I've been reading a book, "Why People Believe Weird Things." One of the things he talks about is how, today, science is more important than, say, mythology. And yet we have people who believe all sorts of strange things. He noted how these new age beliefs refer to themselves in pseudo-scientific terms to make themselves sound more like they are real science. But they aren't.
I don't know anything specifically - couldn't find anything much on a quick look - so I don't know if it's more serious with this group, but it sounds to me like L Ron Hubbard and his Scientology - another non-science operation!
