200 to 300 of course.
Always found this data in contradiction with the birthday game idiocy.
Maybe a reason why this book has been gone out of print.
Tech of LRH will dissolve in the future, thats what I think.
Parts of it will be "univerlized", that is pruned from his name and the name of his organizations.
That's right. There's some useful stuff there, too, relatively speaking. Most of the entry level stuff and actually even a lot of the tech up to a point is more beneficial than destructive. Just compare it to other extant philosophies... At least LRH condensed some of the key points in many areas to something rather easily assimilatable, before he went off to the wild blue yonder.
Not that I'll be interested in it for a long time coming, but a new philosophy based on the sensible parts of his work would not necessarily be a bad thing. Obviously it could not be called Scientology, as that is an all-or-nothing proposition. I guess that's what all the "squirrel" groups are all about. (BTW, I hate the word "squirrel," due to LRH's definition of it; isn't there a better one for it -- to describe the offshoots from Scn in general, not just the FZ?)
I'm sure having been declared an SP sort of makes me keep my distance to the lot of it. Still, in any objective review, I find many good theories in Scientology. Likely the exact same ones that got me to believe in it in the first place. (Sucker!)
