|Lecture: Basic Processing-1|
|Ron the Swami|
Hubbard talks about the magic of controlling people and material things with words.
This happens because you are running him on an illusion, and the illusion is a word. Words are illusions. Nobody knows this better than a writer. You can build a world of words, and you can build it so solidly that other people will come in and move the MEST underneath those words. Writers have been doing this since time immemorial, and it is magic—complete magic. It has no more solidity in the field of human reason—except in terms of effectiveness, because it is very effective magic—than the magician’s wand which suddenly conjures the rabbit out of a hat.
— L. Ron Hubbard
