Topic: Thetan


In the News (Wed 21 Aug 19)

  
  Thetan - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Thetan is a term coined within Scientology, roughly synonymous with "spirit" or "soul".
Scientology states that a human being is a thetan, operating or using a human body.
In this sense every human is an operating thetan because every human being is a thetan who is operating a human body.

 Operating Thetan - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Scientologists believe that one who has achieved the state of Operating Thetan is essentially a being able to operate free of the encumbrances of the material universe.
This state is represented by a symbol consisting of the letters OT with the T inside the O and each of the points of the T ending at the O's circumference.
The secrets of attaining the Operating Thetan states are taught in a series of courses called "levels", numbered with Roman numerals and starting at OT I. Operating Thetan levels up to OT VIII have been released by the Church of Scientology.

Thetans have absolute control over their bodies, but, sadly, they think they _are_ bodies (a terrible fate) and hence are bound by the MEST (matter, energy, space, time) universe.
The Thetan is also considered to be the innate source of his own projected universe, which overlaps the created universes of other Thetans in a great community of souls.
Through Scientology auditing, engrams may be neutralized and the thetan made increasingly self-aware or "enlightened." By various techniques a practical methodology was developed to enable the initiate to recognize his (or her) spiritual existence, to separate from the MEST body, and to begin to exert mental control over the MEST universe.

That is why the thetan appears to have 'instant recall' but that is only a human way of looking at it.The disadvantage is that if a memory upsets or obsesses a thetan, it is exerting an influence on the thetan from the moment it happens until he can come to terms with it.

 The Watchman Expositor: From Engrams and Thetans - Science Fiction Theology
The Thetan is thus that part of each individual which is immortal and which has become contaminated and debased by outside influence.
After the thetan has remembered the engram (bad experience), it is then removed from the reactive mind during the auditing session with the aid of the Scientology E-Meter.
It is the purpose of Scientology, through its auditing efforts to rid the thetan (person) of all engrams (bad experiences, memories) so that in turn the thetan, who now possesses a new educational perspective on reality (as a result of auditing), may advance to a higher state of being.

Thetans thus are no longer free, but are in bondage to the material universe.
This pitiful thetan slavery to MEST and one’s own conditioned ignorance continued for millennia until L. Ron Hubbard discovered the secret nature of humankind and pioneered a solution to the thetan's misery by developing a universal plan of salvation.

Thetans are *not* the equivalent of human souls at all.
Hubbard dreamed of allowing Thetans to be not merely in control of their host "meat bodies", but to be independent of them, to transcend parasitism, to become an independently Operating Thetan.

 Fishman Affidavit - OT3, summary and comments>
The bit about the thetan, the soul or spirit of a nuked-out guy, getting stuck to an electric ribbon surely reflects Margery Wakefield's comparison of them to insects: upon hearing for the first time about body thetans, she said they sounded like fleas.

The senior most of the three parts of man, obviously, is the thetan, for without the thetan there would be no mind or animation of the body, while without a body or a mind there is still animation and life in the thetan.

The purpose of this level is to free the body of hundreds of body thetans by clearing the "Xenu" implants.
Body thetans are nothing more than normal disembodied thetans that stick to a human body in a cluster.
As each thetan in a cluster is a full-fledged thetan, and thus responds to normal auditing procedure, clusters may be disassembled one thetan at a time by running the initial "contact" picture, and clearing the belief in permanent contact.

 THE BELIEFS AND TEACHINGS OF SCIENTOLOGY
Each individual person (called a "thetan") is considered to be a "thought unit" of the spiritual universe which interacts with the physical universe (MEST), usually by inhabiting a human body.
The Scientology term "thetan" is what has commonly been known as the "spirit" and it is defined in Scientology as the source of life; in the individual, it is recognized as the core of personality or essence of oneself, quite distinct and separate from the physical body or the brain.
Further, as one progresses through a series of auditing "levels," one can eventually be restored to native state and can attain the status of "operating thetan," wherein one is free of attachments to the body and, even while "exterior" to (outside) the body, one can consciously control matter, energy, space, time, thought, and life.
