    Hmmn. Is that an Arian/Homo Novis cover pic?

    So what ever happened to the "pro and con" followup in the later editions?

    Could be worked into some great picket signage, like, erm, 'LRon the Con~ Crazy as a thousand Battlefields!' Hell, it stands on its own too! (t-shirt anyone?)

    Ah, the reveries of 1950: When Dianetics was in full bloom | The Underground Bunker

    By Jeffrey Augustine, May 6, 2017


    Let’s start with a fun piece from October 1950:


    Eleanor Dove writhes in a Dianetics reverie while a photographer from the St. Louis Post-Dispatch photographs her ecstatic swoon. Under the control of a Dianetics auditor, Eleanor is re-experiencing engrams lodged in her reactive mind during a public demonstration.

    In the next demonstration we witness Thea Van Runkele being Dianetically processed during a two-hour ordeal. Her “professional auditor” is her husband and fellow Dianeticist Larry Van Runkele.


    During Thea’s trip back into childhood and into the “basic-basic” prenatal engrams she received in the womb, she too writhes in the agony of what surely must be the unspeakable things done to her as a fetus. Perhaps, as described in the pages of Dianetics, mother got out the knitting needles?
