Scientology Disinformation Series



Josef Breuer and Sigmund Freud proposed the existence of a conscious mind and a subconscious mind.

L. Ron Hubbard called them the Analytical Mind and the Reactive Mind.

Man is conscious in his analytical mind.

The analytical mind… thinks in differences and similarities.

Dianetics, Modern Science of Mental Health by L. Ron Hubbard

…the analytical mind is kind of a misnomer because most people think it’s some kind of computing machine, and it’s not, it’s just the pc, the thetan.

Definition of Analytical Mind in the Scientology Technical Dictionary

The reactive mind acts below the level of consciousness.

…once known as the “unconscious mind”….

…which contains within itself a total identification of all things with all things…

Definition of Reactive Mind in the Scientology Technical Dictionary

The reactive mind… thinks only in identities.

…the reactive mind does not reason, it thinks in identities…

Dianetics, Modern Science of Mental Health by L. Ron Hubbard

* * *

Now I will show you there is no such thing as a Reactive Mind.

In 1926 Robert Collier wrote a bookThe Secret of The Ages. It sold 300,000 copies.

Some quotes from that book, Collier quoting someone else in his book are noted and sourced –

The Conscious Mind

It is the phase of mind with which you feel and reason…


The Subconcious Mind

[In the below, Collier quotes Rev. William T Walsh, Rector of St. Luke’s Church, New York City, in his book “Scientific Spiritual Healing.”]

The subconscious mind directs all the vital processes of your body.

[In the below, Collier quotes Dr. Geo. C. Pitzer]

The subconscious mind is a distinct entity. …it has absolute control over all the functions… of the body. Nutrition, waste, all secretions and excretions, the action of the heart in the circulation of the blood, the lungs in respiration or breathing, and all cell life, cell changes and development, are positively under the complete control of the subconscious mind.

We call this the ‘soul mind.’ It is the living soul.

[In the below, Collier quotes Rev. William T Walsh, Rector of St. Luke’s Church, New York City, in his book “Scientific Spiritual Healing.”]

…the subconscious does not reason and judge.

The Secret of The Ages by Robert Collier, a full PDF is here.

Some religions say there are two Beings inhabiting the same body and they make a distinction between them by calling them the spirit and the soul.

Scientology makes this distinction, calling them the Thetan and the genetic entity.
The Thetan (you) = the Analytical Mind.  The genetic entity = the Reactive Mind.

But the reactive mind… consists of the ridges of the GE, in the main, and they’re the body ridges. And the body itself actually is this reactive mind.

So there’s the GE as an identity. If you ask him to reason, in any other way than stimulus-response, he’s lost. 

Anatomy of Processing Energy… an LRH lecture 3 December 1952

So now we know the Analytical Mind is a Being (you).

So now we know the Reactive Mind is a Being (the genetic entity).

Makes sense. Only a Being can make a thought.

Here is what is wrong with what is being said.

They claim that the “Reactive Mind Being” cannot see differences or reason! They say the only way this Being thinks is that everything is the same. A car is the same as a man, a house is the same as a boat, a car a man a house and a boat are the same as a cactus, etc. There are no differences, everything is the same thing.

There is no Being anywhere in all of existence who cannot see differences.

There is no Being anywhere in all of existence who only thinks all is the same.

The analytical mind is incapable of error…

Dianetics, Modern Science of Mental Health by L. Ron Hubbard

The book Science of Survival presents the idea of a tone scale.

4.0 – Enthusiasm
3.0 – Conservatism
2.5 – Boredom
2.0 – Antagonism
1.5 – Anger
1.0 – Fear
0.5 – Grief
0.05 – Apathy

…the tone scale divides at 2.0.

Above this point the direction of dynamic action of the organism is toward survival.

From 2.0 to 4.0 we have the band of operation of the analytical mind.

Below 2.0, the dynamic action of the organism tends toward succumb.

People below the 2.0 level… will bring death or injury to persons, things, and organizations…

From 0.0 to 2.0 we have the band of operation of the reactive mind. Between these points on the tone scale, the reactive mind is in command of the organism.

Science of Survival by L. Ron Hubbard

What? The Genetic Entity is in control of the body from 0.0 to 2.0 ? It wasn’t me…

And where were you then? Did you go on vacation or cease to exist?

Imagine if someone tried to say that in court: “Your honor, I had nothing to do with murdering that man.
My reactive mind murdered that man and I was not anywhere around when he did it.”

full out laughingpound tthe ground laughing

So, all the time the reactive mind is running around raping and stealing and plundering and murdering –
little innocent you who is incapable of error, you just sit there and watch the GE do it?

Please stop, my sides are splitting with laughter. Hubbard should have been a comedian.


The Dynamic Principle of Existence is Survive!

Dianetics, Modern Science of Mental Health by L. Ron Hubbard

L. Ron Hubbard claims he discovered the dynamic principle of existence – survive.

In actuality, he got the idea from The Secret of The Ages by Robert Collier.

This is the greatest discovery of modern times—that every man can call upon this “Life Principle” at will…

The Purpose of Existence

…the whole purpose of existence is GROWTH. Life is dynamicnot static. It is ever moving forward – not standing still.

The “Life Principle” is your principle. To survive, to win through, to triumphantly surmount all obstacles has been its everyday practice since the beginning of time. You have but to supply the urge, to work in harmony with it, to get from it anything you may need.

The Secret of The Ages by Robert Collier, a full PDF is here.


The goal of life can be considered to be infinite survival. Man, as a life form, can be demonstrated to obey in all his actions and purposes the one command: SURVIVE!

It is not a new thought that man is surviving. It is a new thought that man is motivated only by survival.  ….survival was isolated as the only dynamic of a life form which would explain all its activities…

Dianetics, Modern Science of Mental Health by L. Ron Hubbard

One of the lies of Dianetics is that life forms are only motivated by the urge to survive.
According to Hubbard, all things fall below survival, including ethics and aesthetics.

So, if I love someone and therefore I do something nice for them, I was not motivated by love, I only did that because of survival. If I paint a pretty picture for enjoyment by self and others, I only did that because of survival. If I do a correct action, I did not do it because it was the correct thing to do, I only did it because of survival.
We are not good because we are good, we are only being good to obtain survival!

The idea that survival is our senior and only motivation, is ridiculous.

One should ask why a Being has a life form or why does he want a life form to survive. The various reasons for those things are his motivations. He is not interested in having a life form survive for no reason, or in having it survive just for the sake of survival.

A person has numerous reasons for doing things, and his reasons are not limited to just an urge towards survival, and survival is not senior to everything.

scientology_disinfo_6You have to be “armed with the tech” to traverse the Bridge


In 1922, a British Mason, Walter Leslie Wilmshurt, wrote The Meaning of Masonry.

Here are some quotes from that book –

Masonry is… expression of the difficult science of spirit life…

It is the immortal soul of man which… needs to be rebuilt upon the principles of spiritual science.

…human personality is distributed into a passive negative subconsciousness and an active positive intelligence…

Preliminary purification of the mind is essential to its rising to purer realms of being and loftier conscious states than it has been accustomed to.

The work of the Second Degree is… involving deep psychological self-analysis…

… the mind is free to become introverted and work exploratively upon its own ground, to search the contents of its own unplumbed depths, to probe deeper and deeper into itself, eradicating defects and removing rubble…

This restoration … required the application of an orderly and scientific method to effect the restoration of each fallen soul-fragment… Unable to effect its own recovery it required skilled scientific assistance from other sources to bring about its restoration.

The Meaning of Masonry by Walter Leslie Wilmshurt

That false idea that a person cannot recover without skilled scientific assistance from another person,
is also stated in Scientology…

Auditor plus pc is greater than the bank
Pc minus auditor is less than the bank

(By “bank” is meant the mental image picture collection of the pc.)

– HCOB 30 April 1969 Auditor Trust, by L. Ron Hubbard

That false statement says a person cannot handle the mental pictures he makes without auditor assistance.

It says a person is inferior to his creations!

That’s certainly giggle-worthy


The truth isa person is never inferior to his creations.

The senior party in an auditing session is the person receiving the auditing. It is his say-so that determines the outcome of the auditing. Without that, an auditor and his tech cannot accomplish anything. The person himself determines what he thinks, not an auditor or anyone else.

Let’s say he beats kids.

Scientology offers him many reasons, outside of himself, as to why he beats up kids.

He has an engram, he has implants, etc. So, an engram says to beat kids. The person has to decide to go along with that idea before he would take the action of beating a kid.

All of these alleged outside reasons, are totally dependent on the guy deciding.

He can decide to beat kids and he can decide to not beat kids. It all depends on him.

In February 1990, Michael Pattinson completed OT VIII. His homosexuality appeared resolved until 2 months later when the urge returned. He had spent $500,000.00 doing Scientology. There is a classic example of how the tech does not really work, you work.

Therapies have no power to make a change for you.

It is not the auditor and his tech that is senior – it is the person himself and his say so.

You have all the power. You making a decision is the only thing that works.

And you do not need therapy to make a decision.

You are the answer to you, and you don’t need any system.


Life is basically a static. A life static has no mass, no motion, no wavelength, no location in space or in time.

– Scientology Axiom 1

L. Ron Hubbard was not the originator of that idea. That idea was already expressed in Brothers of Light religion.

Now everything that is moved, is moved, not in or by that which is moved, but in that which standeth or resteth…  

What a ridiculous thing it were, that the Nurse of all things should be unmovable, which beareth and bringeth forth all things.

the Fire is nowhere.  

The One and Only… that is not of Matter, that is not in a body, that is without Colour, without Figure or Shape, …which always is…

– The Corpus Hermeticum

Thomas Edison was a member of the Society for Psychical Research. He submitted an article to Scientific American magazine in October 1920.

…I cannot conceive of such a thing as a spirit. Imagine something that has no weight, no material form, no mass; in a word, imagine nothing!

– an article submitted by Thomas Edison to Scientific American October, 1920

In 1922, a British Mason, Walter Leslie Wilmshurt, wrote The Meaning of Masonry.

He is able to discern that it was himself who at first was “without form and void”…

The Meaning of Masonry by Walter Leslie Wilmshurt (1922)


Insanity is the overt or covert but always complex and continuous determination to harm or destroy.

– HCOB 28 November 1970  Psychosis by L. Ron Hubbard

That is not a proper definition for insanity, because it makes no evaluation as to what is being continuously harmed or destroyed by the person.

A man is not insane who continuously attacks and destroys evil things, such as slavery; such as harmful lies put out by religions, public relations firms, etc.

So-called “insanity” is basically an act, a show. People know right from wrong and those pretending to not know the difference, are doing exactly that – pretending.

Any person can correct his wrong ideas and actions at any time, whenever he decides to.


The subject of philosophy is very ancient.

For long regarded as a subject reserved for halls of learning and the intellectual, the subject, to a remarkable degree, has been denied the man in the street.

…philosophy has been reserved to the privileged few.

 The first principle of my own philosophy is that wisdom is meant for anyone who wishes to reach for it.

 …I saw man obsessed with materiality and with all his cunning; I saw him hide what little wisdom he really had in forbidding halls and make it inaccessible to the common and less favored man.

 …falsehood must be exposed by truth, and truth, though fought, always in the end prevails.

– My Philosophy by L. Ron Hubbard

Here we have more flowery words that are disinformation. Over half of the Scientology bridge is made secret, and the only way you get to have it is to first pay exorbitant prices. Those who have about $300,000 to spare may have it – the privileged few.

Scientology has the stated goal to “Clear the planet”. Scientology prices bar out average income people,
only the wealthy can afford services. This shows it is about making money, not Clearing the planet.

Those who left the Church and started their own groups, charging considerably less money, were severely attacked. Hubbard ordered the groups and individuals destroyed. He wanted a monopoly and money more
than he wanted to “Clear the Planet”. A “Cleared Planet” is not worth having unless you paid Hubbard for it.

As for truth, if you point out that Ron Hubbard lied when he said he received less pay than staff members, he lied when he said a Clear can remember everything he studied, or any one of his numerous other lies –
you will be expelled and viciously attacked.

Scientology is not a road to truth. Even though Scientologists fight against truth about Scientology being revealed,
they are fighting a losing battle, because truth will out.

No ability is ever lost anyplace.  You have at this moment every ability that you are willing to exert. 

Processes an LRH lecture 28 April 1959


But they don’t do a gradient of their own ability because their own ability is never in question! It’s all there a hundred percent, their own ability is, and has never waned…

The Rule Of The Weak Valence an LRH lecture 12 November 1959

You still have all of your abilities so there is no point to paying Scientology to get them.

This is like paying someone for a car you already own.

If you want to gain proficiency at your abilities, find someone to practice with for free.


Many slavemasters think that life is nothing more than continual conflicts.

This slavemaster mentality appears in Scientology as “Life is a game.”

Life is a game.

Games occur only when there is intention opposing intention, purpose opposing purpose.

The Fundamentals of Thought by L. Ron Hubbard

There are many more complicated factors involved in games… Primary amongst these is the necessity in a game to have an opponent or an enemy.

The Problems of Work by L. Ron Hubbard

* * *

That is a false idea that life is a game. Games are only part of life, there’s more to life.

There is a far better way to live that is more fun than competitions and conflicts –


living in harmony


Here are a few video clips to illustrate the point…
