Narconon- Rehab Series- Part 42

Objective 2, Book 4b

“Give me that hand,” I command Buster.

He puts his right hand in mine.

“Thank you,” I acknowledge, while turning his right wrist with my left hand and placing his hand back onto his lap (this is proper protocol for running this part of the objective).

We have moved onto Objective 2. This is the most annoying fucking thing I have ever experienced. They weren’t lying when they expressed this as being the most difficult Objective. There are four parts (A,B,C, and D). You are to use intention without reservation when giving the commands to each part (I still don’t know what that means). You are to run each part to a flat point before moving onto the next part.

Running it flat means running it three times without any cognition, comm lags (lag in communication/ignoring) or bites. Once you have run part A flat you move onto Part B and so on and so forth. It is confusing and I am not sure what kind of realizations they are wanting us to have. If a physical manifestation arises, we are supposed to ask what is happening and document it on our worksheets. A physical manifestation can be any kind of bite or comm lag, such as: rubbing at your eyes, looking away from your twin or scratching at a body part.

After three consecutive commands without any physical change, ignored commands or comm lags, we move onto part B. The commands for part B are similar to those of Book 1 Tr 6 1/2. It involves us up on our feet, looking at, walking over to and touching the damn walls again. The only difference with these commands, is the use of the word, “You” prior to the instruction. We utilize partitions as walls for the purpose of this drill. We are to enforce the commands with physical contact if our twin does not obey.

“You look at that wall,” I command, while pointing to the wall, (You always point at the wall with each command for this part of the Objective).

Buster looks at the wall.

“Thank you,” I acknowledge.

“You walk over to that wall,” I command, again pointing.

Buster refuses to move. I quickly grab his arm with my right hand and place my left hand on his back and guide him over to the wall.

“Thank you,” I acknowledge.

“You touch that wall,” I command.

Buster thinks he is funny and extends his arm, as if he were going to touch the wall, but stops short. I push his finger into the wall.

“Thank you,” I acknowledge.

“Ouch! Damn that hurt my finger,” Buster laughs. I am not amused.

“You turn around,” I command.

Buster turns around. Because Buster did not complete each command without physical changes, this does not count as one of the three times we need to run this part of the Objective before it’s reached its flat point. I repeat the commands, in hopes that Buster will run them flat. He does not. I repeat them again and this time, he willfully obeys each command. That means I need to run it two more times for us to move onto part C. However, if during either of these two times, he doesn’t obey a command or has a cognition, we start from square one all over again.

“You look at that wall,” I command.

Buster looks at the wall.

“I have a cognition,” he confesses.

“Okay,” I acknowledge, while reaching for my clipboard.

“I realize, that sometimes in life there are things that you have to do, even when you don’t want to. It is much easier to just do them, rather than kicking and screaming the whole way,” he cogs.

After I finish writing his cog, I acknowledge that he is in VGIs, ( Very good indicators) and we move on with me starting with the first command again.

“You look at that wall,” I command.

“I have another cognition,” Buster suggests.

“Okay,” I acknowledge, while reaching for the clipboard again.

“I realize that I choose what I look at and what I touch in life,” he cogs.

After documenting his cognition, I set the clipboard down and we position ourselves to run the objective again.

“You look at that wall,” I command.

Buster looks at it.

“Thank you,” I acknowledge.

“You walk over to that wall,” I command.

“Flunk! You didn’t point at the wall,” Buster laughs.

“Are you fucking kidding me right now?” I ask in an annoyed tone.

“You walk over to that wall,” I command, while exaggerating my pointing at it.

He walks over to it.

“You touch that wall,” I command.

He touches it and smirks.

“You turn around,” I command.

He turns around.

We run it three more times without any cogs, bites or physical changes, so we have run this part to its flat point and move onto part C of Objective 2.

Part C involves us positioning two chairs facing each other. In this part, your twins knees are between your legs. I laugh at the fact we are instructed to remain three feet apart by ethics daily, however, for this Objective, we are forced to touch. We then are to raise both of our hands with our palms open facing our twin. Once your twins palms are mirroring your hands, you can begin the commands.

“Put your hands against mine, follow them and contribute to the motion,” I command.

All motions are to be made using intention without reservation. Your twin is to follow the movements you make with both your right and left hands. After the motion is completed with your right, then left, then both hands, you are to return to the starting position and ask,

“Did you contribute to the motion?”

“Yes,” Buster replies.

“Good,” I acknowledge.

If your twin appears to be tired or is unwilling to execute the commands, you can take his wrist and force him to execute the commands one hand at a time. Because Buster ran through this without any cognition or bites, this counts as 1 of the 3 times we need to drill this before moving onto part D of Objective 2.

“Put your hands against mine, follow them and contribute to the motion,” I command.

“I have a cognition,” Buster confesses.

“Alright,” I acknowledge.

“I realize, that I have the ability to follow you or to choose for myself the direction I go in life,” he cogs.

“Okay,” I acknowledge.

“Put your hands against mine, follow them and contribute to the motion,” I command.

Buster complies.  I move my right hand in a circle. He follows. I move my left hand in a circle. Buster contributes to the motion. I move both hands to the side and Buster follows, his palms pressed against mine with each movement.

“Did you contribute to the motion?” I ask.

“Yes,” he replies.

“Good,” I acknowledge.

After we run it through without physical change, we are to move our palms a 1/2 inch apart and repeat the commands.

“Put your hands facing mine about 1/2 inch away, follow them and contribute to the motion,” I command.

Buster complies. With each time we drill this, we move another 1/2 inch away. We drill it until it runs flat.

Part D involves a book. For the purpose of the drill, we utilize the Alice in Wonderland books. We also move about three feet apart with our chairs still facing each other. There are no set commands with this part of the objective. However, the idea is that you are going to make a motion with the book, then hand the book to your twin and ask them to duplicate the motion. Your twin will then duplicate it and you ask if they have done so. You acknowledge if they have, or if they have not, you start again.

“I am going to make a motion with this book. I want you to watch the motion and then duplicate it,” I command.

“Okay,” Buster acknowledges.

I move the book to my right and pull it back towards my chest. You are encouraged to make straight line motions over circular motions during this portion of the drill. I hand the book to Buster and watch him mimic the motion.

“Do you feel that you have duplicated the motion?” I ask.

“Yes,” he replies.

“Good,” I acknowledge.

“I am going to make a motion with this book. I want you to watch the motion and then duplicate it,” I command.

I move the book to the left and then pull it back to my chest before handing the book to Buster. He duplicates the motion.

“Do you feel that you have duplicated the motion?” I ask.

“Yes,” he replies.

“Good,” I acknowledge.

“I am going to make a motion with this book. I want you to watch the motion and then duplicate it,” I command.

“I have a cognition,” Buster suggests.

“Okay,” I acknowledge.

“I realize that I have the ability to choose which path I take and which directions I go in life,” he cogs.

“Good,” I respond.

“Those are the EPs Liz. I know they are. We are going to be the first twins to get off Objective 2 in one session,” he claims.

“Dude, are you kidding me? We are really back to this? The EPs are not the same for everyone. No one in the history of Objective 2 has ever gotten off of it after one session. It’s not going to happen,” I laugh. Because Buster has had a cognition, we need to run it three more times without physical change before it reaches its flat point. We run it flat and then cycle back to part A of this Objective.

“Give me that hand,” I command.

He puts his right hand in mine.

“Thank you,” I acknowledge, while turning his right wrist with my left hand and placing his hand back onto his lap.

“Give me that hand,” I command.

“I have a cognition,” Buster suggests.

“Okay,” I acknowledge.

“I realize that drugs are handcuffs that stop us from being able to give our hands to anything else besides stealing and lying,” he cogs.

“Okay,” I acknowledge.

“Give me that hand,” I command.

“No,” he replies.

I reach over and grab his wrist with my left hand, pulling his right hand to my right hand.

“Thank you,” I acknowledge.

I return his hand to his lap.

“Give me that hand,” I command.

“You trying to hold my hand girl,” Buster jokes.

“Dude just give me your fucking hand,” I growl.

“Hey, Liz. Don’t disrespect your twin like that,” Makayla calls out.

What the fuck? How does she only hear and see what I do wrong, but never appears to be aware of his slimy antics and idiotic ways? I roll my eyes.

I reach for Buster’s wrist and place his hand in mine.

“Thank you,” I acknowledge.

I move his hand back to his lap. “I have a cog,” he states.

“Okay,” I acknowledge.

“I realize that everything we do in life is by choice. I can choose to give you my hand or I can chose not to give you my hand,” Buster cogs.

“Good,” I acknowledge.

“Okay guys let’s get the paperwork turned in. End your sessions,” Makayla instructs.

As I fill out the paperwork, my mind is racing with many thoughts. There is hostility in my heart and anger running through my veins. I absolutely despise Objectives. I hate Buster and I feel like Makayla doesn’t like me and has singled me out. I can feel myself losing control. Thank God this is the final session for today, but how am I going to survive tomorrow….
