RIP Paul Adams

I understand folks emotions for Paul, but logically he was just a pawn in Hubbard's game, like we all were.

Not sure why you are studying pre-socratic, you ought to be studying rhetoric, and specifically how Hubbard learned to write, that was thru his Dean Wilbur, and he learned how to write by applying what Dean Wilbur wrote in his book "English Rhetoric". That's the course Hubbard took at GWU while in college, and also mentioned in his letter to Dean Wilbur.

As you said and Paul said, I am a future researcher, and am documenting. Here is Dean Wilbur letter:

Great letter Riddick, thanks.
Rhetoric study, I never was smart enough to understand why that was a correct step. I am way sub par to grasp your wiser comments.
All I know in hindsight about all of Scientology, was Hubbard unknowingly or semi knowingly was playing out roles from his adventure story themes, on himself. Pushing his wishful thinking reality on others with the result he left a lot of people holding the bag, agreed I was one, that's a tragedy of Hubbard's building this ludicrous subject (Xenu's earth dump of body-thetans requiring OT 3, 4, 5, 6 and 7 exorcism by Scientologists today).

Paul Adams will be missed as one in the ex Scientology critic/history world, greatly.

Here's my original tread on the exscientology message board, and timeline you might say.

Two of the three links below are down. Perhaps someone can find a mirror of Paul's Rabbit. (It also contains other content.)

During the early days of ESMB Alan Walter and Dart Smohen were active posters. Both had been at St. Hill during the early 1960s, and both had been on the first Class 8 course on the Royal Scotsman.

Paul Adams compiled and organized these posts in e-book form as part of Paul's Rabbit eBooks. A lot of ground is covered having to do with the origins of various parts of Scientology.

Link to The Real Story by Dart Smohen

Link to reincarnation quotes originally posted by Alan Walter. Videos have been added.

Paul Adams posted on ESMB as Dulloldfart, and had been a course supervisor and auditor at both St. Hill in England and at the AO in Los Angeles, if I recall correctly.

Paul created Paul's Robot Auditor and also many videos which are scattered about the Net, and should be located and consolidated.

Here are a few:

Paul's other posts on old and new ESMB are worthy of their own e-book.

We have to ask ourself, did Paul's work actually help anybody? This is a logos, or logical, question. Is there proof? Or was his time spent for not?

Yes, it helped many people.

This is not the place, or the occasion, to demand proof.

There are many glowing testimonials.

This is a memorial thread.

Please be respectful.

Paul just about saved me, really... post Scientology, with his tech.
Thank you Paul. Where ever you maybe.

add on: Specifically in scientology speak- Paul's tech gave me back what scientology hijacked or took. My real flow 0. My ability to knowingly solve things myself 100 percent of the time. Only I evaluate for me once again. Also Paul's tools helped me revisit some of the scraps never taken up that should have been a long time ago. When I do take something up now it's never someone else's carrot to chase but an occasional desire or need to look and quickly resolve something that important to me and only me.

I'm the only one who's experienced my life so why not I consult myself. I'm sure you can get the idea....

I think you're all grand too! You've all been very helpful.
Sharing your experience and perspective has been and is helpful.
Decoding or laying bare how propaganda and mind control works , LRH style took some working through. The old sock (LRH ) fooled me for a little while anyways...

Being-
Ex staff, Org and Missions/ public / work study 1980s Manor. Worked along; RPFers, EPFers, SIPRO, Renovations for Celebs: JT, Presely, Jeff Pomerance, I think Leah was a teen running around the manor with friends back then too , If I'm not mistaken etc. I've lived my fare share of rice and beans, mission pay, and 30 years of hope smashed. You all and Paul have help me work through the aftermath. Thank you

Man oh man we had High Hopes!!!!!!!

I reached my purpose and goal for joining in the first place - Afterleaving;
To be a better person and really helping in every moment making my life and others better in some way.

Life lessons are like fresh picked berries. Eat the good ones or share them and toss the bad ones.

You're all worth every moment of every day and as the old saying goes; worth your weight in gold and then some.

Jeffrey Pomerantz - now, that guy was a real piece of work.
