. . ANSWER: One must assume that if Scientology is booming on other planets, they must certainly be Ideal Planets! This exactly parallels other known-and-proven stable datums in Scientology, such as the wonderfully theta notion of "uplines". def. uplines - noun: 1. Higher on the org board. 2. The location in the MEST universe where senior management Operating Thetans effortlessly apply standard ethics, tech and admin with stunning success, soaring power-trending graphs and unprecedented expansion on this planet. Uplines is the happiest place imaginable where the most uptone & ethical beings in the universe live, work and consistently make it go right in a blissfully Ideal environment that has no devT, counter-intention, other-intention, HE&R, entheta, insanity, war or criminality. The key concept in all of this is "elsewhere". -- Planets are flourishing & prospering, it's all happening--just not on this planet. -- Ideal Orgs are booming, just not the Ideal Org you are in. -- Beings are attaining spectacularly OT states--with supernatural powers of exteriorization, levitation and far more--just not you the being, or the beings in your area. Notably, on Hubbard's TONE SCALE, each tone level has an "awareness characteristic" assigned to it; and "elsewhere" happens to be the one designated for the tone level known as covert hostility ("1.1"). SCIENTIFIC CONCLUSION: Scientology and Scientologists everywhere are experiencing miracles beyond your wildest dreams! Just not where you are.
