Below is a list of selected
made by David Miscavige during the introductory portion of the 2007
Basics release event (full name: "Golden Age of Knowledge: The Basic").
The time marks are for the DVD version
of this event. About 3 minutes and 10 seconds (3:10) should be
subtracted from these marks to get the ones for the Internet version
of this video which is available on the official Church of
[04:25] If the reality hasn’t sunk in
yet, it soon will – this is THE EVENT you’ve been waiting for.
[04:39] With what you are about to see
this evening there really is no need for superlatives or hyberbole so
let me just set the agenda with the most FACTUAL statements I could
make, statements containing NO EMBELLISHMENT.
[05:23] For what we release tonight is
not something effecting only the lower end of the Bridge or merely
the upper end but the very pillar upon which literary rests the
entire Bridge itself.
[05:47] For tonight’s release won't
just make it possible to be a Scientologist like you've never
dreamed, it will provide an entirely new definition of what it means
to be a Scientologist and with an ease that defies definition.
[06:21] If we’ve already said it's
the greatest recovery of lost tech in Dianetics and Scientology then
let's rephrase it – the recovery of Dianetics and Scientology,
[7:18] Ok, of course with a list of
statements like that I just made, it had better be big. [audience
laughter] Needless to say, it is! Indeed, and as I said,
embellishment, no hype, and none of it intended just to create an
[20:57 – 22:15] The fact remains that
the data contained in the basic books are very foundation upon which
all Dianetics and Scientology rests. So if we are going to speak of a
Golden Age of Knowledge, indeed, if your route to the top requires
TOTAL KNOWLEDGE, then the data needs to be part of your vocabulary.
After all, we aren’t just speaking of the reactive mind and its
anatomy, we are also speaking of the very axioms of Dianetics and
Scientology, and they are called AXIOMS for a reason.
But what if I told you that you could
know these materials so well that they literary are part of your very
fabric. And what if I said you not only could know the discoveries,
but even how they came about: how LRH discovered the whole track, the
energy of life itself, the illusory nature of the MEST universe –
all of it. In fact, what if I told you that you not only could fully
understand the axioms, but you’d know them so well, you’d even
know why they ARE the axioms, without even thinking about it. Or
let’s go one step further – the Factors. What if I told you that
studied correctly you’d be inviting the toughest Flag supervisor to
give you a check out AFTER ONE TIME THROUGH! Well, I am saying that,
and a whole lot more.
[24:11] As regards KSW, I’ve
previously said the Golden Age of Knowledge is the most embracive RTC
program EVER! Yes, even more than Golden Age of Tech, Golden Age of
Tech for OT’s, arbitraries removed, Ideal Orgs – you name it. The
reason is obvious - without the tech, pure tech, nothing else is
possible and nothing else matters. But if you think anybody knew what
it entailed when it came to the books… No! Nobody had a clue.
[26:23 - 29:40] Because
where it's headed is not just the full recovery
of the books but so much more including literally discovering lost
and I do mean hidden from view, that surrounds these books.
So once again, the question: how does one lose tech? MISUNDERSTOODS.
And whose were they? THE TRANSCRIPTIONIST’s. Yes, you heard me: the
transcriptionist’s. And here is what I mean. With a lecture, you hear
LRH and the words he said. In a policy letter, you read them as he
hand-wrote or typed them. Yet the books, with only one exception, were
dictated. Meaning, he spoke them into a tape recorder and they were
typed by a transcriptionist. You get LRH’s words as he or she relayed
them, and when that person had a misunderstood, you get this:
distortions, alterations and perversions, some little, some huge, but
every one of them – a hang up for the reader, and that’s why I said you
can look up every single word in one of these book and still not get it
because when you track it out across the entire LRH library, you get
such alterations as entirely missing chapters; total garbles; parts of
the text specifically said to be deleted by LRH but left in anyway
causing complete mystery; transcription errors whereby LRH dictates a
sentence and then replaces it with another, but the transcriptionist
was too lazy to go back and correct it leaving both sentences in the
book. And if that’s not enough, take your “garden variety”
transcription error where the typist isn’t sure whether they should
punctuate with a period, colon, or a comma and in almost every instance
deciding to go with a happy medium and using a semicolon – a total
“maybe” and resulting in sentences, indeed paragraphs, where you don’t
know where the sentence begins or ends. Now let’s add an editor, who
instead of now correcting it decides to add his own clarifying
footnotes to explain what LRH really meant or, through sloppiness,
misplacing pages and lord knows what else – mixes up the chapters so
some are not only in the wrong sequence, but entire chapters appear in
the middle of another chapter, and that’s just the beginning of the
list which explains why you’ll even if sometimes found LRH saying: “see
later text” and yet the text never appears, or he refers to a process
with a statement: “as described earlier” yet which never really did
appear earlier, and if you don’t remember any of these examples from
the books, that only makes my point – YOU WENT TOTALLY BLANK!
[audience standing up, clapping and cheering]
And if that’s a sampling, I assure you it’s not even a half of it, then
again you can be just as certain that I wouldn’t be standing here
telling you this unless each and every alteration, and I do mean every
distortion, perversion, and alteration has now been corrected.
[audience standing up, clapping and cheering]
[after digital animations and rolling
out a massive display of new materials onto the stage]
[37:27 – 38:38] So there you have the
Basics – Dianetics to Scientology - and the very foundation of the
subjects complete. Just in case you missed it, we are not speaking of
“corrected” manuscripts, not “newly verified” manuscripts,
and DEFINITELY not just “repackaged.” What we are speaking of is
a 100% unadulterated source. Furthermore, we are not merely speaking
of books, but when you add the lectures that have never been
available, the 100% recovery of source on every technological advance
from discovery of engrams and the reactive mind to operating thetan
to the breakthroughs in principles applied in every auditing session
today at every level of the Bridge.
Indeed, combine it all and it lays out
like this: I can walk off this stage in the next 30 seconds after
simply telling you to read and listen in sequence, and I would KNOW
that you would fly. In fact, I'd know if you did just that – read
and listened in sequence – by the end of your study you'd know the
basics of Dianetics and Scientology better than any Dianeticist or
Scientologist from 1950 right up to the present time.
