Description: Hubbard lectures on the treatment of people with epilepsy; gives an example to illustrate how Dianetics auditors control preclears on their medications and how they interact with medical doctors.
And then people who have epilepsy, which is a type of disease which gives them seizures, are almost always found on some minor drug that prevents them from getting these–they call them petit mal seizures. That’s epilepsy. I don’t care how they call it. Sometimes they really seize and sometimes its just slight.
One of those, if an epileptic ever took you by the hand and so forth, he’s liable to break every bone in your hand, if he suddenly had a seizure. But the doctors keep them on something to prevent this. Its just a tranquilizer and they keep them on that one year, year in and year out.
And then you come along as an auditor and you try to audit the pc and you tell the pc that he’ll have to go off that drug. And then all of a sudden, why something will happen from someplace or another that the pc will tell the doctor that they have been taken off the drug by the auditor.
And the doctor will call up plaintively asking you to please put her back on the drug because she needs this. And you get into a collision between medical treatment and so on.
Now Ive been using a lot of medical words here or chemical words really. Just don’t pay any attention to them because they’re mostly gobbledygook, and there’s an awful lot of gobbledygook words. Gobbledygook just means nonsense chatter, you see. There’s an awful lot of them.1
