I need a brief history that makes sense about Scientology?



The Birth of Dianetics started in the USA in the late 1940s. But one needs to look earlier.

In 1923, when twelve years old, L. Ron Hubbard was introduced to Sigmund Freud’s work by Commander Joseph C. Thompson, of the US Navy Medical Corp. Commander Thomson had been sent by the US Navy to study under Sigmund Freud. After this introduction to the mind L. Ron Hubbard travelled through Asia, studying and visiting Buddhist monasteries.

In 1932 he coined the word Scientology to describe his research. In 1938 he compiled philosophic writings into a manuscript, “Excalibur.” The manuscript did not contain any techniques or spiritual counselling, but was a discussion of the composition of life. His research continued.

The second-world war intervened. In 1945, partially blind and lame from hip and back injuries, he successfully applied his theories on himself and other Americans liberated from Japanese prisoner of war camps.

In 1948 he published a manuscript, today titled Dianetics: The Original Thesis, which proved very popular.

Mr. Hubbard soon decided to write a book on the subject, a full account of all his discoveries to date, a full manual of the mind, called, Dianetics: The Modern Science of Mental Health.

Dianetics: The Modern Science of Mental Health was published on May 5, 1950. It sold phenomenally well. Over 22 million copies have been sold to date.

Dianetics Discoveries

Mr. Hubbard had discovered separate minds, which could be naturally and harmlessly accessed with simple techniques to help a person. Much of a person’s dreads, fears, irrationalities, and shortcomings could be addressed through these minds.

Mr. Hubbard found that a person could recall distant pasts, particularly birth, and the prenatal nine months. He also found that when a person recalled traumatic times from the developmental stages before birth, a person would respond well.

The book, Dianetics: The Modern Science of Mental Health outlined the simple and exact theories and procedures.

That people could recall nine months before birth was new. The technology outlined in Dianetics is simple and works. A person can get rid of their unwanted emotional symptoms, be they shyness, fear, anger, unwanted emotional outbursts, psycho-somatic (mentally generated) illnesses and more. Irrational causes in the mind have been found.

The Evolution of Scientology

While Dianetics worked precisely and positively, L. Ron Hubbard continued researching for higher states.

Since 1949 practitioners had been occasionally reporting past life memories.

In 1951 Mr. Hubbard gave a lecture on how spiritual thought could be measured by an instrument. An engineer in that audience manufactured the instrument, called an e-meter (electro-galvanometer). It was not complicated. With it the mind was available for total investigation.

These discoveries proved man was a life force, his own soul, a spiritual entity, inhabiting a body, surviving death. And by accessing past life memories containing adverse emotions, a person became more able, aware, intelligent, and potentially possible to achieve the stuff of dreams.

The first Church of Scientology was established in 1953. The Founding Church of Scientology was established in Washington DC in 1954

From the results of research into the life-force that is man, it was found that man obeyed certain laws, as did all life. These were not physical universe laws, but hitherto unknown laws of the spirit. .

In 1959 the headquarters of Scientology moved from the USA to East Grindstead, Sussex, United Kingdom, to take advantage of the communication lines reaching out of Great Britain. This became the worldwide hub of the expanding Church of Scientology. Here Mr. Hubbard continued his research. The Church of Scientology expanded into all English speaking countries plus Europe.
