Thanks very much to DollarMorgue for pointing this out to us – in future we will be more vigilant thus ensuring our Qual function is in!
We have someone contributing to this blog who is meticulously going through old versions of LRH books and comparing them to the 2007 releases.
We hope to feature regular articles highlighting any changes, ommissions or additions.
Here is the first. The following paragraph can be found in the 1968 edition of History of Man but does not appear in the 2007 edition (The Basics).
“There is nothing so wild in the books of Man as will probably happen here on earth. And it will happen and be allowed to happen simply because all this is so incredible that nobody will even think of stopping it until it is far, far too late. Its incredibility is its best safeguard, so you needn’t bother to convince anybody who doesn’t want to believe it. It took the medical profession two and a half years to catch onto prenatals. People getting cleared of bodies don’t need any such time lag. And so, may I make this simple request-don’t get spectacular until a few of the boys make it. You don’t want to be lonesome-and you’ll need reinforcements if a war gets declared on thetans here. The preclear may think he can do it alone if he gets cleared of a body-he’ll need more help and company than he thinks. So again, as a final note on this chapter, lets not go upsetting governments and putting on a show to “prove” anything to Homo Sapiens for a while- it’s a horrible temptation to knock off hats at fifty yards and read books a couple of countries away and get into the rotogravure section and the Hearts Weeklies-but you’ll make it tough on somebody else who is trying to get across this bridge. Let sleeping Sapiens snore in the bulk for yet awhile. Then meet some place and decide what to do about him and his two penny wars, his insane and his prisons. Tell people who want to invalidate all this, “Your criticism is very just, its only fantasy.” Cure up the lame and halt and the incompetent with whatever display of technique you need. Protect theta clearing until there are a few.”
