Anyone for some Sci Fi
Hubbard and one of his sons were quite concerned about the solar system and this planet being invaded. This is one of the false fears that caused the formation of the paramilitary organisation known as the -Sea Org.
So Hubbard and his Gang were preparing for the arrival of an exterestial group known as the Markabians, which Hubbard doesn't care for. His affinities lie in the direction of their arch-rival "The Galactic Confederation". Both of these groups have dwindled and disintegrated in power into little regional groups, such as the Espinol Confederacy, and The Interplanetary League. A number of fractionalized groups have risen up and usurped quite a bit of power from these two old rival empire systems, which have dominated this galaxy for over 81 Billion years.
The star system we are involved in (called a "local group" in astronomy) operates loosely as a mild confederation. It has been held together this way for a couple hundred thousand years. The older confederation it replaced went back 100 million years on this star group, which contains about 30 planets with highly-evolved societies which have operated in relative harmony with each other.
Earth has borne the distinction of being one of the prettiest of the 30, but also the most savage. Things just never seem to be peaceful on this planet.
At this particular time, of the 29 remaining civilised planets, 11 of them have similar projects to "Scientology" under way, complete with little L. Ron Hubbard-leaders.
The technology up through OT I exists on 7, where the evolution is occurring. This data is being released on a -trial basis at a number of localities.
In these 7 other instances there has been no friction with the governments, public, and no paramilitary organisation has been formed.
They are very much like the Church was here in the 1955- 64 period. On the other 4 (earth being one of the 4), 2 are faltering (one other than earth), and 2 have been defeated and closed up shop. In studying the differences between success and failure, one cannot help but notice that on the 7 that are doing well the alteration of fundamental data is about half of that on the 4 failures.
The Galactic Confederation was actually a very hypocritical empire. L. Ron Hubbard worked on a research project for thousands of years in one of their largest libraries. He has been working on the same research project, off and on, since. The research project was how to turn people around, and how to restore the state of Operating Thetan.
I find it interesting Nex.
It explains alot but its heresay, i dont know if its true or not, but i had often wondered in the past similar ideas as this.
Geoffrey C Filbert authored it.
quite an interesting writer minus the cowboy larrikenism of Capt Bill.
I can never see Filbert's name now without being reminded of the story entitled "The Foundation Chaplain" from page 116 of Dart Smohen: The Real Story (http://www.paulsrabbit.com/DartSmohenRealStory_20081216.pdf) (free download from www.paulsrabbit.com).
Ah so that was Geoffrey Filbert, no wonder he was on the orange juice.
Have you read his Book Paul?
