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

"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." Nordenstrom Page 327 BCEC Bjorn Nordenstrom
definitions: endogenous [external ] BCEC refers to "Biologically Closed Electric Circuits" as are found in the human body
