The Philadelphia Doctorate Series Course Lectures (December 1952 — January 1953) 76 lectures.
The most renowned series in all of Ron's lectures, this is where the anatomy, potentials and behavior of the spirit are described and analyzed thoroughly. The thetan's relationship to the creation, maintenance and destruction of universes is laid out in lecture after lecture. The text for the course is Scientology: 8-8008 and lectures expand on each concept presented in the book. How one postulates matter, energy, space and time into existence and the factors that caused the thetan to lose that ability as well as the path to its restoration are explained in detail. The creative processing auditing technique is introduced with explanations and examples. In a word, here is Ron's codification of the upper reaches of the spirit's beingness and behavior, in essence, what Ron termed native state.
