    Default The Pilot, Excerpts from his Writings

    The Pilot, Excerpts from his Writings -- Introduction

    Ken Ogger was known as “The Pilot” and used this name so the “Church” (of Scientology) could not “get at him”. He was quite a prominent figure in the independent movement (establishing Scientology outside of the “Churches” control) from the issue of his book SuperScio in 1997 to 2000. He also issued a book Self Clearing and also a Scientology Reformers Home Page and he made fortnightly postings to the Internet news groups and alt.religion.scientology. The Pilot died in 2007.

    It is highlights (excerpts) from these fortnightly postings which will mainly appear on this thread, together comments in accordance with the rules of Ex Scientologist Message Board.

    I will be posting once a week, on Wednesdays, and have already sent 13 issues out on the thread The old days - Aboard the Apollo – 1973 . You will find the 13th issue at ;
    The contents of the Pilot's Postings is varied, and a friend of mine has made a quite deep study of them, and helped me in selecting what I will be sending out. Though if you have a gem amongst them, let me know and I might include in the cavalcade.

    The full set of Pilot's Posts (except perhaps the last one) is at and on this you will also find The Pilot (A Brief Overview).

    In the hope of being able to avoid confusion between my numbering of these reposts of excerpts, and the numbering of the original posts, I have added a “Z” before the numbers of my excerpt reposts. Thus the current one is Pilot'sPost Z13 . I am also sending these out to three internet lists, one of which you (or your friends) can join if you would prefer to have formatted copies of these posts sent to you email address. You join at:

    Default Pilot'sPost Z14 OT Research – Affinity Defined, Wavelength Drill

    Pilot'sPost Z14

    OT Research – Affinity Defined, Wavelength Drill

    From Post 26 -- March 1998


    I've made a tech breakthrough.

    Not the whole shooting match, but another piece of the puzzle.

    I began by trying to expand the Axioms and it yielded a wild
    little trick that doubles exterior perception.

    And the trick is easy to learn. I coached two people through
    it in a few minutes after explaining the theory and both got
    it easily and experienced the same effect that I got from it.

    Note that the trick is an amplifier rather than a method for
    turning on exterior perceptics [perceptions].

    If you don't already have some slight degree of exterior
    perception (usually mixed in with lots of dub-in and imagination),
    then do chapters 1, 2, and 11 of Self Clearing, which should
    at least get you to the vague level that people used to
    get from old OT 5 and 6. [Self Clearing is downloadable from - get the 2004 edition, which was not available when this was written, AntEd]

    I'll get around to explaining the trick later in this post.
    You should be able to do it with a few minutes of drilling.
    But you need the underlying theory first. And the theory
    is really a lot more important than the trick anyway,
    because it might lead to a lot more.


    If you look over the Scientology Axioms, you'll see that
    we have a very detailed definition of Communication.

    Basically it is cause, distance, effect, with intention,
    attention, and duplication. In other words, we have 6
    components, and one of them, “intention” is a very active
    component that we drill with TR 8 and it seems like one
    of the significant factors in OT abilities.

    We do not have a definition of Affinity that is of
    comparable magnitude, with components that can be
    drilled and used. And yet we know that it is a basic of
    great importance.

    I began by looking for an active factor in Affinity,
    something comparable to "intention" in the definition
    of communication.

    And I thought of having two tuning forks with matching
    pitches, and you strike one and the other vibrates in
    sympathy with it. This is a high school physics experiment
    and you can find the effect described in any good textbook.

    And if you raise the dampers on a piano (step on the right
    pedal) and hit a note, other strings which are harmonics
    of it (an octave above and below etc.) with also start
    vibrating slightly. Again, this is just high school

    This could be referred to as “resonance”. It is motion
    in sympathy.

    And I thought of a mother rocking a child. A sharing
    of motion. It builds affinity. The same for sex.

    And then there is matching tones on the emotional tone
    scale. If you think of these emotions as having
    wavelengths, again you have resonance.

    So let's begin by defining an axiom for resonance. Note
    that I'm using "axiom" in the popular sense (a basic
    principle) as did Hubbard rather than in the strict
    mathematical sense.


    Matching tones on the emotional tone scale is an example of
    resonance between beings. Sympathetic vibrations between
    piano strings or tuning forks is an example of resonance
    between physical object.

    I thought of the cause and effect sides of communication
    and felt that there should be something similar for affinity.
    After a bit of contemplation, it occurred to me that these
    would be “desire” and “acceptance” (thank you Allen).

    And of course liking and admiration would fit into it.

    And I felt that I should define it as an active thing.

    Putting this all together yields the following axiom.




    Of course most of this is old hat. We even know that
    duplicating motions as in mimicry tends to build affinity.

    But this idea of resonance opens the door to another
    level of practical application. And that brings us back
    to that trick I was talking about.


    I discussed resonance between beings and between objects,
    and that raises the question of resonance between a being
    and an object.

    Think of objects as having an inherent wavelength, a
    sort of musical note that they will respond to.

    A specific element will have electron shells at fixed
    distances from the nucleus. These are like frozen
    waves which have a wavelength. When we heat up a
    metal, it glows at a specific wavelength because of
    this. In physics, spectrums can be analyzed to precisely
    pin down the elements present in something based on this
    principle (spectrographic analysis). Again this is
    just textbook physics.

    Of course a complex object has many elements and should
    probably be thought of as a composite. But the
    oversimplified idea that an object will have a single
    basic vibration is actually good enough to start with.

    Here is the drill:

    a) pick an object

    b) imagine that you are sort of humming a note at it
    (this is done mentally, not by humming out loud)

    c) project this note into the object

    d) shift the note up and down until it matches vibrations
    with the object (you can feel this easily). Note that
    you don't have to hit the actual vibration, but just
    a harmonic of it, so it doesn't matter that much whether
    you use a high pitch or a low one, but it is important
    to slide up and down the scale by very small increments.

    e) permeate the object with the vibrations.

    Repeat this on a number of different objects.

    After you have assessed a few objects this way, matching
    vibrations, you should find that you can pretty much
    match wavelengths automatically without having to assess
    in detail.

    You should experience a startling increase in mental
    perception of an object whenever you hit it with a
    matching vibration, especially perceptions of the
    inside and far side of the object (it is a 3D perception
    rather than looking).

    Note that matching wavelengths goes way beyond simple
    permeation (I've played with that too).

    With hindsight, there are ideas like this in metaphysics.
    There is the idea in India of playing a specific musical
    note to heal somebody, and I've even heard mention of
    the idea that humming the correct note might enable one
    to move an object. And there is even Scriabin's idea
    that the ultimate musical composition would bring the
    world to fulfillment and allow it to end.

    When you first drill this, you can just look at an object
    or a wall and project a vibration at it. But once you
    get the knack of it, try it exterior in conjunction with
    any exteriorization drill that works for you.

    I think that you'll find that whenever you add in this
    vibration business, It's like turning on a light switch
    and your perception increases a notch.

    There is lots more that you can play around with. You
    can project broadband “roars” or play around with
    chords to match a series of wavelengths at once.


    Don't get into trying to prove things. Even with your
    perceptions raised a notch, it's still probably more
    dub-in than accurate data. You mustn't invalidate the
    half correct perceptions or they get weaker.

    Of course I ignored my own advise and tried to read
    some playing cards upside-down. I used 8 numbers (2 to
    9) in 4 suits to make calculations easy. I held each
    card up facing away from me and mentally roared vibrations
    at it until I had a clear visio of the card's face.

    The results were freaky. 50 percent accuracy on calling
    the suit. 25 percent accuracy on calling the number.
    Not one card seen correctly. Every perception a total
    dub in, but the suits and numbers were perceived at
    twice the level of random guessing.

    As a control, I dropped the mental roaring and the
    incorrect dubbed in perception and the accuracy immediately
    dropped to 25 percent on suit and around 12 percent
    on the number (the normal probability).

    It was crazy because I could only violate the mathematical
    probability by getting an obviously incorrect perception.
    I'd see a 7 of hearts clearly and it would be a 7 of
    clubs when I turned it over. Or I'd see an 8 or spades
    clearly and it would be a 3 of spades when I turned it
    over. But I'd be right on either the suit or the digit
    on about 3/4 of the cards.

    An hour of this and I was just about banging my head
    against the wall and getting exhausted and invalidating
    my perceptions because every damn visio was obviously
    wrong (I never ever saw the correct card, which was
    also contrary to chance because I should have accidentally
    gotten one right every 32 cards).

    That left me feeling quite frustrated, so I'm not going
    to try it again soon.

    And yet there was a consistent and dramatic violation
    of mathematical probability.

    I thought this over a bit.

    My first idea was that the true perception coming through
    must have been no more than a tiny flash of color or the
    shape of a single number and I was building an entire
    visio of a card based on that tiny signal of real data.

    But I talked this over with a friend and he suggested
    that it was more likely that I had gotten an accurate
    perception but something was overlaying it with an
    alter-is because there is some mechanism designed to
    block doing this with complete accuracy in this universe.

    There is more to be learned here.


    My thought right now is that there must be a dozen or
    so of these factors which sum up into the creation of

    One of them is intention. Another is resonance. Yet
    another is faith/belief. Each of these acts as significant
    amplifiers, and each one can be drilled individually
    and is fairly easy to master.


    I started thinking of affinity as a duplication of motion.

    So I reviewed the duplication in the communication formula
    and saw it as a duplication of data or content.

    And agreement would be a duplication of intention.

    By communicating, you might duplicate the fact that
    somebody else likes to fish, and yet you might not
    want to fish yourself. But you might duplicate the
    intention to fish and therefore come into agreement
    with them even if the two of you aren't talking.
    And you might both go fishing together and thereby
    duplicate the motion and come to feel more affinity
    for each other.

    These are 3 separate duplications. All 3 would be
    involved in a shared reality which I would see as
    a duplication of creation.

    From this comes the thought that the ARC triangle
    might be a limited perspective. Note that understanding
    seems to be a byproduct rather than the sum (complete
    ARC would be more than just understanding).

    And it should be obvious that agreement by itself
    may be a factor in reality but is not the sole
    determining criteria. After all, the majority of
    people once believed the Earth was flat (even though
    the educated people like Columbus knew better)
    and it continued to be round despite that.

    The real equation might be:

    Affinity plus Agreement plus Communication plus another
    half dozen unidentified factors all sum together to
    yield Reality.

    Or in other words, duplication of data plus duplication
    of motion plus duplication of intention plus duplication
    of various other things all sums up to duplication of
    creation (which is the reality of the physical universe).
    All this would be occurring on a compulsive level of course.


    As usual, finding an answer has left me with more questions.

    But the trick with resonance does work and the axiom on
    affinity has lots of implications.

    So have fun.

    Default Re: The Pilot, Excerpts from his Writings -- Ant's aims with this thread

    Dear reader of this, There have been a couple of messages on the “Apollo” thread (where the Pilot reposts were placed until the last one) concerning my putting the Pilot's excerpts on a blog.

    To make clear what my aim is, I'd like to backtrack a bit.

    On 25 Aug 1997 14:00:12 when the Pilot started sending out posts from a non-existent domain: there was a “tradition” or agreement in the “Church” of Scientology that one did not discuss Scientology or parts of Scientology (it is a separate discussion as to how this came about). From the point of view of discussion and exchanging viewpoints on Scientology, things were pretty dark (freedom of speech wise).

    And suddenly, like a shooting star illuminating a dark world for a brief moment the Pilot came forward, and carried on discussions with brave souls on Internet (some writing from email addresses that could not be traced). Realise that at that time Internet was not as diversified as now. I think the only area open to all people concerning Scientology were the two news groups he wrote to alt.religion.scientology and Internet was “new” then. He created quite a stir. By that time the discussion of details of Scientology was not only a supposed threat to the stability of the “standard” tech, it also was a strong threat to those who now held power in the so-called “Church”. And those in power, jealous of their monopoly, could not do a thing, as the Pilot cleverly (and possibly illegally) was unreachable from his hiddenplace non-existent domain.

    On 1 Jul 1999 04:00:18 In post 60 he announced: “Well its happened. My identity has finally been given to the org. So you might as well know it too. My name is Ken Ogger. I live in North Hollywood. And I have been in Dianetics and Scientology since 1965. I am posting my bio separately. As of this writing, I am still a Scientologist in good standing, we'll see how long they leave it that way now that my identity is known. The person who turned me in is my wife Ann Tordai.”

    In other words the “Church” could now get at him. There is no evidence as to if they did.
    But there is evidence that he stopped posting shortly after. And I have a large amount of written evidence that in 2000 he caved in. Caved in is a vague generalisation, but it will have to do for now. He decided that he was not fit to act as “The Pilot”.

    On 29th Nov 2000 he wrote to newsgroups:,alt.religion.scientology :

    “It is with great reluctance that I am announcing that the
    "Pilot" identity was destroyed by OSA and the CofS.

    “My policy has always been to forgive and forget, to push for
    gentle reforms, and to live and let live. And so I hoped
    to heal and recover and let this matter pass.

    “But it has been a year now and I have not recovered and there
    does not seem to be any way out but to abandon it all.

    “Right now I'm a pitiful shadow of who I was when I wrote
    Super Scio and Self Clearing. I put those out on the net
    for free and they will remain there for whomever can use
    them or get anything out of them. But I am no longer fit to
    evaluate their contents or further extend the work.

    “I can prove nothing of what happened to me. Consider this
    total delusion if you want. It is too incredible and
    unbelieveable and I would just sound paranoid if I started
    ranting about it.”

    So far as my main purpose is concerned, you could add the adjective concerning what he believed happened to him: irrelevant.

    The shooting star had ceased to illuminate the area. Why he caved in (to use the broad generalisation again) is not my concern here.

    On 28th May 2007 The Pilot, Ken Ogger committed suicide

    A brilliant man worked on Scientology staff and heard every tape he could lay his hands on.
    He then got a non Scientology job, having learned to do computer programming, and earned very good money at it.
    He originated to Scientologists from a hidden place.
    His wife gave him away and within a year he was a shadow of himself and was unable to continue his work.

    I am only writing this to make clear what my aims are in reposting excerpts from his posts. I disagree with some of the things the Pilot has said, some of it is beyond me and some seems irrelevant (to me). It is a broad area. He opened up the subject for discussion, and (I believe) helped some to look at rather than accept without questioning some of the data. In other words he opened the subject up for discussion when a cult of tabu on discussion, examination and thinking had spread its dark cloud.

    My aim on this and other areas is to pass on to some degree his spirit. The spirit of thinking, of discussion.

    So you can see, a blog where only I was able to post defeats my purpose. People should be able to comment on what the Pilot wrote. And a blog where I moderate each post is also failing somewhat in my purpose. Who am I to act as censor?

    You can help, by passing this on, or its location, to the many areas in the now well diversified “freeScientology” area (free from control of a suppressive body). Many contributions in small ways can move a mountain – and of course my contribution here is only part of a wider movement of making positive data and techniques available widely.

    Thanks for contributing.

    "Grandiosity is chiefly associated with narcissistic personality disorder, but also commonly features in manic or hypomanic episodes of bipolar disorder.

    It refers to an unrealistic sense of superiority, a sustained view of oneself as better than others that causes the narcissist to view others with disdain or as inferior. It also refers to a sense of uniqueness, the belief that few others have anything in common with oneself and that one can only be understood by a few or very special people."

    I would like it stated for the record that Ken Ogger, The Pilot committed suicide.

    Ken was a very nice and brave man but all this self auditing did him absolutely no good as he was delusional with reports of OSA anally raping him and other hallucinatory incidents.

    Those still severely indoctrinated believed Ken and believe he was murdered, but the fact show that he was a severely depressed and unhappy man that killed himself.

    You are certainly free to read his writings but you should know that it didn't work or help Ken in the end.
