SCHIZOPHRENIA, 1. the most prevalent “mental disorder” is supposed to be schizophrenia. This means “scissors” or two plus “head.” A two-head in other words. And in this case two heads are not better than one (joke). You see this in institutions. A person is changing valences (personalities) click -click- click, one to the next. But the condition is a gradient one that worsens between sanity and the bottom of the scale. Midway, the condition is common but almost never noticed. It is so common today that it passes as normal humanoid. The person is not doing what he is doing. Examples of this are: people who do not like a job with responsibility because they “like to do mechanical things so they can dream of something else before they can”; persons who are out of area; persons who continually make dev-t. There is also the person who rams sideways into the work of others with “mistakes”, “demands” and prevents them from doing what they are doing while himself not doing what he is doing. One can’t say these people are crazy. Not today. But one can say they make problems, which are very difficult unless you know how to unlock the riddle. (HCO PL 3 Apr 72) 2. a withdrawal from reality. (7202C22 SO) 3. schizophrenia is the HC list madly out on the point of disassociation. (7202C22 SO)Hubbard, L. R. (1976). Modern Management Technology Defined.

SCHIZO, nickname for schizophrenic. It is an odd misnomer in that it means split personality and the trouble with a schizo is that he needs splitting, not that he’s split. He’s in another’s valence and what is required is to remove or split the preclear out of that other’s valence. (PAB 106)
SCHIZOPHRENIC, 1. the original definition of schizophrenic or “scissors personality” was in observation of shift of identity. A case which is very heavily charged goes into valences so completely that the person sharply and distinctly changes personality and appearance when shifted from one valence to another. (SOS, Bk. 2, p. 200) 2. the schizophrenic is an individual who has several portions of the analyzer segmented off by different circuits, which are actually valences, and who goes from one to another of these portions of the analyzer, only occasionally, if ever, becoming himself. (SOS, Bk. 2, p. 49) 3. an idea that one is two persons, which is remediable by a discovery of the life continuums being dramatized by the individual. (PDC 14) 4. the multi-valent aberee. (DMSMH, p. 125)
