     WARNING!  THIS POSTING SHOULD NOT BE READ BY ANYONE WHO IS A MEMBER
IN GOOD STANDING WITH THE CHURCH OF SCIENTOLOGY OR WHO IS CONSIDERING
BECOMING ONE.  THIS POSTING CONTAINS REFERENCES TO 'UPPER LEVEL'
MATERIAL WHICH MIGHT CONCEIVABLY RUIN YOUR CASE BY RENDERING IT
UNADITABLE WITH PRESENT DAY AUDITORS USING PRESENT DAY STANDARD TECH
AVAILABLE ON EARTH AT THIS TIME, WHETHER OR NOT YOU INTEND TO BECOME A
MEMBER OF THE CHURCH.  IF YOU DO DECIDE TO READ THIS POSTING, YOU DO SO
ENTIRELY AND ONLY AT YOUR OWN RISK.
 
     It is an absolutely preposterous argument that LRH 'tested' the
tech and 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
preclear.
 
     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 probably regretted it after he died.

     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 preclear.  Either your
own Ethics, Tech and Admin are out as the deliverer, or the Ethics, Tech
and Admin of the preclear 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 or each other.
 
     He needed to buy some time in order to make good on his promises to
his followers.

     Better to lie to his followers and keep them productively all in
line, than have it all go to hell, EVEN IF ONLY A PARTIAL PERCENTAGE OF
ALL WHO WANTED HELP WERE ACTUALLY 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.
 
     Admittedly most of tech failures are probably failures in the
quality and spiritual height of the C/S's and auditors, you gotta be
willing to TALK to these sub level goons to make real case gain.

     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 as he was clearly one of
the most astounding people to visit Earth in a long while.

     Certainly more astounding than me.
 
     Once more I would miss out on a chance to kiss the feet of the
Master.
 
     THE TRUTH IS LRH 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 own case, and he was terrified that
the same thing might happen to his preclears 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)

     Thus the mythologies surrounding the dangers of knowing OT III
before the preclear is ready for it.
 
     Let me tell you OT III is child's play compared to NEMESIS ONE.

     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.
 
     "What might a God do to pass the time?"

     When the channel did open and preclears got sick, the Spin Control
Lords would find ways to blame the preclear 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 when session continuously red tag.
 
     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!

     Jesus fucking Christ, ok well don't get me started..."

     How can you erase an engram if the preclear is USING or even BEING
the engram in order to survive at all costs.
 
     USE of engrams is run out at Grade IV, THEN maybe you can run
Dianetics.
 
     So 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?
 
     Maybe you figure you can run the ones he has his face stuck in
because he IS holding onto them so hard!  Good luck, he NEEDS the
engrams he is holding onto for dear life, if he were to run one out, it
would immediately be replaced by another one in the stack of engrams he
has caved in on himself.

     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.'
 
     Ron didn't have a Grade Chart on a wall somewhere in every one
of his many hideouts?

     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 totally ARC broken 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 who were working on this stuff,
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.
 
     If you have ever run into a wall of pain in your auditing, that's
what you are looking at.  If you are lucky it will run out if you just
be with it for 10 minutes.  Trying to DO something about the pain just
crunches it all up and makes it worse.

     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 (dead beings lying all up and down
the track), and this was where he was lying flat on his back in bed near
death and they called Mayo in to audit LRH, 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.  But alas it was work for
hire.
 
     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 preclear or the Org personnel, which of course makes
things worse, and closes the door to any possible handle, which is to
find the NEW or corrected tech.
 
     If LRH had to suffer the tech that was extant at any given point in
time, rather than find NEW tech, he would have been dead long ago.
 
     That's why LRH came up with Dianetics 55!, because Dianetics Today
was a dead end *FOR HIM*.

     Sometimes all that is necessary is to ASK THE PC!
 
     The preclear is often just sitting there waiting for LRH to
recognize that the preclear has a case too.  The preclear 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'. (Sees beings everywhere).
 
         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.
 
     Thus purposes went out of align.

     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.
 
     If perchance the Channel was opened, the case was RUINED, not
because there was no tech to handle it, but because LRH was bound not to
release it, lest everyone else 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 clusters?
 
     Electra said,
 
     '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 such a good
little Scientologist and so cooperative."
 
     "Oh and wear your SP badge with pride, you have helped us and the
world more than you know or we are ever going to admit."

     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.
 
     We are trying to get better without killing our bodies in the
process after all.

     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 preclear comes in and gets 300 hours of Life Repair, goes
totally broke, and finally goes away with a ruined life.  Was it the
preclear?  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 preclear's auditor, the preclear 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 David 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 freezone 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.
 
     It's a way to get you to cough up your money for services so you
can keep your withholds.

     Frankly if you are an honest preclear 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 are still stupid as stupid comes.

     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 telecommunion 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, er, they
went the way of all flesh a while back, kind of ahead of schedule..."
 
     The road to full OT, to 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.

     You would faint if they did.
 
     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 fast enough.
 
     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, none of which he
has any idea where it came from or how to create it, and then 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.
 
     And Lord save him, he's 60 years old and his wet nurse dies.

     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 becomes ALONE, and alone he has no ability.
 
     An OT is able ALONE.
 
     The supreme joke and final ironic 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.

     They are ENTITLED TO NOT KNOW and have a DUTY TO NOT KNOW lest they
get restimulated.

     The poor dears.
 
     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.
 
     WE ALREADY KNOW IT ALL, SO WE DON'T HAVE TO LOOK FURTHER.

     And the one word we will never ever remember no matter what is
VERIFY.

     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 or just trying to be difficult.
 
     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 or even WORKS, and THEY NEVER HAVE TO FIX IT WHEN IT DOES GOES
WRONG.
 
     How can you fix what you are not even allowed to add to or enhance?

     To really understand something you usually have to tear it
completely down and rebuild it from scratch yourself.

     They merely blame others or the preclear 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
them, 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 and be able to help others do the same?

     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 tech grow if you don't allow MORE tech to come into being?

     More and better, faster, cheaper, safer.

     How can you grow and expand if your knowledge about WHAT TO AUDIT
and HOW TO AUDIT does not grow and expand with you?

     Anatomy and approach, what else is there?
 
     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 better RESULTS TOMORROW!

     For today's tech will only keep up with today's problems, mostly.
 
     Maybe.

     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.
 
     The Church in 2017 as I write this, does not have tomorrow's tech
any more than they did in 1951 when all they had was single flow
dianetics.

     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."
 
     Not to mention the gobzillions of other ones.
 
     Yes maybe the total knowledge needed to clear all these endless
universes is in the end finite and simple.

     But its probably more than what you got in that little green or
book you are holding in your hand.

     And people want to know it is finite, that it is all contained in
these many but finite number of books, because the idea that there might
be more and more and more as time goes on gives them the OT willies.

     "Hey I paid you to teach me EVERYTHING!"

     And I assure you THEY won't be the ones to find that more tech that
the world will depend upon in 300 years.

     Hubbard must have wanted to kill off his Church mighty bad.
 
     Having a fixed amount of knowledge is like having a fixed 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 and scientologists still using 1986 tech in 2026 will
look like bums on bum street.  Toss them a coin for charity.

     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.

     It doesn't have to be infinite, just unbounded.
 
     Homer
