What is an Independent?

A number of people have asked what distinguishes an Independent from other Scientologists who have left the corrupt institution but still find worth in LRH tech.   San Diego Independent Murray Pearlman just supplied the best answer I’ve seen yet.  The explanation contains no words.  Watch it all the way through, the Independent doesn’t come in till the last minute.  We also just  happened to receive this update from Chrissie Pearlman in a comment on this blog  “If anyone was wondering about Shane and I. We are together and doing alright. Still heavy attacks on me and our relationship but we are holding strong and happy together. =)”  Hurray for the Pearlmans! (and Sudden Sam too)

Instant Hat for an Independent Scientologist:

  1. Given this is what I read on the MR squirrel site, if this is the best OSA’s got, I’m wondering if those guys haven’t already lost the war (before it’s even begun) … for your (Independent) amusement:

    “Disconnections are not longer in Use, like Tommy Davis told us on National TV!

    All this chattering by the Independents about Love, being Human, having Fun, and political visions, might be important, but will always be Junior to our Eternity.

    We are NOT Human Beings, if that means we are sentenced to live with our Aberations.

    LOVE is pretty low on the Tonescale, and the Purpose of the Scientology Church is not ONLY to simple have FUN!

    To get Freedom you need Discipline, otherwise it isn`t a game condition, and no game, no life! What`s Freedom without Live? Nothing. So let`s rhe Stones rolling wherever they want. (Nothing against this great Rockband!)

    The Independents are to fail, because they have no Organisation. Auditing is a group activity, and there are much terminals necessary, working smooth together, without any Enturbulations, Entheta or even Opinions.”

    So there you have it, love is pretty low on the tone scale and auditing is a group activity requiring people with no opinions.

    I bet I know what this being was doing on Reichskristallnacht …

  2. I am so glad you no longer fear the ‘Big Bad Wolf’. Theta is much more powerful than entheta. Love, Sarge

  3. Try to post this on there Huck:

    “Happiness and strength endure only in the absence of hate. To hate alone is the road to disaster. To love is the road to strength. To love in spite of all is the secret of greatness. And may very well be the greatest secret in this universe.”

    L. Ron Hubbard

    I’ll bet they denounce their own prophet.

  4. “There is only one security, and when you’ve lost that security, you’ve lost everything you’ve got. And that is the security of confidence in yourself; to be, to create, to make any position you want to make for yourself. And when you lose that confidence, you’ve lost the only security you can have. … Self-confidence is self-determinism. One’s belief in one’s ability to determine his own course. As long as one has that, he’s got the universe in his pocket. And when he hasn’t got that, not all the pearls in China nor all the grain and corn in Iowa can give him security, because that’s the only security there is.”

    L.Ron Hubbard

    What a great visual of an Independent. I love this video!

  6. You want to know the difference? This comm was sent to all Scientologists from Bridge, re: helping get the Tech into Haiti.

    “The minimum donation being asked is $500. Any one making a donation of $3,000 or more will receive a very special commendation that will go directly into their ethics file.”

    What an admission.

    Bridge is saying, “We need money to get COB off our backs and in turn you can buy your ethics presence. A win-win scenario!”

    It’s really pitiful.

  7. martyrathbun09

    Huck, I’ve got that comm. I agree with you. I am working up a post around it, demonstrating how Miscavology has turned to Disaster Capitalism.

  8. The thing is, CD, I don’t hate any of them; not even Miscavige. When you see someone for what they are, from altitude, it’s very hard to hate. But they sure do seem very, very small.

  9. Huck,
    What part of the MR squirrel site did that come from? I couldn’t find that quote.

    Marty isn’t mockery supposed to be some sort of flattery? I have been referred to that MR squirrel site by OSA helpers.. it was supposedly supposed to give me truth and make me see the sins I have been committing.. it had the opposite effect..

  10. Love the visual hat write up, Marty 🙂

    You’re comment on Disaster Capitalism, unfortunately pretty much describes Miscavigology.

    As you remember it started with the attacks Germany and the IRS.

    Some of it was evident during 9/11.

    But I’d never thought he and his wrecking crew would sink to such depths!

    They really are getting desperate!!!

    Marty that alter-site on you has the same puerile “humor” of children who lack a life. It is more a reflection of their own ignorance which of course they consider as their “strength” than anything else.

  11. Hey Marty!
    I sent a donation. Can you send a commendation directly to my ethics file? I think I’m gonna need it! ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha

  12. Huckleberry,
    You forgot the best part about “Snowwhites” post on there:
    “I might be wrong too, I don`t know. I am only a public Scientologist, not trained very high, but this is how this awfull independent scene appears to me.”

    That site is too funny. It really is for the untrained!

  13. Donations to help “get the Tech into Haiti”???
    NO!!! What they need in Haiti right now is NOT Tech for heaven sakes, it’s MEDICATION, FOOD, WATER, SHELTER etc…
    What the hell can they do with “Tech” when they are in pain and hungry and barely surviving?
    Get their ruds in first!
    Donations should go to help Paul Haggis and his team provide RELIEF to Haiti. Man, DM is such a criminal! Making money off of other’s misery!

    I loved the video. Thank you!
    I am glad to hear that Shane and Chrissie are staying strong and are together.

  14. No kidding!
    Each independent (alone) could be the little bear – a seemingly small and insignificant person against a bigger, vicious, well organized survival suppressor.
    BUT…. if you mess with the little bear you mess with mamma bear – the group of independents behind the little bear.
    Mess with one of us and you mess with ALL of us.
    Game over!
    Chrissie and Shane – Love you guys. Be strong.
    Shane – you have lost nothing in reality. How about this for a family of people who love you unconditionally?

  15. Ehm, who ist the Independent? The Cougar or the little Bear?

  16. Just receive this from Flag, Re: Haiti:

    “As you know just several days ago there was a 7.0 earthquake in
    As a direct result of this catastrophe tens of thousands of people
    have died and an entire nation has gone into total chaos.
    The Church of Scientology has started to ship out dozens of Volunteer
    Ministers to give aid to the tens of thousands that need it. Similar
    to the situation when 911 hit the USA, we need to get as much
    Scientology technology into the hands of the Haitian people.
    As we steadily increase the number of VMs being sent, so must we also
    increase the amount of Scientology tech into the hands of people.
    Right now New era Publications is requesting that every single
    Scientologist lend a hand in this. We will be shipping thousands upon
    thousands of Scientology Handbook booklets and other various basic
    Scientology tools to the VMs on site. They in turn will distribute
    these to the public on the ground while hatting them on how to use the

    LRH wrote in a despatch when I was at ASI in the early 80’s: (paraphrase cause obviously don’t have it to hand) You can judge a man by the character of his enemies.

  18. A quote bit surpassed by time but good in its basics.

    Albert Schweitzer:
    The fundamental rights of [humanity] are, first:

    the right of habitation; second, the right to move freely; third, the right to the soil and subsoil, and to the use of it; fourth, the right of freedom of labor and of exchange; fifth, the right to justice; sixth, the right to live within a natural national organization; and seventh, the right to education.

  19. Snowite, your german is showing.

  20. Winston Churchill:

    You have enemies? Good. That means you’ve stood up for something, sometime in your life.

  21. It is of course no real suprise to us. The church of mestology is no longer capable of any real help in the world because Miscavige has finally completed his task of making Scientology over into something resembling his own personaility. A personality so brilliantly described by LRH is PAB 13:

    “What we will call the aberrative personality does the following things: 1. Everything bad that happened to the preclear was (a) ridiculous, (b) unimportant, (c) deserved.
    2. Everything the preclear and others did to the aberrative person was (a) very important, (b) very bad, (c) irremediable.
    3. Those things which the preclear could do (a) were without real value, (b) were done better by the aberrative personality or by others.
    4. Sexual restraint or perversion.
    5. Inhibition of eating.
    Such people would be better understood if I called them the “merchants of
    fear.” The most degraded control operation of which the GE is capable is utilized by
    these people for their sole method of getting on in the world. They have lost all ability
    themselves to create, they cannot work themselves, they must either amass money
    which is never to be spent or must prevent others from amassing money. They produce
    nothing, they must steal one way or another, and then devaluate whatever they obtain.
    They speak very sternly of honesty or ethics and put on a formidable front of complete

  22. I recommend none of it, Chrissie, but from memory it was the second post from the top. I thought I’d see what formidable force OSA was compiling against Marty but it’s all very underwhelming.

    I was quite shocked at how bad OSA’s become but then it dawned on me that every exec with any kind of talent has been in one way or another run out of Upper Mgmt.

    So what’s left is the dregs and, of course, the crazed little man.

    I think that’s what they call sowing the seeds of your own destruction.

  23. Well I think them linking themselves with this site will be educational for them even if they do not yet understand it all.

  24. I was taking pity on the poor guy. It was obviously late in the OSA EU bunker.

    S/W look around you and ask, Was ist das?

    Gute Fahrt

  25. Sam,
    You are hilarious!!! Imagine making a donation so you can get a nice note in your ethics file…Made this lady lol. Thank you!

  26. Truth,
    Our thoughts exactly! You are spot on and obviously someone hasn’t got much of an understanding of the tech if they think it can go in over the lack of the obvious basic needs of food, and water, and shelter and medical care. I am so disgusted with the CO$’s response.

  27. Narcissus or Narkissos (Greek: Νάρκισσος), possibly derived from ναρκη (narke) meaning “sleep, numbness,” in Greek mythology was a hero from the territory of Thespiae in Boeotia who was renowned for his beauty. In the various stories he is exceptionally cruel, in that he disdains those who love him. As divine punishment he falls in love with a reflection in a pool, not realizing it was his own, and perishes there, not being able to leave the beauty of his own reflection.

  28. Wow…Did LRH know David Miscavage? cuz this sure sounds exactly like the man being described in the horror stories told here.

  29. Wow,

    Are prices for special commendations now going up by 10% compounded as well? If so, it’s definitely a “buy now”

  30. Ja, das Behr naturlich, und who ist SnowOSAweiss?

  31. The $cientology trademark operation has cheesy press releases out showing John Travolta posing with “Volunteer Ministers” in Haiti, and the agenda is clearly to advertise.

    I don’t diss anyone who helps however they can, but using disasters as “promo opportunity” is not *doing what you’re doing when you’re doing it.*

    Helps groups get their name out there to HELP, not to promote themselves.

  32. LOL LOL!!

  33. It’s called “Ambulance chasing” — predatory “help”.

  34. Snowhite it’s okay to comm your hostility overtly. You’re smiling but…what’s that jab I feel?

  35. I absolutely love this video.

    It reminds me of everyone who has ever truly loved me, and every being and principle I have ever loved.

    There is no greater treasure than integrity and true friends.

  36. Snowhite’s spots are showing.

    Maybe you can go feed elsewhere. Or come on down and meet my mamma 😀

  37. martyrathbun09

    Truth, thank you. I just printed the BPI (Pubs US) version along with an alert response. I agree with your thoughts here.

  38. From her easy- to- be- disciplined and must- have- discipline attitude, I though Snowhite is a Chinglish(Chinese English) speaker.
    Am I right, Snowhite?

  39. Das ist air in the pipelines (farts)!

    Well, unless they’re walking around in droid bodies, they still have a fourth dynamic here…and this human stuff is not so measly, nor is human a dirty word.

    Ah, yes, they thump the gold styrofoam flanked puplit and scream “Eternity” …their ultimate justifier for their daily transgressions against decency and respect. Because these here “humans” the franchi$e is controlling for Profit$ and power aren’t worth nothing. Right?

    The PR bits about freeing them is just Gimme The Money speak.

    Well I am a Human *Being*. I am also fully exterior with perceptics and a lot of the things that I decide manifest pretty immediately in my environment. I have pages of fun stuff that is not delusional per scientifically conducted standards. But that does not make me NOT part of MY 4th dynamic. Which right now, in this civilization, happens to be human.

    Look up what LRH says about *seriousness* vs. *fun*. I would rather go to an uptone doctor than a serious, lowtoned one.

    I may have a different 4th dynamic somewhere, someday, or even right now. After all, 4th dynamic is RACE. Only on Earth, right now, the 4th dynamic is human.

    And the BEING part of human is ALSO my 4th dynamic.

    “Eternity” is populated by Beings. And Creation is Born of Love.

    I suggest looking up the definition of Love. And read poems and great literature about it. Without Love, there *is no SOUL*. LOVE makes worlds. Love makes anything worth making. Idcided to BE out of Love.

    Greed, OTOH (on the other hand) only thinks about what it can Take and amass (note: a-Mass) because it has lost confidence in its ability to Create.

    Thanks for listening and I hope you can hear me over the sound of your walnuts cracking, because the franchised Money Op$ pretending to be Scientology is out tech squirrel, and/or just plain being nasty.

    There is no fail here. Nothing can take cogs away from us, and I will deliver as many as I can, and protect standard LRH tech because I *love* it, and it is *fun*.

  40. Thanks for posting that Haydn. Wow. This is so right on. The aberrative personality PAB fits the “church of Mestology” exactly! That is so amazing. Point for point, a fit. Major charge blew in lining all those up. Spot on. Thanx. BTW, this also reflect not just how they treat people and the public, but I was reading Tiziano Lugli’s experiences when he went to contribute voiceover recording at Gold and was devalued…like staff is. omg
    “They produce nothing, they must steal one way or another, and then devaluate whatever they obtain.
    They speak very sternly of honesty or ethics and put on a formidable front of complete legality.”

  42. Cat Daddy,
    Again you have provided ageless wisdom with your quotes. Much thanks.

  43. Sno,
    Hey there. Listen, I think it’s probably the consensus hereabouts (agreed by the individuals on this blog for the most part) that the fact you are doing SOMETHING in Scientology is a good thing. You’ve acknowledged you aren’t trained though. What about taking your obvious willingness and getting trained? Get up the Bridge, both sides. This will all look different then and you’ll have more satisfaction across the dynamics. Do the training, audit others, see their wins, you’ll have fun and I guarantee it will be with Scientology if you do it right.

  44. That’s the ticket.

    “But screw your courage to the sticking-place and we’ll not fail.”
    – Shakespeare

  45. correction: the photo circulating with the “$cientology Helping Haiti” press release is of John Travolta and Kelly Preston and ‘Volunteer Ministers’ posing for the camera in New Orleans during the Katrina disaster.

  46. Love on the low toned people is experience as obsession and limitation, at the highest levels is a game of joy, is listening to the most fantastic birds singing, and is the desire to open the windows so everybody can hear them….

  47. Karma Pea in german it is: “Ordnung must sein !”

  48. Anyone notice that you get a commendation in EU for just 600 Euros but in the US it’s got to be a min 3 grand? Ethics presence is cheaper in Europe?

  49. Very true, Silvia. LOVE = Reactive Love in the lower tone bands. That sad little game of reach and withdraw has nothing, of course, to do with ARC, which is love by any other name.

    Haydn, Rembrandt himself couldn’t have painted a more accurate portrait. And to think my initial meeting with DM left me believing that my ethics presence wasn’t high enough because this guy had zero ARC, zero obvious theta and was in the valence of a prison warden/dictator so of course I must’ve been the one with O/Ws!

  50. Bible:
    Love is patient, love is kind.
    It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.
    It is not rude, it is not self-seeking.
    It is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.
    Love does not delight in evil, but rejoices with the truth.
    It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
    Love never fails.
    I Corinthians 13:4-8

  51. After all is said and done, the truth … pure and simple. So good to read that. Thanks.

  52. That’s because Euros are easier to launder these days than US Dollars.

  53. Haydn, that is so amazingly spot-on that I am nearly speechless.
