Somebody mentioned why scientology, with all their riches, would aim at 'us'. They're aiming at vulnerable people. They have a program for
also (i don't know how to do quote yet, sorry!) from the same site (the process church is a scientology sub-cult according this source) (has the
human process been mentioned somewhere????):
""""""Several activities [of the Process Church] were clearly derived from Technianity, although the meaning given to them and the exact
procedures were changed radically. Examples include: Acceptance, Reflexes, Articulation, and Acknowledgment.
The first was derived from the very basic Technianity exercise TR-0 (Training Routine Zero), in which one is instructed to sit for up to two hours,
motionless, unresponsive, eyes glued on the eyes of another student who is sitting three feet away, following the same instructions, gazing back. TR-0
trains a student to "be there". In 1961, Gordon Rogers wrote, "Anything added to BEING THERE is sharply flunked by the coach. Twitches, blinks,
sighs, fidgets, anything except just BEING THERE is promptly flunked, with the reason why. Patter: Student coughs. Coach: `Flunk! You coughed.
Start.'" The Training Routines involved very strict discipline.
A second part of TR-0 was called "bull baiting." The student sits in the catatonic immobility of TR-0, and the coach tries to make him react against
his will. Rogers says, "This TR should be taught rough-rough-rough and not left until the student can do it. Training is considered satisfactory at
this level only if the student can BE three feet in front of a person without flinching, concentrating or confronting with, regardless of what the
confronted person does."
In theory, the student is said to be vulnerable at certain points, to have "buttons" which if pressed will make him react. Sensitivity about being
overweight, for example, may cause the person to blush when his fat is poked. These psychological buttons are to be found and "flattened."
Sometimes, it seemed to me, the student himself was flattened by bull baiting. At the very least, this and the other TRs are successful in flattening
the affect of the student, reducing his emotional responsiveness and his emotional resistance to control by Technianity.
TR-0 could also produce an altered state of consciousness. One time I did it with a young man from Kentucky, an English teacher I happened to like. We
sat staring at each other for two hours, which is 120 minutes, which is 7,200 seconds. A long time to stare into someone's face, allowed to breathe
and blink occasionally, but never look away, never smile or fidget. Afterward my partner exclaimed excitedly that he had seen me change before his
very eyes! I had become different persons -- a savage with a bone through my nose, then a decayed corpse covered with filth and cobwebs. He was sure
these were glimpses of my previous incarnations. Everyone in the Technianity center was pleased and complimented him on his perceptions. His
interpretations fitted the cult's ideology exactly.
I did not tell him what I had seen. He, too, had changed. A halo of light had grown around his face. He had become pale and two-dimensional,
shimmering, covered with dark spots. Of course, I interpreted what I saw as simple eye fatigue. He and I had experienced the same stimuli but
understood them differently. Unusual experiences like his, perceived within the definitions provided by the cult, are powerful conversion
First Open says we are all wrong, then he says us to stare in each others eye until we freak ourselves. Then open will say this is the power of satan
let's take back our personal, individual spirituality
