Mr. Spock articulates the nature of LRH’s magical subjectivism—that something is real only by experience and consent. Spock holds up the inconsistent physics of their recent experience as proof that the world is an illusion. Surprisingly, this fact doesn’t make much of a difference, for an illusion that is believed-in is al...Read More

Anything is possible as long as you:
- Live inside the placebo.
- Perform abreaction religiously.
Why does abreaction work? Actually, we do not know that abreaction itself is helpful. What does help is the rapport and affinity between therapist and patient. Just communicating with someone is therapeutic. Primates secrete...Read More
CSH: Scientological counseling is just as effective as Freudian and Rogerian. Why? Because it turns out that they did a meta-analysis of journal articles that measure the efficacy of different schools of psychology—CBT, Rogerian, Freudian, Jungian, Adlerian—all the different schools. They tried to see which one was most effective.
These sys...Read More
CSH: This is a really good metaphor. Agreement is the counterforce of mass.
Mass is a counterforce to my physical effort, while empty space is the lack of counterforce. Effort always has as its goal some change in motion. Mass resists change in motion. Resistance to change in motion is...Read More
How far does (the dominion of) the (unified) self extend? It’s arbitrary. It could be zero, an illusion resulting from the convergence of non-self processes, as it is in Buddhism. [Still, this self is full of concern and interest. It strives and works to fulfill its striving. The self is a...Read More
CSH: So now I see the anxiety built into the interest that is the humanities because it has too much of emotion and subjectivity. And also it seems uncertain. You can’t make convincing correlations between inventions when you feel responsible, when you feel the contingency of the meaning on your m...Read More
People with compulsive social anxiety, and people who call themselves “skittish” and “shy” are dealing with feelings—sensations. Specifically, they compulsively feel a fear-pain in their abdomen when in the presence of others. Butterflies. Stage fright. I just wanted to point out that the thing, the concrete motivator, is a biological motivator meant for ...Read More
CSH: Seeing your body as an avatar, or as a first person POV body in a 3-D video game, or even as a third person body, gives you more power over life.
When you play a game, you don’t think that you are the piece that you control in the g...Read More
And you find out this fellow’s, when trying to say, “Where is the future?” he has always understood that the future had a location and that the past had a location. And in baffled contemplation of no location, he’s of course assumed both of them and put them in his body. A...Read More
anchor point: an assigned or agreed-upon point of boundary, which is conceived to be motionless by the individual; one of the points which demarcate the outermost boundaries of a space or its corners for an individual. —PDC 2 Approved Glossary

The basic method of Scientology is to find areas of life in which people fail and suffer.
Also, there’s lots of nice metaphysics and preliminary postulates. For example:
- Life is a game.
The empowering gnostic myth is that we are all-powerful souls that voluntarily came into this problem-filled life-game for...Read More
Rich: You can use your dissertation topic to devise a Universal Marketing Cookbook, which shows how certain phrases and images are correlated to certain emotions and intentions. Potentially, this could be used for mind control.
CSH: Marketing dreams of desire control. “Hunger for this.” How do we increase their sense of ...Read More
