Our ability to evaluate information (data) is seriously impaired by the data we receive to evaluate it with. Where do people get their data from? The Internet, Social Media, newspapers, magazines and the opinion of others! The world is awash with false data and opinion.
How on earth can a person make a decision based on the information that is just fed to them without proof, based only on someone else’s opinion?
Below LRH states as a fundamental truth: “SANITY IS THE ABILITY TO RECOGNIZE DIFFERENCES, SIMILARITIES AND IDENTITIES. This is also intelligence”.
Is it any wonder that people make wrong decisions, incorrect choices and generally are in a confused state of mind? Their own stable data is so easily thrown into doubt and constantly being other-determined or destroyed by uninspected outside sources!
An expert in Data Evaluation has the ability to take apart, understand and handle virtually any situation. However, you don’t have to be an expert data evaluator to do this, but you can gain enormous understanding of situations if you learn to use LRH’s key Data Evaluation Tech.
THE ANATOMY OF THOUGHT – Per LRH … There are many types of thought. Unless one knows these types, he can make serious errors on administrative lines. In the unpublished work “Excalibur” (most of which has been released in HCOBs, PLs and books) there was an important fundamental truth.
This was: SANITY IS THE ABILITY TO RECOGNIZE DIFFERENCES, SIMILARITIES AND IDENTITIES. This is also intelligence. Data Series 1R HCO POLICY LETTER OF 26 APRIL 1970R REVISED 15 MARCH 1975
As we have said a number of times before on this Blog … Do the Data Evaluators Course! Read and understand the Data Series. That is the Tech to survive on this crazy Planet!
There is also another fundamental that should be in place before anything else is studied, and that is a thorough understanding and application of the Study Technology!
“When one sees a bunch of people moving through the molasses, unable to move or get something done, it is normally because they lack the basics of the subject. They are in a state of mind that all data is as important as all other data, all advisers are as important as all other advisers and all data is all other data.
“What these people have missed is that: (a) the right data they would need are the simple basics that underlie all the other data and which, if applied, get you the product, and (b) a datum is just as valid as it gets you the product.” LRH, HCOB 20 April 1991, “Cramming and Basics”, Technical Bulletins volume XIII, page 495
Peoples ability to just “LOOK” is perverted by the flood of false data, photoshopped images and plain lies that they are told!
“You see, truth must exist before lies and truth blows the lie away as it is later on the chain. And any suppressive person or group seeking to dissuade you or invalidate you deals only in lies. These lies are quite easily spotted if you know the Data Series.
“Most people get so confused by all the lies around, they come to believe anything they’re told and that’s the reason the suppressive lies. But with the Data Series, one can spot bad data so easily it is itself a sort of relief to know it.
“And as you burrow your way down through the layers of lies, you come to truth. And truth blows the lies away.” LRH, LRH ED 348 Int, “Ron’s Journal 37”, 13 March 1983
Unfortunately, school or university today does very little to teach youngsters how to analyze the data they are given …
“Thus, we will not be stressing HOW to think but how to analyze that with which one thinks — which is DATA.” LRH, HCOPL 12 May 1970, Data Series 3, “Breakthroughs”, Management Series Volume 1, pages 16-17.
“As processing improves the mind’s ability to reach right answers, then we can assume for our purposes that if a person can straighten out his data, he can be logical and will be logical and can attain right answers to situations.
“The fallacy of the mind is that it can operate on wrong data.
“Thus, if we specialize in the subject of DATA ANALYSIS, we can assume that a person can attain right answers.
“As an administrator (and anyone else) has to reach conclusions in order to act and has to act correctly to ensure his own or his group’s continued survival, it is vital that he be able to observe and conclude with minimal error.
“Thus, we will not be stressing HOW to think but how to analyze that with which one thinks – which is DATA.” LRH, HCOPL 12 May 1970, Data Series 3, “Breakthroughs”, Management Series Volume 1, pages 16-17
