Description: Hubbard comments here on ownership, space and how to make slaves.
You know, I can write people this that are spinny1, and I can write people this that are trying to audit people, and I can write people this that are having trouble with their cases, and I can talk to them about this, and I can tell them this, and I can beat my gums, and beat desks, and get down and beg and everything else, and say, “Please use Self Analysis in order to resolve this case.” And they say, “Oh no! There must be some much faster method.” No, there isn’t any faster method! Not for a real case resolution that’ll stay up there.
Why? Well, if the guy can’t have molecules as his anchor points, for heaven’s sakes get him up to a point where he’s orienting his own position with regard to the MEST universe, because he can’t orient his position in the MEST universe if it doesn’t belong to him. Well, you have to start out on the basis of letting him make anchor points2. He will eventually fall into this idea, and it will eventually come to him that these are his anchor points; he’s making his anchor points. What is his location? Is it so many light years from Sirius? Is it so many light years from Aldebaran?
That’s not any position that he cares about at all! Because he knows he doesn’t own Sirius and Aldebaran. The Catholic church, the Protestant church, the Buddhist church, the Confucius church, the “Spooderbook” church, the yak-yak idols of the Pong Pong Islands have all one thing in common: It isn’t yours. It belongs to somebody else.
The second that you can convince somebody of the fact that the universe belongs to somebody else, particularly some unreachable, untouchable, undementable being that he can never come into contest with — and it all belongs to this other being, whether his name is God or Yahweh or Christ or Seven-Come-Eleven (it doesn’t matter what this character’s name is); whether it belongs to General Motors, or any other item — the second that you’ve got him really convinced, you’ve got him gone; he’s a slave. And there’s how you make a slave. You say, “Something else is determining your geographical location, Joe, therefore you are a slave.”
