Volume 6 - The Discovery of the Theta Universe
In this volume, Ron shares his initial breakthroughs on the subject of past lives, the genetic line and the theta line, and reveals the existence of theta as the source of life itself. Contains thirty-six lectures given between December 20th 1950 and August 6th 1951.
Converting Pain To Happiness And Sanity
An article by L. Ron Hubbard – R&D Volume 6
Now, it happens that there are many ways to describe Dianetics to somebody who walks up to you suddenly and says, “Dianetics? What is that?” and you say to them, “It's—uh, well…” don't do that because it makes you look unsure. Have a good, fast definition.
“Dianetics? Why, Dianetics is a method of erasing all the pain out of a person's lifetime. You can understand that if a person had had no pain in his lifetime, he'd be a fairly happy person, wouldn't he?” And they agree.
And you say, “Well, in Dianetics you just erase all the pain out of his lifetime and he's well.”
And it's very interesting but that's a very convincing definition; that's actually what you're doing, although I prefer to think of it actually in terms—very simple terms—you can convert the pain of a lifetime to happiness and sanity. Now, that sounds like bluebirds or something. It's one of those little bit too pollyannish definitions, but that's actually what you are doing, after all.
If you start converting the pain and the anguish of a person's life to useful, forceful thought, you are doing a great deal for him.

LRH Radio Broadcasts Released For The First Time
(click image to read)
In February of 1951, LRH gave a series of famous Radio Broadcast Lectures on Dianetics basics and their application. They cover a wide range of topics, and for the first time ever, these lectures have been published and are only found in R&D Volume 6. The titles include:
- How to Straighten Out a Group
- Husbands and Wives Auditing Each Other
- Communication Breaks
- Valences and Straight Memory
- Grief and Valences
- The Tone Scale of Groups and Nations
Here is a short excerpt from the lecture “The Tone Scale of Groups and Nations,” to give you an idea of the data covered:
“If we knew how to predict the course of a nation, if we knew exactly how to tell what was going to happen to that nation or what form of government it would next take, it would be a very handy thing to have around. One would be able to take steps to keep that nation from going into totalitarianism or into the messianic state of apathy. One does not wait for a person to die before he treats him.” – LRH

Theta-MEST Theory & Human Evaluation
“What I am going to describe to you tonight—the basic theory that underlies this. The basic theory is called the theta-MEST theory.” – LRH

Volume 6 contains the entire chronological development of the Theta-MEST theory and the Hubbard Chart of Human Evaluation… two subjects you need to master to the very core of your being!
First, you will read the very first lectures given to students at the new Foundation headquarters in Wichita, Kansas. They were the first to hear about the Theta-MEST theory in the four lectures that followed which currently available in The Basics on compact disc).
Then, a few weeks later Ron delivered the First Annual Conference of Hubbard Dianetic Auditors and released Science of Survival in manuscript form to all those in attendance. All eleven lectures revolved around the use of the book and its principles, as an auditor and in life. Check the lecture list to find the exact titles.
And finally the book was released in hardcover format a few weeks later and covered in even more detail in his Professional Course Lectures of July 1951.
And now you can study ALL of the LRH data on the research and development of these two subjects… only in R&D Volume 6.
LRH's Message On The First Anniversary of DMSMH
(click image to enlarge)
“We have gone over the first few hills, and somehow or other we have made the grade with a minimum number of casualties…” – LRH
Read a very personal and touching account of LRH speaking on the very first anniversary of Dianetics in May 1951.
Though keeping up with a heavy schedule of lecturing, research and writing at the Foundation's Wichita offices, Ron made time to record a special message for a celebration of Dianetics: The Modern Science of Mental Health's first anniversary held by New York Dianeticists.
Not only does LRH give insights into his personal life at the time of the lecture, he also gives an outline and summary of the advancements made to date on Dianetics and the direction it was going in.
These are one of the many gems you will only find in the Research & Discovery Series…
