I have posted this document before on A.R.S, and now I post it here. ======= At the link below there is a big and very important document I wrote on free.it.religioni.scientology that deal with Scientology Statistic System (as described in the chapters 4 and 6 of the book INTRODUCTION TO SCIENTOLOGY ETHICS) in depth. It contains some graphs. --- https://groups.google.com/forum/#!topic/free.it.religioni.scientology/ciTUE6woKH8 --- Anybody can copy o publish this work or a part of it, only if the author (me) is not omitted. Any possible modification must be clearly indicated as such. This document is very important to understand the various errors and gaps that are inside the Scientology Statistic System and to know why this system is UNRELIABLE. It should be known from every Scientologist or Indipendent Scientologist all over the world. The document is in Italian and I ask that somebody translate it in English (and possibly in other languages). I cannot do it because this translation may take many months (or one year) for me, ALSO because I do not know very well English. ================ Anyway, here there are some important points of the document written briefly. GAP #1 It is not specified how to establish, on a graph, the inclination of the line that shows the production of a week. It can be done only with sight or with a goniometer? The method is uncertain. GAP #2 The Scientology book do not indicate the value of the angle of the lines that represent the five ethics conditions. I have misured such angles. GAP #3 (SERIOUS) Is not given the concept of AREA or SECTOR of statistic condition. A statistic condition has an area o sector that represents it. GAP #4 Is not given the concept of EDGE OF A SECTOR of a statistic condition. Every sector of a statistic condition has two edges: the upper edge and the lower edge. GAP #5 It is difficult or impossible determine from Scientology text both edges of every statistic condition. To know BOTH edges is necessary. GAP #6 It is not specified in which place of the sectors, the lines given in the book representing the five conditions (Non Existence, Danger, Emergency, etc.) are situated. GAP #7 It is not specified any method to determine the edges of the sectors of the statistic conditions. ======= Now here it is a graph with all the Reference Lines (that represent the statistic conditions), the value of the angles, the borderlines between sectors, and the External Edges (edges that cannot be passed). See the italian documents for more details. ======= [As the editor of ESMB cuts spaces between commas, etc. in the copy/past operation, the copy/past of the graph doesn't work. So, see the graph in the original post in A.R.S. You may see other graphs in the italian post linked above. ] ======= Now it follows the errors contained in the Scientology procedure to determine the the values that represent a ghaph (ERROR #1 to #5). This procedure calculate: 1. The lower value of a graph. 2. The higer value of a graph. 3. The value of each segment conteined in the y-axis, called "scale" in the Scientology text. ERROR #1 It is situad in the step 1 of the Scientology procedure. It is based on a PERSONAL ESTIMATE, so it is imprecise. Different persons may give different values, and this may produce different values of scale. Different value of scale may produce different inclinations of the graph lines (except for horizontal lines). And different inclinations of lines may determine different assignations of condition for these lines. ERROR #2 and GAP #8 In the step 1 of the 'correct example' of the Scientology procedure, the number of days to examine is imprecise. Are examinated the production values of the 'past 6 months'. But the period of time 'past 6 months' may vary at least from 181 to 184 days. This may determine a number of production values to examinate not constant, depending from wich day of the year it starts the estimation. The ERROR is in the phrase 'past 6 months' where the number of days is imprecise. The GAP is that is not specified from which day of a week start to examine the 'past 6 months'. This may vary too the number of production values to examinate. So, the number of thursdays (days examinated in Scientology) of the 'past 6 months' may vary from 25 to 27. But, as the Scientology procedure, any value examinated may determine the lower value of the graph. If the lower value of the graph change casually, it may change also casually the value of scale. And if it change the value of scale, the assignation of the condition may vary casually. ERROR #3 In the step 1 of the 'correct example', the value determined is rounded off, probably to make the calculations easier. But a rounded off value is an altered value, that may alteres the value of the 'scala'. A changed scala may vary the inclination of the lines (except for the horizontal lines). And this may vary the assignation of the conditions. The rounding off must be eliminated. ERROR #4 It is similar to error #1. The step 2 of the Scientology procedure is based on a PERSONAL ESTIMATE. So it has the same problem specified in ERROR #1. ERROR #5 In the Scientology procedure, it is suggested to use "easy values" for the 'scala' as <<5, 10, 25, 50, 100>>. This is a changing of the original value that may cause unknown changing of the inclination of the lines of the graph (except for the horizontal lines). And a changed inclinations may determine changed assignations of conditions for the lines. This change must not be done. ERROR #6 There is a rule that says that when a line go out of upper side of the graph, it is needed to calculate again the value of the 'scala'. This can be correct in same cases ma it is wrong in others. It is wrong in the case of an external favourable factor but unusual, basically not due to the staff or persons that are producing. See italian document for more details. ERROR #7 There is a rule that says, about the x-axis, 'try not to exceed 3 months'. The error is that it is allowed to vary the time period represented in the graph. As the Scientology procedure for the drawing the basic graph, this may vary casually the 'scale' and so it may vary casually the assignations of conditions of one or more lines. See italian document for more details. ERROR #8 The error is that the Scientology Statistic System do not considers the changing of the working situation. For example, if after having calculated and drawed the initial basic graph, the number of persons in the staff increase to 5 to 10, why keep the upper and lower value of the graph the same? It is excepted different values. And different upper and lower values does it means to calculate again the value of 'scale'. But in Scientology this is not considered. ERROR #9 The condition formulas are fixed and do not work gradually. One degree more or less on the line of the graph may determine, in some cases, the change of the assignement of the condition and so a different execution of a formula. Just 1 degree. This not gradual change of actions does not make sense. The solution is to rewrite the condition formulas in a way to work gradually according to the inclination of the line. ERROR #10 The error is in one of the most important principles of the Scientology Statistic System: to determine the actions (the formula) to improve or keep high the production, it must be considered ONLY THE INCLINATION of the last line on the graph (excepted for the Power condition). The error is that this principle does not consider the USUAL PRODUCTION of a job. EXAMPLE: We have two staff members that hand out leaflets. One work with a wrong method and usually hand out 3000 leaflets per week. The other work with the correct method and usually hand out 7000 leaflets per week. The working conditions are the same for them. If the persons with the wrong method hands out one week 2800 leaflets and the following week 3400, it may be assigned the condition of "Normal" or "Abundance" only because the line is rising. If the persons with the correct method hands out one week 7200 leaflets and the following week 6700, it may be assigned the condition of "Emergency" or lower only because the line is falling. So according to the Scientology Statistic System, the staff member that produce more is in the worst condition. This system does not make sense. The usual production of a job must be considered. erni.
