Someone posted the first video linked to below and while I watched it a lot of the stuff Hubbard tried to pass off came to mind. See if it does for you. I also found the video accessed by the second link interesting because Feynman uses the game of chess as a means of illustrating what is involved with the scientific method.
The first link is to a Wikipedia article on Richard Feynman so you can find out who he was and what he accomplished.
If nothing else, I think you will find the material in the videos completely refreshing, especially if you have formerly been involved in $cientology.Richard Feynmanhttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Richard_FeynmanFeynman on Scientific Method.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EYPapE-3FRwFeynman :: Rules of Chesshttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o1dgrvlWML4
