Scientology and Oiliness: More Renderings from the Super Power Building

OilinessTable.JPG

Yesterday, we made public a leak of major proportions: we obtained hundreds of new renderings and architectural drawings of Scientology's $100 million "Super Power Building" -- what the church calls "Flag Mecca" -- in Clearwater, Florida.

Of all the "perceptics" installations on the building's "super power" fifth floor that we learned about, one that seems to disturb readers the most is the notion of an "oiliness table." We're still not sure what Scientologists will be subjected to when they have their sense of "oiliness" checked, but we found this rendering of the apparatus, and we have additional, never-before-seen images from the building after the jump...

Before we show any more images, however, we thought we'd roll credits first. As in, we found this list of who was responsible for turning church leader David Miscavige's dreams into reality. As of 2009, these were the firms on board...

WhosWho.JPG

Another of the perceptics installations that confounds us is an egg-shaped room with the name "Endocrine States." We're still not much closer to understanding what goes on inside it, but going back through our files, we found this cutaway schematic. Can anyone make sense of what's going on here?

EndocrineStatesCutaway.JPG

Another of L. Ron Hubbard's 57 "perceptics" -- human senses -- he called "gravitic." We found this rendering of the fifth floor's "gravitic elements" installation, and that vertical portion with holes is referred to as a "climbing wall."

GraviticElements.JPG

What would a Mecca to Scientology be without acknowledging its various front groups? We found these circular rooms on the first floor, with various tributes to organizations that sometimes play down their connection to the church: Narconon, Criminon, Applied Scholastics ("APS"), and the The Way to Happiness Foundation ("TWTH"). On the other hand, they do seem shoved into a dead-end little room next to the larger, central circle, which pays homage to Scientology's "orgs" (churches), Volunteer Ministers (who get sent to natural disasters to perform voodoo -- "touch assists" -- and hand out literature), Scientology's mini-orgs (Scientology Missions International) and WISE (World of Scientology Enterprises), which tries to convince businesses that L. Ron Hubbard was some kind of organizational genius.

GlobalLocator.JPG

Getting back to oiliness -- we just can't seem to get enough of it -- let's put that oiliness table in some context. Here's an overhead view of one room in the fifth floor "perceptics" section, and you can see that the oiliness table shares space with a "friction table," as well as four other stations: heat, cold, pressure, and pain. (At the bottom, you can see the doors to the smell and taste walls.)

PercepticsOilinessFriction.JPG

Wait a minute -- a pain station? We looked into that further, and found drawings that indicate that the corner counter will feature multiple "spike plates" which can pivot. Some of them are labeled in this fashion: "Combined Plate" (CP), Hot-Cold-Electric, Hot, and Cold Versions. Are Scientologists going to get shocked with hot electrified spike plates?

PainStation.JPG

Spike plates, oiliness and friction tables, spinning subjects on a gyroscope -- that fifth floor is starting to sound more and more like some kind of S&M dungeon for wealthy Scientology celebrities -- run, Katie, run!

Let's go back to the first floor, where there's a lot of nostalgia going on for L. Ron Hubbard and his days at sea. First, we noticed this grand wall of tributes to the Commodore and his many accomplishments. The wall is so long, we had to snip it into two different scans, first the left portion and then the right, with a grand entrance into the Atrium between them...

LRHHistory1.JPG

LRHHistory2.JPG

And we were a little surprised that readers didn't seem to have more to say about the small Sea Org museum outside the Commodore's office, which includes a diorama of what it was like to sail on the Apollo back in the day. The recreation of a deck from the ship includes an actual lifeboat replica, and here's a schematic...

ReplicaLifeBoat.JPG

And finally, we wanted to give a better indication of just how stupendous is the sixth floor dome -- which extends into the seventh floor -- which is one giant room for running around an illuminated column. First, here's another look at that artist's rendering for what the experience is going to be like...

RunningProgram1.JPG

Now, we're going to reproduce the entire sixth floor's schematic so you can see just how much space is dedicated to that running dome in a building that takes up a full city block. Those tiny rooms that surround the running space are all auditing chambers. Hundreds of the little rooms are also found on other floors -- Miscavige is optimistic about the huge numbers of people he expects to use this facility.

RunningWide.JPG

We're still sifting through architectural drawings in the hundreds of files that were leaked to us, so we may have other surprises soon. But check back often because all hell continues to break loose for Scientology as its membership appears to be in the grip of a crisis in faith. Coming soon: more escapes from the asylum!

What caught my initial attention about Scientology, back in 1975 when I walked into the Phoenix Scientology "church", was it's bold claims of methodically and gradually and scientifically leading people to out of the body experiences, supposedly guaranteed by Hubbard.   (The L rundowns promotion is the boldest which quotes Hubbard saying when he oversaw the L rundowns, he always ensured his patient/parishioners got the out of the body experience with viisio----but just ask Karen Delacarierre how often that happened!)

 

Scientology most fails at  delivering the out of the body soul travel ability, that supposedly Hubbard says we all possess, and we only need to do his Bridge to Total Freedom to regain this ability.   

 

"Be 3 feet back of your head!"    Is a Hubbard auditing (pseudo quack therapy) command instruction they give each other,  but it never works.     

 

Nobody's flying out of their heads at will, due to Hubbard's pseudo quack therapy nor because of Hubbard's Xenu exorcism, nor due to these "super power" gizmos.

 

If only these Scientologists  were to go out of their bodies due to any of Hubbard's quack scientific spiritual lineup, then they'd not be such fraudsters who are left holding Hubbard's bag of tricks.  

 

This building is the super power sucker building, playing on the ever hopeful Scientologists trying to regain their super soul abilities.   It ain't gonna happen.

If one understands the basic concepts of Scientology, 1) we have lived before and 2) there are engrams (moments of impact/injury with pain and/or unconsciousness that affect our behavor and 3) that severe engrams were called "implants" where heavy electronics and picture flashing were use along with hypnotic commands (earlier than this lifetime), then one would understand that since the purpose is to run out those engrams/implants we would NOT need a machine to do it.  Machines were used in those times when implants were given to cause abberation.  This new machine as part of Super Power with its body spinning and picture flashing is NOT Scientology.  It was not thought up by Ron Hubbard.  Only the title was, this content that the COS plans to put people through is reverse Scientology.  Won't run out the bad things, will simply stick one to ones body and lay in false perception.  It is a crime on humanity and should not be permitted.  It is also mixing practices with NASA tech and that is a break of The Auditor's Code.

I was wondering and I'm not making a joke out of this. Is it possible scilons believe BT's have a minute amount of oil on them not consistent with human body oils due to the volcano blast? Is this "oiliness table" the next scam they're going to pull on the sci-public (detecting 75 million year old atomic thetan oil) for a large price. $$$$

I mean, it seems like the next feasible scam because sci's actually talk to and command lost thetans (that are bothering them) to leave and go to the hospital and pick-up a dropped (dead) body. So, who knows what they're capable of believing?

$cilons are in desperate need to continue the scam with new and exciting futuristic gadgets to lure in the sci's for even bigger buck$. Let's face it, $cientology for a so called futuristic cult/religion is behind the times. The wog world has become more advance than them. So, they need to step-up their con game..if they want to continue to exist.

What many scientologists do not fully understand is that this Super Power Rundown is to getthem and all members Clearing the planet. It's supposed to remove all inhibition and barriers to the power within them to create a new world. It really isn't for them that Hubbard wrote this. It's to get people disseminating Scientology and actually getting people into the orgs, lol. Even the promo pieces I have received state this in so many words. Here is a fair use excerpt of the reference

Confidential   SUPER POWER RUNDOWN SERIESEXECUTIVE DIRECTIVE 17 December 1978Ron's Journal 30 1978 - THE YEAR OF LIGHTNING FAST NEW TECH "SUPER POWER. A Super fantastic, but confidential series of rundowns that can be done on anyone whether Dianetic Clear or not that puts the person into fantastic shape unleashing the super power of a thetan. This is the means that puts Scientologists into a new realm of ability enabling them to create the New World. It puts world Clearing within reach in the future. This is a parallel rundown to Power in Saint Hills which is taken by the Dianetic Clear. It consists of 12 separate highpower rundowns which are brand new and enter realms of the tech never before approached. Power is still very much in use on the Grade Chart but is for those who didn't go Clear on Dianetics. Super Power will be delivered at Saint Hills within the next 6 weeks as we are right now super grooming the Super Power auditors in a special international course. It will be delivered in almost all languages [..]"

[..] "SUPER POWER. There is no reason a Dianetic Clear should be denied the powerful gains which research made available in '78 (see above). For the public who have gone Dianetic Clear, and those who haven't, Saint Hills will become a mecca where they obtain the most excellent results obtainable in Super Power." [..]

The rest of the reference goes into further details of the program attributes. It can be found at the clearing (dot) org archive.

You know, all these articles, and that this SuperPower sub subject seems so brazenly science fiction, makes me think of another whole bunch of Hubbard's writings, in his final years that were even more extravagently science fictionesque, but there's not much in the public domain to show for it, like there will be with the SuperPower building.

But Tony, there are half a dozen of us ex members who've read Hubbard's "computer advices" traffic, which include the great story of the Duke of Chug.   He's kinda similar to Xenu, in that the Duke of Chug is a bad guy character.  

There's a relationship with the old zillions of years ago space civilization computer system that detected the Duke of Chug's bad deeds, with the Hubbard orders for the Scientology church computer system, called INCOMM, so that the INCOMM system is supposed to match the same past space civilization's computer system that spotted and dealt with the Duke of Chug!

And Hubbard wanted Scientology to have that computer system, because he was pretty pissed at how bad the church management was failing to deal with things over the years!

Hubbard used his science fiction pastlives memories to do all sorts of improvements and things to help Scientology succeed!

Chuck, when are you going to write a book? It would be the best memoir of an ex yet, as you've got an excellent grasp of Scn management tech and structure - a woefully underdiscussed topic.

And you can speak knowledgably about the madness of INCOMM, which is a story in and of itself.

John P.

After seeing the rendering of this particular implement, I'm struck by several things.  

First, it would have been really tough to be one of the senior associates at Gensler tasked with working directly with the client.  Can you imagine how hard it would have been to sit in a meeting with some Sea Org goober who is trying to explain the requirements for an oiliness table, and you're sitting there trying to write all this stuff down without completely losing it?  Near impossible, I'd guess.  Not unlike the Roman Centurions in "Life of Brian" trying not to giggle whenever Pilate lisped something outrageous.  (Uh oh. Now I'm beset with the image of David Miscavige as Pilate moaning something about his friend "Biggus Dickus in Hollywood,"  whoever that might be.)    

But the junior associates back at headquarters who had to translate the notes into diagrams probably had a ton of fun.  Wonder whose idea the various knobs and orifices on the "oiliness table" were.  Pity the poor contractor who takes the heat if the finished product isn't perfect.  

Second, the list of 57 "perceptics" was probably thrown together by Hubbard in about 5 minutes in one of his pill-popping, hard-drinking bouts in his trailer in Creston.  If Hubbard were still alive, he'd probably admit that the list was just a set of random ideas to clean up later.  Now these morons are spending millions trying to bring this list of random ideas to reality to demonstrate that Scientology is "true."  This is like the idiots who built the "Creation Museum" in Kentucky to help program their kids to believe that the Earth is literally and exactly 5,732 years old (or whatever their math says).  After all, if you saw an exhibit at the Creation Museum showing cavemen and dinosaurs frolicking together, that pretty much settles whether humans and dino's coexisted.

Is it really 57? Was that chosen because it is easy to remember as per the original Manchurian Candidate?

FOTF2012

The perceptics are interesting to me. If one "feels" tired or hungry, that is some sort of perception, but it does not seem to be one of the five senses. 

On the other hand, the perceptic of gravitic / gravity seems to really be a subset of "feel" since it is an interpretation of the feeling of relative pressure on body parts (in addition to vestibular nerve processing of inner ear data). 

In other words gravity and balance perceptics and even sense of motion are really more mental constructs than actual perceptions. Take for example the common experience of sitting at a traffic light with foot on brake, only to panic as you realize that your car is rolling -- you feel it, you are sure of it. Then you realize you are still and it is the car next to you that is moving.I think it would interesting to take the perceptics one-by-one and analyze them in terms of what we know today about neurophysiology and the fallablity of senses and unreliability of our mental constructions -- what we perceive is not necessarily real. 

hgc
hgc

The notion of "five" senses is long outdated, and it's actually more like 9 or 10. Gravity is known  to us through our sense of balance and acceleration. 

Oiliness, on the other hand -- I got nothing. Why would you try to analyze Hubbard's 57 varieties when he plucked them out of his ass while rooting around for a plum. You may as well try to calculate how many thetans can balance on the head of a pin.

I really believe these devises have been developed to further $cientologys (upper management) thirst for human mind-control on the $ci-public. They already control all aspects of the sci's life by monitoring, intimidating them with the e-meter and watching they're every move with hidden miniature video cameras. Plus, their telephone calls are wiretapped and recorded by remote computers. Holy Molly! What church does this? It's scary, they should be closely monitored. Good job Tony!

So, it's almost a guarantee these "SP" gadgets will be used for nefarious reasons, disguised as beneficial to their spritual belief and to save all of mankind..

According to some books (like I think Headley's) it is not just phones that are tapped. All those nice auditing rooms are apparently going to be set up with A/V so that people outside the room can observe and listen and record ... 

Now doesn't that just make you want to pour out your heart to the auditor?

spooky because I just looked up some OMFG facts about one of the lighting companies used, Illuminating Concepts, in Farmington (Hills?), Michigan.  I remembered there is or was a scientology org there.  Owner/inventor is Ron Harwood, but don't see him listed as a scientologist.

I can understand why sci used this guy!  He invented (soon to be planted on a street near you!)  Intellistreets.  It's a friggin' wireless streetlight.  The poles can digitally communicate with each other.  The lights will play music for you, oh,  and they will also be spying on you with built in cameras. and there's more!   Jeezuz

From his website:  "Illuminating Concepts is recognized industry-wide for the creation of ‘Immersion Experiences,’ environments that saturate visitors with enticing elements."

There's an article about his streetlights  to get an idea of what this is all about: 

 "Orwellian Intellistreets: Wireless street light network on American Streets" by Julie Banovic.

I've just re-read Marc Headley's chapter on SuperPowerz in his book - I highly recommend it.

According to Marc they have been trying to work out how to deliver Superpower for many years now. For some of the perceptics Hubbard was pretty vague, so they spent a long time trying to work out what he meant.

The first people to do the Smell Perceptic trials were just given fruit and a blindfold - now it's all using the latest technology to generate the smells - but basically people can save themselves a ton of money if they stay at home and just go round the local supermarket.

I personally think all these high tech gadgets have been built, it's just that they are sitting in a warehouse somewhere, just like all those "ultramodern" e-meters Miscavage had made in Japan in the 1990s, but they can't use because they have SCSI ports instead of USBs.

There's probably tons of crap that Co$ bought but can't use for some stupid reason, and they are all sitting in warehouses.
