Blog: Ingrid Smith Creates an Oasis in LA - 2011-03-26
When I was a kid there was a lot of talk of Russia bombing us. One day at my school we were marched into the auditorium to watch a movie about that very threat. It ended with a nuclear explosion going off and the people in the vicinity quickly disintegrating to skeletal form and then nothing. That was pretty scary.
The scariest movie that I saw as a kid though was "The Invasion of the Body Snatchers". This was about people in a small town whose bodies are taken over by cold emotionless aliens. The theta in the town was disappearing-no more friendly grocer, the chatty neighbor or the caring teacher. I found that terrifying. They looked the same on the outside, but inside they were somebody else and somebody you didn't want to meet.
Even at an early age I found the destruction of the spirit more horrible than the body. I understood why when I got into Scientology. Thetans have been on a long dwindling spiral from suppression and implants. It is what is done to the Thetan, not the body that destroys him the most.
