Date: May 3, 1993 Time: 10:00 a.m. Place: Courtroom 7 Discovery Cut-off: July 7, 1993 Pretrial Conf.: August 6, 1993, 1:30 p.m. Trial Date: Sept., 1993 1 DECLARATION OF STEVEN FISHMAN I, Steven Fishamn, declare as follows: 1. I have personal knowledge of the facts stated herein, unless stated on information and belief, and if called upon to testify to those facts I could and would competently do so. 2. I am a Defendant in the case of Church of Scientology v. Steven Fishman and Uwe W. Geertz. I am currently serving a five year sentence for mail fraud and I am under the direct custody of the Bureau of Prisons. I am currently housed in Dismas House, a "half-way haouse" run by the Bureau of Prisons, and under the direct supervision of the Community Corrections Manager of the Southern District of Florida. My release date from incarceratyion is June 28, 1993. 3. I am prohibited from leaving the Southern District of Florida during my incarceration. After my period of incarceration, I will be under the supervision of the United States Parole Commission, from June 29, 1993 until November 28, 1993, and I am prohibited from leaving the Southern District of Florida. After my period of Parole, I will be under the supervision of the United -3- (0017) States Probation Office, from November 29, 1993 until November 28, 1995, and I am prohibited from leaving the Southern District of Florida, without permission of the United States Probation Office or as ordered by the Court. 4. Due to the period of incarceration, parole and supervised release, it is very difficult if not impossible for me to conduct discovery and/or prepare for trial which is tentatively scheduled to occur in the summer of 1993. The trial is scheduled to take place in the Central istrict of California. 5. This very Court in this very action declared me indigent -pursuant to a Motion to Proceed in Forma Pauperis signed by the honorable Judge Harry L. Hupp on May 28, 1992. 6. My financial condition is still indigent. I am employed as a receptionist and data entry clerk at the wage of $ 5.00 per hour. My gross pay is $ 200.00 per week, as I work a forty hour week. My net pay after deductions is $ 164.00 per week. Out of that check I pay $ 50.00 In subsistence payments to the Dismas House, and I make child support payments of $ 41.00 per week to my ex-wife, Jaime Lee Nureyev, in order to help support my two minor children. I further make a monthly non-committed fine payment of $ 25.00 to the Debt Collection Unit of the 4 (0018) Northern District of California and I contribute $ 20.00 per week to the support of My father, Jack Fishman, who is also destitute and has been adjudicated bankrupt by the Southern District of Florida, and is living only on his social security chock. I wish the Court to know that I am indigent and destitute and besides not being able to afford the cost of bringing witnesses to testify at trial in the Central District of Cdlifornia I cannot afford even a plane ticket or money for a hotel room to come out there for the trial myself. 7. I cannot afford nor have I been able to afford to conduct discovery in this case, nor to issue subpoenas, hire court reporters etc., in the Central District of California, a jurisdiction which is convenient for the Plaintiff but not for myself as a Defendant in this case. 8. Although my ability to conduct discovery in either jurisdiction is impossible due to my financial circumstances I ask the Court to recognize my right to attend My own trial as the Defendant, which would be impossible in California unless my traveling and hotel expenses were paid for by the Plaintiff or my co-Defendant, and I do not wish to be a burden upon either of them. If the case were transferred to the Southern District of Florida under 28 U.S.C. 1404(m), I would be able to attend my trial as the Defendant in this case since no travel or 5 (0019) hotel expenses are involved. 90 1 do not expect my financial situation to change in the foreseeable future. I also still personally owe in excess of $ 10,000 in credit card debt, some of which I used to purchase books and tapes from bridge Publications Inc., the publishing house of the Church of Scientology, while I was still brainwashed and under the mind control of the Scientology cult. 10. I have been ordered by Counselor Roxana Boyco and Director Tammy Jodway of Dismas House, as well as Mr. Conrad Lopez of the Bureau of Prisons to begin My required Mental Health Aftercare at the Henderson Clinic South, a psychiatric out-patient treatment center in Hollywood, Florida. My treatment begins on March 9, 1993, and may require psychotropic medication, according to Ruth Watkins at the clinic. I may not be reemitted by my treating psychiatrist to discontinue treatment during the period of time required for my trial appearance in California, even if the Court were to order the Bureau of Prisons to allow me to appear in California, and even if any expenses were to be Paid for by either the Plaintiff or Defendant Geertz, which is not likely-or customary. I will need to call Margery Wakefield as a witness. Margery Wakefield is a Florida resident. As an 6 (0020) ex-member of Scientology, and As a victim of abuse while a member of the cult, she will be called upon to testify as -to the illegal and criminal practices Of the Church of scientology, as well as information regarding the church's -policies on suicides, murder and the Church policy known as "changing history". I cannot afford to bring Margery Wakefield as a witness to California. Margery wakefield told me that she is also indigent and destitute but has Indicated that she would appear as a witness if the case ,were brought to trial in the Southern District of Florida. She is a key witness in my defense. 12. Dr. Ron Johnson is a doctor of veterinary medicine and a resident of Fort Lauderdale, Florida. I wish to be able to call him to trial in order to testify regarding my membership in the Church of Scientology in the year 1981, a fact strongly disputed by the Church in their attempt to cover up their involvement in the crimes for which I am charged in the criminal case. I cannot afford to bring this witness to California in order to testify. 13. Dr. Ron Neuhring is a psychologist from Miami, Florida. He was my Fishman's treating psychologist when I was first arrested at the Metropolitan Correctional Center, a Federal prison facility. Dr. Neuhring will be called to testify regarding my mental state at the time of my arrest, as well as statements which I made to him regarding my 7 (0021) involvement with the Church of Scientology. I cannot afford to bring this witness to California in order to testify. 14. Special Agent Angelo Troncoso of the Internal Revenue Service 'is a resident of the Tampa, Florida area. I will call him to testify to his knowledge of the criminal investigation being conducted by the internal Revenue Service into the Church of Scientology, and to the extent of knowledge and details supplied to him by myself, establishing to the Court his understanding of my familiarity with upper-level Church management decisions and business. I cannot afford to bring this witness to California in order to testify. 15. Special Agent Terry R. Kroggel is a Certified public Accountant with the Internal Revenue Service and a resident of the St. Petersburg, Florida area. I will call him to testify to my knowledge of the civil investigation being conducted by the Internal Revenue Service into the Church of Scientology, and to the extent of familiarity with details supplied to him by myself, establishing my the his understanding of my knowledge of upper-level Church management decisions and business. I cannot afford to bring this witness to California in order to testify. 16. Detective Dennis Angelo is an investigator with 8 (0022) the Clearwater Police Department, and is a resident of the Clearwater, Florida area. I will call him to testify to his Knowledge of the civil investigation being conducted by the Clearwater Police Department into the Church of Scientology, and to the extent of familiarity with details supplied to him by myself, establishing my knowledge of upper-level Church management decisions and business. I cannot afford to bring this witness to California in order to testify. 17. Dr. Enyin Aksu is a psychiatrist who is a resident of Broward County Florida. Dr. Aksu was my treating physician at the time when I was, an in-patient at the Hollywood pavilion psychiatric facility in Hollywood, Florida, from February 13, 1989 until march 20, 1989. Dr. Aksu will be called to testify regarding my mental state at the time of my involuntary commitment in the mental hospital, as well as statements made to him by myself Fishman regarding my involvement with this Church of Scientology. I cannot afford to bring this witness to California in order to testify. 18. I will also need to call certain hostile witnesses who are staff members of the Church of Scientology, including but not limited to Mr. Frank Thompson, Mr. Ray Jourdain, Mr. Humberto Fontana, Ms. Beverly Flahan, Mr. Luis Gonzales, Mr. Charles Fox, Mr. 9 (0023) Mark Witt, Mr. Michael Hambrick, Mr. Peter Letterese, Mrs. Barbara Fawcett Letterese, Ms. Denise Franklin Monco Mancha Ms. Fran Hardy Andrews, Ms. Barbara Koster, Ms,. Leona Littler Grimm, Ms. Celia Alvarez, Mr. Tom Staley, Ma. Karen Staley, Ms, Shirley Hambrick, Ms. Leah Abady, Ms. Colette Atzel, Mr. Jamie Gurlaccio, Mr. Bob Levy, Mr. Doug Carr, Mr. Roberto Naya, Ms. Nancy Witkowski, Mr. Paul Dibble, Ms. Linda Miller, Ms. Vicki Kirkland, Mr. Roggie Monce, and others who are residents of either Dade or Broward County, Florida. These witnesses will be called upon to testify regarding the physical abuse and hypnosis performed upon myself, AS well as Church policies regarding these practices. Some will be asked to testify regarding the Church policy regarding suicide and murder, as well as specific orders directing me to assassinate Dr. Geertz and to have me Defendant commit suicide under the auspices of an "End of Cycle" order. others will be asked to testify regarding the Church's involvement and direction in ordering me to commit securities class action fraud in a Church operation known an Operation Acting Classes, for which I was arrested and plead guilty in an Alford Plea (of Innocent but responsible for the acts alleged), and other criminal acts which I was directed to commit on behalf of the cult, including the Ethics Bait Project and Bingoing. I cannot afford to bring any of these or other similarly situated witnesses to California for the trial, as they are nearly all residents of the Southern District of Florida, 10 (0024) with the exception of Denise Franklin Monce Macha, who may be residing in Clearwater, Florida to the best of my recollection. 19. I will also need to call Mrs. Dorli Geertz to testify Regarding psychological tests which she administered on me over the Years between 1979-1990 which will establish my deteriorating state of mind during the time I was a devotee to and member of the Scientology cult. I cannot afford to bring this witness to California in order to testify. 20. Dr. Daniel M. Lipshutz. M.D. is a resident of Singer Island, Florida, and is my uncle. He is a retired psychiatrist formerly licensed to practice psychiatry in New York. He has been familiar with my psychiatric history during my entire lifetime arid will be called to testify about how the Scientology cult had adversely affected my thinking, belief system and my mental condition. I cannot afford to bring this witness to California in order to testify. 21. Mr. Samuel J. Kern, is a resident of Plantation, Florida, and is also my uncle. He is a retired trial attorney from Brooklyn New York, and although cannot represent me an counsel in this case because he is not admitted to the bar in Florida, he will assist me and act 11 (0025) as my personal representative if the trial were conducted in Florida. I cannot afford to bring my uncle to California in order for him to assist me in the preparation of my defense as my personal representative. 22. Consequently, and in the interest of justice, I plead with the Court to transfer the venue to the Southern District of Florida pursuant to 29 U.S.C. 1404(a). I declare under penalty of perjury under the laws of the State of Florida that the above is true and correct to the best of my recollection and understanding.

You can write that down in your book in great big letters. The only way you can control anybody is to lie to them. When you find an individual is lying to you, you know that the individual is trying to control you. One way or another this individual is trying to control you. That is the mechanism of control. This individual is lying to you because he is trying to control you - because if they give you enough misinformation they will pull you down the tone scale so that they can control you. Conversely, if you see an impulse on the part of a human being to control you, you know very well that that human being is lying to you. Not "is going to", but "is" lying to you. [last sentence is underlined in original] Check these facts, you will find they are always true. That person who is trying to control you is lying to you. He's got to tell you lies in order to continue control, because the second you start telling anybody close to the truth, you start releasing him and he gets tougher and tougher to control. So, you cant control somebody without telling them a bunch of lies. You will find that very often Command has this as its greatest weakness. It will try to control instead of leading. The next thing you know, it is lying to the [illegible]. Lie, lie, lie, and it gets worse and worse, and all of a sudden the thing blows up. Well, religion has done this. [Following sentence is underlined] Organised religion tries to control, so therefore must be lying. [end underline] After a while it figures out (even itself) that it is lying, and then it starts down tone scale further and further, and all of a sudden people get down along this spring-like bottom (heresy) and say, "Are we going into apathy and die, or are we going to revolt?" and they revolt, because you can only lie to people so long. Unfortunately there is always a new cycle of lying. L. Ron Hubbard Technique 88 (0029) Letter of Authenticiyy Exhibit C (no number just title page exhibit C) 26 January 1982 WITNESS PREPARATION:HATTING THE WITNESS Preparation of an individual witness to give evidence for us at trial can be broken into three steps: 1. The basic witness hat, which is unvarying from one witness to the next; 2. Full debriefing and resulting understanding of prospective testimony;, and 3. Finalization of the testimony with the lawyer. Steps 1 and 2 would be handled by the GO terminal assisting the lawyer for that portion of the case, and step 3 would be done by the GO terminal and the lawyer. There is basic data about being a witness which should be given to every witness, to give them reality on what It will be like, answer their questions. etc. Following are the areas which we would cover (for the IRS case) as basic witness hatting. 1. It is helpful to describe to the person the physical space 'of the courtroom (and, If possible, to have the person visit the actual courtroom where he will be giving his evidence). Tell (or show) the witness where he will sit; where the judge, the clerk, and the reporter each sit; and what roles they play. , Tell (or show) him where counsel and where the audience will be seated. The witness may want to do a little reach and withdraw on the space of the courtroom, and this can usually be accomplished during a recess. The witness should be encouraged to 'take control of the courtroom. -1- (0031) 2. The statistic for a witness Is something like 'length of time on the Stand' (keeping In mind the purpose of each witness to deliver certain evidence comfortably, persuasively and honestly so the judge can duplicate and agree with it). A witness will always experience discomfort. anxiety, etc., and will have (at first) a strong desire to get It over with." The danger here Is that his/her testimony will become condensed or abbreviated to as to get off the stand as quickly as possible. The witness should be warned against this phenomenon. We want a witness to understand that (under ordinary circumstances) they will have done better to stay on a long time, and they should get their TRO In and be there comfortably for as long as It takes. After a time, they Invariably loosen up and actually begin to enjoy the experience such that they become willing to stay on and on. A witness who makes only a brief appearance leaves little or no Impression on the judge. A trial judge or a juror must, as part of his hat, determine what degree of credibility each witness possesses, and accordingly what relative weight to give to that witness' evidence. A judge or juror does this by observation of the witness' demeanor as much as by the testimony given. A witness who is willing to be there, and answer in as much detail as necessary (not chopping his evidence short out of desire to "blow" from the stand), gives the judge or juror more time to observe, and get to know that witness;. it is a matter of increasing ARC between witness and Judqe or juror which results In the judge retaining the data better and also according It more weight as he will have sussed out that witness for believability. 3. The witness should know that he may be questioned by the judge directly on some point of Interest or at a lull In the examination being done by counsel. If that occurs, the witness should give his answer directly to the judge, respectfully and with high ARC and attention to fully and actually answering the question asked. -2- (0032) Also there are times, though they Should be rare and sparsely used, When the Witness may want to address himself to the judge, seeking his advice or aid. For example, If witness feels he simply cannot answer a Cross-exam question both a yes or no, but must make an accompanying explanation, he may ask the judge for leave to explain or qualify his answer. 'This comm line can be used to good advantage In a situation where the line of questioning Is probing an area of the witness' religious belief (or where, perhaps, the questions are designed to address or elicit upper level material): The witness can originate that this question is improper as it seeks Information about his personal religious belief Or data that he considers confidential as part of his beliefs, and that he has taken a perpetual vow never to disclose. Address to the judge Is not to be over-used or relied on by the witness to any advantage, but the witness should know that he can have a comm line to the judge, to appeal for protection. 4. Related to point 2 above, a witness should also be told that his testimony should be calm and reasonable. Although it Is part of his purpose to persuade the judge, this is done by creating credibility, not by acting as an advocate. Advocacy is the lawyers job, and the representations of a lawyer are not evidence; the statements of a witness under oath are. Emotional reactions by the witness, argument with a cross-examining attorney, or attempts to "handle" an antagonistic cross-exam by tone scale handling are not OK. A PR-trained witness may get Into handing his Interrogator, Instinctively, and this is to be warned against. One of the judge's chief tools for according weight or credibility to a witness and his testimony is the presence or absence of bias: an argumentative witness, or one-who tries to persuade, is seen as biased, and his testimony is given less weight. . The judge's thinking Is along the line that this witness has something at stake (money, status, his job, having to be right, etc.), and would thus be willing to say almost anything in defense of his position. Credibility comes about by being honest, willing to answer/explain, and natural. (The useful -3- (0033) exception to this is "righteous Indignation' of a witness questioned about his personal beliefs, as discussed above). 5. The prospective witness rust be instructed on the actual comm cycle of giving testimony. If the person is our witness, then direct exam will be conducted by our lawyer, followed by cross-exam done by the opposition lawyer. Then comes a redirect exam, done again by our lawyer (followed possibly by a short recross-exam). During direct exam our witness will be asked the questions which have more or less been prepared In advance by ourselves (the witness, the GO terminal responsible, and the lawyer). None of these questions should come as a surprise, though they may be taken up in relatively random order. In response to these questions, we are usually looking for relatively detailed answers, with specific points to be made. These answers may be fairly lengthy, depending on what the court will allow. Some judges may allow 'narrative' type answers, where others may demand that the questioning attorney stick to a strict question-and-answer format. 6.. During cross-examination (conducted by the opposition lawyer, for the purpose of unmocking the credibility and consistency of the witness), the witness should NEVER VOLUNTEER ANTHING. The exact question asked should be answered, no more, no less. Q: "When did you read that policy letter? A: "On the 16th May as best I can recall." NOT A: "I recall It was the 16th May as I had just returned that morning from a mission." (The latter would give the lawyer a string to pull--what mission? Where? Why? Etc.) Part of answering only the exact question asked Is bearing and responding to only the words used; the tone level of the question is to be Ignored. Most cross-exam Is conducted at the tone of covert hostility, and this Is to be taken into consideration. A clever cross-examiner can make any statement sound suspicious and any question -4- (0034) sound accusatory; but our witness, expecting this and listening only to the words and not the tone, will not take the bait. A cross-examination proceeds by the opposing attorney asking questions designed to (1) expose known or recognized out-points In the direct testimony of our witness, and (2) lead our witness to volunteer other data which will become a 'string' to be pulled. A good cross-examiner will pull each and every string In the hope that he will find the Sherman tank which destroys that witness' credibility. A good witness who can answer the questions exactly without volunteering data or being drawn into argument or acting evasive, will emerge unscathed. The cross-examining attorney may simply give up after a few failed lines of questioning. But the witness must be willing to sit it out comfortably: we have seen witnesses who gave one day of direct testimony and then had to sit through four or five days of cross-exam (and they came out of it quite keyed out and ready to go on for as long as it took:) but this is the exception and not the rule. 7. By sticking to short, directly responsive answers (basically: yes, no, I don't know, I don't remember), the witness will Invariably find that some of these answers felt incomplete, or sounded unfavorable: they would like to have explained the answer a bit,, remedying the sense of " omitted" data with "all related facts known." But cross-exam is not the time to correct our own outpoints: this is handled on redirect exam. Our lawyer will have listened carefully to all the cross-exam testimony, and noted down the points which sounded Incomplete or unfavorable. These will each be cleaned up or rehabbed on redirect, so that any negative effect Is minimized. Also there Is often a short recess between cross-exam and redirect exam, so the witness can tell the lawyer any points which he feels should be cleaned up. Knowing this in advance, the witness can be willing to have his needle "dirtied" on cross-exam and "cleaned" on re-direct. -5- (0035) 8. When a question is asked of the witness, he should see if there is an objection forthcoming from the opposite attorney. This Is especially true during cross-examination where our attorney will be trying to protect our witness from Improper lines of questioning. This does not mean that the witness pauses and looks at our attorney.. An obvious comm lag can look like the witness has to "think up an answer" and this hurts his credibility. If there Is an objection made, It occurs by the attorney standing up and stating: "Objection--that question Is Improper because of blah blah blah." There may be argument back and forth on this by the attorneys for both sides, then the judge will rule. The objection will either be sustained by the court (i.e., the judge agrees that the question is improper, and the witness Is to ignore the question) or overruled (i.e., the objection does not stand, and the witness must now answer.) If the witness is not paying attention, and simply hurriedly answers the question, he has cut off our lawyer from making any meaningful objection. If the witness answers the question while an objection is being interposed, the court reporter may ignore the objection and record the answer given by the witness or the judge may say, "Well, the answer's in. Neither of these situations is optimum, so the witness should see If there are objections. If the witness sees the attorney start to rise, he should shut up; otherwise, he should continue measured comm. 9. A small point, perhaps, but the witness should be told that he cannot expect to be acknowledged while giving testimony. The comm cycle is question-answer, next question-next answer, etc. There Is no ack in this comm cycle, and in fact this is sometimes used as a tool by the cross-examiner. He may ask a question, then turn and walk away from the witness, seemingly ignoring him even after completion of his answer. An uninformed witness might feel uncomfortable, unacknowledged, and feel compelled to answer further, to fill the silence, to ltsa. That Is what the cross-examiner wants. for the witness to run on and on, volunteering -6- (0036) data, giving up strings to pull, and. looking uneasy to the judge. So watch out for this phenomenon too. 20. The witness is sworn to tell the truth, And he must, of course, do no. The scope of his testimony and the patter for certain areas will be worked out with counsel, so that there can be minimum risk to our case and to the witness In sensitive areas. If a witness Is privy to "too much" sensitive or possibly unfavorable data, he may well have been eliminated from our witness list early on. Perjury, i.e., lying under oath, is a crime (and, as we know, Is usually self destructive for the individual); we want our witnesses to tell the truth. Impeachment is a term which just means that this witness is, in the judge's eyes, unworthy of belief (due to his demeanor, numerous or major Inconsistencies in the testimony, or bias). Both these terms (perjury and impeachment) should be gone over with our witnesses so it is no mystery or MU if they come up in court. We had one witness who, hearing the opposition announce that they would try to impeach her, clammed up on the stand, thinking she would be taken off to jail. (During a recess we cleaned up the MU and she then did fine.) 11. Our witness should be Informed that it Is OK that they have talked with the lawyer (and hit assistants--the GO staff) prior to testifyi ng. No lawyer would ever put on a witness he had not worked with, and for a witness to deny this destroys his credibility immediately. It Is a Common tactic for the cross-examining lawyer to ask the witness if he had discussed his testimony with the Church's lawyer; If our witness doesn't know about this, he will either manifest a "missed withhold of nothing" (and be enturbulated in his testimony), or worse yet, lie about it (thus losing all credibility before the judge). -7- (0037) 12. The witness should not look at the lawyer for our side or the GO terminal or the audience when being cross-examined. He should look at the cross-examiner, unless our attorney takes an objection. If the witness looks continuously at our lawyer, the judge or juror will think that the witness is seeking guidance from the lawyer and this affects credibility. This Is not OK. Rather, the witness should be natural, looking at the person originating the comm. If the above points 1-12 are gone over with each of your witnesses at the outset, they will be much more comfortable, cooperative and successful. They need to know what to expect if they are to help. Answer all their questions, as best you can; some questions the lawyer may have to answer (e.g., If the particular witness needs independent advice about claiming a 5th Amendment,, attorney/client, priest/penitent or other privilege). These points have been taken from notes of witness hatting sessions done with the trial lawyers for the IRS case; they should be useful In the circumstances of most US trial work. That's it. (0038) Exhibit D (Title page no number) (rubber stamped) CONFIDENTIAL ATTORNEY CLIENT Privledged Materials 27.January 1982 Addendum to Hat Writeups re (1) Hatting the Witness and (2) Preparing the Witness HATTING A few additional points should be included in the description of how to hat a person on what it is to be a witness in a Scientology case. These are: 1. The witness must have a good feel for what particles, comm lines, command lines, writings, activities etc., in a Scientology org are "ecclesiastical" and those that are "secular/corporate/legal." In this regard, the potential witness should definitely read Bob Harris' short exposition on the area called "Understanding Corporate Integrity II" and any disagreements or questions should be handled right away. He must have a flexible understanding of what things are corporate/legal matters and what are not. This is an area that will have to be gone over very carefully in preparing any witness for cross-exam, for it is a very fertile area for such. The witness must understand the hierarchical nature of the Church of Scientology and the nature of the relationships among Scientology terminals and organizations. You might want to show him a chart to help tin understand the area. Such a chart was put into evidence in the 70-72 case (but may not be of use to everyone as It .depicts relationships only during that period. Watch out, however, as -the witness' understanding and ability to answer questions about this Area must still and always be realistic, practical, and from the reality and point of view of that individual: In other words, a person who was the Mimeo operator at the Hawaii org for six year s will have a general understanding that comes from being a staff member and a Scientologist, but his 'personal knowledge' and experience will be vastly different from that of a person who held high exec positions (e.g., Commodore's Staff -Aides or WW terminals) . You don't want your witness to appear to have (0040) been "briefed," you want him to have his own understanding and personal knowledge--OR LACK OF IT. You Just want to be sure that he either is Perfectly equipped to handle this area, by virtue of intelligence, training, nature of posts and experience and duplication of the concepts Involved. or you want him to really recognize his limitations In the area so he cannot be led Into testifying about It. (This approach Is really a general rule for all witnesses--It Is patently incredible for a comm runner to tell the court about management activities at Flag, or the compensation of the Founder, e.g.) 2. The witness, while testifying, should always refer to any particle by Its exhibit number: whenever he talks about a tangible particle In front of him, it's not "this" or 'that,' It's always "Exhibit AB," or "the document marked Exhibit 236," etc. Otherwise the transcript of the testimony cannot be understood when read. The transcript, together with the exhibits themselves, are the complete RECORD of the case. It Is what we will have to refer to in part If we are to appeal any case. Without an intelligible record, we cannot prove our case. So this particular bit of admin (marking documents as exhibits by letter or number) was developed to ensure a readable record. The witness should know this so that he can be careful to refer to everything by name or number. 3. Another aspect of understanding the comm cycle of the courtroom and particularly the comm cycle of cross-exam is something I call the "alter-ack." I have seen the cross-examining IRS attorney use this technique continually. He will ask the witness a question, and then appear to not understand the answer given; he will ask further clarifying questions. still seeming to get It all wrong (when he probably understands full well what he Is shooting for with that particular witness). This is of course, very frustrating to the witness: he is not only not receiving any verbal ack from the lawyer, he is also not being duplicated at all. There is an eagerness on the part of anyone in a comm cycle to achieve duplication, and the witness may want to clarify ,the matter. But watch out. The lawyer, after a series of questions that (0041) make it seem he simply didn't get it, he will say something Iike, "OK, let me understand this--you said Blah Blah Blah"; he will almost restate the witness' words back to him. The witness will then leap to say "Yes!" and get the relief of having been duplicated. Usually, though, the lawyer will have restated the testimony with some sort of cunning alteration in It, some hook in it that is not what the witness would have said had he really thought about It. but if the witness has agreed, then there it is on the record. There was an example of this In the IRS 70-72 case where a witness was being asked a series of dumb questions off of an ASHO ethics order, and the cross-examining attorney was getting it all mixed up, finally restating part of the witness' words and stretching It to the conclusion that "ASHO Is a subsidiary of the Sea Org"--to which our witness said "yes!" Well that is simply untrue, and is even preposterous to anyone who knows the facts (that ASHO was part of the corporation CSC, that the SO has never been a corporate entity, and that there is NO legal relationship between the two--and the term "subsidiary" is wholly a legal term). The witness was dying for an ack and some duplication from the lawyer; what he got was a false duplication ("Oh, I see: ASHO is a subsidiary of the SO") and what we got was a false and/or damaging statement on the record by someone who had no real knowledge of the facts of that area. 4. Generalities vs. specifics. 'Scientologists usually try to avoid dealing in generalities, but there are such things as good generalities. Entheta and suppressive statements from the cross-examining attorney will often take the form of generalities. When confronted by the opposition lawyer by generalities, our witness should ask for specifics. That will often totally cut the lawyer's line of cross-exam (as he Is proceeding by generalities and cannot have or use the specifics). On the other hand, our witness should look for opportunities to use theta generalities; since It's theta, the cross-examiner will not ask for specifics--he's stung and he'll want to Set away from that area. If he does ask for specifics, the witness should supply them, and chances are It will end up hurting the (0042) opposition. Examples: "Every Scientologist knows it would be violative of the creeds and codes to lie about or falsify recorfd," or "Scientology has helped thousands of people to better lives," or "We all know, or any Scientologist who has read and understood the writings of our religion would surely know, that it is a religion and it deals with the Spirit of Man," or "We all know that the aim of Scientology is a civilization without war, crime, Insanity . . . . " An entheta cross-examiner will steer away from that stuff like a vampire from a cross. Just let him have it--with theta!! 5. A witness is to testify to things he knows of his personal knowledge only (except when he's launching a theta generality). He can only testify to what he did or saw; he cannot say what another told him he saw or did. This aspect is very useful to our witnesses on cross-exam: when being questioned about a difficult area, the witness should ask himself, -How do I know that? Did I see It or do It?" and he won't let himself be led into an area where he Is not prepared, or isn't competent to testify or is speculating or making conclusions. Speculation and conclusion are not usually admissible testimony, but a clever cross-examiner can lead the witness off into an area where he assumes what the "right" answer is, but doesn't really have personal knowledge. Example: Q--"What would you do If LRH ordered you to sell the ship?" The correct answer (if your -witness never received such an order)-would NOT be: A-'Well,, gosh. I guess I'd sell the ship..."; the proper answer would be: A--"That never happened." Period. That answer will alert the judge that the question was improper, a request for speculation on the part of the witness.. 6. Along the line of answering the exact question asked, and not getting outside of personal knowledge, the witness should keep in mind on cross-exam this tip: BE LITERAL. If the attorney doesn't know enough to ask the right question, he won't get the answer he's after. Don't help the poor, blundering soul. Sit back and answer the questions literally. 7. It Is favorite trick of government lawyers (at least It sure was In the IRS 70-72 case) to try and Impeach a Scientology witness on the text of PLs. One can only be Impeached by being led to testify contrary to what one has previously written or said. One cannot be Impeached (or shown to be Inconsistent and therefore not cre dible) by being shown a PL (0043) which says something different from what one has testified to (unless, of course, the witness Is the author of the PL and cannot explain satisfactorily the circumstances and Intent of the Issue). The natural reaction of most staff members Is to adjust or modify what he has said so that It does conform to policy letters; as a good Scientologist or staff member he doesn't want to be accused of disagreement with or noncompliance to PLs. But the courtroom Is different; no one Is going to get into trouble for saying they didn't follow a particular PL. The ,witness Is better off sticking to his own reality and previous statement than by back-pedalling and modifying his testimony to make it "agree" with a PL he Is confronted with. Don't be intimidated by this tactic! A PL says what it says, and the witness In not responsible for those words, nor for whether or not he applied that particular PL. That may sound heretical at first, but unless the witness understands it and is flexible enough to be "in court" and not "on post" or before an ethics Investigation, he can be led Into very uncomfortable situations (and into making statements that could hurt the Church's case). B. In summary, the above points to teach a witness regarding cross-exam are these: Specifics vs. Generalities Personal Knowledge Be Literal Ecclesiastical vs. Corporate/Legal Don't Fear "lmpeachment" From PLs 9. The witness will also need to have a thorough understanding (once again, commensurate with his post, training and experience, and Intelligence) of the religious nature of Scientology and how this is evident in many interrelated things. For example, we all know that the Tech Volumes are clearly religious In content; but what about the OEC? It contains Issues on how to run an organization, how to get orders Issued and complied with how to write an (0044) Invoice and keep financial records. What's religious about that? well, take a look at It. We have a 1st dynamic tech In auditing; we also have a 3rd dynamic tech of dealing with groups/organizations. On the grade chart there Is also (up the center) an Awareness Scale with awareness characteristics In an ascending gradient. Those same awareness characteristics appear on the org board, assigned to each of the 21 departments. Those 7 divisions of the org board are the 7 volumes of the OEC. What is the org board? It's not a chart of any specific org; it's a description of relationships and a way of handling life. An org may operate off an org board, but it's equally applicable to any size group, ox even to any individual. It's a philosophic machine, not a chart of some commercial company. It Is based quite exactly on Scientology doctrinal concepts. The OEC contains ethics PLs. Are they religious? Certainly. They deal with doctrinal concepts about the being and how to handle him. Even something as mundane and "secular" as writing an invoice can be traced to a basic Scientology concept that "Truth Is the exact time, place, form and event." If one cared to undertake the project, the entirety of LRH policy could be traced to basic concepts of communication, ethics, etc., and into the Axioms and Factors. The key here is that to almost any Scientologist who stops to think about It, the concepts underlying the org board and the OEC are part of our religion. to an outsider they may seem "secular," but they carry a different and deeper meaning for the Scientologist if for no other reason than they are written by LRH, the Founder. Understanding this, the witness cannot be caught off guard or put in an uncomfortable position regarding PLs, org boards, etc. Be can know they are religious in nature and can believe that to be true. It's really part of his belief, it can't be questioned beyond that by a civil court. 10. You will have seen from the points listed in this writeup and the others about hatting and preparing witnesses that what it comes down to Is that EVERY SCIENTOLOGY WITNESS CAN AND WILL BE ASKED ANY AND ALL (0045) KINDS OF QUESTIONS ON CROSS-EXAM. Don't think that a witness who was only called to Identify a piece of paper from a file can't and won't (if the judge is blind enough to allow this) be cross-examined on org boards, ethics. nature of policy, hierarchical and corporate relationships, etc. To the opposing attorney, all Scientology witnesses are "Fair Game" for all entheta cross-exam. So ALL SCIENTOLOGY WITNESSES HAVE TO BE READY TO HANDLE VIRTUALLY EVERYTHING, regardless of the scope of direct exam. Prepare them accordingly and they will do well and we will win; leave them unprepared in any of these areas an they will get caught in something they can't control. Few Scientology witnesses are naturals at this; some only take a little work, some take days and days. There is no substitute for going over direct and expected or-even unexpected cross-exam with the witness and the lawyer until it Is perfect. The way we handled witness prep was to work up an outline of the points to be covered in direct exam (as described In another hat writeup). We would use this in prepping the witness, and the lawyer would use it in court (the lawyer cannot work from a script, but he needs the BC of an outline or list of areas to cover); the staff person working with the lawyer will then also rely on this outline to ensure the direct exam Is complete. Since every Scientology witness must be prepared for cross on a multitude of areas, we used a checklist as a tool for this. It was rather like assessing a list with a PC. We had an overall list of areas To cover. These are some examples: Corporate vs ecclesiastical Nature of Policy Is DEC Religious? Relationship of Flag to S0 What was 0TC? Ever asked to backdate a document? Flag's relationship to CSC Fair Game (0046) We would run down that list with each witness asking a question or two about the item to see how the witness would handle; perhaps he knew nothing about corporations or OTC or Flag. When we would hit a "hot" area (where the witness appeared to have knowledge and could be questioned but gave an unfavorable answer or otherwise showed he didn't duplicate the implications of cross-exam In that area), we would take it up at length, Practicing cross and hatting the witness on the concepts (e.g. OEC as religious) until he was stable and confident. Once through the entire list (this might take days), that witness was ready to testify and only needed brushup on direct and cross on the day before going on the stand. The purpose Of going over direct and anticipated cross is not to inculcate "Pat" answers or robotism, but to nurture understanding and the ability to handle the cross-exam questions. It goes without saying that you also have to have a lawyer who (1) Is very experienced at trial work, And 2) has a very thorough working knowledge of Scientology. For an experienced lawyer who doesn't really understand Scientology, It will be unreal to him that every witness has to be able to defend himself in every area. He will think that he can effectively use the "Rules" (of Evidence) to prevent improper cross-exam. He could be in for a very unpleasant surprise about that at trial. There is no other animal on the face of the Earth like a Scientology trial and he'll have to know It--or we get another Christo case. That's It. DD/GUS (0047) Affidavit of Steven Fishman Case # 91-6426 HLH (Tx) Continued EXHIBIT E (title page) EYE'S ONLY TOPSECRET Duke, Here is plan discussed, love Bryce PROJECT QUAKER (Refer to the persons concerned as "the friends") INFORMATION: It may be deemed necessary for all the DC Staff who could be pulled in for questioning 'to suddenly leave. This must be done in such a way So that they never can be accused of "fleeing prosecution". MAJOR TARGET To ensure that all those DC staff concerned are not available for questioning by Scales yet cannot be prosecuted for fleeing. PRIMARY TARGETS 1. US B1 SEUS SEC is responsible for seeing that this project gets speedily done. He is to work closely with DC INFQ US and DG US on this project. 2. The purpose of this project is to protect the Church from Scales actions. 3. D/NAT'L SEC is responsible for the overall planning of those actions and their debugging as necessary. (0049) VITAL TARGETS 1. To ensure that extremely tight security is maintained on this project. 2. To ensure that it gets done speedily. 3. To ensure that each aaction is smoothly worked out so that if evaluation is necessary it will be done without a 'hitch' or mistake. 4. To get finances quickly for this project. 5. To get approval up lines on this project "super fast" so that it can be got done really fast. OPERATING TARGETS 1. Each person to whom this project pertains must immediately get his/her passport. This must be done withing security's framework, meaning the person doesn't mention CofS on the passport. For occupation list Researcher - Public Relations Consultant - etc. or houswife for girls that are married. Production target 2 weeks on this. As assigned. 2. US D1 SEUS SEC is to work up an ED or some such official type proclamation entitled "Sabbatical Leaves." This can be worked out with both D/NAT'L SEC US B1 and DDG US. The above shall basically state that about 10 GO personnel shall be chosen for Sabbatical leaves. This shall start with the Founding Church in Washington DC. This is being done as an award for upstats who consistently produce well, and as an experiment to see what an energetic staff member will do on his own if given 3 to 6 months to travel and study and use scn tech. The rules are (0050) the persons are to: 1) To observe coventry and to not communicate to a fellow Scientist during this time 2) They are to spend at least some of this time in "retreat" where they are to study their choice of topics. 3) They may travel anywhere in the world to do this. 4) They are to produce at the end of this time a product of use to Scn. 5) They may prepare ahead of time but must start from scratch. This project is called "Ten Talents" after the biblical tale. A quote should be gotten from the bible and put into the ED. US B1 SEUS SEC 3. When the above Ed is completed, it should be sent to all GO DC staff wherever needed. It should appear real to those whom it does not affect. US B1 SEUS SEC 4. US B1 SEUS SEC is to work out the comm the pertinent persons are to give on this to thier relatives or fellow staff. This should be done ahead of time A.S .A.P so that when and if persons have "to go" it will not cause any flaps or PTS situations. "All" should be ready to leave at any time. US B1 SEC 5. US B1 SEC is to ensure that all concerned are ready to leave at any time and that all personal cycles finances, 2D, bills, are completely up to PT and there are no PTPs or stops to immeduate departure. US B1 SEUS SEC. 6. US B1 SEUS SEC is to see AG DC keeps all staff actions written up to PT and that machinery exists, to as best as possible, take over, for each person (including the AG) if this action were needed to be done. This should be worked out in liason with DDG US and (0051) DG US. US B1 SEUS SEC. 7) US B1 SEUS SEC is to immediately do up a confidential CS-W for "set-aside" finances for this project. This is for seven or eight people so the amount should be about $10,000 for starters. Any help needed on this can come from DDG US or DG US. These finances should be given to AG DC to hold in case this actions is implimented. US SEUS SEC B1 8) SEUS SEC B1 is to ensure that the "need to know" is strictly followed on this project. No communicators are to know. The Need to Know is limited to DG US; DDG US; DG I US, DDG I US; US b1 NAT'L SEC, D/NAT'L SEC US; any US DG's that must know are told by DG US; and those DG staff that this concerns. 9) SEUS SEC US B1 is to set up an "early warning" system whereby he or DG US can be notified immediately with any info needed to decide to put 'Failsafe' into action. SEUS SEC US B1 10. A "safehouse" or "safehouse area" should be chosen in an out of the way place, like a ski resort - Dude ranch - farm - Canada - Mexico - etc., This "place" ahould be investigated to ensure it can be used anytime of the year by people just "showing up". This "safe house" is for Sabbaticals to go til it is shown one way or another that they must stay away or come back. SEUS SEC US B1 11. A cover story as to why "they" all went there; without the Church knowing it, must be worked out - as this breaks Sabbatical rules. SEUS SEC US B1 12. Seven safe different places (or as many as needed) must be worked out, where the Sabbaticals will go if they must extend extend their leave. One for each person. SEUS SEC US B1 (0052) 13. Secure comm lines, codes, etc., must be worked out for this "safe house" are in #10, and each different plave in #12 above. This must be done before any Sabbaticals are taken. SEUS SEC US B1 14. The entire DC Org should be alerted in some way to this Sabbatical "cover story". And if needed to be implimented the DC Org should be informed of this "award for" those concerned. (The one, two - 10 Talent analogy should be used). This is to take all the mystery off the line and make it no surprise as well as handling any testimony in court by any staff. SEUS SEC US B1 15. When all of the above actions are worked out to the DG I/DG US's satisfaction, a chock list, code words, etc., are to be worked out so that if deemed necessary the Sabbaticals will go off like clockwork. SEUS SEC US B1 16. Upon completion of targets 1-15, D/NAT'L SEC is to fly to DC on mission. His MO's will be the briefing and any necessary drilling to be done to prepare the "persons" for thier "Sabbaticals" if necessary to impliment. MOs to be written by SEUS SEC US B1 and approved by DG I US and DG US.

Sorry, it's in Dutch, no time to translate till now. Citations from the original text stayed in English. -- MAGAZINE ARTICLES ON LEVEL 0 CHECKSHEET BY L RON HUBBARD Dit zijn Hubbards richtlijnen voor de verspreiding van Scientologie-materiaal. Het verhaal is om verschillende redenen interessant. Het biedt niet-scientologen, zeg maar het wild waarop de colporteurs in de Kalverstraat jagen en de ontvangers van de bekende Dianetics-foldertjes over de ongebruikte hersenen van Einstein, enig inzicht in de trucendoos waarmee de sekte de publieke opinie tracht te bespelen. Ook onthult het iets over de visie van de sekte op processen. Het zijn niet de enige interne publicaties van de sekte over deze onderwerpen. Een mooie blik achter de schermen geeft bijvoorbeeld een ander document in de Fishmanverklaring waarin Hubbard uitlegt hoe je getuigen op een proces voorbereidt en in het uiterste geval in het buitenland laat onderduiken, buiten bereik van Justitie. Het is van belang, begint Hubbard, je gehoor niet te belasten met materiaal dat het niet aankan: "When materials are issued above the acceptance level of an audience, a confusion results. A confusion in the antithesis of a flow.' Een goed didactisch uigangspunt lijkt het, ware het niet dat Hubbard later andere dan didactische doelen blijkt na te streven. Zo treedt hij met voeten de richtlijn uit de didactiek: laat mensen zelf dingen ontdekken en verwerken. Allereerst moet Scientologie een goed publiek imago hebben, meent Hubbard. Dat imago moet zich vooral verspreiden via mond tot mond reclame. Hoopvol schetst hij een beeld: "For instance, if somebody is having headaches, we would his friends to come to the obvious solution that this person should see a Scientologist or should join a group undergoing processing." Uit dit ene citaat valt al te vermoeden welke tegenstand Hubbard voorziet bij het bereiken van deze idyllische toestand. Een onderzoekende pers kan roet in het eten gooien, net als de nare gewoonte van mensen om bij kwalen niet naar een sekte maar naar hun huisarts te gaan. Er zijn figuren die het wagen de sekte te dagvaarden, bijvoorbeeld wegens het onbevoegd uitoefenen der geneeskunde. Geestelijken van echte religies claimen deskundigheid op religieus gebied. Tenslotte ligt er concurrentie op de loer die dezelfde behandelmethoden als Scientologie toepast. De pers is het eerste doelwit van de grote meester: "we do not want Scientology to be reported in the press, anywhere else than on the religious page of newspapers. It is destructive of word of mouth to permit the public presses to express their biased and badly reported sensationalism." In een adem verklaart hij hier de bekende intimidatietaktiek van de sekte van toepassing: sleep ze voor de rechter, al was het maar om ze het noemen van Scientologie in te peperen: "Therefore we should be very alert to sue for slander at the slightest chance so as to discourage the public presses from mentioning Scientology. What the newspapers say is not word of mouth." Ook voor mensen die zelf de sekte voor de rechter dagen heeft Hubbard zijn juridische recept klaar. Als iemand je laat arresteren voor het behandelen van mensen dien je onmiddelijk een schadeclaim in van 100.000 dollar vanwege de arrestatie van een Man van God die zijn beroep uitoefende en vanwege de publieke beschadiging. Je ziet Hubbard zich langzaam opwinden tijdens het schrijven: "DO NOT simply fall back out of communication if you are attacked, but attack, much more forcefully and artfully and arduosly. And if you are foolish enough to have an attorney who tells you not to sue, immediately dismiss him and get an attorney who will sue." Met andere woorden: wat ben je eigenlijk voor minkukel om de verkeerde advokaat te kiezen, maar vooruit, zoek als de sodemieter een andere. Als geen enkele advokaat het ziet zitten, heeft de sekte altijd nog standaardformulieren klaar liggen om zelf een proces aan te spannen. Omdat een proces dus zelfs doorgang vindt als deskundigen, i.c. advokaten, de kans op winnen nul achten, dringt zich ook hier de mening op dat een proces vooral dient om het de tegenstander lastig te maken. Hubbards adrenaline is intussen echt lekker aan het stromen. Hij gaat helemaal uit zijn dak, verliest de realiteit van een procesgang compleet uit het oog en donderpreekt: "Cause blue flame to dance over the court house roof until everybody has apologized profusely for having dared to become so adventurous as to arrest a Scientologist who, as a minsietr of the church, was going about his regular duties." Op dat moment, stel ik me voor, komt mevrouw Hubbard binnen met de koffie en kijkt bezorgd naar haar man die roodaangelopen achter de typemachine zit. 'Overdrijf je niet een beetje Ronnepon', zucht ze, over zijn schouder meelezend. En dan ziet ze weer hoe dom en parano‹de de man geworden is waar ze ooit zo van heeft gehouden. Ik had eens een advokaat die me aanraadde geen proces aan te spannen, antwoordt Ron, zijn pennevrucht vervolgend, en weet je, hij bleek ook te werken voor de tegenstander!, echt waar. "This actually occurred, so beware of attorneys that tell you not to sue." Ron trekt de vergelijking met een belegerd fort: "If that fortress does not make allies, does not send forth patrols to attack and harrass, and does not utilize itself to make the beseiging of it a highly dangerous occupation, that fortress may, and most often does, fall" en komt dan met de veelgeciteerde uitspraak: "The DEFENSE of anything is UNTENABLE. The only way to defend anything is to ATTACK, and if you ever forget that, then you will lose every battle you are ever engaged in, whether it is in terms of personal conversation, public debate or court of law." Hij schijnt echt te denken dat zijn sekte zo altijd wint en fantaseert verder dat het grote publiek "will then have a communication line to the effect that Scientologists WIN. Don't ever let them have any other though that that Scientology takes all its objectives." Vanaf de kantelen van zijn belegerde kasteel door zijn kijker turend ontwaart Ron telkens nieuw gevaar aan de horizon. Zo zijn daar 'the professionals', waaronder psychologen, artsen en psychiaters. Hubbard begrijpt niet zo goed wat de lui bezield. Scientologie heeft met een psycholoog niet meer moeite dan met een Australische toverdokter, schrijft hij met neerbuigende welwillendheid. En we maken netzomin ruzie met een psychiater als met een barbaar die niks weet van atoomfysica. En sinds de medische professie onlangs het aderlaten achter zich liet, heeft ze best wel wat bereikt. Ze moeten alleen geen geld vragen voor de behandeling van kwalen die ze toch niet kunnen genezen: spirituele, mentale, psychosomatische en sociale kwalen. Vervolgens stapt Hubbard zonder uitleg af van zijn zojuist nog heftig geponeerde 'Always attack' 'whether it is in terms of personal conversation, public debate..'. Nee hij adviseert zijn volgelingen maar liever de diskussie met deze deskundigen te mijden. Inpalmen is nu het parool. Scientologen moeten zich tegenover dezelfde personen die Hubbard vergelijkt met toverdokters en barbaren voordoen als collega's met een eigen specialisatie, met een formulering als: "I do not see how there can be any discussion. But things that I can't handle in structure when called upon I will be very happy to refer to you, and I shall expect that when matters of the spirit come into question you will have enough understanding of life, where we are all specialists, to refer them to me" Aanvallen doe je pas als je op het matje wordt geroepen. Dan zeg je beschuldigend dat je je bezighoudt met zaken van de ziel. En als de artsen die je beschuldigen Christenen zijn heb je ze helemaal tuk, want "while you are being addressed by such people, discover yourself to be in a strange place where men pretending to be Christians doubt God, the Son of God, and the power of prayer. Your entire address to such people, in such a situation, publically or privately, should be entirely overt, accusative, and not at any time apologetic." Een ander belangrijk punt in positieve mond tot mond reclame is een goede reputatie, schrijft Hubbard. Hoe ie die kan behouden bij practisering van alle voorafgaande voorschriften vraagt hij zich niet af. Met een onverslaanbaar optimisme citeert hij het, zoals Karin Spaink al scherp opmerkte warrig geformuleerde artikel 4 van de Code voor Scientologen: "I pledge myself to punish to the fullest extent of my power anyone misusing or degrading Scientology to harmful ends." De enige manier om ervoor te zorgen dat Scientologie niet omlaag wordt gehaald of misbruikt, is ervoor te zorgen dat alleen degenen die erin getraind zijn het praktiseren. Niet gekwalificeerde beoefenaars moet de gelegenheid geboden worden om formeel opgeleid te worden, op eigen kosten. Verderop in het document blijkt Hubbard dat ook weer niet zo te bedoelen. Denk je net dat je alleen voor veel geld die cursus moet volgen, moet je ook nog lid worden van de sekte voor je je diploma krijgt. In tegenstelling tot medici aan wie in het algemeen belang op universiteiten een schat aan medische kennis is onderwezen, zijn beoefenaars van Scientologie-methoden gebonden aan de copyrights op de methoden. "In view of the fact that the HASI (organisatie van Scientologen) holds copyrights for all such material, and that a scientific organization of materials can be copyrighted and therefore owned." Geen lid van de sekte en wel de mensheid dienen met haar heilzame methoden? Voor de rechter wordt je gesleept, op zijn minst. Met weinig variatie varieert Hubbard op de riedel "The purpose of the suit is to harass and discourage rather than win." Als laatste verschijnt de aalmoezenier van de vijandelijke troepen aan de muren van Hubbards fort. Zo'n patertje is makkelijk af te wimpelen: "In addressing persons professionally interested in the ministry, we have another intersting problem in public presentation. We should not engage in religious discussions." doceert hij zijn manschappen. Ook hier ruilt hij zijn gloedvolle 'always attack' in voor een mix van discussie ontlopen, minachting en inpalmen. Een hautain "They believe in belief and substitute belief for wisdom." Hij voelt wel dat hier een schoen wringt, ook Scientologie claint immers een religie, een geloof, te zijn. Maar terwijl ze bij al die andere religies slechts geloven in het geloof, weten de Scientologen wat ze weten. "This makes Scientology no less a religion, but makes it a religion with an older tradition and puts it on an intellectual plane." "We are all-denominational rather than non-demoninational, and we should be perefectly willing to include in our ranks a Moslem, or a Taoist, as well as any Protestant or Catholic". Ziezo. Het klinkt niet echt overtuigend, maar misschien overtuigend genoeg voor zijn discipelen en de positie tegenover de Amerikaanse belastingdienst is veilig gesteld. Midden in een zin houdt de passage op. OT I L.Ron Hubbard There have been three different OT Its put out by Hubbard. here they all are. Earliest OT T 1. On an E-Meter, find the last 3,000 years of lifetimes. Plot out the entire 3,000 year chart as follows: (a) Find an overt lifetime. Get the identity and the approximate dates of birth and death. Find the overt and pull all the justifications to it. (b) Find the following motivator lifetime, and follow procedure as above. (Identity and dates.) (c) Find the postulate from each lifetime and the basic postulate in each group of lifetimes. (d) Continue the first three steps until the entire 3,000 years is charted and the individuals kharma, i.e. (over motivator sequence) becomes apparent. -1- (0060) (e) In some cases additional benefit could be obtained by locating the basic misunderstood which proceeded the basic overt on this chain. Second OT I (a) Route I ... The entire 15 steps as listed in "Creation of Human Ability". (b) With an E-Meter, scan out entire present lifetime to a floating needle. (c) Mock-up heat until body feels warm. (d) Postulating mass: With the use of the E-Meter and the command "I have Mass", create a reactive mind. Put sufficient significance on to,it to cause the T.A- to rise. Then spot it until the T.A. falls and the mass erases. Run to an FIN. Then mock it up again and erase it each time to a floating needle. This procedure is repeated until the pre-OT is certain he can create and dissipate a reactive mind. Third OT I The current OT I is done outdoors and consists solely of one -2- (0061) command run until cognition. "Spot a person" concludes OT I -3- (0062) The fragments of OT II en OT III have been replaced by summaries by Karin Spaink (thanks Karin), who not only did the enormous job of trieing to understand al this terrible jargon but als made those summaries much more readable than Hubbards original texts. It makes you understand why Hubbard failed as a science fiction writer and tried something else. The copyright of the summaries stays with Karin Spaink
OT II Course, summary and commentsIn OT 2,OT COURSE - SECTION TWO - INSTRUCTIONSHubbard gives instructions for the 'whole track tables', that is: the timeline of trillions of years of memory Scientologists claim to have. There are supposedly ten of them. In the following I will try to summarize it, because my lawyer, after having finally having seen evidence handed over to him on behalf of RTC, has advised me that including the full text is at this time against my interests. So be it. I therefore will give you this summary, taken from Michael Robinson's article Opa rating Thetan Summary and Analysis.Your comments are kindly invited. Please correct any errors and tell me about any information that I may have missed.
According to Hubbard, there are ten of these 'whole track' tables or time lines. Each time line contains only one GPM or 'Goals Problems Mass' (according to Martin Hunt's dictionary: "a supposed mass which develops when one is thwarted from reaching a Goal by a Problem or stop.") Each set should be run separately:
The GPM found in each set are as follows: ELECTRICAL, TOCKY, BIG BEING, HOUSE, PSYCHO, BANKY, FORERUNNER, BASIC-BASIC, BASIC, THE COMMAND, LOWER LP, LP, and BODY GPM. In addition to these GPM, there are a number of Implant Incidents which have no line plot, as follows: THE ARROW, DOUBLE ROD, WOMAN, WHITE BLACK SPHERE, HOT COLD, LAUGHTER CALM, and DANCE MOB.
The GPM in these "whole track tables" are supposedly the residual mass of incidents that happened untold numbers of lifetimes ago to the individual's immortal "thetan". Approximate dates for each of the incidents are provided, although some, such as "about trillions 214th Power years ago" for the BASIC BASIC GPM, challenge credulity regardless.
The version of Level Two reproduced in the Fishman Declaration is incomplete. A summary of the available GPM follows:
The GPM in these "whole track tables" are supposedly the residual mass of incidents that happened untold numbers of lifetimes ago to the individual's immortal "thetan". Approximate dates for each of the incidents are provided, although some, such as "about trillions 214th Power years ago" for the BASIC BASIC GPM, challenge credulity regardless.
The version of Level Two reproduced in the Fishman Declaration is incomplete. A summary of the available GPM follows:
ELECTRICALThe purpose of the ELECTRICAL GPM was to "CONVINCE a thetan he should think of himself as an electrical being". Thus, the end word of the permutation is not a word, but a shock. The permutation for the ELECTRICAL GPM is as follows:
| Create | | (shock) | | Destroy | | no (shock) | | Love | | Hate | | Be | | Disown | | Use | | Condemn | | Seize | | Escape |
TOCKYIn the TOCKY GPM, there is a swing of "Sun" from left to right which gives a read after each item. The permutation for the TOCKY GPM is as follows:| Create | | Sun Swing | | Abide | | no Sun Swing | | Enjoy | | Welcome | | Share | | Keep | | Hold | | Exploit | | Deplore | | Skip | | Continue | | Forget |Also included are the following two cryptic commands:
"That's what you get for making this Universe." "Get Out-"No explanation is given for what is "that", who exactly is "you", which universe is "this Universe", nor exactly "out" of what or where one is to get. Either it is expected that all these ambiguities will be clarified at the time one runs this GPM, or that the ambiguities are irrelevant, and it is sufficient simply to run the GPM without this information.
BIG BEINGThe BIG BEING GPM is associated with the image of an explosion and the subsequent appearance of a BIG BEING (thus the name) in the sky.
The permutation for the BIG BEING GPM is as follows:
| You | | Must | | Survive | | He | | Mustn't | | They | | Should | | We | | Shouldn't | | All | | Can | | Can't |This is followed by another explosion.
THE HOUSEThe only identification of this GPM is the possible appearance of a house or internal room.
THE ARROWIn the space of 1/10th of a second, an image appears of two back-to-back targets, the front white, and the back black, with an arrow centered on each of the targets (the two arrows thus aimed at each other).
WOMANThe figure of a woman appears for a few hours. Nothing else.
WHITE BLACK SPHEREAn image of a sphere and a pole, black in front, white in back.
HOT COLDFor 1 1/8 seconds an image appears of a split pole, cold in front, hot in back.
LAUGHTER CALMFor 7 1/8ths of a second, in a cave, screams of very wild laughter come from the rear (then front) of a split pole, while calm ("a frozen numbness") comes from the front (then rear), giving a sensation of total disagreement.
"The trick is to conceive of both at the same time."
DANCE MOBIn the incident proper, one is stuck on a pole and trying to get off it. After this, a chanting mob dances around. The Pre-OT is supposed to get the phrases the mob chants while running this incident.
However, the duration is only 7/8ths of a second, so it is not clear how much of the chanting the Pre-OT will be able to "get".
DOUBLE RODA long shiny black rod moves from left to right, develops a split in the middle, becoming a white rod revolving forward and a black rod revolving backward. Both rods then disappear forward and up.
According to L. Ron Hubbard:
"There is a tremendous feeling of EXCITEMENT attached to this incident. It has a sort of feeling attached to it as if it was being squashed between the two revolving rods."
BASIC BASICThis is actually a series of 5 GPM's consisting of explosions inside ones head, "where the Thetan is."
THE LOWER BANKContained in the lower bank are 48 pairs (of which 8 are found in the Fishman Declaration). All 48 affirmative items are first run, then the negative items, than each pair together. The pair schematic is as follows:
Affirmative: To build a _______ingness machine.The eight listed items are: postulate, think, ideanize (ideafyingness), reason, solve, order, space, and time.
Negative: Not to _______ yourself.
OT III Course, summary and comments
OT III Course, summary and commentsIn OT 3,OPERATING THETAN Section ThreeHubbard explains his cosmology and the ins & outs of 'body thetans'. I will try to summarize it, because my lawyer, after having finally having seen evidence handed over to him on behalf of RTC, has advised me that including the full text is at this time against my interests. So be it. I therefore will give you this summary, interspersed with comments. Your comments are kindly invited. Please correct any errors and tell me about any information that I may have missed. Page numbers refer to the version of OT 3 as given in the Fishman Affidavit.
The following portion of OT 3 is quoted in full in Margery Wakefield's book The Road to Xenu, chapter 13, and I believe all of it has been quoted in other books and articles as well. It provides a nice context for my summary and comments:
The head of the Galactic Federation (76 planets around larger stars visible from here) (founded 95,000,000 years ago, very space opera) solved overpopulation (250 billion or so per planet, 178 billion on average) by mass implanting. He caused people to be brought to Teegeeack (Earth) and put an H-Bomb on the principal volcanos (Incident II) and then the Pacific area ones were taken in boxes to Hawaii and the Atlantic area ones to Las Palmas and there "packaged". His name was Xenu. He used renegades. Various misleading data by means of circuits etc. was placed in the implants. When through with his crime loyal officers (to the people) captured him after six years of battle and put him in an electronic mountain trap where he still is. "They" are gone. The place (Confederation) has since been a desert. The length and brutality of it all was such that this Confederation never recovered. The implant is calculated to kill (by pneumonia etc) anyone who attempts to solve it. This liability has been dispensed with by my tech development. One can freewheel through the implant and die unless it is approached as precisely outlined. The "freewheel" (auto-running on and on) lasts too long, denies sleep etc and one dies. So be careful to do only Incidents I and II as given and not plow around and fail to complete one thetan at a time. In December 1967 I knew someone had to take the plunge. I did and emerged very knocked out, but alive. Probably the only one ever to do so in 75,000,000 years. I have all the data now, but only that given here is needful. One's body is a mass of individual thetans stuck to oneself or to the body. One has to clean them off by running incident II and Incident I. It is a long job, requiring care, patience and good auditing. You are running beings. They respond like any preclear. Some large, some small. Thetans believed they were one. This is the primary error. Good luck.
(p. 76-77) Well, lots of things to dissect and discuss here, and perhaps even more things that need some elucidation before we can even begin to understand what Hubbard says in this rather strange and condensed tidbit.
But before we start, I believe it may be useful to first explain some more about Scientology's basic beliefs; otherwise it's difficult to make head or tails of the quote.
Jon Atack, who once was a member of Scientology and who has in fact completed OT 3 before he became a very effective critic of the cult, has provided us with a very useful analysis, OT 3 rewritten for beginners. Here's what Jon says:
Scientologists believe that they have reincarnated from before the beginning of time. They believe that many interplanetary civilizations have existed. Hubbard restyled the spirit the "thetan". Before the beginning of time, thetans existed, separate from one another (thetans were not created; they have existed for all time and indeed precede the creation of time). With the creation of energy and matter, thetans have gradually become trapped. The principal method of entrapment is through "implanting", where the thetan is hypnotised and given positive suggestions which limit its powers. This process, according to Hubbard has been going on in this universe for four quadrillion years (4,000,000,000,000,000, rather than the mere 8-20,000,000 held by astrophysicists). However, this is just one universe in a series of several.Now that we know that, let's go through it again. Here's how the story start:
Scientology seeks to return the thetan's power by stripping away implants and using drills to heighten extrasensory perception and ability. The goal of these procedures is an "operating thetan" - a being who can act independently of his physical body, and can cause physical events to occur through sheer force of will. The "operating thetan" would be capable of dismissing illness and psychological disorder in others at will.
The head of the Galactic Federation (76 planets around larger stars visible from here) (founded 95,000,000 years ago, very space opera) solved overpopulation (250 billion or so per planet, 178 billion on average) by mass implanting. He caused people to be brought to Teegeeack (Earth) and put an H-Bomb on the principal volcanos (Incident II) and then the Pacific area ones were taken in boxes to Hawaii and the Atlantic area ones to Las Palmas and there "packaged".(p. 77) Hubbard believes in various universes, an idea that has been explored in sci-fi under the name of 'parallel universes'. Hubbard postulates that 95 million years ago, in our particular universe, a Galactic Federation was founded. There are, according to him, seventy-six planets that have gained membership to it. Sure bigger than the United Nations, and very space-opera indeed.
According to Hubbard, earth was once part of this Federation. It suffered from severe overpopulation; an average 178 billion people per planet is indeed rather crowded. The head of the Federation, whose name is later on to be revealed as 'Xenu', although some people think it's 'Xemu' (Hubbard's handwriting is spidery, and thus easy to misread) took draconian measures to reduce the number of inhabitants. Xenu transported the lot of them to earth, then referred to as 'Teegeeack'. After transportation, Xenu used hydrogen bombs on various volcanos and thereby wiped out all these people. Very effective indeed. He then proceeded to carry off their souls/spirits or 'thetans' and 'implanted' those. This episode - the transport, the bombing, the implanting - was labelled 'Incident II' by Hubbard.
In the other universes, other things happened. All thetans on this planet and on twenty-one nearby stars have Incident II and 'R6' in common. Hubbard refers to these twenty-two planets as 'the Confederation'.
It might be worth mentioning here that the Sea Org's insigna carries twenty-two stars. The number of stars is surely not chosen haphazardly: the insigna is obviously intended to be a symbol of this confederation that had to 'suffer' Incident II.
The other planets within the Galactic Federation - there were seventy-six of them, Hubbard says - supposedly have their own version of Incident II. And other universes - remember, Hubbard believed in parallel universes - would probably have other versions of Incident II as well. But what all universes have in common, according to Hubbard, is Incident I. He describes it in just a few lines and obviously didn't give the matter much thought, or perhaps he didn't dare 'to take the plunge' into this one. Hubbard doesn't say how much time this incident took, nor does he locate it. He's also noteably silent upon what happened in between Incident I and II, if I may say so.Incident I Occurs at start of track (4 quadrillion years ago). LOUD SNAP WAVES OF LIGHT CHARIOT COMES OUT, TURNS RIGHT AND LEFT CHERUB COMES OUT BLOWS HORN, COMES CLOSE SHATTERING SERIES OF SNAPS CHERUB FADES BACK (RETREATS) BLACKNESS DUMPED ON THETAN(p. 99-100) Judging by this, I don't think Hubbard supported either the Bing Bang or the Expanding Universe-theory in his private cosmology, although both make much more sense than his. Let's lable this one the Snap Story. We have here an undecisive cherub, who doesn't know whether to turn left or right and who comes out twice without ever retreating; and we have horns. A bit angelic for somebody who, as we shall see later, believed that Christ was an implant.
Let's turn to Incident II, which allegedly happened 75 million years ago and occurred on earth:Incident II is over 36 days long. Capture on other planets was weeks or months before the implant. Those on Teegeeack (Earth) were just blown up except for Loyal officers who were (shortly before the explosion on Earth) rounded up.(p. 79) So Xenu captured everybody who did not live on earth, held them imprisoned for a few weeks or sometimes even months, and then transported them to earth and mixed them with the rest, that is: the people who did live there. He then proceeded to nuke the lot. Just a few loyal officers escaped this major hydrogen bombing. Judging from this excerpt, it would seem that Hubbard conjures that loyal officers were only to be found on earth. That's exobiotist, I think... I also wonder where they went?
Incident II is described in greater detail. Here's the 'sequence':H-BOMB DROPPED ON VOLCNO EXPLOSION TERRIFIC WINDS THETAN CARRIED OVER PEAK ELECTRONIC RIBBON CAME UP HE STUCK TO IT IT WAS THEN PULLED DOWN AND HE WAS (AS PART OF A GROUP) IMPLANTED WITH R6 PICTURE OF PILOT SAYING HE IS MOCKING IT UP(p. 99) Every bit as cryptic, but at least he elaborates on it throughout OT 3. The bit about the thetan, the soul or spirit of a nuked-out guy, getting stuck to an electric ribbon surely reflects Margery Wakefield's comparison of them to insects: upon hearing for the first time about body thetans, she said they sounded like flees. Based on this description, I'd vote for flies.
Another nicety is the pilot mentioned in the last part of the sequence. Sounds like the ending of a bad horror movie: 'T was all a dream... But although 'mocking something up' usually means 'imagining it', in Scieno-lingo it means more than a mental picture; it is supposedly a self-created object; it is a thing which one can be. Operating Thetans are, again supposedly, able to 'mock up' a picture that has dimensions and location in space and time.
After the bombing, the thetans were 'implanted'. Hubbard decribes the 'sequence' of the 'implant' thus:(1) capture (being shot), (2) freezing, (3) transport to Teegeeack (sometimes via a relay point), (4) being placed near a volcano, (5) beginning implant up to "the pilot", (6) various picture sequences, (7) the 7s and C.C. and OT II materials, (8) 36 days of picture implants which give a vast array of materials and three explanations for the bombing, (9) transport to Hawaii or Las Palmas for packaging up into clusters. The pictures contain God, the Devil, angels, space opera, theaters, helicopters, a constant spinning, a spinning dancer, trains and various scenes very like modern England. You name it, it's in this implant we call in its entirely "R6".(p. 80). Jon Atack gives some more details than I've been able to find in the Fishman-version of OT 3. For instance, he explains how the thetans were transported, according to Hubbard:The people were killed and the thetans (or spirits) gathered, frozen in a mixture of glycol and alcohol, and brought to Earth where they were placed near volcanoes which were exploded with hydrogen bombs. The thetans were gathered on "electronic ribbons", packaged together as clusters and given 36 days of implanting, to render them servile and incapable of decision.So what happens is that they're caught, transported, nuked, get implanted up to a certain point (the pilot saying it was all mocked up) and then get fed pictures. They're also given the '7s' (a set of supposed implants, and for the life of me, I don't know which; I don't know if Hubbard does, either. He does not further describe it in OT 3). 'C.C.' is the clearing course, the courses Scientologist have to finish before they are allowed to do the OT's. It strikes me as rather funny that Hubbard says they were fed OT 2 as well: something is coming full circle here. I think it helps Scientologist to relate to these poor imprisoned inoperate thetans: after all, it means they're at the same point in their studies. After they're fed OT 2, it's movie-time again. Thirty six days, no less! Then they're transported again and delivered at the volcanos.
What strikes me as odd, is that in the description of Incident II itself the thetans get to be implanted before they encounter this pilot who says it's all mocked up; but during this implant, they are "implanted up to 'the pilot'". Mirrors in mirrors here... The gist of the implanting, as per Hubbard, are pictures of theaters, trains, helicopters, and modern British life. Pictures of God and the devil are part of it, Hubbard says here. This of course is a statement highly objectionable to those who adhere to Christianity. Elsewhere Hubbard happens to mention that Christ was part of the implant too.
'R6' is short for the 'reactive mind', i.e. the whole of the implant during OT 3. The 'reactive mind' is also being referred to as 'bank' (short for: memory bank).
Hubbard repeatedly states that this is all 'fact'. Fact, not fiction. But he obviously chose to ignore a few harder facts, and his story is in flagrant contradiction with, for instance, geology. In Jon Atack's words:OT 3 is of course in substantial disagreement with conventional geology. Geologists hold that almost all of the volcanoes listed by Hubbard and both Hawaii and Los Palmas came into being far more recently than 75 million years ago. On a simple point of logic, it seems strange that none of these volcanoes was damaged by the explosion of the hydrogen bombs.One of these scientific refutations may be found on my homepage: Peter Fordes Scientific Scrutiny of OT 3. Hubbard's 'facts' flunk on astrophysics: our universe is much younger that he believes it to be. So be well advised and take Hubbard's story as fiction rather than fact.
There's another confusing paragraph:
His name was Xenu. He used renegades. Various misleading data by means of circuits etc. was placed in the implants.(p. 76) Ahhh, here we have the first occurence of the name of the Beast, sometimes also referred to as 'the Dark Prince': Xenu. The name 'Xenu' is shunned by most Scientologist: they will not speak it, and try to prevent others from reading it. (There's this one guy on a.r.s. who carefully edits 'Xenu' out of the name of Steven Fishman's account any time he replies to Fishman: he changes it into firstname.lastname@example.org instead. Rather funny, in fact.) Or Scientologists will pretend they've never heard of Xenu, in adherence with their belief that OT 3 is very secret and must not revealed to or be discussed with anybody whatsoever.
So Xenu availed himself of renegades to carry out his devillish plot. But renegades of what? Xenu was the leader of the Galactic Federation, according to Ron, wasn't he? So if they were renegades, you would hardly expect them to plot with Xenu, but rather against, wouldn't you? It doesn't make sense. Even fiction needs a coherent plot and should not mess up details.
The next sentence deals with the content of the 'implants'. According to Hubbard, implants are 'false memories', a kind of post-hypnotic suggestion. Here he describes them as 'misleading data'. Hubbard explains that Xenu and his renegades used 'circuits' to place this misleading data in the populace. It's a shame he doesn't give more details. He was a sci-fi writer, wasn't he? So surely he should have been able to come up with something. Now I can't help but think of this movie of Johnnie Mnemonic and hismemory bank...
When through with his crime loyal officers (to the people) captured him after six years of battle and put him in an electronic mountain trap where he still is. "They" are gone. The place (Confederation) has since been a desert. The length and brutality of it all was such that this Confederation never recovered. The implant is calculated to kill (by pneumonia etc) anyone who attempts to solve it. This liability has been dispensed with by my tech development.(p. 76) Loyal officers - that is: loyal to the people, but I think that from Xenu's point of view we would have the real renegades here, considering what's up next - some officers captured Xenu after his frightful misdeeds. It was not an easy catch: it took six years of battle. These officers then proceeded by caging Xenu in and trapping him in a mountain on one of the Federation's planets. Hubbard believes that Xenu is still there, supposedly alive. According to Hubbard, the place where all this happened has suffered severly and is still bare.
Hubbard turns to the implant now. It is allegedly deadly: 'calculated to kill (by pneumonia etc)', but he quickly ensures his readers that he himself has developed the tech to deal with that, and render the implant harmless.
One can freewheel through the implant and die unless it is approached as precisely outlined. The "freewheel" (auto-running on and on) lasts too long, denies sleep etc and one dies. So be careful to do only Incidents I and II as given and not plow around and fail to complete one thetan at a time.(p. 76-77) Now it's becoming complicated. Untill now, this was just a nice sci-fi story starring evil princes, but now we'll get entangled in Scieno-speak: lots of lingo to come. Hubbard here explains his followers how to deal with the implants placed in us in Incident I and II. Remember, Scientologists 'run' things. They 'run' a routine, for instance, or a procedure. 'Running' means: going over a memory or following an auditing procedure. You can also 'overrun' something, meaning that you take a routine or prcedure beyond the end of an auditing process. To put it simply, when you 'overrun' something, you didn't stop in time. I take it that 'auto-running' is meant to denote that a procedure or routine takes off by itself, and just goes 'on and on'. 'Freewheeling' must be akin to running in circles at perpetuum. Hubbard believes that it will kill a person.
But what about this: 'fail to complete one thetan at a time'. I take it that that's a body thetan. But how do you 'take' them? I think I need help on this. Jon?On OT 3, the individual finds "body thetans" by locating any sensation of pressure or mass in his or her body. This is addressed "telepathically" as a cluster, and taken through the cluster-making incident of 75 million years ago. Once this is done, the individual body thetans should be available to be taken through either the same incident or through incident one. (...) According to OT 3, everyone on Earth is in fact a collection of such clusters (Hubbard says that each person doing OT 3 will find "hundreds" of body thetans - many victims of this course believe that they find millions).Thanks, Jon. So one needs to take all one's body thetans through one of these Incidents, one by one. Sounds like a lot of work indeed.In December 1967 I knew someone had to take the plunge. I did and emerged very knocked out, but alive. Probably the only one ever to do so in 75,000,000 years. I have all the data now, but only that given here is needful.(p. 77) Oh-wee! Hubbard dived straight into the implant! The first one to do so in 75 million years! Such a shame that he does not give 'all the data' but holds back on us. Now he's dead and we'll never know all the details of his space soap opera. Oh well. Star Wars is still being televised. At least Hubbard had the grace to explain about these body thetans of his:
One's body is a mass of individual thetans stuck to oneself or to the body.(p. 77) So we are made up of this 'mass of individual thetans' that are stuck to us. Yuk. And they can form clusters too! "A cluster is a group of body thetans crushed or hold together by some mutual bad experience," that's what I read somewhere. I bet the mutual bad experience is either Incident I or Incident II.One has to clean them off by running incident II and Incident I. It is a long job, requiring care, patience and good auditing. You are running beings. They respond like any preclear. Some large, some small.(p. 77) See? I was right. But 'running beings'? I guess it's following processes not unlike those the pre-clear use when they're 'running an engram', the difference being that they now 'run body thetans'. And the body thetans behave like pre-clears. Hmm, do they have to hand in stats too?Thetans believed they were one. This is the primary error. Good luck.(p. 77). 'Primary error', sounds like 'primary sin'. And these Scientologist believe all that? Wow. And gee, thanks for the good wishes. I think that the Scientologist who has just started on OT 3 and has just read all this, could use them. Quite a few of them took a real fright, I've gathered. And what exactly happens to the body thetan when you get rid of it? Does it jump on somebody else? No, they don't, Hubbbard says. It's explaned a bit further in the text.Body Thetans are just Thetans. When you get rid of one he goes off and possibly squares around, picks up a body or admires daisies. He is in fact a sort of cleared Being. He cannot fail to eventually, if not at once, regain many abilities. Many have been asleep for the last 75,000,000 years. A Body Thetan responds to any process any Thetan responds to.(p. 78) Many body thetans 'have been asleep for the last 75 million years'? They sure outdo Sleeping Beauty! And when the Scientologist has rid himself of one of these body thetans, the little thingies may pick up a body of their own. They even like daisies! Where's all the sci-fi gone, I wonder, and the horror?
So what the Scientologist needs to do, is audit all these body thetans, that is: lead them through Incident II, and perhaps I. Then they'll be off. Every body thetan has to be processed individually. I couldn't find a reference as to their numbers. There might be hundreds; could be more, could be less. If you find none, Hubbard says, one needs to go back to some basic courses and perhaps file for a 'Review', that is, a serious talk with one's supervisor, because finding no body thetans is out of the question.
In a chapter called 'The Basic on BT's', Hubbard goes on to explain that body thetans tend to stick together. They form 'clusters' by collision; they keep a picture of this collision, and, in turn, this picture attracts yet other body thetans. (I remember this fairy tale in which a boy with a swan starred; everybody wanted to touch the swan, but once they had, they couldn't get loose. After the first person got stuck, someone tried to pull him loose. He in urn got stuck as well. And the next. And the next. Hubbard's story reminds me of this tale.) Hubbard then goes in a complicated spin, explaining how the collision and the picture of the collision conflate:Thus we get the concept of a "black theta body". This would be actual BT's stuck to a thetan plus pictures of BT's stuck to a thetan.(p. 81) The solution to this tangled web of stuck body thetans and pictures of stucked body thetans stuck to thetans, is to try and trace the first incident or 'picture' of such a collision or contact, and work from there.
What one has to do is break up the cluster. Clusters are usually derived from Incident II (one is never sure though; they might date back to Incident I). In the real big clusters that are formed in Incident II, these clusters even have hierarchies within the partaking body thetans:Incident II sometimes forms gigantic clusters. In such there is a leader, an alternate leader and several (eight to eighteen) more.(p. 83) There is alas no reference to the function of this leadership and alternate leadership. Perhaps it's just for the heck of it; after al, they're nasty implanted little bastards. I t is even quite common to find that there are clusters made up out of clusters:In doing a cluster one is likely to find it is made up of other earlier clusters.(p. 90) So how does one break up a cluster? Take 'em through Incident II and then they'll losen up, so that you can address the individual body thetans. As I said before, a lot of work to do here.
Another complication is that it will sometimes only appear as if a body thetan isn't gone, but he fooled ya. He is gone indeed. He just left a trace of himself, and what you are trying to audit away is not the thingie itself:Thetans in the body may obsessively copy the pictures of other thetans. Therefore you can find it seems that the thetan who just left is still there because there is a picture left.(p. 85) While this may be a nasty trick, there's worse that you may encounter:Some Body Thetans are suppressive. A suppressive is out of valence in R6. He is in valence in Incident I almost always.(p. 78) Suppressive body thetans! Wouldn't you know. Hubbard sees suppressives everywhere. What do you want to do with them? Send them to Ethics? Expel tem from Scientology? Fair game them?
But what is a suppressive body thetan? In Scieno-speak, 'valence' is an adopted personality; 'being out of valence' therefore means behaving as if you're someone else; imposturing, so to say. So when Hubbard says that a body thetan is 'out of valence' in 'R6' - R6 being the Incident II implant - I guess what he means is that this particular body thetans pretend to be linked with the bombing, while in fact they're linked with the cherubs and the Snap Story. The little pranksters!
According to Hubbard, when one manages to rid oneself of all body thetans, one will be able to "accomplish full stable exteriorization" with full perception, that is: get out of your body and move at will through the universe. As L. Ron Hubbard puts it:
"OT III is a vital grade. One fronts up to it and does it. When he is really done, the rewards of OT III and IV exceed his wildest dreams."(p. 93). For me, I think it's not wild at all. Wildly mad, at best.

For completion's sake, and because my grasp of such an ephemere subject as that of body thetans is quite flimsy (and I intend to keep it that way) I further include an exerpt from a book written by Geoffrey Filbert, Excalibur Revisted that deals with OT 3 as well. Filbert goes on at length about the body thetans and the pocedures one should apply on them.
Excalibur Revisted was published in electronic form, and Mr Filbert has given it to the public domain in the fall of 1994. It is, amongst others, available via America Online and has been since December 1994. The material is in fact copyright by Filbert; he recieved his copyright registration on April 25, 1982. Scientology recieved their first copyright filings for their OT 3 material on May 12, 1982... So I guess Filbert predates them. These are pages 266 - 268.
OT III1. Check for any BTs (E-meter, theta perceptics, intention, pressure areas, telepathy is HOW) on and in:
2. Run Incident 2, then Incident 1, until BT(s) have gone and are released. Then, check for additional Incidents 1's and 2's until dry (on the meter).
- Body surface (WHERE)
- Body inside
- In thetan's space (Approx. 40' X 60')
- On thetan
3. Return to Step 2, to find new ones to run. Use ruds while running if necessary. There is an effort to stop and hurry on Incident 1.
4. When complete, exact date and run both of the incidents on self.
5. If a bog, do Millazo Pack. Write down some 'mutual associations'. Re each one on this list, FIND THE INCIDENT THAT MADE THEM ONE, and run that. Then, run OT III, Incident 2 and 1 after that cluster is broken up. Occasionally, BTs will have an incident that made them one other then Incident 2, thus this action.
INCIDENT 2: Dates approx. 75 million years ago, earth years, location, Earth, named TEEGEEACK at that time (meaning planet of sorrow), involved 33 planets of this sector, each with populations of 80 - 200 BILLION PER PLANET. XENU, the ruler, and 'Renegades' decided to solve overpopulation as follows, but was halted and XENU placed in a mountain trap after over 5 years of war.
Incident 2 Patter: DETERMINE IF A LOYAL OFFICER, RESIDENT OF EARTH, or FROM ANOTHER PLANET. If the latter two, start at their being picked up and shot and if from another planet, frozen in an ice cube, transported (flying saucer), taken to mountain, a volcano always, H BOMB EXPLOSION, TERRIFIC WINDS, EFFORT TO ORIENT, MAGNETIC STRIP UP FROM CENTER OF VOLCANO OR DOWN FROM AN AIRPLANE, EFFORT TO GET OFF AND FIND REST OF SELF, PROTEST, BEING PULLED ON STRIP, VISUAL DISPLAY OF INSTRUCTION BY A 'GO TO THE PILOT', WHO SAYS 'HE'S MOCKING IT UP'. There are 26 - 29 days of implanting (the CC and OT II, God and Devil material, reasons for this being done, helicopters, etc.) that need not be run. SOME WERE PACKAGED INTO CLUSTERS in the HAWAII and LOS PALMAS ISLANDS (8 to a cluster). If a loyal officer, the sequence is SURPRISE at being shot, placed at the volcano. Use meter to determine and determine volcano. Watch for earlier beginning (pulled in for a tax audit), run only up to the 'HE'S MOCKING IT UP' as BTs can go into 'free fall', spin and get sick from the 29 days implanting, with pneumonia and death the implanted phenomena of free fall in addition to insomnia. Coltus, the Reigning planet, Hubbard a part of the 'rescuing force that put an end to it'. Don't force or push them off, and answer the BTs questions. There were probably not any good or bad guys in this incident, although Hubbard insists the sector to have been a cultural desert since. Very SP BTs can usually be brought around with adept 2WC, Charm, Ruds, but if not use Power Processing on the rare hard core.
Incident 1: Dates 4 QUADRILLION YEARS AGO (which is 15 zeros or 4,000 trillion years ago).
Incident 1 Patter: LOUD SNAP, WAVES OF LIGHT, HORSES DRAWING CHARIOT RIGHT TO LEFT, CHERUB COMES OUT, BLOWS HORN, COMES CLOSE, SHATTERING SERIES OF SNAPS, CHERUB FADES, RETREATS, BLACK MASS IS DUMPED ON THE THETAN.

You clear up that a BT is a body thetan, The instructions are self explanatory, Basically, the reason they are doing this is to where they won't be confused with hundreds of different thoughts so that they can have some peace and quiet, and so they won't be other-determined. After they have run all these remnants of folks out by telepathic auditing on them, they attain the state of freedom from overwhelm and a return of full self determinism. One cleans off those 4 areas in the order listed. It is generally underrun, it is rarely overrun, What you have been doing all the way up the Bridge is breaking these clusters apart. With Expanded Dianetics, Grades and all the previous auditing, you have been taking these off. About 1/2 of the BTs come off and leave and go live their own lives by doing the lower Bridge right, and the other 1/2 come off here by doing OT III correctly. So, if you don't do the lower Bridge correctly on someone and they do a real good job on OT III, they will get about 1/2 of it done. It is pretty wild material to run and the gains of it are beyond description. It is not a crazy idea at all. The irony of it is that it happened alot more than once. It is listed as an event that happened 75 million years ago. It probably happened to the preclear dozens of times. So, watch out for your dates.
After that you do not do OT VII, and then put them on OT III again, like the churches do. You do OT IV which is included here. After they have done that they have attained the state of certainty of self as a being and freedom from uncertainty of self.
On OT V they attain the state of freedom from fixated introversion into MEST and gain the ability to refamiliarize as a thetan exterior with the physical universe.
Exterior - OT IV List of Volcanos There were two zones of assembly after the thetan was implanted. Thetans of volcanos in Asia and the Pacific were (0097) taken to Hawaii. Thetans of Atlantic areas were taken to Las Palmas. Asia and Pacific North Japan Mt.

LOUD SNAP WAVES OF LIGHT (0099) CHARIOT COMES OUT, TURNS RIGHT AND LEFT CHERUB COMES OUT BLOWS HORN, COMES CLOSE SHATTERING SERIES OF SNAPS CHERUB FADES BACK (RETREATS) BLACKNESS DUMPED ON THETAN Effort to stop must be gotten off (sometimes to hurry). Run as an engram. (0100) OT IV RUNDOWN Non-Solo OT IV Rundown Symptoms Has completed OT III OT IV Warning. This is in fact a grade. Therefore to run it without setting the case up fully is to waste it. Often the case has to: (1) Be discharged with a lot of corrective actions and (2) OT ill must be run on the PC by the auditor or at least cleaned up. It might not be uncommon to have to do half or more of the C/Ses in the book before doing the OT IV Rundown. If one holds off and really flies the case, then the person (0101) winds up at OT Exterior very nicely when one does OT IV. If you do OT IV and he's still in his head, all is not lost, you have other actions you can take. Clusters, Prep-Checks, failed to exteriorise directions. OT V and VI are designed for someone already exterior. If a person doesn't go exterior after OT IV Rundown you set him up for V by then seeing he jolly well does go exterior before going on to V. __________________________________________ OT IV Rundown Done only by an Auditor on a Case fully set up by various Directions. (0102) 2 April 1978 OT IV SOLO The end phenomenon of OT IV is "Certainty of Self as a Being". The thing that would make a Being uncertain is the possibility of future implants. OT iv Solo is designed to "proof up a Being" against any possibility of being re-implanted now that he/she has finished running implants with the completion of OT The main idea on OT IV Solo is to mock-up (create) each line of the Cle aring Course (7's, The Basic End Words, The Confusion GPM, Objects-Hollow, Objects-Solid) with all the perceptics, force, impact, and unconsciousness of the original implant (as much as you are able). When the line is mocked up (created or recreated), then unmock it, cease creating it, and blow the charge you have recreated or mocked up. Do this repetitively with each line of the Clearing Course (including lights) to a floating needle on each line. Continue until you feel totally free with and at cause over this implant sequence; (you may or may not need to complete all 5 parts). Do it until you can freely and easily mock-up and blow this implant and can confront implants. Lastly, scan out all of your auditing early to late adding up all the hours in session as you go along. (103) Come up with a total number of auditing hours for yourself. Find and run a havingness process. Attest to OT IV (1) Rudiments or GF (Green Form) to FIN. (2) Rehab Drugs. (3) Valence Shifter. "What valence would be safe?" (4) Rehab ARC Straight Wire to Grade IV. (5) Rehab R6EW - OT II. (6) Prepcheck OT Ill. (7) Rehab OT V &.VI. (8) Run "What has been Overrun?" (9) Run "What can you confront?" (IF THE PRE OT DOES NOT EXTERIORIZE, WE WILL DO 7 CASES NEXT SESSION AND HANDLE UNTIL HE DOES GO EXTERIOR which is really the end phenomena of OT IV Audited only by a Class VIII.) (0104) OT V CAUSE OVER MEST Gain Freedom from Fixated Introversion into MEST For eons, man has speculated and guessed about the nature of the Physical Universe. There have been many opinions and much discussion. Even the modern physicist, with his many names and labels, is still in the dark when it comes to how it got here and why. Before Scientology, the exact truth about the MEST Universe was lost, and the way out of the trap unknown. Lies and misinformation had taken the place of the truth. In 1967, L. Ron Hubbard released Section V of the Operating Thetan Course, the most powerful level released up to that time. On OT V you learn the truth about the Physical Universe, not the laws of physical scientists, but the basic considerations about Matter, Energy, Space and Time. The tremendous power that this universe -seems to have over thetans resulting in entrapment, degradation and death, is traced to its (0105) source. As you exteriorize from the Physical Universe at Section V. you discover exactly what MEST is, and become free of its laws. At OT V, a Being is re-familiarized as a thetan exterior with the Physical Universe. OT drills are done to remarkably increase a Being's ability to communicate with his environment. He is now able to do so, totally free of the mind and body, and free from a fixated introversion into MEST. Solo auditing on this level serves as an introduction to the rehabilitation of his total abilities as a thetan. He learns to -use his new abilities Is a thetan with wisdom and judgment. OT V Pre OT is to lie down in a comfortable position with eyes shut. (1) Spot a spot in the room. (2) Spot a spot in your body. Alternate 1 and 2 until commands are flat then, (3) Spot two spots in your body. (4) Spot two spots outside. Alternate 3 and 4 until flat then, (0106) (5) Spot a spot outside. (6) Spot a spot on the sun. (Notice the distance between.) (7) Spot two spots outside. (8) Spot two spots on the sun. (Notice what happens.) The pre OT may exteriorize during these drills but doesn't necessarily have to. While still inside with eyes shut in a comfortable position the pre-OT is to follow the following commands and write down any major cognitions. (9) Spot an object in the-room. (10) Spot an object outside. (11) Locate a moving object. (12) Locate a spot in your body. (13) Spot a motion. (14) Locate a space. (15) Spot a Thetan. Continue the above steps until major cognition, very good (0107) indicators or exteriorization occurs. The following steps are done outside. The pre OT takes a paper and pencil with him to take notes. 1. The pre-OT is to put his attention on an object that is ahead of him like a parked car, lamp post, etc. and walk towards it noticing the distance between him and it. He is to continue to do this until cognition. 2. Next the pre-OT is to again pick out an object ahead of him and wrap in energy beam around it and himself and pull himself toward the object with shortening of the beam. Notice what happens. 3. Locate an object, draw energy from it into you. Repeat at least ten times. Note any cognitions. 4. Locate an object as above and walk toward it. Notice what is holding you to it. 5. Notice a cloud and notice the space between you and it. (0108) 6. Notice your body. 7. Notice the motion of the earth and your relationship to it. 8. Notice something about 10 people. Do all the above steps to a cognition. Note: Originally it was not necessary to be exteriorized in order to do OT V or VI 6. Recently however, it has been changed and the state of exteriorization is supposed to be achieved by OT 4 thereby leaving OT V and VI to be done while exterior. END OF OT V (0109) OT VI Each of the following processes are run to a (1) Floating needle (2) Major cognition (3) Regained ability. (Preferably all three together as the ideal end. End Phenomena.) Be Three feet in back of your head. Whatever you are looking at, copy it a dozen times, put it into you. Find the two back corners of the room and hold onto them without thinking for two minutes. Find two corners of the planet Earth, hold onto them for two minutes. Find a place where you are not. Spot three spots in your body. Spot three spots in the room. Be in the following places: The room, the sky, the moon, the sun. Locate an animal .. postulate him moving from one spot to another. Observe him doing this. (0110) Find a walking man ... postulate his walking faster. Do this with 20 people. Find a walking person .. postulate that he will stop, then continue walking. Do this 20 times. Find a person in a distant land. Notice the time of day. Notice the terrain. Notice the general environment. Smell the air. Locate a thought that is his. Locate a thought that is yours. Continue until flat. 'Notice differences between you and your body. Create in your body a feeling of calmness; create in your body sexual desire and turn it off. Continue that step until you feel you have control over the sexual drives. Create in the body a feeling of pain. Create in the body a feeling of serenity. Do the above until flat. Create in the body a feeling of hunger and turn it off. Continue this step until you are in control of hunger drives. The end result of these particular drills is the regained ability to control the body and its sensations. Now: Postulate Anger, boredom, grief, cheerfulness and serenity - -- in that order. This is continued until you are sure that you can create any emotion. (0111) Finally, exteriorized visit a friend who lives in another state. Greet him and flow affinity to him. Ask him to communicate to you by letter. End of OT VI (0112) OT VII RUNDOWN June 1979 Revision 1. Basic Processes Set-up. OT7-1 What are you willing to cause?

TISHKOFF LEWIS, DIAMATO, BRISBOIS BISGAARD 221 North Ficlueroa Street, Suite 1200 Los Angeles, California 90012 (213) 250-1800 Attorneys for Defendant, UWE GEERTZ, Ph.D- UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT CENTRAL DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA CHURCH OF SCIENTOLOGY CASE NO. 91-6426 HLH (Tx) INTERNATIONAL, VERIFIED JOINT PRELIMINARY Plaintiff, NOTICE OF MOTION BY DEFENDANTS STEVEN FISHMAN AND UWE GEERTZ FOR RECONSIDERATION OF THIS COURT'S MARCH 22, 1993 ORDER TRANSFERRING THE VENUE OF THIS VS. CASE TO U.S.D.C., SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF FLORIDA AND MOTION FOR RELIEF FROM THAT SAME ORDER PURSUANT TO F.R.CIV.P. 60 STEVEN FISHMAN and UWE GEERTZ, Date: April 26, 1993 Time: 10:00 a.m. Defendants. Place: Courtroom 7 PRELIMINARY NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that defendants Steven Fishman and Uwe Geertz will shortly be filing a joint notice of notion and motion for reconsideration of this court's March 22, 1993 order to transfer the venue of this case to the United States (0134) District Court for the Southern District of Florida (pursuant t Local Rule 7.16) and a motion for relief from that same order pursuant to Rule 60 of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure. THE PURPOSE OF THIS PRELIMINARY NOTICE OF MOTIONS IS TO AVOID ANY FURTHER INCONVENIENCE OR EXPENSE ON THE COURTS PART WITS REGARD TO THE TRANSFER OF THE FILE PENDING THE FILING AND REARING OF SAID MOTIONS FOR RECONSIDERATION AND F.R.CIV.P. RULE 60 RELIEF. DEFENDANTS GEERTZ AND PIS EXPECT TO FILE THEIR JOINT MOTION BY MONDAY, APRIL S. 1993. THIS DELAY IS OCCASIONED BY FISHMAN, GEERTZ AND GEERTZ'S COUNSEL GRAHM E. BERRY, BEING ENGAGED FROM MARCH 15 TO APPROXIMATELY MARCH26 IN VARIOUS DEPOSITIONS, FROM DAY TO DAY, IN FORT LAUDERDALE, FLORIDA, INCLUDING THE DEPOSITIONS OF DR. GEERTZ AND MR. FISHMAN. This motion will be made, inter alia, on the following grounds: A. AS TO DEFENDANT FISHMAN: Prior to the March 22, 1993 hearing on his motion for change of venue: 1. Mr. Fishman mistakenly thought that IRS officials, (Messrs. Tronscoso and Kroggel) from Tampa, Florida could be compelled to attend the trial of this matter in Miami, Florida and that they could be compelled to testify about ongoing government investigations; 2. Mr. Fishman mistakenly thought that Detective Angelo could be compelled to attend trial in Miami, give testimony about an ongoing police investigation and Mr. Fishman also did not realize that statements by Detective Angelo regarding what Fishman told Detective Angelo about Scientology would be hearsay; 3. With regard to "certain hostile witnesses who are staff (0135) members of the Church of Scientology": (a) Mr. Fishman had not realized that these persons would have to be subpoenaed for depositions, deposed, subpoenaed for trial and paid witness fees, all at an impossible expense to himself; (b) Mr. Fishman had inadvertently forgotten that these witnesses would have been subjected to Scientology's TR-L (training routine-lying) , witness training program ("hatting the witness") and security procedures - all to subvert the truth and so render their testimony futile to the standpoint of Mr Fishman's defense; 4. Mr. Fishman had mistakenly and inadvertently failed to realize that the witnesses he really needs in this case are largely ex-Scientologists -- most of whom are more readily available to testify at trial in Los Angeles; 5. Fishman had mistakenly filed his motion for change of venue after reviewing his file and noticing that defendant Geertz once had filed the same motion, and without knowing that defendant Geertz had subsequently made a determination that the case was better venued in Los Angeles for an assortment of different reasons. 6. Mr. Fishman had mistakenly and inadvertently failed to consider the logistical problems he faced in trying his case in Miami without the support services of Lewis, D'Amato, Brisbois & Bisgaard being available with regard to the dozens of boxes of documents that will be introduced into evidence in his case. 7. Mr. Fishman had not received Lewis, D'Amato's offers to: (a) provide him with law library, support and office services during the trial in Los Angeles; (b) provide him with accommodations, air transportation and a per them for food costs during trial in Los Angeles and to the (0136) extent plaintiff Scientology failed to do so; (c) pay for the travel and accommodation of Marjorie Wakefield to testify at trial in Los Angeles; (d) take videotaped depositions of so many of the so- called "Scientology hostile witnesses" in Fort Lauderdale and Miami who could be subpoenad for deposition; (e) use their best efforts to find Mr. Fishman a pro bono trial counsel for a trial in Los Angeles; (f) file a motion for summary judgment in Los Angeles, in which Mr. Fishman would join; and (g) transport his over 50 boxes of evidence to Los Angeles and store it for him there pending trial and for six months thereafter. 8. Mr. Fishman had not developed the close working relationship he now has with Graham E. Berry of Lewis D'Amato as a result of the Steven Fishman, Jack Fishman, Jamie Lee Nuryev, Keith Nosetta and Dr. Geertz depositions now being conducted in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. 9. Mr. Fishman had not realized that the granting of his motion for change of venue may adversely affect Dr. Geertz's representation by the Lewis D'Amato firm and threaten the informal assistance now being received by him from the Lewis, D'Amato firm including but not limited to receiving copies of all deposition transcripts, discovery propounded and received that he had not hitherto been able to afford himself and that plaintiff had been unwilling to provide him. (0137) B. AS TO DEFENDANT GEERTZ: 10. The defense of defendant Dr. Geertz was "stayed" by his bankruptcy petition until only days before the February 22, 1993 hearing on Fishman's motions. [Scientology has since moved to reconsider the bankruptcy court's exemption of Dr. Geertz from personal liability when it partially lifted the stay.) 11. Mark Augustine was originally responsible for handling this matter on behalf of Lewis, D'Amato. During the pendency of the automatic stay Mark Augustine resigned from the Lewis D'Amato firm and was replaced on this matter by Graham Berry. 12. Only hours after the February 22, 1993 continuance of Fishman's motion, and this court orders that Fishman submit declarations as to the change of venue, Graham Berry was admitted to Cedar Sinai Hospital on an emergency basis. During his hospitalization and recuperation, Mr. Fishman served a new motion for change of venue (by Federal Express and not first class mail on Lewis, D'Amato). Due to either mistake or inadvertence, either Judith Tishkoff, Esq. or her paralegal, failed to ensure that Graham Berry saw the new motion and failed to ensure that the date for new opposition papers was properly calendared. Accordingly, at the March 22, 1993 hearing on Fishman's motion for change of venue, Graham Berry was not aware that Mr. Fishman had filed new motion papers now supported by the declaration the court had previously ordered. 13. Defendant Geertz selected the Lewis, D'Amato law firm as his counsel partly because of its considerable experience in handling Scientology litigation. Over $100,000 has been expended on this defense to date. Transfer of the case to Florida would mean (0138) either: (a) the appointment of replacement counsel at enormous cost and expense and the loss of Lewis, D'Amato's general expertise and acquired knowledge in this case, or (b) the appointment of unnecessarily expensive and duplicative Miami co-counsel. 14. If defendant Geertz's counsel (Lewis, D'Amato) has to try this case in Miami instead of Los Angeles: (a) over 80 boxes of documents in this case will have to be transported and accommodated in Miami; (b) selected boxes of documents from over 200 boxes of documents acquired from other Scientology cases will have to be transported and accommodated in Miami; (c) document handling and logistical support services would have to be specially hired in Miami; (d) The cost of trying this case will vastly exceed the $300,000 already projected because of the travel and accommodation costs that will be incurred by the attorneys and staff in contrast to merely transporting and accommodating Messrs. Fishman, Geertz and certain witnesses in Los Angeles. C. PLAINTIFF CHURCH OF SCIENTOLOGY INTERNATIONAL As to plaintiff Church of Scientology International, it would be argued that it opposed Fishman's motion for change of venue now sought to be set aside.

The ONLY way a thetan ever gets in trouble, the ONLY way he can get trapped or become part of a cluster is by mocking-up and inaking pictures of bad experiences. And why record all bad experiences? This too is not good sense. one can explain it by a yearning for eventi by havingness and other ways, but these do not factually lead to a total solution. The real reason stems from a characteristic of a thetan. He never totally gives up. There is, seemingly, a streak of resistance or resentment that makes a thetan wish to persist in the same place. If he cannot, (0124) he will do so covertly. All power comes from the ability to occupy a point. The base that separates two terminals must be firm or there will be no exchange of energy. The effort to weaken a thetan is to make him relinquish his point In space. covertly or overtly a thetan seeks to assert his position in space. If he cannot do so overtly he does so covertly. When a thetan is moved unwillingly from a point or position, he even then refuses to give up that point, but MOCKS IT UP. He also mocks up the events of his departure as a part of the action of mocking up the point he is leaving. This, unwittingly, gives him a picture, an engram. Now let us see if this theory holds true in practice. A. Just ahead of any engram there must be an effort to retain a position and there must be a point or location being mocked up. This is true. You can blow an engram without running it by spotting its first point in space and time. In a secondary, "Where did you first hear of the loss" is a vital question. (0125) B. In a Contact Assist getting a person to touch again the point where he was hurt with what was hurt will blow the engram. C. Getting a person to locate areas (locations) that are not safe produces blows of engrams without running them. D. Exact and accurate dating sometimes blows an engram. Those times when it does not, it should blow when the location is exactly spotted. E. Implants and traps were done mainly to keep thetans out of an area. The thetan, resenting and resisting mocks up the place anyway and so implants himself. _____________________________ A thetan too easily substitutes a mock-up for a point in the real universe. one could also say that a thetan, by mocking up, warns himself against certain points in space or areas in the Physical Universe. Anxiety is solely not being able to be in certain places and not where one is either. making people leave is the most unpopular action unless one also frees them to be anywhere. Transferring people is a degrading thing to do to them. (0126) Jail denies a thetan all spaces except where he has been placed and note that thetans are made very miserable in Jail. Jailing is a sure way to confirm criminals and also to make them crazy as well. Any thetan, stuck in an engram, is asserting the effort to be at the point where he was hit at the beginning of that engram. An engram therefore is a refusal to leave a place at which force was exerted to drive one away. Reversely, one can refuse to be held at a place where one does not wish to bt, but this is a negation of a place, a not-is of it and its time. Power of choice over where one is and where one is not is thus a key to engrams. Finally - a thetan mocks up because he covertly refuses to abandon a location under duress and not-ises the place where he does not wish to be but must. Using these facts one can blow engrams without running them. Some sample questions: What point (location) is unsafe? (0127) What location could you have held absolutely? Where did you first get an intimation of danger? What place would you rather not be in? What effort would it take to hold (that) (a) locatation? Working with this you will see a door open to a higher level than Dianetic R3R. But realize that it is only for a high level thetan. This is the road to returned personal power in the Physical Universe. L. RON HUBBARD Founder LRH:rs Copyright (c) 1969 By L. Ron Hubbard ALL RIGHTS RESERVED (0128) HUBBARD COMMUNICATIONS OFFICE Saint Hill Manor. East Grinstead, Sussex HCO BULLETIN OF 5 MAY 1980 LIMITED DISTRIBUTION ISSUE I OT VIII Course Students OT OT VIII Auditors OT VIII CIS*s AO Review Auditors AO C/Ses OT VIII Series I C O N F I D E N T I A L STUDENT BRIEFING By the time you read this I will no longer be occupying the body and identity that you have known as Ron. That identity continues to live in the hearts and minds of many as well as in on-Source tech and admin centers around the planet, and will inspire for years to come Scientologists and lovers of truth every-where. What follows is a story that has been withheld, for reasons which will soon be obvious, until such time as there were enough OTs that something could be done about it. That time Is now. It is not a nice or a pretty story. but I trust that having arrived on the OT VIII Course you are ready to hear it. You have undoubtedly heard pieces of data over the years that hinted at the greater untold reality of my mission here on Earth. but the story was never written, nor spoken. in its entirety due to security problems that have unfortunately always plagued the organization. It is only now that I feel it safe to release the information, although the time is rapidly approaching when I will have no choice in the matter, the hour draws that near. I an not going to delve too deeply into specifics as people have a tendency to bog themselves down in significance. which would only serve to delay the immediacy of the task at hand. Therefore I will be brief. Some eighty-odd million years ago Earth time (it actually dates at 78,395,042 but dates are & bit superfluous with this material) plans were drawn by a group outside the MEST universe for the eventual takeover of a good portion of this universe. Not a particularly large nor Imaginative crew, their exterior perspective. however. gives them considerable advantage over tho time-bound beings of the MEST universe. Borrowing from earlier operations such as Helotrobus. they conceived an ongoing implant. some portions of which have been fairly faithfully rendered in parts of the Bible. This implant, laid in by carefully controlled genetic mutation at Incident Two of OT Ill and periodically reinforced by controlled historic events since then, makes it effectively impossible for beings on the more heavily affected planets such as Earth to become free. It causes progressive genetic "evolution" that gives the subject population greater and greater susceptibility to the telepathic impingement and direction of the controllers. In its final stage the progression becomes almost geometric, and it is this final stage that we are rapidly approaching. (0129) Another aspect of this GE-line implant is that the body becomes in effect a sort of thats trap that kicks in heavily on the being should he attempt to expand his horizons beyond that of pure physical universe reality. There can be temporary key-outs which we have all experienced in varying degrees. but until this area is handled it can honestly be said that there is no hope for continued expansion. The good news is that once this is run out. expansion becomes rather effortless and almost automatic. No doubt you are familiar with the Revelations section of the Bible where various events are predicted. Also mentioned Is a brief period of time in which an arch-enemy of Christ. reforred to as the anti-Christ, will reign and his opinions will have sway. All this makes for very fantastic, entertaining reading but there is truth in it. This anti-Christ represents the forces of Lucifer (literally, the "light bearers" or "light bringer"), Lucifer being a mythical representation of the forces of enlightenment, the Galactic Confederacy. My mission could be said to fulfill the Biblical promise represented by this brief anti-Christ period. During this period there is a fleeting opportunity for the whole scenario to be. effectively derailed. which would make it impossible for the mass Marcabian landing (Second Coming) to take place. The Second Coming is designed, among other things, to trigger a rapid series of destructive events. With the exception of the original Buddhism, virtually all religions of any consequence on this planet, mono- and pantheistic alike. have been instruments to speed the progress of this "evolution of consciousness" and bring about the eventual enslavement of mankind. As you know, Siddhartha Gautama never claimed to be anything more than a man. Having caught on to this operation, he postulated his own return as Metteyya, part of which prophecy will have been fulfilled upon the passing of L. Ron Hubbard. For those of you whose Christian toes I may have stepped on. let me take the opportunity to disabuse you of some lovely myths. For instance, the historic Jesus was not nearly the sainted figure has been made out to be. In addition to being a lover of young boys and men. he was given to uncontrollable bursts of temper and hatred that belied the general message of love, understanding and other typical Marcab PR. You have only to look at the history his teachings inspired to see where it all inevitably leads. It Is historic fact and yet man still clings to the ideal. so deep and insidious is the biologic implanting. It Is a good joke that the Calactic Confederacy is associated with the Serpent in the Garden, the beast and other emissaries of the "Prince of Darkness". Yet in certain passages and esoteric interpretations of the Bible (much of which has been taken out and effectively suppressed for centuries) as well as the Cabbalah, the truth reveals itself quite nicely for the clever and the ungullible. So it really is a race against time and one that we happen to be losing at the moment, as the implant drama inexorably plays itself out in spite of the breakneck pace I've managed to keep up these last thirty-five years. I had an inkling, but only that, of the insidiousness of this material as far back as 1945. Later. in charcteristic over-optimism, I thought that R6 would be the end of it. But that was followed by NOTs and the Purification Rundown and still the string continued to unwind with the ball at the end of it just out of sight. It makes ons wonder about such things as fate and destiny, such (0130) was the resolve with which I managed to cling to that string. not often knowing how close I was to falling into the abyss myself. but destiny it merely the rationalization of feeble minds. Things don't just happen, they are caused. And causative beings can undo the plans of madmen and would-be enslavers, no matter how long those plans may have been in the making. I will soon leave this world only to return and complete my mission with another Identity. Although I long to stretch my arms back in repose on some distant star in some distant galaxy. It appears that is one dream that will have to wait. But my return depends on people like you doing these materials thoroughly and completely so that there will be a genetically uncontaminated body for me to pick up and resume where I left off. A body free of religious mania, right/wrong dichotomy and synthetic karma. The job ahead is far too tough to even contemplate doing with your standard -- courtesy of certain other-dimensional players and their Marcab pieces, many of whom are right here In the general populace -- genetically altered body. Without the biogenetic meddling of those who stand outside time (who cannot yet directly influence our world and must work through others) the dwindling spiral is not nearly as automatic and self-perpetuating as it appears. There are regions even in isolated parts of the Milky Way where poets are free to poet and magicians can paint reality with their magic wands and exteriorize without body kickback. But these areas unfortunately are fewer and fewer. I will return not as a religious leader but a political one. That happens to be the requisite beingness for the task at hand. I will not be known to most of you, my activities misunderstood by many, yet along with your constant effort in the theta band I will effectively postpone and then halt a series of events designed to make happy slaves of us all. So there you have it. The secret that I have kept close to my chest all these years. Now you too are part of this secret and I no longer have to shoulder the burden alone or live with the possibility of body death before all the data could be released. And with this briefing I entrust to each of you the responsibility for this material until such time as I an able to return. For we have no help from any other quarter in this matter. The handful of secret societies throughout history that have caught on to this game have long since fallen by the wayside or been taken over and become instruments of the very menace they were set up to combat. The rundown is long and can be arduous, but it must be done thoroughly if there is to be any effect not only on the body of the pre-OT but the body of his or her progeny as wall. There is some danger, but with OT VII thoroughly complete It is not nearly so great as the danger witnessed by assorted unfortunates who happened to stumble into this area in their sleep or in moments of reverie or anaten, experiencing an hitherto mysterious phenomenon known as "spontaneous combustion". CAUTION: DO NOT BE PTS WHILE TRAVERSING THIS THIRD AND FINAL WALL OF FIRE But the area is well charted. the rundown many years in secret development, and by the time you read this undoubtedly completed on myself. The wins awaiting you are like none that you have ever experienced, not just for you. but for your children. your children's children and the whole of mankind, if we succeed. And we will. If we had time we should pity the many poor souls, from (0131) 1950 to PT, who chose such an exactly inopportune moment to drop off the road to truth and disconnect from reality, the full burst and glory of OT practically within their grasp. But we haven't the time to "wax philosophic" or ponder might have beens. The rundown follows. Again I say, do it thoroughly and completely, for it is your ticket to the stars. And beyond! L.
