    Going Clear: Scientology and the Prison of Belief

    April 13 2015

    HBO’s investigation into the Church of Scientology has been racking up so many views since it debuted just two weeks ago that it’s likely to trail only the 2013 movieBeyonceas the network’s most-watched documentary of the past decade, the Associated Press reported.

    Scientology leader accused of having father followed by private detectives
    Scientology head's father was spied on, police report says

    April 8, 2015

    For 18 months private detectives tracked every move made by the father of David Miscavige, leader of the Church of Scientology, as they eavesdropped, spied on his emails and planted a GPS unit on his car, according to police records.

    The church paid the two detectives $10,000 a week through an intermediary, the records indicate, all because Miscavige feared that his father would divulge too much about the organization's activities.

    The episode, detailed in documents obtained by the Los Angeles Times, is the latest in a decades-long series of allegations that the church has intimidated, harassed or abused current and former members, at times going to great lengths to dissuade them from discussing their experiences or knowledge of the secretive religion.

    The surveillance of Ronald Miscavige Sr., a longtime Scientologist who had recently parted ways with the church, was described by Florida private eye Dwayne S. Powell, after he was arrested in July 2013 near Milwaukee with two rifles, four handguns, 2,000 rounds of ammunition and a homemade silencer in his rented SUV.

    When confronted by West Allis, Wis., police responding to a report of a suspicious man in the neighborhood, Powell said he was house-hunting, according to the documents.

    Going Clear director Alex Gibney: end Scientology tax exemption

    April 13, 2015

    Documentary film-maker Alex Gibney has written a comment piece for the Los Angeles Times criticising Scientology’s tax-exempt status.

    Gibney, who recently made the controversial HBO documentary Going Clear: Scientology and the Prison of Belief, has called for the organisation’s definition as a religion to be revoked, so that it becomes liable for taxation.

    While he does believe that Scientology can be defined as a religion, he claims it fails to act in the way that a religion should, in order to be exempt from paying taxes. One of his key arguments concerns “private interests”, as a religion should not in any way serve the needs of just one individual.

    All of this is interesting, but wouldn't this be a blow to anyone else attempting to create a new religion?
    Say if 10 members from Destee desired to form a new esoteric way of thinking and use the religion moniker for purposes of practicing without persecution or punitive damages?

    • Phil Valentine could start a small community and be free of taxation
    • John Henrick Clarke could have been free of taxation
    • Dr. Ben, Dr. Amos, Dr. Martin Luther King, etc...
    • What if we could figure out a way to use the religious tax exempt clause like these million dollar cults?

    Highly doubt the 1993 decision will be overturned, but it surely will place more pressure on these secret orgs that gain tax free merit simply on the idea of something that they can't even describe themselves.

    Regardless of how crazy the members might be, humans are crazy in general, which is why they find certain groups to comfort or feed into their way to craziness.

    Active Scientologist rarely know anything about anything that's negative about their "org", "tech" or "leaders"... "I don't know about that" is their common trained response to a PTS or negative info.

    Yes, we get caught in stuff like this too. (See Jesse Prince)

    Scions (Scientology peon shills) are commanded to investigate PTS (potential trouble sources) to see if they are doing the "Tech" or not, basically doing the "Tech" means they have to come to a Church of Scientology class and take courses and be monitored while doing the "Tech".

    Again, the implication is to win, and not to take a loss (this is primarily about controlling the course of something, and to not gain translates into a Scion losing a conversation, or something, that doesn't benefit Scientology). Gains move Scions closer up the "Bridge".

    The more they do for Scientology, the faster the go up the "Bridge" as an example of a Good Scientologist.

    But when they have been in it for so long, many feel like "might as well stick around for the long haul".

    Elderly Scientologist Has Been Getting "Auditing" Since 1968


    But what happens to those that are associated with this group, if or when the IRS come knocking to shut down the pyramid scheme and free slave labor camps (volunteer workers)?

    And to think that the reason why many that are "on the bridge" (which some have been on their way to being "Clear" for years) run away with their fingers in their ears at any mention of higher level "Data", is because they are told they will become stricken with illnesses like pneumonia if they were to ever hear something that they were not supposed to hear or know...

    The length and brutality of it all was such that this Confederation never recovered. The implant is calculated to kill (by pneumonia etc) anyone who attempts to solve it. This liability has been dispensed with by my tech development. One can freewheel through the implant and die unless it is approached as precisely outlined. The "freewheel" (auto-running on and on) lasts too long, denies sleep etc and one dies. So be careful to do only Incidents I and II as given and not plow around and fail to complete one thetan at a time​

    Is this part of the scheme to manipulate the "pre-clear" into a long long long process of courses which they in-turn call "religion"?

    This documentary exposes a dilemma that could be exploited within many organized religions, and shows that over time something that may have seemed to be a novel, noble and righteously liberating idea, can turn into a prison of belief.

    As for some of the apparent symbolisms...

    upload_2015-4-18_12-32-0.png


    Could mention many things about the collection of images, but here is a basic rundown.

    Phoenix (mystical "fire bird" that dies and is reborn)
    L Ron Hubbard was in a ritualistic cult with Marvel Jack Parsons... hence, Marvel Comics, etc.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Also, notice the sun, moon, and pentagram (so called star) at the top.
    [​IMG]

    This is based in Zoroastrianism, which some label "Paganism" in the sense that is has been bastardized into various forms.

    Understanding that the so called "Sun" is a star, and a so called star typically emanates its glare in four directions, the five pointed so call star is a symbol not of that which is in the sky, but of something else (wont touch that).

    upload_2015-4-18_12-39-30.png
    Sun, moon, and pentagram, upright unilateral crossing, and two interlocking trilaterals
    All symbols of many modern organized theologies or "magick".


    Scientology uses the interlocking triangle with the serpent (but many more symbolisms).
    This can be presumed that they understand how to manipulate or control a certain element in nature.

    Hypnosis... the so called "snake charmer"
    upload_2015-4-18_12-45-7.png

    The so called Kundalini is the "snake" that is being charmed or entranced
    upload_2015-4-18_12-57-31.png

    But can anything destroy or cage this for the sake of others?
    Of course, it is done every day and the entrancing is a constant obstacle
    [​IMG]

    Advertisements are subliminal messaging to get the person to buy into the system that would offer them something in exchange for currency. The trick is, one soon considers the currency to have real value when it can receive something by giving it away. Look at the symbol above again, and then compare it with the symbol below.

    upload_2015-4-18_13-14-5.png

    Also note the sun moon and hexagram or interlocking triangles (so called star).

    Then look at one of the Church of Scientology seals again

    Here is a book and link to delve into, without having to devote too much time in it


    A Piece of Blue Sky
    Scientology, Dianetics & L. Ron Hubbard Exposed

    Jon Atack

    upload_2015-4-19_16-56-17.png


    Excerpt:

    A Preclear is connected to the meter by two hand held electrodes (soup cans, shown right), closing a circuit through which a small electric current is passed. Fluctuations in the current are shown on the E-meter dial. The E-meter used by Hubbard was designed and built by dianeticist Volney Mathieson. Its primary use was, and still is, to detect areas of emotional upset, or "charge." Hubbard once said that his E-meter compared to similar devices "as the electron microscope compares to looking through a quartz stone."

    http://www.gnosticliberationfront.com/a_piece_of_blue_sky.htm


    The quote from Hubbard can be found in full as seen below:

    The search of this track began some years ago and was conducted sporadically on many preclears. Various instruments such as the electroencephalograph and he police lie-detector, were used to further this search, but these were inadequate and limited for my purposes. Finally, Volney Mathison applied his electronic genius to the problem and invented the Electropsychometer.


    This instrument had a range and ability greatly in excess of anything before known; it compares to itself only in the field of physioelectrical mensuration and to existing devices as the electronic microscope compares to looking through a quartz stone.
    As soon as this instrument was turned loose on the problem, the problem ceased to exist. By adding up and checking probabilities on scores of persons, the character, extent and content of the whole track was mapped.​

    From the Foreword within the book, Scientology: A History of Man

    Basically Hubbard claimed the E-Meter was the best thing since sliced bread when it came to gauging electrical responses from the body and the mind.

    Here is a reveal of what the E-Meter is, or is not
