(Otto Roos has been involved with scientology since the late 50's, and worked closely with L.Ron Hubbard for a number of years. In our next number we bring an article of his on his experiences, good and bad, while in close association with LRH.)
Making a Technology which handles life and living dependant upon the presence of a particular -person-, an individual, amounts to handing over control over oneself to another. This person can then, if he so desires, force all and sundry to do what he orders on penalty of denying him/her the life bringing Data/Technology.
Auditing data, which was originally intended for all of Man, eventually deteriorated into something available only to those who did another's bidding without query or self determinism in the matter.
Any -Identity- representing Auditing Tech is not only not acceptable, it is -Untruth- and it makes the Tech unworkable as it violates the very reason for the Tech, i.e. the increase of Self Determinism.
Despite my having received requests in that direction, I never had any intention of becoming yet another 'Source' in the independent field, it is a not needed item - correct application of the Tech is! The old theory was that one needed this top identity, the -person-, to align oneself and one's own actions by. It was LRH's idea as to how to keep the show together, and others in line. It failed!
I was in this position, representing Standard Tech, for years. In fact, the reason LRH originally established the Class XII Tech Flub Catch Hat was to get the Tech applied and continued the way it should be.
The fault in LRH's reasoning as 'Sole Source' was that one does not need an identity which represents something or other, least of all the Tech.
Those who do need such a terminal, if they truly want to attain one of the goals of auditing, i.e. lack of dependency, better not need it for too long. The only terminal which represents the Tech for me is the Tech itself, not any -person-, not even LRH.
I would never work to keep some identity or other in function in order to salvage a movement, for the simple reason that the basic premise that such is needed, or even workable in the long run, is needed, or even workable in the long run, is false.
The stability comes from the -truth- in the -data-. It does not stem from any identity.
The only thing in all of existence worth striving for is to convey the message, and the skills, to enable all to become -their own- stable datum
There is an entire planet out there which wants and needs auditing Tech. So why waste time fighting battles? Just getting on -delivering- is what the Tech/Policy/Admin is all about. It's a good game, in fact there's no other game. It is the only game. If people don't want to play it, all right - everybody has the right to play or not. But to look for some identity, guru, or other type 'master', becoming dependant on him/her to help one out of one's problems, directly conflicts with the purposes and practice of any case handling.
The person who truly -owns- the data serves only the Tech, and never has to sell it short for economic, PR, false 'status', or any other reason.
There is no 'new' Tech, this I can tell you. The only difficulty is to know -what- part of the Tech to use -when-, to handle what.
You have to recognize the next step when it comes, and you have to know, or have the ability to find out, how to handle it.
There are more advanced procedures. In the old days the ability to handle these was shown in the different auditor classifications. Although these classifications may at times have been used for status, their basic idea was to indicate an increased level of skill and ability to handle more advanced procedures, i.e. a degree of KRC!
To make the Tech dependant upon an identity, a particular individual, which happened in the old church, where a Founder was elevated to god like status, may well make such a 'god' interesting but doesn't help anybody!
Dependence may be well and good for those who need tin pot gods but making oneself dependant on them has very little use for people who want to get on, up, and in increased ARC with themselves and their environments.
