|Definition||Abbreviation for Decisions, Emotions, Energies, Polarities. A definition coined by Clearbird, based on chapter 2 of "A History of Man".|
NOTE: This article discusses an offshoot. Offshoots are considered something OTHER than Scientology, as they were not developed by L. Ron Hubbard, and they have never been practiced in any Scientology Church.
D.E.E.P. = Decisions, Emotions, Energies, Polarities.
Decisions include goals and all kinds of postulates, thoughts, beliefs and fixed ideas.
Energies include efforts, impulses and a range of body sensations.
Emotions include the emotions laid out on the tone scale; but they also include feelings, such as gut feelings and complex impressions from the mind or other Beings.
Polarities include conflicts and disagreements, be it violent as in war or more civilized as in personality clashes, discussions, arguments or major silent disagreements.
In DEEP processing we can even pinpoint physically where these phenomena are located on the case.
The DEEP approach is used in GPM handling (DCC), incident running (DIR), and all other auditing situations where efforts, emotions or thoughts (postulates) would otherwise remain unflat.
Reference: Ron Hubbard, "A History of Man", chapter 2:
"THOUGHT, EMOTION, EFFORT, COUNTER-THOUGHT, COUNTER-EMOTION, COUNTER-EFFORT, motivator ATTENTION UNITS, overt ATTENTION UNITS, ded ATTENTION UNITS and their manifestation on the various tone scale charts are the sum and total of factors to be audited out of any one target. Each and every auditing target contains these factors, is audited in the same way, has the same basic behaviour pattern and succumbs to such auditing."
