View Full Version : Ole Boskov

Today, I found out that a very, very dear friend, Ole Boskov died of liver cancer at age 48. I have to say that I am pretty much devistated. Ole was one of the very finest people that I ever met in all my years and travels with Scientology. He was a loving, gentle, kind soul with a HUGE heart. While many people talked about Hubbard's "Code of Honor" Ole LIVED it. He was a truly great artist and man.

About two months ago, we had a long talk about my book. Ole wanted to read it, so I sent him the english manuscript. However, shortly thereafter, he slipped into a coma and never regained consciousness. In our last conversation, he was still defending Scientology.

Ole was a "New OT8", had done the SHSBC, KTL etc, etc, etc and was training to be the Senior C/S of Copenhagen.

Before his "Scientology Career" Ole had had a number one hit throughout Scandanavia doing a Danish Rap version of "You Can't Touch This". On top of that, he was a wonderful composer/lyricist and an amazing pianist.

In that last conversation, he told me that his marriage of over 20 years was over and that he had left his wife and 10-year-old son to concentrate on getting well. Basically, he added, his career was finished, he was financially ruined, and that he had been "successfully" operated on 2 times in the last year for liver cancer. After all that -- in the very next breath, he then told me "Yeah, LRH's tech is amazing. If it wasn't for that, I would have been long gone..."

I was screaming inside my head, and thinking to myself "Ole, you are a "New OT8", You've done the KTL, SHSBC, the L's and all these others courses, and auditing. You've invested hundreds of thousands of dollars. Look at your life!!! You are 48 years old. You have had liver cancer 2 times in one year. Your 20 year marriage is over. Your career is finished. You're financially ruined. You're DYING, man. Is this being "AT CAUSE" over the physical universe. What the fuck is OT about your life????"

But in that moment, I could only say "Ole, there is much to say to that last comment, but NOW is not the time for that discussion. The only thing you need to do is get healthy."

My heart goes out to his wife, son and the rest of his family.

You are an ignorant, insensitive asshole. Unlike your disgusting self, Ole was a genuine person. Although I had left the church, we remained friends. Koki you need to apologize for your insipid and sorry attempt at being funny at the expense of a dead man who was worth 10,000,000 times more than you can ever dream of being.

Honest, Caring, Truthful, Interested, and a real Humanitarian.

I just can't get my last conversation with him out of my mind.
To be dying the way he was, in a LOT of pain, and STILL defend the tech. is incomprehensible to me. He deserved a better life than what he got.

First of all, thank you all for your postings here.
I am sure that Ole's his wife and son, would appreciate it very much
if they were not still "in."

When we all started in SCN, at one point, we were all very idealistic.
We believed for a while (some longer, some shorter) that there was
a way to create a "better race" of humans, who had lost their
"reactive" minds (Sorry for using LRH here).

We were all sold a "bill of goods" about becoming "at cause" over the
physical universe the higher you went up the bridge.
Ole never stopped believing that.

He dedicated his life, his money, and his numerous talents to going
up the "Bridge To Total Freedom." He wanted to become a C/S to help
others do the same. At the end, this finest of gentlemen got trapped in
the prison of the tech and it killed him.

Ole was the kind of person that I always wanted to be.
He deserved a much better life than the one that he chose for himself.
He certainly did not deserve to die the way he did.

I called another one of my friends (an "OT3") in Munich yesterday,
to tell her about Ole's death. She was as devastated as I was.

There is no "WIN" in Ole's death. However, if my telling my friends who
are still in, or posting it here can help others understand that there is
no "Bridge to Total Freedom." The only person who can "free" you, is YOURSELF,
then at least Ole will have helped OTHERS go free.... although never in the way he imagined it.

Again, I thank you all.

No, imo there is a difference between users on this board, Mark.

Just take a look at the generated (Ex-) Scientologist, even maybe Oles kids, they only knew this "Scientology World". They were brought and born inside Hubbards evil world. I am not sure if they are "idealistic", they don't know other... Imo between all users here on ESMB is a difference in what they believed and why they did it. You can't generalize it.

Yes, you are right. I shouldn't generalize.
I should say, "When I and some of my friends started in SCN, we were idealistic."

Sorry for your loss but this comment is amazing. It is amazing how most people, not just Scientologists, can make the outcome fit a persons original beliefs. Very similar to a Christian justifying God killing people in an earthquake. Or an ex-scientologst acting as if absolutley everything realted to scientology is bad. People never change.

No I think your post is great. I am agreeing with you. I am jsut adding that I think that most people will will justify their outcome to conform with their beliefs about pretty much anything.

Am I a Scientologist? No I am a guy who uses whatever technologies or parts of technologies to make his life better. If some of those technologies happen to come from Scientology then so be it.

To me a Scientologist makes the assumtion that Scientology is right and will justify his observations and facts to to make it so ...KSW

That is not me. Have I managed by statistics YES, have I seen improvements with Dianetic YES? Have I gotten improvements with SOME scientology. YES. I thought the purif was great.

Has it all worked NO. HAve I been harrased YES have I been man handled to give money YES.

Would I go to an org..NO

Would I get auditing sometime in the future. MAybe if I think it will help. not in an org

I could vote for a democrate but that doesn't make me a demoract.

the one good thing about all the scientology he did. when he was dying he thought he knew what was coming next and that he will come back soon in a brand new baby body with all his magical super powers. that probably made him less scared of dying and in the end i would have let him believe that. not because it is true but because it would have given him comfort..That is probably the nicest thing about religion. Its the thing I miss the most about waking up from the sci-fi story.

Hi Reasonable, I agree with you, use whatever you think can help you. I don't like to be categorized, so I understand your not wanting to be labelled. I also had some wins with Dianetics and some of the Basics. They are common-sense, and they do work -- whether Hubbard codeified or "borrowed" or created them, is pretty much irrelevant to me.

Ole died thinking that he will be back in a new baby body with all his super powers. His sister told me that he was in good spirits right up until the end. For that, I am quite grateful.

Right. Cuz no one outside the cult gets sick or dies too young.

And, yes, of course some people in the cult defer medical treatment. Far too often. And some of the cancer deaths among Scn'ists are caused by this lack.

But some Scn'ists do get medical treatment. I knew an OT who had cancer and did so.

I'm not sure that anyone knows if Ole had decent medical treatment or not, if he didn't go to the doctor for it or did so.

So I'm loath to use this as a focus on the need to depart the cult. Most of the time, yes. But perhaps not on this thread.

Ole died young, his friend misses him. Bottom line.

Imo without this opinion, the believe in Hubbard, the believe in "end cycle" and the believe that he is a great OT etc. he would still be alive, because he would have visited a doctor, used medical care and cancer check ups. You could say his believe killed him. It is terrible to say, he was in good spirit because of his believes at the end of his live, because this believes killed him.

Hubbard's evil Cult is guilty on his dead.

But imo in the fight against an "evil" illness you need even a strong will. A will to live. Without this imo no medicine would help... You are the best example MrN, you have a strong will and with this will you fight against your illness. You could even say, I end cycle a new live is comming, why fighting here and give up. Imo you wouldn't be able to be here without your will.

Look at my father, he gave up too. He end cycle too. With a will to live and a fighting for his live I am sure he would be still here.

We don't know what Ole got for medical care or what the doctors told him, he could do to save his live. Maybe he was to late there or maybe he stoped the therapy. There are around enough examples where Scientologist gave up to fight against a strong illness... Where they at a point of time, don't want to fight anymore, stop the medical care and end this cycle...

A few points:

I may be ONE example, but the best? I wouldn't say so. To give you another example: Klaus, a true Jazz expert and our drummer from the beginning of the band until he died a few years ago, had brain tumors. No cults involved, best medical treatment one could ever wish for, back on stage with us 3 weeks after his 2nd brain surgery died way too young too.

He was a fighter, but there are diseases where one just can't win, and the best treatment one can imagine would just give you a few weeks/months. Cult or no cult.

Of course when one believes that life can just be "rebooted", that may reduce the "will to fight" - indeed resulting in a ... well, perhaps not a wasted life, but surely a few wasted years.

The cult surely is responsible for many (suspicious or too early) deaths, but neither you nor I know whether this is the case here.

Ok, agreed.

But for me you are a very good example. :yes:

He was indeed, but let's not derail this thread - it's about Ole Boskov, who I know nothing about.


...and I still wish my father hasn't stoped to take medical care. In one week he is three years dead.

I know. This is the sick (IMHO) belief that life can be rebooted, and all this "greatest good for the greatest number", that makes people give up way too soon. Why fight, when you believe that you'll receive a brand new body soon?

I believe this is the only life I'll ever have, and I will not give up until it's over.

Ole did seek medical treatment. His operations were indeed medical. At one point, they removed 60% of his liver. When it grew back, the new growth was also cancerous.

I do not know exactly at what point of his illness he began serious medical treatment.. What I do know, is that in my last conversation with him, he told me that he was at Flag when his liver stopped working and his body became toxic.

I cannot say if he knew how truly ill he was before that point. He played down his illness a lot during our talk, and continually praised LRH's tech for him being alive at all.

He spoke about going to going for some experimental treatments at a homeopathic clinic in Germany. I had also recommended a few doctors I knew in the Berlin area. However, he died before he could get any more treatment.

End of story, a few weeks after our last conversation, he died. I was continually trying to contact him, obviously, I failed, I finally found out about his death by writing to him over Facebook (which we had never used for private contact) His sister then informed me of his death in mid-June.

I think we are given enough minutes to satisfy what we need to do here, but we will never get enough minutes to satisfy what our loved ones need to do and say to us.

I am glad he had faith till the end, it really doesn't matter what the faith was, it gave him peace when he was in need of it.

First of all, thank you all for your postings here.
I am sure that Ole's his wife and son, would appreciate it very much
if they were not still "in."

When we all started in SCN, at one point, we were all very idealistic.
We believed for a while (some longer, some shorter) that there was
a way to create a "better race" of humans, who had lost their
"reactive" minds (Sorry for using LRH here).

We were all sold a "bill of goods" about becoming "at cause" over the
physical universe the higher you went up the bridge.
Ole never stopped believing that.

He dedicated his life, his money, and his numerous talents to going
up the "Bridge To Total Freedom." He wanted to become a C/S to help
others do the same. At the end, this finest of gentlemen got trapped in
the prison of the tech and it killed him.

Ole was the kind of person that I always wanted to be.
He deserved a much better life than the one that he chose for himself.
He certainly did not deserve to die the way he did.

I called another one of my friends (an "OT3") in Munich yesterday,
to tell her about Ole's death. She was as devastated as I was.

There is no "WIN" in Ole's death. However, if my telling my friends who
are still in, or posting it here can help others understand that there is
no "Bridge to Total Freedom." The only person who can "free" you, is YOURSELF,
then at least Ole will have helped OTHERS go free.... although never in the way he imagined it.

Again, I thank you all.

My deepest sympathies to you for your profound loss. 48 is way too young for a family man and a man who is loved and respected and whose warmth is needed in this cold cold world.

Do take consolation in that Ole's involvement in Scn was motivated by good, intentions though you strongly believe that he was misguided by Scn. His efforts may have served him and the world better if they were invested elsewhere. Unfortunately, we will never know this because a divine power has taken him away. It is always the good ones that are taken away, too soon. Excuse the expression, only the good die young!
Ole is a very talented musician and I managed to listen to two songs: - Listen to the rain, River. They are pretty songs with nice lyrics.

Sorry for your loss. I hope my humble words are of comfort to you during your darkest hour. I like to extend my condolescences to his family and his friends too.

Mark so sorry to hear of the loss of your friend.

My apologies for only finding this thread just now as have been busy(Co$,Family,Media).

It's gut-renching losing good friends young, with family left behind.

I hope you are taking it well yourself and it has helped in some positive way for reflection and good memories together.

On a side note it is great to see you still posting here and at times like these it's wonderful to see the community show thier true, genuine support.

When I remember old friends or colleagues especially on days like today I listen to this as it reminds of many things:
