Origins of OT III, Sci-Fi in Hubbard’s Time

Thrilling Wonder Stories, December, 1948

As I have related in other posts I think the origins of the OT levels is easy to find.  One has to look no further than the science fiction of his day.  Of course nobody but a Scientologist would give credence to the Wall of Fire story in OT III and sometimes the cult members react violently to it.  Finding out that they are covered by a second skin composed of the spirits of dead aliens has made some of them fall to the floor and writhe as in pain.  Others became hysterical and shouted or cried.  A few, I don’t know how many but I do know of two for sure, closed the course book in disgust.  They knew they had been had.
