Thanks for posting your views. I don't think there is much disagreement between us.
First - the red highlighted portion. I know from what I've read and been told that this was done intensively to people. However where I lived and did my Scio there was none of this. Not on me by another, nor by me on others, nor every other flow.
Second: "It's a self-created maze of the mind, of the spirit, with no exit." If you do it wrongly - other-determinedly - then this will become true for you.
Third: "And it all ends the same as Hubbard ended - screaming at BTs in one never-ending nightmare.
Those rewards are all available outside the maze - and much, much more. And freedom. "
This I disagree with. I myself have never 'screamed at BTs'. To do so is VERY poor form for an auditor. I always audited them for their benefit and things went well for me. And them. The idea that one needs to "get rid" of Bs and Cs expresses an attitude towards them which (a) has no place in auditing, and (b) is not contained n the original OT-3 materials AFAIK.
BTW, a friend sent me this little excerpt from a poem by Longfellow:
I have read, in the marvellous heart of man,
That strange and mystic scroll,
That an army of phantoms vast and wan
Beleaguer the human soul.
Cute, isn't it?
As far as the statement of "those rewards are available outside of the maze" is concerned - I have looked at many and never found one that is not itself a direct derivative of Scientology. And let me say too that there have been some excellent derivatives of Scientology.
