|Hubbard on the Conscience|
Hubbard relates the conscience to the reactive mind, the mind that Dianetics erases.
It is the mind, it is the engram, the locks, the secondaries, the gathered experience summated, which gives the preclear his difficulties. It is not that a preclear kills somebody and then thinks, "That's bad," and suffers for it. Conscience, and so on, is a mechanism of the mind. The preclear kills somebody, gets a picture of it, and the picture collapses on all the other pictures of his killing people up and down the track and he gets frantic. It adds the consequence; it adds the liability.
It could almost be said that the consequence of living here on Earth is to have a mind.
—L. Ron Hubbard
