This has to my favorite Hubbard Bullshit debunk of all time.

It is a marvelous and deeply informative read. Any of us who destroyed valuable brain cells getting Hubbard's E-Meter fantasy fiction beaten into our long suffering skulls, will simply love this piece.

Enjoy!

Extract: 'The experimenter then ascertained that actual irritation was not essential to these results, but the presentation of the proposed stimulus to the imagination also brought about similar deviations in the galvanometer. He stated, furthermore, that the recollection of some fear, fright or joy, in general any kind of strong emotion, produced the same result. The next point of interest recorded by Tarchanoff was that ordinary abstract mental exercise, such as computation, does not affect the galvanometer unless the exercise be accompanied by exertion. He also noted that the emotion of expectant attention or anticipation had a marked effect upon the galvanometer.

yep, quite interesting, we were taught the emeter reads on pain, emotion, unconsciousness, but this earlier study shows it also reads on imagination.

Hubbard's words provided us with the imagination that we lived before. And some wild stories can be imagined.
