Description: Hubbard discusses "dub-in cases" and their religious implants; describes the visual content and symbolism contained in these implants; says a current atheist used to "sell it across an altar"; gives an example of someone who does an identity switch and talks about the type of incidents that cause this.
The one danger in auditing is to get a DED1, and to be agreeable and audit the counter-effort. You take a case that is very very heavy on the DED type of chain or incident, and you audit the counter-efforts instead of the early overts2, and you don’t let him run the things he did to somebody else. You be agreeable, you let him audit the time he got strangled, and the time he got run over by the train, and the time he got run over by the train, and the third, fourth, and fifth time he got run over by the train, and then all the prenatal train wrecks, to say nothing of the train wreck he had when he was being born. So, you let him run those things. Pretty soon he will get tired of those, and he will start off with trucks. Then you get all the times he was run over by a truck when he was 2, then all the times he was run over by a truck when he was 3. Then you get all the grief incidents, all the allies he has lost. This can go on and on. This is your “Dub-In3” case. This guy is manufacturing incidents, and saying that they are real. Why is he doing this? It is because he hasn’t got a strong enough counter-effort to justify all of his overt acts anywhere on the track. It is really balled- up, so he has got to manufacture them. He has got to deserve all of these things.
He’s got a few religious implants4, and that is why I brought that up so strongly, because that is THE type of implant which plays THE role in the dub-in case. The religious implant. When you look at a dub-in case you say, “Religious Implant”, just as you would say, “Floor- Carpet” – they are right together. A wonderful thing these religious implants; they show you symbols. They are full of symbols. There you are sitting in the middle of an electric field which is beating the devil out of you, and they show you: a cross, a church window, all sorts of things, all sorts of religious symbols. They are on cards. They slide them in this way and that way, and you look at them this way and that way, and they throw waves at you in patterns, and they throw lights on you which have religious symbols on them. Oh, it’s wonderful! After a while you get SO respectful to a religious symbol. Boy, what has been done in the name of religion is indeed wonderful to behold.
Some of these incidents are really rough. But they are only rough because this fellow later on (after implant) had been a member of a church himself, and would be telling people, “Well brother, you are really a sinner, step into this vestibule and we will fix you up” – FOR A PRICE. And this PC who is a terrible atheist now (and tells you these horrible things about churches – real terrible things) was selling it across the altar, whether it was peanuts or popcorn, just as long as it would bring in the money.
It goes in cycles, so don’t feel too sympathetic about these religious implants, because you will find him out there grinding this funny little gimmick at all the people kneeling there. Maybe his job was to stand behind this pillar and give them the business!! That was just his role in the church. After he had done this for a while it keyed him in5, it had a backfire in it, you see) to the point where he confused himself with the congregation and he did another switch. if he has done this horrible thing of doing this (perhaps under orders) without it ever happening to him (that is – with no religious implant, he goes around implanting others) boy oh boy, is he in wonderful shape as far as religion is concerned. God is on his trail; you start to run this life or past lives, and the only thing he will give you is a big dub- in. Yes, he nailed Jesus to the cross, and the only thing that tells you is he has a tremendous number of overt acts without any counter-effort ahead of them. He probably has a facsimile of having nailed somebody to a cross sometime or another. We have been so playful.
There is a general rule to follow, just a general, loose, rough rule – “That anything wrong with the PC, the PC has made wrong with some other human being first.” That goes for anything, and that includes dying. That is something wrong with the PC, he lives 70 yrs and then kicks the bucket. That is a foolish thing. He gets old, he gets aged. Very interesting, and very silly. Why does anybody get old, why would he do that? There is a practical reason and a stupid reason. The reason he wanted to get old is simple; it is a nice mechanism, it removes bodies from the track. Also, the reason people don’t go along for 60 years and then die, being in good health for 60 years is the fact that in fighting back and forth, one with another each for supremacy, they have a tendancy to reduce each other down. This planets life span for man is three score years and ten. That has to do with gravity. Gravity adds in the counter-effort to the MEST body, which is after all, like a plant or any other growing thing composed of cells. Going ahead it has a tendency to last in ratio to the gravity. On other planets you would have a different life span.
