“If you were going to put some life back into the society, if you were to putthe society back together again so that it did have some wish to survive,if you were going to make life a little bit better, really all you’d have to dowould be to put man a little more in control of his actions and reactions.”—L. Ron Hubbard Everyone performs certain routine tasks automatically. Driving a carwould be awkward indeed if one had to think newly of every tinyprocedure. But what happens when someone puts a whole field ofthought and action on automatic? His education, for example? Or his work?Or even his entire life?The answers are here and they open a completely new perspective on the mind.To the degree an individual has withdrawn from participation in an area of life,he substitutes an automatic mental mechanism for himself. Here, then, are thesemental mechanisms and exactly how they undermine an individual’s power ofdecision. Toward returning him that power, Ron details how they can be recognizedin a person’s thoughts, acts, and conversation, and thus detected in both oneself andothers. And that is a crucial ability. For just as a real machine can spring free of itsoperator and start running out of control, so can mental mechanisms. When thathappens—beware! For, by controlling entire behavior patterns, the “machines”can actually deprive an individual of the ability to think and act for himself,without his even suspecting it.Fortunately, there is a remedy and it lies in what Ron calls “the verycentral pin of existence,” which every living being possesses and no mentalmechanism can withstand. Thus one can gain control of the machinery ofthe mind and, by so doing, actually take charge of one’s own life.
