Early Scientology Scams
This Could Have Happened in GLENDALE

Scientology's doublecross

Forward: Much of the profoundly insane quack medical scams that L. Ron Hubbard came up with and used to create his http://www.crackpots.org/">"NarCONon" and "Volunteer Ministers" fake fronts to sell to the public were predicated in his ritual sex magic exploits with Jack Parsons, OTO adhearant. The drugs, alcohol, and mental problems that Hubbard suffered from until his death are also an integrated part of Scientology's "Volunteer Ministers" scam.

I like everyone else have been reading about Tom Cruise and Scientology lately so I thought I would share this about some stuff I bought!

I like to go to garage sales. I read a lot and will read just about anything. Anyway a couple of years ago I went to this garage sale in Kalorama. They had a bunch of Scientology books and stuff there. They said that a Scientologist lived there and left all of this when she moved away. They had several boxes, I got them all for $10!

Now there's some strange stuff in there. There are books that talk about the ideas of L. Ron Hubbard. Apparently he thought all illness was psychosomatic. He has a lot of odd ideas about how to cure illness using this thing called an e-meter. There were pieces of one of these in the boxes, it is a machine you hook up to someone with wires like a lie detector.

There were also courses, and those were very interesting. One e-meter course said that thought has mass and you can measure it with the e-meter. I never could get it to work but that's really wild, I guess the more you think you gain weight or something? The e-meter has a thing on it called a tone arm, I have always wondered if it was part of a scale or something.

I have what looks like an ad for a newer kind of this meter. It says that there are no meters in the implant stations so you should have an extra. Implants seem to have something to do with these aliens bombing. But I do not know how you would take your meter there. I also am pretty sure that you need someone to use the meter on you to measure your thoughts or whatever so you had just better hope a friend of yours turns up in that station as well.

Then there is a course about incidents. They teach that aliens came to earth and blew things up. Your memories of these are why you have psychosomatic illness. Hubbard came along quite a bit after H. G. Welles so I guess you could say something about that.

They have quite a few of these courses on tape. Most of it is Hubbard talking. Sometimes I could figure out which workbook went with a tape and sometimes not. That guy sure did like to hear himself talk. He claims that he invented various atomic things but when I looked to see if he had ever won the Nobel prize he did not. In one tape he says he worked for General Patton but he's not in that movie with George C. Scott. I wonder if that is why Scott did not take the Oscar because Hubbard had said this or something.

Then there is a book and CD called Hymn of Asia. I think that Scientology is somehow connected to some Buddhist or something. That was the impression I got. But I showed it to this guy at a Thai restaurant who is a Buddhist and he said that it was a lot of junk. He said the stuff about Buddhist writings just was not right and that also Buddhists did not believe that a redheaded guy was going to be a prophet. I for one did not care for the music on the CD.

Well that's about all. I put all of this stuff downstairs but it was kind of fun to look at it again. Some of the books have really nice bindings and look good on your shelves. Every now and again I get it into my head to sell them to a restaurant or hotel for decor as I just don't see the use of a lot of what they have to say.

PART 2

Wow I just had no idea so many people were interested in Scientology. I got a lot of emails from people all over the world about it. But I guess you have to admit it is pretty wild stuff and with Tom Cruise it is very much in the headlines.

Just to remind you I bought a bunch of their books and stuff at a Kalorama garage sale.

In the stuff I bought were these bulletins maybe they are internal memos or something like that. They were in a binder with tabs but there was nothing on the tabs but numbers so I donít know why they did that.

L. Ron Hubbard died in 1986 and then the new leader is David Miscavige who used to help Hubbard with this special typewriter. I saw a picture where he and Tom Cruise and saluting each other like sailors would do when they pass by on the street.

There are a lot of these bulletins about Miscavige. One says that Miscavige, also is also called the Admiral, is not the Marcabian Poodle. It says that Hubbard and Miscavige were the loyal officers during the rebellion. That sounds like Star Wars to me but they do believe aliens blew things up. It also kind of makes a litlte sense because in the older stuff they do call Hubbard the Commdore.

I do not know who or what the Marcabians are or were but if they are aliens it is quite odd that they would have a poodle unless possibly they are somehow French. I say that because somewhere in there Iím pretty sure Hubbard was also talking about Napoleon when he talked about this war the aliens had. In one course they have a thing called the Obscene Dog and that is a kind of dog statue. You get trapped inside it by energy beams.

Maybe the Poodle of the Marcabians has something to do with this Obscene Dog. I also thought that maybe the Marcabian Poodle is the real thing that the Obscene Dog is the statue of.

But this Marcabian Poodle is serious as they said you would do rocks and shoals in the estate if you said it. I donít know what that means. Maybe it is like a special Scientology swear word or something. This idea of the Marcabian Poodle comes from the Suppressing Squirrel but they donít really explain what that Suppressing Squirrel is all about. They talked about how this comes from the Manual of Justice but I do not have that book or maybe I just cannot find or remember it. Maybe if the Obscene Dog can trap you this Suppressing Squirrel can force you to swear against the Scientology leaders and they donít much care for that kind of thing. Of course this last part is just my own idea and it may not make sense. It would seem to me that the Obscene Dog would be the one to make you swear and that the Suppressing Squirrel would trap you but maybe these aliens are just doing tricks.

It is kind of interesting that they put out this thing telling you how Miscavige invented this microphone for the stage and that is how you should answer if anyone asks you about Miscavigeís accomplishments. It could also be that this special microphone is for those big stage events they have like the one with Tom Cruise. They said that even though Miscavige dropped out of high school to work for Hubbard he is the most qualified Scientologist on the planet. Thatís their words not mine! There are a lot of these magazines and they do have a lot of these events at various places as well as on this ocean liner that they use. I guess it is in the memory of Hubbard who liked boats that they do this.

But let me get back to the Dogs and Squirrels and such like. There sure are a lot of these alien beings and other things in their different writings. They teach that along with these aliens there are also special beings or something. Some I can find are the Halver, the Grinder, the Wall of Fire and the Weeper. I wonder if this is like marching band where just the drum major has a special name. It would be very hard for me to keep track of all of these things and their different antics.

The Halver is like a ball and one half is black and the other is white. It can fly around and spin around and you get confused from looking at it because it makes an optical illusion or something. At one point a lot of of them hover over some city and everyone in the city falls under their hypnosis.

The Grinder shoots you with rays from a machine with handle you have to turn and electrodes that pop up when the handle is turned and it goes ďbap bapĒ when it is shooting the rays at you. All of the Grinders wear glasses so that their eyes do not get hurt from the electric rays.

The Wall of Fire is something to do with the aliens coming to earth and how it is dangerous to go through the Wall of Fire without the Theta Tone which seems like it is headphones to keep you from hearing these other aliens who tell you different things. They say that you can really get hurt if you go through the Wall of Fire without this Theta Tone. The Wall of Fire and Theta Tone do not seem to be aliens but they are certainly depicted as actual things so thatís why I included them here.

But you know now that I have looked at these and meter pieces are lying out and I see the Tone Arm of the meter now I just really have to wonder if this has something to do with the Theta Tone. I guess that just goes on my list of questions about all of this stuff.

The Weeper makes me sad. They say she is a mommy alien and her babies are all either killed or kidnapped by the bad aliens who seem to be friends with the Grinders and so on. She sits by the water and cries for them. One book says she does this for a trillion years. I do not like this story and it bothers me to think about it too much. If Hubbard and Miscavige fought these Grinders and could make the Theta Tone donít you think they should have done something about saving the mommy alienís babies?

But there is also one of these types of aliens that I kind of like. They are mentioned in one of the courses along with some other aliens. There is also a whole bulletin about them and from the wording you get the idea that this is current stuff. They are called Blinkers. It says that they are like little cats and you can only really see them if you have eliminated your reactive mind. Once again, that is something I do not completely understand about Scientology. What they do is hop on your head and hurt you. It says that they never like to go on the floor which is kind of like a real cat. They jump on you and then they jump on someone else. Sometimes it seems like they jump and in one lecture it says that they can teleport or something around. Maybe the last part is why they call them Blinkers? They have an incident where some of these Blinkers show up attack a whole room full of people and never once does even one of them touch the floor.

This kind of reminds me of the Halle Barry Catwoman movie where she makes her bed up on a shelf.

But the bulletin goes on to talk about this place called the Golden Studio. Apparently Admiral Miscavige and some of the other leaders of Scientology live there. It seems like it is out in the desert somewhere but then again it also seems like it has something to do with ships.

But anyway there is some part of it called the Messenger Berth and everything is on the floor there. That is to say there is nothing high up and certainly no ledges so the windows are set flat into the walls. This bulletin says that if you go there you should know about this as you will most likely have to sit on the floor and some of the rooms have low ceilings and special doors like you would see in a submarine movie. They believe that the Blinkers want to come and attack the Admiral.

It says that they have what they call a lot of mock up rooms. In these rooms they do have high shelves. On each high shelf they said that they put a big mousetrap underneath a large piece of silk. Sometimes they say that they have a person wear the same kind of uniform as the Admiral go to these rooms. They have pictures of him and it is a very nice blue uniform with lots of brass buttons and the like. But the idea is that then the Blinkers will go into these mock up rooms. They will jump up and get trapped when the mousetrap lever flies through the silk. I do not know what they do with them after that.

They tell you this so in case you are visiting you will not get confused if you see a lot of people looking like the Admiral or suddenly wonder why he is going into a dangerous room. They say that if you are there for the Admiral Hat then you should stay in the low room or maybe that is the same as the Messenger Berth. There is in fact an Admiral Hat bulletin but it is very much faded. I could read that it is a special invitation and that the Admiral teaches a special course using a special kind of meter. I think they call it that because you get to wear a hat like he does and he is an Admiral. Apparently there is stuff in this course that the Blinkers donít like so they have to be really cautious. It talks about how they check for them when you go there, they look up on your head and shoulders and also if you were carrying a backpack they have to look for Blinkers.

Anyway that is a story that I kind of like. I wish the Blinkers were not bad but if they were good I would not mind having one as a pet as long as they did not mess when they are flying around or whatever they do.

The last thing I am going to write about is the initiation rite they have when they give you the Grade of Clear. They seem to have these things that are kind of like collegiate degrees or maybe they are like being priest and then bishop and then pope.

It is called ďThe Book and the BottleĒ and it is at least pretty interesting. They put you in a room with two tables. On one is a book and on another is a bottle. They tell you to go get the book and look at it. You have to tell them everything about the book. I could not figure out if you have to end up reading it or not. There is something in Scientology about Alice in Wonderland but I cannot for the life of me work out how they go together. I do not know if you have to use Alice in Wonderland for ďBook and BottleĒ of if just any book you happen to have at hand will do for this. Then they tell you to put it down and go to the bottle. You pick up the bottle and describe that for them. You go back and forth until they are happy with you. There is something about not spilling out of the bottle but that is not real clear to me. I read somewhere that the Masons will dunk you in water when you join up so maybe this is along the same lines. I never rushed in school so I could not tell you about that.

So there you go. I am by no means any kind of authority on this stuff. I thought some of the books might be fun to read. It gives you a better idea of what Tom Cruise is thinking. He must have had to read all of this himself and they do talk about how psychiatrists are evil and so on. It says that they are evolved from these grinders and so on. I read something about how one of Hubbardís kids went suicidal and maybe that is where they get this idea as well as the story of the weeper. This is another one of those special things in the bulletin binder you canít talk about without the estateís rocks and shoals but Iím pretty sure Hubbard and his wife got pretty sad when this happened.

A lot of you said I should eBay this stuff. Well I would but thatís a hassle and since I paid like next to nothing for this stuff I donít want anything back. Thereís a guy who runs a museum of this stuff and I have made arrangement to get it to him with the understanding that he will let other people look at it if they are interested.

One last thing and people have emailed about it. If you want to repost this to other boards or put it on your web site, that is utterly fine with me!
