Scientology Fronts: Delphian Schools, sntp.net, et al

Scientology is both immoral and socially obnoxious … It is dangerous because it is out to capture people, especially children and impressionable young people, and indoctrinate and brainwash them so that they become the unquestioning captives and tools of the cult …

The auditing – the processing – begins at an early age. […] In “The Second Dynamic” 1982 edition under the heading “Children’s Confessional Ages 6 – 12″ is a “processing check for use on children”. It is a very long and vigorous interrogation. […] I agree with Dr. Clark [an expert witness] that ‘Scientology training is training for slavery’.

Delphian School, Oregon The other day while data mining the interweb, I came across an online PDF of Charlotte Iserbyt’s The Deliberate Dumbing Down of America. I’d forgotten how good that book is and got caught up reading it once again. As I reached the passage that highly recommends the book The Leipzig Connection, this time I decided to see whether it was available on Amazon.

It was; and the first review immediately caught my attention:

An Essential Guide to Understanding This Book, June 7, 2001 …

This book, although rooted in fact, was part of a continuing attempt by the Church of Scientology to discredit professional psychology and psychiatry by any means possible. The book was published by the Delphian Foundation, a Scientology organization that runs a church school outside a small town in rural Oregon, and its sole purpose is to slander, by any means possible, modern psychology and anyone and everything associated with it.

While there was indeed a Wilhelm Wundt who was influential in the growth of experimental psychology, and while this new technology was backed financially as part of the Rockefeller family’s attempt to clear its name through public philanthropy, what underlies the thesis of the book is the implicit theory of conspiracy that has played such a large role in the growth of Scientology and in the activities of the group as a whole.

I would advise most strongly that the message of this book be taken with a grain of salt, as the book as written is not what it purports to be and its underlying purpose leads one on a different trajectory intellectually and factually than it might otherwise appear to do.

Buyer beware – question everything in this book, particularly all supposed “facts” as presented .

What You Didn’t Know About Scientology

All men shall be my slaves.
All women shall submit to my charms.
All mankind shall grovel at my feet.

– L. Ron Hubbard Affirmations

There has been a revival of interest in Scientology recently, largely driven by the ministrations of Hollywood jackanapes Tom Cruise.

An episode of South Park titled ‘Trapped in the Closet’ aired in late 2005. The cartoon featured Scientologists Nicole Kidman and John Travolta trying to coax Cruise out of a closet, a reference to rumors concerning his sexual preference. Also featured was an L. Ron Hubbard character denigrating Cruise’s acting ability. The extremely litigious Cruise immediately threatened Paramount with legal action, and it is unlikely that the episode will air again.

Immanentizing the Eschaton: The Gnostic Myth of Darwinism and Socio-political Utopianism

Featured-Royal-Society-Freemasonry

With the publication of The Da Vinci Code and the release of the Matrix films, Gnosticism has experienced a cultural revival in the West. Is the rise of Gnostic thinking simply a fleeting trend, like the outrageous clothing that Britney Spears or Christina Aguilera wear one day and never don again? Perhaps. Yet, it is interesting to note that the popularization of Darwinian evolution preceded Gnosticism’s ascendancy in the West. The significance of this fact becomes evident when one reads the words of Dr. Wolfgang Smith:

“As a scientific theory, Darwinism would have been jettisoned long ago. The point, however, is that the doctrine of evolution has swept the world, not on the strength of its scientific merits, but precisely in its capacity as a Gnostic myth. It affirms, in effect, that living beings created themselves, which is in essence a metaphysical claim… Thus, in the final analysis, evolutionism is in truth a metaphysical doctrine decked out in scientific garb. In other words, it is a scientistic myth. And the myth is Gnostic, because it implicitly denies the transcendent origin of being; for indeed, only after the living creature has been speculatively reduced to an aggregate of particles does Darwinist transformism become conceivable. Darwinism, therefore, continues the ancient Gnostic practice of depreciating ‘God, the Father Almighty, Creator of Heaven and earth.’ It perpetuates, if you will, the venerable Gnostic tradition of ‘Jehovah bashing.’ And while this in itself may gladden Gnostic hearts, one should not fail to observe that the doctrine plays a vital role in the economy of Neo-Gnostic thought, for only under the auspices of Darwinist ‘self-creation’ does the Good News of ‘self-salvation’ acquire a semblance of sense.” (242-43)

In light of this intriguing observation, one could view the current rise of Gnosticism as the natural corollary of Darwinism’s unquestionable epistemological primacy in the West. The current Gnostic revival could represent the next stage of Darwinism’s metastasis.

Manipulating Matter: The Scientific Dictatorship as a Project in the Reconfiguration of Reality

Featured-Techne

by Phillip D. Collins ©, Feb. 15th, 2005

In the article entitled “The Ascendancy of the Scientific Dictatorship”, we examined the transmogrification of the elite’s religious power structure into a technocratic oligarchy legitimized predominantly by science. The history and background of this “scientific dictatorship” is a conspiracy, created and micro-managed by the historical tide of Darwinism, which has its foundations in Freemasonry. In this article, we shall examine the “scientific dictatorship” as an enormous project in the re-sculpting of reality itself.

The Technocracy

Freemason Aldous Huxley coined the term “scientific dictatorship” and presented an allegorized version of the concept in his famous roman ‘a clef entitled Brave New World. Huxley was mentored by Freemason H.G. Wells, who also presented a fictionalized “scientific dictatorship” under the appellation of the “Technocracy.” This is an interesting designation for a world government managed by functional elites and scientists. It is derived from the Greek word techne, which means craft. Given Wells’ membership in the Craft of Freemasonry, the synchronicity becomes apparent.

Moreover, the term craft is associated with witchcraft or wicca. From the term wicca, one derives the word wicker (Hoffman, 63). Examining this word a little closer, Michael Hoffman explains: “The word wicker has many denotations and connotations, one of which is ‘to bend,’ as in the ‘bending’ of reality'” (Hoffman, 63). This is especially interesting when considering the words of Mark Pesce, co-inventor of Virtual Reality Modeling Language. Pesce writes: “The enduring archetype of techne within the pre-Modern era is magic, of an environment that conforms entirely to the will of being” (Pesce).

Fiction as a Precursor to Fact: Sci-fi “Predictive Programming” and the Emergent World Religion

Featured-Marion-Gottesfeld-Room-University-Denver

By Phillip D. Collins ©, Feb. 6th, 2005

Aldous Huxley first presented the “scientific dictatorship” to the public imagination in his book Brave New World. In Dope, Inc., associates of political dissident Lyndon LaRouche claim that Huxley’s book was actually a “mass appeal” organizing document written “on behalf of one-world order” (Dope, Inc. 538). The book also claims the United States is the only place where Huxley’s “science fiction classic” is taught as an allegorical condemnation of fascism (Dope, Inc. 538). If this is true, then the “scientific dictatorship” presented within the pages of his 1932 novel Brave New World is a thinly disguised roman a clef–a novel that thinly veils real people or events–awaiting tangible enactment.

Such is often the case with “science fiction” literature. According to researcher Michael Hoffman, this literary genre is instrumental in the indoctrination of the masses into the doctrines of the elite:

“Traditionally, ‘science fiction’ has appeared to most people as an adolescent genre, the province of time-wasting fantasies. This has been the great strength of this genre as a vehicle for the inculcation of the ideology favored by the Cryptocracy. As J.H. Towsen points out in Clowns, only when people think they are not buying something can the real sales pitch begin. While it is true that with the success of NASA’s Gemini space program and the Apollo moon flights more serious attention and respectability was accorded ‘science fiction,’ nonetheless in its formative seeding time, from the late 19th century through the 1950s, the predictive program known as ‘science fiction’ had the advantage of being derided as the solitary vice of misfit juveniles and marginal adults.” (205)

Thus, “science fiction” is a means of conditioning the masses to accept future visions that the elite wish to tangibly enact. This process of gradual and subtle inculcation is dubbed “predictive programming.” Hoffman elaborates: “Predictive programming works by means of the propagation of the illusion of an infallibly accurate vision of how the world is going to look in the future” (205). Also dubbed “sci-fi inevitabilism” by Hoffman, predictive programming is analogous to a virus that infects its hosts with the false belief that it is:

  • Useless to resist central, establishment control.
  • Or it posits a counter-cultural alternative to such control which is actually a counterfeit, covertly emanating from the establishment itself.
  • That the blackening (pollution) of earth is as unavoidable as entropy.
  • That extinction (‘evolution”) of the species is inevitable.
  • That the reinhabitation of the earth by the “old gods” (Genesis 6:4), is our stellar scientific destiny. (8)
