Your whole post is good, Mims . . . particularly the part above. He did unceremoniously abandon own goal GPMs, as I have posted on before. And he never did return to them. Alan posited that Hubbard never really did want to produce OTs and on a number of occasions sabotaged tech that was relatively on target. But, as to why and on what the meter reads on . . . it happens I posted on this subject over on http://knowledgism-practice-group.org just a few days ago. This also parallels stuff I am currently studying/using in he realm of the "Body electric." This below is an excerpt from a reference to an advanced medical tech conference I am part of later this year. I was recently surprised when reading the book "Current Medicine" by Drs. John Hache & Lottaine Hache, that the fascia of the body (it's the connective tissue and collagen based) is piezoelectric, and when stressed produces electrical charge and electrons. In fact, I know a number here are interested in these aspects of the human body, and I've had it on my mind when I get more info, to scan the relevant pages of the book to post them as attachments. Getting this info in the last month has given me a whole new understanding of what is going on vis-a-vis the body . . . and as a result of some further research I wrote this piece below on the Knowledgism forum site. This is the first part/half (the forum limits posts to 20,000 characters including spaces). Err, also to be noted is that Hubbard (and his predecessors) did screw up on the notion of the "mind."
