-the dianetic foundation was sold back to hubbard in the late -50's/early 60's... oops... make that 1954. it seems purcell gave up -the fight and sold/gave the copyrights and mailing lists back to -hubbard so he could devote his time to sworking on synergetics, an -offshoot of dianetics. Sorry to correct you, here, but Synergetics and Synergetics 2 were both written by R. Buckminster Fuller. They are geometry texts based on basic operational principles of the universe. They are difficult to understand, and have some deep philosophy/ideas, agreed, but they aren't L. Ron.

perhaps there are two synergetic groups.

while i have not actually gone out and attempted to find for myself what group purcell started (perhaps i should) i am quite sure that my source lists the group as synergetics.

if anyone wants to check my source, russell miller -- bare-faced messiah. look up hubbard dianetic foundation in the index. it should be the last page number listed.
