The Sea Org coat of arms includes one word, the latin Revenimus – “We Come Back.” It is the motto of the Sea Org.
I received an email recently about the passing of Ken Delderfield which reminded me of how many of the important names from the early years of the Sea Org have now passed. Ken was the LRH Communicator WorldWide and then was on the Apollo and began the Pubs Org. He was the person who got the original OEC Volumes compiled and printed.
Recently we learned of the death of Tony Dunleavy, Hubbard’s “Staff Captain” for many years and then the first Captain of the Flag Service Organization on land. David Light, one of the most famous names in the annals of scientology Registrars also passed in the last few weeks.
They join a long list of others, including of course the Commodore himself and Captain Mary Sue Hubbard.
Not a one of them has “Come back.”
Nor have the many other Sea Org members who have “dropped their bodies” – no sign of Jens Bogvad, Bill Robertson, Phyll Stevens, Allen Buchanan, Bill Franks, Dave Richards, Amos Jessup, Lyman Spurlock, Annie Broeker, Frank McCall, Richard Reiss, David Mayo, Jeff Walker or any of the hundreds I have forgotten or never knew.
Some might argue that a many of these had left the Sea Org before their death and thus would never return in their next life. Maybe so. But many of these were die-hard SO members to their last breath, including Deld. And none of them have ever “come back” — not even the Commodore himself, though he has mansions that have been constructed in anticipation of his return in locations around the world.
And what of the OT VII’s among them — those who been cured of amnesia on Whole Track? Even those who were not Sea Org, like my mother and father? No sign of them.
In fact, in the entire history of scientology, there is not a single person that I have known who has “returned.” There are people who claim to have recalled being “Past Life Clear” and “attended Briefing Course lectures at St Hill” but when push comes to shove, any detailed recollection that could verify their former identity seems to be missing. Not a single person has stepped up and said “I m back to rejoin the Sea Org — my name was ____ and I was [fill in any post title or location or rank or anything identifying]…”
Yet, the Sea Org continues to promote this.
It’s all part of the myth of scientology.
