Scientology's "Super Power Rundown:" What is it, Anyway? - 2012-01-11
Prepare to unleash your super self! Secrets ahead! On Monday and Tuesday, we released previously unseen renderings and architectural drawings of what Scientology's $100 million "Flag Mecca" -- also known as the "Super Power Building" -- is going to look like when it finally opens. (The building will open "soon," according to the church. Go here for a basic primer on Scientology.)
As we explained Monday, it was a new counseling process that L. Ron Hubbard came up with in 1978 -- the Super Power Rundown -- that eventually resulted in current church leader David Miscavige breaking ground in 1998 on the massive new building.
Drawings show that it's on the building's fifth floor that special equipment is being installed to help deliver the "Super Power" process -- equipment that includes an "oiliness table," a "smell wall," and a pain station, among other oddities.
