New Science of Survival Lectures

L. Ron Hubbard's Science of Survival Lectures

L. Ron Hubbard's Science of Survival Lectures

I’ve expounded on it before, but I’ve long felt that Science of Survival is one of the most important books anyone can study, provided they are interested in SURVIVAL.

I’ve read the book several times, and have listened to the accompanying Science of Survival lectures a few more times, and always find them applicable.  However, recently, through all of the work Mr. David Miscavige and Golden Era Productions have been doing to restore previously-inaudible lectures by L. Ron Hubbard, three more lectures were recently unearthed which were a part of the Wichita, Kansas First Annual Conference of Dianetic Auditors which provided the first spoken description of the contents of Science of Survival and the Chart of Human Evaluation.

From that lecture series:

“If you find out where he is on the Tone Scale, you can tell how much responsibility he’s going to manifest, how much persistence he’s going to manifest. You can tell how he’s going to treat children. You can tell how he’s going to talk to you, how he’s going to listen to you. You can tell what he’ll do with a message that you give him to give to somebody else. You can also tell just rather automatically the physiological condition this person is going to be in.” —L. Ron Hubbard

I’m now in the midst of listening to these newly-released lectures, and am currently listening to LRH’s first description of the 8 Dynamics – something that has intense applicability to anyone in life, trying to figure out how life works and why people act strangely.  He speaks of why people have embraced (or enforced) communism, psychoanalysis, marxism, and a host of other practices that have come & gone.  Fascinating so far!

Producing the Materials of Dianetics & Scientology

31 08 2010


Bridge Publications, the publisher of all of L. Ron Hubbard’s Dianetics & Scientology materials, recently revamped their website – and with it got to show off the absolutely staggering amount of output that their new facility is able to put out. 

The full body of Scientology and Dianetics materials comprises thousands of lectures and scores of books, as well as myriad other courses such as the new introductory courses like the Having a Happy Baby Course and others on efficiency, ethics, organization, communication and marriage.  And nearly all of these materials are available in 16 languages, many in as many as 50 languages.

With that, it’s no wonder that Bridge Publications has the world’s largest all-digital print-on-demand facility, able to economically produce both large runs of English books like Dianetics, or small runs of a more specialized item like the Successfully Raising Children course in Norwegian – and at equal cost.

Check out the video they have on their new site which gives a tour of their facility – for someone who’s worked around design & print like I have, you’ll find it staggering:


Checking out the New Dianetics Lectures

22 07 2009

PICT2234Now that I’m in receipt of my new How to Use Dianetics DVD, as well as my new Dianetics Professional Course lectures, I’m taking a brief pause on my Command of Theta lectures, and am buckling down to complete my study on Dianetics.

I basically couldn’t help myself.  After watching the first part of the new Dianetics DVD, I was hooked – as there’s just so much to that science that can be put to immediate use, especially with every part of it depicted graphically like that.

And then, the Dianetics Professional course – which contains the best description of the ARC Triangle and Dianetics procedure – should be an excellent way to round out my education on such.

And if you need a refresher on how the ARC Triangle works, here’s a video:

Control of an Individual by Sound

18 07 2009

imageI’m right now listening to the lectures by L. Ron Hubbard entitled “The Command of Theta”.   They’re lectures that are part of the Basics, the essential study of Scientology materials comprising all of the basic truths of Scientology. 

The lectures themselves are a good ways along in the sequence of study, so definitely don’t attack this series first if you want a taste of Scientology, but as I’ve already been through all of the books & lectures that lead up to this, going through this series has been quite something.

I listened to a lecture riding home on the Metro a few days ago which I thought was brilliant – a lecture entitled The Control of the Individual by an Unknown: Sound.  The lecture goes over in more detail why it is in Dianetics that the sound contained in painful incidents can continue to have such an effect on a person later in life – and why it is that sound in particular can cause this.

If you’re in need of refreshing on the basics of how an engram works, here’s a video from the Scientology Video Channel:

One of the parts of this lecture I thought interesting was when he was discussing the mechanics of this – in that just about any other source of control or sensory input, an individual can shut himself off from it if he wants.  If he’s touching a hot stove, he can take his hand off it.  If he’s seeing light that’s too intense, he can close his eyes.  However, the body is designed such that you can’t actually disconnect sound if you don’t want it.  So, sound can then be used as a means of control, and can also reactively equate to pain and other incidents where the person couldn’t control what was going on. 

It was just a neat lecture from a technical perspective, as it gives another angle on the basics that you get with Dianetics – and why it does work to relieve the individual of such incidents of pain.
