The main Edinburgh practitioner, it seems, is a Mr Ernest Saren, and at the appointments he produces a personality "graph" showing the questionnaire results on ten "personality dimensions" such as happy-depressed and capable-inhibited. The final column on the capacity analysis chart gives an I.Q. figure. Saren's qualifications for discussing people's problems on the basis of this questionnaire, according to a H.A.P.I. spokesman, are scientology qualifications only. One of those tested in the H.A.P.I. building this week, a 19-year-old apprentice who had ...

His name is John McMaster. Once he was a mess like the rest of us. Now he's a "clear", one of the saints of a new cult called Scientology — without a single "engram" left to bug him. SOMETHING VERY ODD is going on in Toronto. People are leaving the country, changing their occupations, giving up their children, leaving their husbands, wives, or lovers, changing their whole lives. All in the name of something called Scientology. The whole thing got started ...

Saint Hill Manor is a traditional old English mansion that stands behind a high gateway on a quiet Sussex road some 30 miles south of London. Its size and age—it was built in 1728—give it an impressive but faintly brooding air. Before 1959 it was owned by the Maharaja of Jaipur, and before that by Mrs. Anthony Drexel Biddle. But it is a safe bet that in all its 236 years Saint Hill Manor has never seen anybody quite like its ...

When the Church of Scientology offered last August to send its E Meter into battle against Communist subversion, President Kennedy didn't even say, "No thanks." Because this religious organization when scorned has political fury of a Hell it doesn't especially believe in, Mr. Kennedy will hear more about his oversight. In the meantime, the Federal Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has seized the E Meter. FDA, bureaucratically unconcerned with any spiritua or ideological magic the machine might work, had United States ...

In May of last year, from the modest little town of Elizabeth, New Jersey, came a voice that promised complete salvation for mankind on this earth. That in itself is nothing new, but this particular voice was a powerful roar, worth at least a footnote in any account of our troubled age. It was the voice of a man by the name of L. Ron Hubbard. Until this moment, Hubbard had been known as a writer of science fiction fantasies. But ...

Dianetics // A critical appraisal of a best-selling book that originated in the realm of science-fiction and became the basis for a new cult — Consumer Reports
Type: Press
Source: Consumer Reports
Dianetics is the title of a book (and a "science") which, for many months, held its place as a best seller in the non-fiction field. According to its originator and to thousands of dianetics adherents, it is "the new Modern Science of Mental Health." Dianetic research institutes have been founded in many cities, with the dual purpose of studying mental and psychosomatic ills in the light of dianetic theories, and of training potential practitioners or "auditors" to treat sick people by ...

THERE'S BEEN NOTHING like it since Canasta, Aimee McPherson, and the Pyramid Clubs. It's the new "science"—some call it cult—of dianetics, called by its founder and major prophet, L. (for Lafayette) Ron Hubbard, 39, "the most clearly presented method of psychotherapy and self-improvement ever invented." Not one to court undue modesty, Hubbard flatly compares the creation of dianetics to the discovery of fire and the wheel. Hubbard's crusade started last May with the publication of a 452-page book (now known to ...
