     It is an absolutely preposterous argument that LRH 'tested' the
tech, therefore it works on everyone.  He did not test it on everyone,
he tested it only on a very, very small subset of the human race, and on
many of those he failed, and they blew or became unauditable, most of
which was blamed on them.  Out Ethics, you know.
 
     They made the mistake of having a case on post, the post of being a
pc.
 
     You can not possibly know that the tech works on absolutely
everyone, and if it doesn't work on just one person for whatever reason,
then it doesn't work on everyone.
 
     Ron HAD to tell his followers that it 'worked on everyone' or else
he would have left things open to further research and development after
he was gone.
 
     He was lying and he knew it, and if he didn't regret it before he
died, he certainly regretted it after he died.
 
     "You think the work of one man for one lifetime was sufficient to
solve the problems of all mankind for ever more?"  -Electra
 
     Independent Expanded Scientology is a growing, prospering and
flourishing area of research and development, speed of auditing is
greatly increasing every year, and more and more cases are being handled
within the person's financial capability.
 
     There is nothing sadder than the Closed Canon that Hubbard left his
followers, for reasons I can only guess.
 
     If you say that you have the tech that can handle anyone, and then
someone comes along that can not be handled, your only options are
limited to correcting yourself or correcting the pc.  Either your own
Ethics, Tech and Admin are out as the deliverer, or the Ethics, Tech and
Admin of the pc are out as the receiver.
 
     This is indeed often the case, however there is a third option,
which is that the Ethics, Tech and Admin of Hubbard were out and what he
left behind him was an imperfect Bridge.
 
     He was dying of case, during the late 70's, when I was being told
that the tech 'works' for everyone.
 
     I was dying of what HE was dying of, NOTS, and they were telling me
that the tech works for everyone.  Get it?
 
     It is and always was a front to make sure that people did not panic
because if they had known at any time the true condition that LRH was in
during these sick periods they would have lost all hope.  ((Not to
mention been TERRIFIED--Jane)) It would have been Squirrel City, with no
one having any confidence in the tech.
 
     Better to lie to his followers and keep them all in line, than have
it all go to hell, EVEN IF ONLY A PARTIAL PERCENTAGE OF ALL WHO WANTED
HELP WERE HELPABLE.
 
     But then if you are one of the not so helpable kind, you've got
endless D of P's (director of processing) forcing down on you 'This
WORKS!' no matter how much it doesn't.
 
     I figured LRH never came around to visit us because he was too busy
researching upper levels.  I knew he would die and I would never get to
meet him.  For me that was as sad as sad comes.  Once more I would miss
out on a chance to kiss the feet of the Master.
 
     THE TRUTH IS HE WASN'T VISITING US BECAUSE HE COULDN'T EVEN CRAWL
OUT OF BED!
 
     That is why many of the SHSBC tapes are confidential, because they
were made when LRH was IN many of his sick periods during his research
into GPMS.  He was TERRIFIED of his case, and he was terrified that the
same thing might happen to his pcs and the public, and he didn't want
them going through what he was going through.
 
     HE WASN'T SURE HE COULD FIX IT.
 
     You know, 'the channel that was better left closed.' (8-8008, pg.
122)
 
     The entirety of his 'Bridge' was an effort to raise his own case up
to the point where he could finally confront that channel that was
better left closed.
 
     He was trying to get better AROUND the core of his case so he could
finally look that Hell in the face.
 
     When the channel did open and pcs got sick, the Spin Control Lords
would find ways to blame the pc or the org personnel because LRH and the
tech had to be protected at any cost.
 
     You see you have an ARBITRARY DATUM THERE, 'THE TECH IS NOT WRONG'.
From that arbitrary datum you get all the rest of the screwy solutions
that they always come up with.
 
     Well the fact is that the tech IS wrong, in many places.  For
example when I was there they had Dianetics on the Grade Chart BEFORE
the Grades!  Now how are you gonna get a person to run out an engram
when he is holding on to them so hard with a Service Fac computation?
 
     Well AFTER I was broke, they finally figured that one out, but not
an apology or a peep from them.  'We don't OWE you.' is all I got.
 
     Oh yes, and 'Ron didn't write it and didn't know about it.'
 
     Well at least they fixed that small out point that was stopping
everyone from going up the Bridge except the liars, the false attesters,
and the chronic F/Ners.  That's a frown that is so far south it looks
like a smile.
 
     But they are still trying to run out Drug Engrams before the
Grades, so some lessons just are not learned.
 
     When LRH got done with GPMS in 1963, he ran into OT II and III.
They all, the whole group of them, suffered horribly from the effects of
the auditing and the case restimulation.  A number of people ended up in
the hospital during these days from GPM 'creaks' and other
restimulation.  This material is VERY HARD ON THE BODY.
 
     OT III itself almost killed Ron, he even wrote a letter handing
over control to various people in case he didn't make it.  That was
1967.
 
     After OT III he ran into NOTS and this was where he was lying flat
on his back in bed near death and they called Mayo in, somewhere near
the end of 1978.
 
     NOTS IS THE CHANNEL THAT WAS BETTER LEFT CLOSED.
 
     Mayo audited LRH for months until he was up and around again, and
what came out of this was NOTS.  Mayo wrote up all the NOTS tech at
Ron's request, and because of this, Mayo in fact owns the copyright to
NOTS, which is what Mayo's huge lawsuit with the Church was about, which
the Church LOST WITH PREJUDICE last year.
 
     You see they will tell you about the law suit they won with the IRS
but they won't tell you about how they kicked the best person they had
out of the org and the rest of the Upper Level Bridge with him.
 
     LRH was alright after NOTS for a long time, but then he started to
go on a decline again in the last years.  They claim he died in perfect
control of his death, but it is more likely the next level up killed him
dead.
 
     Therefore to say that the tech works for everyone is a joke, a
dangerous joke, because when things go wrong THEY ALWAYS BLAME THE WRONG
TARGET, either the pc or the Org personnel, which of course closes the
door to any possible handle, which is to find the NEW and correct tech.
 
     If LRH had to suffer the tech that was extant, rather than find NEW
tech, he would have been dead long ago.
 
     Sometimes all that is necessary is to ASK THE PC!
 
     The pc is often just sitting there waiting for LRH to recognize
that the pc has a case too.  The pc already knows it.
 
     From Electra,
 
         Aud: 'Well what's wrong with you today?'
     Electra: 'Monsters'
         Aud: 'Oh, yes, well, Ethics will handle your PTS Type III
condition'.
 
         E/O: 'Well what's wrong with you today?"
     Electra: 'Monsters'
         E/O: 'What monsters?'
 
     While LRH was spending his whole life building a Bridge that would
keep that damn channel closed, the rest of us were trying to open it up
and confront it.  He was too, but the tech he released to the rest of
the world, was the tech that kept it closed.
 
     So of course, some of us didn't make any gain with his tech.  It
was designed to not work.  It was designed to increase the productive
output of Closed Channel Sweetness and Light cases, allowing them to
'get better' but remain Closed and Sweet.
 
     Once the Channel was opened, the case was RUINED, not because there
was no tech to handle it, but because he was bound not to release it,
lest everyone get messed up.
 
     Assuming he had it to release, which before 1978 he didn't.
 
     But if a person starts to take steps in the direction of handling
these conditions himself, Soloing, Squirreling, Self Auditing, he is
immediately declared and booted, and harassed and hounded so that he
CAN'T find the correct tech and get better.
 
     And Lord make sure he doesn't have an E-meter.
 
     His books and meter are taken away from him so that he 'can't hurt
himself or others'.
 
     OR OPEN ANYBODY ELSE'S CHANNEL.
 
     The kind and number of overt acts that the Church and its personnel
KNOWINGLY have on this subject of 'the tech works for everyone' is
utterly uncountable.
 
     It would have been fine if Electra and me were the only ones in the
Universe with Open Channels, maybe we could have suffered our Eternities
as ruined cases for the sake of everyone else.  But many of you who have
gone through Scientology and left it in disgust are Open Channel Cases,
and man you just aren't going to win with the Sweetness and Light
Approach.
 
     What are you going to feed your Demon?
 
     Electra says,
 
     'Well my demons work for me now, the church can audit their own.'
 
     I am happy for her, but mine aren't in such good shape, and the
rest of you are probably wondering when someone is going to fess up to
what's going on.
 
     Very few can handle this material, the Church certainly can't and
WON'T.
 
     Many of you know that Scientology works, but you are also wondering
why the hell then are you so alone outside of the Church?
 
     Well there is your why.  It's a refused handle.
 
     It's a sacrifice play.  You for the many.  "If we admitted you
weren't the SP, then we might stir everyone up, wake them up ahead of
time, and where would that get us?  WE DON'T HAVE THE TECH TO DEAL WITH
IT.  So you have to go.  The only way we can legally MAKE you go is to
declare you SP.  You understand?  Good.  Thank you for being
cooperative."
 
     Some would go so far as to claim that LRH never had any sick
periods, and that Mayo had nothing to do with the NOTS development
during one of those periods.  They live the lie that Hubbard was perfect
and that the tech he left behind him is perfect or at least workable for
everyone.  Perfect here only means workable for everyone.
 
     Perfect means that no one's case was ever ahead of the tech,
waiting for the tech to catch up if it ever did.
 
     So Ron says that the tech is not perfect, but it is workable.  But
what does workable mean?  That ALL can walk the Bridge who wish to?  So
some pc comes in and gets 300 hours of Life Repair, goes totally broke,
and finally goes away with a ruined life.  Was it the pc?  Was it the
Org Personnel?  The auditor?  The C/S?  The Tech?
 
     Well of course it is not the Tech, because Ron tested it.  That
means that if RON had been the pc's auditor, the pc would have done just
fine.  
 
     Assuming Ron could get out of bed to audit him that is.
 
     Of course no one in the Church would ever admit the Bridge was not
workable, they are not SP's, and anyone who does tell the story like it
is, is clearly an SP because they are out of the Church.
 
     But these SP's were all THERE, and they all tell the same story.
 
     You love Ron but you hate Mayo?
 
     How many hours do Roos and Mayo have BY RON'S SIDE?  Going through
his folders, auditing him, trying to keep him alive out of a love most
of us will be lucky to even dream of?
 
     How many hours does Miscavige have BY RON'S SIDE?
 
     Who are the SP's?
 
     There is NOTHING more arrogant and dangerous to the well being of
mankind than to say that the tech is complete and finished and workable
for all.  Even the field falls into this routine, 'We can NOW handle
ANYONE!'.  This always was garbage, always is garbage and always will be
garbage.  It's a rah rah effort to reg you.
 
     Frankly if you are an honest pc looking for real gains in this
lifetime, you are lucky if you find enough tech, in enough time, at a
low enough cost to actually handle WHAT YOU CAME INTO SCIENTOLOGY TO GET
HANDLED.
 
     Auditors can handle anything but that!
 
     Thousands and thousands of people, all of whom love Scientology and
who will tell you that it works beautifully, will none the less tell you
outright that they did not get handled what they came into Scientology
to get handled.
 
     They are still fat, they are still ugly, they still wear glasses,
they still can't stand their mothers, they die of cancer like the rest
of the human race, they can't remember a thing, they have no idea where
they came from or where they are going, they live in a world of
telepathy and communion which only 'works' as long as they don't have to
verify that it works.
 
     They are all addicted to some vice or another, alcohol, pot,
cigarettes, sex, pills, sleep, interiorization etc.
 
     They have endless trouble in their lives, and they couldn't spot
the devil in their best friend, even if she had a tail sticking out
between her legs.
 
     Most of them, the honest ones, will tell you this.  They are more
likely to tell you though AFTER they leave the Church, when they no
longer have to parade themselves around as a Valuable Final Product from
an Eight Cylinder System that is running on 2 Cylinders.
 
     "Hi I am a NOTS completion.  My Tits?  Oh yes, well, uh, they went
the way of all flesh a while back, kind of ahead of schedule..."
 
     The road to full OT, to total happiness as an Adorable Operating
Pride Source, is just that, A ROAD.  It is a long road and you will do
well to walk much of it in any one lifetime.  We have just started to
understand this road and the work of LRH was seminal in that
understanding.
 
     It's not like everyone has all the answers and they just aren't
telling you.
 
     NO ONE comes to a full understanding of the nature of a God (You,
Asshole) in one lifetime.  It is possible to attain shadows of that
state if you live in a highly protected environment, in a limited subset
of existence, where the rampant counter efforts of life and the raging
universe at large can not touch you for a while.
 
     You can be serene and hate your enemies, you can enjoy your upstat
life.  But let the walls come crashing down, let the real tiger into
your universe and you won't know which way to run.  
 
     So much for being OT.
 
     LRH defined a WOG as a Worthy Oriental Gentleman.  All slams at the
Asian race aside, what it means is a person who has become so totally
taken care of by those around him that he doesn't know how to do
anything for himself anymore.  He is carried here and there, he is
bathed, he is fed, his every need is catered to.  He is driven to the
supermarket, where he has endless food waiting for him, he has someone
to choose and cook his food for him, and even do his laundry for him.
 
     He even has people lighting his cigarettes for him.
 
     He lives in buildings he can not build, he uses machines he could
not fix, let alone invent or design, and he depends on the vast
resources inherent in the civilization around him, TO KEEP HIM ALIVE.
 
     He can't see without his glasses, yet he has no idea how to make
glass, or anything about optics or the history of science; or the blood
sweat and tears that went into the pair that he wears on his nose, and
he throws a fit when he can't find them because he can't see them.
 
     Should that society of accumulated ability and structure collapse
around him, due to natural or other causes, he won't be able to take
care of himself because HE DOESN'T KNOW ANYTHING OF HIS OWN, BECAUSE HE
HAS BEEN TAKEN CARE OF FOR HIS WHOLE LIFE.  He only knows how to command
others to do things for him, how to think for him, how to see for him,
and finally how to live for him.
 
     Thus when things go to hell, the WOG dies.
 
     Because he is ALONE, and alone he has no ability.
 
     An OT is able ALONE.
 
     The supreme joke and final justice of it all is that the Church has
now produced its own generation of WOGS, Churchie wogs, who have exactly
zero idea of what the REAL world is really like, of what REAL cases are
really like, cases that have collided their whole lives with the REAL
universe, Churchie wogs who in general have zero idea of what they are
talking about at all times.
 
     They live in a very small fishbowl of a reality, with everything
that is not LRH, not Scientology, not Church, not accepted, not on their
list of OK and PERMISSIBLE contacts and terminals, excluded into that
great big OTHER that they never have to look at, learn about, deal with
or handle.
 
     It's a gigantic closed channel with a self installed right to have
it closed.
 
     A Service Fac computation on a roll in other words.
 
     The entirety of Scientology Technology and LRH writings have become
a huge Service Fac for them allowing them to shut out, not look at and
not handle the real world around them.
 
     THEY DON'T HAVE TO LOOK BECAUSE THEY HAVE THE TECH TO LOOK FOR
THEM.  THE TECH SUPPLANTS THE BEING, IT OPERATES AS THE BEING, FOR THE
BEING.
 
     They don't look at the world, they look at the tech, they look at
the world through the tech and if the tech and the world do not agree,
then the world is wrong.
 
     REALITY BECOMES MORE IMPORTANT THAN ACTUALITY.
 
     ((Reality is what you think is true, actuality is what *IS* true.))
 
     The Service Fac computation is 'LRH tested it, so it works for
everyone.'
 
     Therefore THEY never have to test it further, THEY never have to
improve on it, THEY never have to LOOK AT and learn about why it REALLY
FAILS, and THEY NEVER HAVE TO FIX IT WHEN IT DOES GOES WRONG.
 
     They merely blame others or the pc and hang heads on a pike, and
that is their fixed solution to everything that goes wrong in the Church
or in auditing or in the field or with the government etc.
 
     A fixed computation, a fixed not looking, a substitute looking for
you, and a fixed solution to ALL the problems of life.
 
     Doesn't this add up to a Service Fac?
 
     I mean is it as simple as an out Grade IV?
 
     The E/P of Grade IV is "the ability to move out of fixed conditions
and do new things."

     Like live life?

     They are getting themselves closed down all over the world, and of
course THEY HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH IT.  They are innocent victims.  And
that will be their dying cry the day the doors close forever on them
BECAUSE THE WRONG WHY DOES NOT OPEN THE DOOR!
 
     'Sniff Sniff, Here Lies Me, Poor Me, I was done in by those who
could not admit I was right.'
 
     How right can you be?  DEAD and CLOSED!
 
     Watch it happen.
 
     A Closed Canon can not Prosper and Flourish.  It can only breed
insanity, fear and blood shed.
 
     If you do not grow and expand, you die.
 
     NOTHING CAN STAY THE SAME!

     So either you get bigger or you get smaller.

     How can you grow and expand if your knowledge about WHAT TO AUDIT
and HOW TO AUDIT does not grow and expand with you?
 
     How can you Standardize Wisdom FOREVER?  Churchie Wogs have
Standard confused with FROZEN.
 
     Standard means 'what is true TODAY that we make sure EVERYONE DOES
THE SAME TODAY.'
 
     That is worth while for those who want it.

     Standard doesn't mean NO CHANGE TOMORROW.
 
     By Standardizing the Tech you guarantee smooth and predictable
delivery within the expanding limits of correctness of that tech.
 
     The only things which don't change tomorrow are those things which
are dead.
 
     By Freezing the Tech you guarantee smooth and predictable NON
delivery of RESULTS!

     For today's tech will only keep up with today's problems.
 
     By not having a growing tech and research department you merely
guarantee that you will handle all those cases that can be handled with
today's tech.  When you run out of them, there will still be people
beating down your door for handling which you won't be able to deliver
because you won't have tomorrow's tech.
 
     It is a FIXED IDEA that WHAT WE KNOW TODAY IS SUFFICIENT FOR THE
REST OF TIME.  What you know today BECOMES the fixed idea!  It's fixed
because it never changes.
 
     Can you imagine no more new rundowns, no more new correction lists,
no more new C/S series?  "Here, this fixed body of knowledge is all you
will ever need to know for the rest of time in this infinite operating
expanding universe."
 
     Hubbard must have wanted to kill off his Church mighty bad.
 
     Having a finite amount of knowledge is like having a finite amount
of fuel.  Eventually you run out and your motor stops.
 
     Growth takes place on all four planes of existence, physical,
emotional, mental and spiritual.  By closing the Canon, they are
claiming they can grow while their base of technical knowledge (mental
plane) remains forever frozen in 1986.
 
     How will this look in 2026?
 
     Scientology was once in a race against the Atom Bomb.  The
knowledge on how to blow ourselves up has not been frozen.  Will
Scientology win?
 
     The good people still in the Church, the Independent Expanded
Scientology field and its Clearing Technology offshoots are the only
hope left for Mankind.  They are the only place that LIFE and GROWTH are
still Operating the Tech.
 
     The tech of KNOWING HOW TO KNOW MORE TECH.
