Hubbard lectures on Scientology's legacy in the field of learning and education.
Instruction is an interesting subject. It's a very interesting subject, because we seem to be in the business of instruction. Now, you think of yourselves as auditors. Auditing techniques are a method of bringing people to know. Think it over.
A great oddity here is that the common denominator of living appears to be learning. In Dianetics we had survival as a common denominator. In Scientology we discover, much to our embarrassment, that that's inevitable. So we have to find another excuse, and the best excuse we can find without looking too far or weighing our brains down too much is learning.1
The truth of the matter is there is there's an awful lot more (this is between us Scientologists) to livingness than learningness. We're not going to go into any of them We're just going to talk about learningness, and we're going to show how everything could be pulled in and by some slight adjustment, and maybe going around a few fast curves, be common-denominatered into learning, which would make education our forte. Education.
The odd part of it is that a Scientologist can educate people that no one else has ever been able to educate. How do they do it? By auditing them. One of the things that rises in auditing is IQ, which tells you of course, secondarily, that learning rate goes up.
— L. Ron Hubbard
Lecture 25 October 1956: Education
1 Hubbard's one-word thesis for Dianetics is Survive! His mental technology rests on it. Here he announces that the new game is learning. See also IQ Claims .
