Yes, I like these threads too for much the same reasons. It is very interesting when you read and feel the seriousness with which these people need to communicate.
It feels like a very distant echo now of my scio past ... I can sit here and read this type of thread and let it reverberate around me, and it has no effect whatsoever other than a kind of slightly embarrassed curiosity ... almost like viewing an injured alien being, that is in its death throes but is still trying to assert who is "really in control here" ... as it is clearly fading away.
I know that sounds melodramatic but that is how I view scientologists these days, they are like actors in an old black and white movie that I once knew the script to word for word, and even though technology has moved on (a lot) they are still reading, ever so seriously, from the very same battered and tattered handwritten dialogue and apparently are completely unaware of the audience quietly cringing ... for them.
Back to the real world.
