Another Secret Lives leak: L. Ron Hubbard enjoyed humiliating people under hypnosis

Arthur_Jean_Cox-300x189.jpgWhile we’ve been bowled over by the response to Alex Gibney’s film ‘Going Clear’ — and it’s only going to get more intense as its HBO air date of March 16 nears — we’re still in the process here at the Underground Bunker of releasing rare video from another Scientology documentary altogether.

Today, we have our third leak of original, raw footage from Channel 4’s excellent 1997 program, Secret Lives — L. Ron Hubbard.

The movie contains short clips from numerous people who knew Hubbard, but now a source is releasing to us the full interviews with these participants for the first time. We’ve already heard from Hubbard’s literary agent, Forrest Ackerman, and his press assistant and lover, Barbara Klowden, and today we hear from one of Hubbard’s fellow science fiction colleagues, Arthur Jean Cox.

Cox describes meeting Hubbard for the first time in 1947, when Hubbard was already a big name. But asked to describe what Hubbard was like, Cox says it was pretty obvious that he was “putting people on.”

Hubbard said that in 1938, during a dental procedure with nitrous oxide, he’d “died” for eight minutes, and had experienced visions of the world’s philosophies and eternal truths. He used that vision to write a book he called “Excalibur.” Four of the readers at publishing houses that had read the manuscript had gone insane, Hubbard claimed. So Hubbard locked the manuscript in a bank vault. Later, when Hubbard came out with Dianetics in 1950, he said it was based on only one chapter of “Excalibur.”

Like Ackerman, Cox said that knowing Hubbard in those days meant being a part of his hypnotism act. Cox says Hubbard was unable to hypnotize him, and Cox quickly grew impatient with the humiliating things Hubbard put others through under hypnosis.

Cox also remembers that in 1948, Hubbard had gotten into trouble for writing a bad check, and so the science fiction writer wouldn’t let himself be photographed for a while.

Another science fiction writer in their circle, a big name who became an early Dianetics champion, was A.E. Van Vogt, Cox remembers. Van Vogt was a fan of Hubbard’s “science of the mind,” but Cox also remembers “Van” complaining that Hubbard was sleeping with the wives of the men in their circle.

Van Vogt and Cox were present in August 1950, when Hubbard held an event at the Shrine Auditorium to present the world’s first Clear, a woman named Sonia Bianca.

The event started out, Cox remembered, with Van Vogt and Hubbard on stage, making claims for Dianetics. They then brought out Sonia, who was a student at an eastern college. Hubbard announced that because of her Dianetics training, she now had perfect recall, but a few questions later and it became obvious that the woman had no better memory than average. The event was a bust, and Hubbard wouldn’t announce another “Clear” for 16 years.

Cox relates more memories of Hubbard and hypnotism, and he says he found it distasteful the way Hubbard used his stage tricks to make people miserable.

“He was not reluctant to humiliate people just to demonstrate his power over them,” Cox says.

Watch it for yourself and let us know what sticks out to you…
