Hello , I am an ex Scientologist , this blog is primarily about that but I may address other topics as the mood hits me to . I was in Scientology for 25 years and spent about 10,000 hours using the indoctrination and thought reform method "study tech " . I also spent time on staff and met hundreds of Scientologists and did hundreds of the cult practices . Many were the "ethics cycles and OW writeups " that really are an attempt to suppress or remove a person's identity and replace it with a mental pseudo clone of Ron Hubbard . To make a fanatical slave for the cult .

I looked outside the cult for answers in about January 2014 and left the cult in about March of 2014 . While in about 99% of members have no idea of the truth .

We are told we are in a mental therapy or spiritual enhancement or religion or science for helping people unlock potential . Or any of several other fronts that all pretend kind and humanitarian goals .

The truth is Scientology is a terrorist mind control cult and this blog is my attempt to understand and expose that . And try to state as clearly as possible the tools that I have found helpful in dealing with this .

The Empty Well

I as many know spent 25 years in Scientology and probably ten thousand hours indoctrinated with "study technology" and many other thousands of hours using " ethics technology " . I have been on staff , lived in  Sea Org orgs and met hundreds of Scientologists in person over the decades .

I also in 2014 left Scientology and tried to learn what it really is and does . that is a lot to take on but I have some observations to share . It is a fraud and mind control terrorist cult . It uses covert hypnosis extensively and sublime writing and rhetoric and many elements of mind control and deception from other practices but has no true benefit whatsoever .

In Norse Mythology Odin -the chief and most powerful and wise god -  sacrifices an eye to Mimir's Well a magical well that has tremendous knowledge and wisdom but an eye is needed to use it . Odin sacrifices his eye in the myth and becomes profoundly wise and learns all the magic in the world and the sacrifice is well worth it for what he gains .

in Scientology people often when leaving - including otherwise critical thinkers - claim " Well with all the people who did all the stuff in Scientology there are too many claims of gains to disprove so some must be real so there must be workable or beneficial technology somewhere in that " .

Some go on to say things like: "Take away the 'bad parts' like David Miscavige , Fair Game , the SP doctrine , R2-45 , the Tone Scale , Ethics Tech , Confessionals , the RPF , forced abortions , slavery in the Sea Org , OSA , KSW and on and on and people should be free to believe anything they want to ".

I find that very problematic for several reasons : I have found zero workable technology , lots of persuasion and delusion . Some plagiarism but at best he stole" feel good statements" in other words ideas that FEEL good to think and say and read , stuff like Marcus Aurelius writing about nobility and thought ( Hubbard stole many , many ideas from Aurelius he probably used the Meditations when he needed an inspiring quote to repackage ).

These ideas may not be true but can make temporary appeals to emotion and there by cause acceptance as true and positive feelings . hardly miracles or the secrets of life and the universe . Hubbard uses this what is known as sublime writing which stirs emotions and causes ecstasy - a kind of trance state - to get victims willing to trust and enter a happy euphoric trance state and to get them to accept embedded commands (hidden hypnotic statements relying on repetition and variation to be effective ) which he works in .

He in constructing his fraud did not have to write inspiring and enthralling quotes of his own : he did what some modern "musicians " do now - find what worked on others for this purpose of inspiration and "sample" it . He in his conditions says to use "successful actions "  . He plagiarized  many , many sources - Lao Tzu , Confucius , Marcus Aurelius , and very , very often Crowley and  Hitler . Some to disarm reason others to replace it .

This is unethical influence and not reformable to me  . The middle ground fallacy is always the wrong approach to me . Some exes do to save face for all the years fooled but it is another fallacy - an appeal to emotion pride in this case . It is hard to accept being fooled so much for so long. They need to accept that we can follow and die for beliefs that may be wrong .Many in the Crusades and similar conflicts lived , fought and died for beliefs . All these beliefs are not possibly valid as they contradict each other- so many thousands had to die in vain no matter which faith is true , if any .

I accept wasting twenty five years on lies but for some reason my acceptance and progress are the exception and not the norm .The well we sacrificed to is , was and always will be empty . Sorry - seeing this is vital to facing the truth to me .
