STILL NEEDLE AND CONFESSIONALS
HCOB 11 Apr. 82 SEC CHECKING IMPLANTS
The still needle which does not react on ordinary things it should react on is an indicator of withholds.
This is covered in the recent HCOB of 11 Apr. 82, SEC CHECKING IMPLANTS, but there is more data.
The “withhold” can be partially gotten off and one can get a strange F/N. It is strange because, while it is an F/N, it is less than normal width and has a sort of spring on each end, as though the needle was hitting a spring or cushion. It is not a nice flowing F/N. And if you look close you can see it is sort of springing back. It is not flowing clean. The F/N also tends to stop too soon, does not carry over.
It indicates the subject of the withhold or area of life is still somewhat withheld.
When you clean the withholds up all the way on the subject or area being sec checked, you get a free flowing F/N.
As it is fatal to miss a withhold, realize it is also fatal to miss part of a withhold.
Although the person is always a party to the withhold, it is not necessarily true that he or she committed the overts being withheld. It still registers as a still needle. And still behaves when partly clean with that F/N.
However, the person, in all cases so found, is either the one who committed the overts personally or was withholding for somebody else. It won’t clean up just by seeking to shift the responsibility and get off the hook. It may even go “stiller.” The isness of it is the isness of it.
This tech is new. It resulted from research I did on Sec Checks with the Mark VI E-Meter. It may or may not apply to the Mark V, but the probability is that it does. The Mark VI, however, is dead-on with this subject.
See a chronically still needle in answer to your questions? It tends to indicate a withhold. See an F/N that does not flow and springs at the end? The subject you are sec checking is not fully clean.
Nice to know, eh?
