Reconfiguring The Tech

Post by J. Swift » Sun Mar 14, 2010 5:42 am

Let us imagine Scientology as software for the mind. Here is how I would reconfigure Scientology software if I wanted to practice the Tech outside of CoS. We begin by noting that Scientology is modular because it was written and built over time by LRH and his Compilers and Tech people. Thus, we take a structuralist approach.

It is obvious that the Tech can be decoupled from CoS. This happened a long time ago when Freezoners executed the following commands:

The Tech --> Disable and uninstall CoS
The Tech --> Disable and uninstall IAS

Once we have decoupled the Tech from CoS, we can proceed to the main structural reconfiguration of the Tech:

The Tech --> Disable and uninstall KSW doctrine
The Tech --> Disable and uninstall PTS/SP doctrine
The Tech --> Disable and uninstall Homo Novis and Genocide doctrines
The Tech --> Disable and uninstall hard pressure sales/crush regging
The Tech --> Disable and uninstall weekly sales statistics
The Tech --> Disable and uninstall OSA
The Tech --> Disable and uninstall RTC
The Tech --> Disable and uninstall COB

Disabling these eight modules opens up incredible processing space and speed.

There is no reason for Scientology processing to be linked to these arbitrary firewalls and junk code that ultimately serve only LRH's and DM's personal interests. These modules are organizational and not spiritual in nature. Empirical observation has consistently proven that these modules cause Scientology processing to repeatedly crash.

LRH did many horrendous things. Since I cannot overwrite the Truth, I take the hit on LRH's bio and admit that his legacy is trashed and move on:

The Tech --> Enable telling the truth about LRH

There is zero need to defend LRH. If anyone asks, Scientologists can readily admit that LRH was a dysfunctional genius. They cannot be any more honest about LRH than this.

Reactive Mind and Engrams: This model works in practice, but I would not get religious with it. In fact, I would moderate the lower grades with some Zen in order to avoid believing in engrams. All one wants to do is to find areas where they are stuck and eliminate the engrams that are keeping them stuck. Lower grade processing is structured visualization and recall guided by the meter. My experience on auditing is that I went back to traumatic incidents and ran them out just as LRH described.

It is important to not mistake LRH's model for reality. Auditing is only one technique in a full spectrum of techniques. For example, it makes sense to be able to switch between auditing and group processes where one can share and compare their case with other people. Hence:

The Tech --> Enable the sharing of one's case with other Scientologists
The Tech --> Enable the mixing of practices

The OT Levels: Some people claim wins on OT and I do not invalidate them. Personally, I have no interest in OT. I can arrive at "Intrapsychic Noise" from another spiritual direction and eliminate LRH's conceptual-magickal need for BT's.

IMO, Hubbard mistook "Intrapsychic Noise" for entities because he was skewing everything in terms of OTO in the late 1940's and early 1950's. Thus, his BT's are really the "Elementals" of Magick reconfigured into his OT levels. There is really no need to enable "Solo Metered Seance Mode" to handle BT's when BT's can be reconfigured and redefined as Intrapsychic Noise (IN). However, OT's seem to enjoy metered seances. Thus:

The Tech --> Enable switching between BT and IN modes
The Tech --> Allow Solo Metered Seance Mode
The Tech --> Switch on Incident III module in Solo Metered Seance Mode
The Tech --> Switch on Zen Mode to bypass BT module

By allowing BT/IN mode switching, OT's can define for themselves what all that "identity-noise" is about. In Zen, the noise is found to be Mind. As such, it is merely noticed and allowed to pass by. There is no need to attribute entities to bodily sensations. However, if OT's preferentially choose to enable an Incident III interpretation, then why not? Scientology is all subject-object differentiation and so BT's serve a theoretical purpose if one really wants to do OT.

IMO, LRH wanted people to characterize and audit Intrapsychic Noise as BT's in order to gate them back into the Scientology system forever. In Zen, there is no EP, no OT XV or however high LRH finally parked the OT levels.

LRH wanted to cap Enlightenment at the top of the OT levels and this is patently absurd, which is why he patented it I suppose. You can't get to Enlightenment from the Bridge. The Bridge will only take you to the top of the Scientology Bridge and nowhere else

Ah yes the tech. What is it exactly? It's an ongoing attempt, starting from the Pabs, to force square pegs into round holes. Pulling any string would result in the falling of a house of cards. Historically, the tech is one Bulletin written after another, and the latest always trumps the older yet the older reinforces the newer simply because the older is part of the historic unraveling of mankind's foibles. Circularly, it's a chain. If you pullout links, you're left with broken links and indecipherable material.

The tech must remain as is to be tech... that's the Briefing Course... unfortunately for those who adhere to it. There's no tampering with it. It is what it is.

Ab Reaction, Pre Hubbard, may have had some value. Dianetics is a crock of shit because there is no reactive mind. Dianetics creates the reactive mind. Ab Reaction made no such claims, but for some was beneficial... so I understand.

The tech is like a cord... evenly twisted each strand wound into a whole. You don't cut into it... you don't mess with it, for each strand supports another, and it is deemed a prophetical line of work.

And that's the problem isn't it. You don't pull strings out of "it". If you do, you are pulling foundational credit away from the founder, and violating KSW.

In this context, I'd say Scientology is a black magical operating system. "Deleting" or "upgrading" programs does nothing, because the operating system is just as likely to lie as tell the truth about what it is and what it's running.
Hubbard in DMSMH wrote:In the same way the human mind, being called upon to resolve problems of a magnitude and with enough variables to confound any mere calculating machine a thousand times an hour, is prey to incorrect data. Incorrect data gets into the machine. The machine gives wrong answers. Incorrect data enters the human memory banks, the person reacts in an “abnormal manner.” Essentially, then, the problem of resolving aberration is the problem of finding a “held-down seven.”
Hubbard, L. R. (1950). Dianetics : the modern science of mental health : a handbook of dianetics procedure (2007 ed.). Los Angeles, Calif.: Bridge Publications.
If L. Ron Hubbard was a malignant narcissist, which he was, why would anyone trust him to find their "held-down 7's"?

A couple more notes:
J. Swift wrote:Reactive Mind and Engrams: This model works in practice,
It is true that Hubbard's R6/engrams model works in theory. In fact, it works, or can work, perfectly in theory. But it does not work in actual practice. That is, if by "works" is understood "works as advertised."
StevieRayFan wrote:Dianetics is a crock of shit because there is no reactive mind. Dianetics creates the reactive mind.
Hubbard/Dianetics equates the reactive mind with the unconscious mind, and there is an unconscious mind. Dianetics didn't create the unconscious mind. But Dianetics does not erase the unconscious mind, and the ideas that it does erase the unconscious mind and that Dianetics subjects have rid themselves of their unconscious minds are false and damaging.

Caroline, I was careful to make explicit key points in reconfiguring the software:
LRH did many horrendous things. Since I cannot overwrite the Truth, I take the hit on LRH's bio and admit that his legacy is trashed and move on
Reactive Mind and Engrams: This model works in practice, but I would not get religious with it. In fact, I would moderate the lower grades with some Zen in order to avoid believing in engrams.
The goal is to not believe in Hubbard or his model. The goal is strip Scientology down to its bare bones structure as an Occultic Self Help process. Dn/Scn in its essence is Occultic Self Help. Hubbard applied a psycho-engineering methodology to seance, divination, and magickal transcendence. He vulgarized and automated OTO among his other feats of thetanic prestidigitation.

The source codes of Scientology OT translate to what is expected of a Magickal Adept. Of course, Hubbard collapsed all possibilities for secret knowledge by shunting OT's back into The Endless Swamp of Forever Case Problems that serve to explain the lack of any final enlightenment in Scientology. The cog at the top of the Bridge is that an OT needs more auditing. Hubbard could never get himself or anyone else off the Wheel of Birth and Death by use of Scientology.

In his defense, Hubbard clearly stated that thetans always need a game and that is why they always mock up. A real OT would have no problems and would unmock Scientology. There would then be no game. There would then be no cash flows into Scientology. Hubbard was definitely much better off making Scientology an unwinnable game in which everyone gains unwinnability itself and therefore has a persistent, uncrackable case: What would a Scientologist do if they no longer needed auditing or LRH? LRH would be in jeopardy of losing his immortality if Scientologists no longer needed him.

If Scientologists want to experience the occultic roots of Scientology, they should spend at least two years in Thelema: http://www.thelema.org/

That's interesting, J. Swift. I'm aware that prominent magicians such as Israel Regardie recommend that their students undergo a course of therapy as preparation for magical training.
In the Forward of What You Should Know About The Golden Dawn, C.S. Hyatt wrote:A NOTE ON THE COMPLETE GOLDEN DAWN SYSTEM

The Complete Golden Dawn System of Magic is the major source of western magical knowledge. In my view it is the only magical gnosis of any real worth that the West has known. This enlarged edition can do nothing but encourage the student on his path to Enlightenment. However as Regardie has warned and has emphasized to me over and over again, "the emotional makeup of the student must be purified before the real and true benefits of the Golden Dawn can find a true and lasting home." For several decades he has asserted that the best preparation for the pursuit of magic is a course of therapy. I fully concur with Regardie, particularly when I have had first hand opportunity to view the results obtained by those who didn't heed his warning. I would like to share an observation which I have seen over and over again. Perhaps the most obvious and the most dangerous problem is an overwhelming increase in ego-centricity. Instead of the Magical work producing the desired effect of shiftingthe focus of energy from ego-centeredness to Self-centeredness, the God-like universal and impersonal power of the Self is claimed by the ego as its own creation. When this happens all true progress ceases. It is as if a substitution takes place; the student appears as if "he personally" "him alone" (IS) the Divine force. His desires and whims are paramount, any threat to his personal authority are met with venomous attacks. I have found that this can be avoided by a course in therapy as well as keeping in mind the following "be prompt and active as the Sylphs, but avoid frivolity and caprice. Be energetic and strong as the Salamanders, but avoid irritability and ferocity. Be flexible and attentive to images, like the Undines, but avoid idleness and changeability. Be laborious and patient like the Gnomes, but avoid grossness and avarice. So shalt thou gradually develop the powers of thy soul and fit thyself to command the spirits of the elements."

With this aside — let us all strive to quit the darkness that has blinded us from our true and ineffable Self and Seek the White Light which stands before us — now.

Gareth Knight in A Practical Guide to Qabalistic Symbolism wrote on the use of Hubbard's Tone scale in connection with the corrective work of Geburah. Knight clearly bought a bill of goods, but he did recommend Dianetics for magicians.
Gareth Knight wrote:13. The hypocritical way in which the mind works can well be gathered from reading comparatively modern French literature which tends to go deeply into this way of mind-working. Particularly recommended are Mauriac, Marcel, Gide, Sartre, Camus and also such playwrights as Duerenmatt, and the existentialist writers generally, from Kierkegaarde onwards. This, however, may prove a formidable obstacle to anyone who is not already inclined towards modern literature; and those who do not feel inclined to wade through many pages of philosophy and psychological analysis—fictional or non-fictional—with subsequent lengthy introspection upon themselves, are better advised to study the work of L. Ron Hubbard. Scientology is not a panacea; however, it can clear the decks for action quicker than most other therapies, but a person who is 'clear' is not automatically an Ipsissimus—he is merely an unaberrated human being, and this is so rare in these days that it does seem something rather special.

[...]

Hubbard has stated that one of the marks of an unaberrated being is the ability to face chaos or disorder and stick with it; in other words, not to escape into apathy, grief, anger, facetiousness, intellectualising, sanctimony, false mysticism or any other of the myriad methods of running away. As a result of Original Sin this planet is in a state of chaos and disorder.

Actually, virtually all Occultic processes can be considered Occultic Self Help processes, which would make "self help" unnecessary or a redundancy. That yields the equation, Scientology is an Occultic process.

Pete, you darn well know that those High School health classes warned us that reefer would lead to stronger stuff like horse, peyote, and finally into satanic practices such as using Ouija boards and e-meters. Pete, put that Mary Jane down or you will inevitably backslide into Scientology:

Why is the Tech so odious and detested?
Faces and voices came up and vanished; wherever Mrs. Pattycake tried to hold them they hurt her; her whole past was sore and festered at every touch. Her past was the movement, the Tech; present and future, too, belonged to the Tech, were inseparably bound up with its fate; but her past was identical with it. And it was this past that was suddenly put in question.

The Tech’s warm, breathing body appeared to her to be covered with sores—festering sores, bleeding stigmata. When and where in history had there ever been such defective saints? Whenever had a good cause been worse represented? If the Tech embodied the will of history, then history itself was defective.

The cause of the Tech's defectiveness must be found. All our principles were right, but our results were wrong. This is a diseased century. We diagnosed the disease and its causes with microscopic exactness, but wherever we applied the healing knife a new sore appeared. Our will was hard and pure; we should have been loved by the people. But they hate us. Why are we so odious and detested?

We brought you truth, and in our mouth it sounded a lie. We brought you freedom, and it looks in our hands like a whip. We brought you the living life, and where our voice is heard the trees wither and there is a rustling of dry leaves. We brought you the promise of the future, but our tongue stammered and barked. ...

Caroline, the material you posted is fascinating. As a general statement on occultic or magickal work, it has been said for millennia that people can go mad or insane if they approach the "Secret Reality" too fast. In other words, hardcore spiritualists have known several things for a very long time:

1. Esoteric spiritual work involves dismantling the "lower" self. This refers to the mental self or egoic self. The ego has been classically understood in Hinduism (East) and the Kabbalah (West) to be a false identity system that keeps people in bondage via an enforced, unconscious identification with the mind, the body, and this one life. The esoteric and magickal systems arising from both schools stated that the goal was to use various means to break free of the ego in order to reach higher spiritual states of awareness and freedom. In the course of dismantling the lower self and its various mental and astral bodies, a novice could dismantle the content too fast and seriously destabilize their identity and sanity. This is especially true when drugs and/or the so-called "fast enlightenment techniques" are used.

2. Preparatory work is always called for. In Old World schools, this meant renouncing all worldly affairs and going into a monastery and working. Daily work on the decks, so to speak, for 2-5 years was the price of entry. The monastery worked to examine and break down a novice slowly while getting them spiritually and organically in rhythm with monastic life. There were several texts to be studied with a spiritual master. The master decided when a monk was ready to advance. Sometimes martial arts training, archery, or fencing were required studies to build the mind, body, and Will. The liberal arts and sciences such as math, music, astronomy, geometry, etc. had to be studied. Essentially, a person had to be healthy, disciplined, educated, and regular in their daily patterns before they were ever allowed anywhere near the rocket fuel. People who could not abide the strict monastic discipline and daily work were made to leave and think over what they wanted. Some came back, some did not.

3. Monastic life included bodily purification, eating a strict diet, physical work, hiking, farming, etc. Fasting is also called for in the old works. Sweating rituals, yoga, chanting, and intense memory work were very common. Drinking was limited to water and tea. Food was very basic and grown in and around the monastery by the monks. Hubbard was not unique with his Purif in this sense. A clean organic diet, exercise, meditation, and training in the Will were all preparatory work. A candidate's Will was of particular concern: The work requires singleness of mind and focus.

4. There is a "Wall of Fire" through which any seeker must past. Hubbard was in no way original with his Wall of Fire. This imagery is ancient. You can Google many old texts and find walls of fire, angels with flaming swords, monsters, and other scary entities that the seeker has to confront as they melt down the ego in a fiery, purficatory process.

5. Regardie's comments on therapy perhaps reflected Jung's work in archetypal psychology. The therapy of poetry, myth, and archetypes is suited to esoteric work because esoteric work goes into the mythical and archetypal substrates that underlay the mind and ego. There are a lot of layers of structure, a series of laminates and subtle bodies, that the work takes a person down into. The ability to see it all and transcend it exceeds therapy and is rather yogic work. Zen demands that these structures not be believed. However, they are artfully acknowledged and looked at in the work. IMO, enjoyments such art, music, writing, yoga and hiking are better than therapy at that level. I call it "shamanistic naturalism" because it ordinary and transcendent at the same time.

5. The so-called "psych break" can happen in advanced spiritual work. This is why a monastery is a desirable place. If someone destabilizes, they have the power of familiar surroundings and routine in a community. They are organically and spiritually connected to the Earth, to the monastery's rhythms, and to its food and water. People have flipped out and the spiritual master returns them to sanity. It is assumed that people will sometimes lose their psychic equilibrium in advanced spiritual work. I have known people who got really flipped out doing Zen because Zen is potent.

6. There are definite psychological risks associated with hardcore spiritual work. CoS amplifies the risks and expands the stress with its arbitrary "machine language" Tech that reduces people to being TR/KSW robots while simultaneously pushing them to expand and become big beings. The Tech has always been schizoid this way. It is unrealistic to expect a Scientologist to go exterior while simultaneously keeping in ethics and KSW. When someone "goes exterior" or expands as a being, the Force of Consciousness will likely allow them to see right through CoS and no longer need or want Scientology. LRH knew that and I think that is why he chased off anyone who became an Adept, for Adepts are a threat to his money-making machine and Homo Novis ideology. The truth is that CoS does not want anyone to be a big being. Only DM is allowed to be a big being. That limits CoS.

Hubbard never mastered the Tech in his own life. AFAIK, no one has ever mastered Scientology because there are no Scientology Spiritual Masters. Tech and Qual people are not Spiritual Masters. Auditors are not Spiritual Masters. Scientology is not about Spiritual Mastery. Scientology is about delivering processing that will process humans into Clears, Operating Thetans, and Sea Org. These people are then supposed to clear the planet. For this reason, I see Scientology primarily as an ideology and not as a spiritual practice. Thetans are processed to some EP that only exists in Scientology. A needle has to correlate an attest: The machine becomes senior to the Thetan. This is Orwellian.

LRH was many things. He was a glib OTO Adept who thought he had the requisite skills to fuse hypnosis, Freudian therapy, and high pressure sales into some unique, monetized form of gnosis. He called his Early Gnosis Dianetics. IMO, Dianetics was a genuine post-magickal working. Dianetics was the world's first fusion of psychology and magick into a novel form of self help. However, people had to accept LRH's view of mental machinery for Dn to work. Hubbard would later use this acceptance against them.

Hubbard's pattern after Dn was to create seemingly esoteric problems for which he had apparently complex solutions. Nevertheless, his complexity was always reduced to simply asking people questions over and over and over in session. No matter how space opera or wholetrack, Scientology always comes down to being in session, for the meter sees all and knows all. The E-Meter became the Oracle in Scientology. That in and of itself is a stunning repudiation of Spirituality in favor Psycho-Tyranny. For all kinds of reasons, Hubbard kept increasing CoS' reach and control into all areas of the Scientologist's life, thinking, business, family, and income. There were no areas off limits to LRH or CoS. In doing so, Hubbard transformed his novel fusion of Dn into the ideology of Scientology.

Somewhere in the ideology remains Hubbard's novel fusion of Psychology and Magick. That fusion is Scientology: People using psychology and Magick to handle present life problems; their wholetrack psyche; and to summon and treat their engrams and BT's. Unfortunately, the fusion has to be hidden and called the Tech. For Scientology to reanimate the fusion would require CoS to unweave its ideology and stop telling lies as a principle of its existence. This is where CoS is stuck. CoS long ago ran aground on a sandbar in its Ocean of Surreal Ideology. It is for the greatest good that this happened.

I am putting this thread back into play because right now seems to be a good time to unravel the Church of Scientology and its core teachings.

OCMB is wide open to new members -- and the Old Lurkers who have accounts but do not post.

Caroline's body of work on Hubbard and the Occult is remarkable. I have more occult information I am putting into play. Anyone who wants to get into this game, please feel free to jump in -- especially new OCMB'ers. Log in and jam with us on Space Opera stuff.

I love your analogy of how the "Tech" is a piece of software of the mind. That being said, new programmers can always revise old software and make it function better. I'll take an idea from the movie inception - that ideas are the greatest viruses of the human mind. In the case of scientology it passes itself off as a great idea that will save the world - but in reality it is a fine example of how it is a virus of the mind. This software does need to be recompiled, certain services removed, and unnecessary junkware removed. I am still not convinced that all can be saved. I am still of the belief that the whole project needs to be scrapped and forgotten about.
My friends, love is better than anger. Hope is better than fear. Optimism is better than despair. So let us be loving, hopeful and optimistic. And we’ll change the world.

Scientology is indeed a game, while Buddhism aims to step outside of the game. The Scientologist member's game is to be better than everybody else; they imagine each level they buy gets them further along, so they collect expensive courses like six-year-olds earning little gold stars in school. Scientology's game for the CoS leaders and auditors is to grab and control more people and extract their money and labor.

Just like people watching a magician want to be fooled, Scientologists participate in the deception once the promised abilities don't arrive, and they accept the lies that it's their own fault. But the student's fear of blackmail and of disconnection add unfair advantage to CoS.
