A lecture given on
26 June 1950

Common in this Society

This lecture is about hypnosis.

Hypnosis is a subject which every auditor should know, not so that he can use it-although
occasionally in the treatment of psychotics it is beneficial and renders the patient accessible-
but because one will find quite commonly in the reactive mind sessions of hypnotism. These
sessions can be extremely insidious since the hypnotist in his patter commonly employs
mechanisms which are hand-in-glove with the things the reactive mind dearly loves to clutch to
its bosom. One of the things that a hypnotic session will do is disappear entirely from
conscious recall, so much so that the person is not aware of having been hypnotized.

That is done by the simple mechanism of installing before the session is concluded a forgetter
mechanism in which the hypnotist says, "You will now forget everything which I have told
you during this session and you will have no memory of it." The hypnotist will then go on
talking for a few minutes and then "awaken" the patient, which blots out the session,
particularly if this form of it is used: "You will have no memory of what has occurred here,"
which is standard patter.

The next thing it does is install a demon circuit. This is all very common and standard; we
recently ran into a case of it, and it was quite baffling for over an hour. The demon circuit later
showed up in the case with a standard hypnotic remark in full sonic with considerable
volume-"You can remember all this in present time." Now that is standard patter with a
hypnotist who is using regression in amnesia trance: "You can remember all this in present
time." It has the most remarkable effect of pulling the suggestion right along with the patient
and also thrusting up into present time everything which the session has restimulated. It would
not be very desirable to have birth, for instance, thrown into present time, since the hypnotist
may have nicked birth.

In fact, one could drive a person close to insane by dropping him into amnesia trance and
telling him, "Now, everything which has ever happened to you which has caused you any pain
can be recalled by you in present time." It has the effect of moving the entire reactive bank into
present time thus turning the mind wrong side out. The person will exist after that with the
reactive mind rather than the analytical mind as his closest contact.

Pleasure moments in such a wise can become utterly obliterated and nothing but painful
moments will remain in recollection. If you combine this suggestion with the content of a
reactive mind, it can become very disturbing to a patient.

If we move back a little earlier in the hypnotic session, we may find the demon circuit which
says, "You can only hear my voice telling you to go to sleep. You can only hear the sound of
my voice. You are aware of nothing else but the sound of my voice." That's standard patter.
That sets up a demon circuit.

Then he continues, "You want to do what I am telling you to do. You can hear my voice telling
you to do this. You can't hear anything else." Of course he actually means this in a rational
sense to include the disturbances in the form of noise in the environment, but the way it lies
there is in a very literal sense, that only his voice can be heard. His intent may be very good but
the effect is to install a demon circuit.

After that a person has an added "stream of consciousness"-a vocalization which goes along
with him. He may not have recognized that it suddenly came into being with the.hypnotic

treatment or parlor trick or stage exhibition, since that exhibition or trick or treatment may be
entirely occluded from his memory.

"Go to sleep" is bad enough, and that is in plenitude at the beginning of a hypnotic session.
Another phrase they use is "Now, you lie back and be quiet and entirely relaxed," which has a
tendency to depress the person on the time track. So a hypnotic session can be very scrambling
to the reactive bank.

For example, we ask A, "Have you ever been hypnotized?"

He says, "No. It's been tried several times but nobody ever succeeded in hypnotizing me."
Well, if we accept this as a blunt answer and accept its validity, we are overlooking the 100 to 1
chance that it did succeed and that he did not know because he was told to forget. Therefore,
the information that someone tried it on him is an excellent clue, but it also may be a clue to
something else. It may have been tried on him and it may have been very successful much
earlier in his life.

Another mechanism of the hypnotist is to say, "No one else will be able to hypnotize you,"
which would give us the person who is unhypnotizable. Of course a large percentage of people
cannot be hypnotized, which is a severe limitation, fortunately, upon hypnotic therapy; it can
only be worked on a relatively few people.

It may also mean that he was hypnotized earlier and told that nobody else would ever be able to
hypnotize him, and that he must now forget what has occurred. So the whole incident of
having been hypnotized disappears, and later when someone comes along and tries to
hypnotize him he is null on the subject.

When we try to recover a hypnotic session we have to know the patter of a hypnotist. I don't
want you to go to sleep under this but I am going to tell you roughly what you will find.

The hypnotist will seat the person in a chair or have them lie down, and he will start off his
patter something like this: "Now, I want you to relax. There is nothing to be afraid of. There is
nothing wrong with being hypnotized. You're going to sink into a little sleep. It's going to be a
more relaxing and a deeper sleep than you have ever before experienced in your life." If the
subject is at all suggestible, he is already about half hypnotized merely by suggestion.

Then the hypnotist starts in and says very calmly, "Go to sleep . . . go to sleep." He may make
passes across the person's face. "Go to sleep. Now you can feel your muscles relaxing. Now
all through your body you can feel your muscles relaxing. Now, first your toes are going to
relax. And now your legs are going to relax. And now your hips are going to relax. And now
you can feel your back relaxing. You can feel your hands relaxing. You can feel your arms
relaxing. You can feel the back of your neck relaxing. You can feel your mind relaxing. You
can feel your face relaxing, and your eyes are closing. Your eyes are closing and they are
closing more and more. It is very difficult for you to keep your eyes open. In fact, you will
find that it is impossible for you to keep your eyes open when I have counted from one to five"
(or from one to ten, or some other such series; or he may merely make passes). Then he says,
"Go to sleep, deeper . . . deeper . . . deeper . . . deeper sleep. Now lie there quietly and go to
sleep. You can only hear the sound of my voice telling you to `go to sleep.' All you can hear is
the sound of my voice. Nothing else will disturb you. Go to sleep."

He keeps this up for a while and then as the subject drops off into a light sleep he lets it deepen.
There are many ways to deepen that sleep, one of which is to put one's index finger and thumb
on the patient's closed eyelids and say, "I am going to press you back to a deeper sleep." This
is very interesting, because to "go back to sleep" is a phrase which makes a person, whenever
he goes to sleep, travel back down the time track and is not the natural method of sleeping. A
person goes to sleep in present time; it doesn't have anything to do with regression.

The person who does not have "Go back to sleep" in his bank someplace is a rare one and
should be put in a museum, because he is a strange creature.

So he says, "I'm going to press you back into a deeper sleep." He presses the two eyeballs
simultaneously and the person has the feeling of going into a deeper sleep.

Then he takes over control of the hands by saying, "Your right hand feels very light; it is rising;
it is rising; it feels very, very light." Finally he gets the hand to move up in the air. He gets the
other hand to move up in the air and then he gets the two hands spinning around each other in
an automatic action.

Now he says, "You can try to stop your hands from spinning but you will not be able to. Try
and stop them." The second he tries to stop them, the fellow's hands go faster and faster and
faster and faster. This, of course, convinces him that he is utterly and completely under the
control of the hypnotist.

So the hypnotist says, "When your arms drop to the sides of your chair you will go into a
much deeper sleep." The person's arms drop, and he will be in an infinitely suggestible mood
if this has worked this far.

Then the hypnotist puts in a suggestion: "You will be able to talk clearly. You will not have to
stutter anymore. You will feel the urge to speak low and slow." This is, for instance, in the
"curing" of stammering and incidentally quite often works, on one patient out of ten. So he
says, "You will be able to speak clearly and distinctly. All you will have to do is speak low and
slow and you will be able to speak perfectly, without stuttering or stammering. And you want
to speak slowly and clearly, you want to do this."

At this moment, or before he introduces the positive suggestion (which, technically speaking,
is what the individual says that is to be implanted in another person's mind intentionally to
produce a certain effect), he very often adds, "You want to be kind to people. You don't want
to be mean to anyone. You want to be very kind and very pleasant with people, and you feel
very comfortable now. You're going to wake up feeling better than you have for days, and you
will be able to talk clearly and distinctly after this. Now you're going to forget everything I
have told you. You're going to forget it, and it's going to be put out of your mind, and you will
have no memory of what has occurred here. Now, you promise me you're going to forget all
this! " ("Promise" may be something that lies in the reactive bank as something supersacred.)

Take good note of this because you may have to take this apart in the dark. As an auditor you
won't have any knowledge of when the hypnotism took place or who did it, but these are the
essential parts.

Now he says, "One, you're beginning to forget it. Two, you're forgetting it a little bit more.
Three, you're forgetting it even more. Four, it's over half forgotten. Five, it is getting very,
very vague in your mind. Six, the dimmest dream is there. And seven, you have forgotten it."
Now he indulges in a little chitter-chatter to the effect of "How do you feel?" and so on.

He closes down the session by awakening the subject with the words, "One, you're beginning
to wake up. Two, you're halfway awake. Three, you're awake." That is a standard therapy

Substituting for the content there about speaking clearly, you can put in positive suggestions to
this effect: "When you awaken, you will want to take off your left shoe; and you will take off
your left shoe and you will put it on the mantelpiece." That is a posthypnotic suggestion.

When the patient awakens after the full routine he will either be very irritated about not taking
off his shoe, or his foot will get very uncomfortable about it, and he will finally take off his
shoe and lay it on the mantelpiece, if he's going to carry out the suggestion. He will have all
manner of explanations as to why he has taken this shoe off. It's because it had a rock in it. It's

because the mantelpiece is higher in the room and therefore the air is drier there, and the foot
was just a little bit damp and the shoe was damp, and he wants it to dry out. This is justification
at work.

Then eventually the hypnotist brings it to his mind that that was the suggestion, and at that
moment the suggestion deintensifies. This is very interesting to me in this respect: A person
obeying that positive suggestion is not awake. If you look at a person's eyes when he looks at
the hypnotist you will see that there is a slightly dull glaze on them; he is not entirely awake. He
is still in a hypnoidal state when he carries out the suggestion, and only when it has finally been
recalled to his mind that he was hypnotized does the thing flick off more or less as a
compulsion so that he can put his shoe back on and be happy about it. But he very often feels
like he has been made into a fool and he is not particularly overjoyed about the whole thing.

Another mechanism is to tell the subject: "You are now President of the United States. When I
awaken you, you are going to deliver a magnificent speech to these people as President of the
United States." And he will deliver a speech. This is interesting because if the man, let us say,
had a manic to this effect: "Someday you will be President, I am sure. You are a nice little boy.
Someday I am sure you will be a great man. You will be a president or something; a strong
man," and now we give him a hypnotic suggestion that says, "You will now be President of
the United States," we have reinforced the manic. So, the hypnotist is unaware of the fact that
his hypnotic suggestions are often dropping down into the bank as key-ins.

In the past in the deepest sincerity and in an effort to help people, hypnotists have used these
techniques. Now, studying the subject further in the light of Dianetics, most hypnotists
discover that it is not quite the thing to do. It upsets things pretty badly.

If you have a patient who is getting blank-outs during a certain period, a patient who is sure
somehow that he has had homosexual relationships with somebody but can't tell you when or
where, you start looking into hypnotism.

You may not find it, because one of the chief weapons of the pervert is hypnotism. He uses
hypnotism quite freely. I have found many incidents of hypnotism used for perversion.

Even worse than that, you very often find that by contagion of aberration the person will go out
and dramatize the engram without knowing it ever happened to him. He merely thinks, "Well,
that's something to do," so he is liable to hypnotize somebody else.

The standard pervert session of hypnotism seems to wind up, "Now, if you told anybody that
this had happened, they would never believe you!" Or if it is done to a young boy, "Your
mother and father would of course drive you from your home if they knew about this. If you
told them anything that had happened here, they would not believe you. In fact you can't
believe it yourself. You don't think anything has happened here at all." That perversion
sequence may contain such a thing as "You are a woman," or if a woman is using it, "You are a
man," and so on. It will be a hard engram to tackle in that it will be completely out of view.
You may find this once in a hundred cases, although the percentage to date has been about one
out of 95 cases, which is about one percent. This is only a series of about 180 so it is not a
good statistic, merely a guess.

None of these remarks are leveled at hypnotists at all; they are leveled exclusively at a practice
which you will find in the society.

Hypnotism may still have enormous therapeutic or anesthetic value. In addition to that it is an
excellent research tool in Dianetics. But it is not something with which you would toy idly. It
has real horsepower in it.

You will discover hypnotic therapy or deep analysis in quite a few patients who have
undergone psychoanalysis. Deep analysis is a practice of discovering hidden data and
delivering unto the patient insight regarding that data.

The words "You can remember all this in present time" sometimes appear in these sessions,
and "You can remember it" is also a standard phrase. The fact that the patient often does not
remember has never amazed anybody practicing deep analysis. It should have. Because "You
can remember it" is a statement made in the reactive mind long after the early statement of
Mama's "You can't remember it." So the positive suggestion later falls on deaf ears. The field
is already closed off.

That is true of all hypnotic suggestions. If you hypnotize a man on Tuesday and tell him that he
cannot write a line and that he will never be able to write, and then you hypnotize him on
Thursday and tell him that he is a great writer, he isn't going to be a great writer. It takes it on a
priority basis. I conducted a few experiments on this which seem to confirm that finding.

The engram bank does this also. Hypnotism is simply another engram, but it is a special kind
of an engram because it has malice aforethought behind it. Furthermore, it's quite often a
sympathy engram. The person is in affinity with the hypnotist.

In deep analysis the person is given the insight often while he is still asleep, and that is where
you get a large parade of positive suggestions which were never intended to be positive
suggestions. The person has been hypnotized, and later the hypnotist tries to give him insight
because he appears to be perfectly rational, so why not talk to him? At that point you are liable
to find almost anything.

We move from that field into drug hypnosis which differs in no way from any other kind of
hypnotism except that it is effective to the degree that a toxin is present, that of the so-called
"hypnotic" drug. So, when it is restimulated, one gets the weariness of the toxin in the
organism, which as a consequence is a little tougher on a person.

Give a patient sodium amytal, for instance, and you will discover that this brings about a
seeming rationale which the person has never had before but which is actually sinking him into
amnesia trance, Dianetically speaking. But basic personality is there, and he looks so
reasonable, so utterly rational, that it appears possible to have a conversation with him.

So one says, "Well, how do you feel today?"

"Oh, I feel pretty good."

"How are you doing?"

"I'm doing all right."

Now as long as it is kept on a question basis, it is not so bad. But the hypnotist often
continues, "Well, you look pretty sleepy. You've been very disturbed lately, haven't you?"


"Well, why do you do these terrible things? I bet you don't even know yourself. What's the
idea of raving around here all the time? You know better than to make all this noise," and so

Now we go from that into sodium pentothal which is an effort to probe deep memories.
Sodium amytal is seldom given intravenously, but sodium pentothal is given in a controlled
intravenous shot, and the depth of trance is more or less controlled by the amount of sodium
pentothal in the blood stream. It is adjustable and a person can be held at a depth of trance this
way. Sodium amytal, however, just follows its own curve and a person finally goes all the way
to sleep.

One will find regression if one treats soldiers who have been unlucky enough to undergo
narcosynthesis. One will sometimes find there was a point in the person's life when he
changed. You can't discover the cause of this change, but he changed. He was merely sick
before, but now he is crazy. Very often you will find lying right there on the borderline
between these two things-in the case of people who have been processed by the army
particularly-narcosynthesis, because they try regression under narcosynthesis. Therefore in
sodium pentothal or some other drug used in narcosynthesis it is possible for the doctor to
touch upon a late life period of unconsciousness and go over it trying to find something in it.
But because it is late life, the earlier material is not out of the case and all it does is restimulate.
It also has this insidious quality-when restimulated in that fashion it does not thereafter die
away. It just behaves like an engram in full restimulation. You could perhaps change things
around so that it might deintensify some way but it is pretty fixed.

The buttons are permanently held down. For instance if this has to do with battle, let's say that
all around him people are talking about killing, we get such remarkable occurrences as "Man
released from Veteran's Hospital on Tuesday kills wife on Thursday!" Anything which is
touched in narcosynthesis is apt to be restimulated permanently. The only thing that one can
touch and get away with is a charge of painful emotion which will blow if the person can reach

This is how to undo damage done to people we have to treat. Because they didn't know about
valence shift or other things, they may have hit some charge and barely restimulated it. Now
the mind closes in over the top of it when a patient wakes up, and it tries to punch its way
through and is fully active. So you will have to reach periods of narcosynthesis.
Narcosynthesis can have in it a full hypnotic patter, thus doubling the felony.

So, when you have a patient who is acting very strangely about certain things, such as you are
working him on a session and suddenly he is frightened, or he can't recall something, or
everything seems to blank out on him, and he has no way of knowing what it is, one of the
things you can suspect is hypnotism, whether he knows about it or not. If there are hypnotic
incidents back along the track somewhere, it is better to relieve those as soonas possible.

Hypnotism has been found in the prenatal area. One notable case was a hypnotism and a rape in
the prenatal area by a doctor that had the auditor and preclear guessing because this person was
rather antagonistic toward doctors. Because just enough psychotics have dreamed up a delusion
that they have been seduced in this manner, doctors have disregarded the fact that occasionally
one of them actually has been.

A perfectly reputable analyst out in the Middle West evidently had the practice of treating young
boys in such a fashion, since such an incident seemed quite valid when discovered in the bank.
The patient knew nothing about it, and it would be a rough one to recover normally. There have
been several of these incidents reported, and I have found them in banks myself. They were
valid, they were not delusions; because by reducing them, enormously increased sanity
resulted. They were very insidious.

So, hypnotism is something which an auditor will sooner or later encounter, and he should be
ready to handle it.

Then there is the forgetter mechanism which may latch on to Grandma's favorite trick: "Now
that's all right, honey; you fell down and hurt your face and knocked all your teeth in, but
that's all right. You'll forget it in a little while, you'll forget all about it. The best thing to do is
to put it all the way out of your mind. Let's think about something else."

On one particular case, Grandma compounded the injury by saying, "Just lay there and
daydream about pleasant things," and every time you took him down the track he'd daydream!

To find such an incident you could have the patient do a repeater technique on "Go to sleep,"
but remember that on the end of it there is "Forget it" and you would tackle that first.

You can tackle any patient on the subject of "forget it" and he will turn this up. Around 1910
there was a standard slang phrase "Aw, forget it," and it is still going today, and that will
appear in the prenatal bank. If Papa has this manifestation of "Forget it, forget it, forget it," or
"Oh well, all right, so forget it," the whole bank occludes.

From hypnotism we can also observe engrams by seeing the effects described above. Although
it may be lighter than another engram, it can be laid in very heavily, and because it is
specifically tailored to be an engram it can be a very insidious one.

One of the Professional Course auditors all of a sudden hit a snag a short time ago, and in
auditing him we found hypnotism at 6 years of age which cured his stuttering, but it also
installed the nicest demon circuit you ever wanted to hear.

There is another brand of hypnotism whereby the hypnotist grabs the patient by the throat,
clamps him on the back of the head, shuts off the blood flow to his brain, rocks him back and
forth about three times, shouting at him, "Sleep! Sleep! Sleep!" Then because the blood is shut
off to the person's brain and he feels himself getting dizzy, he realizes at this moment he is
being hypnotized-he thinks. And it works on quite a few patients.

One sometimes finds such incidents in children's banks when they are going to school. What is
said in there makes a minor hypnotic lock; but usually it is just chatter: "Oh, lookee, he's going
to sleep!" I ran about 150 of those out of one child. It seems that he could do it excellently. At
prep school, he would go around and very proudly let people do this to him. Then everybody
would stand around saying, "By golly, he is asleep, isn't he! Yup, knocked himself out; yup,
he's unconscious."

Hypnotism in an expert's hands used as an anesthetic can be an effective therapy tool, and you
can use it if you want on some inaccessible psychotic and get results. But remember that if you
start a patient working in amnesia trance you are throwing the case out, in terms of time, to
about three times as long as it will take in reverie. It may look infinitely desirable to put the
person into an amnesia trance and run him back to the earliest moment of pain or
unconsciouness. He can find it eventually and run something out on it, but usually someone in
amnesia trance talks pretty slowly. When he is slowed down further by colliding with an
engram, it is lengthy work. He can't compute worth a nickel and as a consequence you have to
do all of his thinking for him.

Furthermore, you are putting in positive suggestions whether you want to or not, no matter
how careful you are. As a result the case takes a long time, works very slowly, and it usually
follows the curve of getting worse at first; then it gets a little bit better and it follows along in its
own plane, improving slightly and then getting a little worse. There is a slow, slow rise. Right
at the end of the case, the person gets well almost all at once. He is suddenly no longer
hypnotizable. It is almost impossible to hypnotize a clear.

There is another method of knocking a person into an amnesia trance. If you can get him to
dream, you can take the dream, find out what that dream is depending on in the reactive bank,
find the incident about which he was dreaming, run that incident out-taking all of it out that
you can-then wake the person up, bring him to present time and take him back to the incident
again. That incident will now behave faintly as if you haven't touched it. You can run the
incident out again, and this time it will go away.

But they get better very slowly, and everything you say to them is a positive suggestion. A
break of the Auditor's Code at that time can be almost fatal to a patient.

Normally as you watch a patient go back down the time track, when he hits an engram his
analyzer attenuates; but if you have the patient in a deep trance and his analyzer is already way
down and now he hits an engram, it doesn't merely attenuate, it disappears altogether! So when

you are running him down the track, don't confuse a hypnotic state with reduced analytical
ability because of a triggered engram.

A simple test is to watch the person's eyeballs. You will find as he lies there that the eyeballs
under the closed eyelids will hunt back and forth. You can see the bump of them on the eyelids,
and they will be wandering. Don't mistake this for the fact that a preclear returned down the
track will often think he is looking around, when he is actually reading the words! I have had
patients that got all their engrams on teletype. But the hunting indicates a hypnotic state.

When I find a person is taking my statements literally-for instance, if I say, "Go on," and he
says, "Where?"-I immediately suspect that he has dropped into a hypnotic trance. If a person
is going to drop into a hypnotic trance though, he will do so very shortly after he enters
therapy. It's unmistakable, and one is not going to find it easy to work him out of that trance
either. However, the motto is: Work him where he lies. If he drops into a half hypnotized state
just by closing his eyes, work him there.

The reason why we were using the count of seven was because it did attract people's attention a
little bit better. But by running a long series on merely closing the eyes, we have found no
failures and we were doing something which was unnecessary. Further, by counting to seven,
we sometimes fell right in on top of somebody else's hypnotism. So, just tell a person to close
his eyes.

There are actually two types of hypnotic states that people wander around in. They are either
regressed back down the track someplace but not in a real trance, or they wander around in a
permanent light hypnotic trance. Or they do both. They are not only regressed back down the
track so thoroughly that it is obvious, but also they are in a trance. That person is in pretty bad

Strangely enough, these people cannot be hypnotized for the simple reason that they are already
asleep. Everything said to such a person may be engramic, but they may be sitting in a moment
which says, "I can't believe anything you say," so nothing goes in.

Everybody is more or less in a light trance until he gets up to a very good release. That is a fact.

Hypnosis is a good anesthetic. But even though you pick up an immediate accident of a few
minutes before and take what you can out of it with Dianetic therapy, and give it first aid to help
its healing, that won't get around the fact that it still hurts to have a needle shoved through you.

Hypnotic anesthesia, when we know Dianetics, is a highly beneficial thing when it can be
used. One would certainly prefer it to any current anesthesia. But it should be so tricked out
that it can be recalled after a certain period of time. You can put a time tag on it and say, "By
July 21st, 1950," which is when you know the patient is going to be pretty well healed up,
"you will be able to remember everything that happened," and it will spring into view at that

Using hypnotic therapy, it is no great trick to flash back to the moment and lift the suggestion
through and one should do that. This can be done by installing a canceler previously which you
can then lift after the operation, because it is now on the track.

A renowned hypnotist is currently running a series of tests so that we will know exactly what
effect installing a canceler will have, and can work out the optimum use of hypnosis in
anesthesia. Because it is a good anesthetic, if we know Dianetics.

He took someone whose hand was torn and hypnotized him, putting in a canceler and a pain
shut-off. Then he sewed his hand up and woke him up. The person felt no pain in the area, but
at the end of this session of sewing the hand up he pulled the canceler out and the pain
immediately turned on.

When a person is lying on the couch, the only pains he has are restimulated pains. The person
may have had asthma for 40 years and a session of it every week, but when you get the original
cause of that asthma, you have in the next 40 years only the locks. The pain itself carried over
does not create new engrams. In such a way when you have a patient in therapy and you install
a canceler just to make sure, you are treating somebody who has no immediate injury, whose
pains are restimulated pains. As a consequence all of that blows out.

In the case of actual injury, there is a cellular retention of whatever is said in the surroundings.
The hypnotism will undoubtedly be there, but what effect it will have and what new effect it
will have to produce is something else. However, that is a research project which is underway.

If you are working somebody that you know has been hypnotized, you had better take an
exploratory of the hypnotism and find out how aberrative it was and how much was in it.

In order to hypnotize a clear, he would have to set up a demon circuit himself that says, "I'm

The hypnotist says, "I'm going to hypnotize you," so the clear sets up a demon circuit that
says, "Okay, I'm hypnotized; all the words coming in are going to produce a terrific effect
upon me. Okay." He will hold it as long as you want him to, but after an hour or so he may
decide that that was all nonsense and just drop the whole circuit. If you took him back along the
track, he would have it all, but it was in conscious recall anyhow.

A clear can probably install a pain shut-off in himself. He can install another circuit that
controls the somatic mind or the fluid flow.

When a person is using autohypnosis, he is liable to use engramic language to himself, and he
is liable to pick up things which he has in the bank in order to apply to himself. As a
consequence, his autohypnosis is a self-restimulative process, and it can really get him into

If anybody ever comes to you and says, "Please give me the following positive suggestion . .
." or if you are working with a patient who does trance easily and he wants you to give him a
suggestion, under no circumstances give it to him; because the desire for that suggestion is
dictated by an engram and you will succeed in laying in a lock. If it goes on top of a sympathy
engram, you will have a lot of trouble releasing that thing.

The language that he wants reinstalled in himself is straight out of an engram, so you will
simply be doubling up on the thing and making that engram and the later suggestion
inaccessible to yourself.

A young man came to me one time insisting that I drive him crazy, and when I refused to do so
said I was hedging about Dianetics. But he pestered me and pestered me. He had been
hypnotized many times and he wanted me to install a particular suggestion in him. We were
barely into therapy in Dianetics. He begged and he fussed, so finally I gave him a hand grenade
with the pin pulled. From a research angle I wanted to know if the predicted result would take
place. So I said, "Well, all right. I'll give you the suggestion. What do you want installed?" He
wanted the following suggestion put in: "I can remember everything which has ever hurt me in
my whole life in present time so that I myself can then run off the engrams and deintensify
them, myself, and so be able to administer therapy, myself."

So, I threw him into a deep trance and gave him a full routine. I gave him the suggestion,
tamped it shut on the end, wiped the whole experience out of his mind, wiped out the
experience of his coming to tell me that he wanted it done (all in the bargain), woke up this
patient and had a psychotic on my hands.

He was crazy and he stayed crazy for quite a while! I was very busy, I didn't have much time
to work on him, and I wanted to find out if this thing would settle out, or something else would

happen. But nothing settled out. The poor man went around running such engrams as: "I'm
killed, I'm killed, I'm stuck, I'm caught. I'm stuck, it must be that. Yeah, that's it! Oh, that's
that horrible pain in my shoulder! I'm stuck, I'm stuck, I'm stuck. Oh, I'm caught, I'm

You could see him on any street corner or any place that he was hanging around, or sitting on
the front doorstep, and he would be running these engrams. That was all he did, hopelessly. Of
course he never ran a single one out! He restimulated practically every engram in the bank. So,
finally he came back and confided to me that because he had a couple of bad spots in the past,
he didn't want anybody else to know about it. But now he was desperate and he threw himself
upon my mercy, and proceeded to tell me all about it.

I worked with him for about 10, 12 sessions. The case was really nailed down. What was
actually underlying that suggestion, as I got down the bank and really threw the thing into full
gear and finally pulled it up, was the phrase "If anyone remembered everything which had ever
happened to him he would go mad!" That was the engram underlying it, but the actual
computation was that if Mama went crazy, Grandma would take care of her.

Of course, one can recall the engram bank with perfect safety once it is gone, and one can recall
it in chunks as it is going. But don't try to recall it all at once, because it is possible that an
engram could contain this whole thing to such a degree that you would find everything that
would ever hurt a man in present time out front. However, if you did discover that, the person
would also be in an institution.
