Never before seen: Video of a woman moments after achieving superhuman Scientology powers - 2017-10-05
Today's story, Bunker readers, is going to test you. On Saturday, we debuted some fascinating and rare footage from home video of a Scientology event — the 1989 L. Ron Hubbard Birthday Celebration aboard Scientology's private cruise ship, the Freewinds.
The footage was shot by a group of Florida Scientologists who had gone to the ship to complete "OT 8" — the highest auditing level on the "Bridge to Total Freedom." It takes huge donations of money over many years to reach the top of Scientology's Bridge. Marc Headley has estimated that to go from the most basic introductory course to OT 8 will cost anywhere from $500,000 to $2 million. And as for how long it may take, Vicki Marshall revealed recently on an episode of Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath that it took her 18 years just to complete OT 7.
So this is a big deal for Scientologists, and this group wanted to document it on video. They taped, for example, several graduation speeches given by mighty thetans who had completed OT 8.
