It doesn’t mean that when a preclear is sufficiently ill, and he won’t recover, that you shouldn’t process him at all. Doesn’t mean because he’s being given medical treatment you should abandon him.
I’ll tell you something funny in this particular field. The original experiments, way back. 1945. The original experiments on this line determined that function monitored structure. In other words, function ran structure. That was a big lesson. Actually, endocrine compounds like hormones and so on, could be given to somebody. Well that’s physiological. I mean, you know? You can give him hormones and so on. Well he should have responded in some fashion to this. And then, after they were mentally unburdened of their problems or troubles, it would work. But it wouldn’t work.
In other words, the wild variable was that hormones and certain preparations, and by the way it was undertaken with people who were just released from Jap prison camps who had been starved during the better part of World War II in Japanese prison camps.
And they were coming in to Oak Knoll Naval Hospital. And it was very difficult to handle these boys, because they were very badly deranged. They had been subjected to brutality, the like of which nobody ever heard of. And they weren’t really treated as prisoners of war at all. They were just absolutely inhumanly butchered. And these fellows were carrying a terrific amount of mental stress, so that on some of them you would give them preparations, like amino acids, which is the acids of protein, so maybe they could begin to digest their food again. Or something like that. Wouldn’t work, you know? Wouldn’t work. Damn little to do with it. Because there’s enough coordination there they could imagine that they were associated.
So this, this is interesting, this is interesting from this standpoint, because it brings you up to this one. The guy’s on penicillin, but his lumbosis won’t cure up. He’s got pneumonia. He actually can be on penicillin and it isn’t handling the thing. He isn’t getting any better. Or he’s getting better very, very slowly indeed. Now he was so ill before he went on any antibiotic that he couldn’t stir. But now that he’s on the antibiotic he can stir around a little bit. Do you follow?
Now, this magic can occur. Now that he can pay attention he’s not running a high fever, or something like that. But he isn’t getting any better. He’s come up Just that little bit, and he’s stuck right there. You can audit the engram and the penicillin works. I’ve seen this. I’ve seen this and done some work with this. It’s the most miraculous thing you ever cared to see. I mean, the fellow’s been hanging five for three weeks and they’re starting to step up the penicillin to million units an hour or something like this you know? He isn’t getting any better. He doesn’t improve. They continue. This is all, anything, you know, and then just run the engram of the illness, or put in his Ruds, or something like this, and all of a sudden, wham! All cures us in about four hours. So what it is is sort of a penicillin assist. It’s a reverse flip.
You say, “Well you shouldn’t audit a person under drugs.” You shouldn’t audit a person under soporifics, which are sleep. Sleep drugs, you shouldn’t audit a person under those that produce wild euphoria, or vnee vnee ney cay. You shouldn’t process him when he’s on that kind of drugs. For the excellent reason that the processing probably becomes part of the trip. So you try to process him later, why then it restimulates this, and he sets into a sore of a fog. It’s wild. It’s kind of a mess. He has sort of a processing engram. You know? And he’s somewhat hypnotic when he’s on this stuff.
So that you say to him something or other something or other, he’s liable to come out the other end of the session without remembering a single thing that happened in the session. That’s expressly the type of drug.1
