General articles by L Ron Hubbard covering many aspects of Dianetics and Scientology

What Is Greatness?

Conflict or tolerance, cooperation or opposition, love or hate, such are the questions of both daily living and international affairs. In this article dating from the spring of 1966, Mr. Hubbard addresses the question: When subjected to hatred, what then is the answer to one’s own happiness?

The States Of Existence

Man is so visibly MAN that he overlooked in most of his philosophies and all of his sciences that there is more than one state of existence attainable by man.

Indeed, until we came along and changed their minds, all nineteenth century psychologists stated that man could never change. And described only one state of existence — mortal man.

What Is Dianetics? (Part 2)

Now, a true science not only recognizes the problems in its field, it offers a method for their solution. As a true science, Dianetics has evolved a method for recognizing and solving its particular problems. The method is known as Dianetic processing. The mode is reverie. The solution is the erasure of those recordings which, when restimulated, cause reactive behavior in the human being. The individual whose reactive mind bank no longer contains any unerased incident is known in Dianetic terminology as a Clear.

The Aims of Scientology

A civilization without insanity, without criminals and without war, where the able can prosper and honest beings can have rights, and where man is free to rise to greater heights, are the aims of Scientology.

In fact, when brought into play, the reactive mind can and does overpower the analytical mind. Worse, the reactive mind badgers and bedevils us throughout our entire life span.”
