"The Hubbard Fair Game Paradox".
A cult leader writes sacred scriptural "policy" that mandates "lying to and tricking" others in order to continue selling billions of dollars of non-existent superpowers and miracles.
When the pathological lying and treachery is exposed, the cult leader publicly cancels that particular sacred scripture and earnestly states he will no longer lie to and trick others. At that moment, a cynical journalist asks the cult leader why anyone should believe that he isn't still lying and tricking when he claims he stopped lying and tricking.
The cult leader calmly responds: "I see your point. But surely there must be some way of gaining your trust and demonstrating to you that I am no longer lying to you and tricking you. Just tell me, what can I do to prove to you that I stopped lying?"
The journalist thinks and say: "Well in case you do not know me, my last name is Walton and my trust from the Walton/Walmart dynasty was just released to me today on my 50th birthday. So I now have 10 billion dollars cash in my bank account. I am willing to give you 9 billion dollars right now if you honestly answer one question."
The cult leader's eyes widen and he immediately blurts out: "Sure, that would not be any problem at all!"
The journalist asks: "I will give you the 9 billion dollars but only if you honestly answer whether I will actually get supernatural, magical and miraculous super-powers by doing your bridge to total freedom. If you don't lie I'll hand you a cashiers check for 9 billion dollars today. However if you lie, I will know it and not give you the 9 billion."
"But how would you know if I am lying?" asks the guru.
"Trust me, I'll know. I'll explain it later but right now you have 30 seconds, just answer the question."
The cult leader struggles until the 29th second and then states: "Yes of course you will get miraculous superpowers."
The journalist laughs, and says: "Okay, you got me. You won the 9 billion. I promised to pay it to you today and I will. Right now I will leave here and go directly to my bank to get that cashiers check. You are required to stay here in this room for one hour, after which you then only need to meet me at my bank to pick up the check."
"Okay, that sounds great. Just tell me the name and address of your bank and I'll meet you there."
The journalist replies: "Oh, that's easy. You have all the miraculous powers of an OT, so after i leave this room and go get in a taxi, just exteriorize and follow me and you'll see what bank I go to. If you can't do that I'll know you lied about the superpowers and thus won't owe you the $9 billion. But of course you didn't lie, so this will not be any problem for you. And that's how you prove to me that you are no longer tricking me and lying to me, right?"
With that the journalist leaves the room and the guru remains seated somewhat shell-shocked, motionless in his chair, saying and doing nothing. Just like the paranormal "ability gained" that Scientology bestows at the very lowest courses and from the very highest OT levels. "The ability to be there and do nothing."
