. any point of no form or any form or dimension from which energy can flow or by which energy can be received. (Scn 8-8008, p. 32) 5. a terminal is what you need in order to get a perception. (Spr Lect 3, 5303M24) 6. one of a pair of reliable items of equal mass and force, the significance of which the thetan has aligned with his own intentions. (HCOB 13 Apr 64, Scn VI Part One Glossary of Terms) 7. an item or identity the pc has actually been sometime in the past (or present) is called a terminal. It is “the pc’s own valence” at that time. In the goals problem mass (the black masses of the reactive mind) those identities which, when contacted, produce pain, tell us at once that they are terminals. The person could feel pain only as himself (thetan plus body) and therefore identities he has been produce pain when its mental residues (black masses) are recontacted in processing Symbol: term.
