The question you have to ask after reading this breathless promo — why would anyone pay to go to the Freewinds when you can apparently “Go OT” virtually?
The second question — is there any difference between an OT and a virtual OT? Aren’t all OT’s “virtual” anyway as the state is entirely subjective — nobody has ever objectively proven that an OT exists. Hubbard’s explanation for that was “we don’t do parlor tricks.” The only time anyone supposedly set out to verify any OT abilities was Ingo Swann and Hal Puthoff trying to turn it into an intelligence tool for the CIA. Nothing ever came of that. Even the simplest claims that being OT makes you happier or more causative are disproven by the numerous “OT’s” who are neither despite their “success stories.” And that’s not even touching the “cause over matter, energy, space and time,” or “freedom from overwhelm,” or “freedom from amnesia in the whole track.”
So, one must conclude that all “OTness” is virtual as there is no evidence otherwise. Finally, some truth in advertising from scientology?
