Stuck In Time

Believe it or not, Swami Hubbard is stuck in time. Completely locked up and and frozen. The funny thing is that the Church of Scientology, Inc., actually PRESERVES the Swami’s medium of regret. It’s called tape recordings.

Personally, I’ve never enjoyed the Swami’s spiel, but with the advent of the Free Zone Bible Association, the past has come alive like never before. With their posting to the Internet of the transcripts of Scriptural Spiel, word searching has taken on new meanings.

Tape transcripts are the preferred reference in discovering the barely concealed glee of insanity that the Swami demonstrates so skillfully. A tape recording is a great place to pick up what the speaker is really trying to get across to the audience. Every stutter, every personal insight, every wild claim is laid bare for all to hear.

Scientologists have been trained to overlook the many inconsistencies and "off topic" items that always seem to crop up in the Swami’s lectures. Leaving these "thetans" behind, it becomes quite easy to see what the con artist is trying to do.

In a nutshell, the Swami hypnotizes and induces suggestions into the audience of the validity of his own delusions. It may be a bit cruel to call what he had, "delusions" as the fabricated story that he penned is not delusional nor is it exact science. It is a good science fiction plot gone bad.

On a bored day, if you happen to notice that your "thetan" is having thoughts about the Swami, so open up your favorite word search program and look up interesting words, like "swami", "science", "cults". You might be amazed at what you will find.1
