They are at it again. MEGA status is the latest term to enter the Scientology dictionary — you know the dictionaries that Voldemort announced in 2001 (or maybe before?) that are STILL not complete and released.
This now joins the other coined terms of late in the world of the RCS:
Humanitarian — someone who went into debt to give money to buy MEST for those not in need
Command Intention — whatever Voldemort wants or is thought to want
Department 21 — David Miscavige
Training — buying The Basics and Lectures
OT — Objectives Co-audit
There are of course many more and I am sure a number of commenters will outdo my feeble effort (I am out of town so don’t have a lot of time to put together a lengthy dissertation….)
Unfortunately I lost the photo of the smiling visage of the Taylors that accompanied this “Success Story.” I have NOT altered this from the way it was sent. Typos, missing words and horrendous punctuation and grammar are as it was presenting to the public in an effort to persuade them to follow in the footsteps of the Taylors. Wonder if they ever did KTL? Or graduated High School? Oi Vey….
|IAS MEGA-STATUS SUCCESS STORY
Bud & Claire Taylor
As Scientologists BudBuz and I live VERY eting lives. Not only, because of the tech do we experience wonderful changes daily in our lives, we are able to take these changes within ourselves and magnify them by the application of the tech on our employees and customers and family and friends. Everyday as Scientologists we bit by bit make a better world through efficiency, effectiveness, good communication and high ARC. When we effectively handle others, we also observe others rising up and then effectively handle the people they touch.
This year we have the largest release ever in the history of Scientology. This has been worked on for years with many countless hours by Sea Org Members. We want to experience it LIVE. That means going to Flag and experiencing it all! The release, the new Super Power Building and OF COURSE the spectacular IAS Event and Ball. The IAS Event live is like no other as the accomplishments of what is near and dear to us all are presented. And the ball is THE MOST PHENOMENAL BEAUTIFULLY PRESENTED EVENT in Scientology.
Ms. Taylor thinks everything she thinks and does is SO IMPORTANT! Typical product of the RCS standard EP of the Bridge to Total Freedom.
I’ll bet she thinks that whatever she and Buzz flush down the toilet every day is also a contribution to the world too.
Sorry if that was gross.
Big Being = Someone who pays the IAS to create big effects like buying the Little One another airplane rather than using that money to buy groceries for his family.
By the way…the next status being added to the IAS line up is Thetan Bankrupticus.
Jane Doe says
I know several who are OT VIII completions that did bankruptcies and debt negotiations where they walked away from debt. And the MAA’s never blink an eye and just pass them to go on up to their next level no matter the number of bankruptcies where they left their creditors holding the bag.
Jane Doe says
It all falls under “the greatest good…” Nevermind that WTH says fulfill your obligations. The church only cares that you fulfill your “obligation” to the church and the rest be hanged.
Mrs Libnish says
Oh, that is just painful. Delphi graduate….?
” The release, the new Super Power Building and OF COURSE the spectacular IAS Event and Ball…” I’m sorry, WHEN is that going to happen? I must have missed that announcement.
Jose Chung says
What a racket.
I would pay to peek at the financial records of the C of $
but I’m afraid I’ll have to stand in line behind Justice Dept. Auditors.
And I want to thank and acknowledge Mike Rinder again, for getting out the truth. It IS the cure. It IS the sunlight which is killing the dank, creeping RCS mold.
Jane Doe says
Hear Hear Aquamarine! Hooray for Mike Rinder! This blog is saving lives. And thank you for testifying. Thanks also to Marty, Mosey, Steve Hall, Karen J, Luis Garcia, Laura DeCrezenzo, Torey Magoo, and Tony Ortega and Mark Bunker and others who have done so much.
When I drank the Kool Aide I believed the lies about Tony Ortega. They were big lies along the lines of the lies told about David Mayo. I thought both were the devil incarnate. But when I came out and actually got the true data on Mayo, he was great! And I have seen Tony Ortega in videoed interviews on TV and read his writings, and this is one great competent professional. He is so knowledgeable and competent about the writing he does regarding the Co$. He is tireless in his work to shed truth and light on it all. I felt so much gratitude and debt to him today for all he has done, that it was unreal almost. He is working hard to bring DM to justice and I thank him for that.
I would like to add that such is the pressure to donate big exerted and such is the cleverness of the mental jockeying, the deliberate pressing of the “Don’t you want to help?” guilt button, and the concept that one OWES back for one’s success in life due to Scientology, that a number of people, myself included, have actually expressed thanks out loud that we didn’t have the money to donate, because if we had, it would be almost impossible to refuse without feeling really bad about oneself. See, that’s the main button, to put someone in a position of feeling really bad within oneself for refusing. Once the regges know how to do this, they gotcha. And, of course, we were all operating at the time with false data and omitted data about the IAS. We believed it was a good, honest, hardworking organization. I know I did, back then.
The cure for this is truth. True and complete data. The truth does set you free, but first, as I think Kate Millet said, first, it pisses you off.
Hallie Jane says
Great comments Aqua, as usual! 🙂
Of course, Bud and Claire are extremely pathetic, but there is a mechanism at work here. I see it in their comm and I’ve experienced it before with others who have donated majorly or actually even in minor ways to the IAS, and to the Ideal Morgues, Libraries, etc. The mechanism is “making self right”. Here’s what I’ve observed:
Someone donates because he was talked into it via big with every button on the console pressed so that he almost couldn’t refuse. He’s glad that the ordeal is over and feels kind of good about it.Yet, in his heart he knows that he was mentally jockeyed into donating what he really didn’t want to donate, and he also knows that he could have said “No” if he only had the guts. His new “status”, his pin, the praise, the plaque on his wall, are not enough to really convince him that he did the right thing. So he swaps terminals with those who “did it” to him. He begins to reg others to give big (or anything). All he’s doing is convincing himself, with the thought being, “If others do it, then I was right after all”. And he’ll go on and on about how it changed his life, and opened his space, made him a bigger being, double Xed his production, etc. And some of them are so unaware that they go deep into debt, or don’t pay their taxes because they keep donating long after they can afford it. They can’t get anyone else to do it so they have to keep doing it themselves in order to be right! One man I knew actually bragged about wrecking his credit because of a 20K donation which caused him to incur tax liens for unpaid back taxes. He bragged about this! Just making himself right, that’s all.And the org staff were very willing and eager to tell him what a wonderful fellow he was for doing this. My reply to him was, “That’s amazing”. I was amazed, all right, but not in the way he thought.
To keep the regging machine running new names and levels are essential.
Current mock up:
Patron with Honors: $100,000
Patron Meritorious: $250,000
Silver Meritorious: $500,000 (was $750,000 prior to February 2005)
Gold Meritorious: $1,000,000
Platinum Meritorious: $2,500,000
Diamond Meritorious: $5,000,000
Patron Laureate: $10,000,000
Forget this “Mega” Crap they need something with some real punch.
I predict a new level will surface soon:
Unobtainium Meritorious $20,000,000
We know from the movie Avatar that Unobtainium will soon be the most valuable mineral in the Galaxy. Since the bridge to total freedom is really just an idea and doesn’t exist anywhere, I’m thinking the name is apropos.
Hallie Jane says
Ohhhhhhh! So the IAS is what makes big beings! So I don’t have to bother confronting my case, or challenging my brain to learn the tech, and…….the worst of all!…….to confront another person’s nasty case and audit them. I’m so glad because I’m a lazy ass and a whimp. I just want to throw cash at it so I don’t have to actually help a person, because I’m by far, too big a being to lower myself. Who cares what those great people are doing with the money, I’m an extra large big being now and I no longer concern myself with such trivia. I love humanity, it’s just people I can’t stand.
Right, Hallie, its the IAS that makes big beings! Very good on finally getting that all sorted out! And then, poor LRH, you know, he just doesn’t make the grade as a big being. All LRH did was create the tech, but not having ever been an IAS member, well – sorry…
David Mi$scavige write a dictionary? From the reports we have heard from those who have worked in his vicinity, without his Sherman-speak teleprompter to guide him every other word is an expletive. The transcripts we have read of his “off the cuff” talks are incoherent babble. And he is going to direct the creation of an actual DICTIONARY? I can only imagine the definitions………
Auditing (noun)- “the act of cornering PCs in a little room and then punching them until they cognite.” (from confidential LRH def. notes researched and compiled by DM)
I’m sure the new Tech Bulletins volumes also contains a magickally ‘found’ and ‘restored’ HCOB from LRH (Written during the early ’50’s when he wasn’t using meters) which contains
the 100,000% ON SOURCE definition of an F/N, which as we all know, is three pin to pin swings of the needle…..
Jane Doe says
In Davie’s new Tech Dictionary will he define the text message of
Someone had a bit too much Kool-Aid.
Idle Morgue says
” They take these small amounts of funds (compared to the dollars used by psychs and pharmaceutical companies) and create HUGE effects”.
That is a lie – they use all of the money to hire private investigators and attorney’s to stop anyone telling the truth about the cult!
Well, they spent tons of money on several high powered attorney’s that had their asses handed to them on a silver plater by a Judge in Los Angeles today – thank you Laura D for taking on the cult and winning after 4 years. You delivered a huge blow to David Miscavige’s scamming cult!! YOU CREATED A HUGE EFFECT LAURA – thank you!! Take it all the way and smash that cult into dust!
Dirk Niblick says
What really saddens me is that apparently now, they are even beyond trying to show evidence for HOW the IAS is “so effective on the fourth dynamic.”
At least in the past, we’d get some bogus fake stat or some BS about a VM program.
Scientologists, just give me your money instead. It’s called the Human Fund: “money for people.”
(Ever seen that Seinfeld episode?)
Love it Mike. Can’t quite decide where I get the most laughs: your daily contributions or the fabulous OTVIIIisgrrrr8. Both are slightly incredible but the more you know, the more plausible they both seem. Poe’s Law – where there is no distinction between actual religious utterings and parody of same.
Madora Pennington says
This letter is creeping me out. Are these two in a destructive cult?
Message here: ALL GLORY BE TO THE CULT LEADERS. WE GIVE THEM EVERYTHING AND ANYTHING. WE ARE NOTHING.
WHAT “huge effects” against psychs and pharmaceutical companies are they referring to??! The psych’s stats and the fanatical drugging of Americans have been SOARING for years. The IAS and CCHR dropped the ball long ago. Please, Bud and Claire, share with us the huge progress you’ve witnessed. Can you even spell “integrity” ? Obviously not. But the Demented Midget looks at you, chuckles, then sneers and says, “Delusional! “
You are so right, Ron. Acceptance of anti-depression and psychiatric drugs is up dramatically. Psychiatric stats are soaring!
Now Obamacare MANDATES that ALL insurance plans have quite broad mental health benefits. Every one of us Americans must pay for psych drugs now! One of the reason insurance companies are now cancelling lots of people is because those plans don’t meet the “standards” under Obama care, including mental health benefits.
I find this sad, Claire and Bud are probably very nice people. The IAS’s sales technique is to bully and to make wrong, and to throw in some lame flattery, B &C more or less tell how they were “regged”
” there are brilliant people who are the management of this organization. They take these small amounts of funds (compared to the dollars used by psychs and pharmaceutical companies) and create HUGE effects. Bud and I do not create this large of an effect as the IAS does on the 4th Dynamic. So to truly be responsible and fulfill our hat of a Scientologist we continue to create wonderful effects at our level and let the IAS create HUGE effects across the planet through the funds we donate. The IAS makes us BIG BEINGS creating effects at the orders of magnitude we should be doing as Scientologists.”
You can be sure the ias regges were pummelling them with these lines for god knows how long. Maybe the grammatical errors are the result of the confusion and hidden upset of having been fleeced so well. PTS people make mistakes.
C and B are not the target here. The one policy they forgot in all of this is “Look dont Listen”. They should have said “yeh, show us, show us these huge wins, give us some sort or breakdown as to where the money goes and what are the results (that I can see)?”
I have never requested or contracted to the church to spend money on worthy public causes (whether true or false) on my behalf, esp. in view of the fact they refuse to disclose the books so I can assess the value and effectiveness of my donations, and whether I ought to support them or continue to do so. Awarding status’ is a detraction from the real issues at hand. Secondly, I decide if, and what cause I want to support at my discretion without any input from anyone if I do not desire it.
My fees pay for Scientology services, and I have no other agreement, contract or implications for anything else. Should however other hidden strings exist that require me to finance dozens of church projects, then this needs to be announced front and center and the exact reasons why necessary in order for me to attain the highest levels of the Scientology Bridge. I realize “Participation of the Being in Scientology” is a criteria to be invited to the OT levels, but nowhere does the founder state one must continuously contribute to various donation schemes.
IAS is not any part of Scientology, nor ever made mention of by the founder. It’s a separate organization entirely which collects and spends the donations of the parishioners of the Church of Scientology without furnishing accountability. Thus any events or other activities in respect to this organization are irrelevant to those participating in church spiritual services and want no part of any influxed donation machinery.
one day they too will be on this blog, saying how embarrassed they are for having thought the IAS made them “big beans”.
I’ll never regret jumping off the Bridge to Total Giving.
…and back on to my of spiritual freedom at FZElma. With Ron’s Bridge. Where the Certs actually mean something. =)
Peter Gibbons says
Thanks so much for the invite BudBuz and Claire! This sounds like a great event that I would never dare miss. Unfortunately, I was blessed with a marginally sane mash of brain matter that sits atop my lanky shoulders. I supposed I could still donate . . . I’m on the fence between 1) forking over cash to The Emperor COB 2) investing my cash on the unlimited potential offered by one of the many multi-level marketing companies out there, and 3) blowing my head off. It’s a real tossup. It does sound like fun, though. Good luck with clearing the planet. This event should certainly do it. If not, the next one. Or the next one. Or the one after that.
Fuck. Ing. Hell.
Do these people ever proofread anything before they hit “send?”
The fact that this is actually happening – this seems like something out of a “meltdown” movie – and that it could actually elicit a donation should terrify all who believe in the power of brainwashing.
This is scary shit.
I sorta get the impression that Bud and Claire are overwhelmed by the IAS’ version of an R6 implant.
Basically what they say is “we are such teeny tiny lil’ thetans that we can only create insignificant effects of little or no importance while the IAS is so powerful and mighty and can create big effects etc….”
Gee I wonder where that is on the “Cause Scale”?
Personally I think their provisional OT certs should be canceled and they should go back to the Comm Course. Never mind objectives.
Yeah sure Big Pharma and the Shrinks make big bucks but most of it is subsidized by taxes which teenie tiny beings like Bud and Claire now religiously (literally) have to pay thanks to the “Secret Closing Agreement” brought to you by the wonderful IAS.
I guess the duality and the irony escapes them.
Tax reform probably would have gotten a better deal but that op was rolled up when those “tax cruds” or the “Infernal Ravening Service” (as Ron affectionately called them) became our “friends” , which supposedly ended the “War” and we achieved “Victory” that tasted more like defeat.
But I digress….
I’ve seen that “dictionary”( it was released as a”Pilot ‘dictionary'” at ASHO) and my advice to anyone lurking here who still happens to be “in” is hang on to that “old” Tech Dictionary and don’t let the Fahrenheit 451 team from RTC anywhere near it.
Aside from the fact that is almost is as badly written as the teenie teams email is fact that it is a tour de force in false and erroneous data though I guess it would be useful as a door stop if it ever is released broadly.
I enjoy your posts here buddy. It’s been a long time.
Been too long Valkov.
Drop me a line archangel88(at)hushmail(dot)com and we’ll do some catching up.
i cant join scientology because im useing my money to build a starship to search for and free lord xenu…and when he returns to earth his first stop will be clear water..to stop tom cruise from getting super powers!!!
Jose Chung says
Actually your money is a good investment spent building a Starship.
I had a client who did this ( it didn’t fly) He put it on a trailer and parked it
in front of Pizza joints. Got paid $2,000. per week because it pulled in customers for Pizza.
Had flashing lights and gizmos, looked like it was almost real. Real cash cow.
Ronnie Bell says
“Platinum Meritorious”, and that half-way intelligible gobbledegook is the best English that woman can manage?
Lord have mercy, she’s probably never even done the Basic Study Manual, let alone KTL/LOC or the Student Hat. Hell, she sounds like she never even made it out of junior high school.
They’re scraping the bottom of the barrel now, folks. All the good stuff is gone.
I had good grammar in 6th grade, because it was taught. Our 6th grade teacher would have had a red-pen field day with this. Kind of sad, but then I’ve observed a number of Scientologists (still in) being very proud of their ignorance, not considering it important at all.
Jane Doe says
Yep, Pepper, you speak sooth. And Grant Condom (Cardone) is one of the biggest flaunters of bad grammar and spelling and literacy. It saddens me to see amongst the Corporate Scn’s the prevailing attitude that you don’t need no stinkin higher education cuz if you just apply Ron’s Green on White, you’ll be more successful, more upstat, more richer (sic) than anyone else and you’ll have riches beyond your wildest dreams. Well, in the words of counselor Phil McGraw, “How’s that working for you?”
Off topic: Has anyone actually seen Miscavige lately? People act as if he’s still there but …
Chris Mann says
I’m betting at some point he will go into hiding if he hasn’t yet. That will be a solid indicator that things are imploding. Events wont come off and things will get weird. That may be what is already happening.
I think he doesn’t know what to do. He’s destroyed anyone he could have trusted and is surrounded by cowed and ill associates.
Jose Chung says
To Chris Mann,
I wrote up a diagram on how an implosion takes place on lines
then explosion. Sent it up lines, yes it was a huge Flap.
I believe we are seeing the implosion of Scientology under Miscavige.
Like Siagon in April of 1975 when “White Christmas” by Frank Sinatra
starts playing on an endless loop over and over on AFR, this time on Cleawater Radio,
look for Helicopters landing on the roof of the Sandcastle and Oak Cove.
There will be a signal for the RTC to run for the hills.
IAS = HUGE effects ??? LOL
If it sounds to good to be true, IT IS! Boy were we lied to.
Wonder how much commission they are on? I presume they are “IAS FSMS” from the false gung-ho “enthusiasm” (sic) they are blathering on about? Either they are “IAS FSMs” or they are complete fools (or both) who have lent a treasonous hand to those that have turned and destroyed LRH’s legacy into becoming some sort of collection of swindlers and those they swindle. Fortunately we still have most of the tech.

Billy Windsock says
We should go easy on these people, they will be out soon, along with the few thousand still trapped. They will need to know that life can be good in the real world, especially when your friends don’t keep demanding huge sums of money to be your friend.
“they will be out soon”…… I believe you are correct Billy. With what is obviously a generous,
if confused and introverted spirit, they (major contributors) may still desire to effect real help. Imagine ( Lennon ! ) if they saw fit to establish some type of “halfway house” or real world job training for our SO friends that didn’t have the means to leave before. They could get out, get “clean” and work their way back into a productive life along their own purpose lines, which may or may not include Scn. For the greatest part, these staff are gifted, loyal and productive souls that many of us owe a great part of our freedom to. Perversion has enslaved their lives and I truly can’t imagine how their recovery will evolve. I know mine is ongoing and I had nothing of their level of experiences. I say to those who want to donate,
” your help is desired and welcomed and let’s put it where it will actually do what you intended for it: help bring sanity to the world!”
Why we LOVE the IAS and donate profusely to the causes of our Association is because there are brilliant people who are the management of this organization. OMG are you kidding me….”brillant people” LOL
I’m a never-in and the majority of the time I do my very best to sympathise with the Scientologists still, as they’re victims too.
However the stupid is so intense in this that I’m really really struggling.
This merely indicates how much they need saving.
Chris Mann says
People and IAS Reges.
Chris Mann says
They are going to Clear the Planet by being nice to people.
People andIAS Reges.
John P. Capitalist says
The best part is where they lead off the pitch for giving more money by saying, “Why we LOVE the IAS and donate profusely to the causes of our Association is because there are brilliant people who are the management of this organization.” In other words, we are donating because His Imperial Awesomeness is the most inspiring guy, the guy who gets it done, the man with the plan. All that other stuff like trying to make a difference in the world is second fiddle. The main reason is to support Mister Wonderful.
Success Stories now include sentences to stroke Miscavige’s weak ego. “we LOVE the IAS and donate profusely to the causes of our Association is because there are brilliant people who are the management of this organization.” So sad.
Oh.my.f**king.god. My brain just exploded.
I have no idea what this stupid woman is trying to say. It feels like
“The IAS is so awesome and I get warm and fuzzies thinking about it”
but the words … the words just don’t hang together the way words usually do …
If English is a second language for them, then it’s not too bad. However, if it’s their primary language, then they should read much more often. Because even if one only reads often, without any formal education, they would still be able to write better than that.
John Doe says
One common sentiment among these mega-donors like the Taylors and David and Bonita Wilson, is that they seem to have a sense that they are unworthy of the fruits of their success, and thus, do not really own their own money and profits.
Whatever benefits they feel they have gotten from Scientology that they have used to create successful careers or businesses, well, they do not really own those gains, but are just leasing them and must continually pay for them.
This kind of mindset (mindfuck) has been fabricated for them and kept in place by those very regges that return time and time again for another shearing. Indeed, the whole corporate church experience is packed with needing to ask permissions, with having to write CSWs to be allowed to do things, with getting in trouble for being late to course, or even reading this very sentence on the internet. You are never grown up enough to be allowed to make these kinds of choices by yourself, and by extension, own your own things like your bank account.
But this is the mindset of a propitiative child, not that of a powerful, independent spirit.
If that is the state of being that you are in, it is little wonder that your success story has childish mistakes strewn throughout it.
Jane Doe says
Well said John. And the whole ruin thing continues up the Bridge. They reg you as if something is wrong that only auditing will fix. They never assume that you are right, you are big, you are doing fine spiritually. If they did grant you that beingness, their meal ticket would dry up.
I would add to this the fact that the church has a vested interest in its parishioners being dependent upon auditing. I know individuals who go running to the org for a session for any little mishap in life. I jokingly say they are addicted to auditing, but I think there is some truth in that.
This operating basis, to some degree, is supported by LRH with “Handle it with auditing”. I have to ask – when will the individual handle life itself? This is where it counts. They seem to have the notion that if they address it in session it is “handled”. Never seeming to realize the situation occurred in the third universe (as well as your own). But rarely do I see them address the situation outside the auditing room.
I’m 180 degrees from my friends; as I went up the Bridge I expected to need less and less auditing.
Jane Doe says
Stat Push, I loved your comment. Your viewpoint that as you go further and further up the Bridge, you should need less and less auditing is very true. “Cause over life” means not being dependent on auditing. But alas, you are in the minority with that viewpoint. I can’t tell you how many OT VIII’s I’ve seen running back to Flag, to the Ship, etc for “review auditing.” Several I know are having illness/body problems and they withhold themselves from being seen or going in public when they do…. have to keep alive the hidden standards of what OT VIII’s are like …
And one OT VIII I know just returned from Ship and within weeks went to Flag for review cuz “not doing well.” Oh, and here’s the irony, one OT VII comp had a husband who was stalled on the Bridge, not moving for years, possibly disaffected, but who paid for his wife’s full Bridge all those years. She made it through OT VII and went to the Ship and was denied OT VIII “because your husband is not moving on the Bridge (or maybe it was more firmly stated that he was “disaffected”). So they wouldn’t let her do OT VIII. Things have really changed.
I remember another OT VIII who attested several years ago to it, whose husband was never a Scn at all and he paid for all of her Bridge. She was given OT VIII in spite of her husband being a non Scn. So things have changed. For the recent VII who was denied OT VIII because her husband was not moving or was suspected to be disaffected, he was good enough to suck money from all those decades, but not good enough to let his wife be admitted to OT VIII. They shouldn’t have taken his money from him if that’s what the church thought about him.
Hallie Jane says
Interesting comment John. I think all the unnecessary sec checking and picking over overts excessively, adds to this mind set. It promotes introversion and the idea that one is never good enough. When your beingness is reduced to big, fat, degraded, overt commiter, a condition of normal is hard to imagine.
Great post, John. One of my biggest cogs in auditing was simply “My wins are MINE! My cognitions are MINE!” They didn’t belong to scio, to Ron, the auditor, the C/S or anyone else. Once I got that settled, I was on my way out.
Gayle aka TroubleShooter says
nail meet hammer; that was so well said John.
It was the 11th Maiden Voyage Anniversary in ’99 – From INT Scientology News, Issue 11.
SNEAK PREVIEW OF UNABRIDGED SCIENTOLOGY DICTIONARY
“If we’ve said it before, it bears repeating – the single most vital factor in planetary clearing is the speed with which we train auditors.” And as to that, he spoke of something Scientologists have been anxiously awaiting: the truly gargantuan task of producing the unabridged Scientology dictionary.
He went through the extensive research done to determine exactly what words would be included in the dictionary, so as to make it totally complete and not having, as he put it, “students leaving course packs and diving into encyclopedias or volumes of dictionaries in the hope of defining a word or chrase. That, in turn, means time lost training as an auditor, and especially when lost in a word chain the length of your arm.”
But more than just a mere word count, this dictionary will contain concise definitions of every specialized word, phrase or idiom LRH used to convey a concept – as well as all “hard to find words” which were compiled from lists receieved from every Academy!
Additionally, he noted, the dictionary will be fully illustrated, and will include an appendix with illustrations of all of the things of Scientology including a schematic view of the E-meter, the eight dynamics and much more.
As to how massive this project is, there have been at least 25 people on it, for four years. And when completed, this dictionary will be approximately 2,000 pages.
“So there’s your last word in tools for the study of Scientology,”said Mr. Miscavige. “And, yes, this one is the final frontier in speeding comprehension of Scientology materials and auditor training!”
Wow! Fourteen years later…still no dictionary. And since then, the Basics and ACCs have been released. On top of that, there are all the new GAT II materials = Course packs, Tech Vols, OEC, Academy Materials, Study Tapes and SHSBC that have yet to be released.
If the dictionary was anywhere near completion in ’99, it would have to be updated and re-written with each release to keep it current.
In the new Images of a Lifetime book, you can see the four-volume monstrosity sitting there on the shelf….Empty bindings no doubt? How do you sell 2,000 page dictionaries at probably $700 or more, if they’re over a decade old and out-of-date?
Is suspect that with DM single-handing the ship as he is, there’s little hope of this project seeing the light of day, much like the 100+ R&D set, which petered out at volume 16 around the same time. If and when they start issuing them again (which seems unlikely), they’ll have to start those over,too – Taking into account all of the lectures ‘discovered’ and ‘restored’, since. The original set died at volume 10, so you can pretty much guess how this is going to go….
So much for “speed of auditor training!”
Mike Rinder says
Oh, what a good find Jeff.
I knew it was at least 10 years ago that Mr Magnificant had announced the dictionary was nearly ready….
Thanks. Good to hear from you….I’ve been following you and Marty since you blew, and I’m really impressed how you two have kept your nerve. I’ve also very much enjoyed thinking of the COB ranting like a nutcase and going out of his mind trying to think of ways to neutralize the pair of you.
I kept the magazine specifically for this bit, thinking to myself, “I’ll never live to see the day when….”.
Based on that photo of the new LRH Library in the back of ‘Images’, it seems like he’s got about 100 years worth of stuff to release, which to me means doling out a few scraps at a time, doing library campaigns for all of them – You know, “We can’t stop until every library on the planet has a copy of the Study Tapes…Pay full price and donate 1000 copies today!”
I’m actually quite surprised that he didn’t try to pull off a donation campaign with the ACC’s. Must not have wanted to press his luck.
Plus, there’s the new meter and it’s related materials that have to be accounted for in the dictionary.
DM just continues pulling in work on himself, after all, he’s the only BB (Big Being) capable of handling all this…Pretty much everyone else at INT being an SP after all.
If you do some guesswork (attempting to be conservative), and try to figure out how much all of this new stuff might turn out costing, it’s pretty astronomical:
Tech Vols – Looks like 20 vols now, so $3500?
OEC – $3000?
SHSBC – 15 binders maybe – $4000?
Meter – $4500
Dictionary – $700?
Plus Academy Lectures, miscellaneous lecture sets like Model Auditing Tapes, and the training sets that have to be repackaged – Pro TR’s, Upper Indoc, Metering, PTS/SP, Group Auditing tapes, Asisits, etc.
To me, the most ironic part of all this is that the poor saps are still willing to pay these kinds of prices for the ‘invaluable tech’ when it’s being manufactured for virtually nothing by slave labor in the publishing house that their ‘donations’ paid for in the first place.
Ball-parking it, I’d say it’s worth $25K or more and therefore impossible/improbable to release all and once and make it saleable, except to the celebs. Add onto that the orders-of-magnitude increase in audting costs, and you’ve got a fool-proof formula for a bankrupt public. If they choose to stick around after hearing the breakdown.
My best guess is that GAT II just won’t happen at all, ever, what with his impending court appearance coming up and all. If he’s smart, after all of this stalling and BS, he’ll settle with Monique out-of-court so that the inner-workings of his little scam don’t see the light of day. On record at any rate.
Will be fun to watch.
No way would I ever want a dictionary “approved” by David Miscavige – High School drop out, failed auditor, and squirrel who admittedly had trouble comprehending the books LRH issued. I will keep my well-thumbed American Heritage dictionary, Dictionary.com, and (nowadays) internet encyclopedic references for full understanding, thank you. Those silly glossaries that come with the new books/DVDs don’t lead to any depth of understanding or ability to extrapolate; they are rote little fill in the blank answers that often leave one wanting.
It’s a blessing to those still in that he has NOT completed the dictionary project because you can predict the next step would probably be to ban all other references from the courserooms.
I knew I’d been to an event where Davey “Neutron Bomb” Miscavige had announced an unabridged Scientology Dictionary. I just didn’t remember the date or have the dox.
So now we have a new Scientology Riddle:
Q: How long does it take Miscavige to get a dictionary written and printed?
We can tell, just by the number of times that Super Power was announced at Int Events, and how long it’s taking even just this year to get the building open so delivery can begin, that Mr. Perfection tinkers and tinkers and tinkers with things until they’ve been over-tinkered to imperfection.
Imagine what compiling a dictionary is like with a guy like that on board!
Did you ever think of compiling a Scientology Riddle list, Mike?
Q: Why couldn’t the blonde start her solo session?
A: She forgot her meter shield!
Q: Why did the Scientologist insist on getting his heart transplant from a donor who was an IAS reg?
A: He wanted a heart that had never been used!
Q: What’s the two-by-four rundown?
A: A repetitive process that is continued until the pc is flat!
Q: How can the Ethics Officer be sure you haven’t told all?
A: You’re not dead yet.
I got one…
Q. How does a Scientologist become a millionaire?
A. By becoming a billionaire.

Ya just cain’t BE BIG unless ya donate BIG. That’s just the way it is, see. It’s all aboout how THEY are so much bigger than us. All about how THEY got the world by the balls and are shakin it down. All about how we, as little peons in the BIG game are so usless when all we do is go around and help people one-on-one. Why, we’re practically worse than usless without the BIG BIG BIG games being played by the really really really BIG people like darth midget.
Man, he sure has some of these kids sucked right into the hole. I truly hope I get to see the look on their faces when they find out what davey is really doing with all their hard earned money.
Thinking about this…this has been around for quite some time. I can recall a selectee of mine acquiring a bunch of credit cards (regardless of T & C or ability to pay), racking ’em up, all against my advice. When the deed was done, many staff gathered around the credit card machine and hooped and hollered about what a BIG BEING he was. And “ya gotta be OT to go OT”. I stood there in despair. Here were these veteran SO members validating an individual’s ability to fill out an application form (including lying about his financial state) and proclaimed this to be the act of an Operating Thetan. That was the level of DO. Sad.
Of course I justified this, you know, disagree and go free and all that. So, they got his money and he got his “service”, and predictably did not get the expected results, went off-lines, declared bankruptcy and now wants nothing to do with Scn. The EP of RCS.
So, this BIG BEING stuff being pushed for Ideal Orgs or the IAS is a natural progression. It is a successful action that has been used for decades. Only difference now, is the “church” has removed the service part of the equation. Problem solved, no disappointed customers.
The quest for status says more about the parishioner than it does about the church.
Jose Chung says
Spot on reply.
By ” selling status” avoids all the problems of delivering a service for David Miscavige.
The sheeple are told they are a “Big Being” ( shades of Tom Cruise)
This is very 1.1 ( covert hostility)
It will be the downfall of the IAS

^^^ Great comment.
Dan Locke says
I work a lot with English as a Second Language (ESL) students. This looks to me like a fairly well along the way ESL person.
Just like Ron said, often times it’s the small common words that give the most trouble. This level of ESL gives those of us who have English as our native language the most laughs, as they get it SO close, but miss the target just enough to make it, often, funny. If you went out to dinner with this woman and talked about anything, it wouldn’t be long before you’d be busting your gut with laughter.
Well, it’s pretty unlikely that she and her husband are going to invite any of us out to dinner and dancing, and, I know that, since she is “Corporate”, she’ll likely get little pity here, so I’m not going to try to persuade anyone agin’ giving their rant.
I just thought it might be good to have my perspective of that one aspect.
Sadly, English does become a second language to Scientologists this deep in the muck. It was mentioned by a previous poster that Buz and Claire Taylor, very typical American names, have been involved in CoS in California since 1974 so it’s very likely they are native English speakers.
I am serious about US/UK/AUS natives having ESL after decades in the CoS.
Ronnie Bell says
English does become a second language to Scientologists this deep in the muck.
I’ve been a Scientologist for forty years, and have better expressive ability with English (my native tongue) than ever. Mike speaks pretty well, as does Marty, for that matter. Your claim is a generality.
Odd Thomas says
“English does become a second language to Scientologists this deep in the muck.”
SunnyV — Scientologists may lose their facility with the English language, but it has little or nothing to do with their connection to SCN and everything to do with their refusal to apply study tech and word-clearing in their lives. Buz and Claire are awash in MUs and Falsehoods. So much so, that they no longer see what’s right in front of them. I agree with Ronnie here – the correct application of the Tech promotes a higher understanding of anything it is applied to.
Claire and Buz (ironic isn’t it, that his name now reflects the mental state, that apparently has overtaken him, and caused him to think and write like a sixth grader) are not Scientologists. They never made the grade. They never got the memo. They are part of a larger sub-class of Pseudo-Scientologists. Those beings who resolved early on and became proficient at, receiving the tech, but not giving it. They manifest a common ailment, known as Left Side of Grade Chart Deficiency.A type of auto-immune illness that slowly but irreversibly dissolves brain cells into a protein mush.
It’s a sad, but inevitable end to those, who just don’t pay attention!
Uh… I’ve strayed too far from the bubble. I no longer understand Bubblese.
I did catch the drift… or something. What I can say is:
To the IAS, size DOES matter.
This is the first time I’ve seen the term Big Beings used for other purposes than to ridicule… oh.
No event in Scientology is beautiful. The aesthetics are just gross and cringe-worthy.
Were I a teacher, I could grade this, but the student will have to re-do the year anyway, so why bother?
They do get an honourable mention for ‘wall of text’. Even if the language used was a little arcane, it is apparent they are quite desparate to get the mesage out. Well done for trying.
Jose Chung says
Wow,. Terminal brown nose itis. The IAS makes us Big Being stuff is straight out of an Orwellian nightmare. The truth is that every fifteen minutes somebody in Europe is electro shocked, The IAS is a series of offshore Bank accounts which from fractions of the interest made on deposits donations are made to enhance IAS PR for more donations to the IAS and that’s all. The real product of CCHR Int. is more Pychiatrists contrary to what CCHR Int will tell you. Read Debbie Cooks email, checkout all of what I say on your own turf, Don’t believe me but believe yourself.
Just Me says
WTF?! Writing inability aside, defensive much? Like Scientologists are getting a little, uh, “ridgey” about contributing to the IAS? Like asking for more and more and more and more money is now, uh, irritating to even the most devoted Kool-Aide drinkers? Like asking parishioners to hurry up and reserve a spot for events that aren’t even on the effing calendar yet is, uh, disorganized, not to mention nuts!
Claire and Bud, why do you do this to yourselves? (Don’t even bother listing on this — the correct item is “Because I’m in a cult.”)
OK I will contribute with some new definitions.
IAS = INTERNATIONAL ASSOCIATION SCAM
COB = CHAIRMAN OF BANKRUPTCIES
MAA = MASTER AT ATTACKS
OSA= OFFICE OF SCORN AND ANTIPATHY
GAT = GET A TRAUMA
And so on. I am sure others can come up with other new definitions to the “unknown date of release” of the new Dictionaries. Pay now…we don’t know when they will be released but rumors say it will be soon… Ah, and be assured the new Dictionary will take your knowledge into a straight up and vertical level.
Barbara Angel says
Hahahahaha Best Definitions EVER best laugh of the day. Thank you.
Gayle aka TroubleShooter says
It’s THE DICTIONARY OF MISSING DEFINITIONS….
Natasha Boris says
Seriously I can’t read this stuff anymore. The grammar and typos are so… it’s… jeez louise, these people would get failed in 6th grade for writing this bad! /barf
I worked with Buz & Claire at Westwood Mission from about 1974 to 1978. Great folks! Hard to believe that they have been in Scn for 39-40 years….
This was a time when we were having fun, delivering auditing hours and training Dianetic Auditors. Other great folks from Westwood Mission were: Peter & Lisa Crundall (mission holders), Don Digalbo, Duncan & Jenae Pringle, Diane (?), Rand Shipley and many more… If anyone knows anything about what has become of these folks, I’d love to hear it. Also there was Sonya Fergeson Jocques, but I have no comment about her. My mother always said “if you don’t have anything nice to say…”
In the 80s, Peter Crundall (with Lisa along, iirc) was touring the US with the Sea Org folk, giving talks to Class IV staff/public on the good ol’ days with LRH in the 50s. It was of course just a reg’ing tour for either Flag or AOLA … but it was fun to hear the stories.
Richard Grant (@richardgrant) says
Oh dear: “…application of the tech on our employees and customers and family and friends.”
These folks must be VERY popular.
Cooper Kessel says
Wish someone could figure out when all this wonderfulness is going to happen so I can book my flight and get my accommos before all of the rooms in the greater Tampa area are taken!
I’m starting to stress over this although as I mentioned, I have a load of cash from a sale of real estate so donating to the International ASsholes assn should not be any big deal. I just need to know WHEN …………………………………..Dave. BTW, how is that lawsuit in LA over the enforced abortion of a pregnant Sea Org staff working out today? Dang it DAVE, I think I’m gonna need some sec checking and auditing to help control all these random thoughts i’m having ……………….. what about you?
Still on your side says
Cooper Kessel, if there is one statement guaranteed to get an “all hands on deck” effort to learn the identity of someone posting here or a few other places it is the statement “I have a load of cash from a sale of real estate so donating …..should not be a big deal.” Woosh, that is the sound of car loads of tired, sad people rushing out the door desperately hoping that they will find you so they might be able to get more than two or three hours of sleep this Wednesday night. Sad, sad, sad, whoever commits their lives to fundraising? Yet every single cult out there turns bright young people into worn out hags trying to raise money for an egomaniac who lives in luxury while they eat crap, live in crappy houses, and live crappy lives with little sleep and even less joy. How many of these sad people are Bud and Claire bringing to their “PHENOMONAL [sic] BEAUTIFULLY PRESENTED EVENT”?
Barbara Angel says
Probably none, as the young and beautiful people are, ‘as you put it’ just WORN out..sad, broke, worn out, sad and broke some more and will be lucky to stay in their inferior dwellings and hopefully get some sleep. Bud & Claire sound like they have (by some great stroke of luck), still enough money to be living well??? How does that work, why have they got any money left at all??? Strange huh? Maybe they are not declaring all that they took off other people? Yep, sad…very, very, very sad… To those who know, are Bud and Claire some sort of whales? I’m puzzled as to why these two seem to have money left over or is it just another of the many, many lies that are written on behalf of $cos
Cooper Kessel says
It’s not really likely that they have any money left at all. When money is created it is “loaned into existence” and that is done by using credit cards, taking out 4th mortgages on your house, taking a business loan (advance on your line of credit) and so on.
What it really means is that you are in debt and the COS loves to have you as a debt slave. And they work to be sure you are indebted to all things Scientology, esp indebted to Him for all He does to keep your eternity guaranteed.
Speaking of Him ……..yo Dave …………I noticed that Laura’s court thingy yesterday worked out pretty good for you and your cohorts!!! Looks like a trial will be on tap to determine the truth about your forced abortion policy with children in the Sea Org. Are you going to appeal it ………………..again?
Rermember Dave, if you need cash, call me per my comment above. Give your fleecers (sorry, I mean IAS Registrars) my number: 209-532-1123. We can talk. Even better, send them to my door …….. you have the address as they have been here before but is is best if they arrive before 11:00PM at night.

Hmmmmm…..lemme hoed a quota, lemme hoed a nikka, we be donatin fo da cawz. Yew don’t donate Imma busacapinyo ass. Is that what she is tryin to say? I guess KTL didn’t take do back to objectives for her.
Forrest Crane says
By my definition, that’s theetie-weetie.
The stupid! It burns! Halfway through the letter and I have to stop and take a break.
They brag about their communication. I’m going to need a ouigi board to figure out what they’re trying to say. “Oy, vey!” Is right.
Is never ceases to amaze me how the debasement of the English language and the higher one moves on the Bridge correlate with such beauty in any “success story” penned by an Operation Thetan. Is writing like a five year old a result of the Scientology experience?
Rick Mycroft says
It reads like they have an affect rather than an effect.
Mrs Libnish says
Being a fellow grammar Nazi, I had the same thought. 🙂
sets guy says
Thanks for the invite to the ball, Bud and Clair. But, I’d rather spend the money flying to Texas for a seat in the Comal County Courthouse. THAT will be a real event.
I agree! Fuck I’d rather spend the money on a Bangkok lady boy shaving my balls with sandpaper! That would be less unpleasant & painful an experience!
I used to set up the events so I wouldn’t ever have to sit through them, even as a staff member in a superIdealOrg. I’d push play and sneak out when the lights dimmed.
Gayle aka TroubleShooter says
had to put my coffee down fast before I spilled it all over me!!!!

That was hilarious, but so true!
