The Way To Create Power

"An individual’s ability to generate power by his own consideration depends utterly upon his ability to position himself It’s as simple as that."

- Transcript of the lecture "Exteriorization", by L. Ron Hubbard, 1955

This sums up the purpose and aim of Mr. Hubbard’s philosophy. To solidly fix the "thetan" and demonstrate the "power" that it has by being so fixed.

Reality is what we make it. Making something so "real" that nothing else exists will create the illusion of power and strength. But the truth of the matter is that positioning oneself does the exact opposite of what Mr. Hubbard claims. The only power that can be demonstrated is the power of one’s own delusions.

It’s as simple as that.1
