    I could have a go at freezoners, too. But, for now, I bite my tongue.

    I don't know what is going on.
    The rules of this message board are not equally applied to everyone.
    That is obvious.

    Returning to the OP: There are NO engrams. This is an unscientific fallacy.

    Agreed! The Reactive mind does not exist!
    There are no engrams! (or secondaries or locks)
    The state of Clear is Fallacy!
    The state of OT is a...HELLO???...You guessed it. No brainer.
    Am I being too harsh? HELL NO!
    Truth is Truth! And the Truth shall set you Free

    I have the opinion that there is a sort of "reactive mind" (animal parts of the brain) but this has nothing to do with Dianetics, Scientology, nor so-called "engrams".

    If anyone is still reading this thread, this is just something I've been pondering-

    One definition of "Mind" is 'a way of thinking' - I might say people often think in a reactive manner, so in that sense yes, they have a reactive mind. However, it's Not something you "have" in the same way that you have a heart, lung, elbow, etc, i.e. it's not a thing, it's a way of describing a process.

    Maybe the way to "clear" is to practice thinking creatively, like an artist, creating your life instead of just creating a painting or sculpture, organizing your thoughts, actions and communications around something that you love and value, like the artist has an idea in mind that they want to bring into physical universe reality.

    any thoughts?

    Yes, it's called PTSD, and the "engrams" are replaced with trauma.
