L. Ron Hubbard wrote the following words in Science of Survival:
To raise a person on this Tone Scale, it is only necessary to recover or convert theta from entheta — remove, in other words, the stores of turbulence from a person’s life or render them unrestimulated.
An auditor is not trying to cure anything. He is simply raising tone. Incidental to raising tone, psychosomatic ills commonly vanish and aberrations disappear. But this incidental. The task is to make human beings happier, more effective, better able to accept responsibility and aid his fellow man. That the person processed gets “well” in that period and stays “well” is a bonus.
Anything which raises a person’s tone can be considered legitimate processing. This includes, of course, nutrition, environment and education, as well as processing. Simply taking the person to see a movie he wants to see may raise his tone. Processing achieves permanent raises in tone. If it is illegal anywhere to process people, then it must also, sequitur, be illegal to make people happy. And if laws exist against making people happy, somebody had better overthrow that government quick. For it is a death government, so entheta that it will bring about the death of the state and those within it.
Have a brighter day:
