 The Scientology / Dianetics Comparative Theology Page
Dianetic auditing requires that the "basic" engram, upon which later similar engrams are tied, must be found to clear the entire chain.
"An Experimental Investigation of Hubbard's Engram Hypothesis (Dianetics)", showed that Hubbard could not retrieve an engram, therefore his R6 hypothesis is baseless.
Dianetics was positioned as a "Science of the Mind" or an alternative to psychiatry.

 Engram - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
According to Dianetics an engram is a recording in the mind that occurs when a person is unconscious.
The existence of engrams is posited by some scientific theories to explain the persistence of memory and how memories are stored in the brain.
The term engram was coined by Richard Semon and explored by Anton Pavlov.

 Dianetics
An engram is defined as "a definite and permanent trace left by a stimulus on the protoplasm of a tissue.
When the engram is restimulated in one of the great many ways possible [such as hearing a car passing by while the faucet is running and a chair falls over], she has a feeling that she is no good, a faker, and she will change her mind
The engram this woman has received contains a neurotic positive suggestion....She has been told that she is a faker, that she is no good, and that she is always changing her mind.

 L. Ron Hubbard developed Scientology and Dianetics, which claims to make enlightenment scientifically achievable
After his experience with the POWs, Hubbard began the formulation of Dianetics primarily on the premise that it is the mind that acts on the primal directive of survival and, in turn, directs life in the effort of survival.
In other words, if you stumble on a rock in a hilly area and break your leg, the engram created would equal the pain of the broken leg to the rock, the hill and everything else in the surrounding.
In fact, unlike most religions of the world, whose genesis can be traced to metaphysics of the soul, Scientology came into being from a science of the mind called Dianetics.

It is the purpose of Scientology, through its auditing efforts to rid the thetan of all engrams so that in turn that thetan, who now possesses a new educational perspective on reality, as a result of the auditing, may advance to a higher state of being or Clear.
Once the engram is openly expressed by the pre-clear (Scientology student), then "Auditing gets rid of unwanted barriers that inhibit, stop or blunt a person's natural abilities as well as gradiently increasing the abilities a person has so that he becomes more able and his survival, happiness and intelligence increase enormously.
This engram, whether it be remembered or not, due to unconsciousness which accompanies every engram, is stored in the reactive mind and causes the thetan to believe false data [erroneous ideas].

 L. Ron Hubbard developed Scientology and Dianetics, which claims to make enlightenment scientifically achievable
Your reactive mind will immediately throw up the engram of the broken leg, and the secondary image of another person meeting with an accident, giving you the impression that the road ahead is dangerous, forcing you to turn back.
Dianetics terms any individual who is yet to erase his/her reactive mind a 'preclear' as opposed to a Clear—the term given to a balanced, effective and whole individual who has erased his reactive mind entirely through auditing—having discharged all physical and emotional pain from it and recovered the memories that pain had covered up.
The reactive mind then throws the engram back to the organism in any situation where the elements are similar to those found in the engram.

When the Reactive mind is emptied, or cleared, of all Engrams, the person is declared a CLEAR, and from then on the person is able to utilize his or her mind to the utmost, operating on a heretofore unknown level of abilities.
I have previously mentioned the example of a child whose engram stated "You've got to take it." This child grew up to be a kleptomaniac because the reactive mind literally interpreted this statement in the engram, although it was actually the father yelling at the mother while raping her.
The whole point of dianetics is that these two minds cannot communicate and are completely separate.

 The Official Scientology and Dianetics Glossary
It is a recording in the reactive mind of something which actually happened to an individual in the past and which contained pain and unconsciousness, both of which are recorded in the mental image picture called an engram.
engram bank: the reactive mind, that portion of the mind which works on a stimulus-response basis (given a certain stimulus it will automatically give a certain response) which is not under a person’s volitional control and which exerts force and power over a person’s awareness, purposes, thoughts, body and actions.
In Dianetics and Scientology it is called the reactive mind.

 The Mind Benders, Scientology - Chapter 4 - Cyril Vosper
Chronic psycho-somatics are caused by the incessant restimulation of an Engram.
With Dianetics and later with Scientology, there has been an attempt to state in more than meaningless abstractions the composite of the mind.
The energies of which the mind is composed are of the same family as 230-volt alternating current or sunlight but they are of such fine wavelength as to be unmeasurable at this time.

 Jeff Jacobsen - Medical claims within Scientology's secret teachings
Dianetics is a theory of the mind in which an "auditor" guides a "preclear" through isolated past incidents in the preclear's life and "runs" the memory called an "engram" until it clears up within the preclear's mind.
This process called "auditing" is done with an "e-meter", a crude galvanic skin response meter that supposedly helps find and "run" problematic memories.
