Note from admin

Pierre Ethier does not endorse any groups , associations and independent auditors unless otherwise specified via private communication. Any arrangements for Case Supervision must be confirmed directly with Pierre, as well as the current status validation of training, certifications and good standing related to ethics, cramming and application of standard tech. Pierre Ethier DOES NOT endorse the delivery of the Ls by other auditors or trainees. Please be warned that there were multiple instances when auditors have been fraudulently claiming that Pierre Ethier is C/S-ing their practice and on few occasions have been fraudulently charging the PC under a false pretence.

Pierre Ethier DOES NOT endorse the delivery of the Ls by other auditors or trainees, this specifically apply to TREY LOTZ whom Pierre Ethier never actually trained on L12 nor L10 after too many flubs,and insisting on auditing pcs that were clearly not setup, (ignoring FLUNKS and explicit interdiction from Pierre as the C/S), in addition to Trey refusal to correct on L11 and on chronically missing witholds on his pcs. Trey Lotz has NOT completed & attested training and is NOT certified by Pierre Ethier to deliver the Ls . According to Trey Lotz he informed his public that Pierre is not C/Sing for him. Karen de La Carriere has confirmed that she has never C/Sed for Trey Lotz nor trained him on the Ls. She has not provided him any Ls materials either.

Pierre Ethier does not engage in the distribution of copyrighted materials, despite of roomers and innuendos from Trey Lotz and his associates.

Field auditors affiliated with the Corporate Church of Scientology deliver auditing up to Clear and typically have NO EXPERIENCE in delivering upper levels .Field auditors refer their PC to the Orgs for 15% FSM commission which they receive for services purchased by the PC from the Church. A field auditor usually comes out in the free field with no experience auditing beyond Clear and lacks the discipline to audit under C/S..

Flag only rundowns (which Pierre studied and delivered – e.g. Original Super Power Rundown, Knowledge Rundown , Case Cracker Rundown , New Vitality Rundown , Fixated Person Rundown , Dynamic Sort-out Assessment , NOTs Stability Rundown, Held Down Seven Rundown, Int. by Dynamics Rundown, Havingness Rundown , The Prosperity Rundown, The Money Rundown, Profession Intensive ) address variety of handlings like money and spiritual difficulties, issues, ethics , case situations and other. The Ls , Flag Only Rundowns [Delivered at Flag Only] , NOTs [Delivered only in Advanced Organizations / Sea Orgs] , Power and Superpower require advanced auditor skills and trained C/S. The above rundowns should not be delivered without the supervision of a trained C/S. C/S training is required as some of the handlings are in the C/S materials. The authentic Flag Only Rundowns materials have not been released in the Free Field.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do you still audit?

Pierre Ethier  is supporting an exclusive and limited circle of public, who maintain ethical standards and are dedicated to standard tech and spiritual advancement. Pierre does not support other practices and discourage mixing practices. Pierre accepts new public only after a case assessment.

Pierre makes any recommendations and discuss further arrangements only after a thorough case assessment with the one who have shown to be truly dedicated to spiritual advancement . 

Can you share the list of the trained Class XIIs?

Below is the list of the trained Class XII.  There are fraudulent claims by people who have not been trained or have not attested.  The names of the auditors personally trained by LRH are well documented in the Apollo Crew List and other documents. The original 8 Class XIIs that were trained by LRH are listed in the following link:

https://pierreethier.wordpress.com/2013/11/19/list-of-the-original-8-lrh-trained-class-xii-s/

The list of all Class XIIs that were ever made was compiled in 1998:

http://community.freezone-tech.info/pierre-ethier/pierre-ethier/complete-list-of-all-class-xii-auditors-ever-made/

Do you travel to provide onsite auditing?

Pierre Ethier no longer travels, his time currently is predominantly dedicated to research. His travels are related only to completion of ongoing cycles.

Can you recommend auditors in my area?

It has proven that in order to recommend an auditor Pierre has to consistently oversee his/hers practice , training and ethical standards. On other hand for every Preclear there are case specific requirements that have to be addressed. Some auditors who are good auditing the lower bridge , might lack training on the upper bridge. For the above reasons any recommendations can be done only after a thorough assessment of the  auditor and additional case assessment of the Preclear , along with consistent Case Supervision.

I am in a need of repair due to bad auditing. Any recommendations?

Often this kind of situation is related to some sort of ethics situation. On one hand the poor choice of auditor shows  low perceptions. It was your responsibility to choose wisely and verify your auditor’s claims and credentials versus actual objective outcomes of his practice. (Reference: Dishonesty cuts persons reach HCO Bulletin 1 May 1985 “Honesty and Case Gain”:

 https://pierreethier.wordpress.com/2013/09/11/dishonesty-cuts-persons-reach/) .

You will have to deal with your personal ethics in order improve your ability to make wise decisions. On other hand auditors that mislead or defraud about  their credentials are out ethics. One example is the delivery of the Ls. Most of the fixes for the Ls are in the C/S materials. This is why the role of the C/S is vital and auditor needs advanced training that has been typically provided at Flag.

I was getting auditing in the Church. I am considering auditing in the Free field. Would I be able to get my folders?

This is a question that you should be directing to the Church.

Do you respond anonymous correspondence?

No. Anonymous exchange is an indication of some sort of ethics situation. Perhaps you should consider resolving it first.

Do you provide assistance with requests for refunds from the Church of Scientology?

No. 

Do you distribute copyrighted materials?

Absolutely not, despite of rumors and innuendos from Trey Lotz and his associates.

What about delivery of the Ls in the Free Field?

The Ls are designed to be delivered by Flag trained Class XIIs. There is a huge difference between a Flag trained auditor and a field auditor. Below is a Quote by Karen De La Carierre , Class XII C/S: 

“I soon discovered that a “Field Class VIII” did not mean a Flag Class VIII. And so I re-did all my internships and then trained up to Class XII…”

Rumors that Pierre has trained Trey Lotz to deliver the Ls are also untrue.  Pierre did attempt to train Trey Lotz on L11 , Trey committed gross auditing errors , refused correction and never sent a video for evaluation, yet made many unreasonable demands. Trey Lotz never attested nor completed Ls training with Pierre. Trey Lotz is a field auditor, never worked in an advanced organization and has mostly experience auditing the Lower Bridge . It is a well known fact that as a field auditor Trey was forbidden per Church Policy to audit any Upper Level Rundowns and OT Levels. He lacked the discipline  and the training to audit under the supervision of a C/S and lacked experience  to address the complexity of the Upper Bridge . There is vital information for the Ls in the C/S materials and for an auditor with no experience in the Upper Bridge to deliver the Ls without a C/S is reckless. In addition many of the  references related to the Ls are in the Class X , Class XI and Class XII materials and Trey is only Class VIII. When Trey Lotz promotes 40 000 hours on the chair , this means that his experience is overwhelmingly  in the Lower Bridge, which is not as complex as the Upper Bridge. L11 was designed by LRH to be delivered in a week , however Trey Lotz was chronically delivering it on numerous occasions in a duration of 4 months. This information is also broadly documented on the internet in various public releases by Trey’s PCs. Additional out tech was present in Trey’s delivery and Pierre wish NO association with Trey Lotz.

A number of Trey Lotz PCs have viciously attacked Pierre and his family on Trey’s behalf , this including attacking Pierre’s child due to his disability or making  other vicious and cruel threats. The very same Trey’s PCs also carried out vast smear campaigns about Pierre and claimed to have  made fraudulent reports to the Church and various government agencies . A PC of Trey claims to have partnered with the Church in attacking Pierre to uphold Trey’s financial interests , claimed to have paid $30 000 to investigate Pierre in order to ruin his auditing practice and take Pierre’s home with intention of unfairly profiting and putting his disabled child homeless, published on the internet Pierre’s bank account and private phone numbers with an invitation  to harass Pierre. This was an organized effort of associates of Trey Lotz in a partnership with the Church to silence and dead agent Pierre in order prevent him from auditing. This evil plot eventually fired back on them.   Such a behavior is practically shameless and  it is sad to see such  EVIL outcome has been produced by a practitioner out of GREEDEVIL is a poor product! We hope that one day the above people will realize that seeking to destroy people of good will (like Pierre) is NOT the road to spiritual enlightenment. This also applies to their enablers and associates. In all cases these PCs were prized and socially rewarded  by Trey Lotz despite of their EVIL  behavior seeking to destroy a person of good will. Good people who had voiced private concerns directly to Trey Lotz , had been also threatened by the very same PCs.

 Trey Lotz NEVER made any advanced payments to Pierre to book or schedule his time and to cover Pierre’s time and expenses with a fair exchange . Rumors and innuendos from Trey Lotz and his associates in that regard are also untrue.  Pierre who spent 20 years in the Sea Org at almost no pay , had covered out of his own pocket many advanced and initial expenses , as well as ongoing expenses related Trey, who had spent his time as a field auditor at the rate of  around $160 000/ year. (based on Trey’s own reports to IRS  for tax exemption 2004 ,2001 – this is exactly like the Church- merely mentioning the facts here! Also  based on Trey Lotz own boosting to have delivered 4000 hours of Ls auditing which amounts to 2500 hours in the last two years or $250 000 per year just from the Ls where around $100 000/year seem to have been unreported to IRS) In one year period alone Pierre provided to Trey in excess of 300 hours unpaid services. 

Below is a quote by LRH that explains that the Upper Bridge should not be misused. This applies for the Ls , OT Levels , Flag Only Rundowns, NOTs and other Upper Bridge actions.

“The lower levels of Scientology are quite innocent. Only the upper grades could be harmful if misused and these are only placed in the hands of experts” L. Ron Hubbard in “ Is Scientology Dangerous”

  • Black Dianetics and/or reverse processing is often done on the person in an effort to cave him/her in. Black Dianetics is used in the free field by auditors who apply processes sourced by the Church to cave in others or to produce fanatic followers. Typically those auditors never been trained to provide the specific level , lack major data from the rundowns. Their unsuspected subjects rave in euphoria but then constantly get stuck on irrelevant issues, enterbualate and get upset easily. Those kind of people become restimulated, simply unstable and easily manipulated. This is how one produce EVIL, promote EVIL and talk mostly about EVIL doing.
  • When an individual continues to vocalize or write about disagreements with Black PR treatment or anything else about evil practices he/she is being subjected to, a partnership of allies will publish mean-spirited propaganda about that individual. That propaganda inevitably contains the fruits of the personal and private communication and the private life of the targeted individual directed into a smear campaign. Seldom is it done with chapter-and-verse, literal detail which could make the opressor legally accountable. Instead, it is done through a sophisticated and complex propaganda methodology. It requires the development of a dark and evil mindset to create this sort of propaganda.
  •  Ralph Hilton had published an open letter as a part of a Black PR campaign to spread the enemy line around the web. Now over a five years later a crowd of stooges related to the Church are glorifying  Hilton’s full admission of having personal attitude problems , re-stimulation and acting out of EVIL. Ralph Hilton wrote: “I attacked you in return – yes it was evil purposes in restimulation and I know that I woke them up to do it.” It is very wrong to do others in. It is wrong to orchestrate attacks out of your own evil. It is even more wrong to freely advertise your evil intentions like it is something that makes you stand out with promoting your evil and appealing to manipulate the crowd of haters to join you in doing evil to others. Evil remains evil , no matter what shape and form it takes. There is no excuse for evil doing! Be aware that very sadly evil propagates to your associates and allies.

It is time to say ” Enough is Enough” of your evil!

We do not want your evil in our lives!

Praetorian and Freedom ( The True Way to Happiness )

Frik Blaauw – Praetorian

Posted on March 4, 2014 by 

Frik & Elma Blaauw

Praetorian!

I was alerted to this blog by an email I received a month and a half ago.

So, there I was – perfectly unhappy with my Church and it’s policies, but thinking I was the only nut around who thought so. I must have an overt on it . . . .

So, I read this site, and Debbie Cooke’s letter. And I blew as much charge as to be gained from a full OT intensive!  I am not nuts!!  I am perfectly sane – and there is a whole world of Scientologists who have identical views to mine on the CoS.

My wife Elma and I officially resigned from the Church of Scientology last week – having had our eyes finally opened after five years of being in disagreement and then doubt with our observations of the church’s management.

Debbie Cooke’s letter was the final straw – and since then I have read many, many similar letters by previously very high ranking members in the church. I can recommend this blog: https://pierreethier.wordpress.com/.

To quote Pierre:
Does it strike you as odd that 38 out of 50 staff members from the last organization that L. Ron Hubbard personally ran himself in St Hill, England (known as “Old Saint Hill”) have been declared “suppressive persons” by David Miscavige and kicked out of Scientology forever? LRH said 2 1/2 percent of the population is suppressive. But according to David Miscavige, demonstrated by his own actual statistics, 76% of the population is suppressive. I used to wonder why so many senior Scientologists got declared.

Resignation of Frik & Elma Blaauw

I, Frik Blaauw, don’t wonder anymore.

Every single person alive who could possibly utter “that is not what Ron said to me personally”, or who wrote up Ron’s notes, has been declared. And so that DM can alter the tech – as he has done already.

I have created the rank of SP – Scientology Praetorian – to those who have left voluntary, and to those declared by the real suppressives, and who will now fight to regain our technology as bequeathed to us by LRH and recognizing him as the only Source of that tech. And I pin this medal on the 18 plus named above in their honour.

They are my heroes.

To those who find that hiding behind nom de plumes be the best current course of action – I can only tell you of the great liberating release of coming out of the closet – so to speak! As is your situation – as is it. It’s great to be free as a result of doing that!

Disconnection? Having the full realisation of being around for some 76 trillion years or so with a fair share of siblings, parents, children and friends, this lifetime’s brief moment in my future is only of consequence if it is to be wasted being the effect of other’s cause.

I reached out to Scientology a decade and a half ago as I too desired to see a new world – sane, without war, criminality. And that means having one’s attention on the future. Not the past.

Finding out what David Miscavige and his cohorts have been doing, and the damages done across the world is there. Fact. Having all that attention on it is wasteful, my friends. Above all that – way above – is the thanks I have of that which LRH gave me and you! And in this brief moment we have been betrayed, yes. So what. So what. Compared to some incidents on my track, this betrayal’s effect is small.

So, my fellow Scientology Praetorians – SPs – let’s get busy and build a better world.

FAD AND FALLACIES IN THE NAME OF THE OT LEVELS IN SCIENTOLOGY

FAD AND FALLACIES IN THE NAME OF THE OT LEVELS IN SCIENTOLOGY

The OT Levels were developed by L.Ron Hubbard after 1966, the year he first delivered the Clearing Course.

OT I through VII were released one by one between 1966 and 1971.

On June 30, 1973 L. Ron Hubbard wrote SCIENTOLOGY, CURRENT STATE OF THE SUBJECT AND MATERIALS, a bulletin where he states: “OT levels as they exist in Advanced Orgs were completed by 68.There are perhaps 15 levels above OT VII fully developed but existing only in unissued note form…”

Many people appear to have never duplicated the meaning of the phrase “UNISSUED NOTE FORM” and expect to find full Bulletins and completed write-up and compilations.

In 1969, L.Ron Hubbard issued a confidential bulletin, which is the only bulletin bearing OT VIII in the title or the distribution.

In late 1978 NOTs was released amid much fanfare and promoted by L.Ron Hubbard as the missing piece of tech necessary to prepare a case for OT VIII.

In 1981 an official Church Directive announced the naming of the OT Drug Rundown as NEW OT IV, Audited NOTs as NEW OT V, Solo NOTs course as NEW OT VI and SOLO NOTs auditing as NEW OT VII. Contrarily to FREEZONE conspiracy theories and disinformation spread by ignorant people that had no information, the Original OT LEVELS WERE NOT CANCELLED at that time. Quite on the contrary the same Executive Directive and a subsequent clarification explicitly stated that the original Levels were to be called “ORIGINAL OT…” rather than “OLD OT …” to avoid technical degrades and that they were not cancelled, but rather to be done after NOTs was completed. In 1984 at Flag, foreign students that could not enroll on the SOLO NOTS because it was not translated in their language were still doing the original OT Levels OT IV-VII. I was even called once to do a review on original OT V and VI. The year was late 1983.

Another false datum dreamed about SOLO NOTS is that “Suppressives have split NOTS and SOLO NOTs into two separate levels. The idea that SOLO NOTS is an entirely different level and to be delivered at FLAG ONLY (as the only place with the resources to deliver it standardly) comes from L. Ron Hubbard himself. Those who complain that their case is suffering from being unable to do SOLO NOTS are simply in need to have their case repaired on the level(s) they were run on, not get into a new level while still being some restimulation.

Confidential issues released in 1982 for SOLO C/Ses and AO Review auditors only clarified, based on LRH recommendation and technology that the ORIGINAL OT IV – VI, levels which primarily deal with clean exteriorization and ability to operate outside a body, were best done after NOTs, because the phenomena that NOTs address can often act as an impediment to getting the full gains possible on those original OT Levels. There is even a confidential Solo C/S ONLY bulletin about the original OT VI that list phenomena subsequently fully described in the NOTs materials, as the major obstacle to getting the OT abilities and stability promised on that level.

It is astonishing to see the number of false data being spread by people who never trained in AO Reviews (NOTs is NOT the same level as AO Reviews and there are over 100 pages of original OT III-VII materials that are not in the courses given to the students nor on the NOTS course, but only in the SOLO C/S and AO Review auditor courses. Most people spreading false data are merely spreading their own speculations based on ignorance.

Contrarily to Freezone hype and propaganda the ORIGINAL OT VII has been continuously delivered at Flag and the AOs by graduates of the AO Review auditor courses to pre-OTs on OT III and who had just completed the level whenever it was adjudicated necessary by the Solo C/S. As an example, between 1982 and 1992 (the year I left Flag) ,I delivered over 25 ORIGINAL OT VII AUDITED RUNDOWNS.(Original OT VII consist of an audited Rundown audited by an AO Review Auditor followed by a Solo step).

Just over a year ago, when I sought to correct the hype being spread by a “popular auditor” and “Freezone Authority” who was boasting about being the first to have audited that rundown since 1982, by politely pointing that I had audited over 30 of those Rundowns between 1982 and 2010, I was instantly attacked by his fanatical followers who still view as a fiend anyone hinting that their idol may be mistaken in any of his utterances.

I have even found out that the same auditor is using a bootleg version of the original OT VII. The version that auditor use is one created by the Church of Eductivism, a Scientology splinter group from the 1970s led by Jack Horner who has been branded multiple times by L.Ron Hubbard as a fiend and master of deception. On that version of OT VII, most processes were not written by L. Ron Hubbard and the approach taken to the level is radically different than the one written by L. Ron Hubbard.

It does not prevent his fanatical followers to proclaim on every roof that they view him as the pillar of standard tech in the Independent field (beside the fact that I have written 3 retrains on him for serous tech alteration and I am still awaiting compliance). Another “FREEZONE AUTHORITY” doing the same thing has built their practice on the hype of having once been trained by L. Ron Hubbard, even though they currently prefer to sell other practices ranging from UFO and Alien Channelling to Shamanism, while still pretending it is Scientology. Sadly they do it because they need the income from the clients they lure in and because those practices require little to no skill to deliver compared to expert C/Sing. The sad truth is that the auditor in question has become incredible rusty on the subject of standard tech is deeply afraid to be found out and therefore pretends to still be a master at it.

FOR THE RECORD: THE VERY FIRST ACTION OF THE ORIGINAL OT VII IS AN ASSESSMENT.

If the Original OT VII you received is not like that, then you most probably received EDUCTIVISM, not Scientology, whatever you auditor thought or may have told you.

THE OT LEVELS BEYOND OT VIII

Contrarily to the multiple statements that were made by the propaganda machine of Marty Rathbun and by his worshippers: The Original OT LEVELS above OT VIII were both created and audited by L. Ron Hubbard and do exist but, as AS STATED MULTIPLE TIMES: “only in unissued note form” These notes typically range from simple LRH session worksheets to hastily handwritten notes similar to “old cuffs” published in the 1950s.

 The truth is that Marty Rathbun was not on tech lines or overseeing them until the late 1990s. If he had been trained on the Ls rundowns, he would know that within exist three mentions by L.Ron Hubbard in the L-10 materials (two in his handwriting, one in a typed bulletin) that L-10 is based on his research and discoveries made on OT VIII to XV. L. Ron Hubbard has never been known to make deliberately false statements in tech materials. Further, I have conversed with several of the people that were responsible for the safekeeping, testing and compilation of the technology during the late 1960s and early 1970s. Each of those individuals independently stated the same thing: they had seen the folder containing the research notes on OT VIII-XV and beyond or some of its content and they confirmed the existence of those Levels. Marty Rathbun has never had conversation with those individuals and in fact they would not even give him the time of day, based on Marty’s track of supporting OSA attacks on tech defectors for well over a decade and his confessed history of physical abuse of people under his command, not to speak that he was for a number of years the right arm of a degenerate and tech basher/squirrel named David Miscavige.

I have spent hundreds of hours reconstructing those levels and have offered them to ethical individual who were technically ready for it. The results were everything that was hoped for.

Sadly a number of fanatic bashers have decided that Marty Rathbun is as infallible on technical matters just like the Pope is on matters of Catholic faith. My technical assessment of Marty Rathbun falls very short of the hypnotic faith some of his followers have in him.

One of my most virulent attackers was someone who never bothered to communicate or email me before he launched an attack by putting words in my mouth and accusing me of making statements I never had made.

The same individual professes to have abandoned belief in Scientology in favor of Buddhism, while having no problem charging large C/Sing fees for OT III, a level he apparently no longer believe in. Further, he uses the excuse of being a “Swinger” to justify his repeated attempts at getting his female public and trainees in bed with him.

Here is someone who is nowhere near ready for the next OT Levels, therefore should not have to concern himself about the availability of such.

Few mementos taken on 4th of July

Note: We also use our mementos with the fancies of celebrities in our blog no matter how jealous and evil are the bad mouths of the Wolfs in Sheep’s Clothing who are viscous bashing and spread lies shaming only the product of  their own auditors . 🙂 . There is a lot of space for greedy , jealous and evil bashers in the Baobab’s forest next lifetime.

In response to EVIL

Open letter:

Catherine Ethier

My quote of the day:

“Being mentally challenged is a disability but being EVIL is a choice!”

In response to Michelle Butcher – Sterling who wrote: “Pierre, some advice. Lose the crazy bi*ch …”

Preaching family destruction is EVIL! Promoting family disconnection is EVIL! It takes some real EVIL to split a family.

In regard to your continuous drama for many years now, I will reiterate that no one has ever been authorized to speak on my behalf , I have NEVER made any postings on your site. Although I am very flattered by your keen interest toward me  ( I recall one time when you, Michelle called me “a public figure” in a letter you wrote to your ISP), I want to firmly note that your own postings (which you often contribute to me) , your “snipplets”, other exerts out of context , “telepathic mind reading” realizations, alterations, misrepresentations and other assertions are only your personal fabrications and that of the members of your group.

 Thank you for generating traffic to my site. It has been  noted!

I wish you well Michelle and always.

Catherine

Note: Why Michelle Butcher (Ryan)- Sterling  is actually afraid to exchange 5 minutes direct communication with me but would spend couple of years in speculations and fabrications whining on various boards and plain misrepresenting matters of fact. For example Michelle’s claim that ” I have sent lawyers after her” is untrue.  I have NEVER hired a lawyer , in fact the lawyer’s letter sent to Michelle was from her business partner and ended with the phrase : “thank you for your business”. I was not sent a copy of it. Michelle went on and on and on by claiming that I have been “threatening her with lawyers” , “DMCA take down threat …” , ” Extortion” and so on fabrications. This is simply untrue! I  have asked Michelle to stop fairgaming my child and remove false fabrications about a MINOR disabled kid. Michelle if you have any questions would of been fair to ask me, not to whine a drama to the various manipulated members of your board. How can this DRAMA went on for so long? Michelle, not even a word of what you are saying is to be believed! Daily drama, lies and fabrications! Come on people , give me a break ! This amount of drama for being asked to remove the smear about a disabled child ?

Michelle wrote “Pierre, some advice. Lose the crazy bi*ch …”  – this is the Church of Scientology enemy line. Along with smearing disabled children, Michelle and Aida have partnered into what becomes a professional home and marriage wrecking. Michelle’s EVIL  line sounds very familiar. In actual fact it closely resembles the line of Barbro Wennberg . Barbro Wennberg is a staff at the Church of Scientology who aimed to split our family writing on my husband’s folder an order: “dump the bi*ch“. Let me tell you more about Barbro. Barbro was for  two days caretaker of Lisa McPherson. Along with others she  kept Lisa  confined in a hotel room and  did not take her to the hospital ( Link1  , Link2 , Link 3, Link 4) when needed. Lisa McPherson as you all know died.

My husband was 20 years Sea Org staff working at no pay as an auditor. My husband left the Church of Scientology after he was coerced to provide loans to parishioners for services at the Church of Scientology and coerced otherwise to  provide money directly to the Church. Those  were funds needed for his medical treatment and funds vital for a necessary follow up surgery. While on staff at the Church my husband  was in an accident that caused him a severe injury. He was hit by a drunk taxi driver . My husband spent several days in coma , his leg was surgically reconstructed and he was told he will never walk again. He walked but the loans he generously gave to parishioners for their benefit were never repaid, there were no money left for his medical treatment , he could not afford to pay for a required follow up surgery and this resulted in a DISABILITY FOR LIFE. For his kindness my husband had to cope with disability for life and was consistently ridiculed by associates of the Church, their allies and the manipulated by them crowds. There were numerous character assassination attacks carried out maliciously by publishing defamatory libelous  matters without lawful justification or excuse and only meant to injure the reputation of my husband and my family by exposing us to hatred, contempt and ridicule that was designed to insult us. This is criminal!

Also while working as a staff in the Church my husband sustained injuries and severe life threatening conditions. The last one I personally witnessed was treated by Dr. Minkoff ( also involved in the Lisa McPherson’s case). My husband was instructed by the MLO that the Church is not maintaining workers compensation insurance for their own employees and will not cover the treatment even if he was going to die. Workers compensation coverage for employees is mandatory regulatory requirement to cover employee treatment for injuries on the job. We have kept silent about this kind of abuse for many years now just to be abused even more.

You can make another drama, fabricate some more untrue statements , abuse me and my family some more. That is all you are about. I don’t care! More traffic to my site! Thank you.

My response to the FreeZone PR Terril Park who has been calling me names:

 I would rather be a “Crazy Bi*ch”, than an EVIL Witch hosting as a FreeZone Party Special Guest of honor well known to her alleged  child molester and a FZ Class VIII ( refer to video below)  . Couple of years prior to hosting ” the matador” on her FreeZone party, Aida had told me that this FZ Class VIII is a “s*x pervert” .  Her own words. Few years after she went on to promote and PR the ” matador”  and FZ Class VIII who according to Aida was a harmful pervert. I would rather sound “crazy” than willingly to throw under the carpet corrupt practices, cover up  abuse and fairgame of children.

Terril Park is incapable to properly duplicate and any statements of his on my behalf are grossly distorted and unauthorized. We have received correspondence from a financial sponsor of his claiming to have ” hijacked his email” ( her own words) and using his email address and accounts. I will be more than happy to provide a copy upon request.

  Wow

Procrastination

Statistics suggest that 40% of people have experienced financial loss due to procrastination. Chronic procrastination affects 20% of men and women. Are you one of them?

There are five key reasons people procrastinate:

  • Fear of failure
  • Fear of success
  • Fear of what “others” will think
  • Fear of taking responsibility
  • False sense of security

The key to beating procrastination and reaching your full potential is effort and commitment. Most people reach their full potential simply by making a commitment and holding themselves accountable to it now not tomorrow.

Success in Collaboration

Pierre_Ethier_Collaboration

Please pass this relatively “minor” success story to Pierre. I am qualifying the success I will now write about as “minor” as I do not look in the physical universe for proof of gains. My gains are what I am certain of, firstly in my own universe. It is a bonus if these gains manifest themselves in other universes.
Yesterday Pierre and I addressed a “problem”. This problem was perfectly fine and related to a business relationship and a strong difference of approach between me and a business associate I had entered in a business commitment with.
A couple of months ago I wrote an email to this business associate with an extensive business proposal. When I did not hear back for a month, I forwarded the email to the business executive who is the person’s direct senior. I basically intended to bypass this person as he did not want to be in communication.
Pierre and I briefly addressed this “problem” in session  and quickly moved on.
Yesterday I received an email from this business executive with a copy to his junior associate. He wanted his subordinate to arrange a conference call for next week between us all. The last time this business executive allowed live phone contact was over a year ago. The only other communication with him were some short generic emails with no substantial business commitments I received in the first quarter of this year.
Coincidence? Perhaps. Perhaps not.
If this phone call works out as I want it to, I will immediately receive close to $20 000 for a completed business engagement.
Kind regards,
[Signed]

TRAUMATIC INCIDENT STRESS

A traumatic incident is one that may involve exposure to catastrophic events, severe injury or a personal loss (emotional and physical).

Recommendations to Monitor and Maintain Healthy Emotional State

Individuals affected by traumatic incidents need to take ownership and to maintain the constant vigilance they need for their  well being and must be able to stay focused  in the dynamic, changing  environment. Often people do not recognize the need to take care of themselves and to monitor their own emotional and physical health.  The following guidelines contain simple methods for individuals affected by traumatic incidents.

Take control over yourself and your environment

  • Be conscious of those around you. Individuals who are exhausted, stressed, or even temporarily distracted may place themselves and others at risk.
  • Take frequent rest breaks if necessary.  Mental fatigue, particularly over long shift your risk of  accidents and injury.

Maintain adequate nutrition and rest

  • Eat and sleep regularly. Maintain as normal a schedule as possible.
  • Drink plenty of fluids such as water and juices.
  • Try to eat a variety of foods and increase your intake of complex carbohydrates (for example, breads and muffins made with whole grains, granola bars).
  • Whenever possible, take breaks and getaways.

Monitor mental and emotional state

  • Recognize and accept what you cannot change
  • Talk to people when YOU feel like it. You decide when you want to discuss your experience. Talking about an event may be reliving it. Choose your own comfort level.
  • If you have access to counselling  support, use it!
  • Recurring thoughts, dreams, or flashbacks are normal—do not try to fight them. They will decrease over time.
  • Communicate with your loved ones as frequently as possible.

Recommendations to Maintain Health Following the Incident

Over time your impressions and understanding of their experience will change. This process is different for everyone. No matter what the event or an individual’s reaction to it, you can follow some basic steps that will help  adjust to the experience:

  • Reach out—people really do care.
  • Reconnect with family, spiritual, and community supports.
  • Consider keeping a journal.
  • Do not make any big life decisions.
  • Make as many daily decisions as possible to give yourself a feeling of control over your life.
  • Spend time with others or alone doing the things you enjoy to refresh and recharge yourself.
  • Be aware that you may feel particularly fearful for your family. This is normal and will pass in time.
  • Remember that “getting back to normal” takes time. Gradually work back into your routine. Let others carry more weight for a while at home and at work.
  • Be aware that recovery is not a straight path but a matter of two steps forward and one back. You will make progress.
  • Appreciate a sense of humor in yourself and others. It is okay to laugh again.
  •  This is a time for patience, understanding, and communication.
  • Avoid use of drugs or alcohol. You do not need to complicate your situation with a substance abuse problem.
  • Get plenty of rest and normal exercise. Eat well-balanced, regular meals.
  • Get counselling

Positive change

caterina-ethierAre we attracting what we want in life? Do you know what you want? Individuals often do not take the time to focus on abundance. So often they really focus on the next material thing like the bigger car or the bigger house. More money , more toys and more stuff. Or  some individuals focus on less. Less work or less weight. As the individuals work on improving themselves they eventually find themselves able to attract their wants and needs as a living magnet. It is more important than ever to actually define what you want in order to attract the right crowd and energize your environment. And again it has come the time to learn from the lessons in the past, re-define more clearly our goals to truly reconnect with the fine spiritual dimensions.

More than anything Pierre’s work has been about helping people to shift to thriving, from just surviving. Not all challenges can be overcome with knowledge alone as sometimes individuals need help when the going gets tough.

Also, personal support, guidance and counseling is about more than overcoming challenges. For many it is about making the shift from good to great. This is why after refining his goals, Pierre has stated to carefully rebuilding his communication network and associations. The aim  is to focus into helping the able to become more able.

This is why Pierre has shifted his approach in development of personal and business networks to balance accountability, learning , planned actions based on careful examinations and screening  with the expectation of positive life reflection. Pierre has build resilience while dealing with all inherited challenges in the field . He wish no part of any venture promoting and favoring insanity and evil doing.

Is Shelly Miscavige missing?

Shelly Miscavige is the wife of David Miscavige. It seems that she has not been seen for the last six years. A defector allegedly has stated that she is being held a prisoner on a Scientology property where she is guarded, and interrogated, day and night.

In Response to EVIL – another story of abuse

Catherine Ethier

Open letter by Catherine Ethier

My husband, Pierre Ethier was for 20 years Sea Org staff working at almost no pay as a Scientology Counselor . He has been the auditor to many Celebrities. There are over 5000 people in his counseling list and he had achieved the top training levels at the Church of Scientology. For 20 years my husband was working 110 hours a week as a slave at almost no pay while the Church of Scientology was profiting from his services at the rate of $1000 per hour from parishioners.  Pierre was dedicated into kindness and helping people.

My husband left the Church of Scientology after he was coerced to provide loans to parishioners for services at the Church of Scientology and coerced otherwise to  provide money directly to the Church of Scientology. Those  were funds needed for his medical treatment and funds vital for a necessary follow up surgery after an accident.

While on staff at the Church my husband  was in an accident that caused him a severe injury. He was hit by a drunk taxi driver . My husband spent many days in coma , his leg was ripped apart and surgically reconstructed. He was told he will never walk again. He walked but the loans he generously gave to  the Church parishioners for their own spiritual benefit to purchase services at the Church of Scientology were never repaid. There were no money left for his medical treatment , he could not afford to pay for a required follow up surgery and this resulted in a DISABILITY FOR LIFE. For his kindness my husband had to cope with disability for life and was consistently ridiculed by associates of the Church, their allies and the manipulated by them crowds. There were numerous character assassination attacks on my husband which were carried out maliciously by publishing defamatory libelous  matters without lawful justification or excuse and only meant to injure the reputation of my husband and my family by exposing us to hatred, contempt and ridicule that was designed to insult us. This is criminal!

Also while working as a staff in the Church my husband sustained injuries and severe life threatening conditions. The last one I personally witnessed was treated by Dr. Minkoff ( also involved in the Lisa McPherson‘s case). My husband was instructed by the MLO ( The Medical Officer at the Church) that the Church is not maintaining workers compensation insurance for their own employees and will not cover the treatment needed even if he was going to die. Workers compensation coverage for employees is mandatory regulatory requirement to cover employee treatment for injuries on the job. We have kept silent about this kind of abuse for many years now just to be abused even more by what appears to be people manipulated by the Church of Scientology or ruthless corrupt individuals who have inherited the poisoned culture from that environment. 

My husband came out of  the Church of Scientology broke and with disability! ( In actual fact I took him out of the Church of Scientology!) He never begged for money like some of the abusers dedicated to insult him. He did not beg for money even if he desperately needed funds for his medical surgery. In retrospect I recall one of our constant and very vocal abusers  begging for donations for legal expenses to get out of trouble generated by mischief and crime. Another shameless group of  evil abusers wanted to profit from getting the home of  my disabled child and leaving us homeless. This out of EVIL and GREED. Not only that Pierre did not beg for money, but he has many times reached the unexpected , he is productive , active and generously donates time and efforts for betterment of others.

In addition there were constant attacks to our marriage. Recently a  marriage wrecker  again made a lot of noise promoting the Church of Scientology enemy line: “Pierre, some advice. Lose the crazy bi*ch …”   Along with the smearing of my disabled child wolfs in sheep`s clothing have partnered  into what has become a professional home and marriage wrecking. This EVIL  line sounds very familiar because in actual fact it closely resembles the line of Barbro Wennberg . Barbro Wennberg is a staff at the Church of Scientology who aimed to split our family writing on my husband’s folder an order: “dump the bi*ch”. Let me tell you more about Barbro. Barbro was for  two days caretaker of Lisa McPherson. Along with others she  kept Lisa  confined in a hotel room and  did not take her to the hospital ( Link1  , Link2 , Link 3Link 4) when needed. Lisa McPherson as you all know died.

Preaching family destruction is EVIL! Promoting family disconnection is EVIL! It takes some real EVIL to split a family.

There has been a continuous internet drama generated by few unbalanced individuals for many years now who were trying hard to enforce  the Church of Scientology enemy lines  with fabricated postings (which were often fraudulently contributed to me) ,  “snippets”, other exerts out of context , “telepathic mind reading” realizations, alterations, misrepresentations, doctored offensive images, name calling and other assertions that are only their own abusive fabrications, fraudulent impersonations and delusions. I have kept silent about this EVIL. There were also individuals who fraudulently were claiming to know me and my husband and to speak on our behalf in order to instigate conflicts or boost their own self promotion with misrepresentations. Be aware that nothing of this fraudulent propaganda targeted to victimize us it to be believed. 

I have been frequently fraudulently copied/pasted in hostile write ups and monologues when the authors generated wild rumors which shall not be believed.  This generated hatred is primary distorted within the lenses of the authors own fabrications coupled with lots of DRAMA ! I get more attention than many celebrities in their respective fields. I get more attention than the Church because the Church is to big of a spoon for their mouths. Seems that some are very upset that the Church agents are unwelcome to my site but naturally they can feel free to entertain them on theirs.

Now that I spoke out , the wolfs in sheep`s clothing will be the more vocal and will make another drama, fabricate some more untrue statements , abuse me and my family some more. That is all they are about. Make no mistake.

The good people will now understand that they have been manipulated into repeating the Church of Scientology agenda and will find out that the animosity serves no purpose.

I have come to forgive you for what you have done to me , to my child and to my family.

I wish you well.

Catherine Ethier

PORTLAND IDEAL ORG – PORTLAND PANICO IDEALE

Scientology-photoshops-attendance

The Church of Scientology and their supporters seem to routinely  photoshop promo materials and other publications  meant to manipulate the public opinion. These questionable activities  have even expanded to an unique  brand of stalking by Church of Scientology associated paparazzi. One example that comes to my mind are the well known Squirrebusters following Ruthbun.

The promo materials of a recent event were doctored to make it look like there were more people in attendance and mislead the reader. The  Church of Scientology Portland celebrated the grand opening of their new home in the city’s historic downtown quarter.

Below are the pictures from the event.

L'INDIPENDOLOGO

PortlandView

Portland ha inaugurato l’ennesimo Obitorio Ideale con la eccezionale presenza del leader Massimo: David Miscavige.

Sono stati letteralemente bloccati quattro isolati attorno all’edificio per fare in modo che David Mischiappa facesse il suo discorso in santa pace e che non venisse disturbato da eventuali dissidenti.

La Polizia di Portland a sostegno delle forze di OSA ha contribuito a garantire la sicurezza.

Mark Bunker non si è comunque lasciato intimidire ed ha cercato di tenerci informati, mentre Tony Ortega tramite il suo Blog ci faceva conoscere come procedevano le cose.

Scoprirete nel video che vi proponiamo di seguito quanto è accaduto.

C’era anche Jeff Hawkins alla manifestazione che ci ha fornito un video, purtroppo senza audio… ma siamo riusciti a ricostruire tramite il labbiale alcune parole che il Leader Massimo ha pronunciato e le abbiamo inserite….

Blast from the past

Pierre-Ethier-Sea-Org-2

Pierre Ethier in the Sea Org around 1982.

Having discovered Scientology in Montreal in early 1973, and experienced life altering changes in my introductory services, I decided to join staff full time, and put my studies indefinitely on hold.

The organization became prosperous and expanded by leaps and bounds, thanks to an FEBC trained Executive Director and to my effective activities running Division 6 (New Public into the org).

The organization eventually moved to the main street, a mere one block away from what was the busiest intersection in the country.

I was made in charge of Davison 1 (HCO) supervising Communication and “Ethics” and doing recruitment myself.

In just over 6 months, the organization more than doubled in size and personnel. The best staff were hired during that period. In 1992, I felt a great sense of pride when I discovered than the entire Senior Executive structure and the 6 oldest staff members in Montreal org were all people that I had either personally hired or introduced to Scientology in the 1970s.

I eventually fell out of favour with the Executives running Montreal org in 1975, and it was agreed that I would complete my 2 1/2 year contract working under the Executive Director in Quebec City (a 4 hour drive from Montreal), in exchange for one of their staff who wanted to be transferred.

The Executive Director made me his assistant, and essentially allowed me the full run of the Org, merely filling in reports and acting as the contact person with the Flag Liaison office, so that he could pursue other activities and training.

I had a “different understanding” of Ethics than my Superiors at Montreal and those at the Flag Liaison office wanted.

To them, Ethics was “Harsh”, absolutely punitive and degrading in its application, and you had to go through Hell to get through it. Ethics to them was something meant to be as unpleasant as an amputation performed without anaesthetics.

I differed in that viewpoint (and still do), in that Ethics was merely a tool to get the job done and the application of Ethics should be an activity where “Everybody Wins”.

Degradation, torments and humiliation seem in my eyes to be merely relics belonging to Medieval History and are largely Whole-Track Dramatizations, not a component of a Science of Life that boasts to be on par with the man’s Highest Technological Achievements. In my Technical view someone who thinks and act like Ethics is something savage, harsh, unreasonable and even cruel, not only demonstrate a clear need to have his Evil Purposes (and Rockslams) on the subject of Help addressed, but is a serious candidate for receiving a GF40 (earlier practices assessment), as he is clearly confused between some earlier humanoid practices and that of Scientology.

Looking back at it, Quebec City of the 1970s is one of the few places in Scientology where Ethics was applied in a Benign and Benevolent Manner.

The result: High Stats and Morale. No blows, no cries, no grief. Staff so happy being there that each and everyone instinctively disseminates and recruits whenever he steps out of the org for an errand, a meal or taking the bus. Staff not fighting with each other to “get their own stat up”, but sincerely cooperating one with the other with their foremost interest being expanding the Org and the broad Dissemination of Scientology. Almost no more PTS Type A situations to handle as entire families are on lines getting Services and drilling each others. Body routers were frequently being recalled from passing hand outs on the street, because unexpected high inflows of interested public would just walk in. The Number of Well Done Auditing Hours in the Staff HGC was competing with those from the Public HGC…

Happy Orthodox Easter

HPIM2004Orthodox Christians celebrate Pascha according to the Easter date in the Julian calendar. Pascha is the most important event in the church calendar in the Orthodox Church. Many Orthodox Christians attend church liturgies during the Holy Week that leads up to Easter Sunday. The Easter Sunday church liturgy is joyous as it celebrates Jesus Christ’s resurrection, as told in the Christian bible.

The period before Easter, known as Lent, is also a time of strict fasting. Orthodox Christians observe this fasting ritual before celebrating Easter Sunday with a feast, where meat and dairy products can be eaten again. Another tr

adition observed in Orthodox Christian churches is the blessing of food baskets. The baskets are usually filled with bread, cheese, meat, eggs, butter, salt, and other types of food used for Paschal celebrations.

One of the most common questions Orthodox Christians are asked is, why Orthodox Christians don’t celebrate Easter/Holy Pascha with everyone else?

Pierre-Ethier

 

Often, those asking are Orthodox Christians who know that some years we do have the same Easter observance, others we don’t, so why don’t we celebrate the feast of feasts of the Christian year with other Christians?

The answer to the question is found in two areas of human life that are among the least popular — mathematics and history.
Clearly, for both Western and Eastern Orthodox Christians, the date of the feast differs from year to year. That’s because we use a different calculus for determining the date. So here is where most people say, “OK, I get it, you differ, I guess you have your reasons.” But those who are not math-phobic press on to ask why we have a different calculus, and how the calculus is different for East and West.

These names, dates and events are not quite in a galaxy far, far away, but to many it seems that way. Quartodecimians, Nicea I, Antioch, Alexandria, Jerusalem, Rome, Athanasius, Constantine, 325, for starters, only serve to either glaze over the eyes or scramble the brain. Unless some of those names and dates bring out the response, “That was in ‘The Da Vinci Code.’ “ Dan Brown’s novel is not a reliable or recommended source for this question.HPIM2006 The best place to start is with what Christians have in common when it comes to Easter/Holy Pascha, which puts the difference in the date of the celebration in its proper perspective. All of us celebrate on a Sunday, the first day of the week, since that is when the gospels tell us Christ rose from the dead. This itself was a disputed issue resolved at the First Council of Nicea in 325 AD.

The alternative was a date that occurred on a different day every year, and that day was the date of Passover according to the lunar calendar followed by the Jewish people at the time of Jesus’ death and resurrection. Subsequent modifications to the Jewish calendar resulted in the Council of Nicea decreeing that the calculation of the date of Pascha and of Passover were independent of each other. Sunday is the day on which the resurrection occurred, and as the first day it is understood by Christians as the beginning of the New Creation, the day without end, the eighth day.

But the issue remained, how to calculate which Sunday, a task given to the Church in Alexandria, which was renowned for its astronomers. The astronomers of Alexandria came up with a table of cycles of 19 years upon which the date of Pascha was determined, factoring in the full moon after the vernal equinox. Those dates were calculated according to the Julian calendar used at the time. Later, the West adopted a table of cycles that had 84 years.

While all the Christian world initially shared one calendar and shared one date for the celebration, the change to the Gregorian calendar in the West in the late 16th century, and the continuing use of the Julian calendar in the East, resulted in an initial difference of 11 days between the two, a difference which is now 13 days. Further complicating this was the date on which the vernal equinox was established in the Alexandrian table, a fixed date that was recognized as inaccurate on a yearly basis, but established as a base line for calculations.

The decisions made at the Council of Nicea in 325 were made to guarantee a universal celebration of the greatest feast on the Christian calendar by all Christians. This goal is recognized today as one we need to recover. Steps in that direction were taken in 1997 at a meeting of representatives of the Christian Churches held in Aleppo, Syria.
Further discussions have been broached between the Roman Catholic Church and the Ecumenical Patriarchate. This year, the Latin Patriarchate of Jerusalem, covering most of the Holy Land, Cyprus and Jordan, will celebrate with their Orthodox brethren, and have requested papal approval to do this permanently.

More than any text or meeting, this provides a common witness and a great hope that all — Orthodox, Roman Catholic and Protestant Christians of all denominations — can celebrate the cause of our hope and the foundation of our faith together, with at least some of the unity for which Christ prayed before His arrest: that all may be one.

Constantly changing communication protocols in 21st century

catherine-ethier-wife-of-pierre-ethier

Technology is changing how we communicate in our daily lives. The technical advancements vigorously influenced communication etiquette and lead to establishing of new rules. It caused a clash between our retro habits and the rapidly changing personal environment surrounding us.

So when interacting with others keep  in mind in mind to never jump to conclusions and create assumptions when it comes to unpublished communication protocols related to communication technology , speed of confirmation and response , as well as a time frame. A decade ago, faxing was standard, ICQ was a marvel and people thought call-waiting was rude. Today, we text at meetings, find phone calls intrusive and send e-mails to the guy in the next cubicle. As communications technology rapidly advances, social protocols can barely keep up.

E-mail occupies that space between the formality of a letter and the breeziness of a text message. There is certain expectation of privacy when communicating via emails and the public distribution and forwarding of private emails to others often leaves the taste of bitterness  and betrayal of trust. It is fair and wise to confirm with the originator if the email can be published or forwarded if you want to build a positive and constructive relationship flowing power of the two way communication.

Social media have much more relaxing restrictions and even most businesses now have Facebook pages. The professionalism approaching other must still reign. Consider LinkedIn connections like business cards; some will be useful, others you’ll forget. Google yourself once a month just to be sure “what happened in Vegas will not stay in Vegas”. Be aware about hate pages where failures express their own frustrations about others success just like the Boston Marathon bombers.

In a world where everyone is Google-able and smartphones can exchange info by touching, most people still find it useful in exchanging  business cards. Keep your card simple and  use your card wisely. Don’t clutter your card with every address, number, online profile, blog and website you have. Just the basics. The rest is online.

Chances are, these days you’ll get the quickest response to an e-mail or text message but to create more personable relationship always use the phone. Voice communication if useful to clear mis-communications based on the wrong assumptions. Never jump to conclusions about the state of mind of another person without personal confirmation. Research shows that voice spending on phone plans is on the decline, while text spending is up. But audible communication can still win out on efficiency, especially when dealing with multiple, complex or very personal matters. Voice is also good for discerning tone when emoticons don’t cut it. Sometimes If you must call it may be wise to send a warning e-mail and ask if it’s a good time to talk scheduling a conference call.

Face to face meetings are inevitable, and are especially important with clients. People still find it disrespectful if can’t stop tapping on your phone.

Unless you’re serving legal documents, faxing is practically offensive in its antiquity. It’s too uncertain where a document ended up and who else read it. However once serving legal documents by email should be considered stalking and not serious. According to the local police if a legal document is not send in the mail then it is highly questionable. If you must fax , check via email or phone if it was received.

Though texting and messaging offer speed, ease and the ability to get straight to the point, they often don’t offer a record of correspondence that comes with e-mail, and can feel too informal for business communication.  Keep in mind, though, that 90% of people under 30 will respond to a text message within an hour.

The use of letters beyond supermarket flyers, court  and legal documents, the odd passport application or bank statement, it’s all gone digital.

Voice mail is being driven into obsolescence by caller ID and text-based interaction. Recent research found that 20% of people rarely retrieve their messages. Until it completely disappears from the workplace, however, keep in mind that voice messages left on a cellphone are even less likely to be heard. No one wants to dial in just to hear “Hey, call me back.” Caller ID may be just enough. If you must leave a message, never natter on for longer than 30 seconds.

Dymaxion House – art and technology

The Dymoxion House is an extraordinary dwelling designed to be the strongest, lightest and most cost-effective housing ever built around 1946. The  remaining prototype is located in the Henry Ford museum across Ford Conference center in Dearborn , Michigan . The visionary and spiritually fulfilling architecture of R. Buckminster Fuller takes us thought “the house of the future.”Pierre-Ethier-Dymaxion-House

The 4-D Box

Dymaxion House prototype
Buckminster Fuller’s Dymaxion House plan  uses prefabricated parts designed for easy shipment and assembly into modest-sized, single-family homes; though beyond that, the similarities dissolve. The Dymaxion House was round with a domed roof; the entire structure was suspended from a central mast anchored to a foundation. Cables spread from the central mast at the floor and ceiling levels like bicycle spokes supporting the building’s weight with tensile force rather than gravity. The exterior was clad in aluminum sheeting and never needed painting, like a durable silver onion.
At 1,100 square feet, the house was lighter, stronger, faster to assemble, and less expensive to manufacture or to own than a comparable conventional house. Fuller’s house weighed 3,000 pounds, 1/100th the weight of an ordinary house, and less than a mid-sized car. Structurally it was sound enough to withstand earthquakes or tornados that would level a normal house. Delivered in its own metal tube, it could be assembled in one day by six workers. Theoretically, it could also be disassembled, repacked, moved and reassembled, though in practice the process would have been inconvenient. The Dymaxion House was marketed for around the price of a luxury car—half the cost of a basic house.
dymaxion prototype #2
The round shape maximized interior space with a minimal amount of material. The floor plan included a living/dining room, kitchen, and two bedrooms with private baths. Energy- and water-efficient features included expansive windows for passive solar heating, a ventilation system for passive air conditioning, a gray-water system to reuse wastewater, a waterless “packaging toilet,” and a low-water “fogger” to replace the shower.

Fuller’s first drawings for the Dymaxion House appeared in his 1928 self-published manifesto 4D Time Lock. It was a speculative work of science, engineering, and spirituality that proposed reforms to what Fuller saw as the destructive inefficacies of modern industrial civilization.
At the most prosaic level, 4D is a proposal for a new type of small house that Fuller earnestly hoped would be embraced by the building trades, the financial industry, and the architectural profession… 4D is not really about houses, however; it is a spiritual meditation on time, the supramaterial fourth dimension of experience and the true measure of industrial society. 
Fuller sent his manifesto to leading scientists, planners, and industrialists of the day, hoping to find support for enacting his reforms on a large scale. At the time, he had little recognition within the architectural community. In fact, the AIA released a statement in 1928 that it was “inherently opposed to any peas-in-a-pod-like reproducible designs.”
Fuller would later claim that the statement was in direct response to the 4D house proposal. Whether that’s true isn’t certain, but it’s clear that Fuller’s plan broke with contemporary architectural dialects. In fact, prominent architects like Mies van der Rohe and Corbusier were already making extensive use of standardized industrial elements, but Fuller’s house plan went further in leaving behind familiar aesthetics of residential design. His vision was closer to the production of an automobile or an airplane than a durable building.
Corbusier wanted to make a “machine for living in” by using machine processes to achieve aesthetic results that would please the inhabitant. Fuller wanted a “machine for living,” a house that would function like a machine to improve the quality of the life of its inhabitants. (2)

Dymaxion House elevation by Fuller, 1927

The Dymaxion House first came to public attention through a display at Chicago’s Marshall Field Department Store in 1929. A public relations agent working on the display came up with the term “dymaxion,” combining syllables from dynamic, maximum, and tension, some of Fuller’s favorite words for the project. Fuller embraced the term and applied it to numerous projects throughout his career.

Fuller with Dymaxion House model, 1929

From the beginning, Fuller had wanted to put the Dymaxion House into mass production. But whatever interest the 4D manifesto or the Marshall Field display generated, it wasn’t until after World War II that he made progress towards manufacturing. Fuller saw the country’s military aircraft plants, facing slowdowns and shutdowns with the end of the war, as ideal facilities for manufacturing the aluminum Dymaxion House. He found interested investors and entered into a deal with Beech Aircraft to manufacture 250,000 houses per year. The house received attention in the press, and over 3,500 buyers placed orders by 1946.
Nonetheless, Fuller’s engineering acumen, visionary zeal, and big-picture efficiency weren’t enough to bring the house to the assembly line. Plans with Beech broke down over design and manufacturing details and the house never went into production. Maybe Fuller, for all his empiricism, wasn’t willing to compromise his vision for the technical production requirements. Maybe the house wasn’t really workable on an industrial scale. In any event, only two prototype Dymaxion houses were ever made. No one ever lived in the Dymaxion House as Fuller had envisioned it. The prototypes were eventually bought by one of the investors, who erected one as an addition to his family’s ranch style summer house, and kept the other one disassembled to use for replacement materials.

The family used the house until the 1970s, and eventually donated it to the Henry Ford Museum  in 1991. The Dymaxion House was painstakingly restored and has been on display at the museum since 2001, gleaming like a modern, industrial Faberge egg.
This final enshrinement at least dovetails with Fuller’s own ambition: he considered Ford’s assembly-line innovations to be one of the great achievements of the 20th century, and had included Ford on the short list of original recipients of the 4D Time Lock manifesto.

About compassion

The Los Angeles Dodgers had two visits to the City of Hope. It is something magical to see the smiles that they bring to these patients and feel the compassion in their eyes .  Patients and Visitors enjoyed meeting the players, having their pictures taken with them, and receiving their autographs.

Keep Scientology Working (KSW)

Pierre_Ethier-Scientology-Class-XII-Auditor

HOW TO KEEP SCIENTOLOGY FROM WORKING:

ABANDON ANY PART OF ITS TECHNOLOGY THAT CONFLICTS WITH PRIVATE INTERESTS OF ITS PRINCIPALS

People who have been running Scientology have not always had the most Ethical of Intentions. In fact, those running it for the last three decades have had intentions that have nothing to do with the improvement of people or their reaching true enlightenment.

It is common place among the criminal to accuse others of what they are themselves doing and therefore hide (they think) their true misdeeds by labeling them as being the opposite of what they truly are.

THE HIDDEN OBJECTIVES OF THE GOLDEN AGE OF TECH

The Golden Age of Tech is yet another example. it should have been called the Age of Darkness.

PRIMARY OBJECTIVE

The primary objective of the Golden Age of Tech is to “wipe clean the slate of auditors” by cancelling any certificate ever obtained (even under L. Ron Hubbard himself) and ordering them to lengthy retrains where auditors will be re-educated in the application of auditing.

Compare it to the following definition:

A systematic effort to eliminate an individual’s former loyalties and beliefs and to substitute them for a new ideology. It is best achieved by isolating and/or disconnecting from any anyone with divergent ideas, the insistence on exacting regimens that are not to be challenged or questioned, strong social pressures and rewards for cooperation; physical and psychological punishments for noncooperation, including social ostracism and criticism, deprivation of food, sleep, and social contacts, bondage, and torture; and constant reinforcement.

The above is the DEFINITION OF BRAINWASHING!

 SECONDARY OBJECTIVE

The secondary objective of the Golden Age of Tech is to implant the unimpeachable datum that RTC is infallible in technical matters and that any technical edict it issues should never be questioned, under penalty of excommunication and eternal damnation.  This will prove vital in getting all auditors under the control of the Church to blindly accept radical transformations in definitions and the technology without even needing to publish new bulletins,and accepting any verbal Tech issued by RTC as “undisputable truth”.

Thus we have the definition of a Floating Needle being perverted and causing thousands of unnecessary overruns.

This we have the Fabulous Ls Rundowns have been completely transmogrified and now being run according to lower level styles and techniques instead of their own unique ones, and over 50% of recipients at Flag being greatly unhappy (or worse) with them.

Thus we have the invention of the datum that people auditing on Solo NOTs must learn “How to Kill and F/N” and disavow their wins in order to benefit the Church through statistics and/or income.

Thus we have people being audited for hours over ARCXs with the auditor purposefully ignoring them because of some arbitrary or false datum he has been indoctrinated in.

TERTIARY OBJECTIVE

The tertiary objective of the Golden Age of tech are 1- to remove any call to judgment or understanding by auditors and replace it with inflexible rules and robotic protocols.

QUARTERNARY OBJECTIVE

The quaternary objective is the adoption of the false datum that any auditor or Case Supervisor applying fanatically the Golden Age of tech procedures can not possibly err. The corollary of that false axiom is that any and all complaints or disagreements about the programming, auditing or C/Sing merely indicate undisclosed misdeeds by the complainant(s).

Since the creation of the Golden Age of Tech, over half of the Solo NOTS completion have either openly defected or quietly departed from the Church. and nearly as many OT VIIIs. Church membership has dwindled by 60%. LRH repute has been torn to shred in the Media and on Internet and the Church under its current leadership has done nothing whatsoever to stop that trend, but only preoccupying itself at “defending David Miscavige” whenever he was justly attacked and criticized for his crimes.

HOW RTC HAS CORRUPTED THE TECH AND BETRAYED SCIENTOLOGY

When the Golden Age of tech was announced in 1996, the “Discovery” by David Miscavige was that the “Blind had been leading the Blind”. Nothing was said about the inescapable facts that

1- RTC by definition was the one leading on technical matters, and therefore being “The Blind”

2- Being Blind in that context (having low perception) is entirely the product of hidden misdeeds and contra-survival acts.

3- Therefore, announcing that RTC was entirely responsible for the Technology being applied the way it was (wrongly), Scientology public were expected to continue to blindly trust the same group of thugs that David Miscavige was broadcasting as having betrayed its public.

THE 10 COMMANDMENTS ACCORDING TO RTC

Since the Advent of RTC, in the 1980s, the Church of Scientology has completely failed in its mission of “Keep Scientology Working”. It has focused almost exclusively at controlling people, typically through Terror and the destruction of anyone who “had other Fish to fry” (an expression that has come to mean doing or thinking anything that is not written in the new Tables of the Law written by RTC.  The Laws being:

1- Thou shalt not question nor doubt any rule or order issued by or on behalf or RTC, no matter how off-policy or destructive it may seem to be.

2- Thou shalt submit all of your dynamics under the control and orders of the Church and accept all directives to suppress one or more dynamics, including Divorce, Abortion or Disconnection without challenge or disobedience.

3- Thou shalt lie and deceive even under oath, if it benefit the Church without feeling there is the slightest wrong in doing so.

4- Thou shalt not save any money for yourself, your future or your children, but donate without examination everything you own to the Church. You will get into debt without any limitation as long as you keep being ordered to do so by a Church official.

5- Thou shall disconnect as destructively as possible from anyone who disagrees with the Church, the way it is being run or who criticizes any of its principals.

6- Thou shalt refuse to listen to any communication or examine any data that seek to prove or explain how you may have been lied to by the Church, declaring that anything unflattering about the Church or its principals is by definition entheta and a lie.

7- Thou shalt accept any orders to apply Scientology, its Tech or its Admin differently than you have learned if RTC orders it as they know better than anyone else.

8- Disavow or disconnect from your Father and Mother, sisters and brothers, spouse or children whenever  it is ordered to by an Ethics Officer.

9- Never doubt anything you are told at any Church Briefing or official publication, nor  ever try to confirm their accuracy. Use the Internet solely for purposes immediately related to your job and refuse to read anything about Scientology, the Church or any of its principals, as the Church of Scientology never lies to its members.

10- Only follow goals of yours that are directly and explicitly approved by the Church. Change your goals, the instant you are told by an Ethics Officer or other authorized Church personnel that they are wrong. Disregard the Code of Honor. It is only written for PR purposes.

STEP 0 OF KSW

Over the course of years an additional step has surreptitiously been added  to the 10 points of KSW:

Step 0 of KSW: Abandon the Technology, or least the bits that those in charge want discarded  to satisfy their political or financial interests. Hundreds of good Bulletins have been cancelled and never been replaced. Thousands of mental or spiritual breakthroughs been ignored or suppressed and parts of the technology developed by L. Ron Hubbard been kept indefinitely storage, in order to maximize financial gain by the Church of Scientology.

The following links show by year an exhaustive and complete list of all Technical Issues published along with their current status (where they can be found, of if cancelled or suppressed).

As a rule all issues written by someone else than LRH have been cancelled, even if doing so caused knowledge or vital advice to be lost. For example: Bulletins about Triple Rudiments have never been replaced and as a result, almost every auditor in the field have been mis-running Triple or Quad Rudiments using wrong or out-tech commands.

Scores of detailed drills covering anything from Handling Audiences to auditing correctly every processes on the Grades or actual Case Remedies have been cancelled without ever being replaced.

LIES IN THE PROMOTION OF THE GOLDEN AGE OF TECH

Decades after the wholesale cancellation of hundreds of Drills, an Impostor, who is also a failed auditor and an acknowledged NO CASE GAIN and who shows NO CHANGE as a down stat administrator created something he calls the GOLDEN AGE OF TECH, largely plagiarizing earlier cancelled bulletins that were written by Class XIIs and other Highly trained individuals as ordered by L. Ron Hubbard. He falsely claimed authorship behind them, defaming earlier Class XIIs and Highly trained auditors who had complied with  LRH orders to create drills for every single occasion, lying in front of an audience of thousands claiming that LRH orders had never been complied with when they had.

Hundreds of bulletins gave vital technical advice and examples of application, but were cancelled without replacement nevertheless. This includes Bulletins on auditing  Autistic Children, The secret reason why OTs can cave in or act badly, dynamic assessments and many other subjects.

It is immutable policy in the Church of Scientology, to cancel every single bulletin or materials written by a person who has just fallen out of favor or been branded suppressive, even if no replacement or substation is made. As a result there are gaping holes in the training auditors and errors and mistakes that would have been easily avoided have been committed in the name of “Keep Scientology Working” when the slogan KEEP SCIENTOLOGY WORKING was merely a hypocritical front for people who had no interest in the betterment of others so that they could order the demonizing and vilifying anyone who dared disagreeing or thinking an independent unsanctioned thought.

COMPLETE OF ALL TECHNICAL ISSUES EVER PUBLISHED

Due to the large amount of work required to make such a list, it is being done,one year at a time.

The first year that has been compiled is the year 1969.

COMPLETE OF ALL TAPED LECTURES EVER PUBLISHED

In 1976 a FLAG TAPE MASTER LIST was compiled and issued. It had a few omission, but was by far the most complete list ever published by the Church.

In the 1990s, the late Ken Ogger who gave himself for nickname “THE PILOT” published the most exhaustive list of LRH conferences ever made and sought to correct and add to it.

Using my own unique background as a Class XII and Sea Org Member on Tech lines at Flag for nearly 20 years and numerous contacts and sources of help, I have filled the holes in the Pilot lists and explained the current status of each lecture.

Since the advent of the Golden Age of Tech a number of lectures have been quietly buried and the very name and existence of those conferences been erased from scientology official teaching. The Church current position is that those lectures never existed, even though they exit in previous compilations. The Church has ordered destruction of those conferences by any of the faithful who still happen to own one.

For the year 1969 the Golden Age of Knowledge states that “No LRH lecture exists”, yet I was able to confirm by title and date 13 LRH lectures made that year.

Suppressive Groups

Pierre_Ethier-Scientology-Class-XII-Auditor

WHO OR WHAT IS A SUPPRESSIVE GROUP?

ARE SPLINTER OR DIVERGENT GROUPS TRULY SUPPRESSIVE?

DEFINITION

L. Ron Hubbard originally defined the concept of Suppressive Groups in a Policy Letter dated 29 June 1968 (Enrollment in Suppressive Groups).

He stated “SUPPRESSIVE GROUPS, are defined as those which seek to destroy Scientology or which specialize in injuring or killing persons or damaging their cases or which advocate the suppression of mankind”.

However, in actual practice, the Church of Scientology (and Hubbard himself for that matter), has branded as Suppressives anyone who started a splinter or divergent group.

THE TRUTH:

WHAT TRULY CAUSES A GROUP TO BE BRANDED SUPPRESSIVE

 

By actual record, the Church of Scientology declares as Suppressive:

1- Any splinter group, whatever were their motives or activities.

2- Any whistleblower or group denouncing illegal acts performed or ordered by the Church of Scientology or any of its principals.

3- Anyone refusing to comply with orders issued by the Church Elite, no matter how much these may contravene approved policy or the published aims of Scientology.

4- Anyone found to be applying Scientology, or a derivative of it without the official approval or without the paying of tithes to the Church of Scientology. Contrarily to any mainstream Church, unqualified and untrained people will make the assessment of such activities and uniformly find them to be bad and harmful without any real investigation or competence to do so..

5- Any organization whose principals are known by the Church of Scientology to be former members and that teaches anything of a mental, Spiritual or Religious nature, even when it has no real connection with Scientology nor seeks to compete with it.

6- Any group or Association that has copied ideas found in Scientology or L. Ron Hubbard writings and seek to apply them, without the official approval of the Church of Scientology and the payment of large amounts of royalties. This especially applies to any new Churches created in accordance with the laws of the land.

7- Any group of  individuals that seeks to challenge the activities of the Church of Scientology or its leaders, even when invoking the writings of L. Ron Hubbard and the original materials written by Hubbard in the 1950s, which the current Church of Scientology is very fond of calling scriptures.

A exhaustive and impartial analysis of top 50 splinter or dissenting group from the Church of Scientology reveals the following facts:

THE FACTS:

THE TRUE ATTRIBUTES OF SPLINTER OR DIVERGENT GROUPS

 

1- Each and every Splinter/Divergent group purported and sought to promote the ideas contained in Scientology and consistent with its philosophy. This includes the entirety of what is labeled as “FREEZONE” or Independent Field. Therefore far from suppressing Scientology, they uniformly tried to promote it. FACT: Splinter/Divergent Groups do not seek to suppress Scientology.

2- People who have claimed that a splinter Group or FREEZONE/Independent caused someone’s actual injury or Death are very few in number (less than 3%) and every instance dates from the 1990s or the 21st Century as a small clique of particularly unethical, poorly trained and ignorant individuals started to rule or influence the key factions of the Freezone/Independent Field . The majority of the assertions of actual harm or death in the Freezone/Independent Field are anonymously made and easily traceable to the Church of Scientology or its agents. Since the Church of Scientology is among the most DEAD-AGENTED organization on the planet (except in the blind eyes of its fanatical promoters and OSA agents/collaborators), the validity of those claims is very easy to dispute.

On the other hand, the number of people documented with claims that the Church of Scientology has caused injury or contributed directly to the death of people is in the high Hundreds, or perhaps in the thousands.

1001- TH WAY TO DIE

A statistical analysis and study of OTs remaining faithful to the Church reveal a truly scary trend: Life expectancy for them is a mere 57 years of age: that is 20 to 25 years below the national average for all but the poorest and under-developped countries on Earth. Active membership and participation in the Church of Scientology current activities ought to be labeled: “the 1001th way to die“.

Therefore, even giving reports exclusively written for the benefit of the Church of Scientology credibility, the ratio of people allegedly injured or killed by the Church of Scientology outnumbers the Splinter Groups/Freezone/Independents by over 300 to 1.

FACT: None of the Splinter/Divergent Groups has ever specialized in injuring or Killing persons.

3- As far as advocating the Suppression of Mankind, there is no evidence that any of the 500 groups listed on any list of Splinter or Divergent groups has ever advocated or encouraged such acts. On the other hand, the Church of Scientology has regularily promoted ideas described in the “ten stages of genocide” and frequently advocated that people be deprived or liberty or their Human rights should they happen to be blacklisted for whatever reason.

FACT: None of the Splinter/Divergent Groups has ever advocated the Suppression of Mankind.

DO FREEZONE/INDEPENDENTS GROUPS TRULY HARM CASES?

4- While the results achieved by Splinter groups and Freezone factions tend to vary according to ideas and quality in their application, only a small handful of Independent practitioners (less than 5% – none of them being member of an organized group) has shown that they may be possibly labeled as “harmful”. Even that claim is in dispute.

The matter of damaging people’s cases is largely a subjective one.

What of the auditor who falsely validates the hallucinatory claims of a pc to please him/her? Is he truly damaging the case of the person?

What of the auditor who validates the pc who is convinced that he audits remotely and telepathically the world leaders, including President Obama?

Or how about the one who believes he/she gets daily instructions from the spiritual plane where LRH gives them daily advice on where to purchase anything from picnic foam plates to a large Plasma TV?

What of people attesting to OT8, OT48 or even  OT 1008?

Most of these people claim to be happy, though many of their peers tend to view them as delusional.

For each person pointing them up as “damaged cases”, there will be those who promote them as exemplary cases.

Merely making people happy with their state of case is a questionable criteria. A number of cases, by actual record, incompetently audited people can turn on some form of Psychosis and Deep Hatred after having been audited as a victim, when they were actually a chronic aggressor and abuser of the rights of others. If one was to audit an “Hitler type” personality, the latter may enjoy his newly gained abilities as a wonderful tool for more effectively committing genocide or  spread his hatred against those he feel should be destroyed.

PREVIOUSLY DAMAGED CASES

Lastly, of supreme, but often neglected importance is whether the person’s case was already damaged by the Church of Scientology or its predecessors in the field of Mental and Spiritual practices.

In the vast majority of cases, it is simply impossible to ascertain. The Church of Scientology, typically blames its failed cases on Psychiatry and often invents newly discovered psychiatry related links to rationalize even the most justified of attacks on them.

Every case that has openly testified against a Freezone or Independent auditor for being abused, misaudited or otherwise mishandled, had done the exact same thing toward the Church of Scientology a number of years earlier.

Policies on Sources of Troubles written by L. Ron Hubbard describes responsible-for-condition cases as those insisting things such as some auditor or thing being “wholly responsible for the terrible condition I am in.” the same policy states that a “review of these cases show that they were in the same or worse condition long before auditing… and that their antagonism extends to anyone who seeks to help them”.

FACT: None of the Splinter/Divergent Groups has ever specialized in Damaging Cases. Damaged cases are nearly always attributable to many causes and the evidence supports that the Church of Scientology does far more toward Damaging people’s cases than any Splinter/Divergent group ever has.

HOW TO DETERMINE IF A PRACTICE IS DAMAGING TO A CASE

The correct method of determining if someone’s case has been harmed by a practice is to confine oneself to the actions of the person (something that can be impartially examined) rather than the person feelings, beliefs or alleged character (something largely subjective)

The following questions should be examined and answered based on honest and thorough examination, while brushing away any and all bias and rumors:

1- Is the individual, according to the world at large, as opposed  to groups he/she is associated with (due to the likelihood of mutual out-rudiments) becoming a better person? By better person is meant someone who help others and who behave in accordance to a Moral Code such as the one written in the Way to Happiness. Because delusional or unethical individuals tend to PR themselves an actual thorough and independent examination of their activities is required.

2- Is the person more successful along their dynamics? (especially the first three)

3- What is the level of Communication of the person? Is it highly destructive toward selected individuals or are they focusing on constructive activities

4- Is the person a PR artist?

5- Are the friends or associates of the individual people of Good-Will, (even if they may have made mistakes), or people actually involved in, actually PR artists and/or con men due to their destructive activities? Who are their friends? Who are their enemies?

6- Are they hypocritically posing as “Free Independent” while covertly acting as Informant for the Church of Scientology (the one organization who has publicly vowed at trying to destroy all Independent Scientologist and practitioners). Are their enemies the same as the Church of Scientology?

LAW OF EXCLUDED MIDDLE

“THE ENEMY OF MY ENEMY IS MY FRIEND”

 

Logic, in spite of the existence of the Data Series, is something largely unknown to Scientologists. The data Series written by L. Ron Hubbard were meant to complement the fundamentals of LOGIC. But most Scientologist (both within the Church and without) view it as a replacement, therefore they tend to act in a completely illogical manner.

Normal and ethical people often state that “The Enemy of my Enemy is my Friend”.

Many people who have been indoctrinated by some of the false ideas taught within the Church of Scientology tend to stick to those false ideas long after they have left or even publicly disavowed any beliefs in that organization or even its philosophy and original ideas.

It is a typically action by the same kind of people to willy-nilly provide assistance to the Church of Scientology when it seeks to malign its enemies, by providing all manner of Black PR and lies against their common enemies.

In most cases, the providing of Black PR against their perceived or imaginary enemies, in forums carefully chosen because OSA and Church agents are known to frequent them is meticulously calculated to harm its target by teh typical weapons of choice of the coward: Lies, Blackmail and defamation.

The result, uncomforted by those who have a low ability to confront Evil or Reality, is that the individuals publicly attacking the Church of Scientology Enemies by using defamation, Blackmail and lies, have become de facto collaborators of the Church of Scientology and are treated as informants and reliable sources by that organization.

The net result is to weaken the target of their hatred (often an individual with limited resources or time to defend himself) and  strengthen the Church of Scientology (an organization documented to allocate unlimited resources toward the suppression of its enemies).

The only possible conclusion is that the individuals claiming to be enemies of the Church, yet actively aid the Church in its attacks of its enemies are either incredibly stupid, hypocritical or an unholy mixture of both.

Many of the EX-Scientologist boards starting with their owners and moderators act that way. The same goes with a number of Freezone/Independent Boards, in particular those controlled by the self appointed Freezone PRs, who know very well their board is infested by OSA agents and operatives, though they profess otherwise.

The only reason a board like ESMB has been allowed to continue to exist, in spite of it numerous violations of the law, and the vast resources and connections of the Church of Scientology (and its ability to get it shut it down any day it chooses to), is that it is viewed by OSA as an invaluable tool to malign its enemies and the eagerness of those who portray themselves as Victims of Scientology to do its own dirty work. And they do it for free!

Such Church allies can be created by incompetent or reckless Freezone/Independent auditors when they bypass the case of their pc and allow them to remain stuck in earlier bad and/or traumatic experiences at the hands of the Church of Scientology, yet attempt to audit them on Upper Levels or Rundowns. The resulting Blind fury or Hatred is typically targeted at anyone who may point out, especially correctly, the technical shortcomings of their auditor (the one largely responsible for restimulating the person).

THE LIST OF ENEMIES AND SUPPRESSIVE PERSONS/GROUPS

SOED Flag ED 2830RB published on the 25 July 1992 is the last list of Suppressives published by the Church of Scientology. It proved to be such an embarrassment when it was leaked on the Internet, that the Church amended its policy of updating it and has since kept its ever-growing list of Declared Suppressive Persons, a secret.

All one has to do is look at the historical records of the history and development of Scientology or the names of LRH former close associates and confidantes to recognize a veritable “Who is Who” of the History of Scientology in that issue alone.

The Church of Scientology use blind zealots, fanatics and extremists such as those dedicating themselves at making Hatred web pages on imaginary enemies of the Church of Scientology, those stalking defectors to harass them and those who believe that spying on people of good-will to satisfy the pernicious agenda of OSA. The common denominator of all these people is a deep fear of the light of Truth and the exposing of their own crimes, lies and atrocities. That terror dominates their should so much that they become unable to recognize as an OUTPOINT (or illogic) the simple fact that anyone who sees 90% of one their former associates or comrades has all the attributes Paranoia. Paranoia is a condition largely created by having committed earlier a large number of harmful acts.

To summarize:

Labelling Splinter or Divergent Groups as Suppressive is based on lies and used as an expedient to rationalize the blatant disregard by the Church of Scientology for people rights to practice their own religion as they see fit or express their opinion.

True Suppressive Groups obviously do exist: The Nazis, Organized Crime, Al-Qaeda are a few of them, but they are never listed by the Church of Scientology in the lists of Enemies of Mankind, while their own defectors always are.

Declaring Splinter or Divergent groups as Suppressives is an entirely political tool whose main aim is to stamp out competition. Further it attempts to  maintain what is advertised as “the only road to Spiritual Freedom” and Spiritual redemption for Man as a Monopoly in the hands of a self-appointed Elite. That latter point is Ethically as reprehensible as can be, since its only possible result should it come to fruition is the Enslavement of Mankind.

Observation of the actual actions done by that Elite clearly indicates that the personal Aims of the Individuals that control that Elite have nothing to do with the purported Aims of Scientology nor its published Credo. On the contrary the aims of the Elite have mainly to do with the accumulation of wealth in the most expedient possible way (typically through the secret use of Slave labour, Sweat Shops and Intimidation) and in satisfying an insatiable thirst for Power over the souls that the Church of Scientology still controls.

The way to minimize the formation of Splinter Group is for the organization to remain open to the fruits of observation and to suggestions and to acknowledge people. Most Splinter Groups were created as a result of an unhandled upset or ARCX (Disagreement, Injustice, Invalidation). By keeping quality controls high and verifying that the proper standards and protocols are adhered to, results automatically follow and the demand for switching to wild unproven ideas will remain to a minimum. To utterly prevent the formation of Splinter or Divergent groups is simply impossible without adopting totalitarian measures and keeping a thought a police active.

If one is to be in the business of helping people achieve higher levels of self-determinism, one need to accept that fact. The Church of Scientology has become akin to a 1984 type Orwellian nightmare because it refused to understand that simple principle.

Le Mystere des voix Bulgares

The voices of Bulgarian women are divine.  Bulgarian folk music stands out with incredible  vocal performances, in particular the layered, diaphonic harmonies along with an intricate multi-layering, and the timbre of the vibrato-free female Bulgarian voices. The Bulgarian folk performances preserve the unique traits of an ancient music, most notably the delivery from the diaphragm that restricted the vocal chords, enabling the production of the distinctive tones and drones beyond the traditional (read “western”) scale, as well as delivery techniques such as Melisma – the production of a single syllable of text in a range of notes or scale of quarter tones (to Western ears, a trance-like wailing reminiscent of Arabic chants or perhaps Flamenco), grace notes and trill, which punctuate the performances with a rarely experienced agility, grace and power.

The First Man in Space- In memory of Yuri Gagarin

Pierre-Ethier-Gagarin

Yuri Alekseyevich Gagarin (Russian: Ю́рий Алексе́евич Гага́рин; IPA: [ˈjʉrʲɪj ɐlʲɪˈksʲejɪvʲɪtɕ ɡɐˈɡarʲɪn]; 9 March 1934 – 27 March 1968) was aSoviet pilot and cosmonaut. He was the first human to journey into outer space, when his Vostok spacecraft completed an orbit of the Earth on 12 April 1961. Today he would of been 79 years old.

Aside from his short stature at 1.57 metres (5 ft 2 in), one of Gagarin’s most notable traits was his smile.Many commented on how Gagarin’s smile gained the attention of crowds on the frequent tours he did in the months after the Vostok 1 mission success.

Gagarin also garnered a reputation as an adept public figure. When he visited Manchester in the United Kingdom, it was pouring rain. However, Gagarin insisted that the car hood remain back so that the cheering crowds could catch a glimpse of him. Gagarin stated, “If all these people have turned out to welcome me and can stand in the rain, so can I.” Gagarin refused an umbrella and remained standing in his open-top Bentley so that the cheering crowds could still see him.

Sergei Korolev, one of the masterminds behind the early years of the Soviet space program, later said that Gagarin possessed a smile “that lit up the Cold War”.
