Did 'Demon Circuit' Damn Dianetics?

"Book 1" Warning and Scientology

IF NOTHING else demonstrated Hubbard's
genius that part of the "First Book"
would, wherein he delineates the factors
that made Scientology the inevitable end
result of Dianetics. This was probably
the most completely misunderstood element in the Dianetic theory. Although Hubbard
repeatedly emphasized the secret ally computation, and the demon circuit that "protected"
it, and warned that the pre-clear would do
anything to avoid giving up the clue to the
ally, i.e.: the "secret phrase", the point was

Also missing it was Ron Hubbard himself,
who should have recognized the working of the
demon that drove him to denounce his own data
in the First Book and led him from his original goals into a thousand bypaths.

Yet he had pointed out repeatedly that a
pre-clear will "do anything" to avoid running
out an ally computation (even to the extent of
"inventing" new sciences to keep from destroying the demons) or, if lacking inventiveness,
will join cults of all kinds provided they reject the auditing that threatened the demon,
or the ally, and also provide some patty-caking
technique to rationalize the evasion.

Thus we have the half dozen or so "cults"
that have caught up the once daring explorers
of Dianetics.

Time and time again, in Book One, Hubbard
warned against being misled into these deadends; he even warned against the major side
track of all -- his own "Scientology creed" -- by
stating clearly and in detail that one of the
workings of a demon circuit is the illusion
that the pre-clear is outside his body looking
on. (See Pages 256, 276, and 320 in "Dianetics: The Modern Science of Mental Health"). At
this point, Hubbard said, you have to take
stock of the situation, recognize that a heavy
fear charge is at hand, and realize that before a pre-clear can run this fear, the circuit protecting the ally must be broken.

(Author's NOTE -- This is based on Agnes
Allen's Law, that "Almost anything is easier
to get into than to get out of.")

To protect the ally, Hubbard said, a preclear will do anything -- and one thing readily
done was to give up the somatic in restimulation, thus "pretending" achievement, and six
months later turning up with a substitute for
which Dianetics was then blamed as the preclear joined up with whatever cult suited his

Even lifelong migraine headaches will be
discarded in a minute by a pre-clear brought
close to the ally computation that caused the
migraine, and the most bitter denunciations of
Dianetics and Hubbard have been made by those
persons who had to give up a pet sympathy exciter, like this, rather than run out the ally
computation upon which it was locked -- justifying this a few months later by blaming all
their troubles on you-know-who.

Even Ron Hubbard did this sort of thing --
though not being prone to self blame, he
seemed to prefer blaming his Dianetic cohorts.

Today, the auditor who knows his background on allies and demon circuits can take
modern "Scientology" straight wire and really
get results cleaning up the messes made by
childhood allies in everyone's life.

What is known as Waterloo Station has
been used by some book auditors for years with
great success and "differentiation" was one of
the salient points missed, though clearly stated, in ol' Book One.

It's heartening to realize that the genius for discovery overrode the shying wild
horse in Hubbard's makeup that fled in panic
from the spooky images of the demon circuit
and the ally computation, and that after four
years of sashaying all over creation, we are
now right back where we started ng
straight wire and lock scanning techniquues of
exquisite simplicity that are aimed directly
at breaking up and clearing out the circuitry
and the allies by which Dianetics became hoist
on its own petard in the closing days of 1950.

The essence of exteriorization is that
when a demon is at work there is no responsibility for the pre-clear's make-up. Groups
driven by demons will give themselves over to
exteriorization and make the auditor fully
responsible. This is patty-caking in its ultimate form -- giving your control to a figurehead; taking all directions from an elected
source of wisdom. "Doing as you are told" is
one of the main demons, whether the director
is Ron Hubbard, Ron Howes, Jim Welgos, Major
Fleet, Father Divine, or "Uncle Goston".

Running these "no responsibility" cases
is a waste of time for all auditors except
those who (as Jim Schmitz pointed out in GALAXY Magazine and for which I wish to thank
him) take delight and profit from providing
illusions for people hungry for them.

On the other hand, those rare individuals
who take responsibility for exteriorization
can be run profitably by Route One techniques,
but it's a wild and wooly affair and not one
person in 500 had guts enough five years ago
to plow into the demon circuits and chew up
the ally computations so clearly outlined in
Book One...Hubbard included.

This lack of courage and determination by
both auditors and pre-clears produced a spate
of 25- to 50-hour "miracle" cures that didn't
last. A migraine case could skirt the terror
on an ally connected with the syndrome,
promptly drop the migraine in preference to
giving up the ally, and come back a few months
later with the migraine back, or a substitute
for it well developed in the form of ulcers,
arthritis, or membership in a screwball cult.

Why? Very simple. Because leaving the
demon hooked up, and the ally kept secret, the
emotional need to be sick is still in power,
and as long as the emotional need is there the
physical manifestation will follow in one
guise or another -- wherever the pre-clear goes,
be it in Scientology, Humanics, Human Engineering, Lifting - Yourself-by-Your-own-B o o t-
Straps, Flapping your Ears, or Being a Theta
Clear, and you cannot run a demon or an ally
out without unloading the emotional charge in
the first place, thus eliminating that basic
need to be sick, or crazy.

However, after a four-year side track, we
are back hammering at the citadel wherein the
ally hides, and the good old lock scanning,
straight wire techniques of Dianetics (now
called Scientology for some strange reason)
are aimed with telling force at the web of
circuitry and its mantle of fear and terror,
that spooked so many off before.

Apropos of nothing, Texas is one of the
48 States. But don't tell a Texan that.
