1. Executive Director, the chief officer of a Scientology
organization. 2. Executive Directive, an issue type; EDs may be
written by Executive Directors at the local level. L. Ron Hubbard
EDs were written by L. Ron Hubbard himself.
Executive Director International, the head of the Exec
Strata, currently Guillaume Lesevre. This is not the head of the
cult, despite the title; the head honcho is David Miscavige. The ED
INT can be written to at: Executive Director International, 4833
Fountain Avenue Los Angeles, California, 90027. There are also
message boxes for the ED INT in each org. He replies, too, or
someone does in his name. This is the SO-1 line (qv) now that
Hubbard is dead.
or Meter, electrometer or electropsychometer. A crude
battery -powered analog ohmmeter used to locate Overts (undisclosed
acts), Body Thetans (evil spirits), and Engrams (moments of pain
and unconsciousness). The PC or patient holds the soup-cans
electrodes, while the Auditor or Scientology therapist watches the
needle on the dial. Circuitry is based on the Wheatstone Bridge.
The meter was designed by Volney Mathieson. Current "top of the
line" models sell for about $4,000 US in a plastic case. Actual
parts list is about $50-$100, making it a good money earner for
Scientology, particularly since every auditor is required to own
two in case one breaks down.
words that act like mental locks to keep the reactive
mind, the chain of memory incidents of a harmful nature, keyed-in
or in an active state.
a posited memory trace that remains after a moment of pain
and unconsciousness. Hubbard didn't coin this word; it can be found
in Webster's, and is part of the ISV, the International Scientific
enturbulated theta. Bad Vibes. "This Usenet newsgroup is
so full of entheta that it is restimulating my bank."
Hubbardese for being upset. "Suzy found ars so
enturbulating, she ran away."
1. End of Cycle, the end of a cycle of action (start, change,
stop.) 2. Suicide. "After your mission to infiltrate the FBI, do an
EOC to prevent leaks."
End Phenomenon. The result of a Scientology processing action.
"The EP for OT 15 is cause over the universe."
Estates Project Force, where new recruits are first placed so
that they may receive indoctrination into the Sea Org echelons of
the cult and prove themselves worthy of being into the Sea Org. Per
policy, all recruits must finish a course called "Product Zero" and
a 7A Security Check.
a section of a Scientology Org (organization) that keeps
people in line, and the Hubbardian policy that deals with it. "Keep
your nose clean, or I'll route you to Ethics, Mr.!"
Eastern US. See CLO.
an implanted evil goal given to us millions or
billions or trillions of years ago in Implant stations (there is
one on Mars, you'll be interested to know) and still influencing
our everyday lives, according to Hubbard.
see Senior Exec Strata.
an ethical method of recovering people from
destructive cults, involving talking and giving out information in
a non-coercive manner. "Combatting Cult Mind Control" by Steve
Hassan best exemplifies the methodology. Compare Deprogramming.
a former member of the Scientology cult who has
left and has gained a greater understanding of what was done to
them in Hubbard's brainwashing machine, and who has a desire to see
the hidden truth behind Scientology's carefully constructed PR
facade exposed to the public. Most Ex-Scientologists do this for
the public interest, despite personal risk of harassment and
groundless defamation lawsuits from Scientology's Office of Special
Affairs department and its small army of lawyers, agents, and PIs.
We have little or nothing to gain by going public with what we know
about the cult from the inside, and some of us will pay dearly for
our devotion to the truth. We were lied to and ripped off by L. Ron
Hubbard, in both a spiritual and monetary sense, and we don't want
to see anyone else manipulated the way we were. Scientology has in
many ways destroyed our lives; we would be less than human to stand
idly by and watch as more "raw meat" public are ripped to shreds in
Scientology's money-making mill.
to leave the body. Scientologists believe we can step
outside our bodies in the form of a disembodied "Thetan" or spirit,
and hover about looking at things. This is deemed to be a very
important goal of every Scientologist, usually only obtained at the
highest "OT level." OT VIIs and VIIIs who have left the cult claim
it is an induced hallucination. "Exteriorization is the goal of the
End of Endless Int Rundown." See "Interiorization."
