Understanding the E-meter5. the meter tells you what the preclear’s mind is doing when the preclear is made to think of something. The meter registers before the preclear becomes conscious of the datum. It is therefore a pre-conscious meter. It passes a tiny current through the preclear’s body. This current is influenced by the mental masses, pictures, circuits and machinery. When the unclear pc thinks of something, these mental items shift and this registers on the meter. (EME, p. 8)...more (this is a 145 page hardcover book, profusely illustrated in black-and-white, a compilation and extrapolation of the works of L. Ron Hubbard concerning the e-meter2.

The E-meter is not intended or effective for the diagnosis, treatment or prevention of any disease. (Scn AD)...more; we don't have a link to the text and pictures at the moment) [[20]].

Books Which Are Compilations of Spoken Material and Shorter Written Material

The Blue Volumes

L. Ron Hubbard gave about 3000 lectures most of them an hour or more in length. There's been an ongoing task over many years of publishing these in book form. These were formally entitled The Research and Discovery Series but, they, all being bound in blue, are commonly referred to as "The Blue Volumes". Volume 1, covering June 1950 (first printing 1980), is 822 pages including a very comprehensive index. To the best of our knowledge there are now at least 16 volumes to March of 1953. We await more data on this

The Red VolumesColloquial name for "The Technical Bulletins of Dianetics and Scientology", which contained the majority of HCO Bulletins and also some other written technical material.

L. Ron Hubbard published an enormous amount of written material in shorter form, most notably HCO Bulletins but also Policy Letters, et cetera. Those which were of a technical nature (technical in this context meaning concerned with Scientology auditingThe application of Scientology processes and procedures to someone by a trained auditor. (Dianetics & Scientology Technical Dictionary (C) 1975), therapy et cetera) and training were mostly published as HCO bulletins and have been compiled into large volumes which are formally called The Technical Bulletins of Dianetics1. DIA (Greek) through, NOUS (Greek) mind, deals with a system of mental image pictures in relation to psychic (spiritual) trauma. The mental image pictures are believed on the basis of personal revelation to be comprising mental activity created and formed by the spirit, and not by the body or brain. (BPL 24 Sept 73 V) 2. Dn addresses the body. Thus Dn is used to knock out and erase illnesses, unwanted sensations, misemotion, somatics, pain, etc. Dn came before Scn. It disposed of body illness and the difficulties a thetan was having with his body. (HCOB 22 Apr 69)...more and Scientology but are commonly called The Red VolumesColloquial name for "The Technical Bulletins of Dianetics and Scientology", which contained the majority of HCO Bulletins and also some other written technical material. . Most of The Red VolumesColloquial name for "The Technical Bulletins of Dianetics and Scientology", which contained the majority of HCO Bulletins and also some other written technical material. are in chronological order, though two of the first edition concern themselves with a particular series of Bulletins and a comprehensive index of the first eight volumes. The colour red was used in the printing (duplicating/mimeographing) of HCO bulletins which were therefore frequently called (the) "Red on White".

The Green Volumes

HCO Policy Letters were always mimeographed/duplicated with green ink on white paper and thus were frequently referred to as "Green on White", so when they were compiled into volumes it is not surprising that they were bound in green and became referred to as the Green Volumes. The production of the Green Volumes began in 1969/1970 and was supervised by Ken Delderfield. It was an enormous task with so many 1 to 10 page Policy Letters to be typed in. Policy Letters were basically concerned with running Scientology organisations, although they had implications outside that sphere, so Ken chose to collect the Policy Letters as they applied to different parts of the standard seven division Scientology Org Board (organisation plan) of that time into a volume for each division, except that they began with a Volume 0 which was concerned with Policy Letters which all staff members "should" be familiar with (369 pages of it). When the job was done and Ron Hubbard saw the results he gave a strong commendation to Ken Delderfield (which he deserved) but remarked that the Red on White should have been done first and that the Red on White should be done in chronological order.

PDF version

In 1991 new editions of both the Green and the Red VolumesColloquial name for "The Technical Bulletins of Dianetics and Scientology", which contained the majority of HCO Bulletins and also some other written technical material. were issued. These included both more recent issues than in the first edition and additionally certain items which had been in the first edition were omitted. For instance in HCO Bulletin of 22 September 1960, which talks about the First Saint HillThe name of LRH's home in East Grinstead, Sussex, England. (BTB 12 Apr 72R) ACCAdvanced Clinical Course - ACC - one of a number of theory and research courses delivered by L. Ron Hubbard during the years 1953 to 1961, which gave a deep insight into the phenomena of the mind and the rationale of research and investigation. there is a list of the 39 participants (including Antony Phillips, first contributor to this page) in the first edition of the Red VolumesColloquial name for "The Technical Bulletins of Dianetics and Scientology", which contained the majority of HCO Bulletins and also some other written technical material., and that list is completely missing in the second edition.

In the free field (meaning among Scientologists and ex-Scientologists no longer under the control of the Church of Scientology) someone by the name of Naveed Maqbool worked like a devil scanning in the material of both the old and the new Red and Green Volumes and compiled them into one PDF conglomerate whereby you can click your way to any Bulletin or Policy Letter by first getting the appropriate volume up and then searching that. That PDF conglomerate is available for free at the following sites: [data on this is being looked for and an Internet host is wanted –- write to ant.phillips@post8.tele.dk ]. With the appropriate program you can extract one page or more (for example a complete Policy Letter) into a separate PDF file (with a slight blemish) and if wanted turn that PDF into a text file. You can also search the whole set of new and old volumes for a word (such as "Quentin") and get all the references in all the volumes which contain that word.

Tape transcriptions

Perhaps a note on the LRHL. Ron Hubbard lecture transcriptions which have been issued is relevant here.

In the Church of Scientology there could be up to three different written versions of a tape lecture of L Ron Hubbard's. Though not strictly speaking a transcription, the Blue Volumes contained an edited version of LRHL. Ron Hubbard lectures. The other two versions were transcriptions (a transcript being word for word and not edited, intended to be a help in listening to the tape) of the reel to reel lecture (the original lectures were made on reel to reel tape equipment) and transcriptions of the CD versions of the lecture which was sometimes different, in order to make them fit on a standard CD.

After departures by many people from the church (in the 1980s) many tapes were copied onto digital media, and were often accompanied by 7 to 10 different transcripts (in various text file formats). In one set inspected they had not been well proofread. It has been estimated that Ron made approximately 2950 lectures, of which 447 were included in what was called the "Wall of Tapes" on the St Hill Special Briefing Course. In one of these collections of tapes there were 1172 lectures with accompanying transcripts; seven or more transcripts to each lecture and in the collection looked at they appeared to be not (or badly) proofread. It does however show the eagerness of some to get out LRHL. Ron Hubbard data despite the suppressiveness of the church..This section is not too relevant to LRHL. Ron Hubbard books so at a later date a more appropriate place in Scientolipedia will no doubt be found for it.
