These were all over early Turner based basic cable.

I read this once, just to see what the fuss was about.
It was basically a ripoff of a lot of other self-help books, with just enough changed so as not to seem like plagiarism.
The volcano's not anywhere in the book. That's some Scientology/Xenu stuff. That came later.
Hubbardâ€™s contributions are high-sounding gobbledygook terminology that must be mastered to proceed into his thought hole. Itâ€™s part of the brainwashing, you can only pass through the next steps once youâ€™ve agreed to play by his rules. By that point youâ€™ve sunk money into this, youâ€™re getting love-bombed, and you probably are adopting common sense budgeting and mental note taking skills, which you donâ€™t need Scientology for, but if you are playing along to this point theyâ€™ve got you. The next step is your Purification Rundown where you get your low-protein, chemically induced brain fog that makes you think youâ€™re overcoming supernatural problems, and sure enough, you feel better after it because the niacin sickness was unlike any other illness youâ€™ve had. Congratulations, youâ€™re now in a cult, enjoy your stay.

That synth arpeggio really stayed with me, I never forgot it. For some reason, it came back to me with a jolt when I first heard Boards of Canada's BOC Maxima (Bocuma). The arpeggios are actually quite different, but the Boards of Canada was reaching for a sentiment and an aesthetic that related closely to the time and technology relayed by the Dianetics ad.
