    completely relaxed and self determined

    Hubbard is cited (p. 49) as noting, “it takes about fifteen hours to bring a person into a completely relaxed and Self-Determined state of mind regarding orders.”

    In the quoted sentence, which does completely modify,relaxed or relaxed and Self-Determined?

    Re: completely relaxed and self determined

    I would say it modifies both "relaxed" and "self-determined". There is no reason to capitalise "self".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: completely relaxed and self determined

    The term 'self-determined' seems to me to be scientologist pyscho-babble.


    Not a scientologist.
