Versions available from lawofone.info
- “Original Version”: This version reintegrates the Book V material into the sessions from which it was originally taken. In this version, no other changes have been made to the text published by L/L Research.
- “Relistened Version”: The raw, unedited version produced by verifying the original version against copies of the original tapes. It contains some questions and answers not previously published, and it makes numerous, mostly minor, changes to Don’s questions and occasional, not-always-so-minor changes to Ra’s answers. Gaps in the audio are indicated by [brackets].
- “Lightly Edited Version”: The relistened version, edited minimally. It contains the answers from the relistened version, unedited except in these places. The questions are also from the relistened version, but they have been lightly edited for legibility. Gaps in the audio are not indicated, and the text for those gaps is as published in the original version.
