    Yeah i think so too, i think everyone that started with Hubbard believed they were actually making the world a better place, Miscavige also so he worked as hard as he could to move up and work with Hubbard, then he must have heard Hubbard said "its about making money and not paying taxes" (actual quote) and then Miscavige was like... "ok i can live with that, only if i run the place"

    Evening guys, so i found this little gem on YouTube today, a rare interview from 1966 with the OG Hustler LRH himself, making an introduction to Scientology

    "The futuristic fifth floor is set up to test and improve a Scientologist’s “perceptics.” These are 57 senses that Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard proposed were abilities that the immortal thetan — your true inner self or soul — had once possessed but need to be regained as part of a Scientologist’s exploration of his or her past lives"

    LOL

    Looking over this list of "perceptics," I don't even understand how they qualify as senses:

    Cellular and bacterial position?
    Time track notation?
    Gravitic?
    Motion of Self?

    I'm not even sure what that shit MEANS.

    Thats because you are not even OT8 bro, your Thetan superpowers are not activated because you are not cleared, please present yourself to your nearest Idea org for treatment.

    It's actually kinda smart.

    "Invest in Real Estate."

    "Why?"

    "Because they don't make it anymore."

    Interesting article about the new season.

    http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/fe...rusade-i-want-a-federal-investigation-1027737

    Also, didn't realize but Kevin James' new show "Kevin Can Wait" is killing off his wife, and Leah Remini is getting a full time role for the show

    That's pretty cool that some people who were actively involved with Scientology have gotten out because of the show.

    I wonder exactly how they found the show and decided to watch it? The comment about "going on the Internet" is also interesting. I'm presuming here we're just talking about rank-and-file members who are out in the real world. Do regular Scientology people have Internet access in their homes or is that forbidden?

    That's obviously super fucked up, and yet I'm also not especially surprised.

    Yeah, who knows with the internet thing. Surprised Scientology doesn't provide their own internet network, sign up for only half your monthly wages

    Bill Burr's acting class story is hilarious.
    Short: he needed to take some acting class, got set up by an agent.

    Went to meeting in Beverly Hills, he thinks they're nice but bizarrely enthusiastic.
    He innocently remarks, "It feels like I'm joining a cult, here," to frowns.

    Later had to be told, "Dude these are scientoligists, they're trying to recruit you."

    He told the actor running the meeting not to call again.

    Neither are they, I'm sure. They're literally just making this shit up as they go

    I want to say that a high-up Scientology guy pretty much said exactly this a little while back. He walked in on Miscavige when Miscavige was working on finishing one of the OT tracks. Miscavige was like, "I have no idea how I'm going to finish this" and the guy was like, "Wait, WTF? I thought all this shit was supposed to be handed down from the Ascended Masters!" (or whatever).

    Was just browsing through the thread, and just realized that you spend much of your time in Toronto, is that where you're going to meet with the auditor?

    Yep, im pretty sure this is true, the same happened a a few years back when Miscavige released the "New age of Technology" into the world, basically toppling all the stuff LRH put in place and invalidating everything everyone who originally worked with Hubbard knew, the guy is dug into power like a tick
