. The ecosystem of Scientology! Church of Scientology Scientologists in good standingIndependent ScientologistsRon's Org ScientologistsInactive ScientologistsDisaffected ScientolgistsBlown ScientologistsSquirrel ScientologistsCritical ScientologistsSP ScientologistsSo many internecine disagreements and battles! It seems very complex, but it's really not. It all boils down to one simple thing. Each species within that ecosystem has a different scripture, policy, belief or opinion on WHICH TONE LEVEL IS CORRECT regarding the Founder & Source of Scientology, L. Ron Hubbard. The first 3 on that list (above) have some pretty adamant or even fanatical beliefs about which is the right tone level towards The Commodore. They will even declare and condemn the wrong tone level to be a "suppressive act against all mankind" or a "high crime"! The last 2 on the list (critical/SP Scientologists) are so brazen that they even adopt tone levels that are not found on Hubbard's scientifically perfect and complete standard Tone Scale. (e.g. indignation, contempt, resentment, righteous indignation, et al) I wondered what my own "tone level" was towards Hubbard. I had to think about it a bit, but then I decided it must be fractionally right between two other tone levels: 1.1112 ........ SERENITY OF SARDONICNESS1. 111 .........(NEWLY DISCOVERED, UNNAMED TONE LEVEL)1.11 ............JOY OF SCHADENFREUDE1.1 ..............COVERT HOSTILITY1.0 .......... FEAR Here are a couple questions to consider: What tone level do you think is appropriate towards our infallible messiah & sole savior of this planet, on this planet? What tone level do you think you are in towards Mankind's Greatest Friend? ps: meanwhile, I am still trying to come with a damn name for my tone level, LOL .
