    In 1980, I spoke with a "tech terminal" at AOLA and was told that the old OT levels, above OT 3, were no more. Those who were mid-cycle on these actions, however, were allowed to complete those actions.

    It was Hubbard who had butchered the middle Grade Chart in 1978, and it was Hubbard who dropped the old OT levels above OT 3.

    If you read his 'From Clear to Eternity', he obviously intended NOTs to be a very long (years) level.

    Doing old OT 4 without first doing the old Clearing Course may be problematic, as OT 4 involves the Clearing Course Implants.

    If these "Independent Scientologists" really want to revive the old Grade Chart, they're going to have to re-institute that Grade Chart (including PP, R6EW, and CC), then add NOTs after OT 3.

    Then old OT levels 4, 5, 6, and 7 after NOTs.

    I'm not sure what difference it will make though, as the old upper OT levels didn't make OTs either. I suppose they think that NOTs will remove the "final barrier to OT," etc.

    One drawback is that the old (pre-1978) Grade Chart had Scientologists nicely en-tranced. And it was the perfect "solvent" for the "glue" of the psychological-political operation of Scientology.

    So, bringing it back, at least to some extent, may serve to strengthen the scio-trance.

    At the same time, the amount of unavoidable fiddling with the "tech," required of anyone re-constituting the Grade Chart, which was mangled by Hubbard, may serve, to some extent, to weaken the scio-trance.

    If the pattern of many decades manifests, most of these folks won't be Scientologists of any kind in a few months or a few years.

    Of course, they don't realize that yet. :)
