    Paul,

    I must say that as a computer geek I considered this idea many years ago, but I guess it took someone with better knowledge of the tech to actually pull it off. I'm very impressed with this stuff, please keep at it.

    Who knows, you may clear the planet!

    Thank you very much. Yes, that is actually my plan.

    My definition of "a clear planet" is along the lines I stated earlier, and has nothing to do with people buying services. Just for any non-techie readers, Rub & Yawn is not in the least a Scn procedure, although the session forms are obviously Scn-based, and various aspects can be found in Hubbard's works. The 6-direction part and most of the variations came directly from R. Ducharme's R3X. I don't give him more credit in writing, or even spell out his full name, because he doesn't want his non-Scn pcs to associate what he does with Scn because of its sucky PR. I did credit him originally in my Robot pages but he wanted his name removed.

    It reminds me of group processing.

    Yes. I started doing the YouTube videos straight after doing 51 thirty-minute group processing sessions on Skypecast. I did those sessions live, but apart from the two-minute question-and-answer period at the end I was basically just reading through a script, with the occasional mention of visible screen names to show that it was live. I realized that it wasn't a very efficient use of my time to read a script in real time, especially when I didn't know if the one or ten people online even spoke English, so I took the next step.

    TV and radio broadcasting of sessions would be ideal. Except they seem to be illegal.

    Really? Illegal?

    The thought of that did give me a great idea for a scene. The Church of Scientology has taken over the world and every day, right after "muster", Senior C/S Int gives group processing sessions to the whole planet via the two-way TeleView.

    The sessions, of course, are mandatory and anyone with BI's at session end must report to their local RTC outlet for handlings at their own expense.

    I see helicopters and deserted streets. Kinda like downtown Clearwater. But dirtier, with old "The Auditor" tabloids blowing like tumbleweed through the gutters.

    My hero will work in the Ministry of Truth, in the Photoshop Department.

    I wrote to one of my Ecademy contacts who runs an online radio station with 60,000 subscribers and asked if she would like to broadcast one of my sessions in an appropriate slot, and mentioned what I thought would fit from having looked over the choices in her programming.

    She responded that getting viewers to do meditation etc. was illegal. So I did some hunting around and found the Ofcom Broadcasting Code in the UK. Have a look at Section 2 - Harm and Offence here. It's not long. I can imagine there are similar laws in the US: I didn't bother to check.

    I think it's the hypnotic element that's the cause for verbot. It's bad enough when college kids get into self/auto/small-group hypnosis because there *are* potential pitfalls inherent in people *not* successfully getting 'out of session'.

    Back in the 80s I remember reading an article about a fad of 'group hypnotism' in Israel that led to some very serious mental problems for people.

    Anyway, I suspect the 'no broadcast meditation' rule is a wise limitation.

    Exactly. The ban on hypnotists doing their full patter to the camera was good enough for me.

    I didn't see me getting very far with an argument along the lines of "But, Your Honor, what I do isn't hypnotism!"

    I was speaking to a friend on the phone this evening and she was telling me how she audited a non-Scn friend without a computer at the weekend by playing one of my YouTube videos aloud on her computer and holding the telephone next to the speakers and having the friend on the other end of the phone line execute the commands!

    Ingenious. That was one use I hadn't expected. It worked too!
