Description: Hubbard remarks on the philosophic error of Buddhism.
The only effects you can experience are those which you yourself dream up to experience. That’s fantastic! It gives us a brand-new look at cause, distance, effect. The truth of the matter is more like cause, distance, cause. All is cause. The Buddhist, you know, never got this one wrapped up. And his answer to it was have nothing to do with cause and have nothing to do with effect–leave them both entirely alone–making himself, therefore, totally guilty of the sins of omission of never assuming cause, which was the surest way in the world to spin anybody in.1
