Description: Hubbard remarks about Freud's ideas on childhood delusion and seduction by parents.
Sigmund Freud blew himself a flock of fuses in 1911 when he said all was delusion in childhood because he had found prenatal. He could not account for them, although his tenet of longing for the womb stated clearly that there must be memory connected with them. He got into about as confused a state of mind as any person could get, and suddenly pronounced that all is delusion in childhood, because he discovered seductions by parents. In Dianetics, seductions by parents are so ordinary that you just lose count. Every coitus engram could be translated as a seduction by one parent or the other.
