Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard on family and sex: As enlightened as you'd imagine - 2019-04-27
Earlier this week, Sunny Pereira mentioned that Brad Pitt took a Scientology course that would have involved reading part of L. Ron Hubbard's 1951 follow up to Dianetics, the ponderous tome Science of Survival. So for our 'Scientology Lit' feature this week, we thought we'd introduce you to that delightful volume of Hubbard thought, which is known in particular for its description of the "Tone Scale" of human emotion. In the name of Fair Use, for criticism and analysis, we're taking a glance at Chapter 18, "Sexual Behavior, Attitude Toward Children," which is really something. Keep in mind, this is bedrock "scripture" in Scientology, the word of "Source." We think you'll especially enjoy the final few paragraphs.
This is the column devoted to the second dynamic. This dynamic would normally be called sex. In Dianetics, one considers sex to be divided into parts: the sexual act; and the produce of sex, children.
Any dynamic can be considered to be a flowing line of theta. The power of theta along any dynamic varies from individual to individual. Engrams can be considered to lie across the dynamics in such a way as to cause dispersion. When the engrams are removed the dispersion, which would be theta turning into entheta and the inhibition of the flow of free theta, disappears and the natural flow of free theta can begin again.
