Scientology's cosmos shares this common trait with the Abrahamic religions, it contains at least two Falls. There's the cateclysm of Zenu when our ancient selves were subjected to brainwashing before being left to rot on Tygiac. But, prior to this, and more fundamental, there is the primordial fall of our godlike selves, the Thetans. We possessed complete control over mass, energy, space, and time. However, as a means of entertainment the Thetans created new worlds for themselves in which to live, and by those worlds they were ultimately ensnared. They fell into a dream from which they could not wake. The Thetans had paradise, and they lost it. So, what was their sin? It wasn't pride and envy (After all, they were already gods). It was not defiance or rebellion against righteous authority; it was more of a blunder. It was, in fact, a blunder born of boredom. I think Hubbard may have possessed a profound fear and contempt of the nihilism toward which this boredom of his gods points. At any rate, Scientology shares this common trait with many world religions, the notion of an aboriginal fall from a perfect world into a world darkness, fear, confusion, suffering and death.
