The content of this publication is reproduced herein as copies strictly for nonprofit educational purposes in order to satisfy public interest in further scholarship, research, critical review and investigative journalism. Although the following collection of research material may seem extensive at first glance, DMCA Reviewers should keep in mind that the Church of Scientology goes to great lengths to boast the following statistics in regards to the teachings and related works of L. Ron Hubbard.
    



The top NY Times Best-selling authors write a best-selling book every 1-3 years—writing an average of 30 books tops in a lifetime. [1] In his lifetime, L. Ron Hubbard wrote 554 fiction and nonfiction books, an average of 1 published book every month for 56 years—the equivalent of the lifetime work of 32 New York Times best-selling authors. [1] L. Ron Hubbard has been awarded four Guinness World Records in the last three years including Most Published Works by a Single Author: 1,084 in 2006. [2] Over 4.2 million pages of Hubbard's writings have been translated in the last 11 years alone compared to a total of 359,459 in the prior 50 years. [2] Between the mid-1960s and early 1980s, and following from a greater geopolitical study of what most plagues this world, L. Ron Hubbard authored an extraordinary series of essays on “cultural inadequacies” of the late twentieth century. [3] In testament to the first stands the full body of his life’s work, including some 12,000 writings and 3,000 taperecorded lectures of Dianetics and Scientology. [4]

Therefore, despite the extended length of reproduced sourced material in this compilation of excerpted documentation, when compared to the overall whole body of L. Ron Hubbard’s Scientology works – this entire series of publications is merely a small sampling that is well within the constraints of “fair use” as defined under Title 17 of the United States Code.

Project Purpose

The meaning of the word “religion” is entirely subjective, and strictly personalized, opinion of what it means to any given individual. Therefore, no one can define the answer to “Is Scientology a Religion?” for another person. However, people of various faiths still seek those answers in regards to the Scientology system of beliefs. Therefore, this research catalog documentation archive aims to expose the truth about a wide range of L. Ron Hubbard derived scriptures using a contemporary approach to world religion studies [1]. This series of publications and related works is intended to serve as a public domain archive of source materials for further research to aid those who seek out such answers for themselves. The fair usage content included spans examples of the following documentation:

    

Propaganda the Church of Scientology promotes to the outside world for encouraging a wider acceptance of their beliefs and practices, while reinforcing their legitimacy as a New Religious Movement (NRM). Propaganda the Church of Scientology promotes internally to their own members that slanders many other major religions and contradicts their claims of being compatible with other belief systems. Additional documentation outlining the actual teachings and alternative medicine practices of the Church of Scientology that underscores why their system of beliefs is so controversial. Academic analysis summaries from proponent, critical, and comparative sources that reflect a comprehensive look at all sides of many disputes surrounding the common of questions of Scientology’s religiosity. Related media coverage that further examines the finer points of the “applied religious philosophy” that the Church of Scientology claims is at the heart of its campaign to “clear the planet.”

With the release and ongoing maintenance of this documentation archive of educational booklets and related works, Project Chanology Anonymous activists from www.whyweprotest.net aims to provide a virtual library of reference materials for all those seeking answers to the entirely subjective questions that arise when evaluating the nature of Scientology as a religion.

Series Abstract

The Scientology Religiosity? Series of research catalogs and related works is a collection of materials for supporting further research in the vein of comparative religion studies on the subject of Scientology and the teachings of L. Ron Hubbard. These fair use publications focus on illustrating Scientology beliefs in relation to other religions, traditional tenets of faith, ancient mythology, and the teachings of other major religious leaders. The materials included in each volume represent a small sampling of excerpts from the written works by L. Ron Hubbard in the form of books, essays, and lecture transcripts. Other materials range from official scriptures of the Church of Scientology in the form of policies and organizational publications, in addition to promotional materials. This documentation represents the core Scientology teachings and doctrines that is often referred to as “technology.” Another central aspect of this series of publications focuses on an assortment of privately distributed Advance! Magazine feature articles from a long running Spiritual History of Man series that L. Ron Hubbard personally mandated [1]. These articles and related Hubbard essays offer a unique view into how the Scientology dogma is promoted internally to adherents that are on an advanced stage of the “The Bridge to Total Freedom” (aka “The Bridge”), and pursuing the Operating Thetan (“OT”) levels of study.

Series Section v4.01 Volume Summary
This volume of the Scientology Religiosity? Series of research publications has been compiled as the first intermediate module for the middle segment in a larger body of materials. These volumes are assembled for educational purposes with an aim for supporting further study on basic points of comparison between Scientology principles of faith and the common beliefs of other major religions. The enclosed subject matter explores the teachings of L. Ron Hubbard and the Church of Scientology relevant to their core spiritual beliefs surrounding their interpretation of one’s soul (or “Thetan”), and the incorporation of residual problems from the past lives of a Thetan into issues that need handled with their religious practices in one’s current life. Additionally, this volume also introduces other unusual philosophical quirks that Scientologist come to believe as they progress beyond the basic indoctrination mechanisms on “The Bridge to Total Freedom” that is seen as their path to salvation. Featured highlights include the following aspects of this New Religious Movement (NRM) system of beliefs:

 Identification of doctrine specifically geared towards spirituality-based beliefs, and the policies mandating that all of Hubbard’s written works be treated as doctrine even though they cover a vast expanse of subject matter that lies beyond the realm of spirituality.

 The logic behind applying alternative mental health therapy practices to the
pursuit of enlightenment, and how this influences Scientology’s worldview in towards society in general as well as other major religions.

 The basis for the moral standards adapted into this system of beliefs in regards to the universal struggle of good versus evil, and Scientology’s idealistic perception of their responsibility for saving the planet from misconceptions perpetuated by other religions.

 The common justification of this system of beliefs being representative of a
“modern” religion rather than an alternative form of psychotherapy, and how that mindset is adapted into claiming their counseling practices are an “Applied Religious Philosophy” due to treatment being geared towards empowering one’s soul to become god-like.

Series Section v4.01
Subsections v4.01.001 through v4.01.004 outline the Scientology approach to spirituality and defines how this system of beliefs varies from other religions. The zenith of extreme differences between Scientology and other beliefs is further illustrated in subsection v4.01.005, which includes doctrinal definitions for the major milestones on the path to Scientology enlightenment. These milestone statuses are known as the states of “Clear” and “OT” (or “Operating Thetan”). Subsection v4.01.006 provides an additional chapter of excerpts from the Church of Scientology scriptures with a continuation of some of L. Ron Hubbard’s controversial quotes as previously published in Volumes I and II. This segment of quotations focuses mainly on aspects of how their spiritual beliefs are “applied” to the world around them. Additional quotation segments in this same vein of documentation will also be featured in the future releases of Volumes V and VI. To provide a further understanding of the basis for Scientology’s claim that their “Applied Philosophy” is practical approach to life, which makes their beliefs different from any other faith-based system, subsections v4.01.007 through 008 explore Hubbard’s theory of the “Eight Dynamics” as outlined in subsection 001. It is this theory that seemingly forms the basis of the practical application of Scientology auditing techniques for enhancing one’s spirituality on compartmentalized levels of existence. Scientologists perceive the use of this theory for interpreting all the aspects of one’s life is seemingly in stark contrast to a typical nonpractitioner perspective of seeing Scientology auditing practices as serving as a means of alternative counseling that apparently changes the way a person thinks. A contrast that legitimately exists in the public perception of Scientology from the behavior changes new practitioners exhibit, despite the evidence of the great lengths Hubbard went to in justifying the religiosity in developing his faithbased form of mental health therapies. Subsections v4.01.009 through v4.01.012 addresses the mechanics of Scientology auditing techniques that are used to achieve their defined form of enlightenment via achievement statuses in the states of “Clear” and “OT” as defined in subsection 005. This journey of enlightenment via achievement levels on “The Bridge” is addressed further from the aspect of bettering one’s soul via Scientology training and processing in subsections v4.01.013 though v4.01.017.

Series Section v4.01
The concluding subsections starting with v4.01.018 serves as culmination of the basic Scientology doctrines that address spirituality gains made for the sake of bettering one’s human abilities in the current lifetime by taking into account the impact past lives has on a Thetan. Moreover, this betterment of humanity is viewed as coming with certain levels of responsibilities as demonstrated in subsections v4.01.021 through v4.01.023. The subject of “responsibility” was selected for closing out this volume because it raises several conundrums in light of the abuses within the highest level of the Church of Scientology Sea Org religious order as revealed by the media in recent times. This in turn raises ample room for questioning whether Scientology’s “Applied Religious Philosophy” is worthy of being deemed as a religion. Thus subsection v4.01.024 presents the classic cult apologist approach to justifying that claim despite the readily apparent nuances and contradictions documented within their scriptures. Proper citations for all the source materials reprinted within this publication for educational purposes are indexed in the back matter under the “List of Scientology Illustrations” subsection. Additional recommended references for each major subsection of the v7.01 materials is also included under the “Further Reading” subsection for a progressive continuation of studies on the topics covered herein.

Subsection v4.01.004 What makes the Scientology belief system unique Differences Between Scientology and Other Philosophies (1960 L. Ron Hubbard Lecture) Have You Lived Before This Life? (1960 L. Ron Hubbard Publication) Exterior and OT (2005 L. Ron Hubbard Essay)

DIFFERENCES BETWEEN SCIENTOLOGY & OTHER PHILOSOPHIES by L. RON HUBBARD
Lecture given on 23 June 1960, London Congress On Dissemination & Help . Re-released separately in 2010 as apart of the Classic Lecture Series. TAPE NO. 600623 5 2 M I N U T E S

[…] The basic-first basic difference is that Scientology started out on the assumption that nothing was known. And if you read a book, Dianetics: Evolution of a Science, it talks a great deal about "everybody knows." There were certain things that everybody knew. Everybody agreed that these things were true, and having agreed to these things, they were thereafter not inspected. The studies of Scientology started out on the basis that there weren't any. Now, it's a singular triumph to discover an humbleness-a singular triumph to discover an humbleness of finding out that you're stupid. It's a tremendous blow to your pride and a tremendous gain to your intellect. Starting out on that basis we had launched something directly and immediately opposed to every other supposition that I know anything about that had been made in former studies of life and man. These things started out on some grasped positiveness, some tremendous positiveness, and took off from there. Now, if you don't believe this, why, it's all right; go and look. You take most of the fields of the spirit. They have been clouded by the fact that there were supposed to be, or supposed to have been, a great many people around who knew all about it and who knew a great deal more than you would ever know. Even in the field of philosophy, to say nothing of the field of religion, we had one that went like this: "There are unknowables." Transcendentalism. "There are unknowables. No matter how smart you get and no matter how much you learn, you're still going to be stupid." We didn't start from there. The other hidden assumption, you see, of course, that it was possible to know. And that's a very interesting assumption because it says, "If you are ever to be the effect of anything or if anything is ever to be the effect of you, it is rather obvious that some communication will occur." You grant that? Must be a communication from you to it or it to you before you can ever be any of the-ever be an effect of it. Well, that gets us down simply to the very interesting fundamental of simply discovering those things which we are going to affect and those things which are going to affect us. It can't possibly exist that there will ever be unknowables that would ever have any effect on anything as far as you were concerned. So if there are unknowables, then they could be totally neglected until such time as we'd looked up and found a bullet going through our head or something of this sort and said, "One more knowable coming up."

Now, there's the fundamental difference. It's a viewpoint of "hope to know something," not the fatalism of "There are a great many things which we will never know." That's a fundamental switch. It starts from the basis of "We don't necessarily know anything but we can inspect." And oddly enough you'll find this cycle-of-action repeated, this cycle of knowledge is repeated every time a person is processed. It's quite amazing. From tremendous wisdom, enormous pomposity of knowingness, he all of a sudden finds out he doesn't know a ruddy, blasted thing. And by that we make our first progress. Beginning to know that one doesn't know is not a lesson in humbleness but one in wisdom. […] Now, compare that with this idea: If it is true for you, it's true. And if it's not true for you, it still isn't true. Not even if Ron told you is it true. It's just not true, that's all. And any time somebody comes along and says, "Faith. You must have faith," he's not talking Scientology. He might be talking something else but he's not talking Scientology. Now, let's see how a person would make his gains in this field. He would make his gains in this field by being shown a way. But how far could we show him this way? We'd have to show him the way in such a way as it didn't invalidate him nor bring him to a preconclusion. Now, believe me that's delicate ground right there. And that is so difficult of solution that all of auditor training developed over a period of thirteen years, has been devoted to grooving that in so that the auditing occurred with the maximal freedom of the preclear to find the truth, the minimal walking off into confusions, the maximum gain in terms of truth, the minimum education. Now, that is a very interesting tightrope. Now, this thing "the way" or "the road to knowingness" is sown with many pitfalls and very possibly the intentions of many earlier endeavors might have been in this sphere. But in showing "the way," they also began to map the pavement and put up the milestones. And after a while, when they became modern enough they did not neglect advertising posters on both sides of the right of way saying all sorts of things, such as, "If you drop enough pennies in the poor box your soul will ..." […] This kind of an approach where Ferdinand of Isabella fame could have all manner of people tortured, maimed, ruined, burned, just because they thought there was a different syllable in certain lines or should be another syllable someplace else. These are the pitfalls of showing the way. After a while, why, everybody becomes certain this it the way, and then just make sure that all the signposts tell the person what he is to conclude while traveling on that way. And when you've got that, you've got a road down and a road to slavery. Freedom of truth is something man has not been noted for. He's not been noted for this at all. He's been noted quite the contrary for a slavery of something somebody said was true. And that is a very, very vastly different thing than freedom of truths. I don't care what you conclude is true. I haven't the slightest wish about it one way or the other. And just within the last year we took an interesting turn technologically, a fascinating turn technologically. We started out-it was a double reverse. We started out-and in Dianetics, which has to do with mental anatomy-you will find in Dianetics that it says man is basically good. Unfortunately, it also has something to say about the fact that everything is wrong with him is what's been done to him. Now, all these years went by and we began to get the idea that he must be a sort of an evil pup if he was doing what he was doing, until we found something new-but it was something which was just run into-and that was the only harm he can ever come to in the long run is that harm he has done to himself. And we can prove this, within a limited scope of the word proof It's proved quite conclusively that these profiles which you have been shown, which you know about, improve fastest if we take the viewpoint that all that is wrong with the person is what he has done to others that he didn't like to do. And that's all that happens, apparently, to a person. I said apparently, but this is simply a truth that we ran into along the line of technology, but it is not true unless it worked for you. We're perfectly prepared for you to be entirely different and to be a victim. No, evidently-evidently the only person that ever did anything to anybody at the widest outside look was the person himself. And why did he do it? He apparently did it to restrain himself, or he apparently did it and then recognized that he had to restrain himself, and his recognition of the fact

that he could apparently do evil was so overwhelming to him that he decided to withhold his actions more and more and more and more. Why? Well. apparently the fantastic reason behind this is that he's basically good. Well, you have to kind of reach this conclusion. Providing you look at it from all sides and become totally familiar with it and see how people respond and see how they don't respond, you find out that man is basically good. But I'm not even trying to sell you that conclusion. I'm just telling you that within the experience of processing and technology it's rather turned out that way. And for me, I'm quite happy about it, quite cheerful about the whole thing. Now comes the fantastic thing of: if he is basically good, how can he commit so much evil? Well, apparently he never commits any evil, but he becomes someone else and his ideas of that person are that that person is capable of evil actions and that he has to restrain these actions; and he is so busy restraining these evil actions that he begins to do evil actions because he can't restrain them. And we discover that when a person is no longer himself, he is no longer responsible for his actions. Now, how does he cease to be himself, for heaven's sakes? Well, that's another study. How does he cease to be himself? Well, he pulls himself all out of shape trying to restrain himself from being himself if he thinks of himself as evil. All these are very interesting conclusions but they are not conclusions unless they work for you. I'm just giving you this idea-that's the type of thing. Now, man is apparently worried about a great many things. He's worried about good and evil. The question I've just talked to you about is a philosophic question of some length and magnitude. Is a man good or is a man evil? Now I say to you, "Well, man is basically good." And you look at me and you say, "Well, that's fine. I'm glad Ron thinks so." I hope you say this, and not "Aha! Ron says man is basically good. Therefore they are basically good and that's all the thinking I have to do on the subject"-you lazy bones. No, this is a philosophic question: "Is man good or evil? What is good? What is evil? What is the nature of life? What is death?" These are all questions that come up along the line and have been coming up along ever since man, on this planet certainly, had any language with which to express himself. He has been worried about these things. He's thought about these things. "Is there a God? If so what's his name? What's prayer? Do I pray or not? Can I defend myself? Am I just a little chip on this vast sea of things or is there anything I can do about it? Am I a prisoner? Do I have to lay aside my own honor in order to comply with civilized existence?" You know, all these kinds of philosophic questions. And the odd part of it is, is they are not the questions of the classroom. They are not the questions of the classroom at all. The ditch digger, the little kid walking down the street-these are tremendous, unresolved problems to them which endlessly confuse their days. You'd be amazed. […] Worry, worry, worry, worry, worry, worry, worry. And all of these worries come from uncertainty, tremendous uncertainties of one character or another, which simply is the fellow has never made up his mind as to what is truth. He has all of these problems rocketing around inside and he can't make truth out of any of them and his life becomes a chaos. And what questions are they? Well, it's those questions basically that Scientology best tackles. And I myself have never given you a list of what those questions are, but they are questions of this nature: "Is man basically good? Is he evil? Are the intentions of the world, and so forth, toward me this way and that way? Is there such a thing as God? Did my mother and father really love me? What is love?" You know? Goes on and on and on in one long, confusing, squirrel cage. And it generally winds up as logic, thinking, philosophy, working the road through all this morass, somehow or another succeeding in spite of it all. Tremendous amounts of study. "Maybe if I go and be a ditch digger for four years or if I sit on a pinnacle in the middle of the desert and eat dried soup or something of the sort for fourteen months without ever speaking to anyone, maybe all these things will resolve," you see, and extraordinary solutions of one character or another coming along. Well, what does Scientology do about these things? Do you realize that Scientology is a distant cousin-it so now establishes itself as a distant cousin; it isn't a full-blooded thetan relation. The earliest traces of this sort of thing is probably Dharma.

[…] Factually, Dharma, basically and originally, was the name of a monk who is now known as a legendary monk who lived approximately ten thousand years ago and who was interested in telling people that there was a way out of it all. That came down along the line. The next big point we hear about it is a fellow by the name of Gautama Siddhartha, over in northern India, sat under a Bodhi tree, hence Buddhism. That's right. That's correct. And this fellow found out he wasn't in his ruddy head. That's what he found out. And he made up a lot of good reasons, and he was a very, very intelligent fellow indeed. And he explained this various ways. That's come on forward more or less till now. But look, many of the things which we know in Scientology are known in Taoism, they are known in Buddhism; but there are eight billion more things known in Taoism and Buddhism that we don't know. Different, huh? Now, there is a tremendous number of things in Scientology that appear in a tremendous number of places. Naturally, because very, very clever intelligent men have been thinking about life for a very, very long time, and if they didn't dig up some answers, that was pretty stupid of them. Don't you think so? It was inevitable that they dug up some answers, inevitable. The only thing that's new about Scientology is it says "Why don't . you dig up some?" And, of course, that's not totally new either. Zen Buddhism is supposed to dig up answers. There's a lot of these ramifications to this sort of thing. If it's true for you, however, it's true. And if it isn't true for you, it's certainly not true. it isn't, either. And Buddhism has fallen a bit by the wayside by saying, "There is such a thing as exteriorization. A man can be three feet back of his head." Or they don't quite put it in those terms. They say, factually, that a person is himself and is not a body, only they have as a goal, ending the cycle of bodies, ending the cycle of going from life to life and having a new body in each life and going on this tremendous life cycle and just going on and on and having more bodies and more bodies. And that's what they are upset about. Ah, but Buddhists don't even know how to exteriorize somebody so that that other person can find out. They say, "Sit down and meditate for a while." And I've known a lot of people that sat down and meditated for an awful long time and I've asked them, I've said, "Have you flown out of your head yet?" So, they started taking it all on faith. They got lazy. Maybe back in the days of Gautama Siddhartha, maybe he said things like this. Maybe he did, maybe he didn't; we never know, duplication being so poor on the track. But they started taking it on faith. Oh, wow! All this does is start some more "everybody knows." Don't you see? It's just, "It's true because the Dalai Lama says so." Oh, no. Oh, no. He's not living in your head. Look, you'll see he's not there. And therefore, you can get prone to all sorts of errors. And after you've got everybody totally believing that they can take it all on faith and be comfortable because there's enough truth in what you are saying to make them very, very comfortable about it, then is the time to start putting up billboards on the side of the "Tao" or "the Way" or something like that. Advertised facts. The slight political advantage of getting everybody to believe, also, this little tiny point is also true. Well, they never find it out because they have no tradition of finding out things for themselves or recognizing truth when they see it. And when they have no tradition left of that, they become slaves. And when all lines of reason have become a tradition of accepting the faith or accepting something somebody else said, unexpected [uninspected], as truth, you have to do what we have done here in the last couple of decades, and that is simply decide you don't know a ruddy, blasted thing and start all over again. And of course, when you do, you start out on a road of the freedom of truth. If you have no political pitch, if you have no vested interest, if what is being codified is being codified totally and only for the sake of true or not true, you become freed of these "for everybody knows"; these "everybody knowses" drop out. And there is no slightest advantage in getting somebody to believe some great fundamental truth totally uninspected. The only thing you can do, basically, is say, "In this vast sea of knowledge, this ocean which is full of raindrops, each one of which very like the next, each raindrop is a datum,

and there's an ocean full of these data. Actually, there's a way to sort these data out for yourself, and that way is by familiarization and inspection." And the only way that we have in Scientology is a sort-it-out thing called auditing which permits the individual to inspect certain basic important data which will lead him to certain conclusions, if he cares to have any conclusions, and if he makes any solid, irrevocable conclusions, will also lead them out of him. All that processing is, is an invitation to inspect. That with which you become familiar you can know. Now, that is one of the basic and early assumptions of Scientology. That with which you become familiar you can know. That with which you do not become familiar is pretty hard to know. I think you can agree with that; that's a very easy one. Familiarity. Inspection of something without fear will certainly bring you to any existing truths about that thing. Right? Inspection of something without fear. So all auditing does is release the person's ability to inspect, and when he can inspect without fear, he can know the truth of things. And the odd part of it is that once you know the truth of something it can't bite. Now, that's an added bonus. […] Life has certain basic fundamentals. Any truth about life, any of these fundamentals surrender anything they have in the way of answers if a person totally inspects something. Now, this is not inspection by electronic computer. This is just inspection, straight away. We had an old one, "Look, don't think. Look, don't think." […] No, by increasing one's familiarity with any zone of existence-not by any-through any particular system; just by increasing one's familiarity, all manner of things can occur. Miracle healing occurs just exactly on that button-just increase one's observation of existence. If miracle healing is going to occur, it's going to occur on that particular basis line. It's going to recognize what's there, not what is not there. This is a fantastic thing, and it's in the experience of any Scientologist. Touch Assist. He burns his finger, and he goes "Yipe! Yipe! Yipe! Yipe! Well, I better process that." Now, sometimes he'll stand there and run through the engram that has been created by burning his finger, which is a familiarity with the incident. But oddly enough, he can also get there quite remarkably simply by inspecting his finger. The Touch Assist is easily the best for this. Just look at these fingers through this finger, see. Just keep touching this new wound here, you know, and each time getting the idea of looking at this finger through this finger, you know. Just look at the finger, look at the finger, look at the finger. You find-you don't have to say, "Look through this finger," because soonafter a while you find out you are looking through that finger. And just look at this finger, look at this finger. Just get the idea of looking at his finger, looking at his finger, looking at his finger. And factually speaking, blisters and burns and all kinds of things just go right on down. Well, usually they only take it down to a point where it doesn't bother them. But occasionally some person that just doesn't stop very easily (stop button unrattled or something), will keep doing it, you know. And they keep doing it and doing it even after it's apparently cured up within any normal expectancy, and of course the burn and the scar disappears. Takes a long time, but that is the end of that particular line. Now, the danger is simply this: If he kept it up another fourteen or twenty hours, would the finger disappear? It's quite interesting. Somebody the other day was saying, "You know, I used to have three warts on my fingers and then I took to sitting here just looking at a finger through ... And I haven't got any warts anymore." Well, a cure for warts. What do you know? But it's not just a cure for warts. The real warts in life have to do with tremendous facts that everybody knows and that they must adhere to utterly and

must never get rid of and must be so respectful of that they never dare inspect any part of them that might unsettle them at all. People go through life and their confusion is a sea of uninspected data, uninspected facts. The only thing that you can do for anybody in the final analysis is get him to inspect his own life and his own environment. And if he inspects his own life and his own environment in any kind of an orderly way and-you know, not running away every time-he looks over here and then runs away and then looks over here, and two years later gets courage enough to look over here again. No, you can help him out by every time he runs away you say, "Look." And the guy says, "Well, I don't know, I-it's pretty dangerous, pretty dangerous." There's tremendous, almost unlimited methods of self-deception, almost unlimited methods of delusion. Man is probably richest in the numbers of ways he can make suckers out of his fellow man with lies. Hard words, but when a man here doesn't know what's the truth, then what he says to the man over here certainly doesn't relate as any truth. In the final analysis all you can get anybody to do is inspect himself, his environment, life, and find out what's true for him. And those things that are true for him, they'll be pretty true. And you'll find out that if he does it all the way, then we all agree on what's true. But the second we all agree on what's true and that these things are truths, then we can get very lazy and we never have to think of it again, and Ron can all write it down in a book, and the next generation that comes along only has to memorize this so they will know what the truth is. Well, that I don't think any of us want to have happen. That's Scientology as I see it from my own particular viewpoint. It doesn't say that the numbers of truths in life are limited or that they are very few. It doesn't say anything except that if we look we can learn. And all it says, in the final analysis, is that as far as we've gone we found out that it paid off very, very well. By looking, we learn. When we finally get through looking, I'm afraid if we look hard enough there won't be any universe left here. But I haven't noticed any matter disappearing lately just because you were looking at it. But you let me know when it starts to cave in. Will you? […] Now, I will say that there's some liability in looking because you often get your head half beat off. So the second lesson you have to learn is, having looked, get up nerve enough to look again. And having looked again, why, get up nerve enough to look again. And because this is sometimes a very lengthy process, why, it's kind of best to have an auditor. He is looking at us, making sure that we keep looking, not flinching. Wherever we have gone, whatever we have learned has simply been along this process line. What is valuable that we have is valuable because it shows how to look without totally getting your head knocked off. […] And the total fruits of these things is simply made possible by the fact that we kept at it. We were more right than we were wrong; we're still here. We are taking off to a higher level, a new height, organizationally and internationally, so forth, than we have ever attained before. Big things are happening. They are great big, very complicated things. And in the midst of all these complicated things it's a good thing to look around and realize that we are actually, basically simple people, even sometimes idiotic people. And remember that the subject itself is basically very, very simple and it's within grasp of everybody. And somebody that says he doesn't understand Scientology has made a terrible confession. All he has said is that he can't inspect, because that's all Scientology asks you to do. And if Scientology says, "Why don't you inspect something?" and the person says, "I don't understand Scientology," that person did what? He failed his first gradient. Well, that's all it is and that's all it means.

Related to Scientology’s Perception of Other Religious Beliefs
Concerning Scientology vs. Other Major Religions
From Saint Hill Special Briefings Course lecture, 16 August 1966 RELEASES AND CLEARS [extended passage] “Now don’t be amazed that you’re having trouble carrying the word. Don’t be amazed at all because the fate of missionaries and so forth carrying the word that there is aman is a spiritual being and that sort of thing, has been rather grim. But notice that the missionary was many vias departed from the truth. Notice this. Notice that he had some bank connected with his action, very thoroughly. It wasn’t very clean truth. It’s not a condemnation of Christianity. Anybody Clear knows what I am talking about. They went around-they went around telling people they had to do this and do that and the other thing and they were using bank words. Now these chaps didn’t have a sufficiently pure version of it to do more than take over the society. That is about the limitation of it. They have civilized it to a very, very marked extent. They’ve done a terrific job of it and so on. But to bring a society up that is no more cultured than this one-and as far as man’s treatment of man is concerned, this culture is about as high as a cat fight. It is a scientific barbarism, I assure you. Now the reason they didn’t get any further than that is they were a little bit too far from the truth. There were too many vias, you see? There was the via of Buddhism to Socrates, to Christianity, to organized Christianity, to the various arguments of Christianity to-you see? And they were weak to that degree. … And when you see education being skimped and frowned upon and so forth then you know what type of a government you’re dealing with. It’s a government which has not yet reached the state where it has heard of Dharma. Or it’s suspicious, having maybe heard of it, it’s a suspicious that the phenomenon will occur and people will become freer. They don’t want anything to do with this. They don’t want anything to do with the philosophy and they are suppressive to the philosophy of Dharma, that people should become wise and therefore can become free. Now, you’re just cutting in too high. Now you’re talking, in the main here in the West, to a Christian people who have heard of the soul but unfortunately it is an owned commodity that one should not play with. And when they speak of “their soul” they are not speaking of themselves. And therefore there’s a bit of counter-philosophy to the situation. But these are the points you have to solve. They are stunned at the idea that somebody could exteriorize, so they are really not up to Buddha. They have gone past Dharma but have not arrived at Buddha, and it is to those people that you are teaching Scientology.

L. Ron Hubbard & Church of Scientology General Quotes on Other Major Religions and Systems of Belief

So you have to be careful not to go in over their heads.” — L. Ron Hubbard

Regarding God Being Everywhere
From The Scientology 8-8008, Phoenix, Arizona, 1952 Also included under St. Hill Special Briefing Course Level A “Rather than existing on theory in common with other principles of Scientology this manifestation of created space can be experienced by an individual, who discovers that space can be made coincidentally with any other space. Space then, is not an arbitrary and absolute but it is creatable or uncreatable by a viewpoint. Any being is a viewpoint, he is as much a being as he is able to assume viewpoints. Thus in any society we would inevitably have a statement of the infinity of viewpoint such as “God is everywhere.” Beings instinctively assign the most beingness to that thing which would be everywhere and when Man desires to assign an unlimited power or command to anything he says that it is everywhere.” — L. Ron Hubbard

Regarding Faith & Religion
From Further Introduction to Dianetics. Oakland Public Lecture Series, 1950. Also included in Research and Discovery Series: A Running Record of Research into the Mind and Life Vol. 4, 1980. “In spite of the fact that in the beginning I started out trying to isolate life force, I still find myself balked. Perhaps we will be able to sense, measure or experience this thing called life force, to put it on a meter, or perhaps pump it into a corpse. Who knows? But it seems to me, the further I go into the problem however, that religion has a lot to say in its favor. I don’t know where memory is stored in the mind, I don’t know where the personality is stored, I don’t know how these things come about; but I do know the various errors and their mechanics which cause the human mind to think incorrectly, aberratedly.” — L. Ron Hubbard From HCO POLICY LETTER OF 21 January 1965R VITAL DATA ON PROMOTION – THE FUNDAMENTALS OF PROMOTION (ORGANIZATION section) [extended passage] “It is all very well to idealize poverty and associate wisdom with begging bowls, or virtue with low estate. However, those who have done this (Buddhists, Christians, Communists and other fanatics) have dead ended or are dead ending. That route doesn’t get the job done so it isn’t a workable route. The hard fact of this civilization is, given enough money or control you can usually buy or demand your way out of any game you don’t want to play. Thus you can keep on playing the game you do want to play. It is always a matter of amusement to me to find out some attacker is after money. For that’s an easy one.” — L. Ron Hubbard

L. Ron Hubbard & Church of Scientology General Quotes on Other Major Religions and Systems of Belief

From “Assessment, Memories, Ridges - Demo - Acceptance Level Processing” in 1st ACC Lecture #36 on 27 October 1953. [audio clip] “Now the MEST universe is all very well, but it's all illusion. One doesn't want an illusion, so he can't have an illusion, and when he was very young, why, Christ was alright, he was very friendly as a matter of fact, and so on, But that's mostly – people, you know, they have to believe in that sort of thing. And they did once, but it requires nothing but faith, and of course they can't have any faith anymore, and they did have hopes on that once in a while, but actually religion doesn't lead anybody anyplace, in the final analysis because you never get your wish anyway, so of course one can't survive on the basis of spirits and religion and so forth.” — L. Ron Hubbard From Ability, The Magazine of DIANETICS and SCIENTOLOGY. Issue 48 1957, June 3 [extended passage] “A Scientologist is one who controls persons, environments and situations. Scientology is used on Life and its forms and products. The chief uses of Scientology are in the fields of Education, Organization, Mental Disability, Social Order and Religion. Scientology is the first to give scientific meaning to these. A Scientologist is considered a professional if he uses Scientology in any of these fields and has been thoroughly trained in Scientology. Scientology means Knowing in the fullest sense of the word. A Scientologist operates within the boundaries of the Auditor’s Code and the Code of a Scientologist. A Scientologist is a first cousin to the Buddhist, a distant relative to the Taoist, a feudal enemy to the enslaving priest and a bitter foe of the German, Viennese and Russian defamers of Man. The religion of the Scientologist is freedom for all things spiritual on all dynamics which means adequate discipline and Knowledge to keep that freedom guaranteed. We are the people who are ending the cycle of homo sapiens and starting the cycle of a good earth. There are no barriers on our path except those we make ourselves. Our ability belongs to all worlds everywhere.” — L. Ron Hubbard

L. Ron Hubbard & Church of Scientology General Quotes on Other Major Religions and Systems of Belief

Regarding Being in Control of Your Immortality
From The Handbook for Preclears, Los Angeles, CA 1989 Also included under St. Hill Special Briefing Course Level A “You as a personal identity are the composite of all your experience PLUS an initial decision TO BE and occasional decisions NOT TO BE. YOU do not die as an identity or a personality or an individual. YOU and the MEST body “separate” and the MEST body gets a funeral. YOU then link into the protoplasm line with your genetic blueprint—the plans of construction of a new body in the orthodox manner of conception, birth and growth. You depend upon some inherent abilities of protoplasm but you, as experience and identity, monitor that protoplasm’s ability and modify it. There is a family line, then, from generation to generation, modified by YOU as experience. YOU are not necessarily part of that family line. Every child, for instance, distrusts his identity as a family member. And there are numerous cases of record wherein a child, up to the age of three or five, recalled entirely who he had been—but forgot it under the pummeling of his “imagination” by adults. Perhaps you take off after some lifetime and go to heaven. Nobody can argue successfully about that. But YOU are the source of yourself with regard to various generations. Now this, by effort processing, becomes so irrefutable, so clear and unmistakable that if it can be disproven, then the laws of heat and fission can be disproven as well. We are on solid ground about immortality and all the rest of it for the first time in history.” — L. Ron Hubbard

Related to the Interpretative Aspects of Scientology’s Religious Philosophy
On a Modern Religion Redefining the Meaning of One’s Soul
From Presence of an Auditor Lecture [audio] Fifth American Advanced Clinical Course, 1954 “You get any race, any civilization or culture which has gone below the level of ‘man can have a soul’... You know? Races and cultures go up to a certain level, and up to that level an individual has permission to have a soul or be a soul. You know, this is not outside of our computations. And then he crosses that little sharp border line and he goes over into the never-never land of an individual can't have and is not a soul. The second we do that an individual can't have nothing. An individual will always have something. […] In other words, the second we depart from a nothingness complex, nothingness ceases to be part of an individual's scheme of life. He couldn't think, for instance, of taking a vacation where he would simply go and sit down under a tree and do nothing for two weeks. And yet that's a very sensible kind of a vacation. Individual says he wants a rest. Well, all right, let him go and sit under a tree for two weeks, see? Quiet, that's fine. All right. No, no. No, you'll find that isn't the case in an electronic society or a mass society that has more or less

abandoned the idea that there's any nothingness anywhere. And it's abandoned the idea of the spirit and the beingness and so forth. I'm not talking religiously. It's very silly that man went ... The way it decays is they finally say, ‘The soul is something else. You're you and the soul is something else.’ That's modern religion. You know, that's the same as a preclear saying - by the way, let me interject this one because it's something that you ought to know very well - it's the same as the preclear saying, ‘Well, yeah, I'm outside my head, I know that. I'm over there.’ See? He's over there. What are you dealing with? Immediately you should, without giving much outward manifestation, hold onto your chair, keep your hair from flying into the air and quickly go into ‘where we start.’ Is it lying down and mimicking where he lies or just where do we find bottom for this case, see? ‘I'm over there.’ All right. That's Christianity. They're always saying ‘my soul’ you know. ‘You've got to save your soul.’ Well, that's the same as ‘I'm over there.’ ” — L. Ron Hubbard

On Science & Religion Being Realigned with Dianetics
From “GUIDE TO SPECIAL COURSE IN HUMAN EVALUATION” 1951 Lecture, Tape 510625. “A long time ago, science and religion did a wild severance. Somebody tried to change a few doctrines down in Rome and—some scientist—and they burned him. And scientists got mad at religion and religion decided that science was very wrong for being mad and they did a little bit of a parting of the company. It's very strange to, now, without wanting to—since I haven't any great personal interest in this field—all of a sudden watching the inevitable realignment.” — L. Ron Hubbard

On Proving Immortality with Dianetics and the Effect on Other Religions
From Science of Survival chapter 18 The Basic Laws of Theta, Los Angeles, CA 1989 Also included under St. Hill Special Briefing Course Level A “For example, even at this time in Dianetics one can prove, as science demands proof in terms of sensing, measuring, and experiencing, the immortality or near immortality of the individual. Oddly enough, or perhaps not so oddly, hardly any re-interpretation of scripture is necessary’, save that the boldness and scope of past considerations about the human soul, God and the Devil, and Heaven and Hell are stabilized and made contactable. The importance and value of organism death is enormously reduced, should dianetic investigations and conclusions continue to be corollary to or concordant with man’s great religions. Religions, fighting uphill against the oppressions of Godless ideologies, may

gain new strength and meaning. The level of behavior of the individual, whether good or evil, would appear to have new significance.” — L. Ron Hubbard

Regarding the Survival of Man and Striving to be God-like
From DIANETICS: The Modern Science of Mental Health Hermitage House, 1950 Also included under St. Hill Special Briefing Course Level A “Sanity depends upon rationality. Here is optimum rationality and therefore optimum sanity. And here also are all the things Man likes to think Man should be like or, for that matter, what he has represented his better gods to be like. This is the clear. This is sanity. This is happiness. This is survival. Where is the error?” — L. Ron Hubbard

Concerning Religion as a Substitute for Controlling People
From The Creation of Human Ability, Los Angeles, CA 2007 “Society, thirsting for more control of more people, substitutes religion for the spirit, the body for the soul, an identity for the individual and science and data for truth. In this direction lies insanity, increasing slavery, less knowingness, greater scarcity and less society. Scientology has opened the gates to a better world. It is not a psychotherapy. It is a body of knowledge which, when properly used, gives freedom and truth to the individual.” — L. Ron Hubbard

On the Overt Effort to Harm Worshippers
From The Creation of Human Ability chapter 5, Los Angeles, CA 2007 “As a practical example, most preclears consider the childhood home an orientation-point and themselves a symbol of that orientation-point. Where a preclear has lost too many orientation-points successively he begins to consider himself a symbol of a symbol. The concept in some religions of God being everywhere and every place at the same time is a direct and overt effort to loose the worshipper by taking from him a finite position for his orientation-point.” — L. Ron Hubbard

Regarding Prayers to God and the Reactive Mind

L. Ron Hubbard & Church of Scientology General Quotes on Other Major Religions and Systems of Belief

Also included under St. Hill Special Briefing Course Level A “… Oh, my poor, poor baby. Oh, my baby! I wonder if I hurt my poor, poor baby. Oh, I hope my baby is still alive! Please God let him live. Please God let me keep my baby. Please!” Only the God to which she prayed was the Reactive Mind, which makes one of its idiot computations on the basis of everything is equal to everything. A holder, a prayer for life, a thoroughly bruised baby’s spine, Mama’s sympathy, a pig grunt, a prayer to God, all these things are equal to the reactive mind and so we have a fine case of arthritis, particularly since our patient sought “survival” by marrying a girl with a voice just like Mama’s sounded when he was in the womb. Ask him to get rid of his arthritis? The reactive mind says “NO!” Arthritis is a baby is a pig grunt is a prayer to God is wife’s sympathy is being poor is Mama’s voice and all these things are desirable. He’s kept himself poor and he’s kept his arthritis and he married a wife who would make a harlot blush and this is pro-survival: wonderful stuff, survival, when the reactive mind computes it!” — L. Ron Hubbard

Related to the Inherent Worldview in Scientology’s Religious Philosophy
Regarding Belief in God & Other Religions Playing a Role in War
From DIANETICS: The Modern Science of Mental Health Hermitage House, 1950 “There are no international concerns which cannot be resolved by peaceable means, not in the terms of supra-national government, but in the terms of reason. Jockeying with indefinable ideologies, playing with mass ignorance, non-existent entities like nightmares march the world in the form of the Gods of Ism. No self-interest can be so great as to demand the slaughter of Mankind. He who would demand it, he who would not by every rational means avert it, is insane. There is no justification for war.” — L. Ron Hubbard From Saint Hill Special Briefings Course lecture, 27 August 1963 RIGHTNESS AND WRONGNESS [extended passage] “You very often go into – you go into a church of one of these older faiths, and you’ll find the minister up there haranguing and screaming, you know, about “the evils of the demon rum,” or something like that, to the congregation. “Stay ye away from that pub, bud,” you know? Yelling, you know? And he goes back to his study, you see, and he takes this little nip of medicine to fortify himself, you see, after the exertions of his lecture.

L. Ron Hubbard & Church of Scientology General Quotes on Other Major Religions and Systems of Belief

And you’ll see somebody turning against religion because of the amount of hypocrisy in it. You know, the guy is saying, “Well….” Well, the Roman Catholic church probably lost its grip on the world which it’s trying to reassert now by killing off the Buddhist. [Hubbard saying this as himself, not as a hypothetical conversation] I beg your pardon, the better interpretation is that it’s only those in charge in Vietnam who are members of the Catholic church. That actually isn’t everybody. There are some Presbyterians there, too, in the American troops, and so forth. I have opened up a chapter here which is leaving you blinking just a little bit. I’m sure somebody is going to make the assumption sooner or later, though, that if the only government in the world being maintained in force actively by US arms is a Catholic government, that that government’s turning against another religion has something to do with something here that we haven’t quite put the finger on. And we add to the fact that that same government is attacking the only other organization on the face of Earth who doesn’t believe in death forever, we begin to ask interesting questions. You probably hadn’t linked the attacks on the Buddhist up with US arms supporting the government of Vietnam, nor the attacks of the FDA against the FCDC in Washington, DC. Yeah, everybody else is all right. Criminals, they’re fine, and so forth. Everybody’s all right. But it’s just these two organizations on the face of Earth plus one other, the Theosophist, who talk about reincarnation and who talk about coming back to life again and who talk about these other things. And it’s an oddity that just in the last two or three years all three of these organizations have been furiously attacked by the US government. Sort of an interesting puzzle, isn’t it? Well, don’t worry about it. We’ll get there before they do. This is just an interjected thing. Now, they’re evidently asserting a rightness about death. I know it’s mean of me, it’s cabalist, it’s rabble-rousing for me to infer that the majesty of government is actually being used to further some foul, religious end in some way and to cause everybody to be dead. But I’m very interested in the fact that the Church of England, of all organizations, right down here in the form of a vicar (who, I think, has had to move since). This bird-I’m looking at a face or two here who were present in this-was being very censorious about our giving death lessons to young children. Story went around the world. What do you think this guy does every time he stands up there in the pulpit? It gives one to wonder, you know? He’s talking about going to heaven and all this sort of thing. He’s giving death lessons to little kids. Diana came home from school one day crying. She was going to a local school up here. She wanted to know if all this stuff about poor Christ was true. And I gave her the hot dope, andwell, as a matter of fact, I did. I was very reasonable about the whole thing. I said, “Native populaces have their religious beliefs, and wherever you are, you must remain tolerant of the current beliefs,” and so forth, and she took this in.

L. Ron Hubbard & Church of Scientology General Quotes on Other Major Religions and Systems of Belief

But it’s interesting that this bird down here is asserting how wrong it is, don’t you see, to give children death lessons while he himself is giving them death lessons. Only our death lessons are straight dope-this is what happens with regard to death-but his are a darn lie. Somehow or another, this makes him right. How does this make him right? Well, you can just go round in circles trying to figure out what’s the rightness and wrongness of this, you see? Why should a powerful state attack a truthful philosophy, you see? Why, you know, why some of the calmest and most decent people in Asia-the Buddhists-why are these people being attacked and shot down and their pagodas burned and that sort of things Why? What … ? And you can go round and round and you can get real confused and you can get real upset. Well, there’s always one stable datum. There’s always one stable datum: Somehow, whatever they’re doing-no matter how mad the action may appear-is undertaken by them to be right.” — L. Ron Hubbard From The Creation of Human Ability, Los Angeles, CA 2007 “It will soon be borne home to the preclear that he has been trying to play games with the absence of opponents, that he has hung on to most of the disasters that have happened to him in his life because they meant the loss of opponents. Here we find the child, who has been raised alone, dreaming up illusory opponents. And later on we discover him mocking-up demons. Any time we walk into an insane asylum and discover somebody involved with a battle with demons (or who has a demon, or who has a guardian angel, or who has anyone of these mythical assistants or opponents), we are looking at somebody who found opponents so scarce that he had to mock them up. And having mocked them up, was unable to unmock them-for no new opponent came along. The reason war mobilizes everyone into action and speeds up production in a country is because a tangible opponent has been introduced and people will accept tangible opponents above illusory opponents. Man's activity in fighting himself, thetans' activities in fighting themselves, all stem from this effort to play games in the absence of opponents.” — L. Ron Hubbard

On Philosophy, Religion, Science and Searching for Answers
From “AXIOMS AND FUNDAMENTALS ABOUT DATA” Lecture tape 501111, on 11 November 1950

[Page 10 of 16]

L. Ron Hubbard & Church of Scientology General Quotes on Other Major Religions and Systems of Belief

“Philosophy has always had this same hard time. There is nothing so absurd in the real world as those things which are found in the books of philosophy. There is also nothing as sensible in the world as what is found in the books of philosophy. There is nothing in the world so workable as what can be found in the field of science. There is also nothing in the world so unworkable as what can be found in the field of science. These statements can be made on almost any field and battleground of learning. If one is seeking knowledge, he should never despise a source of knowledge, but he may often practice this principle: “Certain bodies of knowledge have not, in the past, led to a solution of the problem in which I am interested. I shall therefore, willy-nilly, move off the path of my reasoning these bodies of knowledge which have led nowhere.” That is a highly arbitrary action, actually, but it clears the field. People say, “The phlogiston theory of heat never led anyplace, so we will just move anything related to that off the field, and therefore we will be able to think more clearly about this.” Let’s go up into a wider sphere. “Has religion produced anything that I can use in my field of search?” If his answer is no, then we can let him move all of religion off his field of search and go on searching. He will find himself suddenly confronted with many more fields than that of religion, and his field of search will be clarified at that moment. Or, supposing he said, “I have never found my answer in science, and I am searching. Let me remove from the field and course of my thought and search the whole body of science.” That is the principle of compartmentation, which is very useful. You move off your field of vision large bodies of knowledge which have not, heretofore, contributed to the solution of your problem. Men do that all the time.” — L. Ron Hubbard

Concerning the Problem with Religions on the Second Dynamic
From “ALL POSSIBLE ABERRATIONS” Lecture, Tape 510604 on 4 June 1951 “Now, on the seventh dynamic, how many times have you heard religions try to cut down the second dynamic? The second dynamic is the most certain immortality which we have. We are going along from generation to generation rapidly and that is an immortality. It might have been that somebody figured out that the way you could really sell immortality was to make a man take off and go to heaven as a soul at the end of his life, but he couldn’t guarantee it very well and he couldn’t show any facts in the matter, so the second dynamic became a foe. And you will find that large numbers of religions suppress the second dynamic— not just the Christian religion; many others suppress it much more horribly. In Rome, for instance, emasculation was practiced as a religion. This really made sure that the soul went to heaven! There is, then, all of this inhibition on the second dynamic: the inhibition of affinity, and the inhibition of agreement— reality. What is the reality of this? Does the soul go to heaven, or does one continue to” his immortality through his genetic line? We have a turbulence there; nobody has quite decided this, so there is a confusion between those

two points.” — L. Ron Hubbard

On Faith vs. Atheism
From Taking Inventory SOP Step One. Public and Professional Course Lecture, Los Angeles, 1950. Also included in Research and Discovery Series: A Running Record of Research into the Mind and Life Vol. 3, 1980. “Concerning Dianetics and religion, you can knock the stuffings out of atheism with Dianetics. Someone can be ranting and raving on the subject of the church and its dogmas, and then you run out the prenatal engram where Mother is saying, ‘God is punishing me. That’s why I am pregnant. God is punishing me.’ After that the person says, ‘Church? Interesting social group.’ ” — L. Ron Hubbard From Introducing Dianetics. Public Lecture Given at Shrine Auditorium Los Angeles, 1950. Also included in Research and Discovery Series: A Running Record of Research into the Mind and Life Vol. 3, 1980. “Atheism is rooted in engrams, and people who have had such engrams run out of them are no longer atheists. It does not mean that they suddenly have an abiding faith in religion. But a man who has no faith, even if it is only faith in himself, has no purpose. The ministers and priests who have been working with Dianetics have been espousing it, and I have had no single letter from any church organization which condemned Dianetics. There is no conflict. After all, it says right in one of the tenets of Dianetics that a man seeks his potential immortality as a spirit. Dianetics does not take into consideration such a thing as a belief. A science can’t believe in something. For instance, physics never believed in Einstein, and as a result there is no conflict between the two. You will find, however, occasionally an aberrated person will feel assaulted by Dianetics and he will become very protective of his own engrams and will find some excuse to take it up. But so far there is nothing between Dianetics and religion and I hope it so continues.” — L. Ron Hubbard

Regarding Blasphemy and Church Zealots
From DIANETICS: The Modern Science of Mental Health Hermitage House, 1950 Also included under St. Hill Special Briefing Course Level A “Any dynamic can be blocked, the personal dynamic, the sex dynamic, the group dynamic or the Mankind dynamic. Each one has been the target at some time of one cult or another seeking to cure all Man’s ills and save him. Dianetics is not interested in saving Man, but it

can do much to prevent him from being “saved.” As an organized body of scientific knowledge dianetics can draw only the conclusion which it observes in the laboratory. It can be observed that the Church is entirely correct in doing all in its power to prevent blasphemy. Blasphemy can very often be uttered during the “unconsciousness” of a person who has been struck. This would enter sacred names and curses into engrams which, reacting within the individual, give him an unnatural terror and compulsion or repulsion toward God. It is not the religion which is at fault, it is the blaspheming of the religion. Such blasphemy makes the insane zealot and the murderous atheist, both of whom the Church would very gladly do without.” — L. Ron Hubbard

On Attacking Christians During Institutional Conflicts
From Ability Magazine, March 1955 reprinted in OEC Vol 7 (1991); THE SCIENTOLOGIST A MANUAL ON THE DISSEMINATION OF MATERIAL: 1. GENERAL PUBLIC TO THE GENERAL PUBLIC “Should anyone challenge you for having suddenly secured a relief in a hospital or an institution from some dire malady which balked the efforts of the professional men in charge of it, and should you ever be "called upon the carpet" for having "interfered" with the progress of a case, you should be extremely dismayed, and act it, to find yourself in the presence of barbarians who do not believe in the power of prayer, in the will of God, or the promises of Jesus Christ. And you should point out that whereas the body was in their keeping, they did not at any time care to take purview of the human soul. And if anything has occurred because the soul, in your province, then reacted upon the body, you believe that they are unwilling to admit the will of God in their treatment of human beings, and if this is the case you now, while you are being addressed by such people, discover yourself to be in a strange place where men pretending to be Christians doubt God, the Son of God and the power of prayer. Your entire address to such people in such a situation, publicly or privately, should be entirely overt, accusative and not at any time apologetic. And you should immediately make it your business to place this matter before the proper authorities, that people are in charge of an institution here, are not Christians and do not believe in God, and you should inform your accusers that you are going to do so.” — L. Ron Hubbard

L. Ron Hubbard & Church of Scientology General Quotes on Other Major Religions and Systems of Belief

“The preclear is actually keeping in suspension moments in time which, according to everybody else's agreement, have passed. And his insistence on keeping these moments of time bring about a condition where he has facsimiles in suspension or restimulation in his immediate vicinity. These facsimiles contain unconsciousness, they contain pain, they contain about fifty-five perceptions. They can make him hot. They can make him cold, and when he doesn't even know they're sitting there and yet when he's hugging them to him, he can present some interesting aspects because these things also contain word patterns. They contain actual word patterns. A person who has what we call sonic and visio can get one of these things into restimulation that talks. Well, because it has a command value over him, he is then subject to hidden commands, articulate word commands. And when these are hidden he doesn't know where they come from and when - and we get into this in a moment - when they are supposed to have, according to his judgment, senior survival value, when they have a superior survival value to his own, he obeys them. [...] Now, if he could identify these sources of commands he would of course be much happier about hidden commands in general. Just knowing that these pictures can exist and they can talk to him in this fashion, they can make him feel in these ways, is in itself something of a relief to an individual. But let's find out what advantage has been taken of this mechanical fact. This is a mechanical fact; it's no more than that. What advantage has been taken of it? People say, "What you should do is listen to God and spirits." The second you put a person's attention out into nowhere, the second you ask him to start searching around into nowhere in the nether netherlands to find something that is giving him a series of hidden commands, that he can never touch, that he can do nothing about, you have run him into his engram bank. Religion, then, plays a rather important part in all aberration. The bulk of the people you'll find in asylums, by the way, are gibbering about religion. That's because they've tried to communicate with something out there which was nothing, and it just wiped them out, that's all. And the more they try to communicate with that nothing, of course, the less response they get because there's nothing there talking to them. But there is somewhere that something is talking to them-their own engram bank. And where is this located? Well, it's located in the thetan's own space. It's his space as a different space - coincident with or not; it doesn't matter - but it's a different space than the physical universe's space. So here we have the physical universe's space out here doing one thing and we have the space immediately around the thetan - although he has physical universe space around him too, he also has his own universe sitting there full of engrams.” — L. Ron Hubbard

On Fulfilling the Goals of All Religions
From The Creation of Human Ability, Los Angeles, CA 2007 “Scientology has accomplished the goal of religion expressed in all Man's written history: the freeing of the soul by wisdom. It is a far more intellectual religion than that known to the West as late as 1950. If we, without therapy, simply taught our truths, we would bring civilization to a barbaric West.” — L.

Concerning Solving the God Problem
From Professional Auditor’s Bulletin No. 8 VIEWPOINT PROCESSING, August 1953 “One runs Viewpoint Processing on all dynamics. In particular the 5th, 6th, 7th and 8th dynamics must not be neglected. In sanitariums the briefest observation demonstrates that the 8th dynamic is most prominently the aberrative dynamic, for here we have the idea that God inhabits all space, thus making it impossible for the preclear to have any space of his own. The preclear must either have no space or must be himself God. To solve the God problem, one simply rigs up large spaces in abundance “full of God” and more large spaces “full of preclear” until the preclear can have large spaces of both. It is interesting that in preclears whose families were connected with the Church, the problem of space is most acute. This process is done by mock-ups of a very large order and of no particular distinctness. Although any computation can be run, the following computations will prove effective: Cause, Effect, enjoy things, hate things, look, don’t look, motion, no motion, sound, sight, feeling, work, pain, no-sound, no-sight, no-feeling, no-work, no pain, babies, no-babies, spirits, no-spirits, Christ, no-Christ, God, no-God.” — L.

L. Ron Hubbard & Church of Scientology General Quotes on Other Major Religions and Systems of Belief

“The need for a person to be able to morally cleanse himself by confession of sins has long been recognized in religion. The Buddhist monk 2,500 years ago was permitted to confess and seek expiation for “acts of censure”. The penalty for failure to confess was loss of the rights and privileges of a monk. This was enforcement of the natural law that he who commits actions against the codes or mores of the group separates himself from that group. The Bible, in the Books of James and John, calls for the confession of sins. Early Christian handling of confession was largely concerned with disciplinary aspects. The sinner had to wear sackcloth, make his bed in ashes, and fast. This went on for a time proportionate to the gravity of the offence, sometimes for years. Certain sins were previously considered too serious for forgiveness and therefore not open to confession, but a gradual leniency developed as in the case of Cahxtus, Bishop of Rome 217-222, who decided to admit adulterers to exomologesis (Greek for public confession). In the 4th Century at Rome and Constantinople we hear of “penitentiaries”priests appointed to act for the Bishop in hearing the confession of sins and deciding whether public discipline was necessary. Due to some misuse of public confession, individual private confession became more prominent in the 5th Century. … Throughout the centuries two points of question have arisen which led to some unpopularity of confession. One was the possible misuse of information disclosed in public confession, hence the development of private confession before an authorized person whose code of conduct prevented misuse. The other was the infliction of disciplinary action as atonement for the sins confessed. But the latter goes beyond the realm of personal morals and ethics into justice. Confession itself, and the need for some form of confession has not been in question. With Integrity Processing Scientology follows in the tradition of religion. This processing enables the individual to confess to overts without duress. It is done with a qualified Auditor bound by the Auditor’s Code. Disciplinary action forms no part of the processing.” — L. Ron Hubbard

Subsection v4.01.007 Hubbard’s theory on the “Eight Dynamics” being the basic urges toward survival Information on Dianetics & Scientology: What are the dynamics? Scientology Handbook: The Dynamics of Existence - individual, his dynamics & problem solving The Science of Survival – Dynamics (1989 L. Ron Hubbard Publication)

Authentic Information & Answers to Questions About Scientology

What are the dynamics?

Every individual has an urge and determination to survive. Pursuit of survival is the common denominator of all life. For an individual, this drive for survival embraces eight distinct divisions known in Scientology as dynamics. The dynamics are best conceived as concentric circles with (1) self in the middle and extending to (2) family and sex, (3) groups, (4) mankind, (5) all life forms, (6) the physical universe, (7) spirituality and (8) infinity or the Supreme Being. The first dynamic, self, is the effort to survive as an individual, to be an individual and to fully express one’s individuality. The second dynamic is creativity. Creativity is making things for the future and the second dynamic includes any creativity. The second dynamic contains the family unit and the rearing of children as well as anything that can be categorized as a family activity. It incidentally includes sex as a mechanism to compel future survival. The third dynamic is the urge to survive as a member of a group. A company, a political party, a church or a social organization are all examples of the third dynamic. The fourth dynamic is the urge for survival of man as a species. All of the races of man together constitute the fourth dynamic. The fifth dynamic is the urge to survive for all life forms—animal or vegetable and anything directly and intimately motivated by life. The sixth dynamic is the urge for survival of the physical universe and reflects the drive of the individual to enhance the survival of all matter, energy, space and time—the component parts of the physical universe.

The seventh dynamic is the urge toward existence as a spiritual being. The eighth dynamic is the urge toward existence as infinity. This is also identified as the Supreme Being. Thus, this dynamic can be called the infinity, or God, dynamic. As noted earlier, the dynamics can be conceived as a series of concentric circles in which the first dynamic would be the center and each new dynamic would be successively a circle outside the preceding circle. The individual, then, expands from the first into the other dynamics as his responsibility increases. For example, a baby at birth is not perceptive beyond the first dynamic, but as he grows and his interests expand he can be seen to embrace other dynamics, beginning with his family (second dynamic) with an awareness and appreciation of mother and father, to his school (third dynamic) and associating with other children, etc. An individual’s ability is increased by improving his survival across the dynamics. As he becomes more capable and more aware, he becomes more able to control and influence all of his dynamics. The goal of Scientology is to help an individual survive to the greatest level across all of his dynamics from the first and ultimately to the eighth.

PRESENCE OF AN AUDITOR
5th American Advanced Clinical Course lecture given on 2 April 1954

Okay. This is April 2nd, 1954. Hour's lecture to Professional Unit 5. I want to talk to you something about the presence of an auditor. About the beingness of being an auditor. Most of the time I talk to you about techniques; talk to you about all kinds of manifestations, phenomena, how to produce results and so forth. Well, let's get very, very fundamental and let's go into how you could be an auditor. Now, of course it's taken for granted that an auditor - if he were really a good auditor - would know all the processes and he would know all the definitions, he'd know all the fundamentals and he'd have them at his fingertips so quickly that anything the preclear did or any phenomena which turned up, he would be able to tabulate and account for, quickly. But we still would not have covered his own beingness as an auditor. Now, in the first place, an auditor is something that's not quite human. As a matter of fact an auditor had better not be human. The better auditor, of course, is somebody who is capable of exteriorization, stable exteriorization and able to maintain it and able, actually, to patch up anything that might go wrong as far as his own case is concerned. He ought to be up to that level. That isn't up to Operating Thetan but it's certainly Theta Clear. Now, that's stabilized exterior no bang back in and so forth. He should be that, simply to resolve the most fundamental problem there is with regard to livingness. Scientology has a great many processes which handle a great many conflicts. But there is one conflict that is inescapable and unavoidable wherever you have Homo sapiens and that conflict is this: The body is very insistent upon somethingness. It has tremendous

insistence upon somethingness. It has to have insistence on somethingness because if it didn't have it'd starve to death. It depends upon exterior attention in order to live. It is then an insistence upon somethingness. […] If given complete reign to its ambition, any effort to communicate would be an effort which would contain form - form, substance, mass. In other words, any communication the body itself does all by itself must therefore and thereby contain mass. In other words, the ambition of a somethingness is to have something. If it's going to communicate, it must have itself duplicated. And a body is something, so therefore something must be at the receiptpoint of any communication emanated from the body. So you could say the ambition of the body, then, is to fill up the universe. And make a very simple statement of the thing. Okay, that's very well. The ambition of the body is to have something to fill up something, so forth. Well, what about the thetan? Let's supposing he gets into an obsessed state where he's very compulsive. Well, his beingness is nothingness. And so to have a complete and an accurate, perfect communication there must be nothingness in terms of form and mass. Any communication from a thetan, to be perfect, would have to contain no form, no mass. You see, a thetan doesn't have form or mass, and so an optimum communication from a thetan is, of course, something that contains no form and no mass. In other words, he wouldn't even have space. He wouldn't even want space. In other words, he would want nothing. And he's trying to reduce the universe to a nothingness so he can communicate with it. That's obsessed, you understand? A body never gets above the level of being obsessed, the thetan easily does. Now, an obsessed thetan compulsively acting, not understanding what he's doing - long gone sort of thing; he doesn't quite know he's there, he doesn't quite know what he's doing - yet has this obsession to make nothingness out of everything. That would be nothingness out of all space. Well, how would he have to do this - make nothingness out of all space? He'd have to collapse it, wouldn't he? So he puts everything under collapse and restraint in order for it to get down to nothing. Well, what do you think the emotion is of a thetan in a body trying to communicate? You know, that's pretty mixed up isn't it? Here you have somebody in a body and he has the ambition of making everything into nothingness - you know, obsessively; he doesn't know what he's doing. And here you have the body trying to make everything into somethingness. And these two ambitions are crossed and conflicted in such a way that he doesn't know really whether he's trying to make something or nothing. The composite, then, called Homo sapiens is never completely aware of whether he's trying to make something in existence or nothing. He isn't completely articulate on whether or not the future time track should have nothing on it or something on it. He never has quite made up his mind. There is the primary decisional break in any lifetime. It's the break, you see decisional. Theindividual can make up his mind as long as he's predominately thetan. See? He is a thetan, he knows this, so forth. He could make up his mind. But as he drifts out of

2.4.54

complete knowingness of what he is and what he's trying to do he gets obsessively into trying to make things duplicate him, which would be still all right - he's just trying to make everything into nothing. It would be a decisional thing. His decision would be "Well, what are we going to do about that General Sherman tank? Make nothing out of it, of course." Wouldn't matter whether it was on his side or some other side. His compulsive, obsessive response would be, in relationship to the General Sherman tank, "Let's make nothing out of it." Wouldn't matter whether it was on the German side or his own side or something, just the answer would be to make nothing out of it. If you want to look at the condition of war materiel and so forth which is normally in the hands of guys in fairly good shape and so forth, make nothing out of it, whether it belongs to their own... themselves or the enemy. All right, wreck it, reduce it, squash it. Now, he goes down on this "make nothing out of it, make nothing out of it" until he hits the body obsession line and he disappears out of view and were left in possession of the body's ambition which is to make something out of it, to make something out of it. And the end product of this, of course, is to collect all the junk in the world and to make massive masses of mass wherever possible and so forth. It's just something, something, fill up all space. Well, another product of this, if you please, is to have all kinds of ridges sitting around. That's one way to fill up all space. That's a covert way of filling up all space. That's to put up enough ridges, enough electronic masses, enough compulsive, obsessive mock-ups to really fill up all space. You know, doesn't matter if it's hallucinatory, that's okay; we're going to fill up all space. Because we have a somethingness, we're trying to communicate, therefore everything must be a somethingness. Okay. We pop somebody three feet back of his head. He immediately recognizes something - if he has any certainty being exteriorized. He recognizes there's the body which he is using as a communication relay point. He'll recognize that he is here and he is at liberty to make something or nothing at will. Well, there's a tremendous resurgence the moment he really regains a big certainty on being exteriorized and is able to do it stably. Soon as he achieves that point, then he can selectively make something or nothing. In other words, just because he's communicating and he is nothing is no reason everything he communicates to has to be nothing. He doesn't have that obsessive duplication at that point. And he doesn't pay very much attention to the desires and wishes of the body with regard to making the universe into something. But he's as bad off as he continues to pay attention to the body's obsessive desire to make something everywhere and as long as he himself cannot differentiate between whether or not he ought to make something or nothing. The ability to think, to make decisions, so forth, to the thetan who is very high up - he would not consider it necessary for a duplicate of himself to appear simply because he was communicating with something. In other words, he could talk to a wall and still have a wall there. He could talk to a mountain and still have a mountain there. He could talk to a body and still have a body there. The body wouldn't have to disappear to nothing. He could also at the same time face the fact that he could talk straight into space, which is very close to nothing. It wouldn't disturb him a bit to talk into space, and it wouldn't worry him that space was not duplicating him.

2.4.54

All right. In other words, we would have a clear-cut idea of what we were doing. But as long as somebody is stuck in a body he is up against this "maybe" classification. "Should I make something of it? Should I make nothing of it? What am I doing? What am I doing?" Well, we'll make something of this and then we'll be very selective about it and we'll make somethings of all these things we consider good and we'll make nothings of all these things we consider bad. And of course, all the things we're trying to make nothing out of may have an entirely different idea and so we'll get into a big conflict and an enormous confusion. This is the confusion of an auditor who has not been exteriorized to a large degree. He doesn't quite know whether he should make nothing out of the preclear or something out of the preclear. It apparently is all right to him the preclear has massive ridges and hallucinations and everything else, permanent mock-ups, things like that sitting all over the place. An auditor who is interiorized and who doesn't recognize the fundamentals with which he's dealing of course could sit there and, "Well, that's all right. The fellow's got the whole universe full of energy and that's his universe and that's his universe. That's all right. We'll just let him sit there," and so on. He wouldn't recognize this as a rather undesirable condition. And if he were, you might say, relatively high-toned for Homo sapiens, the idea of theta clearing somebody would be fine because he could really make nothing out of the guy. See? That'd be all right. But "Let's make nothing out of the body, too" would follow in immediately afterwards. So this individual would be perfectly happy to grind out engrams, engrams, providing he had some security in the fact that it was sooner or later going to reduce the body down to a dust spot. And particularly let's make nothing out of the hopes, dreams, ambitions, protests, ideas and goals of the preclear. If he was just obsessively on this line, why, he'd just be making nothing out of the preclear. The preclear says, "I just had a horrible headache." And this auditor who is making obsessive nothingnesses - he would say "Mmm mmhmm m-hmm. Now, let's process your foot some more," and so forth. And the preclear would say, "I have a horrible headache." "Mmm. Now let's get the other foot." Let's not make any capital out of any communication. Let's just make the guy into nothing as fast as possible. Now, let's get the reverse of this. Preclear is sitting there, the auditor knows what he has to run on this preclear. This pre clear is obviously having a very hard time with direction and so forth. And the preclear should have run on him next-to-last-list of Self Analysis, just as a little test on the case and then some Opening Procedure, something on that order, something mild. And the preclear's sitting there and the auditor's sitting there, and the auditor says, Well..." He's got good ambitions. You know, his heart's in the right place. He knows he's going to do well by this preclear if possible. And he starts to say, "Well, now, let's get something... The preclear says, "You know, I've been having trouble with my elbow lately."

2.4.54

"Oh?" the auditor says. "Hmmm. Well. Well, let's see, can you get a duplicate of that?" And here we go. Where's this session going to wind up? In the dust bin. The guy might as well have never sat down. Anything the preclear says, the auditor makes more of Anything the preclear comes up with the auditor makes more of. He makes something of everything the preclear communicates. He gets deeper and deeper in the somethingnesses too, and he'll get more and more and more and more significant about the case. More and more significances will turn up because he has to make something out of the communication. So, boy, will he make things significant. This in essence was analysis. Every time somebody came up with the fact that they had a slight blink on their eye, why, the fellow said, "Well, were you ever worried about flirtation?" You know, you got to have significances. No, the guy's got some dust in his eye. "Well now, this is a flirtatious manifestation which probably stems from the Oedipus complex." Now, let's get significant. Now, let's make more of it and more of it. And finally if we make enough more of it, why, we've really got the guy nailed down in a body. What happens to a person undergoing analysis of the old school? He actually just gets sicker and sicker and more and more wrong with him, because more is being made out of everything he advances. And what he originally advances was that there was something wrong. So we have validated the wrongness of the case and have clung to that and have made something out of it up to a point where the fellow thinks he's walking on glass twenty-four hours of the day. He just can't... So much is wrong with him. He wonders... A few weeks deep in analysis an individual begins to wonder how could he possibly have lived? It's an impossibility, obviously. Because he had been found to have all these repressions, these complexes; "make something out of it," in other words. Well, that's because the analyst is there, he is pinned down and he is being 100 percent a body. You get any race, any civilization or culture which has gone below the level of "man can have a soul"... You know? Races and cultures go up to a certain level, and up to that level an individual has permission to have a soul or be a soul. You know, this is not outside of our computations. And then he crosses that little sharp border line and he goes over into the never-never land of an individual can't have and is not a soul. The second we do that an individual can't have nothing. An individual will always have something. […] In other words, the second we depart from a nothingness complex, nothingness ceases to be part of an individual's scheme of life. He couldn't think, for instance, of taking a vacation where he would simply go and sit down under a tree and do nothing for two weeks. And yet that's a very sensible kind of a vacation. Individual says he wants a rest. Well, all right, let him go and sit under a tree for two weeks, see? Quiet, that's fine. All right. No, no. No, you'll find that isn't the case in an electronic society or a mass society that has more or less abandoned the idea that there's any nothingness anywhere. And it's abandoned the idea of the spirit and the being-ness and so forth. I'm not talking religiously.

2.4.54

It's very silly that man went ... The way it decays is they finally say, "The soul is something else. You're you and the soul is something else." That's modern religion. You know, that's the same as a preclear saying - by the way, let me inteiject this one because it's something that you ought to know very well - it's the same as the preclear saying, "Well, yeah, I'm outside my head, I know that. I'm over there." See? He's over there. What are you dealing with? Immediately you should, without giving much outward manifestation, hold onto your chair, keep your hair from flying into the air and quickly go into "where we start." Is it lying down and mimicking where he lies or just where do we find bottom for this case, see? "I'm over there." All right. That's Christianity. They're always saying "my soul" you know. "You've got to save your soul." Well, that's the same as "I'm over there." […] What's the difference then between being obsessively a body, obsessively a thetan and being self-determined? Well, a person who is self-determined is somebody who can tolerate or create something or nothing and be happy about it. And a person who's obsessively being something or obsessively being nothing has to - in the case of something - has to obsessively make something, create something, fill up the whole universe, or obsessively make nothing out of everything and he can't be happy about it. The two great differences. Now, you're trying to get your preclear up to where he can be happy. To be happy, he'd certainly have to be able to tolerate or create something or nothing at will. This requires, then, that preclears be worked by people who certainly have an understanding of this. Not necessarily Theta Clear but they've certainly got to have a fair grip on this thing. […] Well, what's essentially then the goal of the auditor? Well, the auditor has to be pretty self-determined because, in effect, a Theta Clear is somebody who can be the nothingness of actual beingness or pretend to be a body or pretend to be a combination of both or he can tolerate something or nothingness at will. […] This is where communication starts working in your favor. Well, don't make it tough for yourself; any tougher than you have to. Don't make it tough for yourself by putting a communication bridge between you and the preclear. All right, these are the elements I cover in the beingness and presence of an auditor. The impulses which you experience can be understood by these statures. Or you can simply get rid of the impulses by auditing which after all is the best way to do it. Okay. (end of lecture)

Excerpts on definitions for key religious philosophy & spirituality terms

DYNAMICS, there could be said to be eight urges (drives, impulses) in life. These we call dynamics. These are motives or motivations. We call them the eight dynamics: 1. The first dynamic —is the urge toward existence as one’s self. Here we have individuality expressed fully. This can be called the self dynamic. 2. The second dynamic—is the urge toward existence as a sexual or bisexual activity. This dynamic actually has two divisions. Second dynamic (a) is the sexual act itself and the second dynamic (b) is the family unit, including the rearing of children. This can be called the sex dynamic. 3. The third dynamic—is the urge toward existence in groups of individuals. Any group or part of an entire class could be considered to be a part of the third dynamic. The school, the society, the town, the nation are each part of the third dynamic, and each one is a third dynamic. This can be called the group dynamic. 4. The fourth dynamic—is the urge toward existence as mankind. Whereas the white race would be considered a third dynamic, all the races would be considered the fourth dynamic. This can be called the mankind dynamic. 5. The fifth dynamic—is the urge toward existence of the animal kingdom. This includes all living things whether vegetable or animal. The fish in the sea, the beasts of the field or of the forest, grass, trees, flowers, or anything directly and intimately motivated by life. This could be called the animal dynamic. 6. The sixth dynamic—is the urge toward existence as the physical universe. The physical universe is composed of matter, energy, space and time. In Scn we take the first letter of each of these words and coin a word, mest. This can be called the universe dynamic. 7. The seventh dynamic—is the urge toward existence as or of spirits. Anything spiritual, with or without identity, would come under the heading of the seventh dynamic. This can be called the spiritual dynamic. 8. The eighth dynamic—is the urge toward existence as infinity. This is also identified as the Supreme Being. It is carefully observed here that the science of Scn does not intrude into the dynamic of the Supreme Being. This is called the eighth dynamic because the symbol of infinity oo stood upright makes the numeral “8.” This can be called the infinity or God dynamic. (FOT, pp. 36-38) LIFE STATIC, 1. a Life static has no mass, no motion, no wave-length, no location in space or time. It has the ability to postulate and to perceive. (PXL, p. 146) 2. the thought, soul, vital part of you which animates this mest, the body. (HCP, p. 75) PSYCHE, 1. a thetan, the spirit, the being himself. (SH Spec 31, 6407C29) 2. soul. (5506C03) 3. a Greek word meaning spirit. (PAB 82)

PSYCHOLOGY, 1. defined this way: psyche-ology; spirit, study of. (AHMC 1, 6012C31) 2. that body of practice devoted to the creation of an effect on living forms. It is not a science since it is not an organized body of knowledge. In actual use it is a dramatization of Axiom 10, wholly reactive. In this wise the word can be used by Scientologists, and this definition can be used legally to prove Scn isn’t psychology. (HCOB 22 Jul 59) 3. the study of the spirit (or mind) that came into the peculiar position of being a study of the spirit which denied the spirit. (PAB 82) 4. a study of the brain and nervous system and its reaction patterns. (ASMC 3, 5506C03) 5. an anglicized word, not today true to its original meaning. Psychology is composited from psyche and ology, and psyche is mind or soul, but leading psychological texts begin very, very carefully by saying that today the word does not refer to the mind or to the soul. To quote one, it “has to be studied by its own history,” since it no longer refers to the soul, or even to the mind. So we don’t know what psychology refers to today. (PXL, p. 2) 6. the study of the human brain and stimulus-response mechanism and its code word was “man to be happy, must adjust to his environment.” In other words—man, to be happy must be a total effect. (2ACC1B, 5311CM17) PSYCHOSIS, 1. the root word “psych” refers only to a being or soul and the “osis” could loosely be defined as “the condition of.” (Cert, Vol. 13, No. 2) 2. psychosis could be technically called an inability to be; so it naturally is an inability to communicate because beingness is a problem in anchor points and that’s a problem in communication. ( Spr Lect 9, 5303CM27) RELIGION, 1. the ritual of worship or regard about spiritual matters. (4 LACC-18, 5510C13) 2. a study of wisdom. (HCO PL 6 Mar 69) 3. the word religion itself can embrace sacred lore, wisdom, knowingness of gods and souls and spirits, and could be called, with very broad use of the word, a philosophy. We could say there is religious philosophy and there is religious practice. (PXL, p. 13) RELIGIOUS PHILOSOPHY, implies study of spiritual manifestations; research on the nature of the spirit and study on the relationship of the spirit to the body; exercises devoted to the rehabilitation of abilities in a spirit. (HCOB 18 Apr 67) RELIGIOUS PRACTICE, implies ritual, faith-in, doctrine based on a catechism and a creed. (HCOB 18 Apr 67) THETA, 1. theta is thought, life force, elan vital, the spirit, the soul, or any other of the numerous definitions it has had for some thousands of years. (SOS, p. 4) 2. the life force, life energy, divine energy, elan vital, or by any other name, the energy peculiar to life which acts upon material in the physical universe and animates it, mobilizes it and changes it. It is susceptible to alteration in character or vibration, at which time it becomes enturbulated theta or entheta. (SOS, Bk. 2, p. 21) 3. theta is thought; an energy of its own universe analogous to energy in the physical universe but only occasionally paralleling electromagnetic-gravitic laws. The three primary components of theta are affinity, reality, and communication. (SOS, Bk. 2, p. 3) 4. reason, serenity, stability, happiness, cheerful emotion, persistence, and the other factors which man ordinarily considers desirable. (SOS, Bk. 2, p. 12) 5. an energy existing separate and distinct from the physical universe. (SOS, p. 4) 6. Greek for thought or

life or the spirit. (Aud 10 UK) 7. not a nothingness. It just happens to be an exterior thing to this universe—so you couldn’t talk about it in this universe’s terms. (PDC 6) THETA BEING, 1. the “I,” it is who the preclear is. (HOM, p. 15) 2. the theta being is close to a perpetual motion picture machine in that it can create energy and impulses. It thinks without facsimiles, it can act without experience, it can know simply by being. (HOM, p. 43) THETA CLEARING, 1. to create a theta clear it is only necessary to bring the being up to a point where it can leave and return upon a mest body. (HOM, p. 59) 2. the emancipation or exteriorization of a soul. (PXL, p. 26) THETAN, 1. the living unit we call, in Scn, a thetan, that being taken from the Greek letter theta, the mathematic symbol used in Scn to indicate the source of life and life itself. (Abil Ma 1) 2. the awareness of awareness unit which has all potentialities but no mass, no wave-length and no location. (HCOB 3 Jul 59) 3. the being who is the individual and who handles and lives in the body. (HCOB 23 Apr 69) 4. (spirit) is described in Scn as having no mass, no wave-length, no energy and no time or location in space except by consideration or postulate. The spirit is not a thing. It is the creator of things. (FOT, p. 55) 5. the personality and beingness which actually is the individual and is aware of being aware and is ordinarily and normally the “person” and who the individual thinks he is. The thetan is immortal and is possessed of capabilities well in excess of those hitherto predicted for man. (Scn 8-8008, p. 9) 6. the name given to the life source. It is the individual, the being, the personality, the knowingness of the human being. (Scn 8-80, p. 46) 7. energy space production unit. (COHA, p. 247) 8. in the final analysis what is this thing called thetan? It is simply you before you mocked yourself up and that is the handiest definition I know of. (5608C——) 9. the person himself—not his body or his name, the physical universe, his mind, or anything else; that which is aware of being aware; the identity which is the individual. The thetan is most familiar to one and all as you. (Aud 25 UK) 10. a static that can consider, and can produce space and energy and objects. (PXL, p . 121 ) GROUP THETA, the theta of a group would be its ideas, ideals, rationale and ethic. This is an actual force. The culture is an accumulated soul which flows over and through a number of individuals and persists after the death of those individuals via other individuals or even other groups.

Ron the Philosopher: The Rediscovery of the Human Soul; The RON Series 1996, L. Ron Hubbard Library http://www.ronthephilosopher.org/phlspher/page28.htm

nce upon a time man knew he had a soul; he would have been shocked if he had been told that someday a book would have to be written to inform him, as a scientific discovery, that he had one. And yet that is what this book is about. It is not about your soul. It is not designed to tell you to be good or bad or a Christian or a Yogi. It is written to tell you the story of the rediscovery of the human soul as a scientific, demonstrable fact. Here at a moment when all religions everywhere face extinction by Communism, psychiatry, psychology, dialectic materialism and other “ologies” and “isms” without number, one might believe this book was an effort to create adequate religious fervor to stem the onslaught of the propaganda pamphlets which, all other things aside, are really the most hideous aspect of these threats to man; however this volume seeks no such thing: it is doubtful if religious control of man was very successful either. In the scorch of friction created by such conflicts one might not realize that the soul is worth investigating and writing about for its own sake, not for the sake of capital to be gained from its establishment or extinction. The tale of the rediscovery of the soul is a considerable adventure entirely from the philosophic and experimental aspect; the adventure has been quite heightened by the amount of preconception and rebuff encountered because of these “isms” and “ologies.”

One would think that ideologies were quite swollen with their fine opinion of themselves to believe that any investigation of the soul would of course be meant as a personal affront to each or all. One conceives the view, after he has been awhile investigating the soul, that amongst all these modern disagreements there existed only one agreement: that the subject of the human soul, for bad or good, was only within the personal sphere of each. Thus, publishing this book will in itself be an adventure for it will discover amongst these “isms” and “ologies,” each one, the conceit that it itself is being attacked, and to “attack” that many oppositions at one fell charge requires in an author either the hide of a rhinoceros, the Citadel of a Christophe, or the legs of an impala. Having none of these but only a certain confidence in the stupidity of all these schools of slavery we locate in ourselves a willingness to accept the risk if not the combat. […]

[…] Living the rather romantic life of an author in New York, Hollywood and the Northwest, going abroad into savage cultures on expeditions to relax, I did little about my search until 1938 when a rather horrible experience took my mind closer to home than was my usual mental circuit. During an operation I died under the anesthetic. Brought back to unwillingly lived life by a fast shot of adrenalin into the heart, I rather frightened my rescuers by sitting up and saying, “I know something if I could just think of it.” In my woods cabin in the Northwest I had quite a little while to think of it. The experience had made me ill enough to keep me in a reading frame of mind and I didn’t get far from a teapot, a blanket and books for some weeks. The alarm caused those “nearest to me” when I sought to regale them with this adventure of death, amused me. That they were not disturbed that I had actually and utterly died medically and coroneresquely, they were dismayed that I would talk about it. Deciding it was not a popular subject I nevertheless looked into the rather extensive library I sported and found that the thing was not unknown in human experience and that a chap named Pelley had even founded a considerable religious study on it. Quite plausibly he went to heaven and came back and lived to tell of it.

The psychiatric texts which I kept around for unpronounceable ailments to put in the mouths of my fictional doctors were as thoroughly alarmed as my near of kin. They called any such experiences by a nice ugly name, “delusion” and made fat paragraphs out of its mental unhealthiness. Only in that matter of unhealthiness could I agree with them. I always have, always will and did then consider that dying was unhealthy. They also seemed to feel that people who died ought to stay dead. Concluding that the littleness they knew about such happenings was best expressed by the voluminous inconclusions they wrote about it, I turned to the classic philosophers and while these had much to say, very little of it was concisely to the point. I realized, after wandering through some five hundred pounds of texts, some things which altered my life quite a bit more than merely dying. During those weeks in the cabin my studies pressed me toward some conclusions. I concluded first that dying had not been very damaging. I concluded second that man, as a learned whole, knew damned little about the subject. For better or worse, I concluded that man had better know not just a little more about dying but a lot more about man. And that shaped my destiny.

I. PROFESSIONAL BACKGROUND
As a sociologist with a specialization in the study of religion, I have been asked to address the question "Is Scientology a religion?" In answering that question, I am not pronouncing on the truth or falsity of Scientology. Rather, I am considering whether Scientology meets the criteria commonly used to define a religion. These criteria are not entirely clear-cut: various writers have offered different definitions. These range all the way from that of W. G. Runciman,[1] who uses the term as synonymous with "ideology," to that of Werner Cohn,[2] who argues that the English word "religion" is so complex and so culture-specific that it is inappropriate to use it with reference to any aspect of non-Western or non-Christianized cultures. Most scholars in this field would nevertheless agree that a religion is a system of beliefs and practices with a supernatural, sacred or transcendent point of reference. Consistent with this starting point, it is possible to identify various characteristics found in most, if not all, recognized religions. The more fully a particular system of beliefs and practices displays these characteristics, the more unequivocally one can regard it as a religion. In identifying the characteristics typically found in religions, I shall make use of the framework put forward by Ninian Smart, one of the leading scholars of the world's religions.[3] As I have used the broad features of this framework in some of my previous writings,[4] it is not being adopted merely for the purposes of the present study. I am not a Scientologist. In formulating my conclusions, I have made a detailed study of Scientology publications, as well as observing activities at the Church of Scientology in Sydney

Is Scientology A Religion? by Alan W. Black and interviewing some of the participants. I am also familiar with various sociological studies of Scientology in other parts of the world. The main Scientology publications I have studied are the following, arranged in order of their dates of first publication: Dianetics: The Modern Science of Mental Health (1950) Dianetics: The Evolution of a Science (1950) Science of Survival (1951) Advanced Procedure and Axioms (1951) Scientology: A History of Man (1952) Scientology 8-80 (1952) Scientology 8-8008 (1952) The Phoenix Lectures (presented 1954, published 1968) The Creation of Human Ability (1955) Scientology: The Fundamentals of Thought (1956) Have You Lived Before This Life? (1960, revised and expanded 1977) Introduction to Scientology Ethics (1968, revised and updated 1989) Scientology 0-8: The Book of Basics (1970) The Background and Ceremonies of the Church of Scientology (1970) Mission into Time (1973, an expanded version of A Test of Whole Track Recall, 1968) The Way to Happiness (1981) Understanding the E-Meter (1982, revised 1988) What is Scientology? (1992) The Scientology Handbook, based on the works of L. Ron Hubbard (1994) The Church of Scientology, 40th Anniversary (1994) All of the above publications have official standing within the Church of Scientology, nearly all being writings of L. Ron Hubbard. Those which are not wholly authored by Hubbard draw heavily on his work. Quotations or references given below are to the latest available edition in English.

III. ANALYZING SCIENTOLOGY
In this section, an analysis of Scientology will be made in relation to the above dimensions. For convenience in exposition, the order in which the dimensions will be considered is not exactly the same as that adopted above.

III.I. THE DOCTRINAL AND PHILOSOPHICAL DIMENSION
The Scientology Handbook (page i) states that: "The essential tenets of Scientology are these: You are an immortal spiritual being. Your experience extends well beyond a single lifetime. And your capabilities are unlimited, even if not presently realized." In these words, Scientology posits the existence of an entity which bears significant similarity to what in various other religions is termed a soul or a spirit. To avoid confusions with previous conceptions of the soul, Scientology terms this entity a thetan, from the Greek letter theta, a symbol for thought or life. The thetan is not a thing, nor is it the mind. It is the creator of things. It is the person himself - the persisting identity which is the individual. The thetan is said to be immortal and to be capable of accomplishing anything, including the creation of mass, energy, space and time (The Scientology Handbook, p. xxiii; Scientology: The Fundamentals of Thought, p. 75). According to the doctrines of Scientology: The usual residence of the thetan is in the skull or near the body. A thetan can be in one of four conditions. The first would be entirely separate from a body or bodies, or even from this universe. The second would be near a body and knowingly controlling the body. The third would be in the body (the skull) and the fourth would be an inverted condition whereby he is compulsively away from the body and cannot approach it. There are degrees of each of these states. The most optimum of these conditions, from the standpoint of man, is the second. (Scientology: The Fundamentals of Thought, pp. 64-65) Scientology maintains that a thetan is subject to deterioration but that he can at any moment return to an entirety of his ability. One of the goals of "processing" or "auditing" in Scientology is to place the individual in the second condition described above, a condition in which, according to Scientology, he is happier and more capable than he would otherwise be (Scientology: The Fundamentals of Thought, p. 65). More will be said about this in a later section. For the present it is sufficient to note that a fundamental element of the doctrines of Scientology is that man consists of three parts: the body; the organized physical substance; the mind - which consists essentially of pictures; and the thetan - the soul or spirit which animates the body and uses the mind as a communication and control system between himself and the physical universe. The thetan is the most senior of these three parts, for "without the thetan there would be no mind or animation of the body, while without a body or a mind there is still animation or life in the thetan" (p. 147; see also Scientology: The Fundamentals of Thought, pp. 63-79, and The Scientology Handbook, p. xxiii). [Page 3 of 12]

Is Scientology A Religion? by Alan W. Black Scientology also identifies eight dynamics - drives or impulses toward existence or survival. Although there are relatively minor variations in the way in which they have been described or labeled in the literature of Scientology (see Scientology 0-8, p. 7; Scientology: The Fundamentals of Thought, pp. 39-42; What is Scientology?, pp. 148-149, 548; The Scientology Handbook, pp. 53-77), these dynamics are briefly as follows: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. The urge toward existence as self. The urge toward existence as a future generation. The urge toward existence as a group such as a school, a town or a nation. The urge toward existence of mankind as a species. The urge toward existence for any and every form of life. The urge toward existence as the physical universe composed of matter, energy, space and time. 7. The urge toward existence as or of spirits. 8. The urge toward existence as infinity or the Supreme Being. In Dianetics, L. Ron Hubbard identified the first four of these dynamics. In Scientology, he added the other four. Given what has been already said about its concept of the spirit (thetan), Scientology's positing of dynamics 7 and 8 is specifically religious in character. Hubbard himself states that "infinity" in the eighth dynamic is also identified as the Supreme Being, and that this dynamic may be termed the "God dynamic" (Scientology: The Fundamentals of Thought, p. 41). He notes that "the science of Scientology does not intrude into the dynamic of the Supreme Being" but that "when the seventh dynamic is reached in its entirety one will only then discover the true eighth dynamic" (Scientology: The Fundamentals of Thought, pp. 41-42). The Creed of the Church of Scientology twice refers to God. After reciting various inalienable rights of all persons, the Creed declares that "no agency less than God has the power to suspend or set aside these rights, overtly or covertly." Later the Creed affirms that the laws of God forbid man to engage in certain specified types of destructive behaviour toward fellow human beings. Nothing else is said in the Creed about the characteristics of God. Another official publication, The Background and Ceremonies of the Church of Scientology, begins with a brief account of various religious philosophies, noting points where Scientology is similar. It states: In Scientology, we believe as we become more and more spiritually aware, that inevitably we will become more aware of God, or the Supreme Being - the prime mover, unmoved. Of necessity any definition of God must be subjective, and we make no attempt to define God as a reality for all people. It would only be possible, theoretically, to be totally aware of God, in all manifestations, when one was spiritually advanced. (The Background and Ceremonies of the Church of Scientology, p. 22) The notion of God as prime mover is echoed elsewhere in that publication, where reference is made to "the Creator or Supreme Being" (p. 10), "the author of the Universe" (p. 27) and "the relationship of man with his Maker" (p. 16).

[Page 4 of 12]

Is Scientology A Religion? by Alan W. Black In summary, then, although Scientology affirms that God, the Supreme Being, exists, it has no dogma as to the form in which God exists. Nevertheless, Scientologists believe that through the process of spiritual advancement available in Scientology every person can reach the eighth, or God, dynamic, and that then the true nature of God will be revealed to each subjectively. Thus, Scientology is in some respects similar to those religions such as Buddhism or Unitarianism which are wary of giving dogmatic definitions or descriptions of God. Scientology does not involve the worship of God in the traditional Western sense. Rather, as in many Eastern religions, Scientologists seek personal spiritual awareness or enlightenment. As will become apparent in the next section, there are also other ways in which Scientology is closer to the major religions of the East than to those of the West. [See also: Corresponding section II.IV]

III.II. THE NARRATIVE OR MYTHIC DIMENSION
A narrative or mythic dimension is evident in L. Ron Hubbard's writings on the origins of the physical universe, composed of matter, energy, space and time (MEST). According to Hubbard, "Life is a game consisting of freedom and restrictions" (Scientology 8-8008, p. 141); in order to have a game, thetans created MEST, which imposed some restrictions upon them. Thetans then became progressively entangled in the MEST they had created, losing awareness of their unlimited abilities. The objective of Scientology is to enable the thetan to rediscover these unlimited abilities. This involves the erasure of the contents of what is termed the "reactive mind" - that part of the mind which records what is happening when one is wholly or partly unconscious but suffering physical or emotional trauma, as for example after an accident or while under anaesthesia. Perceptions of everything said or done in one's vicinity at such traumatic times are, according to Scientology, recorded in the reactive mind as engrams. Hubbard taught that engrams can have accumulated not merely during one's present lifetime but also in past lives. In Have You Lived Before This Life? he stated (p. 1) that "the existence of past lives is proven in Scientology" and he presented various narratives from people recounting events from past lives. In the foreword to Scientology: A History of Man he wrote that (p. 1) "this is a cold-blooded and factual account of your last sixty trillion years." He also reported (p. 3) that when he limited auditing to a person's current lifetime the beneficial results for people suffering from mental and physical illness were slow and mediocre, whereas when he audited the "whole track," including past lifetimes, the results were swift and spectacular. In Mission into Time (originally published under the title A Test of Whole Track Recall) he told of the time when he was a sailor in Carthage about 200 BC. Furthermore, he stated (p. 69) that "I know with certainty where I was and who I was in the last 80 trillion years." He also claimed to have discovered from auditing his whole track that there have been repetitive types of society and, for example, that: about thirty-three trillion trillion years ago, there was a society that was not too different from about 1920, but with the rococo of the 19th century - the potted-palm type of motif, the fedora hat, same clothes, the various signs. The razzle-dazzle gentleman wore a widestriped shirt. Ages later, in the same locality, there was an Arabian civilization that didn't know anything about automobiles or machinery but had lots of minarets, turbans, baggy pants and horses. (Mission into Time, p. 74)

[Page 5 of 12]

Is Scientology A Religion? by Alan W. Black Accounts such as those cited above constitute the narrative or mythic dimension of Scientology. The belief in past lives has some similarities to Hindu and Buddhist teaching on reincarnation, although Scientologists do not generally use the latter term to describe their beliefs. A recent official reference work on Scientology states: Today in Scientology, many people have certainty that they have lived lives prior to their current one. These are referred to as past lives, not reincarnation. Individuals are free to believe this or not; past lives are not a dogma in Scientology, but generally Scientologists, during their auditing, experience a past life and then know for themselves that they have lived before. (What is Scientology?, pp. 546-547) A major emphasis of the narrative or mythic dimension of Scientology is thus upon the activities and experiences of the thetan in times past, whether these have to do with the creation of matter, energy, space and time, or with significant events believed to have affected the thetan during this life or in a previous life. A further aspect of the narrative dimension is the account given in various Scientology publications of the life history of L. Ron Hubbard, the authoritative source of the teachings and practices of Scientology. [See also: Corresponding section II.III]

III.III. THE PRACTICAL AND RITUAL DIMENSION
At the heart of Scientology are certain distinctive religious practices, a central one of which is termed auditing, or processing. This practice involves a one-to-one relationship between an officially designated auditor (a minister or minister-in-training in the Church of Scientology) and a person seeking the benefit of auditing. The aim of the auditor is to help the other person (termed a preclear) discover and erase the debilitating imprints (engrams) left from past experiences. In an auditing session, which typically lasts up to two and a half hours, the auditor asks a structured series of questions, acknowledging the answer given by the preclear to each question before the next question is asked. As part of this process, the auditor uses an electropsychometer (E-Meter) to help identify areas of spiritual distress or difficulty. There are various auditing processes, each designed to help preclears improve their ability to confront and handle part of their existence. When one particular area of a person's existence has been satisfactorily dealt with in this way, the auditing process moves on to another area. The ultimate objective, which requires many auditing sessions, is to achieve new states of being called Clear and Operating Thetan, about which more will be said under the heading of the experiential dimension. Although auditing in Scientology has some resemblances to practices of confession and pastoral counselling in some other religions, it also has its own distinctive characteristics and procedures, as well as its own particular interpretation of the spiritual significance of those procedures. Scientologists claim that such auditing has an efficacy not found elsewhere. According to an official publication:

[Page 6 of 12]

Is Scientology A Religion? by Alan W. Black There are no variables in the technology of auditing. No random results or haphazard applications. Auditing is not a period of vague free association. Each process is exact in its design and in its application, and attains a definite result after correctly administered. Scientology auditing can bring any person from a condition of spiritual blindness to the brilliant joy of spiritual existence. (What is Scientology?, p. 156) Another fundamental practice of Scientology is termed training. This involves systematic study and application of the axioms and principles of Scientology as enunciated by L. Ron Hubbard. Many such training programs are available, ranging from introductory courses that teach basic principles, to longer courses that train professional auditors, and to still more advanced courses that deal with the highest levels of spiritual awareness and proficiency. Facilities for these programs are available at designated locations, where individuals study prescribed materials and apply them in practice, working at their own pace under the general guidance of trained course supervisors (ministers). Just as auditing is considered by Scientologists to be essential to the achievement of the states of Clear and above, training is considered essential if one is to maintain and advance beyond the state of Clear. Although the content of such training is distinctive to Scientology, the purposes which Scientologists believe such training serves are analogous to those claimed to be served by various spiritual exercises and educational programs in other religions. The practical and ritual dimension of Scientology also contains other elements similar in some respects to those found in other religions. In a Sunday service within the Church of Scientology, one finds something akin to what one would find in a Unitarian Universalist Church. The focus of the sermon is typically upon some aspect of Scientology, such as one of its axioms, some aspect of its codes, or one of the Eight Dynamics. The Creed of the Church of Scientology and the Prayer for Total Freedom may be said. Like other religious denominations, the Church of Scientology also conducts rites of passage such as naming ceremonies, weddings and funerals. Because of its doctrine of past lives, naming ceremonies have particular significance in Scientology. [See also: Corresponding section II.I]

III.IV. THE EXPERIENTIAL DIMENSION
As already noted, a primary objective of Scientology is to enable individuals to achieve the state of Clear. This involves erasing all engrams and thus eliminating the "reactive mind." According to Scientology, becoming Clear restores and strengthens one's individuality and creativity, one's inherent goodness and decency. The accounts given in What is Scientology? (pp. 307-309) by persons who have attained the state of Clear are as effusive as the accounts given by evangelical Christians of the transformation of their lives as a result of an encounter with Christ. Scientologists claim that the state of Clear was not possible before the advent of Scientology: The state of Clear has never existed before. No matter how able a being may have been, no matter what powers he possessed, no matter his strengths, the reactive mind was there, hidden and eventually dragging him down again.

[Page 7 of 12]

Is Scientology A Religion? by Alan W. Black The full glory of the state of Clear has no comparable description in any literature existing in the culture, religious or otherwise. The state has long been sought but was impossible to achieve until the researches and breakthroughs of L. Ron Hubbard. (What is Scientology?, p. 221) In claiming that the salvation it offers is unique, Scientology is paradoxically similar to the Abrahamic religions - Judaism, Christianity and Islam. Scientology also teaches that after attaining the state of Clear it is possible to go on to even greater heights of spiritual freedom, which are the various levels of Operating Thetan (OT). Operating Thetan is defined as "a state of being above Clear, in which the Clear has become refamiliarized with his native abilities. An Operating Thetan is knowing and willing cause over life, thought, matter, energy, space and time" (What is Scientology?, p. 814). In this context, operating means "able to operate without dependency on things" (Scientology 0-8, p. 226). Once this state is fully reached, the thetan is capable of accomplishing anything (The Scientology Handbook, p. xxii). Hence it is claimed that abilities the thetan has lost in antiquity are recovered as a person advances through the OT levels, until eventually the thetan reaches a stage of full awareness, memory and ability as a spirit independent of the flesh, free from the endless cycle of birth and death (What is Scientology?, pp. 222-223). This condition has some similarities to what Buddhists term nirvana. The path used by Scientologists to progress systematically toward the highest level of awareness - Total Freedom - is termed The Bridge. Various publications of Scientology contain a chart setting out the sequence of steps one must follow to achieve that goal, and the awareness characteristics associated with each of those stages. Scientologists claim that their experience confirms the efficacy of this route mapped out by L. Ron Hubbard, and that Scientology is the culmination of a religious tradition extending back at least ten thousand years through the Buddhist, Hindu and Vedic scriptures, as well as in parts of Celtic, Greek and early Christian teachings (The Phoenix Lectures, Chapters 1-3; The Scientology Handbook, p. xxvii). [See also: Corresponding section II.II]

III.V. THE ETHICAL DIMENSION
Scientology also teaches that progress along The Bridge both requires and enables the attainment of high moral and ethical standards. Thus, in his Introduction to Scientology Ethics, Hubbard claimed (p. 9) that an important breakthrough in Scientology was the development of "the basic technology of ethics." Hubbard used the term "morals" to refer to a collectively agreed code of good conduct (p. 24), whereas he defined ethics as "the actions an individual takes on himself in order to accomplish optimum survival for himself and others on all [eight] dynamics" (p. 17). Hubbard stressed the rationality of ethical behaviour: "Ethics actually consists of rationality toward the highest level of survival." (p. 15); "If a moral code were thoroughly reasonable, it could, at the same time, be considered thoroughly ethical. But only at this highest level could the two be called the same" (p. 25).

[Page 8 of 12]

Is Scientology A Religion? by Alan W. Black As Scientology evolved, it developed a series of codes of behaviour applicable to particular situations. One is the Auditor's Code, a series of promises to be kept by the auditor in order to maintain professional standards. Another is the Supervisor's Code, which defines the principles of conduct required of persons providing oversight within the Church of Scientology. There is also the Code of Honour, which is a more general series of maxims applicable to human relationships. Additionally, there is the Code of a Scientologist, which provides guidelines for behaviour oriented toward the upholding of human rights and the spread of Scientology throughout the world (What is Scientology?, pp. 580-587). Scientology has its own terminology for referring to behaviour which is harmful or which transgresses a moral code that one has agreed to. Such behaviour is termed an overt. An overt which one hides or denies is called a withhold. In the process of auditing, attention is given, inter alia, to overts and withholds which the preclear needs to come to terms with. At a more general level, Scientology conceives of goodness in terms of "constructive survival action" (Introduction to Scientology Ethics, p. 19). As construction may also entail a degree of destruction, the former must outweigh the latter in order for something to be considered good. Conversely, anything which is more destructive than constructive is, by definition, evil. With these definitions in mind, Scientology sets out a means whereby the individual can progressively raise his or her ethical level and so increase survival along each of the eight dynamics. The "technology of ethics" specifies twelve "ethical states" or conditions and provides precise steps or formulas whereby one can move from one condition to a higher one. At the lowest level, there is a condition of confusion, where there is only disorder rather than anything productive. At the highest level, there is a condition of power, where little if anything can imperil survival. In between these two extremes, there are various other conditions arranged in sequence: treason, enemy, doubt, liability, non-existence, danger, emergency, normal operation, affluence and power change (Introduction to Scientology Ethics, Chapters 3 and 4). Although Scientologists use the term "ethics" with some connotations which are different from those that are dominant in Western philosophical discourse, it is clear that an ethical dimension is a fundamental part of Scientology. Also relevant under this heading is the booklet The Way to Happiness, written by Hubbard as a "nonreligious moral code based wholly on common sense." Whilst the twenty one precepts expounded in this booklet are not intended simply for Scientologists, they are accepted by Scientologists as part of their moral code. Forbidden are promiscuity, murder, theft, illegal acts, and harming a person of good will. Enjoined are taking care of yourself, temperance, loving and helping children, respecting parents, setting a good example, truthfulness, supporting a government designed and run for all the people, safeguarding and improving the environment, trustworthiness, fulfilling obligations, industriousness, developing competence, respecting others' religious beliefs, trying not to do to others that which you would not like them to do to you, trying positively to treat others as you would want them to treat you, and achieving success. As practical expressions of moral principles such as these, agencies established by the Church of Scientology have been active in anti-drug campaigns, in rehabilitating drug addicts and criminals, in eradicating illiteracy and remedying educational disadvantage, in improving the environment, in providing disaster relief, and in defending human rights.

III.VI. THE SOCIAL AND INSTITUTIONAL DIMENSION
The ecclesiastical structure of the Church of Scientology is arranged in a hierarchical pattern which matches the levels defined in The Bridge to Total Freedom. At the lowest level of this hierarchy are field auditors and Dianetics Counselling Groups. Either alone or as part of a Dianetics Counselling Group, field auditors can deliver auditing and introductory services up to the level permitted by their training and authorization. So that persons introduced to Scientology in this way can proceed further up the Bridge, they are then referred to a designated Class V organization of Scientology for further auditing and training. Scientology missions constitute a second tier in the ecclesiastical structure. Such missions are often located in parts of the world where Scientology is not already well established. They offer introductory services in Dianetics and Scientology. As they lack full church status, these missions cannot train or ordain Scientology ministers. The expectation is, however, that as missions grow in size and acquire more highly trained leadership they will eventually become fully fledged Scientology churches (Class V organizations). Class V organizations make up the third tier in the structure. They are authorized to offer auditing and training up to the level of Clear. They supervise the activities of field auditors and missions, and provide basic training for ministers, as well as being centres for other types of ritual and community service mentioned under previous headings. Class V organizations provide the core of the day-to-day ministries offered by the Church of Scientology. In four major centres around the world there are higher level churches which offer more advanced Scientology auditing and training services. Persons participating in these programs typically do so on an intensive, full-time basis, very often with the expectation of continuing to serve as ministers within the Church of Scientology after returning to the local Scientology churches from which they have come. At a still higher level is the Flag Service Organization, located in Clearwater, Florida. This religious retreat provides, in various languages, advanced auditing and the highest levels of auditor training. The highest levels of Scientology auditing are delivered on the Freewinds, a ship based in the Caribbean. This ship, which is the home of the Church of Scientology's Flag Ship Service Organization, also provides a locale for conventions, seminars and specialized courses attended by Scientologists from various parts of the world. Management of the world-wide operations of the Church of Scientology is vested in ecclesiastical bodies located in Los Angeles. The Executive Director International is assisted by eleven senior executive officers, each of whom oversees a particular activity or function of the Church. The bureaucratic structure of the Church of Scientology International (CSI) bears some resemblances to that of the Roman Catholic Church, though the tasks of the various officials within the CSI are specific to Scientology, reflecting the organizational and administrative theories propounded by L. Ron Hubbard.

[Page 10 of 12]

Is Scientology A Religion? by Alan W. Black The Church of Scientology places particular emphasis upon ensuring that the procedures used in auditing and training are exactly as specified by Hubbard. His writings on Scientology are spoken of as the Scriptures. These writings thus perform a function analogous to that performed by sacred writings in various other religions. The final arbiter of orthodoxy and orthopraxis in Scientology is the Religious Technology Center, established by Hubbard for this purpose. Consistent with their belief that they are immortal spiritual beings, some members of the Church of Scientology sign pledges of eternal service to Scientology and its goals. These persons are members of a religious order known as the Sea Organization. They wear distinctive uniforms and generally live communally. Here again there are obvious similarities to religious orders in some other religions. [See also: Corresponding section II.VI]

III.VII. THE MATERIAL DIMENSION
Like mosques in Islam, churches in Christianity and temples in Buddhism, Hinduism and Judaism, the churches of Scientology are typically marked by specific religious symbols, most notably by two overlapping triangles intertwined with the letter S, standing for Scientology. The triangles symbolize fundamental elements in the doctrines of Scientology. The corners of one triangle stand for Affinity, Reality and Communication which, according to Hubbard's teaching, jointly bring about understanding. The corners of the other triangle stand for Knowledge, Responsibility and Control, which are deemed to be necessary in all areas of one's life. Another common symbol of Scientology is a sunburst cross, which is similar to the cross found in Christianity but with four additional points coming from the centre. The eight points of the Scientology cross represent the eight dynamics listed above. This cross is commonly worn by ministers of the Church of Scientology. Other official symbols represent Dianetics, membership of the Sea Organization, attainment of the state of Operating Thetan, and membership of Division 6 (the Public Division of the Church of Scientology). The use of these and other registered symbols is scrupulously regulated by the Religious Technology Center. Another part of the material dimension of Scientology is the E-Meter, which is described in Scientology publications as a "religious artifact in the Church confessional." The E-Meter is an essential piece of apparatus in auditing, which in turn is a fundamental activity in Scientology. Also part of the material dimension of Scientology is its many publications, ranging from bestselling books such as Dianetics through to the many volumes in the Research and Discovery Series, from Understanding the E-Meter through to The Background and Ceremonies of the Church of Scientology, from The Way to Happiness through to the nearly 3000 recorded lectures of Mr Hubbard. As already mentioned, Hubbard's religious publications constitute the Scriptures of Scientology. Dissemination of these publications is seen by the Church of Scientology as a means toward Hubbard's ultimate goal of bringing the whole of the planet to a state of Clear.

IV. CONCLUSION
The above analysis shows that the seven dimensions of religion identified by Smart are all present in Scientology. It also shows that although Scientology has its own distinctive characteristics, many of its beliefs and practices are similar to, or analogues of, those found in one or more other recognized religions. The question as to whether Scientology is a religion has also been considered in the High Court of Australia (The Church of the New Faith v. The Commissioner for Payroll Tax, Australian Law Journal Reports 57 [1983]: 785ff.). The unanimous opinion of that Court was that Scientology is a religion. In their judgments in that particular case, Justices Mason and Brennan used two criteria of religion: "(i) belief in a supernatural Being, Thing or Principle; and (ii) the acceptance of canons of conduct in order to give effect to that belief" (Australian Law Journal Reports 57 [1983]: 785). Justices Wilson and Deane used four criteria as aids in determining whether a particular system of ideas and practices constituted a religion: (i) that the particular collection of ideas and/or practices involved belief in the supernatural, that is, belief that reality extended beyond that which was capable of perception by the senses; (ii) that the ideas related to man's nature and place in the universe and his relation to things supernatural; (iii) that the ideas were accepted by adherents as requiring or encouraging them to observe particular standards or codes of conduct or to participate in particular practices having supernatural significance; (iv) that, however loosely knit and varying in beliefs and practices adherents might be, they constituted an identifiable group or identifiable groups. (Australian Law Journal Reports 57 [1983]: 785) One or more of the Justices in this case specifically considered the fact that there have been additions to the beliefs and practices of Scientology since it was first formulated, that Scientology does not insist that its adherents should discard other religious affiliations, and that there is a strong commercial emphasis in Scientology's practices. The Justices concluded that none of these facts disqualified Scientology from being recognized as a religion; indeed, similar statements of fact could be made about some other recognized religions at various points in their history. For the reasons given in the preceding analysis, I consider that Scientology is rightly regarded as a religion. As well as having the salient generic characteristics that typify recognized religions, Scientology has its own distinctive features - particular beliefs and practices that mark it out as a different religion rather than a non-religion.
