The book Dianetics...

Post by duhast1 » Tue Feb 27, 2018 9:23 pm

Dianetics disproves itself, or more properly, the introduction to Dianetics disproves it. Deal with it.
In this respect the laws of DIANETICS are like the law of gravity: if you suspend a mass heavier than air above the ground and then remove the support, it will fall. It won't fall seventy per cent of the time or eighty per cent of the time; it will always fall. And if it doesn't fall, we are justified in re-examining the law.

Read this book. You may get an idea of where Hubbard actually discovered Dianetics™.

It was called abreaction therapy. In Trauma and Recovery, Judith Herman mentions it and explains why it is no longer used in treating post traumatic stress.

Abreaction therapy and current post traumatic stress therapy are used to help people recover from traumatic stress, not to become clear™.

Hubbard attempted to fool the Navy into believing he had been suffering from acute neurosis?

LOL...imagine if Christianity trademarked "saved" "crucified", "resurrection", and "God"...

I think it's in Bare Faced Messiah. It's my understanding that Hubbard collected disability related to his stint in the Navy until his death, long after he had completely "healed himself" with Dianetics™.

I've heard the claim LRH getting money through the Sea organization. He didn't claim what was being giving to him while receiving veteran benefits. How he was living seems mysterious.

When you read the stories of those who worked closely with Hubbard and then left you will get some answers.
