    How does a Scientologist know when they have reached the full EP of Scientology?

    It is time to leave Scientology when:

    Your sessions end with FN, Cog VGIs, but....

    Your cognition is "Scientology doesn't work". ​

    Are there any other clues that it's time to leave Scientology?

    The moment you realize that words like Dev-t and Kluge have become a regularly used part of your daily vocabulary.

    The moment your head is on the chopping block for applying the Church's own creed, or asserting the *right* to apply it.

    :roflmao:

    HolyHell, that word! I never looked it up until now that you mention it.

    The way it is used in the S.O. actually is a wrong definition, synonymous with "enmest" or "messy, disordered things".

    kludge |kloōj| (also kluge) informal
    noun
    an ill-assorted collection of parts assembled to fulfill a particular purpose.
    • Computing a machine, system, or program that has been badly put together.
    verb [ trans. ]
    use ill-assorted parts to make (something) : Hugh had to kludge something together.
    ORIGIN 1960s (originally U.S.): invented word, perhaps symbolic.​


    I need to used it in a sentence until I feel good about it:

    I could not stop laughing when I cleared my closet of a lifetime of
    Scientology kluge, throwing all those freaking books, tapes and meters in the garbage.

    Yeah, I feel good about it now! :D

    Makes you wonder if mocking up a kluge would be a regular S.O. Dev-t cycle.

    (If that made sense to you then NOW is the time to BLOW!)

    When you spend 3 days building a clay demo of the word Kluge to get a Fail by the Sup.

    You know it's time to leave Scientology when..

    ...there's a brand new tech breakthrough and rundown by L Ron that cures every problem the Bridge hasn't, but Ron's been dead or incapacitated for over 25 years.

    You, personally, are trying to give fools wins and attempting to take responsibility for the ineptitude and cupidity of those (allegedly) in charge.

    when you realize ...

    It's time to blow when you realize that the redge is recycling the same old lies.

    It's time to blow when you realize that you are the last one around of anyone who came in when you did.

    It's time to blow when the alibi stories to explain why things are so upgaphugged are being recycled, and you remember the last time they told the same horseshit

    It's time to blow when you realize that you are too old and make too much money to live in a shit4crackerbox apartment instead of a nice home

    It's time to blow when you realize that you are too old and make too much money to be driving an ancient shit4car that you have to do constant work on to drive

    It's time to blow when you realize that you never get invited to any family functions and don't have any friends

    It's time to blow when you cognite that now is the best time to blow.

    It's time to leave when OT's try to make everyone else make it go right.

    What's the point of being OT?

    Time ta go when....

    It dawns on you, this isn't the world. You're broke, hungry, in debt, disassociated from your friends and family, stressed, unhappy, spent years trying to pay for things you already have :duh:, you're dog has left you, the snow is melting but still staying on your head, the cat left you for a mouse.
    Sry guys, I know I'm a bit crude, but to me the time to leave is just after you enter the doors.
