Bingo! Spot on!Yeah, I wasn't going to mention that but one problem they have to overcome is the vast vast majority of the BC, most of the tapes, are all about GPMs and the various 3DXX iterations. Of course none of that is currently in use, except on the alternate route, which is solo audited. So I have to imagine a GAT II version of the BC would cut out a lot of the GPM stuff. But the BC is supposed to be a chronological study so you can't just cut everything out.... I'm sure they are trying to make the BC faster but how do you cut stuff out and still call it a chronological study? Even if most of it has zero relevance to modern grade chart auditing.
I invested two decades into it, so I must have been "getting gains," or I wouldn'tYes....I really did get "gains" from the tapes.
Davey never did SHSBC or above, as far as I know, and yet is operating as senior Tech terminal. That had to have created some cognitive dissonance among the old Class XII's.From my point of view - If someone is "trained" in Scientology, that normally comes with a mandate and some informal authority. Class VI's and VIII's were the ones that "knew the tech" is how I remember it.
Thus, they are a threat, always was I imagine, David was never a Div 4 or 5 person himself was he?
I agree that it is absolutely relevant to the thread!!I've mentioned this before but I think it's relevant to this thread. In Karen Schless Presley's book "Escaping Scientology" she talks about being with David Miscavige in his private office at Int Base when he said to her: "We can't get people to pay for Scientology services. But we can get them to give plenty of money to the IAS for nothing".
She also describes the expensive furniture in his office as being specially built to fit his small physique and he had a cupful of a dozen Mont Blanc pens on his desk. He also had a private 70,000 square foot office building, homes around the United States and overseas, $10,000 suits, lavish gym equipment and so on. Apparently his inner circle said he "deserved it" because he was COB of RTC.
Scientology uses the "buttered all over the universe" approach to mind control as to what is the latest and biggest "big deal" to promote.It was a big deal in the 90's too. I was in the midst of that in my first org staff life. It was a big god-danged deal. We did all sorts of special drilling in order to get that across to people. There were campaigns using "Reasons To Train", there were all kind of programs done to "Booming An Org Through Training."
Halyards humming in the wind, and we're away!! I think that may be a line from the ref.
Is the "Basics" now the new training! Does that supplant the training lineup from SH to CLV Grad. I don't even think there is a CL V Grad checksheet anymore, actually. We needed someone to get PDH detection and handling auditing but didn't have a trained auditor, nor could we train one. had to send to another org.
DISCLAIMER : You know I am unserious about the tek being real, and all of the tek handlings being real things. I am just incredulous that they dropped what was once the backbone of the bridge. At least the left side backbone!!
I mean no offense, Dotey, but to have a "back bone of the bridge, there has to be a real bridge to spritual freedom....they dropped what was once the backbone of the bridge. At least the left side backbone!! And no one still there has noticed?????
Figurative backbone. Real if you are in still, but it is what it appears to be by those who know better.I mean no offense, Dotey, but to have a "back bone of the bridge, there has to be a real bridge to spritual freedom. Seeing that in 65 years there is no such thing as a "Clear" or "OT" or anyone that has any super powers as advertised, promised and promoted, the Bridge is spineless.
Would you agree?
In my job, I often need to create documents. I can tell you that the final published document NEVER bears any resemblance to my initial notes. It's a process of revisions, comments by others, fixing wording, etc.There was some datum about how they elected to go about the project, which was to lay out docs (hand written; telexes; lol kleenex's; napkins, etc.) on tables arranged chronologically. There were pics, but we all know that any pic that is released by SCN INC is not fake, so who knows?? I can't specifically recall, but I believe that there was a reference made to redoing the tech vols, and the ado as a result of what was found during the semicolon wars.
The thing that comes to mind is sitting in the "BASICS - WOOHOO!!" event back around 2007, with fearless leader talking about doing battle with semicolons.

Can you imagine the morass? The horrors of someone trying to make sense of it all??
I think it likely he said "fuck it all, let's use the IAS. It's easy." Or maybe he said "I'll be a stripper."
.Just want to point out that the TECH Vols.....were republished.
There was an Event about around 1995 or 1996....at the Shrine.
I don't think anybody is training or auditing these days, at least not the general public, all missions and orgs are closed.Some great posts and speculation here.
I think the simplicity is that these days, and probably for some time, training does not have the same status that Clear/OT does. If you asked any Scientologist what would they rather be, Clear or a Class IV auditor and they will mostly all say Clear. If you asked OT vs trained I don't think anyone will say trained, they all want the OT super powers.
Add that to the fact that training takes some time and some effort (whether you believe in it or not, Scientology training does take some actual dedication/time/skill versus sitting in a chair answering questions) and it's pretty easy to see why training has become less popular. Also from the orgs stand point they buy a training package and then they are in the Academy training for at least a year, i.e. no more/new donations. They could use up a similar amount of auditing in a month or two.
Also I'm sure people don't like constantly redoing their training. While yes there has been some re-do stuff on the auditing side it generally isn't the same as all your certs are cancelled re-start from Student Hat. The only major cycle that I recall that matches it on the auditing side is when everyone got told they weren't Clear and had to re-do their lower bridge. I'm not going to go into that too much but I will add that the reason they all had to do it at Flag at Class IX rates is simple. They were already OT and had been exposed to the OT material, so even though they weren't Clear they had the OT data. No way was a lower classed auditor/C/S/org going to handle them, not when they'd already been exposed to the OT data. I know some people were already refusing to re-train after GAT I came out and I'm sure GAT II only added to those numbers.
These days the only people really training are those in the SO or Staff who are training to be auditors or for some tech post. Though I have heard of some people being required to train before doing OT levels.
I'm not sure about why the rest of the training stuff hasn't been released, Grad V/BC etc. I have some speculation but really it's just speculation.
Two reason I can think of.My Saint Hill Special Briefing Course in 1971 was a meandering labyrinth of Goals Problems Mass tapes with 3G criss cross procedures and goal finding and whole track goal finding and how one opposed one's own goals etc.etc.
Then after all the clay demos, after all the indoctrination and digesting it all......
Hubbard announced all Goals, All GPM plots were IMPLANTED !
You had not found your ACTUAL goal.
No one found their ACTUAL goal.
Only IMPLANTED goals were uncovered.
And from then on Hubbard did in fact point more and more to IMPLANTS, arguably obsessively.
Whole Track Psychiatrists were the WHO of having any case at all.
OT 2 is all implants.
OT 3 is the 75 million year ago implant
NOTS is handling the Body Thetans that were mostly the victims of these implants.
Does anyone wonder why it is all "SECRETIVE" and under wraps and "CONFIDENTIAL" til you are READY?
Til RTC and OSA give you ELIGIBILITY to trust you not to share such secrets with anyone ?
