Coined by L. Ron Hubbard.
- The creation of turbulence between two or more terminals.
- The process of enturbulating, of agitating or disturbing.
Terminals in this instance are people (or groups of people) who are in communication with each other.
Enturbulation may be a result of unresolved conflicting agendas between the parties or an intentional ploy by one or more of the parties.
Enturbulation may be created by factors external to those in communication. These include parents, peer groups, supervisors, deadlines and/or political actors. Enturbulation may also be caused by those disembodied spirits that Scientology calls Thetans.
