Shiny & Free
I realized the other day that the purpose of the OT eligibility process is to cement loyalty to the cult ONLY.
Those who show some kind of other-loyalty to themselves, their families, their co-workers, etc. that conflicts or distracts in any way with loyalty to CofS are discarded and not invited until they relinquish those loyalties and become loyal to the cult ONLY.
The Pre-OT has their attention on getting the OT Level. But the real process is being run on them during the eligibility procedure. With their attention on the OT Level they want and are reaching for, Ron is installing what he really wants installed in the Scientologist.
It's a prestidigitation technique vital to the installation of positive suggestions, false identities and "implants" (as Hubbard called them).
I'm glad you realised that.
