From the tek dictionary:
ONLY ONE, 1. if an individual can discover that he is only playing
on the first dynamic and that he belongs to no other team it is
certain that this individual will lose for he has before him seven
remaining dynamics. And the first dynamic is seldom capable of
besting by itself all the remaining dynamics. In Scn we call this
condition the "only one." Here is self-determinism in the guise of
selfish-determinism and here is an individual who will most
certainly be overwhelmed. To enjoy life one must be some part
of life. (PAB 84) 2. just above zero on the tone scale. An
individual must have no effect on self and total effect on
everything and everybody else. Now that is the category of only
one. This person can never communicate on a team basis.
(5707C25) 3. you can look at any person who is being dishonest
or who is upsetting his environment or who is getting people
into trouble all the time. You could look at that person and the
actuality is he has no reality on his fellow man. He doesn't know
they live. That's a very low-toned thing we call "only one." And
when they get into that then they are able to do most anything.
All criminals are in this bracket. (ASMC 2, 5506C03) 4. the
preclear has gotten into a state, ordinarily, where he is the only
one who can grant beingness, but he has so long restrained
other people from granting life to things that he himself will no
longer grant any life to things. (COHA, p.56)
