|JOS: Records of Mind Are Permanent|
Hubbard describes the post-hypnotic suggestions present in Black Dianetics. He explains that the same mental mechanism used in Dianetics to improve health and sanity can be used in Black Dianetics to implant new compulsions.
Records of Mind Are Permanent
Man, for all his years, took the observation for the fact that when a human being was no longer able to control its own operations and functions and so long as it, again in control, could not recall what had occurred, that the material was not recorded. This was wholly unwarranted as an assumption.
MEANS TO RESCUE MAN ALSO CAN CONTROL HIMIn this, the last of three articles on Black Dianetics, Mr. Hubbard tells how the very processes of the mind are used for man's control. when utilized by persons seeking power. By knowing how the mind works, and adapting this knowledge to his needs, man at the same time can free himself of his aberrations, his psychosomatic illnesses—even ascend to the stars.

Let us examine, first, pain. Pain, technically, is caused by an effort counter to the effort of the individual as a whole.
When pain departs, it is still on record. The record of that pain can be called again into existence.
With every area of randomity thus created by injury or illness or shock or drugs, there is stored as well the counter-effort to the body. The effort impinged upon the body by the blow or the other misaligning factor also was stored. This is physical force. When it comes back upon the body, it comes back as physical force. It can distort features or the body by being in constant "restimulation."
Restimulation is occasioned by some part of the early recording being approximated in the environment in the present. This calls up the old area of randomity. The body, confused, registers the old counter-effort.
Processing cleans up these old areas with resultant rise in health and sanity. Black Dianetics uses this mechanism to implant new compulsion.
