Description: Hubbard instructs his staff as to their purpose, and gives instructions regarding Scientology publications. Instructs to avoid using specific kinds of "trite" reference material, including Rosicrucian material.
The original composition of the WW Division was the realization that for lack of a central operating or governing body in operation all of these various orgs were more or less adrift. They couldn’t in actual fact function without particularly good co-ordination from a central org. So the WW Division was formed.
Now it was first thought that your operating area was the Dissem Advisory Section and then I suddenly woke up and realized that the original purpose—why you were formed in the first place—had been totally violated. You were formed in the first place with just exactly this purpose and no other purpose: to help LRH get out the magazine materials and the promotion materials that he gets out for Scientology—that’s the total purpose.
You can go to Museums for anything else you want to. Lay off Egyptian. Lay off Chaldean, Babylonian, Persian, Chinese, Japanese, Buddhistic, because they don’t all work. As far as I’m concerned those fields are now trite. Trite in the extreme. That’s my feeling about them. Mind, the Rosicrucians, I think, are using Chaldean or something-I’ve not exactly identified-it may be they haven’t either. We can do better than that.
You got a good start on writing style now. My writing style seems to be very beautiful but what my writing style is can be summarized: it is friendly and it makes nothing out of pomposity; maybe it could be further described, but that’s good enough at the moment.
