Basic Study Manual
"There is much to learn about the Scientology study technologyThe methods of application of an art or science as opposed to mere knowledge of the science or art itself. (HCOB 13 Sep 65) ''Abbr.'' tech as it includes numerous elements which combined, make up a comprehensive whole, but the unpleasant phenomena associated with going past words, symbols, abbreviations, acronyms, idioms, derivations, foreign language phrases, slang or anything one does not understand before proceeding, is undoubtedly the most important.
A cascade of unfortunate things take place after one skips over unknown or not understood words...and once having done so, one becomes to a greater or lesser degree less attentive, less awake, less alive and less interested in what one is reading or studying and thus begins the inevitable slide into disinterest and often the complete abandonment of the course of study." 
1990 - 2000
