This quote also shows Hubbard practicing medicine without a license in 1950 as well as his heavy borrowing from Freudian psychotherapy. Note that Hubbard calls Dianeticists "patients" and speaks of hypnotherapy and deep analysis in the quote. This quote clearly shows that Hubbard did not originally create Dianetics as a religion but as a therapy. Once the APA rejected his offers of Dianetics and he went broke in Kansas, Hubbard decided to try the "religion angle." Organized Religion in America has more than a few perverts as leaders, so Hubbard fit right into the subcategory of Religion-As-Scam in the US. True to his Black Magick roots, Hubbard re-conjured Dianetics as Scientology and thus began a run that lasted until 2005 when the Working began to collapse.

If you have a patient who is getting blank-outs during a certain
period, a patient who is sure somehow that he has had
homosexual relationships with somebody but can’t tell you
when or where, you start looking into hypnotism.
You may not find it, because one of the chief weapons of the
pervert is hypnotism. He uses hypnotism quite freely. I have
found many incidents of hypnotism used for perversion.
Even worse than that, you very often find that by contagion
of aberration the person will go out and dramatize the engram
without knowing it ever happened to him. He merely thinks,
“Well, that’s something to do,” so he is liable to hypnotize
The standard pervert session of hypnotism seems to wind
up, “Now, if you told anybody that this had happened, they
would never believe you!” Or if it is done to a young boy,
“Your mother and father would of course drive you from your
home if they knew about this. If you told them anything that
had happened here, they would not believe you. In fact you
can’t believe it yourself. You don’t think anything has
happened here at all.”
That perversion sequence may contain such a thing as “You
are a woman,” or if a woman is using it, “You are a man,”
and so on. It will be a hard engram to tackle in that it will be
completely out of view.
You may find this once in a hundred cases, although the
percentage to date has been about one out of 95 cases,
which is about one percent. This is only a series of about 180
so it is not a good statistic, merely a guess.
None of these remarks are leveled at hypnotists at all; they
are leveled exclusively at a practice which you will find in
Hypnotism may still have enormous therapeutic or
anesthetic value. In addition to that it is an excellent
research tool in Dianetics. But it is not something with which
you would toy idly. It has real horsepower in it.
You will discover hypnotic therapy or deep analysis in quite
a few patients who have undergone psychoanalysis. Deep
analysis is a practice of discovering hidden data and delivering
unto the patient insight regarding that data.
