    I enjoy reading your take on subjects with which I’m familiar. I often get new ideas.

      Scientology has influenced me greatly in this life. So I better understand it fully.

        Have you acquired a greater understanding of Scn than you had before doing this exercise? What has improved?

          Certainly. I now have a very good idea of where Hubbard made invaluable contributions, and where he went wrong in his assumptions. I am currently writing a commentary on Chapter One of History of Man, and am realizing how wrong Hubbard was in assuming the existence of a basic-basic. It has been 70 years since the History of Man was written, and the basic-basic is still not discovered on a single case, even with the help of an E-meter.

          On the other hand, Hubbard’s vocabulary of IS-NESS, ALER-ISNESS, NOT-ISNESS, AS-ISNESS, FACSIMILE, VALENCE, OUTPOINT, IDEAL SCENE, etc., etc., has been extremely helpful even in clarifying what is written in the Vedas, Yoga, Buddhism, etc. Scientology, as a subject, is worthy of being Subject Cleared by everyone. It has a great value when subject cleared along with the Vedas, Yoga and Buddhism.

          That is good.

          The first time I heard the word engram, I was taking a biology course at U of Arkansas. That was about 1973. The prof was James Wickliff, a botanist. I’ve tried to look up the etymology and it seems that will take more than a single run through to find. I have been curious for years.

          There is no basic-basic. The engram actually appears as a set of anomalies as the awareness increases. See

          a presumed encoding in neural tissue that provides a physical basis for the persistence of memory; a memory trace.

          a prefix meaning “within, in,” occurring in loanwords from Greek:
          energy; enthusiasm.

          a combining form occurring in loanwords from Greek, where it meant “something written,” “drawing” (epigram; diagram); on this model, used in the formation of compound words (oscillogram).
