Being and nothingness: And now we move on to Scientology's Operating Thetan Level Four! - 2014-01-14
Bruce Hines Claire Headley and Bruce Hines are taking us on our journey to train as Scientologists. Claire spent years working with Scientology's "tech," and was trusted to oversee the auditing of Tom Cruise. Bruce was in Scientology for 31 years and spent about half that time as a senior case supervisor. Go here to see the first part in this series.
After our holiday break, it's time to get back to moving up the Bridge to Total Freedom! When we left off in December, Claire and Bruce had taken us all the way through Operating Thetan Level Three and L. Ron Hubbard's epic handwritten tale about the galactic genocidal warlord, Xenu. This week, it's on to OT 4, but initially we're going to look at "old" OT 4, which Claire tells us she didn't experience.
BRUCE: like Claire I never did the old version of OT 4, nor did I study it. After the release of Dianetic Clear and NOTs in September, 1978, very few people did this older version of OT 4. And after about 1982, no one did it at all. In fact, these days, of the OT levels, only OT 2 and OT 3 are the same as their original versions.
