I am a former member of a fundamentalist
church & since leaving have been finding out about the particulars & beliefs of other organizations.
No need to look far on the net to find out about scientology. I like the fact this site is well documented & I find it very interesting.
I have also been interested in the books by the author Whitely Strieber, Communion,transformation,
Majestic & so on. If true Strieber presents astounding revelations about another dimension to our lives literally. One of the things that makes his story so vivid is his integrity as a writer & person & he isn't trying to start his own religion.
In a website that comes up under the title of one of his books on the search engine excite, http://www.fortunecity.com/roswell/daniken/433/demonsindex.htm
it mentions Hubbard briefly & Alastair Crowley.
It was admitedly an odd site.
I am interested though does Scientology make any associations with this phenomena? Even though Striebers books on the subject were written after Hubbards time does he mention or scientology today claim any thing that alludes to this subject? It occurred to me perhaps through Hubbard & Crowley's books however flawed & corrupted(unlike Strieber)they may claim some understanding on the subject? & though the books are based on fundamental misrepresentations & falsehoods they are quite complex with some depth & affect some people profoundly.
Did they glean some understanding involving this
phenomena & basically get it wrong & screw up? Also screwing up lots of others in the process & become corrupted & in Hubbards case nearly go mad.
Sounds farfetched I know but I am interested.
I appreciate any replies.
