Description: Hubbard discusses a case history of a young boy who, during narcosynthesis with sodium amytal, had been repeatedly raped by his elderly female analyst. Discusses types of discreditable information available in Dianetics auditing, like attempted abortions with knitting needles and dialog between doctors and nurses. Mentions a Johns Hopkins nurse's manual and instructions on addressing new mothers' anxieties about their babies and about widespread tampering with unborn children.
You will find that where the person has a large number of treatments by narcosynthesis or deep analysis, or has been analyzed under sedation, it poses exactly the same problem that is posed by the patient who has been hypnotized many times.
One interesting case was a young boy who had been under psychoanalysis for about a year and two things had taken place, not necessarily related. The analyst, an old lady, liked young boys. This made a nasty situation and put a complete block on the second dynamic1 because he was told to forget it all.
The bulk of these statements that one has been raped while drugged are usually false, but there are some that have happened, and just because the majority of them are false is no reason to throw them all out of the window. That would be irrational selection.
So, in this particular case, the boy was drugged with sodium amytal and raped several times. He was in pretty bad condition. In addition to this, all of his engrams in the postspeech area had been clipped but nothing had been done to them. However, the auditor who went into this case did something quite brilliant. Instead of worrying about various parts of the case, she went into the first sodium amytal treatment, ran it out and found its material, then she traced back, found the engram and reduced it. She then picked up the next sodium amytal treatment, ran it out, picked up its material that had already been found by the analyst, and went back and reduced the engrams. She followed this on up the line with each one of these sodium amytal treatments, and in such a way used the sodium amytal.
In Dianetics we rapidly get to know the characteristics of anyone who works on the mind, and activities are certainly an open book when you are an auditor. You find out all about the home life of America. You find out all about what doctors say to nurses and so on. These things have not been published in the past, and some ignorance as to their nature has existed, such as Mama’s penchant with a knitting needle. Mama has never advertised that she was handy with a knitting needle and has always said that she wanted the child.
In the Johns Hopkins’ nurses’ handbook it says something to the effect that a nurse must always reassure the mother as to the physical condition of the child, so that the mother will not be upset at the thought that the child will be a monstrosity, since nearly all women have to some degree tampered with the unborn child.
