    Scientology TV is the best thing to happen to television — says Scientology

    When LRH was still alive Issue Authority was very strict about mixing the symbols with anything not specifically approved for use with the symbols. This made it very difficult to present the symbols creatively and I have watched with amusement as they have tossed out the old playbook and appear to struggle with ever new levels of gaudiness to spruce up symbol presentation. But now they have piled gaudiness upon gaudiness as neo-space opera art deco motifs are no longer adequate so they literally stack symbols on top of symbols like a family crest imagined during a fever dream.

    Here we have the OT symbol embellished with a border pattern appropriately suggestive of fundamentalist Islamic calligraphy. Then stacked on that is this triple X symbol generally associated with movie ratings, or is that supposed to be a chain link fence? Then on top of the triple X is stacked the flourishes from the Freewinds logo. I guess these are innocently enough supposed to be suggestive of wind or waves or motion, or are they predator scratches? Then most appropriately topping of all of this we have a crown, the universal symbol of empire and royalty as though they are finally coming out as a dictatorship or papal dynasty.

    Hubbard liked to issue formal descriptions of all the deep Thelemic type significances of his symbology and I would dearly love to see the thinking behind this.

    "Now, it was time to zero in, to get a closer look at the intersection of the Golden Age of Tech and the Golden Age of Dissemination...."

    All these Golden Ages! Getting difficult to keep track of them all.
