Saturday, it must be Terra Cognita!
More on Similarities, Differences, and Identities
If we’re all free-willed spiritual beings—L. Ron Hubbard called us, “thetans”—with god-like powers, including cause over matter, energy, space, and time, then why are we all so similar? Relative to the immense size of the universe and the diversity that must exist, everyone here on Earth is practically identical. And not just physically.
Wouldn’t you think there’d be more variety amongst the sentient beings on this planet after trillions of years? Or did we all simply “decide” to play the “being human” game and surrender our most precious abilities?
Wouldn’t you think that with over seven and half billion thetans inhabiting planet Earth, at least a few rebels would have mocked up another game, or at least changed up the rules a bit? Mocked up different bodies? Added a pair of wings to their terrestrial bodies? Chose to walk around on four legs instead of two? Decided on a better game than war?
Am I to believe that all seven and half billion human beings agreed on the same game? With the same rules. Same barriers. Same freedoms. And nobody, not one single person, ever created something else? Something outside the old box?
If humans are good at one thing, it’s disagreeing on shit.
Dogs and Cats
What are the odds that out of seven and half billion people, no one ever decided to occupy a non-human body? Like a dog’s or cat’s? Decided to fly around in the body of a crow? Galloped through tall grass as a horse or unicorn? Founded a real Hogwarts Academy for actual witches and wizards? Could it simply be that no one can? That human beings aren’t as powerful or spiritual as LRH led us to believe? Were we ever?
Maybe “what you see is what you get,” and we’re nothing more than a collection of hyper-active molecules. For most humans, though, this “meat body” viewpoint is unacceptable.
People like to think we’re more than a bunch of animated particles held together by positive and negative electrical charges. That we’re more than wrinkled skin and sacks of bones. Most believe that celestial planes actually exist beyond those which we can see, hear, smell, and feel.
This philosophy is particularly characterized by our belief in an afterlife. That some version of heaven awaits those souls once they drop the ol’ bod. Replete with pearly gates, billowy clouds, and for some lucky Muslims, forty virgins lounging about a cool oasis. Like many others in the world, Scientologists believe in do-overs. Once their old body wears out, they get to choose a new one.
Which raises the question: After having lived these countless lives—per LRH—wouldn’t you think someone in our sector of the galaxy would have evolved beyond Homo sapiens? Are we to believe our frail, accident-prone bodies are the best anyone with god-like abilities could conjure up? After quadrillions of years? Come on guys. Really?
Prove It, Dude
If we are all spiritual beings as described by LRH, wouldn’t you expect to see gangs of mighty Operating Thetans zipping around town generating all sorts of extraordinary effects? Like actually “clearing the planet,” and spreading “the way to happiness?” Or saving real lives by making rain fall on drought-stricken Eastern Africa? Or something simple, like doing away with male erectile dysfunction?
Wouldn’t you expect to have seen a few minor feats performed by now? Like Uncle Stan levitating off his chair at Thanksgiving dinner? Or Aunt Helen healing kids at the local children’s hospital? Or Grandpa Charlie, three sheets to the wind, glowing in the dark under the Christmas tree? Or not having to see a doctor for an erection lasting longer than four hours?
Excuses, Excuses, Excuses
LRH and his followers concocted many excuses why “OT” phenomena shouldn’t be demonstrated.
“People couldn’t have it,” is a common theme. In other words, people would freak-out if they actually saw an ashtray rise off a chair without the help of a human pair of hands. Spontaneously combusting witnesses to such exploits would be out-PR.
“Clearing” the community would be “out reality.”
OT acts would drive psychs crazy!
Things will change once all orgs become ideal.
Once SUMP is up and running…
Things will change for good once OT 9 and 10 are released.
For years, rumors have existed about parishioners with real OT abilities. I have yet to see the video.
Strapped Down on that Damn Chair
According to LRH, we’ve been so heavily implanted with mind and spirit-numbing commands that we can’t operate as true thetans anymore. We can’t even remember how to age gracefully and not get sick. Somehow, all seven and half billion of us have been rendered powerless and incapable of demonstrating even the most elementary of OT skills. As if someone had laced our formula with Kryptonite and lobotomized us when we were babies.
Apparently, implanting is so effective, it works ALL the time on ALL beings. With no exceptions! What are the odds of this “implant tech” working one hundred percent of the time? Wouldn’t you think that a small handful of beings would have figured out how to avoid the “implant station?” Or how to resist its debilitating effects? Or, for some reason known only to God, were naturally immune? Just one thetan out of seven and a half billion? Chaos theory and Murphy’s Law don’t apply?
If implanting tech is so successful, wouldn’t it be easier to simply implant a few dozen super-positive commands in everyone than go through all the trouble of “going up the Bridge?” Couldn’t we just supersede all the harmful commands we’re carrying around with a few beneficial ones? Like: “Bob…you are omnipotent and all that negative shit doesn’t apply anymore.”
Water into Wine
Many of the same questions concerning thetans could be asked of God. For instance, just as no thetan has ever been able to demonstrate OT abilities, why hasn’t God? Why can’t he “hold an event,” and reveal, once and for all, he truly is the creator of all things?
I wouldn’t require much proof. For instance, I wouldn’t expect her to instantly end all war, famine, and human suffering. Or render Viagra unnecessary. A teensy-weensy little demonstration, though, would go a long way in placating my jaded mind. Like what if she turned a few gallons of water into wine, a decent cabernet, maybe, not too dry, hints of ripe plums, licorice, and blackberries? Or allow Joe to go all night without…
End of Ramblings
Did someone really convince seven and half billion spiritual beings to all play the same game? Now that…would be real OT ability.
Still not Declared,
Ed note: seven and a half billion thetans PLUS x trillion body thetans — with OT VII’s “clearing” them with one shot commands every minute. Been curious how “who are you?” isnt a good enough command to clear non-DB thetans? It’s a lot quicker than all that Book One and R3R and Grades that normal thetans need…
