Don't know about any Scientology connection but it's also eerily reminiscent of Mormonism whereby you get baptized and quickly fed into the system where on one mid week night you have 'visiting teachers" come into your home and teach you a lesson from some area of the LDS doctrine followed quickly be another night where you actually become the visiting teacher yourself and are expected to go into the home of an LDS member and teach them a lesson. From what I remember it is encouraged that you re-teach upon others the very lesson that was just taught to you due to what limited familiarity you would have with any other LDS doctrines. In this way the lesson you'd been taught becomes reinforced as part of your own mindset and vocabulary out of sheer necessity when you are scrambling to come up with anything at all coherent to say about LDS beliefs. You tend to simply regurgitate what you were forced to swallow the night before only now as part of who you are becoming and what your beliefs are becoming as laid out before you by the skillful conscripted force feeding of Mormonism. It's really a scam head-trip that you'd never suspect it to be when listening to the angelic verses of the Mormon Tabernacle Choir at each holiday season.
