This is a microcosm of so many things inside the shrinking bubble world of scientology.
Selling guy is trying to offload his “OT” bracelet (at a loss of course, anything scientology is ALWAYS overpriced) to get money to do the Purif. Probably REDO the Purif. After all he was “going OT” or was already OT back in 2012. But then of course, the first time he did the Purif it was “out tech.” I wonder if the “success story” from the first, second and third Purif he did was real? Did he actually have the gains he attested to? If he did, why redo it? Simply because it is a way of soaking money out of the dwindling number of remaining sheeple still inside the bubble.
Of course, when Miscavige announces that he has discovered, yet again, that something they have been selling for years or decades is “out tech” (i.e. a shoddy substitute, Condition 1 level “exchange = ripoff) there is never a thought given to “perhaps we should give those people their money back, at least credit their account or offer them the “new” in tech service for free as they actually PAID for a Purif and we didn’t deliver that to them, which is why they have to redo it.
It is also interesting how things have devalued — a “Clear bracelet” or “OT bracelet” was once a symbol of having achieved a prized state in scientology. Now it is merely “bling” — more “MEST” to be traded.
A bracelet worth perhaps $100 in 2012 was sold to this guy for $1848 – “never used” it is now being offered for $1400. Who knows what it might eventually sell for? It’s real value of $100 (14K gold is not very expensive…). In fact, just for shits and giggles here is the first men’s 14K gold bracelet result from Google. And this is being sold by a FOR PROFIT company:
Finally, it is interesting that the seller here wants to be sure it goes to “someone in good standing.” Haha. Why? They don’t want some “fake” scientologist to pretend they have the fake status of OT? Hey, it’s just “bling” so who cares who wears it?
