Hubbard lectures on the superiority of Scientology over Buddhism and Lamaism on the subject of exteriorization. Claims Buddhism and Christianity are covert efforts to kill everybody off.
Now, we have to know first and foremost how the mind goes together. Man didn’t appreciate this before. He was busy trying to save the thing and send it to heaven. Or he was trying to get it nullified or he was trying to get various things, and he was working with the spirit. And from time to time did work with the spirit. And he got no place. We probably got further in 1952 to ‘55 on the subject of exteriorization than man had ever gotten before.
All you’ve got to do is say to this person, “Phhff!” and there they are, heading past Arcturus.
Now, how the Buddhist, the Lamaist, missed this, I don’t know. But he patently knows nothing about it. The mystery of the East has been exploded. Man, anybody who would be stupid enough to sit still for twenty years and regard his navel so as to exteriorize should have his thetan examined. You don’t have to sit still for twenty years. Get somebody to say to you something on the order of – the first exteriorization process is “Try not to be three feet back of your head.” Whammmm! There they go, you know? Well, Buddhism is accomplished. That was the end of track as far as Buddhism is concerned, and that one little set of English words took care of everything they were trying to hand out.
Oh yes, they were also trying to hand out “Peace, peace on you too, brother,” and so forth. They were trying to hand out various other principles, which got into other religions, and we had people being quiet. And the whole subject is devoted to how to keep people quiet. It’s a police operation, a whole track police operation.
You’re always getting space jockeys and space-opera people who are sailing in, saying, “Let’s see. How are we going to quiet this down? These people are moving. These people are dangerous. They move. They walk around and they whistle and they sing and they move. And therefore, they’re liable to do things. So the thing we’d better do is introduce some peaceful philosophy of some kind or another that’ll just stop all this tendency toward motion.” That’s a fact.
And you get things like Buddhism, Christianity – the quiet philosophies, I call them. And of course, how quiet can you get? Dead. And you might say it’s a covert effort to kill everybody off.
