Sorting Out Society

2 April 2017

The “Thinking Out Loud” category is for hypotheses, ideas, opinions. Though of course these are always influenced, or colored, by prior training and study, I put a post here when I am unsure of the facts, or don’t care to be academically rigorous.

Sketch I made for art class, about 1970. I picked it to symbolize the effects that “bad things” have on life and the individual.

A problem of money

What got me going on this line of thinking was a difficulty I was having obtaining funding for a project. I thought to myself: Someone doesn’t want to spend this money; they want to sit on it instead. And that lead me to the subject of banking.

Banking

Banking, it is said, started when tradesmen (this is the story I heard) wanted someplace to store their gold securely. The “banker” stepped forward, offering to provide this service. In exchange, he would be allowed to loan out the money to others, and collect interest payments on these loans. Interestingly, according to Wikipedia, originally the most secure places for such deposits were temples and palaces. But we won’t go down that road just yet.

Here we have a situation where a professional-level service is invented to fulfill a need. The service consists basically of amassing deposits (and safekeeping them) which one can then earn money on. It is presumed the need arose due to 1) lack of space at home to store such items, or 2) fear for the security of the assets.

Today, money exists as figures in accounting books. And those books are actually stored on computers. There is no longer any great need to provide security for currency. All one must do is secure the computers.

Traditional banking still exists, but cash deposits bring back virtually no earnings to the depositor. Investment banking, on the other hand, has skyrocketed. The whole society has been pushed into making investments and buying on credit. Why? Keeping deposits safe doesn’t make money, especially when they are only numbers in a computer. Traditional banking can still pay off, but there is much more to be made managing investment portfolios and offering short-term credit at very high interest rates. This work relies on the existence of asset pools, and managers of these pools are often rewarded according to the size their pool. Even if you could sell some assets to buy, say, land (which works under a different system), the modern banker would prefer to loan you the money to buy the land, with your assets as collateral. It would be simpler for the land buyer to just sell one asset in order to buy the other, but is not in the interest of the bankers to operate that way.

Back to Basics

The original need for banking, then, arose – we are to suppose – from an uncertainty concerning the security of real assets (gold). Why would anyone have this uncertainty? Because people existed who were willing and able to steal such things from other people who had acquired them more-or-less honestly. Those people are commonly called “criminals.” They have always been a major nuisance in any society. They are willing to break the most basic rules, or morals, in a society. Why? That is a question to be answered elsewhere. It HAS been answered, but for the purposes of this discussion, it is irrelevant.

Let’s say you had a criminal of somewhat unusual intelligence. What might he be attracted to do, say, in the banking scenario above? One thing he could do would to become a banker. Then he could hire some hoodlums (criminals of leser intelligence, we might imagine) to go around town and steal precious things from people’s houses. He would then advertise his services, noting the recent increase in the crime rate. He would have to keep his connection to the hoodlums a closely-guarded secret. And in such a wise, he would attract more business to his bank.

Application of the criminal modus operandi (MO) to other fields

Mishaps, crime, sickness, hunger, disputes and war are some of the big problems that society must deal with. Smart criminals could secretly cause such things to happen, then offer services to “protect” people from the bad effects of these things. In modern times, criminals have even been accused of causing bad weather, floods, earthquakes, and ecological collapse. For them it would seem like “good business,” would it not?

What professions these days offer such services?

  • Lawyers
  • Doctors
  • Insurance Brokers
  • Psychiatry and Psychology
  • The military and arms manufacturers
  • Police
  • Governments
  • Educators
  • Preachers

All of the above fields are subject to pressure from the criminal world and can turn criminal. In other words, they offer services based on the fear that something bad will happen. Most people, though, would not be interested in causing such bad things to happen. Only the criminals would.

The real essentials

All an honest society of human (or similar) beings would need to survive – even prosper – would be the following:

  • Food (and water)
  • Shelter (housing and community buildings)
  • Clothing sufficient for seasonal weather variations
  • Transport
  • Systems for handling waste
  • Means of communication
  • Quiet times
  • Opportunities to play
  • Opportunities for spiritual growth

How, then, did we get governments, lawyers, war, insurance companies and psychiatry? It traces back to the criminal and his origins.

Recent discoveries support these observations

Hubbard was the first researcher I studied who really laid out the basics for me. But others before and more commonly after him have reiterated those basic findings.

The human personality is immortal and capable of remembering anything it has ever experienced. Thus, a simple process of sharing experience could ultimately replace education as we now know it. It could also replace all the self-important “research institutions” that seem to look and look but never find the answers. Of course, this ability to remember must be unlocked. That’s where spiritual development comes in. And who was pushing the inability to remember? Criminals, of course. You wouldn’t want someone getting murdered, then coming back, going to the police, and telling them exactly how it happened and who did it. (Variations on this have actually occurred.)

Hubbard adds that the being is capable of knowing anything that can be experienced. On an esoteric level, this indicates that anything is possible. On a more practical level, it means that the plagues of man caused by criminals or otherwise could in theory all be dealt with at the spiritual level. This even includes healing of the body.

People are basically good. They are willing to play the game of human life and cooperate in doing so. All the basic requirements of the game could be provided based on this willingness alone. There is no real evidence that any of the professions listed above are in fact indispensable. There is only evidence that in a world where criminals go undetected and unexposed, these extra functions become apparently necessary.

Huge numbers of people on Earth and elsewhere live out their lives doing nothing but the essentials, as listed above. Some never experience any major criminal activity. Others do and bounce back. Some less fortunate get sucked into the criminal system of die at the hands of criminals. These could be as much as 1/4 or more of the population of this planet. That’s too many. With better understanding of and control over the criminal, most of those adversely affected could be returned to happiness.

Happiness, you could say, is the overcoming of not unknowable obstacles toward a known goal.
– LRH, 1954

The New Human

15 March 2017

I have finally gotten hold of a copy of “The New Human: Awakening to our Cosmic Heritage” by Mary Rodwell. As mentioned in my last article on Mary, the term New Human in its Latin form Homo novis was introduced by L. Ron Hubbard in 1952 to describe a person who had received a good run of Dianetics and Scientology processing and was much better off as a result.

Mary’s use of the term is a bit different. She uses it to describe a person who to some degree is aware of its ET connections and feels it is here on some sort of mission to help humanity.

I haven’t read the book yet; just most of the first chapter. It’s a bit difficult for me because from my viewpoint it goes very slow. My general points about how Mary and others of her background are approaching this subject all still apply. Needless to say, she is still totally unaware of Hubbard’s work.

Is a New Age really coming?

I cannot say that I am a student of the New Age in any formal sense. Yet I have contacted some of its personalities and websites in the hope of finding people receptive to the idea of exploring Hubbard’s work.

It is thought by some to be a CIA-inspired movement (like the Hippies and LSD) to give people with a more “open mind” some material to focus on that could help The Managers (as I like to call them) keep such people under control.

Hubbard is not New Age and so is rejected by the New Age. However, many Scientologists identify with the New Age because of its interest in “spiritual awakening,” health through proper diet and nutrition, and non-drug handlings for many human problems.

However, another aspect of the New Age is its quasi-religious belief in Ascension. In English, Ascension generally refers to the biblical event by the same name. Thus, it is a bodily ascent. You actually physically go somewhere else. In UFOlogy this is usually referred to as being picked up by a space ship.

This idea of Ascension then ties back to the materialistic philosophy of Evolution, as in, “humanity is evolving and as a result will some day ascend.” This tie-in is a huge warning sign to me. Materialism is generally opposed to ideas that emphasize the spiritual.

And in many ways, the most traditional ideas of Ascension do not emphasize the spiritual. You physically leave. However, many commentators traditionally associated with the New Age movement have either rejected it entirely as just another control operation (George Kavassalis and Lisa M. Harrison) or have modified their ideas of what “Ascension” as a global phenomenon might really consist of. They all, however, tend to insist that we are “evolving.” Well, of course, in plain English terminology, we are evolving. However, in plain English terms, that doesn’t necessarily mean that we are getting better.

Are the Ancient Teachings valid?

Another emphasis of New Age people is on “ancient teachings.” Some may have even studied these teachings. The “new” messages from ET tend to confirm the “validity” of those teachings.

But why should ET be so interested in confirming the validity of a set of teachings that never really worked out for us here on Earth, and were probably put there by ET in the first place? New Agers tend to not see or ignore the logical conundrum involved here.

So what we have is in many ways a new religion that hearkens back to our “ancient roots.” And that’s all I see really going on here. It’s a control system for a New Age, upgraded with all the latest hip technology terms, but nevertheless basically designed to put us on a treadmill were we will happily stay put.

You see: A lot of these teachings, just like more modern ones, like Evolution, have very little real data backing them up. There is a lot of effort to concoct such data. But you look beneath that effort, and you don’t find any data, you find what looks more like a propaganda operation. It has been documented that some of the original “evidence” for human evolution (from apes) was faked. Other pieces of it are so tenuous they really do not stand up to any great scrutiny. What we know is that many different hominids lived on Earth. And that’s really all we know.

The latest Disclosure push

David Wilcock and Corey Goode are in the forefront of a push for Disclosure.

Just a few days ago, David released a video of parts of a presentation he gave in Los Angeles about a month earlier. One of the purposes of that presentation was to link the history of one of the ET groups that have been on Earth (which he calls the “pre-Adamites”) to groups that have so far been the most successful in dictating how Earth is being managed. This is supposed to explain why they have such an anti-human approach to Earth, even though they are currently humans like all the rest of us.

This link is conjecture. And the Reptilians are also involved in this story, and are often identified (incorrectly?) with one of the pre-Adamite factions. But the point is, there is a push going on to get certain data out to the public. And it is affecting parts of the older New Age movement in various ways. This new information has a lot of intense political and historical data involved with it – as well as some technology data. That wasn’t the traditional New Age approach. David struggles with the political aspects of what he is helping to release. It’s obviously something he’s not used to, not trained in. He recently had a political scientist Dr. Michael Salla on his Cosmic Disclosure show with Corey Goode. And he seemed comfortable with what Salla was talking about, so apparently he is learning as he goes along.

But what all this is doing is connecting the airy-fairy old New Age to the hard-nosed political students of the old Old Age. And some of them are learning each others’ data.

So what we have is a propaganda push connected to a political struggle that are both moving forward at this time. A few are aware of this link, while others, such as Mary Rodwell, I am sure are quite unaware of it. People like David Wilcock have been changing their expectations for how this will all play out on Earth. He has gotten “into” the political struggle aspect of the whole thing, so has some awareness that relative positions could change as the struggle develops. What I’m not sure he fully grasps yet is the traditional willingness of political players to tell various publics almost anything to gain their support and cooperation. For example, the Reptilians have the support and cooperation of certain human groups probably because of promises they have made to those groups. Will those promises be kept? That’s anybody’s guess. But the same thing could just as easily be happening on the “other side.” Wilcock is convinced that those who are for disclosure and against the Reptilians are basically pro-humanity and will also support a program of spiritual development. That may be true of the humans involved. But the ETs? It’s hard to say. Even the New Humans of Mary Rodwell’s books might not completely be what they appear to be, or what she wishes they were.

Using lies as facts

As usual, many people are following the faulty mental habit of putting up value judgements with their observations. I am learning that this is because most people are afraid to observe (communicate) to the extent necessary to get the understanding of any given situation that they should really have. Though this is ultimately a problem of conditioning, it can be overcome to some extent by effective training. Very few on Earth have had that training.

So what we still have on Earth, in spite of everything that has been happening, is the old pattern of people using weak facts to support strong belief systems. That game is not designed for real improvement. It’s not really designed to be much more than an interesting treadmill. A few are working for something better than that. I wish there were more.

Mary Rodwell

14 November 2016

I just got Mary’s first book in the mail today so time to make a mention.

I became aware of her when she was interviewed recently by Kerry Cassidy (26 Oct 2016). Probably roughly my age, she’s a Brit who moved to Australia at the beginning of the 1990s. She was trained in the UK as an RN (Registered Nurse), probably in the early 1980s (I can’t get a complete bio on her). She moved up to advanced counseling training around 1988 (based on what she told Paola Harris in 2013 – 25 years before that). She worked as a counsellor (they spell it with two Ls in the UK) until 1994 when she moved into private practice (per her ACERN bio). She founded ACERN (Australian Close Encounter Resource Network) at about that time, and she has concentrated since then in the phenomenon of the ET-human connection.

As a researcher with traditional schooling, she has followed the path of many with that background: Refers to non-traditional psychologies (like that of Jung); Use of meditation practices; Communicates with the vocabulary and mindset of the New Age. In other words, she is totally unaware of Hubbard’s work.

For at least a year she has been touring to promote her new book and concept, the New Human, which she introduced in an article by that name in 2006, and is included in my copy of her book Awakening, which was originally published in 2002, but updated in 2010. Her new book – obviously – has been written, but it has not yet been published.

Parallels to Hubbard’s work, but 50 years later!

This Homo novis is limited in his self-determinism by all the economic and social restrictions of an aberrated society. He is not free of food, clothing or shelter.

Compared to a Homo sapiens, Homo novis is very high and godlike. Compared to a truly self-determined being, Homo novis is an ant ready to die under anybody’s misstep.
(A History of Man, p 62, 1952)

Mary’s Latin name for the New Human, as suggested by parapsychology researcher John White, is Homo Noeticus. He probably came up with this in the 1970s.

Mary’s book includes a chapter on implants.

As detailed in Scientology: A History of Man, there are many electronic implants on the whole track. In other words, any preclear has, in the last few thousand years, been placed in an electronic field and rendered null, void and obsessed by very heavy “electrical” currents.
(Scientology 8-80, p 30, 1952)

In the New Age, and as discussed in Mary’s book, implants are physical items or non-physcal “thought packages” installed by certain ET visitors to monitor or control human subjects. The New Age has not mastered the art and technology of deep remembering, so even though they know that reincarnation normally involves a memory wipe, they have no idea that they could restore past memories that might still be valid or useful today, and show no great curiosity in this direction. Per Hubbard, this attitude is largely the result of implants, as he defines them.

Mary’s emphasis

While Hubbard worked to develop a therapy that could potentially totally recover a being’s native abilities, Mary is more concerned about our social attitude and professional treatment of people, especially children, who are different. She has many colleagues across the planet who are also working on this. She just wants the rest of us to understand (even if that understanding might not be totally on target). She quotes another worker, Richard Boylan:

“Some seem to think that there is an ADD or ADHD disorder in Star Kids. What I think is the case, is that Star Kids are crushingly bored by regular school and other ‘pedestrian’ information presentations and they seem distracted. Their wandering attention is a result of their boredom.”

What Mary does in this book, and promises much more of in her next book, is to tell these children’s stories in their own words. Many of them speak in near or complete disgust of what passes for education and knowledge on this planet at this time. Many also speak of being taken “elsewhere” to be more properly educated. This alternative education some of these kids are getting seems similar to Harry Potter’s Hogwarts. They don’t only get advanced technical and scientific data, but also hone their paranormal abilities, especially those involving operating exterior.

THETA CLEAR: A being who is reasonably stable outside the body and does not come back into the body simply because the body is hurt.
(Scientology 8-8008, p207, 1952)

LRH discovered and wrote about all the abilities of beings that Mary and her co-workers are just now recognizing in these people she calls the New Humans.

The New Age thinks these people are “new.” But Hubbard knew they were only new for this time period on Earth. In actuality they are quite old. But they screwed up a bit too much somewhere along the way and have ended up here. Well, Hubbard has developed a whole process for “unscrewing” ourselves. Meanwhile, Mary and her gang, blissfully ignorant of Hubbard’s ground-breaking work, expect these New Humans to help us get up to their level. Maybe a few of them will run across Scientology. Those ones will know what to do and what they are really up against.

Tracey Taylor, one of these New Humans, is quoted by Mary:
Star children are born with greater wisdom and awareness, and are also gifted creatively. They have a great feeling of being connected to nature and all that exists. They are the bringers of the new, the bringers of light, they are here to guide the awakening of terrestrial consciousness.

May it be so!

A Tale of Two Stories

18 August 2016

Battlefield Earth

This story was written in 1980 by L. Ron Hubbard. In it, the hero, a very smart Earth human, learns the secrets of teleportation after using it to destroy the planet on which it was invented, which had gone psychopathic.
When ETs threaten to take Earth and its people for their own uses, the hero successfully holds them off by teleporting a bomb to one of their moons and blowing it up, then threatening to do the same to any planet that seeks to dominate the universe through war.

Sands of Time III

This story was written in 2016 by Sean David Morton. In it, the hero, a very smart Earth human, learns the secrets of teleportation with the help of his extremely bright wife and grown-up children.
When ETs threaten to make “an example” of Earth for treaty violations, the hero successfully holds them off by teleporting himself to the bridge of their Commanding Officer’s battleship, killing his Technical Officer before he can relay the order to strike, and warning the Commander that such interventions will become routine should he and his flotilla ever show up in our solar system again.

Fact or Fiction?

Hubbard stressed in his introduction to Battlefield Earth that it was “pure Science Fiction.” However, Hubbard had by that time extensively studied the past history of life in this universe and filled his story with all sorts of hints at that truth.

Sean, on the other hand, maintains that his story is based on “journals” kept by a recent past leader of The Group (Earth’s secret space program) and that only the names and dialogue are fictional.

There is a persistent story in “alternative reality” circles that my church was infiltrated and suborned by persons directed from a U.S. government intelligence agency because of their need for a workable spirit-based technology to use for their own purposes.

Seeing as how the greater part of the technology is freely available in written form, it seems odd to me that this level of intervention would be necessary. Yet it is also clear that people in those circles have been interested in, and studied, Scientology.

As I have no personal knowledge of all the behind-the-scenes shenanigans, I cannot comment further on these “findings.” the Intelligence agencies have become masters of creating fiction. But it always helps in maintaining a fiction if as little as possible is knowable about the fictitious events. This is not true of most of the history of Hubbard and Scientology. It is true of the leader of “The Group.” So, where is there more room for fiction? I say, in the “facts” fictionalized from the “journals” left to Sean David Morton.

This presents us with the possibility that Sean’s “journals” are to a greater or lesser extent actually fictional, “leaked” to the public by a group that wants to build a case for its continued existence and activities.

The Living Physics Model

Both stories present their own versions of what could be called a “model” for all that is knowable.

Morton’s model is based on the New Age / Quantum Physics synthesis so popular in the “alternative reality” community today, and supposedly used by ET civilizations as well as our own secret space program. It is based loosely on the Eastern “chakra” system, combined with the idea that “anything that has ever happened or ever will happen is all actually happening at the same time,” thus making “time travel” possible. Morton holds out for a probabilistic future, while others insist that it all depends on which “timeline” you choose.

In Hubbard’s model there are only two main components: Cause and Effect. Cause is defined as non-physical and Effects are always physical to some degree. A causative being creates effects. A being could never create another being, and an effect, even a light one like a thought or memory, can never create anything.

Time is a concept we use to describe the “automated” process of continuous creation, which keeps something “existing” after it has been initially created. If an item were not created with a postulate that it would endure, it wouldn’t continue to exist beyond the point where it’s creator discontinued creating it.

The only “real time” is NOW. The past exists only as energy deposits in present time containing recordings of earlier events or states of existence. The future only exists as an agreement that matter will persist and events will follow certain patterns. Some of these patterns are so strongly agreed to that they can be codified into “Laws of Physics.” However, the idea that time exists as a “dimension” in Physics, on an equal footing with the dimensions of space, is only an illusion; a convenience for predicting phenomena governed by strong agreements such as the Physical Laws.

Per Hubbard, time travel per se is not possible. Both records of the past and expectations about the future are held in place by strong agreements among the various members of the group “Cause.” To alter records of the past or expectations of the future is simply a process of disagreeing with those strong agreements. Most in the group would consider this bad manners, if not criminal! The future should be fair game. However, not everyone is OK with that.

Teleportation

The ability to move objects around as if they were merely ideas could therefore be considered to be a focused, limited, but very strong intention to disagree with the rest of Creation.

In both books this process requires huge machines that use massive amounts of energy. This may or may not be actually possible. But I know that this ability is well within the grasp of any portion of Cause that is willing to disagree and to take responsibility for its decisions. While it would seem to spoil the agreed-upon game, it is Hubbard’s argument that life in bodies is not all it’s cracked up to be, and a longer leash – if not a total separation – might be good for all of us.

This ability, then, regardless of exactly how it is implemented, is a key survival ability. Both Morton and Hubbard present to us scenarios illustrating how unsettling it can be to attain and use this ability. They both stress that the attainment of it should not be for the purpose of using it, but rather for the purpose of knowing you could if you absolutely had to.

Greer-Goode-Wilcock-Tompkins-Hubbard

28 July 2016

I ordered and received a package of DVDs and books from Dr. Greer’s organization a little bit ago, and watched most of his more recent lectures over the past few days.

These were basically a series of briefings about the politics of the ET situation, the extent of the secret space program, and the suppression of disruptive technologies that could greatly improve human conditions on Earth.

The politics of the situation center around a group of people who were able to gain access to ET technologies and used them for purposes of conquest and threatening more honest and peace-loving people to allow their work to continue (under duress). This is how criminals work.

Of all the researchers in this area, Greer probably has the most reality on how criminal the high-level people in this program are. His research, however, does not include the connection with ex-Nazi Germans.

Goode-Wilcock-Tompkins

David Wilcock also has started a new set of shows with Corey Goode that feature the information that William Tompkins has been releasing in his book and subsequent interviews. In the shows Corey comments on how Tompkins’ data align or differ from his own training and information.

Goode, Wilcock and Tompkins all believe that the secret space programs started with some occult German groups who wanted to achieve some sort of technological advantage for their own purposes. They got talked into taking over Germany and starting a war, but decided to bow out of that war by “losing” it and moved their operation to South America and Antarctica. This allowed them to keep their technologies secret and later infiltrate the US corporate and military groups that might be sympathetic to their plans. These connections apparently eventually resulted in what some call a “breakaway civilization.” This group runs mining operations and manufacturing plants on other planets and trades with various ET societies. A sub-group also helps the dominant aggressive ET group in its missions outside this solar system which are presumably military missions.

Greer doesn’t mention this data, and may not, in fact, have been told any of it. Though he reads some books on the subject, he says he does not use the internet to do any research; all his most important data is from his sources, who are mostly government-related, along with a few corporate people and near-royals like Lawrence Rockefeller and Prince Hans-Adam of Liechtenstein.

Other Dimensions

Most of these New Age guys are into “dimensions” or “densities.” I’m not sure where they got this idea about the “new physics” except that the mathematics of physics uses them. In physics, the “dimension” of Time measures the duration of phenomena or changes of position.

Lots of people are into “parallel time lines,” time travel and other such phenomena. There is also the whole subject of medical restoration expressed as a system for time-regressing a body.

Through all of this I have also been listening to Hubbard’s Philadelphia Doctorate Course (PDC). He touches on these esoteric questions, though in the end, he is trying to train auditors how to audit. However, in this process he presents the simplest view of the situation in this universe that I know of: 1) non-physical points of creation exist; 2) they create effects like matter, energy, space, time and perhaps many others; 3) all creation takes place in present time.

Thus, for me, this talk of “dimensions” and “timelines” along with Meditation and similar “paths to higher consciousness” are all window-dressing for the full range of possible phenomena that can be created and experienced by the non-physical entities which we are. All the action happens in the physical in present time, as far as I’m concerned. All the perception and creation of that action resides with the causative entities which are totally non-physical. Calling biology “life” is a misnomer in my universe. Biology is a creation of life which life is intimately connected to, but it is not life. If it were, biological entities would never die, but they do all the time. Though we can play at being causative through our bodies, what a being can do trapped in a body bears only the faintest resemblance to what one can do freed and fully self-aware.

Who are the ETs and what do they want?

Greer is adamant that if there were “bad” ETs they would have taken this planet for themselves long ago. This reveals his naiveté in these matters. There are plenty of powerful bad guys on Earth. Why haven’t they long ago completely taken over the place and turned it into their dark playground? The answer is that they are in a minority and that the worst of them are so afraid that it is difficult for them do anything effective. For this they depend on higher-toned minions who are less self-destructive and thus more courageous. By a sort of pyramid system of threats of violence they manage to keep a lot of people “in their place” but at the expense of never totally getting their ideal future, always having to compromise with the somewhat saner people they force to cooperate with them. Thus life, in its basic urge to keep the game going, provides a restraining force to the destructive “dark side.”

The “bad” ETs are restrained in their actions by other groups that wish to have Earth surviving more or less as it is now, so as to provide them with a new trading partner, a travel destination, a research area, or something else like that.

Though the “pro Earth” ETs may not want much more from Earth than the various business interests here on Earth want from their customers (sales, so they can show a profit), in public they tend to get over-elaborate in their statements of purpose. This a company promoting “Come alive!” in the 1960s was selling flavored sugar water (Pepsi). And another promoting “the power to be your best” made electronic computing machines (Apple).

I don’t know what most ETs really want, but it would be wise to look past their advertising to their actual products. So far the technology they have “given” us has served our military and criminal sectors very well and the rest of us very poorly. If this is the best they have to offer, I am not that impressed. I know LRH would agree with me.

Yes, their technologies would give us a temporary boost if released for broad public use. But the big question for us – as well as them I do believe – is, can we manage to reverse our own spiritual downward spirals? Can we learn to re-separate ourselves from our material creations, at least when we need to? If this planet were taken from us for some reason, could we recreate our lives on another one? If we are serious about ever ending our slavery to the criminal elements of this universe, those are the questions we must learn to answer.

The Moon landing

By way of a sort of illustration of this dilemma, I offer the example of our 1960s Apollo Program. I believe all the researchers mentioned in my title, bar LRH because I’ve never heard him comment on this, are in basic agreement on what happened during the first Moon landing.

Greer specifically laid this out for us in one of his briefings, and Tompkins has also mentioned it. Our astronauts were not alone when we got to the Moon in 1969. There were several ET ships above them – very close – watching their every move. These ships were videoed. That video has been seen by someone Greer knows. A substitute video of that event was made in advance, as we were expecting those observers. So what we saw on TV that day did not all happen up on the Moon.

We don’t even “own” our own Moon! We have been allowed to develop bases on the Moon and various other places as a secret program under close ET watch. They want to make sure we don’t turn the technologies they gave us against them! And it will continue to be that way until they can trust us, or until they have no alternative but to trust us (that we could turn the tables on them is a rather distant possibility). And so, yet another piece of our cherished history must be re-written before it is reasonably accurate. And so it goes.

June 2016 review of recent news and interviews

12 June 2016

Note: Since Jean has stopped maintaining her site, and most related sites are overly commercial, I plan to write more on this site. I am not actively promoting my blog, and I don’t intend to. But I have things to say, and if there is a public place to say those things, I will use it.

Let’s start with something I stumbled across fairly recently. I might mention here that most information sources on the internet do not bother to cross-reference their material with other sources. Thus, if I don’t keep up with Rense (as an example – his website is filled with trash) then I could quite possibly miss an event of interest to me because while he is reporting on it, no one else is referring to those reports.

The only place this breaks down is on sites like YouTube which lists videos in the sidebar that are related to the one you are viewing. This is as close as most of the internet gets to information integration. I think many “powerful” people are afraid that if we started integrating the information put out by various different sources that we might begin to get a clue of what’s really going on.

An example of such a recent release was a book entitled “Selected by ETs” by William Mills Tompkins, released in December of 2015. He subsequently gave several interviews, mostly with Jeff Rense. Rense released a short video and many photos said to be of German spacecraft.

Michael Salla (Exopolitics) also talked with Tompkins.

Though this has all the signs of a controlled information release, that may be about the only type of release most of us are going to see (this includes most “whistle blower” releases) except for maybe Hubbard’s work and a few others.

Tompkins gives almost the exact same story that Corey Goode is telling us (minus the most recent events) about the development of the secret space program. The story, basically, is that now that we have developed machine technologies and electronics to the level of working robots, we are seen as useful to the various ET “Space Opera” societies for many reasons. Some want to use us as slaves, while others simply want us as trading partners or want to attempt to reform us so we don’t venture out into space with weapons of mass destruction. So various ET groups have contacted various Earth groups with various offers of “help.” One result of one such offer was the secret space program, started by the Nazis in the early 1900s. Tompkins was privy to information collected by US spies in Germany before and during World War 2.

Steven Greer announces new film and push for full disclosure 14 April 2016.

This is another recent event that gives us the New Age view of disclosure, which would include the possibility of a spiritual and cultural renaissance on Earth. This would be possible because one of the technologies being kept secret is “free energy” which, if fully disclosed, could end the rampant use of fossil fuels on the planet.

Greer believes that the only important ETs out there are the ones who want to bring us spiritual enlightenment and a better social life. He dismisses reports of “bad” ETs as a product of the human groups who want to keep ET contact a secret. This does not entirely fit with the secret space program story.

In early May Jean Haines reported that an interview of financial advisor Jim Willie by Rick Wiles on 29 April 2016 had been banned by YouTube. I have previously mentioned this interview. Rick is a Christian who believes in End Times. Jim no longer lives in the US, having moved to someplace in South America. He told Rick that the “White Dragon Society” offered the West an ultimatum regarding the use of the US dollar in international trade. He also believes that the Russian church leader warned the European church leader (the Pope) that immoral practices at the highest levels will not be tolerated for very much longer.

On 29 May 2016 David Wilcock updated his blog with an article entitled “Full Disclosure and Ascension: The War Has Gone Hot!”

According to “high-level intel” Draco ships were attacked over Antarctica. David believes that various groups are afraid of an “ascension event” predicted by the Law of One group in the 1980s. To limit its impact on their power structure, they want to implement a “partial disclosure” scenario in which the public are brought up to speed over the course of 2 or three generations, rather than all at once.

This is what Corey Goode has been reporting to David in his ongoing interviews, delayed-broadcast once every week. The group that wants partial disclosure seems to have the upper hand at this point. Apparently they fear public reprisals if everyone were to suddenly learn everything.

Abby Martin interviews Mark Crispin Miller 4 June 2016.

I believe I found this interview via the Veterans Today website. As far as I can tell, Abby is not a New Ager. She’s basically out to just expose secret stuff that various power groups – which she sees as some sort of government-business alliance – are perpetrating on the planet. She sees all this as a new development made possible by new technologies. Thus her awareness of the true situation is significantly below that of the New Agers who realize that ET has been visiting earth for millions of years, and using such technologies that whole time.

Mark goes over some of the basic mechanisms and methods of “modern” (20th and 21st century) propaganda. I guess they hope their work will help the rest of us see through these control technologies. However, similar technologies have been in place, basically, forever. Our lack of ability to remember this is one result of these technologies.

Sheldan Nidle continues to post weekly “updates.”

Sheldan’s “ET” sources are almost for sure not what they are pretending to be. They give Sheldan data similar to what Wilcock and others are getting. A typical info-bite from his 7 June update says: “The election in America is expected to be delayed when a new NESARA government can be formally declared.”

Perhaps the most astonishing thing about Sheldan’s messages is their consistency. He is not liked in the alternative news community, though, because he made some predictions that never came true. I think he is more likely the target of a counter-info campaign, like Hubbard is.

Mike Harris interviews Ben Fulford 7 June 2016.

I have also mentioned Benjamin Fulford before. He is a Canadian idealist living in Japan. His father was a diplomat and Ben has a host of “inside” connections. The interesting thing about his reports is that he is in Asia and in direct contact with Asian groups (he speaks Japanese, possibly some Chinese) in particular the “White Dragon Society.” Jim Willie is probably getting most of his data about Asia from Ben Fulford.

Ben, however, has no interest in all the New Age stuff, in particular that old religious story that many of them cling to that someone from off-planet is going to come down here and help us out of this mess. I don’t believe that story, either, but I think it is quite possible that ET has contacted many humans and human groups offering “help.”

Ben’s big weakness is in his understandings about criminality. This is in fact a major weakness of most people. He sees the major motivation of criminals as greed (unearned profit). He knows that the criminal groups have smart people in them, so he figures they can be reasoned with. Hubbard’s research indicates this is simply not the case.

Real criminals (compulsive liars who are unable to work or cooperate with others due to fear) have fallen below the level of self-awareness necessary to see themselves as having a proper place in human society. They are criminals because of events that happened millions of years ago. If their parents beat them, they probably deserved it; recent history has little if any bearing on how they think and act.

The bright criminal mind (not all are that bright) is capable of significant levels of operation and deceit. They have been on a program of bringing down the level of human culture to their level for a very long time. A lot of us are here on Earth because we resented those programs. And a lot of them are also here on Earth because they took it too far.

All the managers wanted were ways to control various chronic problems. What they often got was more than they bargained for. It was often the more brilliant criminals that served as consultants to managers. Their solutions are always technology-based (mechanical) solutions. They are uniformly terrified of real spiritual powers, though many of them know these exist. One of their strategies is to pull people with psychic abilities into their programs where they can be watched and controlled – and eliminated if they get too out of hand. Corey Goode is apparently an example of this.

An old criminal strategy is to secretly create problems for managers and then turn around and offer the “solutions.” You’d think management would catch on, but so far, they have not. In a human group, the strategies and arguments of the true criminals can be quite forceful. A being may well feel that he would have to be willing to give up his life in order to oppose them. Then of course if he is killed, his work would stop, unless he was sufficiently spiritually skilled to carry on without a body.

Hubbard’s Operating Thetan, or anyone else at a similar level of spiritual ability, could take on real criminals with some success. For most of us, dealing directly with such beings is a big risk. Hubbard’s booklet “The Way to Happiness” could be seen as a set of suggestions for avoiding getting involved with real criminals. Your only other real choice if you want to rise above them is spiritual advancement. This is what “Ascension” offers (falsely I believe) and what Hubbard offers (honestly I believe).

Disclosure would be an interesting change; a turning point for Earth. But will it be a turning point in the upwards or in the downwards direction? This will depend on our ability to rise above the criminal mind and all its influences on us. We must turn away from merely technological solutions. The way ahead is in the direction of greater spiritual ability.

How to make a game piece

28 April 2016

I studied this material this morning. It is from the Philadelphia Lectures of December, 1952. The major topic of this lecture (#39, 12 December) was the Spirit of Play. This is a high level of action that we usually experience briefly and to a small extent when we are children. It is corruptible, and has been corrupted, in most societies, and even between pairs of “players.” In its corrupted form, games are played by “players” (spiritual beings) with the help of “assistant players” and use “pieces” (like in board [bored?] games) which are other spiritual beings which the “players” are convinced are unworthy. Below the level of the “piece” is the “broken piece.”

From the lecture and lecture notes, not quite verbatim:

How to make a piece:

  • Deny there is a game.
  • Hide the rules.
  • Give all penalties, no wins.
  • Remove all goals (other than being a piece).
  • Enforce participation.
  • Inhibit enjoyment.
  • Make them look like players, but don’t allow them to be players.
  • Permit them to associate only with other pieces.
  • Deny the existence of players.

Have you read Mission Earth?

12 February 2016

Mission Earth is a story written by LRH in 1985, and subsequently published in ten books, spaced out so audiences had time to finish each one before the next one went on sale.

I owned a full set at one time, but only read the first 5 volumes. More recently I purchased the audio books version and finished the story that way. Here is a rather off-the-cuff sum-up of what I took away from reading these books.

A time of unrest in the alternative realities community

The alternative realities community is in a state of considerable upset over predictions scheduled for this year as well as actual events that are occurring, such as the murder of LaVoy Finnicum by the FBI in Oregon, blaming mutant babies on a virus instead of vaccinations all the mothers received, presidential campaigning in the United States, and extreme violence abroad.

Predictions include anything from another – and more severe – financial crisis up to and including the total destruction of Earth as we know it.

Hubbard addresses all these issues in Mission Earth.

My personal opinion is that LRH wrote Mission Earth for the Sea Org and didn’t particularly care if anyone else read it. Sea Org members would understand it. However, the Sea Org wanted to get it on the charts, and marketed it with enthusiasm, as they do with all LRH titles.

I have no idea how many people have actually read it. On the internet, almost everyone pretends that they’ve never read anything by LRH, or if they did, didn’t understand it. And it goes without saying that ordinary book reviewers are not going to credit LRH with being a researcher who possibly had something of value to bring to the table, via this story.

Viewpoints

The first 8 volumes of the story are narrated by the hero’s chief antagonist, a spy from another planet. First viewpoint.
It is presented as a transcription of his “confession,” written after he was imprisoned for his misdeeds. A robotic translator is used in this process, and it makes comments about the illogical nature of the story at the beginning of each book. Second viewpoint.
The spy has secretly installed implants in the hero and the heroine, giving him direct access to their conversations and experiences. Thus we also get the hero’s viewpoint in this story.
The last two volumes are ostensibly penned by an “investigative reporter” from the same planet as the other main characters. He starts out sympathetic with the hero, but gradually gets corrupted by his baser instincts and ends up something close to a raving lunatic. This character gives us the ending of the story, after they have all left Earth and returned to their own planet.

The hero’s viewpoint is very ethical. It is despised by the narrator, a criminal, and that gives us our satire. Though the subject of the books seems to be Earth, it is more correctly the human predicament, which the other planet suffers from as much as Earth does, even though that planet has a continuous written and legal history that goes back tens of thousands of years, and technology very advanced compared to that on Earth.

Hubbard’s hero speaks for Hubbard in terms of ethical and practical answers to a variety of thorny human dilemmas. He briefly explains all sorts of advanced technologies that for all I know are perfectly workable.

The criminal narrator cheers for the unethical side of human thought and experience. He is quite willing to be involved in the most unseemly behavior, particularly involving sexuality, but also murder, and adores the subjects of public relations, psychology and psychiatry, which Hubbard considers three of the most debased subjects on our planet.

Technologies

Here is a short list of technologies mentioned by Hubbard in this story. It is my definite impression that he is telling us that these technologies are quite real and have been used by more advanced civilizations for thousands of years:

  1. Superluminal travel. This is exemplified by a technology he calls the “will-be-was engine.”
  2. Safe biological handlings for pollution. The hero runs a “spore project” to rid Earth of excess pollutants.
  3. Time bending. The hero has a camera-like device which can be dialed up to several hours into the future that he uses to win at roulette in a casino. The royal city on the home planet is also protected by a 13 minute time warp.
  4. Anti-gravity drives, which are quite the ordinary thing on the home planet.
  5. Harnessing of microscopic “proto black holes” as long-term energy sources. The hero does one for earth, and Royal City on the home planet also runs on one.
  6. All sorts of energy-based weapons, of course. Though the criminal’s favorite gun shoots needles.
  7. Mind control via hypnosis. The heroine is expert at this and uses technology called a “hypno-helmet.” The hypnotic effect is well-known on earth, though seldom discussed in “polite” company.

Social dynamics

Hubbard depicts all his characters as fallible. Even the robo-brain in the translatophone. Thus, human societies, to survive, must somehow take this into account.

Both societies suffer from two propensities in particular: drugs and sex. What the hero tries to do with these subjects is to decommercialize them as much as possible so there is no profit in promoting them. This strategy seems to include a minimum of legal prohibitions.

All societies have problems with criminality, and this is really the central theme of this story. Many people, including me, found these books hard to read because criminality is so in your face in this story. The intent, of course, is to get us to face it. A society that cannot face a criminal and deal sternly with one will be overcome by them. This is one of the primary lessons taught by Scientology Ethics and one of the most hardest fought (by the criminals, of course). Criminality has been SO TOLERATED on this planet for so long! Hubbard really makes fun of this fact and its various ramifications. New York City is run by the mob, which does the dirty work for the secret ruler of the planet, Rockefeller (dubbed “Rockecenter” in the story). Everyone has to do what this guy says or else. The mobs, however, have better ethics than the Rockecenters! Some other criminal rackets Hubbard deals with in this story include:

  • Credit card companies and banks.
  • PR as it is commonly practiced on earth.
  • Psychology and psychiatry as they are practiced on earth.
  • The program to make homosexuality popular, as a population control strategy.
  • Rampant spying by the government on private citizens.

Hubbard’s interim answer to social ills is to face and handle the criminal very sternly. This should be the focus of law and the primary duty of the central government. We are talking about real criminals, not all the people who make mistakes. The real ones do it with a passion. The others feel upset about their misdeeds.

On Earth the criminal “Rockecenter” is forced to sign over all his operations to honest people. Then when he attempts a predictable double-cross, he gets blown up, and all the signed papers recovered.

On the home planet, the criminals get exiled to barren regions with “lots of space.” This is Hubbard’s preferred method for handling psychopaths. They cannot be rehabilitated and in any case are not seen as worth the effort. Perhaps the next lifetime will be a better one. On the home planet people live for 200 years or more, so imprisonment of criminals (but in a big open area) until death can give a society a nice long breather.

Earth versus ET

LRH was not happy about what he learned about “advanced” ET civilizations during the course of his researches. And he portrays them with only slightly less asperity than he portrays Earth.

In this story, the hero’s home planet is planning to invade earth and take it over about 150 years in the future. However, surveys have indicated that the planet may not survive that long. The hero is given a royal order to go “fix up” Earth so it will survive longer. The covert operations office (Coordinated Information Apparatus – CIA) is put in charge of all the logistics for this mission, but has gone corrupt, and is using Earth to grow drugs that it imports to the home planet to use in undermining the power of the royal Lords. So the operative assigned to the mission is given a secret order to prevent the hero from being successful.

The alternative realities community is struggling with similar crossed messages about the intentions of ET. Steven Greer thinks ET is our salvation, and all the evil on Earth comes from Earth. However, since none of the people on Earth come from Earth (according to Hubbard’s research), that argument doesn’t wash with me, nor with many others who have experienced ET first hand.

His last word as an author

Though other LRH stories have been published since Mission Earth, I believe it is the last story he wrote before he left, and thus his “parting shot.” Though some have been offended by the book, I think LRH was very justified in writing it. Ever since he took up the serious subjects of Dianetics and Scientology he has been badgered and reviled in “popular” media, yet anyone who has studied these subjects knows how hard he worked on them and understands what a gift they are to Earth. The general public – but particularly those who hope to mold public opinion – deserve the dark satire communicated in this story. They prefer to remain ignorant, and “fiddle” while Rome burns.

The Management Series

15 September 2013
The Management Series

The Management Series, 2001 edition, Volumes 1 and 2 to the left, Volume 3 open to an article in the Marketing Series.

This is another set of books published by Bridge Publications compiling LRH articles (“Policy Letters”) on the subject of operating an organization.

In these volumes are the “Series.” These are policy letters Ron wrote specifically to go together. They cover various topics pertinent to the operation of any organization or business.

Here is a list of the Series provided in these volumes:

Volume One:

Administration Know-How Series

  • General advice for executives and managers.

Target Series

  • How to write programs to accomplish things that will actually get done.

Computer Series
Executive Series
Data Series

  • How to evaluate situations and get the right why (correct thing to handle).

Volume Two:
Personnel Series
Organizing Series
Establishment Officer Series

  • How to get someone onto post and productive – rapidly.

Volume Three:
Public Relations Series
Marketing Series
Art Series

  • With an emphasis on art as it applies to advertizing.

Finance Series

These volumes include data on LRH management innovations such as:

  • Hatting
  • The Establishment Officer, and ESTO technology
  • Product-Organizing-Establishment Officer system
  • The organizing board – designing a human system to accomplish something
  • Posting an organization from the top down
  • The use of Word Clearing and Ethics Conditions in organizations

It is well worth anybody’s time to get more familiar with these subjects. And we have write-ups from a man with a lot of experience and excellent writing skills. I have enjoyed reading and applying LRH Policy Letters, and I think you would too.

Basic Staff Hat – OEC Volume 0

2 June 2013

The Organization Executive Course (OEC) was put together by LRH in 1969 as a way to train church executives in what he saw as the most successful ways to manage and expand the church.

Later (1971), a “Basic Staff Hat” was put together with the most basic articles (called Hubbard Communication Office (HCO) Policy Letters (HCOPLs) about organizations and being on staff in one book that anyone should be familiar with. I studied this entire volume in the year 2000.

It seems odd to me, now, that not every organization (such as my current employer) makes such a book (and course to go with it) available to all its staff. How else can you get management and workers “on the same page?”

This book gives us (in Scientology) a common language of management and the theory behind it, so that we can all communicate effectively with each other on questions of how the organizations are run.

There is a lot to running an organization successfully!

Here are the major topics covered by this 942-page volume:

  1. Introduction, Keeping Scientology Working and Keeping Admin Working; Scientology organizations and their purpose
  2. Basic organization and the organizing board
  3. Basic staff actions and duties
  4. Staff appearance and org image
  5. Communication
  6. Developed traffic (Dev-T: useless, unnecessary or destructive actions in an organization)
  7. Hats and Hatting (Hat: A collection of materials that outline the purposes, know-how and duties of a post.)
  8. Products and exchange
  9. Statistics
  10. Ethics, honesty and survival
  11. The conditions of existence from Non-Existence to Power
  12. Conditions below Non-Existence
  13. Condition Formulas application and remedies
  14. Basic principles of promotion
  15. Servicing the public
  16. Orders and compliance
  17. Staff performance, rules and regulations
  18. Organizational  ethics
  19. Staff member reports
  20. Use of conditions in organizations
  21. Administering justice
  22. Scientology Justice Codes
  23. Org programming and target attainment
  24. The Ideal Org
  25. Appendices include:
    • Thirteen different versions of organizing boards
    • List of types of issues and magazines

Any one of these topics could fill a book!

Yet these articles, all written by a professional writer, are very readable and outline for anyone who cares to study them the basics of running any activity anywhere to do anything; and of being a member of that activity. Some of them are church-specific, while most have very broad application.

Of all the things that working in the church gave me, these PLs are among the most missed. To have such a body of guidelines, all written down and organized, for all participants in the activity to learn, use and discuss, is a priceless gift.

OEC Vol 0

Organization Executive Course Volume 0, 1999 edition

This book was produced by Bridge Publications in 1999 and is a very nice piece of work. It is printed on high-grade paper, includes three ribbons for use as place markers and two thumb tabs for the Appendices and Index.
