The Creator of Save Scientology Is …

arrows-cover_front_smallMerrell Vannier reveals his role as the creator and writer of this website in his newly published book, Arrows in the Dark.

For more information about the book, and to order a copy, visit: www.arrowsinthedark.com. See also: www.merrellvannier.com

This event marks a turning point in the history of this site and its mission to reform the church and save it from self-destruction.

In his book, Merrell describes his personal journey in Scientology, from his introduction to the subject in the fall of 1972 to his current reform activities.

In between, he trained to become a professional auditor at the St. Louis church, became a volunteer for the intelligence bureau of the Guardian’s Office, practiced law, and later joined the U.S.G.O. staff in Los Angeles.

He was present when the G.O. was taken over by the Sea Org. In fact, he was asked by Mary Sue Hubbard to witness the confrontation between Bill Franks and Jane Kember, which took place in Mary Sue’s office. After the takeover, he was assigned to the Mission All Clear Unit, an autonomous entity that was responsible for overseeing all legal actions involving LRH.

ATTACKING CRITICS & WHISTLEBLOWERS
IS NOT THE SOLUTION

In recent years, Merrell teamed with two other long-standing, dedicated Scientologist lawyers to write letters to church lawyers and officials asking them to:

Implement the corporate checks and balances LRH outlined in his estate plan;

Conduct internal investigations, independent of David Miscavige and those under his control and direction;

Refrain from attacking former high-ranking Sea Org members who have gone public with allegations of wrongdoing; and

Reinstitute LRH’s 1968 Reform Code of Scientology (i.e., repeal of disconnection, fair game, and security checking).

This website was created after more than sixty knowledge reports, letters, and other attempts to obtain reform on church lines proved futile.


THE PROBLEM IS INTERNAL

We see two major WHYs accounting for the increasing loss of church membership and negative media. They are related. The first is the lack of checks and balances as called for by LRH in his estate plan. This has led to dictatorial rule and abuse of staff and church members. The second is out-tech. (For specifics, please see: http://friendsoflrh.org)

Church policy clearly assigns responsibility for any and all down statistics to church executives, not to external forces. Here are just a few LRH policy references which cover this point, courtesy of the Friends of LRH website:

“I’ve learned this over the years: The entirety of our stats are internally caused.

“WE CAN CAUSE STATS AT WILL. External actions don’t affect them.

“A newspaper can write reams of entheta and it doesn’t affect our stats at all.”

HCO P/L 18 March 1977RA
Data Series 43RA, Evaluation and Programs
(Management Series Vol. 1, p. 167)

“It has been found that the whole reason for any lack of prosperity of an org is INTERNAL.”

HCO P/L 7 March 1972R
The Establishment Officer
(Management Series Vol. 2, p. 3)

“So the ogre which might eat us up is not the government or the High Priests. It’s our possible failure to retain and practice our technology.”

HCO P/L 7 February 1965
KSW Series 1, Keeping Scientology Working
(OEC Vol. 0, p. 7)

In the days and weeks ahead we will roll out our plans for rallying Scientologists, OSA staff members, and the trustees and directors on the boards of the governing corporations (CST, RTC and CSI), and their lawyers, to wear their hats, bypass David Miscavige, and cause the necessary reform to not only survive the current media onslaught but to turn it to our advantage.

    Thanks for putting up the site. It’s well designed and concise. I will get the book. It’s been obvious to me for some time that something is going on but there are pieces of missing data. I think you are filling in some of that data and the picture is getting clearer.

  2. Jim Logan says:

    You continue to be a stable terminal in this whole adventure. Thanks for all of your work and efforts toward the Optimum Solution to the situation.

    ” We can cause stats at will. External actions don’t affect them” Exactly!! Great article!!

  4. ingrid smith says:

    ‘ We can cause stats at will. External actions don’t affect us” Perfect!!! With a thriving field practice in the middle of alot of attacks on Scientology,I can attest this is a very true statement. Fantastic article Merrell

    • admin says:

      Thank you, but truth told I had some help, as I have had for every article posted on this blog. I will pass it on.

      FYI, I am the principle writer and the administrator of this site, but every article ever written was floated by our editorial board, which consists of responsible persons who have volunteered to help, and has varied in composition depending on their availability and interest level.

    Hi Merrell,

    It’s about time something effective was done about this mess we are in.

    • admin says:

      Agreed. But we also had to let the physical universe catch up. Not everything can happen by Thursday at 2 p.m.

      • Robin Adair says:

        I’ve met one or two product officers who would disagree.

        But as I used to say in response “the result is the result and time is just an entered arbitrary” 😉

        Looking forward to reading your book.

    I appreciate what you, or you guys are doing.

    In asking the following question, I don’t seek to railroad the topic nor discourage or introduce counter-intention to what you aim to achieve, as you have my full 100% support.

    But realistically, what can you do to dislodge Miscavige who holds all the legal strings, controls the church lawyers, his position with the IRS for tax exemption, as well as all the bank accounts? I’d like to see a workable plan if possible.

    • admin says:

      Thanks for your support. Miscavige does not control all power. Far from it. He has sold that, rather convincingly to many. But it’s not true. The book, Arrows in the Dark, touches on this. We will go into this in the coming days and weeks. Been kind of a whirlwind lately.

      • Formost says:

        Super, Thanks for your response.

        I guess the hot air he had managed to pass off on Scientologists for decades made it seem so.

    • Chris Mann says:

      I think getting the truth out about him helps. Watching the interviews and reading about his physical violence and the way he handles people is what convinced me to leave. I had a gut feeling something like that was happpening because the whole organization just didnt feel right. I arrived in the early 90s and it just kept going downhill and getting further from what I thought it should be. When I got some missing data that I knew was true because it explained so many things, and watched the Truth Rundown interviews, I left, publicly- and I talked to people. Most of them disconnected but some did not.
      Miscavige has false “ethics protection” maintained by false PR and lies. He uses the events to promote himself, but his products are bogus and the illusion cant last forever.

      • Merrell says:

        True, he can’t and won’t last forever. The trends are clear. Miscavige is becoming more and more exposed, and members are increasingly looking and beginning to see the actual situation. His pillars of support are rapidly eroding. OSA staff, the trustees and general directors of the governing corporations, will eventually realize the power and responsibility they have, and pull the plug. They can turn to us, confidentially. We can show them LRH’s plan for checks and balances and the failsafe he created to handle a situation like this very one. We have lawyers expert in religious corporate law on retainer who can, in one quick strike, help them assert those powers.

        We can counsel them on what to do once they assume their legal and ecclesiastical duties. Internal investigations done independently of Miscavige — and credibly done — will quell the media and soon-to-come regulatory attacks.

        We do not regard OSA and church staff as enemies, bots, or any other derogatory terms. As Scientologists, we all share some responsibility in the current situation. Enough of the right persons will come around, assume responsibility to “look,” and will see and will want to do something about it.

        There are some of us out here who are not “using a wrong way to right a wrong,” to quote from HCO PL 11 May 71, “Black PR.” There are some of us out here who have not gone into apathy. There are some of us who have not fallen for the invalidation being spread in the Scientology field. “The definition of invalidation is making somebody realize he can’t do something about it…;” “Insanity, then, would be that condition pursuant to the consideration of the individual that he is in a dangers environment, so dangerous that it cannot ever be coped with, now or in the future, and probably in the belief that he’d never coped with it. See, that would be the complete, gone apathy with the whole thing…;” and “This is the biggest trick that your real entheta boys use. They get people to go around admitting that they can’t do anything about it.” 1st ACC Lecture 19, Disc 21, “Subjective Processes, Perimeter Processing (Continued).

        We have heard statements like, “The Church is dead,” “it’s impossible to fix the situation,” the latter of which morphed into blame for the condition on LRH and Scientology principles itself. These are false data from the mouths and pens of those who have gone into apathy and admitted that they can’t do anything about it.

        Well, We can do something about it. And We will do something about it.

        I get ahead of myself. This subject is our next article.

        • Robin Adair says:

          Looking forward to your next article Merrell.

          I myself am tired of the BPR lines that Church members are “bubble dwellers”, “brain washed”, “living in the ‘Truman Show'” or whatever.

          As far as I’m concerned it ain’t nuttin’ but enemy lines.

          Like us they are Scientologists who happen to belong to an organization that is corrupt but is still their stable datum.

          I believe one of the biggest hurdles we as Scientologists have to get over is how the word “Scientologist” has been redefined by the formerly “Secret Closing Agreement” and that “disinformation” booklet promoted by Miscavige’s “friends” in InterPol to mean someone who is a member of a Scientology organization.

          By definition a Scientologist is:

          1. one who betters the conditions of himself and the conditions of others by using Scn technology. (Aud 73 UK) 2 . one who controls persons, environments and situations. A Scientologist operates within the boundaries of the Auditor’s Code and the Code of a Scientologist. (PAB 137) 3 . one who understands life. His technical skill is devoted to the resolution of the problems of life. (COHA, p. 12) 4 . a specialist in spiritual and human affairs. (Abil Ma 1)

          No where does it say that membership with the current Organization is required. BTW membership originally had nothing to do with building up a war chest of some kind (which *is* the purpose of the Building Fund Account.) or setting up what are being called “Ideal Orgs” (again this is covered in the policy on the Building Fund.) or some false flag “humanitarian mission” or distributing over priced WTH books or expensive and ineffective (for fun and profit by a few) but is covered in the article on What Your Fees Buy (which means for *services*) and the policies on Gung Ho groups.

          The reason for memberships is not as some tax exempt money making racket but is simply per OPERATIONAL BULLETIN NO. 17 PROCESSING RESULTS
          14 February 1956:

          The fact of the matter is a membership establishes the size of an organization to officialdom. Therefore we have to have members by the ton.

          Making the IAS one of the most downstat activities on the planet because every year it loses more and more members.

          The press currently is having a hay day “proving” that the Organization’s claim of millions of Scientologists is patently *false* by the IRS and InterPol’s redefinition of what a “Scientologist” is which has been accepted by the Secret Closing Agreement.

          Yet the irony is is there are probably millions of people on this planet who are applying some tenant of Scientology that they may have picked from reading a book on the subject or from a friend that they have used to improve their’s or someone else’s life.

          They’re just not on some official role.

          Anyway just a rant I had to “vent” :)

  7. Tom M says:

    Thanks Merrell, I read your book and I loved it. It really answered a lot of questions for me and I already knew a lot of inside information(!)

    We will persevere because we are running with the truth and the old saw “The truth always prevails” is our theme.

    I have been writing letters to OSA asking them to take a look at what is going on. I also let them know that we are here to help in any way we can. Establishing ARC because I mean it. We can get the devil off of the Church’s back and help get everything back on the rails. Like LRH says “just continue to communicate and ARC will be restored”.

    ML Tom

    • Merrell says:

      Excellent. We, too, are here to help OSA staff and the directors and trustees of the governing corporations turn around this situation. We know some of them watch this blog. They could turn it on a dime. Take control of the boards — we can help them do that. Call for internal investigations — credibly done and independent of those accused of abuses/wrongdoing. This would deflate the coming onslaught of media. We can help them do that. Grant a general amnesty and reinstitute LRH’s 1968 Reform Code (i.e., cancel disconnection, fair game & security checks). This would destimulate the field. Apply Scientology. ARC, Attitude & Conduct of Scientology (4th London ACC, 3 Nov 1955).

      Behind it all will be a counterintelligence campaign, but the church lacks all credibility currently and is in no condition to address that situation. As I show in Chapter 6 of Arrows in the Dark, counterintelligence campaigns set in motion conflict and then the files are closed and buried while the combatants slug it out. Attacking the ex-SO member whistleblowers only exacerbates the conflict and further destroys church PR and credibility.

  8. Chuck Beatty says:

    Your book is the best written ex official Scientologist book written and I painstakingly read them all, one by one, and yours is the best written yet.

    I enjoyed hearing from an intelligent ex GO era player, someone who knew the law, did what they did, and can explain what they did, why, and all the coorobrating information clearly linked into the story to explain what you thought and why you as an GO (GAS member, then later US GO member, later asked to be in MAC, given your sec checks and plant check by Tom Martiniano and all he told you he learned in all the plant and sec checking Tom did in those years excellent material to consider and I think still debate some of the conclusions), but you really lay it all out, excellently.

    Very impressive book and I had thoughts like why the heck didn’t you aspire to rise up the ranks and share your mental skills and lawyerly logical thinking and clear speaking talents as a leader in the Scientology movement.

    I differ, on many points, all of the moral nature though, and some points your book doesn’t touch, all mainly moral points, which I think a reformed Scientology “squirrel” gorups I’ve read about, just innately adopt to their credit. Squirrels treat each other more simply and decently, and getting decency back into how the orgs treat their members in Ethics and Justice, if that can be achieved, fine.

    A bunch of writings, I wish you with your intelligence and communication skills would tackle the bigger long range strategic issues, and pare down Scientology, look at it in bigger longer range views.

    Maybe you are, and maybe you have already done this great book, and focused first and foremost on disconnection, which I would agree is the primary policy to let go just like Hubbard’s 1968 Ron’s Journal tape briefing let that policy go. (I differ, though, as you failed to touch upon WHY did the 1973 10 August HCOB come about, since clearly reading through the 10 Aug HCOB it’s clear that that issue mentions the disconnection option as if it never was ever discontinued, and Miscavige had nothing to do with the 10 Aug HCOB of 1973, a side issue, but major dig against the idea that disconnection was NOT an option, it’s been an option clearly, again, since 1973 as written by LRH, the whole history of how 10 Aug HCOB got issued, the dialogue behind the scenes that led to that issue clearly putting the disconnection option back into the Scientology movement’s repertoire, needs NOT to be avoided.) Again, I totally agree that either wholesale canceling of disconnection, or at least do a complete International Amnesty and declare ALL past SP declares ever issued that did NOT take into account a person’s total accumulated contributions and woth to Scientology be blanket canceled, no strings attached.

    Impressive job, I hope your efforts trying to get fresh brains at the helm of Scientology succeed.

    Just finished “Arrows in the Dark”. Excellent read, and answers a lot of questions from that period up to PT.
    I highly recommend it.
    BTW, you and Tom M. are really good writers (very easy to read, smooth flow and difficult to put the book down).

  10. Lou Landry says:

    Hello Merrell,
    Congratulations on, ‘Arrows In The Dark’ which I read from beginnning to end. Just a fantastic book. I thank-you sincerely for persisting and boundless courage.

    I’m attaching a copy of an HCOPL brought to our attention by Robin Adair;

    HCO POLICY LETTER OF 4 JANUARY 1966
    LRH RELATIONSHIPS TO ORGS

    Gen Non-Remimeo Issue VI
    LRH Communicator Hat
    HCO Area Sec Hat
    Exec Sec Hats
    Org Secs’ Hats

    I have several posts and relationships to orgs which make up several identities. Unless these are understood many errors can occur, not the least of which are tax errors, and not the least dangerous, power pushes and upsets. For instance, there are two Offices of LRH at Saint Hill. And one more for every other org. This is a familiar situation. It has happened in LA, Phoenix, DC and London. I always specially work with the org where I am situated as well as continue to handle all other orgs on an International basis and remain the chief executive of each org elsewhere.

    An org where I am, making more than other orgs, always bears the expense of international activities. In this case, here at Saint Hill, the org also shares international income and so its cost is light.
    Thus I have several hats and resultant Comm lines here at Saint Hill and at least one more in each org. These can be described as identities and posts as follows:

    LRH, AN INDIVIDUAL

    This is LRH a private person. This identity is the one who is entitled to any royalties and leases copyrights and trademarks and technology for use by Scientology organizations. This identity paid for and did the research, organized the organizations. This is the identity that loans orgs money or guarantees their bank accounts, etc, and on death is a private trust for my family.

    LRH,TRUSTEE

    This identity is a trustee who holds in trust properties and money for Scientology and since 1957 has held UK and Commonwealth corporations in trust for the original US company until these assets can be transferred to a UK non-profit corporation. As UK tax people will not okay such a non-profit status until after a year of operation we have formed other corporations in the UK and Commonwealth time and again only to have them refused non-profit status. The laws of Arizona prevent transfer of HASI assets abroad to any but a corporation with non-profit status. This leaves me as a Trustee of all assets outside the US until they can be transferred. But even after transfer I will still be a trustee for Scientology corporations. All money sent to LRH an individual is received by LRH a trustee or a corporation and is seldom paid to LRH an individual but turned over to companies without being given to LRH, an individual. This is a vital point, often missed even by accountants who then get us involved. If the money were 1. received by LRH, an individual and then 2. turned over to LRH a trustee and/or 3. received and used by a company, it would hang LRH an individual for huge tax sums for money he has never really received or used and indeed won’t ever get. Example: Mr. X sends a $20 franchise pay to “L. Ron Hubbard”. This is always invoiced by an org as “Franchise payment”. Therefore one concludes that “LRX’ in that case is LRH, a trustee. If one erred and said it was the income of LRH, an individual, that identity, never seeing the money, would yet owe tax on it, which is unfair. All incoming Ms to “LRX’ mean LRH, a trustee, and are used in company expenses or are put away to be in general defense. The point of confusion is that LRH, an individual, is actually owed those 10%s as royalties to support research, etc. But the companies receive and use the money and it doesn’t even go through the hands of LRH an individual. LRH, an individual, has not cancelled monies owed to him. He has not received them. LRH, a trustee, seldom gives LRH an individual any Scientology money. Tax authorities are astounded at this (believing the worst of everyone) but those on our accounts lines know it is so. This is LRH, a trustee. “Trustee” is an identity and activity almost all movements, churches and benevolent associations have and in each case the “Trustee” does just what LRH a trustee is doing-safeguarding property and assets of an association. It’s a very usual role.

    LRH, BOARD MEMBER

    This is an unpaid identity on several boards. It is entitled only to out-of-pocket expenses and almost never puts in for any. This is a member of a board of directors. These must be paid no salary in a non-profit corporation, only expenses. “Chairman” comes under this. Also “President”.

    LRH, EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR

    This is better understood as “General Manager” as it isn’t as a member of the board that it is held but as a manager. This is a paid post in any corporation or association. There are numerous LRH Exec Dir titles and identities; for this title repeats in each area and org and in the International Division.
    It means “highest executive of the organization”, “third member of the Advisory Council”, “head of the department called the Office of LRH”. Therefore there is one of these titles for each org we have and for the International Exec Division as well. Perth for instance has an LRH Executive Director Perth, LA has LRH Executive Director LA, etc.
    Then there is LRH Executive Director WW. The identity of the LRH Communicator in the org or activity gives clue to this. Each LRH Executive Director title has an LRH Communicator. There are two LRH Communicators at Saint Hill, LRH Communicator WW, who attends to each org for LRH Executive Director WW via each org’s LRH Communicator and LRH Communicator SH who handles the traffic both of LRH Executive Director WW as sent to it from the LRH Communicator WW and for LRH Executive Director SH.
    This is only possible as the orgs are all similarly engaged. HCO Area Secs filled this role for years and still do where there is no LRH Communicator. HCO Area Secs still have duties for the Executive Director regardless of the LRH Communicator as old policy letters show. “Sec Ed issue” is one of these.
    Proper routing from an org is through the LRH Comm of that org to LRH Executive Director of that org and forwarded on to LRH Comm WW who sees that LRH Exec Dir that org receives it in absence. LRH Exec Dir WW may issue a blanket order concerning it but it is usually answered by LRH Exec Dir that org.

    The Advisory Council of any org operates without its third member, LRH Exec Dir of that org, but in case of disputes or errors finds LRH Exec Dir that org taking it up.
    LRH, STAFF MEMBER

    In addition to all these other identities and titles there is that of LRH, Staff Member. As such I give staff lectures in the org where I am, assist where I can, crack cases and train students as “Co-ordinator of Research” (meaning application of research), write magazines, take pictures, act as a routing expert, listen to problems, and do a lot of other things. I am chiefly a staff member of the org where I am located but am also a staff member of each org.
    COMPLEXITY

    Necessarily, no one person can hold all these posts and identities. But at the same time, over the years, I have found they are the minimum number I must give attention to. To handle this complexity I have many persons assisting me. I expect them to act with initiative. I expect them to carry out the purposes I have regarding orgs and Scientology so as to keep things expanding and the lines clean and flowing and keep me from getting so involved on just one point I can’t do the rest of my jobs.

    For quite in addition to these posts, I have my research hat (our most important hat) and an organizing hat and a promotion hat and a public relations hat. My writing-books hat should absorb most of my time with research complete but not wholly published. Thus I expect people to do their jobs so I can then do my job and don’t like people to flub theirs and require special attention on it. Only this holds us back because I then can’t do my jobs which eventually breaks down our expansion and dissemination.

    OTHER ARRANGEMENTS

    Many other arrangements have been tried, fewer “identities”, less traffic for me. But each time some catastrophe has occurred. This then required more work than wearing that hat in the first place. The early Dianetic corporative catastrophes occurred because I did not have or wear all my Exec Director hats and had no legal control of the orgs. Since I began to wear these and took responsibility things have been much better indeed, so I can’t shed them. So these identities are a minimum by trial and error and by success.

    SUMMARY

    Anyone on high executive and Accounts lines should understand these things thoroughly and LRH Communicators should point them out.

    Only when these relationships are misunderstood do we get in trouble.
    Our growth depends on our staying out of trouble, getting our lines in and keeping corporate structure straight. And understanding these separate identities or titles and functions and using them.
    It is doubtful if this situation will change. As orgs grow, my assistants grow also and become more competent and refer less to me and work on delegated authority. My work is lighter the bigger we get so eventually I will hold only titles with no actions or duties. This can be continued easily and so there is no need to reduce identities to simplify lines. And there wouldn’t even be a need to reorganize if I wasn’t there in the flesh at all. All I need to do is work out a succession of assistants to make the activities continue. There is no succession of myself to be worked out in any identity regardless of what happens to me simply because I did the original work and as it is done there is no reason to have a succession for it as it is itself.

    My identities are therefore woven into the pattern so they don’t have to be altered to keep things going. LRH an individual becomes an estate. The rest is by appointment from “LRH Executive Director” with that title activated by the Int Ad Council or board but still used as a title but not of a person. The “Office of LRH” is part of org structure. And before long even LRH “a board member” will be, needless to be filled in the flesh, by delegated signature of LRH.

    This is not only today then, but tomorrow as well and the above identities are firm as identities whether I am here or not. Even today 99% of my functions are done by delegated authority. The 1 % left is heavy enough for 20 men but it is getting lighter each year and so can be seen to be only a post in a few years and so it can continue. Trying to fill up the post is all that would cause “a war”, so leave it activated as itself, none assigned to it, assistance to it by established formula. We won’t vanish if I as a person vanish. And these identities never were me anyway so they can survive. It is a part of basic org structure. My post title is used ten thousand times a day on matters I never will hear of, so why should I hear of any in the long run as only the delegation of authority is in action anyway.

    So whatever happens to me as a person leave these LRH identities on the org board unfilled and all will be well. If you try to fill them catastrophe will result. Only how authority is delegated by “LRH Executive Director” in my absence needs to be worked out and that will be published.

    Somebody some day will say “this is illegal”. By then be sure the orgs say what is legal or not.

      Thanks for both the compliment on the book and the policy letter. I don’t recall seeing that one before. Apropos.

  11. Lou Landry says:

    Highly Commended
    Merrell Vannier

    Congratulations to Merrell Vannier for his magnificent evaluation, accomplishments and his book, Arrows in the Dark. Times must change and indeed times have changed.

    Only four months ago I saw this situation as “the enemy had infiltrated C of S, successfully and completely unmocked management, crashed every stat of every genuine LRH piece of tech being applied and virtually turned Scientology on its head creating an Orwellian like monster churning out overt products in a stream.” The sheer volume of ARC breaks and enturbulation observable on the internet alone was phenomenal and a nightmare for every decent thetan involved. This had created a scene where the enemy appeared to have won. You and I know differently. It is only the biggest lie ever perpetrated on Mankind. But it is a lie and as LRH says; “The old must give way to the new, falsehood must become exposed by truth, and truth, though fought, always in the end prevails.”

    A fourth dynamic auditor, Merrell applied Scientology Ethics Gradients and Admin Tech as in Admin Dictionary definitions,

    EVALUATE,
    1. it is an action which is basically an intelligence action. The actual meaning which is supposed to be embraced in the word is “to examine the evidence in order to determine the situation” and then it could have a further “So as to formulate policy or planning relating thereto.” In other words, “What is the enemy going to do?” And therefore the General can say, “Therefore, we should.” (7201CO2 SO)
    2. to examine and judge the significance and condition of. (7201CO2 SO)
    3. determine the situation which even more simplified would be, find out the situation. From this body of data, from this indicator we can get a good situation, a bad situation or a no-situation. And that is what one is trying to determine.
    EVALUATION, 1. the purpose of an evaluation is to isolate and handle the cause of a non-optimum situation so as to reverse and improve it toward an ideal scene. An evaluation is also done to isolate the cause of a scene which is going well and to reinforce it. (BPL 16 Dec 73)
    2. I found that getting the situation was a common bug. Evidently people don’t do a real stat analysis and get an ideal scene, look for its furthest departure and get the situation and then look for data and find the why. There are many ways to go about it but the above is easy, simple and foolproof. It would look like this on a worksheet: gross divisional statistic analysis to find the area and a conditional guess. Ideal scene for that area. Biggest depart from it for the situation. Stats, data, out-point counts, why, ethics why, who, ideal scene, handling, bright idea. If you’re very good your gross divisional stat analysis will get confirmed by data. The real why opens the door to handling. And you can handle. This doesn’t change eval form. It’s just a working model. All good evals are very consistent all on same railroad track. Not pies, sea lions, space ships. Not pies, sea lions, space ships. But pies, apples, flour, sugar, stoves.

    3. by complete evaluation we of course mean, situation spotted, analyzed, why, recommended handling, and the agreed upon step. (7201CO2 SO)
