    TORONTO - Day 3

    The photos on Facebook have slowed right down today, but I have two funny ones from Jamie DeWolf (thanks for the permission to share) that he posted on Monday and Tuesday. One shows his bedroom at the conference hotel which has been turned into a temporary recording studio:

    "Presto magic, flipped the beds against the walls and turned my hotel room into a film set! Now how to convince the maids it's not for porn?"

    The second shows a sign in the hotel:

    "Wow is this a conference hall or some bizarre fetish fantasy choose your own adventure? Which room would you want to be in?"

    Firstly a round-up of what Chris Shelton spoke about yesterday. Chris has posted a superb review at the Bunker of the speech he gave about the Truth Rundown.

    Leah Remini was the recipient of this most awful of thought-stopping techniques after writing a KR on David Miscavige as reported by Tony Ortega in July 2013.


    Mat Pesch commented at the Bunker about the Truth Rundown:

    Chuck Beatty said (Bunker):

    Over 1000 hours!

    Jesse Prince was back on stage in Toronto this morning. Jesse was Senior "Technical Terminal" when OTVIII was released. The Bunker's Skiesareblue has this to say about Jesse's talk:

    Scientology's attitudes towards medical treatment are being discussed this afternoon.

    Tory personally knew 12 young Scientologists who killed themselves.

    Afternoon session: The Second-Generation Experience with Nora Crest and Chris Shelton.

    This evening Jamie DeWolf will perform his show about his great-grandfather, L Ron Hubbard.

    An extra photo from last night (thanks to Pete Griffiths) of the cocktail hour in Toronto.

    Nora Crest as the Statue of Liberty :)

    Vaquera tells us that during Nora's talk she was brought to tears talking about the indoctrination of children and her project "From Cradle to Slave." Jon goes up on stage to deliver hugs. Applause all around.

    Thanks to Spike Robinson for Day 3's "Schedule of Events".

    The main crime of $cientology children
    in the view of the cruel Guru :confused2:

    The ''shame'' of the shames!

    I hope $cientology children (thetans in small meat bodies) may heal that sens of being unwanted and neglected that $cientology imprinted within them
    especially when they encounter normal society and experience true love and any individual is important to another..I hope...
    Can they wognite the sickness was in the guru's mind and his true believers followers...? :unsure: Deep suffering of a child takes time and lot of care to heal

    When I am able to, I want to write a post, or several, about the Getting Clear Conference.
    Professor Jim Beverley and Jon Atack assembled a remarkable group of people with an extraordinary range and depth of knowledge and experience.

    Fortunately for us, as well as for posterity, it was recorded and will become an important part of the historical record.

    It was unfortunate, but understandable, that OSA declined to send someone to speak, as Jim Beverley had hoped, but that

    really would have been unprecedented.

    Scientology is quite simply incapable of competing in the free and open marketplace of ideas.

    The exposure of lies, half-truths, contradictions, fraud and criminality that form Scientology accumulate with such astonishing speed, that it is difficult, at times, to keep up

    (Witness Sylvia Stanard's debacle at the Chautauqua Institute before an audience with rudimentary knowledge.)

    Consider the role of Aleistair Crowley in Hubbard's development, and read the quote below which both Jamie Kennedy(Nib's grandson) and Jon Atack confirm as accurate.

    Does anyone know when YouTube videos or DVDs
    of the event will be available? What's the plan?

    View attachment 10698

    Chris Shelton in his most recent video mentioned
    the event would not be a YouTube release, but rather
    a product that could be purchased. Pay-to-stream or
    DVDs, I'm guessing. He said there was about 30 hours
    of speaker content. (Might take a bit to edit and package
    all of that, I'm thinkin'.)

    My 11-DVD box set shoop earlier was a pretty good guess. :coolwink:

    PS: Idea
    . . . publish all the videos on a USB memory stick
    that people could purchase from you and play on their
    computers. Easy to produce and mail.

    I've read multiple conflicting explanations.

    Apparently, Jim Beverley owns the copyright. What will happen when people who gave talks want to post their talks, and others' talks, on their sites remains to be seen.

    It would be a shame if the 30 hours of talks were not available for broad public examination on places such as YouTube.
