Sorry kr, again you are wrong, what most people call the mind, is a function of the electro chemical interactions in the brain, without those electro chemical reaction we would not be able to think, to analyze or to remember anything. The brains itself stores memories which you are calling Mental Image Pictures. They can also be auditory and not visual as well though. You claim these pictures have mass, if that is indeed the case please point me to the scientific evidence of such existence.
Memories are indeed arranged in a chronological order. You make it seem as if the memories are essentially a video tape, however the example you gave earlier about the person knocked unconscious would only involve the audio recording and not a video tape because if the person’s eyes are shut they would not have the camera on to record visual images.
The reason psychologists, psychiatrist and counselors do not have an exact anatomy of the human mind, is because one does not exist and therefore neither does dianetics have the exact anatomy. Science has however begun to map the human brain and identify areas of memories, areas that allow auditory functioning, areas that allow visual functioning, areas that increase anger, areas that cause pain and so forth, (see this link: http://www.er.doe.gov/accomplishments_awards/Decades_Discovery/92.html). I agree that memories can be both visual (pictures) and auditory. I agree some people bury some memories that are harmful/painful and can have problems with them and can live relatively normal lives until something triggers those memories and causes problems. That is well documented in both the sciences of psychology and psychiatry. The practitioner of these sciences help those people deal with those memories when they are exposed. Perhaps there is some truth to the fact that Dianetics can help people bring those memories to the surface and deal with them before they become an issue, I do not know but I am open to looking at the scientific evidence to see if I would agree.
I agree, all people do have a subconscious which you are calling a "reactive mind" which is the part of their brain with all sorts of miscellaneous information which either does not need to be available and accessible in the conscious mind or is pushed back because it has negative and/or painful memories attached with it. Some of the subconscious/reactive mind is positive and allows a person to react quickly in situations where instincts need to kick in and part of it can be negative. I don't doubt that having the ability to openly access the items of the subconscious/reactive mind would be beneficial. If you have the knowledge of how that can be done, please provide the scientific studies and evidence that indicate how to do it.
Here is the definition of such:
1: a maxim widely accepted on its intrinsic merit because it is so obvious
2: a statement accepted as true as the basis for argument or inference
3: an established rule or principle or a self-evident truth
I fail to a single thing in this list that is widely accepted or is a self evident truth. I am will to let you walk me through them to help me see that though. Let us take your first axiom:
Axiom 1: The source of life is a static of peculiar and particular properties.
First of I am not sure what you are calling the source of life, to me it would be that which most people refer to as God. That is it is the energy that animates everything in the Universe. I am not sure what you are referring to as a static. Here is the definition of static:
1: exerting force by reason of weight alone without motion
2: of or relating to bodies at rest or forces in equilibrium
3: showing little change <a static population>
4: a: characterized by a lack of movement, animation, or progression b: producing an effect of repose or quiescence <a static design>
5: a: standing or fixed in one place: stationary b of water: stored in a tank but not under pressure
6: of, relating to, or producing stationary charges of electricity : electrostatic
7: of, relating to, or caused by radio static
Which of these definitions of static are you intending to have applied in this particular “axiom?” And how is this relevant to the conversation we are having.
We will have to go through these one at a time if I am going to be able to make head or tails of what you are trying to say here, I am a very literal, scientific minded individual.

We can treat the BRAIN all day long & the person will get worse. We apply the axioms of Dianetics to the mind & the person gets better. Every time.
Again just because the eyes are shut & the ANALYTICAL consciousness is shut off does not mean that the REACTIVE mind is not recording. It is in full.
I have accessed too many memories to be told otherwise & the people I have worked with have gained or regained abilities due tot he therapy.
Results substantiate the technology & the ideas behind it.
Point is, heal the mind you can heal the body or accelerate that healing process.
A) Stupidity is the unknownness of consideration;
B) Mechanical definition: Stupidity is the unknownness of time, place, form and event.
C) Truth is the exact consideration.
D) Mechanical definition:Truth is the exact time, place, form and event.
Thus we see that failure to discover truth brings about stupidity.
Thus we see that the discovery of truth would bring about an as-isness by actual experiment.
Thus we see that an ultimate truth would have no time, place, form or event.
Thus, then, we perceive that we can achieve a persistence only when we mask a truth.
Lying is an alteration of time, place, event or form.
Lying becomes alter-isness, becomes stupidity, (The blackness of cases is an accumulation of the case?s own or another?s lies.)
Anything which persists must avoid as-isness. Thus, anything, to persist, must contain a lie.
