OT 2 is Doublethink from Orwells 1984. I have been searching around the internet to see if I could find where LRH's came up with his inspiration for OT 2 because recently I realized that OT 2 was completely made up, a total fantasy, but even worse, it was meant to destroy a being rather than help you become this powerful bad ass like promised. When I did OT 2 I was miserable, it was a very bad experience in general. How could I have paid hard earned cash for this! I was just glad to get the whole OT Levels over with, they were a night mare for me, but once your in you can't really walk away. So I stuck it out but I have done quite a lot of reading and research since then trying figure out how LRH put this whole thing together. Somewhere along the way I realized that he just stole ideas from everyone out there. Religions, the occult and pshchiatry. For instance read the facts and tenants of Buddhism and you will recognize major similarities. But as far as OT 2 goes after I looked back on the experience I felt he was attempting to implant me, rather than my running out an implant. Well, guess what ... that is exactly what OT 2 is. He has you running over and over again the dichotomies, or another way of putting a dichotomy is Doublethink. Opposites. Your go through booklet they give you with a list of double think words or terms. You can only look at each phrase or word one at a time and do not know what is coming up next. You look at the booklet and it has the words "to be" and you run that on the meter, record your reads until you don't get any more, then you move down a line (it is covered with paper so it will be a big surprise) and next will be the opposite, "not to be" and it goes like this, "create" then "Don't create". I only ran OT 2 for a few days and then threw my hands up in the air as it was just such BS I could not continue so they called it a pass. It had a very bad impact on me though, brainwashing is no fun! There is even one of the booklets that is called "Big Being" and you run a bunch of dichotomies from that. Sound familiar??? Below I have the Wikipedia explanation. According to the novel, doublethink is: (George Orwells 1984- written in 1949. This was delivered to the population to keep them in line in the book. To know and not to know, to be conscious of complete truthfulness while telling carefully constructed lies, to hold simultaneously two opinions which cancelled out, knowing them to be contradictory and believing in both of them, to use logic against logic, to repudiate morality while laying claim to it. I have not read anything on the internet about this so I am not sure anyone has really looked at it from this perspective but the implications are quite mild boggling and would explain why so many of the OT 7's are a mess, not doing well and don't even realize it. All I can say is stay away from it.
