Life Positive of India Talks about Dianetics

This article describes the research L. Ron Hubbard did into Dianetics as follows: "The seeds of Dianetics were planted in the mind of its creator, explorer-thinker-author L. Ron Hubbard, by a series of cytological experiments he conducted in 1937. These experiments demonstrated that the urge to survive overrode every other possible life-enhancing drive, and was actually an inherited urge that remained potent even as a learned response.

"This apparently academic discovery put a whole new spin to the then current (and still fairly popular) theory that life is nothing more than a game of chance. Unlike Darwin's theory of evolution, which gave importance to survival only to the extent of natural selection, Hubbard postulated that the command to survive comes from an 'intelligence' behind the scheme of life. In his work Excalibur, often considered the precursor to Dianetics, Hubbard writes: 'All life is directed by one command and one command only—SURVIVE!'"
