Re: Questions about Scientology? Jung was the first to use a skin resistance galvanometer and also a list of questions to ask while connected to such an instrument. This is very key concepts re scn auditing, and are VERY mainstream in scn. No. Hubbard was a master hypnotist and per his beginners book " Evolution of a Science" [ re dianetics] used it as a research tool. There are schools of psychological thought [ Specially NLP I believe] that believe concentrating on anything is liable to induce a hypnotic state. However scn is the reverse of that. For example " Objective processing" is designed to bring one up to "present time". ie the reverse of hypnotism. Commands such as" look at that wall" etc. You want more on this ask. c You may wish to give examples as I don't know exactly what you are referring to. There are obvious mistakes re homosexuals and the famous quotes in SOS. That would be IMO an error. In the fifties Gays probably were in some sense " 1.1 Covert hostility" as they were not considered a proper part of society. Hubbard also perhaps considered the denial of children assumed was non survival. Would have been nice if he was a trailblazer re human rights here but it would have back then been " Out PR". I guess he just expressed his own prejudice which persists till today in COS. Most definitely not in the FZ bar a few ------. Absolutely not. See a later post. I do consider Hubbard a genius in his work. I consider those who try to improve on it have a tough job. I have on my forum done an admin scale which includes trying to improve this as a goal. His stuff works, others I hope improve it. Don't consider scn is hypnotherapy. Yes. Ideally. From tech Dict. Case Gain. Def 2 " Any case betterment according to the PC." Well monetary loss. Upset. Can scientific proof work here? Can the same re mainstream psychology do better? CO$ have a companion site to " Religious freedom watch" " Freezone Survivors" detailing the fuck ups of the FZ. Almost all examples are complete bullshit. Probably all. I know all the people involved. Even CO$ with its resources finds just about nothing to find wrong re the FZ. You might wish to see the " Proof "That Max Hauri is working with the german secret service. Its a clip from " The Beginners Guide to L ron Hubbard " a brit channel 4 TV programme which is the only one to ever see scn tech as valuable. Only re Metapsychology and TIR which I believe I've cited. others long ago of little significance. Thanks.
