Definitions of Dianetics and Scientology

This follows my last post on Scientology, further from the same chapter in Scientology 0-8 (part of the Scientology Basics Books) — something I thought bore repeating from the book.

LRH defines the difference between Scientology and Dianetics, and what the subjects actually are and do in the following:

“Dianetics is defined as, DIA (Greek) through, NOUS (Greek) soul.

DIANETICS is further redefined as WHAT THE SOUL IS DOING TO THE BODY.”

“SCIENTOLOGY, as defined, addresses the thetan (the spirit).  Scientology is used to increase spiritual freedom, intelligence, ability and produce immortality.

“SCIENTOLOGY is further refined as THE STUDY AND HANDLING OF THE SPIRIT IN RELATIONSHIP TO ITSELF, UNIVERSES AND OTHER LIFE.”  — LRH

Those definitions were significant to me, so I thought I’d write them down.

(Oh, and see this video on the difference between the Thetan, the Mind and the Body, if you were confused by the part above mentioning the word, “Thetan”).

    how do you make someone curious? start by building a huge structure out in a canyon well known to natives as sweeny canyon. do not say anything to the locals just keep them in the dark. after 911 and other events in our country this doesnt sit well with us natives we want an explanation what you scientologists are up to.
    we love and appreciate our freedom and open space here in wyoming and many are feeling like you are invading where you dont belong………..fess up now we want to know we are not stupid!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
