Hubbard and Scientology claims that this yet unreleased technology will reverse the dwindling spiral of this civilization and make planetary clearing a reality. The following is a fundraising letter that reflects these claims.
Dianetics for advanced Scientologists is called New Era Dianetics for OTs or NOTs. Here Scientology makes the claim that NOTs auditing cures unwanted somatics, i.e., physical conditions and unwanted aches and pains.
Scientology The Fundamentals of Thought was one of the books that Scientologists sold me very early in my Scientology "career, " probably in the first week. This is considered one of the basic cult books, indeed the book's subtitle is: "The Basic Book of the Theory and Practice of Scientology for Beginners." Here are a few of the claims for the book and Scientology that Hubbard makes for beginners:
A Scientologist who fails to use Scientology technology and its administrative and justice procedures on the world around him will continue to be too enturbulated to do his job. That sounds extreme to anyone. But if you look it over, you will find that the " power" of the "society" and "state" is pretended and is made from an effort to be powerful where they actually lack power. Our situation is quite the reverse. Ours is the power of truth and we are capable of power as a group, having power as individuals due to processing and power of wisdom due to superior technology. Therefore, when we grant too much beingness to their " power," we are granting validity to a falsehood and so it recoils on us. We are, in short, knocking our own heads off by failing to use our knowledge and authority when we administer or handle our fellow man or society.
