Another Scientology monument to L. Ron Hubbard is going up in besieged Clearwater - 2019-02-17
Scientologists in Clearwater, Florida have been informed that the empty lot between the Super Power building and the parking garage can no longer be used for parking. The long wait is over, construction on L. Ron Hubbard Hall is about to start. We reported last year on the fundraising efforts to build the 4,000-seat theater, and we have a few more details about the project now that the project has been approved by the planning department. The hall will have more seating than the 2,180-seat Ruth Eckerd Hall usually rented for major Scientology events.
The lobby area will have a large number 8, or infinity symbol chandelier. Infinity turned on its side is the number 8, and L. Ron Hubbard defined its use in the book Scientology 8-8008. "The original definition of Scientology 8-8008 was the attainment of infinity by the reduction of the apparent infinity and power of the MEST universe to a zero for himself, and the increase of the apparent zero of one's own universe to an infinity for oneself."
