What is the Plausibility Question (PQ)?

Eight General Questions:

1. Are doyle memories or doyles - self-aware entities in any sense?

I like "doylmems" for short since I type it a lot. More informative than the word "doyle". No, they are not self-aware entities, but they reside inside of a self-aware entity. Do entities outside of the human kingdom, animals, for example, have doylmems? I think so, but have no research data to point to. Would make a great dissertation study.

2. Is there a qualitative difference between the motor-doyle and the other type of doyles?

I used motor-doyles to refer to operations with one's limbs and digits. Children who learn a lot of motor doyles before five will have more manual dexterity than those who don't. Most doyles, btw, affect muscle groups, but certain internal doyles have to do only with the homeostasis of internal organs such as the heart, liver, spleen, pancreas, stomach, kidneys, etc, and do not affect directly what we normally call muscles.

3. Is there a difference between a feeling and a doyle?

A feeling can stem from an instantaneous physiological response (pain when someone pulls your hair) or a feeling can stem from a triggered doyle (you get upset and yell at the person pulling your hair). The key is: live or Memorex? that is: Live or Stored Doyle?

4. If one sheds all (good as well as bad) doyles - would one become comatose?

That raises the question: "Why would anyone do such a thing?" Lacking an example of such a crazy behavior, I'd say no. One could not do such a serious thing while one is joyful and remove joy because the two feelings are mutually incompatible. Thus, there is no fear that you would accidentally remove a good feeling so far as I am concerned.

When you remove doylic memories, you simply clear out the emotional presents of the past which were stored before five years old. Those doylic memories remain present until or unless converted into cognitive memories. If you were to remove all doylic memories, you would more alive and present in the here-and-now because you would react only to events occuring around you. No doylic memories from the past would arise to interfere with your thoughts and actions. If confronted by a scary situation that would have before paralyzed you in fear, afterward you would quickly react appropriately to escape or overcome the situation. It is in this sense that you would be more alive. And it's for this reason that we have adopted the motto for the Doyletics Foundation: "When in Doubt, Trace it Out." If you're unsure whether some onerous feeling or reaction to a situation is a doyle or not, trace it out. It's your way of asking your body the question, "Is this a doyle or not?" If the answer is "Yes" the doyle will thenceforth be gone from your life. If the answer is "No" it was simply some physiological response (or your trace was defective, so try again next time).

There's another consideration: Part of feeling ALIVE is having appropriate and good feeling doyles, so you will not want those eliminated. It could turn you into a Mr. Spock of Star Trek fame, who was very alive, but always had to explain to Dr. McCoy why he reacted so strangely to situations which generated doylic responses in other people. To be fully human is to have doylic memories. To be normal is to have doylic memories. "Enjoy the good ones and trace away the bad ones" seems to be the best policy to be fully human from now on.

Consider how certain autistic persons have little if any emotional content in their lives. This came about not from tracing away doylic memories, but by their never storing them in the first place. This is due to their precocious ability to store cognitive memories before five, sometimes near birth, and thus few good or bad doyles were stored. The few doyles stored are treasured by autistics and they will seek to experience those few feelings over and over again. This explains the prevalence of perserveration, in such repetitive actions as rocking in a chair (pleasure) or knocking their head against the crib (pain). Perseveration is defined as continuing an action long after the original stimulus is gone and doylic memory is an example of perserveration, one that is common to all human beings, to a greater or lesser extent. Autistics have doylic memories, but very few of them compared to other human beings. They have, in compensation, a much advanced ability to make cognitive and conceptual images.

In some functioning autistics, they are able to simulate laughter and happiness so well, that they seem as normal as anyone else or almost so. But consider this: How can you confirm the emptiness of what they may be feeling compared to the fullness of your feeling of happiness? This is so difficult. I have tried this, and so far have no good plan on how it can be done. Another excellent dissertation research project.

5. What does doyletics teach us about upbringing children? what activities are good up to age 5 considering the findings of doyletics?

Parents should expose a child under 6 to every kind of good activity possible and minimize their exposure to caregivers who may expose the child to anger and other bad doyles. If the child is exposed, it is quick and easy to do a speed trace because the child is so young. Simply say, You're feeling angry now. Child nods. I wonder if you were feeling angry a year ago. If child does not nod, the trace is over. The anger which got stored with the baby sitter episode of the night before has been converted to a cognitive memory (if the child is about 3 or older, some early cognitive ability is present, enough to trace the doyle.) Lots of work needs to be done in this area.

Example: if a parent wants their child to be musical, expose them to hearing and singing exactly on key and tell them the names of the note they're hearing/singing. In this simple way, the child can grow up with perfect pitch. So far no one to my knowledge has used the principles of doyletics in this way, but look at musical prodigies: invariably they grew up in exactly such an atmosphere.

6. What about instinctual reactions - instinctual memories and reflex responses? Are they doyles too or there is a basic set which is genetic/hereditory?

All instinctual reactions of human beings are doylic in origin. There is no need to postulate a genetic or hereditary origin. The animal kingdom has instinctual responses but human do not.

A couple of definitions you need to memorize to keep this straight:

Genetics is the science of the acquisition and transmission of physical body TRAITS or genes.

Doyletics is the science of the acquisition and transmission of physical body STATES or doyles.

When a parent gets angry in front of a 3-yr-old child, they transmit the doyle of anger to the child.

7. Is the concept of doyle applicable to other animals too? Other primates?

Primates are not human. As such they possess instinctual memories, humans don't. It would make sense given that, that humans have abilities primates do not have. For example, primates do not stand erect, human beings do. This is evidence of a deep difference in humans and primates which has never been bridged and never will be, rightly understood. Darwin got that part about evolution very wrong.

8. Is Anger a doyle? Fear a doyle? Love a doyle?

You ask about emotions which are complex combination of feelings and mean something different to each person. The reason for the difference is that doylic events are different for each person. The word "love" to one person means a different set of doyles firing off than it does to their closest friend, even a spouse. Girls get a different set of doyles than boys, do they not? Look at their childhood activities for the source of this difference.

In short: Emotions are composed of doylic memories. Unwanted doylmems which comprise the complex called "anger" can be traced and erased with the goal of making one's anger more under control and less upsetting to the other person. As for removing "ANGER" per se, ALL of the doyles, I don't think it can or should be done. That's just my opinion on the matter.

Question Topic: Getting Started - the first speed trace, food dislikes, etal

Question: I'm 58 years old and started out as an engineer. I now do computer consulting for a large New York bank. I believe my training in engineering and computers is getting in the way of my success in completing a speed trace. I think, rationalize, and analyze too much - so nothing happens. I can't step aside and let the process work. I have allergies and asthma, so stuff to work on comes up every day.

As per your suggestion to beginners, I've searched for a food dislike and came up empty. Has anyone else been in a similar predicament, Bobby?

My personal experience was to do another trace first only to find that I'd lost several food dislikes later as a result of that first trace on a certain tone of voice I used that caused my wife to feel pain in her gut. I found out through analyzing my gut that the tension in my gut needed to produce the tone was the same tension I felt when I tried formerly to eat sauerkraut and liver. Apparently I'd stored that doyle while eating those foods before five when my dad blasted my mom with that tone for serving those two foods that he didn't like. The tension in my gut protected me against the tone of my dad and was automatic. My wife didn't have that automatic response of tensing her gut so the same tone caused her pain in her untensed gut.

Does that make sense to you? It's a key to understanding what a doyle and a food dislike is: A Set of Muscle Tensions triggered by the thought, smell, taste, etc of a certain food. Note that the triggering event, my dad's tone of voice, had NOTHING to do with the food except that I was eating or smelling it at the time -- the tone had already triggered in me the gut tenseness doyle probably when he did it for the two foods [must have been two events, since it's not likely we would have had both foods at one meal]. But when he used that tone, the tenseness, tone, and the food smell/tastes could welded together into one doyle. My dad neither lived with me as an adult nor did he have occasion to use that tone while I was eating, as an adult, so that portion of the associative memory never got triggered.

But, since the food smell and taste are components that are ALWAYS around during eating, those became the triggers for my now non-existent food dislike. Our favorite sandwich is a Reuben sandwich which requires sauerkraut, and every time I have one I am presented with proof that the doyle trace works! Pate' and fois gras have also become favorites of mine. I now make giblet gravy for Thanksgiving like last Thursday and use the liver. That would have been irrational, unthinking, unanalyzable and incomprehensible just a few short years ago, pre-Doyle trace time.

Food dislikes are not dislikes of food! They are dislikes of the way your body feels when you think, smell, taste, eat, or swallow the food. Important point to remember! The smell/taste triggered the gut tenseness and I couldn't bear to be around any food that made my gut react so strongly.

It's not necessary to start your tracing experiences with a food dislike trace. I didn't, obviously. But it will give you a confirmation of a successful trace, whereas more subtle traces will leave you unsure and lead you to drop the tracing completely. That's primarily why I recommend food dislike traces.

Here's some suggestions for finding a food dislike:

[I note that at age 58, you will have done unconscious speed traces to remove most of your prior food dislikes. I did one with several foods before I stumbled upon Doyle Henderson's original work. Macaroni and cheese was one for me.]

Ask your parents or older siblings, if any, what foods you hated as a child. [You may find some you forgot about or have avoided eating so successfully as to have generated amnesia for them.]

Imagine yourself attempting to eat things that are gross looking or smelling -- things no sane person would consider eating and they would likely move away from smelling.

[note the muscle tone changes in your face and jaw. those are doyles -- it's not that you would ever want to eat those things, but those facial expressions may show up in many contexts where you'd prefer them not to, so a doyle trace of them will useful for training yourself in a doyle trace as well as removing an unwanted doyle.]

The other option is tackle one of the allergy or asthma symptoms. Once you've done several speed traces successfully, then do it when you have some mild allergy symptoms, right at the onset. You want to trace the onset doyles as they act as a gateway to more pronounced symptoms. As for asthma, you'll want to do a very fast trace before using the inhaler and you'll be the best judge of how long to wait. Some people, after doing several traces, can start their traces right at five years old. "I'm five and I'm experiencing this doyle, etc." Try this if you have limited time before you need to use the inhaler. The best approach is to begin a full trace very early as you sense the onset of an asthma attack, long before you would use the inhaler. If the trace works, you'll won't know if it was false alarm or a successful trace, but keep a record of the frequency of attacks and note if the frequency is reduced. It's possible that you may have to do several traces to remove all the asthma symptoms.

I'm hoping you will share your experiences with the List as it will give hope to other asthma sufferers. Frankly, I've had sketchy reports of asthma trace successes, but no fully documented ones, up until now.

I worked as a computer consultant myself -- my first computer experience was with IBM 1401s in 1964, then real-time process computers, mini-computers, etc, both hardware and software design.

I suspect that you are a strong thinker -- so I should tell you that thinking about what SHOULD be happening during a speed trace and judging whether is is happening or not AS THE TRACE is going on can be a stumbling block. Believe that it will work and follow the simple instructions, moving from one time mark to the next, and you will be successful.

Remember ONLY these TWO things are necessary:


Hold the doyle during the trace down to FIVE years old.

Go down the TIME MARKS in order from 58 till the doyle goes away.

[The fewer thoughts you have during this process, the better. Any thoughts not dealing with the trace process can trigger doyles and move you off the track of the doyle you've selected and nullify the trace. Thinkers have the greatest difficulty understanding this, up until now. This may help: Imagine that you're walking a labyrinth and your only job is to stay on the path. Any misstep will take you off the path and require that you start over from the beginning. You stay on the path by holding the doyle. The time marks are the path you follow while holding the doyle. Drop the doyle, and you have to start over. Miss the time marks, start over. Sometimes if you lose the doyle on the way down to Five, you can re-trigger it by thought, smell, taste, etc, and continue on the labyrinth without re-starting. Find out what works for you.]

As for thinking, analyzing, and rationalizing, their place is after the trace is over. Think over what I've said, analyze the process of the speed trace, discover its rational basis [it's an associative memory process as you can read in my new essay at: -- you've probably encountered associative memory in your computer work -- our brain doesn't have numerical memory addresses like computers, it has associative memory. You give it some part of a memory and it returns the rest of the memory or some larger part of it. When you present a pre-Memory Transition Age [MTA = 5 ] memory to the brain, it is shortstopped by the limbic system's amygdaline structures and a doylic memory is served up if one is found. If one is NOT found, then a cognitive memory is served up. Note that BEFORE the MTA, the process is different, all events are stored as doyles. No need to check if one is present, because if it is, the new one goes right on top of it, since the associative memory is the same or close enough. AFTER the MTA, NO doyles are stored so only retrieval occurs, if one exists. Lots of thinking and analyzing to be done after you learn to do the speed trace and I look forward to those kinds of post-trace comments from you.

As for not being able to step aside -- that comment indicates that you identify with your thinking -- you and your thinking are one and the same -- if that's so, then think about how you're unable to think your way out of these problems. You are NOT just your thinking. There -- does that feel better to you to read that? Use your thinking solely to go through the process of the trace and do it so quickly that no other thoughts have time to come up.

Holding a physical body state like a food dislike doyle of say, the sides of your mouth pulled back, does not require thinking, it requires willing. Will those muscles in place and go down the time marks. It will work. Suspend your thinking till the speed trace is over. There is no SPEED LIMIT on the SPEED TRACE. I've done some in a couple of seconds and they worked.

Question Topic: Diseases Amenable to Doyle Traces

Question: Can you really state that Doyletics functions for shingles based on only one person's experience? [See Shingles page.]

Doyle and I said it five years ago based on our understanding of how shingles stems from chicken pox without having a single case to point to. We didn't have a single case at the time to confirm that if someone did a speed trace on their shingles that it would go away before five. We only had a hypothesis that it would. Sure enough, in the first case it was tried on, Warren's severe pain and itching went away at three. He saw his scrawny three-year-old arm with spots on it. Exactly as we predicted it would happen five years ago.

It's hard to get statistics on when folks over fifty [usual shingles sufferers] had chicken pox as a child. Do you recall yours? I am 63 and have never had shingles. I asked my mom how old I was when I got chicken pox and she couldn't tell me. So I pondered the matter for a long time and came up with a memory of my hanging on the back fence looking over to my elementary school longingly -- I wanted to be in school and I was kept home with some childhood illness. It couldn't have been the usual ones, mumps, measles, because I would have been in bed; likely then it was chicken pox and at an age after 7 when I started school.

I never once mentioned shingles on the website or the doyletics list because I never had a single piece of data to point to, up until now. So, Yes.

Will it work for everyone who has shingles? I think so. Only time will tell.

Compared to the misery it causes, a 30 second speed, which can get rid of shingles forever from one's life, sounds like a no-brainer. It costs nothing but a minute or so [after a brief training exercise] and has no side affects. [Apart from the economic side-effects ($280 of pills Warren got from the hospital), I'll bet that bottle of 40 pills came with three sheets of other medical side-affects.]

It may be too soon to say it will work for everyone, but for those take the effort to learn the speed trace, I think it's safe to say: Relief is just a trace away.

Question Topic: Fears of Various Kinds

Question: Did you see the article in the newspapers about the fear of flying clinics? Particularly about their ineffectiveness and lack of attendance since 9/11 - have you ever considered that as a potential area of eliminating fears?

Fear flying and all the air travel fears, yes, it's a big business, and anyone into making money teaching and using doyletics to help these folks would have my blessing. It would be a full-time job. I've done many web searches looking into travel fears and there are more companies and ways to do it than one can shake a metal detector wand at.

I'm not interested in making toasters, but in getting people to understand electricity so that they can make toasters, tv's, and electrical cars if they wish. I consider myself vis-a-vis doyletics like Ben Franklin was with electricity. He flew the kite with the key on the end of the string and proved, once and for all, that lightning is electricity. It's real and it works.

"Now get busy, World, and learn to use it pervasively and productively in many ways." is the message I want to get out.

Question Topic: Bronchitis, Lung Infections, etc.

Question: Know any doyletics tricks to get rid of lingering lung infections?

Del, my wife of 23 years, had a heavy case of bronchitis every year, usually in January. She'd be miserable for weeks. Near death at times, it seemed to me. Heavy upper chest respiratory infection, coughing, difficulty breathing.

About four years ago she did a doyle trace on her symptoms. After completing the trace, she got an image of being in an all white room. She checked with her mom and found out that she had almost died as a three year old (the age the doyles went away during her trace) and had to be put in an oxygen tent which was a white sheet hung over her bed while oxygen was administered. Every year about the same time that she survived this initial bout of bronchitis, her body would generate the healing states from doylic memory storage and she would go through the whole recovery process once again.

Since the trace, she's had only small, normal colds and NO bronchitis. That's remarkable.

I don't claim that this will get rid of all bronchitis, but it will allow one to get rid of bronchitis caused by a memory of a bout before five.

If you had a bout of whatever it is you're having now before five, you won't be able to remember it. Don't ask your parents before you do the trace -- they won't remember it probably AND it won't help you much. Best approach is to do a doyle trace now while you're suffering the symptoms. If while you're tracing, you feel some alleviation of symptoms before five years old, then stop and ask yourself, "What's a plausible thing that could have happened to me at X years old?" where X is the age at which the symptoms let up. Then pay exquisite attention to every thought that pops into your mind. That will be your clue as to what happened. Then you might wish to ask your mom, dad what happened, or older sibling that might recall. you will be amazed.

Read about the 60 yr old who was stung by a scorpion at age three. It's on the website under Althea's Fear of Scorpions at After she did the trace she could remember the event, not before. And her mother confirmed the event as well.

Also go to the index10.htm page:

and click on some of the hypertext words and read the stories. Best place to learn to do the Speed Trace is the training.htm page at:

Please, if possible, start off with a simple food dislike trace first. If there is no food you dislike, think of putting something rotten or vile in your mouth. What happened when you thought of that just now? Did your face, jaw contort a bit? That was a doyle -- stored before you were five. Trace them now. Simply hold the contortions consciously and go down your time marks. Sometime before five, you'll feel the muscles relax of their own accord and if you try to re-trigger them with the same thought, they won't go back as strong -- the automaticity is gone! That's what a doyle is: automaticity! After the trace, you might be able to re-create the facial contortions consciously, but they won't come back automatically. This is easy to do and to confirm that it works.

Once you've done this simple trace, relax and feel all the symptoms of your lung infection, note all the aches, pains, ennui, breathing difficulties, etc, that you experience as part of the problem. Call these a "doyle" and say, "I'm 42 [use your current age], and I'm experiencing this doyle." That's your entry into the labyrinthine path into your doylic memory. Repeat for ages:

30 years old

Now switch to this mode: "I'm 4 -- am I still experiencing this doyle?" if "NO" you're done, ask the Plausibility Question now.
if "YES"[in other words, you check your symptoms and note no change has occurred], then continue down:

1 year old
9 months old
1 day old
-1 day old [say: "I'm at the day before I was born"]
-1 month
-7 [stop here]

If you get all the way to the bottom, you may still have done a successful trace, but didn't notice the symptoms. If so, repeat this later when you feel "worse" and the symptoms are stronger. Learn this process and use it whenever you're uncomfortable as a result of a memory or event in real-time that triggers something in you.

For more info, read about the immune system at:

[about halfway down the page, do a Find on "Immune"]

One more word on "Gateway Doyles": these are doyles that act as a link to other doyles. What's important about them is that if you remove a gateway doyle to an illness or disease, you will prevent a full-blown case of the disease. So doing traces on minor inconveniences, the first sign of a discomfort that you recognize may be the sign of some recurrent discomfort, may in fact prevent the severe discomfort from ever occurring.

Good luck with implementing the speed trace. Suggest that you have a friend help you with this if you don't feel well enough to go through the process alone. It helps to have feedback while you do the process to confirm that what you felt inside was visible outside to someone else.

Question Topic: Website, List, and Digest Concerns


I first heard about Doyle Henderson's work under the name PANACEA! and now I see it referred to as DOYLETICS. Why are there two names and what's the difference between the two?


The word doyletics refers to the science of the acquisiton and transmission of doyles, and Panacea! refers to Doyle Henderson's software program. My goal for doyletics is to take under its wing every aspect of Doyle's work except the selling of the software package, so that he may continue to sell it as long as he wishes. And I intend for the concepts of doyletics and its Speed Trace [ The MOSTtm ]to be a useful adjunct to those customers who buy the package. For the rest of the people in the world who wouldn't buy a software package, I want them to understand that everyone can become a doyletics expert in using the Speed Trace, and the ONLY person one needs to use it on is oneself. This is an essential difference between doyletics and other psychological and psychoanalytical fields -- there is no need for some expert to apply the technique to a client for a fee.
Doyletics is a memory technique. We can have teachers teaching the memory technique, but a memory technique is useless unless a one uses it on oneself!
My earnest goal is for there to be only people using the principles and techniques of doyletics on themselves., teaching it to their children. And children, learning it in schools, teaching it to their parents at home.


Surely if there were anything to this doyletics emotional memory stuff, humanity would have known about it for a long time. What do you say about that?


Yes, you're right. If there were any truth to the existence of an emotional memory that operates in parallel to our cognitive memory, people would have known about it for a long time. When people get surprised by a leaf, thinking it's a roach or a mouse, their heart begins beating fast and their respiration rate increases. What do they say? "I feel foolish, but it happened before I knew it." What they're saying is a deep truth: our emotional memory operates faster than our cognitive memory and thus our heart will receive a signal to beat faster before our cognitive memory can discard the signal as a false alarm.
Sigmund Freud wrote about "childhood amnesia" in one of his books. He said that most people have no memories of anything that happened to them much before five. Freud was talking about solely about cognitive memory, but he clearly stated the case for our knowledge of the onset of full cognitive memory capability beginning at five.


I am wondering about the World-Wide Doyletics List: is there any chance of virus contamination with this?


No more chance of virus than from any other email. There won't be any attachments -- as a rule you should never open an email with an attachment, unless you already have been told to expect it. When in doubt, check first.
What the Listserv does is the same as you would do with a Reply All -- it sends your Reply or Post to everyone currently on the list. The Listserv manages the List's subscribe's and unsubscribe's and allows you to view all the previous messages at any time. I manage who joins and leaves and will immediately remove anyone who tries anything suspicious, and ask questions later. Topica in December, 2001, stopped sending emails that have attachments to forstay the virus and worm problem. This is a text-only List and that makes it safer than regular email.


If I write something to the World-Wide Doyletics List, will it be held confidential?


My firm rule is that I won't publish anything on the website without the explicit permission of the person who wrote the material. If I am unable to contact the person who did the trace, then I will change any names and any other identifying details of the trace history.
The World-Wide Doyletics List is only accessible by subscribers, so things are a little looser there, but List members are cautioned not to write anything to the List that they wish held confidential -- any List member could post it elsewhere. With that one caveat, the List is designed to be a place where you can share things with others on the List without mentioning names and get feedback and suggestions about areas where you may be stuck. When I'm not available to answer questions, the List will ensure that there are others who can help those in need with tracing, understanding, etc. The List thus acts as a backup for me. If you send me an email and don't get a prompt reply, send the question to the List if your need is urgent -- someone will have an answer for you.

Question Topic: Speed Traces, Basic Theory, Applications


Doesn't the part of your baby's brain that will eventually help manage and control emotions undergo a growth spurt from 2 to 6 months of age?


This is not so, so far as my research shows. The neocortex may be said to undergo a spurt of development from 2 to 6 months -- it doubles in mass from birth to three-years-old. The two amygdalas, however, are full-grown and already working perfectly some six months before birth. It is these amygdalas, in consort with the limbic structures they are intimately connected to, that can best be described as the part of the brain that "helps manage and control emotions." But that's not completely accurate either because the amygdala does not control the emotions – its job is to store and retrieve the physical body states (which we call doyles) that comprise emotions. Given the presentation of an appropriate stimulus to the amygdala, the corresponding emotion will invariably be evoked. When a component of a system has the identical output upon presentation of a given stimulus, one cannot, by any stretch of the imagination, call that component a controlling part. If this part feeds up appropriate responses, it can be called a managing part in a very restricted sense, but even that ignores the intelligent variability that a manager brings to a task.


Aren't babies capable of demonstrating more varied emotions and moods, both positive and negative, during the time between 9 and 12 months of age?


It is true that most babies from 9 to 12 monthsof age are more capable of demonstrating emotions and moods than one at an earlier age. But there are notable exceptions to this rule. Autistic children are not more capable of demonstrating emotions and moods at this age, nor at any succeeding age, nor for the rest of their life. When one understands how the amygdalas operate invariably to retrieve previously stored physical body states, it comes as no surprise that stored emotions from an early age should be invariably re-evoked at later ages.
What is different about autistic humans is that at an early age, as early as birth for some of them, they began to use their precocious cognitive memory, and once they do that no more doyles are stored in their limbic system's amygdalas. Non-autistic children do not begin to use cognitive memory until the age of three and this new parallel adult-type memory capability does not take over all memory storage until the age of five years. Thus non-autistic children seem "capable of demonstrating more varied emotions and moods, both positive and negative" as they grow older, but even that developmental process tapers off and stops when they reach five-years-old.
After five, there is no significant difference in autistic and non-autistic children so far as cognitive memory capability goes; what is significantly different is that autistic children have not stored the requisite variety of physical body states or doyles to be considered normal in this society, up until now. With more and more parents trained to recognize the symptoms of the precocious onset of cognitive memory capabilities in their small children, autistic children will come to be nurtured appropriately and will mature into superbly functioning adults as befits their advanced cognitive memory capability over non-autistic children.


Is it possible that some things that are now thought to be genetic will someday be discovered to have doyletic origins?


Yes, I definitely think so. Genetics can be defined as the science of the acquisition and transmission of physical body traits, and doyletics as the science of the acquisition and transmission of physical body states. I've seen many examples where a genetic origin was attributed to something I could clearly identify as doyletic in nature. Since the most common transmission is between parents and children of doyles, things that would seem to be genetic, simply because of the parent-child link, can easily turn out to be doyletic. Dispositions to anxiety, anger, depression, foods, etc., are more likely to be doyletic than genetic.


What term do you like to use to describe the speed trace procedure? Is it "mind manipulation", "memory manipulation", "thought control", "memory adjustment", "memory regulation', "memory adjustment", "memory training", or what?


One thing it isn't is therapy. It's a memory technique. One that can be used by individuals with little or no training. People do unconscious speed tracing all the time and they would certainly qualify as having done so without training. The Speed Trace is a procedure for converting doylic memory into cognitive memory. Can't be licensed or regulated, because anyone with a mind can do it without anyone else's permission.

Can therapists use the speed trace with their clients? You bet, and many do. Check the Counselor's Corner for examples of therapists who have used it successfully and innovatively to help people in need to make dramatic changes in their lives quickly and easily.


This doyletics question was posed by a member of the World-Wide Doyletics List How would you go about helping a child J___, one of a set of twin boys, that is hyperactive?


My wife, Del, had twin boys from her first husband. They were identical twins, so identical that their hearts beat at the same time and rate. What's important about that is this was before ultrasound imaging technology and the doctor could only discern ONE baby as present.

Del was gaining too much weight for one baby, so he prescribed a diet pill for her. Guess what as the drug-de-jour for dieting? AMPHETAMINES! Guess what amphetamine does for one? You guessed it -- it's popularly called SPEED, because it causes the body's processes to speed up. And Del because of this iatrogenic screw-up ended up with TWO HYPERACTIVE boys.

Her twins were given SPEED while still in the womb. They survived thanks to prodigious efforts by their mother to raise them and corral them and keep them out of trouble, etc. Both are celebrating their 35th birthday in a couple of days and are fine young men I had the good fortune and challenge to meet and help raise from eight years-old on.

Now back to J___'s hyperactivity. Surely his mother didn't get amphetamines prescribed, but perhaps you could examine what drugs she did have prescribed during the pregnancy. The twins got them as well. Were the twins identical? [Was there one placenta or two after the birth? That's the sure way to tell. If the egg split after fertilization, one placenta, and identical genes. If two eggs were fertilized, non-identical twins, different gene pool.] From what you've given us so far, that one is hyper-active and the other not, I'd suspect non-identical or what is called fraternal twins.

How old are the boys currently? This will help us to determine what kinds of doyle traces may be applicable.

I've been working on some ways that one might approach children for tracing doyles and will share that later. I'd like to hear from others on the list and website, while I consider my response.


How would you go about doing a trace with a young child from 5 to 10?


Here are my thoughts so far as I've gotten as of October 12, 2000. This is a work in progress. If we're going to meet our goal, which I hope all the members of the World-Wide Doyletics Community share, of getting doyletics taught in the schools of this new century, we're going to have to come up with a way of first applying speed traces to children from 5 to 12, and then ways of teaching them. Perhaps one leads to the other -- after you've help a child remove a few unwanted doyles and the kid says, "Can I try that on my own?" you have a kid who's willing to learn. That's a crucial first step.

Here's the good news about doing a speed trace with kids: they're very close to the Memory Transition Age of Five! [Note: I have had one example of doing a very fast or ultra trace with a woman whose difficulty was being produced from a personality part that seemed to be about five years old already. Read about it here.]

Plus they have an excellent imagination. They are very suggestible. All three of these things make for easy speed tracing, once we figure out how to actually do it with them.

Plus they don't already think that it's impossible to do it, which is a great stumbling block for many adults, isn't it?

Still you may think, "How can I get my child to agree to a speed trace when they're angry or cross or depressed or pouty and completely uncooperative?" Well, how good at being sneaky are you? Most parents I know would have never survived if they didn't have a few tricks in their bag, so I'll share this with you with no promises, but with promise.

Next time the kid gets sent to his room, invite a friend over or talk to one on the phone and let the conversation go like this, "I just sent my son to his room. He threw a angry fit and I sent him to time out." (now talk as if you're whispering, but in a stage whisper so he can hear you through the open door or the walls. I was a kid once and I know that I could hear my parents talk through the walls if it was about me. I listened closer if it was about me.) "He's 8 yrs old now, and I'm almost sure he acted like this when he was 7 yrs old, in fact, I recall him acting like this when he was 6 yrs old, and even when he was 5 yrs old." (note the switch that follows) "Now I don't remember if he ever acted that way when he was four. (pause) I'm trying to recall if he acted that way when he was 3 yrs old. (pause) Maybe he acted that way when he was 2 yrs old, but I'm not sure. You know, I don't know if he ever acted that way when he was one yr old, heck, he might have upset that way when he was just a day old, right out of the womb, but I was too out of it to notice. Maybe he was upset the day before he was born, kicking and screaming to get out -- I remember all the movement, etc. usually that will be far enough to go back.

How will you know if this works? Just watch his behavior -- you'll have to notice that similar triggers that got him upset before no longer have the same effect. Most likely you won't notice anything at all for a long time -- it's much harder to see something that's not there, but used to be there, especially when it's as subtle a thing as a behavior in a child.

If you do four or five of these surreptitious traces with your child, I guarantee that you will begin to notice big changes for the better. Good luck, Good doyles, and happy tracing.

What are the requirements for a successful trace?

It's not the ability to place one's mind at an earlier age! That was an early way we had of talking about it and while it has certainly helped many people, it has hindered perhaps as many. People with lots of internal dialogue get lost during the mind-placing thing. I have worked with a couple of these to help them learn to do speed traces which do not require anything but a simple calling out of the time marks, something anyone can do if they can speak outwardly or in their head.

So don't attempt to teach some kid how to place their mind at an earlier age -- won't work and ain't necessary.

Here's the two requirements taking directly out of the Basic Theory webpage:

One: holding a doyle

Two: hitting a time mark

If you have a child who is stuck in a doyle, or as I like to say it, a doyle is holding them, you have the first requirement satisfied already!

So the trick of the techniques will be to work out how to achieve the second requirement:

Getting them to access an earlier age. Note the subtle difference between access and place one's mind. The second is an active process done under conscious volition and will, the former is a passive process, one that can be done without conscious volition or will. Now children are led around all the time by parents and caregivers who get them to access things passively this way by making suggestions and the things they talk about to the children and talk about when the children just happen to be in the room or perhaps while the children are eavesdropping while in the next room.

So the second requirement can be easily met by talking to the child in some way that is appropriate to the particular child while they are holding an unwanted doyle, and leading them to think about when they were younger, one year at a time.

That's my model for doing speed traces with children, at this time.

Still that leaves open the procedure one uses, which is appropriate, it seems to me.

If you try this process with a kid, you will need an open-ended procedure that allows you to vary what you do in such a way that suits your interaction with the child. Children are not as amenable to fixed or set forms as adults are, have you noticed?

So, with that caveat, I'll offer my procedure, but remember use this only as a guide to the region, not as a street map to a specific destination. You will have to explore the region once you get there and build your own street map, a map that will be different for every child. Perhaps we'll evolve some procedure that works for many children, but that will only come after years of successful traces under our collective belts. We cannot expect to start off except as explorers of an uncharted region we have just been plunked down into.

Outline of Procedure for doing a Speed Trace with a Young Child:

Child of 7 Holding a Doyle [example]: [anger, let's say] Child's Voice in Quotes.

You're very angry now, huh?


I remember when you were six, you were angry like this.


Oh, yes, and once when you were five. Boy were you angry!

I don't remember if you were mad like this when you were four.


Three, when you were three, you were angry like this a lot!

non-verbal response from kid

Maybe even when you were two, huh?

non-verbal response from kid

You kicked me once when I was changing your diaper at one. So you were angry then.

non-verbal response from kid

The day after you were born, I don't remember if you were angry at all. That was a long time ago.

non-verbal response from kid

Maybe you were angry the day before you were born because you wanted to get out of the tight spot you were in, in Mommy's tummy.

non-verbal response from kid

Maybe a month before you were born you felt that way, angry.

non-verbal response from kid

Maybe two months, etc.

[end of procedure example]

Like in speed trace you're assisting someone through, you must carefully watch those non-verbal responses for signs that the doyle has disappeared, then STOP -- begin talking about something else immediately to distract the child -- offer them ice cream or some other treat they would like to give them immediate amnesia for what just happened so that next time you can start afresh without being given this, "Oh you're doing it to me again." Once you get those words by the way, treat it as an invitation -- treat if as if they're really saying, "I can do this myself."

During the trace, you must choose your words carefully to keep the child from moving to another doyle. Since most of the time you'll have them below five, you won't be able to tell for sure if they strayed to another doyle or removed the original angry doyle, e.g., you started with. So stop in either case and later notice if the angry doyle comes back, if it does, run the procedure again, avoiding whatever may have led you and them astray last time.

I wish I had four small kids living in the house with me currently to try this on, but those of you that do have small kids can apply this procedure by adapting it to the children you're dealing with. Haven't had a chance to apply it to grandkids. Usually they're well behaved when they're at Grandpa's house

Hope this helps get us started on this treacherous endeavor of leading kids in speed traces. If someone is successful in removing doyles from a seven-year-old several times, the child may then ask if they could try that on their own. "Well, I don't know if you can do it on your own, Junior. Would you like to try?" Then you explain the two requirements and tell the simple words to say:

"I'm 7 and I'm experiencing this doyle." etc. It may work ... we'll never know until we find out.

October 18, 2000 Read Email from Yvan Béguin

in which he details how he helped his son learn to do a speed trace.

Suggestion: Get a friend who knows what you're doing and try an indirect trace. The kid is in the room doing something else holding a doyle and you talk about with your friend, "I don't know if he acted this way when he was six. Or five. Or four. Or three. Or two. etc." The kid will be listening intently whether or not he seems to be or not! And he will do the trace even more effectively than if you were talking directly to him!

Long Question about Phantom Leg Sensation:

This is a pretty complicated question, but one thing that I find interesting is phantom limbs or phantom limb pain. You provided a link to it below, but I just don't see it's relevance to doyletics. I recently read the book "Phantoms in the Brain" and they discussed this very topic in some depth (not its relation to doyletics of course but you know what I mean). It seems that when someone suddenly loses and arm or a leg the motor area in the neocortex re-connects it's neurons to stimulate a different area of the body--thus giving the individual a sense that the arm or let is still present. It doesn't seem to me that the amygdale is involved in any way with this rewiring. That's just my understanding of phantom limb(s), if someone can explain to me how it could be related to doyletics I'd be interested.


I had a friend whose uncle had a missing leg and one day she reported that he asked her to scratch his missing leg for him under his foot where it itched. She was just 13 and said, "But Uncle Charlie, you don't have a leg or a foot there." "Yes, Honey," he said, "but my leg doesn't know that." She reported that when she scratched where the bottom of his foot might have been, he felt relief.
This is the kind of phantom leg pain I'm talking about, not what you mentioned below. I haven't read "Phantoms in the Brain" but their way of talking about re-wiring indicates to me a bad case of paradigm-lock. They assume the very thing they wish to prove and therefore they are correct and their statements are vacuous.
Phantom leg pain is localized in 3-D space even in the absence of the leg due to the generation of a remembered doyle of itching perhaps when one was below five. That's my hypothesis and it doesn't require some notion of re-wiring, as the process of "phantom leg pain" happens to everyone, except those that have a leg, merely scratch the leg and get relief, just like my friend's uncle did.
Take your choice. The choice I give you with my doyletics hypothesis doesn't require that something mysterious happens after one loses a leg. The same process happens before and after, only we interpret the results differently if one has or doesn't have a limb, up until now.
If we had cases of people without bodies, they would report phantom body pain or other sensations. These are what we normally call emotions or feelings. But, if one lacks a body, one lacks life, therefore we have no examples of that! The closest we get is people like Christopher Reeve, Superman, with a nearly severed spinal cord. Anyone's who seen him interviewed since his accident can attest that he experiences emotions in a body that is otherwise not connected to the brain, but the signals from the amygdala spread out to the phantom body anyway (via signals from amygdala to hypothalamus to sensory cortex -- all above the neck) and allow him to have emotions.
In my review of What Emotions Really Are written by Paul Griffiths, I point out how Walter Cannon, who lacked back in 1930 both the hypotheses of doyletics and the experimental work of LeDoux, assumed that if the spinal cord were cut one couldn't have emotions. When his experiments with dogs "proved" that to be the case, he trashed Wm James's great insights about emotions.
LeDoux's recent experiments with the amygdala have proved that Cannon's powder was wet and the Cannon was a dud! The amygdala/limbic system is perfectly capable of producing full body emotions in the absence of a body. It does so by re-creating the signals that would have been received by the sensory cortex via the hypothalamus from the sensors at the extremities of the body. The limbic system retrieves these signals from its storage in the two amygdalas and sends them via the hypothalamus to the sensory cortex, thus simulating the existence of the bodily sensors.
Remove the amygdala, and the signals stop! This is what LeDoux's experiments with rats proved. Thus we can easily see that there is no need to have sensors connected via the spinal cord to the brain for this to happen, it all happens above the neck! If Cannon had removed the amygdala instead of cutting the spinal cord, we've have been put on the right track 70 years ago, instead of being blinded to the truth about emotions, up until now.
Here's an excerpt from the review of What Emotions Really Are in my own words:

What led the James-Lange theory into disrepute were the efforts of skeptics such as Walter D. Cannon around 1930. He argued that experiments, in which the spinal cord of dogs were cut, showed that they were still able to display emotional responses like anger and rage. Since we know from doyletics that the amygdala-limbic system re-creates doyles by activating the sensors at the extremities of the body, cutting the spinal cord of a human would clearly not remove their abilities to express emotions.
My insight is so simple it's complex:

"Phantom leg pain in people who have legs is called real leg pain!"

I have enough personal experience tracing and removing local areas of itching and stinging pains in my own body to attest that doyles can create pain. Plus I know of others who have done similar things.
Anyone who has done such a removal knows in no uncertain terms that they removed a case of phantom pain from their very real limbs and bodies.
Thanks for asking this question -- you asked a great question. It is not an easy subject, and my email on the subject was written several years ago and is rather short, so some explication was certainly in order. The confusion about what constitutes feelings and sensation is rampant, and researchers are looking everywhere for answers.
Yes, some re-wiring takes place, but the author is attributing the existence of phantom leg sensations to that re-wiring, and while there may some minor truth to that, he's focusing on the flea on the elephant's back and ignoring the elephant, up until now!
I recall that the signals from the amygdala that go directly to the hypothalamus eventually lead to signals going to the sensory cortex and re-creating the IMPRESSION of sensory experience without need for the sensors being there at all! That's exactly what a doyle is: the impression of something happening now that actually happened before one was five. That's what memories are, aren't they? Something happening now (in your mind) that actually happened before! A doyle is something happening now (in your body) that actually happened before! That was the basic insight that Doyle had in the beginning. See the interview to read exactly how Doyle said it. I'll add this to the FAQ, btw. Thanks, Ted. Your question will help so many others who've read up on the subject to understand the basics of the cosmological insight of Doyle Henderson those thirty years ago.


Bobby, can you recommend any books that helped you or Doyle in your exploration of Doyletics? I'd like to follow your path of discovery to get a deeper understanding of the whole process myself, thanks.


You're in luck. In early 1987, I began writing essays about every book I read. The first 287 book essays are compiled into one volume called A Reader's Journey, Journeys into Understanding . That would give you some deep background of my path to discovery from 1987 to 1995. As it pertains directly to doyletics, which began in 1996, look at the very bottom of the Basic Theory page, and you'll find a full review on every book I read that impacted directly on doyletics. There's a couple on Autism that pre-dates the on-line reviews that are only available in the hard bound book ARJ.


I have had asthma since I was a child -- is it possible that my asthma originated as a doyle?


I don't have any direct experience of assisting someone doing a doyle trace of asthma symptoms, but it seems plausible to me that an episode of restricted breathing before five, with all its concomitant bodily responses, would have been stored as a doyle. Then, when that doyle is re-triggered later in life in the absence of any life-threatening reason for the restricted breathing, the bodily responses to the doyle would give one those symptoms commonly known as asthma. Anything that will open the breathing passages, like inhalers, would provide relief by removing the doylic trigger. My belief at this time is that, if an asthmatic were to trace the onset of an asthmatic attack and remove the doyle, there would be no more attacks.
Here's two cases of asthma I know of where a childhood episode of restricted breathing was involved. One, a friend walked into her 3-year-old son's dentist's office to find her son's nose was pinched shut by the dentist in an attempt to make the child open his mouth. As an adult the child developed asthma.Two, a friend of mine has his entire chest heavily scarred from a fire that he was in as a child. He became asthmatic thereafter. This is a field that is wide open for research, investigation, and ripe with potential to provide non-drug relief for asthmatics the world over.
Here's the closest evidence I have that a doyle trace may help eliminate asthma attacks: A close friend traced a doyle associated with her yearly bronchitis attacks each January. It's been four years and no recurrence. She got as the original event being in an all-white environment, and discovered later from her mother that at two, she nearly died from bronchitis and they put her under a white oxygen tent.
Another piece of evidence is provided by the case history of Valerie in removing her sickness caused from drinking rotten egg tasting water. She only traced the onset of the sickness, the minor stomach cramps, but never again did she get the full-blown vomiting and diarrhea as before the trace. It's been almost eight months now and she drinks the same water daily. This case indicates the possibility that many sicknesses that plague humanity may be relieved by simple doyle traces from now on.


I have visited the Web site and have tried doing several speed traces with indeterminate results. I haven't looked much further into the site, so I haven't read about the genesis of the technique, though it seems very similar to L. Ron Hubbard's (Scientology's) 'clearing' technique for engrams.


Forget the speed trace technique -- it may be valuable, but that is NOT the cosmological discovery of Doyle Henderson. His discovery is that we have two forms of memory -- cognitive memory and what I have named for simplicity's sake, doylic memory. Doylic memory is stored before five years old. My studies of brain structure in its ontogenetic development indicates that it makes sense that we would have doylic memory superseded by cognitive memory about the age of five, but the doylic memory continues to operate indefinitely after five. It makes sense, however, only after the hard work of Doyle Henderson to establish the basis for this understanding.
There are many age regression techniques, and Hubbard's is probably not more or less successful on the average than Janov's primal therapy or Freudian psychoanalysis. I admit I know much more about the latter two than the first, however, I know about the clearing instrument that is used to detect "clear." Without the understanding of doyletics, results will be sporadic [vary as the skill of the 'helper'] with any of the other methods that lead one back into one's childhood memories; i.e., work for some and not for "others" -- and "others" includes both memories and people. If you use ANY technique that works at random, you can learn it as an art, and get better than random success without being able to explain how you do it. Doyletics makes this art of the few into a science of the many. Everyone, no matter grade level they reached, even kids, can learn how to do the speed trace, and then do it on their own. Do it for things that bother them that they would never consider talking to a grownup about! [One need only review the abysmal statistics on teenage suicides to get a glimmer of how difficult teenagers find it to talk to their parents or other consellors about their deep problems, hurts, and pains. Truth of the matter is that this is also true of many adults, especially those undergoing the birth trauma associated with nearing the end of their lives.]
My goal is simple: to have doyletics and its simple speed trace technique taught in the grade schools of this nascent 21st Century.
Do you have any food dislikes? I highly recommend a food dislike for a first try. They are simple to do and immediate confirmation is possible. You trace something amorphous and you may take months to ever notice the change and by then you'll have forgotten what you did to initiate it.
If you're interested in learning to do the speed trace, describe to me your efforts in a food dislike or something you choose that is easy for you to confirm and I'll see what I can do to help you. Meantime, read the references at the end of the Basic Theory page. LeDoux is a good one to start with.

Question About the Plausibility Question:

I have a question for you. When you do the speed trace that's described on your website, are you always supposed to get something when you ask the plausibility question. I have tried some trace (primarily food dislikes) and I haven't ever really gotten any images or anything. The dislikes seem to disappear but I don't get any real insight into how they were created. Am I doing something wrong or what?


No, you're not "supposed to" get anything in response. Nor do you need to for it to be effective. You may need a little practice in knowing what it is you're likely to get, however, so I'll give you some hints. One hint is you'll only get a hint as to what the original event was that you just converted from a doyle into a cognitive memory. I found that the speed trace is very effective for everyone I've worked with, and many do get a hint of the original event if they ask the plausibility question directly when the doyle disappears. Why just a hint? Because the amygdala/limbic system is our primitive form of pattern recognition and storage and it mostly stores very indistinct black and white images, like 1900 Kodak Brownie snapshots, grainy and blurry.
Or you might just get a thought, some vague thought that crosses your mind, like it was for the woman that I helped remove a seasick-doyle last night. Her doyle disappeared as she went from time mark = 4 to time mark = 3. I asked her, "What's a plausible thing that could have happened to you at 3-years-old that would have stored that doyle in you?" She said, "I don't know." But I could see that she had pondered something, so I asked what she had thought about. "I remembered being deathly seasick when I was eleven. My grandparents lived in Germany and we took the boat across from England, and it was choppy. So I was thinking maybe we went on a similar trip when I was three." I suggested that she ask her "mum" in England if they did, and very likely the answer will be yes.
That's how subtle the process is! You may not get an image, but whatever you "think about" is a result of the cognitive memory your brain had just stored and which you asked for when you asked yourself the plausibility question. Makes sense?
During the interview in El Paso, Lorena's doyle went away at 3, but just to be sure, I took her back another year to 2. We talked for a bit, and when I asked her the PQ, I'd forgotten the year and asked her "What's a plausible thing that happened when you were two?" instead of three. Well, since we know it didn't happen to her until three, she got no answer. That's the only time I or someone I've worked with hasn't got anything in response, and it was because I asked the question "wrong." But the insight that comes from that to me is to be sure to ask it for the correct year -- if you go before the original event year, it won't work, because there was no event before that time.

Remember this MOST IMPORTANT function of the Plausibility Question or PQ:

No need to wait 2 or 3 weeks to find out if the doyle returns. You know immediately that a speed trace has worked because a speed trace transforms a doylic bodily memory into a COGNITIVE memory, and getting plausible explanation for the original event demonstrates immediately that you have done just that: COGNIZED a DOYLE!

Question on How to Remove a Smoking Addiction:

Smokers who have given up often experience a great desire to smoke again after seeing certain images (i.e, someone else smoking) or smelling secondary smoke. Is it possible to do a speed trace to remove a smoking addiction?



Addictions stem from someone making a connection between a physical body state and something which produces it artificially. The shortness of breath that is associated with smoking comes from the active ingredient, nicotine, which speeds up the heart but not the the respiration. Thus, one is artificially put into the position of having too much blood pumping without enough oxygenated air to mix into it.

An automobile analog is the engine is running too rich --- gas is pouring from the carburetor without enough air added to create an effective mixture and the car chugs along running rough rather than running smoothly.

As a child, one may have experienced a heart-speedup without a concomitant respiration speedup. If one's mother smoked, one got the nicotine signal through the blood stream before birth. If she didn't, but one was around ANY SMOKER between birth and age 5, BINGO! a doyle gets stored. The smell of smoke will trigger the doyle and one's heart rate/respiration will get out of kilter. One recalls the doyle and it feels "good" -- good is not an evaluative term here, but merely a descriptive one. One in general likes to recall feelings one had from before five. With a cigarette in one's mouth, the feeling can be extended indefinitely, especially for chain-smokers.

To break the cycle, one stops smoking till one "can't take it anymore" then one does a speed trace on the doyles that arise. Cant' make it any simpler than that.

Then one goes as long as one can without smoking again. At the point where one "can't take it anymore" one does another trace. It may take a succession of traces, but eventually they will all go away.

Most people who quit smoking that I've known do it "cold turkey" through sheer will-power. By using the speed trace to eliminate those onerous doyles that arise after one quits smoking, those who lack the will-power otherwise to go cold turkey will find it possible to do it quickly and easily.

[Note: they should learn the basics of a speed trace before attempting to erase a smoking addiction. The minimum training required is that they do a food dislike removal via a speed trace, so that they will have at least ONE confirmed speed trace under their belt.]
