Jon Atack excavates the Scientology mind for L. Ron Hubbard’s most harmful implants

Jon_AtackJon Atack is the author of A Piece of Blue Sky, one of the very best books on L. Ron Hubbard and Scientology. He has a new edition of the book for sale, and for more than a year on Saturdays he helped us sift through the legends, myths, and contested facts about Scientology that tend to get hashed and rehashed in books, articles, and especially on the Internet. He was kind enough to send us a new post.

One of the great surprises for us here in the Underground Bunker over the last couple of years has been our ongoing relationship with Jon Atack. He continually amazes us with his deep delves into the background, motivations, and obfuscations of Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard. And now, Jon has outdone himself with an exploration of the Scientology mind that leaves us in awe. Prepare to be probed.

JON: By now, we know each other well enough to speak plainly. Putting aside all of the hopes and dreams and the sincere belief of its victims that Scientology is the salvation of Humanity, the truth is that the goal of Scientology was to flow money, power and authority to Ron Hubbard. There are no Clears and there are no OTs. Scientology does not lead to success in every walk of life. It all too often leads to catastrophe and despair, to financial ruin, broken families and even suicide.

One of the provisional titles for my tome Let’s sell these people A Piece of Blue Sky was “Hubbard through the Looking Glass” (you’ll find it listed in Russell Miller’s excellent book under that name, if you were mystified where Miller’s basic research came from). And through the looking glass is where the truth of Hubbard lies: Scientology is the very opposite of salvation. It is slavery.

Ultimately, this system is intended to deify Hubbard, as even that truest believer Marty Rathbun has finally realized. As Hubbard said in his 1938 letter to his first wife, his only goal was to smash his name into history. OT VIII is the final level — the purported 15 levels above, announced in the 1970s, are mythical, though as Tony Ortega has revealed, Miscavige spent over 10 million of his tax free dollars watching Pat Broeker for 24 years, just in case the final section of the Bridge existed. As it is, the Bridge fails to span the Abyss. But, as both Bridge and Abyss are figments of Hubbard’s malign imagination, we need not worry too much about his abject failure as a spiritual engineer.

On OT VIII Hubbard asserts himself the Source of the universe itself — the Creator or Demiurge. This fits in with those philosophies that portray God as narcissistic and malevolent (Hubbard’s guru Aleister Crowley’s view of Christianity, for instance). This particular god is also known as the Devil. And that was Hubbard’s aim, as he fairly clearly stated in his secret Blood Ritual ceremony, which was shown to me by Hubbard’s erstwhile official biographer, Omar Garrison, 20 years ago.

The aim of Scientology is to reduce the free individual to obedience to the orders and policies of Scientology. Quite simply put, it does not bring about “self-determinism” but “Ron-determinism,” where the follower (or Dev-OT) is in complete accord with the fantasies and fabrications of the Founder.

With Hubbard’s death, the goal of Scientology became simply to raise Hubbard to godhood. It has no other purpose. When Hubbard began to suspect David Miscavige’s intentions, he ordered a security check, which was carried out by his senior “technical terminal,” Jesse Prince. The results of that security check were never revealed to Hubbard, because they were waylaid by Pat Broeker. However, Jesse says that both Miscavige and Broeker were stealing Hubbard’s cash to gamble in Las Vegas. And Scientology is “the most ethical group on the planet,” or so we are told. It seems that Miscavige may be the only person left in the Organization who understands the purpose of the game: To raise Hubbard to godhood with the additional benefit of maintaining his own demonic lifestyle. And, if you don’t believe he is truly demonic, ask yourself has anyone ever ordered as many pregnancies to be terminated as this man? Not even Hubbard took so many innocent lives.

Scientology is a system of procedures that induces euphoria (“very good indicators”) and heightens suggestibility (obedience training or OT) so that the tenets of Scientology will be followed and Hubbard deified. Elsewhere, the same techniques are called hypnosis. Hubbard said of hypnosis: “It reduces self-determinism by interposing the commands of another below the analytical level of an individual’s mind” (Dianetics and Scientology Technical Dictionary, from Science of Survival, Book 2, p.220). It is a good definition and is achieved on a daily basis by Hubbard’s cult.

Here is one of the most relevant statements that Hubbard ever made. I shall quote it at length, because it is the essential truth of Scientology: “In altitude teaching, somebody is a ‘great authority.’ He is probably teaching some subject that is far more complex than it should be [Scientology is the most complex system ever devised by any single ‘great authority’]. He has become defensive down through the years, and this is a sort of protective coating that he puts up, along with the idea that the subject will always be a little better known by him than by anybody else and that there are things to know in this subject which he really wouldn’t let anybody else in on. This is altitude instruction.” In Keeping Scientology Working, Hubbard asserted that every major tenet in Scientology and Dianetics was his exclusive discovery. This is most certainly “altitude instruction”!

Hubbard continues, “And in order to get people to sit very alertly and do exactly what he says, he has another trick: he gives them examinations [‘star rate checkouts’] … So there is this anxiety around a person’s grades, and this comes forward until he finally gets up to a point in education where when somebody says the word examination to him it not only push-buttons him but it also threatens Mama, Papa, love and general survival. It is a terrific whip. It keeps people in a state of confusion, and when their minds are slightly confused they are in a hypnotic trance. Any time anybody gets enough altitude he can be called a hypnotic operator, and what he says will act as hypnotic suggestion. Hypnotism is a difference in levels of altitude. There are ways to create and lower the altitude of the subject, but if the operator can heighten his own altitude with regard to the subject the same way, he doesn’t have to put the subject to sleep. What he says will still react as hypnotic suggestion.” (my italics; Education and Dianetics, 11 November 1950, Research and Discovery Series, volume 4, 1st edition, pp.324-5)

So, Hubbard’s altitude — the only creator of “Tech” — means that “what he says will still react as hypnotic suggestion.” Not simply “act,” note, but “react,” as in “reactive mind.” Of course the “reactive mind” is that part of the mind which acts below consciousness — the hypnotic mind, in Hubbard’s terms (the reality is rather more complex, but you have to get past the anti-brain implant to approach the unconscious mind in all its glory). Hubbard fashioned the reactive mind, gifted it to his followers and filled it chock full with implants, so that Scientologists have about as much self-determinism as Pavlov’s dogs after their testicles had been removed.

The implanted positive suggestions of Scientology are the beliefs themselves. It is amazing how simply these beliefs come apart, if you can only confront them head on. Raising communication does not raise affinity — or yelling, beating, and brutalising would be useful means for bringing love into the world. In the eight dynamics, it is risible that the individual has the same vote as the entire of humanity, or that God is allowed only one vote. Those who believe in God would surely not go against His (or Her) will, no matter how much it seems to benefit the other seven dynamics. Scientology is a farrago of pseudoscience. Curiously, the word “scientology” was first used to mean exactly that, long before Hubbard redefined it. It is an edifice that crumbles once logic is focused upon it.

The beliefs are held in place by phobia induction. As Jesse Prince says, when he left, it was too scary to even look at contradictions. The much vaunted “confront” of the Scientologist blinks into darkness and terror. The tenets become unquestionable assumptions, and, by the very laws of reason, such assumptions must be questioned by rational people (Let me again recommend John Stuart Mill’s seminal text On Liberty). Otherwise, superstition, instinct, intuition and emotion will pitch us into blind obedience, because all are so readily manipulable. Only reason can dig us out of the tyranny of irrationality. Like it or not, we have to be self-determined if we are to escape from the traps laid for us by tricksters. And self-determinism is based upon making our own estimation of reality, which, in turn, is based upon cold, hard reasoning. But didn’t Hubbard claim to have founded a science? Something that can be tested by observation and experiment, rather than a grab bag of suppositions and authoritarian assertions.

The system works using the “two terminal universe” concept. In Science of Survival, Hubbard borrowed Korzybski’s concept of infinity-valued logic. Korzybski is acknowledged in the frontispiece of that book, as one of the thinkers “without whose speculations and observations the creation and construction of Dianetics would not have been possible.” (Though Hubbard would later assert that his were the only contributions of any value in “50,000 years.” But contradiction keeps the marks confused, so that they will do as they are told.)

In Notes on the Lectures, Hubbard asserts: “Primitive logic was one-valued. Everything was assumed to be the product of a divine will, and there was no obligation to decide the rightness or wrongness of anything. Most logic added up eerily to the propitiation of the gods. Aristotle formulated two-valued logic. A thing was either right or wrong. This type of logic is used by the reactive mind. In the present day, engineers are using a sort of three-valued logic which contains the values of right, wrong, and maybe. From three-valued logic we jump to infinity-valued logic — a spectrum which moves from infinite wrongness to infinite rightness.” (cited in the Dianetics and Scientology Technical Dictionary under “logic”).

Scientology does not use infinity-valued logic, rather it uses single-valued logic — not the “will of God” but the will of Hubbard. There is no flexibility in Scientology: You follow the “Technology” to the letter (the “white taped route”). No matter how “OT” you become, you will never reach Hubbard’s level: You will never be able to see how the universe works and discover any “technology” yourself. You might be a god, but he is a god-maker. If you subscribe to his infantile narcissism, that is.

The definition of infinity-valued logic in Science of Survival is: “It is a tenet of Dianetics that absolutes are unobtainable. Terms like good and bad, alive and dead, right and wrong are used only in conjunction with gradient scales. On the scale of right and wrong, everything above zero or centre would be more right, approaching an infinity of rightness, and everything below zero or centre would be more and more wrong, approaching an infinite wrongness. The gradient scale is a way of thinking about the universe which approximates the actual conditions of the universe more closely than any other existing logical method.” Hubbard certainly didn’t waste time on humility! (And it would be interesting to see the “gradient scale” of death as a condition — is Hubbard more or less dead now that he was in 1986?).

Still, this idea was quickly abandoned in favour of the Will of Hubbard. The two-terminal concept pervades Scientology — dual-valued logic (right and wrong) — at best. So, we find “goals problems masses,” which are the basis of Grade 6, the Clearing Course, the original OT I and the current OT II. According to Hubbard this is the foundation of the Reactive Mind or “R6 Bank.” These are the “implants” given during Incident Two of OT III, 75 million years ago.

The notion is that “charge” is generated by two poles, so the individual is held in place by contradictions — such as “to be or not to be.” Scientology itself is a two-terminal structure, where almost every assertion has a contradiction (as we saw in my piece on double binds). This induces cognitive dissonance — confusion — where the individual becomes unable to decide, so must ask for direction from the outside. The implants of Scientology tend to follow this pattern. Confusion technique is the most basic method of hypnosis. In the blank, while the mind hunts for sense, a positive suggestion (or command) can be quickly inserted.

The restriction on discussion of the “technology” — verbal tech — ensures that believers do not articulate the ideas. And the best way to see illogic is to try and articulate it, as any schoolteacher knows. Long ago, my good friend Eileen Griswold told me about the 1970s OT Committee in East Grinstead, which would meet every week to discuss the axioms of Scientology. After months of discussion, they realized that they could not make head nor tail of these pseudoscientific assertions, which are most certainly not “self-evident,” as Hubbard claimed. Try to twist your head around “space is a viewpoint of dimension” for instance. One auditor spent almost two hours trying to explain this meaningless tautology to me, eventually admitting that it says nothing (let alone being the first time that space has been defined without reference to matter or energy, as Hubbard claimed. Einstein’s ‘”spacetime” was way beyond his comprehension, it seems, but then he did fail a course in atomic and molecular physics before being chucked out of college).

Perhaps the worst part of any cult is the imposition of a parasitic identity on the believer. Among the strongest support for the reality of cult damage comes from the personality tester, Flavil Yeakley, who was asked by the Boston Church of Christ to assess its members. He found that in cult groups, such as the BCC, Scientology, the Moonies and the Way International, members all exhibit the personality profile of the group (which differs from group to group), where in normal Christian congregations there is a wide variety of personality types.

In simple language: Scientology clones its member, until they are as alike as peas in a pod (only rather more green). Sadly, this means that ex-members must not only relieve themselves of the loaded language and the engrained behaviours, but also of the whole set of implants. We all struggle to do this. It took me six months to stop “confronting” people, and I was surprised to find that I noticed much more once I’d stopped. It also brought me out of the self-perpetuating trance that this locked-on eye contact induces. As a side note, teachers in the UK are told not to stare at pupils, because it is considered bullying. Both the police and the military have long been cautioned about the effect of staring. It is the habit of predators.

I have met many, many former members who remain trapped in the implants, years after leaving the cult, the Tech, and the loaded language. You have to take the tenets head on if you are to escape them and reclaim your humanity; your self-determinism. If you do not disagree with Hubbard on any point, that is conclusive proof that you are not self-determined.

Scientology can be stripped down into a series of implants. These are patterns of behaviour that will persist even after auditing is abandoned. See how many of them you recognise, and then please, please add some more (why should I have all the fun?).

The first set are the phobia inductions, which will prevent the believer from going astray, or thinking (and after all, on the “know to mystery scale,” “thinkingness” is low tone, just below “effortingness” and to be avoided — why bother when Ron can do it for you?).

To become a successful cult, it is necessary to ring fence your believers against any analysis of your methods. So the “mixed practices” implant is imposed. You cannot meditate, do yoga or take medicine without permission. You cannot receive any form of psychotherapy. Texts by other authors are dismissed (except for the occasional recommendation of an Aleister Crowley book, works on hypnosis, hard selling and spying — and all Scientologists should read every one of those recommended texts, to gain insight into the Founder).

But most of all, you must be terrified of any profession that sports the prefix “psych.” Hubbard had his own gripes — his second wife (“I had no second wife”), Sara, had convinced a psychiatrist to diagnose Hubbard mentally ill — but to isolate the whole science of psychology, where many of the answers to his tricks and traps reside, was essential. So we find that the “psychs and priests” are the “same crew…who existed way, way back the track.” (False Purpose Rundown PL). Sea Org members are told, in the Hygiene Hat, that the “psychs” control the world with perfume (for reasons unknown, this is kept from public Scientologists, who blithely continue to use scented products, so presumably remain under the spell of the psychs, no matter how much auditing they buy).

The “psych conspiracy” is one of Hubbard’s more fanciful notions. I’ve yet to meet any two psychiatrists, psychologists, or psychotherapists who agree on any single thing. I do agree with him that some of them are awful people, but conspiracy? Not a chance. There are hundreds of schools of psychotherapy, and the practitioners most certainly don’t agree. But, as Hitler observed, if you want a strong group, you must create an enemy. He rated Jews, bankers, and communists. Hubbard rated psychs, bankers, and communists. Loathing and disgust bind a group together, after all. Disgust may be the most overlooked emotion in the panoply of exploitative persuasion. And it is so easy to excite.

Hubbard protected himself from censure with the “third party implant.” The notion that quarrels only begin because of a hidden third party is ludicrous, but it means that if you are upset with Hubbard, it isn’t his fault, but some invisible suppressive (whatever happened to the idea that the suppressive is always “hidden”?). I’ve met enough bullies to know that they don’t need any third party for their behaviour. Much easier to face the truth than believe this third party implant to be true.

The “suppressive person implant” ostracises anyone who points to any defect in Hubbard or his system (This is the purpose of the suppressive person declare). Hubbard knew he was safe stealing psychiatrist Hervey Cleckley’s ideas about “anti-social personalities” and giving them his usual tweak (after Scientology wouldn’t persist with being “alter-ised” according to his ideas — there must be a lie involved for anything to persist, and Scientology is a Big Lie). It didn’t stop him from passing on plenty of bad news and “broad generalities” about the “psychs”, but it did allow him to wage “fair game” campaigns and use the fundamental method of any cult — shunning or “disconnection.” The belief that any problem can be solved by running away from it is the opposition terminal to the “confront” that is also preached. Yet another double bind: “Communication is the universal solvent” and “disconnection” is the universal solution. I agree with Gerry Armstrong that the SP doctrine is the very heart of Scientology: Treat opponents as sociopaths and you will become a sociopath. A Hubbard clone.

The “missed withhold implant” tells us that people only criticise others — or natter — because they fear their secrets may have been discovered. This again provides Hubbard with a cloak of invisibility. OK, he was a lousy husband and father, a chain smoker who stank because of his rotten teeth, but, even though these statements are true, I’m only making them because he missed my withholds. Get a grip!

As Hubbard said, in his Propaganda by Redefinition of Words: “WORDS ARE REDEFINED TO MEAN SOMETHING ELSE TO THE ADVANTAGE OF THE PROPAGANDIST.” (emphasis in original, see more about this subject in my essay at Jonny Jacobson’s website, Infinite Complacency.) Hubbard tells us that we can be controlled by the redefinition of words, and then proceeds to pour forth more redefinitions than anyone in history — two 500 page dictionaries. So, start with “open-minded,” which according to one online dictionary means “Willing to consider new ideas; unprejudiced.” In Keeping Scientology Working, we find, “When somebody enrols, consider he or she has joined up for the duration of the universe — never permit an ‘open-minded’ approach.” Now, I can feel the grind of cognitive dissonance in the minds of the true believers, so let’s put this simply: To be a Scientologist you must be unwilling to consider new ideas (ie, non-Scientology ideas) and you must adopt Hubbard’s prejudices wholesale and without additional thought.

Let’s move on to “reasonable.” Prior to Hubbard’s propagandist redefinition of this term, it meant: “having sound judgement; fair and sensible.” In the Admin dictionary, however, at definition two for “reasonableness” we find: “faulty explanations.” Again, for the true believer, I must point out that there is no need to redefine words when there are already perfectly adequate terms in English. It inevitably leads to “misunderstood words.” Such as “faulty explanations.” Unless you want to control people, that is.

With these terms, Hubbard shows part of a pattern to neutralise dissent. You must be neither open-minded nor reasonable. Indeed, the redefinition of “open-minded” is extracted from this instruction: “When somebody enrols, consider he or she has joined up for the duration of the universe — never permit an ‘open-minded’ approach … If they enrolled, they’re aboard, and if they’re aboard they’re here on the same terms as the rest of us — win or die in the attempt. Never let them be half minded about being Scientologists … When Mrs. Pattycake comes to us to be taught, turn that wandering doubt in her eye into a fixed, dedicated glare…The proper instruction attitude is, ‘We’d rather have you dead than incapable’.”

In other words, to be a Scientologist, you must be a fanatic. This rather precludes thinking for yourself — self-determinism — but it does fit in with one of Hubbard’s pre-Scientology secret scales, where he listed “fanatics and zealots” as a necessity to create his own divinity.

Now for the “misunderstood word implant” — “the only reason a student gives up a study,” we are told (apart from “too steep a gradient” or “suppressive rendition” and various other notions). This diverts the student from the wood — which can no longer be seen — to the trees. What Hubbard says isn’t contradictory nonsense: The fault lies with the student, who has failed to understand the brilliance of Hubbard’s ideas. But, it’s a tough universe and “only the tigers survive” and as the Admin dictionary tells us, a “tiger” is someone with “continued out ethics.”

A dear friend of mine, who has probably helped thousands of members from over a hundred different cults, told me that ex-Scientologists are consistently the most arrogant of former members (sorry, guys). I must admit that by the end of my first dozen years, I was appalled that ex-members not only did nothing to support my work, but instead actively attacked me. Even those who reckoned to have left the “Tech” far behind. It was a disillusioning experience, but the implants continue and they explain the cold selfishness all too often expressed by former members (obviously, this does not apply to any of my readers, who will all be sending me a hefty check for Christmas).

If Scientologists are cloned into a single identity, the central aspect of that identity is the lack of compassion. This is the “no sympathy” implant (we could call them “engrams” if you prefer — as Scientology creates a reactive mind, full of simple slogan instructions and knee jerk unthinking reactions — did I say “through the looking glass”?). A good fanatic must have no compunction about destroying an enemy (“dispensing of existence” the last phase of Robert Jay Lifton’s thought reform program). Enemies are vermin. So, the Nazis called Jews and the Romani “fleas” or “rats.” And Hubbard called defectors “squirrels” and labels them “fair game.”

The “no sympathy” implant says that we should not show sympathy, because it will weaken the poor victim. You will be “rewarding a down statistic” — which shows just how much Hubbard favoured Pavlovian logic over compassion. This is the warrior notion that allowed both the Spartans and the Nazis to gain victories. Thankfully, both of these ruthless cultures are long gone. A lack of sympathy is a lack of compassion. Look at how badly affected all of Hubbard’s own children were by his utter lack of sympathy for them. The hardest part of helping second generation members is helping them to love. They may just stare blankly when someone is distressed. They have no idea what to do.

This is compounded by the absence of love in Scientology. Hubbard dismissed it: “love, as a word, has too many meanings, and so we use an old, old word, affinity, as meaning the love or brotherhood from one dynamic to another” (Handbook for Preclears). Of course, this meaning was not “old, old” but invented on the spot by Hubbard. The closest I can find is “relationship by inclination; companionship,” which according to the Oxford entered the English language in 1611. The word “love” has been with us for at least a millennium longer, and what a lovely word it is.

Putting aside my hair-splitting, “affinity” is also a chemical term, denoting the willingness to be close. In electromagnetic terms, opposites attract (more of that “two-terminal universe”), in chemical terms, they tend to repel or neutralise each other. But love, that greatest of all feelings, is removed from the equation. Affinity is simply the willingness to be near. The great teachings of the Indian and the Levantine religions are put aside. If I have not caritas — or love — I am nothing, St Paul assures us. Well, by that definition, Scientologists are nothing.

Compassion is the first step of the Buddhist path. But Scientology instead has “communication” and thousands of pages of vituperative hatred in the inimitable Hubbard style: “if possible, ruin him utterly,” “If attacked on some vulnerable point by anyone or anything or any organization, always find or manufacture enough threat against them to cause them to sue for peace … Don’t ever defend. Always attack.” “Start feeding lurid, blood sex crime [sic] actual evidence on the attackers to the press.” At the same time, we should “refuse all invitations to hate” and “advocate total freedom.” Two terminals? This is the god Janus, or Hubbard’s own “Empress” the goddess Hathor, celebrated in his secret Blood Ritual ceremony — performed as he was creating Dianetics (which is, of course, dedicated to the Greek incarnation of Hathor, Diana). Hathor is both the feeder and the destroyer of humanity in the Crowley system that Hubbard practised throughout his life.

To keep the absence of concern for others in place is the “forgiveness implant.” This is clearly stated in the Hubbard Bulletin Proclamation: Power to Forgive. All you have to do is confess to be relieved of your guilt. One member put it succinctly, saying he could now do anything he liked and all he had to do was pay for a confessional! Instead of apologising to the injured party and making amends for the offence.

 

What it looks like to be subject to 'fair game'

What it looks like to be subject to ‘fair game’

 
Despite years of harassment, only one former GOSA agent has ever apologised to me. No one has yet suggested that they should do anything to repair the damage done during those many years. There is no responsibility (it was for the good of the cause, and they sincerely believed that destroying me and my family, was the right thing to do, so why feel the slightest concern?), no contrition and certainly no amends (“making amends” is, after all a down tone emotion, very near to death). Let me assure you that until you make recompense or at least apologise to those you harmed because of Scientology, you will stew in your own juices. Or your own “motivators.” You will be a sociopath, in other words, and you have my every sympathy.

An aspect of implanting is the crass belief that we are the authors of all of our own misfortune. Our wishes and our sins direct the universe. Hubbard ridiculed this Christian Science belief in a 1940s story, and then adopted it as a basis for Scientology. Somehow, his own persistent illness was caused not by “PTSness” but by his heroic research. As he said, the rules don’t apply to the games maker. Anything nasty that happens to you is your own fault (and anything nice is because of Hubbard. All cults share this mechanism). Elsewhere this fatalism and belief in a simplistic mechanical universe is called the “just world” concept, and it is buried deep in the psyche of most of us, because we hate to believe in chance or coincidence. Or the idea that bad things happen to good people. If that were true, we’d have to have sympathy for those who suffer. My late, marvellous friend Sheona Fox-Ness, assured me that I should not waste my time on Scientologists, because they have “pulled it in.” I asked her if she would leave a child to fall under a bus by the same logic. Compassion?

It amazes me how many former Scientologists continue to exhibit narcissistic sociopathy, as if it were the way to be, but it is the systematic erosion of compassion that leads to this self-centred behaviour. At the heart of this arrogance is the “only one” implant. Most ex-members believe that they have a special understanding of Scientology. Each is the “only one” to really understand Hubbard’s ideas. This is also the “know best” implant. Hubbard criticised both of these behaviours, as he quietly slipped them into the mix.

There are many other implants, but it is vital that we discover them for ourselves. I have no intention of becoming an ex-Scientology guru (though gratitude and cash are certainly welcome — I’ve gone into hock again to take the time to write these pieces, so please at least give copies of my books as Xmas presents and excoriate anyone who is providing them for free on the internet!). This leads us to the “exchange implant” which is linked to the “overt/motivator implant.” This is the belief that everything comes to you because of your postulates (or “wishes” to return the redefinition to its true meaning and show just how childish it really is). So you don’t have to be grateful or pay for anything that has been freely given. The “opp term” which holds this implant in place is the “free service — free fall” policy, which puts forward the ridiculous notion that if you don’t pay you won’t benefit from “services.” I don’t think it will make any difference to the efficiency of my plumber’s work if he offers to work for free. Though the labourer is worthy of his (or her) hire.

I would be very grateful if readers could come up with some of the many other implants, because, frankly, I’m worn out, after months working on this article!

    • John Peeler a.k.a. BTs2Free

      Mary Sue: Yes, we infiltrated the IRS and stole all of those documents because it was, “The greatest good, for the greatest number of Dynamics.”

      Female Sea Org Member: I agreed to have my abortion because, “It was the GGFTGNOD.”

      OSA Operative: I dug up as much dirt on that squirrel that I could, even fabricated some good filth on him because “It was the GGFTGNOD.”

      Etc…

      • John Peeler a.k.a. BTs2Free

        You should sell your house, your car, hand us over your bank account and get your parents to empty their bank accounts too. Why? It’s for the GGFTGNOD you idiot.

        • Ella Raitch

          The whole postulating future wealth, if-you-build-it-they-will-come, is an implant, designed to part people with their hard earned cash.

          • John Peeler a.k.a. BTs2Free

            Oh yeah, the good ‘ol “Postulate Check.”

          • John Peeler a.k.a. BTs2Free

            You have a “stuck flow” on money (implant). Once you start flowing us money towards your Bridge, or now the IAS, you will “open up your flows” and just watch the money start pouring in son.

              *Snickersnort* Redefinition of terms doesn’t just happen in $cientolog, does it?

          • ScientologyDoesNotExist

            The Freewinds is a floating implant station. It was especially used to embed that ” get get this course or auditing to unstick money flows” and sadly it worked on many. It’s always promoting how its not really On this planet and therefore none of that entheta to gunk up your flows. And they are right. Once they get out to sea and away from pesky laws, they lock you up in a room of other fools and you don’t leave until you and anyone you ever knew give them all that sticky cash. Whew, what a relief.

            • John Peeler a.k.a. BTs2Free

              “The Freewinds is a floating implant station.” So true.

            • ScientologyDoesNotExist

              A friend convinced me to go for vacation, tho id been out for sometime. I figured how back could St Thomas and Kitts be? I didnt think I could still be shocked. I was and wanted to kiss dry land when I finally was able to leave.

            • John Peeler a.k.a. BTs2Free

              Your friend convinced you to go on vacation on the Freewinds? Is that even possible? My God, what a nightmare.

            • ScientologyDoesNotExist

              I have since redefined “scientology friend” as “scientology fiend”. Never too old to learn.

      • I dated Mary Sue’s communicator of 13 years and best friend, Nikki Merwin. When Nikki was married to Rick and on the Apollo, having dinner with the Hubbards just about every night, she had three abortions.

    The censorship of Disqus comments alarms me. I submitted a detailed personal story relating to Jon’s article today, spent a lot of time writing it. It is still pending two hours later. If such comments are being censored here, I will refrain from commenting here. Of course I will continue to read the Underground Bunker article everyday, and may make an occasional upvote.

    • Bury_The_Nuts

      Do you know what could have keyed the response beyond the normal bad words I use 79 percent of the time?

      • aegerprimo

        I was VERY CAREFUL to not use bad words. If – $cientology – is a bad word, then I admit using that multiple times in my non-appearing and pending post.

        • Bury_The_Nuts

          I was wondering what kind of other keywords that they might be monitoring.

            • whenever a post goes to moderation you should still see it on the page but it’s greyed out… if you click on it it should still open and you can then copy all the text again

            • MaxSpaceman

              It was bee hatch, for the female dog word. Only in your post, you use the “t” in the female dog word, which you did not use in your comment/reply to Nuts. And that did it. I just posted with the “t” in the word and it went right to moderation.

        • Ella Raitch

          I put three x at the end of a post as ‘kisses’ and it got moderated!

      If you’re posting something really important, or kind of long, I highly recommend typing it up in Word or another document pgm first, and then cut and paste that into the message box. That way, you don’t lose your work and you can try it again.

I am sorry that this cult took your own characteristic shyness and as you say, made it worse, made you more aloof. It seems to me that you are very empathetic and compassionate now, and honest – from your comments on the Bunker. And to become a surgical nurse nurtures the compassionate side of you, which is wonderful. I am so glad to have gotten to know you though the Bunker.

        What appears for me on your first attempt to post is “Here it is:” without anything else– opening in new tab causes the “Here it is:” to disappear; I tried to post this in response to “Here it is:” but got ” You cannot reply to a post that is not active.”

            Basically, the ad button that used to be on the top right corner of the page is no longer there because Bunkerites have filthy potty mouths, and all of the sudden this was deemed to be a mature content site. The revenue the ads generated helped offset the server costs of running the Bunker. That is why we have new moderation settings, in the hope that Google will change its mind if there’s less obscenity. We have to prove we’re not mature by being more mature.

            • aegerprimo

              I don’t know what to say about that. IMHO the Google AD was not yanked because of “potty mouth Disqus comments” but was taken down because this site is controversial because it is NO HOLDS BARRED about the truth of the CULT of $cientology and the crimes surrounding the cult and it’s members and leader and founder, and so on.

            • Jimmy3

              I’ve never thought there was an excessive amount of foul language here, either, but t1kk is saying that’s the reason Google pulled the ads. Whether or not someone reported it to Google is open for speculation.

            • aegerprimo

              YES, key being open for speculation.

            • Todd Tomorrow

              I assumed it was a complaint from you know who. The previous week I was gone but I was talking to a fellow Bunkerite on the phone and they said a lot went on. They were saying to some we could be considered a hate group. And I’ll admit I hate the clams.
              Seems like they are working on it the best way they can. Censorship seems to be an awful president to set!

              IIRC, Tony banned Koki many months ago after he posted an adult video to the comment thread. I keep wondering if something that far back could be tainting our reputation.

              (This is my second attempt to post this comment. Have replaced an adult movie rating with the word “adult” video.)

            • Jimmy3

              Nah, t1kk says they cited a page in March as offensive, and Koki was already banned by then. And I don’t think just because they gave one example means it was only one incident or one post that caused this.

            • Frodis73

              Was this person a regular commenter that posted the video? If so, why would they do that?

              Yes, and I don’t know why, but koki seemed to like annoying people. I didn’t see the video before it was deleted, but someone said it had something to do with a dolphin…
              Yeah.

              The bit I saw before quickly closing was your basic adult pay-per-view. It was out of the blue and stupid.

              Ahh. Maybe I’m thinking of another post, or the dolphin thing was a joke. Hopefully the latter.

            • Vaquera

              I remember that, too. Maybe I didn’t watch long enough.

              That was Cat Daddy. koki was just banned for being repetitive.

            • Vaquera

              Ok. It was the most egregious incident I could think of.

            • Vaquera

              A few days ago, when censorship became a clear issue, I went onto another disqus site to try posting questionable words, the same moderation was employed. So I concluded that this is not an issue specific to the Bunker.
              (Tell me if I am totally late to this realization. It’s ok, I can take it.)

            • Jimmy3

              You can change the settings, so different Disqus boards have different rules. Some Disqus pages require moderator approval for every post, regardless of the content. Some moderate only certain words. Some moderate for URLs. Some don’t allow image attachments. Etc etc

    • Todd Tomorrow

      Just cut and and copy to make sure you have one. It’s my understanding that two things are going on.1)We put key words in to censure ourselves in an attempt to get our Goog adword ad back to defray costs. This sometimes sees words that may seem vulgar that truly are not. 2. Disqus is trying to fix inner problems and don’t exactly have a correct timeline. I’ve had some that have been put in the doghouse but eventually 99% have eventually come through. Frustrating, but we’d hate to lose you and use my copy tech.

    • Missionary Kid

      You might split the post into two or more segments to see what got it flagged, then post the second and next sections as replies to the first one to see which section is the objectionable one. When you figure it out, modify that one and repost it.

      I had one reply moderated that had nothing that I could see that was objectionable, so I just summarized it, and it went through.

      • aegerprimo

        Seems very complicated MK. Many peeps make long comments often, and no moderation. I have made long comments (rarely) before and no moderation. All of a sudden mine today… is in moderation…. twice. When I write such things, I take time. I re-read and edit before posting. I was especially careful today because of Tony’s article, Thursday Nov 25th – http://tonyortega.org/2014/11/25/scientology-armageddon-now-sears-yes-sears-is-piling-on-the-embattled-church/ see his comment at bottom of article A note on Disqus

        • Missionary Kid

          When you split it up, you’ll be able to pinpoint the problem. Then things will become clearer. The censorship at times almost seems random.

          • Todd Tomorrow

            I was going to say the same thing. That’s why people are erroneously thinking Google is doing it. It happened randomly prior to the adword mess, so i’d assumed it was just Disqus acting up again like it has been the past month more than ever.

  • Stacy

    What gets done in rehab about empathy is role-playing and visualization, usually in a group counseling setting. They’ll be asked to try to imagine what it would be like to be their victim, and role-play what they would say as the victim to themselves.

    Like I said, I’m not sure the method is valid. Actually being confronted by their victim tends to have more effect.

    It’s hard to answer the s*x offenders/genetics question, because there are so many different types of offenders with very different motivators. Do some of them have messed up brain chemistry? Definitely. Sometimes SSRI’s help to inhibit offending behavior. Androgen inhibitors also work on some. Some offenders talk about a compulsion that they cannot resist. There’s a lot of debate over this.

    If you tell me what type of offender or topic you’re most interested in, I’d be happy to email you some articles on the topic. I don’t want to post any due to copyright infringement.

    Or just ask me a bunch of questions. I’d be more than happy to answer them. If you want to do it by email so we’re not clogging up the Bunker, that’s fine by me.

    • Frodis73

      Don’t worry, my comment was in moderation for quite awhile because I wrote s*x. LoL!! I’m to give you an email addy. I need to set up a free account just for sci stuff…I’ve been meaning to do it. I’ll get it to you soon.

      I kind of had a hunch about the role playing thing. :-/ I’m not convinced role playing works well in those cases. I think it’s one of those things that work well for certain types of ppl. I should have stayed a psych major..if I could only go back. I am fascinated by human behavior…prob why i’m obsessed with reading about sci. As for the genes, I def don’t think it’s black & white, one size fits all that some hoped it would be. Def would love to read anything you have on that for sure.

      • Stacy

        We can’t even use the s*x word anymore. Grrr. I couldn’t teach my classes under such censorship.

        I have a yahoo email account I use when I don’t want to give out my real email addy. I can give that to you, but I’m bad about remembering to check it regularly. I’d rather give you my real addy, but I don’t want to post it here (name is in it).

        I really enjoyed my psychology classes for my psychology B.A. I wish I’d taken more while doing my grad work. Hard to fit in with all the crime.

  • Stacy

    Sorry it took me so long to reply. Disqus buried your comment or something, so I didn’t see it until now as I’m making my way through all the posted comments again. Sorry Frodis.

    • MaxSpaceman

      the children of a Scilon getting a huge dose of being screamed at (Tone 40) in Scilonese. What a disaster for that poor child, with the deluded scilon mother.

      Wow Media_lush! Babies… I hope this “pushes some buttons” to use some Sciloon speak – I hope it makes some peeps MAD – cult babies. UGH!

    • Stacy

      Ugh. This is disgusting. One quote sticks out. Something about how it’s good to audit babies because the child just went through a death and it could’ve been a bad one.

      How much does this mess a kid up to be taught they’re an ancient thetan and just recently died before choosing this new meat sack? Presumably they’re asked to remember this death. Did anyone go through this at a young age?

      Jeez, it really is always worse than you think!

      • Todd Tomorrow

        You should read where pregnant clams will be directed to a funeral of a recently dead clams to get them to jump into their womb and take over the new meat body. And no I’m not kidding!

        • Stacy

          I’ve heard a few of those stories. Didn’t know about them advertising on Facebook though. That’s just bizarre. And so wrong.

              One minute you will be laughing your head off at the stupidity and the next you will be enraged at the carp that people post about their kids getting auditing.

            • Todd Tomorrow

              Yeah, some of it is just too much especially when it comes to children or overtly mentally ill people who’ve been brought into the cult. Some fun are their insipid wins. “I pulled into a parking lot and there it was a parking spot.”

            • TheMirrorThetan

              That’s an unfortunate side effect of Scientology isn’t it.

        • TheMirrorThetan

          I remember reading one were they were looking for someone with a pregnant cat because they wanted to get their old one back in its new body or something nutty like that.

          • Todd Tomorrow

            I do remember that one it was in, Clearwater. What was so stupid about that one is they obviously didn’t have their animals fixed but wanted another one.

            • TheMirrorThetan

              I love each of my animals past and present for themselves, not as replacements for the lost ones. And if they wanted another cat they should have gone to a shelter and saved a life.

            I’m posting this way back here for obvious reasons. Mark Plummer shared some of the Austin Film Society’s pics of the line going into the theater for Going Clear, and it’s not hard to figure out who you are. I don’t know if you care, but I thought I’d give you a heads up in case.

            • Vaquera

              I really appreciate the heads up. I purposefully did not use any photos of myself for my Bunker report, but I was aware that unless I covered up my visage would eventually show up somewhere. I made a specific point to get permission from Warrior and others to make sure they were ok that I share them with Tony for a post.

              Do you have a link to Mark Plummer’s photos?

    I love this article and appreciate that Jon wrote it and Tony has it here for everyone .

    It sums up so many of the basic traps and methods in Scientology – and the pitfalls of being an ex in a clear and needed fashion that I and many others strive to discover and remedy in our own lives.

    Scientology gave me nearly boundless narcissism and arrogance and the struggle to regain humility and compassion has been daunting and fraught with setbacks and falls flat on my face.

    In Scientology you are implanted as a genius with insight into great ( false ) secrets of life and the universe !

    Then as an ex you can try to hang onto your wounded pride and think you now REALLY know how the mind and life work !!

    Now , admittedly exes CAN have insight into what being under mind control etc. are like from a subjective view but often that pesky confirmation bias and lack of critical thinking and scientific approach can severely hamper progress .

    Not to mention the dozens of logical fallacies Hub implants repeatedly in the mental clones he makes .

    They make Scientologists and exes often VERY difficult to REASON with , as they use ad hominem and red herrings and the genetic fallacy and…extensively WITHOUT KNOWING IT !!!

    Look , I LOVE ( or at least do not hate ) a lot of exes but I would be doing everyone a huge disservice if I failed to mention the crucial tool Hub used to fool you and you need to gain to not only escape his hold but to even THINK logically !!!

    I list a lot of the fallacies Hub implants in Pissed It’s Not Your Fault !!!
    http://www.forum.exscn.net/showthread.php?36959-PISSED-IT-S-NOT-YOUR-FAULT-

    And after asking Jon and getting a lot of excellent info from him I wrote the Secret of Scientology Part 1 that has a lot of implants listed and I plan to add to and expand on that with further analysis of how the implant groups work together and are linked .

        Good point. Humor can fall flat, but if you can learn to laugh at these Hubbardisms, it may help. Maybe for some a good read would be The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, wherein it is determined that the answer to Life, the Universe and Everything is 42.

    And it is a truly great articLe by Jon. You have unraveled this baseball just about down to the cork in the middle.(or whatever it is in the middle). This is SO helpful. You are “As-is-ing” the thing out of existence, actually. I see the subject going from solid opaque, to fuzzy translucent, to a gelatinous clear, to wispy vapor as it begins to dissipate and vanish into the random waves of mere probable occurrence, from whence it all came, when assembled arond Lwrong’s twisted soul.
    I intend to retain the lessons learned, and your books and essays and articles will be there for future students of folly and scam and manipulation. Just awesome, top notch, and above and beyond work here, Jon.

  • Lady Squash

    Jon, you’ve done a brilliant job of putting forth so many of the mind benders. Thank you for that. The language was a big one for me. When I set about to free myself from Scientology think, I had trouble talking. I could only think of Scientology words. People must have thought I was dim witted because it took me so long to form a sentence. Of course, I could say “pass the salt”. But anything more complex was challenging. It’s taken years, but its much easier now.
    The phobia about other practices was another big one. I solved that one by buying tons of books by psychologists and psychiatrists. Many were wonderful. One of my favorites was “Learned Happiness” by Eric Seligman. It was amazing to me how much wisdom was in those books. I also listened to CDs by Pema Chodron, a Buddhist nun. I had many complex emotions in reaction to discovering this other world; a world that had been so maligned by Hubbard. I was both furious and delighted. Furious I had been so misled, so brainwashed. And so delighted to find that there was so much wisdom, real wisdom out there.
    Thank you for shining such a bright light so articulately on all this mind bending madness. Thank you for taking the time to retrieve, deconstruct and polish the mind bending prison, we have all had to deal with and are still dealing with. Such clarity is a gift. Thank you

    • Shelly Britt Corrias

      Well said, agree 100%. I experienced that just yesterday – grasping for a common descriptive word and the only one I could come up with was a Scn term no one would understand. Totally blew my train of thought. No big deal, really, but it made me suddenly nervous that I couldn’t make my brain work, so I changed the subject! I also had the other practices phobia – but I avoided books and I really need to start reading. Jon’s articles and all your comments here has taught me that I’m woefully ignorant about the mind, outside of all the false information in Scn. xo

  • Lady Squash

    I remember a very liberating moment. A Sea Org member was trying to convince me to watch a film that I did not want to watch. I felt sorry for him (he was just a kid), because I knew he might get in trouble if he couldn’t convince me. Anyway, every objection I gave, he had an answer for. I was getting annoyed by his insistence and finally I said, “Look, let me ask you something. Do I have a choice here?” He blurted out, “No!” And I saw the recognition in his eyes that he was doing something very impolite by trying to make me do something I didn’t want to do and very contrary to the stated goal of Scientology which was to return to the individual his own self-determinism. I smiled a wry smile at him. He went his way and I went mine. I hope that moment woke him up.

    “The aim of Scientology is to reduce the free individual to obedience to the orders and policies of Scientology. Quite simply put, it does not bring about “self-determinism” but “Ron-determinism,” where the follower (or Dev-OT) is in complete accord with the fantasies and fabrications of the Founder.” – Jon Atack

    Great piece, Jon. Just getting to read it now. I’d add to your analysis if infinity-valued logic that by making the question of right and wrong essentially meaningless it further undermines the victim’s ability to reason and come to decisions thereby making him or her that much more likely to abandon thinking entirely and blindly follow the puppet master.

    To Jon Atack: those implants are so unbelievably spot on!

    And who better through sleight of hand to implant us than the person who said he was going to un-implant us!

    Trickery and misdirection.

    Re “space is a viewpoint of dimension” — this is very similar to the definition that comes out of the evolution of art as Europe exited the Dark Ages and entered the Renaissance where perspective became, well, a viewpoint of dimension!

    If I can find the exact reference again, I will post it.

    But in the meantime, it should be noted that this is something that Hubbard apparently stole from other schools of thought, altering it just enough so that (a) it concealed his plagiarism and (b) was nonsensical enough so that everyone thought it was deep — thought that the emperor indeed wore clothes!

    The longstanding art analysis is something like “perspective is a viewpoint of dimension” — again, I’ll post the reference if I can find it. Before the introduction of perspective into European art, the images were “flat,” two-dimensional, and lacked the lines of perspective that most of us are familiar with now. Those perspective lines, along with vanishing points are what let us create drawings and paints that capture three dimensions on a two-dimensional surface.

    Hubbard found nothing new here. His “axiom” was quite likely stolen from art history.

    Never been involved with Co$ but having lived in and around Hollywood since 1989, had many encounters with random SeaOrg members (“What’s going on? Is the Navy docked in port?” I said the first time I saw them wandering around Hollywood Boulevard), and personality test barkers. I stumbled upon Bent Corydon’s book in a Tower Records (God how I miss Tower Records), and got really mad after reading it. This was even before the internet, so there was no other place to get this information. Fortunately all this information has come into the public sphere now. Kind of a general comment, but after reading Corydon’s book and all the other stuff since then, I’ve come to the realization the LRH’s fantasy world was not only ineffective and damaging to all who participated, but also was a bizarre fun-house-mirror version of reality. Alice in Wonderland is great book for them to use in the tech. I’m sure the irony of this was lost on most. But the Co$ takes the worst aspects of most of the institutions in our society and piles them on top of each other in one giant stew of pain. Hear me out. I’m talking about the worst aspects of religion (elitism, irrationality, dogmatism, discouragement of critical thinking, pointless hierarchy); science (elitism, obscurantism); the military (blind obedience; excessive regulation, pointless hieracrchy, love of word salad acronyms) institutions of learning (rote learning, repetition, boredom, lack of expression and creativity) and the government (bureaucracy, love word-salad acronyms). I am not saying that there are no good points to religion, the military, schools and the government. There are many. But the Co$ seems to make a point of combining all the worst parts of each with none of the good aspects.

      VERY astute observation!!!

      I agree 100%, and I believe these points are key to understanding LRH and his monstrous creation. All that is left is to wonder to what extent this was deliberate on the part of Hubbard.
      I wrote somewhere before that LRH, as a narcissist, would have needed to re-write his history and his memories to present himself in a favorable light. His narcissism was remarkable in that he re-wrote his history in concrete form, actually re-creating “in his own image” the powerful sources of his frustration, namely, medicine/science, the government and the navy, and placing them under his tight control (I refer of course to the Tech, the Church management, and the Sea Org. Now that you mention it, academia should be included. Religion, not having been a formative source of frustration for LRH, was not part of his initial motivation for creating Scientology, but an expedient afterthought). Did he consciously incorporate the worst aspects of his nemeses into his creation? What does this say about his opinion of his followers: an unconscious contempt or just a secret one?
      LRH considered himself the Great Thetan, the Source of everything. Later, he was to write that the thetans who created the universe got trapped in their own creation and it became their reality. An unconscious plea for sympathy, an acknowledgment that his creation had consumed him? I wonder…

    Someone should pass out copies of Freud’s correspondence with some of his students, Jung, in particular– Here are the founding fathers of modern Psychiatry (though of course, they’d really been at it for hundred of milllions, if not Trillions of years (The beard covered his age up, you know– Freud was no fool– plus he smoked those cigars which kept him youthful and free from the influences of perfume!), the very people who created psychotherapy and the schools of it which exist until this very day, and they cannot agree on a blessed thing! It can get very personal at times, but it often seems that the only thing that can agree on is the capital importance of their work and of the great need for curative procedures for the disorders of the mind…

    The minutes of the meetings where they laid out the plans for the Holocaust must either have been lost or never taken down– No need you see, in the face of such total agreement!

    Fantastic work Mr. Atack. What a service you are doing and what an amazing analysis and story you have to tell. I plan to order multiple copies of new “Blue Sky” for xmas. A good read for all. Thanks again for your diligence.

  • Verve

    Wow. I only got 1/2 way through before my head starting hurting. I just cannot understand nonsense on such a stupid level. I can understand crackwhore addiction (no, I’ve never been there), but Hubbard makes so little sense that snorting PCP may help clean your mind.
    (For those who don’t know exactly what I’m talking about, it’s about really bad drugs.)

    This is my first post here and is completely off topic, so apologies in advance for that

    I’ve been out for a few years now and one of the things i’ve begun to notice the more i learn about mind control and programming etc is that society as a whole basically operates on the same rules and tricks as the cult i left. It’s a case of out of the frying pan and into the fire and is extremely unsettling. Has anyone else had this feeling or experience?

      Yes! It´s good to wake up. Continue 🙂

    An amazing testimony on a spell caster who brought my husband back to me.. My name is Natasha Johnson,i live in Florida,USA,and I’m happily married to a lovely and caring husband ,with two kids.A very big problem occurred in my family seven months ago,between me and my husband .so terrible that he took the case to court for a divorce.he said that he never wanted to stay with me again,and that he didn’t love me anymore.So he packed out of the house and made me and my children passed through severe pain. I tried all my possible means to get him back,after much begging,but all to no avail.and he confirmed it that he has made his decision,and he never wanted to see me again. So on one evening,as i was coming back from work,i met an old friend of mine who asked of my husband .So i explained every thing to him,so he told me that the only way i can get my husband back,is to visit a spell caster,because it has really worked for him too.So i never believed in spell,but i had no other choice,than to follow his advice. Then he gave me the email address of the spell caster whom he visited.{bravespellcaster@gmail.com}. So the next morning,i sent a mail to the address he gave to me,and the spell caster assured me that i will get my husband back the next day.What an amazing statement!! I never believed,so he spoke with me,and told me everything that i need to do. Then the next morning, So surprisingly, my husband who didn’t call me for the past seven {7}months,gave me a call to inform me that he was coming back.So Amazing!! So that was how he came back that same day,with lots of love and joy,and he apologized for his mistake,and for the pain he caused me and my children. Then from that day,our relationship was now stronger than how it were before,by the help of a spell caster.
