"That which isn't admired tends to persist."

Level Four of Standard Clearing Technology covers the auditing of non-survival considerations and ideas. You could say the maxim for this level is, "that which isn't admired tends to persist"; and this other quote from R. Hubbard, "admiration is so strong its absence alone permits persistence". The non-survival considerations taken up on ST 4 are usually not subject to much admiration. But you will find  they surrender and evaporate magically when the auditor, using his good comm cycle and his close observation of the Auditor's Code, goes to work.  All these non-survival postulates, including  'make wrong' and 'insisting upon own rightness' in the teeth of all evidence to the opposite, seem so deeply rooted due to the lack of admiration. Using good basic auditing and the data and technology of ST 4 the auditor wins - and so does the pc.

Grade 4.  On this Level the theory of the processes of Grade 4 is covered and it is expected of the students to co-audit with each other to Grade 4 release.

Service Computations. This is a type of fixed idea held by the being, that causes him a lot of troubles and problems in handling life. The theory of Service Computations (service facsimiles) is covered in depth and the full Service Computation RD is included as part of Grade 4.

Fixated Purpose Rundown, (FPRD). Besides Grade four we have included all the data needed to be able to audit the Fixated Purpose RD. This Rundown was originally released in 1984 as False Purpose Rundown™ and has proven itself to be a very effective and radical type of auditing. It builds basically on Confessional tech of ST Level 2, but takes it one giant step further to be able to eradicate the factors behind repeated messes a person gets himself into  and repeated overts and withholds he may commit. Since the theory and skills needed ties in very well with Service Computations we have included it here on Level 4.

"Way to Happiness" Auditing. This is a complete RD that can be done after Recall Drug RD. It is based on a booklet and a moral code. The rules of the moral code have carefully been crafted as to be rules for good and ethical survival. The basic idea is to have the pc read the rules, one by one, and peel off any false data, traumatic incidents, disagreements and considerations coming to view and handle them with auditing. As a result the pc is now capable of breaking with immoral conduct and adopt a more pro-survival and moral attitude. Thus it fits in with finding non-survival considerations and the breaking of bad habits, the main theme of Level 4. It can however be audited early on.
