What is an E-Meter?

# Comment by hostile on February 16, 2008 8:34 pm

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?

Answer:

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.

    “A Wheatstone bridge with good components and accurate calibration can be a precision instrument.”

    Right. A rain is wet and water is wet. Is this a logics test or what? Maybe I should say: The E-Meter is more than just a Wheatstone bridge and its purpose is entirely different.

    “Would you call this a required donation? (Is purchasing an E-meter required for the upper levels?) Or is it more like a company making a profit?”

    Yes, an E-Meter is required at some point on The Bridge, so that is a “must”. Except it does not have to be a “Planetary Disseminiation Meter” (which costs double of the others because the price includes a donation for dissemination purposes).

    A “company making profit” is something else because all “profits” of the church are used for church expansion, social programs and religious activities. Confirmed by the US tax authority, the South African tax authority and dozens more all over the world where Scientology was recognized as a bona fide, tax exempt, charitable, religious organization.

    A Wheatstone bridge with good components and accurate calibration can be a precision instrument.

  • What is this blog?

    I am running a website, ScientologyMyths.info which deals with critical questions about Scientology.
    So naturally I am into finding answers to the questions that are constantly being asked all over the internet about Scientology, Scientologists, the Church, L. Ron Hubbard and the Church's leader, David Miscavige. I want to find answers from independent sources, not only Church of Scientology owned sites or anti-Scientology hate sites. So what's left? Court documents, photos and other reliable sources. Help me find stuff and ask whatever you want. Thanks!

    The easiest way to shoot a question over to me is to click here.
