It can occur that a person working up through the lower ethics conditions can get hung up at Doubt and not be able to complete the formula.
In such instances a PTS condition or false data may be found to exist.
In the Doubt Formula one follows the steps of the formula and by doing so is then able to make up his mind as to the individual, group, org or project the condition is being applied to. But if he’s PTS, he is stuck in a problem and is unable to come to a decision.
When a person is faced with suppression, whether the actual suppression exists in present time or is a past suppression restimulated in present time, he is facing a counter-postulate.
A problem is a postulate-counter-postulate resulting in indecision: the first manifestation of and the first consequence of a problem is indecision.
Therefore a PTS condition can hang one up at Doubt.
False data can also cause a hang-up on the Doubt Formula.
In one case a person who couldn’t get through Doubt was found to be PTS to someone from an earlier group he’d been in. This SP had fed him a bunch of false data on the tech of doing his post and on what the purpose of his post was.
In present time he was still stuck with this suppressive false data-it was part of his PTSness. In addition to the usual de-PTSing actions done, the false data was cleaned up and he was then able to get through Doubt.
On somebody who hangs up at Doubt, the Ethics Officer or whoever is handling him should check for a PTS condition or false data.
It can be one or the other or both.
A PTS condition is of course located and handled as per the existing materials on PTS tech.
Getting rid of the guy’s false data would have to be done by someone that had checked out on the HCOB on it (HCOB 7 Aug. 79, FALSE DATA STRIPPING).
When the ethics conditions formulas are correctly and standardly applied, the results can be nothing short of miraculous.
With this discovery you’ll get the results smoother and faster.
