What happened when an actual scientist of the mind checked out L. Ron Hubbard in 1950

Marvin_MinskyMarvin Minsky is a major figure in artificial intelligence — he founded MIT’s AI laboratory, and in 1951 he built the first neural network simulator. Which means that he was doing actual science of the mind when a certain pulp fiction writer was pretending that he’d made a discovery about the human mind that was “a milestone for Man comparable to his discovery of fire.”

Oh yeah? Well, Minsky describes the time he traveled down to L. Ron Hubbard’s foundation in Elizabeth, New Jersey around that time to see what Hubbard was actually up to.

One of our tipsters pointed out that Minsky described the visit recently in an MIT online course. We managed to snag the relevant segment from an hour-long lecture. We think you’ll find it interesting.

An actual email exchange.

[Emailed to the Underground Bunker]
Dear Sir/Madam,

Hello! My name is Carla Moxon and I am the Director of Public Activities here at Citizens Commission on Human Rights International (CCHR). I am also in charge of following up on requests for CCHR’s documentaries.

Recently you requested a complimentary copy of a free information kit from CCHR.

We are very interested in your feedback, so would you please take a few minutes to answer the following questions:

1. Have you received your DVD?

2. If so, what part/element of the documentary did you find most interesting?

3. After viewing the documentary, what actions do you consider are important to secure the rights of patients?

4. Is there anything else you would like us to know about the documentary?

Thank you very much for your time and information.

Carla Moxon
Director of Field Activities
CCHR International

[We don’t remember requesting an information kit, and we haven’t received a DVD. But here’s what we emailed back…]

Mainly, Carla, I’m wondering how you still have any position at all with a Scientology entity after you were named an unindicted co-conspirator in the prosecution of Scientology’s 1970s Snow White Program by the US Department of Justice after the largest infiltration of the US government in its history.

Sincerely looking forward to your explanation.

[Response? Crickets.]
