Kaparot is a traditional Jewish religious ritual that takes place around the time of the High Holidays.
Scientology materials traditionally refer to the subject as the “preclear,” although auditors continue to use the meter well beyond the clear level.
The preclear holds a pair of cylindrical electrodes (“cans”) connected to the meter while the auditor asks the preclear a series of questions and notes both the verbal response and the activity of the meter.
The Catholic Encyclopaedia (1908) enjoined: “Superstition ought not to be confounded with religion, however much their history may be interwoven, nor magic, however white it may be, with a legitimate religious rite”.
