Please watch the video of them throwing money up in the air and cackling.

Throwing cash in the air, "wasting" it and laughing while scamming every last dime of your net worth is a Scientology cultural thing. Cult drama.
When I was a staff member, senior staff members would often refer to money going to Scientology as 'theta.' So there's another definition of 'theta' for you. Theta: money going to Scientology. Hey, Oxford defines the words in its dictionary based on usage. What's a thetan then? A being made out of money then? Maybe another word for 'whale'?
Aside from the emotional tone level of absolute gleefulness, doing things like this with cash is supposed to be something of a havingness process for staff members. 'Havingness' is a Scientology word. Many of Scientology's special words are obtained by adding 'ness' to them. Examples: 'beingness', 'doingness'. I suppose Hubbard never got around to doing it twice. For example, 'havingnessness'.
Passing money around, throwing it in the air, caressing it, rubbing it on one's self and other such things are supposed to increase a staff member's ability to have money. This doesn't really work because the entity that ends up having most of the money is the Sciengology organization. Except it's not 'there's one for you nineteen for me.' It's more like, 'there's one for you two million for me. Then off to the registrar with you.'
