The next thing I'd like to take up is the definitions and words. Before we can understand the technology or study the technology of Scientology one must know the meanings of the words and we will be taking that up in very exact detail quite soon. I'd like to clear up the majority of the important words that you will need to understand to where you can follow along. So, this is a definition sheet:

Adjustment - functional and often transitory alteration, adaptation.

Alter-is-ness - the consideration which introduces change, and therefore time and persistence into an As-is-ness to obtain persistency.
Analytical mind - that part of a person's thinking machinery and memories over which he has relatively full control.
Analytical Mind - that portion of the mind which receives and retains experience data to compose and resolve problems and direct the organism along the 8 dynamics. It has differential ability and can think in similarities. It solves problems not by facsimiles in total, but by present time perception also.
Anchor point - anything from which to view or perceive, and also defines spaces, masses and particles.
Altitude - the trust and confidence a preclear has in his auditor, and also to the degree that he respects the
auditor and his judgement and is willing to follow directions of the auditor.
ARC break - the assignment of responsibility for a sudden drop in affinity, reality or communication.
As-is-ness - the condition of immediate creation without persistence and is the condition of existence which exists at the moment of creation and the moment of destruction and is different from other considerations in that it does not contain survival.

Blanketing is done to obtain an emotional impact or even to kill. It is strongest in sexual incidents where the thetan throws two MEST bodies together in the sexual act in order to experience their emotions. This sexual lust comes from the Halver.
