Description: Hubbard compares results obtained with Scientology against those he claims are sought and rarely obtained in Buddhism and Christianity.
Scientology today is producing Clears in greater and greater numbers. Its expansion is accelerating as standard technology delivers what Scientology promises in each Scientology Organization throughout the world.
Scientology is the route from human being to total freedom or total beingness.
Dianetics was the route from aberrated or normal to capable human being. This step had never before been achieved in Man’s history. Oddly, the step from human being to spirit has been achieved, if rarely, in Buddhism, other spiritual practices, even Christianity, but was not generally credited.
Scientology really achieves it and for the first time with TOTAL stability, no relapse and invariably one for one. Nevertheless, Man had an inkling of the goals of Scientology even though he considered them almost beyond God.
But Man had no inkling whatever of Dianetics. None. This was the bolt from the blue. Man was hacking and sawing and shocking and injecting and teaching and moralizing and counselling and hanging and jailing men with enthusiasm, without any idea at all of what caused Man to behave as he did or what made him sick or well.
THE answer was and still is Dianetics.
