    Sounds more like LSD than Heroin to me - and I'm not being flippant or trying to be funny.

    I've been to several Grateful Dead concerts and saw some folks there with some real eyes of the world looks, but now I'm beginning to think maybe those folks weren't on LSD but were really OT's there to keep the crowd in line. I do have to admit I was under the influence and my mindset might have had something to do with what I saw in those people's eyes;)

    I never observed any similar differences in OTs. But it
    seemed to me that plenty of TRs had similar effects. This
    should not be surprising, as any intensive and lengthy training
    improves ability in the area its directed at. See Bruce lee for example. Also Scn involves various types of mental

    The best example I ever saw was a fellow staff member.\she had very low self esteem and generally little esteem
    from others. She saw Scn as a chance to remedy this.
    She failed even the slack requirements to qualify for staff.
    I worked with her to improve her scores and I never saw anyone try harder, and eventually she passed. Some years
    later I met her when she was staff at St. Hill. She was far
    brighter and confident and her eyes were noticeably
    different and brighter. I spent an afternoon at Alan's
    ranch and most there were similar. Alan probably did
    rigorous TR training.

    I thought the only requirement for staff was that you had a pulse.

    Oh dear some of you really should stick with crayons and teddy bears. All im talking about is the basics of Buddhism and Taoism. Or have you not managed to penetrate the Hart of those subject's yet.

    You've only been here five minutes and you're insulting us already. I suggest you learn a bit about the basics of spelling and punctuation, never mind Buddhism and Taoism.

    By the way, have you ever heard the phrase 'wild goose chase'? To make it easy for you I'm providing you with a link to the wikipedia page. I strongly recommend you take a look.

    "The Diabolically Dinky DB Dictionary"

    GPM -noun: 1. Goals Problems Mass 2. In Scientology, the imposition of impossible goals causing unsolvable problems to a large mass of inordinately gullible DBs (donor beings). (example: Ordering a DB to pay $500,000 to re-acquire their dormant godlike supernatural powers which is then followed by another order to sell 7.2 billion other DBs on this planet the same "bridge package" and thereby "clear the planet"--after which they are given another order to "salvage this sector".)

    Yeah the TR's were the main deal but I think I fit it together from a couple of responses that OT's believed they knew what existed deep inside and unbeknownst to we mere mortals from their OT levels.
    They held a feeling of massive superiority over us and believed they were looking deep inside each of us and saw us all en-wrapped in a massive bt and cluster case load and their stares came off very intrusive and unwanted.
    They were attempting to trespass upon our souls and we could feel it and it didn't feel good.

    The GPM tech on the SHSBC really hung a lot of students up. When I routed on, there were lots of students 'bogged' on the GPM materials, and the same students were still studying it when I graduated
    I always figgered that the Clearing Course handled a persons own GPMs, and opened the door to electronic implants.

    Throughout history people have reported the scent of flowers when visited by visions of people from beyond the grave. I don't know what causes it, but it's a well-known metaphysical phenomenon that for some reason is controversial among this learned crowd. I've always thought of it as the fragrance of spirit. The Catholics gave it a name:

    Well you assume because you got nothing out of scientology that nobody did. You imply that because scientology contains a lot of evil, that it did not contain any good. Is that not black and white thinking?

    And I'm supposed to believe you stayed in all those years without any personal benefit to yourself? What's the best ad hom for that? Or is self-honesty just not your strong suit?

    Oh you do exaggerate.

    Not throughout history, not all people beyond the grave smelling good, either. Youv'e got it all mixed up, you believe too much stuff on the Internet.

    Not flowers, but specifically the scent of ROSES is a Biblical Christian belief/claim/experience/myth. It has nothing to do with Hubbard, OTs, spirits returned from the dead, etc. It's consistent with the Biblical story of Jesus as the Rose of Sharon and Jesus and angels reportedly having the scent of fresh roses when they are in a room. Roses are supposed to be the perfect flower. They also have a specific, unmistakable and unforgettable scent. As a note, Satan is claimed to smell like rotten eggs when he's around, too, which is at least consistent with the myths since sulphur smells like rotten eggs when it's in a confined, damp space, like underground.

    If you want to talk about how dead people and ghosts smelled throughout history, oy, the vampire myth goes way back and they apparently smelled like the grave and other dead people smelled, well.. very DEAD.

    I'm sure if Hubbard appeared to anyone, he'd really stink up a room. :omg::nooo:

    I counted six times you used "you" or "your" in those three sentences. Aggressive, much?


    You're such a good Lil' Scibot. Congratulations for not thinking for yourself. :congratulations:

    Heaven forbid you hold an actual conversation and honestly discuss something that doesn't make sense when you can just attack instead! Why think, when you can just do what Ron says? It's so much easier than thinking for yourself, isn't it? :lol:

    To answer your question, Scientology stole far more from me than it ever gave me. What it stole cannot be replaced. It is gone. Life is precious and so are our loved ones. My life is precious and I would never, ever waste a single minute doing Scientology again and hope I can help others by warning them so that they don't end up wasting years of their youth and lives with it like I did.

    Scientology is a scam. There is far more to be gained elsewhere and you don't have to suffer for it or make your loved ones suffer, either.

    Terril, one day I hope you wake up and realize that your honest caring about the girl and believing in her is what helped her. YOU helped her.

    You would have done the same thing for someone if you never heard of Scientology just because you have a good heart. Put credit where credit is due and stop giving it all to the dead conartist. YOU are a good person. YOU helped the girl believe in herself.

    What a terrible shame she ended up on staff, though. :sad: Did she ever get out?
