“Gnostics held secret formulas, which they believed would free them at death from the evil archons and restore them to their heavenly abode. The Gnostics practiced extreme asceticism. Asceticism is rejection of the world and bodily pleasures through sustained self-denial, to strengthen spiritual life. The practice was to control one’s physical desires and passions.”
The book Scientology Roots can be viewed as an Encyclopedia of Historic Events showing what Scientology really is and it’s relationship within the larger Game Plan of what we call The Slavemasters. (or “Enslavers”) The carrier subjects of Dianetics and Scientology are propagating the mental, religious, and political ideas of what some have termed The New World Order.
Here is Chapter Seven (out of 56 so far). Complete chapter listing (with links) is available at a special page for Series and Books.
In India, Mitra was a Hindu solar diety. Worship of him spread into Persia as Mithra.
Zoroastrianism was the Persian religion. Mithra was their God of Light and Wisdom, closely associated with the Sun. Mithra was also a deity of the Nesilim in Asia Minor.
Worship of Mithra appeared in Egypt under the name of Aten. Aten was the sun god.
In 1345 BC, Akhenaten did something unique, he said that the Aten was the only god. All other gods were abolished. That didn’t last long, Egypt soon reverted back to worship of their traditional gods.
Correct knowledge about existence was freely handed out in the area just north of India. The beginning slavemaster moves took place in the same area. As the knowledge became interferred with by the slavemasters, different factions formed up. Some of these factions retained the correct knowledge, other factions retained only some of the knowledge and mixed it with incorrect knowledge, other factions had nothing but incorrect knowledge. One of the groups that evolved out of this scenario was a priest-warrior tribe called Saka.
About 550 BC is the alleged time period for Gautama Siddhartha, born in Nepal within a priest –warrior tribe called the Saka or Sakyas or Ksatriyas. Nepal is just north of India.
The Sakas also get known as the Sakyamuni. Sakyamuni translates roughly to intelligent fierce warrior, or sage of the Saka tribe.
Buddhism is based on the teachings of Gautama who became known as Buddha, meaning “the awakened” or “Enlightened One”. At the age of 30 he abandoned a life of opulence and focused many years of his life on self-denial and contemplation. One day, while sitting under a tree, he gained enlightenment.
Buddhism is a slavemaster attack on Beings. Buddhism says desire causes all suffering. That is not true, but Buddhists try to refrain themselves from living, interest, and passion.
For the remainder of his life Gautama taught his beliefs to his disciples along with the goal of reaching Nirvana, the state of having no desires, which releases you from the wheel of re-births, thus you would no longer have a body.
Strong feeling, intense interest, intense love, are expressed by the word passion. Beings can be passionate about things and that shows strength, it is not a bad thing. One of the things the slavemasters fear most are those Beings who are intensely loyal to each other. Beings not really participating in living, who refrain from experiencing strong feelings – make the slavemaster feel more comfortable because he thinks they are less of a threat.
They dread the thought that some Beings may decide to go after them, with a passion.
Mithraism held similar ideas, fasting and continence were strongly prescribed.
Mithra became the principal deity of the Persian religion, Zoroastrianism, in 550 BC.
The Nesilim kingdom of Assyria was just north of Mesopotamia. Their god was Ashur.
Persian emperor Darius ruled from 522 BC to 486 BC.
Zoroastrianism was a monotheistic religion, and it spread throughout the Persian empire.
Monotheism is the idea that there is only one god. However, in each region, various “gods” were still worshipped and served by the people. Monotheism did not meet with immediate overnight success. The idea of multiple gods was still clinged to by most people. Mithra was one of them, and he was still being worshipped in various regions.
The Greeks elected Alexander the Great to command their army against Persia. His army defeated the main Persian army in 333 BC. He then conquered the entire Persian Empire. Thus a further fusion of religious ideas came about, the Greeks believed in multiple gods.
By 168 BC the Romans were establishing the Roman Empire. They conquered and ruled Europe, Greece, Asia Minor, Mesopotamia, Canaan and Egypt. The Nesilim spread into Europe and were the foundation of German tribes that fought the Romans. The Romans called them Germani, meaning “war men”.
Mithraism was present in Palestine (aka Canaan), and Palestine was under Roman rule.
Mithraism was then picked up by the Roman legions and they carried it back to Rome where it became one of the great religions of the Roman Empire, and in the 2nd century A.D. it was more general than Christianity. It then spread into Europe and became a world-wide religion called Mithraism.
Religious practice took place at a mithraeum, a natural cave or a building imitating one.
The members of a mithraeum were divided into seven ranks.
The fundamental aspect of the Mithraic system was the dualistic struggle between the forces of Good and Evil. Mithra and his devotees were battling the Powers of Darkness.
Mithraism ideas were used to create many Jewish sects. These sects say that god is light and the members are called Soldiers of Light or Children of Light or Brothers of Light.
The Essenes were spiritual healers, healing souls who were under the mastery of fears, griefs, pleasures, passions and other vices. They were in Egypt and about 150 BC a community of Essenes began living near the Dead Sea, where Jerusalem is located.
There were two branches of Essenes – the Ossaeans and the Nazorean.
The sun was held in reverence by the Essenes. At sunrise they addressed a prayer to the sun. Amen/Ra was the Egyptian sun god. The Nazorean Essenes were known as the B’nai-Amen – Children of the Sun God. (Children of Light)
The Essenes called themselves Sons of Light; and their enemies Sons of Darkness. They saw the Final War of Men as The War of the Sons of Light against the Sons of Darkness.
The beliefs and practices of the Essenes included parts of Judaism and Buddhism. They meditated. They practiced the Jewish custom of resting on the 7th day. They rejected some Jewish customs – they refused to sacrifice meat to the Jewish temple in Jerusalem.
The Buddhists believed that desire was the cause of all suffering, and purification of self would lead to breaking the endless cycle of birth-death-rebirth. So, the Essenes sought to deny the senses to find a pure spirituality. They gave up their property and lived a life of rigid asceticism. They refused to drink alcohol or eat meat. Most Essenes did not marry. They regarded pleasure as evil and used self control.
They believed the immortal soul was locked in a corruptible body. The body was a prison for the soul which rejoiced when freed of it.
The Essenes considered themselves to be a separate people – because of their knowledge of the hidden mysteries unknown to other men. They felt they were on a mission and they were supported in this effort by highly evolved Beings who directed the Brotherhood.
The Essenes differentiated between souls that were sleeping and the awakened souls. Their task was to relieve the sleeping souls, to try to awaken the drowsy souls, and to guide the awakened souls.
When a candidate asked to be admitted to their School, a process of awakening the soul was set in motion. Only the souls considered as awakened could be initiated into the mysteries of the Brotherhood. Then a path of evolution began for them that would not stop through the cycle of their incarnations.
When an individual asked to be admitted – the candidate had to practice meditation. In this way, he could prepare himself to enter the Community of Light.
After his initiation the newcomer received a mission to be accomplished during his life. This mission had to be a way of uniting himself with God and being useful to humanity.
A man was to carry inside himself a beautiful light – to be offered to earth inhabitants.
The Teaching of Light occurred in groups. The Brotherhood was strict about secrecy. They took an oath to honour God, observe justice, to love truth and honesty, to conceal nothing from their fellows, and to keep secret their books and the names of their angels.
The Essene Masters knew how quickly one can stray from the path of Light and get lost. He had to clarify his life, in order to keep alive and pure his bond with the Most-High, with the sun of his soul.
The School condemned slavery. It taught love for God, virtue, and mankind.
Joseph and Mary were Nazorean Essenes and Mary gave birth to Yeshua about 4 BC. Yeshua the Nazorean is Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ is Greek for – Yeshua the Messiah.
Some Jews regarded him as the Jewish Messiah. Other Jews reject that and state that Jesus was not God, nor was he the Son of God, and he was not the Messiah – and any Jew who claims Jesus is their savior is no longer a Jew.
Yeshua practiced healing and had a following. The Romans executed him in 33 AD.
His followers were not all of the same opinion. Some regarded the Jewish god Yahweh as an inferior, short tempered, vicious deity who performed genocides, and other evil acts. Different schools of belief and practice were formed up after the departure of Yeshua.
Peter and Paul went to Rome and began the movement that became Catholic Christianity.
The Catholics made many changes to the original teachings of the Essenes and Yeshua.
More Jewish fiction writing took place to create the new Jewish faction – Christianity.
The so-called holy scriptures were authored centuries after the events they pretend to portray.
Christian beliefs include a future Second Coming of Jesus:
Jesus Christ will return and battle the Anti-Christ.
There will be a resurrection of the dead.
Judgment Day – where all will be judged and either sent to Heaven or Hell.
The Kingdom of God is established on Earth where only Yahweh is worshipped.
A Messianic Age will begin, giving peace on Earth for a thousand years.
2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9
The account of the life of Yeshua as portrayed in Christian Bibles are not actual history. It is invented history, as a result of proven forgeries, book burning, and fiction writing.
Another Brothers of Light group popular around the time of Yeshua was the Gnostics. The Gnostics had various sects with each sect holding some slightly different beliefs. Some sects believed in Jesus Christ, while others were non-Christian. Fifty-two ancient scrolls were found at Nag Hammadi, Egypt. The scrolls gave insight into Gnostic beliefs. The Gnostics thought there are two Gods, the one the author of good, and the other of evil; and between these two there was unceasing warfare, as between light and darkness, spirit and matter. The Gnostics held that matter was essentially evil, and consequently the Supreme God could not be its author. The other lesser God was the Creator of the World and he was looked upon as the God of the Jews, and that God was the author of evil. 10
Spirits/souls are divided into two classes, Children of Light and Children of Darkness.
The ancient Persians believed the Supreme Being was surrounded with angels, or what they called Aeons or Emanations, from the divine substance. This opinion was also held by some Gnostic sects. 11
The Gnostics believed that a spark of divinity is entrapped in an alien and evil world, and imprisoned in the soul of man. According to the Gnostics, the individual’s knowledge (Gnosis) of the spark within himself results in its being liberated from this world, and the Gnostic adherent abandons both body and self to join the infinite pleroma (the divine realm; heaven).
Gnosis meant knowledge, but it was a particular knowledge – that you are a spark of divinity, and this knowledge was obtained only by a personal experience of revelation.
The attainment of such knowledge was the supreme achievement of human life.
All faultiness and suffering arose from ignorance of god, through knowledge of God (gnosis) will be removed all the bad conditions; and therefore knowledge of god (gnosis) is the perfecting of the inner man.
It was Valentinus, the prominent Gnostic leader, who led the assault upon the text of the Old Testament in the second century AD, claiming that certain parts of the Pentateuch and the Prophets were not authentic. (The Pentateuch is the first five books of the Jewish and Christian Bibles, the first five books are called the Torah by the Jews.)
Valentinus wrote a letter wherein he states – “the soul of man is like an inn, which is inhabited by many evil spirits. But when the Father, who alone is good, looks down and around him, then the soul is hallowed and lies in full light, and so he who has such a heart as this is to be called happy, for he shall behold God.” 12
Gnostics were barbarically massacred and their books destroyed. The Catholic Church did not want the teachings of the Gnostics to be studied. Among the Gnostic books were the Gospel of Thomas, Gospel of Philip, and Gospel of Truth.
Gnostics recognized the feminine; there is a supreme father-god and mother-goddess. The Gnostics were children of the supreme Mother-goddess, from her the divine spark descended to this lower world. The children of heaven still exist in this gross material world, subjected to evil spirits, and they must find their way back to the highest heaven.
The Gnostics said the most beloved disciple of Jesus was a woman, Mary Magdalene, and she was his consort. The Gospel of Philip says:
“…the companion of the Savior is Mary Magdalene. But Christ loved her more than all the disciples, and used to kiss her often on her mouth.” 12
The Gnostics saw the universe as a duality between spirit and matter. They conceived of a supreme divine being who was immaterial and eternal. In the Gnostic view man’s spirit is a fragment of this universal Being which has split off and become imprisoned in matter.
The world of matter was not created by the supreme God but by a lower god (demiurge) who commands a number of minions, called archons (rulers), who have different spheres of influence in the material world.
Man is composed of a body and soul, which belong to the material world, and a divine spark, or pneuma, which is the godly element within him. As long as man is kept in ignorance by the demiurge of his true position he will continue to be a prisoner.
Knowledge, or gnosis, is a personal experience of revelation. You become aware that you are a divine spark and that knowledge frees the spirit from its bondage.
The Gnostic belief in a graduation from coarse matter to pure spirit (alchemy) was reflected in the way their communities were organized. These were divided into three main groups. At the lowest level were those entirely preoccupied with material things, and as long as they remained in this state there was no possible redemption for them.
Next came those who were not capable of direct perception of the godly, but who believed in a higher reality and were therefore capable of partial redemption.
At the highest level came those who were possessed by the spirit of God, or pneumal, and were known as ‘pneumatics’. They acted as prophets and were capable of full redemption.
Gnostics held secret formulas, which they believed would free them at death from the evil archons and restore them to their heavenly abode. The Gnostics practiced extreme asceticism. Asceticism is rejection of the world and bodily pleasures through sustained self-denial, to strengthen spiritual life. The practice was to control one’s physical desires and passions.13 (Mithraism and Buddhism have similar ideas.)
A similar Gnostic sect was the Albigenses of France who advocated sexual continence. They were savagely wiped out in the thirteenth century in a crusade inspired by Pope Innocent III. After this Gnosticism went underground. It resurfaced as Hermeticism, which became a large part of the fundamental beliefs of Rosicrucians and Freemasons. Mithraism ideas also led to Kabala doctrine and that is the other fundamental part of Rosicrucian and Freemason ideas. Jewish Kabala practitioners also say god is light.
Gnostic beliefs were the forerunner of Platonism, Hermeticism, and Rosicrucians. The Corpus Hermeticum was a series of manuscripts expressing Gnostic opinion about God.
The symbol of a divine spark encased in earthly matter is an ancient Gnostic symbol, which is also shown in the Rosicrucian symbol, the rose on a cross. The Rosicrucian rose + cross symbolizes the decent of Spirit into matter.The cross is the body and the rose represents the spirit – the “divine spark”. The flowering of the rose means elevating the soul/spirit above the level of body concerns and its uniting with god.
Gnosticism and Scientology
Scientology is a masked Brothers of Light group, a fact that will become obvious to you as you read further in this book. At this point in the book, we are only going to briefly present the relationship between Brothers of Light ideas and Scientology. Later in the book, we will examine in detail that relationship and state what is wrong with the ideas.
The Brothers of Light idea that you are a “spark of divinity”, is promoted by Hubbard.
Science of Survival -
“The biologist… has sought to dream for man an origin out of mud and ammonia seas and a source for him independent of God…
…Dianetics…may be of assistance to a resurgence in man of something of his belief in a Divine Being and in himself as an entity partially divine. “
The Gnostic view that man’s spirit is a fragment of this universal Being which has split off and become imprisoned in matter – is found on the highest level of Scientology. That is called OT 8 and on that level you are guided to the idea that you are just a piece of god.
The Brothers of Light idea that non-recognition of god is evil, is promoted by Hubbard.
Science of Survival -
“One might postulate two more realities. The first is that of the Supreme Being. No culture in the history of the world, save the thoroughly depraved and expiring ones, has failed to affirm the existence of a Supreme Being. It is an emperical observation that men without a strong and lasting faith in a Supreme Being are less capable, less ethical, and less valuable to themselves and society.
A man without an abiding faith is, by observation alone, more of a thing than a man.
…there is no great argument about the reality of a Supreme Being, since one sees, in the failure to countenance that reality, a slimy and loathsome trail, downward into the most vicious depths. Those who succumb to the Forces of Evil and are unable to live more than evil and destructive lives…
The progress upward toward survival on higher levels is a progress as well toward God.
The auditor will notice this in case after case. He will probably be struck by the fact that these atheists he processes soon cease to be atheistic… The forces of Evil reduced life down into materialism and death. “
The Brothers of Light idea that many evil spirits attach themselves to a human body, is promoted by Ron Hubbard and Scientology.
The upper levels of the Scientology Bridge to Light are called Operating Thetan levels. Those are completely dedicated to getting the “inferior evil demons” to leave the body.
The OT levels are secret, but there really is no big secret, Ron Hubbard talks about it in the Research and Discovery Series, especially in volume 10. Anybody can read about it, they are not confidential issues, such as Anatomy of the Theta Body 16 April 1952.
Anatomy of the Theta Body, an LRH lecture 16 April 1952 -
“We’re looking at theta bodies in their essence. I want to drive this home very thoroughly, is there’s nothing strange about a theta body. You walk with them, you talk with them, you are them. Because a human being… is a composite of these bodies.
…are there such things as demons, idle spirits, devils, any one of those things, or are they just psychotics, or what? The psychotic theta body is what we call demons…
… let’s call them entities. They are actually – have been gathered up in groups.
And it actually can get down to a point where the composite you… can actually be influenced by thousands and thousands and thousands and thousands of theta lines which you have picked up…”
On the Scientology OT levels these “theta bodies” or “entities” or “evil demons” are called body thetans. On the OT levels you get the body thetans to leave, then you go on OT 8 and you have revelation – you should believe in God, and unite with god.
Thus the Scientology Bridge to Light is about the Brothers of Light idea that there are numerous “inferior evil demons” that attach themselves to any given human body and they are holding the “superior good spirits” down in an evil material world. What makes those demons evil is they do not recognize and obey god and the word of god. Salvation is to recognize you are a creation of god, and to unite with god. That makes you “good”.
The Brothers of Light idea that the highest state is complete rejection of the physical universe, is promoted by Ron Hubbard and Scientology.
Advance! magazine Issue 19, June 1973 has an article by L. Ron Hubbard. The article is entitled OT and Clear Defined.
“…there are degrees of condition of a thetan. At the top of the scale… he would be in a state where he was so serene, calm, disassociated with the physical universe, that he wouldn’t even be in it… He would have nothing to do with anything. That would be the theoretical top of the scale. “
Later in time, the Brothers of Light will change their idea. They will say it is ok to live in the physical universe, we just need to rid ourselves of those inferior evil demons, then the superior good people (who believe in god) can unite with god and then they will be able to have a utopian world to live in. That is exactly what the Scientology Bridge is about.
Later in the book we will completely tear apart these false ideas. It is sufficient for now, to see that Scientology really is promoting and practicing these Brothers of Light ideas.
Kabala Brothers of Light
In 70 AD the Romans destroyed the Jewish temple in Jerusalem. Some Jews fled to Iberia, which is basically Spain and Portugal. The Jewish name for the area was Sepharad. These are known as Sephardic Jews. Some became wealthy bankers. This led to further spreading of the Jews and Judaism into other parts of the world.
Selection of texts for the Old Testament was decided at a meeting in Palestine in 90 AD.
Roman Emperor Constantine made Christianity (Catholic) the official religion in 324.
In 325 AD the Council of Nicaea was a meeting of Catholic church officials to decide what constituted the Christian faith. The New Testament consists of 27 books, some are the same as the books of the Old Testament, some are different. The first five books of the Old Testament are included as part of the Christian religion.14
The Catholic officials made many changes to the original teachings of Yeshua. One change was to the Gospel of Mark, to hide that Yeshua had married Mary Magdelene. The New Catholic Encyclopedia concedes that most “of the biblical writings underwent considerable re-editing before final publication.” 15
The Catholics met and decided what was to be Catholic beliefs and practices and have acted to enforce their dogma through various means, such as book-burning, witch hunts, hiding manuscripts and even murdering non-believers – all designed to gain acceptance of Catholic spin. Spin is an invented story to deceive. Catholic spin, like all other spin, is not the truth.
All religious scriptures like the Old Testament, New Testament, etc. – are just spin.
All slavemaster mind control techniques operate on this idea – when you control the ideas and thoughts of a person, then you control their reality, their actions, and their inactions.
Spin is a form of propaganda (disinformation) meant to sway public opinion. Spin uses disinformation to bring about a reality in people that will be of benefit to the issuer of the disinformation and his interests. Spin is a tall tale about a person, group, event, etc. It is presented with the intent to deceive people, and manipulate the targeted audience into favorable attitudes, ideas, and actions towards the issuer of the spin and his interests.
Mithraism officially disappeared after Roman Emperor, Theodosius I, issued a decree in 391 AD banning all pagan rites.1 Regardless, some of the ideas of Mithraism continued. The ideas were continued by Jewish Kabala practitioners, later in time.
The first five books of the Old Testament are called the Torah. One story in the Torah says that god handed down laws to Moses. The laws were such things as – Do not kill, Do not steal, Do not have intercourse with another man’s wife, etc.
In addition to written Jewish law, an oral law was handed down. The process of writing down the oral traditions was completed by 500 AD, and this text is called the Talmud.
According to some researchers, the Talmud presents the idea that non-Jews are just animals, they are property, and any acts can be done to them. The moral laws presented in the Torah were to be observed only between Jews. Jews should not steal from each other, not kill each other, not take another man’s wife or possessions, etc. But, they can steal, kill, take another man’s wife, etc. from every person who was not a Jew. Jews can mistreat the non-Jews all they want to and that is not a violation of the Torah moral laws.
Muhammadibn Abd Allah was born in 570 AD in the city of Mecca in Saudi Arabia.
According to the Jewish Bible, Abraham was the forefather of the Jews. Muhammad claimed he was an ancestor of Abraham. In 610, the angel Gabriel began communicating with Muhammad. Three years later Gabriel commanded Muhammad to begin preaching.
Muhammad preached that complete surrender to god is the only way acceptable to God, and that he was a messenger of God, the same way as Abraham, Moses, Jesus, etc.
Muhammad founded Islam. Islam means complete submission to God’s will. An adherent to Islam is called a Muslim. Jews, Christians, and Muslims worship the same Jewish god. However, the Muslims claim that god is named Allah, not Yahweh.
Thus another Jewish faction was born that would fight with the other Jewish factions.
The revelations Muhammad received from God, form the verses of the Qur’an (Koran).
The Qur’an refers to events in Jewish and Christian scriptures, and retells some stories.
The Qur’an states that it is “restoring the pure monotheism of Abraham which had been corrupted in various ways by Jews and Christians”.
In 620, the angel Gabriel took Muhammad to the temple in Jerusalem where Muhammad spoke with Abraham, Moses and Jesus. Muhammad was taken to heaven to meet Allah.
Then Muhammad was returned to Mecca. The Jews ridiculed and rejected Muhammad. Fighting began between the Arabs and the Jews that has continued into modern times.
Muslims are another vicious Jewish faction, they believe its good to kill the “infidels”.
Criticism of Muhammad is blasphemy, which is punishable by death in Pakistan.
The Holy Roman Empire was an attempt to resurrect the Roman Empire in the West.
Pope Leo III crowned Charlemagne as Roman Emperor in 800 AD. Charlemagne was king of the Franks, his kingdom covered most of Europe.He was a devout Catholic who maintained a close relationship with the Catholic Popes. He insisted on conversion to Christianity in the lands he conquered. In 782 he ordered the beheading of 4,500 Saxons who were caught practicing their traditional paganism after converting to Christianity.
855 to 1146 AD – There is a Jewish golden age in Spain under Moslem Rule. A primary trade of the Jews in Spain was lending money. These Jews were wealthy and educated.
Mithraism ideas were continued by Jewish Kabalah practitioners.
Sefer Yezirah (Book of Creation) – 2nd century AD (Not true, this is backdating it)
Sefer Bahir (Book of Illumination) – 1176 AD (This is actually when Kabala got going)
Sefer Zohar (Book of Enlightenment) – 1300 AD
The Kabalah alleges to reveal secret teachings in Hebrew Bible scriptures. The Kabalah explains how God created the universe.
First there is Ain – the absence of things, the Prime Cause.
Then there is Ain Soph – the Infinite, The Limitless. It literally means – without end.
Then there is the Ain Soph Aur. Aur means light. The Ain Soph Aur is Endless Light.
The Kabala concept is that the soul and the physical universe is made of Divine Light.
God’s infinite light is emanated through 10 portals to create souls and the universe.
The portals of light, or gates of light, are called Sefirot.
Kabala practitioners refer to themselves as being “Brothers of Light”.
We now have the central ideas for what was to become Rosicrucian and Freemason ideas.
Gnosticism + Kabala = Rosicrucian and Freemason basic ideas
Just like Kabala, Scientology is a path to god, ascending levels forming a Bridge to Light.
Science of Survival -
The existence of God and spiritual manifestations could be classified as theta universe…
The theta universe is a postulated reality for which there exists much evidence. If one were going to draw a diagram of this, it would be a triangle with the Supreme Being at one corner, the MEST universe at another, and the theta universe at the third.
Science of Survival -
It could be postulated that there are actually several levels of mind function. Somewhere, possibly on the fifth level, lies the functioning mind of the spiritual or religious man who has passed over the border of a consideration of MEST or of organisms and is turned toward an understanding of and a co-operation with both the theta universe and the Supreme Being.
The progress upward toward survival on higher levels is a progress as well toward God.
Advance! magazine, Issue 18 1973 – THE BRIDGE is a term originating in Dianetics to symbolize travel from unknowingness to revelation.
(Revelation means a revealing of God and his divine truths.)
Brothers of Light groups are a Bridge to Light. Scientology is a Bridge to Light.
Scientology is a masked Brothers of Light group. That is its parent, that is its roots.
Freemasons are a Brothers of Light group – ascending levels called the Bridge to Light.
Future Org Trends, an LRH lecture 9 October 1962 -
“I had an uncle who was a thirty-third degree Mason and Scottish rite, and other odd things, and Dianetics and Scientology were never quite right with him, but he finally figured out that we were trying to do exactly what they were trying to do in the Scottish rite, and after that he’s figured out it’s all right. You couldn’t now disabuse him of the fact that we’d do everything that is done in the Scottish rite. We don’t. But that is his channel of understanding. “
Obviously the Scientology Bridge is not exactly the same as the Jewish Masonic levels.
The Scientology Bridge to Light is not a road to recovered “thetan abilities”. It is a road to belief in God. Scientology is simply an updated version of Brothers of Light religion.
Scientology is Masonic Judaism… posing itself in a different dress
They’re both (all religions) – BRIDGES TO NOWHERE.
