Could well be true, my point is that you've got to be careful about using real world indicators as a yardstick for spiritual advancement. Someone once said to me (at a meeting for Independents in the UK) that people who are most successful at accumulating MEST, and therefore who look most successful in our materialistic culture, are those who are most in agreement with MEST; if true, that could be why so many spiritually inclined people have problems with money. (It also explains why the comedian Harry Enfield's empty-headed "Loadsamoney" character had a ring of truth for many).
Back to the state of Clear. I think we're all agreed that the end phenomena Hubbard was claiming for the state in DMSMH were a pipedream (total recall, etc.), so we need a new set. I can't think of one better than Pilot's and so far no one here has suggested one as far as I can see.

Royal Prince Xenu; I agree, and it's true of rock music as well. There's a story in Dan Baker's book "What Happy People Know" about a seriously depressed rock star (unnamed) who only recovered his mental health when he quit touring big stadiums and went back to playing in small clubs. He's poorer now but a lot happier.
The book's worth reading btw;
