Containing discoveries hearalded as greater than the wheel or fire, Dianetics, first published in 1950, has remained a bestseller for more than 50 years. With a set of ideas and practices regarding the metaphysical relationship between the mind and body, author L. Ron Hubbard lists out his observations and reseant into life and the same is practices by followers of Scientology, rather religiously. Coining the word Dianetics from the Greek stems 'dia', meaning through, and 'nous', meaning mind, the author writes that he had isolated the ?dynamic principle od existence?, which he states as ?Survive?, and presents his description of the human mind. According to Hubbard, the source of 'human aberration? is the reactive mind?, a normally hidden but always conscious area of the mind and certain cellular recordings (?engrams?) stored in it. Dianetics descibes counselling (or ?auditing?) techniques which Hubbard claimed would get rid of engrams and bring major therapeutic benefits.
