|I HAVE BEEN TRICKED BY SCIENTOLOGY
the follower of the religion called Scientology is convinced
that once he has reached a level called "OT 8", he will achieve
the skills of those Hindu gurus who manage to travel through
space without their bodies and who carry out magical actions
cancelling physical laws. Also, future reincarnations as human
beings or as animals are supposed to cease — thus conquering
immortality! — and the believer is supposed to meet with
happiness and success in his or her present life. This is what
the founder of Scientology, Ron Hubbard, has promised.
Unfortunately, ten years ago, I fell into the trap set by
this gentleman. To achieve the state of "OT 8" one had to make a
"fixed donation" (irrelevant of one's income) of at least 500
million Italian Lire [translator's note: more than 250.000
Euros]. I know this well, because, besides that amount, I also
spent a further 8000 dollars to find harmony with my husband,
who is an OT too!
When I finally reached the level of "OT 8" the results I
obtained were: a divorce, heart trouble, head ache and
tremendous nightmares every night (including an aggression by a
reptilian monster which puts me into a state of depression for
the whole day).
Luckily I have not renounced by Catholic faith, so I am still
able to think with my own head. Today there is a good
psychiatrist who is helping me to erase the outcome of the
psychophysical violence, of the interference in my private life
and of all the deceptions committed by the staff of Scientology.
And I am still waiting to get my money back.
