Operating Thetan is defined as: "knowing and willing cause over life, thought, matter, energy, space and time". So how OT was L. Ron Hubbard, the universe's #1 OT? First things first. Did Ron actually evidence to anyone in a reliable scientific way that HE himself was an Operating Thetan? Did he demonstrate that he could operate exterior from the body with perception? Did he show anyone his presser and tractor beams? Did he heal bodies, his own or others, with turning black energy white or any other ways? Did he manifest whole track recall that enabled him to find billions of buried treasure? Did he use his whole track recall to patent life-saving medical technology? Did he use past-life intergalactic knowledge to eliminate disease, environmental problems, automobile pollution, poverty or world hunger? Did he show engineers how to build faster and more fuel-efficient passenger vehicles, public transportation or airplanes?Did he show his mind technology healing the sick or curing the insane? Did he ever have one OT tested by an impartial fact-finding study (i.e. scientific authentication)? Did he use his why-finding, debug, correction, qual or recovery technology to recover the vast majority of Scientologists who had left Scientology? It is clear that he did not do any of these things. Yet, one might still conclude that Ron did in fact possess these OT capabilities yet CHOSE to not reveal them directly. Assuming that could (in theory) be true, there is another way to observe OT phenomena and behavior and that is by simply looking at Ron's personal & professional life.... So, how OT was his personal & professional existence? Reader's Warning: This is a cold-blooded and factual account of Ron's less-than-OT life....at least a few key points to give you the idea that besides not SHOWING his OT abilities, neither did he USE his OT abilities in his own life to be cause on his Dynamics, because..... *** His own wife and #2 OT on the planet, Mary Sue Hubbard, went to prison. *** He spent much of his last two decades on earth hiding from authorities. *** He failed to cure his own body many times and died as an ordinary mortal. *** He used force, threats, cruelty and violence to gain obedience from Scientologists. *** He regularly declared or fair gamed moral, honest people who exposed his lies or crimes. *** His own OT sons turned against him. One even met tragic death by suicide/murder. *** He lied about his "doctor & nuclear physicist" credentials and healing his war injuries and never admitted it. *** He played shell games with parishioner millions, taking it personally and lying to them about it. *** He failed to Clear any world, continent, country, city, town, street or even block. *** He failed to provide his own elite Sea Organization members with even poverty levels of food, sleep, medical care, vacations, retirement benefits and pay. *** He was unable to bring all of the worldwide Scientology org staff members up to even minimum wage or to advance them to his upper OT levels. *** He failed to create broad acceptance of Scientology in any one culture, government or country. *** He failed to prove that Scientology worked or even attempt to do so under scientific conditions. *** He failed to make his salvation technology affordable to more than 99% of the world's population. *** He was not able to appear publicly despite his wish to clear his legal problems and do so. *** He was not able to have his screenplays or books become successful movies although he tried. *** He was not able to reach "best seller" status on his fiction books without cheating and having wealthy scientologists help him trick the system by buying large volumes. *** He was unable to maintain a healthy body weight, stop smoking or get proper dental care for rotting teeth. *** He was not able to conduct his operations transparently and honestly but instead resorted to secret illegal tactics, intimidation, fair game and other criminal means to get what he wanted. *** He was unable to keep industrious, energetic people, honest people as his friends and staff; the vast majority of which were wrong-targeted as the "why" for a problem which Hubbard himself created; they then blew, were declared, fair-gamed or otherwise turned into enemies. *** He was unable to prevent himself or his own organization from committing felonies for which it's facilities were raided by the FBI with his top management indicted and imprisoned. *** He was unable to admit that he was in charge of Scientology, instead lying and using "advices" and other covert methods to avoid adding to his already overwhelming liabilities. *** He was not able to recognize, acknowledge & compensate when others created technology that advanced Scientology. *** He was unable to receive or benefit by any personal, technical advice or other constructive criticisms. *** He was unable to speak truthfully about his case and human condition, instead opting to pretend to be OT. So, what does it all mean? It means nothing...except this: OT's have the ability to consider they are OT at which moment they become OT. Thus you can BE an OT. But that's all. Be. Ron is in outer space right now working out the tech of how you can DO what an OT is supposed to be able to do and to have what an OT is supposed to be able to have. Just be happy that it only costs 1/3 of a million dollars to get 1/3 of the way to OT!
