It is an effort to make somebody else be very self-controlled. These things go in as demon circuits. The demon circuit is "You control yourself," whereas "I" as a single aberration just tries to align itself with "I."
Psychosis seems to occur because one of these demon circuits says to what is left of poor "I" after a big engram charge has gotten in there and lopped off part of the analyzer, "Damn it, control yourself, you’ve got to be logical," with the person installing the demon circuit himself becoming increasingly more hysterical, while giving out all this "good advice."
I have studied the human animal in some remarkably strange places, and in a bar one day I saw a drunk who had his buddy up against the wall and he was banging his head against it saying, "Damn you, I’ll teach you to be reasonable. Be reasonable, damn you, be logical like I am! "
There was a demon circuit going in right at that moment.
This is the aberration which permits a person to take himself out of the auditor’s hands. There is an "I" demon circuit inside the mind busily running "I."
Undoubtedly some of these demon circuits are going to start picking up Dianetic terminology some day and it is possible that an incipient schizophrenic who is almost ready for a break could, with some very stupid and careless auditing, get a demon circuit set up in the mind.
It would have to be a huge break of the Auditor’s Code, with the "auditor" kneeling with his knee in the preclear’s chest, holding him by the throat and banging his head against the floor, saying, "Control yourself. Now, damn it, you’ve got to go over these engrams. You know you can do it. You can make yourself do it. And I’m not going to put up with any more of your nonsense. Now, go back to basic-basic and I’m not kidding you, go back to it!"
This is nothing against Dianetics because such behavior would definitely be off the line on Standard Procedure. But some psychiatrist may try this.
The magnitude of installation has got to be very high before this sort of thing could happen, or it could be very slight but lock up on some earlier demon circuit which would then become vocal.
Start to work psychotics and nothing will show up quite as clearly as "Control yourself." It is quite aberrative. Any organization in the society which seeks to exert control upon members in that society by force is to some degree an aberrative factor on the society.
If you don’t believe this, go back and check up totalitarianism in the history of those
governments which worked most sharply with force and you will find that their social order deteriorated afterwards and became more psychotic than most social orders are.
