|Lecture: The Anatomy of Circuitry|
Hubbard discusses schizophrenia in terms of secondary engrams, and in terms of a personality disorder and a control problem arising from confusion between humans and MEST (matter, energy, space and time.)
A schizophrenic is someone who is supercharged by secondary engrams up to a point where he is mainly circuitry with precious little left of "I." Therefore "I" is never in control. His personality starts changing because the circuitry "I"s are laid in by other personalities than his own. He has been usurped by other people.
Thought is trying to conquer MEST. In the process of aberration, thought, in attempting that conquest, gets human beings confused with MEST, tries to control them, and ends up by doing so. But this control is resident in a live mind. Being resident there, it plays havoc, because the thought lines and harmonics are disrupted and this person is trying to apply force. That is the normal picture of a schizophrenic.
