Leah reminded me of a piece of Hubbard crazy that I had totally forgotten about.
This is CURRENT policy of scientology.
These are the covers he is referring to:
According to Ron, any Immigration Official seeing these covers is going to fall all over himself to let the good scientologist into their country. And he is SERIOUS. Scientologists believe this is true because Ron said it is, even though by observation these paintings are middle-school level efforts, especially the boy looking out the window. How this image is supposed to cause anything other than wondering who would use such amateur paintings for the cover of what is claimed to be a serious book is anyone’s guess…
Hubbard delivered a (confidential) lecture on the subject of symbolism to be used on book covers. It all comes from his “research” into the contents of the R6 bank and he explained that by using symbols associated with implants you could control people and cause them to subconsciously want to buy the book. The caveman eating the drumstick on the cover of History of Man is another example. So too the silver spacesuits and snakes. The volcano on Dianetics.
While I don’t have a copy of the confidential briefing I refer to above, I do have the transcript of one of his most notorious lectures, Class VIII course lecture # 10 entitled Assists. In it he says the following:
People are taught carefully that any man who tries to save the world must be killed. he must be mobbed and hanged. Any man who tries to save the world. So I of course, shifted our valence over to a more optimum R6 valence. The whole population of the planet responds like a clock to R6 symbols. They respond to nothing else. They do not respond to reason. They only respond to R6 symbols. So you occupy the wrong symbol and people begin to think of you as a person who is going to save the planet, then one and all are more or less under orders to slaughter you.
Now I could give you much of the symbolism and so on which goes along with this but you find it recorded. This, of course, man responds to an exploding volcano (Ron shows a DMSMH book front cover, which is an exploding volcano). He responds to that. He understands that. It doesn’t restimulate him because he’s not up to being restimulated, he just knows that that’s all right. In R6 everybody is shown crucified.
You saw this in practice in other book covers which are all based on images Hubbard claims come from the R6 bank:
Miscavige of course changed all these covers. Scientologists don’t seem to know or care. Hubbard’s policy of how to deal with Immigration has been knee-capped by The COB. Have You Lived Before This Life? was scrapped altogether. Below is the current covers of Self Analysis. No golden haired boy looking out a window. I guess they had to come up with another technique for dealing with those annoying Immigration Officers because the Hubbard R6 technique is no longer available. It’s an even simpler Hubbard solution — lying.
L. Ron Hubbard left those above magic words, which make Scientologists kind of disappear from being around you, when you say or show those words to them.
XENU and BODY-THETANS are ironically the magic words to Scientologists. I urge all persons I speak to about Scientology, at least, to understand XENU.
I define XENU in 30 seconds, and leave a newbie with the understanding of XENU.
XENU defined, in the public’s mind, will go a LONG ways to boomeranging Hubbard’s nonsense back onto Scientology, for the foreseeable future. Since they cannot change the rules by Hubbard and start defining XENU anytime soon.
That man was flat out insane, no two ways about it!
Wonder why, if Hubbard is so “insightful” he never came up with the double golden arches of McDonalds? Now, that’s a symbol of gigantic sales proportions. More people are drawn to it than you can get thetans on the head of a pin.
As a piece of silly trivia, you can’t buy russet potatoes in Australia from the supermarket. That Idaho fellow J R Simplot grows heaps of them here but they are all grown for fast food fries. What a bummer… they are such great bakers!
There I was just checking out Mike’s work when he showed me some book covers.
I was mesmerized and scrolled down to the next group of book covers.
Innately I started to respond to the images as I scrolled through them.
It was beyond my control – MUST JOIN SCIENTOLOGY.
So I scrolled on down to the last book cover (ready to empty my bank account, sell my house and give it all to $ci.).
Something was different.
My internal itch subsided.
I decided I’d keep all my stuff.
PHEW!! Close one.
Sci Ex says
So my CoS (ex)wife and her family was telling me about how Hubbard had proven that he lived past lives by recalling things that he had left all over the world in past lives. He even lead an expedition around the world to find the artifacts, thus proving it.
I asked if they could please tell me what book I could read to learn about this incredible feat.
So they told me that I would find all the proof in Have You Lived Before.
So I found a copy on eBay for a few bucks and eagerly awaited its delivery. I was ready to be convinced.
As soon as it landed on my doorstep I ran out and grabbed it, ripped the box open and started reading right there at the door.
After I picked my jaw up from the floor I asked her how she could base her faith in Hubbards claims on stories about aliens flying around the galaxy in their spaceships raping each other.
She didn’t have an answer. Yet her and her family’s devotion to LRH and CoS remains unfazed to this day.
I just don’t understand.
And, of course, for publicly pointing out the idiocy, lunacy, stupidity, and pinks-and-grays-driven absurdity of the Great El Bong Blowhard’s effluvial extemporizations, we deserve to be lied to, lied about, harassed, and ruined utterly…so that this sector of the universe may be “saved” by the Wee Wanking Homunculus and Ecclesiastical Emir of the Espinol Stars, David MissRavage.
And so the Hubbard legacy continues to stink up the joint…
Craig Martin says
“Wee Wanking Homunculus”. Stellar, practically baptismal naming! ” WWH” has entered the nomenclature, and shall be accorded all honors thereby due. Thank you from the bottom of the volcano Mark!
Arslykan bricks and Van Allen Belt tricks; workin’ that (w)hole track mojo…😂
Angry Gay Pope says
Note the huge infectious cyst on LRH’s head in the B&W photo at top. Very famous cyst! No fan of doctors he hated dentists even more!
I think they should have excised the parasitic growth that was attached to the cyst.
Joe Pendleton says
Great data! When I go to Ukraine next week to help confront the Russkies , I’m gonna take print outs from this blog of these covers and use them to grease the wheels. I was gonna say Biden/Taxpayer Money to show them I was an ally. Now I”m just gonna say, I’m with Scientology! I know how much the Orthodox Christian church just loves that.
Symbolism, oh yeah. What I actually found helpful when travelling by plane was the socalled “Solo Wings” pin. Not so much with immigration officials but certainly with airline personnel 🙂 Just wearing it visibly got me better and faster service.
Doug Sprinkle says
So apparently Ron really believed his R6 story?
If I was an immigration officer questioning someone at the border and they held up a book cover like those I’d truly consider detaining them for mental competency testing. Even if all their documents were in order.
And having the dog sniff their bags really good.
Yeah that too. As long as they are able to sniff Koolaide, 🙂
ha ha ha . good one.
Todd Cray says
Oops. You said “sniff their ba*s.” On first read, I thought it was “sniff their ba**s.” All the hubbarf lunacy must be getting to me…

Something about the drumsticks….
