Description: Hubbard tells student auditors that when they run other peoples' engrams as their own, they are not delusional; explains.
As a student auditor, you may discover that the engram you ran out of Bill may tomorrow be found in you. This is nothing about which to get excited, and you shouldn’t think you are having delusions. If this happens, your auditor would be missing a very important point if he didn’t know that you have got a lock on an actual engram, and that the engram you ran out of Bill has settled on your own engram, which is similar. You may have run 40 engrams out of Bill up to this point and none of them stuck, but this one did; and as you start to recount this and say, “‘I can’t stand it around here anymore….’ That’s funny; that is Bill’s engram,” the auditor should at that moment say, “Let’s go to the moment when the words ‘I can’t stand it anymore’ appear.” Or, he may change it a little bit. Your engram may be “I am not going to stand around here anymore,” in a similar circumstance. The lock lay immediately on top of an engram. So, this is another way to find engrams: find out who else’s engram is stuck. It is a method by itself.
So don’t upset yourself if you find yourself running someone else’s engrams. And if you as an auditor find an engram in a case and the person saying “This isn’t my engram” and you don’t immediately look for and get his engram, you are very remiss because you are standing right on that engram at that moment. It isn’t a case of moving him on the track. He is right there. He is right there on his own engram. The lock was received much later, but this lock has just drifted down onto the engram.
