What makes Dianetics so different to other Practices

An interesting article by Thomas Lechner on WorldWideHealth.com on Dianetics states:
Prior to 1950, planetwide the scientific thought was the conclusion, that our mind would be the brain, i.e., a collection of cells and neurons, and nothing more. Not only was it considered that our individual abilities could never be improved, but also scientists believed that with the strucuture of the human body, our personality was likewise irrevocably established. These theories were, however, inaccurate, and as a consequence scientists never found a workable theory about the mind, nor a means to resolve the problems of the mind and also never asking for, what is the soul.

L.Ron Hubbard changed all that with Dianetics: The Modern Science Of Mental Health. Its publication in 1950 marks a watershed in the history of man’s quest for a true understanding of himself. Dianetics is a methadology which can help alleviate unwanted sensations and emotions, irrational fears and psychosomatic illnesses (illness caused or aggravated by mental stress). It is most accurately described as, what is the soul doing to the body through the mind.
