Description: Hubbard talks about his discovery of how souls are implanted into bodies with electronic cyclone implant machines; says the body to a theta body is like having a sliver in your thumb.
Your attitude towards MEST bodies has gone down to the level of, “I own it and it’s mine.” That is interesting, you are about as solidly attached to your MEST as you are to the moon. You could step off of it as easily as you could lift an inverted cup off a cube of sugar. There you actually have a picture to some degree of a theta body fitted over a MEST body. There has been a lot of confusion about this. There are implants back along the line, lots of nice beautiful implants that put a soul into you. That’s sweet of them, so they put this electronic spinning cone down through your theta body and they say: “Now you have a soul.” They say: “It’s attached to you by a string.” That is an illusion, and of course after that, when you try to separate, you try to take your theta body out of the middle of your MEST body. So you go through the contortions of trying to step out of your MEST body to be your theta body. Of course you aren’t in yourself, so naturally you can’t. Very amusing! If you sit around and concentrate hard enough to get the physical body into obedience so that the MEST body can separate (as in the practice of yoga) all you do is slow the theta body down to a point where it can’t lift itself off.
This is a study in motion, it’s a study in beingness, and no matter how difficult it might be to crack this riddle, its’ solution is ridiculously simple. You know, we’ve been a long time trying to figure out these human beings. Like, “Let’s look at these human beings, are the theta bodies inside or outside?” Now you put them on a meter and you say: “Is your soul inside your MEST body?” and you always get a bop. Well, I believed the bop until I found out that no Homo sapien that I could locate could step outside of himself, being inside of himself. So I began to look for an implant, and I found it. The implant puts in your . . . here is your theta body and it’s very nice, this implant runs your soul into you like this, and it’s tied to you. It’s just an electronic illusion. So, you ask somebody to start monkeying with his theta body, and if you stress it real hard you will get this other (the Soul Implant Incident) in restimulation you see, and he will try to lift this spinning cone out of his head.
Did you ever have the feeling that the top of your head was flat? Well, that is the result of that incident. It has other results too, but other things can do it. They just lower this spinning electronic cyclone right down inside of you. Now this is very interesting, because very early on the track, unbeknownst to the people who were planting this one, there is an incident called, “The Cyclone.” The cyclone comes along and hits you one day, and tears you all to pieces, and you go back together wrong way to, and it makes you feel very sad.
Now, there is a terrible terrible liability to being immortal. Immortality has a great liability to it if you can’t process it out, because it just means that things keep piling up on you. Look at all you can find to worry about in just one lifetime. You start adding on, and adding on, and after a while you will think, “There is no solution to these lifetimes, there is no solution for the whole track, so the best thing to do is to die and forget about it. So if you decided that, you will say: “I must have a soul of some sort.” You sense that, since you know you have.
So, when they put in the implant it generally keys in “The Cyclone.” Boy, it makes a real tough incident if you start to audit it, because you start to audit it and start to get yourself out, and the next thing you feel yourself all falling to pieces and so on. That is not what it’s like to have a theta body. An actual picture of your situation would be very difficult to draw. In the first place, what you take for your theta body is wave emanation which you are originating.
You can make that big or small, and you can grow larger or smaller; it doesn’t matter. A picture of the situation would probably look like this except a bit more graceful.
Here is a being, and there is his theta body, that’s all. Now it is about as comfortable to have a MEST body inside your theta body as it is to have a sliver in your finger. It’s not comfortable, but if you have to do it, you have to do it. If you want everybody else to be arrestable and laborable, and so forth – you finally decide that it is the best thing to do, but it is not very natural.
