Description: Hubbard announces his new technique wipes out Freudian psychoanalysis.
I’m going to tell you this technique right now. And you’re going to find yourself asking these questions an awful lot of times.
“Where is the past?” That’s the question. The environment. It’s asked out in the environment near the preclear. A formation of nothing or something or whatever it is – you don’t care. You just want something out in front of him saying, “Where is the past?”
And you want that then turned around and placed on or within his body as “Here is the past.” “Where is the future?” And you just want that turned around then and placed within his body, “Here is the future.”
And you’ll find out immediately – it’s really too silly – you’ll find out immediately that he’s trying to bring in the past and bring in the future, which accounts for his condensation in a body.
Now, this technique is quite idiotic because all in a breath we wipe out Freudian psychoanalysis; understand it, digest it and throw it away. Just like that!
