Scientology "stress tests" in San Francisco

The black box in the foreground is an "E-meter,"
a lie-detector type device used by Scientologists
to supposedly measure reactions within the mind.

Here a man holds cans connected to the E-meter,
which will actually measure the nervous reactions
on the surface of his skin. Scientologists believe
this device helps them "clear" the mind.
