Ex-Scientologist story #129, OT lacks body thetans!

Xenu, all hail Xenu, long may the Scientologists kiss his ass.
 

 Peter Alexander gave more than a million dollars to Scientology during the twenty odd years he spent as a member.  He had reached the upper levels where OTs (operating thetans) are able to perform all manner of marvels.  But there is a catch, first you must locate and remove the spirits of dead aliens that are covering your body like a second skin.  Once you get rid of them,via auditing, you will have your inherent enormous abilities back.  Peter Alexander couldn’t seem to find any, perhaps it was because he was not as nuts as the other Scientologists.

As he progressed to the highest levels of Scientology, Alexander said he was trained to communicate with dead space aliens, called body thetans.

”The fact that I couldn’t find any space aliens started to bother me,” Alexander said in a series of interviews with The Herald. “That kind of broke the bubble.”  Even then, Alexander said it took three years for him to leave Scientology.  He then explained a bit more about the pesky body thetans.

SPIRITUAL PARASITES’

But the process doesn’t stop there. At the higher levels of Scientology, adherents learn they are infested with ”spiritual parasites,” Alexander and other former Scientologists say. To remove them, one must submit to expensive counseling — $20,000 and higher. Scientologists call this level “The Wall of Fire.”

That’s when Alexander first heard the story of Xenu. It goes something like this: 75 million years ago, the intergalactic overlord Xenu brought aliens from different planets to Earth, killed them with a hydrogen bomb and dispersed their bodies into the atmosphere. Their souls now afflict humanity with “disconnected thoughts.”

”The first thing I thought was, this doesn’t really apply to me,” Alexander said. “But then I decided I’m here on this course, I paid a bunch of money, so I’m going to read this stuff and see if it works.”

For a while, it did. From 1993 to 1996, Alexander spent up to three hours a day on ”self auditing,” solo counseling which he said made him feel “like you’re floating on a cloud.”

During these sessions, he tried to communicate with the dead aliens to get them to leave his body. Using the E-meter, Alexander would sit in a room by himself and repeat the story of Xenu over and over in his mind.

He said he was told not to discuss the process with anyone, not even his wife or other Scientologists.

Alexander scoffs at the idea that Scientologists are trying to “Clear” the planet:

”The idea in Scientology is that you can buy your salvation,” Alexander said. “They’re supposed to be clearing the planet, but how many people on the planet have $400,000?”

Ex-Scientology Story #128, OTs die, one from murder.

True stories of a Greedy cult.

Anne Marie Dunning, past EO & HCO Executive Secretary, Church of Scientology, Buffalo, NY.  She became disenchanted about Scientology for a number of reasons, one of them being the familiar refrain that OTs, instead of being shinning beacons of light, were just as human as anyone else.  Nothing made that clearer than the case of Scientologist Jeremy Perkins who killed his OT mother, Elli.  Another OT, Marie Bolt, a close friend of Anne’s died in a car accident.  There were warning signs of this man’s problems but his mother and others continued in their attempt to treat schizophrenia by the usual lame Hubbard methods.  Scientology reviles psychiatrists yet they offer no real help to anyone with mental illness. Anne said:

Jeremy was displaying strange behavior before he stabbed his mother to death. About seven months before he attacked his mother, he was arrested for trespassing at the University at Buffalo. He had been responding to voices that didn’t exist. I remember, Don and Elli went to the hospital and fought with the hospital staff not to have any psychiatric testing done on him.

 The failures of the OTs affected Anne greatly:

Course I don’t know of a member that wasn’t devastated by Elli’s death, she was such a kind person. But then to have Marie die suddenly, so close, well it was horrible. She was OT IV or V, like Elli, it just didn’t make sense. You never heard any failure stories about OT’s, only successes. Here we were all experiencing the failures, yet still expected to believe that OT’s were the most successful beings on the planet.

Her limit with Scientology was reached when the vultures of Scientology circled around trying to lay their hands on the insurance money from the children of her recently deceased friend:

Then someone in the room asked if Chris was sure that she had a life insurance policy. He replied, “No, but if I know Bob, I would think he has a hefty one on her. First I want you to reg the girls to pay for their services, then you can get them to join staff.”

I was dumbfounded. Basically, he was telling us to pressure these girls, who had just tragically lost their mother, of the money they would need to provide for their future. Then he wanted us to get them on staff, where all the services we just extorted them to pay for, would be offered for FREE!

That moment is when I went home and thought to myself, what on earth are these people doing? But I had no idea who to turn to or how to get out of this trap.

Ex-Scientologist story #127, Couldn’t find Hubbard’s “Research.”

Tired of the New Deal or the Square Deal? You need the double deal!!

Mick Wenlock was in Scientology for 12 years, he says:

I was in the SO – I started out as staff in HAPI, went to FOLO UK, went to Flag and the Commodores Staff area. Went to Europe as the Div 6 person at FOLO EU, became A/marketing Aide EU and the D/CO Production Europe and then CO AOSH EU. I ended up in the IMU which is where I left after getting declared.

He tried hard to find the basis of Hubbard’s “scientific” research:

The second biggest was trying to find the original ‘research’ that had been done on Dianetics – I was fascinated by the XDN series in the HCOBs which did provide a glimpse of experimental auditing and C/Sing. I tried to find some evidence of the orignal ‘stuff’ and never could. It was all Hubbard saying ‘what’ he had ‘found’ without ever showing HOW he had found it.

Why did he leave??

Well my take on it would be different from the CofS’s – whe I got back to Scandinavia as he IMU Tour IC in 1989 I went round the orgs and found that they were fractions of their former size, they had been eaten alive by Flag regges and FSMs and SO recruitment. Even Stockholm org. I decided to do something about it and management disagreed with me.

The other pre-final straw was John Nelson getting declared – he was a good friend and a good SO member , I guess over the years it occurred to me that this whole ‘declare’ thing was just total crap.

Ex-Scientologist Story #126, Jim Beebe

True stories about a False Religion.

The late Jim Beebe was a Scientologist and a member of the old CAN, Cult Awareness Network.  This group was formed after the Jonestown killings and it soon became a target of Scientology.  The death of CAN by Scientology’s slimy lawyers and OSA nut cases is somewhat beyond the scope of these stories but it is important if you want to understand what Jim Beebe and other brave souls had to contend with.    Jim left us some great interviews about Scientology in general and his life inside, here is one of his interviews:

Ex-Scientologist story #124, more rice & beans for the Sea Org.

Casey Kelly was part of the Sea Org in 1980, here he is talking to the Clearwater Commision in 1982 about living conditions:

Most of that time I spent in rooms with ten to twelve people in them, regular hotel rooms. Sometimes more, sometimes less. It usually averaged about eight to ten, because I had many different rooms. People would move often.

When I first came on staff here, they had what’s called the men’s dorm. You won’t believe this. We had fifty-four bunks in that room.

MR. LeCHER: In one room?

MR. KELLEY: It wasn’t a hotel room; it was a little bigger than that. It was in the old locker room of the old Jack Heart Hotel. It was downstairs and, obviously, there wasn’t a whole lot of room to move around down there. But it was definitely — it was fifty-four bunks and — I’m trying to remember if we had any vacancies. There was probably forty-eight men living in there at the time, and I lived there for six months. That wasn’t a real pleasant place; it was pretty crowded.

How well was he paid?  He got the usual Sea Org slave wages:

MR. LeCHER: What were you paid?

MR. KELLEY: At that time, when I first came on staff, I was paid $8.60 a week.

MR. LeCHER: Eighty?

MR. KELLEY: Eight bucks

MR. LeCHER: Eight dollars?

MR. KELLEY: Eight-sixty, $8.60. That was for the first — oh, boy, a long time, year and-a-half, until I became a full-fledged staff member and, then, it went up to seventeen-twenty.

The commision members, unframiliar with the greed Scientology and their indiference to the comfort of their staff, are amazed at the rice and beans routine.

MR. KELLEY: That’s what we were already making before David what’s his face was falsely reporting statistics. So well, we didn’t make it. We didn’t come up.  We didn’t make five hundred thousand dollars by the deadline. We went on beans and rice. I remember that was on my birthday, 1978. And I remember it because everybody else was eating beans and rice and I had cake. it was October 13th —

MR. LeCHER: Didn’t that bother you, though, to take in four or five hundred thousand a month and have beans and rice?

MR. KELLEY: That’s a week.

MR. LeCHER: A week? A week, rather. Didn’t that get you to think, you know, “They can at least afford to give me a hamburger or a steak or a lobster,” or something like that?

MR. KELLEY: I wasn’t real pleased with it. But it — and I really felt it was unfair to punish the whole staff because one guy was a little off, you know. I never have believed that you should punish everybody for one person’s messing up.  But you — I was pretty well indoctrinated then. That was when I was new on staff and I wasn’t — I got disenchanted later on. So, this is when I was new and I was still dedicated. I think I ate at McDonald’s that week.

Ex-Scientologist Story #123, “The Road to Xenu.”

Margery Wakefield suffered from panic attacks, a friend of hers told her about Scientology and how effective it was.

Could Scientology really help me get rid of the panic attacks? “Sure,” Jenny said. “They have an 100% effective psychology of the mind. It’s guaranteed. If it doesn’t work you get your money back. But that has never happened.”

The history of the earth, she explained, was actually millions of years old. There had been ancient civilizations that had come and gone. Scientologists had come to earth about thirty thousand years ago in space ships to try to help this planet, but they had failed. They were now back to complete the job.

Jenny also told me about the Scientology theory of “implanting.” “There is no heaven or hell,” she told me. After you die, your soul separates from your body and it is programmed to return to an “implant station” out in space to be programmed for its next lifetime on earth. All memories of one’s previous life are electronically removed from one’s mind.

These implant stations had been set up millions of years ago by evil forces. The nearest one was on the planet Venus. It was only through Scientology counseling techniques, called “auditing,” that one could escape the deadly implanting cycle.

Margery became a Scientologist, took the infamous Training Routines whereby once free people learned the first steps in becoming Hubbard bots.  Then she  joined the Sea Org. which is the paramilitary group that rules Scientology and skins the public members for every dollar they can get.   Besides the usual terrible living conditions she soon found herself on the way to the RPF, the punishment prison system of the cult.  This was because she dared to report that the supervisors in the Washington DC org were inflating the numbers and falsifying records to make it look like they had more students than they did.

Righteous person that I was, I wrote up a “Knowledge Report,” and sent it off to the Sea Org, reporting my superiors for this crime.

When the Commanding Officer of the Org found out about this, I was promptly assigned to the RPF.

The rules of the RPF had changed. Now I was required to wear a grey rag around my arm, and no one was allowed to talk to me. So I spent my days in silence. I had to clean all the bathrooms over and over again. Then I was given the job of mopping up the basement of the adjoining building, which had flooded.

There were rats in the basement, and the water was a murky, filthy green. I was told they wanted to convert this basement room into a nursery.  The house I was staying in also had rats and I was sleeping on a mattress on the floor. It was a humiliating existence.

Eventually she got free of Scientology, go here for the rest of her story; http://www-2.cs.cmu.edu/afs/cs/Web/People/dst/Library/Shelf/wakefield/testimony-08.html

Margery Wakefield is perhaps better known for her essay, The Road to Xeny, A Narrative Account of Life in Scientology.  This has come to be regarded as one of the classic accounts of the money grubbing  Alien/UFO cult of Scientology.  To read it follow this link. http://www.cs.cmu.edu/~dst/Library/Shelf/xenu/
