One – a very amusing thing was the case of a person who was given a – a psycho – a Section Eight, something like that, out of the Army. He was a – had originally, because the Army was so antipathetic – he’s a medical doctor – the Army was so antipathetic toward him and he didn’t like the Army enough, so that he went down and very carefully studied Rorschach, and studied it down in the library thoroughly enough so that he could pass an incontrovertible psychotic Rorschach. And then did enough peculiar things to get himself shoved into a Rorschach test, and when the Rorschach test was given, exactly represented it to be a psychotic result, you see. And at that time was given the heave-ho. This boy had done this just to serve himself; you see. In other words, he got out of it simply because he didn’t like it. He didn’t — hadn’t had up to that moment any concern about psychosis.
He immediately became worried, the second he was shoved out, about his mind, started to go a little bit potty, and every single one of these manifestations, every single one of them began to show up. And they were — they were the —. Rorschach is quite unreal, by the way, Szondi, Rorschach, all the rest of these things are real bum tests. Never, never count on them. We find him exactly dramatizing everything he had read in the book was psycho. And I got him over his psychosis very neatly. I didn’t make him into a more cooperative individual or many other things.
But I got him over it by running out all of his study of and acceptance of these psychotic manifestations so he could get out of the army. And I ran those as engrams. And I ran them right straight on through over and over, grind, grind, grind, grind, grind. Got interested in the fact that he had actually condemned himself to his own manifestation. Here you have the fellow has to accept this game before it will become a real game, and before a game becomes subconscious or unconscious, in other words, unreal. By the way, do you realize that just recently we’ve cleaned up what this unconscious is. It is an – a too long run, completely buried game terminal of some sort or another, which is no longer real to the individual.
And this manifestation can get into such a state, and it starts in at the moment that the terminal is created. And of course the moment he was released from the army, there was no further use for this game. But remember it was a game, so he had to hold onto the terminal, to kid with it, and then because it was not acceptable socially at all, particularly from a medical doctor, he then had to give it a shove and instead of disposing of it, he hid it. And of course we then had obsessive conduct, dramatizing the game and so on. We find out that every manifestation a person’s got has gone this cycle.
