It could be said that man exists in a partially hypnotized state. He believes in other-determinism in many things, to his detriment. (Other-determinism is the condition of having ones actions or conclusions determined by something or someone other than oneself.) He will be as well as he is self-determined (able to control and determine the actions of self). The processes of Scientology could be described as methods of unhypnotizing men to their own freer choice and better life.
