Description: Hubbard gives instructions for a seven-twenty second brainwash technique.
What were you doing? Now, that is the main thing. Because, of course, a grouper1 cannot hang up on a pc unless the pc has done it. A grouper . . anything that can mash electricity . . the only thing which can mash electricity with a crunch like that or cause an individual to slam pictures into his bank like that is a cold vacuum.
There are many systems of doing this. For instance, the Russians . . ha! . . talk about brainwashing! Ha! If you wanted to go . . . After running into a grouper, it’d be very, very hard to convince the pc that he ought to engage professionally in brainwashing. I think it’d be very difficult to convince somebody that had hit a grouper, that he ought to go ahead and fix himself up for new groupers.
But the way it is done is this way: is all you’d have to do is take a handful of dry ice and throw it . . and smash it into the fellow’s face and hold it there and that would be that. That’s a twenty-second brainwash.
He’d have very little memory of what he was doing, his whole bank would collapse and that would be it. Just get a handful of carbon dioxide and smash it into the person’s face. That is the way a grouper is done. Now you know.
Now you can . . it takes the Russian seventy days and it should take you something on the order of seven seconds. Cold. Cold is an extreme stillness. Time is a temperature.
