Hubbard discusses his early research into his own mind; says that after the war, he started including other people's experiences in his research.
In 1945 Hubbard was a malingering outpatient at Oak Knoll Naval Hospital where he claims he impersonated a medical doctor and gained access to the medical library and patient records of research patients, including returning POWs from Korea. He claims he conducted his early Dianetics research on unwitting mental patients using hypnosis and narcosynthesis.
Between 1945 and 1946, Hubbard partnered with Jack Parsons on magical experiments, including the infamous Babalon Working. Hubbard wormed out of Parsons the OTO's highest secrets, then made off with his girlfriend and his life savings.
One secret document gives instructions on how to turn elemental spirits into familiars.
Here he claims he stripped all the terminology out of his early research by 1950.
But I found something out during the session that I sure didn't like. I found out that the one thing I would never do, I had done. I found out that in about - in 1938, when I wrote the first notes and book on mental investigations, that every single cockeyed piece of terminology in it (none of which ever survived to 1949 or 50), every piece of that terminology was taken straight out of my own engrams. Boy, was my face red. And I was certainly pleased when I realized I'd had enough sense after the war to reevaluate, take other people's experiences and do a totally analytical approach to the thing and drop all of these terms. You get the idea? Boy, was my thetan red.
— L. Ron Hubbard
