Stealing the works of others? What would you expect of a has-been science fiction writer.
L. Ron Hubbard was not the source of Dianetics and Scientology, but he was it’s spokesman aka front man. Scientology was only one outcropping from a hidden group of men who wanted to find methods of controlling minds. And they were seeking to find methods for increasing their own, “mental and spiritual powers‚” (which they are playing the game of self-limiting in the first place). This search was going on well before the lifetime of L. Ron Hubbard. Research data was being collected over a long period of time. Part of their collected data was these volumes of information subscribed to India. Hubbard’s participation came later, after they were already going. Although that knowledge handed out around India was all mucked up, there was still some distorted pieces of the original valid knowledge that could be gleaned out of it. L. Ron Hubbard acted as a front man for this hidden group of researchers.
