REVITALIZING THE INDIVIDUAL IN A POLLUTED AND DRUGGED WORLD


[image]
Though a person is no longer taking drugs, he has mental image pictures of drugs and drug experiences...

...which can reactivate as long as toxic drug residues are locked in the body. A person’s awareness, ability and attitudes can be adversely affected.
 

We live in a chemical-oriented society. The Environmental Protection Agency reports that the average American consumes four pounds of pesticides each year and has residues from over 400 toxic substances in his body. More than 3,000 chemical additives are found in the food we eat.

There is no escaping our contaminated civilization and, furthermore, it has been found that these substances can put an individual in a “wooden” sort of state: unfeeling, insensitive, unable, untrustworthy, a menace to his fellows trapped in the dramatizations of his reactive mind.

Neither toxic pollution nor drug abuse were of major concern in 1950 when L. Ron Hubbard released Dianetics. By the 1960s, however, the frightful specter of both had arrived and Mr. Hubbard’s research showed that a person who had been heavily on drugs was not able to make spiritual gains from auditing. This condition had not been encountered earlier in his researches, as drugs had not yet encroached so deeply into society. But it became more and more prevalent and required a solution, as drugs now represented an increasingly serious block to auditing progress.
