The Science- Fiction Nature of Scientology

Scientology critics claim that the science-fiction nature of Scientology is only revealed on higher (and confidential) levels. They claim that by that time, you have been "brainwashed" enough and would not question the absurdity of it all.

This is utterly false. The science-fiction nature of Scientology is visible right from the beginning. Science-fiction-like stories and concepts are present in many widely available Scientology material - even in the free Scientology magazine sent out to thousands of members or potential members.

It is true that certain incidents that have a "dangerous restimulation potential", such as the Xenu incident, are only revealed on higher levels, but then their science-fiction nature is not really more extraordinary than what is largely available otherwise. What is more, Scientology promotional material about the Xenu incident itself (which they refer to the public as "the wall of fire") clearly indicates it is a galactic incident that happened 75 billion years ago - if this is not science-fictional enough...

Here is an example, among countless others, of science-fiction-like material available to the public. I could have taken it from virtually any Scientology book, magazine or study material. This one, however, is a particularly strong one, taken from L. Ron Hubbard's book, "The History of Man", and is being summarized by Margerie Wakefield in her book "Road to Xenu":

 

History of Man. A book by Hubbard. I turned to the Foreword and began to read.

This is a cold-blooded and factual account of your last sixty trillion years.

I blinked and looked again. Yes, that's what it said. I continued to read.

The test of any knowledge is its usefulness. Does it make one happier and more able? By it and with it, can he better achieve his goals?

This is useful knowledge. With it the blind again see, the lame walk, the ill recover, the insane become sane and the sane become saner. By its use the thousand abilities man has sought to recover become his once more.

Gravestones, ancient vital statistics, old diplomas and medals will verify in every detail the validity of "many lifetimes." Your E-meter will tell you.

The book, I discovered as I read, was divided between a description of the events in the past "track" of the "genetic entity", and the events in the past rack of the thetan, or soul. The genetic entity referred to those incidents which were supposedly recorded at a cellular level in the person's body. The events of the "theta being" were the memories of the person himself, as a soul.

Some of the past events that are common, according to Hubbard, to all of us on a cellular level are:

The Atom. The very first state of being of physical life, described by Hubbard as "a condition of motion, with the preclear in the center, with rings of motion traveling around him."

The Cosmic Impact, in which "cosmic rays enter the body in large numbers and occasionally explode in the body."

The Photon Converter, in which we, as algae and plankton begin "taking their living from photons from the sun and minerals in the sea."

The Helper, which is "mitosis, or cell splitting," in which one half of the split cell tries to help the other half to survive.

The Clam. Which when restimulated in a person may cause problems in the opening and closing of the jaw.

The Weeper. A bivalve, and the first creature to use the land. An important stage in our evolution. The Weeper later develops into the eyes of a person, and the pumping out of salt water in the Weeper is the basic reason why we cry.

Further stages in our evolutionary past include the Birds, Being Eaten, the Sloth, the Ape, Piltdown Man, and the Caveman.

In contrast, are the past events in the history of the theta being. They include:

The Jack-in-the-Box. "An invader trick, a method of trapping thetans." The thetan is given a box of pictures and "when he replaces the lid, the box explodes violently." People with this incident in restimulation, says Hubbard, tend to be very curious about cereal boxes.

The Halver. "A half-light, half-black gun which shot out a wave. Half of this wave, usually the black, hit the right side of the victim's body; the other half, in the same explosion, usually the light side, hit the left side of the victim.

"The Halver was rigged up with religious symbols and it truly lays in religion."

Facsimile One. An incident in everyone's "bank", or reactive mind. Originally laid down in this galaxy about one million years ago. In it, "a push-pull wave is played over him (the preclear), first on his left side, then on his right and back and forth from side to side, laying in a bone deep somatic. When this treatment is done, the preclear is dumped in scalding water, then immediately in ice water. Then the preclear is put in a chair and whirled around."

When this incident is "run", or audited out, Hubbard claims, it will eradicate "such things as asthma, sinus trouble, chronic chills and a host of other ills."

Before Earth. An incident in which the thetan is "summoned before a council, is frowned upon, and then sent elsewhere than where he is." The effect is to make the person a "more obedient colonist."

The Joiner, in which "a person is "packed in" with other souls by electronics.."

The Ice Cube, in which "the being is packed in ice, taken to a new area and is usually dumped in the ocean." When this incident is in restimulation, the person may suffer from chronically cold hands and feet.

Between Lives. The familiar between lives implants. In this incident, the person "`reports in,' is given a strong forgetter implant and is then shot down to a body just before it is born."

About these implants, Hubbard writes, "The report station for most has been Mars. Some women report to stations elsewhere in the solar system. There are occasional incidents about Earth report stations. The report stations are protected by screens. The last Martian report station was established in the Pyrenees."

The Emanator. "This is a large, glowing body of radioactive material which hangs magically in thin air, a sort of god, an all-knower. Its outpulse puts one into a trance."

I was getting a headache. I looked up from the book and around at the class. I wanted to ask someone about what I was reading, but I would have to wait for break, when I was safely outside the ever-present scrutiny of the Supervisor.

The other incidents on the theta track, I continued to read, were the Double Body, Theta Traps, the Body Builder, the Jiggler, the Whirler, the Bouncer, the Spinner, the Rocker, the Boxer, the Faller, the Education, and the Fly Trap. Of this last, Hubbard wrote:

It was of a gummy material. The thetan who got into it punched and fought at this material until he was psychotic enough to react to the physical universe laws of responding to motions. He was taken out of this trap by a crew of do-gooders who had caught him for his own good and who trained him in religious sweetness and syrup until they considered him fit to be part of their group.

 

It should be clearly visible, therefore, that critics who claim that the science-fiction nature of Scientology is only revealed on the higher levels are simply not telling the truth.
