Tape 3: A Summary of Study
10 Feb 01
This is a comparison of two different versions of The Study Tapes, 1982 and 1987 versions, done by listening to an '87 tape, while reading from an '82 transcript, in order to find out what has been cut out of the tapes by RTC.
The editing begins very early on this tape also, with another odd edit of a sentence.
"Saint Hill Special Briefing Course, August the 4th, AD 14. All right."
Then, the following sentence was removed:
"I don't know why you've kept me waiting today the way you did."
Then the tape resumes with:
"You seem to have hit a few records here lately..."
This is the only deletion on the first side of the tape.
The only other deletion appears about 3/4 of the way through on the second side, just after Ron was discussing physics and energy, and has started talking about a thetan. The paragraph begins with:
"We're in a very safe relationship to this. We start with the being...".
A little further into this paragraph is where the deletion occurrs. I have enclosed the deleted section in [brackets] below.
"...and we can back you out of your skull and you can stand without a body. So you're not a body. That's very simple. We don't do this very often and don't require you to do it as one of your class exercises [because it makes people sick and unhappy]. But it does happen and it does work."
This concludes the alterations from the 1982 version to the 1987 version of tape 3.
