Very interesting OP!
As always, the COS will create its own wiggle room in responding to challenges that nothing happened from SuperPower.
Their likely first path of retreat & equivocation will be the specific "EPs" that SuperPower (and/or its various rundowns) ask people to attest to. I have no idea what the "EP" is, but if I was designing the hoax, I'd probably use something like. . .
Significantly improved ability to be aware of my own perception.
It is tricky. It doesn't claim that their perception is improved, just that they are more aware of their perception. LOL.
Kinda like attaining the state of Clear, which the PC later sadly learns is only on the "1st Dynamic". Clears, nonetheless, are fantastically able and supernaturally advanced beings--until someone walks into the room (3rd Dynamic) or there is any MEST in the area (6th Dynamic).
Spot on again Hoaxie - and when talking to a Scientologist about "Scientology NOT working - not seeing any clears or OT's - I received the response - "Scientology is personal and someone else's gains cannot be measured by what you expect them to be! "
Of course - this person had most of the "wins" I listed below! In fact, every scientologist I know "still in" is having these amazing wins!! I should want them too? WTF??
But I thought this was a SCIENCE?
So if I see people getting sick, divorced, filing bankruptcy, losing homes to foreclosures....I should continue spending $500,000 on going up the Bridge....because they had gains...we just can't SEE them?
You reminded me of the "wins" I would hear from people..and they were nothing that could be measured or seen by the naked eye...only in a L Ron Hubbard Petri dish under a high powered microscope under the supervision of COB!
