SCIENTOLOGY, 1. it is formed from the Latin word scio, which means know or distinguish, being related to the word scindo, which means cleave. (Thus, the idea of differentiation is strongly implied.) It is formed from the Greek word logos, which means THE WORD, or OUTWARD FORM BY WHICH THE INWARD THOUGHT IS EXPRESSED AND MADE KNOWN: also THE INWARD THOUGHT or REASON ITSELF. Thus, SCIENTOLOGY means KNOWING ABOUT KNOWING, or SCIENCE OF KNOWLEDGE. (Scn 8- 80, p. 8 ) 2. Scientology addresses the thetan. Scientology is used to increase spiritual freedom, intelligence, ability, and to produce immortality. (HCOB 22 Apr 69) 3. an organized body of scientific research knowledge concerning life, life sources and the mind and includes practices that improve the intelligence, state and conduct of persons. (HCOB 9 Jul 59) 4. a religious philosophy in its highest meaning as it brings man to total freedom and truth. (HCOB 18 Apr 67) 5. the science of knowing how to know answers. It is a wisdom in the tradition of ten thousand years of search in Asia and Western civilization. It is the science of human affairs which treats the livingness and beingness of man, and demonstrates to him a pathway to greater freedom. (COHA, p. 9) 6. an organization of the pertinencies which are mutually held true by all men in all times, and the development of technologies which demonstrate the existence of new phenomena not hitherto known, which are useful in creating states of beingness considered more desireable by man. (COHA, p. 9) 7. the science of knowing how to know. It is the science of knowing sciences. It seeks to embrace the sciences and humanities as a clarification of knowledge itself. Into all these things–biology, physics, psychology and life itself–the skills of Scientology can bring order and simplification. (Scn 8-8008, p. 11) 8. the study of the human spirit in its relationship to the physical universe and its living forms. (Abil 146) 9 . a science of life. It is the one thing senior to life because it handles all the factors of life. It contains the data necessary to live as a free being. A reality in Scientoloa is a reality on life. (Aud 27 UK) 1 0 . a body of knowledge which, when properly used, gives freedom and truth to the individual. (COHA, p. 251) 11.

SCIENTOLOGY, 1. the word Scientology is one which you might say is anglicized. It comes from the Latin Scio and the Greek Logos, with Scio the most emphatic statement of know we had in the Western world. And ology (from Logos) of course means “study of.” Scio is “knowing in the fullest sense of the word” and the Western world recognizes in it and in the word science something close to a truth. (PXT,, p. 1) 2. a religion in the oldest sense of the word, a study of wisdom. Scn is a study of man as a spirit in his relationship to life and the physical universe. It is non-denominational. By that is meant that Scn is open to people of all religions and beliefs and in no way tries to persuade a person from his religion, but assists him to better understand that he is a spiritual being. (BPL 6 Mar 69) 3. a religious practice applying to man’s spirit and his spiritual freedom (HCO PL 6 Apr 69) 4. the ability to change condition. The technology of how you change. (SH Spec 57, 6504CO6) 5. Scn as practiced by the Church of Scientology is a spiritual and religious guide intended to make persons more aware of themselves as spiritual beings restoring respect for self and others and not treating or diagnosing of human ailments of body or mind nor engaged in the teaching or practicing of the medical arts or sciences. (BPL 24 Sept 73RA XIII) 6. not the field of the human mind, Scn is the overall science which also includes the human mind. (541OC04) 7. Scn assumes that every man can be more able than he is and then goes ahead with very precise techniques to make him so. (551OC08) 8. the science of life. It teaches the fundamentals of life, the laws and basics of living. Our technology can be used to handle any condition that you find in life and if applied it will better those conditions. Scn is not some esoteric body of knowledge only to be used in the auditing room. It is something one can go out into the world with and use in all walks of life as well. It seems that this is a very broad and an amazing science but this is because Scn isolates and aligns the basic truths of life and life is everywhere. (BPL 21 Oct 71 I) Abbr. SCN.
