We are now on the verge of an OT boom which will shake the rafters and
rattle the hinges of this universe. And a few more universes beyond.
Ron's Journal 37 or so, circa 1984.
My interpretation of this, time-wise, is that he's talking about the next
few million years or so. To LRH, that's "on the verge." After all,
here's a person who is aware of his last 80 trillion years of existence
like the average person is aware of their current life. So to Hubbard, a
million years is like one or two, maybe a century or two, in terms of its
apparent length or significance. Throughout many of his works, he talks
about enormous periods of time in a very casual manner, for example, "why,
I remember just a few million years ago when . . . "
This is only my interpretation of the above quote. Other Scientologists,
working full-time as staff or Sea Org members, may have a much more
immediate and impatient view of Scientology's rise to power and influence
on a universal scale. I don't know. I can only speak for myself. But
one thing is indisputable. Scientology is going to rock this universe.
