In the early days of the Borderland Sciences Research Associates, Meade Layne worked closely with the scholar of Polynesian mysticism (and sometime BSRA co-director) Max Freedom Long, dedicating extensive Round Robin coverage to Long's pamphlets and articles on Huna. One of the first featured pamphlets, reproduced in an abridged format across four or five issues in 1946, was called "Huna - The Workable Psycho-Religious System of the Polynesians", and it offers a simple introduction to the studies of Max Long and his colleagues, explaining "in fairly general terms a part of the basic theory [of Huna] and its methods of application." In the pamphlet (and in later books), Long claimed to have uncovered the ancient knowledge of the na kahuna, clues to which had "come largely through a study of the meanings of the roots of the Hawaiian words", and proposed that by using the knowledge, he could now link the kahuna's powers of fire-walking, healing by touch, and other sacred wisdoms to the psycho-spiritual model of the day - "Huna worked for na kahuna. It should work for us."
