Things are desperate aboard the Moneywinds it seems.
All those spectacular seminars by the world’s most voracious “FSM’s” do not appear to be doing the trick. Nor the “how to make money” seminars from CO FSSO and her crew who cannot generate enough income to buy the fuel to sail out of port.
So, they are trying to get people there with give-aways. It tells you everything you need to know about the state of the “Top of the Bridge” of scientology that they have to try and entice people to get others to arrive — with a SPECIAL AWARD for OT VIIIs that can be conned into going to the ship to the do the PURIF and OBJECTIVES.
How is it that with the spectacular and unprecedented, straight up and vertical, 63X, massive international expansion there isn’t anyone arriving at the TOP of the Bridge? Why is the ship not filled to the gunwales with people on OT VIII with a line waiting on the docks for space to free up? Why is it that every other org is booming, and this org, designed to accommodate the flow of OT VIIIs in 1988 has not needed to expand? In fact, they cannot fill a single course room or seminar.
Nobody seems to comment on this. It seems that people ONLY go to the Moneywinds for the Maiden Voyage celebration and they manage to get 250 people rounded up for that week to hobnob with the COB. I guess they must assume the place is like that the rest of the time. Sort of like believing the Indianapolis International Speedway has 250,000 people in it every day of the year.
This issue reeks of desperation.
If scientology has the answers to all life, and OT VIII is the ULTIMATE achievement in scientology and first TRUE OT Level, people should be falling all over themselves to get it. It is FAR more important than if someone had come up with a cure for cancer. Or even a new iPhone.
Somehow, the reality isn’t even in the same ballpark as the hype.
