Before Xenu and Operating Thetans, usually referred to as OTs, arrived on the Scientology scene the object was to become, “CLEAR.” People who had achieved this level were no longer slaves to their reactive minds and thus were fully able to receive the full benefits of auditing. in Dianetic Auditor’s Bulletin vol. 2 no. 7 January 1952 “An afternoon with Ron” “You are only three or four hours from taking your glasses off for keeps.”
The ability to cure myopia was a promise made even earlier than that. In his classic work, “Dianetics,” Hubbard stated on page 72, “arthritis vanishes, myopia gets better, heart illness decreases, asthma disappears, stomachs function properly and the whole catalogue of illnesses goes away and stays away.”
But if you look at the pictures of the savants at St. Hill back in the 60’s you will see any number of them wearing glasses. No doubt they were victivms of bad auditing, or taking the wrong course which is the usual dodge that Scientologt gives when confronted by such shortcomings.
Such excuses wore thin after the release of the OT levels and the God-like power now available to Scientologists. These mighty being with their elevated physical powers and lofty intellectual attainments have achieved a level of consciousness that the rest of us can only dream about. Much has been written, in this blog and hundreds of others, about these powerful beings. And their apparent scarcity since Scientology has never shown any signs of having members who are either super men or super women. The fact has been remarked on that even ordinary abilities sometimes seem to be in short supply within Scientology.
But even if an OT cannot jump buildings in a single bound they should be able to do a trival thing like improve their eyes. This brings us back to the original question.
Why do OTs wear glasses?
Not only do they wear glasses but they do so openly. They make no attempt to hide this mild infirmity. One would think that they would be ashamed at this outward negation of Ron’s teachings and all the Scientology courses that they took Scientology; in complete disregard of the high estate of OTs uses pictures of OTs wearing spectacles in their promotional ads!!!
This has not gone unnoticed among some Scientologist, now former Scientologists. Martin Hunt, former member and case supervisor, states in his story of his time in the cult that: I began to see that the organization did not live up to its many promises of improvement of people; I myself was not improved, and neither was anyone else I saw in the organization. I asked Scientology’s elite, operating thetans, to show to me some of the powers they claimed to have, and they failed miserably at this small task. Most “OTs”, as they are called, were elderly, sick, feeble, dying of cancer, wore thick glasses, and were unimpressive to me, mentally, physically, and spiritually.

Next time you meet a Scientologist ask him why OTs wear glasses?
