Blog: Scientology Knows Drama - 2014-10-08
That phrase keeps coming to mind when I see the TNT ad "we know drama". TNT, you have nothing on scientology. Seems sort of oxymoronic, doesn't it? Scientology's entire mission purports to be to remove dramatization from the psyches of adherents, and ultimately from all of humankind's psyches. Yet, by observation there are no more drama obsessed people than scientologists.
I was not going to post this essay for the foreseeable future. However, I came across this item from FOX 411 recently, Lewis on Cruise. Most of this essay was drafted prior to me seeing this latest scientology, well, drama. When you get to the end of the post you will understand why this news prompted me to push the 'post' button.
One of the favorite sayings of scientologists to express disdain towards someone is 'he is just dramatizing.' It is used to label any behavior that is not upbeat, Stepford or Truman Show like, positivity. It has its source in the mind 'technology' presented by L. Ron Hubbard. Hubbard teaches that we are all the unknowing effect of previous moments of pain and unconsciousness, called 'engrams.' To a scientologist, the poor, unknowing non-scientologist doesn't even realize that a great percentage of his behavior, his choices, and his actions are really to greater or lesser degree 'dramatizations' of the emotions and post-hypnotic commands buried in engrams.
