They promise to overcome physical evil by “reactivating the mind”
Of course, you have sometimes heard of Scientology, which is a religion proclaimed by artists such as Tom Cruise and John Travolta, but do you know exactly what it means?
The theory of science is a set of beliefs and doctrines implemented by the philosophy of the American novelist Ron Hubbard (L. Ron Hubbard).
Although he studied engineering at George Washington University, he never graduated and decided to devote himself to creating wonderful stories, horror novels and comics.
After traveling around the world to study various religions, he began to believe that illnesses can be cured with the mind. This idea was captured by him in Danietics in early 1949, in which he can overcome by “reactivating the body” disease”. Mind”.
His theory is so unique that after introducing it to different publishers, no one dared to publish it, so he had to publish a paper in the journal “Amazing Science Fiction”. By 1950, more than 50,000 copies had been sold and translated into French, German and Japanese.
In 1952, he plucked up the courage and decided to establish scientific theology.
Currently, those involved in the case must sign billions of years of contracts to express their “eternal commitment to religion” and promise to reject (if necessary) psychiatry and drugs because “they interfere with the operation of rational thinking” and continue to submit to “audits.” In the process, they were asked personal questions to “find out the root cause of the trauma.” These conversations are recorded, in case a member wants to leave the church, they will use audio to make him change his mind.
Mexican Theory of Science
When trying to find the answer, I went to Macrotemplo on the corner of Balderas and Juárez. This is a huge building with sand-colored walls in the Palacio de Bellas ) And Cavalito (Caballito de Reforma).
On the sidewalk nearby, men and women are often seen wearing impeccable suits, impeccably distributing flyers of personality courses to passers-by, but what does this have to do with L. Ron Hubbard? Believe it or not.
When a short figure wanted to enter this place, he kindly prohibited me from entering, explaining that there were only two ways to enter: become a member or take a free personality test-and emphasized the word. In the absence of other options, I agree to accept the questionnaire.
This temple is a strange fusion between luxury hotel, bookstore and conference center. By stepping inside, the chaos outside disappeared. The peaceful environment is appreciated.
The man didn’t let go of his brilliant smile, so he led me to a semi-private room and gave me a pencil, an eraser, and of course a test.
According to him, the actual cost of the “Oxford Ability Analysis” was $500, but I was “lucky to be there at that exact moment” and did it for free.
The exam contains 200 questions, each answering “yes”, “maybe” and “no”.
The questions are different, starting with “Do you laugh a lot?” Is your life a fight for survival? Do you agree to accept the strict treatment of the leader?
After I completed and submitted the questionnaire, they asked me to wait for my results to be scored.
To make the waiting pleasant, a young lady sat in front of the TV with an impeccable smile and told me that she would show me a video about “Danietics”, which would “change the way I look at life”.
The video attempts to eliminate diseases (including cancer) through “reprogramming thinking,” among other things.
After half an hour, I heard they called my name.
Your results are very interesting. You are a very open person and have a lot to say, but without restraint, this may bring endless troubles to your daily life. ”
So far so good. Perhaps some of the results are not far from reality. But when he told me, this serious attitude (he didn’t give the answer until then) broke down.
You have the potential to change the world, but if you don’t change your way of thinking, you will be powerless. Fortunately, we have a perfect path. It is called “Values and Personal Integrity” and it takes place on Saturday and lasts for 15 hours. For only 700 pesos, you can gain knowledge to improve your life. Your timeshare is eternal happiness,” he promised.
At that time, I thought of this ten-year contract and questioned him. His perfect smile changed, and his friendly expression became serious.
These are topics that will be covered when you pass several levels of courses. If you are interested, you can take 18 corresponding courses to get this information.
He stared at me, waiting for me to pick up my wallet and pay for the first course. I told him I would consider it.
He began to question me: What is stopping you from changing your life? I replied that the money was not brought to me, which made me feel unhappy.
He stood up quickly, led me to the bookshelf, and picked up a very heavy book called “The Sacred Handbook of Science”, apparently written by L. Ron Hubbard, and promised If I read this book, he can save me several course levels.
Show him my empty bag-no wallet-and he went on to explain the benefits of dialogue, happiness and social well-being.
The tour did not go beyond the first floor, and the answer to my doubts was vague. Are they really helping people? Or is it just business? To be honest, I don’t know if I have more questions than I typed in the answers 2 hours ago. It is obvious that every day thousands of Mexicans-according to the Scientology Mexico Historical Center, 5,000 to be precise-live a life obsessed with organizational rules, including the so-called “out of touch”, which forces him to be faithful Yu is separated from relatives who do not practice faith.
It’s a lot like trying to deal with criminals. If he is unwilling to deal with this situation, then society will resort to the only solution left: “disconnect the criminal from the society.” In other words, it expels the individual from society and puts him in jail because he is unwilling to deal with his own problems, otherwise he is unwilling to stop committing crimes against others. “-L. Ron Hubbard’s definition.
Unlike our reporters, many stakeholders who participated in the personality test ended up taking courses and buying books to “become better people.”
Like other best-selling books, L. Ron Hubbard’s books have aroused great interest among people and become the axis of people’s lives in a short period of time.
Hubbard is a man, he thinks the easiest way to make money is to establish religion, and then… he succeeded.
