Scientology is defined as knowing how to know. It is an applied religious philosophy dealing with the study of knowledge. Through the application of its technology it brings about desirable changes in the conditions of life.
But, according to Scientology Literature it could be better defined as summated and organized information about you. It is everything that has been known about you for at least 2500 years, but it is summated so it is communicable, so that it is applicable and so that it gets some definite results. Way over and above these things, Scientology is capable of changing any unwanted condition in your life!

The purpose of Scientology is to bring about greater awareness and ability. It concentrates on the betterment of normal a awareness, intelligence, and communication. An individual is trapped by those things which he does not confront about himself. Through Scientology, he can get out of this trap and move up to total freedom.
Loneliness, guilt, feelings of inferiority, depression, nervousness, inhibitions, impulsiveness, alienation, repressions, compulsions, out of communication. Anyone of these conditions can be the ruin of a job, marriage, friendship or life in general. Scientology frees you from this to a state known as CLEAR.
The optimum individual is called a Clear. A Clear can be tested for any and all psychoses, neuroses, compulsions and repressions (all aberrations) and can be examined for any autogenic (self-generated) diseases refered to as psychosomatic ills. These tests confirm the Clear to be entirely without such ills or aberrations. Additional tests of his intelligence indicate it to be high above the current norm.
Observations of his activity demonstrates that he pursues existance with vigor and satisfaction. For more than 2500 years man has dreamed of this goal and in February, 1966 this breakthrough was achieved. The road to Clear is very definite and the state is stable and very attainable today. Over 25 million people are now on the road to Clear. Thousands have attained this state of a higher evolution of man.
Scientology was founded by L. Ron Hubbard, an American engineer, writer and philosopher who spent most of his early years studying human behavior and researching ways in which man could realize more of his potential abilities. In 1950 he realized the results of his research in a book, Dianetics: The Modern Science of Mental Health, which for the first time presented the first precision science of the mind.
Scientologists say "your life is simply the elimination of things you don't want." A highly skilled professional called an Auditor, directs the person's attention to certain areas, asks questions and listens to the answers.
Auditing permits a person to examine the source of his upsets (which has been hidden from him) and release himself from its influence. Release means to let loose to set "free". Scientologists explain that from those upsets and unwanted events of the past on which attention is fixed. One goes release in an established order and on the evolutionary process to Clear is an easy gradient over their last grade attained.
Clearing now takes about one to two months. It is designed on a gradient basis so each and every individaul can attain this state.
The first step you would take into Scientology would be to enroll in the Communications Course. "The Hubbard Apprentice Scientology Course is a one week course that teaches you the fundamentals of communication and it guarentees an increased ability to communicate, study, learn, and speak" explained Rich Hamady, a staff member in Flint.
With the Communications Course you will increase the ability to confront, the ability to duplicate, and the ability to control.

"Scientology also had the most effective drug rehabilitation in existance" stated Hamady.
"It enables a person to expand his awareness without the use of drugs" and enables those on drugs to get off immediately with no ill effects and no desire to get back on."
The awarenesses that are attained through drugs are temporary, dangerous, and kindergarden compared to those gained through Scientology.
