There seems to be some confusion  about what constitutes a RON'S Org, so I'm going to write some background  to clarify this.

The initials R-O-N-S are actually  an acronym and the full name of the organization is "Ron's Organization  and Network for Standard Tech". That was how the name came into being,  suggested by one of the trainees of Capt. Bill Robertson after he had  begun developing the upper bridge.

In the beginning, Capt. Bill  Robertson began to co-audit on NOTs, discovered the NOTS tech had some  altered importances and went on to develop the level we now know as Excalibur.(also  originally nick-named Super NOTs or Super 7) Excalibur completes the bridge  level known as NOTS and includes the OT Life Repair (equivalent to the  C of S OT 8), but does not use much of its technology.

Subsequently, he discovered  there were other levels of case to address, which showed up after each  level was complete on the case, and he went on to develop upper levels  up to 16, culminating in what was named the "Super Static Rundown".  At that point, he believed he had achieved caselessness, or the completion  of the audited part of the bridge, because he had a floating Tone Arm  that nothing would stop, for two months. He continued to make notes, observe  things and do research and then discovered there were other areas of case  to be dealt with. Subsequently those notes became part of what is known  as the Games Master Course. This course is somewhat like the Saint Hill  Special Briefing Course, in that it is a series of research notes and  covers the whole development of that particular level.

Subsequently, he found more  areas to be addressed and thus came about the Games Series Course, Games  Basics Course, and the four Source Operations Levels.

The final level on the bridge  was the "Viable Application of Source Training", abbreviated  to "VAST", and there was one more pilot level which about half  a dozen people actually did. This level concerned the body org and was  titled "VAST +". All of the levels above Excalibur, which begins  with a few audited sessions before Solo begins, are entirely Solo actions  unless Review is needed.

Additionally, CBR created several  C/S courses for the delivery of these upper levels. Firstly, an upper  level C/Sing course for levels up to III, then the Super Static C/S Course,  plus the Upper Level Review Course which encompassed all of the review  cycles needed to keep the person flowing on the upper bridge up to VAST.  Also, each level of the bridge has its own internship which is done when  the person has actually done the training on the bridge level and is solo  auditing on the level, at which point they can intern to deliver it.

Prerequisites to become a delivery  terminal for the RON'S Org bridge are that one must be at least a trained  Class IV auditor and C/S, then trained on Excalibur and started soloing  the level oneself, interning on Excalibur, plus training and interning  on the three C/S courses mentioned above. It was discovered in the early  days that to attempt to train somebody who had not gotten good lower bridge  training resulted in them not being able to handle the cases that presented  themselves and consequently they quit delivering or changed the tech.  I know of at least 11 people in this category.

Capt. Bill additionally ran  and had videoed two courses for Class IV auditors and C/Ses in order to  upgrade their skills and point out the importances in auditing and C/Sing.  He also put out a course called "Case Analysis & Programming  Course" for the C/Ses who were already complete on the Upper Level  Review Course and Super Static C/S Course.

A Data Series Evaluator's Course  was also created by him to fine-tune that which was presented as a Data  Series Evaluator's Course in the Church. It is available from RON'S Org  terminals who have done it.

A point to note is that CBR  handwrote all of the upper levels except Tech Briefings that were taped.  If one of the early trainees wrote something CBR thought should be included  in the tech materials he OKed it with an initial and added it to the data.  Since then many of his trainees have transcribed tapes and typed up his  handwritten material to save space or make the material easier to read  for students. The original CBR-trained Case Supervisors have handwritten  copies of everything, and it has been an unwritten agreement among our  C/Ses since the beginning that if another C/S didn't have access to their  materials, e.g. because they were travelling, that other C/Ses would help  out by getting copies to them so as not to interfere with the delivery  of the bridge.

One poorly trained C/S, since  left the body, altered quite a lot of the levels from Excal to 16 and  enabled that material to be placed where it could be accessed by untrained  people - I believe it was on the Internet at one stage. I inspected some  of it and found that the key part of each level, which was the method  used to access the charge of the level, had been altered so as to be incomplete  and only partially workable. I encountered several of this person's pcs,  and one supposed C/S trainee, who were attempting to apply it this way,  and it wasn't getting the results it should. I like to go by the statistics  - if we had proved by result that it could be given out to tech-trained  people without specific training on it and they could and would apply  it we would be very happy, because we are totally swamped with demand  as it is and would love the assistance! But the results don't show that  this works - in my experience some highly tech-trained people who have  gotten hold of it and attempted to apply it have had some results, but  not the kind of results the fully trained RON'S Org terminals get. However,  people who have had access to it and got it partially right can be trained  to deliver it the way Capt Bill intended, but they have to be pan-determined  enough and free enough of service facsimiles to be able to say "Oops,  I don't have it yet, and it's valuable, so I'm going to train on it properly."  Someone who is really OT has no trouble admitting when they make a mistake.

To resume my story here, various  auditors and C/Ses did their training on the RON'S Org bridge starting  in the early 1980's. Many things were learned and corrections were made  and various things were discovered.

In the beginning, Capt. Bill  thought that all he had to do to correct the errors in the NOTS was to  simply make a taped briefing, so he gave a talk of about 3 hours, to the  people who were soloing NOTS and the NOTS auditors. Having done so, he  expected them to start applying the discoveries he had made, but that  turned out to not be the case. And when you hear the tape it is easy to  understand why. I clearly recall the first time I listened to the first  technical briefing of Excalibur, even with the transcript to refer to,  thinking something like, "My God, how the devil do you apply this?!"  - despite the fact that I was a very well experienced and trained auditor  at that time. (It took me 6 weeks full time to train to deliver Excalibur  and the SuperStatic C/S Course.) So we discovered that the essence of  the levels cannot be duplicated without personal interaction with the  trainer. It is also mandatory that the person delivering it has to actually  do it himself. . There is no other way to get case reality. Apart from  the fact that once their students are ready for the next level, the C/S  needs to be trained and soloing on that level to be ready to deliver it  to them!

So over the 16 years that I  have been delivering the RON'S Org bridge I have seen many situations  to do with the delivery of this tech. One of the first observations is  that technical terminals given the material without proper training have  simply set it aside and said, "Very interesting. I'll look at that  sometime." One technical twosome read the whole materials, succeeded  in getting a little bit of it done but subsequently came and trained on  it because there was no way they could figure out how to do it completely.  It's not that Capt. Bill is unclear; it's just that there is such a wealth  of data that is in the "incredible" realm that you have to experience  it and absorb it to fully understand how to apply it.

Excalibur handles other-determined  case, that is a whole body of stuff that has to be dealt with. And the  technology for delivering Excalibur basically divides the case up like  a pie and you take out one slice at a time until the pie is gone. If you  dive around picking out cherries and nuts and bits of this and bits of  that here and there, you don't get the whole pie. There are a number of  EPs to the Excalibur level, and all of those need to be handled.

So as the years went on a mini-hierarchy  developed in the RON'S Orgs which involved who had been trained by Capt.  Bill and who was trained by someone trained by Capt. Bill, and if you  are actually planning to have RON'S Org bridge training it is smart to  find out who your C/S and/or auditor was trained by so you actually know  their skill level. (You might even want to ask for their certificates.  The original certs issued by CBR were black, with his handwriting in gold  pen.)

The terminology that developed  was that somebody trained personally by Capt. Bill Robertson on the RON'S  Org bridge is called a first-generation RON'S Org C/S. Somebody trained  by a first-generation C/S is called a second-generation RON'S Org C/S.  And somebody trained by that C/S is called a third-generation RON'S Org  C/S and so on. Of course there are some complications in that some C/Ses  trained partly with Capt. Bill and then subsequently when he left the  body they then trained on the remainder of the bridge usually with a first-generation  RON'S Org C/S who had trained with him. It is also significant the degree  of lower bridge training they have also, because it is very useful to  have a thorough grounding in the technology as delivered by the Church  of Scientology even though it became very squirrelled.

As touched on above, there  was also a situation where some people became renegades and splintered  off from the RON'S Org, and additionally some have altered Capt. Bill's  technology to an unworkable format. This has occurred with the bridge  levels up to 16, with the individual who wrote up his own versions of  how to access what to run on the levels up to 16. He also told me he had  trouble on a couple of the levels himself, and after I had personally  read these alterations I can vouch for the fact that they are not workable  in getting a complete product.

The individual concerned has  since dropped the body, and unfortunately what he did set the RON'S Org  in the United States back about ten years as far as I can establish. He  contributed many wonderful things in his lifetime, but due to a number  of misunderstandings and inadequate training that he had, because Capt.  Bill never trained him personally, he perpetrated a number of less-than-wise  actions upon the integrity of the RON'S Org technologies. Then he subsequently  trained individuals who claim to be RON'S Org trained, but who are not  and probably don't even realize it, and the products are not what they  should be. I repeat, we are really happy if people apply this stuff and  get the results that they should and if anybody can take it all and read  it all and do it right and get the results that we do, we're really happy  about that too. We get to be unhappy when it's knowingly altered or applied  by somebody who doesn't know it's been altered, and then they complain  that they don't get the results that are claimed for it, but don't make  any attempt to get corrected.

In my experience I found that  people attempting to do it themselves in the field, would be incomplete  on Excalibur, or would stall on Phoenix and never get going again, or  would have problems with OT 13, and often 14, 15, and 16. And it was almost  too late to correct. We have also had problems with people who have read  the entirety of those levels and are basically acting case-wise as if  a stampede of buffaloes has run over them. And if still on the bridge,  taking way too long compared to people exposed to one level at a time.  My experience with people at lower levels who have read tech they are  not ready to run is they are harder to audit and require a lot more time  compared with those who haven't. I have specifics, but will not make them  known unless it is in a more private communication.

An analogy is, if you are a  business and you advertise an amazing sale and have people flocking around  your front doors and sleeping in the streets at night waiting to come  in in the morning, when you open the doors they will practically stampede  the store flat. And if they don't get what they want they will probably  be mad. It is the same thing with reading several upper bridge levels,  possibly accessing the material to be run, and then instead of a controlled  stream of case getting restimulated and being run in an orderly fashion,  you get the stampede. I have seen this occur in a number of cases, and  I have seen reports of it in a number of cases, and I know that at this  moment it does not appear to work to handle the charge terminatedly. The  case needs to be handled on a gradient, piece by piece, otherwise overwhelm  and confusion occur. Reading about several areas of highly restimulative  material can be like plugging yourself in to a number of power outlets  simultaneously. And each case is different, and some students can handle  more than others - which is where the skill, judgment and experience of  the C/S comes in.

I am aware that many people  feel that there is an attempt to keep the tech under wraps by labeling  it confidential, just as the Church did, and for some kind of financial  monopoly, but believe me, we are swamped already with people wanting this  technology and we do not have enough delivery terminals to adequately  handle the demand. (I personally would have a higher income, shorter hours,  and way less responsibility if I went and did a regular job - I am a very  capable consultant.) CBR was way less fixated on confidentiality, but  he correctly identified the areas that could cause over-restimulation  and spoke freely about the rest.

Opening a case area without  being properly prepared and trained will result in overwhelm as I have  stated above. There is no intent to deny people their way out. We want  them to do it correctly, and in proper gradient order. I would be very  happy if people could read it and apply it and do a thorough job. However,  that appears to not be the case. Complete preparation by correct case  analysis and thorough review auditing when necessary, combined with proper  training and C/Sing will get the results.

I have seen the most extraordinary  results from the upper bridge technology developed by Capt. Bill. I have  trained people to deliver it and have seen amazing results from their  students also. This technology is very, very workable and opens up areas  to be handled that have only up to now been touched upon. Massive amounts  of tone arm action are available by cleaning these areas up thoroughly.  There was lot of spiritual attack on delivering these areas, because there  are still those in the game who would prefer beings to be controlled and  not free. Implanters and enslavers didn't just give up and go away just  because LRH developed a technology to undo their work.

What we like to do is watch  the statistics, and if it isn't consistently working doing it a certain  way, it needs to be corrected.

Many of the RON'S Org terminals,  because of attacks from the church and from individuals in the independent  field who do not understand fully what is being offered, have chosen to  go very underground and not be accessible on ordinary communication lines.  They continue to work away, freeing beings, and we are very grateful they  are there as we, the ones who have chosen to stick our heads up, let people  take potshots at us. One day, hopefully, the "Hidden RON'S Orgs"  too will be able to come out of the closet and make what they are doing  known to all. In the meantime, we who are out in the open, unless we decide  that the safeguarding of tech requires that we too retreat, continue to  watch and see how spiritually aware people get, and how able they are  to differentiate the truth from the falsities. Putting ourselves out in  the open somewhat helps us to establish who has still got some learning  to do.

We hope this is going to be  a learning experience with many wonderful results, and we will certainly  do our best to make sure that all who come in contact with us have that  rewarding learning experience.

The answer to what is a RON'S  Org is that it has at least one individual trained in Capt. Bill's technology  by either a first-generation RON'S Org C/S or second or third or however  far out it goes, but that they actually have been properly and thoroughly  trained in the technology of delivering and C/Sing the RON'S Org bridge.  The C/S at first will only be able to deliver to Excalibur, but they will  have to have done the Super Static C/S Course and Upper Level Review Course  in order to qualify to be a RON'S Org C/S. They are the Senior C/S for  their area, and continue to be C/Sed and trained by their senior RON'S  Org C/S on their upper levels as they move on up the bridge. People working  with that person then become part of a RON'S Org. They are the Senior  C/S for their org and when experienced enough can train C/Ses and will  be their Senior C/S until those trainees are fully interned and qualified.

A RON'S Org is not a RON'S  Org if it does not have a trained and qualified C/S. If an individual  says he is a RON'S Org C/S or on RON'S Org lines, ask what bridge level  he is on, who is his Senior C/S and trainer, and how much experience he  has.

One of the things that is probably  not generally known among ex-church going Scientologists and Independent  Field practitioners is that the majority of RON'S Orgs' students and pcs  have never been in a Church of Scientology. They come in and get their  clearing and training from the bottom up, and are way less resistive and  difficult to handle than people who have been messed up by the suppressive  environment in the church. So the RON'S Orgs don't really NEED the hassle  of trying to deal with the enturbulation and H E & R (Human Emotion  and Reaction) of individuals who have been in C of S and who are still  trying to figure out if the subject works ( ie, in a condition of Doubt  regarding the Tech itself) or if LRH has any credibility or not. But,  there are still many people who love the Tech and respect and understand  LRH and the size of the job he tackled, and who have poured their heart  and soul into the church and subject for many years, that upon recognizing  the condition of the Church and how management has been taken over by  those of evil intent (refer Sector 9 book on the German Free Zone site),  are now out, and wondering how to get on with their spiritual freedom.  Some RON'S Orgs, are willing to assist them, despite C of S attacks and  attempts to suppress. Others continue their work quietly, lots of production  and not much time for chitchat.

The ideal scene in all this,  would be for people who have been partially trained or perhaps not adequately  trained in the technology to actually upgrade their skills by getting  proper training from a qualified RON'S Org C/S and becoming full-fledged  RON'S Orgs so that we enhance the people who've shown the interest and  want to get that technology or perhaps have read alter-ised versions of  it and attempted to apply it themselves. Anybody who discovers that their  C/S is in that category should encourage their C/S to get properly trained  so that their delivery can be all that it can be by the results that we  already know can be obtained from proper application of the correct technology.  We need to apply "Keeping Scientology Working" to safeguard  the correct technology for future generations.

Senior C/Ses with RON'S Org  then train other C/Ses to do the bulk of the routine C/Sing so that they  can just focus on the tricky cases or the review C/Sing and that way the  group expands.

And now some information for  anyone who is not aware of it, to outline my qualifications for writing  this article. I was personally trained by Capt. Bill Robertson to deliver  the RON'S Org bridge up to the level called "VAST+." I did this  over a period of several years, starting in 1986, in four individual visits  to Europe to train and apprentice with him, totalling five months full  time training in all. I have spent many hours with Capt. Bill absorbing  data like a sponge. (I have always been good at that, I rarely had to  study at school.) That was probably one of the most valuable aspects of  the training. Bill used to travel from center to center all over Europe,  usually on a large motorcycle, and spent time in each center, training  and checking people out and C/Sing. He covered a lot of ground in those  days. Things have changed, but the basics of the technology that he developed  to take us further up the bridge than the Church was ever able to, are  still available.

One of the things that set  me so firmly on the CBR route is that while in the church I encountered  a number of extremely strange case phenomena and perceptions that no one  had any explanation for. One of these perceptions while on my OT 3 at  Flag was a massive realization about the nature of the MEST Universe that  flattened me for several days with its overwhelming magnitude. When I  got with Captain Bill, all the things I had run into were already documented  in his briefings and when I told him all about it he understood exactly  what I had perceived - most of which was from levels from Phoenix and  above. This accompanied by the fact that he was training people to deliver  his upper levels were compelling reasons for me to make sure I obtained  and mastered this universe-changing tech for myself and my groups.

None of the above is meant  to imply that we don't make mistakes or are some kind of "mecca for  technical perfection", a claim that was made by Flag despite the  logic that "Absolutes are unobtainable". The thing is, as LRH  said, we are attempting to "build a world with broken straws",  so failing to at least do something is probably worse than doing something  badly, as long as one corrects it as one goes so it can be done better,  which is what ethics formulas are for. And we are all attempting it without  the massive hierarchy and resources of the church which has so badly betrayed  so many. So it seems only logical to do it with the best training we can  manage, not to "throw the baby out with the bathwater" and reduce  training to such a minimum that we lose our tech results. I have the utmost  admiration for anyone who is still reaching for and applying the tech  rather than just giving up and waiting to die. But I want to see them  fully empowered, by getting ALL of it, and not just a pale shadow of what  it can be. And the upper levels delivered by RON'S Org are not available  in the church, and are not like anything they deliver. NOTs was developed  as a correction, and was never intended to be a bridge level in itself.  Excalibur, fully applied to those who are ready for it, is the development  that can complete handling what was termed the "NOTs case",  to a full EP - the case doesn't come back.

A final note for those, especially  delivery terminals, who seem to have considerations and counter-intention  about paying much, if anything, for training to deliver services. It is  a very short-sighted and illogical view of it, because you will recoup  your financial outlay very quickly if you do an excellent job. One of  the problems I observed in the Independent Field a long time ago was that  if a person is delivering full-time, and they cut their fees to the bone,  or don't charge at all, they can then end up doing a skimpy job because  they are now looking for new clients as a source of income to catch up  with their overheads and expenses that haven't been covered. They also  then can't afford to pay for help to handle the myriad org board posts  that they end up wearing, which makes them more overloaded and less able  to deliver a good product. Then people don't come back for services, and  so it goes. We have gone that route, and we quit doing that awhile ago.  I personally paid thousands of dollars for my training, and it was worth  way more than what I paid. Our public are pretty much up on the Havingness  scale at "Create" and "Contribute", rather than "must  be contributed to", etc. And therefore they more and more exchange  back to other beings in the game as they move up the Bridge. Those whose  havingness may not quite be ready for this will continue to play in the  game as they have chosen.
