I understand the sentiment behind what Blubbtoad is saying, he’s saying that OT powers are not to be used as stupid parlor tricks because doing so will just trivialize $cientology and put undo attention on those at lower levels....not go upsetting governments and putting on a show to prove anything to homo sapiens for a while; it's a horrible temptation to knock off hats at 50 yards and read books couple of countries away...but you'll just make it tough on somebody else who's trying to get across this bridge.

But just look at the examples he gave. So here you are, you can “exteriorize” and do lots of amazing things just with your mind. And what are you concerned about? UPSETTING GOVERNMENTS!!
Blubbtoad always talks in this ridiculous 1950’s Cold-War era cloak and dagger horsehit.
And why would knocking off hats be a temptation for the enlightened? Sounds kind of mean doesn’t it?
Why not something like “Resist temptation to help the handicapped cross the street ... to prevent accidents from happening” etc. But no Blubbtoad uses knocking off hats as a temptation. Even reading books "a couple countries away” is a selfish endeavor. How about pulling the gun out of the hands of a murderer, wouldn’t that be a SELFLESS temptation of the all-powerful enlightened?
