Welcome to our ongoing project, where we blog a 1950 first edition of Scientology's bible, Dianetics, with the help of ex-Scientologist, Bay Area lawyer, blogger, and author Vance Woodward. Go here for the first post in the series.

We've now reached the chapter titled "The 'Demons'," and after a superfluous flourish, L. Ron Hubbard gets to his subject: that his "engrams" explain what mankind had thought of as demons plaguing the mind.

In case the reader might think he was being literal, he writes "There are no real demons in dianetics" in italics. "That's underscored in case some mystic runs around telling people that a new science of the mind believes in demons."
