Idle Morge, thank you. What crimes did you witness in ASHO? (ASHO is the one in Sussex, right?)
When I was a staff member I used to get a little offended when publics outright refused to join staff. I thought to myself that the only reason that they're getting Scientology is those staff members and it seemed ungrateful that they wouldn't consider doing the same. But seems like it all turned out for the best for you - They stopped you from getting Scientology, you stopped wanting Scientology!
What's your stance on Scientology now?
I've had a hard time finding a group I feel like I could fit into in the freezone, too many of them seem to be of the feeling that the problem with the Church is that they don't adhere _enough_ to Ron's work or the existing tech . [snip]
Likable? I think you must have me mixed up with someone else ... (but use your ignore button if you feel the need ).
I was just joking and having fun. I honestly enjoy your words. Despite how awful grumpy I almost always come across...I'm actually always laughing.
Ok, how to get this back to Only one way to be a Scn'ist? ahhhh....I'm thinking.
On the topic of the definition of Floating Needle http://www.forum.exscn.net/showthread.php?16164-Rhythmic-Sweep-of-the-Dial:
"Floating needle is a *rhythmic* sweep of the dial at a slow even pace of the needle. That's what an FN is. No other definition is correct." (HCOB 21 July 78.) From 'The Technical Dictionary'.
According to Jesse Prince, from 'The ever changing tech of Scientology' and regarding six month sec checks:
"...this bulletin was effectively canceled by LRH himself... that's where it all started. All these actions were taken to increase income. It is the same with the six month sec checks...
"But I want to make it clear that the whole idea came from LRH not from Miscavige. Miscavige is continuing to carry out LRH's orders...
"...Miscavige is doing his best to forward Command Intention, which is contained in the huge LRH orders database of the INCOMM computer system of Scientology..."

It was obvious to me during my first week after reading Dianetics when I asked if anyone had ever tried modern EEG in conjunction with auditing
Ron Fitch of the Freezone Group of Alameda (formerly Monterey) is doing something like that. He attached electrodes to my head connected to a brainwave analyzer. Interesting, although I didn't consider it particularly useful.
the Freezone ... some things I don't understand about it.
The Disconnection Policy - LRH wrote it, isn't it being applied in the FZ? Hubbard also wrote that if one doesn't disconnect, he is to be disconnected from. Is that being applied? I respect religious beliefs but that there is the classic cult technique, in my opinion.
In RONS Orgs most of what LRH has written is accepted. But there's a lot of CBR ("Captain Bill") tech in there, too. No one there considers CBR tech to be "incorrect technology"; other than that, there is no incorrect technology allowed.KSW 1 - In my opinion, the essence of Scientology is KSW 1. I'm not sure how the Freezoners can refer to themselves as those who apply LRH policies, if they don't apply this one. And if they would, wouldn't they slowly turn into regular orgs?
All other LRH policies such as word clearing and other technical references - Are they being applied? Is there a Div 5 (Qualifications)?
It was actually SO liberating to realize I don't HAVE to be a Scientologist. Up until then I was sure I will be a Scientologist for the rest of my life, because I thought so much like one that it became a part of me.
I got my mind back when I discovered I can just stop being a Scientologist. I was finally able to lose all these restricting axioms. This, in effect, made me think that the reactive mind is not the only thing you supposedly lose in Scientology... But in fact your entire mind, your ability to really think for yourself.
Meh, Scientologists wouldn't agree. "What do you mean, I've done the Evaluator Series, I am a qualified thinker!" LOL
I would imagine that it would take quite a while to develop develop techniques for reading brain waves, I do think its possible and is a worthwhile area of research, though I think there is still a long way to go here.
