Pan-determinism is the highest state, where you control both sides of a game. ‘Pan’ is Greek for all or every, as in ‘Pan-European’ (all European nations) or ‘Panchromatic’ (all colors of the spectrum). Pan-determinism, then, is making the decisions and applying control both for yourself and for the other. The game of life necessitates lack of knowledge and an opponent you do not control. Hence, in pan-determinism, you do not participate in the game. To enjoy a role in the game, you must descend from pan-determinism to self-determinism. In pan-determinism, you are at a high level of responsibility, viewing simultaneously all parties involved in a situation. (C&I, Ch. 1, Anatomy of Control…)

P/C’s file – 1) After the session, the listener should fill out a Session Report, in which he writes down a summary of what took place in the session. The listener files this form and the worksheets he wrote during the session in the P/C’s file, for use in planning the next sessions. (LP, Ch. 6, Recall Processes)
2) If the listener works with an expert who guides him in delivering processes, the P/C’s file will be given to the expert, so that he can see what happened in the session. (LP, Ch. 6. Comm Cycle in Listening)

Particle – The actual Communication is a physical particle such as sound waves, noise, a note, a smartphone message, an email, or sometimes an object we send to the other person. (LP, Ch. 2, Comm in Full; CCM, Ch. 1, The Comm Formula)

PerceptionsOur mind comprises countless recordings that we generate and store every moment of our life. These inputs are multi-dimensional pictures of all that we experience or happens to us. The mental recordings are accurate duplications of each perception that we absorb through our senses of the environment, therefore we also call them ‘facsimiles’. Our mind immediately files these sensory perceptions in the sequence we recorded them. (LP, Ch. 4, The Aware Mind)

Personal power – The condition a person is in when progressing confidently and serenely towards attaining his goals. (The author)

Physical TraumaPhysical Trauma involves acute physical pain accompanied by loss of consciousness. When a person gets a strong blow, he faints, loses consciousness. This is a ‘Physical Trauma’. When a person undergoes an operation, the anesthesiologist first knocks him unconscious so that he does not feel the pain. The doctor initiates a ‘trauma’, with full unconsciousness, so that he can do his job without the patient feeling the pain. (LP, Ch. 4, The Reactive Mind)
2) Trauma is an incident of the person receiving a powerful physical blow causing loss of consciousness, full or partial, and physical pain. (LP, Ch. 6, The Art of Listening)

Plans – Plans are the steps a person takes, the short-term action. The plans a person formulates are the steps toward accomplishing his long-term goal and his shorter-term purposes, according to the policy rules he has adopted. (LP, Ch. 2, States of Existence)

Point of Release – During listening, release occurs when running an incident, as the charge attached to a chain of incidents is released. When charge releases, the P/C feels relief, is content, laughs, has realizations about life and a new understanding about the incident being run. (LP, Ch. 6, The Art of Listening)

Policy – Policy is a system of rules a man embraces regulating his conduct, to achieve his goal and purposes. Policy is the rules I adopt based on my life experience, the conduct that forwards my goal. (LP, Ch. 2, Ladder of Accomplishment)

Postulate is that self-determined thought which starts, stops or changes past, present or future efforts. It is a conclusion, decision or solution that is generated by self. A postulate is an act of concluding, deciding or resolving a problem or to set a pattern for the future or to nullify a pattern of the past. (C&I, Ch. 4, C&I Drill 4)

Power – Power is control, the ability to direct things, to act with certainty. Power means to be stable, at a location a person chooses for himself from which he cannot be shaken by others. From that location a person chooses, he or she is able to move things, to lead and direct. (LP, Ch.2, The Game of Life)

Power Triangle – 1) This triangle has these three components: Knowledge, Responsibility and Control. Through a step-by-step increase of each component of KRC, the person will gradually raise his power, widen his circle of influence, strengthen his control over his own destiny, and progress toward achieving his goals. (LP, Ch. 2, The Power Triangle)
2) A close observation of power reveals that it consists, in fact, of three factors which interact as if the three points of a triangle. When well understood and properly employed, they take us to higher abilities and a position of power in any area. The triangle’s three components are: Knowledge, Responsibility, Control; together: KRC. (C&I, Ch. 2, The Power Triangle)

Pre-clear – 1) The person receiving the process is called the ‘Pre-clear’, also P/C, because he is steadily progressing toward the State of Clear. (LP, Ch. 5, Life Confront Process)
2) The person who strives to improve himself. We avoid the word ‘patient’, because the pre-clear does not want someone else to take care of him but fulfills an active role of learning and doing. (LP, Ch. 6, The Art of Listening)

Problem – The clash between two opposing forces creates a problem. Two opposing goals create a problem. Man survives when he successfully resolves problems he encounters in his life. (LP, Ch. 1, Our Drives in Action)

Process – A process is the application of the knowledge we have gained; it is aimed at changing the condition of the person to whom we deliver the process. Before delivering the process, we learn and drill its delivery. (LP, Ch. 5, Life Confront Process)

Process End ResultEach process we run has a purpose we want to accomplish. The End Result for every process is: 1) The pre-clear is high on the Emotions Scale, experiences relief, is happy and content; 2) The P/C has achieved a new understanding concerning his life. We call this realization ‘Cognition’; 3) The P/C is aware of an improved ability or that a difficulty has disappeared, or a barrier is gone. (LP, Ch. 6, The Art of Listening) 

Psychosomatic Illnesses – Physical illnesses whose origin is some disrupted mental state. Reactivation is the source of psychosomatic illnesses. (LP, Ch.4, Fixed Ideas)

Purposes – Purposes are the smaller goals, the milestones you set on the way to accomplishing your basic goal. (LP, Ch. 2, Ladder of Accomplishment)
