Sort of. Once we were all free living thetans.
Matter, Energy, Space, and Time did not exist.
They were invented one day by a bored thetan.
How MEST could not exist and then exist in a 'universe'
without time is never explained by Scientologists.)
A bored thetan named Xenu invented various circuses
made up of this novelty MEST stuff for the amusement
of his fellow thetans.
(actaully it may have been another thetan named Yantra who invented
this but I am not sure of the exact mythology. These things
are scattered amongst 3000 tapes LRH made over several decades
and he tended to ramble on a bit. The exact mythology of the early days
of Xenu is pretty obscure, even to most Scientologists.
But Xenu has become the main actor in the amazingly complex Scientology
Xenu myth cycles.)
But these things were traps.
Thetans were trapped in the MEST universe and given implants to
forget this fact. Why? So Xenu could conquer all thetans? Why?
Apparently cause Xenu and his buddies were bored.
Being immortal is boring. (How this could be without time to be bored in
is never explained.)
Much of the happenings in the Universe are more or less misadventures of
thetans being implanted and manipulated by various forces locked
in this bizarre MEST game Xenu started trillions of years ago.
This planet had no real thetans here en masse until 76 million
years ago. Xenu transported 200 billion persons here injected with
glycol and frozen and place them in volcanoes 76 million years ago.
These unfortumnates were the scum of the Marcab Confederation,
a space opera type confederation of numerous planets, not a very good
civilization according to Hubbard.
The bombs were detonated and the thetans then gathered up and
implanted with a 36 day long light show and released to infest Earth,
(Then known as Teegeeack). According to Hubbard, it was only about 35,000
years ago that these thetans started to take over bodies here on Earth,
which up to that time had no thetans, only GEs, genetic entities, a sort
of pseudo-soul. Shortly after Xenu's trick though, he was attacked by
'loyal officers'. After 6 years he was defeated and imprisoned in a
an undergorund electronic prison in Los Palmas, in the Canary Islands.
He is still there after 76 million years, according to Scientology mythology.
DON'T LAUGH, DAMN YOU! THIS IS SCIENCE!
Any ex-Scientologists want to add anything or correct any obvious errors I
might have made? Andy, wanna add a few lies and complaints?
