HD: Xemu's cruel response to overpopulated world
BY: STEPHEN KOFF
EX: It was like something out of a science fiction script - but L. Ron
Hubbard, the founder of Scientology, claimed it was fact.
""Xemu,"" he called the central character. Xemu ruled
Galactic Confederation 75-million years ago, when overpopulation was a
So Xemu solved the problem: He trapped selected beings and flew them
to volcanoes on Earth, then called Teegeeach. He then dropped powerful
H-bombs on the volcanoes. The beings were destroyed in a wall of fire.
However, their spirits, or ""thetans,"" weren"t.
Gathering them into
clusters, Xemu trapped the thetans in frozen alcohol and glycol.
Then he finished his cruel plan: He electronically implanted the
thetans so they would reproduce in subsequent generations of man and
cause sexual perversion and other abnormal behavior. The implants are
in us - each of us today.
Though such beliefs may seem far-fetched, Scientology documents show
they are part of upper-level Scientology training known as OT III,
short for Operating Thetan III. OT III is the third of 15 steps on
Scientology's advanced ladder, climbed by believers after reaching the
state of ""clear."" OT III training, which is supposed
to remove the
implants by revisiting the Xemu incident and breaking through the wall
of fire, is offered in Clearwater at a cost of $6,500, according to a
fall 1988 rate sheet.
Details of OT III are considered confidential. When church documents
describing Xemu surfaced during a 1985 trial in Los Angeles,
Scientology lawyers tried unsuccessfully to immediately seal them.
Gerald Armstrong, a former Scientologist who discovered that many of
Hubbard's credentials and claims were false, described in a court
document why the group so closely guards Xemu.
""In Scientology, people are told that if they read even part
story before they have progressed through all
the various lower Scientology steps, at the cost of tens of thousands
of dollars, their subconscious minds will be restimulated, and they
will "freewheel,""" Armstrong said. ""Their
mind will go out of
control, they will not be able to eat or sleep and they will die.""
A Hubbard memo obtained by Clearwater police said pneumonia may also
result, as the implants are calculated to kill by pneumonia anyone who
tries to ""solve"" them - sort of like a pharaoh's curse,
noted. That's why only properly applied training would succeed,
Armstrong said the Xemu story was identical to the screenplay for
Revolt in the Stars, a film written by Hubbard.
The film never got commercial financing and was not released.

If the Borg were to breed with the Ferengi you'd get Scientology!

"the Court is now convinced that the primary motivation of RTC in suing
Lerma, DGS and The Post is to stifle criticism of Scientology in general
and to harass its critics. "

"Scientologists believe that most human problems
can be traced to lingering spirits of an extraterrestrial
people massacred by their ruler, Xenu, over 75 million
years ago. These spirits attach themselves by "clusters"
to individuals in the contemporary world, causing
spiritual harm and negatively influencing the lives
of their hosts"
[Judge Leonie Brinkema 4 Oct 96 Memorandum Opinion]
What do we get from getting people out of scientology?
We create an individual who has become a Houdini of
all mind traps.. folks who won't be fooled again.
People who can DE-program, People who can spring mental
We create, by freeing someone of scientology, a being
who has the ability to break the strongest slave chains
