Dianetics Has No Patience for ESP or Telepathy - That's Pseudoscience! - 2013-06-06
Welcome to our ongoing project, where we blog a 1950 first edition of Scientology's bible, Dianetics, with the help of ex-Scientologist, lawyer, and author Vance Woodward. Go here for the first post in the series.
Vance, we've reached another marathon chapter in this book, "Mechanisms and Aspects of Therapy."
We were surprised to see that this chapter begins with a few paragraphs about extra-sensory perception — ESP. But in fact, Hubbard only brings it up in order to debunk it, in particular the person who says he can remember his time in the fetus with views from outside his mother's body.
