It is appalling that Scientology is the hottest subject on the
planet, and yet we have here a list totally devoted to discussing
it and so little communication of any worth goes down on it.
You know why don't you? Because in the presence of SUPPRESSION
communication does not take place. The basic thing that CAN be
suppressed, the basic thing the suppressive WANTS to suppress
is COMMUNICATION and BEING THERE. YOU BEING THERE and COMMUNICATING.
The suppressive wants you to NOT BE so that you will NOT
Communication takes place on all 4 planes of existence, physical,
emotional, mental and spiritual. These correspond to Body, Heart,
Mind and Soul of early Christianity and Effort, Emotion, Thought
and Cause of early Scientology.
Communication defined as widely as possible is anything moving
from a cause point to an effect point. It can be ideas, words,
feelings, or even direct cause itself. It can also be bullets
which are a very low level physical communication sent in anger.
LRH has said that communication is the most dangerous thing there
is. You can kill with communications (lies), you can ruin people's
lives, you can enslave them, imprison them, you can incite entire
populations to riot and revenge with communication. In the presence
of communication NOTHING is safe, neither good guys nor bad guys.
Only in the presence of TRUTH is anyone safe, and even then its
only the good guys, so communication is always dangerous to SOMEONE.
A long time ago Thetans could communicate directly via the transference
of cause directly to effect. If they had an idea and they wanted
you to peruse it, they would just have the idea that you had the
idea too, and you would.
You can still do this, if you dare.
As things came down from the stratospheric heights of the tone
scale, communications were sent with more and more vias on them,
until finally people could only talk using physical means of symbolization
such as bodies and mouths and air waves or light waves and any
other form of matter, energy, space and time ((MEST)).
Long since have thetans forgotten that they are Spirit, which
is another word for CAUSE, and that the easiest thing in the world
is for two causes to communicate to each other without having
to go through all these lower level effects like MEST.
At the very lowest level, you know a PhD academic know-it-all
with children, it seems that MEST is cause itself, that MEST MADE
US and not that we made MEST, and so it is only natural that people
use MEST to communicate with because they know it is cause.
They know instinctively, that which is not cause can not communicate,
and that which is cause can communicate very well. The problem
then is what they have come to consider cause, MEST and not themselves.
This inversion that thetans are sitting in has resulted in the
rather humorous situation of something that is ALIVE, himself,
desperately trying to communicate to others like himself through
something that is DEAD, MEST. And then he wonders why there is
death, separation and loneliness.
You can only communicate as far as your transceiver can broadcast
or receive. A thetan high up on the tone scale, in his native
state, can communicate across forever. A body is stopped by the
nearest wall of matter, energy, space and time.
This is the source of sorrow and last good byes.
It is basically all an inability to communicate because MEST is
limited and you aren't. MEST just can't keep up with your desire
to know everyone forever.
Thank God its all a dream, right?
As usual our fall from Grace to the present pillory and stockade
of our lives did not happen over night. It was a long and arduous
route filled with many miscalculated decisions, turning points,
and forks in the road. At each step thetans could have made the
right decision but instead chose to make the wrong decision. At
first it was intentional, and then, also intentional, it became
At the top thetans were able to keep straight the fact that MEST
has space and time (dream though it may be) and that thetans themselves
were looker-on-ers. Thetans have a position in such a universe
only to the degree that they are presently looking at the universe
from that apparent position.
Thetans could change their viewpoint instantly and easily and
they could thus be anywhere they wanted to be just by wanting
to be there, and they could project their cause from that point
of view as if they were 'really there'. They could also project
their cause from ANYWHERE ELSE they wanted because looking FROM
a viewpoint did not mean they WERE AT that viewpoint. So they
could look from one viewpoint and originate causes from another.
Such actions were hard on the local inhabitants who had already
degraded down to being bodies and using MEST to send all their
communications. An all powerful 'nothing' that could move around
and do things from anywhere at will was not part of their national
security agenda, especially if it wasn't on their payroll.
Because a thetan could originate a causation from anywhere regardless
of 'where he really was', he was able to originate a communication
from anywhere too. Thus even after thetans started taking on localized
forms to better interact with the local population, they were
still able to originate a communication to anyone from someplace
very far removed from where 'they were'.
In other words thetan A could send a message to person B originating
at point C. If point C happened to be where thetan D was sitting,
person B would think the thing came from thetan D. This eventually
caused no end of mischief and alarm and great efforts were taken
to suppress such behavior.
People became absolutely paranoid about communication because
no one could be sure where anything was coming from, and even
when they knew WHERE it was coming from, they could not be sure
WHO was originating it. "Yes I know that communication there
came from where I am sitting officer sir, but really it was originated
by that scoundrel over there, really. (Sweet smile.)"
Since communications could kill or ruin entire civilizations it
became a great worry to everyone that all communications should
be traceable to their true originators.
Thus came to be one of the greatest turning points in the history
of this universe, and decisions were made that led to the eventual
graveyard society you see around you where people don't even know
anymore that there is something they aren't talking about.
The solution of course was that all communications should be tagged
with the true originator of that communication. If someone was
caught trying to send a free communication with out proper identification
on it they were punished terribly, or their friends were.
After a while no one was allowed to BE anywhere or LOOK from anywhere
but where his own body was because his body acted as an ID tag
for who he was, and it also delineated what he was allowed to
see and know, and most especially no one was allowed to originate
a communication from anywhere other than from his body. Thus thetans
became fixed to one location that could move only as well as the
body could move, and they were limited to a one source point communication
Where thetans were once talking to each other using the stars
as telephones, they were now paying taxes and going to war. At
least everyone knew who their friends were and who had said what.
You see the idea behind this was very simple. Although communication
could help, communication could also HARM. People were very afraid
of CRIMINAL communications, those that were used to HARM others
who were otherwise being good citizens and playing by the rules.
With free communication lines that were not tagged, anyone could
say anything to anyone and no one could know who said it. The
criminals had a heyday with this. They were very hard to catch,
and they often got others into trouble for their own actions.
And no one could trace them.
It was a forger's heaven. Or nightmare depending on how you look
at it. Because what came of this was a graveyard for free speech.
It was soon considered too dangerous to let free communication
lines exist and what ever advantage such free lines might have
had, they were way out weighed by the dangers of not being able
to hunt down and punish the criminals who would abuse the right
of free speech. The criminals were responsible for our condition,
right? They HAD to be tagged.
So ALL communication lines had to have an ID tag on them. This
became one of the most complex subjects known to man, this making
sure that every communication could be traced back to its sender.
Your present sojourn in impending carrion is just part of the
'final solution'. I mean imagine the job of taking a universe
full of thetans who could communicate from anywhere to anywhere
and get them all to agree to be only one place at a time and never
communicate from anywhere but there and make sure their signature
was on all such communications. The POLICE FORCE that this spawned
was incredible. Of course these policemen didn't actually PRODUCE
anything marketable, so they had to be paid out of the citizen's
pockets. And so was born taxes.
Now as I said there was a great turning point when the people
of the universe or a local area made these decisions about tagging
every communication line with its sender's ID. What got overlooked
in the ensuing demise was the mistake that had been made, and
the short sightedness of their 'safe solution' to the problem
of free untagged criminal communications.
It is true that tagging all communications made it much harder
for criminals to originate criminal communications.
So they joined the police force.
Who would police the police?
Who would govern the governors?
So where before you had a wild frontier free-for-all, now you
had a highly concentrated organization of Corruption, Temptation
and Seduction owning and controlling the masses of basically good
people, with laws in place to tax the good people at the point
of a gun, to feed and take care of the criminals in the police
force and the government it served. Criminals no longer needed
to break the laws. They MADE the laws. It is true that when everyone
has a free and untagged communication line some people will use
those lines for criminal purposes. But just so, good citizens
can use those same free and untagged lines to EXPOSE the criminals
without fear of retribution. On the surface it looks like the
criminals might be harder to catch, but once they are caught,
they can't trace back and take retribution on those that blew
the whistle on them.
On the other hand if every communication line is tagged, the criminals
will still use them to do their dirty work, but good citizens
will never dare to expose them because the criminal will always
know who turned them in and will take his revenge in good time.
The good citizen is much more afraid of the criminal than the
criminal is of the good citizen, which is why people made this
stupid mistake in the first place. Putting ID tags on all communication
lines would have worked, if all the criminals hadn't just become
communication line policemen! No one foresaw this one little stupidity.
EXCEPT THE CRIMINALS!
Tagging communication lines with ID's was a CRIMINAL's IDEA! The
good people let the criminals help them with their fear of criminals!
Now that the police force, which is armed to the teeth with guns
and taxes, is in total command of the communication lines and
EVERYONE is tagged, the criminals can NEVER be caught because
they protect their own, and anyone who dares to tattle on them
will get traced and eliminated immediately.
So this is the story of the society you see around you. Its a
very simple story. People just didn't want you to say what you
could say. The good people didn't want the criminals to communicate,
and the criminals didn't want the good people to communicate.
Then the criminals had a bright idea, tag all communication lines
and charge the good people for the service.
Now the end result is that only the criminals can talk and you
get to pay them to do it.
And that is Sweet Justice.
