"The has no engrams which can be restimulated to throw out the correctness of computation by entering hidden and false data in it" (Dianetics and Scientology: Technical Dictionary, pp. 75-76).
Under the heading , Hubbard wrote, "We seek only evolution to higher states of being for the individual and for Society" (Scientology: The Fundamentals of Thought, p. 120).
Scientology is filled with words which were either coined by Hubbard (e.g. Thetan) or are acrostics (e.g. MEST from Matter, Energy, Space, Time).
Not only is the Thetan immortal according to Scientology, but also "Hubbard discovered the means of separating the human personality from the body and mind (a process called astral travel by non-Scientologists).
Hence, Hubbard and Scientology would have America and the World believe that Man is an immortal Thetan, able to create MEST! However, not all MEST is good MEST. Sometimes MEST comes into conflict with the Thetan, resulting in an .
L. Ron Hubbard wrote early in his remarkably diverse and prolific career. It was, as well, an excitement he drew with consummate skill from a life of adventurous breadth and uncommon personal achievement—as an explorer and ethnologist, master mariner and daredevil pilot, filmmaker and photographer, philosopher and educator, composer and musician, and, always, before everything, as a writer and master storyteller. His boundless curiosity, his deep conviction that “To really know life you’ve got to be part of life. You must get down and look; you must get into the nooks and crannies of existence,” carried him across continents and oceans and through the wide realm of the human condition. And all of it, first to last, became part both of L. Ron Hubbard’s fiction and of the literary culture of our time.
Lafayette Ronald Hubbard is born in Tilden, Nebraska, on March 13, to U.S. naval officer Harry Ross Hubbard and Ledora May Waterbury. In September, they move to Durant, Oklahoma.
This engram is thus that "mental picture" which "...contains, as part of its content, unconsciousness and physical pain" and is stored in the individuals mind (Dianetics and Scientology: Technical Dictionary, p. 114). But which mind?
The Hubbard family lives briefly in the city of Kalispell, Montana. An early bond of friendship is formed in the fall of 1913 as young Ron dances to the beat of Indian drums and impresses Blackfeet Indians at a tribal ceremony held on the outskirts of town.
From there, the Hubbards move to just outside of Helena, Montana, where the family ranch, affectionately referred to as the “Old Homestead,” becomes their home. In the harsh frontier winter months, they retreat to a three-story brick house on the corner of Fifth and Beatty in Helena. Here, in the “Big Sky” country of pioneer Montana, young Ron learns to read and write at an early age, rides horses and breaks broncos, pans for gold, and is honored with the status of Blood Brother of the Blackfeet Indians by age six.

The Hubbard family moves to Tacoma and Ron joins local Boy Scout Troop 31 in April. In mid October, his father is ordered to report to Washington, D.C. The Hubbard family boards the USS Ulysses S. Grant on November 1, sailing from San Francisco to New York through the newly reopened Panama Canal. During this voyage, Hubbard meets U.S. Navy Commander Joseph “Snake” Thompson, recently returned from studies in Vienna with Sigmund Freud. In the course of the friendship that follows in Washington, D.C., Commander Thompson introduces him further to Freud’s theories and encourages him to conduct his own investigations into the nature of the mind.
Thus, the new data, given by Scientology is not merely a rearrangement of already existing beliefs and ideas. Rather, it is completely "new" material, which is precisely what is needed for the "new education."
As Scientology endeavors to render this MEST mess intelligible they write, "An engram comes about when the individual organism suffers an intense impact with MEST.
