EXCERPTS FROM AN INTERVIEW
WITH BILL THETFORD,
THETFORD: No. Bear in mind that at the beginning we didn't know exactly what was happening. So we asked questions of a personal nature and recorded the answers that Helen would receive. I would type these answers as part of the continuous process, no distinguishing them from the inner dictation that Helen was recording in her shorthand notebook. Later when we realized that this material was obviously not a part of the Course itself, we did indeed, delete it. It is true that there has been editing of capitalization, punctuation, paragraphing and section titles in the Text. However, these changes were minor and the Workbook and the Manual for Teachers also appear exactly as they were taken down by Helen.
This interview was conducted by James Bolen, Editor and Owner of
New Realities magazine. The magazine has since been sold and
is no longer in publication.
