DIANETICS: Analyzer Schematic

Reference: Hubbard 1950: Dianetics TMSMH

These are some comments on Appendix III (B), “Analyzer Schematic” from DIANETICS: THE MODERN SCIENCE OF MENTAL HEALTH.


Appendix III (B)
Analyzer Schematic

This analyzer schematic deals with the idea of multiple attention. This is pretty much like having multiple windows open on a computer. Each window is set up to do a task. One may switch one window to another depending on the need of the moment. The output from one task may be used in another task. Many tasks may be coordinated in this manner.

In the matrix model of the mind, many different circuits can be activated simultaneously, and started and paused as necessary. An operating system is necessary for this purpose, and that is the function of the C-point, or the “I”. Note that once the circuits for the tasks are defined, these tasks proceed at lightening speed in the assimilated matrix. When a musician is playing the piano, and also singing, listening to the orchestra, aware of audience reaction, etc., we have the “I” coordinating all these different tasks effortlessly. In this example, a lot of practice is needed to define or set up the different circuits. The better the circuits are set up, the easier it becomes to multi-task.

This schematic highlights the function of the operating system, which is spreading its attention over many different tasks and doing them efficiently. The operating system is the “I”, which represents a certain level of consciousness. The life force that energizes this operating system is the same life force that energizes the universe.
