Scientology - OT
the so-called beliefs of Scientology matter
Scientology, the information contained in its confidential
is a closely guarded secret. Many people have paid hundreds
of thousands of dollars to reach these levels, only to discover
that had they known beforehand what these upper levels contained,
they would not have paid for them. Others claim that even
if they had known, they would have continued in Scientology.
In the interest of full disclosure, we feel that anyone considering
getting into Scientology should know what they can expect
for their money.
the lower levels of Scientology, new Scientologists are taught
to believe that the person or "pre clear's" behavior
and problems are caused by his "reactive mind."
The reactive mind is the term used by Scientologists to describe
a supposed force that causes a person to act irrationally
or against his own best interest.
seeks to convince a person that he needs to overcome his unknowing
obedience to this reactive mind and clear himself of its influence.A
person is promised that when he becomes "clear"
of his reactive mind, he will be free from mental and physical
reaching this much-touted "State of Clear," a Scientologist
is then indoctrinated to believe that by paying for a further
series of expensive "auditing" procedures, he will
eventually attain a state known as "Operating Thetan,"
or "OT." In Scientology, one is taught that there
is an entity, separate from the body, which is called a "thetan".
One is promised that when the state of OT is attained, one
will be able to fly around at will without one's body. One
will be in complete control, in fact, over the entire physical
universe of Matter, Energy, Space and Time.
OT levels are very secret in Scientology. People spend many
thousands of dollars, sometimes hundreds of thousands of dollars,
to get onto these OT levels that are supposed to enable one
to achieve such phenomenal abilities. No one has yet been
able to exhibit any of these so-called super-human abilities,
which on average cost USD 360,000, but many people are still
trying. Some have been on these upper levels for as long as
fifteen to twenty years.
most important secret of the upper levels is found on OT 3,
called the Wall of Fire in Scientology. It is on this level
that one learns the "secrets of the universe." One
learns Hubbard's so-called truth about why human beings are
so limited in their abilities, and what can be done to correct
this. Hubbard's "diagnosis" for the suffering and
insanity on this planet is the OT 3 incident - the "Fourth
Dynamic Engram" in Hubbardspeak. Many people characterize
this as the core belief of Scientology but it is not -- it
is in fact the entire CORE of Scientology.
is Hubbard's so-called factual and scientific truth that all
Scientologist's must not only accept as reality but experience
as reality: 75 million years ago, the galactic overlord for
this sector of the galaxy was called Xenu. He was in charge
of 76 planets, including Earth (at that time known as Teegeeack).
of the planets Xenu controlled were over-populated by, on
average, 178 billion people. Social problems dictated that
Xenu rid his sector of the galaxy of this overpopulation problem,
so he developed a plan.
sent out tax audit demands to all these trillions of people.
As each one entered the audit centers for the income tax inspections,
the people were seized, held down and injected with a mixture
of alcohol and glycol, and frozen. Then, all 13.5 trillion
of these frozen people were put into spaceships that looked
exactly like DC8 airplanes, except that the spaceships had
rocket engines instead of propellers.
entire fleet of DC8-like spaceships then flew to planet Earth,
where the frozen people were dumped in and around volcanoes
in the Canary Islands and the Hawaiian Islands. When Xenu's
Air Force had finished dumping the bodies into the volcanoes,
hydrogen bombs were dropped into the volcanoes and the frozen
space aliens were vaporized.
Xenu's plan involved setting up electronic traps in Teegeeack's
atmosphere which were designed to trap the souls or spirits
of the dead space aliens. When the 13.5 trillion spirits were
being blown around on the nuclear winds, the electronic traps
worked like a charm and captured all the souls in the electronic,
sticky fly-paper like traps.
spirits of the aliens were then taken to huge multiplex cinemas
that Xenu had previously instructed his forces to build on
Teegeeack. In these movie theaters the spirits had to spend
many days watching special 3-D movies, the purpose of which
was twofold: 1) to implant into these spirits a false reality,
i.e. the reality that WOGS (Hubbard's derisory term for anyone
not a Scientologists) know on Earth today; and, 2) to control
these spirits for all eternity so that they could never cause
trouble for Xenu in this sector of the Galaxy. During these
films, many false pictures and stories were implanted into
these spirits, which resulted in the spirits believing in
all the things that control mankind on Earth today, including
religion. The concept of religion, including God, Christ,
Mohammed, Moses etc., were all an implanted false reality
that to this very minute are used to control WOGS on Earth.
the films ended and the souls left the cinema, they started
to stick together in clusters of a few thousand and remained
that way until mankind began to inhabit the Earth. Today on
Earth all the spirits of these aliens have attached themselves
to our bodies and are the root cause of the false reality
that all but Scientology's "Homo Novis" or OT 8's
on earth experience. It is the job of all Scientologists to
remove this false reality from the world by auditing each
and every space alien spirit and human on earth and the entire
universe to CLEAR. For those who oppose Scientology and stand
in their way like the Lisa McPherson Trust and all Scientology
critics, Scientology promises to do away with them "quietly
and without sorrow".
have calculated that on average, each person on planet earth
has 2,209 of these Body Thetans (BT's for short), Hubbard's
term for the alien spirits, attached to you causing you to
be constrained by Xenu's false reality. The average cost for
Scientology to OT 8 is a mere USD 360,000, meaning that each
BT only costs USD 163 to clear. Now that is a bargain if there
ever was one.
never said the overall cost to the planet would be cheap,
but let's examine it. The planetary cost equation is as follows:
13.5 trillion spirits times USD 163 equals a mere USD 2,205,000,000,000,000.
Just think about it -- USD 2.2 quadrillion -- WOW!, that's
enough to keep Rear Admiral Miscavige, the current head of
Scientology and Marty Rathbun, his number two, in casino chips
for a long time.
finish the "factual" account, the Loyal Officers
of the Marcab Confederation finally discovered how evil Xenu
was and overthrew him. He is now locked away in a mountain
on one of the planets and kept in by a force-field powered
by an eternal battery. Several of Xenu's relatives can often
be found on the internet newsgroup called alt.religion.scientology
(or ARS for short) battling Scientology daily.
Scientologists who have left from the highest levels of Scientology
have told us that they have been in a room at Scientology's
Sandcastle building in Clearwater, Florida for 5-7 hours per
day for up to 15 years, holding two asparagus cans together,
attached to a primitive lie detector, talking all day to these
dead space aliens. And guess what? You'll never ever finish
talking to= dead space aliens until you leave Scientology.
we said, you are learning about this story in the interest
of full disclosure. If you become involved with Scientology
we want you to do so with your eyes open and fully aware of
the sort of material it contains. And, if you're in Scientology
you should know how you will be spending the rest of your
following comments were made by an ex-Scientology auditor
and Case Supervisor named Caroline Letkeman, who was highly
trained (Class IX) to administer the Scientology "technology"
on the Upper Levels of Scientology's Bridge, including OT3:
order for scn (Scientology) to "work" at the upper
levels, the person must accept the OT 3 incident as a literal
and factual matter. If the person does not experience the
fragmented condition as a "conscious and literal fact",
or if he cannot accept Hubbard's interpretation of the psychological
phenomena expected at this level, the person is labeled a
"bypassed case" and is sent back to redo his lower
levels. I.e., his psychological state must be such that he
can see his psychological complexes as external autonomous
entities, and he must
be able to literally address these entities with the exact
volcano story as given by Hubbard.
is no getting around this point technically--either the incident
is real and "processible" or the person has not
validly made his lower grades. According to the technical
materials of Scientology, there is no one on this earth who
has escaped the incident or who is immune to its effects.
That is why Hubbard labeled it as the "4th dynamic engram."
there is no further Bridge progress possible unless and until
the person can subjectively experience the required psychological
condition and its associated Hubbardian interpretation.
Scientologist at OT 3 is not addressed on the basis of his
"beliefs" about Hubbard's materials. He is handled
on the basis of Hubbard's "scientific" evaluation
of his literal psychological condition. If the psychological
condition of the person at OT 3 is not sufficiently fragmented
and projected outward, he will not be able to accept the OT
3 incident as given by Hubbard as a valid
interpretation of his condition.
Scientology publicly protests criticism of their "religious
beliefs" is itself dangerously misleading, in my opinion.
Hubbard did not characterize the OT 3 incident as a "belief"--he
taught it as a factual incident and as a scientifically researched
psychological explanation for the state that OT 3's find themselves
in at that level.
do not object to anyone, Scientologists included, believing
in alien cosmologies and practicing their truly held beliefs
or even accepting the "reality" of those inter-galactic
"events" as factual. We do have at least two problems,
however, with Scientology's deception about its alien space
Scientology lies when it says that it is compatible with all
other religious beliefs. It cannot be and is not compatible
with ANY religious belief since it clearly teaches that all
religion is an implanted false reality. In fact, any other
religious belief by a Scientologist is not even tolerated.
Talk about your faith in Christ or about prayer in an auditing
session and off to the Ethics Officer you will go for some
PTS ("Potential Trouble Source") handling because
you are indulging in "other practices". OT3, the
level when a Scientologist learns about the alien cosmology
and that religion is an implanted false reality, obviously
ends any possibility of further illusion that Scientology
can be compatible with ANY religious belief.
Scientology keeps its alien cosmology a secret for financial
reasons. A Scientologist is required to go through a gradual
progression of expensive steps before they are allowed to
learn about the alien cosmology. They are told if they learn
about it prematurely, it will create a life threatening situation
-- it will give them pneumonia and they might die. We know
of no reports of anyone ever getting pneumonia, much less
dying from exposure to Xenu and the alien story. Hiding the
truth about this space opera serves several functions, including,
a) recruitment -- few would join if they were told about the
alien beliefs up front; b) money -- holding back the information
buys time to collect more money from a recruit before the
colorful information is revealed; c) control -- holding back
the information allows Scientology to use the "tech"
to indoctrinate and induce a person not to bolt when they
do hear the alien story.
entire cover-up of this alien cosmology in Scientology is
all about deception, lies and money.
Lisa McPherson Trust's mission is to expose the abusive and
deceptive practices of Scientology and help those who have
been victimized by it. Clearly, the deception and lies surrounding
the alien cosmology is something we must stand up against.
Let me make this clear: it is not the alien cosmology itself
that we object to; it is the deception and lies surrounding
are all well aware that Hubbard wrote all the policies used
by Scientology management today which are at the heart of
the entire war that Scientology has declared on its critics.
Hubbard wrote the "Manual of Dissemination," for
example, in which he instructed his followers that the purpose
of a lawsuit is to harass, not to win. He also wrote the "Manual
of Justice," in which he says that a reporter who dares
to write anything critical about Scientology should be harassed
and intimidated until he shudders into silence. He also wrote
"Attacks on Scientology, Additional Policy Letter,"
in which he details how to destroy the reputation of anyone
who is critical of Scientology. There are many, many others,
including the vilest of Hubbard's policies, the "Fair
Game" policy which has been in continuous use by Scientology
since it was written in 1967. Current management is revising
these Hubbard policies for the reprints of the OEC and Tech
volumes for legal and PR reasons, because Miscavige and his
lawyers don't want the public to know how rabidly insane and
vindictive Hubbard really was. But these are Hubbard policies,
without any doubt. Current management continues to apply the
original versions of these directives, but do not delude yourself
that it was anyone but L. Ron Hubbard who wrote them.
have spent many hours with former Scientologists all over
the world and have never hidden our feelings about Hubbard.
To politely summarize those feelings, we think Hubbard was
a sinister con man and believe that the vast majority of people
who know anything about him share this view. While Miscavige
may be seen as a monster, he is merely a proxy for carrying
out the evil policies of L. Ron Hubbard. Miscavige is definitely
not "misapplying" the evil parts of Hubbard's tech
-- we believe he is using them just as Hubbard intended.
we believe the creed of Scientology has many noble elements
to it but think the creed is a fraud because Scientology and
most Scientologists do not act in accordance with their creed.
The creed is pure PR and Scientology and most Scientologists
are hypocrites. A simple example of this hypocrisy is that
their creed says that all men have an inalienable right to
free speech, yet in practice that right is only supported
by the organization when the speech is laudatory of Scientology.
Otherwise you are publicly labeled a bigot and hatemonger
and the fair game policies are applied against you.
of the most difficult aspects of recovering from Scientology
seems to be former members coming to terms with their irresponsibility
while they were in Scientology. Over and over we have had
ex-Scientologists say to us, "I didn't know about all
these bad things going on in the organization," only
to come back later and admit that they just didn't want to
see it. Former Scientologists regret that they had bought
into the management's lies so thoroughly that they couldn't
see what was going on all around them. Many ex-Scientologists
have told us that it was simply a lot easier not to have to
take responsibility for these things. But everyone in the
organization is responsible for what the organization is doing.
that Scientology breeds irresponsibility and that Scientologists
become addicted to that irresponsibility. What else could
happen when throughout your experience in Scientology firstly
it's "Engrams" and your reactive mind that are the
root cause of your problems; then it's space aliens (BT's);
then when you think you have eliminated all your BT's you
discover you've got drugged BT's, then sleeping BT's, then
unconscious BT's and finally you find that the entirety of
the physical universe is a false reality that can be done
away with by auditing even more BT's so that you are able
to step out of the physical universe and be above matter,
energy, space and time.
better understand how Scientology works, read two articles
by Stacy Brooks concerning auditing
and how Scientology views the family.
Then, in combination with the previous articles, read the
outstanding Cartesian Award
winning essay by Erik Snead to get an insight into how
this addiction to irresponsibility happens.
perpetrates fraud, abuse, deception and mind control on its
adherents. These actions violate not only the law but also
the human rights and civil rights of its members. Further,
Scientology abhors criticism so much that it misuses the mantle
of religion to promote and justify hatred and bigotry by its
members, attorneys, private investigators and cult apologists
will defend the right of anyone to practice any truly held
belief they choose. After all, the U.S. Constitution, the
U.N.'s Declaration of Human Rights and other noteworthy national
documents grant this basic freedom to everyone. However, nothing
gives people or institutions the right to engage in behavior
that violates other peoples' rights or the law, even if they
do so in the name of religious motivation
