Isn’t an E-Meter, just an overrated resistance measurer (that you could buy from any hardware store) hooked up to people instead of electrical circuits?
An E-Meter is worth nothing if it is not being used by someone trained in its usage. It is not a Wheatstone Bridge (that would be a resistance measurer, as you say) but a precision instrument to measure changes in the body of a person which are caused – that’s Scientology belief now – by mental changes of the person. The purpose is to locate mental stress, address it and get it out of the way in auditing. The E-Meters shows if there is such stress or not. The most expensive E-Meter is a lot of more expensive than its material costs because most of that money is used to disseminate Scientology. That’s not a secret. A Scientology parishioner supports the dissemination of his religion with such donations.
A description of the e-meter is also on the website now.
