Returning to Dublin, Ireland, L. Ron Hubbard researched and developed the exact steps and actions a person should follow to establish a successful Scientology mission anywhere in the world.

He also wrote a book containing simple but powerful precepts that allow anyone improve their life immediately.

In Barcelona, Spain, he conducted additional research, then returned to Washington, DC, where he delivered a series of lectures covering a person's spiritual and material requirements.

He then sailed back to England aboard the "Queen Elizabeth", during which time he wrote a book providing solutions to day-to-day job stress.

After delivering 12 lectures on human problems in London, England, he again returned to Washington, DC.

While delivering more than 130 lectures, detailing solutions to such problems as environmental radiation and the failings of groups, L. Ron Hubbard also ran both the new Washington and London Scientology organizations. During this year, he also found the time to write two more books: Scientology: The Fundamentals of Thought and The Problems of Work.

London Auditors Meeting ("The Remedy of Havingness"): December 1955 - February 1956

Having completed the 4th London ACC and the Rehabilitating Power of Choice Professional Course, L. Ron Hubbard scarcely paused in his program to enhance auditor skill. Its next phase was hands-on training on the latest processes, concurrently sending auditors into the field to sharpen their skills. Known as the London Auditors Meeting lectures, here is the development of the most fundamental processes later contained in the book, Scientology: The Fundamentals of Thought—processes to begin the cycle of clearing in any zone. They embrace everything from two-way communication—in particular the most broadly workable technique for a low-level case—to an entire lecture on matching auditing to tone. Here, too, is a definition of havingness in terms of postulates, the relationship of havingness to cognitions and the difference between repair and remedy of havingness. While toward even broader understanding, Mr. Hubbard defined processing as the means to improve the ability to play a game. Moreover, to further equip auditors, he provided the know-how of dissemination, teaching three proven methods for procuring new preclears. Here, then, are the basic and powerful truths on how to increase a being’s ability to create the joy of a true game.

Hubbard Professional Course - "Application of Games Theory": February 1956

With the elements of games emerging as a fundamental of auditing, L. Ron Hubbard initiated a very special Professional Course. Whereas he had outlined the theory of games and its application in the Remedy of Havingness—Why Games lectures, he now undertook to instruct students on the exact Application of Games Theory to Processing. Here are the three factors that underlie the phenomenon of being “stuck in a win.” Here, too, is his in‑depth explanation of a no‑game condition. Further, and toward application of specific processes, three lectures are devoted to Six Levels of Processing. This lecture series, recording many of the advances that form the substance of Scientology: The Fundamentals of Thought, contains technology so important it would then take its place as a central component of standard auditing. And for a final summary of what that represented, it was no less than the means to restore to beings control of their own destiny. For as Mr. Hubbard told auditors: “You’re the expert in awareness. And you use that awareness to get him aware of barriers and aware of freedom. And if you do that perfectly, you win. And that is the game of auditing.”

The Professional Course Lectures - August 1956

While Fundamentals of Thought stands as an introduction to the subject for beginners, it also contains a distillation of fundamentals for every Scientologist. Here are the in-depth descriptions of those fundamentals, each lecture one-half hour in length and providing, one-by-one, a complete mastery of a single Scientology breakthrough—Axioms 1–10; The Anatomy of Control; Handling of Problems; Start, Change and Stop; Confusion and Stable Data; Exteriorization; Valences and more—the why behind them, how they came to be and their mechanics. And it’s all brought together with the Code of a Scientologist, point by point, and its use in actually creating a new civilization. In short, here are the lectures that make a Professional Scientologist—one who can apply the subject to every aspect of life.

Games Congress Lectures: August - September 1956

What is life? From holiest of temples to everyday streets, it is a question long asked, but never answered. In this Congress, L. Ron Hubbard presents the surprising resolution—all stemming from his groundbreaking research into a subject deceptively irrelevant at first glance, but factually embracing the whole of existence— Life is a game! For notwithstanding the slings and arrows of life, the reason for living and the reason for a game are the same. And whether baseball, polo or chess—by studying the elements of games, we find ourselves in possession of the elements of life. Here, then, are the components: freedom, barriers and purposes, and the exact factors determining a “game” and a “no-game condition.” He further details the four types of games—including those the being doesn’t know he’s playing—the basis of all aberration. Through lecture after lecture Mr. Hubbard lays out the application of games principles to all life—from individuals, groups and societies to revelations on why a thetan loves problems and, hence, the approach in auditing to not only improve one’s ability to play the game, but to achieve truth itself. So groundbreaking were these discoveries, they also formed the very core of what else L. Ron Hubbard released at this Congress: Scientology: The Fundamentals of Thought—a book he forevermore called, “Book One of Scientology.”

The London Congress on Human Problems - October 1956

Before the first lecture has finished, you will discover precisely where Man went astray in all previous quests for truth, and gain the overriding viewpoint of an effective Scientologist: looking not inward but outward to the world … and handling others. For this is the Congress that signaled the advance of technology to a breadth of uses across all dynamics and all human problems—from personal to global. Beginning with that “almost mystic” quality of a thetan, the ability to grant life, L. Ron Hubbard lays out application after application of Scientology principles to virtually every type of human activity—from educating youth, to training of workers and even causative means to handle the mounting threat of nuclear weapons. While to provide the means for every Scientologist to make a difference, he unveiled the Personnel Efficiency Course.Describing it as “Man’s brightest hope,” he demonstrates how even a tiny amount of Scientology can transform entire zones of living—rapidly and easily. Here, then, is the definitive Congress on bringing Scientology answers everywhere, including the release of The Problems of Work: Scientology Applied to the Workaday World—and the use of that book by Scientologists to help the everyday worker, to problems of a whole society and the means to revive an entire nation to its previous glory.

15th Advanced Clinical Course - October - November 1956

With war threatening between the “great powers,” L. Ron Hubbard had just delivered the London Congress on Human Problems. There he had introduced the introductory service, the Personnel Efficiency Course, and had announced The Problems of Work as the course text. In his opening lecture, he conveyed both urgency and need: “Our mission, to a large degree, is an educational mission. And we have just recently learned that we have, contained in our subjects, the entirety of education.” Here, in the 15th ACC, is where he taught the application of simplicity, demonstrating its universal power whether in auditing, education or planetary dissemination. He trained auditors not only on how to audit, but how to communicate data and how to educate, introducing the precursors of Study Technology—Learning Processes—that sliced through complexities like a knife through butter. And given auditors would need organizational know‑how, they concurrently attended evening lectures for instruction on running Scientology groups—a series renowned today as Washington Lectures: Organization and Personnel Efficiency. In sum, Mr. Hubbard had taken a giant stride in outreach, and with ACC students primed for action on the front lines, he declared the 15th American ACC the most successful ever.

The Organizational Series Lectures - Washington D.C.: October - November 1956

Congress On Anti-Radiation And Confront Lectures Wash. DC: December 1956

The “Cold War” between America and Russia was heating up. And with world leaders demonstrating their “power” to each other, with ever increasing tests of nuclear bombs, they were also creating consequences they couldn’t conceive. For while a nuclear test in Russia may seem to have nothing to do with an auditing session in Florida, when L. Ron Hubbard discovered there was a link—he acted. That is, quite in addition to its obvious physical effects, radiation was slowing processing and clearing. Moreover, it wasn’t just in the geographic locale of nuclear tests, but virtually planetwide. What followed was the call for an “Emergency Congress,” in a location that couldn’t have been more appropriate—the Hall of Nations in Washington, DC, overlooking the White House itself. Whereupon Mr. Hubbard first unveiled his research to find any means of addressing the effects of radiation on the body and his discovery of startling effects of nicotinic acid (niacin). Here’s the full story of what he described as the “educated” vitamin, and the original breakthrough that underlies the technology of the Purification Rundown. Even more, here is the greater story of radiation as not just a present-day problem, but an aberrative factor in practically every incident on the whole track. From that revelation came a flood of breakthroughs applicable to virtually all of life—from the bottom-line solution to psychosis, to new technology for raising a being on the Sub-zero Tone Scale—capable of confronting anything. And that’s just a glimpse of what this Congress contains—bringing solutions to problems as old as time itself, and as current as today’s headlines.
