The vaccination thing was, in fact, a commonly held conspiracy theory when I was in the church, because that is where I learned of it.
Things I also remember and there were something called 'LRH advice' that were for sea org only, that I would hear about and I think I read some at the time... Maybe it was in a Flag Order format, I don't really remember. There was the stuff on fragrances... and I'll be dammed if there was ANY good hair product, especially conditioner, that was available fragrance free at the time I think there was only a few options... man that sucked. there was also stuff that was more word of mouth like the vaccinations, and on aspartame / NutraSweet.
I'm sure there was more, but I can not think of it right now.
There were a collection of instructions from LRH which were originally directed to the LRH Communicators on how to set up an LRH office. This is probably where the attitude towards the avoidance of things with a strong scent or perfume started. He had OT perceptions and was very sensitive to odors. There was also a period where he didn't want anything metal around, which again may have been due to some special perception or a temporary sensitivity that developed during an advanced phase of auditing or tech research. I have a vague recollection that this was fairly well known in the Scientology community and some people became more self conscious about metal hypersensitivity and perfume when they reached the OT Levels, having to take off their Clear Bracelets, etc. After the creation of the Commodore's Messenger Organization my impression was that the LRH Comms became kind of redundant and focused on cleaning, ongoing maintenance of the R Offices and refreshing his obligatory pack of Kool Menthols but the CMO did the heavy lifting of designing and constructing them. In either case, these kinds of instructions would have been circulating from the first moment someone anywhere set up an R Office and they were required in every org.
I still need someone to explain to me how Kools don't stink, OT or not.
