Dianetics can remove the aberrations which make man a selfish and anti-social creature.... It holds hope that man may at last dispense with the ugly institution of war, because wars are the end product of social aberrations at the national level... Dianetics can rectify the mental short circuits which bring accidental death, can increase longevity, minimize the pain of child-bearing and present mankind with vast new intellectual vistas... --Los Angeles Daily News --This text refers to the Audio CD edition.
The word Dianetics comes from the Greek dia, meaning "through"
and nous, meaning "soul", and is defined as "what the soul is doing to the
body." Dianetics is a methodology which can help alleviate unwanted
sensations and emotions, irrational fears and psychosomatic illnesses
(illnesses caused or aggravated by mental stress). It is most accurately
described as what the soul is doing to the body through the mind. The mind
is basically a communication and control system between the person and his
environment. It is composed of mental image pictures, which are recordings
of past experiences. The individual uses his mind to pose and solve
problems related to survival and to direct his efforts according to these
solutions. What is the Reactive Mind? The reactive mind is the portion of a
person's mind which works on a totally stimulus-response basis, which is
not under his volitional (willing) control, and which exerts force and the
power of command over his awareness, purposes, thoughts, body and actions.
The source of any negative emotion, attitude or feeling is fully revealed
in Dianetics. The causes of a person's feelings of grief or loss are buried
in the person's reactive mind, able to influence and control the person.
Dianetics technology guides a person through his or her reactive mind to
locate -- and permanently eradicate -- the actual source of the upset. With
the cause of the upset handled, the person is once more able to live a
happy, healthy life.
