It started and ended with aliens.

Astounding Science Fiction, May, 1950

May, 1950 cover of Astounding Science fiction shows a glaring alien.  This is the launching of the new science of the mind, Dianetics.  It is fitting that Hubbard should start with the picture of an alien because that is where, for all intents and purposes, he ended up.  Only in OT III instead of an alien on the cover of a magazine you find out that they cover your skin.   This is a lot more than many Scientologist can handle, I have heard a number of stories of yelling and screaming, even rolling on the floor.
