STUDY TECHNOLOGY: EFFECTIVE LEARNING AND EDUCATION
A TECHNOLOGY TO INCREASE COMPREHENSION
In the years following L. Ron Hubbards breakthrough on the importance of the misunderstood word, he developed a considerable body of technology which enables one to deal with the misunderstood words or symbols he encounters.
The relay of ideas from one mind to another mind or minds depends upon words, symbols, sounds, pictures, emotions and past associations. Primary among these, in any developed culture, are words. These can be written or spoken. While whole subjects exist concerning the development and meaning of words, many of them very learned and worthwhile, practically no work was ever done on the effect of words or the consequences of their misuse or noncomprehension.
What was not studied or known before L. Ron Hubbards development of study technology is that the flow of ideas in any message or field of learning can be blocked in such a way as to suppress further understanding or comprehension from that point forward. Further, the misunderstood word can even act in such a way as to bring about ignorance, apathy and revolt in the classroom and in the workplace depress productivity.
Not only did these factors remain undiscovered before Scientology, but also, of course, no technology existed to remedy the problem.
