This is a collection of standard issue, cookie-cutter scientology mirages, misrepresentations and lies.
If you see a promo piece from a scientology org, “ideal” or otherwise, you know you will be witnessing some bs.
Let’s start at the top.
This is their collection of “Good News” — the best news they can come up with in this ideal org. And that consists of a single “success story” from someone who is already a Class V auditor and has already read “all the basics” upon completion of the Technique 88 lecture series. For those unfamiliar, the Technique 88 lectures describe how to audit the incidents laid out in History of Man — everything from the Clam and Halver to the Fly-Trap and the Piltdown Man. The auditing procedures include Symbological Processing and processing of Blanketing and Borrowings. If all this sounds bizarre, it is. And it is not touched upon anywhere in “modern” scientology other than as a study of the “evolution” of auditing and Ron’s “research track.” Here is how the Tech Dictionary describes “Technique 88” — it’s completely vague because nobody really knows or cares.
TECHNIQUE 88, 1. a technique is in there for everything. And that’s why we say Technique 88. There’s an infinity of techniques inside of Technique 88. Technique 88 includes all of the technology of doing anything that man or any other being has ever done. (5206CM25B) 2 . is processing the theta body and actually anything that pertains to processing the theta body can be lumped into Technique 88. (5206CM27A) 3 . the knowledge and know-how necessary to clear a theta body. (5206CM27A)
But apparently, listening to Hubbard ramble on about this insane stuff was a life changing experience for her…
And just for info, you can buy the entire lecture series for $18 — or even less used. A LOT less than what they charge you in the orgs… A LOT.
Apparently, Yasha Anderson is the ONLY “completion” they have. Even though they are “open” nobody has completed a real course or auditing rundown…
BUT, here’s the good news. They are working on going St Hill Size.
Every org on earth has been working on this since the early 80’s when Hubbard said they could do it in a matter of weeks, if, and only if, they were “on purpose.” Auckland has been ideal now since Miscavige jetted in to yank his ribbon more than 4 years ago. And they are no closer to “St Hill Size” than when they moved into their new, empty building. In fact, I would bet everything I own that today they are smaller by count of staff and volume of income and delivery than they were the day of the ribbon yanking.
But, thanks to COB, scientology “has the tech” and they are in an era of unprecedented expansion — in their minds. In fact, I think the truth is that they are in an era of unprecedented contraction. I don’t believe since 1950 that the shrinkage of scientology has been anything close to what has been seen over the last 5 years.
