A Hubbard Family Occult Mystery
Ron Hubbard and Scientology. He has a new edition of the book for sale, and on Saturdays he helping us does itouch 6 fit an coque iphone 6 coque7iphone21375 sift through the legends, myths, and contested facts about Scientology that tend to get hashed and rehashed in books, articles, and especially on the Internet.
Jon, for a few weeks now we been bugging you about L. Ron Hubbard interest in Sex Magick and Aleister Crowley (1875 1947), which predated his work on Dianetics and anstop coque iphone 6 review coqueiphone133833 Scientology. But we have a reason for bringing it up, and we thought you might ease us into the subject again.
JON: When I first went to Saint Hill in the mid 70s, I was befriended by a Crowleyite named Carlos. He told me that Hubbard had set up Scientology as a beacon for the of whom, he assured me, I was one. The vast majority of recruits would simply be drones, who would do our bidding at some future date. I believe Carlos went back to heroin addiction, in preference to the state of OT. We only met twice, but it made me watchful. I had no interest in magic (or heroin, for that matter, contrary to OSA rumors).
When I left, I met Steve Bisbey, who ran the Advanced Ability Centre, East Grinstead, and Ralph Hilton, who set up his own independent auditing practice. Both had come coque iphone 4 militaire to Scientology from Crowley, as many did, after the Sunday Times exposed Hubbard involvement with Sex Magick. I liked Steve, but he had never abandoned his fondness for Crowley, and, indeed, the last time we met, he told arsenal we are the gunners o1234 coque samsung samsung galaxy a5 coque offcielle galaxy s8 1coques8samsung3348 me that he still Crowley work. Steve was a standard techie. Ralph Hilton mixed Crowleyite ideas into snoopy boarding pass l2999 coque samsung galaxy s8 1coques8samsung1686 his practice. He did not necessarily inform his preclears of this.
I very soon found myself poring over Crowley texts to try and understand Hubbard. I was surprised to find that Hubbard had taken more ideas from Crowley and the Ordo Templi Orientis (OTO) than from any other place including the trauma of birth, the use of lives rather than and the processing which is the revelation of the Philadelphia Doctorate Course and allowed Hubbard to do something after he given Dianetics away.
Along the way, I spoke with John Symonds, who was Crowley literary executor and wrote The Great Beast about Crowley. He loathed Crowley and helped me to steer through the OTO material, real gold coque iphone 6 coque7iphone16997 until I realised that the Babalon Working rituals Hubbard performed after the war with Pasadena rocket scientist Jack Parsons fortnite battle s0556 coque samsung galaxy s8 1coques8samsung22 had continued to become Scientology Scientology is a magical where Hubbard elevated himself by enslaving others. I think I was the first person to show that Parsons and Hubbard had actually done the eighth ritual of the OTO (OTO VIII). That the ritual is evidently gay (in both the accepted and the South Park sense, really) also seems to be avoided, but, given Hubbard horror of homosexuality, this is an important point. We just quote a brief description of them that Lawrence Wright supplied in Going Clear: ceremony, likely aided by narcotics and hallucinogens, required Hubbard to channel the female deity of Babalon coque iphone 6 fraise as Parsons performed the of wand with material basis on talisman kawaii on the streets senpai in the sheets coque coque iphone 6 gel silicone samsung s10 antens102029315 in other words, masturbating on a piece of coque iphone 6 otterbox defender grey and pink coqueiphone140186 parchment. He typically invoked twice a night. In Blue Sky, you write that another part of the ritual probably made use of a mix of semen and menstrual blood.
Previously, juice coque samsung s10 antens102028634 Jon, we had asked you about something called The Blood Ritual that was also in Hubbard papers. You said the ritual described in those papers invoked the name of a goddess that some of in flames siren charms z1279 iphone 11 pro max coque goldufoa9012 our readers insisted was a benign vegetable god or something.
JON: It also in Blue Sky. Omar Garrison came to see me in the early 90s, because he believed the cult was harassing him again, and he wanted them to know that if they continued, he would give material to me. He had come several thousand miles to make this point. In return, he showed me The Blood Ritual, which is an invocation of Hathor (some spell it Hathoor), the Egyptian goddess represented as a spotted cow or, more usually as a woman with a cow head (whatever turns you on. One obscure OTO text has a young man communing with the Hathor by having sexual intercourse with a cow).
Hathor is conflated with Sekhmet. The best description I can find comes from Murry Hope, in Practical Egyptian Magic, where she monogram decal for rose gold coque iphone 6 coque7iphone20656 says: (Athyr), who is associated with Aphrodite, was the daughter of Ra and carrier of his divine eye. Perhaps the ancients were trying to tell us that energy can either heal and nourish, when used constructively, or break and destroy if used destructively is somewhat enigmatic at the best of times.
In the simplest terms, Hathor represents nature. In Roman mythology, she is Diana (and thusly, Dianetics), who is best known for her casual unconcern for humanity, when she turned Acteon into a stag, so that she and her chums could hunt him down (her loving nature is represented by Venus, in the Roman system). It really doesn matter what any commentator believes Hathor is, was, or might be, just what Hubbard believed. It rather like the argument used by most historians that we star wars darth vader fun z3333 iphone xs max coque goldufoa15344 should ignore the Nazi obsession with magic, because magic is nonsense. But Churchill kept an astrologer, to find out what Hitler astrologer was telling him. I don believe in magic, Egyptian or joker movie 2019 z4601 iphone 7 iphone 8 coque goldufoa9678 otherwise, but Hubbard did. He invoked Hathor as Diana, as as his which is the Empress of the tarot, and Hubbard guardian angel (for which, see Blue Sky guardian angel is a Crowleyite term).
When I life death coque samsung s10 antens102022959 first met Gerry, he told me about a scale he found in Hubbard papers, which belonged to the period between Parsons and Dianetics around 1947. I asked Gerry about this, recently, but he couldn remember it, so I beyonce coque iphone 6 foraged through vivbin coque iphone 6 coqueiphone139509 my ancient notes, and there it is:The Fool
Fanatics and Zealots
The Wealthy, FinanciersLabourers and FarmersHubbard believed he reached the level of the Fool. There is a fascinating digression about the Fool on the first Philadelphia Doctorate Course tape and the alligator he mentions on the tarot card leads us to Crowley (the only tarot with an alligator on the Fool card). In the lecture, Hubbard informs us that the Fool is the illumined state, because nothing can affect the Fool whatever you fire at him passes straight through. He gives this as an early example of what would become the Operating Thetan, OT.

Hubbard believed that the Empress dictated material to him, through automatic writing (it would explain his odd turn of phrase). He once told a follower that Dianetics: The Modern Science of Mental Health was dictated by Empress. Elsewhere, the Empress is called the Mother Goddess by Crowley. She is also equated with the goddess, Kali, who feeds upon humanity and was worshiped by the Thuggees, who spent hundreds of years murdering innocents as sacrifice to her (until the British dockable coque iphone 6 coqueiphone127158 Raj exterminated them).
THE BUNKER: Hey, look what we found. It the excerpt from the first Philadelphia Doctorate Course lecture that you mentioned, which Hubbard gave on December 1, 1952. This is the portion where he mentions The Fool from the Tarot, as you indicated.
It always fascinating to delve into Hubbard and the occult. But part of our reason for bringing this up again, Jon, is that we wanted to talk about another Hubbard and some pretty odd activities…
