For $100, Scientologist sorcerer will share secret of living to 150 (and we have the secret!)

[Rey Robles on CNN’s Believer]

You might remember that we were not very impressed with Reza Aslan’s short-lived Believer series that aired in 2017 on CNN, in particular its dishonest episode about Scientology. Admitting that he had “a soft spot” for Scientology, Aslan pretended that the teeny tiny “indie” movement of Scientologists was so potent, it might become one of the world’s great religions some day.

He was bullshitting. If Aslan had been more forthcoming, he might have admitted that one of the groups he visited, in Reno, Nevada, had just 36 people show up at one of its recent annual conventions.

But it was a hoot when Aslan visited the colorful leader of that Reno Freezone group, Rey Robles, who acted spooky, said he was “OT 9,” and let Reza know that he had “sorcerer powers.”

Sadly for Aslan, CNN canceled a planned second season of Believer when he called the new president a bad name on Twitter. As for Robles, we managed to run into him at the Saturday picnic hosted by Janis Gillham Grady during our HowdyCon weekend in Los Angeles. We told him that we had enjoyed his CNN appearance.

And now, we felt compelled to give you an update about Rey after we saw what he posted this week at his Facebook page.


It was an advertisement that he’ll be in Seattle this month, where he’s going to reveal that, after reviewing little-known L. Ron Hubbard “tech,” he’s made a startling discovery…


Please join the Seattle Tech Support group in welcoming guest speaker Rey Robles for his brand new presentation: Defeating Death.

Rey is a senior Freezone tech terminal with decades of training and experience in tech. He’ll be joining us from Reno for the premiere of his brand-new presentation, Defeating Death.

Saturday and Sunday
October 12 & 13, 2019
Seattle, WA

Saturday: Presentation from 10:00AM to 4:00PM
Sunday: Auditing and consultations with Rey

Rey has lived an extraordinary life helping people from all walks of life with the tech. He recently woke up to the fact that it’s time we apply the tech to the most important thing: Living long, healthy lives. He’s dug up all sorts of lost LRH tech on the subject and wants to share it with us. This is totally new, never-broadly-seen information.

He’ll share these secrets:

— How to overcome the endless cycle of life and death.
— Avoiding pitfalls of the between-lives area.

— A new, important point to handle even if you’ve done the between-lives handling!
— How to extend your current life to 150 years or more.

Rey will share transcripts from a rare LRH lecture called “Death” that was never broadly disseminated. He’ll share with us an auditing procedure on this very topic as well as tech you can use in life.

You can make your appointment now or on Saturday to see Rey personally on Sunday. He will stay all weekend for sessions and consultations.

Cost for Saturday: $100 per attendee payable at the door
Location: [redacted] Ask for address and directions.

This fascinates us, in part because we happen to have a copy of that 1957 “Death” lecture by Hubbard and it’s a doozie. After seeing this flier, we couldn’t wait to dive into the lecture for the secrets it must contain that could allow us to live a century and a half.

We thought you’d want to dig them out as well, and so we’re embedding a copy of the lecture for your perusal. We can’t wait to read your observations about what Hubbard says here, and please help us figure out what “tech” is revealed in this talk that will allow us to tack on numerous additional decades to our lifespan. It’s so exciting!

Part 1

Part 2


Part 3

Let’s put together some quotes from Hubbard’s lecture. Which of these is the secret to defeating death and living to 150?

What happens to him when he dies? Well, basically all that happens is that a separation occurs between the thetan and the body. That’s basically all that happens. He, however, takes with him old tin cans and rattling chains and bric-a-brac and other energy phenomena that he feels he cannot do without and stashes this in the next body that he picks up.

There is such a thing as a cycle of action however, and this cycle of action in Scientology is create-survive-destroy. At the shoulder of the curve an individual is mostly interested in surviving. Early on the curve he is interested in creating. And at the end of the curve, why, he is interested in the disposition of the remains. Now, this happens whether you’re speaking of a building, a tree, anything else. We get this same cycle of action, create-survive-destroy. Well, when we apply this cycle of action to this – these various parts I described, we get a death of the body, a partial death of the mind, and a forgettingness on the part of the spiritual being. Which is, in itself, again, a type of death. So we get this.

We are actually indebted for a considerable amount of our material to the odd fact that I have been officially dead twice. I don’t think I’ve ever mentioned this very much before, but I died in an operation one time back in the 30s and went outside above the street and felt sorry for myself, decided they couldn’t do this to me – the heart – body’s heart had stopped beating. And I went back and I grabbed the body by the several – there’s a bunch of interesting mechanisms in the head that restimulate a body’s heartbeats and so forth, and I just took hold of them and then said “Come on here,” and snapped the body back to life.

Now, exactly what happens when death occurs? I say many people have experienced this. I’ve gone further than that – I have plumbed into this pretty deeply. What with? Oh, E-Meters, checking up with people, checking into children and so on. It’s been a rather thoroughgoing research on the matter. I mean, it was a rather tremendous effort that was put out.

You can pick up on the track times when a fellow backed out of his head and was mad as the dickens. And just kicked the stuffings out of the fellow who killed him. Made spirits and this whole theory of spirits very unpopular. People tried to forget this, so when they run around killing people they would get no immediate kickback. Basic reason why one would want that out of the way, isn’t it? When one committed a crime, why, one wouldn’t have to suffer for it. I’m not saying this is the basis of Christianity but it is true that man has capitalized on this phenomena enormously – the phenomena surrounding death.

The ordinary entrance is sometime around what we call the assumption, and the assumption occurs within a few minutes after birth in most cases. The baby is born and then a thetan picks the baby up. That’s the usual proceeding. However, this thetan could have hung around for a long time. And you say, “How do people behave?” You ask the same question of how do thetans behave when they suddenly haven’t got a body. They behave like people. They’ll hang around people, they’ll see somebody who’s pregnant and they’ll follow them down the street. That’s right. They’ll hang around the entrance to an accident ward and find some body that is all banged up and the being that had that body has taken off or is about to or is in a frame of mind to, and does so, and pick up this body and pretend to be somebody’s husband or something of the sort.

Now, until 13 or 1400 the between-lives area operations weren’t thriving at all. They got very few customers. That’s right. And then they started to pick it up more and more. They had to knock witchcraft totally out of Europe before the between-lives area clubs or whatever they were, started thriving. They had to knock out any idea of demons and spirits. In other words, they had to make one feel guilty for hanging around, admiring the trees with no body to look through. And they succeeded in doing this. And if you look it over carefully you’ll find out that you could make a little kid sick just by talking to him about this sort of thing.

Now, sometimes a thetan gets so furious that he gets hallucinatory. He goes round killing his enemies in all directions and they don’t even exist. Motto: have your reality in good condition before you die.

So where’s the secret to defeating death? Did you find it? Let us know!

“I don’t know whether parts of the body will rebuild or not. Auditors have hazarded that and they’re working on it. They’re trying to figure it out, trying to get the third tooth to grow where a tooth’s been pulled, trying to get this to happen and that to happen and trying to get a finger to grow, something like that. People’s limbs have lengthened two, three, four inches; their spines have lengthened, their height’s grown. And I’ve seen places on the body fill in where chunks had been pulled out. But I haven’t seen a whole limb grow, or I haven’t seen half a limb grow, I mean, and complete itself and be a full limb again. I don’t know. Possibly something to do with structural pattern or the bud or something has to be implanted along the line or something. One of these days we’ll find out what that is and then we’ll all have two heads.” — L. Ron Hubbard, October 4, 1953


Overheard in the FreeZone

“From my understanding of the tech, Thetans have no sex so sexual attraction itself is a GE abberation. In fact, thetan’s interest in human sexual intercourse and the associated sensations is one of the main reasons we became stuck inside our current bodies (blanketing, putting out tractor beams, etc.) Based on this and the fact that the 2nd Dynamic exists, I would say Hubbard believed that sex for any reason besides creation was abberative.”
