Subliminal Shock Therapy?
Examination of the Scientology E-Meter
Model "Mark Super VII"
"TA" refers to name given to shunt potentiometer
control on Emeter by Hubbard ...
V out @ "TA" = 2.0 = 2.2 Volts
V out @ "TA" = 3.0 = 2.8 Volts
Max Vout = 5.0 Volts
TA = "2.0" on dial = 2.2 V = 5000ohms load
TA = "3.0" on dial = 2.8 V @ 12500 ohms load 
Ohms Law E [ Volts ] = I [ Amps ] * R [ Resistance in ohms ]
I = 2.2 /5000 =   440 u Amperes [ micro Amperes ]
[ at "TA" indicator set to 2.0 = 2.0 ]I = 2.8 / 12500 =   
224 ua [ micro Amperes ] [ at "TA" indicator set to 3.0 ]
Average Value in what Hubbard describes as "normal" hand to hand 
 resistance ranges encountered in its use would be 440 + 224 
= 664 ua /2 =  332 ua  - 1/3rd of a milliamp
Total charge carriers in Coulombs delivered to the human body during 
typical use 2.5 hour session
60 Sec X 60 minutes X 2.5 hours X .000332 Amperes = 2.98 Coulombs
lets call that 3 coulombs
ECT = electro convulsive shock - references to ‘typical' 
usages vary; for sake of illustration a published 
and findable on the web dose was chosen of 
200 Volts AC applied to temples with conductive gel - 
for 2 seconds for comparisons.. Using conductive Gel I 
have measured a skin resistance with a 2 Centimeter round 
nickel contact to be approximately 970 Ohms across 
temple - for sake of illustrative  equations I'm rounding this to 1000 Ohms.
200 Volts / 1000 Ohms = .2 Amperes = 200,000 uAmperes 
for 2 seconds is one ECT value I have located as being 
used for a shock, these are given in a series of three 
shocks , some seconds apart....
 Total dose of charge carriers to the host are as follows for 
one sample series of 3 ECT shocks considered 
1 ‘treatment' = 200,000 uAmperes x 2 seconds x 3 = 1.2 coulombs 
of electric charge carriers [ electrons ]
  So a series of 2 ECT shocks to the temporal lobes yields 
1.2 coulombs yet 3 hr session with this "E-Meter" yields  3 coulombs
 Defined in terms of charge carriers - 2.5 hrs of auditing = 2 
 shocks used in ECT treatments by the evil Psychs
 "In the authors opinion, endogenous activation of 
BCEC systems, leading to unidirectional flow of current 
over long time periods, may lead to modification of 
cells and tissues" "Strong currents will destroy 
cells and tissue. Weak currents, on the other hand, 
will gently create new internal and external environments 
for cells.  The currents will also directly interfere 
with cellular metabolism and modify structural 
elements of cells, damage to structures e.g. the 
DNA molecule, is evidently one possible effect of 
such modifications. Cells subjected to the 
conditions described can be expected to show variable 
abilities to survive and adapt themselves to the new living conditions."
