    I wonder if these people ever READ the quotes they put out. “…this need for status and self-esteem evaporates in the presence of real knowledge…” If someone can point to a group of individuals that is more obsessed with status (to bestow “self-esteem”) than scientologists I would be very surprised. In scientology, status is everything.[.......]

    the top way to have status in the church is to have a lot of money
    but if you're a poor OT-something you might still impress that hot chick on the HQS course :)

    I'm glad Mike made that post.

    Everything in scientology and dianetics is status.

    The status of dianetics is "clear", the status of scientology is OT.

    Both clear and OT are but sublime. And hubbard used rhetoric to persuade as well.

    sublime means excellence, grandeur, or beauty as to inspire great admiration or awe. ( Clear and OT).

    rhetoric is the art of persuasion with it's sub components of logos, ethos and pathos.

    To obtain status in dianetics and scientology means to obtain ethos, and one must go up the Bridge to Total Freedom, completing every status level of ARCX, grade 0, grade 1, grade 11 and so on.

    Status in dianetics and scientology is but ethos. The two, sublime and rhetoric, intertwine, and can be confusing.

    That is why it is hard to figure out the trap of dianetics and scientology of no clears or OT's.

    The cult or culture of scientology is but going clear, and then OT, and then clearing the planet, all sublime.

    Did you mean oxymoron?

    Those two inscriptions should not be juxtaposed.

    Yes, I'm sure you're absolutely right. When I was on staff I didn't have a pot to piss in but I'm ashamed to say that my Clear bracelet probably helped where getting in between the sheets with some foxy little academy student was concerned. :cool:
