Although Dianetics and Scientology can take man from the lowest states of being to states where nothing can strike him down, there is a phenomena that can make reaching these states impossible. That condition is known as potential trouble source (PTS).
PTSness is in fact the only situation that can make a being lose gains received in training or processing.
A PTS is a person who is connected with a suppressive person. His intentions are blunted. His purposes are suppressed. His actions are met with counter-intention and thwarted. The PTS caves in. He’ll be sick or roller-coaster. He’ll lose his gains. He causes trouble. In short, until this situation is handled, he’s not to be trained or processed.
So as can be seen, PTSness is a situation urgently needing attention when present. And while there are many techniques available to handle PTSness depending on the specific circumstances, every PTS — handling to be considered complete — contains the How to Confront and Shatter Suppression PTS/SP Course.
TECHNOLOGY FOR USE[1. From Celebrity Issue 353 (2004 CCI)
Regardless of being an artist, however, the PTS/SP Course does give you real gains. While a person who hasn’t done the course may underestimate its value, it can’t be overstated. LRH stated the following in Science of Survival:
“The reasonable man quite ordinarily overlooks the fact that people from 2.0 down have no traffic with reason and cannot be reasoned with as one would reason with a 3.0. There are only two answers for the handling of people from 2.0 down on the Tone Scale, neither one of which has anything to do with reasoning with them or listening to their justification of their acts. The first is to raise them on the Tone Scale by unenturbulating some of their theta by anyone of the three valid processes. The other is to dispose of them quietly and without sorrow. Adders are safe bedmates compared to people on the lower bands of the Tone Scale. Not all the beauty nor the handsomeness nor artificial social value nor property can atone for the vicious damage such people do to sane men and women.”
IF YOU LIVE ON PLANET EARTH…
YOU MUST DO THIS COURSE
When LRH was asked who exactly should do the PTS/SP Course he said, “Every one of them. They live in the United States. They live in England. They have governments. They are on planet Earth”.
That’s because there’s only one thing wrong with this planet — suppressives who specialize in caving people in. They walk among us undetected, hiding behind masks of social veneer. And they use these masks while they spread confusion and enturbulation across the globe, into your own living room or your workplace.
But there’s a tech to shatter the façade, and reveal in vivid detail, the true face of suppression. Available in Scientology Academies around the world, the “How to Confront and Shatter Suppression” Course will arm you with the tech to shatter suppression and operate at cause.
BE IMPERVIOUS TO SUPPRESSION, FOREVER.
Do the HOW TO CONFRONT AND SHATTER SUPPRESSION” PTS/SP COURSE at your Church of Scientology and cause your future.
KNOW SUPPRESSION WHEN YOU SEE IT — INSTANTLY!
When you can predict human behavior, you can spot suppression within seconds. Before it can do you in. And you can choose friends and associates who will enrich your life. Not wreck it.[1. From Celebrity Issue 359 (2004).
The PTS/SP Course has long been the most popular course at Celebrity Centre, and in fact Scientology internationally, for good reason. Surveys of those who’ve done the course found it puts one at a whole new level of cause in life, makes one able to spot a suppressive person a mile away and gives the ability and tools to handle any suppression, fast. […]
If everyone made their intentions clear, perhaps less people would fall effect of suppression. But suppressives do make their intentions clearly known — you just have to know what to look for, an ability honed and perfected on the PTS/SP Course. […]
“An SP confronted by someone who knows and can use all the tech concerning SPs would shatter.” — L. Ron Hubbard, from HCO Policy Letter “Your Post and Life.”2
