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”).
