Tony Ortega har en interessant artikkel på bloggen sin om muligheten for nye OT-nivåer.
Etter man har oppnådd den spirituelle tilstanden “clear”, hvor man er kvitt alle “engrammer”, spesielle typer mentale inntrykksbilder som kan gi en traumer og negative følelser, kan man ta fatt på de såkalte OT-nivåene (av “Operating Thetan”). Foreløpig eksisterer åtte slike nivåer, men det skal ha blitt hintet til flere nivåer i lang tid.
Is David Miscavige really planning to extend Scientology’s ‘Bridge’?
We don’t always see the newest issue of the Freewinds, a Scientology publication that gets passed around a little less often than Impact or Celebrity or International Scientology News.
But a new edition made its way to us, and it contained a story we thought you’d want to hear about. We’d been hearing some things about New Jersey dentist Louis Feldman. He’s an OT 8, the highest level of spiritual achievement that a Scientologist can attain. And he penned an article in Freewinds about how he’s gone back down to the bottom end of the Bridge to do low-level courses like the Student Hat, a basic introduction to learning.
Why? Well, Louis says he’s getting ready for the next great Scientology advance, the release of levels OT 9 and OT 10. He’s also reportedly been telling people that he’s been given the role as ambassador specifically to prepare people for the release of the new levels. We wanted to ask him about that, but the number at his dentist’s office asked us to enter a code to access a voice mail system. Odd.
We’ve been hearing for years about OT 9 and 10. The story Scientology leader David Miscavige wants followers to believe is that L. Ron Hubbard had planned to reveal new material up to OT 15 at some point, but that the world simply wasn’t ready for anything above OT 8 until certain prerequisites were met. It’s one of the many things that Scientologists continually hear in order to convince them to keep giving money and keep doing prerequisites — some day, OT 9 and 10 will be released, but only when they’ve done enough to deserve it.
